LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL BOYS WIN
FAST FOOTBALL GAME FROM
On last Saturday, November 4,
Colfax played the strong Itosalia
team, and altho outweighed IL' or 15
pounds to the man. succeeded in de
feating them by a score of Ll-0.
Both touchdowns and the one goal
were made by halfback, Sam Morri
son, who played a strong consistant
game throughout the entire period.
Chapman played a dashing game at
left half, and Cox did well at full.
Oliver at quarter and Skaife at
tackle played good games.
Following is an account of the
game by quarters.
Rosalia kicked off to Colfax and j
the ball was downed on the latters
30-yard line. Rosalia fought fiercely !
and Colfax was soon forced to punt. I
Cox made a good kick. Colfax se-i
cured the ball again and tried for a j
place on Rosalia's 30-jrard line, but i
the attempt was blocked. After the)
kick out Rosalia grabbed a Colfax |
forward pass and punted. Colfax
carried the ball back to about the
center of the held. A fake was
worked, Morrison shook himself
clear with the ball, and started down i
the field for a touchdown. Half the!
Rosalia team were after him but !
Colfax High's fastest sprinter had j
the ball and they could not catch him
and he carried it over the line for the
first score of the game. A strong j
wind made ('ox's try for a i^oal a
failure. Score: Colfax .">, Rosalia 0.
The Becond quarter of the game
was by far the most exciting. Ro
salia played a much harder, fiercer
game. They secured the ball and
punted. Colfax was soon forced to
return the punt but the wind carried
it out of bounds. Rosalia secured
the ball but was shoved back 15
yards on their first attempt to gain.
The ball went over but Rosalia se
cured it again on a fumble in playing
Meyers at tackle around. The Ro
salia team then took heart and play
ed better than ever. Securing a poor
punt they carried the ball by line
bucks and short end runs to within
easy striking distance of Colfax's
goal. There was great danger of the
score being tied for the line was giv
ing way. At this juncture Coach
Pearse put in Gofl and 1-omraason
who had been kept out up to this
time because of injuries in other
games. Goff went, in at tackle and
Lommason at guard. With these two
towers of strength the line held and
Rosalia lost the ball on downs. Col
fax secured it and punted out of
t danger for the time being. But Ro
salia carried the ball back ;igain and
soon had it on the 29 yard line. From
this point a clever forward pass was
worked. The end secured the ball,
ran to within 6 feet of the Colfax
goal line and only a well executed
tackle by Quarterback Oliver saved
the day. Rosalia might have carried
the ball over had not time been call
ed at this critical moment. Score:
Colfax 5, Rosalia 0.
A low kick off gave the Rosalia
center the ball. He was downed in
his tracks and his team-mates carried
the ball on for 10 or 15 yards when
it went over. From this point Mor
rison made a splendid 50 yard run to
Rosalia's 10-yard line. A forward
pass to DePledge gained a little. A
second score assured but the ball was
fumbled by the Colfax backs and
Luden punted it out of danger. A
long run by Chapman carried it back
well on the way toward the goal
again and three smashing plays thru
tackle by Morrison. Cox and Chap
man in succession took it. to within
easy scoring distance again. But
once more a fumble robbed Colfax of
a score. Again Luden booted it out
of danger. But the third ttme was
the charm. Securing the ball about
the middle of the field Colfax worked
another clever fake and Morrison
carried the ball over, planting it
squarely between the goal posts. A
minute later he kicked the goal and
the score stood 11-0.
Rosalia took the ball but fumbled
the first time. An exchange of punts
followed. Again Rosalia threatened
our goal but lost their last chance to
score on a fumble by their full back
Luden. Colfax was then forced to
punt. The ball see-sawed back and
forth from this time on and the game
ended with it in the possession of
Colfax on Rosalia's 30-yard line.
The game was the best and clean
est played this year. Only once was
Colfax penalized and then for an off
side play due to the nervousness of
one of the players. Rosalia was not
penalized at all. The feeling between
the two teams was fine and the spirit
on the side lines commendable.
Schlafer at Quarter played a fine
game for the Rosalia boys. Luden at
full-back did the best work for his
team, his smashing line bucks and
short end runs netting big gains.
Golf and Lommason played their
usual splendid game, and had they
not gone in when they did the score
would probably have been tied or
perhaps ended in a victory for Ro
The officials were Coulter and
Kienholta of \V. S. C, Linesmen
Spack of Colfax and Swede of Ro
Miss Edna MoCroskey and Miss
Lulu Davis were Colfax visitors at
the game. Prof. Ingham, a former
Colfax teacher, came over from Mai
den to witness the game. He ex
pressed himself as well pleased with
the showing of the Colfax boys over
their heavier opponents.
Next Friday the team leaves for
Lewiston where they play the high
school team of that plate. After this
gome all their efforts will be concen
trated on winning the annual contest
with Pullman High School on Novem
ber 18. Pullman won the game last
year by the scant score of 3-0 and
Colfax is anxious to show that they
can turn the tables this year on their
old rivals. A large crowd should at
tend this last and most important
game of the season. The previous
attendance has not been what it
should be and It is hoped that many
more will come out to this game.
"THK WHITi: SISTER"
Jeanne Towler Takes Leading Hole
in Kvcellent Play.
Coming to the Ridgeway theater
this Friday, Nov. 10, is Jeanne Tow
ler and her splendid company in that
wonderful play "The White Sister."
One of the best known dramatic crit
ics of Chicago who witnessed the first
performance of Miss Towler in the
title role of this play, said in part—
"To those who have not seen this dis
tinguished player in one of the most
striking roles she has ever assumed,
it should be sufficient to say that it
will be an absolute misfortune to
miss this opportunity of seeing a play
of powerful grip and intense interest
—that is, if you desire for your
dramatic enlightment and entertain
ment a star of the first rank and
what ran be truthfully claimed as
America's most beautiful and emo
tional actress in one of the highest
class offerings we have submitted to
us for approval."

charge of the body. A brother lives

Many Changes in Show.
"The Flirting Princess" was a live
ly show from start to finish and tht
audience at the Ridgeway last Fri
day night witnessed a constant
change of bright scenes. An interest
ing theme running through the two
acts gave a steadiness to the light
opera which was pleasing. The array
of costumes were dazzling and the
rapidity with which the changes were
made was a source of satisfaction.
The one drawback to the show was
the fact that some of it. was cut owing
to the small audience.
Pleasantly Located in (Jet-many.
Mrs. Louise Michaelsen, who went
to Germany with her daughter a few
weeks ago, writes that they are per
manentely located in a pleasant flat
and are enjoying Berlin. Their ad
dress is lenaer Strasse 19, W. Berlin,
Pah users in Montana.
So many former residents of the
Palouse country have settled on a
bench north of Great Falls, Montana,
that they have named their locality
"Palouse Bench." A Sunday school
has been organized and is known as
the Palouse Bench Sunday school.
