Bremen won the silver loving cup for the best at-tenance, with seventy-five percent present. Garrett, Warsaw, Goshen, South Bend, Mishawaka, Elkhart, Claypool and Marion chapters were represented in the gathering which was in the nature of a pre-convention meeting, held as a forerunner of the national convention which will be held at Louisville July 10, 11 and 12.

Chautauqua Guarantors To Make Plans Friday All who pledged to support the 1924 Chautauqua, and all others who are interested in any way, are called by officers of the local committee to meet at the town hall Friday evening at 7.30 to help take care of several questions befoie the committee. Preliminary plans are being made every day, and the meeting will be of interest to all who are assisting in any way to make the Chautauqua a success. Pigr.ity and the loner-faced sobiiety that are supposed to be a part of the banker's stock in trade were left behind by the 'more than one hundred Marshall county financiers .who fathered at Plymouth Friday evening for a banquet and get-tog-ether meeting of the county bankers' association. Good fellowship, with the very evident and much expressed desire to be of real neighborly service to the other fellow, prevailed in a gathering- that was "democratic and informally pleasant. The meeting" Friday evening was the rist held by the association in three years. The organization was formed in 1921 and one meeting- was held. About a month ago the Plymouth bankers started a movement to revive the activities of the association, and O. G. Soice, Joseph Whitesell and Edward S. Kitch took charge of the affair and completed the details of the present meeting;. Both Bremen banks were well represented by officers and directors and their wives, and imost of the other banks of the county sent some of the members of their official families to the banquet. j The banquet was held in the dining room of the Presbyterian church and was served by the ladies of the church. Following a roll call of the banks of the county O. G. Soice, toast master and president of the association, called upon County Agent L. M. Butler for the address of the evening. Mr. Butler made a forceful appeal to the financiers of the county to get behind the movement for more and better dairying in Marshall county in the interest of general prosperity. He said that the dairying business has helped our farmers to tide over a difficult period and that he feared there will be a tendency on the part of some to reduce the number of milk cows, switching to beef, a tendency which he would like to overcome by encouragement of dairying. He said that Marshall county is especially well situated for the dairying business being about 100 miles from the great Calument industrial district, having 23 creanr stations, 3 creameries, one cheese factory, some milk routes from South Bend, and milk trains. The Schlosser Brothers organization also supplies a local selling place for dairy products. As a matter of comparisn he compute'! th:.t the value of Marshall county's wheat crop in the war time when the acreage was twice as large as at present was about $380,000. The value of cur dairy products with a milk cow population of 10.-(v i aVut S57.",000 a year. Although Marshall county has made splendid progress the county agent sai l there were a number of weak- res pes in dairying methods practiced by some which should be remedied to bring the best profits to our fanners. The main matters are improper and insufficient fepd and the keeping of boarders cows producing insufficient butterfat to be profitable. In the roll call of the banks of the county P. E. Dietrich responded for the Bremen State Bank, of which he is president. Mr. Dietrich spoke highly of the benefits of the meetings of the county organization, and urged the banks to close for the next group meeting, which will be held in South Bend. For the Union State Bank Edward Heckaman, president, expressed the belief that it was well worth while to get together. He replied to Treasurer O shorn 's good matured complaint that the bankers had not paid their dues by saying that they were waiting for an invitation to meet at Culver. Culver will be the ret meeting place. Those who attended from Bremen wer-: Mr. and Mrs. P. E. Dietrich, Edward Laudeman, Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Knoblock, Mr. and Mrs. Ed-war-1 Ponader, Mr. and Mrs. William .-': ' !--.---r, Mr. and Mrs. Claude E.

But the train was too fast And he didn't get past They're having his fuheral Tomorrow! As the Coroner Sings it. "Would you rather try to beat that train or interurban to the other side of the railroad rijjht of way and just get up to and including that crossing, or take your time, use a little of the common sense God is supposed to have given us mortals and be only a few seconds or minutes late at your destination?" This query is proposed by the safety bureau of the Hoosier State Automobile Association, the statewide organization of automobile owners which is working for safety and protection on the streets and highways. "Gabriel will call you all too soon anyway," the statement adds. "Why invite his trumpet blasts several years ahead of time?" The Hoosier association again sounds a warning against reckless and thoughtless driving on the streets and highways of Indiana. "The touring season is going to be heavy," the statement says. "Thousands of cars are buzzing up and down the good roads of Indiana and many of these drivers are flirting with death at every mile . At every cross road every driver is apt to meet a fool driver. Sometimes it may happen that both are foolishly reckless and even at intersections where the view is entirely open each races ahead thinking he can beat the other fellow to the intersection, realizing all too late that a terrible smash-up is inevitable. "What foolishness this is! In the first place the state law regarding right of way is disregarded. The law provided that the car approaching from the right at an intersection shall have the rifht to proceed but fool-headedness or bull-headed-ness seems to set aside all safety laws."

