Each heads a party of fans headed for the Minnesc£a-Notre Dame football game. They have seats somewhere In St. Paul in the vicinity of the stadium playing field. • • • While Notre Dame is trying to collect a bounty on the Minnesota Gophers Saturday it might be well to have the bounty on the local pocket gohper placed back to ten cents per. A reduction of fifty percent is small when a boy takes in one gopher but ten gophers cut from a dollar to fifty cents means something. Anyway that's the way the kids look at it. The roadsides, fields, lawns and pastures are littered with fresh black mounds created by the increasing pests. • m • Fuzzy of the Silver Gray removed the screen doors at the late cold spell believing flies and small Insects were a thing of the past. Not so. The flies and box elder bugs like to eat with him. Fuzzy plans to stencil the outlines of spiders over the walls hoping the flies will take the hint and skiddo. » * • An example and a Rood one, of community cooperation for the welfare of its people can be seen in the planning and action at the soft water pond regarding the skating rink.

Al Ithe worry now seems to be waiting for nature to get cold. Get yohr skates ready. Everyone is invited. • * • Druggists, load up on liniment and rubbing alcohol These middle aged who cannot be convinced they are getting old will need massages and rub downs me morning after the first skating party. A few tried it last year on the river above tlie dam and found their muscles bound up for days. W * * Councilman Tunney Hu?nhold Invited guests to a wild duek dinner. The ducks were placed in the electric stove, the clock set for the shut-off of current at the allotment of time necessary to cook the ducks and the party went for a ride. Returning to a gorgeous feast they found the ducks well done. Done to a crisp. The stove still heating. The clock failed to stop the juice. A gust of air and the ducks were no more. Hamburger was the stooge. • • • Blood from the nose nmrared over face and hands is a gruesome sight. It has its day though, as Bud Me- Neill can rightfully say. In one of the finest pass snatches seen in many a day on a high school football field, Bud went high into the air to snag the ball, hang onto it for what may have been the difference in winning or losing the game at Hampton Friday. And he gives credit for that catch to a bloody nose. Sticky red in coagulation form on the hands made that ball stay there. • • • Oru {Carson, winner of the gurss- ing contest of football games in this paper, is going to see the big game at Minneapolis Saturday. Her husband, Bob, who doesn't know e as much as she about the game has promised her this treat. And, if you can believe him, it is not a guessing test with Ora, it is knowing from study that ranks ner as a topnotcher. • • • Ralph Miedke has a new canvas boat.
