Visitors From Out of Town
Members of the Kiwanis Club de
voted a large portion of Monday's
meeting to final plans for the Char
ter Day program, which will be in the
Bozeman Hotel dining room. Several
new songs were rehearsed.
Howard Greene an
nounced there is a possibility of
Bozeman becoming the field for a
new motion
picture concern. Ott
Schmidt has been taking the matter
up and a representative will be here
within a short time to look over the
feasibility of the location. With the
great scenic advantages about Boze-
man and the climatic conditions so
favorable, no better place exists for
such an investment.
Fred H. Willson, Judge Franks,
Roscoe Coleman and Don Langohr
were all required to sit at the foot
of the table during the luncheon, and
were called upon to give their reas

were criticized for remaining in the
bachelor class, and their reasons of
fered furnished a lot of amusement
for the members.
Two new members were received
into the club yesterday—Rev. B. J.
Osbom and G. L. Powers. Harvey

R. just closed at Helena conferred
! honors of distinction upon two Boze
I man women. Mrs. E. Broox Martin
was elected state president of the or

elected state secretary. These two,
with Mrs. O. A. Lynn, regent of the
local chapter; Mrs. George Bond,
Mrs. H. B. Sims, and Miss Vinnie
Lee, represented the local chapter at
the meeting.
The session proved to be a most
interesting one, with reports from
the many committees showing a
great amount of useful activities by
the organization during the past
year. One of the important actions
taken was in making the annual
scholarship heretofore cared for as
a lean to students, a gift, thereby
making it much more attractive as
sistance to those who wish to obtain
a college degree. The Livingston
chapter has selected a boy from Mon
tana as the recipient of the scholar
ship this year.
Assistance was also extended by
the Montana D. A. R. to the work of
educating descendants of revolution
ary soldiers. For this purpose $50
was voted to the Martha Berry
school at Rome, Georgia. ,

Nine of the Eleven Various Unions Among Railroad Workers
Declare Against Strike and Will '
Not Go Out
CHICAGO, Oct. 25.—The prospect
ive railroad strike, scheduled for
October 30, was limited to approxi
mately one-fourth of the nation's
railroad employes when officials of
the Brotherhood of Railway and
Steamship Clerks, Freight Handlers?
Express and Station Employes, rep
resenting 350,000 men, voted not to
authorize a walk-out by their mem
bers for the time being. •
The action increased the number of
major rail unions which voted not to
strike now to nine, and the number
of railroad employes bound by such
action to about three-fourths of the
country's total of approximately
2 , 000 , 000 .
Tonight's action by the clerks left
the signalmen and the telegraphers
the only organizations in the eleeven
"standard" rail unions which may
jodn the conductors, firemen, engi
neers, trainmen and switchmen in the
strike they have called.
The threatened railroad strike, if it
takes place as scheduled, will be lim
ited to 475,000 train service em
ployes, switchmen and telegraphers.
This became certain today when
the signalmen followed the example
of nine other "standard" unions and
voted to remain at work. By their
decision 1,525,000 railroad employes
are on record against the strike.
The Brotherhood's 15,000 members
were instructed today to remain at
their regular work, but to refuse as
Thursday afternoon the city com
missioners met at the city hall in a
short session. Ttyerfe 'were pevertol
matters taken under consideration,
but little business was transacted.
A bid submitted by the Chestnut
Hill Coal Co. for furnishing coal to
the city at a price of $6.75 per ton
was approved. The city clerk was
instructed to draw a contract to
cover the coal supply.
An additional charge of $1 per
month was added to the water rental
of the Tea Cup Inn, due to the use of
the building on the same property by
Hardesty & Son.
Consideration of applications for
the position of city manager by the
commissioners at a later date was
decided upon. All applications will
be gone over with a view of sorting
out those applicants who might be
desirable for Bozeman. The selec
tion will take considerable time, so

cision was reached after several days
of conference by the executive offi

strike vote.
The United States Railroad Labor
Board does not intend to present any
plan for the settlement of the rail
road strike situation when the 1,600
union and carrier chiefs convene on -
Wednesday in response to its cita
tion, and any such proposal must
eminate from the labor leaders or
the railroad heads, board members
declared tonight. Th« board mem
bers explained that the hearing
technically is to determine if the
transportation act has been violated,
and that they had decided at infor
mal meetings that the board's prov
ince was merely to carry out the
provisions of this act, although it
would take any steps which might
tend toward promoting a clearing up
of the crisis.
At the same time the board form
ally announced that "there was great
hope for settling the strike," and
that all of the 1,400 union men and
the 165 l'ail heads summoned must
attend every session. The board
hired the Coliseum, scene of many
great gatherrings, for the hearing,
which will be open to the public.

will be a part of the afternoon pro

compete. The faculty will be given
a chance to display their agility in
a pie-eating contest, while the girls
will try to drive nails.
In the evening a basket social will
be held, the baskets of eatables be
ing furnished by the Woman's
League of the college. After the so
cial there will be dancing. Every
thing will be without charge, the
club extending a most hearty invita
tion to the public to attend for a
day and evening of pleasure. The
visitors will have an opportunity of
learning some of the work followed
by the students in the agricultural
department, as well as what their
training is doing for them, and the
extent of the college work.
Bobcats were in

outdistanced his opponent, Streibick,

the line for more gains than was

ability to play their positions to the

Rotations To Aid
Boy Scout Troops
Boys Work Committee Will Assist In
Securing Leader for Two
Full Troops
Members of the Bozeman Rotary
Club listened Tuesday at the noon
day luncheon to a most interesting
talk upon the boy scout subject,
given by S. E. Morse, instructor in
history at the Gallatin County High
School. Mr. Morse is the first reg
istered boy scout in the United
States and is thoroughly acquainted
with all the workings of the organ
In »peaking of the movement, Mr.
Morse outlined the principle upon
which the boys are trained. He spoke
of the development of the boy from
his early youth to manhood, explain
ing the effect of impressions re
ceived by the boy throughout his
later years. The nation has devel
oped in civilization in just that pro
portion which their youths are de
veloped, Mr. Morse stated. In the
early days of youth the boy is a sav
age and his play centers around the
raiding and destruction of the wild
man. The boy scout movement has
as its object the diverting of the in
stinct to destroy into the channels
centering about the building and
helping to improve. By this method
boys are taught, while at play, the
useful and helpful forms of amuse
ment, inculcating within them the
higher thoughts, thus making better
men of them. He asserted there are
boys enough in Bozeman to develop
two strong scout troops.
Housing conditions in Bozeman
were di^gussed, after a report was
submitted by J. P. Fab rick of the
housing committee. He stated there
were not enough houses in Bozeman
to take care of the increasing popu
lation. The only feasible remedy, he
stated, was through the building and
loan associations, where money might
be secured for building purposes.
- P. D. Waite stated the building and^
loan associations would open their
books for the purpose of selling in-
vestment stock, in this manner se-
curing more money to put into home
buildings. By this method there is a
possibility of a large number of
houses being erected in the city next
A check for $6 was started circu
lating among the members of the
club by Dr. Judd, who suggested the
novel method of showing thfe lively
method in which money travels. The
member receiving the check must usr
it to secure serviceable results, in
dorse it> and during the week the
check must pass through the hand
of even members. It is to be re
turned to Dr, Judd at the next meet
ing with a history of its travels.
A large delegation of members wil>
go to Livingston next Monday to at
tend the meeting of the Rotary cluh
there at a six o'clock dinner, the in

outlined for the session.
