WALSH SAYS HO DISTRICT GAMES 2' Lack of Men and Means Will Prevent Entering District Conference—Will Develope Team for Future Years— Two Veterans. Lack of means and material will prevent the American Falls High School from entering Into the district schedule, according to Coach Walsh. Many of the heaviest men have either graduated or left for other schools, leaving but few men, and but little raw material. The attitude of the school board', too, toward athletics was also given as a cause for failure to schedule a large number of games. The Board feels that additional ex pense paid out in former years for Coaches was not wholly justified, and decided that they would rather give the money to some local young man to develop the team. Heretofore, it has been customary to pay somthing like |225 per month for a coach, while a capable science and« mathematics teacher could be secured for $160. The difference was held not to be in proportion to the results obtalned (thru the eforts of gupt. Wallis, Opach Walsh was secured at a figure to still effect a saving. Walsh intends to develop in the ma terial that he has a team that may be of use in future years. Zaring, Wheel-1 er, Larooh ftPÇE Gohlson are the only lett^rmeh left, and the raw material at hand, tho good is not heavy and ex perienced enough to meet up with such men as Pocatello, Aberdeen, * TVlackfoot, and other school to this dlstrct Could put forth. On the whole, tills year's work will be but little more than farming for next year's team. •O NEW CLERK AT WHEATGROWERS. be will and will of ployed by the Wheatgrowers Associa tion In their local office and will make his home here.
