ERICKSON MUST ACT ■* MAKE FURTHER ANNOUNCEMENTS CONCERNING OPENING ON SEPT. 14 OF THE PLENTYWOOD SCHOOLS By Supt. W. E. Stegner. It is desired to make announcements more spe ooaoaniaff ermdiment for this fall in both the high school and the elementary grades. The plan as announced last week is to have as many as possible of the high school pnpils enroll during the week of Septem ber 7 to 12. It is therefore ré quested that those planning to at tend the Plentywood high school, enroll on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday of the week before the ening of school. Out of town pu püs who may find it inconvenient to come in before Saturday may enroll on that day. The bourse for enrollment will be from 9:00 a. m. to 4.00 p. m. Superintendent Steg ner and Principal McMillan expect to give their personal help and ad vice to every one who registers for high .school work. cific op The Plentywood schools will .tinue to require sixteen solid units for graduation. This is strongly recommended by both the state de partment and the north central sociation. The school has just re ceived its certificate from the high school supervisor indicating that the Plentywood high school has been "fully approved" for the con as year even 1930-31. It is hoped that greater results may be secured in carrying out the policy of encour aging every pupil to participate in some activity of interest to him in addition to the regular classroom work. The policy of permitting but very few to carry more than the nomal load of four subjects, will be continued. A somewhat different method of determining who should be allowed to carry an additional subject will betried out this year. The chief basis for de termining this point is based on ! the idea that a pupil must first prove his ability to carry four sub jects before he may take five. Sen iors who need five units to make them eligible for graduation may enroll for that number. It is hoped that parents will talk over the matter of choice of program with their boys and girls before they come to the school for enrollment. If they desire to come with the pupils at the time of en rollment they will be very wel come. So that there may be a chance of discussing the matter of subject choice before hand, the re quired courses and the electives are here listed. There may be some changes but the courses offered in the different years will be about bs given. The Seniors will be required to çnroll for English IV and Problems in American Democracy. They may choose two more units from Chemistry, Physics, Sewing, Ad vanced Home Economics and Re lated Art, European History, Pub lic Speaking and Journalism. The Juniors are required to take Eng lish IH and United States History. OUTLOOK SCHOOLS TO OPEN ON SEPT. 7 P REPARATIONS have been com pleted for the opening of the Outlook School and the regu lar session will start Monday, Sep tember 7 at nine o'clock. The following will compose the teaching staff: For the grades, first grade, Mar garet Johnson; second and third-B Edna Hawbaker; third-A and 4th, Alice Tronnes; fifth and sixth-B, Clara Folsom; sixth-A and seventh Nelle Donaldson; eighth, Lloyd Skor.

Breaking a precedent, the gover nor apeared before the legislature, in the gallery of which sat his Wife, and spoke vigorously for an hour, urging the passage of a six point program he had spent weeks in drawing up.

Clarksburg, W. Va., Aug. 31.— Harry F. Powers, 46, suave West Virginian who turned to mass mur der as a means of livelihood, added another ghastly chapter late today to the story of his career as a mod em Bluebeard. After an hour of questioning the accused slayer confessed freely to the killing of Mrs. Dorothy Press ler Lemke, 50, of Northboro, Mass., whose body was the fifth to be uncovered in the slime of a sewer trench on Powers' murder farm in the hills near this city. At the s ame time police announc ed, Powers described for the first time the means he employed in killing his other victims—Mrs. As ia Buick Eicher, widow, of Park Ridge, Hi., and her three children. Four of the persons, he revealed, were strangled and then beaten. One died solely from beating with a hammer. Powers, or Cornelius Pearson, a» he often styled himself, told at length of how he lured his wom en victims to this city through ex travagantly worded advertisements in matrimonial agency periodicals with a view to obtaining thedr property and bank accounts and W egley-Rongstad On Saturday, August 29th at the Congregational parsonage in Williston occurred the marriage of Miss Gladys Rongstad of the Quit meyer precinct and Howard Weg ley of Williston.

