Leo Taylor was elected manager lor the Blackfoot Bake Ball team at a meeting at the Commercial Club Room« Wednesday evening. H. B. Snodgrass \va s elected Secretary and Treasurer, and R. N. iLudi and Os car Hallberg were elected as the other two members cm the Board of Directors. W. D. Gagon and Ijeo Taylor were elected as a committee to attend the meeting of the league to be held at Idaho Falls in the enar future. Ther e is a question as to whether the lea gue will be in operation again this year and it iseemed to be the songe ot the meeting that as far as Black foot was concerned It was immater ial and should the league fall iby the wayside for thiB year the local team would play independent ball with neighboring towns, but will surely have a team. As a means of raising money to start the team of)f this year it was the hense of the meeting to play three pre-season games and -the fol lowing games will be played under the management of the following captains: Leans vs Fats, Walker Davis icap taln of the Leans, and W. R. Rob bins captain of the Fats. Main and Pacific Streets vs Broad way and Bridge Streets. Jack Stone captain of Main and Pacific and Frank Garvin captain of Broadway and Bridge. Single Men vs Married Men. Mar tin Howard icaptain of the Single men and Roy DeKay captain of the married men. It i B thought if the weather would permit the first pre-liminary game would be played on Sunday after noon April 23rd. Manager Taylor i s an experienced and very enthusiastic ball fan and will make the team an excellent manager. And will try out all the young material to be found in the vicinity o,f Blackfoot and expects to finish the season without the hiring of any players. He thinks there is plenty good material in and around Blaickfoot for a pennant winning team should Blackfoot enter the league. Frank Garvin was selected as the big Chieif to preside over the mound settle all disputes and receive all the pop bottles that come his way. Already teams are asking for playing dates, and while we will enter the training season a little late, It is thought by all who atten ded the meeting that Blacgfoot would have an excellent team for title coming season. a of FARM LOANS!

THE ORPHEUS FOUR The last number qf the Lyceum Course for the season 1921-22 will be held at the High School Auditor ium on Friday evening of this week when the Orpheus Four, a premier Male quartette of America, will ap pear for the program. T.his quart tetbe is without a doubt isuperior to any quartette on the American plat form today and you will miss the greatest treat presented to a Black foot audience if you fail to hear the boys. There is another reason also, why you should attend and that i s to as sist the committee in rounding out the Lyceum year. The course has been the most successif u ever held in Blackfoot from the standpoint of quality of the numbers rendered. It has been woefully disappointing from the financial standpoint. Un less a good audience of single ad miS ions appears Friday nigfiit, the committee is doomed to pay a defi cit of one hundred ninety dollars, which will fall pretty heavily upon few individuals. The patronage of our Lyceum Course during the past year has not been such as to enable us to secure a Lyceum for another year unless the single admissions Friüay night are large enough to appeal to the committee so in all probabilities this will be the last Lyceum num ber to appear In Blackfoot for some considerable time and you are urged to attend and get the full benefit of thi, last number.

This wireless business has set the world to wondering if, after all, the judgment day may not be more em barrassing than any one may think. Imagine what will happen if all the conversation of the world now stor ed In the air is tabulated, checked up and made a matter of public re cord. Oh, boy! Waves of force once started never «ease. Even the whisper in the secret closet makes an imprint lasting perhaps Into eternity. In short, we have Juet learned we cannot keep a conversa tion really secret, though we may do so for a little time. Perhaps tbe waves of thought are recorded, too. It may be best to watch our step and talk right and think right, alfter all. The writing already Is on the wall for the slanderer and the mental crook. 3000900000000000 o o o ROCKFORD o a o 3000000000000000 Fred Fisher, of Blackfoot, was in those parts surveying the past week.
