Pendleton's Great Show Will Be
Reproduced Here in 5000 Feet of
,v * Film Next Tuesday
With '"'customary enterprise, Man
iger Miller of the Star theater has
'secured"the splendid moving pictures
of last year's Round-up at Pendleton.
He was obliged to pay 1 tit) for the
privilege of using this 5000-foot film,
but believes that the people of Pull
man are entitled to the very best in
the moving picture line, and will
give them a chance to see these re
markable pictures next Tuesday,
February 18, at an afternoon mat
inee beginning at 2:00, and the even
ing shows, beginning at 6:30.
Speaking of the showing of these pic
tures at the Auditorium theater in
Spokane, the Spokesman-Review
. "The films are excellent. Excep
tionally clear, they have been taken
from good viewpoints and show the
Round-up features at their best.
* "The Pendleton Round-up is one
of the most Interesting events in the
western country annually and is at
tended by thousands of spectators.
The events are participated in by
cowboys and Indians from all parts
of the cattle country and feats of
horsemanship and ranch stunts are
.exhibited hy the* contestants for
championship honors. These feats
are well depicted in the pictures.
"The 'bucking' contest is one that
would stir the blood of any man or
woman and several thousand feet of
film are devoted to the reproduction
of this novel contest. The falls of
the riders, the stick-to-itiveness of
others thrill and amaze the onlook
ers, especially the tenderfoot.
j "Other features which arouse great
interest and elicited much applause
last evening were the wild horse
races, the Roman races, the stage
coach races and the exciting 'bull
dogging.' For the benefit of the un
initiated the bulldogging' contest
calls for an exhibition of nerve,
strength and horsemanship. A horse

from his horse to catch the steer's
horns. With a sudden jerk-he swings
his body between the animal's horns
and throvs the steer to the ground.
Then grasping the upper part of the
animal's nostrils between his teeth
he holds on like a bulldog, both
hands in the air, until the judges are

Work on the New Agricultural and Mechanic
Arts Buildings will Begin this Spring
President Bryan has brought from
, Olympia the welcome news that the
I appropriation for the State College
; will be allowed In full by the legis
lature*. This appropriation provides
! funds sufficient for the construction
of tho proposed Agricultural and
Mechanic Arts buildings.
These buildings will cost $150,000
leach, and will be among the finest
'college buildings in the country.
Both will he of fireproof construc
tion, built of brick, with steel and
concrete floors, and partitions of
brick or iron studding and steel lath.
Both buildings will be flat-topped,
and constructed along the most ap
proved lines of modern architecture.
The magnitude and importance of
; tho new buildings is shown by the
i fact that three years will be required
j for their construction. One wing
■ will be completed at a time, ami
: will be occupied as soon as finished.
The designs for the new buildings
• will be drawn by Professor Weaver
and his corps of assistants. Sketches
have already been submitted by the
t various departments, showing the
' room and arrangement they desire,
and the designs are being made now,
so thai work may commence at the
earliest possible date in the spring.
The Mechanic Arts Building will
stand in front of the present shops,
• and will face* to the west and north.
The departments of Mechanical En
gineering, Electrical Engineering,
physics, and architecture will be
housed in this structure.
The Agricultural Building will be
erected east of College Hall, upon
the site now occupied by the College
[ Hospital. The agricultural and
horticultural departments, and the
• extension work will occupy this
i building.
The importance of these buildings
to Washington State College can not
be overestimated. All our depart
ments have* been handicapped for
want of room. The engineering de
partments have been lacking in many
facilities which would improve the
high-grade work which they are now
doing. The removal of the physics
laboratories into more intimate con
tact with the engineering depart
ments should increase the practical
value of the work now being done.
New High School will be Erected
I Proposed Bond Issue Was Carried
Last Saturday by a Vote of
SUM) to (i:{
Considerable interest was mani
fested in the special election held
last Saturday to determine whether
or not a bond issue of $25,000
should be made for the erection of
a new high school building. The
sentiment proved to be overwhelm
ingly in favor of the plan, 220 votes
being cast in favor of the bonds to
G3 against.
The school directors have instruct
ed the county treasurer to at once
advertise for bids on the bonds, and
as soon as they are sold will call
for bids for the construction of the
building. Architect Swain is rush
ing work on the preparation of the
plans and specifications and says
that while the exterior of the build
Ing will be severely plain, it will pre
sent a substantial and rather im
posing appearance. He will have a
sketch of the front elevation of the
building ready for Inspection in a
few days. . ,
Rev. W. E. Armfleld, pastor of
the Lidgerwood If, E. church of Spo
kane, spent a few hours with his sis
ter, Mrs. M. E. Vaughan, on Star
Route street, Saturday, while en
route to attend the district confer
ence at Colfax. •

