The three-shell limit placed on auto-loading and repeating shotguns will take effect for the first time this fall. New regulations provide that duck hunters may use a shotgun only, not larger than 10-gauge, shot from the shoulder. Federal regulations prescribing means by which wild waterfowl may be taken limit the use of "a blind, boat or floating craft of any kind" to locations "not more than than 100 feet from the shore line as determined by ordinary high tide or, where there is continuous natural growth or vegetation extending Farewell Party For Dr. Billion Mrs. J. J. Killion, who is shortly to ieave Pine River, was honored at a farewell party given by the Fancy Work Club on Saturday afternoon. The party was held at the home of Mrs. F. L. Hempstead on Norway Lake. Bridge was the diversion of the afternoon, followed by a delightful tea. At the close of the affair, Mrs. Killion was presented with a lovely gift as a memento of her association with the club Mr. And Mrs. King Injured In Accident William King, driver of the Fifty Lakes mail route, suffered scratches, contusions and four broken ribs, and Mrs. King sustained light injuries when their car rdlled 90 feet after a collision at the Two-Mile crossroads east of Pine River, Tuesday afternoon!. Mr. King's Oldsmobile sedan was struck by a Chevrolet driven by Miss Loretta Leary, 1217 Selby Ave., St. Paul. Mr. King was driving east and did not see the car approaching from the north. The force of the collision. caused his car to turn over several times, finally landing on its side about 90 feet from the point of collision. Neither Miss Leary nor her companion', Florence Miller, also of 1217 Selby Ave., St. Paul, was injured in the accident. Damage to Miss Leary's sedan was slight, the bumper taking most of the shock. Mr. and Mrs. King were treated at the Holman hospital. EXHIBITS AT FAIR FAR ABOVE AVERAGE Inclement Weather Holds Crowd Back For The First Two Days FIRE HAZARDS Some of the most tragic fires in American history have occurred in schools. Thousands of children have been cremated, and thousands more have carried the marks of disfiguring burns through life — because schoolhouses were improperly constructed, inefficiently protected, or inadequately equipped with fire escapes, staircases and fire doors. The lessons of the past have had relatively little effect on the present. Survey after survey, conducted by responsible experts have demonstrated that hundreds of. shools are fire traps. And these schools are not all in the "little red schoolhouse" classification—some of our handsomest and most superficially modern institutions of learning contain great and unnecessary dangers. The National Board of Fire Underwriters, representative organization of the nation's principal stock fire insurance companies, carries on an aggressive campaign ini the interest of safer schools. When possible, it makes inspections school buildings, and offers suggestions for Changes and additions— often National Board experts have pointed to serious and unnecessary hazards which had been overlooked for years. And, beginning last year, it widened its field of action by issuing self-inspection blanks for schools, whereby any capable school official can systematically check the buildings and equipment involved, discover dangers and inadequacies, and make or suggest the necessary corrections. The blank, which has been adopted and officially approved by the National Association of Public School Business Officials, is to be sent this year to 1,700 secretaries and presidents of boards of education and fire chiefs in cities of 5,000 and over. Officials in smaller towns can doubtless obtain the blanks from the National Board1 on request. The school building which houses your child may be a menace to his life and health, spect it—and make it safe, communal activity could more important. In No be beyond such shore line, not more than 100 feet from, such growth or vegetation protruding above the surface of the water at the time of taking such birds.' (Continued on page 5) Unseasonably cold weather failed to keep the crowds away ifrom the Cass County Fair on Monday and Tuesday of this week. The crowded program of entertainment was • followed through with complete satisfaction to all participants and patrons. .Entry day was quiet for every one but the exhibitors and exhibit superintendents. However, Tuesday, 4-H Club day made up for any lack of activity on the opening day. Although the results of the various contests are not available in full, it is safe to say that a more satisfactory series of exhibits and demonstrations has not been seen ini any Cass County Fair previously. According to Mr. Fred Graf el- man, leader of the Cass County 4-H Clubs, the activities centered in the new annex dedicated to 4-H organizations are of great significance. This is the first occasion of county-wide 4-H Club organization. 