dleton public at 2:30 this afternoon
when Referee Fred Rennion blew the
whistle that started Pendleton and
Pasco high schools on their way In
the firswgame of the 1920 season. A
fair sixed crowd attended the game,
which was played at Itound-l p park.
The I'asco crew, a husky bunch of
boys averaging slightly better than
150 pounds, arrived in charge of
Coach Davis over the Northern Pa
cific this morning. Invis formerly
played at Whitman college and Is re
puted to have a good bunch of men.
It Is their first game of the year.
Pendleton went on the field slightly
the heavier team, as Coach Dick Han
ley has some pretty beefy material
with which to work. The local squad
has been showing a lot of improve-
jment In practice since Hanley arrived i Nelson
(to take charge three and a half weeksjMinkiewtu'
ago and It was predicted that they
would show up well this afternoon.
Between now and Thanksgiving
Pendleton high will have a game
nearly every Saturday and the local
fans are to get their fill of the grid

year wtll be held here. The two
