most people realize.
"It is really surprising that the

Miske's Claim That He Was

Held by Referee
(By United Press)

N ew York, Oct. 14Billy Miske
today claims the official distinction of
being a better man than Tommy Gib
bonsbut it doesn't mean anything.
The bout scheduled for IB rounds
ended in the tenth when Miske
crumpled to the mat-and claimed a
foul which after a moments hesitlar
tion, was sustained by the referee.
Billy McPartland- The blow that
ended things was seen by few, a cir
cumstance which naturally gave rise
a lot of audible remarks from the
crowd in Madison Square. Gibbons
seemed as much surprised as anyone

Although Gibbons conceded 11
pounds to Miske together with a
marked advantage in reach, he made
the latter, look like a husky lumber
jack engaged in the pastime of pick

Gibbons uncorked a shifty, vicious
attack in the first few rounds and
found a, landing place for almost ev
ery blow, while Miske, trying des
perately to locate his oppdnent, wast
ed tons of energy in wild swings
that would have floored an ox.
Miske tried several time* to make
use of his advantage in reach and
hold himself out of harm's way by
placing glove play on the top of
Gibbon's skull but the letter's fail
ure to co-operate usually resulted in
left jolts to the head that drove all
such thoughts off strategy out of

through the courtey of a number
of, Bemddiji business houles, have
been eagerly accepted by
ive hunters, especially those con
templating a hunting trip for the
first time. Most of the old hunters
are familiar with the limits in which
they are allowed to hunt but the no
vice is. not so sure unless provided
with just snuch a map.
There are still a few of these maps
available at the Pioneer office and
will be given out gratis to hunters
who wish to make use of them- Sev-
eral of the downtown stores still have
a limited supply of these maps to be
given out free of charge.
All indications point to a very
plentiful supply of partridges this
year, last season being closed en
tirely and ,it is expected that the
number of hunters will far exceed
the number which have already made
use of their small game licenses by
hunting ducks. Partridge is the only
species of grouse which can be taken

On the Road of Good Intentions
Numerous ^mproyemebU
a Nev*$Tank Tried
In Deep Secrecy
By William R. Kuhns
(United Press Staff Correspondent)
London, Oct. 14Despite the veil
of secrecy that is invariably thrown
around the development of new en
gines of destruction, the United Press
learns from reliable sources of a
monster tank, capable of carrying
50 troops, which has just been con
structed for the War office.
One who participated in several of
the recent trials stated "i was as
comfortable as riding along a well
paved street in a taxi" These test
have been carried out in an isolated
spot not far from London and every
detail of construction has been jeal
ously guarded by the military officials.
The new tank is designed along the
same lines as those used against the
Germans, but there have been numer
ous 'improvements. For instance, it
is capable of a speed of 2 0 miles an
hour, whereas the noisy, clumsy tanks
of the last war could scarcely do 8
miles an hour at top speed.
In addition greater attention has
been given to interior comfort. The
significance of this feature will be
obvious to any one who has had the
unforgettable experience of jolting
states. Demands for general farm over ditches, rocks and shell holes
in one of the earlier monstrosities
The average battle was a relief by
time one reached the scene of action.
There is an elaborate arrangement
of springs and the interior has been
The super tank is well provided
against attack. Experiments are
ing carried out with a machine gun
for fi
ing one inch shells .These it
i.i claimed, will penetrate and put
out of action an enemy tank-
The war office has considered the
possibility of arming each^ of the
crew with these guns. This would
mean that a fleet of these monsters
move fo^ard through
obstacd insurmountable, loade
with a contingent of troops.
There is a steady expansion in the
demand for industrial stock, accord
ing to the American Lumberman.
This expansion is attributed to the
steady improvement in general bus
iness.-conditions. For ejtomple, it
has been many years since the United
States has been so free from strikes
as it is today- The increase in'd e
industrial sources of
course, takes up part of the slack
resulting from the usual curtailment
in building at this season.
Lumber which has been manufac
tured to suit requirements of ordi
nary building operations, however,
has no other outlet and that is why
some grades of Southern pine stock
have shown a weakening in the
price. This seems to be a local con
dition because there has been no
slump in corresponding items of fir
in the middle Atlantic coast produc
ing regions-
In the South, the car situation has
shown slight improvement but it will
take ma ny weeks to bring it back
to normal. Elsewhere reports indi
cate a continuance of the Isevere
shortage of equipment-
Although "th early bird catches
the worm," early season hunters are
upt to catch more than that if they
do not abide by the regulations gov
erning the taking of partridges this
season, according to John Cline, game
warden for this district. Mr- Cline
rays that he would prefer not to have
to arrest any hunters tomorrow but
that the regulations will be enforced.
The game warden organization is
especially strong this season und ev
ery partridge haunt will be protected
eo that violators of the laws will be
punished, Mr. Clint- stated this morn
ing- The daily limit is five partridg
es, the limit in possession at any one
tme is5
20 and the season limit is 30-
There probably will be a great de
ire to overstep this limit on the part
of some hunters, but Mr- Cline says
that they who do so will have no one
to blame but themselves.
Shooting from motor vehicles is
restricted and guns must be unloaded
in both magazine and barrels and
either taken apart or contained in
a case when carried in the car. In
other words, those who go hunting
with a car, must get out of the car,State
load their gun and then go hunting.

