EGYPT; HEAR PLANS OF SHIPPERS’ MEET Next Tuesday Regional Advisory Soard Luncheon to Re place That of Club The Kiwanis club was taken up the River Nile to Egypt's oldest ruins, at the noon luncheon, today, by Dr. Eric P. Quain, by means of colored lantern slides and a talk on the ancient land of the Pharaohs. C. W. McDonnell, of the railroad commission, brought something more modern to the minds of the luncheon participants, in a talk explaining the meeting here of the Northwest Ship pers Advisory board, next Tuesday. Judge L. E. Birdzell, who presided in the absence of President Worth Lumry. had Eric Thorberg give a brief talk on the golf tournament and in troduce Paul T. Cook. Bismarck's golf prodigy. Cook was highly praised for his fine playing form and Judge Birdzell said Bismarck depended on him to bring the state championship here Clubs To Sponsor Shippers Commissioner McDonnell said the luncheon next Tuesday at the Pat terson hotel, in connection with the regional advisory board meeting, had been put in the hand's of the service clubs of the city and that they also were to take charge of the program. He hoped that the clubs would make a hit of the occasion, as it had been difficult to get the board meetings away from Minnesota and Fargo and Grand Forks. One meeting was held at Valley City and that was so much better than any ever held at the Twin cities that the opposition was broken down, nevertheless the Minnesotans were reluctant to come as far as Bis marck. The Northern Pacific finally consented to run a special train here. It is now up to Bismarck to convince the visitors that ihe selection of this city was justifiable, he said. The regional board was organized in 1923. Since then 13 similar boards have been organized and the prob lems of shippers are being solved by these, while formerly there was con siderable chaos when it came to crop moving time in the northwest. Com missioner McDonnell said 136 railway men had attended the meeting held at Aberdeen in April. He urged that all business men here who can drop In on the meetings at the auditorium and thus show the interest of the city in the board and its work. Club Studies Egypt Dr. Quain .-aid he would show a panorama of the most ancient and most modern life existing side by side in the land of the world's old reli gions, where the natives still plow With a crooked root and camels, don keys and water buffalos’ backs fur nish freight transportation facilities. Where modern stores and other buildings, with electricity are offset by slime, mud and dirt hovels and hygiene is ignored.

Guests of the day included Dr. F. C. Constans and Dr. Waldschmidt. Perry Returns Home From Buying Trip and Brings Kin on Visit W. E.

July 15.—The weath er-worn set of elk's antlers that dec orate the front of the pilot house on the river steamer Chris Greene are about to become the prize in another exciting river race—a race in which a woman may pilot one of the con tending vessels. A year ago these elk horns were worn proudly by the steamer Betsy Ann. Then the Betsy Ann, skippered by the youthful Captain Frederick Way, raced the Chris Greene, whose skipper bears the same name as the boat—Chris Greene. The Greenes won—and ever since Captain Way has dreamed of getting the trophy back. There'll be a preliminary heat, though, in which the Betsy Ann will race the steamer Tom Greene, sister ship of the Chris Greene. The two boats will run from the Cincinnati whariboat to the New Richmond dam. a distance of 25 miles, and the Betsy Ann won't get to race the Christ Greene unless she beats the Tom Greene. Mrs. Mary B. Greene, widow of Captain Gordon Greene, founder of the Greene line of steamships, is the only licensed woman river pilot in the country, and she is prepared to pilot the steamers that bear her sons’ names. A short time ago a friend of Cap tain Way gave him a new set of elk’s antlers—symbol, all up and down the river, of speed. But Captain Way, recalling his defeat of last year, doesn't think he ought to put them up unless he can beat the Greene boats. He is confident, too. that he can do it. • In our race last year we got off to a bad start, as our pumps failed to function properly” he says. “By the time this difficulty had been over come the Christ Greene had taken the lead. But this year it’ll be different.” Captain Mary B. Greene, said to be the only womn river pilot, Is shown above. In the center is Captain Fred Way of the Betsy Ann, and at the right is Captain Tom Greene of the steamer Tom Greene. The other pic ture shows the exciting race last year.

THE BISMARCK TRIBUNE, TUESDAY, JULY 16, 1929 NEW GERMAN LINER TRIES FOR RECORD Bremerhaven. Germany, July 16.

T.) on her maiden voyage to New York, with her officers secretly bent on making a record Atlantic crossing. Officials of the North German Lloyd line, with eyes twinkling, would not admit that the Bremen would at tempt anything like a race against time on her first voyage. They said they would be quite content if the new liner could be relied on to make the passage from the channel ports to New York with regularity in a little more than five days. The big liner was given a royal send off. She is a four propellor, tur bine ship, and is the last word of German design in luxury, comfort, and safety. President Von Hinden burg himself christened her a year ago. In the words of J. C. Stimming. a director of the North German Lloyds the Bremen “swims like a fish." Family Play Hour Keeps Youth Home New York.—(tf s )—Even the family flapper will give up a dance for a family picnic or a night of games and stories at home, says J. W. Faust, chairman of the recreation committee of the National Parents and Teachers' association. “If parents want to keep their chil dren away from the questionable dis tractions of this alleged ‘flaming youth’ era they must inaugurate fam ily play hours in the home,” he says. “I’ve seen a typical flapper pass up a party to play with children on a neighborhood playground. She said she was afraid she would miss some fun at home If she went to the party. “That is what people demand to day—joy of life and fun. If parents will take time to play with their chil dren they need not worry about them staying away from. home. Each fam ily should budget its time as it does its money and set aside a general play hour at least on:e a week.” Pennsylvania Second In Number of Tickets Philadelphia.—(A*)—A "speculative” map of America would show Pennsyl vania second, after New York, in the number of stock and bond tickers in operation.

PRESIDENT DELAYED IN SELECTING A MAN FOR FEDERAL BOARD Disagreement Among Farm Or ganizations as to Best Plan of Wheat Aid Washington, July 16.— (i?*)— The se lection of a representative of the wheat growing industry for the fed eral farm board may require from two to three weeks more study of available appointees by President Hoover. The president is being delayed in the selection of this member by a dif ference of opinion among the coop erative grain associations, but is hopeful that he will finally find a man acceptable to all. Meanwhile, with several members who have had experience in grain marketing, President Hoover feels the board is capable of going ahead with its preliminary program. The disagreement among the wheat men lies between those who are in terested in organized wheat pools, one important form of cooperative farming, and a second group, itself divided into two or three categories, which are allied with farmer-owned and controlled elevators. Realizing the importance of the se lection of a wheat spokesman and the importance of the wheat crop with relation to the entire farm problem, Mr. Hoover is proceeding cautiously in selecting an appointee. He is anx ious that the wheat factions compose their differences and settle upon a man acceptable to all.
