THE HONOR roll of
Many Pupils Ranked High in Their
Studies as Weil as in __.
port meat
The following pupils have been
placed on the honor roll for the first
semester, as their average scholar
ship is 90 or above, and their de
portment has not fallen below 90:
.Mabel Roberts, Harold Henshaw,
Leila Lavin; Helen Hungate. Mildred
Klossner. Th.-a Goserud, Eva Wood
ruff, Erich Klossner, Eric Egge, Ruth
Juarek, Nellie Emerson. Edith
Rhodes, Flossie Hays. Will Williams.
Elizabeth Weeks, Loyd Weeks, Glenn

Harnelius. George Butler, Lelah Bur
gess, Harvey Copenhaver, Emal Ja
cobson, Ethel Dana. Mark Morgan,
Leo Klossner, Vivian Strong, Laura
Clark, Ray Baymiller, Jarvis Fulmer
and Edward Anderson.
The examinations for removing
conditions received in the semester
will be held Thursday and Friday.
The three highest grades were:
Edward Anderson, 94.5; Leo Kloss
ner. 94.2, and Mabel Roberts, 94.
This shows that the students are
doing good work in their studies as
we'll as in athletics, debating and
stock judging.
The high school basket ball team
was defeated by the Farmington
team Saturday night at that place
by a score of 36 to 18. The Pull
man hoys were at a disadvantage, as
they had to play in a small room
with a low ceiling and a very slip
pery floor. It is thought that when
Farmington comes here later in the
season It will be an altogether dif
ferent story. The high school team
will play Colfax Friday night in the
college gymnasium at 8 o'clock. A
good game is expected, as Colfax has
one of the best teams in the county,
and the local team is working hard.
The city band will furnish music.
The students are- taking an active
interest in the coming election to
decide whether or not bonds shall be
Issued for the erection of a new high
school building. All favor it, as they
are well aware of the defects of the
present one and the inconveniences
ii causes them. They are also con
scious of tin- fact that much better
work could be done in a better build
ing, especially in the science studies.
The annual meeting of the stock
holders of the Pacific Farmers
Union Co. was held Monday after
noon at the Chamber of Commerce
building. The following board of
directors was elected for the ensuing
year: George Sievers of Moscow,
Idaho, R. C. McCroskey of Garfield,
J, M. Reid, J. M. Haines and J. N.
Emerson of Pullman. The directors
selected the following officers:
President, J. M. Haines; vice presi
dent, George Sievers; secretary, J.
M. Reid; treasurer, R. C. McCroskey.
The only change made in the old
staff of officials was the selection of
J. N. Emerson as a director in place
of P. W. Cox of Colfax. This was
done because it was thought best to
have a majority of the directors
living in or near Pullman, so that
they could meet on short notice
whenever necessary.

Pullman Answers Attack on Wash
ington State College
Resolved, That the Pullman Chamber of Commerce does
hereby express its gratitude to the House of Representatives
for defeating the attempted assault on the best interests of the
State College of Washington and extends its since congratu
lations to President E. A. Bryan on this splendid vindication
of his administration by the representatives of the people of all
parts of the state.Resolution adopted by the Pullman Cham
ber of Commerce February 4, 1913.
Whereas, Reports have appeared in the public press of the
state tending to give the impression that a large per cent of
the citizens of Pullman are back of, and in symapthy with, the
recent attack on the administration of E. A. Bryan, as presi
dent of the State College of Washington, and the demand that
he resign the presidency of said institution; and,
Whereas, Said attack was formulated at a secret meeting
in which but five or six persons participated; and,
Whereas, The action of said meeting does not represent the
sentiment of even a small minority of the community; and,
Whereas, The Impression that any considerable number of
the residents of Pullman, the home of the State College of
Washington, are in sympathy with this movement might tend to
weaken the confidence of the people of other portions of the
state in the management of the institution, and thereby impair
its present usefulness and future development; therefore, be it
Resolved, That we, the citizens of Pullman, in OPEN
MEETING assembled, do hereby denounce the attack upon the
administration of the college as unworthy, unjust, and unwar
ranted; and, be it further
Resolved, That we hereby express our entire confidence in
the ability, wisdom, and fairness of President Bryan, and our
belief from years of personal observation that the college is
now accomplishing better work than ever before in its history;
that the standard of scholarship is higher; that the attendance
of collegiate students is larger; that practically without excep
tion the faculty and alumni are in harmony and sympathy with
its policy; and, be it further
Resolved, That we affix our signatures to these resolutions
as an evidence of good faith and honest belief that the above
declaration represents the real sentiment of the vast majority
of the citiens of Pullman.—Resolutions adopted and signed by
over 200 representative citizens of Pullman at an open meeting
held January 31.
Proposal of Directors to Bond District for
$25,000 will be Ratified or Rejected
Tomorrow Afternoon
Tomorrow afternon the voters of
Pullman will have a chance to ratify
or reject the proposal of the district
directors to issue bonds to the amount
of $:'5,000 for the I uildin^ ot a new
high school. The idea adopted is to
locate the building about 40 feet
north of and in line with the present
high school. It will face east. The
plans which have been discussed and
outlined by the directors in consulta
tion with Superintendent Ellis and
Architect Swain call for a plain, sub
stantial, two-story brick structure
84x70 feet with a basement under the
whole building. The entrance will
be in the middle of an eight foot pro
jection, 44 feet wide, on the front of
the building. In the projection on
each side of the entrance will be lo
cated the stairways. Leading from
the entrance is a corridor 14 feet
wide and 4 6 feet long. At one end
of this corridor is located a commo
dious lavatory and coat room for the
girls, ad at the other similar accom
modations for the boys. The assem
bly room occupies the southwest cor
ner of the first floor and is 60x53
feet, with a 15-foot celling. It is
splendidly lighted and will accommo-
date 250 pupils. It has a stage lis
21 feet. The space north of the as
sembly room is divided into two reci
tation rooms, each 21x26 feet.
There are two stairways leading to
the second floor, each six feet wide.
On this floor are located two recita
tion rooms, each 34x26 feet, a domes
tic science room 27x33 feet and a
mathematics room 25x33 feet. Along
the front of this floor are located a
library 14x20 feet, a rest room 12x14
feet, a superintendent's office 14x20
feet, and a store room I.'{x 14 feet.
Along the north side of the base
ment is a gymnasium 60 feet long, 46
feet wide and 18 feet high. Across
one end is a balcony eight feet wide
for the use of spectators. In the
northeast corner is a room 17x18
which will be utilized for shower
baths and lockers. The rest of the
basement is occupied by a manual
training room ;J6x2:! and a labora
tory ;!6x2:;. It Is planned to heat
the building by steam from the boiler
in the old building.
Architect Swain has prepared a
sketch of the floor plans of the pro
posed building which are now on
exhibition at the office of John
Squires and can be- inspected by any
one interested. Mr. Swain is confi
dent that the building as planned can
be completed at a cost of not to ex
ceed $22,000. Superintendent Ellis
la delighted with the plans and says
he Is confident that such a building
will meet all the needs of the school
for a number of years. '
The polls will be open at the high
school building from 1 to 6 o'clock
p. m. tomorrow and a heavy vote
should be cast.