Mrs. M. S. Jamar, Miss Ella Ruply,

Perry went to Spokane Wednesday to
attend the performance of Ben Hur.
and leave much-needed space In the
Administration Building for the use
of other departments. The devotion
of the present engineering buildings
to workshop purposes only, and the
provision of new, roomy quarters for
offices, class rooms and laboratories,
should make our engineering depart
ment take a higher place among the
other western colleges.
Science Hall has long provided in
sufficient room for the needs of the
departments housed within it. The
expansion of the college work in ag
riculture and horticulture, and the
phenomenal growth of the college ex
tension work, has made the necessity
for new quarters a crying one. The
extension work alone would almost
justify the erection of a new building.
The work of farmers' institutes, de
monstration boats and trains, and
winter schools, is increasing to a
marvelous extent. The winter schools
alone now number seven. They are
in session at Pullman, Puyallup, Lyn
den, Vancouver, Watervllle, and
other points.
The erection of these now build
ings, with the increased facilities
for work which they offer, should
mean the beginning of a new epoch
for W. S. C. With every depart
ment housed in commodious quart
ers, with ample room for lectures,
classes and experimental work, with
the new dignity and prestige which
will attach to our college when fully
equipped for its great work, we
should seem to be upon the threshold
of the greatest broadening out in the
history of the college. New students
should be attracted In greater num
bers than ever before. Instructors
should be better content to remain
in the college; in short, the whole in
stitution would be at once enlarged
and rendered more stable.
President Bryan deserves great
credit for his work in persuading the
legislative committees of the need of
the new buildings, which is in line
with the great constructive work
which he has done for the college.
If the student body will but live up
to the high privileges which the
state's bounty has conferred upon
every member of the college, Wash
ington State College will take a more
prominent position in the general
opinion of the people of the country.
Art Exhibit
Miss Orllla E. Miner and Miss Sara
B. Tuttle are exhibiting in Miss Min
er's studios on Main street Friday
and Saturday afternoons of this
week. The exhibit will include oil,
charcoal and watercolor sketches and
portraits by Miss Tuttle, and decorat
ed china by Miss Miner and her stu
dents from both Pullman and Colfax.
Miss Miner is also showing some very
interesting photography. All inter
ested are most cordially invited to
visit the studios and inspect the work.
Meeting of College Regents
The regular bl-mothly meeting of
the board of regents of the State Col
lege will occur at Pullman Wednes
day, February 19. In view of certain
recent newspaper publications the
board desires to announce that any
person or persons wishing to present
charges against the administration of
the college will have an opportunity
to file written, specific charges at
that time and place and a hearing
thereon will be granted and the same
considered by the board of regents.
Secretary, Board of Regents.
Christian Science
Christian Science services are held
every Sunday morning at 11 o'clock
in Masonic hall. All are welcome.
The subject for next Sunday's lesson
sermon Is "Soul." Golden text: "The
Lord is good unto them ; that wait
for him. to the soul that seeketh
him," Lam mentations 3:25.
A Tribute to Thorpe
In a strong sermon dealing with
the professionalism of Jim Thorpe,
the noted Indian athlete, Rev. C. H.
Harrison of the Congregational
church last Sunday evening quoted
the statement of Coach Stagg of Chi
cago that "The present amateur
rules make liars out of athletes,''
and further condemned the policy
of the collegiate rules committee
which prevents a college man who
wishes to play baseball from the love
of the sport from participating in the
national pastime unless he loses his
amateur standing.
Rev. Harrison's sermon was not
primarily concerned with the* ques
tion of professionalism, however,
but more directly with a contrast of
the manliness of Thorpe in admit
ting that he had played summer
baseball, thereby losing the two
greatest trophies that is is possible
for any athlete to win —an admis
sion that might well have remained
unsaid had Thorpe wished to prac
tice the deception. This sincere
and manly action was contrasted
with that of Justice Archibald, late
of the Commerce Court, when, after
being overwhelmingly indicted by the
Senate of the United States on the
charges of fraud and other criminal
practices, he stated that be* " had
done no wrong.*** 'I want to say,"
said Rev. Harrison, "that 1 would
be proud to grasp the hand of a man
like Thorpe, who, although he is
only an Indian, is at the bottom
much more of a man than is Archi
bald, with all his education, bril
liancy and high position."
State College Gives It Much Attention
ut Agricultural Short Courses—
Prominent Men on Programs
Better distribution of farm pro
ducts and more co-operation of farm
ers is the great present need. All
over the nation men are giving the
matter attention and the agricultural
colleges are studying the problems
It is interesting to note the promi
nence given these subjects at the ag
ricultural short courses which are be
ing conducted by the State College
this year. This week (February 17)
such courses are being held at North
Yakima and Puyallup. The North
Yakima schedule devotes a whole day
to "Co-operation and Marketing
Farm Products." Following is the
program for Thursday, February 20:
9:30 a. m.—"Co-operation of
Growers in Marketing."—W. H.
10:15 a. in. —"Commercializing
the Waste."—C. C. Mlchener, Port
1:30 p. m.—"The Relation of the
Producer and the Railroad In Mar
keting Farm Products."—Thos. Coo
per, Assistant to the President N. P.
Ry., St. Paul, Minn.

