SENIOR GLASS PLAY TO BE GIVEN TONIGHT SHAKESPEARE'S "AS YOU LIKE IT" TO BE PRESENTED "UNDER THE WILLOWS" Shakespeare's great play, "As You Like It" will be given by the senior class of the University of Idaho, in the "Theatre-Under-the-Willows," be ginning at 8 o'clock tonight. Should the weather be unfavorabale it will be presented in the auditorium. The play will be presented under the di rection of Professor George M. Mill er, head of the English department, which is an assurance that it will be of a high order. The class has made the following statement' in regard to its play tonight: (No automobiles will be admitted on the campus, though they may come as far as the tennis courts on Blake avenue.) The seniors of the University of Idaho propose to show that the class qf 1919 can equal the record of the class of 1918 in the entertainment it will offer tonight. This year's class recognizes that the remarkably suc cessful performance of "Midsummer Night's Dream" last year set them a standard hard to reach. The class of 1919 has had many difficulties to overcome this year, but their chief difficulty is the smallness of their numbers, due to the war. This makes the financial demands of senior year especially heavy, but the class through out the year has merely tightened its belts and fought harder for every thing good a senior class is called up on to do. It proposes, therefore, to make certain that later classes shall follow the precedent set by last year's class, and will give its commence ment play free to the whole commun ity—University, city and visitors. Smallness in numbers has made every member of the class work to perfect the play, and their guests Monday night may know that they are seeing the results of the coopera tion of every member of the class. Their play is one of the best comedies and outdoor plays ever written, Shake speare's "As You Like It. dramatization of the spirit of youth, of romance, of the free, open out doors. For three hundred years it has held the stage as one of the most popular of Shakespeare's plays. The cast chosen will show again, so the coaches predict, that a senior class always has enough people of imagination and intelligence to give a performance satisfactory to them selves and delightful to their friends. "As You Like It" this year will, as It is a always, give what everybody will like. The heroines are charming, the lov ers are gallant, the fools are funny, the clowns are Shakespeare's. Not the least attractive phase of the per formance will be the elaborate Eliz abethen costumes, a number of them made new for this special perform ance by the costumer. The unusual but beautiful setting on the new out 5 door stage erected under the Williows on the Campus by the faculty will give just the right background for "As You Like It. that all their friends will come and that the public wll be able to say again that we do not need to go out side our own community for good en tertainment. The class hopes The Show is Free. The management wants to impress upon the people that there is no ad mission and that the show is entirely free. It has been suggested that the people wear wraps, or bring wraps with them to be worn in case the eve ning should be cool. The show Will positively be given, regardless of weather conditions. Should it rain the show will be given in the audi torium. Wraps and robes to spread on the grass should be brought by those preferring to sit that way, but chairs will be provided for all who wish them.

He is a Hereford, out of a prize winning strain on both sides. His sire was Prime Lad, 11th, and his dam was Bright Hope, bred by the late J. A. Splawn of Yakima, a cow that has never been beaten in the show rings of the northwest. A half brother of this bull, shown as a steer at Chicago, in 1916, won the grand champion over all fat steers shown at the international. He was fed, prepared and exhibited by the University of California. The new bull was bought by the University of Idaho at an auction sale in March, and reached Moscow today in charge of a senior student of the animal husbandry department. Although thin in flesh he weighs a ton He is five years old and will take the place of University Don, recently sold by the university at a record price to head the Hereford herd of the A. B. Cook Stock Farm at Townsend, Mont. P. H. Lefrenz, superintendent of the Sandpoint substation of the ag ricultural college of the University of Idaho, left here last night with 23 head of purebred Shropshire sheep which will be used as the foundation flock for the substation at Sandpoint. The flock is an unusually good one, being composed of prize Winning in dividuals, bred by the University of Idaho animal husbandry department. The foundation flock was composed of very fine individuals, imported from England and for several years only imported English rams were used. They are prolific breeders, nearly every ewe bringing twin lambs this year. The group sent to Sand point consists of 10 ewes, over one year old; four yearlings, eight ewe lambs and three ram lambs. They went oût by freight last night. A group of five ewes and 10 lambs were held by the university as a nucleus from which to build up an other flock of Shropshires. E. J. Fjeldsted, field agricultural husbandman for the Oregon Agricul tural College, spent Saturday and Sunday at the University of Idaho, in specting the livestock. Mr. Fjeldsted is a graduate of the University of Idaho department of animal husban dry, class of 1916. JULIAETTA NAS A NIG CONVENTION COMMUNITY SUNDAY SCHOOLS MEET IN NATURAL GROV E NEAR THAT PLACE j JULIAETTA ral grove Sunday a community meet ing of Sunday schools of the Potlatch section gave an interesting program consisting of drills, songs, choruses, recitations, etc. In the afternoon E. C. Knapp, secretary of the Inland Em pire Sunday School association de livered a fine address and another in the United Brethren church in the -In the Juliaetta natu evening. There were 18 Sunday schools rep resented, and an attendance of at least 500 people. It was decided to make this an annual event on the second Sunday of June. T. O. Green last week sold a small cottage residence property to Crayton Biddison for $800. Mr. Biddison in turn sold his own residence property to Gordon Penland for $260. Earl Z. Cram who has been princi ple of the Juliaetta high school for two years and who had been reelect ed to the same position for the coming year has resigned in order that he may accept a more remunerative position with the R. C; Beach company of Lewiston. Here is another instance of commercial life outbidding offer ings made for work in educational lines. In mercantile life salaries con tinue throughout the year, while schools as a rule pay for only nine months' work. So many teachers are leaving the profession, especially men, because of higher salaries in commer cial life, that our schools are suffer ing a real loss. To find a man now adays teaching in a rural school is about as rare as gold is handed out of banks in cashing checks. It is not the fault of the men but the fault lies with the system of education which should be remodeled. POSSIBLE AEROPLANE FLIGHT PORTLAND TO MOSCOW Congressman Burton L. French of Idaho has suggested to the war de partment arranging for a government plane to fly at Moscow at its big home coming celebration on July 3, 4 and 5, that it consider the possi bility of having the plane fly from Portland up the Columbia and Snake rivers to Moscow instead of shipping the same by freight, the matter is now under consideration by the air service.