They Look Like Peanuts, But Really They're Eggs John Schuch has a hen that ought to be in the peanut business. At least that's what one would think from the style of her eggs. Two of them in the Enquirer window make the place look like a peanut store. But they are just eggs. Everybody reads Enquirer want ads. Mrs. Elmer R. Gaby, who lived in Bremen for about a year until she and her husband moved to South Bend last spring, was almost instantly killed in that city Saturday night at about 10.30, when she fell under the wheels of a Portage avenue car after a burned out controller had caused the motorman to lose control of the car. Her body was almost severed, and she died in her husband's arms a few minutes after the accident. Mr. and Mrs. Gaby had boarded the car near the center of the city of South Bend and were on their way to their home on North College avenue. The street car had turned from Michigan street into Navarre, just east of the Epworth hospital, and had almost reached the top of the incline at that place when the controller box blew out. The lights in the car were extinguished and the front end of the car was filled with smoke as it started to burn. In the panic among the passengers that followed Mrs. Gaby and her husband were separated. According to witnesses, .Mrs. Gaby reached the street, but in alighting fell across the tracks and was run over by the car as it backed down the incline to Michigan street. The trucks cf the car were raised from her bod by powerful jacks, but the unfortunate woman died before she could be moved to the hospital, only a block away. W. L. Milliken, motorman of the car, made the following statement U3 to the accident at the corone! inquest Monday: "Just as I got around the corner on Navarre st., off of Michigan st. I think I had got about the length of the car I began to put on the power. I fed it one point, and it took all right; then I went to feed it from the second point to the third point and it stuck and fired; that is, the controller short-circuited and caught on fire. -' "I tried to throw the pover off. It stuck and I could not get the power thrown off. I reached up to knock the overhead off, which means cut out the current. I hit it twice with my fist and it would not knock out. By that time' the car was full of smoke and I reached for the door, opened the door and got out and ran for the back of my car and pulled the trolley pole. "As I did this I saw the back door open. The pulling of the trolley released the door lock so it could be pulled open, and the trolley pole was pulled free from the trolley wire. This released the power and the car started to roll backward." As the car rolled backward I ran alongside of the car and held the trolley rope so it would not hit the wire and come in contact. I called out to the people on the outside of the car, 'Out of the way.' "Just about one foot before the car stopped I heard a woman scream. As soon as the car stopped I fastened the trolley pole down and ran to the front of the car to see who was hurt. I ran around the front of my car and found this wo man underneath the left truck on the left side of my car and there was no possible way to get her out by moving my car unless I would run over her, so I had the groceryman call the police department and I pulled the fire alarm." In concluding his version of what happened, Milliken ventured the opinion that the car rolled back about thirty feet. Mr. and Mrs. Gaby were married June 14, 1918, at Logansport. They moved here from that city and Mr. Gaby worked at the raditor plant. In March, 1924, they moved to South Bend, where Mr. Gaby is employed by a contractor. The accident came on the sixth anniversary of their marriage, and they were on their way home from a trip to the city to make a payment on their home, which they bought recently. Besides her husband, Mrs. Gaby Continued on Page 8, Col 2 According to the Rochester papers the much advertised meeting: of the Ku Klux Klan at Lake Manitou was a much smaller affair than the hooded empire thought it would be. The Rochester Daily News said Monday: "The widely heralded Klan invasion cf Rochester failed to come up to the expectations of those enthusiastic promoters who urged local people to prepare to feed and entertain 30,000, or more, people Saturday. There was not an average Saturday crowd in Rochester until evening, when 672 Kluxers, Klux-erinos and Kids paraded in the robes of the order and attracted a throng of people to witness the sepctacle. The visiting brethren received scant courtesy from the local Kluxers as only a very few of the home guard joined in the parade. Most of them were on the side lines proving to their friens that they do not belong to the order. The monetary loss to lake resorters and others who anticipated a big crowd is considerable and Kluxer stock is considerably below 100 in this locality." Shafer Family Holds Its . Seventh Annual Reunion Ninety members of the Shafer family were present at the seventh annual reunion of the family which was held at the home of Henry Shafer, on the Ridge, northwest of Bremen, Scnday. Officers were elected os follows: Simon Shafer, president; Henry Shafer, vice president; George Shafer, treasurer; Gertrude Shafer, secretary. BILL BOOSTER SAYS to it- NOO UVE OU A STREET UP NOVJR.

