VOLUME 40. No. 12 EVERYTHING SET FOR 14TH All set? You bet!

With everything planned to the minutest detail, a big treat is in store for all who sojourn to Hope for that day. A glance at the program is all that is necessary to convince one that this day Monday, June 14th, is going to be one of the biggest in the history of Steele county.

At this time the parade will form, this event will include the band, ex service men in uniform, and numer ous floats from the different business houses and organizations of the county. Every service man is re spectfully urged to wear his uniform in the parade, and all who reside out side of town will be provided for with a dressing room in which to change from o. d's and blues to civies. After the parade an experienced aviator will give an exhibition of fancy flying, including loops, spins, dives, etc. This exhibition will be free to all. Those wish may secure rides with the aviator later during the day. When the flying exhibition is com pleted it will be lunch time. All visit ors will be welcomed to the lawns of the city to use them as a place to spread their picnic dinners. Free coffee and lemonade will be served by a local committee, but the visitors are asked to bring their own sugar. At one o'clock the afternoon pro gram starts.

This orchestra won first prize at a state contest at Chicago Qt-XA-tK'- i-. .. NAVY AGE REQUIRE MENTS REDUCED Word has Just been received from the Navy Recruiting Station at 40 S 2nd Aveneu South, Minneapolis, Minn., that boys seventeen years of age may now be enlisted for period of minority until twenty-one years of age or for a period of three years. Boys sventeen years of age must have parents' consent to enlist, must have a minimum weight of one hun dred and twenty pounds, stripped, and a minimum height of sixty-two inches, without shoes. COUNTY SCHOOL NURSE REPORTS Many of the children were found underweight in th following schools: Blabon, Pickert and Colgate. A hot lunch equipment in every school and more attention given to the noon lunch would help greatly in keeping the child up to normal weight. The minimum equipment required for serving the hot lunch in one-room schools is a little kerosene stove, stew kettle holding two quarts, ladle and a cup or dish for each child. Some of the foods which can be pre pared are: Cocoa, creamed soups, and creamed dried beef. It is also well to serve different vegetables of ten, especially spinach and asparagus which are so valuable to the child's diet and which he possibly dops not get at home—these can be bought in cans. Other vegetables that can be served are, carrots,, onions, beets, peas and tomatoes. Much improvement can be made in the noon lunch by omitting pie and doughnuts and by making the sand wiches more tasty and dainty, which can be done by cutting the bread thinner and spreading with butter and various fillings such as, minced salmon mixed with salad dressing, a little grated cheese, thinly sliced hard boiled eggs with salad dressing, peanut butter and various other things. In addition to sandwiches hard boiled eggs and stewed fruits of all kinds can be carried if put little glass jars with covers. Fresh fruits such as apples, oranges and bananas should never be ommitted. last year. All this sounds good, does'nt it? And every part of the program is all taken care of so that the Earle V. Jefferson Post, which is putting on this affair, can promise every event will take place as advertised. Everybody is invited to this big day in Hope. The ex-service men of the county are given a special in vitation to attend as it is the purpose of this meeting to make it a soldier's re-uniou, and at the same time pro vide ample entertainment for all. So fall in and march right to the city of Hope on Monday, June 14th, Flag Day—NEXT MONDAY. 'M, NEW ur W^mBAU BEARING LAWN Easy and Cut -f\\ Smoothly. -V-} HAVE A NEATLY CLIPPED LAWN ALL OF THE TIME.

NORTH DAKOTA, JUNE WEDDINGS PuD Together for an American Merchant Marine ROXDE-DcFORREST The war resulted in the creation of a great merchant marine—10,000,000 tons of American ships which cost us $3,000,000,000. Everybody agrees that we must keep this fleet on the seas. If we fall back to pre-war conditions—when only 9 per cent of our foreign trade was carried in American ships— We shall be in the position of a department store whose goods are delivered In its competitor's wagons. Congress is considering legislation which will perpetuate our war-built merchant marine. Until this Is done the ship* we have should not be sold to face conditions which, prior to the war, resulted In the decline of our merchant marine to insignificance. This Committee calls attention to these facts because right solution of our shipping problem is vital to the future prosperity of shipbuilding, but equally vital to the safety and prosperity of the nation.

