IONIA COUNTY'S BEST NB
BELDING, MICHIGAN, WEDNESDAY AFTER
COMMITTEE DECIDES
TO ABANDON ""
II
COUNTY
.SECRETARY'S RIGGEST JOR WAS
COLLECTING IN ENOUGH
MONEY TO RUN ON
At a meeting of tjie county Y. M.
C. A. committee which was held in
Ionia last week. It was decided to
abandon the work in this county un
til such time as the people show they
want the work taken up again and
also show that they are willing to
go ahead and contribute sufficiently
and cheerfully enough so that the
work can be carried on without the
members of the committee person
ally going good for every dollar ex
pended. f
The recent resignation of Sec. Roy
LeValley brought matters to a head
and when the committee met to de
cide on a successor to Mr. LeValley,
they decided there would be nothing
doing at all. The members of the
committee realized that unless they
had the moral and financial support
of the people behind them in this
work it could not be the success it
should be and from the way the con
tributions and pledges have been paid
of late, it was quite evident that
the -desired and necessaijr support
was lacking.
Mr. LeVallev, who has acted as
secretary for the past two years was
n verv efficient person in the office,
but it got so that he had to put in
most of his time collecting money
with which to pay his salary and the
regular work suffered because of the
collection work entailed. This part
of the job was the most distasteful
to Mr. LeValley and was his prin
cipal reason for resigning.
Theie are many who pledged and
have not taid and then there are
many in th county who thought that
they were not getting results for
their money and would not pledge
further monev for the work. Some
thought that' for the money raised
in their town, more should be ex
pended and when their wishes were
rjit gratified, lost 'imtarest Kr op-
pr d the work.
If after some time the demand for
a resumption of Y. M. C. A. work
should seem to indicate that enough
people are again interested, the
committee will re-organize and make
a new start.
To Give Opposition
The Republicans of Otisco town
ship who have had everything just
about their own way for several
years, their Democratic brothers be
ing too small in numbers to offer
any great resistance and failing to
put up a ticket, are going to have
an opposing ticket in the field this
spring, an amalgamation of dissat
isfied Repubs and the Demos having
got together and decided that they
will put up a ticket under the head
of the Peoples Party. They will hold
their caucus at Lyceum hall, Smyr-
na, on Monday evening, March 13.
The Republicans will hold their cau
cus at the same place on Saturday
evening, March 11.
Announcement
A motion picture will be shown at
the Belding High school under the
auspices of the Parent-Teachers club
March 9th, entitled "Betsy Ross".
The proceeds are to go toward new
play ground equipment. Everybody
is urged to come out and help make
this a success. . Matinee after school
in the afternoon and at 7:00 in the
evening.

TIFICJE OF TITLE
LESS THAN ONE-HALF OF OWN
ERS HAVE SECURED THE
NECESSARY PAPERS
The Secretary of the state has is
sued notice that the law regarding
certificates of tit'.e to autos will be
rigidly enforced after July 1, 1922.
It behooves every auto owner to get
his certificate at once. Delay may
mean a fine.
There are approximately In the
State of Michigan over five hundred
thousand a'utomolriles. The Certifi
cate of Title Law enacted by the
Legislature of 1921 was given effect
July 1st, 1921, and as directed by
the Law, Department of State mail
ed to every owner of an automobile
in the State of Michigan, an appli
cation blank to be filled out and re
turned to Lansing with a fee of one
dollar.
In spite of a continuous publicity
campaign and the fullest coopera
tion from the Branch Managers, the
Secretary of State has received ap
plications for only two hundred and
twenty seven thousand! Titles-, to
date.
Onlv July 1st. 1922, the law goes
into full effect and will be enforced
and it will be impossible for an own
er of an automobile to secure a li
cense for his car unless he can show
Title for same. It will be against
the law for anyone to drive his car
after July 1st. without a Certificate
of Title. Do not wait until the last
minute to send in your application.
If you do it will mean delay as all
applications must be checked, cor
rected and indexed before Titles can
be issued. You must have the Title
in your possession before July Is.
We have the blanks at this office
and can help you get your certificate
of title at any time.
Be sure and attend to it before it
is tco late.

