THE RAPID CITY DAILY JOURNAL Skaters in 144-Hour Grind What is said to be the first six-day ice skating race in the United States recenty got under way in Syracuse, N. Y. Above is a scene as Bobby McLean, former speed champion, led the pack around one of the turns. The race is conducted on somewhat the same lines as a six-day bicycle race, skaters competing in two-man teams and relieving each other at intervals. Because of shortage of this year, there will be no 4-H club camp in the county, and it is doubtful if there will be any in the Black Hills or west river country this season, Mr.

The morning will be taken up with demonstrations and other club work, a picnic will be held at noon and the afternoon will be devoted to recreational features.

GERMAN LEFTISTS FACE FINAL FIGHT Berlin, Mar. 1-(P)-Leftist and centrist parties of entered the last stages struggle for existence today with their newspapers silenced and their assemblies and communications shut off by the strictest measures of represion since war.

While the Hitler government insists next Sunday's election of new national and Prussian state parliaments are to be held as scheduled, the chief of the government's information bureau indicated the balloting will be meaningless. "Parliamentary and democratic times are over for Germany," declared Walter Funk, head of the government press department. Meanwhile, there were no signs to give credence to wild rumors that the week-end would bring a terrible fate to the foes of Chancellor Hitler. (The London Herald reported today what decalled a plot of Hitlerites in to "carry out during the coming week-end the most staggering massacre the world has known." It said "all proleaders and Jews" in large gressive, towns were already listed as intended victims.) Foreign correspondents are warded by a high government official to refrain henceforth from using news from "malignant sources." Pressed for further explanation, he said no censorship was planned. The number of arrests resulting from the investigation instituted after the burning of the reichstag Monday night totaled several hundred- all alleged communists--today.

Government officials blamed the fire, of incendiary origin, on a communist plot. Seventeen persons were invloved in setting fire to the building, the government investigators claimed. Two members of the last reichstag were Involved. It was believed the building could not be used for at least a year. The damage was estimated at $1,500,000.

There was no insurance to cover it.

MADE GOOD MONEY HAULING TIMBER Deadwood, March 1-Wyatt Earp figured the boys might have overlooked something when Bat Masterson, returning from the gold fields in Deadwooa, told him that every claim was staked. Wyatt had left Dodge City in 1876 when news of the gold rush in the Hills reached him, according Stuart Blacks N. Lake, whose book "Wyatt Earp, Frontier has just been published.

Earp reached Deadwood late in the fall of '76 and found that the boys had overlooked something. The absence of winter pasturage and the high cost of feed had caused the miners to send their horses over the muontains for wintering. Waytt's horses were the only ones in camp. He fololwed a hunch and contracted for a supply of wood at two dollars a cord. Deadwood had no teams to bring in the wood with and it was a cold winter.

Earp rigged up a sled and hired a man to help him. He hauled sometimes five loads a day, or ten cords, and re ceived $12 per cord 80 that his horses more than earned their board. One night a gambler wanted wood when it was 40 below. Earp brought it in for him so that he could keep his game going, but charged him $100 per cord and $10 for his helper. He came through the winter with a profit of $5,000.

Earp's reputation as a gunman had followed him from Dodge and when the Wells Fargo Express company was faced with the problem of taking $200,000 worth of bullion out of the Black Hills, without being stopped by road agents, which were then common, they persuaded Earp, who was planning to leave, to wait until the bullion was ready. The company posted a notice that Earp would ride shotgun and although two lines of riders followed the stage at some distance, the trip to Cheyenne, was made with Earp firing only a horse ridden by the agents, one shot, and that evidently the two lines converged, went into consultation and were seen no more. Earp's belief was that in dealing with such men, it paid to take the initiative. He carried that principle out in his later days in Dodge and Tombstone, where he spent the remainder of his life. FUNERAL Charles Myer Funeral services for Charles Myer, who died in his room in the Harney hotel early Monday, will be held Thursday afternoon at two o'clock at Behren's mortuary.