KnAVN A QMHtESS STREET HAS REFORMED BE CAUSE OF A GOOO EXAAfVeV GREENS WILL MEET REAL CLASS WHEN POST TEAM COMES The Greens will meet some opposition of the very highest class in semi-pro circles Sunday afternoon, when the Battle Creek Postums come to Bremen to tackle the home outfit on the Sunnyside lot. Included in the cereal men's lineup are Hunter, formerly of the Boston Braves, Burrell of the Southern League and Catcher Goode of the Central circuit. Capt. VonStrien, shortstop, is an old Western Leaguer. Radke and Smith have had big- time experience. The pitching staff includes Woodburn, formerly of Louisville, McMillan of Toledo and Lefty McDonald, favorite of the Bremen fans, who won favor here for his work against Nappanee for the Greens last fall. McDonald will probably do the pitching Sunday. The Bremen team, with an improved line-up, is ready for the Toasties and will give them a real run. The Postums have won one and lost one in their series with South Bend. If Oswalt is right, as he should be, the fans at Mr. Erskine's town may get another little demonstration in comparative scores. Another Chapter For Jack and the Beanstalk A mushroom that assumed proportions far greater than the size generally attributed to such fruits was discovered by Robert Penrose, who lives five miles northeast of Bremen on the Goshen road, in his orchard Saturday. The prize mushroom had grown to a height of just ten inches. And it was no freak spindle, either, for the circumference was thirteen inches. It weighed just about a pound, and so far as is known is the largest of its breed in captivity. It was of the common "sponge" variety, and made a meal for the whole family. noted Japanese orator, are other worth while attractions. The Junior Department for the kiddies will be greater than ever and every boy and girl between the ages of 6 and 14 is to have a "Little Lady" harmonica free. This is the smallest perfect musical instrument in the world and one on which nearly every boy and girl can easily learn to play. With such an array of talent and the good fellowship and neighborli-ness that is always so prominent a feature under the big brown tent, it is expected that the number of season tickets sold this year will far exceed the quota required to make the assembly a financial success. Early Indications Point To Best Assembly Town Has Ever Had. Gay colored banners proclaiming that Chautauqua time is a joy time for the whole family announce the Bremen assembly for July 9 to 13 and have started home folks talking about the coming attraction. Early indications point to the most successful assembly the town has ever held. Preliminary arrangements are being- made by the com mittees of the local guarantors and the advertising matter is being distributed over the community which will enjoy the Chautauqua program. One of the popular announcements that is made by the committee is to the effect that the sessions of the assembly will be held in the school gymnasium, which will be more comfortable and better in every way than the usual tent. H. A. Henderson and H. L. Hol-lenbach, advance agents of the Chautauqua, were in Bremen yesterday to assist the local committee in getting started with the preliminary work of the assembly. As to the program itself, the announcements offer an attractive array of the best entertainment talent and lecturers. "I'm going to hear that ." This remaik, heard so frequently v n the Black and White Male CI. which appears on the Chautau program this year i. mentioned, i.s easily accounted for by the fact that a chorus of fine male voices blended in close harmony has always had a strong appeal for music lovers. Tin's splendid organization comes to the Chautauqua th's year with two great programs of choruses, male quartets, solos and comedy numbers, and as though this were not enough, they add to their evening program a minstrel sketch elaborately customed and produced. This is but one of the fine numbers which Chautauqua season ticket holders will ha-e the privilege of hearing this summer. A three act comedy with Arthur MacMurray, one of the finest of character men in the lead; Leake's Orchestral Entertainers in a program of novelty music; the Mordelia Trio with the famous Pie-tro Mordelia, piano-accordionist; and two nationally known concert artists, Waldemar Geltch, violinist, and Alexius Baas, bass-baritone, form a series of musical attractions that would be hard to beat. A lecture on "Unknown Australia" by Captain Kilroy Harris, Australian frontiersman and world traveler; a humorous lecture-recital, "The Confessions of a Lunkhead," by Mr. Mac-Murray; and a great inspirational address by Dr. Yutaka Minakuchi,
