ot Washington last year; QUy Qal

Washington and Idaho last year- his
brother. "Abo." mile runner Tom

Hank Lyman, who won the halt mile

and Will Toner, high jumper. The

In the track team two years ago are
back again, and will give n good ac
count of themselves In the sprints and

Idaho, In the hurdles.
The new quarter-mile track will be
scrajied and leveled off .is soon as
tho ground dries up sufficiently.
Captain Urown has had his men
out on the diamond several times and
the nucleus of a first-rate team Is al
teady evident. Of last year's team
there are left Captain Urown, catch
er; Robert Ringer, right fielder; Tom
Dutcher, who was one of the best
amateurs an third In tho Inland Em-
pile last year; perringer, center field. I
and Walter Brown, left field. Good
new material is plentiful. Among the
best are: Louis Sutherland, of the
Walla Walla high school, and C. D.
Bralnard. of Salt l.ake City. Pitch
ing talent is a little short and Whit
man feels the loss of her great "south

thinks that he can work up Dutcher
and Graham to twirl In nioper form,
nnd he may himself go into the box

Both the boys' and girls glee clubs

The boys glee club, which
numbers 12. will not take a trip away
trom home this year, but the two
clubs will give a big home concert in
Walla Walla about the middle of
April. This combined concert is a
iicw feature but a splendid program
Is being worked up and the concert
promises to be a great success.
At the monthly literary meeting of
the Whitman college Greek club this
week, two Walla Walla men read pi

Congregational church, gave a most
rcholarly nnd interesting discourse of
"Paul and the Stoics," v.-hlle Prof.

meeting of the club In April several
student members will read papers.

UNDERMINED BY WORMS.
Foundations of Milwaukee Business
Houses Damaged by a Singular Insect.
".Milwaukee buildings are being im
periled by a worm eating away the
foundations and there appears no way
of preventing It," said Raleigh T.
Jacobs, of the western city, to a
Washington Star man recently. "The
cltv building officials are much work
ed up over the effects of the worm,
which is known to science as the
limuoria. The attention of the build
ing department has been culled to the
sinking of buildings and tho bulging
of walls on business blocks, and In
many Instances It has been necessary
to brace the buildings with heavy
heams to keep them from falling.
"The old buildings, mostly of brick,
v'hleli line the sides of the river In
Milwaukee were built upon what
builders call floating foundations.
First a layer ot railroad ties was laid
nnd the stone foundation was placed
on them. It Is on these ties the
worms are apparently at work. The
worm Moats along the surface of the
water, and when tho water recedes
the worm it left stuck to tho docks
and walls, it works its way instiie
t the foundation nnd bores continuous
I ly, so It can very easily be seen the
j amount of damage that can bo done.
