The preliminary declamatory con test between the Pocatello Academy, the Albion Norma! and the Twin Falls high school scheduled for Friday even ing, was postponed until Saturday. This postponment was very disagree able to the local school which had made all preparation for the contest and was anxious to carry out the pro gram as advertised. The difficulty lay in the selection of judges. H was the duty of the executive com mittee of the league in which the con test was held, to furnish the judges for the evening. When it was learned that the committee had failed to do this an effort was made to secure men from Buhl and other out-of-town places. This being impossible the high school proposed selecting strang ers registered at the hotels, or even allowing the two coaches of the visi tors and a local man to act as judges rather than call the contest off at the last minute, thereby disappointing the pupils who had kindly consented to furnish the music for the evening, some of whom came in from the coun try, and the many people who came out Friday evening. The visitors could not be prevailed upon to accept any one, so the contest was postponed. Saturday evening a small but en thusiastic and attentive crowd was out. • • Miss Turner of Twin Falls, gave the dramatic selection, "The Fight With the Aurochs," and despite the fact that she was first on the program and so had the "ice to break," Miss Turner presented her part well. Miss Wof fington of Pocatello, followed with "A Dream of the World's Awakening." Miss Woffington's work showed good preparation and ability. Her interpre tation was excellent. Her manner was pleasing and she caught the crowd and the judges as well, as she was given first place in the drama tic. Miss Ackerly of Albion, closed the dramatic with "India." Her pre sentation was above criticism. Mr. Mahoney of Albion opened the oratorical. His selection was "An Appeal for Cuba." Mr. Mahoney had his oration well in band and entered into the feeling of the selection. All three judges awarded him first place in this class, although he had a close second in Ernest Berry. Ernest gave as his selection, "The Old South and the New," and he handled it in a very artistic manner. Mr. Masero of Poca tello, followed with "Oratory," which was well delivered. Mr. Castellini of Pocatello opened the comic in "Han's Trip to New York." Coming at the close of the two heavier classes this very comical reci tation was most welcome and Mr. Cas tellini's able presentation was thereby enjoyed by all. and gave him first place. In rendering "Bud's Fairy Tale," Miss Pratt of Albion, showed much ability. Vera Cole closed the contest with "Preparing for the Din ner Party," from the "Ruggles Fam ily." Vera was given first place by one judge and second by the other two. She tied the winner in sum of ranks and was first in total per cent. Although she did not win, the local school is proud of Vera as Its repre sentative. The music for the evening was furn ished by Grace Barger, Ollie Van Met er, Ethel Davies and Willie Coburn. These popular student musicians lived up to their reputation of always furn ishing something good, and their se lections were much enjoyed. a It A Stunning Store. A real holiday appearance has been taken on the week by the Booth Dry Goods Co. store, where they have their big double store room trimmed with autumn leaves and holly trailing over a trellas which overhangs the balcony and ledges, and the interior trimmings of cotton represent glisten ing ice cycles and the whole store is an artistic profusion of the best and most valuable gifts for old and young.

Manager Banta Is planning on making the red tag sale an event to be looked forward to by the whole tract and he certainly Is ac complishing his purpose.
