And between the hour of 8.30 and 9:30 just try to find a place to plant the old bus on a Saturday night where you might be within two blocks of the store or office you wish to visit.

Would You Guess In order to satisfy that curiosity and to ease the wonder of others we are going to give a year's subscription to the per son who sends, phones, or mails the nearest correct number of cars in a given area on Saturday night, Nov. 7, to this office and which must reach us not-later than Thursday, November 12, at 5:00 p. m. We took time but and counted the cars 9:00 and 9:30 Saturday night. Nov. 7. And we don't mind telling you we would never have guessed within 300 the number of cars here at that time. Check the Area Beginning on Ridgley street we drove the length of Nebraska street going east tq Minnesota, count.'-ng the cars on both sides of the street; then we came back through State street from Minnesota to Ridgley; then we turned east again on Call street to Minnesota; then we drove the two blocks of street north and south Including Call, State and Nebraska on all the intervening streets between Minnesota and Ridgley, counting cars on both sides of the street. That's a total of sixteen 'blocks. How many cars did we find. It's your guess. A year's subscr.'.ption , to the nearest correct. Write, phone or bring your answer to this office not later than five o'clock Thursday afternoon.

It is hoped that the basketball and wrestling teams may continue a nearby schedule with neighboring schools. If interested citizens would cooperate by furnishing transportation to these nearer towns a wtater schedule of sports could be maintained. For instance, it has been suggested by interested citizens that car owners make one trip during the season with the teams. In other words a group of car owners furnish the transportation by each one making one. trip during the season, carrying say four members to one town, and for the next game another carry four members of the team, and so on, until the season^ schedule -had .been completed. Superintendent Laing would be glad to hear from any car owner who is Interested in school athletics to make a trip for the boys. It would be a great help for the athletic group of the school, would be deeply appreciated by the tooys and the parents who want to see the athletic schedules ma?-ntained during the coming season.