working to make it a success, it is
now put up to the public to see
whether or not they have made a sue
cess of the "Merchant cf Venice Up-To-Date"
-which is the name of the
play they are presenting. The sen

A. N. BELDING CROSSES
OCEAN IN AEROPLANE
We clip the following from the De
land (Florida) Daily News, of Feb
ruary 22. Evidently our friend, Mr.
Belding, was so glad to get back to
the United States that the aeroplane
was none to swift in bringing him
back.
The article is as follows:
"A. N. Belding and secretary, Mr.
C. C. Warren of Rockville, Conn., re-
j turned yesterday for a .week's stay
at tne notei. ivir. tieiaing maKes me
College Arms his head quarters while
l n Florida and not enjoying
various auto tours through the state.
He had recently returned from Hava
na, Cuba, where he had the novel ex
perience of traveling from Havana to
Miami in an aeroplane and from there
to Deland in his car. Next week Mr.
Belding plans to make an auto trip
down the west ..coast."
Well. Mr. Belding, we'll have to
admit that stunt is pretty foxy for
a youngster crowding the 90 year
mark.

Perry Crankshaw is patenting a

vented and which he is of the belief
will very nearly revolutionize the
concrete building business of the
country. Mr. Orankshaw has manu
factured a concrete brick so that it is
possible to plaster directly on the
surface of the brick, making the use
of lath or other like device unneces
sary. He has applied for a patent
and the organization of a company
for the manufacture of the brick is
contemplated. '

Announcement was received at
this office from the head offices of
the Pere Marquette system to the
efle.t that they were going to start
in a new time and tiain schedule
on Sunday. March 5 and among the
numerous changes which would go
into effect at that time would be the
withdrawal of four trains from the
two divisions which pass through
this city.
The trains which are to make their
last run on Saturday and which will
then be pulled out of the service
will be the two trains commonly
known as the afternoon flyers, leav
ing this city at 2:37 bound for Sag
inaw and leaving at 3:10 bound for
Grand Rapids. These trains have
r.hvtys been popular with local peo
ple and while they were fairly well
patronized by the public, they have
not been carrying enough passeng
ers to p ay for their operation. They
have, however, been taken off sev
eral times before, once for lack of
patronage and once on account of a
coal .shortage, but they were later
on nut back again.
The most radical change in the
schedule is the taking off of the
tiain which leaves here at G:M in the
morning and running to Howard Ci
ty and Rig Rapids and the same
train which makes the return trip
in the afternoon, leaving here at
1:13. These two trains have served
the people in a territory reached by
no other railroad and their cancella
tion will be keenly felt. While motor
buses operate locally, there is a
large territory served by these two
trains which 4will feel the cut in ser
vice very keenly.
Justice Reed Performs Marriage
A quiet marriage ceremony took
place in the office of Justice Reed on
Tuesday at 1:30 when Miss June
Martin of this citv was united in
marriage to John M. Dennis, of Ed
more. The bride came to this city
about six months ago, having met
Mr. Dennis before coming here. Mr.
and Mrs. Dennis left immediately
for their home in Edmore after their
marriage. This, however, was Jus
tice Reed's first wedding but he
seemed not in the least excitel over
the event.
New Fire Equipment
The city has purchased a new Ford
truck and is remodeling it over into
a new auxiliary fire truck. It will
be loaded with chemical apparatus
and in case of fire will be sent out
on the first alarm and will be fol
lowed by the big truck and equip
ment in case the job is too big for
the chemical. The new truck will
also be used for calls in the sur
rounding country, thus affording fire
protection to the city at the time
part of the equipment is out in the
country.