Dr. Hall has had considerable ex

opticon in connection with his lec
tures. Remember the time: Sunday

Chamber of Commerce
The most Important business
transacted ' at the meeting of the
meeting of the Chamber of Com
merce Tuesday evening was the pre
sentation and adoption of the resolu
tion relative to the attacks on the
W. S. C. which is published in an
other column of this issue. A num
ber of members were opposed to the
bringing up of this matter in any
form, fearing that it would have a
tendency to disrupt the organization,
but it was finally agreed that the
resolution should be presented by J.
N. Emerson and submitted to a se
cret ballot without discussion, except
for 10-minute addresses by F. M. Sla
gle and Wm. Goodyear. This program
was carried out and the resolution
was adopted by a vote of 18 to 12.
The result probably indicated the
sentiment of those present regarding
the advisability of bringing the mat
ter up, rather than on the merits of
tho resolution.

Rack From Olympia
Pre Bidet Bryan returned Wednes
day evening from Olympia, where on
Monday he appeared before the house
and senate committees on appropria
tions and explained the needs of th*
college. He Bays that the members
of both committees expressed them
selves as satisfied that the appropria

would be granted and their gratifica
tion that the estimates had been kept

its annual concert at the college audi
torium next Thursday evening, Feb

more extended tour than usual.
The program which the boys are
giving is varied and of high class,
including choruses, vocal and Instru
mental solos and selections by the
The second part of the en
tertainment is sure to make a big hit.
It is in the form of a comic operetta,
"The Pennant," which has a lively
and interesting plot with an elope
ment scene and many amusing situ
ations, in addition to some very
catchy music. Shields, Dunn and
Gaddis take the female parts and are
a trio of beauties, whose personal
charms are equal to anything in the
show girl line.
Pullman has always given the glee
club a royal reception and a crowded
house is sure to greet the boys next

A Rousing Meeting
The citizens of Pullman gave a
convincing demonstration of their
loyalty to the W. S. C. and their con
fidence in President Bryan by as
sembling over 200 strong in the
Christian church last Friday evening
and unanimously adopting the reso
lutions, published in another column,
denouncing the attack on the admin
istration of the college. D. F. Staley
presided and stated the object of the
meeting. J. W. Mathews gave an
eloquent and forceful eulogy of the
work and character of President

and their adoption was greeted by
nine roof-raising "rahs," led by Ed
die Pape, the king of the college root
ers. The meeting closed with an Im
pressive benediction pronounced by
Dr. Hays.
An early spring was the predic
tion of the groundhog when he came
out last Sunday, took a good look
around and failed to get a glimpse
of his shadow. This is the first time
for several years that the sun has
not been shining some time during
Groundhog Day enough to scare the
little rodent back into his hole.
Here's hoping that his judgment Ib
as good this year as It has been In
the past.
