TIGERS WIN IN PITCHERS' DUEL AT NAPPANEE Bremen Errors Give 4-0 Victory xTo Nappanee In Fast Game. I ' - "V s - v ; ! Bremen Man Arrested For Theft of Ford Thirteen Month Calendar Plan of Weather Bureau Scientists Big league fielding and high class pitching featured the weekly exhibition of the national pastime at Nappanee Sunday afternoon, when Bremen lost to the fast traveling Tigers by a count of 4 to 0. Sensational plays by both teams in almost every inning: brought liberal applause from the big crowd, while the hurling: duel between Johnny Oswalt and Edgington was a display of veal class. Five errors by the Bremen crew, bunched at the citical moments, contributed to the result. But the Greea defense came through with some wonderful fielding and robbed the hard hitting Tigers of several more safe knocks. Nappanee broke into the run column with the first score of the game in the sixth inaing. Chapman, first man up, was hit by one of Johnny's' inshoots and was sacrificed to second by G ruber. Sheehan booted White's grounder and Chap-ina.i counted. Dutch was safe on Touhey's error, but White was nailed when he tried to sneak home. Wysong fanned to close the canto. The rest of the scoring came in the Nappanee half of the eighth. Lee Tannehill singled to start it and Chapman produced another base knock. G ruber was hit by a fast one inside, filling the bases. White grounded, but Bauerline dropped the peg to the plate and Tannehill was safe. Butch singled to right, scoring Chapman, but Whiting's perfect throw to the plate stopped Gm-ber. Wysong's single brought in White, but Wysong was out when he tried to take second on the play. PeRose fouled out to Bauerline, ending the session. Nappanee touched Oswalt for seven hits, three of which were gathered by Tannehill. In only one inning did the Tigers get more than one safe swat. The Greens found Ed-gington for only four knocks, Tom Touhey's double being the only extra base drive of the day. The fielding of both teams showed flashes of real big league stuff. The fifth inning especially was full of class. White made a star stop of Whiting's drive. Gruber robbed Bauerline of a three bagger. Butch got a big hand for his great catch of Oswalt's long drive. Sheehan made several nice stops and catches for Bremen and Tobey Britten pulled down drives to center that were tagged for extra bases. In the second inning a fast double play, Sheehan to Thilion, caught Wy- sot' g drive the bag after PeRose's I short and cave the crowd another thrill. Bremen New traffic regulations for the town of Bremen, designed to minimize the danger of collisions or other accidents during the busy hours, were adopted by the town board in a special meeting last night. According to the new ordinance, the parking of cars in the center of the street, long recognized as dangerous by the town authorities, will be prohibited. The regular forty-five degree parking is to be used, except that in Center street, where It is more crowded the cars are to be set parallel to the curb. It is also unlawful to park within ten feet of a fire hydrant. Another new feature included in the new ordinance is a "stop" order for all cars .coming into or crossing Center street at its intersection with South street. Cars are ordered to slow down at the intersections of Mill and Center streets, North and Center, Jackson and Plymouth and Plymouth and Center. Accept Berg Resignation. The resignation of Charles L. Berg from a seat in the town board of trustees was accepted by that body in regular session Tuesday evening. Action of the board on the resignation of Mr. Berg came as the first step in an effort on the part of the officials to straighten the tangle that, now confronts the board on account of the resignation of three of its members. The resignation of John Senff, president o. the board, was the first one filed with the clerk, but action on his resignation and that of William Neher were postponed when Mr. Berg insisted that he be released at once. It is the plan of the board to accept the resignations one at a time, filling in the vacanies as they occur. This method, they believe, offers the simplest plan for working out of the difficulty and will put the newly appointed members in olfica without the necessity of a special election. Many Oppose Sewer. Remonstrators to the number of twenty-two objected to the construction of the proposed sewer improvement on Dewey, Washington, Bike, East and North streets when the matter came up for consi deration by the board Tuesday night. The remonstrance was filed by T. J. Walter and was signed by twenty-two property owners who object to the construction of the sewer on the ground that their property will not be sufficiently benefited to justify tho expenditure necessary. Action on the sewer remonstrance was postponed until the next regular meeting of the board on August 26. Other matters considered by the board in the session Tuesday' evening were routine business and the allowance of bills.

