Earl Vance, who is well known over

at Livingston had been related in the
Producers News
Mr. Vance, upon hearing of the
SÄtÄlt!
the Producers News office and gave
us his story of the affair. Mr. Vance
was informed that the story had been
taken from the Great Falls Tribune,
and was printed in good faith as the
truth. Mr. Vance did not blame the
Producers News in any way but want
ed the people of Sheridan county to
get the straight of the affair.
VANCE'S STORY
It seems that seme time ago while
flying about the state advertising the
Gibbons-Dempsey fight the Vance air
was left at the Yellowstone Garage.
About a month later the machine was
removed from the garage and shipped
away. Mr. Vance claims that he
gave Martin a post-dated check for
the amount he owed him, which post
dated check was taken up at the
proper time. The aviator also says
that he was not in jail for any length
of time whatsoever, but upon being
arrested immediately fixed up his bail
until he could get the matter straight
ened out. Another thing, Mr, Vance
claimed that he left tools worth much
more than the sum he owed Martin
at Livingston and that he is now
suing for these tools.

The Producers News,

Dear Sir:
In your issue of Nov. 16th, there
appeared a few sarcastic remarks,
by Elwood House. It's very nice to
hear the big boy speak, guess he
is realizing that he must crawi out
of his hcJe. W T hen he says that he
doesn't think that I want to meet him
on the mat, I am quite sure he means
that if he could make the wrestling!
fans believe what he says, and get by
with it. he would be a happy boy, and
he tells me to put up or shut up. I
am ready to put up any time some
promoter makes it worth while for
me to make the trip. It's nine years
sincp I wrestled House, at Outlook,
and he has avoided me ever since.
So what does it mean put up or shut

LITTLE FOSS BOY HAS
ARM BROKEN BY FALL
Phillip Oliver Foss, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Oliver O. Foss of Homestead,
had his arm broken several days ago
when he was jostled off a long stick
held by two. youths who were much
larger.
The two boys, Theodore Ryneen and
Palmer Brenden who around the ages
of 17 and 18 had the seven-year-old
boy on a stick and were giving him
a real ride, but apparently did not
know the extent of endurance which
the young lad had and after vainly be-
seeching the larger boys to stop, Phil-
lip fell to the ground, breaking his
arm.
and it is hoped that means may be
taken to prevent older boys from
hectoring the smaller lads and caus
ing such dire results as the above.
Mr. Foss brought the young boy to
Plentywood last week and had the
arm set. This has caused Mr. Foss
a great deal of expense as well as
much suffering for the little fellow,

GANG OPERATING
ALONG S00 LINE IS
BEING SMOKED OUT
MEN HELD FOR SHERIDAN
COUNTY AUTHORITIES MAY BE
MEMBERS OF GANG.
The following article appeared in
the Fargo Forum and Leslie Ncrtli

story below is a brother of John
Northrup. who will soon be returned
to Sheridan county on the charge of
being implicated in the stealing of
automobile at Medicine Lake.
an
Stanley, N. D., Nov. 26.—With the
arrest of four suspects and discovery
of stolen goods in a shack in a coulee
near the Missouri river, Mountrail
county authorities believe they have
broken up a gang of thieves respon
sible for several robberies in this sec
tion and that
they have discovered
their rendezvous.
After Mr. Stephenson, Van Hook
merchant, had identified clothing worn
by two men in jail here as articles
that were stolen from his store sev
eral weeks ago, officials began an in
tensive search of the coulees and
bluffs along the Missouri river
southwestern Mountrail county. They
arrested Bud Thompson and Leslie
Northrup, who they say were occupy
ing a shack practically concealed in
a coulee.
Search disclosed several articles
that have been stolen from
in
business places in this sectionS'
the last few weeks.
A Ford tourine- car f n „nH T,*™
been stolen, was discovered in îhe
bushes near the shack. Included in^
loot found was some of the jewelry '
that was stolen from a Tioga store,
at the same time that an unsuccessful
attempt was made to rob a bank;

Authorities are also seeking a man f
who was sighted sneaking from the
shack and who disappeared in the
bushes and coulees. j

Sen. Anderson Gives Short Address
Just as the first tables were filled,
Senator J. W. Anderson of Sidney
gave a short Thanksgiving address
which was well received by the feast
ers. _ The Alkabo orchestra furnished
music throughout the eating hours
and Bob Kahle sang some vocal solos
which were greatly appreciated.
Dance Starts at 9:00 O'clock
About 9:00 the tables were knocked
down and the floor cleared for those
who cared to dance the light fantastic.
As the music which was furnished by
the Alkabo, N. D., orchestra, began
to float out over the hall, the dancers
began to cover the floor and there
was soon a merry, jostling crowd
tripping the light fantastic andH
joying themselves immensely. The
dance continued until early Friday
morning when the participants at last
decided they had had enough.
$700.00 Realized from Undertaking
Taken altogether the banquet and
dance was very successful, the huge
sum of $700.00 being realized from
the venture which sum will go lo the
benefit of the Outlook Community
Hospital. People fram
tances came and took in the sumptu
ous affair and were greatly pleased
with the entertainment and dinner.
Everybody was happy and enjoying
themselves and Redstone, Raymond,
Daleview, Plentywood and
far as Scobey had representatives ta
cn
gnat dis
even as
the big doings, not saying anything
about the people of the Outlook
munity who were
concerning the future of their hospi
tal and the prevailing sentiment
was very streng against those who
would wreck their institution.
Thank Public for Assistance
The Producers News has been
quested by the Outlook hospital boost
ers to hank thank each and every one
who in any way. either by their pres
ence or otherwise, helped to make the
event the big success it was, and also
to inform any one who had lost
dishes or kitchen utensils to call
Mrs. Claude Mills and a satisfactory
settlement will be made.

RADICAL BLOC Will
SHOW ITS STRENGTH
AS HOUSE CONVENES
NELSON OF WISCONSIN LEADS
ELEMENT NOW IN A MILITANT
MOOD.
Washington, Nov. 28.—There is no
doubt but that the radical bloc in the
house, led by Congressman John M.
Nelson of Wisconsin, is in a militant
mood and means to use its whip hand.
This group has chosen Nelson
chairman and Congressman Roy O.
Woodruff of Michigan as secretary.
Its membership is composed of the
solid Wisconsin delegation. Kvale,.
Keller and Wefald of Minnesota, Hud
dleston of Alabama, Woodruff of
Michigan and other more or less cer
tain members from the Dakotas and
