NUMBER 2G Stolen Automobile Left Winona Assembly Opens Year With Sweet's Band ( FCUSing 1 BASE BALL AND BOXING MATCH HEREJULY 4TH Baseball Club To Sponsor Celebration In Bremen On National Day. GREEN SOX HAVE HARD DAY OF IT; LOSE TO POSTS Stage Fright and Bad Breaks Add To Woe As Locals Slip. Mr. Post, besides making a variety of breakfast foods, y; something of a judge when it comes to picking ball players. His lads came down from Battle Creek Saturday night and on Sunday they combined a few base hits with a batch of Bremen boots and gathered enough runs in one hectic inning to win most any ball came. The official tally was 7 to 2. the score at the end of the seventh frame, which was the last full session played before the ever present Sabbath storm put an end to the carnival. The Greens, kept idle for two weeks by the weather man, went out j and put on a practice that looked ; like a million dollars. Then the j ca ne started. Smith, lead-off man . for tr.e cereal men, rohed an easv ! chance to Wertz, who hasn't had an 1 en-or ince the owning came of year. But old Mrs. Hardluck ! winked her other eve and the ball i bour.eed out of Wertv's mit. H grabbed it and shot wild to first, j Snath went to second and advanced ; to third on Burrell's fly to Huff, but i that's as far as he got. Radtka j grounded out to Fhilicn and Van-Porn sent a fly to Touhey. The Greens failed to score in the hone half, and then came the wierd second. Hunter was on when Shee-ban booted his grounder. Genne-bach bunted and Oswalt threw it a-way. Wertz contributed another error on Kline's roller and single smacks by McMillan and Burrell, together with a walk, netted the Pos-tums just five runs. Bremen's first run came in the fifth, when Torn Touhey connected for a ; double and Tobey Britten brought him in with a drive of the same dimensions. Hall's single and Bau-erline's double, with a sacrifice fly by Oswalt, brought home another one in the sixth. Battle Creek scored one in the sixth and one in the seventh, two hits in each frame acounting for the marking. Rain stopped the game in the last half of the eighth, with Hall on sec-; ond base after a husky two-ply whack with one down. The score reverted to the last completed inning, which was the seventh. Oswalt had an off day, without a single strike-out to his credit. Five errors behind him, with two of his own offenses, accounted for most of the vi.-itors' scoring.

Mish-ler of Elkhart. Lee Ditty, agent in Bremen for the insurance company in which the car was insured, recognized the description of the car from a notice sent out to agents by the company. A careful comparison of motor numbers and car numbers made the identification positive, and Mr. Ditty notified the company and the owner of the car at once. It is supposed that the car was stolen in Elkhart and driven to Bremen, where it was abandoned by the thieves, who took Orville Idarburg-er's car and drove it to Mishawaka, where it was recovered the next day. POST RECEIVES BONUSBLANKS Bremen American Legion Will Help Ex-Service Men Free of Charge. Ex-service men in this community can obtain blanks for the application for the soldiers' bonus from the officers of the American Legion, which was reorganized at a meeting Friday evening. The officers of the post have received the blanks necessary for the applications from the national organization, and will be ready in a short time to help all ex-service men in fillingut the papers as required. Former members of Otho B. Place post met Friday evening in the club rooms of the Thi Delta Kappa fraternity, over the News Stand, and elected Harry L. Kinzie Commander of the Post. Other officers named in the reorganization were Ervin P. Leeper, adjutant; Jesse Botset, secretary; and Dewey Arch, Treasurer. Because of the lack of a suitable meeting place the post has been inactive for the past two years and little has been done to promote friendlier feeling among the veterans of the World War in this community. With a permanent and regular meeting place assured as it now is, the officers and members feel that it was advisable to resume activities and to have a share in disposing of the important matters now before the ex-service men. The bonus bill recently passed by Congress will be discussed at the regular meeting tomorrow evening and it is hoped that full information will be available at that time. It is the purpose of the Legion to give free assistance to all who desire it in filling out the application blanks in the proper form, and they are requesting a full attendance at the meeting Friday evening. Pavement Sags; Mammoth Cave Is Found Below A miniature edition of Mammoth cave was discovered under the pavement at the intersection of Plymouth and Center streets Monday when B. C. Ellis and his men tore up a section to find out why the pavement had settled down at that spot. Old residents recall that there was a fire cistern at the place at one. time, and it is supposed that this is jgfcat caused the ground to settle, leaving a large hollow place under the concrete base of the brie!: pavement. 