The elusive Turner park ghost has undergone a transformation during the past week. In place of being the spectre of one who has departed to another world, the shrouded figure has assumed flesh and blood. The apparition is described now as a mortal being with a desire to imitate the spirits who are alleged to hover about graveyards. Fred A. Fischer, the one man who has come forward to declare he saw the figure, asserted last night that he really did not believe in ghosts but that he felt that apparition "was some foolish person who dressed up in a white sheet to terrify people' Stakes "Word of Honor." "I'll stake my word of honor that I saw a shrouded figure who hit me over ,the head with such force that a sharp hat and cut a gash on my forehead, Mr. Fischer said. "I have my cap with the hole in it to prove it, The footprints of the figure were in the road for sometime afterwards. "I never saw anything like the ghost before in my life. I have no enemies. Since no seasible. person would choose this means of amusement, I have come to the conclusion that it is some body who is foolish. I am not given to day dreams. I know that I fyas struck over the head by a white figure shortly after midnight near the alley on First street sou|h between Washing ton and Franklin. I saw stars but I did not go down. I dealt a blow back with my billy club and the ghost went down It then escaped from me." Ghost Rumors Pour In. During the past week rumors of the ghostfs activities have continued to come to the police but upon in vestigation they have all gone up in thin smoke. There was a story, for instance, that the shrouded figure had torn the coat off a .girl in Turner park last Friday evening. Investigation disclosed that the young woman in question had not been out of her home during the even ing. "I do not know how the story ever got started," she told the police. "Twenty-five persons have asked me about it. I never went out of the house Friday evening." Fireman Is Surprised. There was another story to the effect that the ghost had accosted a Northwestern railroad fireman Satur day evening as he was leaving the passenger station. The fireman, who weighs more than 200 pounds and stands six feet high, declared that the report was the first he had heard, of it. "I would blow him over," he said. Rumors of seeing the ghost on German street and in German park have floated in, but they, likewise, have failed of confirmation when the officers investigated them. Ghost Better Watch Out. In the meantime it is reported that a vigilance committee is being or ganized and the next time the ghost puts in an appearance, either as a spectre or a human being, he will be met with a charge of lead which will give him something to think over.

The New Ulm high school was de clared winner of the" debate "Resolved that the Kansas Type of Industrial Court of Adjudication /Should be Established in Minnesota" by a unani mous vote of the three judges at the conclusion of the forensic clash with Sleepy Eye in the high school audito rium last Thursday evening. An au dience of more than 100 persons heard the- debate which was the first to be held in New Ulm for years," New Ulm supported the affirmative of the question. Speakers on both sides demonstrated that they had spent much time in studying the problem but New Ulm had a greater fund of information to draw from when it came to the rebuttal and was able to defeat the opposition in this vital part of the debate. The New Ulm speakers had been coached by principal R. J. Stewart and Superintendent Arnold Gloor. *& N3w Opens Debatt. Miss Elizabeth Hintz opened the debate by explaining the Kansas Court and declaring that a need existed in Minnesota today for this form of ad judication. She said that the court was a permanent judicial body which was created "by the Kansas legislature in 1919 to settle industrial disputes in whichw ^capital and labor either could not or would not agree. -If either side were dissatisf^^sM**1"1 d^risjoi^ of the court it had the ri#ht to appeal to the Supreme court. In Minnesota, she asserted that the farmers were suf fering acutely from the railroad strike of the past summer which tied Up cars. If the Kansas court had existed in the State the strike, which is tsill continuing on four Minnesota roads, would have been brought to an end before this. Negative Re'pUes. As the first speaker for the negative, Miss Elsie Hanson of Sleepy Eye de clared that the court was unneccessary in Minnesota, that if*was economically unsound and that 'it was unconstitur tional because of its compulsory labor feature. & "To strike is the right of working men,' Miss Hanson said. "It is their one weapon against capital. The Kan sas law declares that strikes among workmen are unlawful but what of the. other classes? The law is in violation of the Thirteenth Amendment of thj& Constitution which declares that ther4 must not be involuntary servitude." Law Is Constitutional. "The federal government would not stand for the law if it were unconstitu tional," Howard Vogel, the second speaker for New Ulm, asserted. When Strikes and lockouts affect the public welfare it is the sacred duty of the State to interfere. The Kansas court has been in operation two years and 10 months It has made 45 decision^ affecting thousands of men and of these 43 have been accepted* by both sides. Early decisions increasing^ the wages of workingmen from 33 pef cent to 37 per c&it in some instances were accepted as were later conclusions reducing wages from 11 per cent to 17 per cent. Cannot^Be Enforced. As the second speaker for the nega tivef Ralph 0*Tpole declared that if the Industrial court plan were adopted nationally:, it/could never be enforced as it would\affect 75 per cent of'_tUe population. in\ Kansas, he assertM that Governor Allen had found it i»n possible, to arrest all of the striking Qpal,,'miners who violated the ~*la^ The Industrial Court law was xraot needed^in.

The robbers were professionals. So liesurely did they work that it was daylight before they got around to blow the safe aside of the vault. Although placing a charge of nitro-r glycerin at the safe door they were evidently afraid they did not have sufficient time to blow it. The safe contained about $3,000, according to Henry Johnson, Cashier of the bank. Park Car Near Haystack.
