The guests began to arrive early.
The first were those from Lewiston,
Genesee, and Troy, who came by auto
î >bile, reaching Moscow about 9
o'clock. They were taken to the
Hotel Moscow where they registered

reception committee and looked after
the arriving delegates.
A number of the early arrivals were
taken to the University of Idaho to

appointment of committees followed.
Then George F. Weeks of Coeur
d'Alene was introduced and delivered
a brief historical address on what has
been accomplished in northern Idaho.
He was followed by William J. Hall,
state commisioner of public works,
who gave much valued information on
what the state plans in the way of
road building. His address was filled
with interesting facts in regard to
highway building in the state and he
told, in detail, giving figures to show
how vast is the program mapped out
for the work in this state.
Eugene Cox of Lewiston, who was
on the program for an address on
"Cooperation of Highway District,"
was not present and Senator F. S.
Randall spoke in his stead, giving
some very interesting information.
Jerome J. Day, president of the Ida
ho Mining Assoeaition, who was on
the afternoon program, is enroute here
from Washington, D. C., and could not
be present. I. N. Smith of Wallace,
formerly a resident of Moscow, took

There was a good attendance at the
weekly luncheon of the chamber of
commerce Thursday, the tables being
filled and much interest was manifest
ed. The chamber had appointed com
mittees to prepare for the meeting of
North Idaho Chambers of Commerce
here today and tomorrow and the com
mittees reported everything in read
iness and the people having respond
ed to the call for rooms for the vis
itors. The question of the boy scouts
was taken up and the cpmmittee on
this matter filed the following report:
Gentlemen: Your committee met
and carefully considered the report
and budget of Scoutmaster F. D. Haw
ley. The scoutmaster has a very
comprehensive plan for the develop
ment of scouting here, and we most
heartily endorse thé Boy Scout Move- !
ment in Moscow. ,
We find that scouting throughly!»
cultivates a long neglected field; that
it is a most necessary adjunct to I
! distributed, that the scouts sold near
ly $80,000 worth of government bonds
and war stamps, and thus realize the
I patriotic service of which our boys
are capable. Each scout tried to do;
( at least one good turn each day, which
means over 10,000 kindly acts in a]
-, year. In their scout work, many of
the boys have learned cooking, bridge]
i building, advanced first aid, swim
j ming, woodcraft, map making, sig
nailing, and dozens of other useful
things not usually taught. The spirit
of scouting, which teaches a boy to be
trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly,
.courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful,
thrifty, 'brave, clean and reverent,
should be instilled into every boy in
the nation.
We recommend that the chamber of i
commerce, as the sponser body for the ;
Boy Scouts of Moscow, approve of
the raising of the small budget_ask-]
ed, and that the president appoint a,
committee to take charge of thé cam- j
essary, to elect necessary officers, to
appoint solicitors, and to supervise the ;
disbursement of the funds. We sug- |

For several days there have been
rumors in circulation in Moscow that
two prominent men had been arrest
ed for criminal intimacy with a girl
of tender years. The rumors varied
as they were repeated, from the sim
ple statement that these men (their
names were always used) been
charged with this offense, to the
statement that warrants for their ar
rest had been issued and later this
grew into the statement that they
had "compromised the case for $500,"
The matter culminated in The Star
Mirror receiving a letter addressed to
contribution box" signed by a
Moscow woman, and in which she
charged The Star-Mirror with sup
pressing the facts and shielding these
men (using their full names in the
letter) and saying she had shown
this letter to "more than 200 citizens
today and it has met with their ap
proval and we will see if it is pub
lished or shall our girls of from 12
to 16 years of age continue to be
For the benefit of this woman who
has peddled this letter to "over 200
citizens" we will say that had she
taken the steps The Star-Mirror took
when the rumors were first started,
she would have learned their utter
falsity and it would have been far
easier than to take the letter to 200
different persons.
The Star-Mirror editor heard the
rumors more than a week ago. This
paper does not publish rumors about
anything and especially about peo
ple who are responsible citizens, have
families and, so far as we know, are
leading respectable lives. There is

The Star-Mirror is in receipt of the
following article from the Daily Ex
press of Kirksville, Mo., about a for- j
mer law student of the University of
Idaho, who was evidently well known j
in Moscow some time ago. The clip
ping came with a request that it be
published. The story follows:
Wilbur Bohm, an A. S. O. student,
is to take part in the Centrall Athletic
Association meet in Iowa next week,
"«to tT.SrSr.lU 0
The Journal of Osteopathy has the
following item concerning Bohm and
the work he has done in track meets:
W .H. S. Bohm of Edwardsville,
Ill., is a student in the American
School of Osteopathy, who made
quite a mark last spring at the Mis
souri Valley Conference track meet,
when he entered as the only repre
sentative of the A. S. O. and put this
school on a par with Kansas Univer
sity for third place. He won first
in both the discuss throw and the
shot-put. He also tied in that meet,
with Scholz of Missouri as second I
highest individual point winner. I
He plans to represent the A. S. O.
in the same conference this year at
Ames, Iowa, May 1, and also in the
Western conference at Chicago, June
7th. • •
Bohm has attended a number of
schools and in all of them has shone
in an athletic way. He was in the
St. Charles Military Academy at St.
Charles, Mo., in 1910 and 1911 and
in the Missouri Military academy at
Mexico, Mo., in 1912. He was on the
basketball, baseball and track teams
all this time.
In 1913 he graduated from Castle
Heights school at Lebanon, Tenn.
Here he played guard and tackle on
the football team, center in basket
ball and in the track team handled
the hammer, shot and discus.
The next fall he played football on
the athletic club at Edwardsville, Ill.,
but later had tyhoid fever and was
knocked out of athletics for two
He went west for his health and
started to study law in the Universi
ty of Idaho at Moscow. His digest
ion was shot to pieces and he was in
bad shape generally, so that he could
not play football that fall. In some
way he got in touch with Dr. W. M.
Hatfield, osteopath of Moscow, who
brought him back to health. In the
spring he was on the University track
team, and gave a good account of
himself in the Pacific Northwest
Osteopathy had restored him so
thoroughly that he was junior nat
tional champion in the discuss throw
in 1917.
Altogether, it is not sträng that
he has given up the idea of being a
lawyer and is bending his energies
toward making of himself the best
possible osteopath.
