The local freight train had to stop quite suddenly. Evidently the dri\ er had made a mistake and turned too soon on leaving the highway, -while returning home from a dance. His car was wedged in between the tracks at the switch division. The occupants crnsidered themselves very lucky as one headlight remained on, giving warning to the engineer which bled him to pull up his train. Members of the train crew hei ped the occupants of the car get their machine off the track, and then proceeded blithely on tl way. LOCAL PTA MET LAST FRIDAY EVENING MEANEST <MAN TAKES FOOD FOR CHARITY Moorhead.—The wo-Id's m est man has visited in Moorhead in St J-'hn's Episcopal Church, members of theguild had gathered together fruits, vegetables •and other delicacies worth shout $60 in their annual Harvest Home Festival.

Hedlund reportedtbat someone had broken in the dor at the south side cf the church and cleaned out the entire ■ -eol- lectrn. Considering the icy traveling: the splendid attendance at the November meeting of the PTA is very reassuring and shows a marked increase in the interest of the organization which isvery gratifying to the workers of the cause. The business meeting was followed by a program in keeping with Education week- Those in attendance we're privi- ledged to hear Mr. A. J. Linden render a group of vocal solos which were enjoyed by everyone. Miss Henderson, instructor in the n:rmal training department- gave a very interesting talk on "School and Country Life." Mrs F. R.

CONZET WILL AK HERE DEC. 9 Morris.—Hunting phe? sant° may be sport, but it's no> fun tn just sit in the car and wait while ones companions are enjoyin the shooting in a distant field At least the idea didn't anneal t" BiTy, 6-year old son of Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Voklen of Morris, and he proceeded to do something about it. Billy, with his dad and two other men, went afte1* some pheasants. Finding a likely hun ting ground, Bi.lv was instructed to remain in the car, parked out in the middle of the section, while the men hunted along a ditch and through a neighborin<- cornfield. An hour or so later when the men returned, to the car, Billy was gone. No great apprehension was felt until a search in the irrimediate vicinitv failed to locate him. Approaching dusk didn't relieve their worry. Inquiries at two farm homes brought no clue, and the men finally decided to drive into DonnelV. a short distance awav. to see if anvone there had seen Billv. A lad of bis description had been seen walking determinedly through town, thev learned, so the er-'Mio headed toward Morris. Half a mile down the road thev canght m-, with Billv. trudging h-^Hv homp- ward and c^mberinqf down int<"> the diteh ivli»nii-av ci fn- annr-.q ed.

CORRECTION Last week the Journal reported th ■ vould be here PTA meeting en Dec. 2., but the chairman of the program committee had confused the dates so we hope that everyone will read this correction, as Mr. Conzet will be the guest speaker on the regular meeting which will be held Monday, December 9th. Mr. Conzet will give an illustrated talk on Forestry work. Some time before the date of his ccming here details as to his real subject will be published. However in the meantime keep this date open and plan to hear a most vivid story of his work. Mr. Conzet is not a stranger to Fine River people as he was here some twelve years ago underthe auspices of the Eradelphian Club and th:se who recall his talk know that he will entertain his audience with interesting facts about our forests and the work of his department. Mr. Conzet. knows his subject and-will interest you sufficiently Jo forget the hard benches. NORMAN - PICKER FORTNIGHTLY CLUB MEETS A delieMf"l pa/ri^ w.°.s hel^ Mondav evening when Mrs. J. A.

ACCOMODATING PHEASANT SHOT, FALLS IN KITCHEN To' Arthur Martinson, Moorhead jeweler, goes the distinction of making the most extraordinary pheasant shot of the season.

