The House of David baseball team
has a national reputation, and one
of the pitchers on that team was re

the New York Giants, but refused
to accept the offer on account of his
religious beliefs.
The players on the House if Daid

field, wearing beards which reach to
their waists. This however, does
not seem to affect their pl i - * g as

Grand Forks—The first Wheat Pool

! purchased from H. H. Egar, cd Park
River by the wb eat Growers Ware
(house Company, a subsidiär/ of the
Wheat Growers Association, accord
1 , ing to an announcement by Geo. E.
Duis, president of the Warehouse Co.,
and the pool organization.
Mr. Egar declared, "The complete
success of commodity co-operative
sä to
"With the purchase of this elevator
comes the realization to the people of
North Dakota which has never before
existed," said Mr. Duis. "It is purely
warehouse proposition and no grain
wall be purchased from members of
the pool or from non-members,
Therefore, there is no possibiliy of
hedging or dealing in options. * Ac
tual grain will be handled and the
same actual grain will be sold by our
Minneapolis and Duluth sales âgen
cies," he said.
"The elevator is thoroughly mod
em in every respect," he continued,
and was built last year. It is of 35,
000 bushels capacity, equipped with
Carter disc cleaner and all power ap
paratus is electrical.
"Negotiations now under way will
place several more elevators under
pool control before the delivery of the
crop this fall/* according to Mr. Duis.
To. George Egar goes the distinction
of being the fi . rst JJJ a J ia ' a
|Pool elevator in North Dakota. He is
the son of H. H. Egar from whom the
elevator w as purchased.

Sounds Many New Notes in Me
chanical and Style Features.
In conversation with M. Trawicky
of the Kavon Garage, a News report
er was informed that the Willys-Ov
eriand, Inc., is putting out a new
small four called the Overland Whip
pett, vfhich is something absolutely
new in the automotive field.
The Sedan will travel 58 miles an
hour and will accelerate from 5
25 miles an hour in 10 seconds. The
new machines will cover 28 to
miles on a gallon of fuel. It has
four-wheel brakes and develops 30.5
horsepower and weighs just a little
2000 pounds. The roof of this
type car is only 6 feet 8 inches
from the ground yet the room inside
is greater than in any other light
the market. Its first appearance
is striking in the extreme. A man
of average height can stand along
side it at the curb and rest his arms
the top and look over it,
Mr. Trawickey said his company
hoped to have one in Plentywood
a short time so that they can demon
strate the wonderful machine to
public. They have a large ad in
issue of the paper on page eight
which gives a good description of
new machine.

League Candidates Lead Field By Good Margin Thursday Ev
ening as Returns Come in From North Dakota Elections
—Concede Hanna's Defeat.
Word received from Williston late
Thursday evening states that Govern
or Sortie and Senator Nye are lead-1
ing the field in the Primary election
held in North Dakota last Wednes
The report states that the state
went for Senator Nye for both the
short and long term and that Gov.
Sortie is thousands of votes ahead of
his nearest rival. The balance of the
State ticket was close, although the
Minot Daily News reports that the
entire ticket endorsed by the League
had gone over.
The Fargo Forum is said to have
conceded the defeat of Hon. L. B.
This means that the so-called Pro
gressives will file on the Republican
ticket against the FarmerLahor can
didates, and will no doubt receive the
support of the old gang, w T hile the
real progressives will line up behind
the Farmer-Labor candidates.