Hartman, Seattle.
8 p. m.—"The Producer and the
Consumer in Co-operation."Jahn P.
9 p. m.—Address. —Thos. Cooper.
The college is conducting eight
such schools In the state this year.
The fact that such men are willing to
spare time to address them is suffi
cient measure of the quality and
value of the work they are doing.
Next Wednesday evening. Febru
ary 19, will occur the annual dance
and oyster supper of the W. O. W.

Coman and Carl F. Uhdeu:
"That in view of certain recent
attacks upon the State College and
its administration by a secret com
mittee, the personnel of which Is as
yet unknown, and in view of the
further fact that these attacks were
immediately followed by the Intro
duction at Olympla of condemnatory
resolutions, and by bills and pro
posals of bills attacking the Institu
tion and threatening Its financial
basis and curtailing Its functions.
and In view of the fact that wide cir
culation has been given to these at
tacks and misrepresentations by the
public press, thereby Inflicting in
jury upon the college, we, the
Chamber of Commerce of Spokane,
desire to express to the board of re
gents and President E. A. Bryan our
belief that the attack is unworthy

So Tliat Traveling Public Can Get
a Taste of Pullman's Pure
Artesian Water
Acting upon the suggestion made
by The Herald several weeks ago,
the Chamber of Commerce has taken
up the matter of Installing drinking
fountains at both the railroad de
pots, to advertise Pullman's pure ar
tesian water to the traveling public.
The plan has been suggested to the
officials of both railroad companies
and they have shown much Interest
and promised to co-operate in any
way asked. The city council has
voted to supply the fountains with
water free of charge and designs and
cost estimates are now being secured.
The plan is to Install plain, but
handsome, concrete fountains, ad
joining the depot buildings, on which
the virtues of Pullman's flowing ar
tesian wells will be advertised. The
train men will be asked to do their
part by Informing' passengers that
when they reach Pullman they can
secure a drink of the coldest, purest
and best artesian water in the state.
The whole Ideals to emphasize and
give publicity, to the great asset
which Pullman possesses in her nu
merous flowing artesian wells.
