Play at Walla Walla
Walla Walla. Arrangements have
been completed here for an 18-hole
exhibition match on Tuesday, August
21, at 2 o'clock P. M. with Archie
Compston and Audrey Boomer,
famous British golfing stars. The
exhibition holes are to be played on
the course of the Walla Walla
Country Club, which is sponsoring
the appearance of the two stars.
Compston, for several years a
moderately well-known links artist,
leaped into international fame almost
over night when he handed Walter
Hagen the worst drubbing ever given
any professional , of that caliber in
match playr They ended what was
to have been a 72-hole match, 18 up
and 17 to go, in Compston's favor.
Boomer is recognized as one of the
leading distance drivers in inter
national golf today and as such is
expected to be the center of attention
for those who are always seeking
longer flights for their drivers.

Athena Boy Scouts j
(By H. Wade LeRoy)
Plans are about complete for the
scout trek to Immigrant Springs. We
will leave Wednesday morning,
August 22, to be gone a week.
Twenty boys have already been list
ed for the trip, and there are a few
more who may also go. Each boy can
obtain from the officials the neces
sary' information as to clothing and
equipment, needed for the trip.
As this is to be a mounted hike, a
majority of the boys will ride their
horses. The few that are not going
to ride will go up with the supply
truck that will leave at the same
As the boys will be in camp over
Sunday, we would like to have as
many as possible of the parents, and
others interested, bring their picnic
lunches, and spend the day in camp.
At 2:30 in the afternoon, there will
be a short religious service, followed
by a program.
Now that harvest is about over,
and times are not quite so pressing
for scouts and officials, we can start
on our fall and winter program.
As this is the first issue containing
scout news, since the food sale for
the benefit of the scout fund, we wish
to extend a belated acknowledgement,
and thank all those whose efforts
made it a success. '
