HOPE, STEELE COUNTY, NORTH DAKOTA, APRIL 22, 1920 STORY OF 'A COLLEGE TOWN' The following is the story of the Senior Class Play to be given by the students of the Class of 1920, Hope High School, at the Opera House on Friday evening, Aprir30: Jimmie Cavendish, a typical col lege good fellow, is a senior at Bexley College. The night before the open ing of the play he has been out on a Jark and, in his' rah-rah enthusiasm has broken several windows, painted a statue on the campus and, to cap the' climax, calls at the home of Pro fessor Popp, the chairman of the dis ciplin committee, and kisses his ty rannical wife, who answers the bell. He escapes but loses his fraternity pin. Mrs. Popp finds this and sees Jimmie's name on the back. The play opens the next morning at Jim mie's boarding house. "Ma" Baggs by, the mother of all her college boarders, is expecting her niece from Carolina to spend Thanksgiving with her. The young lady arrives an£ at once captivates the fancy of Jimmie. Matters are complicated by the arriv al of the dicipline committee hot on his trail. He manages to get out of the scrape by statng that he was with his aunt the night before. His Aunt Jane is thinking about endowing a chair at the college and Jimmie "works" the discipline committee. They insist on seeing the aunt, how ever, and Jimmie's two chums, Tad and Shorty, each unknown to the other, agree to impersonate Jim mie's aunt. Mrs. Popp gives a faculty dinner party in honor of Jimmie'a aunt and Tad goes disguised as a giddy old maid. Mrs. Popp's brother, the head of the military department, proposes to Tad in a ludicrous love scene. The real Aunt Jane arrives from New York and goes to the dinner par ty. She is met by Tad and hustled away before she meets the faculty. Things are begining to get very ex citing for Tad as the Major insists on making love and the dinner party is full of comic interruptions. The college glee club, after sere nadng the guests of Mrs. Popp, are treated rather shabbily and, out of revenge, they "spike" the punch. The innocent, hen-pecked Popp thinks the punch is better than usual and takes too much. In his exhilara ted state he proceeds to lay down the law to his domineering spouse, but is rebuffed and led by the ear back to the dinner party. Jimmie's admira tion for Mrs. Baggsby's niece deep ens and he obtains her permission to escort her to the Thanksgiving foot ball game. The third act depicts the excited college crowd on the sidelines of the sj aure3 HBOJOOJ SujAiSsjiuBtjj, nearly the end of the first half and the rival team is winning. The Bex ley rooters are all blue. Tad, still disguised as the aunt, amazes Levit icus by smoking a pipe and rooting for Bexley. Mrs. Baggsby and the real Aunt Jane arrive at the game. The Major, mistaking Aunt Jane for Tad, renews his love making, much to the lady's surprise. Tad arrives and explains the whole joke to the Major. The Major is indignant and threatens to expel Jimmie, but is finally pacified by Tad's threat to tell about the Major's love making. The football men need Tad in the game, as he is a substitute player. They mistake Aunt Jane for Tad and rush her out on the field. She is rescued by Jimmie and, because of his hero ism, forgives all the deception. After a thrillng football description the game is won for Bexley by Jim mie and all ends well.

ASSESSORS MEET AT FINLEY The assessors Tor the val-ious town ships an villages of Steele county met with County Auitor Mustad Wednesday afternoon to receive their supplies and instructions for the work which is soon to start. Assessing will be less of a job this year than last for the reason that real estate need not be taken, this being the off year. Neither will the asses sors make the reductions and exemp tions allowed by law, as this work is part of that performed by the county auditor. Filling out the insurance blanks will also be less of a job this year than heretofore, in that the auditor's office has already filled in the owner, description and total number of acres .in each piece of real estate, leaving the assessor only to separate each discription into the various divisions required by the law. The following were assessors in attendance at Wednesday's meeting: Westfield, C. T. Ulberg. Enger, H. O. Haagenson. Golden Lake, Ed. Moe. Franklin, Martin Hilstad. Primrose,Ed. A. Erickson.

LAMBS FEED SOON Lambs will begin to nibble at grain when they attain the age of two or three weeks, according to a statement made by W. F. LaGrange of the North Dakota Agricultural College in circular No. 35. Regarding the feeding of lambs, Mr. LaGrange says in part: "A small amount of oats and bran should be placed in a flat bottom trough that is accessible to the lambs They should only have what they will clean up in a half an hour. A lamp creep is the right place to feed lambs. A small amount of grain will aid greatly in growth and developement besides relieving the ewe of the heavy strain to some extent. The troughs should be thoroughly clean ed daily. "For young lambs crushed oats are preferable to whole oats. Later, ground corn or barley can be added to the lambs' ration. Two parts of corn or barley, two parts of oats and one part of bran make a good ration. Alfalfa makes the most ideal hay."

The so liciting committee, composed of L. H. Smith and Robt McLaughlin, were out Thursday and Friday of last week, and at intervals since then, and have raised in the neighborhood of six hundred dollars with the pros pects of a little more. While this amount is not quite as much as was thought necessary, it will be suffi cient to "start the ball rolling." The club is under an additional ex pense this year as it will be necessary to order new uniforms. This item alone will make quite a hole in the resources. The team has already many offers from other towns for dates, so that even if the talked-of league is not or ganized, several fine games may be expected this year. The league is under process of organization, but it is impossible to say at this time how it will turn out. The management has written to several well known players of ability and as the bids are in eurly it is pos sible that some high-class talent can be secured. The backers of the ball team will meet this evening to complete the or ganization of the club and elect the required officers.

We were speaking figuratively, but it literally came true. Tuesday morning upon peep ing out the window, a clean, white blanket of snow about four or five inches deep could be seen. This snow has rapidly disappeared since, but has stopped all seeding opera tions for a few days. From all re ports, Hope had more snow than any other town along this line. The last few days have been cloudy, yet warm enough to take away practical ly all the snow. Seeding operations had just been well started when the snow interrup ted and it will take several days of the sort, we have been having lately to dry thfe land enough to begin again. HOPE MAN IS l-C DIRECTOR 0. 11. Shippy, of Hope, lias been named county campaign director of the Intercliurcli World Movement of Steele county. The apointment is made by Wesley McDowell, state campaign director, with offices at Fargo. Mr. Shippy will have charge in a general way of each of the cooperat ing denominational drives for funds in Steele county, and in this capacity will combine nearly a dozen drives which would ordinarily be made sep arately. In view of the attention which this united campaign is expected to at tract, there is to be made at the same time, April 25 to May 2, a non-de nominatonal request lor funds. This request will be made of persons who are friendly to the church or who may not have been reached by the denominational canvasses in the county. "It has been pointed out," Mr. Shippy says, "that the cooperation of the churches will make possible a fi nancial in gathering of J336.000.000 which will make possible unheard of things in the service of the Christian church to all humanity. "When we realize how little this really amounts to as a donation of each church member, or from those persons who are friendly with the church, a success of the Movement is assured."
