Conference Rules Are Effective ou
January 1
1 Doc Bohler just returned from the
Pacific Coast conference at Portland,
and reports thai athletics will be In
full swing In 1919. Schedules have
been worked out in all branches of
athletics, and the college will have a
good share of games here.
The conference had many perplex
ing problems to debate and calve, re
sulting from the war. Besides de
ciding that all rules of both tbe Pa
cific Coast and Northwest intercol
legiate conferences, including the
freshman eligibility clause, be put in
operation January 1, 1919, one of
the most important items at the gath
ering of college representatives was
the adoption of the 1919 football
A glance at the full schedule of
gridiron contests proves beyond
doubt that college sports will be re
sumed in all their glory In 1919.
No limit was placed upon the num
ber of players making trips, but sen
timent was manifest that a spirit of
economy prevail at each college at
least until the treasuries resumed
their former status.
The officers elected by the Pacific
Coast conference were XV. C. Krue
gel, Washington State College, presi
dent; Dr. A. D. Browne, Oregon Ag
ricultural College, secretary. Mr.
Kruegel was the State College repre
sentative at this conference. Dr.
Solon Shedd was representative for a
number of years. He served in that
capacity since first coming to the
college In 1896. Many inquiries were
made about him at the conference.
Dr. Shedd always took a great inter
est in athletics, and was especially
fond of football. He never played
when a student, but would undoubt
edly have been a football star if the
sport had existed at Stanford during
his college days. Dr. Shedd's service
on the athletic board will not soon be
lU-solutioiis Adopted
The following resolutions were
adopted by the Pacific Coast con
"That any student entering any
line of military service with the
armed forces be given the athletic
standing at the close of the war or
when he returns to college that he
held on the date of his withdrawal."
"That only members of the 1918
football teams satisfying conference
rules be awarded college athletic let
According to the first resolution
anyone who has played a team, eith
er in the regular army or S. A. T. Cf,
will not have the season deducted
from the four years allowed on col
lege teams. However, school work
passed during service In the S. A. T.
C. will count toward sophomore
The second resolution, regarding
awarding of letters, was adopted be
cause of the number of players on
S. A. T. C. teams which represent the
colleges this year, but who never
graduated from high school and who
do not intend to return after being
mustered out.
It was further decided that each
Institution, as far as possible, ar
range games on a two-year contract,
each Institution to pay Its own ex
penses and keep its own receipts or
have a reciprocal guarantee of a rea
sonable amount.
The conference delegates went on
record as favoring intramural ath
letics, heartily favoring a system
which will insure that every student
in the institution represented in the
conference participate regularly in
some form of healthful sport.
The Pacific Coast conference track
meet was awarded to the University
of Washington, to be held In Seattle
on June 7. The Northwest confer
ence meet will probably be held at

The schedule^ for baseball is not

By President B. O. Holland
There is groundless pessimism evi
denced in our fear that the return
to civil life of millions of soldiers
and munition workers may be fol
lowed by extansive unemployment
and social unrest.
Such pessimism is rooted in our
failure to perceive what the Immedi
ate future holds for all Intelligent,
law-abiding people, and amounts to
thinking in terms of yesterday in
stead of tomorrow. Considering this
great tomorrow of ours, we should
see that whatever it. lacks, there is
no lack of things to be done.
Right at hand is the task of pro
visioning, comforting, and rehabili
tating areas of the old world, conti
nental In scope, that have been swept
by the fury of war. Compared to this
undertaking, the relief of - famine in
India or China would be the work of
a day. The task of Increasing food
production will require the employ
ment of hundreds of thousands of
additional men.
Then, there are other things for
us to do at home. The United States,
according to estimates, possesses
more than a billion acres of land that
can be used for agricultural produc
tion. Less than 400,000,000 acres
of this vast, tillable domain now are
used. To reach with the plow our
unused 600,000,000, mighty feats in
engineering, drainage, Irrigation and
clearing must be accomplished.
Waiving for the present all discus
sions as to the best method of pro
cedure, all of us admit that fruitful
opportunities for employ are of
fered by our unreclaimed land do
main, and that the resources, in
dustry, and skill of the American
people are equal to the task of recla
Before 19 14, there came to the
United States each year, between
1,000,000 and 1,200,000 immigrants.
During the past four years the flow
has ceased. Consequently, the farms
have been depleted of help, and every
industry has had to run shorthanded.
No one should be disturbed about
America being able to absorb in the
peace-time industries all the soldiers
in France and the men in our can
In America we perceive more clear
ly than before the war, the world and
Its opportunities overseas. There is
Siberia, for example, reaching from
Europe to the Pacific and practically
doubling the length and breadth of
this country; holding locked within
Its vast boundary lines all in soil,
mineral, water power and forest that
iles out of doors; and scarcely on the
threshold of Industrial development.
Russia Is In a mighty struggle,
which, beginning in her overthrow of
autocracy of the Romanoffs, now Is
In a. contest with bolshevism which
is nothing less than the autocracy of
Ignorance, the mob and the gutter
Succeeding that of Romanoffs, lloh
enzollarns and Hapsburgs.
Great though the obstacles, Rus
sia is emerging from the polar ice of
ignorance that has held her bound
for centuries. If in the United States
we overflow our 600,000,000 in un
developed land and the new indus
tries thai will be built thereupon, we

one of them said that in her recon
struction Russia would look to
America for help more than to any
Other nation in the world.
Sj, If we In America suffer from
unemployment, it will be for no lack
of opportunity here or overseas.
There has never been a time In all
human history when the wrold was
so rich In opportunity as today. If

