Car Bearing Stars and Stripes
Parades Through Denison.
Boylan and Thiesen Pilot Army Car
on Their Long Journey
Denison came in touch with the
great New York to Paris Automobile
race this week On Sunday morning
A. F. Boylan piloted the Studebaker
car manned by army officers with dis
patcher to Fort Leavenworth into
Denison. He tells us that the car
made many bursts of speed of sixty
miles and more per hour even over the
wretched roads. Theodore Thiesen
piloted the car to Omaha. The start
was made from here at nine o'clock
Sunday morning and it was an all
day's fight to get to Council Bluffs.
Early Tuesday morning Mr. Boylan
met the Thomas car representing
America in the great race, at Ogden.
The start was made from Ogden about
eight a. m. and at 12:28 noon, the big
car rolled into Denison. The streets
for blocks were lined with people and
the American tourists were greeted
with cheer" and waving flags. They
went at once to the Merchants Hotel
where dinner, numerous kodak artists
and a big crowd of spectators awaited
Roberts the king of automobile
racers drove the machine out of Deni
son when the journey was resumed
after dinner, li was hoped to reach
Council Bluffs that night but the roads
were worse and worse and the ma
chine was lodged at Logan for the
night. The tourists are husky look
ing boys and look as if they could
stand an Alaskan-Siberian trip if any
one could. Mr. Boylan tells us that
there was a great contrast between
the crew of the army car, and the
American racer. The army officers
were speedier than their car, while
Roberts and his associates weie quite
gentlemen. He said he saw no drink
ing or roistering among the racing
crew of the Thomas car. While at
some places they speeded up, the
greater part of the journey was made
at about fifteen miles an hour. As the
car was geared it was impossible to
make over thirty-five miles an hour.
The American car and equipment
weighs over two tons and this fact
made the jar of riding very little.
They carry a full equipment for rough
ing it. Rifles, two thousand pounds
of amunition. sleeping bags and all
the possible equipment for their long
journey. Everything except provisions
they always have with them. Mr.
Boylan said they took the trip leisure
ly. They shot birds and at one time
all got out and joined in a rabbit
chase. The machine when it reached
Denison looked like a cross between
a hay-rack and Bert Stovers' exhibit
in the Fourth of July parades. A
farm lantern was tied on to take the
place of the broken lamp and the car
was almost hidden with its load of
equipment. Two hundred and forty
eight different pictures were taken
of the car and crew during their
hour's stay in Denison, and cheering
crowds followed the plucky fellows
down Main street when the trip was
resumed. The flight of the cars has
been reported by phone from different
points along the line.
Mr. Boylan went to Carroll to-day
Wednesday and met the Italian car.
the Zust. They had bad luck all
along the line to-day and as a result
were obliged to put up at West Side
for the night instead of making Deni
son as they had planned. Mr. Boylan
will pilot this car through to Omaha
and Mr. Rouilliard will take the fol
lowing car, the French car which
should be along in a couple of days.
From reports, by the time the lag
gads. the Protos and Mont Bloc,
reach Denison we will have forgotten
that there was a race. The race
seems a foolhardy one. but the ability
of the autos to travel in the worst
of roads has been amply proven.
No dozen teams cuuld have made
the progress these machines have
made. We hope all our people will
give the foreigners courteous and
kindly treatment as they pass through
our county. It is their due for they
are strangers in a strange land. While
we want the American car to keep on
winning, we want it to win fair, or
not at all.

Tenth District Congressman Returns
to Look after Political Interests
Hon. J. P. Conner arrived in Den
ison on Wednesday morning with the
expection of remaining for two or
three weeks, during which time he
hopes to visit all the counties of the
big tenth. The new primary law
brings the usual contest for election
in his district in June instead of No
vember and Judge Conner as a candi
date for re-election feels that it i®
only proper that he should get in
touch as thoroughly as possible witb
district conditions. His only opponent
at this time is Mr. Woods and present
conditions indicate that the Judge has
him beaten by not less than two to
one. As a faithful, conscientious and
hard working representatve for the
people Judge Conner deserves re-nom
ination and the large majority of the
people of the district seem to, regard
it in that light.
His visit will necessarily be short
ened by his desire to return to Wash
ington where Congress is still in ses
sion. but he hopes to remain in Iowa
until after the state convention.
Numerous matters in the district re
quirs his attention and it is probable
that he will' see a large number of
his constituents before returning to
the east. It is his hope as well as
thatj of the republicans of Denison
that the convention on Friday may be
well attended by republicans from alt
parts of the county, as it will afford
perhaps the only opportunity of the
year for republicans to meet in coun
Mr. Carl Storjohann and Miss Alma.
C. Olson Wed.
One of the many marriages whicfa
have occurred ihis spring was that of
Mr. Carl Storjohann and Miss Alma
C. Olson which took place at the Ger
man Lutheran church on Wednesday.
February 26, the pastor Rev. Frese
officiating. The witnesses were Mr.
John Storjohann and Miss Effie Ort
berg. The ceremony was at 2 p. m.
in the presence of a few close friends.
At three there was a reception at the
home of the bride's parents, Mr. C.
F. Olson and wife in East Denison,
which was well attended by the many
friends of the happy pair. Numerous
and valuable presents were given
them. The out of town guests were,
Miss Lena Storjohann of Bloomfield,
Nebr.. Mrs. Mary Harm of Ute Miss
Effie Ortberg of Odebolt Miss Freda
Friberg of Omaha, Fritz Friberg of
Arthur and Victor Nyland of Trenton,
The bride is the daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. C. F. Olson of this city.
She is a graduate of the Denison High
School and also of the Denison col
lege. For over four years she was
the clerk and stenographer for Mr.
George Richardson the attorney.
Thus equipped with a good education
ability to earn her own way in the.
world, and of domestic habits she is
prepared to make a true home for her
She is a bright, handsome young
lady entitled to happy life. The
groom may have a long and to some,
unpronouncable name but be is a fine
young man. His father's family
have iived on a farm west of town for
over twenty years, and he took his
bride to a fine 200 acre farm
three miles west of Denison which is
his own. It will not be long before
the family will be moving to town re
tiring from work. We wish them
prosperity and joy.
Will be Fit'ed up For Moving Picture
The Methodist church building
which did such good service for the
members for so many vears. and was
later moved opposite the High school,
and used by the German Methodists,
is now to be made over for the mov
ing picture show. It now stands on
Main street the first building south
of the Johnson book store corner,
next door to the Stewart Co. Imple
ment huuse. Mr. Moenck has re
modeled the interior and the Family
Theatre which is now in the opera
house will in time be run tiere. So
the walls which once resounded with
the songs and prayers of the Method
ist friends will soon vibrate to the
music of ihe loud phonograph and
latest popular songs.
