The various organizations of farmers
in the United States, including the
Farmers Union, the Grange, the Cotton
Planters' Union and other organizations,
numbering more than a dozen, have
arranged to build a great university at
Washington, I). C., where farmers' sons
and daughters can be educated. The
plan is to have the school teach every
thing that a farmer should know or that
his wife or daughter should know. . It
is to be the most complete educational
institution, along agricultural lines, ever
planned in the United States and is to
cost about $8,000,000, or that is the
amount to be raised to build, equip and
operate the school. Subscriptions arc
now being taken to start the school and.
according to a story coming from Spo
kane. Inland Empire farmers are taking
an interest in the big educational enter
prise. The Spokane story follows :
; 1
"Twenty-two voluntary donations or
subscriptions, totalling $2600, already
have come from farmers of this state for
the agricultural temple which farmers
of America intend to build at Washing
ton as an aid to all agricultural enter
prises,' said A. A. Elmore of Spokane^
chairman of the national committee
which has this enterprise in charge.
'They are from $25 to $200 each.'
"VVe will ask farmers to turn in Lib
erty bonds as a building and endow
ment fund for the temple. It is proposed
to expend $1,250,000 on the temple and
to provide an endowment fund of $5,
000.000 or $6,000,000.
"This temple was decided upon at a
recent national session in Washington
of representatives of 15 organizations of
farmers. It was felt that such an enter
prise will be of great value."
R. C. McCroskey of Garfield has sent
a subscription to the fund and writes :
Convinced of Value.
"The recent experience of the wlieuj
raisers of the northwest in endeavorin'?':
to get their rights in the matter of price
fixing convinces me that the advantage
of having representatives at all times in
the. capita! will secure to us annually
more than the co^ of such a temple."
President E. T. Coman of the Ex

Mr. Coman for his recent letter of in

Having been down to Wash

for the purpose of furthering the inter

'difficult it was for any one to accom

a few days or few weeks' time. This
is owing to a lack of information of the
and means to achieve results. If
the farmers' organizations of the country
could maintain a permanent headquarters
with representatives there who are fa
miliar with the details of legislation, and
familiar with the locations of the differ
ent departments, they could then call
down to Washington committees from
the different parts of the country who
could work promptly and effectively.
"My observation has been that the
members of congress are more willing
to render every possible assistance in
furthering any legitimate demand from
the farmers."

BOISE.—At a meeting of the ex
ecutive committee of the state defense
council, held in Boise, October 30,
1918, the following resolution was
unanimously adopted. This shows the
attitude of the executive committee
of the state council in regard to this
constitutional amendment:
"Whereas, the conditions affecting
our state, brought about by the great
war and its attendant sacrifices, were
not foreseen by the worthy members
of Idaho's last convened legislature,
who, in their wisdom and deliberate
council, properly proposed and had
placed before the people the question
of calling a state constitutional con
vention; and,
"Whereas, these unforeseen condi
tions have made mandatory the con
servation of all the mental and physi

of the people to the ena that this great

"Whereas, the great expense, time
and energy incidental to the calling
of a constitutional convention would
detract from the state's power to per
form its full duty in this great world
crisis; and,
"Whereas, this body is convinced
by representations made to it that
we are in harmony with the views
and will of our worthy legislators;
"Therefore, be it Resolved, that we,
the undersigned, members of tne
executive council of defense, most
respectfully call the attention of the
county councils of defense to this
question, and recommend that the
people be advised of the present ne

the resolution calling for a state con

Dr. E. H. Lindley, president of the
University of Idaho, strongly urged
students and instructors not to leave
Moscow for the week end.
He said: "I am receiving letters
from parents every day telling me
how glad they are that their sons and
daughters are here where the mor
tality rate is comparatively much
lower than other places.

moral right to endanger the health

George Buzzelle Wounded.
A Chicago paper published in the
Norkegian language, contains an ac-
count of the wounding of George Buz
zelle, formerly of Moscow, who left
here last summer. Mr. Buzzelle is
well and favorably known here. He
was a student in the high school and
operated the moving picture machine
in his father's show here. He was
wounded while fighting with the ma-
rines at Cambrai, on September 15,
just seven days after he landed in
France. He is recovering.
Mrs. J. W. McDonald arrived today
from Spokane to visit her daughter. Mrs.

Although football practice has
been indefinitely postponed because
of the epidemic of influenza here,
Lieutenant Meehan who is acting as
coach, is looking forward to a bril
liant season for the S. A. T. C. team».
Games have been scheduled at Spo
kane and Pullman. Lieutenant Mee
ban believes he has material enough
to build up an excellent sÂappy team,

Lieutenant Meehan who played on
the Gonzaga University team for
four years, is very optimistic over
the local material that has reported
for practice. Victor Pearson of Mos
cow and Leon Perrine of Nez Perce
show good football stuff. Ralph M.
Barry, Of Buhl, is said to have won
derful speed. Lieutenant Meehan ex
pects to use him in the backfield.
Barry had four years experience on
the Kansas State Normal team.
A. Fox of Nez Perce, Robert N. Irv
ing of Rupert and Boyde Cornelison
of Moscow are playing real football,
according to Lieutenant Meehan.
The line-up for the year has not
been definitely announced but it is
expected that Perrine and Fox will |
hold line positions and that Barry, j
Cornelison and Irving will take care |
of the backfield. Victor Pearson will |
probably be elected captain of the I
team, according to Lieutenant Mee- !
Health conditions make it impos
sible to determine just what the
schedule of games will be, but the
tentative schedule is as follows:
Gonzaga U. at Spokane, Nov. 9.
Gonzaga U. at Moscow, Nov. 16.
W. S. C. at Moscow, Nov. 23.
Marines at Spokane, Nov. 30.
All members of the students army
training corps were given influenza
masks this morning. They will be re
quired to wear masks whenever in
doors under penalty of courtmartial.
Only one mask was given to each
man instead of the three required by
government orders, because of the
difficulty in completing 2400 in three
days. Others are being made how
ever, and it is expected that all the
men will be supplied with his full
quota within two days.
Military regulations covering the
wearing of masks are very strict. The
masks must be worn whenever in
doors and they must be washed in
good soapy water every day.
fringement of these rules will be con
sidered a most serious offense.
Dr. E. H. Lindley, president of the
University of Idaho recommended
this morning that all instructors
wear masks while giving instruction.
He said:
"Every precaution is being taken
to keep the epidemic from spreading
and students and instructors are urg
ed to safeguard themselves in this
and every other way."
Work on the 2500 influenza masks
ordered by the federal government is
progressing rapidly, according to
Prof. R. E. Neidig, chairman of the
Red Cross. A Red Cross official said:
"The stringent requirements made
by the government debarring all per
sons from working on the masks un
less they were in first class physical
condition caused some hardship at
first. Volunteers have come forward
with wonderful spirit. The masks are
being rushed to the Inland Empire
hospital for sterilization as soon as

soon as a man complains of feeling ill,
whether it he a headache, cold or other
ailments, he is taken from the others and

is sent to the hospital.
At the big plant of the Idaho National
Harvester company where more than
120 men are now working as auto me

rigidly. Every man is instructed to re

illness and he is at once sent by automo

close care and attention. 1 It is believed
that this system of watchfulness is large
