Official Paper of Bingham County PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY PRICE—$2.00 PER YEAR BLACKF00T, BINGHAM. COUNTY, IDAHO. FRIDAY. MAY 27. 1921 VOL. XV. NO. 36 BLACKFOOT WINS Idaho Falls and Biackfoot Play Game of Eleven Innings Before Deciding Score is Made Last Sunday's base ball game be tween Idaho Falls and Biackfoot on the Biackfoot diamond added one more count for Biackfoot, toward t'he winning of the championship of the Yellowskone Base Ball league for tihe present season. In this game it was necessary to play eleven innings to make a decision, and the final sioore stood four to five in favor of the home team. In the first inning Idaho Falls made three scores and Biackfoot two and it looked at this time il,ike the game was going to be nothing but strike and run home. But in the next inning both sides tightened up, and no more scores were made ex cept the one by Howard of Biackfoot, which tied the game. During the third and fourth innings no scores were made, fifth, the visitors scored again, and the home team again tied tlhe game in the sixth. Then during the seventh, eighth, ninth and tenth innings neither team scored, but in the eleventh Thompson gave the home team the score which won the game. According to the gate receipts the attendance was 605, which shows that local people are behind their ball team. Now that Biackfoot has an excellent chance to win the cham Ipionship, the interest will no doubt be greater than ever. RABGAIN DAY A SUCCESS. Bargain Day, Saturday, proved a wonderful success, both for the mer chants of Biackfoot and the buying public. The farmers and townspeo ple were enabled to make some won derful purchases of articles which are necessaries of life, and it enabled the merchants to get acquainted with many people with whom they had not been doing much business. Crowds of people thronged the stores all day, and iit is believed that a frequent repetition of this event will lead to a better understanding between the farmers and business men. HONOR HEROES MAY 30. On May 30, uniting in a splendid spirit of brotherhood, the allied na tions will pay reverence to the he roes of the world's war. America's Decoration Day has been chosen by the Interallied Veterans as the day to pay homage to the dead. The cemeteries in France will be throng ed by a reverend multitude of men, women and children, these little French children who remember our hoys. There will be a national demon stration on that day in honor of the men to whom we all owe so much Mrs. Alfred Budge, Idaho Chairman, for the day's observance, requests that on May 30 everyone wear tlie poppy which the American Legion adopted at its Hast national conven i<ion as its memorial flower, -the poppy of Flanders fields—the little grows red poppy of France—that wild everywhere in France." "Through the cooperation of the American Legion, replicas of the real poppies will be offered for sale to be worn on Memorial and Poppy Day," says Mrs. Budge. "The real poppies are too fragile to be transported, but the American and French Children's League has arranged the best sub stitute for tihe real flower, which is the poppy made by the women of France who knew our boys, by the children who loved them, by the peo ple who now live in the very places where Americans best fought and won and where so many sleep. The profits from the sale of the poppies will go to the relief of children in devastated France. Memorial Day poppies will be offered at 10 cent each, or more as one feels generously inclined." The State Chairman's appeal for the day's observance continues: "We cannot go to Flanders fields, but we can all wear an outward sign in memory of our men so that the citizens of our state will take full part in the 'national demonstration of reverence and admiration' for the men who served in 1917-18, bring ing glory -o the flag and honor to the country. "Every true American, man, wo man and child, should consider it a sacred obligation to wear the bright red poppy on that day. The Am erican Legion in choosing the poppy of Flanders fields as the memorial flower to be worn on May 30, has requested that the emblem be not Baccalaureate Services Held at High School Auditorium, Sunday Even ing—Urges High Ideals Sunday evening at 8:15 at the high school auditorium the Bacca laureate sermon for the graduating class of the Biackfoot high school was delivered by President Upham of the state university of Moscow. The program as carried out is as follows: "Onward Christian Soldiers" Audi ence. Invocation, .................... Rev. Butler Scripture Reading, Senator L. R. Thomas. Anthem, "Almighty God," High School Chorus. Announcements "Calva" High School Male Quartette i Address ................ Dr. A. H. Upham "Come, Thou Almighty King " Audience. Benediction .................. Rev. Gillilan Below is printed a synopsis of President Upham's address: "Be strong and of good courage, fear not, neither be dismayed." Idaho has iettm|pfleted her stay in the wilderness, the desert, and like I the Children of Isreal is stepping into the promised land. Yet the people who have brought it so far in de velopment and progress, will, like Moses, step aside and others will, must, carry on the work. At pres ent there are about 1600 graduates each year in the state. These grad uates must become the leaders of the coming generation. Recently, attention has been called to the work of acknowledged experts. In the American army In the recent war, examination was made and found that 15 per cent of the soldiers rank ed in the A and B rank of natural intelligence. The same examination was made of college freshmen, and 75 per cent^of the intellige'"'* - rar .fe ed in A and B. About 139 of every 1000 children get through high school. One person in six has the quality of leadership. High schools and colleges hold the potential lead ership of the nation. It is our duty to see that these potential leaders get all the training possible. The plane of intelligence is far higher today than it used to be. Aid honor to the self-unade man; but in the coming generations a man will need a great deal of making. One must consecrate one's self and get a realization of the task that lies before him. Today it is not the fashion to consecrate anything, to reverence anything. The tendency is to affect and sort of scorn the labor and work, to belittle studying, dig ging and plodding. The essential point is to get "the vision." Many often are blind to the "vision of a business." To prepare for any busi ness is desperately hard. The will ! to do; how little it takes to keep I some busy. The necessity is to j throw one's self into the work, any work. The ileaders in the social and political turmoil of today, and of to morrow, in our nation, must put one's self in one's work. The ability to got along with peo I P'e is very necessary. What we need i is the a,d fashioned loyalty, the rev erence, the willingness, to play the game of life on highest ideals. Probably the schools and colleges hold the key to this .loyalty. Loyal I to traditions, to school, to team, to all that cooperates and develops hu man nature and destroys selfishness. A generation is to be made, a promised land is to be won. It is j up to the older generatiion to see them properly trained, equipped for j the battle of life. It is up to them to give themselves, furnish the will- j ingness to do. to work, to give the stuff, the brain, the vision, the will ingness, be loyal. We realize that j a new generation lies bofore us to ; carry us into the promised iand. | commercialized—therefore the flow- j ers were made in the very places i where uhe boys fought. "Let the school children hear of, the deeds of heroism of our soldiers j and ask them, as future citizens, to | pay homage to the gold star heroes. ' They crossed the seas, they went to France, to fight, to die, so that we of America would never know the hor rors of war at home. Untainted by j love of gain, solely for the ilove of j liberty and humanity, they kept up the noblest traditions of American history. ' "Let us all therefore, on May 30 pay our tribute of respect and admir ation for America's soldiers who ser ved in the late war. not forgetting of course our heroes of former con filets. And let the emblem of that respect be a replica of the real popipy that was made in France." Memorial Day I have a lover in the fields of France, Where larks still sing and scarlet poppies wave. There let him lie—I ask not his return That my poor grief may tend a lonely grave. There let him lie, among his comrades all, In the world's common sepulchre and shrine; The try sting-place of every nation 's heart; And let the common sorrow hallow mine. But let me plant beside his resting-place, Where fleur-de-lis and scarlet poppies nod, A bit of beauty from his native land — The yellow glory of our golden-rod. There Belgium's bloom and Italy's fragrance blend There shamrock buds and purple heather grows; There the fair lilies of the fields of France Grow side by side with England's beauteous rose. There with the whispering maples and the pines, With cypress black and fragrance laurel bloom, The evening winds with gentle rapture blend The breath of wattle and the southern broom. 0 ask me not to take my love away-— We should be lonely for the fields of France. — The Landmark. DONATE STOCK IN FAIR ASSOCIATION TO COUNTY A good number of stock holders in the Bingham County Fair asso ciation having already donated their stock to Bingham county, the county agreeing to take care of and improve the grounds, and a good number more having signified their willing ness to do the same, Mr. H. A. Ben son, secretary of the association, is this week mailing to each of the stock holders a copy of the letter which is printed below: To Subscribers for Stock in the Bing ham County Fair. Dear Sir: As you are no doubt aware, during the" year 1920 a con tract was entered into with the Com missioners of Bingham county whereby the fair grounds and build ings became the property of Bing ham County, the commissioners ag reeing in the contract to pay to the Bingham Co.

The proposition has been made and approved by numerous subscribers for stock in the Fair association that all subscribers be asked to donate their stock and not ask for re-pay ment of same in the itwo annual in stallments mentioned above. This would place at the disposal of the fair grounds committee now in this year and the same amount for 1922 to make much needed improve ments on the grounds. This will be used in Improving the j fair grounds, particularly the south west corner which will be leveled j and seeded to grass, and also build ing a new iron fence between the j city park and the fair grounds such as we have on tihe east side of the fair grounds. j Thanking you in anticipation of a ; favorable reply in the matter, we are | Yours very trulv.

