Money has been subscribed by the merchants of Palouse for the pur- chase of several tracts of ground: which are to be used as an athletic field. The property is near the high school property in the north part of ~own and will make an ideal athletic field. Some time ago Coach Ed Franzen brought the matter of purchasing a field of this kind before the business men at a chamber of commerce meet- ing and succeeded in interesting them to a sufficient extent that a commit- tee was appointed to Investigate the matter. This committee, after going over several proposed projects decided to buy several contiguous tracts in the north part of .town and make a field of them, A stock company was organized and money subscribed bY the merchants in town, who are to control the property until such a time as the athletic association shall have paid for the ground. The site was bought for $1200 and the high school boys are to repay the purchase price at the rate of $100 per year with in- terest at 6 per cent per annum.. It will then become the property of the h~gh school athletic association, but will be under the supervision of the board of education. The high school students have al- ready begun to devise ways to raise money with which to repay the loan of the merchants. The Bell theatre has promised to donate the use of tha theatre to the athletic association one night in the near future. The proceeds of the show are to go to- ward paying off the indebtedness ~[ the athletice field, The high school girls recently gave a e.~tn~ly sale which netted th~nn a nlce aura. ~,Vork Will be begun next Wednee- day putting the field in ~ ~w 'the game of football on Thanksgiving day with St. John.
