Hopefully this year (100 years later) will prove as grand for our berry farmers as 1915 did!

This Week in HISTORY!
February 25, 1915

Washington’s birthday was duly celebrated in Lynden by the schools and bank closing.

1915 PROMISING FOR BERRY MEN – That 1915 will be a successful season for berry growers in this district was practically assured at the meeting of the Berry Growers’ Association Thursday afternoon in Jamieson’s hall, when an offer of four cents a pound was received for the entire crop and arrangements were made to see that the Lynden cannery was run.

E. Edson has donated a fine six-foot mirror for the high school dressing rooms.

Jack Gale took some excellent views of the high school building last week. Many are sending them to friends out of town to show the progress Lynden is making.

Robert Van Mersbergen had one of his finger nails torn off Monday while leading a horse.

Delicious home-made pies, pastry and cake will be on sale at the library Saturday. Each purchase will help support that institution.

FOR SALE-Cedar Fence Posts, four cents on my place. G. H. Whipple. Northwood.

NOTICE-I wish to warn all people to keep their bird dogs off my property. S. H. Bradley

NORTH BELLINGHAM WINS TOURNAMENT – North Bellingham was awarded the pennant in the championship basketball tournament held in Lynden Friday and Saturday. Lynden was awarded the pennant for conduct and appearance on a vote of the visiting superintendents.

WE ARE PRO-AMERICANS. (From an address of the President of the United States Woodrow Wilson-an address equally notable for its justice and its timeliness):
“Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence (I conjure you to believe me, fellow citizens) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government. But that jealousy, to be useful, must be impartial.* * * The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign relations is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connections as possible. Europe has a set of primary interests, which to us have none, or very remote, relation. Hence she must be engaged in frequent controversies, the causes of which are essentially foreign to our concerns. Hence, therefore it must be unwise in us to implicate ourselves, by artificial ties, in the ordinary vicissitudes of her politics, or the ordinary combinations and collisions of her friendships or enmities.
“Our detached and distant situation invites and enables us to pursue a different course. * * * Why forego the advantages of so peculiar a situation? Why quit our own ground to stand on foreign ground? Why, by entwining our destiny with that of any part of Europe, entangle our peace and prosperity in the tolls of European ambition, rivalship, interest, humor or caprice?
President Wilson has lived up to the Americanism of these words. He is a pro-American. So was the author of the paragraphs which we have quoted at such length from his farewell Address-the first President of the United States, whose birthday we celebrate: George Washington.
