A Progressive Independent Newspaper Devoted to All the Interests of
MONTPELIER, BEAR LAKE COUNTY, IDAHO, THURSDAY MARCH 2, 1922
The Scout program which was
scheduled for Washington's birthday
but postponed on account of deep
snow, was pulled off on Mata street
Saturday afternoon beginning at 1
o'clock. Many out of town people
were here and witnessed the excel
lent program, and Mata street was
lined with, people all afternoon.
At 1:30 the sports commenced
with the Single Dog races, which
was run in four heats, due to the
number of dogB entered. The race
was close, Walter Gertsch's dog
leading most of the way, except when
near the finish, when the Gertsch
dog stopped for a fight and "Lady"
a trained dog belonging to Baird
Lemmon of Gokeville drove straight
through the crowd to the finish. The
honors were equally divided be
tween the tyro.
The final heat of the double team
race was hard fought from the
start. Donald Cruiksh&nk, driving
a bulldog and a large black wolf
hound, crossed the tape but a few
feet ahead of Charles Wells, with a
team of collie dogB.
Donald Cruikshank also finished
first, for the $25 cash prize, in the
three dog team race, without much
competition. Three dog teams start
ed, but two teams nao considerable
trouble <Jpe to strange dogs being
hooked together. The distance cov
ered was about two and one-half
miles. Time 42.50. It was well
demonstrated that success in the dog
team races was due to careful train
ing of the dogs.
The Ski race was won by Reed
Hansen with Sherman Dunn, second.
The archery contest drew a large
crowd with numerous entries. First
prize for target shooting was award
ed to Sherman Dunn, it being a 6 Mi
foot Maple bow. First prize for dis
tance was won by Harvey Bateman.
Directly after the races, the boys
hi ked u p the canon, where « mulli
gatfr*TfflSTttdtag, weiners, buns, cocoa,
and apples were served.
A big Scout meeting at the Pavi
lion and a picture show at the First
ward hall completed the Scout rally,
with everyone well satisfied, and ev
erybody looking forward for the big
next year's event.
