SCHLEMMER DIES SUDDENLY AT WATT TODAY NOON AMERICAN LEGION TO PUT ON SHOW FOR DEFENSE DAY 52nd Session of Marshall County Association Is On At County Seat. More than one hundred fifty teachers of the district schools of Marshall county are attending the fifty-second annual county institute at Plymouth this week. The sessions began in the court room at the court house Monday morning and are being held daily, morning anel afternoon. The enrollment on the opening elay totaled 150, a unusually large attendance for the first day. Fred L. Shaw, state superintendent of public instruction in South Dakota, is a stuelent of rural school problems and an able speaker on the subject. He pictures the opportunity and dignity of the rural teacher as excelled by none and takes the stand that it is not just a stepping stone to something better, but is . in itself the real big job. The other lecturer of the institute is Prof. A. B. VonOrmer, of the chair of philosophy at Juniata college, Huntington, Pa, His subject for the week is "The Problem of Moral Nature," which he takes up for consideration each afternoon. At the morning hour he speaks on other educational subjects. Prof. ynOrmer opened the Tuesday morning session of the institute with an address on "The Greatest Achievement in the History of Education," paying a fine tribute to Samuel G .Howe, less known husband of the famous Julia Ward HoWe, who in love and sympathy for unfortunate children established the first school for such children. Laura Bridgeman, a blind and deaf mute, became his first pupil. From the lesson of the life of this great man, saiel Prof. VonOrmer, we have developed our present day view of child education, in which the teacher must possess a real knowledge of child nature and be filled with a real love, sympathy and patience like unto that of the Great Teacher Himself. The singing of the institute is one of the pleasant and interesting features. Miss Carrie Boss of Plymouth has charge of this part of the institute work, and is making it not only a diversion from the regular work, but also' of practical value to teachers who wish to have singing in their schools. Today was trustees Day at the institute and a general visiting day. There is a larger attendance from the general public on this day each year, and the annual reunion of the teachers has become a yearly feature. County Supt. L. E. Steine-bach is presiding over the sessions each day. Bus Station To Move To Huff Garage Building The Bremen Transfer & Coal Co. j has leased the Huff garage building on East Plymouth street and will move into the new location October 1. After that date the South Bend buses will use the new location as a bus station. The coal company of-ffices will occupy the same building.

George Shnfer on the Ridsre, north-i west of Bremen. Ninety-four i.iem-bers of the relationship were present. Vacation days will come to an end this week for the school kids.

