Europe is an interesting place
•to visit provided you are sure of
a way to come back. Thirteen
hundjred miles aboard a bicycle
through France, Germany and
Switzerland leave lasting impres
sions of these European countries,
and give valuable lessons in bud
geting traveling funds against ex
penses. French gendarmes are
strict and inclined to be suspicious
of foreigners. The Germans are
much more friendly. Just the sight
of the red cover of an American
passport will get you by almost
anyplace in Germany or Switzer}
land. The common, workaday peo
ple of Germany still do not under
stand why Americans joined the
allies against Germany. These com
mon people do not understand the
inside wheels of government and
war. After wandering for weeks
among totally strange scenes and
people, and your funds, in spite of
all possible economies, have dwind
led to somewhere near the vanish
ing point, the sight of the ship on
which your passage home is paid,
is one of the grandest ever beheld.
But the statue of Liberty, and the
New York skyline look still better.
A musical education applied to
natural talent has wonderful pos
ibilities for a boy or girl. It was
such that took Harold Shipman, a
Wolf Point high school product,
and four other young men to Euro
pe this summer. Shipman is be
ginning his fourth year at Minne
sota U. He ranks high among the
outstanding cornetists of the North
west and plays several other in
struments. He has played in the
U band for three years, served as
treasurer of the band association,
and is now its president. The band
has up to 150 members but its
marching number is held to 80, to
fit planned maneuvers.
Early last summer Shipman, two
other U boys, and two Minneapolis
boys, formed a five piece orches
tra and entered into an agreement
with the American Express Co.
to furnish music on board ships
going to Europe and returning. The
dates left them several weeks to
themselves in Europe. They went
to Paris first, leaving their musi
cal instruments at the port in com
pliance with the law. No compe
tition with the native musicians
Harold and two others decided
on a tour and bought three bi
cycles, $15 per. They pumped the
bikes 1,300 miles and them near
the close of the tour fell in with
a couple of young Germans, bound
told them they were foolish to
bother with wheels -when they
might just as well hitch-hike. The
Germans demonstrated their theory
by hailing the next truck and get
ting rides for all five of them,
bikes and all.
Harold and his mother, Mrs. B.
L. Shipman, were guests of the
Lions club Monday noon and he
told of some of the more interest
ing and amusing incidents of the
vacation trip. The story was well
told and kept the Lions roaring.
Many things happened to the boys
that are all right to laugh about
after its all over but which were
rather serious at the time. It is

in New York. The Yankees won
both Wednesday and Thursday, de

Friends of Mrs. Cyrus Johnson
were sorry to learn of her death
which occurred Saturday evening
in Great Falls where she had been
ill since Stampede time. She had
been critically ill, but last week
was reported as somewhat better.
Funeral services were held at
Great Falls Tuesday afternoon with
the Rev. Ward F. Boyd officiating.
Burial was made in the Highland
cemetery there. Besides the hus
band two daughters, Mrs. George
Bradford of Bainville and Eleanor
Johnson of Great Palls, survive.
With the exception of a few
years the Johnsons have made Wolf
Point their home ever since the
town was in its infancy. Mrs. John
son w r as a hard working woman
who entered wholeheartedly into
whatever she undertook. She had
not been in good health for sev
eral years, but had continued to
go on with her work until she was
in such physical condition that she
could not rally from the operation
which she underwent in July.
Through somebody's error the
name of the White Jewelry store
was omitted from the list of Com
mercial club members published
in last week's Gerald, Secretary
Gordon says he intends soon to
publish a revised and completed
list of members.
Space forbids anything like a
complete review of tbe young trav
eler's entertaining talk before the
Lions. At the Shipman home, later,
the reporter enjoyed the privilege
of looking at nearly 100 snap shots
of places and objects, taken by
Harold on the tour and developed
at the Lovejoy studio here. It is
a really valuable collection,
the voyage across Harold won the
singles in a deck tennis tourna
ment. Returning, he and a New
York lawyer won the doubles in a
similar tournament, each receiving
a handsome silver cup as trophies.
Tuesday, Shipman, Fred LaRoque
and Manfred Hange left for Minne
apolis to continue their work at
Minnesota U.
This is Manfred's
second year. It is the fourth wear
at the U for Fred and Harold.
Fred missed some time while earn
ing money and cannot graduate
until sometime next year. Harold
has been majoring in chemical en
gineering but is now transfering
to education and will not be able
to finish the course this year.
Shipman is planning a big success
fu! year for his band. He hopes to
give it more publicity than it has
had before and make it a forceful
advertisement of the great insti
tution it represents.

Henry G. Johnson, a man closely
affiliated with both the technical
and commercial sides of the piano
business in the mid-west, is a tem
porary resident of the city.
Johnson is a master tuner and for
ten years was official tuner for
the Chicago Opera company and
Chicago Musical college. He has
filled important positions with sev
eral large piano concerns and only
recently was majority stockholder
and president of the Henry G. John
son Piano Manufacturing Co., lo
cated at Belleveue, Iowa. Now he is
tuning pianos, putting on special
sales, etc.
The story back of this unusual
situation is typical of many that
have grown out of the world de
pression and crash. "I sold my in
terest in the Johnson company for
$400,000 cash." Mr. Johnson told
The Herald. "It was at the time
of the Florida real estate boom.
I got into it. I left all my fortune
down there. But that is that. I still
have my health, my knowledge of
my business and profession and
my experience. I am setting out to

Joe Heser's House
Burned Last Saturday
Mr. and Mrs. Joe Heser of the
Southside had the misfortune last
Saturday about noon to lose their
house by fire. Just how the fire
started is not known. Mrs. Heser
had had a hot fire in the stove get
ting dinner for threshers. She was
out of the house for a while, and
when she returned found the kitch
en ablaze. It was possible to save
very little of the contents of the
house. Mrs. Heser's mother and
other relatives have been visiting
there and their clothing was de
stroyed, as well as suitcases and
some clothing belonging to some
of the threshers. There is some
not enough to cover the loss.
Since the fire, the Joe Hesers
have been staving at tbe Tony
