Upper ftfci Metrtst , Juntt 22, 1946 Hospital Cheaper Than A Fishing Gamp, Vera Finds Prank Vera has discovered that it is cheaper fo live in Canada, in a hospital, than in a fishing camp. Bui he still isn't willing io trade one for the other. Frank, Mr. and Mrs. Horace Clapsaddle and son Jackie, went into the far north several weeks ago. They had a lot of fun and caught a lot of fish — but then Frank caught the flu and had to be hospitalized from June 8 to 18th. He left a hospital run by the Sisters of Mercy at The Pas, after 10 days, and got a bill of $43, total. His daily room rent was $3. During his stay in the hospital he ran a temperature al one time of 105 degrees, and was still pretty weak, Monday, on his return. His son, Ted, Lloyd Pra,it, and Ed Oslrum drove up after him. The Clapsaddles had to return earlier, after first seeing that he was moved from the fishing camp to a hospital and well cared for, after the flu hit him. However, the entire party had one experience, prior to the illness, that was a highlight of the trip. That was a flight by amphibian plane 450 miles into the wilderness to God's Lake. Horace end Jackie, and Frank with five men from North Dakota, made the flight. They caught 120 walleyes in one afternoon, then started home. Flying back, however, they ran into a storm, and the plane had to make a forced landing on a lake, where they rode out the gale adjacent to Norway House, a trading post established in 1670.

Cfkise of the fire is now known. The Wallace family was away at that time,, but a hired man, Gordon Wallace, asleep in an upstairs room, awoke to find heat and flame nearly enveloping him. His feet were burned as he made his escape. From the Blockwenn farm he called the Fenton fire department, who immediately answered the call but were unable to save anything in the house. The Wallace family was visiting at Dows at the time. They have five children, ;md arc now staying at the parental Fred Kuecker home. The farm is owned by Ernest Votteler.

HEINE'S SUPER SERVICE ACCESSORIES - BATTERIES - TIRES * - * PHONE 798 On No 18; One Mile ffisf i>f 18-169 Corner Bert Baldwin Got It Back After 3 It took Ben Baldwin three veats io win back a dollar he lost In a bei back in 1945, but when the chance came, Bert came /through with a pound to spare, it all happened this way: Three years ago a friend of Burton Thorpe's, John Croisant of Muske-gee, Oklahoma, came to visit him. Mr. Croisant was quite a portly gentleman and Pearly Smith, who works for Thorpe, thought he could win a little money on Croisant's weight. So one afternoon, the three of them marched over to Norton's Lumber Yard and bet Bert a dollar that the Oklahoman outweighed Bert by 25 pounds. He took the wager and the party weighed-in on the Jack Sprat grocery scales. The result: Croisant, 315, Baldwin 275. And Bert lost his bet by 15 pounds. A few days ago, the man from Oklahoma returned for another visit. Of course, , Pearly saw another chance to win a dollar so off they went to see Bert. Bui this time to make the bet more sporty, Pearly spotted Bert 50 pounds. Again the Jack Sprat scales were used. Bert came through with flying colors. For Croisant lipped the gcal- cs at a mere 347 while Bert hit the 298 mark. The difference was 49 pounds and Bert - has his dollar back. We didn't find out if it was the same dollar.
