VOLUME 30. NO. 9 COTTONWOOD, IDAHO, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1922 $2.00 PER YEAR LEGION BOYS MAKE BIG HIT GRANGEVILLE BOYS STAGE PLAY HERE BEFORE LARGE AUDIENCE. A packed house greeted Orangeville Post No. 37 of the American Legion, at the Or pheum theatie, Tuesday evening when they presented under the auspices of Cottonwood Post No. 40, a musical farce comedy, en titled, "Sitten' Pretty." The two principal characters of the evening. Jack Edwards and Leon Cone kept the house in a continual uproar. Leon Cone, impersonating Countess de Mon tozon, had the audience guessing throughout the entire evening's entertainment and many folks in Cottonwood were overworking their brains to identify the wo man. One man, whose name we ■ do not wish to make public re marked, "It must be Miss Mc Grath taking the part of the countess," to which he received j the prompt reply : "She is not ! that large." After which he again named over several other women residing in Orangeville whom he thought fitted with the features of the countess. Other members of the cast al so played their parts to perfec tion and we can, we believe, honestly say that Cottonwood enjoyed the play immensely. From a standpoint of attend ance, it could have been no bet ter for the hall was comfortably crowded, the receipts running near the $100 mark. The legion boys from Grange ville have asked us to extend their sincerest of thanks to the people of Cottonwood for the splendid turn out. They also wish to especially thank the local post for their assistance, which they realize had much to do with the success of their play. In the words of our friend. John Nash: "It sure is awful these days when a man can't tell a woman from a man." Mr. Nash w r as not fully convinced until the wig was taken from the head of the countess and then it was hard for him to believe that the part was played by a man, Leon Cone, an oversea veteran. NEW COUNTY AGENT. Carl M. Grayson, county agri cultural agent, recently appoint ed, arrived in Idaho county last Saturday. He will have an of fice down town , in Grangeville, next to the Sweet and Hanull market. The office has previ ously been at the court house but it was felt that an office down town would be more ad vantageous to the farmers. Mr. Grayson will hold the of fice for three months, on trial, the expenses of which will be paid out of the appropriation still remaining under the old Pavey administration. Should the now agent prove satisfactory it is said, the county commis sioners no doubt will make another appropriation. NAMES JOHNSTON. The name of Charles A. Johns ton was sent to the senate last Friday by President Harding to be confirmed for the position of postmaster in Cottonwood. There is no question but what the sen ate will confirm the appointment and it is thought that Mr. Johns ton will take up his new duties within the next thirty days. Mr. Johnston is at the present time visiting with relatives in Wiscon sin, having l>cen called there by the serious illness of his mother. It was his good fortune to arrive home in time to see his mother alive. Mr. Johnston's mother is in a critical condition. * APRONS AND OVERALLS.

The Cottonwood high school basket ball team accompanied by Principal Bossinger, their coach, departed Thursday morning for Lewiston to enter the basket ball tournament which will be held in the Lewiston state normal gymnasium on Thursday, Friday and Saturday to decide the high school championship of this dis trict of Idaho. The winners will go to Moscow in March to com pete for state honors. * The teams to compete in the tournament are: Grangeville, Nezpf rce, Kooskia, Lapwei, Lew iston, Gifford and Cottonwood. Each of these teams has made a good record during the season and are invited to participate on the basis of the number of games won and lost. Cottonwood had been invited to take part in the games but a protest was entered by Kamiah stating that they were entitled to the place, giving as their grounds that they had won moie games than Cottonwood. In order to satisfy the contention of Kamiah a game was ordered played between Kamiah and Cot tonwood on a neutral floor, by officials of the organization, Wednesday evening. Grangeville was selected as the place for the contest, with the condition that the winning team w r ould be eligi ble to enter the contest at Lewis ton. Kamiah proved an easy victim for Cottonwood, the local hoys having defeated the river boys by a score of 21 to 34. It is hoped that Cottonwood will make as good a showing at the tournament in Lewiston as they did against the Kamiah boys. The team will return 'Sunday evening. The boys making the trip are: Kenneth Miller, Francis Homar, Karsten Schroeder, Raymond Tacke, George Mitchell, Glenn Rink, Raymond Nims, James Nash and Delbert Hale. MUST DECLARE VALUE. George Poler, Monday of this week received notice from the general baggage agent that ef fective March 1 all baggage checked must bear a valuation made by the owner. Heretofore the valuation placed on trunks has l>een $100, which was all that could be recovered by the owner in case of loss. The in novation will prove very helpful to persons checking valuable l>aggage. A charge of 10 cents per hundred over $100 will be made on valuation. Tli is new rule has been in vogue in the east for several years and passengers having baggage to check have been eager to take advantage of this broad concession.

The game of "500" occupied the visitors at tention until 11 o'clock after which a fine luncheon was serv ed, the "eats" having been brought by the visitors.

The winners at cards were: Mrs. John lloene and Barney Seubert. Mr. Kopczynski says that he had some inkling of the affair but his friends insist that he did't, for had he, more wood would have been piled in the wood box. Birthday Surprise Party.

Only old time dances were danced. The winners at cards were: Wm. Ruhoff, playing as a lady, first; Mrs. Joseph Koll>eck, con solation; Marcus Lies, first and Alois Holthaus, consolation. Now folks if Mat was a little late in delivei ing your morning's milk, forgive and forget, or if he failed to bring you any cream, remember there were folks at the party who might have hit the cream pitcher a little too hard.

Savage, in which he suggests the organization of an associa tion of registered livestock to be confined to the region surround ing Lewiston. In his communi cation, Mr. Nelson says: "A number of pure-bred breeders on the prairie are talk ing of organizing a pure-bred breeder's association, compris ing all pure-bred stock including horses, cattle, hogs and she; p. This association could hold one good annual sale every year and have a little show at the same time, and Lewiston is the logical place for holding such a sale, l>e ing that you have the barns and everything for such a purpose. "I would like to have your opinion regarding this matter and to have you take it up with the breeders in your locality, If we could get organized this spring or early summer, we could have a good sale next winter., These are o n 1 y suggestions which 1 mention. If you have any better suggestions, I would like to hear them." A number of prominent farm ers have already written Mr. Savage urging him to take steps to organize such an organization, --———— SPLENDID PROGRAM.
