Standard Calcutta grain bags at
$5.75 per hundred Is the price the
members of the Farmers' Union, who
pooled their purchases, will pay for
the sacks In which they will mar
ket the wheat crop of 1910.
This Is the lowest price of which
there is any record, and Is cutting
the price square in two from what
was paid five years ago.
The Farmers' Union appointed a
committee consisting of W. C. Jar
ron, Carson Taylor, J. M. Atkins,
J. S. Klemgard and J. If. Weeks, to
receive bids on the sacks needed by
the Union members, each farmer fil
ing an order for the number of
sacks he would require, the total
of wheat and oat sacks amounting
to from 150,000 to 200,000. Six bids
were received and considered Wed
nesday, the contract being awarded
to the Interior Warehouse Company
at $5.75 for wheat sacks and $6.66
for oat sacks, the best Calcutta bags
to be supplied, the price being f.o.b.
the farmers wagon.
The price paid last year for wheat
sacks was $6, which was low up to
that time. The sacks ordered on
this contract will fill two cars.

The State College started off its
season of intercollegiate baseball
last Saturday by dropping the first
game of the series to the team from
tin- University of Oregon, the score
of t> to l telling the tale of bunched
hits on the part of the webfooters,
and some expensive errors by the
local team. Henkle, the Oregon
pitcher, did some good work, allow
ing only six scattering hits for the
State College men. Foran pitched
good ball for W. S. C, but was given
poor support at crtitcal times, a shut
out being saved only by timely hits
by Holland and Graham.
Monday afternoon the second
game of the present series with Ore
gon, told a different story, the final
score of a game replete with bril
liant playing and errors by both
teams being 7 to 5 in favor of the
crimson and gray.
The run-getting commenced with
the first inning, Oregon putting three
men across the plate in her half, and
W. S. C. following with four when
she came to bat, the four all gallop
ing home on Smith's home run
strike, the bases having been filled
by the Oregon pitcher falling to find
the plate, and so walking the first
three men up, The game was won in
the last half of the eighth, when
Patton's two-bagger scored Foran
and Holland.

scholastic track and field meet to be
given in Pullman, May 1 5, under the |
auspices of the stale college the vis
itors will be given an opportunity to
see the best track athletes of the
college participate in exhibition con
Professor Charles Timblin, chair
man of the committee from the
faculty which has in charge all ar
rangements for the InterscholasUc
meet, said that requests had been
received from many of the high
schools for events from the star ath
letes of the college and thai the re- j
quest would he complied with. "Man)
of the high school people want an
opportunity to Bee Jack Nelson, our!
great sprinter; Clarence Cooll, cap
tain of the team and the northwest
champion In the mile and two-mile
runs, and oilers whose names have
been made well known, perform,"
said Professor Timblln, "and we are
going to give the visitors an oppor
tunity on May 15."
Tin? general committee was divid
ed into sub-committees for the ex
pedition of the numerous details of
the big meet. The sub-committees
were announced by Professor Tim
blin as follows: W. E. Ralston and
M. K. Snyder, finances and medals;
J. F. Bohler and M. K. Alois, field
work, schedule of events and pro
gram; Professor F. A. Thompson,
bousing of guests; Dr. A. A. Cleve
land, dining facilities; Professor
Timblin, correalondence. Professor
Timblin acts as the personal agent
between the faculty committee and
the high schools. Already he has sent
out five circular letters to the vari
ous high schools of the inland Em
pire, and ibis week be sent, out the
call for the summisslon of the eligi
bility lists. These must be in the
hands of the committee by April 25,
"I find that the interest evidenced
by the high schools is unusually good
this year," Bays Professor Timblin.
"About 28 high schools of the in
land Empire will participate and
the committee anticipates an Inter
scholastic this year that will be a
hummer. The Interest in the Spokane
high schools is very good this year,
as in Lewiston, Ellensburg, North
Yakima and Pendleton.
"The smaller high schools have for
the most part determined on the
adoption of a new policy this year.
Instead of entering a large number
of men in the hope of winning points
at random in any event, most of the
smaller schools are going to special
ize, devoting their efforts to certain
particular events in which they are
especially strong. In this way they
hope to compete with the larger
schools to better advantage. This will
make the larger institutions go fas
ter than they have heretofore, as
they will he pitted against the
strongest in each event from all the
other schools of lesser size."
