··' 'THE HELENA DAILY INDEPENDENT. FRIDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 18, 1929 BEQUETTE AND MAKES REJOIN SQUAD. Bozeman, Oct. 17.--Bobcat preparations for the "big game" in Butte on Oct. 26 against Montana State university were slowed up here this week when it was announced that Harrell Renn, first string tackle, had suffered a broken wrist bone in the Brigham Young game. Formerly it had been thought that Renn had only a sprained wrist. He probably will be out of uniform until after the Butte game. With the Bobcats given the short end of the score forecasts for the Butte game, Coach S. R. Dyche admits that the loss of Renn will further cut down Bobcat hopes of a .surprise against the Grizzlies, but the canny Bobcat coach, realizing that a victory over the university team would be the biggest football victory of years here, is still far from being discouraged. What may be sufficient consolation for the loss of Renn is the appearance this week of Jess Bequette, letter man at tackle, back in a Bobcat uniform and the announcement that Ernest Mares, husky Helena letter man at tackle, may be out again this week and ready to play against the Grizzlies. With these two men back in the lineup and in physical condition the Bobcat line! should play its best game of the] year agairst the university line. The Bobcats rest this week, as far as games go, but they are working harder than ever before this season for the game on Oct 26. With the odds against them strongly for the first time in three years, they will enter this game in a frame of mind to make a desperate bid for a surprise victory. El' MEET ON FIELD THY ftT 4 SMEf MADE OF FORMER LUMINARIES, NOW CONSIDERED LUNATICS FOR TRYING JT f WILL ATTEMPT TO DEFEAT THE BENGALS. Helena higli school's fighting Bengals will have a tough assignment this afternoon when they clash with the Alumni team at 4 o'clock on Scullon field. The game is free which should assure a tremendous crowd but the attraction is furthered by the fact that Alumni, having been spurred on by little remarks dropped here and there and especially at "Heinle's," is out for blood, raw and unrefined. Let it be explained that "Heinle's" Is a cider joint where either you do or you don't and the sport- Ing blood of Helena M has been wont to make its' presence not only noticeable but overflowing. This is largely because a number of the chief soda jerkers have been Bengals in their heydey.

B. C, Oct. 17.--(AP) --Frank Slavin, f a m o u s heavyweight of the John L. Sullivan era of pugilism, died In a military hospital today after an illness of more than a year. Slavin, whose real name was Sydney Cornstalk, was born in Malt- land, New South Wales, January-5, 1863, about four years after Sullivan first saw the light of day in Boston. He began his professional Tight- ing career in 1885 and during the next 22 years fought most of the top-notchers, Including Jem Smith, 1 Jake Kilraln, Peter Jackson, Bob Armstrong, Frank Craig and 'Jim New York, Oct. 17. -- (AP)--The plans of Miller Huggins for the Yankees were so far-seeing that the midget manager actually provided, as long as five jears ago, a course of action to be followed in the event of his own death--which occurred three weeks ago. Jacob Ruppert, commander-in- chief of the Ruppert rifles, had such great faith in even the slightest suggestion of his diminutive field mar- shall that he faithfully followed Huggins' lead in announcing tonight that Robert J. Shawkey would be the next manager of the Yankees. Fletcher Decline* The veteran pitcher and recent coach of pitchers for the Yanks was second choice of the mighty atom to succeed to the managerial mantle. Arthur Fletcher was first in the Huggins handicapping, but the former Giant infielder and Philadelphia manager told Colonel Ruppert he would prefer to remain in his present capacity as coach of the Yankees. The appointment of Shaw key was a surprise to baseball circles as the names of Fletcher, Robert J. Connery, president of the St. Paul club, and Eddie Collins, the Athletic infielder and coach, had monopolized the speculation regarding the next leader of the club. It was recalled, however, that both Huggins and Ruppert always had thought highly of Shawkey's abilities both on the I field and in the dugout, and that the , ,, . .. . _ . 1 late manager welcomed the former London, Oct. l7.-(AP)_Prankiej pitcher b j fc m{o the foM a; ^ Genaro of New York outpointed Er- j last 5pring d{ter Bob had finisned his nie Jarvls, English flyweight, in a active career in Montreal. 15-round bout at Albert hall to- N OW ;,, Q ue bec Tenaro won about as he pleased, S ^ y sig " ed af 5 Ontract for ° ne taking 13 of tie 15 rounds.

