Cast at Special Election, of Which i
550 Were Favorable to
The proposed additional levy of
seven mills for school maintenance
was ratified by the citizens at the
special school election last Tuesday
by a vote of 550 to 316. The total
vote, 866, was the largest, by far,
ever east at a school election in
Pullman, and may be taken as a re- j
liable criterion of the sentiment of
the people on the mooted question. I
The special seven mill levy, together
with the funds available from other I
sources, will give the district a total
of |59,950 for next year, a sum suf- ;
ficient to maintain the present stand
ard of the school without a reduc
tion in salaries, and to provide the
funds necessary to open the Frank
lin building on Methodist (hill to
take care of the overflow of pupils. .
The election was the second on
the proposed levy within the month.

the opponents of the levy, with less
than 200 votes cast. Much interest !

THE LATEST PROPOSAL
Efforts Will lie Made to Organize
Youngsters <>r Community Into
Kami —Carson Father of
A juvenile band for the city of
Pullman is proposed hy the chamber
of commerce, and the matter has
been referred tor action to Ihe pres
ent Boy Scout committee, with Pro
fessor H. Kimbrough and .1. D, Car
son, the latter the father of the
movement, added, The movement is
a result of a visit, to Remington,
Ind., last summer, by Mr. ('arson,
who was privileged to see the Rem
ington "Kid" band of 10 pieces in
action. Before the chamber of com
merce Mr. Carson related the his
tory of the organization of the Rem
ington band and told of the good
which has resulted to the youngsters
themselves and to the community
through the maintenance of the
band. lie urged that the local cham
ber take immediate steps toward the
organization of a similar band here,
to be composed of boys between 12
and 1 6 years of age.
"The Remington band is the pride
and delight of the community and
has done more toward creating a
right community spirit than any
other agency," he Bald,
The Rev. C N. Curtis, local Scout
master, called attention to the fact
that a Scout band is now in process
of organization and could easily be
developed Into a community juvenile
hand. The chamber voted its en
dorsement and support to the move
ment and developments are expect
ed In the near future.
The discussion of the , proposed
juvenile band brought bad-- to the
old timers memories of the Pullman
Kid band of 1889 and 1890, when
J. H. St. Lawrence, a blind musician
who died in Colfax several years
ago, rounded out n juvenile band
that won recognition throughout the
Northwest and played at the Spokane
fair and other big gatherings. Dr.
If. J. Webb, Pullman's pioneer physi
cian, was instrumental in the organ
ization of the Kid band and assisted

There are three things to which I
should like to call your attention, in I
connection with the Tied Cross,
through the columns of The Herald.
First. An erroneous report has
appeared in various newspapers to
the effect that Miss Gertrude L.
Huntington had resigned as chair
man of the Spokane Chapter of the
American Red Cross. Because of the
serious illness of Miss Huntington's
mother and her manL'old duties, she
felt it necessary to resign from the
board of directors of the social serv
ice bureau of Spokane. Her resigna- j
tion was not accepted, but she was
given a leave of absence. This was
misinterpreted, hence the report.
The social service bureau has no
conection with the Spokane Chapter,