20 clubs and 716 members are participate ing as one unit in this program of demonstration and exhibit. Mr. Grafelman, superintendent of all 4-H activities, states that Pine River and the immediate vicinity are well represented in the list of winning 4-H exhibitors. The Pine River 4-JH Club car-' ried off first honors in the One Act Play Contests with the/r timely farce, "Winnin' Pa." Federal Dam was runner-up with "On The Air." Mixed entertainment contests was won by the Remer 4-H. Winners of first place in various contests and exhibits are as follows: Dairy Calf, Lorraine Hauggard, Pine River; Pigs, Chester Martini, Pine River; Sheep, Reyonld Martini, Pine River; Market Sheep, Roman Mohs, Pine River; Dairy Livestock Judging, Lorraine Hauggard; Canning, Scenia Livgard', Remer; Bread baking, Elvina Backstrom, Remer; Sewing; Style Review, Lorraine Mohs, Pine River; Exhibit, Rita Hass- er, Pine River; Thrift Sewing, Nellie Locke, Remer; Camming Exhibit, Lorraine Mohs, Pine River; Crop and Livestock Team Demonstration, Wallace Pomp- lin and Douglas Erickson, Pine River. These winners and those of the unreported contests will go to the State Fair next week. Reports on county exhibits are not available for some time. A general idea of the exhibit is to be obtained, however, from statements made by various exhibit superintendents and judges. D. T. Grussendorf, of Grand Rapids, states that the poultry exhibit is the finest he has seen this year in any fair, and the best seen in five years' judging at the Cass County Fair. Mr. Grussendorf also said that the 4-H Calf, Sheep and Hog exhibits were exceptional and show better preparation than the open class stock, generally speaking. O. W. Swensoni of Grand Rapids, judging crop exhibits, remarked that the exhibit this year is smaller than usual, but of better than average quality. Mrs. R. L. Donovan, judging domestic science work, made, a similar observation concerning this division of exhibits. Mrs. Harry Hill, superintendent of baked goods and canned fruits exhibits, also remarked that in her department, as well as in other parts of the main building, exhibits were smaller than usual, but of better quality. Mrs. Webb, supervising needlework, flower exhibits, and art, states that the needlework showing is up to standard, but that the other two exhibits need encouragement, since entries are very few in number. Prominent in Wednesday's program was the two-act Musi cal comedy, "A Bold Front," presented under the direction of Mrs. Ollie Dahl, assisted by El- nora Rode. A cast of ten principals, assisted by eight chorus girls presented a very entertaining matinee and an evening per- iformance. A highlight of the entertainment program was the appearance of the Bemidji Junior Drum Corps under the direction of Gertrude Sherwood Ness This Drum Corps is a high- ranking organization, having carried off honors in several competitions. Perhaps the biggest single drawing card in Wednesday's schedule was .the free barbecue dinner held at noon, which was served to an immense crowd. A complete change of program for each day of the Fair kept patrons interested and provided real value for the money. Carnival attractions were well patronized by the -crowds, including people of all ages. The introduction of so many events featuring local people no doubt aided in swelling the gate receipts, also. Aside from the striking exhibits, unusual in such a delayed growing season, the most satisfatory angle on the whole exposition is probably the great interest shown by the younger exhibitors, contestants and patrons. The future success of _ such county institutions lies principally in arousing a sincere interest in those who are only now beginning to have a part in them. Farm-Labor Picnic Sunday There were about four hundred people in attendance at the Farm Labor picnic held at Whi- pholt Sunday. Marian LeSeur, noted woman speaker gave the address. She spoke o.ni Rural Electrification, a project that is being carried on throughout the state. In addition to this there were four acts of Vaudeville, Tug-of-war and other amusements. The Walker band furnished the music for the day. HIGHWAY PATROL JOINS WAR AGAINST SPEEDING The state highway patrol, which for years was prohibited by law from making arrests for speeding, has now joined forces with other safety agencies in an effort to reduce dangerous speed on the highways. N. W. Elsberg, state highway commissioner, announced today that after a study of legal points involved, he has ordered the patrol to treat excessive speed in the same manner as other traffic law violations. John P. Arnoldy, chief of the patrol is working out detailed plans for his men to follow in combatting the speeders who menace other traffic upon the trunk system.. The state legislature of 1929, in creating the highway patrol, expressly prohibited the patrol from enforcing speed laws. Succeeding legislatures followed the same policy. This year, however when the legislature gave added police powers to the patrol, it o- mitted from the law the words which previously protected speeders. "The way is open for the patrol to prosecute speeders, and we have determined to exercise that authority," Chief Arnoldy said. "Modern motor cars are capable of such tremendous speeds that greater regulation is imperative to reduce the traffic killings on our public highways." On the open highway, outside of built up sections, school zones and other special situations, the state law provides that any speed over 45 miles an hour constitutes prima facie evidence of driving faster than is reasonable. That is, a person arrested for speeding on the open road, if going faster than 45 miles an! hour, would have to prove to the court that his speed was reasonable and not endangering other users of the highway. "We are not going to set 45 miles an hour as a speed limit," said Mr. Arnoldy. "The patrolmen will be instructed to exercise their judgment and make arrests for high speeds in accordance with traffic conditions and other surrounding circum stances." A conviction for speeding will make the motorist liable to imprisonment for up to 90 days, or to a fine of up to $100.

