SISSKTON HIGH SCHOOL I
The local high school basket ball
teams wound up the season in good
fashion Friday nigl^ at the auditor
in in. by winning both games of a dou
ble header against the boys and girls
teams of Wmnot. Both games were
very interesting from start to finish.
The second team of Sisseton High
SChool starte dagainst the boys of
Wllmot, and at the end of a ten-min
ute period, stood 2 and 2, when they
were replaced by the frist team. Af
ter the first team went in there way
no doubt as to the outcome. When
the final whistle blew, the score was
22 to 14 in favor of Sisseton.
The game between the girls of the
two schools was also inteersting, and
breaking about even.
As these games closed the season
for the local teams, we might men
tion that they have made a very cre
ditable showing against all teams
played. At Aberdeen they were the
-victims of hard luck, but even then
resulted in a 12 td 4 victory for the
home team. In this game the local poses for which the funds can be

The state chairman must be elect

national committeemen. The dele

be elected by the people at the prim

Therefore, it is absolutely necessary
that tlie League go to the primaries

farmers of these idstricts is in favor
of building three new school build

the progressive spirit of the farmers,
but is it the wisest solution of the
problem of providing educational fa

I1KKCK STORM SWEEPS
Monday morning, a bad reac
tion of the beautiful weather we
have been having broke upon the
Northwestern states, causing dam
age and distress to all that lay in its
•pathway. Telephone and electric
lines fell before the heavy wind, and
as a result, Sisseton and other cities
were left devoid of electric power
and telephone service. Some of
the local business places suffered
damage in the way of broken glass
fronts. The melodious whistle
which has been our chief guide in
telling the time of day, and which
has spread the news of some tire so
often, followed suit. As a result,
folks will be late in going to work.
Some of the younger ones wil be late
in geling in at night, and we expect
things will be very much in a state
of heterogeneity until we can adjust
ouselves to the new conditions.

We want to remind you that
there is one little thing that requires

take no stock in the experience of

raised, get standard bred Poultry

help pay the Grocer.
Start right now to get some
good eggs for this year, do not stay
in the old rut another year.
