XX MONTANA'S MEN TRIM DAKOTANS » ALL-STAR TEAMS CLASH IN CLASSIC BALL GAME AT BRUSH LAKE Last Sunday's Brush Lake ball game proved a classic. One of the greatest amateur dia mond battles ever waged in this f* section of the Northwest. A 10 round event. Score; Northeast Montana All Stars 4; Williston Northwest North Dakota All-Stars 3. The Montana team was from Cir cle, Wolf Point and Poplar, five being from Circle. Vida, no doubt, would have had a part in the cru cial test of strength had they not had a championship game of their own on hand. It was a fast, thrilling game not entirely free from errors but punct uated with flashing plays, great pitching in the pinches and some timely hitting and smart fielding. It was the brilliant, steady, heady Î. box work of Buzzetti (of Circle that deserves a major share of the credit for the Montana victory. The work of Hayes of Circle behind the bat was also high class. Han son of Poplar got two hits. Captain Brandon made a two-bagger. Wein gartner's hit scored the winning run. Data for a box score is not at hand. The line-ups : Montanans—Buz zetti p, Hayes c, O. Brandon lb, Vinn 2b, Hanson 3b, B. Olson ss, D. Olson If, Weingartner cf, Pren dergast rf. Subs, Jacobi, M.

FARMERS FORM HOLIDAY UNIT A Montana unit of the Farmers' National Holiday association was organized at Great Palls last Fri day. About 100 delegates from var ious parts of the state attended the meeting. W. B. Hanna of Big Tim ber was elected president, C. E. Grippen of Sidney, vice-president and C. I. Barrett of Hobson, secre tary-treasurer. The executive board consists of O. B. Horsford, M. C. Parker of Kalispell, E. F. More field of Big Sandy and Lyle Stand ish of Bole. Under the plan of organization the state association will conform to the constitution and by-laws of the national association insofar as these are applicable to Montana. The association adopted a res demanding reduction of olution transportation and handling char for all farm products, partic ges ularly wheat and livestock. The convention went on record requesting Governor Erickson and J. T. Kelly, president of the Mon tana Farmers Pinion to attend the meeting at Sept. 9. This Midwest governor's Sioux City, Iowa, meeting was called by Governor Green of South Dakota for the pur pose of considering the farmers' non-selling movement in Iowa. A. M. Foor was in Culbertson on business several days this week. OFFERS HOSPITAL EQUIPMENT TO MATCH MODERN BUILDING RARE OPPORTUNITY OPEN TO CITY; JOINT COMMIT TEE CONSIDERS A ten thousand dollar complete outfit of equipment sufficient for a 25-room hospital to match a build ing in Wolf Point suitable for hous ing the same—that, in brief, is the offer made by Margaret Beddor, a graduate nurse of' long practical ex perience. Miss Beddor was here several days to consult with businessmen, and officials of the Commercial club. Monday noon she was a guest of the Lions at their regular noon luncheon. She explained her prop osition and the subject was quite thoroughly discussed. Several mem. bers talked. There was deep inter est and genuine enthusiasm in a project aimed at a real need of the community. President Jensen called on Dr. Cloud and Dr. DeWane both of whom went into the matter frankly and made it plain that a hospital was a commercial benefit to a community and that there were many beneficiaries besides the physicians. The point was stressed that a modern hospital was an essential part of any city, large or small, and was an important factor in at tracting people seeking a suitable place to make a home. It was generally admitted that the opportunity to get a hospital, furnished with the best of equip ment was rare; and that the pres ent was a time when building could be done at low cost, in case no building could be secured suit able to remodel. SHORT CHANGE ARTISTS MAKE UNLUCKY CHOICE "Give me a Coke," The order was filled and paid for with a five. The change was given. "I'll take one of these pencils." 