Their ad called for 10,000 even All Stores Reported A s Better Than At Previous Bargain Days. Thursday, May 28, went down on record in the minds of the communi- ty's childhood with an impression that years will not obliterate. Thursday was Community Sales Day and hun- dreds of youngsters were the honor guests of Ortonville business men, in the staging of a shower of penny and diamond ring tickets from an aero- plane. When the plane, piloted by Jack Anderson, with Harry Peterson seated in the cock-pit, drove to a few feet of second street in the courthouse block, a scream went from the youg- stes that could be heard for blocks, in their excitement and anxiety to out-do each other in the free-for all scramble for the valuable tickets. Four thousand tickets were dropped fro the plane, two thousand repre- senting new pennies and 2,000 good for a diamond ring drawing at Palm's Jewelry Store. Four swoops were made by Anderson in "planting" the tickets and that he did a good job of 'it was clearly shown when the tick- ets were handed in. Only 155 tickets of the 4,000 were uncollected. Notwithstanding intermittant show- ers during the day that caused slip- pery roads there were many farmers in town and buying was brisk. The Ortonville Ice Cream and But- ter Company reported receiving on that .day more than 8,000 pounds of pounds at 5 Cents per pound above market price. Fred Pflueger, man- ager, said that had the weather been favorable he felt sure that the com- pany's storage tanks would have been much too small. Many of the patron on that day were from points near Nassau and Milbank, he said. "It was the only Market Day in the history of Ortonville in point of sales that meant business for us," said Emil Ostlind, of the Ortonville Implement Company. Cash sales amounting to $914,00 were made by that company, which included the sale of another Totan tractor with plows to the Big Stone Canning Cordpany. Mail orders were received from Wil- mot and Louisburg by the Ortonville Drug Company, in response to their advertisement. "We had a good day and are well pleased w/th every feat- ure as carried out," Manley Alsaker said. Reports fram nearly every store were of a like nature as those given above. Mr. Palm expressed himself in the words of Teddy Roosevelt,-- "Delighted." He said, "It was one of the best days in the history of our store in number of sales." Kollitz, The Pioneer Stare, Orton's, Saeger's, Millinery Stores, Grose- nick's, New Style Shop, Gunderson, Drug Co., Schoen-Swenson, Alvah Matthews and both hardware all reported lively buying also. Ad}ing to the liveliness of the da. was the music furnished by Belling-- ham's 22 piece band, which came over of their, own accord. The band was advertising the Field Day that is,to II I II Ortonvflle High Offered St. Teresa Scholarship Ortonville High School has been of- fered a college scholarship by the College of Saint Teresa of Winona, Minnesota, which is to be awarded to one of the "honor" girls in this June's graduating class. The holaship covers the full mount of the tuition for the college year,valued at $150 for the present,and may be renewed for three consecutive years if the re- cipient continues to maintain a mark- ed high rank in her work. Similar scholarship offers have been extended to a selected number of high schools in this section of Minnesota in order to encourage young women with an ambition for leadership and service to qualify for the many pro- fessions now open to college trained vomen.

Lake Is Full of Pike, It's Knowing Where They Hide Don't say, !'Fishin' " to A. A. Mittel- steadt of Bellingham, if you want to: be a t riend of his, 'cause he's just! naturally plumb gone sick of fishing. And he has a reason to be. He caught i so many pike in Big Stone Lake the l past week that he likens it to sitting! at a table and watching the other fel- low fill up on pancakes after you've i had your fill.  On Saturday, last, Mr. Mittelsteadt, in cmpany with a friend whose first name is "Ole" and whose last name is missing, and a friend of his, whose name is unbeknown, tried their luck in the vicinity of McGee's Park. And tuck it was. They landed with a string of 35 good sized pike and sev- eral large pickerel. When they return- ed to Bellingham with their catch" ac- quaintances Ohere "kidded" them. In fact they said, "It can' be done again." Just to show their friends that they were not "hit and miss' fishermen they came back on Mon- day. That is, "Ole" and Mitteleadt did, and Mr. Braun, owner of McGee's Park states that they landed on that day with 29 more pike--just lacking one of being the limit.
