Pocatelio came down Sunday deter mined to wipe out the defeat of the previous week, but had to return to the gate city with the small end of a 9-5 score, thanks to the excellent twirling of Roll Compton and the heavy hitting of Lew Reed and Comp ton, the latter hitting almost as well as he pitched. Pocatello garnered two clean bing les in the first inning which coupled •with a little wildness of Compton, put American Falls two men across, came back and tied the score on two successful boots b the boilermakers. Pocatello went runless then until the eighth inning when a hit and brace of errors gave her three scores. In the meanwhile American Kails had raised her limit to nine which was nearly twice as many as she needed.

Idaho serious to women In tions time means state tion ing zation only ing first Irai a the A city abou! the present size of American Falls is in the best position to benefit from town planning even though it is not blessed with the op portunity to he born again, according to Russell V. Black, expert town plan ner who writes again for the Press as follows: "It has been during only the last ten or twenty years that any very widespread thought lias been given to the planned growth of towns and cities. True that back thru ail the ages of recorded history we find occassional evidence of the exercise of much fore sight in the building of cities. There are also a very few instances where large cities have been built completely from preconceived plans, not until the last quarter century, marked by its tremendous rush of po puiation to the cities that any great heed has been given to their develop But it is to tr-cm. "Even yet attention is largely cen tered about the problems of the large cities. It is these that the pressure of past mistakes and shortsightedness are hurting. The large cities have been forced to spend great sums of money In correction. Their efforts at replan ning have been noised far and near. It is all most people have ever had the opportunity to hear of city planning. It Is natural then that they should as sociate this rather new science with the large cities and never think of its application to the small community. Hard On Small Town. "This Is hard on the samll town be cause as a matter of faet it Is there tliat planning Is most needed and where It comes in time to be of real benefit. There is the same difference between the small and large communi ty as between child and grown man. The character of the former is still un determined. "The small community has been so neglected in the past that someone has said with much justification: "God made the country and man made the city but the Devil made the little country town." "There is no earthly reason why this should continue to be true. No matter if the community Is but a cross roads settlement its children are Just as much worth while as their, cousins in the big city. They have Just as much right to and need for wholesome play and clean as have any phildren anywhere, grown people too have almost as much need for recreation and amusement and as much right to and need of hap and convenient working and living conditions as if they were of a corn munity of a hundred thousand "The more isolated a town or city is the more self-sufficient It must be come. Its people cat, sleep, work and play within its own limits. They get out of life pretly much what their town affords. If there are no places of wholesome amusement, no play fields or parks or street trees, if the streets are mean and ugly and Indi rect, if the places of work are Incon venient and unsanitary, If the »tores scattered and poorly stocked, If W. tion this or that the the eyes tion first a of to of we and the this our and decent surroundings Th< py Earl the Mr. Mr. .Mrs who E.

IMHO II VAN OF RECLAMATION I'ells Federated Miss Ktlielyn Classer Womens Clubs Thut Western Stales Association Was Conception of Idaho Urganlslation. The perpetuation of the work of the Idaho Reclamation Association Is a serious matter at the present time, due to the stringent financial conditions, according to Miss ICthelyn G lasser who ecently spoke to the Federated Club of women of the state at Caldwell. Miss Ulasser said in part: "To earnest students of reclamation In Idaho, one of the most serious ques tions confronting us at this particular time is that of providing ways and means of cuntinuign the work of our state organization, the Idaho Reclama tion Association, whose influence dur ing the two short years of its organi zation has been most far reaching. Not only did the Idaho Reclamation Asso ciation originate the plan of organiz ing the Western States Reclamation Association and furnlHh the funds that first made possible that organization, Irai "in Association haH also supplied a groat number of the soundest Idoas] adopted as the working progium of j the Western States Reclamation As soclation . It so Must Net Be Indifferent. The choice of our Governor, Hon. D. W. Davis, as president of the Western States Reclamation Association, bears evidence of Idaho's recognized posi tion in the vanguard of reclamation movements. Gan we afford to lose this proud position by carelessness or Indifference? The latest news from Washington Is that the western men Interested in Ir rigation have adopted a plan to bring the U. 8. Congress on a trip through the West next fail, so that their own eyes may see the truth about reclama tion and what it means lo the whole country. This plan which was con ceived by Major Fred It.
