In an urgen message to Minnesota hegionaires to help units and gain new members for the Legion Auxiliary, State President Dr. Helen Hughes Hielscher of Mankato writes, "It is a privilege to belong to the Ameri- can Igion Auxiliary. Let all elgible women in your community know it. You tell them buddysoldiers' moth- ers, wives, sisters, and daughters. Tell them there are soldiers dying without help or comfort from their own because there are not enough units or members of the Legion Auxil- iary cover the whole state.

Operating for the state of Minne- sota under contract with it, the Ran- dall Brothers were scheduled to be- gin Thursday, with the netting of bull- heads in Artichoke lake. Pi'ans of this work and a statement of fishing conditions in the lake were given out by MalcoIm Randall, one of the firm, who had a part in the preliminary pre- parations. In the taking of bullheads from the lake, fike nets will be used. The fike nets to be used by the Randalls are constructed with leaders or wing's about forty feet long, the two leader. being joined by a sac about fifteen feet long, and held in shape by hoop:. These will be set along the shore of the lake. / Headquarters were established at the Kaercher farm on the east side of the lake the first part of the week. About twelve men will be employed i for this work. Only bullhetads will be taken from the lake. InveStigation of the fishing conditions there, supported by other evidence, has disclosed the fact that the lake is overstocked with fish, par- ticularly bullheads, and that a lack of vegetation has caused the loss of a large number including many game fish. , The shore in many places is strewn with dead fish, which from all indi- cations was caused by this lack of Everett Randall, and under the supex- vision of O. S. Briggs, game warderf for the state at large. On Tuesd" of this week Malcolm Randall left with a crew of men for Herman, Minnesota, where they will sein three lakes near there for bull- heads. The places where they will sein are Cottonwood, Grant, and Long Lakes. They will use only one outfit. In thce lakes th(ae is hardly any other fish than bullheads, and but very few gmne fish. When the lakes have been cleared of bullheads, the state will plant game fish. This work, like that in Artichoke lake, is being done by the state, thru contract with the Randall Brothers. Malcolm Randall will have charge of the work at these lakes. It will be done under the supervision of Paul. Goodsell, game warden for that dis- triet. Begin Construction of New Road At Graceville With the grading of hesfate road between Barry and a point west af Graceville practically completed, the Schoen-Larkin Construction company will begin the construction of the new section of the road running into Grace- ville. The change in the course of the road as it nears Graceville will shorten the distance between "Graceville and Barry about two miles, it was an- nounced. Two bad railroad crossings will also be eliminated. Plans for this change were drawn up the first part of the year, and later approved by the State Highway Department. The new course will go east and northeast from the corner where the road now turns north, following the West and north shores of West Toqua and joining with the avenue along the north shore of Toqua lake.

"The Legion five-fold adjusted com- pensation bill now before Congress represents the payment of a just and acknowledged obligation the country owes to those who have served it. It is a debt acknowledged by the people I wherever the matter has been sub- ject to popular vote. It is a debt the American Legion, with every resource at its command, will work to have re- paid by action of the present congress, f It is vital to our security that the g0v- 1 eminent show that in return for indi- vidual loyalty, bravery given, it stands willing to accord individual jus- tice to those who have served it." to come now when the work ii begin- ninE, and not to be like the men who wanted to enlist when the enemy was on the run. For at least 12 years we must strain at a task always grow- ing. There will be no slacking. Let your women relatives know of our work. Death and "disease take no va- cation. Have them join us now." Captain George Mallon, one of Per- shing's 100 heroes and candidate ]'or Lieutenant Governor of Minnesota at the-last election, who has just return- ed from Kansas, states. "You have heard the statements that the Ameri- can Legion tarred and feathered world war veterans in Kansas. Those state- ments were lies. The men"who cre- ated the dturbance were thugs hired by interests who wrapped themselves in a cloak of loyalty." When Judge Eli Torrance, National Commander of the Grand Army of I  @ the Republic, began his address at the Oedication of the Victory Memor- 9 ial Way in Minneapolis on June 11, he turned toward the ranks of overseas veterans and extended a greeting to the Amegican Legion, adding, 'oro you must be committed the priceless jewel of representative government regula- ted by law. You must remain stead- fast and unafraid regardless of every assault that hatred and malice may devise to undermine and destroy the heritage for which you so hobly fought and in defense of which so many of your heroic comrades poured out the warm blood of their youthful hearts." Harford MacNiaer, Commander  of the American Legion of [owa, said in part, "Loving hands will care for this Hying memoriaL*o the dead, the hands of Minnesotan's-for generations to rome. Children will visit this driveway and in these trees find typified the spirit of America; and as they grow, so will the mcumry of these men and women who died in the cause of liber- ty. To all true Americans these trees will e a symbol of the bravery and devotion with which these men laid down their lives that we might live. We of the American Legion have had an example set us by the Grand Ar- my of the Republic, and if we give up to that example and to the ideals of these men who ost their lives, no man need fear for tle future of Amer- ica." France's representative; M. de Fontnouville, said, "Do not think that France will eer forget. No Frnch- man will ever forge that the sons of Minnesota and of America died for him and for hi.children. I can as- sure you that the American soldiers will always be remembered on our Memorial Day, when we honor our own heroes. France prays for you as she does for her own children. We have beauty in our country but nothing umre beautiful than this driveway will be and no sons more brave, more fitted to receive its dedication in their ]honor." Congressman Royal C. Johnson of South Dakota, speaking at the Vic- tory Memorial Way dedicaion, paid tribute to the late Commander F. W, Galbraith, saying, "I wish that you knew of the great heart of Comman- der Galbraith and of some of the things he felt about the war and the sacrifices which tho who died made. He thot of the man who came home on the last transports, slowly moving transports, carrying men who cou?d not see the flag. They were men who could not come home when bands were playing and flags flying. They were met by few, but they were vnet by the spirit of the American Legion all over this country. It is that spirit which moves this city when it pre- pares and dedicates this driveway in their memory.  WEDDINGS 4  Nickiseh.Brown. In the presence of only immediate friends, Miss Mildred Carolyn Brown, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ed. Brown of Ortonville, was united in marriage to Oscar Carl Niekisch, on Sunday, June 12, at 1:30 o'clock. The Roy. Mr. Bartling preformed the ceremony which took place on the porch of the residence of the bride's parents. Dec- orations were of hnple garden roses. The bridal bouquet was also of roses. The bride is a graduate othe Or- tonville high school and has been teaching school in Grant county, South Dakota, for the past three years. The groom is an ex-service man, having belonged to the 167th Infantry Band, and served eighteen months overseas. The bride and groom were attended by Arthur Nickisch, brother of the groom, and Miss Marion Brown, twin sister of the bride. At the present they are visiting at the home of the groom's parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Freeman, until their plans for the future are more com- plete. Card of Thanks.