Butte, Oct. 17.--Recent exposure of a clever ring of confidence men in Montana who have fleeced thou sands of dollars from persons, in eluding Butte residents, will causi the crooks to cease operations ii these parts, at least for the time be ing, it is believed. This was the belief of police am county officials today. However, a 1 the same time authorities were reported as taking special steps to combat any fresh outbreak of the gang. The apprehension of such crooks according to authorities, is one o the most difficult tasks confronting authorities, they say, due to the victims failing to report that they have been robbed.

W. Smith. An investigation is being made at the present time among the prisoners who were in jail when Smith escaped. Officers believe lie could n e v e r have dug the hole through the steel and cement of the floor unless he had been furnished with some sort of tools, probably brought in from outside. It is also thought that Smith had assistance in the actual work of digging the hole. Visiting has been discontinued at the county jail since the time of Smith's escape.

Smith of the United States Military academy at West Point and for the first time since the service schools broke off athletic relations nearly iwo years ago, an early reconciliation appeared likely. In a 300-word telegram to Rear Admiral S. S. Robinson, superin- ;endent of the U. S. Naval academy at Annapolis, General Smith made .he outright suggestion "that football games be lesumed." Concerning tha matter of eligibility standaids on which the Army and Navy split, General Smith proposed "that any member of either body, who is declared eligible by his Academy authorities, will be eligible to play in this game." The Army has always asserted its right to allow transfer athletes from collegiate institutions the opportunity to compete on the same terms as any other student. The Navy has held out for the "three- year rule" limiting its men to three yeais of varsity competition in all.

DMT TILKS e Kitchen It's rather interesting to consider that what was superstition with certain tribes of American Indians is fact with us in the light of scientific investigation. For instance, the Indians believed the cranberry to have certain virtues which would prolong life. We know that cranberries contain \itamins which make them an extremely valuable food. These berries help decidedly in maintaining a balanced diet It 15 by the careful combination of foods that people Keep in good health, feeling "fit" and ready for the day's work. Berries Retain Flavor. Cranberries keep excellently, and unless frost-bitten will remain cn^p and full flavored for a long time They arc so easy to use, requiring no paring or secdings before cooking. Thorough washing and looking over for soft fruit -- and 1 the berries are ready to cook. Minneapolis, Oct. 17. -- (AP)-There need be no fear that a tariff on lerro-manganese would affect unfavorably the Minnesota farmer who uses steel 'products, according to Edward W Davis, director of the Minnesota mines experiment station at the University of Minnesota, who said that only 15 pounds · of ferro-manganese are employed on the manufacture of a ton of steel. With a tariff of one cent a pound, this would amount to about 15 cents on a ton of steel worth between ?60 and 570, depending on the form in which is was purchased, Mr. Davis said. Meanwhile, millions of tons of low grade manganese ore He untouched in Minnesota, especially in the Cuyuna range district, because at the present market those who mined it would just about break even, without making any profit, he explained. Advantages of encouraging the manganese industry would b e doubled, Mr. Davis said, first in the development of a new extractive industry in Minnesota and also In that it would make, available a domestic supply of ferro-manganese for use in the American steel industry in case war cut off the foreign supply. r Ferro-manganese now used in ·steel making in the United States comes almost wholly from Russia, K "I GET ESTATE; WIFE SI Butte, Oct. 17.--Leaving $1 to the' wife, whom he once sued for divorce in 1920, Robert Crozier, former prominent. Elkhorn mining man, left the balance of his $10,000 estate to four "dear friends." This was revealed when Crozier's will was filed in district court yesterday for probate. The will was dated May 1, 1929. Crorier, owner of 14 unpatented and cne patented mining claim in the Elkhnrn district, west of Butte, died Oct. 8. His will designated the sum of "$1 and no more to my wife. Nan Crozier." He named -M. A. Bornholdt, Butte woman chiropractor, as executor of the will and divided his minirg claims between James A. Logan, Stella May Logan, Angus C. Reed and M. A. Bornholt. In addition, 900 shares of the Boston and Moniana Mining corporation and 3,300 shares of the Boston and Montana Mines and Milling company were left to Angus C Reed, whom , Crozier specified had! been "kind" to him during his last illness. _Tho Croziers had marital difficulties in 1920, a check of court records revealed. He filed for divorce from Mrs. Nan Crozier Jan. 15, 1920. Mrs. Crozier did not contest the action ond he was granted a divon^ a few weeks later. In September, Xfrs. Crozier appeared in court, and after representing that she was not aware of the divorce action, had the case reopened. September 13, 1920, a decree was made by Judge Edwin M. Lamb, dismissing Crozier's divorce action, clearing Mrs. Crowder of his charges against her and awarding her costs of the action. A few hours after the case was dismissed Mrs. Crozier filed suit for divorce from her husband, charging crueity, but withdrew the action two days later Since that time and up- to his -death last October 8, the couple are said to have lived together. Dies of Heart Trouble While - [Trailing Sheep Broadus, Oct. 17.-WhiIe driving sheep along the road, Charles Man- kanemycr, 63, was suddenly overcome with heart attack, laid down by the roadside and death followed al~most immediately. Just before this happened he had talked with a neighbor and asked him to help him with a sick sheep, and when the man returned in a few minutes he found Mr, Mankancmyer lying lifeless on the ground. Coroner Charles H. James and Under-Sheriff \V. H. Goodspeed were summoned and after a careful examination a heart attack was assigned as causing the death. rich deposits make possible the export of manganese material to this country more cheaply than it can bo mined here. Use of ferro-manganese in steel making is as a purifier. The ferromanganese combined with oxygen m the steel and eliminates bubbles fiom the molten steel, which would otherwise be rolled out into tiny cavities, creating permanent struc- ural weakness in the finished product. Even Nature Fooled Into Spring Habits Butte, Oct. 17.--The mild spring- like weather of the past few days, natives admit, has been realistic-so realistic in fact that it has fooled even the trees. A week ago a Canadian poplar tree in the front yard of L. F Gehng's property, 3017 Paxori started blooming. First the buds' appeared, then the tree started leaving. The leaf growth is now far advanced. A like report came yesterday from Mrs. C. W. Sch- iclcentang, 2647 Placer. CRANBERRY ICE.

