-Force of Men Who Have lU__
*A Working nt Colfax Will lie
At last the street paving contract

whereupon they promptly desisted.
From now on they propose to keep
things humming. They have made
an arrangement with the Warren
Construction company, which ex
| pected to complete Its contracts at
I Colfax on Tuesday, to bring their
mixing plant here at once with their
entire force of men. These men, in
addition to those already at work
here, will insure the prompt comple

weather is favorable.
A good start has been made on the
curbing along Star Route street and
_i the mixer and force of men ar
rive from Colfax this week, as la
expected, the paving can be put
down as fast as the, grading is com
pleted. The rock crusher has been
working steadily and there will be
no delays on account of the supply
of crushed rock. Now that harvest
is over plenty of laborers can be se
cured and the contractors will make
t strenuous effort to complete the
paving before the cold weather

A MISSION' WORKER
Fllim FAR ALASKA
Mi" M. it. WI K htin_n Tells of What
Is Betas IVone for the Indians
The Women's Guild of the Episco
pal church met at the home or Mrs
B. O. Cathcart Tuesday afternoon
and listened to a very Interesting
talk by Miss M. R. Wightman, who
's in charge of the Episcopal mission
at Salchaket, Alaska. For three
years she has been at this little In
dian villas-- in the Interior of Alas
ka, many miles away from any other
settlement, and the story of her
work and hardships is full of In
spiration and pathos. Thee are be
tween 50 and 60 Indians In the set
tlement and when she went ther-?
they were all living In three huts,
dirty, ignorant and degraded. To
day each family have their own
cabin, and the parents and children
take pride in being clean. The boys
are learning trades and the girls
sewing and all are studying hard.
They call Miss Wightman thel
"White Mother," and bring all their
troubles to her for solution.
The Indians make very pretty
grass baskets, bags of moose and
caribou hides and bird skins, and
moccasins. The bags and moccasins
are handsomely ornamented with
beads. The generosity of these sim
ple people is almost pathetic. While
they have so little themselves and
merely the log walls of a church,
the girls of the mission made and
sold $28 worth of baskets and bags
and contributed the money toward
the re-building of a church at Syra
cuse, N. V., which had been de
stroyed by fire.
Miss Wightman Is going east on
a furlough to visit her mother,
whom she has not seen for seven
years, and expects to return to her
post in Alaska next summer.

PULLMAN. WASHINGTON, FRIDAY. OCTOBER 18. 1912
Annual Football Game Between W. S. C. and
U. of I. Promises to Be Hard Fought
and Full of Thrills
This afternoon on Rogers Field
will occur the biggest athletic event
of the year, the annual football
game between the U. of I. and the
W. S. C. It Is a matter of record
that more interest is taken In thi.-,
contest than in any other at either
of the big schools. There Is always
a larger attendance and more en
thusiasm than at the rest of the
games, no matter whether the con
test is held in Moscow or at Full
man. This year Idaho has an un
usually strong team of veterans lv
whom the residents of the city over
the line have great confidence, and
they are coming in unusual num
bers to root at the game.
The strength of the W. S. C. team
is problematical. Render has some
first class material and has been
working hard developing the dif
ferent parts of his machine but hni*
not had an opportunity to assemble
them and tost out the combination
as a whole. There will be but three
members of last year's team in th-3
line-up. Capitain Joe Harter, one of
the best linesmen the College has
ever produced, will not be able to
play on account of a bad ankle, and
his absence will be a heavy handi
cap, as he was a tower of strength
on both defense and offense.
The following table shows the
complete list of /football scores be
tween Idaho nnd XV. S. C. We are
In the lead just one game out of the
14 played. The 1908 game, when
Joe Bunch Halm was taken out, re-;
suited In a tie.

"Straight football ooly" is the
statement issuing from Coach Ben
der's council room. No passes will
be used, as the team is not consid
ered sufficiently adept In their use
to justify the risk evolved in using
them. W. S. C. has a Blight edge
on the Idahoans in the matter of
weight and also possibly in tht speed
ROGERS FIELD TODAY
•nd strength of the back field and
these assets will be used to their
fullest extent In the big game. With
only two and a half yards to make
on each down the chances of making
first down are thus rendered very
good. Mr. Render has evolved a
series of plays which have been
working with excellent effect on the
second team and should tin* men
work them as well when they face
Idaho the chances are that they will
be very effective.
In the punting department F.
Goff is being used strongly with
Kienholtz and It is not yet settled
as to who will be the kicker in the
big game. Stories of Idaho's prow
ess in this department has nerved
the Crimson and Gray hooters to do
their best In practice and as a result
the kicking has greatly improved
since the opening of the season.
Coach Bender has not as yet
picked a team and claims to be us
much up ln the air as to who he will
play Friday as ever, and the way he
has worked his men in scrimmages
justifies this assertion. So far there
are three men for every position,
any one of whom is apt to be
chosen. Nearly every man on the
squad of over 30 men has been given
a chance to work out with the var
sity and nearly all of the men who
have been considered first string
men have been given lengthy ses
sions with the scrubs, •
lii the back field Foster has been
used, largely at full, but Goodyear
and Wexler have such qualities to
recommend them and have done
•uch excellent work recently that
they may leave the Wenatchee lad
on the side lines. Kienholtz, last
year's star half, and Coulter, his
running mate on the other side are
both, pressed hard, the former by
Sattefthwaite, a new acquisition,
while Coulter's position is threat
ened by Cook, the Ellensburg sprint
er, and Tweed ,one of Wenatchee's
constellation of last year. Durham,
captain and star field general on
Spokane's 1910 team, has rather up
set the situation as to quarterback
by appearing for practice about a
week ago and promises to make it a
close triangular race between him
self, Gaddis and Rock. On the line
the same conditions prevail.
"Shorty" Harter has as able rivals
for the pivotal position, Art Goff and
Langdon. At guards Bohler, Feder
sohn and Humphries are fighting it
out on the right wing, and Suver,
Christiansen and Heg on the left.
Captain Joe Harter has Peterson
as a rival for the right tackle posi
tion, while Applequist, F. Goff and
Love are neck and neck in the race
for the other tackle position.

of the faculty and those of longer
standing met, and made or renewed
acquaintance, and while an orchestra
from behind a screen of palms played
selections excellently chosen- as an
-accompaniment to what was the real
entertainment, old and new friends
strengthened the bonds of fellowship
and community interest which make
the life of a group of college people
so much worth while. Refreshments
were served under the deft superin
tendence of Miss Paterson, assisted
by a corpß of College girls; and the
company, following the custom at
such gatherings which bids fair to
become a tradition, were on the way
to their homes soon after 11 o'clock.

Issued, the faculty assembled In
force, but without being strong
enough In numbers to tax accommo-
