'Morning and Afternoon Sessions Held
in Strand Theater and High
School Auditorium.
School Children Assist in Presenting
a Very Interesting Public
Health Program.
Bright skies favored the county
health rally which was held here
Princeton last Friday. Mr. and Mrs.
Max Kruschke opened the Strand
theater for the morning session and
also kindly presented the film, "Take
No Chances," wfiich the association
had secured for this meeting. The
theater was comfortably filled with
the older members during the first
part of the morning program and was
literally packed when several ofthe
grades from the school arrived for
the presentation of the film.
Onamia, Milaca, Freer and Green
bush had representatives present and
all other sections of the county sent
expressions of good will.
As president of the Civic Better
ment club, Mrs Guy Caley in a few
well chosen words welcomed the visit
ing delegates and opened the morning
session. All the clergy in town re
sponded to the call for speakers. Each
took up some phase of the topic for
the day and ably proved that public
health work and other Red Cross ac
tivities are indeed applied Christiani
ty, both practical and constructive.
Mrs. Peter Schmidt with her spirit
ed piano playing enlivened the morn~
ing with several solos and with her
sympathetic running accompaniment
for the showing of the film.
A number of the town's people as
well as the delegates from out of

school dining room. A committee
from the Civic Betterment club served
hot coffee.
About one hundred were in atten

were unusually fine. Four numbers
were presented by the school children
under the direction of Miss Snyder.
A group of tiny first graders from
Miss Lilje'borg's room gavo a musical
tooth brush drill.
A second group from Miss Larson's
room stressed the needin musicof
the observance of health rules. The
group from Miss Klatt's room gave
an up-to-date adaptation of our child
hood's rhyme, "Ten Little Injuns." In
this case it was ten little germs who
were finally annihilated and "Then
there were none." Miss Geraghty's
and Miss Hill's fifth and sixth grades
composed the fourth group. They
proclaimed, through a Yankee Doodle
song, their ability to kce*p pace with
the general good health rules of the
The interest displayed throughout
the day by the school was most com
mendable. Pupils from the high
school occupied the gallery and sub
gallery during vacant class periods
all during the program.
Mr McChesney, Milaca's superin
tendent of schools, sang in his usual
inimitable style two solos. Mrs. Mc
Chesney accompanied him on the
piano, and his first song was further
enhanced by a violin obligato by Miss
Stokes of Milaca. Mr. 'Ames, our
high school coach, sang two splendid
solos. Mr. Ames also demonstrated his
ability as a chorus leader by leading
the audience during the singing of
several old fashioned songs. Our
faithful and talented Mrs. Benj Soule
played the accompaniments for Mr.
Ames' solos and the chorus singing.

portunity, while the county was so
well represented, to present the sub

'Lightning Strikes Armory.
Early Tuesday morning an electric
bolt descended upon the armory and
ripped the flagstaff to ^smithereens,
scattering it in pieces upon the ground.
The currenij passed through the roof,
bored small holes the basement
ceiling and temporarily incapacitated
the right arm of a young women
member of a religious cult who was
preparing breakfast. The armory was
occupied at the time by several hun
dred men and women of this cult, who
slept there, and it is indeed fortunate
that no greater injury resulted.
Former President of Princeton Village
Council Passes Away at the
Northwestern Hospital.
Henry^ A. Humphrey is no more.
He passed away las# Thursday after
a period of much suffering at the
Northwestern hospital. The cause of
death was an internal ailment.
Funeral services were conducted at
the Congregational church on Sunday
morning by Rev. Besselievre under the
auspices of the Odd Fellow and Re
bekah lodges and a large concourse of
people was in attendance at the
solemnities. The remains were taken
to Elk River by Undertaker George
Ross and from there shipped to Wood
bine, Iowa, for interment.
Henry A. Humphrey was born at
East Townsend, Ohio, on March 16,
1857. When a young man he worked
as brakeman and stationary engineer.
In 1891 he moved to Woodbine, Iowa,
and engaged in farming there, re
turning to Ohio two years later,
where he remained another two years
and went back to Woodbine. Later he
came to Minnesota and settled on a
farm Baldwin township, moving
into the village of Princeton in the
spring of 1918. His wife died the

Mrs. Brita Westling.
Mrs Brita Westling, an old settler
of Isanti county, died at her home in
Spring Vale on Thursday, October 20,
from ailments incumbent on old age.
Funeral services were conducted in
the Mission church, Wyanett, on Sun
day by Rev. Franklin and the inter
ment was the Mission cemetery at
Spring Vale. The obsequies were at
tended by many relatives and friends
of deceased The pallbearers w^re all