'All right, they're a nickel." A tenner was offered in payment by the second of two well dressed strangers. The change was made. After strolling about the little store a few minutes one stranger remarked to the other: "I owe you a dollar and a half". (Hands over a dollar fifty in silver) The fellow receiving the silver said: "I'm getting too much silver." Then, to the shop*keeper: "Give me a five for this, will you?" "Sure". Lays a bill on the show case, and the stranger counts five in silver into the shopkeeper's hand. Then with a sudden change of thought, and a swift movement, the gent over-burdened with silver snatched up the bill and slapped it on top the silver in the shop keeper's hand. "Say, give me back my ten," he said, quickly. Very clever, don't cher know? But it didn't work. Not the way in tended, at least. There was a convenient opening in the counter right in front of the shopkeeper and tossing the silver into his till and the five back to the slicker, he sprang forward with surprising speed and swung a right hook to the jaw. At the same time in plain, forceful but inelegant English the little merchant told the slicker just what kind of short changer he was. After falling against a table Mr. Stranger bolted for the door, con siderably aided by a well directed place kick. His pal made haste to follow and was booted for another goal. Score, nothing to two and five to get. Just anther case of misjudging human nature. Dad Kearney is small, white hair ed, nervous. Seemingly an ideal victim for a flim flam act. But the smooth gentry, perhaps recently from Chicago, evidently haven't Dad's history in their card index. Dad has been around and out amongst 'em quite a lot. Once he was police chief, right in this here town. More than that he is just home from the hot springs and in the pink of condition. "I knew, as soon as one began paying the other money, what was coming, and was all ready for them," said Dad. "I made just one mistake. I should have kept the five." Mr. Kearney called the sheriff and got a quick response. They chased down the side street taken by the crooks, and all around town j but never got sight of them. Moral: Keep your wits when strangers enter—these days. In accord with a motion made and passed, President Jensen of the Lions, confering with President Camrud of the Commercial club will select a committee of five. At the time this is written the com mittee has not been named. Messrs Jensen and Camrud are consulting with others and proceeding care fully to secure a committee who will be active, and interested in the enterprize. From Terry Margaret Beddor is from Terry, only a hundred miles south of here, where she has been located eight years. A physician located in Terry built a hospital and Miss Beddor was in charge. Health con siderations compelled the physician to move away. Later the hospital burned. The county took the sit uation in hand and built a large hospital and Miss Beddor furnished it and rented it from the county with an agreement under whifch she took care of county cases. Now the town finds itself with but one doctor, a young man who does not take cases, it is said, that require surgical operations of major character. This greatly re duces the number of cases brought to the hospital. Miss Beddor seeks a larger field for her services, and opportunity to make use of at least the greater portion of her valuable stock of equipment. Miss Beddor's mother is associated with her in conducting the Terry hospital, hav ing charge of the housekeeping and kitchen. Reports indicate they both stand high in the community where they are well known. SEED EXHIBITS AT 4-H FAIR, OCT. 1st (From County Agent Warden) An opportunity to display exhib its of grain, forage, vegetables and corn is offered through the 4-H club fair October 1st. While no premiums are being offered ex cept in the club classes it is ex pected that experienced exhibitors will welcome the opportunity to show their products. Seed growers in particular are being urged to prepare gallon samp, les of stocks offered for sale and thus stimulate seed exchange. A special table will be reserved for this class of exhibits. LUTHERAN'S PROGRAM, PICNIC, BIBLE SCHOOL A Bible School program was giv en at the First Lutheran Church in Wolf Point Sunday Sept 4.

GLASGOW'S BAND ADVERTISES FAIR Glasgow's splendid high school band of 55 pieces, accompained by other boosters made a trip along the line as far east as Culbertson Saturday, and stopped here about an hour in mid-afternoon to broad cast a concert over KGCX. The party traveled in a caravan of 20 cars with the purpose of advertis ing the Valley County Fair, Sept. 9-10, and especially the Highway Celebration on the last day of the fair. The band is one of the finest school bands in the state and left excellent impression as to both appearance and musical training, an A program of prominent speakers, a barbecue, high class entertain ment features, and splendid ex hibits will made the fair and cele bration well worth attending. Many local people intend to go. Sam Gilluly, city editor of the Glasgow Courier, was with the boosters and paid The Herald a tery pleasant visit. Sr. TATE NEWS LET S S Archibald W.

