HIGH SCHOOL BOYS SHOW PEP IN PREPARING FIELD Working Hard to Prepare an Arena in Wlfich to Hold Games With Rival Schools. Coach Frenzen's boys may be slow .it football, but judging from the transformation they have made in the new athletic field the young fel- lows are workers, for they have ac- complished wonders in the way of clearing off and grading the grounds they are preparing for an athletci field. Trees have been. uprooted, houses moved and tons llpon tons of dirt taken from the hillside and car- ried down and deposited in gullies and holes in the field. The boys have undertaken a big job. but they are going at it as though it were fun. They are handicapped by lack of :~orsq power, being only ableto se- cure from 12 to 16 head of horses. It :s hope:l that next week the farmers will be through seeding and able to spare more horseflesh to loan the high school boys. Joe Franzen. father of Coach Fran- zen. is on the ground supervising the work. and under his direction the ')oys ore making a nyce jol) of it. Mr. Kent's house has been moved to a vacant lot across from the high school and the Lucas house still ::tands. but will be either moved or torn down in a few days. Engineer CDwles very kindly sent a part of his crew up to the field to survey the ground and give the boys a grade which will enable them to systematize the work. The boys hope to have it-completed in time to ad- minister a drubbing to St. John such as they themselves have suffered from various schools in the last few weeks. The St. John-Palouse game will oc- cur on Thanksgiving day and if thu boys put the pep into the game that they are putting into the 'new field St. John is doomed to a thorough trouncing. Be this as it may we will have to give it to the boys for their ef- forts to make a good athletic field. Mrs. Dudley Is Hostess. The Round Table club was enter- taPned at the home of Mrs. J. B.
