J. A. KENNEDY.
Jjt?/ President Red Cross.
Northern County Division.
This urgent appeal was wired this
morning and found Bemidji struggl
ing in the influenza epidemic with
what available help it had at Cloquet,
and in frantic fervor commenced to
extend Baudette assistance. Eight
who went to Cloquet came home with
the influenza, while the rest will be
home tomorrow night,
Bemidji, to be frank about It, is
deep in the epidemic. New cases are
being reported daily and have been
increasing throughout the week. On*
Monday twelve new cases were" re
ported and it has continued to spread.
Bemidji has only four doctors. Dr.
is on the draft board, Dr.
Shannon is the city health physician.
Dr. Ward is a "flu" victim and Dr.
Gihnore is unable to go. Local
nurses, those who have had any ex
perience, are in Cloquet, and the
Red Cross nurse, secured for Be
midji by the chapter, is looking after
about, twenty-five cases, some.vouite
serious. HENDERSONS APPRECIATE
FIRE DEPARTMENT'S WORK
Dr. and Mrs. A. B. Henderson are
indeed grateful to the Bemidji fire
department for their speed and ex
cellect work thi smorning, when
their house caught fire between the
floors from a big stove pipe. They
stated it did not seem a minute from
the time the alarm was sounded un
til the boys were on the pob and put
out the fire in no time.

TOKEN OF'COMPLETE SURRENDER, MARCHED

Bemidji Is In
Big Outburst
Of Rejoicing
"Germany surenders uncondition-
ally." was the substance of a special
long distance phone call to The
Pioneer from the Northwest Bureau
of the United Press just before din
ner today.
It was hurridly builtined on the
big bulletin board of' The Pioneer
and set on Beltrami avenue. Within
a few minutes the report spread
throughout the city and pande
monium reigned.
The church bells pealed forth,
the fire department bell clanged its
strident notes, every other bell in the
city rang its salute, whistles hoarsely
voiced their loud acclaim, people
cried, hugged and kissed each other,
wagons, cars, trucks were crowded
to the guards and with OLD GLORY
stuck in every conceivable spot and
carried aloft turned out in a spon
taneous, cheering parade to the loud
clang of bells and whistle shrieks.
Bemidji tore loose as she never did
before. She screamed with the
American Eagle in his great war
victory. Every flag was flung to the
air and it was one great outburst
of patriotism unrestrained.

"This is one opportunity you have
to give your money for the boys and
girls over there, and make them feel
that you are really doing something
for them really worth while," says
the committee.
"You have invested money in Lib
erty Bonds which are absolutely safe
by the fact that these boys and girls
are over there suffering untold hard
ships and thousands upon thousands
making the supreme sacrifice, that
those bonds may always be the best
investments in the world. And now
are you not glad of an opportunity
like this to give liberally that they
may have some of the pleasures of
home in the battle field?"
MOTHER OF SOLDIERS
CELEBRATES ROYALLY
It was after dinner. The editor of
The Pioneer was wending his way
officeward from dinner, after having
posted a bulletin of the German sur
render.
As he neared a corner, out the
kitchen door dashed Mrs. S. C.
Bailey," attired in appropriate house
hold attire. In one hand she held
a large dUhpan and in the other a,
stout stick and she put that pan on
the bum with lusty blows while she"
cheered victory to the echo.
Yes, she has a son in Francetwo