Committee of American Shipbuilders 30 CHURCH STREET, NEW YORK CITY On Sunday, June 6th, 1920, at the home of the groom's parents, Mr. and Mrs. R. Ronde, west of Sharon, occurred the marriage of their oldest son, Paul, to Miss Ida DeForrost, who has taught the past year in Wil low Lake School No. 2. Rev. John son of Sharon, performed the cere mony in the presence of a large num|third ber of relatives and friends. Mrs. Johnson played the wedding march and the bride entered, sup ported by her sister, Mrs. Grodam, of Valley City, with Miss Mary Ras mussen, of Luverne acting as brides maid. The groom's brother, j\Jr. Knute Ronde, was- best man. The I bride wore a white georgette gown trimmed with pearl and carried a bouquet of white roses. The brides maid's gown was of white organdie and she carried a bouquet of pink carnations. The groom and best man wore a conventional black. Mr. Ronde has a large circle of friends throughout the county, hav ing lived with his parents in Hope, Luverne and Sharon, respectively, and is now engaged in farming on the Joslin farm north of Luverne. He was one of Uncle Sam's Yanks who answered the call to the colors. Mrs. Ronde, nee,Miss DeForrest, has just completed a successful term in the Willow Lake Sshools, and has a large circle of friends in that vicin ity. Her home is in Minnesota where the bride and groom are spending a short honeymoon before returning to their farm. After the wedding ceremony the guests retired to the dining room where a sumptious dinner was serv ed. The Pioneer takes pleasure in join ing with the many friends of the con tracting parties in wishing them luck and pleasure in their journey through life together. MERTON TRAMMELL SUR PRISES HIS HOPE FRIENDS Mr. Merton E. Trammell, of this city, and Miss Olive Burgett, of Orr, N. Dak., were married at Crookston, Minn., on Monday, May 24th, 1920. This news came as a surprise to all of Tram's Hope friends as he did not let anyone know of the event until just recently, when he and his bride were visiting at the home of his par ents, Mr. and Mrs. H. E. Trammell. Mr. Trammell has grown up in this city having graduated from our High School with the class of 1916. He was prominent in high school athlet ics and when war broke out answered Uncle Sam's call and served several months in the A. E. F. After return ing from France, he spent a year as sisting in the Farmers' Elevator of this city and then about two months ago accepted a position as grain buy er in an elevator at Orr, N. Dak., at which place he and his wife will make their future home. We take pleasure in wishing our classmate and his bride the best of luck and success in their future life together. Brain workers talking of forming a union, but they should not expect to get as much as muscle workers. The "Historical Review" given by John R. Ratto, the Impersonator, as the climax to his evening's entertain ment is an impersonation of such his torical characters as Washington, Lincoln, Grant, King Albert of Bel gium, King George of England, PreS' ident Poincare and General Foch of I France, and others. Mr. Ratto is the night attraction of our Chau tauqua which opens June 24th. Tliis impersonation of historical characters is probably the biggest undertaking ever attempted by any actor, and to anyone except the "King of Impersonators" would be forbidden ground. It involves not alone a study of portraits and pen 'descriptions, but the most exacting I and obscure details of history, tem perments, mannerisms, circumstan Jces and situations. Mr. Ratto pre sents his characters in action. Gen. Washington he impersonates in the act of making his farewell address, Abraham Lincoln as he addressed the crowds at Gettysberg, Gen. Grant at the surrender of Robt. E. Lee, and so on. Voice gestures, and speech are so reproduced as to make his audience live in the very presence of the person the genius of the imper sonator has created. Critics term it one of the most thrilling, instructive and artistic pieces of impersonation ever attempted on the platform. The major part of his program Mr. Ratto gives over to a series of rapid fire jokes, and mimicries of the inter esting characters of life. He pencils in full view of the audience, present ing his characters in "make up" and telling an appropriate joke all the while. His sketch, "The Irish Judge" is a special laugh feature, as is also "Deacon Jones at the Football Game." In the "Dago and the Fire" he pictures a story in Italian dialect which has raised character descrip tion to the realm of art. TELEPHONE CO- FINISHING INSTALLING NEW CABLES The telephone company have practically completed the installing of their new cable system in Hope. The old wires and poles have been cut down and hauled away, making a change for the better in the appear ance of the streets. As has been stated in a previous issue of the Pio neer the company has done away with the old system of individual wires from their offices to the differ ent phones and in their- place have substituted cables, which, besides ad ding to the neatness and compactness of the system, gives better service and lessens the likelihood of broken wires*. Instead of the countless wires dec orating the streets, we now have all the poles and cables placed in side streets and alleys. Although a few of the crew re mains to put the finishing touches to the work, the majority have left. Quick and efficient work has been their method of opperating while in town. It was not much more than a month ago that the wrok of digging the first post holes was begun, and now we have all new poles, the cables strung, and all the phones connected up with the new system.

Oak. $2.00 per year, 5 Ctt. per copy WIND STORM MUSES LOSS One of the worst storms that has struck this territory in several years was experienced Tuesday afternoon between four and six o'clock. The cloudburst of rain, combined with a little hail and an extremely strong wind, started about four o'clock, flooding the streets and making it so dark that it appeared to be night. The electric light wires were blown so badly that they short-circuited and deprived us of a steady power. However, the storm in the vicinity of Hope was not as heavy and bad as in the southern part of the county, especially around Luverne. North of Hope not much damage was done by the wind, but south of us the wind developed into a regular tornado, de stroying a large amount of property. Telephone and'telegraph wires are out of order so that it is impossible to get the exact amount of damage done, but we have talked to several parties and have been told some of the following facts about the way the storm struck Luverne and vicinity: Christianson Hardware Co.'s build ing is a total wreck. Lumber Yard wrecked and all the contents scatted for miles. Christ Jensen's barn considerably damaged. All garages and small buildings In the radius of several miles were wrecked, and some blown half a mile. John Hillerson's farm buildings were all blown off their foundations. No windmills left standing. JUST ARRIVED Fancy Dress Voiles Fancy Zephyr Ginghams Beach Cloth Hosiery Underwear Furnishing Goods Trees several feet in circumfer ence broken down. The local train through Lugprrne was on the high bridge west of town when the storm struck, and had it not been for the fact that the wind was blowing right with the train, It is very probablt that it would have been derailed, causing a worse disas ter than the train that was wrecked at Breckenridge, Injuring twenty-six people. It is the opinion of several farmers that the storm did not do much dam age to the crops, although it effected the corn and late flax more than the rest. These two crops were badly washed out, yet in most cases were sufficiently advanced so that they will probably spring up again. This storm came after some of the warmest and best days we have had this spring. Early Sunday morning it rained, but from then until evening it was ideal weather. Then it rained again Sunday night. Monday and Tuesday were both fine until the storm struck. Yesterday was pleas ant, but it is raining again this morn ing. KRAABEL & KRAABEL Hope, North Dakota I r, 1 if pl te Im.
