to Idaho for the campaign so long as
his presence here is required for work
of congress.
He said today that the house was

um, not more than three to spare and
it would be a sad commentary on the
patriotism ot the house members if
they ran away to play politics while
public business involving the task of

Representative Smith's course has
been generally commended by his col

The Council of National Defense
authorizes the following: The Conn- to
cil of National Defense has hereto
fore emphasized the necessity of re- at
striding Christmas buying during
the coming fall for certain specific
reasons which it has stated. These
reasons are in brief the necessity for
saving labor and material in the man
ufacture and sale of Christmas gifts
and of saving the transportation and
delivery facilities necessarily involv
ed in th learge volume of Christmas;
After conferences with représenta- j
tives of the leading industries and ;
retail interests concerned, it is found ]
that the manufacture of goods for ! ou
the coming holiday season has been •
substantially completed, that the
transportation of the goods to the
point of sale is also largely done and
that much of the material used for
Christmas purchases, especially in
the manufacture of toys, is the waste
material derived from prior process
es of manufacture.
The retail interests represented at
the conference have agreed not to in
crease their work force by reason of
the holiday business over the aver
age force employed by them through
out the year and not to increases the
normal working hours of their forcé |
during the Christmas season.

pleasant hour.
! Last Wednesday at noon the Fresh
men were presented with a present
from the Sophomores to show that
there wasn't "any hard feelings'' be
tween the two. It consisted of a
nursing bottle filled with milk and a
nipple attached to it. We hope every
one received an equal share and that
it was enjoyed.
The oirginal Sophomore challenge,
issued to the Freshmen as their ans
wer, was destroyed but another has
been produced to show the public the
Sophomore's opinion of it.
• Class of 1922—Take Notice.
We, the class of 1921, hereby ac
cept the challenge issued by the class
of 1922 composed of green, insignifi
cant Freshies. We certainly do ap
preciate the compliments bestowed
upon our class and they may be even
more fully apreciated when we think
of their source as babies and are not
responsible for what they do. As this
tug-of-war is to be a fair conflict, the
class, of 1922 will be called upon to
choose five of their "bright" members
to uphold their undefeated record.
When the class of 1922 stated in
their challenge that, if they won the
contest, they would not take any part
in the initiation by the Sophomores,
they plainly admitted that like all in
fants they are afraid to take their
medicine. Therefore, we refuse their
"peace offer" on those terms.
The contest took place at the time
decided upon and we are sorry to say
was won by the Freshmen, although
both sides used their utmost strength.
During the past five weeks the ag-
i ricultural class of the high school
has made a study of plant propoga-
tion by seed, spores and bud growth.
The grafting and budding have been
done by the pupils, and many good

I have been nominated as candi
date for District Judge of the Fifth
Judicial District of the State of Idaho,
comprising the counties of Bannock,
Bear Lake, Oneida, Franklin and
Power. I have served as Judge in this
District for the past four years. At the
time I began my duties the dockets of
the Court in the various counties
were so crowded and congested, many
of the cases having been on the dock
et for a long time, that it was imposs
ible for two men to do this work. I
claim that for three years of my ser
vice I did the work of two men, and
did twice as much work as any man
should do. By starting Court early In
the morning and holdng it'until late
at night I not only relieved the con
gestion to an appreciable degree, but
by intelligent management of the
Court affairs I saved the people of
this District many thousands of dol
lars, and I would ask that yon inquire
of the county officials of your county,
who are familiar with the court work,
as to whether my statement is true or
not. The population of this Judicial
District is more than one hundred
thousand, and there are more than
twenty thousand voters scattered over
a wide area, so that if I had nothing
else to do it would be impossible for
me to meet but a small percentage of
the voters between now and election
day. Any person acting as Judge of
such a large District for four years
necessarily creates enemies, as certain
litigants, both civil and criminal, are
dissatisfied with the rulings of the
Judge, and many of these look for
ward to election day as the time that
they can get even for the grievances,
but I trust that the voter will remem
ber that when I passed on a case I
heard both sides of it, but you will
only be told one..
I shall rely upon my four years'
record as Judge of this District to se
cure my re-election.