1 The hole was filled up with dirt and the pavement has been replaced. Children's Day Program At Salem Church Sunday Children's Day will be observed with appropriate exercises at Salem Evangelical church Sunday evening, when the . children of the Sunday school will present a program of recitations, songs, drills and other numbers at 7.30 oclock. The day is one that is set aside for r the children each year, and all par- erts and others interested arc invit-i ed to hear the program. Winona assembly opened the season's program Monday afternoon of this week with Al Sweet and his Singing Band. Dressed in nifty uniforms and playing popular, patriotic and classical numbers in a program balanced to suit the masses, they opened the regular assembly program, which augurs well' for Winona's 1924 session. The opening of the season, which means the closing of the gates and the beginning of the programs, brought its usual rush of business about the assembly offices. This rush was greatly accentuated by the mailing out of over twenty-five thousand pieces of literature advertising the big moving picture "America," which is D. W. Griffith's latest and greatest success. It will be shown in the tabernacle Friday and Saturday nights. BOYS AND GIRLS TO TRY FOR PRIZE State Fair Contest T o Offer Chance For Big Trophy and Prizes.

INTEREST GROWS IN CHAUTAUQUA WEEK AS SEASON NEARS Early advance sales of season tickets for the Central Community Chautauqua to be held in Bremen July 9 to 13 are large enough to warrant the hope on the part of the local committee that the 1924 assembly will be the largest ever attempted here. One ticket salesman has already disposed of thirty of the season tickets. Others have sold large numbers and have been promised the sale of many more. From present indications it seems that more season tickets will be sold previous to the opening of the assembly than ever before. Probably the excellence of the program as announced accounts for the favor which is being met. In the past the Chautauqua has offered some fine attractions and the people have been pleased with them. But it is not often that so many headline attractions are included in a five day program. One member of the local committee who has made a study of the program is loud in his praise of it. "No one," he says, "who enjoys clean, wholesome entertainment can afford to miss the opportunity offered by the purchase of a season ticket. Even those who had planned something else for Chautauqua week are changing their plans so as to attend the assembly. It is right that they should, because everyone realizes that if we are to have this sort of thing in our community we must have the united support of all our citizens." 125 CHILDREN ARE IN BIBLE SCHOOL ON OPENING DAY More than 125 boys and girls have been enrolled in the daily vacation Bible school which opened its sessions in the Church of the Brethren Monday morning. Interest in the project is good, and the pupils, teachers and parents are showing enthusiasm in the vvcrk of the school. Rev. Charles C. Cripe, pastor of the Church of the Brethren, is director of the school. The teaching staff includes Miss Edith Hans and Miss Mildred Berger, in charge of the beginners; Mrs. Charles Ellis and Miss Bertha Schilt, primary; Mrs. Warren Miller and Mrs. Clyde Coverstone, juniors; Miss Gertrude Yockey and Mrs. George Carbiener, intermediate. Assistants' are Miss Helen Knepp, Mrs. C. C. Cripe and Miss Emma Shull. The classes meet every morning except Saturday and Sunday at 8.30 and continue until 11.30. Next week there will be no school on July 4, but the day lost will be made up on Saturday. On Saturday evening, July 5, the pupils will give a program and demonstration of the work accomplished. All parents and all others interested are invited by those in charge to attend this program. Girl Taken To Hospital Marie Parrot, eight year old daughter of Mrs. Fred Parrot, was taken to the Mishawaka hospital Tuesday evening for an operation for the relief of appendicitis. Her condition is serious. BULLETIN At 4.30 oclock today, New York time, the democratic national convention had not completed the roll call of the states for nominations for president. At that time McAdoo, Underwood, Smith, Ralston, Robinson, Salsbury, John W. Davis, Huston and Ritchie had been named as candidates for the nomination. Indications are that the balloting will not begin today, as the time will be consumed by the nomination and seconding speeches.. Wild demonstrations heralded the naming of Underwood, Smith