XX CHEERFUL NEWS FROM CAPITAL HELENA MAN TALKS ABOUT HOOVER'S ECONOMIC CONFERENCE POLITICS LAID ASIDE FOR UNITED EFFORT TO RE VIVE BUSINESS "There can be no question as to the outcome, nor is there any quest ion in the minds of those who know the situation intimately but what, the general improvement which is now evident throughout the indust rial east is certain to spread west ward and will soon assert itself through higher prices for agricul tural products." Thus declared S. McKennan up on his return to Helena from the nationwide economic conference held In Washington, D. C., last Friday. The conference was called at the request of President Hoover, and brought together about 250 from all sections of theUnited men States.

"Forget ting politics, recognizing the past history, let everyone look as now to the future and each do every thing possible to hasten recovery." In his comment on the meeting Mr. McKennan said that "no man could have attended this gathering of banking and industrial leaders without being greatly impressed with the sincerity of those who spoke on different subjects, nor could one doubt the assertion of all speakers in attendance that the financial crisis in this country has passed." Melvin men as "When such Traylor, Owen D. Young, Walter Teagle. Walter S. Gifford, as well other industrial leaders as many of the nation are willing to come together regardless of political af filiations for the purpose of giv ing their time and talents to the object of bringing back pros Mr. Mo one perity to this country," Kennan said, question as to the outcome.

Dayton of Minneapolis, were present to the number of 20 men from various sections of the district, and many had words of encouragement to re port in their respective lines." He May be Dumb, But Not So Deaf as Posed Last week a well dressed man made the rounds of the business places. Cards which he handed out explained that he was deaf and dumb and would be grateful—etc. When he entered Judge Gordon's office, the Judge was at his desk. He saw the printed card in the hand, but was not close man's enough to read it. Assuming his most dignified, judicial demeanor, the Judge said; "You are in the police court. Have you any busi ness with the police magistrate?" The man left immediately. The next day when mention was made of the incident, the Judge said: "Well, good Ifie, I never read the card, but I was sure he heard me. He went out of that door like a shot." The incident reminded the Judge of a story: "And how long have you been deaf and dumb, my good man?" "It'll be eight years, coming De cember," was the prompt reply.

Real Wedding The third night of the engage ment, September 14, is the occasion for a legal wedding in which two local people will be joined togeth er in wedlock, amid beautiful sur soundings and the participation of the entire cast of performers and chorus.

Reynolds, the bus driver, is no slouch as a pinch hitter and maybe the manager and the ticket takers fill in also. Red Brandon, Wolf Point mana ger, had heard about traveling girl teams, and how they sometimes fell hack on six or eight cracker jack men subs. So he gathered up the best aggregation he could, con sidering the summer schedule is over. The locals have been trim med on several occasions this sea son, but never by girls. Yesterday afternoon the Dougherty-Fylnn-Mc Collister-Brady Swedish sisters darn near turned the trick. It was the most fun of any game this season. Dick yarn, and movie thriller in real life, with the suspense sus nended until the last ten seconds of play in the last, half of the ninth. The first chapter did not lack in spectacular action. In the Wolves' half Jacobi hit sharply but was retired at first. George Loen dorf drove out a double. Then Oli ver (Red) Brandon, himself, took his stance at the port side of the plate and aviated one of Dough erty's speed slants over the right fence into the flying field. Gar field whiffed. Prendergast flied to Brady. Two hits two runs, no er rors. So far as runs were concern ed no chalk was needed until the 6th when Eder police! y allowed Miss Harrod a walk and she and Brady, McCollister and Flynn made the circuit on hits and Dougherty's out. Then all was quiet around the score board until the second ses sion of the 9th with the Wolves coming up for their last chance to save themselves the humiliation of defeat at the hands of Kansas flappers, 4 to 2. Neither the large crowd nor the SKSL suspected the surprise fin ish concealed up Brandon's sleeve. The plot was like this. Jacobi was to hit safe. In order to get back to the bench where he could direct the closing plays Manager-Captain Brandon was to hit tor four bases —right through the hole he made the first time. Garfield was to | double and Prendergast bring him in with the winning tally. The ! A perfect Diamond I ed. The deep part of it was that the stuff was to be pulled about 6:50 p. m. after it was so dark a speed merchant like Dougherty would think it a cinch to smoke 'em over for three more outs. It was a flashy ending but a sad disappointment to the roofers who wanted to see "the girls" win. The said girls—Harrod. Jaax. Lang Emory McCrorey 31, of Broadus, who took second money in the bronc riding finals this year at the Wolf Point Stampede, died last week at Broken Bow, Nebr. as the result of injuries received in a rodeo there.