The bandits forced the agent to unlock the safe and then bound and gagged him. Police chased the STATE LAWS INADEQUATE TO GIVE RELIEF TO THE UNEMPLOYED-SPECIAL SESSION IS IMPERATIVE r OSE WHO URGE that capital ism must not be endangered though it is necessary to force drouth-stricken farmers and the unemployed to beg, steal or starve are now drawing that over-worked red herring across the trail of the powerful and rich corporations of this state. The purpose of the red herring plan is to direct public at tention to ways of raising relief funds that would make the burden of supporting the poor fall lightly or not at all upon those who in all equity should contribute most. One way that has been given much newspaper space lately is the law enacted in 1919 by the state legislature authorizing coun ties to provide seed 1 for What .destitute farmers. That law, of bourse, does not and never was in tended to aid destitute unemployed workmen. destitute unemployed with dependent families in this state than there are destitute farm «families, said red herring should in all reason fail to divert. LET THE FARM BOARD DO IT— > Another way that is meeting with enthusiasm in the organized control press is to encourage farm ers that have too much wheat, too many potatoes, too much of every thing to eat and can't sell at pric es that pay for marketing the stuff to donate it to their fellow farm ers in the drouth-stricken areas. Fanners havetwo answers to that way, viz: First, If it is a giood thing for farmers to give their sur pluses to the poor, why wouldn't it be equally good for the federal farm board to hand over that 300, 000,000 bushels of surplus wheat to the poor, and thus get rid of that burdensome visible supply that grain operators use to ham mer down prices to levels never before known? farmers suffered from charity racketeering during the world war makes them reluctant to send sup Since there are more workmen Second: NEW FEED LOAN REGULATIONS ORD HAS BEEN received by County Agent E. G. Ferguson to the effect that the federal government is issuing new regula tions governing a federal feed loan to be made to farmers and stock ment in the drouth area. Complete information concerning the loan is not yet available but it is understood that the basis for making the new loan was to be 40 head of cattle, six head of hors es and 200 sheep. It is expected that complete details of the loan together with application blanks will be received by the county agent from the seed loan office at Grand Forks, North Dakota the first part of next week. The banks will then be distributed to the com munity committees throughout the county so that those who wish to file applications may have access to same. OTHER FEED LOAN APPLICA TIONS RETURNED Mr. Ferguson ha sbeen advised by the seed loan office that all ap plications for feed loans that were filed during the month of August will be returned to the applicant so that they may make applica tion for a loan under the new reg ulations which will give the appli cant the advantage of borrowing more money. As soon as detailed information is received concerning the new loan it will be published in this paper. w OYER ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND DROWN IN CHINA DEUCE Shanghai, Sept. 2.— Estimates that at least 100,000 persons had f ptrishéd in the flood waters of nor thern Kiangsu province and that probably two million others were doomed to die there by starvation and exposure were made today by American missionaries arriving here from the devastated area. The northern Kiangsu flood, caused by the breaking of dikes along the grand canal, reached its crest last week just as the country was receiving first reports of the enormous loss of life and property in the overflow of the Yangtse riv er 600 miles inland. That the Kiangsu disaster would equal and possibly surpass the ca tastrophe along the Yangtse at Hankow, Wuchan and Hanyang was indicated by the missionaries. Their report was the first to men tion actual fiures in reference to the death toll in Kiangsu. The loss of life in the three cities on the Yangtse has been conservatively estimated at 250,00c 1 so far. By F. L. WILLIAMS, Miles City plies to distressed farmers except thnough their own organizations, and the drouth-stricken areas have no bona fide organizations capable of serving so large an area. RED CROSS RAnfPTi't'nt! KETEERS— An instance reported to me by a farm organization in Wyoming that donated three carloads of po tatoes last spring to the destitute of Arkansas shows how farmers at both ends are made the victims of the charity racket when the people who have charge of the so-called relief work are not farmers. It was the understanding of the farm organization that donated said po among the poor without cost. A Red Cross organization designated the place of shipment and con signee. Said shipment was deliv ored to said place and organization prepaid. Before the cars were seal ed, it was suggested that potatoes m each lot be plugged and notes put in requesting the parties who said . ri, a ï° es t 'T t ri h 5 MCTetarr and tell him h<m he liked and ' i f , he Ji ad t0 ,I >ay for Ä. notée .Î pl u g8®d, th In dt.. P Y* the ba f k in due time, answers to the notes came. In every instance, the par ties who received the potatoes paid 36 cents a peck! ^ " SPECIAL SESSION OF THE LEGISLATURE SHOULD BE CONVENED QUICKLY There are imperative reasons for conyeningthe state legislature in special session at the earliest possible moment. It is obvious that winter is only a few weeks off; that no work is being initiât ed that can be carried on during the winter months; that the Red Cross and other charitable organi zations are admittedly unequal to the task of providing relief for pos sibly 50,000 destitute of this state, Farmers Union Is Showing Signs of Returning Ani mation in Froid Section Froid, Aug. 29.— The Farmers Union held a mass meeting to as sist the Red Cross in providing help for needy families in this re gion. Negotiations have been made with unions in North Dakota for two cars of vegetables and pota toes from the Red River valley to be furnished free. It is expected the railroads will contribute trans portation. MARTIAL LAW IS ON IN IDAHO QOVERNOR ROSS of Idaho Sat urday night proclaimed martial law in three counties in which the main forest fire zone of south ern Idaho is located and ordered out troops. The hungry and idle men have found out they can create work by setting fire to the forests and at least a few of the mean get a job in the fire brigade fighting forest fires. As soon as one fire is well under control, one or more are started at some other place, which shows that people out of work are not looking for a dole but are will ing to do an honest day's work and earn their day's pay. All agree with the governor when he says: "It is a vicious practice that some men have fallen into. It has hindered control ot the fires. Hardly is one fire un der control when another is start ed. Somebody is doing it. We know their reasons, of course, are (to keep themselves employed. So the governor orders out the jtroops, not to fight the fires but to fight the men who set the fires in order to get a job and something to eat.

