to Be the Same as Last
Year.
Meridian, April 22 —As a result of
a recent conference between represent
atives of the rural high school and the
grade school, the status of the rural
hlgh school will remain unchanged. So
greatly has the rural high school added
to the reputation of the town ns an ed
lational center that its citizenship is
averse to Its being changed to the pro
portions of an ordinary town high
school. The business men are also Im
pressed that such a change would
prove detrimental to the best Interest
of the town. The plan of the opera
tion of the two schools with reference
to the employment of the faculty of
each will be practically the same as
that of last year. However, It has been
decided to hold board conferences reg

ing of the two boards will occur within
a few days.

VICTORIOUS OVER
COLLEGE PLAYERS
HIGH SCHOOL IS
, .v_
Whitman Defeated by the
Boise High by 4 to 3 Score :
in Fuat Plnw A era in
m x asi wame-'iriay Again
Today.
j
The fast Boise baseball high school
baseball team came from behind yes
terday afternoon at the school park and
won a 4 to 3 game from the Whitman
college In as surprising a baseball mat
inee as has been seen In this city for
some time. Over-confidence humiliat
ed the diamond pride of the visiting
collegians. A determination to deliver
the best kind of baseball they knew
how saved the high school. Both teams
meet again this afternoon to play a se
cond match game. It will be called
promptly at 3; SO o'clock.
The game wns placed In cold storage
for the local team In the seventh inning
when three runs were sent over the
pan. Up to that time Whitman had led
1 to 0. The college boys attempted to
pull out In the latter end of the game
hut it was already on brine. They
tied the score In the eighth but were
nosed out of the running In the latter
part of that frame when Coach Mitch
ell's tribe grabbed another run, and
the winning one.
Eddy showed better pitching work
than De Grief, who opposed him on the
mound. The local twirler whiffed eight
of the Walla Wallons to seven for De
Grief, and he only allowed tout errors
to get into the mercy column.
Clerin, third baseman for the Whit
man team cracked a double In the
fourth Inning and scored the first run.
Up to the seventh the Boise high re
mained Inactive so far as runs were
concerned. In that inning an error
started the homers to racing the course.
Swanson rapped out a grounder that
Lieuallen buttered.
Kerwln doubled
and Swanson counted. Eddy and Wil
liams both hit, Kerwln counting on
William's single. Eddy also got across
with a credit and the local team had a
one-run lead. Whitman scored one
more in the seventh and tied the score
In the eighth but in the same frame
Boise secured the fourth and winning
run, made possible by hits by Snapp
and Eddy and a sacrifice by Meacham.
The score:
Boise.

PAYETTE HIGH WINS
»HEMER TEAM
(Capital News Special Service.)
Payette, April 2S.—In one of the
neatest exhibitions of baseball ever
seen In the City, the Payette high school
non from the Baker City, Ore., high
school on the home diamond Thursday
U f tcrn oon m the twelfth inning.
the last halt of the twelfth Inning,
" ith Payett ® at bat and one d °"n.
shufer got a clean two-bagger and
Goodwin followed with another. Shafer
scored, thus erasing the tie score of
2 to 2, which had stood from the ninth
Inning. The game was fairly free from
errors and fast, snappy playing waa
exhibited on both sides. It was, how
ever, a pitchers' battle from start to
finish in which Goodwin of Payette
showed his superiority.
During the entire game no man
walked on either side. Goodwin, for
Payette and Fosherry, for Baker,
pitched the whole contest and both
pitchers seemed to be getting stronger
with the progress of each inning.
Phetteplace of Payette pulled off
some spectacular base stealing, and
scored two of the three runs made.
None of the Baker team was able to
steal on Forbes and twice during the
early part of the game his true arm
spoiled the attempt of a Baker man
to steal second. The work of Captain
Crump at first and Shafer at short
was most pleasing to the crowd. Short
made several good catches in center
field. G. B. Appleman of PRyette um
pired. Batteries: Baker, Fosherry and
Ellois; Payette, Goodwin and Forbes.
