which has been held yearly: in the
Atnena UUi Park, will hereafter be

or sobools ot the ooonty" at Pendleton
Saturday,, snob arrangement was de
cided upon. 1
'The central looation of Pendleton
and transportation facilities' to the
towns of the West part of the ooonty
are toe reasons given for the change,

and aa provided in obanging the meet
log place, the schools of that oity will
not be represented at future meets.
Oonoerniog the obange, the East
Oregonian says: '-
Hereafter the- annual high aohool
traok meet will be held in Pendleton
instead of Athena and the oontest will
be open to the atbletea of all the high
schools in the county exoept the Pen

oisioo reaohed Saturday afternoon at
the meeting of the executive commit
tee of the Umatilla County Athletlo
and Oratorical assooiation in this city.
The setting of the meet in Pendleton
instead of Athena was decided noon
because of the mora central looation
of the oity. Eeretofore the west end
sohools have not been represented at
the meet beoaose of the heavy expense
but hereafter will send teams to try
for honors.
' The withdrawal of Pendleton from
the traok meet was taken because of
the fact that the local sohool is much
larger than any of the other sohools
and tnrna out a muoh better balanced
team, one that easily wins the meet,
thus lessening elements of competition.
I he looal sohool concurred in the aotj

in tba Western Tri State league, the

He Favors WiisbnY Policy,
But Nevertheless Would Pre
pare for Probable War.
1 A Salem speoial saysi Although be
favors the Wilson polioy of "watohful
waiting," Governor West, who re
turned today from a trip East, de
clared that, in his opinion, war witb
Mexioo oonld not be averted. On his
way home the Governor crossed the
line ioto Juarez and made a cursory
examination of conditions there and
at other points on the border. . :
. "The Amerioan troops, while ia
sympathy witb the policy of the Ad
ministration are ready ' for aotion,
and I believe they think it ultimately
wjll . be neoessary," continued - tbe
Governor. "It would ' be no trouble
to win tbe fight, at tbe Mexicans seem
to be an inefficient people, ; but the
policing of the country and tbe estab
lishment of government would be a
hard proposition. . .
"Believing that war with Mexico is
inevitable, I shall advooate plaoiog
the National Guard ot our statu on tbe
best possible basis to he ready for the
emergency. Oregon probably . would
be Called upon to furnish troops and
we should be ready to do so." v
The Governor said that In the event

While not desiring to change tbe
subject, bntforthe benefit of a few
who may be wiought up over tbe pro
position, yon might say for me that