Governor Ask* Republican
State Central Committee
Withdraw Support
Renounces Congressman on
His Recent Attack fori
Attorney General
(By United Preaa)
St. Paul Oct- 14Governor
Preus today asked the Republican
Central committee to withdraw
its support from Oscar Keller, con
gressman from St. Paul, and to op
pose his re-election.
The governor, in a letter to Charles
R- Adams, his private secretary, and
chairman of the State Central Com
mittee, renounced Keller for his re
cent attack on Attorney General
Daugherty- Governor Preus instruc
ted the State Republican organiza
tion to withdraw its support from
Keller and from the organizations
supporting Keller, to leave his pic
ture out of republican letters to be
printed and to take no active part
in supporting the campaign of Kel
ler. The action was interpreted by
some as a move to aid the campaign
of Paul Doty, democrat. Th gov
ernor indicated he will make an ac
tive campaign in opposing Mr. Keller.
In a letter to Charles R- Adams the
governor said:
"A few days ago I discovered Mr.
Keller's name on a poster circulated
by the Republican State Central'
Committee- I am opposed to Mr
Keller's return to congress just ex
actly as I am opposed to the elect
ion of former Governor Frasier to
U. S. Senate. I am openly and
avowedly opposing^O/Xjonnor in
North Dakota and I have done the
same and will continue to do so
as fa" as Oscar Keller'is concerned
ed in St. Paul-
"Two years ago Mr. Keller had
the support and endorsement of the
Non-Partisan League and Farmer
Labor party. He undoubtedly has
the same now.
"Furthermore, his disgraceful ac
tion in instigating impeachment pro
ceedings against Attorney General
Daugherty at the instigation of the
lawless output which wants to pre
vent the Attorney General of the
United States from doing his duty as
a public official, is such that I can
not support him (Keller.)
"I shall take this occasion, during
the campaign, to speak this publicly
and for these reasons there will be
no poster exhibited hereafter by the
Republican State, County or City or
ganizations with Keller's picture and
I am going to ask you not to give
youj| support to any organization
which has given its suport to Keller."
About 25,000 of the posters re
ferred to have been broadcasted
throughout the state- I is not
known whether they will be recalled
or whether steps will be taken to re
move the pictures of Mr. Keller-
Indications a-re that there will be
extended and interesting discussions
on the contemplated radio receiving
set at the regular meeting of the
Moose to be held in the Moose hall
next Tuesday evening. Committee
reports will aso be in order.
The Moose Publicity committee
had a full meeting laSt evening and
agreed on important recommiendar

will also make a convenient occasion
to pay quarterly membership dues. -y...