hem of the garment" in the great
work to be done, there shall be serv

Increase In All Respiratory Dis
eases After the Influenza
Epidemic Probable.
Influenza Expected to Lurk for Mentha
How to Guard Agalntt Pneumonia.
Common Colds Highly Catchinglm
portance of Suitable Clothing Could
Save 100,000 Live*.
Washington, D. C—With the subsid
ence of the epidemic of Influenza the
attention of health officers ls directed
to pneumonia, bronchitis and other
diseases of the respiratory system
which regularly cause a large number
of deaths, especially during the winter
sen ton. According to Rupert Blue,
Surgeon General of the United Statea
Public Health Service, these diseases
will be especially prevalent this win
ter unless the people are particularly
careful to obey health Instructions.
"The present epidemic," said Bur
geon General Blue, "hat taught by bit
ter experience how readily a condition
beginning apparently as a slight cold
may go on to pneumonia and death.
Although the worst of the epidemic la
over, there will continue to be a large
number of scattered cases, many of
them mild and unrecognized, which
will be danger spots to be guarded
against." The Surgeon General likened
the present situation to that after a
great fire, saying, "No Are chief who
understand* his business stops playing
the hose on the charred debris as soon
as the flames and visible fire have dis
appeared. On the contrary, he con
tinues the water for hours and even
days, for he knows that there la dan
ger of the fire rekindling from smol
dering embers."
"Then you fear another outbreak of
Influenza?" he was asked. "Not neces
sarily another large epidemic," said
the Surgeon General, "but unless the
people learn to realize the seriousness
of the danger they will be compelled to
pay a heavy death toll from pneumo
nia and other respiratory diseases.
Common Cold* Highly Catching.
"It Is encouraging to observe that
people are beginning to learn that or
dinary coughs and colds are highly
catching and are spread from person
to person by means of droplets of
germ laden mucus. Such droplets are
■prayed Into the air when careless or
Ignorant people cough or sneeze with
out covering their mouth and nose. It
Is also good to know that people have
learned something about the value of
fresh air. In summer, when people
are largely out of doors, the respira
tory diseases (coughs, colds, pneumo
nia, etc.) are infrequent; In the fall,
as people begin to remain Indoors, the
respiratory diseases Increase; in the
winter, when people are prone to stay
ln badly ventilated, overheated rooms,
the respiratory diseases become very
Bultable Clothing Important.
"Still another factor in the produc
tion of colds, pneumonia and other re
spiratory diseases ls carelessness or Ig
norance of the people regarding suit
able clothing during tho seasons when
the weather suddenly changes, sitting
in warm rooms too heavily dressed or,
what ls even more common, especially
among women, dressing so lightly that
windows are kept closed ln order to be
comfortably warm. This ls a very in
jurious practice.
Could Save 100,000 Lives.
"I believe we could easily save one
hundred thousand lives annually ln
the United States if all the people
would adopt tlie system of fresh air
living followed, for example, in tuber
culosis sanatoria. There Is nothing
mysterious about lt —no specific medi
cine, no vaccine. Tho Important thing
Is right living, good food and plenty of
fresh air.
Droplet Infection Explained In Picture*.
"The Bureau of Public Health,
Treasury Department has Just issued
a striking poster drawn by Berryman,
the well-known Washington cartoonist
The poster exemplifies the modern
method of health education. A few
years ago, under similar circumstances,
the health authorities would have Is
sued an official dry but scientifically
accurate bulletin teaching the role of
droplet Infection in the spread of re
spiratory diseases. The only ones who
would have understood the bulletin
would have been those who already
knew all about the subject Tho man
in the street the plain citizen and the
many millions who toll for their living
would have had no time and no desire
to wade through the technical phrase*

never greater than at the present

thorities, j
This .situation not only affords op
portunity for patriotic service but in
sures a strong market and profitable
prices. Increased production, how
ever, Involves a better understand
ing of soil management, of crop re
quirements, of the control of insect
pests and plant diseases, of the care
of and feeding of animals, of the
proper use and care of the more com
plex farm machinery and better busi
ness management.
To meet this need the State Col
lege !s offering a short course of
practical instruction beginning
January <>. 1919, and continuing six
weeks, Work Is offered in soils,
farm crops, fruit growing, vegetable
gardening, live stock production,
dairying, poultry production, farm
engines, farm management, farm ac
counts, accidents and diseases of
farm animals, good roads, plant dis
eases, insect pests, home economics,
and miscellaneous subjects of gen
eral interest.
The course is open to cnyone who
can red or write and students may
select any subject they choose.
No tuition is charged. Necessary
books and stationery should not cost
over $15. Board and room will cost
$8 to $10 per week.

students say:

Pullman People Should Not Neglect
Their Kidneys
No kidney ailment is unimportant.
Don't overlook the slightest backache
or urinary irregularity. Nature may
be warning you of approaching
dropsy, gravel or Blight's disease.
Kidney disease is seldom fatal if
treated in time, but neglect may pave
the way. Don's neglect a lame or
aching back another day. Don't ig
nore dizzy spells, headaches, weari
need kidney help begin using the re
liable, time-tried remedy, Doan's
Kidney Pills. For 50 years, Doan's
have been found effective. Endorsed
by Pullman people
Mrs. R. A. Emerson, 1211 Star
Route St., Pullman, says: "1 suffered
a great deal from a dull pain across
the small of my back. 1 felt tired
all the time and had but little ambi
tion. My kidneys acted irregularly
and caused me much annoyance.
Doan's Kidney Pills proved very
beneficial and soon removed the ail
ments." (Statement given April 21,
A Later Endorsement
On July 5, 1916, Mrs. Emerson
added: "I am just as trong in my
praise of Doan's Kidney Pills now
as I was when 1 previously endorsed
them. Doan's never fail to give me
prompt relief when I use them."