A majority of the remaining thirty of the sixty six SERA participating counties are expected to take favorable action on the question as s"on as brought before them officially. HIGHWAY WORKERS READY TO BATTLE WINTER'S STORMS In every corner of the state, the Minnesota highway denart- me'nt is "digging in" for its annual battle with winter's snow storms. More-than 1,100 miles of snow fence is practically all in place. More than 200 big V plows are being attached to the department's heavy duty trucks. Fifteen tractor plows and twenty one rotary plows are tuned up and ready to force their way through deep drifts. Piles of gravel— more than 10,000 cubic yards are in strage, tic locations waiting to be spread on icy pavements. For mixing with this there is more than 100 tons of calcium chloride which helps the gravel to imbed itself firmly in the ice and tnus o- vide traction for slipping tires. Maintenance workers of the highway department must keep more than 11,300 miles "»_ sta'c highways open. During storms snow plow crews work continuously, night and day, until the roads arc clear. the premises and they themsel ,ves did not have'a gun. Getting permission to hunt in an adjoining field, a flock of pheasants were flushed and Martinsongave them a .salute, crippling one in the legs. The bird made a bee line for the farmer's house, a quarte of a mile away, and fell exhausted inside the kitchen door. Some shot. Some placement! McGRATH LAD SPROUTS POP CORN IN HIS EAR LeRoy Thomsen, son of Fred Thomson 'of the McGrath district, is practicng new methods SCHOOL NOTES An extra curricular activitv has been added to the highschooi in the form of a school paper.

The first basketball game of the season will be at the High School Gym on Friday, Nov. 22 This will be a double-header- the first game between the Notrmai Training Team and the High School 'A' team. Thesecond, between two girls teams of the Pine River High School under the direction cf Miss Hanson. On Wednesday afternoon Mrs. Olive Dahl, former postmaster of Pine River, gave a short talk on "Postal Service" to* the English II class. It is hoped that groups and individuals interested in the beautification of property fronting trunk highways will avail themselves readilly of the services offered by the roadside development division of the State Highway department. As pointed out by commissioner Elsberg, Minnesota as a a great tourist state has a stake in the attractive appearance of its roadsides to visitors. The highways are the vestibules and avenues of approach to our cities and recreational regions. Accordingly they should appear at their best advantage at all times. Tourists have time and again been struck by the incongruity of such eyesores as ugly billboards and unkempt and dilapidated hot dog stands anl gasoline stations along the highways traversing regions of natural scenic beauty. For est hetic reasons a road should "tie in" with the landscape through which it runs and forsafety reasons there should be as few signs as possible along the way to distract the attention of the motorist from his driving. Trees, shrubs and flowers rather than junk piles and ash- heaps are the proper roadside emellishment for Minnesota hi- ways. Those who are interested in futhering such beautification have a helpful ally in the roadside development division of the State Highway Department.— St Paul Dispatch U. S. AUTO TAXES 30 PER CENT LESS REBEKAH MEMBERS VISIT BRAIN'D LODGE REYNOLD MARTINI PLACES FIRST AT LIVESTOCK SHOW Monday evening, Mesdames Lewis Walton, Arvid Lundin, Ernest Robideau, Ollie Dahl, and Alice Amy motored to Brainerd, where they visited the Brainerd" Rebekah Lodge. Mrs. Walton made this her official visit there as District President. Mrs. Cora Deiter, of Rochester, Minn., Assembly President, and Past Assembly officers, Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Haymaker of Motley, Minn., were speakers of the evening. The members report a very instrutive meeting besides a very pleasant social time. The Minnesota motorist pays nearly thirty per cent les5 in motor vehick taxes and license fees than the average American automobile owner, according to a tabulation by the American Association of State Highway Officials, received by the Minnesota Highway Department. Considering license fees and gas taxes alone, four states have a lower average charge to the motorist than Minnesota. Two of these four, however, assess personal property taxes on automobiles which brings their total taxation of the motorist higher than the Minnesota figures. Thus in total average automobile taxation, 45 states are higher than Minnesota and only two, Kansas and North Dakota are lower. "HOORAY FOR LOVE" SHOWN AT MARLOW If you can make audiences tap their toes to a tune, you have a hit. That's the opinion of Bill Robinson, the dusky tap dancer who is a headliner in RKO Radio's musical hit, "Hooray Love," with Ann Sothern Gene Raymond. Robinson says "Hooray _.. Love" is tops because it brought about foot taps when he saw it at a preview 'on the coast. The number "I'm Living in a Great Big Way" brings Robinson and Jeni LeGon together in a fast stepping number. for and for FALL SEASON MOST DANGEROUS OF YEAR STATE PATROL WARNS BACKUS Word was received by radio of farming, with somewhat in-[over WCCO that Reynold Mar- different sucess so far. While in a playful mood recently, he placed a kernel of pop-corn in his ear. Though it would not shake out, he overlooked mentioning if to his parents until he experienced a little annovance which bordered on the painful. Investigation showed that the kernel had sprouted nicely and was and was preparing to soring forth in acres of well developed corn. Dr. Wahlberg was called and theseed transplanted to a roomier location on the farm, where it is understood to be doing nicely. Try A Want Ad tini took first place in his class- with his Naragansett Turkeys. He carried away honors at the Pine River Cass County Fair, at the State Fair, and now has won highest honors at the-Northwest shows. Reynold is a member ot the Pine River' Junior High School.

