Organization Perfected .to Amiga
for Open and Free Discussion of i
Matters of Public Interest
A group of 25 business men and
\ members of the college faculty met
in the chamber of commerce rooms
Tuesday evening and organized the I
Pullman Community Educational
Association. Thos. Xeill was elected'
temporary chairman and L. F. Jack-
son temporary secretary. Dr. Mc-
Cully briefly outlined the aims and
need of an open forum for the dis
cussion of matters of public import- 1
ance in order that the people may
. understand them and be prepared to
act Intelligently regarding them.
After considerable discussion the fol
lowing preamble and constitution,
were adopted:
The events of the past few years
have made in plain that the world
has been given into the hands of'
democracy. If democracy is to prove
itself efficient in coping with its en- [
larged responsibilities the individual j
cifizen —upon whom after all the so- I
cial order rests — must become in j
formed, intelligent and active.
To this end it is highly desirable |
that in every community there be I
established agencies of an education-!
al sort to promote these qualities in !
our citizens. This means no sup
planting of our present system of i
schools; let them be developed and j
used to the utmost. But It is daily
becoming clearer that our present ed
ucational undertakings are inade
quate to meet the demands of our 1
growing democracy. Limited as,
they are in application to the period!
of childhood and early youth they j
cease to function Just when the re-1
.* sponsibilities of citizenship begin to']
make serious demands. Most of our '
serious economic, political and social
problems are, and Inevitably must j
be, meaningless to the inexperienced '
pupils in our schools; they become j
vitally significant only in the midst
of the sturdy experiences of life. If,
then, the demands of our democratic
society are to be met as they arise
the process of education must be
carried further, into the years of ma-1
turity. |
Recognizing these facts, and pur-1
posing earnestly to cope with the con- j
ditions that confront us, we. the un- j
dersigned citizens of Pullman, Wash- I
ington, therefore organize ourselves
together as the Pullman Community
Educational Association.
The objects of this association are:
1. To 'co-operate with and supple- |
■Jnent existing educational agencies!
in the service of the community. :
.(2. To conduct a public forum for
the open, free discussion of matters I
of public interest. j
3. To promote all activities de
signed to secure a more effective |
democratic citizenship.
P' It is distinctly understood that this |
association is educational In nature, j
not propogandlst. Its aim is not the |
advancement of any party or plea; it
la rather the promotion of social in- j

V. O. Sargent Named to Succeed Him
—Lew Salary Given M Cause for
On November 1 A. R. Boyd will
cease his duties as chief of police of
the city of Pullman and will be suc
ceeded by V. O. Sargent. Mr. Boyd
tendered, his resignation to the city
council at its adjourned meeting
Monday evening and Mr. Sargent was
named as his successor by Mayor N.
K. .1. Gentry following hie endorse
ment by the city council. The re
tiring chief of police, who has given
satisfactory service for the past two
rears, gave as a reason for his resig
nation the fact that the salary at
ached to the office, $100 per month,
a not a living stipend, and that he
mist seek more lucrative employ
nent. Upon the reading of the resls
lation Councilman Duthle moved that
It be dot'accepted; but; the motion
was not supported and Councilman
Vye offered a second motion that the
resignation be accepted. The mo
ion prevailed and the name of Mr.
■"argent was at once suggested for
the position. His appointment by
Mayor Gentry followed.
Considerable objection has beeu
made by private citizens to the ap
pointment of Mr. Sargent, the claim
!>cing that he is a newcomer to Pull
man and a non-taxpayer, while there
ire several local citizens who would
be glad of the appointment and
would serve efficiently. Others con
end that Mr Boyd should be retained
and his salary raised in proportion
to general wage increases and com
mensurate with the duties of the of
Only four couneilmen were pres
ent at the meeting Monday evening,
Couneilmen Nye, Roth, Duthie and
Rounds, while Couneilmen Ham

sent. It is not Improbable that
further action in the matter will be
taken at the next meeting of the city

