BANQUET FOOTBALL BOYS
Domestic Science Class Girls To Ser

SPEECHES AND 1913 ELECTION
Members of the high school domes
tic science class are planning a big
banquet to be given some time in the
near future for the boys who com
prise the football eleven which won
the championship of Northern Min
nesota this fall.
The date of the event has not yet
been set, but will likely be held dur
ing the next week.
Following the dinner speeches will
be made by the superintendent
coach, teachers who will be invited
to attend and the football warriors.
It is also probable that a captain
will be elected to lead the 1913 team,
and who will succeed Earl Bailey,
who has so successfully led the elev
en of 1912 to victory.
The folowing comprise the team
Bailey, captain and quarterback
Lycan, fullback Peck, Stanton, Ry
an and Hayner, halves Elletson Gra
ham and Wright, ends Olson and
Ackenback, tackles Johnson and Ti
tus, guards Sullivan, centre.
Superintendent Dyer and Profes
sor Carson are giving the banquet,
and in speaking of th event Mr. Car
son, coach of the team, said today:
"Mr. Dyer and myself feel that the
boys are entitled to this banquet in
payment for the time and earnest
endeavor they have displayed during
the football season. To win the
championship the boys have had to
work hard and faithfully thorugh
out the entire season. The banquet
will be the last football function of
the year, and will also be the last
time the boys will be together as a
football team, Bailey, Ackenback
and Stanton having played their last
game for Bemidji High. The team
will suffer sever loss by the gradua
tion of these three men. Captain
Bailey has"mailed good field gner~
al, and carries the ball cleverly, Ack
enback played a great defensive
game at tackle, and his position will
be hard to fill next year. Stanton
although not out for football at the
beginning of the season clearly
cinched a birth on the team soon
after his appearance. He plays a
strong offensive and defensive game.
"There is some good material for
the team of next year and every pos
sible effort will be made to retain
the championship of the northern

RESCUED BT MEN IN ROW BOAT
A. A. Andrews and wife were about
to take a farewell spin in their
launch Thursday, and when they
reached *the lake shore they found
the ice had formed in a thin layer
over that portion of the lake near
the boat house.
It was an easy matter to break the
ice with an oar and they ventured to
take the trip. When they reached
beyond the center of the "iceberg",
was taking water rapidly. They
called for help and started to pull
back toward the landing. Two
men in a row boat reached
them just in time and the occupants
were transferred into the row boat
and the launch was towed back to
the boat house where it immediat
ly went to the bottom.
Investigation found that two large
holes were cut into either side of the
boat, caused by the sharp ice. "That's
as near to a real cold plunge as I
want to get", said Mr. Andrews, in
speaking of the affair.
