Entertain at Candy Pull.
The pupils of the high school en
tertained their teacher, Prof. Swails,
and Misses Bishop and Moss, the
grade teachers, also Miss Iliff, at a
candy pull at the home of Mrs. Ket
telson last Friday evening. Musical
selections furnished the first part of
the evening's entertainment, while
games, stunts and other merry pro
ceedings helped pass the evening.
There was a rush when the candy
reached the correct stage, and every
one seemed willing to be hastily
served. If it was slightly too warm no
one objected, but all did their best to
enter the list with those who had the
knack of pulling. Prof. Swails claim
he must taste all of a different color
to distinguish as to which was the
best. Some of the boys succeeded in
being served twice. We wondered
what became of the first portion. A
number of the girls had theirs taken
away, and had also to be served twice.
The candy was a snowy mass when at
its best and proved to be delicious,
but even so there was considerable
chance of getting rather stuck up if
one wasn't careful. After the pull
was ended it was decided to have a
class photo in which Grace Cohoes and
Eva Carter were the principel actors.
Should the film be properly developed
we feel sure the picture would be a
credit to the school even though it
was taken in an unusual manner. Ev
ery one enjoyed the evening.
The Band Boys Are Busy.
Yes, it's been going on for some
time something new, unusual and un
deniably entertaining, if one is not
too particular as to the kind of en
tertainment. The explanation is sim
ple. The newly organized band boys
have received their new instruments,
and say, you can't help but hear them,
you know they simply have to learn
how to make a noise, and therefore
you can hear them at most any of thesided
hanging out places, and better still at
all hours of the night. We feel sure
there'll be one bandmaster who will
have no trouble in getting the noise
started. So far it's been difficult to
distinguish as to the kind of an in
strument, but later on no doubt we
will learn the name by the looks. The
first lesson is likely to be this week,
so in all probability we'll soon have
some music. We know they have the
Thieves Break Into Store.
Thieves broke into the Stendahl
store and the office of the Rudd Lum
ber Co. Friday evening. Nothing of
value has so far been missed, but it
would be hard to estimate just how
much was taken in the merchandise
store. Should the culprits be detect
ed they should suffer the penalty of
the law.

The proverb goes, "A new broom
sweeps clean," but the pupils seem to
he disproving it as they are working
with the same amount of energy they
showed the first week of school.
The upper grades have lost another
schoolmate, as Grace Brown has
moved to the country. Grace was
with us just a year, but we learned
to like her very much and we shall
miss her.
Miss Bishop: "What color are the
cows in Holland?"
Gordon: "Black and white."
Miss B.: "What do they wear?"
Arthur (thinking of the people):
"Wooden shoes."
The upper grades have grown to 35
pupils an increase of about ten over
last year. Some seats were moved up
from downstairs to take care of the
extra pupils.
We have heard rumors that our
janitress, Mrs. Newham, intends to
leave. If this is true we are indeed
unfortunate, for a better one never
lived. She has not slighted one thing
that would make for our comfort.
The upper grades have two new
schoolmates, Eileen Schumacher and
Eloise Ross. We know we will like
them and hope they will like us.
Miss Bishop is reading "Beaver
Stream Camp" to her pupils. Thus
they are learning much about fishing
and hunting in Newfoundland.
The lower grade people have en
joyed the merry-go-rounds very much,
though they seem to be rather frail.
Miss Nyquist, county nurse, has
finished examining the lower grades
and begun on the upper grades. She
gave the upper room a fine talk on
care of the teeth and good and bad
habits in general. Her talk did much
good, but the work of the county
nurse would amount to much more
if the parents will co-operate in in
structing their children against bad
habits and towards good ones.
Harold Erickson, Ruth Erickson,
Donald Ross, and Ruth Nelson are
new pupils in the high school.
The new books certainly make us
wash our hands oftener. We are held
responsible for every tear, finger
mark, or pencil mark.
The pupils in both rooms of the
grade building are kept comfortably
warm by the new stoves which were
installed before the term began.
The seventh grade wrote letters to
an invalid a short time ago and they
hope he enjoyed reading them as
much as they did writing them.
Dorothy Erickson and Irene Spen
cer won premiums on their aprons at
the Sherburne County fair. The
aprons were made as part of a lan

Congress and Good Roads:
Federal aid for road building as a
continuing policy of the government
has struck another obstacle in con
gress, but friends of the measure, re
lying upon acquiescence by the house
rules committee for clearing of the
way, look for it to he enacted by the
first of next month.
Considerable of the credit for the
hastening-of a favorable decision by
the conference committee comes to
Minnesota in the person of Charles M.
Babcock, state highway commissioner.
His representations to members of the
unemployment conference called by
President Harding, arid to members of
congress as well, had a perceptible ef
fect of infusing new life into the move
ment to put the government promptly
and definitely on record. Of still
greater influence, perhaps, was the
recommendation of the unemployment
conference in favor of federal ...aid.
Under the spur of the two urgings the
conference committee set busily to
work and took action:
Congress should not deiay unduly
the business of making clear its posi
tion on government partnership with
the several states in the building of
good roads. Some of the large state
projects, notably that of Minnesota,
indorsed by the people at the polls,
were predicated largely on an expec
tation that the government's recent
policy would be continued indefinitely.
Quite properly, the voters of this state
were led to believe that state expendi
tures from year to year would be sup
plemented with federal expenditures,
and that the program incorporated in
the good roads amendment of the state
constitution would thereby be brought
to completion much earlier than other
wise could "be the case.
There probably would not have been
any question of the government's go
ing on with the partnership had there
not arisen an entirely proper demand
for the utmost intelligent economy in

federal appropriations of any and till
kinds. If there Is any-formidable pro
test going .to Washington against tjie
congressional appropriation proposed,
it has not made itself audible to many
in this part of the country- Rather
the hope in this state has been that the
appropriaion might be larger than it
now promises to be$75,000^000 for
all the states. If the people of the
several states are willing to expend
great sums of money for road im
provementand many of them have
shown that they are so willingit is
not, likely that they will raise a hue
and cry against government aid, albeit
-they would have to pay_for that aid
in some form of revenue.
Through favorable^ action congress
will not only be able to simplify the
labor problem, but it will give a need
ed encouragement to the states in the
gound movement of making better
highways. The states themselves are
so postured financially that they can
be counted on to refrain from an over
zealous tackling of road improvement.

The Salvation Army.

truthful story:
The Salvation army's report of its
work during the fiscal year, which
ended September 20, constitutes a
splendid record of benevolence. It is
hard to see *how the United States
could get along without this organiza

During the twelve-months it dis
pensed charity on an amazing scale.
Beds were supplied at hotels and lodg

a half men and women. Christmas
dinners were supplied to nearly 300,-
000 families and, toys given to more
than 125,000 children thousands of
