Defeated Spokane Bunch by
Narrow Margin in Inter
Larger attendance, greater enthusi
asm, closer contests, and better
weather, made' the second annual
interscholastic field meet and orator
ical contest even more successful than
the one held last year. Friday and
Saturday of last week the town was
taken possession of by the be-ribboned
and enthusiastic representatives of the
various high schools of the eastern part
of the state, gathered here to contest
on the forum and in the arena under
the direction of the State College.
Seventeen high schools had represen
tatives in the athletic events—Clarks
ton, Colfax, Davenport, Ellensburg,
Ritzville, Spokane, Sunnyside, Walla
Walla, Waterville, Wenatchee, North
Yakima, and Lewiston, Idaho. The
College bore the expenses of four
ahtletes and one orator from each
school, but many availed themsolves
of the privilege of sending a larger
number at their own expense, Spokane,
for example, having thirteen men on
the field. The total number of con
testants in the Yield sports was 133, as
against 100 last year. Counting the
trainers and numerous spectators and
"rooters" who accompanied the con
testants, there were probably 800 or
1000 visitors in Pullman on Saturday.
Since the hotels and lodging houses
were inadequate to care for so large a
number, student committees had made
a thorough canvass of the homes of
the town and had a complete list of
Wt place* where rooms or board could
be obtained. Professor Sampson, in
charge of the entertainment committee
was stationed with a corps of guides,
wearing distinctive badges, at the
Palace hotel and from there the new
arrivals were assigned convenient
quarters for their short stay in the
Not only were the homes of hopit
able citizens thrown open to the
visitors, but the dormitories on the
hill were crowded beyond their
capacity. The girls of Stevens hall
slept four in a bed and many found
temporary quarters in the attic. It
was desired to give the visiting
athletes places 'near the athletic
field, for their own convenience,so the
boys of Ferry Hall slept in tents, in
the armory or on the floors of their
rooms and took their meals down
Early trains brought many visitors,
and not a few drove in from near-by
towns,but the larger number came in
on the special trains from Spokane
and Colfax. The train from. Spokane
and intermediate points arrived about
5:30 Friday afternoon, and was met at
the depot by the cadet band, the re-

ception committee, and a large number
Owing to the large number of en
tries, the athletic events had to be
divided into three stages—prelim-
inaries, semi-finals, and finals. The
tryouts were held Friday afternoon
and Saturday morning, leaving the
final and decisive events for Saturday
The interscholastic was not only an
athletic event, but included one orator
ical contest. Fully 800 people gathered
Friday evening in the armory to hear
young men and women from fifteen
different high schools try for forensic
h >nors. The program was better
than last year, each contestant well
earning the plaudits of the crowd
and the congratulations of his friends.
First place was awarded to Chester
Lehmann of Spokane, second to Miss
Eva Berry of Colfax, third, Miss Ethel
Bevard, Ritzville, and fourth, Grova
