The two hunters recalled that they were several miles from their car and two deer carcasses would be a lot to drag. Then they decided to make the remaining animal walk himself to death and save them the trouble. Being unable to disintangle the living from the dead deer, they cut off the latter's horns, leaving them dangling on the other's head. They had no rope, therefore led the animal by the horns. It was a difficult task they said, because the Henry Norman returned to his buck, though tired from fighting, was home in Pine River Sunday evening, far from dead.

Ivan Miller Dean of the North Central Bible Institute Minneapolis, will speak in the evening. The village election which was held at the local armory on Tuesday of this week, drew one of the smallest votes in the history of Pine River. A total of 27 ballots were cast with little or no opposition. 85 voters went to the polls last year. Evidence that the taxpayers of the village are well satisfied with the present administration is shown in the fact that all old members that were up for re-election were unanimously elected. Also the new councilman, L. W. Isensee was elected without any opposition. Judges for the election were Mrs. W. J. Webb, Mrs. Clyde Townsend, Clarence Siefert and W. C. Cromett.

Thompson Twenty-Two Twin Lakes Upper Dean Upper Hay As the result of 590 arrests in October by the Highway patrol of the Minnesota Highway Department, fines totaling $7,202.10 were imposed, it was revealed by the patrol's monthly report to N. W. Elsberg, state highway commissioner. For improper equipment, 140 drivers were arrested and 82 apprehended after going through "stop" signs. Drunken driving accounted for 44 of the arrests, careless driving for 65, speeding for 64. Revenue estimated at $4,526.05 was recovered for the state treasury during October by the license correction A step, and a long one at that, toward the fulfillment of a dream that Federal Dam has had for adequate school facilities is to be taken this week when a crew of 20 men will begin the first unit of a new building, size 55X64, built by WPA labor under the sponsorship of the Unorganized School District of Cass County. The Board is composed of Aaron Zaffke, chairman of the county board, W. T. McKeown, county treasurer, and J. W. Wickland, county superintendent of schools. To start the project, $6, 195 in federal funds has been allotted by the St. Paul office of Victor Christ gau, state administrator, to which will be added $2,284 by the District as a sponsor's initial contribution. The work now undertaken is limited to the construction of the basement walls and first floor slab. Continuation from that point will depend on available relief labor in the community and the continuation beyond July 1 of the WPA program. The complete project involves approximately $34,500, of which the sponsor's share will approximate $18,000, all of which will be used to provide materials and meet other than labor costs. The project was put into operation by A. T. Gilbertson, district director, on the assumption it will be completed as a WPA job but because of present limitations on the program, the restrictions outlined were necessary and were agreeable to the sponsor. patrol, bringing the total for 19'!7 to Nov. 1, to $212,247.08 in license fees collected, which otherwise would have been lost. In addition the Highway patro: gave first aid to 20 injured persons and attended 155 accidents din-in? the month. It helped 1,002 motorists by making minor ajustments and repairs on cars stalled on the highways, delivered gasoine to 166 automobiles and pulled 105 cars out of the ditches Traffic directions were given to 83,902 motorists. During October 7,826 drivers wore warned for infractions of the traffic code and illegal equipment tags were handed out to 1,645 persons. STATE'S ROAD FUTURE THREATENED BY U. S. AID SLASH PROPOSAL Warning that Minnesota's state highway improvement program faces almost complete shutdown by July 1, 1938, with disastrous results to community progress, road building and employment conditions in every section of the state, was broadcast by letter this week to the 436 members ot the state's 87 county boards by W. C. Minks, Secretary of the Minnesota Association of County Commissioners. Every county board in the state was urged to take immediate and vigorous action, demanding that Minnesota's delegation in Congress fight against the cancellation of federal! aid highway funds suggested by the President in his special message to Congress on November 30. At the same time the facts of this Impending crisis were pointed out by State Highway Commissioner Elsberg, in letters to each Minnesota Senator and Congressman.
