NEXT TUESDAY'S GAME
It is up to the people of Pullman
to see that there is a large attendance
at the football game between W. S. C.
and Puget Sound University at the
college grounds next Tuesday, Octo
ber 19. This is bound to be a good
game and the visiting team conies a
long way and the expenses are heavy.
| Pullman citizens owe it to the college
to patronize these games liberally and
assist in making the athletic depart
ment self-sustaining. Give the team
i a royal send-off next Tuesday. It
I will be time and money well spent.

The football team from the Uni
versity of Puget Sound will be
with us a part of next week and
do battle with Coach Kienholz's
trip-hammer areista, on Tuesday
i afternoon October 19th. The Uni
'■vernity boya had an off year in
11908, met many defeats and few
1 victories but their "old stand-by"
Dr. Nace, back as head coach, and
several new men of no mean abil
ity on the squad this year, they
expect better results as soon as
the bunch gets working together.
Decker, their halfback, weighs
170 pounds, played three years on
th» U. team, He would be a star
in any company. T. Beardsley at
right half is a new man and a
line smasher, always good for a
few yards. Thomas, the new full
back, is no stranger on the Uni
versity of Missouri gridiron and
has evidently had some one to
show him. K. Atterbury and Met
calf are the two best ends P. S. U.
has had for some time and man
ager Neal C. Jamison says, "They
are both dandies." Case, at
guard will keep at least one man
busy. Van Marnin on the other
side of the center, and Christian
sen is also a good man. Green
and Boore play the tackle posi
tions well and W. Beardsley at
I quarter is a field general, who
keeps the opposing side guessing
all the time.
We expect a good game and
feel that it is the duty of every
member of the college to be on
the side lines, not only to en
courage the home team but show
the visitor that we love true sport
and can appreciate a good play
no matter who makes it.
Coach Goldsworthy, Captain W.
8. C. '06, will bring the Cheney
State Normal here for a game
with the second team October 30.
Prof. Huston has direct charge of
the second team and ho is getting
some good work out of them. Some
of the second team men have
never had football suits on before
but they are learning rapidly and
we believe that Prof. Huston will
be pleased with their actions when
they meet a team of their own
