LdwJit Saturday and Sunday were big
days in the Swedish Lutheran congre
gation of this city. On Saturday
evening,a Red River District Luther
League was organized. Delegates
from most of the congregations in the
district were present. On Sunday ser
vices were held in the forenoon and
the Holy Communion celebrated. In
the afternoon a large audience listen
ed to a sacred concert, and in the eve
ning a program was rendered by the
visiting delegates.
Ikis organization meeting was the
TaMlt of an action taken by the local
Lusher League some time ago. Warren
is regarded as the center of the new
Red River Conference of the Swedish
Lutheran Augustana Synod, and on
account of North Star College, all vis
itors were glad to come to this city.
The object of the District Luther
League will be to safeguard the inter
ests of the Lutheran church among
the young people and to exert an in
fluence for Christian fellowship. An
nual meetings will be held on invita
tions from congregations. The next
meeting will be held in Junoor July
when the organization will be perfect

The following officers were elected
to serve until the next meeting: Rev.
M. Hendrickson, Lancaster, president
Oscar Wahlund, Warren, vice presi

secretary Olof Bystrom, Vega, treas

John P. Mattson and Aimer Lindberg
were appointed to submit a proposal
for constitution at the next meeting.

freshments in the church basement

This orchestra took a prominent pant
during the meeting and received many
flattering comments.
It is reported the next meeting may

New Manager Here
-Lee W. Llewellyn, who succeeds M.
L. Larson as manager of the Farm
ens Co-operative Store Company, has
aratved and entered upon his work. He
is a genial gentleman with a wide ex
perience in -business affairs, and win
be a valuable, addition .to the list of
energetic business men of Warren. Mr.
Llewellyn comes from Wisconsin and
be expects his family to join him some
time tikis week.
a*. BnMds Machine Store
\j, Wm. Erickson is building a frame
g| machine ware house, 26x50, on the
corner formerly occupied by his office.
The rear of the building will be pro
vided with a cement floor, so that
r^r^" beavy machinery may be moved in
and out without fear of breaking thru.
The office will be located in a corner
of the building. Mr. Erickson's ma
chinery business has increased a
great deal during the past few years,
hence he found it necessary to provide
an up-to-date warehouse and office in
which to conduct it.
Warren Needs More Houses
There is great demand for houses
to rent in Warren. At least a dozen
more houses could be filled by fami
lies eager to move into them if they
could* be had. Will not some men
wiho have the money build a few
houses or a flat or two and thus help
Warren to grow? It would also be a
good investment.
Deer Hunters Out
Some of the Warren deer hunters'
are reporting success, while most of
them come back empty handed, but
with stories of what might have been.
Ed Natjwick writes from the woods
that he has a deer, and Albert John
son promises one from the vicinity of
Remidji. The Barnard brothers, D.
Farrell, A. Harris and Wk P. Powell
are among those who have visited the
woods and barely missed bagging a
bull moose apiece.

Singers Asked to Help Organize Chor-

Warren^ already' known as the city

its laurels next month, when a big

has been proposed for some time, and
as Warren has scores of excellent

is assured such a move would mean
It is proposed that work be begun on

Warren singers wild be held in the

A man who operates & soda foun
tain and ice cream stand was speak
ing the other day about prevailing ha
bits of extravagance in connection
with the cost of living.
He referred to certain young people
who come into his place regularly.
Some of them spend 25 cents several
times a week for ice cream and soda.
Formerly the soft drink habit was
largely confined to the hot weather.
The manufacturers of fruit syrups are
too clever to .allow their trade to
sleep nine months of the year. Drinks
move up in temperature as the ther
mometer goes down. The crowd of
youtfi and"mininery flutters constant-"
ly about the fountain of eternal fizz.
The friends referred to said of'his
certain knowledge that some of the
families represented by these spend
ing young people are heavily in debt
for groceries. He used his point to
contend that the "coat of living' is
largely a phrase gotten up by political
agitators. If people had a normal
amount of self restraint, the said, they
could live comfortably enough.
Without debating this somewhat
threadbare yet ever vital problem, it
may be remarked that present condi
tions give young people a lot of spend
ing money.. When they spend for
pleasure they should generously inv
elude friends. But they should spend
wisely, remembering loving and sacri
ficing parents as well as pretty girls
whose favor they wish to acquire.
It was, not so many years ago that a
boy who was just beginning work felt
rich indeed when he connected week
ly with a pay envelope providing him
with five cents an hour for his labor.
The boy of today usually expects
about $1 a day. He' may pay some
thing toward his board. But families
are compartively small nowadays. TJie
average workingman perhaps receives
no more towiard family expenses .from
his children than his father used to
The young man who is spending his
SI a week for soft drinks and other
treats for his girl and boy friends,
may come from a family tihat no long
er can afford to have meat once a day.
The fellow who does not follow do
cilely when his sweetheart leads him
toward the ice cream stand is always
called stingy. Perhaps it might be as
well to inquire whether he may not
'be paying a considerable board bill so
that a brother or sister can be educat
ed, and so that the older folks may
have food with some muscle in it

would traverse some of the best popu

railroad would be a boon to them as

Recent activities by the Soo line
may indicate an extended and improv
ed service on the Wheatline in the
near future. It is reported that the
company is making many roadbed im
provements and that heavier rails are
being put in. In this connection it
is rumored that another passenger
train, for coast service, may run thru
Warren late next year.
The activities of the company at
Fordvfle' indicated preparations for
heavy business in the near future. A
round house, which may accommo
date as many as twelve locomotives,
is being built, and a turntable is con
structed. It seems as if the com
pany "has something up its sleeve."
