DOES MORE FOR
YOUR MONEY THAN
ANY SHOP IN TOWN
Nobody can do better repairing, or
keep shoes cleaner, than I can. Most
people are wise enough to know that
money saved, is money earned. When
you bring your repair work to me,
you will realize the economy of the
best. My prices are reasonable. I’ll
make your shoes last longer than the
other fellow, and they will look better,

In the last number of the Review of
Reviews, an article appeared over the
signature of Professor Joseph Scha
fer, of the History department of tire
University, entitled, “Who Should Go
to College and Why.”
In this treatise, which was given
last spring as an assembly address,
Professor Schafer recounts how,
while visiting a State University that
is considered the best of its kind in
the world, the faculty of that institu
tion voted to allow four credits on
vocational work to count towards the
sixteen required for matriculation.
This shows that the back of college
traditionalism has been broken, and
colleges in the future will recognize
more and more the educational value
of such vocational subjects as are
taught in the High Schools.
It is Dr. Schafer’s opinion that
preparatory schools, in offering man
ual and industrial training, will ex
pand this department, until the school
will be virtually a collection of
schools, or courses in arts and
sciences, home economics, commerce
The author holds that colleges
should, and in time will, be more ac
cessible to those who are obliged to
obtain their education from practical
experience and from home study. The
student, to maltriculate, should have
to pass an examination for the pur
pose of showing his peculiar mental
In conclusion, Professor Schafer
says that in order to raise the stand
ard of efficiency in college graduates,
the state should offer, in its High
School curricula, instruction to the
student in subjects to which he is

“NO BASKET BALL COACH”
SAYS MANAGER ZEDNICK
UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON.
Oct. 15.—There will be no basket ball
coach at Washington this year, ac
cording to Victor Zednick, graduate
manager of athletics.
Continuing, he said, “Tha team has
gotten along pretty well the last two
years with captains coaching. We
can’t afford so many coaches. When
I was first elected four years ago we
paid only $1,000 for coaching. This
year we are paying more than $6,000.
The associated students can’t stand
for any more.”
PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 9.—Mike
Murphy, the famous athletic trainer

legiate championships next year. The
only serious drawback is the absence

COLLEGES ARE WARY OF
O. A. C. FLAYER’S ELIGIBILITY
"Kick off the big chief!” is the gist
of a number of newspaper articles
throughout the Northwest in speak
ing of “Amy” Hauser, the dark de
mon, playing fullback on the O. A. C.
eleven. J. S. Bain, in the Spokane
paper, alludes to Hauser as a “ring
er,” claiming that he has played foot
ball with the Haskell and Carlisle In
dians for the last twelve years. The
Oregonian comes back with un an
swer, claiming, that the man Bain is
speaking of is not “Amy” Hauser,
but his brother, Fete, who was assist
ant coach at Carlisle last year.

Only six girls have called on Mrs.

assistance in procuring work, and
each one of these was immediately
placed in a position.
In speaking of her assistance to
the girls, Mrs. Fletcher said, “Al
though 1 have had a great many calls
from outside women who want girls
to help them, I have been able to
supply but six. There have been less
calls from the girls for aid in getting
employment this year than ever be
fore, and I am sure, if the girls
throughout the state knew that work
was so easily supplied, we would have
more girls here in college than we