Mrs Westling was born on March
29, 1820, in Ripwik, Sweden, and was
married there on March 11, 1855. Her
husband came to America in May,
1870, and she followed the next year.
For a short time she and her husband
lived in Isanti and then settled on a

Civic Betterment Club Meets.
The Civic Betterment club met in
regular session in the high school au
ditorium on Tuesday afternoon with
the president, Mrs. Guy Caley, presid
ing. After the regular business ses
sion a program was put on under the
direction of Mrs. Fred Keith, the
chairman on Americanization. An
American flag was prominently dis
played and the program was opened
by t^e singing of "America."
The Declaration of Independence
and a few comments by noted men on
this wonderful document were read
by Mrs. J. F. Petterson.
Mrs. W. A. Gfrerer read an article
entitled, "AmericanismWhat is it?"
Mrs. Keith gave a specially pre
pared paper on, "A few of the Prob
lems of Americanization."
The meeting closed with the ringing
of the "Star Spangled Banner."
Interstate Commerce Commission Or-
ders Rates on Grain, Grain Prod-
ucts and Hay Reduced.
Agricultural Bloc Wins Out when Sen-
ate Passes Compromise Amend-
ment on Surtax Rates.
In a sweeping declaration the in
terstate commerce commission has or
dered freight rates on grain, grain
products and_ hay throughout the
western half of the United States re
duced by an average of approximate
ly 16 per cent. Notice was given the
carriers that the commission expected
the reduction to be put into effect im
mediately, at least not later than
November 20. This reduction is pre
liminary, the commission says, to a
cutting down of freight rates in the
east. In a separate opinion Commis
sioner M. W. Potter, while concurring
in the action of the commission, de
clared the railroads have no right to
insist upon maintaining present high
rates on the ground that wages are
high. "On the fact of things," said
Potter, "there is nothing in-the wage
situation to justify a rate level entire
ly abnormal and which is menacing,
the country's welfare." The rate re
ductions as analyzed, following pub
lication of the decision, will amount
to $40,000,000 a year. On wheat the
new rate would be two cents a bushel
lower than the present rate. The com
mission's order was that on wheat and
hay the rates should be reduced by
an amount equaling one-half the in
crease allowed by the commission in
July this year on the same commodi
ties. On coarse grains the reduction
was approximately 10 per cent.
America's "Watch on the RJjine" is
to end. Beginning almost at once our
army of occupation is by degrees to
be withdrawn from Germany. It is
planned to take away the first troops
from the Coblenz bridgehead within
the next two weeks. That means that
by Armistice day, the third anniver
sary of the cessation of hostilities with
Germany, the process of withdrawing
the United States force of 15,000 men
and 700 officers'will formally have
started. A considerable period will
probably elapse before the Stars and
Stripes are finajly hauled down. Al
though the administration has decided
to withdraw the army, there is appar
ently a feeling that at least the skele
ton of a United States force should be
left at the Rhine bridgehead for some
time to come. Germany is lo^ath to
see our boys leave the Rhine and the
conquering heroes hate to tear them
selves ,away from the friends they
have made there.
One of the crucial points of differ
ence in the pending tax bill was set
tled when the senate, by a vote of 54
to 13, adopted the compromise amend
ment of the agricultural bloc fixing 50
per cent as the maximum surtax rates
on incomes.
The body of the unknown American
jJ-% 'S-rv. Wt V.
hero of the world war who will be ^Stanley's residence, journeyed about
buried in Arlington on Armistice day
will arrive at Washington on Novem
ber 9. The body will arrive at Wash
ton on the United States steamship
Olympic. Under an escort the body
will be taken to the capitol and placed
in the center of the rotunda. There
it will he state on the catafalque
upon which rested the bodies of Presi
dents Lincoln, Garfield and McKinley.
On November 11, when President
Harding has taken his position im
mediately behind the caisson, the pro
cession, headed by General Pershing
with a staff of distinguished generals'
and admirals, will proceed to Arlington
In addressing the opening confer
ence of veterans' bureau officials Di-*
rector C. R. Forbes vehemently de
nounced the federal board, declaring
it directly responsible for exploitation
of former service men and scored dis
trict managers for culpable careless
ness in sending' men to situations
which have been condemned by, him.
He recommended as the only solution
of vocational training that soldiers be
sent to government universities.
Any attempt to inject the Japanese
immigration and land holding ques
tion into the international conference
on limitation of armaments will be
thwarted as a move to divert the con
clave from its purpose by the intro
duction of irrelevant discussion.
By a vote of 197 to 74 the house
passed a bill extending the emergency
tariff act to February, 1922.
An interesting sidelight in connec
tion with the unemployment confer
ence is the statement of contractors
in various branches of the building
trades w^io declare that it is impossi
ble for thenuto find steady, reliable em
ployes. A prominent Washington con
tractor is authority for the statement
that he has over fifty contracts for
houses upon which he cannot start
work because ef his inability to secure
reliable help. Men report for three *or
four days, demand topnotch salaries,
and thjn lay off until they exhaust
their earnings and whatever extension
of credit these earnings secure for
Must Serve Ninety ^Days in Jackson
County Jail, Supreme Court Re
fusing to Review Case. N
The United States supreme court
has refused to review the case of A.
C. Townley, convicted of .sedition in
Jackson county more than two-years
ago and, probably witlnn a week, he
will be cast kito a damp cell in that
county to expiate his crime. The pres
ident of the nonpartisan league is
lucky that he was not sentenced to
serve 90 years. In the**efusal of the
United States supreme court to re
view- Townley's case he and Gilbert,
who was jointly,convicted with* him,
have lost their "last ditch".fight.
Townley and Gilbert were indicted
in April, 1918, for conspiracy to vio-^
late the, state law against obstructing
enlistments in the United States army
for the wa~r with Gerra^iy^. This only
started the fight. Attorneys for the
indicted men filed a demurrer to the
indictment, alleging that no offense
against the law was shown. Judge E.
C. Dean overruled the demurrer, and
the attorneys then took an appeal to
the "state supreme court. That de
layed the case nearly year. The
court on May 2,1919, upheld the order
by Judge Dean and sent the case back
for trial. The trial opened in June.
The jury on July 12, 1919, found the
defendants guilty.. Their attorneys
asked a stay, and were given 60 days.
Further steps in the, case have been