I Special Session of the Legislature Only Way to Meet Emergency Tom Ayres, editor of the Dakota Free Press, Aberdeen, South Dakota, addresses an article to Governor Green of that state. We reproduce part of the well written article and address it to our Dear Governor Erickson: HUMAN SKELETON FOUND IN SHARK'S BELLY OFF HAWAII Honolulu, T, H., Sept. 2.—First proof of a native legend that man eatine sharks visit Hawaiian wat ers was seen today with the cap ture of a giant "sea tiger" which held the body of Sadao Nakatsu, local merchant who has been miss ing since Sunday. The two left on a fishing trip and when they failed bo return a search was started by the destroy er Gamble, the mine sweeper Tana ger and six planes. The overturned fishing skiff of the men was found and many sharks were sighted in the vicinity. Shortly afterward two sharks were caught and hauled a shore. In the stomach of one was found the skeleton of a man. The remains were identified by friends from dental work as that of Na katsu. The shark measured 18 feet. Leo's Kill's famous encyclical, Re rum Novarum. This was the pope's third radio broadcast, the first to be given in the open. In his address, which he himself delivered in three languag es —Italian, French and German— the pope said: "In the past there has been be yond question an excessive and un just disproportion of the commod ifcies of life between capital and la bor, for on the one hand immense riches are accumulated in the hands of a few, while on the other the proletariat, who farm a multi tude beyond all counting, have no thing of their own save their hands and the sweat of their brow, It is therefore absolutely neces sary to reconstruct the whole eco a H system by bringing to the requirements of social jus tice so as to insure a more equit able distribution of the united pro ceeds of capital and labor.

GOVERNOR MUST CALL A SPECIAL SESSION OF THE LEGISLATURE Musselshell, Montana, August 27, 1931. Hon. J. E. Erickson, Helena, Montana. Dear Sir. B ECAUSE PEOPLE in immediate need of assistance have as yet received no relief from volun teer organizations, and because these organizations will be unable to provide adequate relief for a condition which is daily becoming more critical, due to the near ap proach of winter, I am again writ ing to renew my request that you call a special session of the legist lature to provide relief for these suffering people. Newspapers have emphasized the statement that no plan has been proposed under which the legislat ure can provide the necessary re lief. With all due respect to the press this statement can no longer be offered as an excuse, to avoid the necessity of a special session for the reason that a plan has now been prepared which will enable « « y ^ y y ¥ O YOU KNOW, Governor, that _ very few people are going to profit from these extensive expen ditures for roads at this time. Who will benefit? The contractors, of course. Who else ? I do not know, and 1 am not saying that our high way commission is crooked, but I am here to say and do say that there is an enormous graft in these projects if public officials want .to accept it It is a well known fact that there is a "commission"— graft—in every contract let by the public bodies. These comnkssions run from 10 per cent to 60 per cent. When you see a public body letting contracts in hot haste for projects that are not immediately needed one is left to wonder how much there is in it and why the public body is so anxious to spend the money right NOW, when mon ey is scarce, and the people are suffering in every way from a fi nancial disaster and a crop fail ure. I ask YOU, WHY? You told the farmers were D opposed to an extra session of the legislature. I know why, and will give you the reasons, since you did not disclose them. First there are the office holdere who do not war* their useless jobs discontinued. There are others who do not want their salaries cut. There is the highway commission which wants to spend the millions of dollars in highway funds. This is the politi cal machine. It is good. Every de partment has somebody on the road burning state gasoline and getting expenses from the state to help keep the machine in power, These fellows are parasites on the state. They are as harmful as the grasshoppers. They are a veri table scourge on the taxpayers, They corrupt the voters. They should be kicked out, high and dry and allowed to go on the bread line along with the rest till they under stand what a bread line means. Get rid of them. The only way it can be done is to call the legislat ure in extra session. We will show you how then, Then there are the bond holders (Continued on Last Page) ' / LEADERS IN BURMA REVOLT AGAINST BURS MUST HANG - Tharrawaddy, Burma, Aug. 31. —Saya San, king of the Galons, who led a recent revolt against the British, has met his Waterloo at last, but it was in a tiny bark pourtroom here, not on the field of battle.
