NUMBER 29 Pete Says It's Just His Scandinavian Luck Where To? V BREMEN PUPILS WIN AWARDS IN ESSAY CONTEST ONE BIG RALLY IN TENTH WINS FOR GREEN SOX Dick Falvey Goes Good For Eight Innings, Then Weakens. CHAUTAUQUA TO RETURN IN 1925, SAY GUARANTORS Contract Is Signed By 128 Citizens Who Guarantee Assembly Next Yrir. FARMERS TO MEET MONDAY NIGHT IN "SUMMER SPECIAL" For eight innings Dick Falvey, former Notre Dame star engaged by Fly mouth to lick the Greens, held Bremen scoreless in the game at Centennial Fark at the county seat Sunday afternoon. Then the Green swatters, who had been pecking a-vay at his stuff all the timo began to drop them into safe teritory. Falvey weakened, and the Greens cop-pod, 5 to 1, in an overtime exhibition that is called one of the best ever seen en the riymouth lot. The break came in the ninth, after the Greens had failed to get the smile out of Old Lady Luck for eight frames. Up to that time it was a reck and neck affair, Plymouth holding the edge by a single run ihey had scored on a walk, an error ai d a hit in the third inning. Hall strolled to open the ninth. Fhilion singled but Hallie was nipped at the plate, Fhilion taking third on the p'ay. Then Babe pulled the game out of the five by doing the running end of a perfect hit-and-run play, with Ciaty Huff doing the hitting. Fhilion beat the peg to the plate by a beautiful slide and Huff was safe at first. Bauerline was out on a fly to center arid Huff was caught at third, retiring the side. It was in the ninth inning that Catcher Born of the Athletics got in bad with Umpire Steiner ami was handed his walking papers. In the tenth, the Greens were quick to follow the advantage they had openeu in the ninth, and they hammered the faltering Falvey for six hits and four runs before they let up. Flymouth failed to show a thing in their half. Fly mouth's run came in the third, when Oswalt punctured Blausser after ore was gone. White's single and a boot by Wertz let in the run. Hie Greens outhit the Athletics throuehout the game, and looked like a better team. They threatened in every inning, but never got a man pat third until the ninth. Bremen gathered fourteen hits during the fracas while the Athletics got a half dozen safeties. But until the ninth it was evenly fought and a thriller to watch. Tom Touhey led the Greens in the hitting with a triple and two singles. The triple was wasted, however, when Tom was sent in from third on an impossible try to stretch it to a circuit -hive. Fhilion turned in three singles, and every man on the team except Fauerline made ore or more safe corrections during the day. White, and Catty did the best hitting for Flr-o-uth, each getting two of the mx Athletic hits.

Vocational Students Are Awarded Places In Purdue Competition. Students in the vocational classes of Bremen high school made a good show ing in an essay contest conducted by the Purdue Agriculturist, a vocational magazine published by the department of agriculture at Purdue University.

The announcement of the a-wards states that the contest created more interest than in any previous year. Six hundred tliirty papers were submitted by students of more than sixty high schools in the state, so that the winning of the places by the Bremen students carries no small honor. The announcement states further that the papers were without exception very good, making it extremely difficult to choose the winners in the various classes. Old Resident Remembers When Town Was Young Andrew Zeiger, who was born and grew to manhood on a farm in Madison township three miles north of Bremen, writes from his home at Waldo, Kansas, recalling the pioneer days. Older residents will remember Mr. Zeiger, who left here T4 years ago. He says: "I well remember about 73 years ago when I first saw Bremen. It consisted of three dwelling houses, store building and a new blacksmith fdiop in the hazel bushes. And last fall when I was in Bremen I found a fine ctiy, clean and nicely kept. A wonderful change in these years. "But such are the improvements of America. When I first came to Kansas, this was frontier. No railroads except the Kansas Facfic (now Union Facific), no laid out country roads, no bridges over the streams, no school houses nor churches. But plenty of drouths, grasshoppers chinch bugs and hot winds. But now these things have changed, and no longer can we see these frontier conditions. Steady improvement is going on in the last year, especially in Russell, our county seat. It has become an industrial center. At the beginning of 1923 it had a population of 2000. This year it is 2400. There was no paving until the spring of 1023. In the last year CO blocks were paved. "There were no oil well tests until fall. We now have four producing wells pumping from GOO to 750 barrels of oil each daily and about twenty more wells under way. "There is a fine prospect for bounteous crops. . Harvest is about over. We had an extremely dry and cold spring and cool summer, but very little rain. In spite of this we will have a better turnout and a better quality of wheat than for years. Our deep level snow on March 1G saved our wheat."

