Senator Ralston's long waited boom started on the 49th ballot, when Mississippi swung her 20 votes to his column. The Ralston vote on the 48th ballot was 32. On the 49th it was 57. Leaders on the 48th ballot were as follows: McAdoo 483.5; Smith 321; John W. Davis 70.5; Underwood 38.5. On he 52nd ballot the Missouri delgation switched to Ralston, bringing the Hoosier's total to 93. Gaining! Two good teams met at Nappanee Sunday, and the team that played the better game won. It was a battle of class from the go, and Bremen had to use all her stuff to lick the Tigers, 6 to 4. Johnny Oswalt started on the firing: line for the Greens and for six innings he pitched wonderful ball. By that time the Greens had accumulated six runs, and it looked like a sure thing. Steady banging away by the Sox swatters, who didn't fail to hit in any inning, was piling up a safe lead. Heavy hitting by Wtrtz was the feature ef the game, the Bremen second sacker turning in a double, a triple and a homer as his day's work. Four fielding chances without a boot made his the best lookng work of the day. Bremen started the fireworks early. Sheehan was out on a called third strike. Then Wertz stepped up and crashed the second ball pitched to him to the woods in left field. By the time they had found it Werty was in. Touhey was tossed out by White and Britten grounded to Chapman. Huff started the second with a smcie. nail satniru when Chapman booted his bunt. Phi-lion drew a pass and Huff scored on DeRose's passed ball, Hall taking third. Bauerline singled, scoring Hall. Oswalt grounded to White, who tossed out Philion at third. Sheehan and Wertz were out by the air route. Bremen added another in the third when Britten walked, advanced on Huff's single to center and scored when Tannehill erred. In the sixth Sheehan got on when Claffy booted, scoring a minute later on Wertz's triple smash. Touhey's drive to right field counted Wertz. That was the end of the scoring for the Greens, although there were hits in every Pitcher Merhab, who started for the Tigers, was relieved by Link after the first three innings. Link wai unable to stop the banging a-wav of the Greens, however, and there vcas never much doubt of the outcome of the affair.

Bremen People Attend Reunion At Nappanee The annual reunion of the descen HIGH VOLTAGE LINE IS READY Town Will Have 33,000 Volt Service After Change Is Finished Sunday. After next Sunday the town and community of Bremen will be served by an electric light and power line j of 33,000 volts instead of 13,00 volt j service which now prevails. j Workmen of the Interstate Public Service Co., which supplies Breamen from its Goshen plant, have completed the changes in equipment necessary , for the " high voltage service, and the final step will be made Sunday (morning, when the new permanent substation will be put in operation. It is hoped that this will be the last of the interruptions in service which have been necessary while the work of making the change was in progress. The higher voltage will make a great improvement in the Bremen service, as fluctuations in the voltage, now more or less frequent because of the heavy load carried, will be almost totally eliminated by the higher capacity line. Since the installation of the original line the load carried has been increased so much that the service has been somewhat Continued on Page 8, Col 2 dants of Samuel and Elizabeth Lehrj suits of the treatments that are was held at Nappanee Sunday.

