CIVIC INSTITUTE NEXT WEDNESDAY Will Be Conducted in M. E. Church by Mrs. J. <". Wilson and Others Next Wednesday, November 3, a civic institute, under the auspices of the civic committee of the Washing ton .State Federation ,of Women's Clubs, will be held in Pullman, in the auditorium of the Methodist church, beginning at 9:30 a. m. Mrs. J. C. Wilson, chairman of the state federation civic committee, will be present, and will speak twice during the day and also in the evening, and will conduct an hour of discussion. A number of local people and also jeople from naarby communities will tike part in the program. Much time lor discussion is provided. ' While a great variety of subjects of civic interest will be presented, both in the talks and discussions, one thought will dominate the entire pro gram: that this town and every other town, whether a little larger or a lit tle smaller, is a definite social unit; that progress will be most satisfac torily made in any town when com munity consciousness is aruosed, when every person considers himself a part of the community and sees in every other citizen one who has the right to share with him in the at tempt to solve the real problems that confront this particular community. The following quotation embodies the spirit that Mrs. Wilson hopes will pervade the whole institute: "The new spirit is the spirit of community realization, and the re sulting impulse to give this some ex pression in definite municipal house keeping. j "This is not 'town improvement' in the old sense; in the sense in which a few got together to do good to the town, to give it things, to In- duce the most prominent citizen to give it a fountain. They did that way when only a few in the town had an inkling of what the town might be. Now the need is to de velop the whole town to have, not merely an inkling, but a face-to-face look at what the town not only can be, but must be, if it keeps up with what the world is learning about liv ing. The new way of civic work is the way, not of patriotism, but of humanhood. "The heart of it is the revelation of the real solidarity in any town, and in all the towns. Community consciousness can be developed, just as most other consciousness can be developed, but not without effort. Each community must realize its own 'essential social function as a builder of the life of the state and of the race. This can come about only as community members recognize them selves as constituting that commun ity—not as merely living in it and on It. The means to this end is service. And the end it seeks —and this is really the beginning—is not 'town improvement,' but fellowship, and humanhood."—From "Civic Improve ment in Little Towns," by Zona Gale. An invitation is extended to every one to come to the meetings, to take Part in the discussions, to lend aid to this effort to emphasize the inter dependence of every interest in the town and community.

Caldwell, Alabama, Will Have Charge of Fruit By- Products Work Aside from the appointment of Dr. 0. E. Holland as successor to President E. A. Bryan, probably the most important action of the board i of regents last week was the creation; of a new division of the experiment station work and the appointment of Dr. J. S. Caldwell to take charge of the work. The regents appropriat ed $5000 for fruit by-products work and it is this phase of the experiment station atcivity that Dr. Caldwell will superintend. The new appointee wfll pay par ticular attention to attempts to pre serve the quality and flavor of fruit in drying and improving methods of marketing juices and the problem of economic uses of lower grades of fruit. The entire work is under taken with a view to solving the problem of marketing profitably that portion of the Washington fruit crop that is annually wasted. Dr. Cald well is well fitted for the work., He received his training at the Univer sity of Chicago and since that time has been with the Alabama experi ment station at Auburn, Alabama. He will arrive at the college early in December. Dr. Caldwell was ap- pointed on the recommendation of Dr. Ira D. Cardiff, director of the experiment station. Two graduates of the college were added to the faculty. Miss Lora Green, '12, was chosen reference librarian and J. J. Stratton, '12, was elected instructor in meat inspec tion for the Spokane hospital of the veterinary department. Miss Mabel McKay of Tenino, Wash., was chosen library assistant, and Miss Mamie Haasebrook was elected instructor in home economics. O. C. Gebart, of the University of Berlin, was made Instructor In German. The resigna tions of A. E. Sandell, clerk of the Puyallup Experiment station; V. R. Mcßride, superintendent of the poultry plant at the Puyallup sta tion; and Florence E. Ward, associ ate professor of vocational educa tion, were received. Miss Ward re signs in order to accept similar work in tho United States Department of Agriculture. The resignation of J. A. Tormey, director of the extension department, was accepted. JOYA CLUB PULLMAN, WASHINGTON, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 29. 1915 NO HOG SHOW THIS YEAR The committee in charge of the Pullman hog show yesterday decided not to hold the show this year. This decision was made on the report of J. H. Martin, one of the inspectors ol the State Commission of Agriculture, who came here at the request of the committee and made a thorough investigation. He found that contagious pneumonia was prevalent around Pullman and that hog cholera had developed in at least one herd, and there fore expressed the opinion that, while there would probably be little danger in holding the show, it would be better to avoid any possible risk by calling it off for this year. Contest Gains Thirty Members Chamber of Commerce Arranges for Crimson ami Gray Trail From Spokune and Dayton to Pullman There was an attendance of about 40 at the Chamber of Commerce luncheon Tuesday. Airs. S. C. Rob erts, president of the Civic League, was introduced and announced that Mrs. Wilson, chairman of the civic committee of the State Federation of Women's Clubs, would conduct an institute in Pullman next Wednesday afternoon and evening which all business men and people of Pullman are urged to attend and boost. F. C. Forrest reported -.fair the sign board committee that they had entered into a contract with the Trail Blazing Association of America to blaze a crimson and gray trail j from Spokane to Pullman via Ros : alia, Oakesdale, Garfield and Pa ■ louse and from Pullman to Dayton • via Lewiston, Idaho. This associa tion has blazed a red trail from the Atlantic to the Pacific, coast, with branch trails in other colors. The red trail runs through Spokane, and a blue trial has been" blazed from Spokane to Walla Walla via Colfax. Their representative at first object ed to the proposed crimson and gray trail because it would not conform '■ to the standard colors which the as ! sociation has copyrighted, but final ly agreed to adopt it and guaran ; teed that anyone can follow the trail from Spokane to Pullman, by day or night, without getting off the right road or asking a question. In the 500,000 guide books issued by the association, the crimson and gray trail will be designated as leading to Pullman, the home of the State College of Washington. H. Folger reported that the hog show committee had taken up the WHEAT PRICES DOWN The last few days have marked a slight reduction in wheat quotations and sales of that cereal are almost at a standstill, although small sales of oats and barley are reported. Yes terday's quotations were as follows: Red Russion wheat 75c Club wheat 78c Fortyfold wheat 80c Oats, per cwt $1.05 Barley, per cwt $1.20 t FATHER OF TWENTY CHILDREN R. B.

