2nd. War Fund Drive.
The auxilary branch of the Red
Cross and the people of the village
of White Earth generally have
reason to be proud of the com
mendable results achieved by their
efforts during the recent War
Fund Drive. The net amount over
and above the required quota of
$1,000, was $386.34, or a total of
$1,386 34. This is certainly a mag
nificent showing especially when it
is considered that the majority of
the people who took part in mak
ing the donations were members
of the Minnesota Chippewa In
dians.
i After dinner was served in the
public school building by the Red
Cross Ladies, short addresses were
made by Rev. Kah O Sed and
Theo, H. Beau lieu, after which the
auction sale of the many sundry
articles, including farm products,
fancy needle and bead wort,
canned goods, cord wood, etc.,
took plaice. Mr. Elenson of Wau
bun being the auctioneer, that
gentleman having cheerfully ten
dered his services gratuitously.
The bidding was lively and every
thing brought good prices, espec
ially so in the matter of ladies
langerie, of which they, were sev
eral very attractive and artistic
specimens, and the production of
the village ladies handicraft. We
are informed that some of the
village residents bid in several
bids which amounted to as high as
$25 and $50. The surrounding
farmers contributed potatoes,
chickens and one person, Allen
Morrison, contributed a fine Hols
teine calf. An entertainment by
the Wilson public school children
to have been given at the Assem
bly Hall and Red Cros9 war pic
ture entertainment atj the show
hall in the village were cancelled
owing to the bad condition of the
weather. Had these two features
taken place the proceeds would
have been swelled materially. To
Mrs'. H. Hull, president of the
Red Cro?s Auxilary and the mem
bers of the different committees
thereof is due much commendable
credit as they worked most stren
eously, early and late, in their
efforts to make the occasion a
success and they succeeded most
admirably.

lands of U. S., May 13,1918.
It is a pleasure to uote in the col
umns of this paper that the Hon.
Halvor Steenerson has filed for re
nomination as representative to
Congress from the Ninth District.
There could be no greater benefit to
the soldiers and sailors of this district
than to have him elected.
During my stay in the training
camp in Philadelphia' Mr. Steener
son considered it his duty to do me
a great favor. He went so far as to
personally assist me. It is without a
doubt that other men from this com
munity have been similarly treated.
You will do us an injustice to fail to
support him.
In this great crisis we cannot afford
to make mistakes. Let experience
us. One biundcr maj prolong
this frightful war to an indefinate
We are the fighters you are
the backers If you are for us, if you
are for Liberty, if you stand for Dem