Bremen will have a Chautauqua a-gain next year. One hundred twenty-eight public spirited citizens signed the contract for next year's assembly, guaranteeing the return of the course. It. E. Kelsey, platform manager of the 1024 assembly, stated that the spirit shown here in the attitude of the people to the Chautauqua was the best he had seen any place. He started with members of the local committee in an effort to get seventy-five guarantors, but without any great effort they secured almost twice the mynber expected, in spite of a small deficit this year. The Chautauqua this year closed Sunday night. The program gave great satisfaction and is spoken of in very complimentary terms by those who attended the sessions. The musical numbers of the course were of high class. Leake's Orchestral Entertainers entertained the Chautauqua with a pleasing program, followed on the second day by the Mordelia Trio. IMr. Moixlelia was a favorite among the cMluren, leading their "harmonica band" in a few numbers as a popular feature of his program. Terhaps the highest class music of the course was presented by Alexius Baas, baritone, and Waldemar Geltch, violinist, who appeared in recitals on Saturday. The closing features were by the Black and White Male Chorus. Their chorus numbers were pleasing to the largest crowds of the week, but the minstrel afterpart Sunday evening was a disappointment to many. It was below the standard of the rest of the program. Only three lectures were included in the course. Capt. Kilroy Harris gave an interesting travelogue "Through Unknown Australia" Thursday evening. Arthur MacMur-ray of the MacMurray-Kackley players spoke Friday afternoon on "The Confessions of a Lunkhead," and on Saturday evening Dr. Y. Minakuchi gave his address on "The Borderland," a study of Japan and the relation of the sunrise kingdom to America. . fr . Terhaps the most popular entertainment of the week was the play, "Two Blocks Away," by the Mac-Murray-Kackley players on Friday evening. The play is a George M. Cohan comedy and won many laughs from the big crowd in attendance. A feature of the Chautauqua which was given more attention this year than at any previous attention was the Junior department. Miss Jea-nette Wilson was in charge, and the children enjoyed the morning sessions of stories, instruction and play. Monday afternoon the Juniors hel l a picnic at the park, with .Miss Edith Hans in charge, and organized a "Junior Town" with Theodore Nrher as mayor. There is a police force, a board of aldermen, and all the necessary features of a town government, and the children are planning to keep up their activities until the Chautauqua next year. II. E. Kelsey, who was sent to Bremen as platform manager by the Community Chautauqua, made many friends during his week here, and the guarantors will ask for his return r ext year, if it is possible. The use of the school gymnasium instead of the tent proved a popular move, with both the crowd and the Chautauqua people. Tlans have been made already for the use of the building again next year. In their meetings the guarantors have talked over plans for making tlv Chautauqua next year a more gc.ic ally popular affair than ever before. This can be done, they think, by the sort of contract they have arranged, which simply buys the course, outright from the Community Chautauqua people and allows the home committee of guarantors to sell tickets at their own prices an. 5 as t!,ey please.

The meeting is designated as a "summer specialty" meeting, and. the program committee has arranged a special attraction for the affair. County Agent L. M. Butler will be present and will show four films of motion pictures of special interest to farm people and there will be other matters of importance to discuss. Refreshments will be served, and every effort is being made by those in charge to make the affair a big meeting for the farmers. Business Houses Help American Legion Display Fifty-two Bremen establishments have agreed to co-operate in the decorative flag display planned and j sponsored by the local post of the j American Legion. The ex-service men have signed up that number of subscribers for the flags, and the in- ' stallation of the standard holders will : begin soon. The largest attendance of the sea-' son so far made the meeting of the ' post Friday evening of more than usual interest.
