Old Time Fiddlers' Contest At Pine River Armory Saturday Nite, April 15 PINE JOURNAL VOLUME IV NUMBER 34 THE PINE iuVER JOURNAL, PINE RIVER, CASS COUNTY, MINNESOTA, FRIDAY,'APRIL 14, 1039 SUB. $1.00 In County, $1.50 onteltte IN CAPITOL MRIDORS By Lee M. Bennett Auction As the legislature goes into its final few days prior to adjourning, it is now certain that no new roads will be added to the state highway system this session. A few weeks ago I commented on this subject and stated then that it was quite evident that no action would be taken this year as that was the general report around the corridors. Several bills asking for added roads were introduced this session by members from various parts of the state. Among those were several from Senator Herreid and Representative Sawyer. These were for certain roads In Cass county as designated by the coun ty Commissioners, and included among others, the Pillager-Pine River road, road west of Pine River and the Woman Lake road. As stated before, though it is quite evident that no new roads will be added, both Senator Herreid and Representative Sawyer introduced bills ln case of the possibility of any additions at the last minute, cass county would then be in a position to ask for consideration which they would have received. There are many of us in Cass County who feel that we need more state highways. We should not be disheartened or give up the fight. When the legislature meets two years from now, <vs should again press this matter. Eventually the time will come when the highway department will feel that they can take on more miles, and when that time comes, Cass County citizens want to be on the job to get their needs taken care of. Aid To Walker Cemetery A bill introduced by Rep. Sawyer regarding aid for the Walker cemetery, has passed the House and is now awaiting action in the Senate. A large number of those who die at the State Sanatorium are burled in the Walker cemetery and for some time these graves have been neglected. The bill provides that the Sanatorium be directed to use employees to assist in the care of'and improving the cemetery. Educational Bills The educational appropriation bill passed the House last week and is now being considered by the Senate. It now appears that the regular state appropriation for schools will be prac- i tically the same in dollars and cents as last year, though a few special aids were added that will be of help to some districts in Cass County. I For several years, some $15,000 had been set aside to pay teachers ln Indian schools, practically all of which went to the Unorganized district. In-] advertently, this was left out of the| appropriation since 1935. Rep. Sawyer caught the error and it is again in the appropriation bill. Another bill appropriates $350,000 to distressed school districts, meaning those having an indebtedness in excess of 50 percent of the valuation of a district. In Cass County, the Pine River, Mildred, Remer and two country districts will be affected. Another bill alows increased aid to high school students in districts of 10 or more townships where pupils live more than ten miles from school. Tne present transportation aid is $36.00 per pupil for all pupils. The new bill increases the amount to $54.00 for tho longer hauling in such districts. An Auction Sale will be held at the R. H. Schmelzer fairm, 14- mi. west of Pine River on the Elwell. 3 miles south, 1-2 mile east and 1-4 mile west of the Elwell store, on Friday, April 14. 3 K.ad Cattle, 5 Head Horses, complete set of farm machinery and some household goods will be offered for sale.