CITY AND RURAL SCHOOLS OPEN 12TH; GOOD YEAR IN PROSPECT Increased Attendance Probable; Many Outside Stu dent Applications; Teacher Corps Complete Ex cept Two Rural Places; High School and Northside Buildings Put in Best Condition Ever During the Vacation. "Back to school" is the ruling thought with hundreds of local students and a corps of teachers. Many are now here. The others will nearly all Monday. Some outside students are now here, others have made ar rangements. Janitor Reichert and other work men have put both the north and southside buildings in spick and span condition. Every part was thoroughly cleaned, walls were kalsiomined, wood work and desks varnished or painted, floors pol ished and three new steel ceilings put on. The high school building, even when new, was not in such a arrive by next completely finished condition as now. Supt. F. H. Livingston return ed last week from his post gradu ate work at the University of Wis consin and is laying plans and surveying the prospects for a big, busy year. He says applications for high school enrollment from students outside the district and j county are already in excess of any past year. How to take care of them will be a greater problem than ever. Most of the former high school teachers have again signed contracts. Miss Wahl is detained by sickness. Margaret Randall will substitute. Rachel Jea Taylor who replaces Alice Olson, and Dale Bohart who succeeds Ray Boe. graduated from Wolf Point high about five years ago and has since completed a thorough course at. Virginia teachers college, East Radford. Va., and has been teach ing in a junior high city school. Dale Bohart is a Bozeman State college graduate with a good scho lastic and athletic record. Super intendent Livirugäton's comnf nts and the teacher list follow: Two new ones are Miss Taylor By Supt. F. H. Livingston Your school board and superin tendent have just completed the most important of tasks—the selec tion of teachers. If you have a va cancy today scores apply. But—it isn't a question of just getting a teacher. Many who apply can not quality; others will not accept the salary which we can pay; others lack the training we require. Careful selection of teachers is the most important function of the school board and the superin tendent. This is particularly true in these critical times when only the best of teachers can get results that will satisfy the patrons of the school and the community. It was never harder to secure the best. The fact that there are many applicants makes even more FUNERAL SATURDAY FOR MRS. HATTIE REN Funeral services were held Sat urday forenoon, conducted by the Rev. Win. G. Johnson of the First Presbyterian church, for Mrs. Hat tie Ren, who died last Thursday from a lingering illness. Burial was made in Greenwood cemetery. Harriett Jane Woodward was born in Camden, N. 1864, and was 68 years, 1 month and 27 days of age at the time of her death. On September 14, 1888, she was married to Jasper A. Ren. Y., July 4, to which union were born two sons, Ethner S. Ren of Redding, Calif, and Elmer F. Ren of Wolf Point. Her husband died at Ralston, Ok-1 lahoma, April 23, 1912, and two j later she came to Wolf Point j years and took up a homestead, which j she proved up in the fall of 1918. j For a number of years Mrs. Rer i followed the occupation of nurs ing, but for the last three years | has not been able to do that.

HERE NEXT SUNDAY VIDA TRIMS CULBERTSON 8-0 AFTER LOSING 1ST ONE FIVE TO SIX The Culbertson and Vida County league base ball teams are making a real local "world series" of the three-game struggle for the hon or of floating the County pennant during the next year. Vida won the first division of the league sche dule, Culbertson the second divi sion. According to pre-arrangement the season's pennant winner is de cided by three games—one on the home grounds of each winner and the third , if necessary, on neutral grounds. Hot One Coming Up The first of the series, played at Culbertson, was closely contested and went to the home team, after playing 11 innings, 6 to 5. second game, at Vida, was won de cisively by the Vida team, 8 to 0. Wolf Point was agreed to as the place for the decisive battle, and will begin at the ball park in the Stampede grounds at 3:30 Sunday, the 11th. Box scores of both games, below, show how the contests were lost and won. Dye, at his best, was the particular star of the Vida bunch last Sunday. The week before hard hitting by Culbertson and errors by Vida told the tale. The teams are not permitted to strengthen their lineups for these games and are restricted to their regular rosters of eligibles. A horde of rooters are sure to attend both teams to the scene of the struggle. Local fans can sit back and enjoy the sport and yell encouragement to both clans. Double Header Due to a game dated several ^vpeks ago between Malta-Saco and Wolf Point (a hang-over from last year) there will be a double-header at the local grounds Sunday—Mal ta-Saco vs. Wolf Point at 1:30; Vida vs. Culbertson at 3:30. Two thrillers for the price of one—40 cents for adults, 15c for children.
