Carrying Gas Tanks.
Nine out of every train wreck
firesand maybe a larger proportion
are caused by exploding gas tanks.
It is hard for a layamn to understand
why all roads do not use electric
lights since the equipment is not pro-
hibitive in cost.
War On Auto Speeders.
After seven Minneapolis people
-have been killed by reckless auto
'drivers, the police of Minneapolis
lave started a campaign and yester-
day caught six speeders in their
traps. Reckless driving on the city
streets has reached a point where it
is hardly safe to cross one on foot if
there is a car in sight. Minneapolis
people are not the only ones who
Heed protection from speeders.
Good Paper Like Banquet.
A well-conducted paper is like a
banquet, says an exchange. Every
siting is served up with a view to se-
lection Help yourself to what you
want and do not condemn the entire
spread because the pickles and onious
may be included If you do not relish
them, somebody may nd them pal-
atable. Be generous and broad
enough to select gracefully such read-
ing matter from a paper as will be
agreeable to your mental taste. You,
as an indhidual, are not compelled
to swallow everything We do not
"all think alike on every subject, and
It is a good thing, as it makes more
variety, and variety is the spice of
Reports from St. Paul where the
-official election returns are being
slowly received indicate that the
Dunn amendment and the amend-
ment providing for an increase in
the railroad gross earnings tax will
be carried. Returns on the other
amendments are not enough complete
to allow a forecast
Fifty-three counties have reported
to date and the total vote is 177,227
making a majority of 88,614. The
railroad amendment received 98,763
votes or o\er 10,000 more than a ma-
jority. It is believed that this in-
crease in taxation will bring the state
about $1,000,000 a year in added
revenue. In Hennepin county the
vote was light but returns from the
country districts indicate that more
attention was paid to the amend-
ments than in the cities.
Is Worth Real Money.
The following dispatch from Thief
Ri\er Falls tells how the "Univers-
ity Soo Special" is being received in
the towns it is visiting. In Bemidji
the train drew a good crowd but not
as large as those which had turned
out in other towns.
"Real farmers, men who have farm-
ed all their lives, came five, ten,
twenty miles and even further.
"They came on business and in a
serious frame of mind. There were
few smiles and little laughter.
"They crowded the lecture cars
and heard men trained to the job
suggest how they might make their
farms better paying businesses.
"When the time came to ask ques-
tions they asked pointed questions
and business-man questions.
"Not a man all day had any side
remarks to make about "pencil farm-
ers"the skepticism toward the col-
lege expert, which the agricultural
educators have in the past found
thjedr^ hardesj^foe, seems to be gone.
"Men "who have farmed sixty years
their bearded faces between
the shoulders of stalwart grandsons
and demanded figures on the profit
in raising corn fodder for cattle
and this on the "Wheat Line" in
"A thousand farmers are talking
new ideas and better business in
these towns today.
'Is this worth money to you a
bystander asked a man in a sheep-
skin-lined coat as the train pulled
out of Viking today.
'Well, of course, I'm a mighty
'Is It worth $5 to you?'
'Say, when I get to following up
some of them points it sure will be
worth a lot more than that.'
"The Warren Commercial club en-
tertained the educational train party
in elaborate fashion.
"The train will be in Orleans, Lan-
caster and Bronson, on the Winnipeg
line of the Soo, Thursday."
NORTH COUNTRY IS
(Continued from nrst page).
reports Wisconsin has a very strong,
fast team, playing straight football
for the most part, and depending
more upon its strength and power
than upon its polish or the variety or
deceptive quality of its attack. Op
posed to this will be a more varied
attack by Minnesota and the forma
tion plays for which the Gopher
coach is famous for devising. Had
Tollefson been allowed to remain on
the team the rooters are of an opin
ion that Minnesota would have
emerged victorious by a decisive
score Saturday His disqualification
in midseason and the necessity of
breaking in an almost new quarter
back has hindered Minnesota to some
extent, but from the inside of North
rop field comes word that Hayward
has been progressing in a \ery satis
factory manner Saturday though
will tell that story better than train
ing camp gossip filtered through fra
ternity houses and casual visitors.
If all that has been said of Wis
consin is true then the Badgers
should win Saturday by at least twen
ty-five points Juneau has had a col
lection of splendid veterans to start
work with and they have justified
much that has been said of them in
their preliminary games. Their splen
did showing though may have been
based more upon the weakness of
their opponents rather than their
own abilities. A strong team always
looks much stronger than it really is
when romping through a straw team.
No one, though, would be so foolish
as to say that Wisconsin is not pos
sessing the best team of recent years
this season, even when subjecting its
merits to the highest possible rate of
The Minnesota team though is not
one of weaklings. It is still green
beyond any question, but it is made
up of an unusually hard fighting lot
of players and followers of the mathem
roon and gold believe that Wiscon
sin will meet its first real test of the
year when it lines up against Minne
sota. Most of the Minnesota players
have been through some rather stiff
fights this year and there should be
little danger of stage fright or a
total absence of overconfidence.
In a measure Minnesota has all to
win and nothing to lose this season
in the Wisconsin game, and the fight
will probably be contested on that
basis. The rooters are sure to be
well satisfied no matter how the final
score may turn if it is a hard-fought
game, clean and played under the
commonly accepted rules of good
sportsmanship. There are several old
scores to be settled with those Madi
son folks and the Gophers have all
the necessary incentive to go in and
fight at top pitch from start to finish.
No matter who wins it is going to be
the greatest game played in the West
this year if the Wisconsin team
grades sixty per cent of the advance
President G. E. Vincent, Dr. H. L.
Williams, Professors E. G. Cheyney,
E. Freeman and Captaiin Paul To
bin were the headliners at a mass
meeting held in the chapel of the
college or agriculture at noon Wed
nesday. The gathering was arranged
to inspire enthusiasm for the game
Saturday and from the volume of
noise that resulted it seemed as
though the conclave was not in vain.
Dr. Vincent told the crowd, which
taxed the auditorium to its utmost,
that Minnesota would win a big vic
tory, no matter how the tide of bat
tle turned Saturday. He said the
team was a credit to the University
and the whole state and deserved the
support of all students. According
to the president, Dr. Williams has
said that the eleven is the best in
THE BEMIDJI DAILY PIONEEE
the history of the school as far as
spirit and unselfishness goes.
Dr. Williams refused to make any
prediction regarding the game but
took occasion to compliment the
Agricultural College for its part in
building the team. The coach then
lauded the work of Tobin, Hayward,
Aldworth and Robertson, the aggie
members of the squad. Tobin, like
his coach, refused to prognosticate,
but said the Gophers would do their
best to make a hearty meal on Badg
