Roy rowed the boat, found a shallow spot ta the right of the main channel where Herb figured he'd like to hunt, found another spot across the channel for Reub, and then rowed farther up where he left the boat, planning to return later and pick the' boys up. About quitting time they-began looking for Reub and Herb, since Roy | had the idea all the time that they. could reach the boat. (Roy had joined some of the other hunters.) But Reub and Herb couldn't reach the boat. There they sat on each side of the river, a deep channel separating them from the boat. They shouted words of comfort back and forth until the. chill of evening had theiri to numb to move. Finally the other hunters in' the party decided to hire a motor boat and cruise down the river looking1 for the lost battalion. They found them, each huddled around his own fire, resigned to a night in the open. Were Roy's cheeks pink.

Dec. 2 COURT HOUSE CLOCK STOPS; BLAME PIGEONS Sleepy Eye.—The courthouse clock in Fairmont, faithful arbitor for time as far as its big hands can be seen, stopped at 12 minutes to nine the other morning and there wasn't anything wrong with the works either. Joseph Sharph, custodian, lays the blame on pigeons, dozens of them, who make their home in the courthouse tower. The birds, John explain ed, sit on the minute and hour hands and either stop the hands or interfere with their running properly. John threatened to turn pigeon hunter fo ra few days and has already borrowed a BB gun. The rollicking, humorous comedy packed full of mirth, amusing and exciting events in three acts, to be presented by the PTA under the di- .rection of Miss Isaacson, is sure to be 'a big hit of the year. :. .Mrs. Barlow, the boarding house keeper, played by Mrs. Cromett and ;her charming daughter, Miss Sielitz are well portrayed. Mr. Haskins, Clifford Gardner, does his best to ruin the tourist trade at the boarding 'house by erecting a huge board fence obstructing the view of her homo from the road. His plans are frustrated by Mr. Dougherty, and then the complications arise. The play is packed with laughable incidents and exciting events all through, assuring everyone a good time. Miss Hill, Miss Torske and John Haack take the main character parts. The art department at the school is working on outdoor scenery for the stage, which promises to lend a pleasing background for the play. Christ Hoffman returned to his home from the Brainerd hospital on Tuesday. Actual Deer Stories of '38 by Local Hunters "I got mine the first shot!" "I shot three times and then my gun jammed."

You knov there is Nothing more IMPORTANT THAN THIS BUY CHRISTMAS SEALS; IT'S A NOBLE CAUSE With the slogan "Protect your home from Tuberculosis," an army of more than 10,000 Christmas Seal workers start an intensive fund raising and educational campaign throughout the state Thanksgiving day. Leaders representing government, business, labor, church, and other groups have all endorsed the campaign. President Roosevelt says: "Our goal can be nothing else than the complete eradication of this scourge of tuberculosis from our nation. Through the power of the Christmas Seal everybody can help." Dr. Thomas Parran, U. S. surgeon general says: "It is essential that the present activities, made possible by the sale of Christmas Seals, be continued. Future effort against tubercu losis must be wide-spread and greatly accelerated." Arthur Hays Sulzberegr, publisher of the New York Times, says: "Once a year those of us who have escaped tuberculosis are brought face to face with its ravages through the efforts of the National Tuberculosis Association's Christmas Seal Campaign One cannot endorse such a campaign anymore than one can endorse decency, and light and cleanliness. One can-however-one must support it." William Green, president, American Federation of Labor, says: "In contributing to this cause we are not only extending a helping hand to those that have oecome victims of this dread disease, but we are arming ourselves against further inroads by tuberculosis among our people." Archbishop John G. Murray of St. Paul says: What has been achieved in the reduction of the rate of mortality from this dread disease is the most convincing recommenation for further co-operation by all the forces in our community to eliminate the White Plague entirely."
