RIVERS BILL LAW
Appropriation for Projects Al
ready Begun and Work
Starts Here Soon.
An Associated Press dispatch from
Washington today says:
"President Wilson today signed the
rivers and harbors bill appropriating
$20,000,000 to be expended at the direc
tion of the war department for projects
It was announced at the United
States engineer's office here this aft
ernoon, that as soon as official infor
mation comes from the war department
as to the allotment for the improve
ment of the upper Mississippi, the work
When this Information will come is
-not definitely known, but now, since
the president has signed the bill mak
ing It a law, it is anticipated that the
'local government office will be advised
shortly as to the amount -apportioned
Major G. II. Hoffman, engineer in
chief, has had his estimates as to the
proposed work in the hands of the war
department for some time It is
thought that the local office will re
reive le.-s than the u.svial amount,
which has been Jl.500,000.
SENIOR GYM SCHEDULE IS
CHANGED AT THE Y. M. C. A.
A change In the schedule of senior
classes at the Y. M. ('.. A. has been
made. It was planned to divide the
senior class and ue an apparatus test
in making the division, but that has
seemed unwise, so the senior class
will meet as it did last year, Monday
and Thursday at 8:15. Another class
will be organized to meet on Tuesday
and Friday at 8:15 so those unable to
be there Monday and Thursday may
meet with this class. The test has
been abolished. Any member may en
roll in either or both of these classes
This new change in schedule w-ill take
effect at once and regular classes
start Monday of next week.
BY SCHOOL PUPILS

(Special to The Argus.)
Orion. Oct. 2. Wilbert Swansoa,
while pouring babbit metal into a box

Tomorrow at 3 o'clock sharp the
high school eleven will line up against
the fast Aledo team at the Island City
park. The las.t time the crimson and
gold warriors were pitted against the
Aledo eleven It was a 6 to 0 victory tor
the down state team. That was In
1912, and the members of the Rock Is
land squad are confident of turning the
tables tomorrow. Although a small
town. Aledo has always a fast team
and a hard battle is expected by Coach
H. N. Roe.
The spirit of the team and the
students or the high school is great
and there Is no thought of defeat. With
tho eleven showing such form as It has
tiia last week in practice everyone is
confident of copping this game. The
Aledo game will be the first one with
a rival school and a large crowd is ex
pected by Manager A. G. Hill. A spe
cial car was chartered by the Athletic
association of the school from the Tri
Clty Railway company, which will con
vey the teams and the school bat.l
to the park. This car will leave the
high school at 2:15 and those who
wish to ride direct to the game may
ride on this car for the usual fare. The
fares taken in on this car go to the
Athletic association of the school.
Opener for Band.
The band, a new feature of the high
school under John W. Casto as its lead
er, will play for the first time to the
public. The band will play as the spe
cial car proceeds through the down
town district. If the fans show the
proper spirit by a large atendance
Manager A. G. Hill of the football team
states that the unfilled dates on the
Islander's schedule will be filled and
played at home. Those who wish to
root should get close to Dwight La
Grange, yellmaster for the school, and
make some noise.
Everyone who has seen the high
school eleven in action will concede
that it is the best team that the local
school has put on the gridiron for a
number of years. The line, which 6how
ed up a trifle weak against the ter
rific smashing given it by the alum
has braced up wonderfully. All the
men who participated in the alumni
game will play with the exception of
Dooley and Gaetjer, who are not up In
their studies. The places of these two
stars have been filled by capable men
in Ackley and Looby, who have been
worked at those positions all week.
