Curious about what was going on in Ohop Valley in 1929? Well, you can stop wondering.

This issue of Ohop Weekly published March 15, 1929, by the Edgerton School, has a little of everything — and some of it as timely today as yesterday). Editor in Charge was Jewel Anderson.

Here were this week’s stories:
• Laurence Anderson feels we should protect our fish and wildlife more.
• Mr. and Mrs. Hedborg, Olava Kjelstad and the Ohop Grange Orchestra visited Mrs. Asplund.
Anna Peterson, Alice Peterson, Edwin Anderson and Andrew Anderson are down with the flu.
• A tie mill is going in near the Hedborg farm.
• A one-act farce, Trouble Brewing, was being performed in Eatonville.
• Mrs. Tucker and Mrs. Pratt made a visit to the school.
• The Pierce County Game Commission gave a talk to the students,  The Conservation of Bird life and Fish.
• The first baseball game went six innings. Players were Anna Henricksen, Helen Peterson, Velma LeMaster, and Laurence Anderson.
•  Jewel Anderson shared her poetry.
• Lastly, Harry notes that Eleanor came to school with him yesterday. (Hmmm, makes you wonder.)