Francis and son Ralph spent Sunday at the J..H. Bloom home. Jeff Saunders made a business trip to Brained and Walker last week. J. W.Bailey and Aaron Zaf- ke were among those from here that attended the taxpayers meeting in Walker Saturday. Mrs. T. H. Francis spent the week-end visiting at the home of her son-in-law and daughter. Mr. and Mrs. Corbin Darby in Minneapolis. Quite a number from around here went to Mildred Sundav evening where they enjoved the music of the Nevis Gospel String Band. Cclds and lumbago seem to be quite a common ailment around here. Some are kent busy with a handkerchief, while others are, or should be using a cane. William Codner had the misfortune of tipping over his saw- rig last week, breaking the belt pulley and bending the arbor- The rig started slipping on the icy road and over it went. The WPA started work last week on the road around Pine Mountain Lake. There are about thirty men working on this project. They also started work on the telephhone line west of Backus; fifteen men are employed 'on this project. Bud Jimmerson had the misfortune of having the rear end of his car struck by the south bound freight last Thursday.The car was quite badly damaged but not beyond repair. Mr. Jimmerson received a few minor cuts and a good shaking up. The ] cause of the accident was blam- Late fall and early winter is the most dangerous season of the year, for motorists using the state highways, according to officers of the Mi-i'nesota highway patrol. In proportion to the number of vehicles on the roads, more accidents happen at this season than any other part of the year. and consequently greater caution is required of drivers, said J. P- Arnoldy, chief of the patrol,. In a warning statement to motorists. "Fog and poor visibility, frost, sleet, icy spots and slippery wet leaves, test the motorist's judgement," Summer speeds cannot be maintained when winter conditions begin. Every fall when the first sleet and ice form on the pavements, scores of motorists skid into ditches and are hauled out for the hospitals and morgues because they drive too fast. "Slow down," be sure your brakes lights and other safety devices are in good condition. Check the motor exhaust to see that carbon monoxide gas cannot leak into the body of the car, A little of this gas may numb the senses just enough to slowup the body's re-actions to road dangers. In old cars especially, il is wise to leave a window slightly open. Above all, when roads are treacherous, SLOW DOWN! ' COKATO BOY DISCOVERS NEW FUEL GAS AT MAC. Harold Ohlgren, son of the Co- kato veterinarian, and William Mahle, St Paul, seniors at Mac- alister college, after months ot experimenting, feel that they have developed a method whereby a gas can be produced from clover. The boys say the gas could be produced cheaply and used economically. The overhead in manufacture is little and it produces carbon as a by-product. The carbon can be turned back into the manufacture by using it as fuel. It would be possible to produce 2,500,000,000 cubic feet of the gaseous hydrocarbon from three thousand acres of clover.—Annandale Advocate.