Pullman Trio. Winners of Northwest
Honors. Presented With Heauti
f til Tokens —(.nest-, a'
.......... t. ... „. .
' Chtaihtfer Luncheon '-*'.' ■"".'>
The Misses Grace Troy, Zylpha
Baton and Gladys Henry, of Pullman,
champion fruit and vegetable canners
of the three Northwestern states, are
the proud possessors of beautiful gold
medals, presented Tuesday noon by
the chamber of commerce, in recog
nition of the brilliant success of the
Pullman girls in winning their way,
step by step, to the highest canning
club honors possible to attain. The
members of the champion trio were
quests of the chamber of commerce
at its Tuesday noon luncheon, and
the medals, Inscribed with the names
of the young ladies, were presented
by Dr. W. A. Spalding, president of
the chamber. In well chosen words
Dr. Spalding spoke the feelings of
every citizen of Pullman when he
congratulated the young ladies upon
their remarkable attainments and
thanked them most cordially for the
recognition which they had brought
to Pullman through their efforts
First, the young ladies won the.
championship of Whitman county,
then the championship of the state
and finally they captured the cham
pionship of the three Northwestern
states, Washington, Oregon and Ida
Miss Troy, captain of the team,
responded in a fitting manner, thank
ing the people of Pullman for the
encouragement and support given
the team members.
The. following feature story con
cerning the achievements of the Pull
man girls was printed In last Sun
day's Spokesman-Review, and, be
cause of the keen Interest of local
people, is reprinted here:
Herewith is a picture of the win
ning Girls' Canning team at the Spo
kane Interstate fair, 1919. The team
Is from Pullman, Whitman county.
Wash. The other contesting teams
were from Idaho and Oregon. Idaho
winning second place and Oregon
third place. They began their can
ning work May 31. 1918. when their
canning club; the 4-K club (Kan
Kaiser Kanning Klub) was organized.
The team selected from this club to
contest consisted of but two girls but
the regulations at th* Interstate fair
required three members for 1919 and
so Miss Henry was added. As a
mutter of fact Miss Troy won the
honors at the state fair in 1918 alone
as her story will show and so all the
more credit Is due this team for
winning at the Interstate this fall.
Tells Experienced
Miss Troy tells of her achievement j
last year as follows: !
a.The Kau Kaiser Kluh, of which 1 i
was a member^ was organized .May 31
1918, before the county club leaders
and home demonstrators at the col
lege (W. S. C.i as a lesson in club |
organization. The day we were or- I
ganized we started selling jar lift-'
ers to raise funds with which to
work. We made and sold these Int
ers for about a mouth until we
learned that they had been patented
but we had made about 113 so were
proud of our business venture. j
"Our first public appearance as a.
club was in the community war'
workers' parade in which we had a '
float. Later in the summer we gave j
two public demonstrations, By this '
time different people in the town
called on us to help them with their j
canning and we were glad of this i
experience. We also did some can- j
ning for the community war workers. i
This kept us busy all summer.
"The contest among the different j
cunning teams of Whitman county
was held the last of August. Zylpha j
Baton and myself had been chosen j
from our club to represent Pullman, j
As the contest was to be held at Pull
man we entertained the out-of-town
teams at a party the night before I
the contest. The contest started in ,'
the morning and we were all through
by three in the afternoon. That;
same evening we learned that we :
had won. Of course we were pleased j
since that meant we would be sent
to the state fair.
"We worked like troopers after we ;
found we were to go to the fair. We
were rather tired, but happy and
locked forward to a good time, when i
vi left for Yakima on Sunday morn
ing Everything went along fine <
until late Sunday evening when Zyl- i
pha became 111. To make a long
story short the next day we got to
Yakima and the doctor said Zylpha |
had appendicitis. She was operated I
Oh that same day. That left me the I
sole supporter of Whitman county., i
The judges told me I could can alone ; i
if I wanted to but T did not have to. i
I wasn't pleased with the thought.«
of canning alone, but since I was <
sent to the fair for that purpose ij
deeded it would be best to do so, j i
for I didn't want anyone to think <
Whitman county was represented by i
slackers. ■ ■„■'• I
! • "lam certainly glad that I decid- i
ed to can, for after I reached home
I. was informed that Zylpha and l,«
would represent Washington at the . i
Interstate fair in 191!'. .1
"Though I attended all the meet-It
ings and.did the best that I could ji
this year, I did not do all the canning ' i
l should like to have done, so next
year 1 am going to try hard to 'make
my best better.' "

big boost for the banker-farmer con

the interests of the farmer and the

legitimate business element, are at
variance," said Mr. Elmore. "They
