There has been much discussion of the girl's basket ball game here last Friday night, most of it rath er one-sided. It isn't \.n impor tant matter, and there has prob ably been enough discussion of it already. But we do want to sug gest that the question isn't one )f what the umpire may do under the rules. Of course he has autocratic powers. But it does seem to us that there are considerations of courtesy and hospitality, consider ations of chivalry, if you please, especially when the visiting team is composed of young ladies, and from a neighboring town that has always shown us the utmost cour tesy and friendliness, that should give them a little the best of the decisions rather than the reverse. PLOWING ALL THE YEAR A trip to the farm of the Great Western Sugar Co, just east of Belle Fourche will prove on eye opener to many. They have accom plished a large amount of plowing this fall, and these days while the ground is frozen until noon, they are using twelve big horses on a hree plow gang and are able to turn over several acres of ground during the aftenoon. Beet growing requires a proper preparation of! important things is fall plowing. hence the plowing during every hour the ground is not frozen.-* Belle Fourche Bee. i w 4 I the most important functions Bank is to assist our friends and customers, where either credit?* a4vk$is desired.

A few days later .they will be in Pierre in force to welcome the legislature when it assembles. They have an ambitious program in South Da kota and in the nation. Reformers are meeting in Washington to launch a drive on Congress for legislation to improve the morals of the Nation. Most of the reform societies and many church organ izations plan to to unite in the movement: "They regard this session of Congress," the announcement reads, "as unusuaily favorable for promotion of moral reforms as as there is no election for two years and party measures will na turally be postponed until Capitol and White House are in the hands of one party, leaving only left over appropriation bills to divide the time with such non-partisan welfare legislation as reformers desire." The chief items in the legislative programme are: Philip, Haakon County, South Dakota, Thursday, December 9, 1920 ^U"SL1LUL,U" *n\re .mnnH! formers intend to prevent if they can interstate transmission of gam messages and interstate inff the soil, and the one of the most ^"sportaUun ... of framing GATHERING IN THE fhis v n standardized reform literature in many languages a special infor mation department foi women voters in all lands, A (Ur^i woman lawyers.

CHRISTMAS SEAL SALE STARTS WITH A RUSH As the opening gun in the sale of Christmas the committee of Mitchell, headed by Mrs. A. U. Hoon, staged a sale of Health Bonds to all th local business firms and professional men.

It makes the heart of he mere newspaper man leap, because this means joy to a lot of the kiddies of Haakon ?ounty. The man who harvests i shapely green tree somewhere ilong the Cheyenne river to le transplanted to some home in this locality on Christmas Eve is a real benefactor of humanity. ^And just at this season of the year the gathering of Christmas trees is the greatest harvest inthe country. Literally train loads f, green trees are cut in our north em woods, some of them in o n ~vrr» Black IIm», uutl shipped 'o! the cities to make the hearts children glad. What would thousands of ki dies over this great land of it do without a Christmas tree? An.i incidentally, it might be admitt 1 more than one of the grownmw if the nation, sometimes with n faraway look in their eyes. recs'H •ng tho days of their youth On the Great Lakes "the Crist inns ship" bringing greenery from the upper peninsular of Michigan to Chicago or Detroit is usually! one of the latest events in navi gation each winter. In the north-1 eastern and lake states Balsam fir funishes the bulk of the Christ mas tree trade. In the south thej Praser fir is the favorite. In Col-] or&do and other Rocky mountain states, fir, though abundant, is' difficult of access and the lodtc°! pole pine and occassionally thej Douglas fir and Engiemann spruce ire used. On the Pacific coast the Christmas tree is often the white fir. Spruces vie with firs in popu 'firity as Christmas trees, but as a •ule in the south and west thov occur at high altitudes which make them difficult to get. PARENT-TEACHERS' ASSOC IATION WILL HOLD MEETING The Parent-Teachers Association of Philip will meet in the high school assembly room next Friday evening, December ^)th, at 7:30 o'clock. There will be a program and refreshments, The meeting will be devoted to a discussion of the problem.s of our school and a general exchange of ideas among parents, teachers, and members of the school board. Everyone inter ested in the development of the Philip school and the intelligent advancement of its work is invit ed to attend and take part in the meeting These meetings are only held once each month and do not con sume much time in a busy life, and it is respectfully suggested that every parent having children in the Philip school should attend this meeting, so that the entire ai embly room may be filled.

But I« I n o 'ess powr than the United States government through one impor tant branch of its system, has 'irmly and steadfastly set its foot ilt-wn unon so heartless a plan and the Christmas trees is still to ra diate its joy through many an Am erican home on the great n*tal -y. The United States uses annual ly between four million and five pillion Christmas trees, according to the estimate of the forest ser vice, United States department of agriculture. This equals approxi mately the combined consumption of England, Scotland and Wales, md is about 25 per cent greater than that of Germany. The Christ mas tree benrs practically the same fruit the country over, but he variety of the tree itself varies vccording to locality. The fir is undoubtedly the Christmas tree par excellnce, especially in the north eastern and lake states, on account of its long horizontal spreading springy branches, and deep greeji fragrant foliiage which persists 'onger than that of any other ever gpeen.
