William Chupp Is Master-At-Arms There is slight difference in the life and duties of a master-at arms aboard ship and a police man in a civilian community, says William C. Chupp, coxswain, of Coleman, Mich., who is serving aboard a battleship in the Paci fic. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. R. H. Chupp of Coleman, but his wife, Mrs. Sylvia Chupp, lives at Boyd. He and the other masters-at arms aboard ship are charged with the responsibility of enforc ing all disciplinary sentences, a naval regulations and ships' rules concerning conduct and appear ance of the crew. They are the last men to "hit the sack" at night and arise an hour before the rest of the crew daily. Chupp came abroad ship in De cember, 1942, after taking basic training at Great Lakes, Ill. He has seen action at the invasions of Attu, Normandy, southern France, and Iwo Jima, and in other Pacific campaigns. Before enlisting in August, 1942, Chupp was employed as a laborer by General Motors Corp., Detroit. A native of Flint, Mich., he was graduated from Northern High School there.

Miss Alice Becklin Leaves Fort Bragg The following is à reprint from the newspaper at Fort Bragg, N. C., concerning Miss Alice Becklin, who recently ended her services with the army nurses corps after 28 years: Lt. Col. Alice A. Becklin, chief of nurses at Fort Bragg since September 6, 1941, left the post for her home in Red Lodge, thus ending her services in the army nurses corps that began almost 28 years ago. Miss Becklin, who is one of the highest ranking members of the army nurses corps, joined the American Red Cross as a nurse in 1917 at Fort Riley, Kansas. She was given overseas duty, and af ter two years was transferred to the army nurse corps. The list of stations at which she has served reads like a travel folder. Among the list is assign ment to hospitals in the Philip pines. In the United States, she has served at Fort Bayard, N. M.; Camp Dix, N. J.; Fort Totten, N. Y.; Fort Sill, Okla.; Fort Lewis, Wash.; Fort Warren, Wyo.; Let terman General Hospital, San Francisco, Calif.; Walter Reed General Hospital, Washington, D. C, and Fort Custer, Mich. Retirement will mean anything but inactivity for Miss Becklin. "I have a hobby—raising cocker spaniels," she said, adding thuit she believes everyone should have at least one hobby.

Treasury Department Week End Traffic Reporfed Heavy Notwithstanding gas rationing and a shortage of tires, the high way between Red Lodge and Bil lings Sunday reminded old timers of the tourist days before the war. Midland Empire people took advantage of the opening of the Red Lodge-Cooke City highway for their pleasure jaunts over the week end. They report that the highway, while not in excellent condition, was fair enough for the wartime speed limit. G. G. Hellgren, public roads ad ministration official, who has had charge of the work of main tenance and opening of the high way, worked many hours beyond his regular time to open the road. At times, he had to fight fresh snow, walked miles through the drifts to get his equipment to gether, and opened the road only two weeks later than usual with ever, ice had completely gone from Beartooth lake and from Chain of Lakes and from one of Twin Lakes. They said ice was leaving Long Lake and others in a lot less equipment than is ordi narily used on a job of this kind. Those who came for fishing went home disappointed. Creeks are high and some lakes are still frozen over, anglers report. How that vicinity, but that good fish ing could not be expected in the lakes for at least two weeks. Most lakes are accessible except Goose Lake where the road is still blocked with snow. All creeks are high with fishing only mediocre. Red Lodge creek offered the best fishing in the vicinity, fishermen stated. Cooney dam cannot be relied upon and fishing at East Rosebud is under par for the season. Spinners and worms offer the best bait, the local fishermen state, and fly fish ing will be excellent about Au gust 1. By 1850, most of the U.S. toll roads had become free highways.

Wight, 82, wife of Fred Wight, rancher of Poverty Flat near Joliet, died Sunday at a Billings hospital where she was taken last Thursday. Death was attributed to com plications resulting from her age. Mrs. Wight had been in ill health for the last year. She was born February 14, 1863, in Warren county, Iowa, a daugh ter of Mr. and Mrs. John Hamm. She married Mr. Wight at Max burg, Iowa, February 28, 1889. They came to Judith Basin in the following year, and moved to Carbon county in 1900, where they have lived ever since. Besides her widower, Mrs. Wight is survived by one son, Clax-ence Wight of Joliet; three daughters, Mrs. Roy Newton of Joliet, Mrs. William Field of Bil lings, and Mrs. Judith Cole of Columbus; one sister, Mrs. Minnie Shirtz of Denver, 11 grandchil dren and 11 great grandchildren. Funeral services were conduct ed Wednesday in the Settergren funeral chapel in Billings with the Rev. T. F. Rutledge Beale, pastor of the First Congregational church, officiating. Burial was in the Rockvale cemetery. Rosemary Jarussi Receives Promotion Rosemary Jarussi was promot ed to first lieutenant at the 61st general hospital somewhere in England on July 8, culminating a year's service overseas as an army dietitian. The hospital to Jarussi is attached has been rated excellent and is scheduled for re depolyment soon to the Pacific area.

Jarussi entered the army at Fort Lewis and served a year there before going overseas. State Is Closed To Sage Hen Hunting The Montana fish and game commission this week closed the entire state to sage hen hunting for the 1945 season because of a succession of three bad reproduc tive seasons for the relatively scarce native birds. Board Chairman Elmer Johnson said, "In view of three bad repro ductive seasons in succession, and the fact that the sage hen popula tion in many areas is low, there will be no season this coming summer. There are certain areas where the population may not be down, but if these areas were opened to hunting, pressure from outside probably would decimi nate the population." Last year, four counties were open for one-day seasons only. Beginning next Monday, July 23, The Carbon County News will changed its frequency of publica tion, becoming a daily newspaper instead of a weekly newspaper. The new daily will be publish ed five times a week, Mondays through Friday afternoons. Deliv ery of subscribers' papers will be made in Red Lodge by carriers. Outside of Red Lodge, subscribers will receive their papers daily through the post office. The weekly paper and the Red Lodge Shoppers News, published at present, will be discontinued. The new newspaper will be four pages in size each day, tab loid in shape, with five columns to each page. News and advertis ing that ordinarily appears in the weekly will be published in the daily, although it is hoped that publishing the daily will give and advertisers both better news coverage and quicker action on advertisers' products. For the first few weeks, until a definite routine is established in The News office, it will be necessary for advertisers to have ^heir copy prepared before noon of the day of publication—and it will help immensely if advance notice of large advertisements be given. Readers who send in news items should also phone or bring them in before noon. The pub lisher will also appreciate it if readers will send or phone in every piece of news that they know. We are going to have more space each week and it is going to take more news to fill up. For the first two weeks, the new daily newspaper will be de livered to every home in Red Lodge, regardless of whether or not you are a subscriber. After that period, however, the daily will be sent only to subscribers. Rates for the daily newspaper by subscription will be $2.50 per year, the same as is chargèd for the weekly now. There will be no newsstand sales, and sales at the office will be limited to the few extra copies that are printed each day. If you are not now a regular subscriber to The News, we would suggest that you subscribe now. The rush for the first few weeks publishing a daily newspaper, may cause you to miss a few cop ies, and we don't want that to happen.
