TS. ~J\ BLACKTOOT County Seat, Best Couuiy in the State. NEWS OFFICIAL Paper of Bingham County. PRICE—$2.00 PER YEAR BLACKFOOT, BINGHAM COUNTY, IDAHO, FRIDAY, MAY 1», 1»» YOL. XIY, NO. 35 BLACKFOOT HIGH SCHOOL WIHS TAKING A TOTAL OF SEVENTY FIVE AND ONE-HALF POINTS OUT OF POSSIBLE 143. WIN EIGHTEEN OFTHE MEDALS POCATELLO WON SECOND PLACE WITk 17 POINTS, IDAHO FALLS 3RD, DOWNEY 4TH. Blackfoot High School again dem onstrated her superiority over the various high schools of Southeast ern Idaho by capturing first place In the big invitation track and field meet held in Blackfoot Friday of last week. Blackfoot's runner 3 and field men easily distanced their rivals by tak ing a total of 75% points out oi a possible total of 143, winning 11 gold medals, 6 silver medals, 2 bronze medals and tying for a third. The records made, while not state records, will compare favorably with those of the average district meet. Pocatello, Idaho Fallg and Down ey, who came doped to win a large number of points, had to be satisfied with what they could get. Poca tello won second place with 17 points; Idaho Falls third, with 16; Downey fourth, with 15. The Black foot boys showed their mettle as well as their heels to the other teams from the start of pistol in the first event when Hlckenlooper and Packham won first and second places respectively in: the 50-yard dash. Thi 8 fe*t was duplicated by Ander son and Johnson in the high hur dles, while Taylor and Halverson almost duplicated it in the half-mile run, winning first and third respec tively. One of the prettiest races of the day was that of the half-mile in vjrhich Taylor of Blackfoot, ran fifth for the first three-eighths of a mile, and then by a fine exhibition of sprinting stepped out and passed every man and led to the tape by a margin of ten yards, in the fast time of two minutes eleven seconds. This is all the more remarkable in the fact that it is Taylor's first year in track. He will make an excellent man in this event a g well as the 440 in any college that he may attend. The most spectacular finish during the day was in the mile run, when Pierce, of Idaho Falls, barely nosed out Halverson of Blackfoot at the tape, and had not the Idaho Falls runner fallen in front of Halverson at the finish, it would have been a dead race. Anderson of Blackfoot, proved to be the star of the meet by winning four first places, or a total of twen ty points- He easily won the pole vault, high jump and broad jump, but barely won from his team mate Johnson, in the high hurdles. No doubt had Johnson not been afraid of knocking down a third hurdle and thereby being disqualified, he would have won this event from Anderson. It was certainly a beau tiful sight to see Anderson sailing over the bar in tne pole vault at the remarkable height of 11 feet 1% inches, which no doubt he would have bettered had his pole been longer. Blackfoot showed it s well-balanc ed team by the fact that 11 men of 13 entered in the meet, succeeded by winning points and medals in the meet. Considering that this is the second year that Blackfoot has had a track team, it speaks well for them to take a meet in such easy style. It also is a fitting climax to a successful school year, not only in athletics, but in debating, de clamatory, commercial and other school work as well. Blackfoot will lose such point , winners as Packham, Anderson, Tay lor, Stephens, but will retain Hiek enlooper, Johnson, France, Halver son, Chapin, Miller, and Hammond, around whom the next team will be built, thus insuring Blackfoot of a good team in 1923. Possibly the most exciting races during the day were the half mile and mile relays, both of which were •won by Blackfoot, but not without a fight. In the half mile relay, Hlckenlooper, who ran the first lap for Blackfoot, gave his baton to the second man in third place, but Cha pin, who ran the second lap tor Blackfoot, displayed hig real fight (by not only picking up the distance lost by Hlckenlooper, but gave the baton to France his team mate, full five yards in the lead of the next competitor. France not on\y increased this five yards, but Pack ham, ninning last for Blackfoot, did likewise, and came In at the tape a full fifteen yards abreast of Idaho Falls, who won second. In the mile relay, Taylor running' the first lap hr Blackfoot, titrt tt.tn straightaway in the last quarter, whereupon he passed and rapidly drew away from his rivals, and from this time on it was simply a ques tion of the Blackfoot team running against time. They covered the mile in the remarkably fast time of 3 minutes, 56 seconds, averaging 59 seconds for each quarter mile. By winning the two relays, Black foot succeeded in keeping in their possession all the cups offered for the meet, thereby having three ad ditional cups to plaee in their trophy case.

PRO CESS OF ORGANIZATION , K WILL HAYE FIFTY MEMBERS OPENING DINNER WILL BE HELD AT THE ECCLES HOTEL TUESDAY NIGHT. E. F. Wescott, Field Representa tive of The Kiwanis Club Internation al, has been in Blackfoot for the past ten days to ascertain conditions here with the view of the organization of a unit of International Kiwanis, and has expressed himself as being fully satisfied that a strong organization may be effected here. Kiwanis began in Detroit, Michi gan, January 1913, at which place and time the first Kiwanis Club was organized. The potentialities of th^ movement became evident ear»y, and the high purposes of the institution became more and more apparent to the busi ness world, a development began which is almost unparalleled in the history of business inen'B club. Ki wanis is now in more man*seven hun dred and fifty of the most, progressive communities of the United,States and Canada. Kiwanis membership Is "composed of leading business and mofessional men, including one man aiuf his com petitor from each line in a.given city. This dual representation ifiakes for a democracy and integrity within busi ness and professional cirules which are automatically communicated to every phase of social and civic activ ity. Hence, by virtue of the choice leaderships and powerful influence which can thus be concentrated on any community need, Kiwanis Clubs are achieving an international repu tation as "Doers of Good.'/ Kiwanis is non-partisan 'and non sectarian, and no liquorinterests have ever been adinittediX'A lunch eon is held each week, continuing for just one hour, having a\ different chairman each week and a prepared program with a punch. The sixty-five thousand out-stand ing men of the United Statc^and Can ada. seated around tahft^fc singing songs and breaking bretfd, where "good digestion waits on appetite and health on both" and getting a vision of genuine happiness, w!

The Club here will have Ofty care fullyjselecte<^nember^a^it^Charter a number. Mr. Wescott will remain in Blackfoot until the Club Is fully or ganized, so as to take its place with the seven other Clubs of Idaho, and the nine Clubs In Utah, and these States comprise the Kiwanis District of Vtah-Idaho, Oliver O. Haga, of Boise, being the District Governor and Clarence J. Cardon, of Logan, the Lientenant Governor.

The Utah cities where organization has been effected are: Salt Lake City, Provo, Ogden, Logan, Brigham City, Spanish Fork, Spring ville, Nephl and Price. Other cities in both States will be added, so that there will probably be at least twen ty-five cities In organization by the time of the next District Convention, which will be with the Ogden Kiwanis Club as hosts In October, where It Is expected that fully five to seven hun dred Kiwanians of Idaho-Utah will he assembled for two or three days.