New equipment has been addd in the boys' section of the basement. Welcome Thompson Enters American Legion Home Welcome Thompson, who has been ill for several weeks with a mental ailment, was taken to Marion, Ind., Sunday, Where he entered the American Legion home for ex-service men. Dr. R. C. Denison and Ervin Leep-er, adjutant of the Bremen post of the . Legion, took Mr. Thompson to Marion and attended to the details of his entry in the home. Authorities at the home made a brief examination of Thompson and stated that they believed that he would be cured by a short stay there. Many cases much like his come to them, where victims of German gas or shell shock have become mentally deranged. Thompson's trouble began 'with a fall from a roof several months ago, from the effects of which he never fully recovered. The local post and his many friends here are hoping that the treatment at the soldiers, home will restore him to normal health. Those who wish to write to him, Mr. Leeper suggests, may aeldress him at Cottage 14, National Military Sani-taiium, Marion, Ind. Warren Manges Breaks Arm At Mint Still While helping to distill peppermint at the Ervin Ranstead pjace northwest of Bremen yesterday, T'ai-ren Manges fell from a rack en v. a ton and broke his right arrr above the elbow. He was brotight to Bremen, where the arm was set, and Was then taken to South Bend for X-ray examination. He will return today to the home of his wife's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Schutz. Mr. Manges had intended to leave next Tuesday for his new home at Branson, Mich., where he is to be pastor of a church, but the accident will probably delay his going for a week or two. A. & P. Manager Goes In Business For Himself Harry Smeltzer, manager of the Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co. store here since it was established a year ago, has resigned his place with that company and has moved to his old home at Winamac, Ind., where he will engage in a grocery business for himself. William Russell of Warsaw is temporarily in charge of the Bremen store, which is to be mananvd by Fred Price, who comes hciv .". .... After an opening round that looked as though the Greens were going to say it with many base hits, Pitcher Earle, former major league hurler, began to bear down and held the Bremen sluggers to seven seat-terel knocks in the game at South Bend Sunday. Three runs in the opening frame should have won the game for the Greens at that, but a misjudged fly in one inning a.idi a little wild pitching in another combined to g've the Benders two good innings, Letting them six runs and the game. Bremen started things in the first frame. Wertz was safe when Sammy Maulin committed one of his rare blunders. ' Sheehan got the benefit then of Earle's one and only pass, but Wertz was caught off second. Touhev's single sent Sheehan to third. Britten forced Touhey but Sheehan scored. Hall was safe on Koehier's error and Babe Fhilion connected for a two base drive that scoied Britten and Hall. Huff struck out, and the Bremen scoring was over for the day. The break of the game came in the sixth when Maulin drew a walk and advanced on Walters' single behind second. Shook was hit, filling the bases with nobody out. Gill slammed the first ball pitched to him to deep left field, bringing all three home and tieing the count. The next three were easy outs. In the seventh, with one on, Walters drove a fly to right field that was good for a home run, bringing in the two run margin that won the game for the South Bend men. A fast double play, Wertz to Sheehan to Thilion, and a beautiful throw by Britten to third, nailing his man, were features of the play. It was a j good ball game and attracted the best i crowd of the year for the Benders. Oswalt tossed a great game for Bremen until the sixth, when he seemed to go wild. In that inning he walked one and hit one ar.d the "Bender sluggers connected for a single and a triple at the right time. For South Bend, Earle gave the best display -of pitching they haVe had this year. He fanned twelve Greens during the matinee, which is itself a good day's work. Earle is a former major league pitcher, and has a world of stuff.

County Tax Levy Is 54c; Big Increase Over 1923 At the second meeting of the Marshall county council at Plymouth Tuesday to pass on the tax levy for next year, a reduction was made in the oi-iginal levy of 75c on the hundred dollars to 54c.

Train How John Doran, 75, Civil war veteran, came to meet death on the main tracks of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad three miles east of Mil-ford Junction on Sunday moi-ning is still a mystery. Rairoad officials could cast no light on circumstances of the death. No note, indicating suicide, was found on the body. Doran was traveling from Santa Monica, Calif., to New York. Train No. 16, east bound, on which he was! traveling, stopped at a point east of Mil ford Junction near the scene of his death. From papers found on his person it was learned that he was either just leaving a soldiers' home or just returning. The body was taken to Syracuse where Undertaker Robert Fletcher is trying to locate relatives. The Bremen post of the American Legion will sponsor the showing of "The Man Without A Country," a fdm version of the great patriotic story by Edward Everett Hale, at the Gem theatre here on National Defense Day, Friday, Sept. 12. The show will offer a special feature of the evening in the form of a patriotic address by an out of town speaker, who will be sent here in connection with the county observance of the day. Sam Tomlinson of Plymouth, chairman for Marshall county of the plans for the day, has promised officers of the local post that he will send a speaker for the evening. The picture itself is a story that has become a classic in American patriotic literature. It tells the life story of Lieut. Nolan, an officer of the American Army, who spoke lightly of his country, his government and his flag during a court martial. In a moment of disgust he expi-ess-ed a desire never to hear the name of the United States, or to see its flag, again. The judge of the court martial fixed his own hasty words as the penalty, and Nolan became a "man without a country." The story of his after life, of his pathetic desire to hear again the name of his country and to feast his eyes with just a glimpse of Old Glory, offers a lesson in patriotism and love of country that is well worth seeing. The Legion will have charge of the ticket sale and the proceeds will go to the post treasury. Corn Crop May Be Better Than Expected Reports from farmers of Marshall county indicate that there may be a better crop than Was hoped for earlier in the year, in spite of the late start and cold spring. Two weeks more of warm weather, it is said, will put much of the corn beyond the danger point. At best, the indications are that there will not be more than a fifty Iercent crop.
