A Good Paper In A Good Town" BREMEN, MARSHALL COUNTY, INDIANA, THURSDAY, JUNE 12, 1924. f Unsullied V ) r tr "Im BULLETIN Superior Chautauqua Talent Is Booked For Bremen, July 9-13 VOLUME 39 TOO MUCH JOHN OSWALT SPELLS GIANTSM)EFEAT Champion Colored Team Is Stopped By Greens In Season's Classic. Nine innings of superb pitching by Johnny Oswalt, supported by al-moft perfect baseball by his Green Sox mates, stopped the champion Chicago Union Giants, top notchers of the colored baseball clubs of the country, in their invasion of Sunny-side park Sunday. The score was f to 1, and it was as pretty a piece of pastiming as has been seen on the local lot. The Giants brought the fastest bunch of baseballers that has worked against the Greens this year. On Decoration Day the same outfit whipped the "big town" aggregation at South Bend, but they came here expecting a harder team to beat, and they found it. Both teams were a little nervous at the start. Oswalt started his long list of strike-outs by whiffing the dusky lead-off hitter, but Peters, the second man up, got on when Tom Touhey came in fast to field a slow roller and heaved it past rhilion. Peters took second on the play and scored a minute later on Goliah's single after Holliday had lofted to Bauerline. Byard fanned, retiring the side. After that Oswalt was absolute master of the situation. In spite of a little wildness, he struck out fourteen of the dusky Giants without walking or hitting a man. Some excellent backstopping by Bauerline added to Johnny's effectiveness, and the whole defense was almost flawtess. Bremen grabbed the lead in the second half of the opening round, taking advantage of three Giant er rors and Huff's timely swat. Wertz started it by getting punctured in the ribs. Philion laid down a nice bunt and was safe when Holliday shot to second too high to nail Wertz. Both advanced on a perfect bunt by Touhey. Edgren slapped a hot roller to Matthews and Wertz scootexi in safe when Holliday dropped the hot peg to the plate. Matthews committed his second offense when Britten grounded to him, filling the bags again. Huff's single scored Phi-lion, but Edgren was held at third. Hall was out on a fly to third, and the side was retired when Bauerline grounded to short, Huff being tossed out at second. After that the visitors got together avd put on a great exhibition of bast ball. Jackson had an abundance of stuff, but the Greens were on a batting spree and they slam-rml the ball hard and often. In the fourth inning-, after Hall was robbed of a hit by Clark's circus catch, Bau- ei tl- e arid Uswalt delivered saleties -t over the infield. Wertz brought 1oth in with a crash to the Ci !i a s er licld lence. 1 nuion got on n Thomas jugeled his roller for ton.d but Touhev hit into a siz- Continued on Page 8, Col 2 Nappanee Schedules Ten Games With the Greens A ten game series between the Nappanee Tigers and the Bremen Greens has been arranged by the managers of the two teams.

The old eagle will scream in the good old fashioned way in Bremen July Fourth, if the plans now under way go through as expected. The baseball club has taken charge of the affair, and will attempt to get enough encouragement aid financial support from the business houses and others to make the celebration a noisy reality. According to present plans, free attractions will be provided for the enterainment of the crowds that spend the day here. A band will be here to put on the patriotic music. The free acts on the street will keep things moving. Concessions will offer many ways to spond the time and a few nickels. In the afternoon the baseball game between the Greens and Warsaw will be the big attraction. Warsaw beat Bremen in their first battle, and the local club will beJ out to even up. After the ball game, a boxing show, with a program of three fast oouts, will be held at the basebab park. A .Michigan promoter is at work on the program for the attraction, and has guaranteed to bring three high class matches to the show. During the evening there will be a band concert and carnival on the streets. Solicitors from the baseball club management will start work on the project tonight, and unless they are disappointed in the way they a e. received, the plans will go th' a 2,0. a3 now arranged.- Bolt On Track Wrecks Train At South Bend A large iron bolt, placed on the track of the Grand Trunk railroad at South Bend by a five year old boy to see what would happen, caused the wreck of the International Limited Sunday evening. The big locomotive, tender and a refrigator car left the track and the engine plunged down from the trestle over St. Peter street, digging a hole five feet deep into the pavement. The train was running a-head of time and was creeping into South Bend at less than ten miles an hour, which accounts for the fact that nobody was seriously injured. The damage will run into thousands of dollars. Edward McDonald, five years old, and Charles Miller, four, admitted to authorities that they put the bolt on the track to see if the train would flatten it out as it did simall pins. They were not held by the facers. Ewald Family Holds Annual Reunion Sunday The annual reunion of the Ewald family was held Sunday, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Adam K. Wise at Plymouth.