Russell Newgent, who is attending the coaching school at Notre Dame, spent the week end with his brother, II. II. Newgent, and wife. .Marshall county will join the rest of the state and the nation in observing National Defense Day on Sept. 12, according to preliminary arrangements made Sunday at a meeting called by Brig. Gen. L. R. Gignil-liat at Culver. Representatives from cities and towns all over northwestern Indiana were present at the meeting. Bre- men was somehow missed in tne call for the first meeting, but will be asked to help in the observance of the dav. Sam Temlinsbn of Plymouth" has been named chairman of the committee in charge of the arrangements for the day in Marshall county. He expects to organize his local committees for the demonstration with- in a few days. A R Erskinef president of the studebaker Corporation, of South Bend, preside 1 at the Culver meet- ing Sunday and John R. Quinn, na tional commander of the American Legion, was one of the speakers of the day. In a short talk, urging the fullest cooperation in the movement, Mr. Erskine said: "When the president and his advisers say Defense Day is necessary, I say it is necessary. It is impossible for a man sitting in Madison, Wis., or Lincoln, Neb., to say whether we need Defense Day or not. In this country a bootlegger can criticize the president and get awav with it. Give no heed to this jCTirrfiHnl rvitirisni. whir-h i icrnor- ance attemptine to wise. Let us . . , , , v give our sincere and wnoie-neartea support to this undertaking. The purposes of National Defense Day as planned by those who sponsor the movement are announced as follows : "A non-secret test of our present decentralized scheme for National Defense with a view of discovering its defects and avoiding the costly mistakes in lives and money of our last war. It is in no sense a general mobilization which would require the bringing to war strength of the personnel, material and animals of our military components. "To illustrate precisely what part each community would have to play in our present scheme of national defense, the contribution it would have to make in men to fill up the units allotted to the community, and what the units would have to call on the community for in the way of facilities for quartering, feeding and training the unit." The official call for the observance of the day in Indiana is embodied in a proclamation issued last Friday by Gov. Emmett F. Branch. The proclamation says in part: "The 12th day of September, 1924, having been designated by the Pros ent of the United as Defense Test day, to provide for a general in-sixMrtion of the armv of the United states and to afford opportunity for patriotic assemblies, parades of local units of the regular army, National Guard, organized reserves, war veterans' societies reserve officers' training corps, schools and other patri otic organizations. : "Now therefore, I, Emmett F. : Branch, Governor of the State of Indiana, do hereby declare Friday, I Sept. 12, 1924, as Defense Test day and urge on all loyal citizens of the i state of Indiana to attest their pa triotic support of the national defense by displaying the American flag and by attending and participating in such assemblies, parades and other public demonstrations as may be arranged in the various communities of the state by the state, dis- l trict and county communities ap- pointed by me to have charge of these functions." LICENSED TO WED Among the marriage license issued by the clerk of the court at Plymouth during the past week was one to Miss Sarah Fisher of Bourbon and George Lung of Bremen. Chief of Bureau Advocates Change To Simplified Calendar Plan. How would it seem to have Christmas come on Wednesday," Jan. 4 ? Or New Year's Day on Jan. 11 ? And if the Fourth of July were celebrated on Friday, July 27, you'd begin to think something had surely gone wong with the men that make the calendars, wouldn't you? Yet these holidays and all the other days that we keep will be shifted around that way if the plans of some of the leading scientists and officials of the United States Weather Bureau are put into effect as they are now urged. For on January 1, 1928, it is possible that the world may begin to live by an entirely new calendar, a calendar in which a year will consist of thirteen equal months cf four weeks each and in which the same date of every month always will fall cn the fame day of the week. The year 1928 is advocated by Dr. C. F. Marvin, chief of the United States Weather Bureau, as the most favorable time to start the new calendar, since that year begins on Sunday. Consequently the first day of each of the thirteen months would fall On Sunday. Reform of the calendar is no new thing, writes Truman Stevens in the September issue of Popular Science Monthly. Since ancient times man has been trying to devise a calendar BILL BOOSTER SAYS WME "CD ?EE A FUE.