November 8 City Attorney Jamar Differs With At torney Voorhme of Colfax on Im portant Registration Question The registration books for the pri mary election of November 9 will re main open until the evening preced ing the primary, an opinion to this effect having been handed down by City Attorney M, S. Jamar, who, in his findings, differs considerably from from the interpretation of City Attorney Voorhees of Colfax, who contends that under the registration laws of the state the books must close 10 days previous to the primary elec question of the advisability of post- . poning the show, because of the prevalence of contagius hog diseases in this vicinity, with the state com missioner of agriculture and that he had instructed .1. H. Martin, an in-1 spector for the commission, to visit Pullman and make a careful investi gation of conditions. The commit tee will be governed by his report. The committee on building report ed that Architect Swain estimate, the cost, of remodeling the city ball, including the construction of a vault and providing a rest room, at about $2500, of which $700 would be re quired for the proposed alterations in the second story. The committee was instructed to confer with the city council regarding a division of the expense. The membership committee re ported that as a result of the con-j test 30 new members had been add- i ed to the organization, of whom the group led by W. L. Greenawalt had secured 18, thereby earning a ban quet at the expense of the group led by D. F. Staley. Mayor Jackson reported that the Northwestern Mausoleum Co. of Se attle was planning to erect a mauso leum in Pullman and he had been sent by a number of local people to \ inspect the mausoleums constructed by this company at Bellinghatn, Mt. Vernon and Tacoma. He found them first class In every particular, and said that the people in each of the cities visited spoke highly of the business methods of the company. He announced that representatives of the company had secured a site in Pullman and would place a propo sition before the people which he be lieves to be worthy of favorable con-; sideration. Mr. Cuthbert and Mr. Howe, rep resenting the company, were intro- i duced and spoke briefly, after which the meeting adjourned. — : : stone, having become the father of his twentieth child, a 10-pound boy, last Monday.

IN NEW QUARTERS The Houser Grain company and the George Henry real estate and in- J surance company are now housed in magnificent quarters in the Flatiron building-, having secured a lease on the room formerly occupied by tho Farmers State bank. Floyd Smith, the Houser agent, appears not at all out of place behind the fancy bank fixtures in the new quarters. — 1 ■ tion. Mr. Jamar bases his judgment] on the contention that the new reg- Istratlon law, under which the books ] will close 10 days previous to the.' primary election, does not become ef fectivo until January 1, 1916, and this belief is concurred In by George H. Watt, a member of the last legis lature. Up to the present time there has been little Inclination displayed by voters to register, less than one- j fourth the voting population having qualified for the primaries, and an 1 effort will be made to secure a full registration during the remaining time before tho primary.

About 40 voters at tended the meeting, and the delega tions from the three wards caucused separately, selecting their candi dates and later placing them before the entire caucus for consideration. J The First ward voters suggested the I name of J. M. Hammond for coun cilmanic candidate for the nomina tion for the one-year term in that ward, and George Walters, incum bent, was endorsed for the three year term. The electors of the Sec ond ward evidenced their confidence In Ira N. Nye, incumbent, and placed his name before the caucus for the three-year term. .1. P.

All the councilmanic positions will be left blank on the official ballots, and voters will be required to either use stickers or write in the names of their choice for these positions. As an afterthought of the caucus the question was raised, "Who will pay for the stickers?" Councilman Watt vouched the intelligence that tho city fathers could not legally make payment for the stickers, the candidates opined that the honors attached to city official duty were not sufficient to warrant the ex penditure on their part, the caucus adjourned without making provision for providing the pasters, and it re- mains for some public spirited phil anthropist to come to the relief of the candidates who will bid for pub- li,- favor land trouble) at the re quest of the voters assembled in caucus.
