The featured act on at the regular
session of the city council Thursday
night was the reading of petitions ask
ing that the pool and billiard room li

These petitions, with accompanying

The annual Junior "Prom" given
at the college gymnasium last night
in honor of the Senior class [was un
doubtedly the most elaborate ball ever
seen in Pullman. The services of two
professional decoraters from Walla
Walla had been secured and their
efforts, combined with several days
work by the Junior class made the
commodious assembly room of the
gymnasium a place of dazzling beauty.
The whole effect was in imitation of a
winter scene; the gallery railing and
overhead beams were covered with
fringes of white, representing icicles,

the stand occupied by the orchestra re
sembled a deep drift of snov/, while
from over head during some of the
numbers myriad flakes of confetti
snowed upon the dancers below.
Numbers of Japanese lanterns half
concealed among the festoons above,
and an immense golden moon gave a
very soft and beautiful light effect.
In the midst of this brilliant scene
gathered the reception committee,
M. R. Klepper, president of the '07
class, Miss Sophie Ormsbee, and the
patronesses, Mesdames J. J. Browne,
VanDoren, Bryan, McGregor, Kim
mel and Andrews. When everyone
had passed in, the grand march was
formed, Juniors first, followed by the
patronesses, Seniors, faculty and the
other classes. At the conclusion of
the grand march Mr. Fulton and Mrs.
Strong led the first cotillion number,
distributing carnations as favors. For
the next number an immense snow ball
was rolled in, which was broken up
into smaller fragments, and partners
were chosen by throwing the snow
balls. The third number concluded the
cotillion part of the program. The
college orchestra furnished the music
for the entire evening.
For refreshments punch was drawn
up from a wooden well curb in ''the
old oaken bucket". Cozy corners were
abundant and the side rooms had been
fitted up for parlors. The event sur
passed the efTort of any previous
class, and in fact was the most brill
iant social event ever held in the city.

WIN FROM U. Of M.
State College Team at Last Escapes
From its Hoodoo of
The long continued "hoodoo" which
has cast its spell over the debating
career of the college was broken
Thursday night when the local team
defeated the visitors from the Univer
sity of Montana. The question was,
'' Reßolved, that aside from the ques
tion of constitutionality the United
States should adopt a general federal
income tax." The affirmative was
upheld by the visitors, Messrs. Ralph
L. Harmon, John D. Jones and Law
rence E. Goodbourn. The negative
was maintained by F. 0. Kreager,
Miss Sophie L. Ormsbee and Arthur I.
The Montana boys claimed that in
sufficient revenues demanded a supple
mentary system of taxation, and that
the need would best be supplied by
the income tax which was a cheap,
flexible and practicable system, suc
cessfully administered in foreign
countries. The negative denied that
there was need of more revenue, main
tained that the present plan met all
| the requirements of a good tax system
i and that the income tax had been
proved to be not adaptable to Ameri
A unanimous decision for the nega
tive was rendered by the judges,
Hon. J. T. Buchanan and Rev. U. F.
Hawk of Spokane, and Judge Edwin
Mcßee of Rathdrum, Idaho. After
the debate a reception for the visiting
team was given at Stevenß Hall. The
program was added to by the singing
of Miss Clara BueU and a piano solo
by Miss Emily Wood.