and McAdoo, and the Maryland delegation put on a noisy show this afternoon when Gov. Ritchie was named. T Miss Martin Is Named Home Economics Leader Miss Lola Martin, teacher of vocational home economics in the Bremen schols, was elected president of the conference of teachers of that subject at Winona Lake last week. She was active in the conference as chairman of the committee on Personal Hygiene and Home Nursing. The meeting at Winona was attended by home economics teachers from all over the state and Miss Martin reports a pleasant and profitable time. A number of noted workers in home economics appeared on the program. , Miss Jessie Caplin, who for sever-Continued on Page 8, Col 2 A baseball game, boxing mat es, band concerts, free attractions and an old fashioned home town gathering will feature the Fourth of July celebration planned for Bremen by the Bremen Greens baseball club. Arrangeancnts for the day are being completed this week, and the indications are now that the day will be fittingly celebrated in a safe and sane way. Free attractions, consisting of vaudeville acts on the street, have been engaged by those in charge of the affair. These acts always prove popular and attract large crowds whenever they are announced. The Bremen band, under the direction of Joe Huff, will play during the afternoon and evening, and will give concerts from the band stand. The evening concert will be given in connection with the free acts, so that the entire evening program will be free. At two-thirty in the afternoon the Warsaw Specials will imeet the Greens at Sunnyside park in what ought to be one of the best ball games of the year. The Specials were here for the second game of the season, and they won it by a 3 to 1 count. At that time they looked good. Both teams have improved since then, and the affair will be hotly contested. Bremen goes to Wjarsaw for a return game July 6. Following the ball game, three boxing bouts will be staged at the park, in front of the grand stands. The bouts are managed by a Michigan promoter who has put on many successful shows in this line. The principal event of the card will be a ten round go between Clif Speal-man of Kalamazoo, said to be one of the best boys in this territory, and Sailor Deshone of Chicago, who knocked out Frankie Taylor at Mishawaka on June 17. They will fight at 133 lbs. The semi-final bout will be between Billie Lootmis of Jackson, Mich., and Junior Huffman of South Bend. They will put on a fast four round scrap at 112 lbs. The preliminary will be an exhibition by the Eauclair twins, youngsters who put on six rounds of high speed mauling. "They are twin brothers," the announcement says, "but all brotherly love is forgotten when they get their gloves on." During the evening the band will play another concert from the band stand and the free acts will add to the entertainment. A number of concession have already been arranged for, so that there will be plenty of things to keep visitors amused. The whole affair is being managed by the Bremen Greens, with contributions from business houses and other sources to defray the expenses of the free entertainment. Tickets to the ball game and to the boxing match will be sold in advance by members of the baseball organization. . Sherk Girl Wins $2.00 Check It Was Easy Lavon Sherk won the first of the hidden checks when she called at the News Stand Saturday with the correct solution to the hunt. But she was not the only one. About fifty other peox)l were there with her, and they all had the solution. The matter had to be decided by lot. The hidden check page is in the Enquirer again today, with a different set of extra letters to find and put together. It's a little more difficult this time. You'll have to read every ad and watch closely. But the letters are there. There is no trick to the matter. It's just an advertising stunt, to make readers read the ads. And the interest shown last week is plenty of proof that people do read them. Watch for the. hidden check every i week.

The eight young men who comprise its membership will have charge of the program afternoon and night, and will bring to a brilliant close the best assembly ever held in this community. A big double program will be given at night, the finale being a regulation minstrel show with members In costume and end men in black face. Two changes of costume are necessary for the performances. In the first part the men will be attired In navy ensign coats, with white trousers and white shoes. Minstrel costumes are worn in the second section. The programs include ballads, popular and semi-classical music, both vocal and instrumental. There is snap and go and the organization is easily the most original glee club on the Chautauqua platform this season. BREMEN CHAUTAUQUA 5 DAYS JULY 9 to 13