O I OOOOOOOOOOOOOOO h° STOCK CANGES ARCTIC Noted Explorer Says Northland Could Solve Meat Problem of World— Reindeer and Caribou Abound. The so-called frozen Northland, ac cording to Vilhjalinur Stofansson, the noted explorer who is to lecure here on the second evening of the Chautauqua, is in reality a boundless stock range capable of raising herds that will feed the world. The bar ren tundras, according to Mr. Stef ausson, reach out in limitless direc tion and may be had for the taking. The stock that graze on them, the raindeer and the caribou, need barns nor haystacks. The reindeer provides for itself. Protected from the northern wolf, it could be raised in unlimited hundreds of thousands, sufficient to feed the meat-eating world. This was one of the theories of the Northland which was upset by Mr. Stefansson during his five great years spent in the Arctic. Instead, of finding a bleak, barren country, he discovered a land with plenty of food for the traveler, provided the traveler learns how to obtain It. He found a land of first Class ranges, rather than an eternal desolation of snow and ice. He found a land rich in possibilities for future develop ment along food-producing lines. In his great illustrated lecture, "My Five Years in the Arctic," Mr. Stef ansson explodes many of the old the ories of life and vegetation in the l>olar cirales. \ IN THE DISTRICT COURT Court opened Monday morning, May 23rd. Of the seven criminal cases on the calendur, it was only necessary to try one case, that is the case of the state vs. Louie Sayko, In which the defendant is charged with marrying another man's wife. This case was opened yesterday, and at the time of going to press had not progressed far enough to be reported. T. Morikawa, who was charged with unlawful possession of liquor, was bound over to the district court some time ago, under bail of $500. When icourt opened and his case was called the defendant failed to appear and his bail was declared forfeited by the court. The $500 will go into tihe county treasury. Wm. John aful Wm. Hutchinson, charged with unlawful possession of liquor, both pleaded guilty and will receive their sentences in a few days. Frank Haris, charged with grind larceny, being accused of stealing a saddle, horse, etc., pleaded guilty and was sentenced to the state peniten tiary for a term of from one to four teen years. He is a young man who apparently had sVaried out in life to make his living in this way. John Lyon, charged with burglar izing the hardware store of the Boise Payette lumber company at Shelley, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to tlie state penitentiary for a term of from one to fourteen years. A. L. olt, charged with lewd co habitation, pleaded guilty and was fined by the court. LIBRARY NEWS The library would be glad to get a complete file of the Womans Home Companion ,for 1920.

TABERNACLE IS DEDICATED SUNDAY Thousands Gather at Biackfoot to Attend Conference and Witness Dedication of New Tabernacle. Smith, Dorothy Taylor. Clara vän derwood, Effle Walburn, Margaret Wilson, Grace Wagoner. Maurice Drew, Merrill Hammond, Ray Kin Dan Morgan, John O'Born. Car The regular quarterly conference of the Biackfoot stake was held in the new tabernacle May 21 and 22, 1921. The attendance far exceeded that of any conference in the history of the stake, notwithstanding the fact that the stake lias been divided twice and the present Biackfoot stake represents only a portion of the original Biackfoot stake. There were 2343 present at the Sunday af ternoon session and most all of them were seated. President Heber J. Grant, who presides over the church in all the world, and President Charles H. Hart, of the first council of Seventy, were in attendance and were the principal speakers. Presidents Mark Austin and Nathan Ricks of the Fre mont stake, and Heber C. Austin and ChanTes W. Hansen of the Bingham stake were also in attendance antT' addressed the conference. The Lost River stake was represented by El der Parley P. Bluck. ' President James Duckworth pre-' sided over the conference under the direction of President Grant and was assisted by Counsellors Heber C. C. Rich and Nofear Davis. Every ward and branch of the stake was well represented and tihe message of the conference will be carried borne to those who could not attend. We were also glad to note the presence of .many of our friends who are not of our faith and we hope they will come again. During the Sunday afternoon ses sion President Grant dedicated the •beautiful tabernacle to the Lord and this together with tho visit to our stake by the President of the church will lie an interesting bit of stake history which will long be remem bered. Much timely counsel a,nil encour agement was given by the various speakers, considerable credit was given Uhe people for the manner in which they had butlderl the taber nacle and paid for it in so short a time, even while iprices and labor have been so high. Appreciation was also expressed for the manner in which the contractor, Mr. E. M. An derson had given attention to every detail. Tiie Saints were urged to learn and live the gospel of Jesus Christ, as taught by the written and spoken word of God, and thereby be leaders unto salvation. Tlie stake choir furnished the singing, II. Andrew Benson, con ducting. Luncheon was served in the social ball during the noon hour of both days, so that people from a distance would not have to drive away to dinner. This gave opportunity for a get-acquainted hand shape. Saturday nigh* a pageant, repre senting early incidents in church history, was given under the direc tion of tlie Y. M. & Y. L. M. I. A. of ficers. It proved to be quite inter esting as well as educational, and much credit is due those directing and also those who took part. GEO. H. CLARK. Stake Clerk.