Fourth of July visitors in Bremen may take long fancied flights to cloudland if they like. Or if that seems too strenuous, they may content themselves with watching others do it. An airplane with an army flyer at the stick has been engaged by the managers of the celebration to be here for the day and to give exhibition flights, as well as to do sky taxi work for those who desire it. The plane was secured as a free attraction, instead of the street vaudeville acts formerly announcer!. The managers made the change in the belief that the plane would be more of an attraction than the acts, and would please and interest more people than any other kind of attraction. Another stunt planned by the managers of the affair for the day is the giving away of merchandise donated by Bremen dealers at the ball park during the afternoon. More than $100 worth of goods, it is stat- j ed by those in charge, will be pass-, ed out to the crowd at the game. ! The biggest event of the day, of j course, will be the baseball game at Sunnyside park at 2.30 in the afternoon. Warsaw will send a monster , crowd of holiday pleasure, seekers J with their Athletics, all sure of re-i peating their win of several weeks I ago, when the season was young. I The Greens say it can't be done, and i there are hundreds of loyal fans in Bremen who think the same way a-bout it. At any rate, it will be a ball game. The Warsaw aggregation which appeared here before was a strong club. Since then several changes have been made to strengthen the team. Lovers of the national pastime will see two good machines in action Friday. Before the game and during the afternoon the Bremen band will play, and the same musicians will give a full concert during the evening. After the game a boxing match will be staged at the ball park, including three bouts by some of the clever scrappers of this part of the country. The bouts are managed by a Michigan promoter who has put on many successful shows in this line. j The principal event of the card will be a ten round go between Clif Speal-man of Kalamazoo, said to be one ot the best boys in this territory, and Sailor Deshone of Chicago who J knocked out Frankie Taylor at Mish- awaka on June 17. They will fight at 133 lbs. The semi-final bout will be between Billie Loomis 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." The celebration is put on under the management of the Bremen Greens baseball club, aided by co it' 5bucion j from Bremen business Louses to pay the necessary expenses. The ball game and boxing match will pay their own way, of course, and any profit realized from them will go into the somewhat depleted treasury of the Greens. Many visitors who will make the occasion a homecoming for a brief holiday are expected in Bremen, to swell the crowd which will be here for the celebration of the nation's birthday. Bremen Man In Charge of Nappanee A. & P. Store Chester W. Helmlinger has gone to Nappanee, where he has been put in charge of the Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co.'s store. He and his family will make their home in Nappanee. Every body reads Enquirer want ada Howard Peterson hunted all the hidden letters out of the "Hidden Check" page last week and when he put the letters together they spelled the name of Hall's Jewelry Store. At two oclock Saturday he found that some fifty others had figured it, too. They had to draw lots to decide where the check would go, Howard won it. Maybe you can find it this week. Rose Family Reunion Was Held Here Sunday The annual reunion of the Rose family was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Kipfer in Bremen Sunday. Ninety-six members of the relationship were present, coining from Indianapolis, Richmond, Lo-gansport, Peru, Plymouth, South Bend, Grand Rapids, Cincinnati and other places. George Kipfer of Bremen is secretary of the organization. AMERICAN LEGION PLANS UNIFORMITY IN FLAG DISPLAYS Uniformity in street decorations on patriotic occasions for Bremen is the plan now being worked out under the direction of Otho B. Place post of the American Legion. A solid line of stars and stripes, with flags of uniform size and mountings in front of each business house and many residences, to be displayed on patriotic and special occasions and community celebrations, is the system now being considered by the Le-gionaires. Each business house is being asked to purchase an America flag through the Legion. A housing for the twelve foot pole which will support the flag is to be installed in the curb in front of each place. The flag, made of fine material in fast colors, will be four by six feet in size and the entire cost of the outfit, installed by the Legion, will be ?5. Each subscriber to the plan will then own his own flag ami standard. Under this system the town may be decorated quickly and the line of flags will make a splendid display-in the business district, . where the staffs will be erected in perfect alignment. At the holiday season the housings in the curb may be used for the display of small Christmas trees, if it is desired. Several cities and towns in northern Indiana have already adopted the Legion plan, and the reception of the system so far given br Bremen business men encourages the ex-service men to believe that it will be popular here. Many business houses lave ahead v subscribed for the flags. A small percentage of profit in the venture will go into the Leg-ion ( The Fourth 1 . Iilr TJSSW FU wck. William May, Mr. and Mrs. W. C.

VACATION SCHOOL TO END SATURDAY IN DEMONSTRATION The 1924 Daily Vacation Bible School, best in point of attendance since the project was started in Bre - men several years ago, will end Sat- j urday evening, when a program and demonstration will be given at the Church of the Brethren. There will be no session tomor- ! row, July 4, but the day lost will be made up Saturday morning. This will complete the course, which will be cut short one week from the ! original plan because of the Chau tauqua which begins next week. Rev. Charles C. Cripe, director of ! the school, expresses himself as high- : ly pleased with the work done by tVio school, considering the handi- - ' mi.' cap of the shortened time. Tire attendance has been better than ever ! Kefm-P and the interest and en-' thuidasm in the work have been good. More than 123 were enrolled in all the classes. Miss Estella Chase of Plymouth, superintendent of the educational department of the Marshall County Council of Religious Education, visited the school Wednesday morning. She was ardent in her praise of the standard of work done by the school, and gave her official approval of the effort. Saturday night's program will be in the nature of a demonstration of the work that has been done by the pupils in the various classes of the school. Parents of the children who have been in attendance, as well as all others interested, are urged by the ; rrs director and his staff of teach-to attend the Saturday evening j , i !
