VOLUME XXII SPOKANE WINS THE BIG MEET All Present Agree that This Year's Meet Was Best in History of (he State College. The Interscholastic Field meet held here last Saturday was a grand suc cess, from every point of view. It was a financial success and the winners -, ere scattered over a greater terri tory than ever before. More schools won points than in any previous meet and it required the relay race to decide the winner of the meet. •Spokane won it, but she had to fight for every point and the relay race, the last event on the program, would have given the meet to any one of four schools, so closely were the lead ers bunched. It is safe to say that this meet will bring greater benefits to Pullman and the Slate College than any pre vious meet, for many smaller schools, which had never before been able to make a point, took home trophies and the students of those schools will come back next year determined ' to win more points, and many of those who participated in last Satur day's meet will be enrolled as stu dent of Washington State College next fall, or in the near future. The weather was about as Dad as could be expected, a cold rain hav ing fallen early Saturday morning, and this was followed by a cold, hard wind, and occasional showers during . the day. The preliminary events were run off during the forenoon and were /, witnessed by a fair attendance, and everything was In readiness for the afternoon program which began at j'2 o'clock, with one of the largest audiences ever gathered at an Inter- I scholastic field meet here. The com mittee had things well in band and the meet was pulled off in record time. Tekoa probably did more than any other school to surprise the au dience for, although one of the small est schools in the contest, It tied two others for second place and gave Sokane a hard rub for the relay race which, had Tekoa won it, would "have given that school the meet and both the McCroskey and Murray ■ Jims. * , Following" is the schedule of the events, and the lis! of points won by .the various schools: Spokane 26 Ellensburg 19 i Lewiston 19 'Tekoa 19 Waitsburg 13 Garfield 11 Davenport 5 Watervillo 5 .

PULLMAN, WASHINGTON, FRIDAY, MAY 20. 1910 PULLMAN SCHOOLS CLOSE IST SUCCESSFUL YEAR High School Class Graduated. Other Classes Complete Labors. Teachers Employed for Coming Year. This week witnessed the closing of the most successful year in the his tory of Pullman's public schools. The first high school class, which was also ilie largest in the county, has been graduated. Other high and pub lic school classes have been advanced, and the' work closed with entire sat isfaction to patrons, officers and teachers. The week has probably been the most eventful one iii the history of Pullman's schools for many rea sons. Twenty-one young men and young women, have marched side' by side through the various grades— some of t ..in going from the first to the highest—have parted company, leaving friendships and ties that an' almost sacred. Many of these will en ter Washington State College and The Herald hopes that every one of them will not only enter, but com plete the full course and graduate from that great school in the same class. There is something touching and beautiful in the sight presented by a great class like that just turned out by our high school— the first ii has presented to the world —of young people who have been friends, school mates (and many of them sweethearts) from infancy to young manhood and young woman hood. The ties thus formed should never be broken. The high school, like the colleges and universities, should have tin alumni, which would meet at least once each year, and The Herald suggests that the class just graduating set the example by forming an alumni which shall meet with the graduating classes of rail, lit 12, and each succeeding year. The week has been memorable for many fights between classes which, while entirely good tired, were fierce and hotly contested. Saturday night the freshmen flung their pennant from the top of the flagpole on the tower of the high school building, and to prevent it being taken down, had cut the rope. Sunday night other classmen un dertook to take down the pennant and two climbed to the top of the tower, and after an hour's work suc ceeded in tearing down the freshmen pennant. When they started to de scend they found the ladder inside the tower torn down and the bell rope, down which they might have slid, cut. After a scrap of several minutes the adventurers were rescued by classmates, and the freshmen who had tried to prevent them from de scending were driven out of the high school tower. Monday night hostilities were re newed. After the freshmen and the sophomores had each been enter tained at parties the members of the two classes met at the high school building and proceeded to decorate everything with their class colors. TEACHERS ELECTED. The school board has selected all but three of the teachers for the coming year, most of those elected having served during the year just closed. Mrs. M. E. Jenne, who has been principal of the high school for so many years, has resigned and that leaves a vacancy to be filled. There are a number of good teachers under consideration for that posi tion. A teacher of history in the high school remains to be selected and He' principal of the Franklin school his not been chosen although no of ficial action has been taken. The corps of teachers elected to date fol lows: Prof. 11. A. Ellis, superintendent of city schools; high school teachers: C. L. Hicks, mathematics; F. N. Bryant, science; Miss Percy Watson, languages; Miss Lena Kohne, Eng An alliance between the two classes had been formed and they worketl to gether harmoniously. Members of the senior and junior classes, rein forced by members of the eight grade class, undertook to prevent the soph omores and freshmen from putting up their colors and a fight, which eclipsed anything of its kind in Pull man. followed. About 20 of the. op posing forces were captured after a fight lasting nearly two hours, and the' captives were ■•bog tied" by the allied forces, and placed in a row on the sidewalk. A few of the opposing forces had gone into the bell tower to take down tin. pennants which swung from the flag pole, but were captured and taken Into the assem bly room, where they were tied and placed mi the teachers platform. Those on the sidewalk were carried in ami placed before them. Then the victors sang, danced and enjoyed themselves until 4:30, when the cap tives were released upon their pro mise to leave the school grounds, which promise they kepi religiously. A number of high school and college girls, who had formerly attended (be high school, remained up nearly oil night to witness the fight. Many par ticipants had their clothing torn al most completely from, them and oth ers were scratched and bruised, but none were hurt seriously, although some of those who were tied, com plained afterward that the ropes were so tight about their wrists and ankles that their hands and feet were so numb they could scarcely walk after being released. One boy was unable to use bis hands at the breakfast table the next morning. The Senior class day exercises, held in the Assembly ball Tues day night, attracted a very large and enthusiastic audience, all the seats and a number of chairs being occupi ed. The program, which Included the class calendar, essays, piano and vocal solos and a selection by the girls' quartet and the glee club, was recalled for nearly every number. The class song quartet contest, in which the freshmen, sophomores and juniors took part was won by the freshman glee class. Each of the three classes bad prepared a class song and judges were selected to inline which was the best. The room was very beautifully de corated with the senior colors, black find gold, and a large number of pennants, representing the different high schools of the country. The graduation exercises We're held in the Auditorium, Thursday night and were attended by a large audience. The class of 21 occupied seats on the stage and the address was delivered by Professor W. (J. Beach, of the State College.
