YOUNG WOMEN ARE

MANY NEW STUDENTS HERE
FROM SOUTH IDAHO
According to statistics gathered by
Permeal French, dean of women at
the university, 110 girls have already
registered for work for the second
semester. The number will reach 200
before the week is over. Among these
are thirty new girl students, a re
markable increase.
Spokane and seven are from south
Idaho.
An unusual degree of interest is
'being displayed in the music course.
This is due partly to the entire re
organization of the department and
partly to the changes' in courses for
girls which will permit them to take
more music with their prescribed
-studies.
Many young women are also reg
istering for the commercial courses

ness life.

Five are from
during the past three months in the
way of academic work, in the judg
ment of Miss French. She attributes ;
this happy condition to the fact that j
rigid regulations have protected the j
students from the influenza and com- i
paratively few cases have been known.
She believes that other institutions
with less regard for strict quaran
Tine have had their work interrupted
much more seriously and have not
made anything like the progress in j
studies which Idaho has made.

EPIDEMIC STILL PREVALENT
Warning Issued Against Any Relaxa
tion of Vigilance.
The impression that influenza at
tacks only those in the prime of life
seems to be wholly without founda
tion if the experience and testimony
of most communities are worth any
thing, for it now appears that infants
and the aged are equally susceptible.
In a report issued December 20 of
last year, by the United States Public
Health Service, a warning is issued
emphasizing the danger of relaxing
precautions against the epidemic, "The
epidemic is not ended and such re
crudescences of cases and deaths as
are now occurring in many localities
may be expected to become more or
less general."
Surgean General Blue says, "I may
have been misunderstood but I thought
1 had emphasized the fact that not only
was the epidemic still present in many
parts of the country, but in a number
of places it Is even more prevalent
than it was in the early part of the
epidemic.'

WILLIAMS IS APPOINTED
Former Secretary of the President
Made Chief Clerk of Secretary
of State.
Bennett L. Williams, for several
years past the very efficient secretary
of President Bindley, has just received
notice of his appointment to be chief
clerk under Secretary of State Robert
0. Jones, in Boise.
Mr. Williams and Mr. Jones were
fraternity brothers in college here,
both being members of the Beta Theta
Pi fraternity, and they have been close
personal friends for many years.
Their association in Boise during the
next two years will be very agreeable
to both. Mr. Williams's training and
pleasing personality will be invaluable
to the new state secretary.
Mr. and Mrs. Williams will leave
Moscow on Thursday evening to take
up their residence for the next two
years, at least, in Boise. During their
stay here they have endeared them
selves to hosts of friends who will re
gret their going.

News from Khaki Boys
La Rochelle, France,
Dec. 12, 1918.
Dear Mr. Weber: Just in receipt
of your newsy and much appreciated
letter, so I am losing no time in
answering it.
Well I suppose every one at home
is pleased to have this war over, and
you can rest assured that all the boys
over here feel the same way. Now
the hard part comes of staying when
we know that the war is over and
practically all the danger is over.
Just merely building up this devastat
ed country now. However, I should
be quite contented as I entered with
the idea of devoting three years at
this business. I never looked forward
to such a sudden and complete ending
as we had. But putting a fair esti
mate on it I should judge that most
of uS in the motor transport corps
will be over here at least four months
longer;

ing him so strong that the sentiment
of the public is that he should pay his
debt to humanity with his life. You
will notice in the book I am sending
that the populace of Alsace and Lor
raine were glad to be restored to the
French rule, as demonstrated by the
entry of allied troops in the various
towns. My French is so poor that I
could not translate all of the illustra
tions.
I have a bunkie who lives in the
east, in fact somewhere in Rhode Is
land, and we have compared food
prices with our home town papers.
I'll admit that living is out of sight
in the west since the war, but those
poor devils must starve in the east.
Round steak 42c a pound, turkey $1.00
a pound, etc., so you can judge what
they have to contend with. Well there
must be a day of reckoning or final
checking up coming soon. There ap
pears to be more people riding around
in automobiles than ever and more
people kicking on the high cost of
living. I think the whole world is
merely living on the upper crust and
it is bound to break through soon.
In order to brush up on my ancient
history a little I bought a concise
French history and found that I was
living in the vicinity of places of re
nown since the time of Christ. But
what surprised me most was that this
country has been at war since the
time it was discovered,
seems to be the main occupation of
all foreign countries over here. And
inasmuch as they devote their life
work to it, as we in the States would
to a business, profession or trade, it
is little wonder that they jump at
the trivialist affair to exercise their
profession.
Well, there might be different sorts
of failures and hardships, but the old
Palouse country will always be top
notch in something, if nothing else
than beans. At least the farmer is
benefited by this war. Why the old
nickle-pinching tight-wads used to be
making big money when they could
get $1.00 a bushel for their grain and
now they are doubling that price. Ap
parently the best luck that could be
fall a young man now days is to be
a farmer's son.
I have found many of the buildings
you speak of where the cows live in
one end and the family in 'the other.
However, with all their unsanitary
conditions and lack of modem facili
ties the people seem to be quite con
tented and I dare say more healthful
than those of the States, as the Span
ish Flu originated over here in Spain
and swept this country and although
I did not read the obituaries, I be
lieve the death rate was far greater
in the States than here.
Here are some of the disgusting
things that take place over here:
Soldiering
Hundreds of acres are devoted to
grape raising and the chief civil oc
cupation is wine making. You can
always see huge two-wheeled carts
moving along with large barrels on. ,
They are either making barrels or
filling them. Their railroads are be
yond comparison. Not long ago I saw
a line of men packing wine in buckets
filling a large tank on a flat car which
evidently took them several days to
fill, as they would have to wait at
the bottom of the ladder for the man
on top to empty his pail and come
down. The demurrage on the car
would be more than the wine was
worth.
Each large house has its owit"^..
sewage system. They have a cess
pool under tne house and when this
fills up it is pumped out in tanks and
hauled off. The smaller homes drain
all sink water out in the streets. *A1!
buildings facing flush with the street.
The sidewalks, if any, are about
three feet wide in some places and
six inches in othens. Of course I am
speaking of this town, which is about'
40,000 popolation and very old. It is
here that the French Huguenots made
their last stand. They erected large
towers and other means of defense
but the enemy (whoever they were)
finally drove them out and they sailed
for America in the 16th century, some
of them landing in what is now the
state of New York, naming the place
after this town, but called it New
Rochelle. I find history a very in
teresting subject now that I can stand
on the ground that great heroes made
their name. However, I do not in
tend to tire you with any lectures on
the subject.
Yes, I have been getting the Post
quite regularly of late. And I pass
many lonesome moments reading it,
even to the advertisements, but what
struck me and in fact made me rather
blue is that some of the ads are new
to me and I can't recognize the own
ers. Of course I do not want to wish
Moscow any hard luck and see it stay
always the same, but ; t seems as if
will come back almost a total
t
stranger.
. Indeed, I am sorry to hear of Mrs.
tVeber's illness. The rheumatism is
most disagreeable ailment and many
of the boys are getting it fast over
here. The climate conditions are just
right for it. Wet all the time, and a
damp air, just what it needs to thrive
on. Well, Mr. Weber, I doubt if you
can make much sense out of this with
the many mistakes. But I'll take this
opportunity of thanking you person
ally for the papes, as it affords me
much pleasure and pastime. Again,
wishing you and your a Merry Xmas
and a Happy New Year, I am, with
regards to all,
A