poses a sentence of 90 days in jail,
but allows a 60 day stay for a motion
for new trial.

Campfires Are Kindled on the Banks
of the Rum and the Gypsies
Make Merry.
Tuesdayevening a riotous band 6f
gypsies and hobos gathered in the
-Woods on the banks of the. river for a
night's revel. Like all really up-to
date gypsies they traveled in cars The
company assembled in front of Ira
half a mile north on Main street and
then made its way into the woods on
the banks of the river.
It appeared that some of the clan
had made preparations for1
the party.
The woods were lighted by jack-o
lanterns and huge piles of brush had
been collected. The fires were soon
burning-brightry and the livelier mem
bers of the tribe led by*Joe Mossman
joined in a Teal Indian war dance. A
goodly stock of provisions had be'en
collected in the meantime and each
member armed with a roasting stick
proceeded to prepare his own supper.
Thete was no dearth of wieners, ap
ples, sandwiches, coffee or marsfemal
lows and no^one left those campfires
without a much satisfied feeling.
A real witch joined the party and
camped under the pine boughs by one'
of the fires. The more venturesome
members of the company visited her
corner and heard what the future holds
in store, for them.
Ail the clan gathered around the
last fire that was^feindled and conclud
ed their evening's party with a few of
the old songs.
Although the gypsies may not ap
pear to be altogether courteous, they
are not an ungrateful people and no
member of the band left the camp
fires Tuesday night without thanking
their comrades. Wava and Leslie
Byers who had planned the whole af
fair and made all arrangements for
the party. It is hoped they will have
another meeting when the leaves fall
again next year.
Car Goes Into Ditch.

