The Idaho Academy base ball
team came up last Saturday after
moon to pay the Sagebrush nine and'
went home wiser than when they
came. The score was 6 to 5 in favor
ol the home team. Until the fifth in
ning the Pocatello boys did not suc
ceed in getting a single man over the
plate. After that they began to play
the umpire and did fairly well, as the
local boys found it difficult to play
against a shifting foul line where
balls were fair for the Academy and
"fouU'' in the same place for the lo
cals. With a little more team work
our boys will be ready to take on
several games with surrounding clubs
The boys do not like it very well be
cause Superintendent Estep has tor
bidden Sunday games on the reser
vation, but they will play such games
with other clubs away from the res
er vation. j

down to an acreage that they cam
handle successfully while gaining the
necessary experience to make It a
greater success next year. It is ex
pected that next year the acreage will
be three or fou times as large as this
and in time that beet culture will be
the leading industry on irrigable lands
of the resevation. Superintendent Es
tep says that beet growing is a favor
ite work with the Indian farmers on
other reservations and he sees no
reason why it should not prove to ibe
the same with this reservation and he
is going to try very hard to make it a
