IN SCHOOL FRIDAY NIGHT
One of Three Contests to Select Can-
didates for Annual Inter-
A declamatory contest will be
held at the High School building
Friday evening, for the purpose .of
selecting the local high school's
representatives for the annual con
test with the high schools of neigh
The pieces rendered will be of
both serious and humorous char
Those rendering humorous selec
tions will be Emil Engels, James
Knox, Walter Jones, Marjorie Knox.
Those rendering serious selections,
Elmer Hilliard, Grant Gill, Bertha
Malakowski, Anna Spain, Alfred
Neuman, Hiram Simons.
Three contests will be held by the
local students, before the final
speakers are chosen. The purpose
in this is to give the candidate the
practice of having spoken many
times in public, and the school will
therefore be better represented in
the final contest.
At the contest Friday evening the
three best speakers in each class
will be chosen, and after a few more
weeks of practice and rehearsal, an
other contest will be held at which
the two best speakers in each class
will be chosen. These will still
futther develop their powers as
elocutionists and at a later date the
best speakers will be chosen, one
rendering a humorous and the other
a serious selection..
It is especially important that
Bemidji be well represented in this
year's inter-high school contests, as
the contests will be held in Bemidji.
The Bemidji High School basket
ball team will play a game with the
Grand Rapids High School team, at
Grand Rapids, Saturday evening.
The local boys will line up as
follows: A. Neuman and Brenne
man, forwards E. Neuman, center
Larson and Morrison, guards
The locals have never played
Grand Rapids at basketball and do
not know how strong that team is
but they are going prepared to put
up the best game possible.
SUNDAY SCHOOL RALLY
WAS VERY SUCCESSFUL
R. F. Sulzer, District Superintendent of
Sabbath School Work, Delivered
The Sunday School rally at the
Presbyterian church, last evening
was one of the most successful
functions of that character ever held
in the city, and was the yery best
event which has yet been hem under
the auspices of the local Presby
terian Sabbath school.
The auditorium and lecture room
of the Presbyterian church were
connected by throwing open the
intervening doors, and the entire
combined floor space of the two
rooms was crowded, standing room
being at a premium when the rally
The evening's grogram began
with singing of several songs by
the members of the Sunday school,
after which Andrew Rood rendered
a splendid vocal solo, Rev. S. E. P.
White, pastor of the church, offer
MissDoraHanson sang a beautiful
solo, and was the recipient of much
Rev. R. F. Sulzer of Minneapolis,
district superintendent of Sabbath
school work for the Presbyterian
church in Minnesota and North
Dakota, was present and delivered
a fine address.
Rev. Sulzer was for many years
the synodical superintendent of Sun
day school work in Minnesota, and
has but recently added other terri
torry to his work, and is district
Because of his extended experience
in Sunday school work, Rev. Sulzer
is peculiarly fitted to address a
gathering like that of last evening,
and his remarks were full of helpful
suggestions. The speaker was at
his best, and his remarks were
punctuated with numorous anecdotes
of his personal experience.
Mr. Sulzer is held in the highest
esteem by the Sunday school work
ers of the state, and that he is popu
lar here was evinced by the most
hearty welcome accorded the gentle
man last evening.
At the conclusion of the address
by Rev. Sulzer, Miss Hattie Halde
man sang a solo.
Refreshments were served and a
general social good time was had
and at the conclusion of the meet-
ing all wended their way homeward,
feeling that the evening had been
well spent, and that the local Sun
day school, already crowded, would
be greatly augmented hereafter.
Concert Was Very Good/
The concert given last evening at
the city hall by the Eileen Maguire
company, under the auspices of
the Bemidji Fire Department, was
a splendid entertainment* and the
fair-sized crowd that was present
was well repaid, with an artistic
Miss Maguire possesses a superb
contralto voice, and her singing was
encored several times. She made a
decided hit with Bemidjans.
Miss Lucy Webling told some
quaint stories and acquitted herself
Mr. Walter McRaye was a splen
did entertainer, and his rendering of
Little Bateese" was one of the
daintiest and most humanizing bits
of stage work seen at the local
theater for some years.
The series of entertainments
being given under the auspices of
the fire department are of a high
order, and larger audiences should
attend, especially as the profits will'
be devoted to the tournament fund.
P. H. M'GARRY NURSING
Positive Assertion Made that "P. H.'
Is Being Urged for Ninth District
Is the Hon. H. McGarry of
Walker, representative in the leg
islature from the Sixty first dis
tric, harboring a congressional
"bee," and will he be induced to
oppose Congressman Lindberg as
a candidate for the republican nom
ination for congress from the Sixth
Congressional district? is a ques
tion which is answered in the af
firmative today by a friend of the
Pioneer, who asserts positively
P. H. McGARRY.
that Mr. McGarry has been ap
proached on the subject of oppos
ing Congressman Lindberg and
had been offered some very sub
stantial backing, should he con
sent to enter the race for congress
man in the Sixth district.
The Pioneer's informant stated
that Mr McGarry had taken rather
kindly to the suggestion and had
requested that he be "shown" the
strength of the support offered
him and that he was considering
the possibilities when told as to
the character of the support that
Whether Mr. McGarry will decide
to make the race against Con
gressman Lindberg or not is not
statea, but it is possible that he
may decide to become a candidate,
in which instance the Sixth district
will be the battle ground of one of
the most spectacular political con
tests ever pulled off in the state.
Bemidji people know Mr. McGarry
as a very efficient fighter and one
who usually gets what he goes after
and although he opposed Bemidji
successfully in the fight for the
location of the proposed sith state
normal school, he would have
many friends here who would wish
him every success in the congres

this has been a very busy week for
Bemidji, the attendance has been
Mr. Hulett is getting good hold
upon the hearts of the people. His

presentation of the divine side of

attend these services. We know if
you come once you will want to hear
the speaker again. Be on time.