Dr. James G. Greggerson
While in their office recently, Mr.
Dimmick asked the writer to go with
him and sec what they were doing.
In their main shed, I found that they
had installed a motor driven rip
saw on the west side of the drive
way. While in this shed, I was at
tracted by th unusually large scock
of lumber and building material, the
asphp't shingles and roofing rooms
containing nearly three car loads.
From the main shed we went ov
er to where they have recently com
pleted a sidetrack, which extends
south by their iron covered ware
house which we found filled with lime
wood fibre, plaster, gypsum, stucco,
Portland cement, mortar color, plas
ter board a,-id fancy face brick tor
fire place.? and chimneys.
Leaving this shed, we continued
down '.he sidetrack where we found
large pi'es of lumber, which had been
unloaded direct from the cars, and
whk-h later will be distributed ard
piled in the sheds, ready for use the
cominir summer, which is predicted
by many as an unusually good sea
son for building in Relding and the
.-urrounding country.
The improvement that interested
the? writes most was the rebuild in."
of their planing mil building, which
tr.ey are remodeling into a modern
warehouse and lumber shed, they
having removed most of the ma
chinery, keeping only four or five
'small machines, which they have
nicely arranged, in a room parti
tioned off for a shop where they will
do what they term odd work. The
balance of the room on the west side
of the driveway, which extends the
entire length oi" the building, and
opens to the north end on Main street
is being partitioned otf into rooms
for knockdown window and door
frames, sash windows and doors,
screen doors and windows, cupboaid
doors, interior fini.-h and moulding'
On the east side of the driveway
theie will be a room for glass and
nutty, screen wire, and nails. Tne
balance of the east side will be used
for the better grades of lumber, such
as oak, birch, yellow pine and cypress
Doth A. S. Dimmick and Harry
Dimmick inform us that it will take
until the middle of April to complete
the improvements and arrange the
stock, but when the same is complet
ed, they would consider that they h;)d
as modern a yard and sheds and as
complete a stock of building material
as can be found in this part -of the
state; and that they will be beter
situated to serve the building public
than ever before. For the next few
weeks 'u will find their ad on the
last page of this issue.
At least six proposed constitution
al amendments will appear on the
ballots given to the voters of Mich
igan in the general election this
year.
Three )f them were initiated by
the VJ21 legislature, three will be
initiated by popular petition, the
forms already having been approved
by the department of state. The
proposed amendments, briefly are:
1o irnipvl all children within pre
scribed limits of age, to attend the
public schools.
To provide for selection of mem
bers of the state legislature upon a
strictly pro-rata population basis and
do away with the existing moiety
clause in the constitution.
To provide for an enlarged county
home rule. ;
To shorten the ballot by making
the office of superintendent of pub
lic instruction appointive rather than
elective.
To authorize the legislature to
enact a law providing for a state in
come tax.
To authorize the legislature to en
act legislation permitting excess
condemnation of land for parks,
boulevards and port districts.
The last three proposed lanlend
ments were initiated by the legisla
ture. The excess condemnation amend
ment would allow cities, within rea
sonable limitations, to condemn for
public purposes more than actually
is to be used.
The port district amendment would
give the legislature power to enact
legislation providing for the incor
poration of ports and port districts
along the state water fronts and
to confer upon the corporations pow
er and authority to engage in work
of internal improvements.
The income tax was perhaps the
most bitterly contested measure of
its kind in the last legislature. It
was adopted only after it had failed
on a previous vote. It stipulates that
with the consent of the electors, the
legislature may enact laws providing
for a uniform taxation, except on
property paying specific taxes.
"Provisions may.be made by law"
the proposed amendment continues,
"for a tax not to exceed four per
centum upon, or with respect to the
net gains, profits and incomes from
whatever source derived, which tax
may be graduated and progressive
and which may provide for reason
able exemptions."
The proposed re-apportionment
amendment, bv which members of the
legislature would be chosen on a
strictly pro-rata population basis is
permanent because the next session
of the legislature will be called upon
to re-apportion the statt-. Under the
ixisting moiety caulse in the consti
tution counties having more than a
moiety, about one-half of one per
cent of the state's population are
entitled to single representation. The
adoption of this method of appor
tioning members of the legislature
would be practically a death blow to
small counties and throw control of
the state legislature into the hands
of Wayne county.
The proposal to appoint instead of
elect the superintendent of public in
struction will be initiated largely
through the efforts of the Michigan
Teacher's association. It also will
undoubtedly have the support of the
present superintendent of public instruction.
