FRIEND OF COLLEGE CALLED_BY DEATH Charles Timblln was Man of Char acter, Honor, and Accomplish* • ments —Leaves Thousands of Friends Charles Timblln, a loyal friend and supporter of Washington State College, died at his home in Spokane Saturday morning, March 24th. Mr. Timblln was the head of the depart ment of Elementary Science and an instructor In mathematics at the col lege from 1905 to 1911. While here he was one of the most energetic and most beloved workers. He served on many of the faculty committees, and was chairman of perhaps the first State College interscholastic track meet. Mr. Timblin was a man who reached the hearts and influenced the lives of the students. His straightforward, direct advice and, more than all, the Influence of his own life, helped them to realize a broader and truer vision. Since he first came here. Mr. Timblln fre quently loaned money to students that they might secure an education. He guaranteed notes for many others. In 1911 he was forced to secure work which would take him out of doors more, and obtained a position as agent for the Western Union Life Insurance company. Mr. Timblln was a remarkable business man and rose rapidly in the company. Six weeks ago he was made vice presi dent. Although he was no longer offici ally connected with the college, Mr. Tiinblln's Interest in Washington State did not decrease. Last fall he was the principal speaker at the Idaho rally. Many other times he has added enthusiasm to a college event with his optimistic, straight forward remarks. Wherever he has been, he has been a friend and boost er of Washington State. Former President E. A. Bryan said of Mr. Tlmblln's death: "This is In deed a shock to me. Professor Tim blln was a most excellent teacher, 1 very Impulsive, yet a man of excel lent thought and disposition. His wonderful sympathy with students won him as many friends as any man who ever was connected with the col lege." R. L. Rutter, president of the Western Union Life, paid this trib ute to Mr. Timblin: "Charles Tim blin preached and practiced the gos- P«l of 'divine discontent" In hie en deavor for better and nobler things. He was one of the most courageous and characterful men I ever know— & man with a high sense of honor. He was royal-hearted—kind and generous to a fault. His optimism was Inspirational, and he did many helpful things for his friends and ac quaintances, particularly young men and boys." i "Many young men owe their suc cess in life directly to Mr. Timblln. He was very popular with the stu dents at W. S. C, where he was "own among them as 'Timmie'." Th'B 8 part of the statement made »y R. M. Malpas, vice president of 'be Western Union Life. President Holland, Professors Klmbrough, Bohler, and Isaacs, and many of the alumni and former stu dents of the college attended the uneral. Floral offerings and rese ctions of sympathy were also sent <* the faculty and by the student h °dy of Washington State.

Neill. who assisted materially in making Pullman his tory during the years of the town's infancy and after it had assumed greater proportions, has announced his intention to return to the town of his adoption and will again be a full-fledged Pullman citizen very shortly. The announcement will be greeted with a great degree of sat isfaction by the many old-time Pull manites who remember the valuable services rendered by Judge Neill In the interests of the municipality dur ing his long residence here. Judge Neill left Pullman seven years ago upon election to the superior judg ship of the county. His residence in the county seat town has been marked by the same enthusiastic in terest in that city's progress and de velopment as attended his residence here. The following story concerning Judge Neill's decision to return to the college town is taken from Wednesday's Colfax Palouser: "Last Saturday the law firm of Neill & Burgunder was dissolved, the senior member of the firm re tiring, and Mr. Burgunder will con tinue the practice in the future. Judge Neill will take a deserved va cation from the practice of law this summer, but will continue to reside at Colfax at least until after school has closed. After that, his plans have not yet fully been made, but it is likely that the family will move to Pullman, where Judge Neill has property Interests, and where his daughter, Miss Marjorie. will attend the State College. "Judge Neill Is one of the pioneer Whitman county jurists and his standing in the profession Is second to none. His loss to Colfax, how ever, will be more keenly felt through the services he has been wont to render In the way of civic betterment. His worth to the city during the years of his last residence here is well-nigh Incalculable. Al ways a leader in all that makes for the good of the community, Judge Neill has perhaps contributed more time and thought to Colfax's civic problems than any other man during the past several years. It is with a feeling of keen regret that the Pa louser congratulates Pullman upon the return of an honored and upright citizen." PULLMAN. WASHINGTON, FRIDAY.

The family dog sallied forth to do battle with t he Intruder, but got considerably the worst of the argu ment, the coyote biting him severely. The coyote showed no signs of fear and following his conquest of the dog started leisurely down the road. Mr. Haxton started after the ani mal on horseback and soon located him In a near-by field. The coyote observed his pursuer and immediate ly turned and started slowly toward him. Mr Haxton waited until the animal was within about L'". steps of him and fired, two shots being re quired to kill the coyote. Fearing rabies. Mr. Haxton dispatched his dog. which had been bitten in several places, and brought the coyote car cass to Pullman for examination, Inasmuch as there are a large number of unmuzzled dog- in the Ilaxton neighborhood, fears are felt that, the coyote may have Inoculated some of them with the germs of the dread disease.

NUMBBR23 NON-PARTISAN LEAGUE TO ENTER WASHINGTON Their Best Speaker Will Visit Pull. ■nan and Deliver Address on Wednesday, April 11 Notice has been received that Ray McKaig, lecturer for tho non-parti san league of North Dakota, will be in Pullman Wednesday, April 11. Arrangements will probably be made to have him speak In the chamber of commerce room either in the afternoon or evening. Mr. McKaig is called the "John the Baptist", of this new league of farmers which, in the last election swept the state of North Dakota by a vote of four to one. In speaking of the work and pur pose of the non-partisan league Mr. McKaig says: "Our league la nothing more than an effort, through politics, to selve our marketing problems. We are go ing into the business of politics to make it clean; to help solve the rural school problem; to make our states places where we build for our citi zens instead of building for Wall street. Food gambling must stop. "1 am not a socialist. I am Just a non-partisan republican. Just a common-sensed citizen. They call us socialists and populists, but we're not. We captured the republican party in our state, and palled all the planks we favored in our republican party platform. Our ultimate aim is to go to Washington, by sending a few strong fighters there. We abolish partisan politics in state lines. We vote for the best man, for principle's sake, no matter what party he belongs to. "And we're going to win. This movement is spreading faster than populism ever spread; we take the office to the man and (he man does not seek our office. "We elected the whole state ticket in North Dakota by a vote of four to one. Even our supreme court we put through, because we are like Abra ham Lincoln—we would like to have God Almighty on our side, but we must have the supreme court. We are in the business to put the skids under invisible government, and wherever we find able, thinking men and women, we find a welcome. Our league is well equipped for this work; we own the biggest daily newspaper in North Dakota, the big gest weekly. 160 automobiles, and have a set of organizers and workers that are tremendous in power. "We will be In the state of Wash ington this summer and help to get the market in stable condition for all producers. We officially promise to enter the state of Washington on the same basis'as we enter Colorado .and Idaho, and unite this solid Northwest as the great political factor in pure politics."