Corn Growers' Association Inspects Fields and Issues Certificates. In order to provide supplies of Ind iana grown seeds of high quality, purity, and adaptability, the Indiana Corn Growers' Association, through a committee of its members, car ries on field inspection and certifica tion of wheat, rye, oats, barley, soybeans, cowpeas and corn. To meet the requirements for certification, the crop, under field inspection must be a standard variety, must show not more than one half of one per cent mixture, no noxious weeds, and a minimum of disease. After har vesting, a two-quart sample, submit ted to the committee at a designated time, must show the same degree of purity and freedom from disease or weeds as shown in the field; the weight per bushel must meet an established minimum; the seed must show good quality and little weather damage, and must be well cleaned. In the case of seeds permitting germination tests, the sample must show at least ninety percent live seed. In the case of corn an additional crib inspection is required. Seed meeting the above require ments is certified by use of an Indi ana Corn Growers' Association tag attached to each bag. This tag is supplied by the chairman of the Certification Committee, and is signed by both him and the grower. This tag differs from the tag used in com pliance with the Indiana Seed Law. Certified seed should carry both tags. "Several farmers in Marshall coun ty have in past years been produc ing certified seed wheat, oats, rye and soybeans being the grains certi fied," says a bulletin from the office of County Agent L. M. Butler. "The cost of certification is that the grower be a member of the Indiana Corn Growers' Association, which costs 50c per year, and shall pay a fee of $8 for any acreage up to twenty acres, and 25c for each ad ditional acre. For small grains such as wheat, oats and rye applica tion accompanied by the fee shall be made before June 15. Applications for soybeans, etc., shall be made be fore August 15. If the applicant finds that the field inspection will do him no good before the inspector starts on his schedule, he may withdraw his application and the fee will be refunded. County Agent Butler To Address Farm Federation County Agent L. M. Butler will be the speaker at the monthly meeting of the German Township Farm Bureau to be held n the gymnasium Monday evening, June 15. The meeting will be opened at 8 oclock.

MAIL PLANES TO BEGIN IN JULY People in this part of the state may soon become accustomed to the roar of airplane motors at night, winging their way between New York and Chicago in the new night service which is to start July 1. Beacon lights, erected on towers every few miles along the route, will guide the fliers through the dark hours. One of the lights will be installed at Lakeville and another on the government flying field south of Goshen. Beating the sun on the transcontinental route will be possible, it has been announced, because of a new wing section manufactured by the Loening Aeronautical Engineering Corporation of New York which has overcome one of the difficulties of aerial equipment. rianes. may land too swiftly and control in air is faulty at low speed. This is overcome by the new device, according to government experts, af ter a week of successful testing. These tests showed that the landing speed has been reduced from 60 miles an hour, as on the old plane, to 45 miles an hour with the new plane section. At the same time, high speed in the air has been increased from 119 miles an hour to 131. miles an hour. This was accomplished, it was further learned, by an increase of lateral control which fully meets the requirements in carrying the required fuel and 500 pounds of mail. Test trips have been made between New Yor1: and Chicago on the transcontinental route in one day. New records are being established on virtually every run. Ten additional planes have been ordered from the Loening company by the government. Several of these will be placed in service on the route.

Children's Day Program at Madison Church Sundav A Children's Day program will be given at Madison church, north of Bremen, Sunday evening. The pro gram will begin at 7.45. 1924 Program Brings Pick of Platform Entertainers To This Community. Quality is the one characteristic which has been considered in the choice of the Chautauqua entertainers, lecturers and musicians who will have a part in the program to be presented at the Bremen course this year. Five days, beginning July 9 and ending July 13, will be devoted to high class, inspiring and uplifting programs, afternoon and evening. A new feature of the Chautauqua will come as result of an arrangement made by the committee thi3 week to use the school gymnasium, instead of the tent as is used ordinarily. This arrangement will be a big improvement, making a much more comfortable seating plan for the crowds which will attend, and also making adverse weather condi-tons a less serous matter. Among the extraordinary features of the course will be the successful comedy-drama "Two Blocks Away," as produced by the MacMurray Players, a group of competent professionals. The play is in three acts and was originally produced successfully on Broadway by George M. Cohan. Coming also during the five days are Leake's Orchestral Entertainers, musicians of the "different" class; Pietro Mordelia and company Fietro is famous nationally as the pre mier piano-aecormonist; Captain Kil-roy Harris, Australian explorer and adventurer, in a lecture detailing his own thrilling experiences in the "bush country" of the Island-Continent; Arthur MacMurray, who will lecture on "The Confessions of a Lunkhead", humorous to a great degree, yet full of good common sense; lr. Yutaka Minakuchi, eminent Japanese orator, who comes with a message concerning his native land; and last but by no means least, The White and Black Male Chorus and Ministrels, masters of music and comedy, who close their program with a regulation aninistrel show, blackface, costumes and all. The Junior program will be of greater scope than ever, and the work has been so planned that numerous features will be introduced by the workers. As a gift to all children between the ages of 6 and 14 years, a "Little Lady" harmonica, the "smallest perfect musical instrument in the world" will be given free. It is advisable that tickets for the Chautauqua he secured just as quickly as possible, and that preparations be made for five of the most enjoyable days that summer can bring. i