Ten automobiles were destroyed at j midnight Friday when lightning ; struck the John Ruch garage at Mil- j ford and the building burned to the ground. The loss to Mr. Ruch was estimated at about $10,000, while the total loss on automobiles and build ings is about $25,000. Only one i machine was saved from the burning building. The fire was discovered by Mrs. Elmer Langley of Milford, who was returning home from a social meeting at Goshen. She noticed flames coming from the roof of the building and gave the alarm. A pass ing interurban car helped wake the j volunteer fire fighters of the town by sounding its whistle. It said that Mr. Ruch's loss will probably put him out of business. The small amount of insurance carried will not be enough to pay his indebtedness, and the rest is a total loss.

You don't have to take our word for it when we tell you that Enquirer Want Ads do get results. Here's a letter from the South Bend Business College, frequent users of the little go-getters: "The dollar's worth cf classified ads just run in your paper was so satisfactory that we are enclosing herewith a two dollar bill and want to double the dose." That tells the story better than anything else could when the advertiser is satisfied it's pretty certain that he s:ot the result he was jifter. They'll th'MHHUrh do the same kind an body. of work for ' j j I s i j j Ellis Brown of Bremen and Willis Ruch of Milford were arrested for the theft of a Ford car owned by Charles Gilbert of Syracuse Saturday. Gilbert's car was taken at Milford and was recovered a short time later by Gordon Otstot, state auto policeman, who was called to Milford and came upon the car by accident as it was stopped at the side of the road. Otstot saw two men working at the car as he approached. They ran into a corn field as he came up. They had been stripping tha car of tires, battery and other parts Thq officer found that a key for the car had been purchosed in Milford and this led to the arrest of Ruch and Brown, who confessed. . When arraigned in . the court of Normal Groves at Milford they pleaded not guilty and were bound over to the circuit court under $2,000 bonds. You Never Can Tell What They'll Bring You When ycu send a little Enquirer want ad out after something, you can be pretty sure it will come home. Last week Mrs. Edward Reed lost a satchel full of baby clothes. She wondered if a want ad would do any good. It cost just twenty-five cents to try it. And Saturday she had the lost clothes back again. They do the work. Cars Bump At Corner But Nobody Is Hurt Automobiles driven by Jacob Ring-genberg and Ernest Hepler collided on South Center street Thursday evening when Mr. Ringgenberg attempted to turn west to his home. The Hepler machine was coming from the north and the cars crashed together at the intersection. Both cars were damaged by the collision, but neither of the drivers was ser-iousy hurt. Willie Schlemmer v Finds The Hidden Check. The Hidden Check attracted the usual flock of hunters Saturday, when it was hidden at H. L. Kin-zie's place on South Center street. Willie Schlemmer had found the extra letter and put them together. Twenty-five others had done the same thing and learned where the check was hidden. When the correct solutions were presented, Mr. Kinzie put the names of the contestants on slips of paper in a washing machine and stirred them up. Willie's name was the one to come out of the wash lueky Look for this week's solution on page 6. Only two more chances to win. that will keep pace with the sun, but thus far no method has been devised to bring about complete unity between man's and nature's reckoning of time without making complicated corrections. Thus in the present Gregorian calendar an extra day must be added to the year every four years to compensate for the difference in time between the calendar year and the astronomical year. Also the effect of dividing the year into months of various lengths is that no two consecutive months or years begin with the same day of the week. The thirteen-month calendar, which has been worked out by a French engineer named Delaporte, is said by scientists to possess many points of advantage over the present system. It starts the year on December 22, the first day of winter, and divides it into S64 days. Each month consists of four seven-day weeks and the year is further divided into four equal seasons of thirteen weeks each, spring beginning on the eighth day of the third month, summer on the fifteenth day of the seventh and autumn on the twenty-second day of the tenth month. There would be one extra day between the beginning and end of the year, which would not be included in calculating the year's length, and two of these extra days every fourth year. Exponents of the plan say it would be of great benefit to labor, inasmuch as it would insure men being paid the same monthly wage for the same amount of work instead of variable sums, as at present. From the point of view of religious observance the new calendar would cause all moveable feasts to fall on fixed days. The change from the present calendar, exponents of the new plan say, could be accomplished without confusion, and its adoption would result in simplifying many activities of present-day life.