As "green" vegetables become scarce, cranberries can be used to 'urnisli mineral salts to advantage Cranberry sauce or jelly adds zest o any meat as well as turkey. Salads, puddings and relishes arc dehc- ous and colorful ulicn made with he cheerful red berry. Whenever cranberries are used in a. sauce of any kindl the sugar should not be added until the fruit is cooked ender. This method produces the mest flavor an'd! uses less sugar. Cranberry ice can be served in place of sauce or jelly at a formal dinner or makes an excellent dessert fter a hearty meal. A spoonful of vhipped cream makes a delightful garnish for a dessert. Butte, Oct 17--Butte people are warned about buying their Thanksgiving turkey from strangers If they do, sheriff's ufdccrs mav come along and take it off the dining room table, classifying it as stolen goods. It seems that Herman Flcmming, a Reed Point farmer, had 75 turkcs which he was fattening for Thanks- gning. stolen from his turkey coop the other night. Sheriff Ed Brannin ot Big Timber notified local officers of this fact jesterday and asked them to be on the lookout for the missing gobblers and also the robbers. Officers here are conducting a search for the turkeys. OIL DIULLISG BOOM IX NEBRASKA IS PKEDICTED Lincoln, Neb., Oct. 17.--(AP)--Dr. George B. Condra, of the State university said today he had learned from oil company representatives that their firms would spend $1,500,000 sinking test wells in Nebraska during ths next 18 months, Ten wells are now being drilled, he said, and more outfits and geologists are coining into the state. Dr. Condra's investigations linking the oil-bearing strata o£ Kansas and Oklahoma with that o£ this state, ho stated, have given the searchers a definite basis for their work in the southwestern part of Nebraska. Unusual Prohibition Case Is Brought Out Great Falls, Oct. 17.-A prohibition case declared to be most unusual brought before the federal court in years was disposed of Wednesday afternoon after considerable discussion as to the feasibility of a man having 695 gallons of grape wine for his own use and of the alcoholic content if that liquor. The defendant in the action was Dcrick Juhl, farmer, northwest ot Scobey, and was represented in court by John Slattery, local attorney. T.^J. Winters, customs patrolman, testifying in this case told of going to the farm of Juhl and after a short search finding 695 gallons of grape w i n e concealed in a straw pile. Labels on. the 18 barrels showed that seven were made in 1927 and five in 1928, the balance not being marked. Counsel for the defendant said Juhl had never .sold any of the wine, but had made it for his own use. The wine was at first placed in the basement, but due to the temperature did not properly ferment and wa-s transferred to a straw pile. It was also pointed out that more room was desired in th-, basement for potatoes and garden truck. An analysis of the alcoholic content of the wine showed 20 per cent, the agent testified, but counsel for the defendant claimed that the wine had never been touched because it was sour and not fit to drink. He also contended that when wine reached a point beyond 16 per cent that it was no longer good for beverage purposes. Considering the action a technical violation of the prohibition law, the court fined the defendant $75 but imposed no jail sentence.
