THE DAILY STAR-MIRROR, MOSCOW IDAHO, WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 30. 1918
We Emphatically Refuse To
into believing that Ready-to-Wear Prices will be higher or that there will be a shortage of Garments.
THERE POSITIVELY WILL NOT BE; in fact, it is scarcely a month since the War Economy Board at Washington gave out the statement that
there would be an ample supply of wool for manufacturing purposes, and that now there were enormous quantities of piece goods held in reserve by
several of the larger manufacturers.
RIGHT NOW WE CAN AND ARE BUYING READY-TO-WEAR GARMENTS FROM SOM E OF THE LARGEST HOUSES IN THE
COUNTRY AT A DISCOUNT. We are reducing our prices accordingly for Our Annual Thanksgiving Sale; and, mind you, the garments offered
you by this shop have been here only a month at the most—some less than a week. They are not garments purchased a year ago for sales purposes.
Please remember that this shop has made the lowest prices known on High-grade Wearing Apparel in the Inland Empire for the past five years, and
will continue to make those prices.
The Annual Thanksgiving Sale—starting Friday morning at 9:00 o'clock—will prove the above statements. Again we say:
BU Y !" It's the only real test and a plan we have always encouraged.

MUSIC SCHOOL CROWS
SIEE CLUBS FORMED
STÜDENT AND FACULTY RE
CITALS SCHEDULED THIS
In spite of war conditions and the
smaller enrollment of girls, it is ex
pected there will be an unusual amount
of music on the campus this year. More
than the average number of students are
majoring in music, and there are a
great many students in all the musical
Large glee clubs for both the boys
and the girls have been organized, but
the quarantine has caused a somewhat
temporary delay of rehearsals. How
ever, a rehearsal of the boys' club is
scheduled for Monday night and it is
hoped work with the girls may con
tinue next week.
Mr. Bangs, who kindly volunteered
to lead the band until a permanent lead
er might be secured, has it nicely started
now. Practices are held twice a week,
but as yet no special time for meeting
has been scheduled.
Miss Wegmann is working on her
repertoire, and hopes to give a recital
as soon as the quarantine is over. She
also expects to have several student
recitals thruout the year.
Private lessons in music are being
given now to all students on Ihe
MILITARY POLICE "SHOO" AWAY
ALL SUSPECTS FROM
The military police, or more familiarly,
the M. P's, have made their first ap
pearance on the campus. On the original
force, Bill Newmon, was chief of staff,
and Robert Davis the roundsman.
"Poozey" was taken with the
however, and Erwin Lamb was appointed
in his place.
There has been no difficulty in pre
serving law and order about the campus,
A) the chief duties of the M. P's are,
meeting the trains and keeping the fac
ulty members out of the barber shops.
The first train the police meet comes
in at 10:41 mornings, and the last comes
in at 7:58 in the evening. Anyone taken
from the trains who wishes to enter the
University quarantine is sent to the
Christian Science church.
He must stay there four days, or until
the doctor in charge finds he hasn't the
"Flu." When four days are up the person
is within the University quarantine and
must obey quarantine regulations.
Military policemen fake five or six
people to the Christian Science church
every day. Some of their victims are
vocational men who have just come in,
and others are returned students and
instructors who have been taking an un
official leave of absence during the
PROMINENT IDAHO STUDENT

Ralph B. Gochnour, a former student
at the University and a reporter for the
Argonaut, is in a very critical condition
T. C. He was taken to the hospital
on October 20 with a case of the "Flu,'
which * developed into complication of
typhoid fever and pneumonia and is
looked for soon. Mr. Gochnour is a
very prominent man on the campus and
his condition is being anxiously watched
by many friends.
NEAR RIOT ON STEPS
SALE OF COOKIES AND POP
CORN BALLS TO S. A. T. C. MEN
The north steps of the Administration
building were the scene of a near riot
last Wednesday afternoon. The mem
bers of Phi Upsilon Omicrow the Home
Economics professional fraternity saw
the desire for sweets on the campus
during the quarantine and endeavored
to satisfy it.
With due respect to Herbert Hoover's
as well as the Board of Health's rules
of conservation and congregation the
girls succeeded in making popcorn balls.,
chocolate and oatmeal cookies and mac
aroons. Just before the boys were dis
missed at 2:30, three Home Economic
seniors, Cora Mae Jones, Ruth York,
and Helga Anderson, appeared in white
aprons, carrying a huge basket filled
with their wares.
A non-com on his way from the
building aroused no little excitement
when he waved a fresh piece of crack
erjack before the eyes of his hungry
fellows. Then the fun began. The boys
rushed toward the steps, cries of "Me
next," "Sack of popcorn,'
just so it's a cookie," almost deafened
the busy girls. It was with great dis
appointment that they sold the last
crumb, knowing they must send many
a boy away with only a peek at the
The sale met with such a warm wel
come that the fraternity expects to re
peat it on a larger scale soon. The
proceeds will be used for war work.
Dean Eldridge Has Slight Operation
Dean Eldridge underwent an opera
tion for tonsilitus at a local hospital

his work by the middle of the week.

this year are raising 640 acres of

RUSES BIS SPUDS
ARDIE GUSTAFSEN MAKES
PROFIT BY GROWING
Ardie Gustafson, 10 years old, son
of F. M. Gustafson, living three miles
southwest of Moscow, owner of Sun
nyside farm, is making a success of
agriculture. The boy secured 15
pounds of Idaho Rural potatoes for
seed last spring, getting them from
Professor Wilson, club leader for La
tah county. He has just dug 435
pounds of extra choice potatoes.
He has several other varieties, in
cluding Early Rose, Netted Gem and
Early Ohio. From the latter variety
he dug from one row, with 295 hills
in it, 10 large sacks full of fine po
tatoes, but the Idaho Rurals are said
to be especially fine, uniform, large
and perfect in every way. The little
fellow has not dug his Early Rose and
Netted Gems yet. He will make a re
port to Club Leader Wilson and hopes
to win a prize.
Mr. Gustafson brought in 2825
pounds of fine potatoes today for
which he received a cent a pound.
These were taken from three rows, of
295 hills each, an average of 942
pounds to the row or almost 3 1-2
pounds to the hill. Mr. Gustafson
brought a Mills Prize potato weigh-
ing four pounds and four ounces to
the editorial room of The Star-Mirror
where it was placed on exhibition in
the window. He says he raised scores
of potatoes weighing more than three
pounds each. He has about two acres
of potatoes this year.
FOOTBALL SCHEDULE IS UPSET
Practice is Called Off This Week—
Sunday's Game is Prevented
Football practice was called off this
week in the collegiate section of the
S. A. T. C.
it is generally supposed to be that it
was either an order from Lieutenant
Katolik who desires to utilize every way
possible to prevent the spread of the
"Flu," or on account of three men re
ceiving slight injuries in practice last
A game was scheduled for last Sunday
afternoon, but the rain prevented it.
Lieutenants Meehan and Hansen had
announced that they would give a feed to
the team winning two out of three games,
and a number of the boys are disappoint
ed because they think their chance for
that feed is gone.
Should practice be resumed it is not
probable that football will be attempted
this year with outside teams on account
of the Spanish influezna.
No reason was given, tho