He rushed across and greeted the director vocifer ously, as though they were old time friends. Ruggles was surnris ed, mystified, even perturbed. Oak ie. who knew Ruggles only by sight, had heard that he was about to start a new picture. Ruggles prom ised him three days' work, which were stretched into three weeks. Eight months later, Oakie got his second "break." It was a good part in Clara Bow's starring picture "The Fleet's In." This led to a Paramount contract, and a few months later he was made a star.

Ho AMBITIOUS POTATOES THAT GROW UPSTAIRS Somebody page the spirit of Luther Burbank. Something must be done to make things behave. It is not enough that the Iowa farmers start a pro duce strike. Now the produce it self threatens a revolt. Montana potatoes are refusing to stay under ground. Next the butter will walk out and the eggs crow over its spunk. Now this story is nothing read in another newspaper, but tells of something seen by three pairs of eyes in The Herald office. Mindeman, well known local farm er and gardener brought in a tall stalk of potato vine discovered in his large potato field, while digging some. "Did you ever see a freak?", he asked as he took the lid off a pasteboard box and took out the stalk. Growing along nearly the whole length of the stalk, at the base of the leaves, were potatoes— small but of normal shape and color "Early Triumph" potatoes. There were, or had been, at least a dozen, varying from the size of a small hen egg to a large pea. Mr. Mindeman said there were also potatoes on the roots of that hill. But it is uncertain if there were potatoes on the roots of that particular stalk. There has been some debate as to whether above ground spuds would have any ad vantage over the kind that are content to stay downstairs, sum mer and winter. The out-in-sight sort would be pretty handy for the bugs and the hoes; but maybe an attachment could he put on the combine to harvest them. Already Wm.

Picketing, in an effort to prevent marketing of commodities, contin ued on highways near Council Bluffs, Sioux City, Fort Dodge. Cherokee, in Iowa, and near Oma ha. Near Cherokee. Sheriff Arthur N. Tilton of Cherokee county was informed 200 holiday adherents were gathering to march on the city and demand the arrest of five men whom the pickets said were in volved in a shooting episode early Wednesday, in which 14 holiday workers were injured.

Sher iff Tilton today stationed 75 arm ed deputies in the courthouse to guard against trouble. The authorities, after promising probe of the shooting, declared they would countenance no more barricades on Cherokee county highways, a demand to which the "strikers" said they would accede. However, 40 pickets were station ed on highways 31 southwest of this city, and 21 took up their posts on another road south of here. 'will a Truce Ordered DES MOINES, Sept. 1 farmers' war for higher produce prices was officially suspended for a nine-day period today, but an air of tenseness still hung over the affected areas as news of the truce permeated the midwest. Some farmers, who have been picketing highways in an attempt to keep all farm produce off the markets, were evidently inclined to accept the suspension, while others continued at their posts and stopped trucks trying to run the blockades. The The order for the truce was is sued last night by Milo Reno, presi dent of the National Farmers' Hol iday association. It stipulated that activity should cease until after the conference of midwestern gov ernors at Sioux City. Sept. 9. Plans for the conference, which will seek to arbitrate differences between producers and buyers and plan legal methods of increasing farm prices, were going forward today.

Thus far Governor Olson of Minnesota, and Turner of Iowa have indicated that they will attend or be represent ed but no announcement has been made by Governor Bryan of Ne braska. Declaring that he did not wish to jeoparidze the safety of the farmers In clashes with armed guards. Reno, although sick in bed with a bad cold, issued his state ment shortly after Governor Turn er announced that the highways of the state would be kept open and that "mob rule" would not be tol erated. Two clashes between farm picket ers and truck drivers occurred last night. At Omaha, Sheriff G. B. Mc Donald and 40 deputies escorted several trucks through the block ade west of the city under diffi culties. Pickets sought to halt their progress by throwing tree trunks in the road and hurling sticks, stones, and planks at the drivers. At South Sioux City, Neb., a crowd of picketers estimated at 400 turn ed back 22 livestock trucks from Wayne county, Nebraska, after a brief clash in which a number of men were injured slightly.