MINNESOTA NEWS BRIER HAS TWO FISH TO MOUNT INSTEAD OF ONLY ONI Detroit Lakes—'One proud an] gler from North Dakota got a iit-J tie more than he expected when he took a 25 pound Northerr pike to Judge Andrew OxtraJ Ponsford, to be mounted. Th« judge is an expert taxidermistJ and dees a great deal of thisl work during the summer. Ini dressing the large fish fori mounting, the judge discovered! in its gullet a walleyed pike almost 14 inches in length, whichl apparently had been swallowed J just before the fish was himself j caught. Without instructions from the angler, the judge .mounted both fish so that the North Dakotan will have a far more interesting exhibit than he ] had anticipated. SLEEPING SICKNESS HITS WILKIN HORSES Breckenridge— Sleeping sickness in horses has been reported ini Wilkin county. First symptoms of the disease, caused by a virus, are that the horse slows down in work, stands by himself with drooping head' in the pasture, and leans against the stall. Later it is almost impossible to rouse the horse, and almost every case is fatal. Serum treatment usually saves the horse in 50 per cent of the cases. METEOR PROVES TO BE FINE FERTILIZER Mantorville—Numerous fragments of a strange rock found early this spring have produced an unusually heavy crop of grain on the farm of -Oscar Safety-sea: Manitorville. Early in the year Suhr brought in specimens of the rock pieces which were scattered over an area of perhaps 100 feet in diameter. It was believed that a meteor which had not entirely burned out in the stratosphere struck the earth at that point, scattering numerous rocks about. Along with a crop of barley that field was seeded to clover. The clover and barley grew very rank in that spot, and while in other parts of the field the grain was crinkled and' lodged, it stood up strong and straight in the spot where the unusual rocks were scattered'. TENNIS COURT NEARING COMPLETION Work on the tennis court, located on the school grounds is completed, save for the erection of fences. The court was started last spring as a PWA project and abandoned because of lack of funds this summer. Several young men of the community have banded together and donated their labor during the last few weeks to complete the project. The tennis court, which is 112 feet long and 47 feet wide, was finished Tuesday morning, and wil soon be available for play. It is a decided advantage to the community to have this court finished, and much credit is due the young men who volunteered their efforts to provide this athletic facility for the town. MERRY-GO-ROUND WRECKS STEEL, CONCRETE BRIDGE Red Lake Falls—The Lost river was found by a lot of people over the weekend when a merry- go-round loaded on a big trailer was too heavy for the steel bridge on U. S. Highway 59 and the whole structure caved in. The truck that broke the camel's back was one of a number used to transport the Nennies Bros, carnival which was enlroute from Thief River Falls to Mankato. Some of the trucks had passed safely over the bridge which wa& of the steel girder type on concrete abutments, but the big semi-trailer carrying the merry- go-round hit the bridge, it went down and only one wheel of the semi-trailer remained on the road. Three men. were riding in the motor cab, two of whom were onlv slightly injured' but the third was taken to the hospital for treatment. A wrecker came down from Thief River Falls and worked all day extracting the truck. It was a difficult job and one that people from miles a- round came to witness. Prison Finances Over in Michigan criminals are not only confined to prison, but those who have money are made to pay their own keep. Recently Michigan's Auditor General filed a claim against the $250,000 estate of one prisoner- for $464 for meals calculated at 72 cents a day for a period of a year and a half. If this prisoner "Who was committed for murder, serves his full 24-year term, his board bill will total $55,260. CHOPSTICKS Six of ten pheasant eggs, left in the back room of a hatchery at Balaton, hatched out into healthy youngsters. * * * After several people had been hit by golf balls while standing on No. 5 tee at the Albert Lea golf course, a netting has been erected half way round the tee to protect those waiting to drive at that point. * * * Okabena men ran down a gypsy band and recovered' $30 which had been stolen from William Gehris in that Village, the pursuit lasting several miles. * * * Alvin Rounds and Harold Jaeger, 19 and 18 (Continued on page 8)
