ARISTOCRATIC ROAR TO
HEAD CRESCENT HERD
Nebraska Grnnd Champion Dm -
Jersey Purchased by G. O. Swales *
of Crescent Stock Farm
One of the finest Duroc-Jersey
boars ever brought to the Inland Em
pire is the animal received Monday
ot this week by G. O. Swales, man
ager of the Crescent Stock Farm, six
miles southeast of Pullman. The
bear was purchased from Ahrans
Brothers, Columbus, Nebraska, breed
ers of Duroc-Jersey hogs of national
line, and of him Mr. Swales says:
"I have believed before that I had
high class boars with my herd, but
this fellow far outclasses any boar I
ever owned and he is likely to prove
a sensation at next fall's shows."
The hoar is a get of "Great I Am,"
grand champion boar of Nebraska,
1920, winning his honors at the great
est hog show of the United States,
excepting, perhaps, the Chicago In
ternational. He was farrowed Sep
tember 24, 1919, and won first prize,
futurity boar, at the N-braska State
fair, as well as grand champion at
the Boone county fair. The dam of
this boar was sired by Smooth Giant,
another great Duroc-Jersey of the
East.
The day following his return from
the fall show circuit, which included
Spokane, Lewiston and Portland, Mr. i
Swales had the misfortune to lose
his herd head, "Crescent's Joe Ori
on," which had grabbed the cham
pionship honors. He set about to
locate the best boar to. be had to re
place Crescent's Joe, and believes
that he has found him in the hoar
received this week.

; men of the city at the chamber of

dcn't make them any cleaner; they
. don't make them any better, and they
don't make any better sportsmanship
than was shown by the Cougar team
this year,' he said. The coach re
viewed the incidents of the closing
game of the season with Nebraska,
when the Cougars overcame a big
lead and won the game In the final
quarter. The display of courage and
dogged determination In the face of
great obstacles was one of the most
satisfying experiences in his life, said
Coach Welch. The Cougar coach re
turned last Thursday from a visit to

trip to Washington, D. C, at the last
minute. He is out with a big boost
for the spirit and morale of the team

PROPOSED TAX ON «AS
BRINGS ON DISCUSSION
The proposal to levy a tax on gaso
line to provide funds for road main
tenance came in for a healthy dis
cussion, pro and con, at the chamber
of commerce meeting Tuesday, the
proposal having its proponents and
its opponents among the business
men. It was brought out. that the
proposed tax, to be paid by all users,
would distribute the burden of taxa
tion fairly, each automobile driver
paying in proportion to the number
of miles driven on the public high
ways, and would also prove a big
source of revenue from tourists, who
now pay nothing toward the main
tenance of the public highways. Rep
resentative Sanger suggested that the
legislature first be asked to pass i
law defining gasoline, as to quality,
and demand that the fluid pass a cer
tain gravity test before it can be sold
for use in automobiles. "If we pay
a tax on gasoline, then let us be as
sured that we are getting gasoline,
rather than water," he said.