which necessitated his being taken to

Necessary, to Kill Both Horses and
Driver ef Car Sustains Severe
Injury to Leg.
The worst automobile accident
which has occurred hereabouts hap
pened on Saturday night on the road
between Ed. Saxon's and Mrs. Wil
helm's in Greenbush when an auto
mobile crashed head on into a team
attached to a wagon. The machine
was being driven by Fred Bowman,
who occupied it alone, and the team
by John Anderson, whose brother ac
companied him in the wagon.
The impact of the collision was of
such tremendous force that the pole
of the wagon was driven through the
radiator, the front seat and into the
cushion of the back seat. One horse's
back was broken, the other sustained
a fractured leg and the pole pierced
the right leg of the driver of the ear,
cutting it to the bone, while the driver
of the wagon was precipitated over the
top of the machine but sustained but
little injury. His brother escaped un
Dr. Wetter was called to the scene
and advised that the horses be killed,
which advice was folloVed, and Bow
man was taken to the Northwestern
Accident on Scenic Highway.
Last Thursday afternoon a fine new
Studebaker touring car capsized on the
Scenic highway about two miles-north
of Princeton. The car was from Cros
by, Minnesota. The occupants did not
appear to be seriously hurt although
they all had ben cut more or less
and were somewhat besmeared with
blood. The car did not Tseem to be
damaged except the top. It certainly
seems strange that such accidents oc
cur on a perfectly' smooth, open road.
The driver may have been traveling a
little too fast in the loose gravel
Railroad Strike Situation
The conference of the railroad labor
board, called to settle the threatened
strike, concluded last night without
effecting a settlement. Immediately
thereafter the leaders of the "Big
Five" announced that they would hold
a joint meeting with their executive
committees today (Thursday) to de
cide upon the next step_to be pursued
by them.
Members of the labor board still en
tertain hope that the strike will be
called off, but the situation at this time
looks ticklish.
Another Honor for Babcock.
Charles M. Babcock, state highway
commissioner, has been appointed
regional director of unemployment in
Minnesota. Mr. Babcock's plan to en
large the road building' program as
to partially relieve the present unem
ployment situation attracted much fa
vorable attention in Washington. His
appointment was made by Herbert
Hoover, secretary of commerce.
Mrs. Metta Harvey.
Mrs. Metta Harvey died last night
at the home of her mother, Mrs. E. F.
Griffith, in this village. The cause of
death was tuberculosis, from which
she had suffered for a long time. She
is survived by her mother, Mrs. Grif
fith, and one brother, George Wheeler,
of St. Paul. Further particulars will
appear in the next issue of the Union.
Dr. Cooney Goes to Convention.
Dr. H. C. Cooney left on Thursday
for Philadelphia to attend the annual
convention of the American Medical
association, the membership of which
is comprised of physicians and sur
geons. Dr. Cooney is admitted to be
one of the highest authorities on sur
gery in this state.

Peaceful People Whose 18
Live in Accordance-With the
Scriptural Teachings.,
Seven hundred peoplemen, women
and childrenmembers of a religious
cult from all parts of Minnesota and
a few ifem ether stales, arrived here
on Thursday to hold their annual con
vention, for which they had rented the
armory. They adjourned and returned
to their homes on Tuesday.
These people have no designated
name for their organization, but, in
an interview with one of the leading
members he stated that they merely
sought to follow the teachings of
Christ and used the bible for their
text book. Upon being asked whether
they were so-called "Holy Rollers*"
he saidqjhat there was nothing in their
text bookthe biblewhich called-for
rolling or anything of that sort, and
that it was foreign to their creed.
However, he stated, we do not mind
what people call us. We are peaceful,
conduct strictly scriptural services,
and we invite the public to attend our
meetings, express their opinions and
worship with us. Everyone is wel
Their stay with us proved that this
is true. They are peaceful people and
their services are strictly in conform
ance with the scriptures. Their minis
ters read the scriptures to the congre
gation, make explanation thereof, and
in their sermons adhere to gospel
truths. As to the hymnal selections
they were rendered in a creditable^.
These people do not inject con
demnatory remarks of any sort into
their sermons neither do they take up
collections. Their organization is
maintained by voluntary contributions
from members. They are a plain, un
assuming people, happy wrtheir belief,
and there is no reason why they should
not be, as true Christianity rests in an
endeavor to walk in the footsteps of
the Savior.
Should they decide to hold their an
nual convention in Princeton next year
they will be welcome. Not a word of
adverse criticism of this organization:
has been heard by the Union from any
Last High School Football Game.
The Princeton high school football
team again showed sportsmanship by
going to Elk River and losing the
game only by a score of 20 to 7. Elk
River, though outweighing our team
some, was more,of a match than any
team our boys have played.
In the first half Clement Sanford
intercepted one of Elk River's forward
passes and, from one end of the field,
went to within five yards of our goal.
Then, on our first down, Reichard re
ceived the ball and made the first
touchdown of the game.
With the second half came Elk
River's victory. Our team could not
make much more headway two of
their long forward, passes gave Elk
River two touchdowns, but their last
one was made by gradual gains.
This is the last football game of the
season for our team. The last two
games have been canceled, the one
with Milaca, the other with St. Cloud.
Both were to be played here. Our
team has been handicapped because
of the equipment used and the light
ness of the eleven, but they have
showed themselves good sportsmen
spite of the odds.
The basketball season is now com
ing on with fine'expectations of a bet
ter success. The first gamer is sched
uled with St. Francis on December 2..
We expect the people of Princeton to-1
attend as many of our games as pos
sible and stand by their team.