Altho there are some game fish there, they have not thrived well, and are in a poor eSndition due to the large number of bullheads there. When the netting of bullheads has reduced their number so that they will no longer be detrimental, the state will plant game fish in Artichoke lake. It is now planned to plant about 50,000 bass and an equal number of crappies there this fall. Next spring from 50,000 to 100,000 pike will be planted there, it now being too late to plant pike and get good results, it is said. The Randall Brothers have extended an invitation to the people of that lo- cality and of the surrounding terri- tory to visit their camp at any time and watch the netting operations. The bullheads will be shipped to Chicago and eastern markets.

A. S. HALLS Ortonville Lumber Prices Are Down to such a low point, that to either hope or wait for a lower price would be unreasonable. Right now there exists a real opportunity to save by buying, as prices are bound to advance when building activities make their demand felt. Home building costs are not anything like as high as you think. Lumber is cheaper than we ever expected to see it, or ever expect to see it again. Let us show you many pictures and plans of modern homes that we have gathered for your benefit. If you don't own your own home, you really owe it to yourself to talk the matter of building costs over with experienced au- thorities. We have made a close.study of all practical and eco- nomical uses to which the material we sell can be put. We can be real helpful in showing you how to "cut according to your cloth," and our best advice and assistance is yours for the ask- ing, and we don't expect you to feel under any obligations to us either.

Com- mander Emery held the office of Na- tional Vice-Commander. His home was in Grand Rapitls, Michigan. iie was wounde4 in the Meuse-Argonn offensive. Thomas J.

"If I were to state in a few words what I believe to be the greatest sere-! ice the American Legion has rendered our country, I would say that it has been the carrying out by the Legion of the mandate of its constitui,n, which hds instilled in the hearts of former service men and women a sense of individual obligation to the co,h- inanity, state and nation, it is the determination of the Legion t9 empha- size always a more vivid conception by each citizen of his personal obliga- tion of service to his country.

In an urgen message to Minnesota hegionaires to help units and gain new members for the Legion Auxiliary, State President Dr. Helen Hughes Hielscher of Mankato writes, "It is a privilege to belong to the Ameri- can Igion Auxiliary. Let all elgible women in your community know it. You tell them buddysoldiers' moth- ers, wives, sisters, and daughters. Tell them there are soldiers dying without help or comfort from their own because there are not enough units or members of the Legion Auxil- iary cover the whole state.

Operating for the state of Minne- sota under contract with it, the Ran- dall Brothers were scheduled to be- gin Thursday, with the netting of bull- heads in Artichoke lake. Pi'ans of this work and a statement of fishing conditions in the lake were given out by MalcoIm Randall, one of the firm, who had a part in the preliminary pre- parations. In the taking of bullheads from the lake, fike nets will be used. The fike nets to be used by the Randalls are constructed with leaders or wing's about forty feet long, the two leader. being joined by a sac about fifteen feet long, and held in shape by hoop:. These will be set along the shore of the lake. / Headquarters were established at the Kaercher farm on the east side of the lake the first part of the week. About twelve men will be employed i for this work. Only bullhetads will be taken from the lake. InveStigation of the fishing conditions there, supported by other evidence, has disclosed the fact that the lake is overstocked with fish, par- ticularly bullheads, and that a lack of vegetation has caused the loss of a large number including many game fish. , The shore in many places is strewn with dead fish, which from all indi- cations was caused by this lack of Everett Randall, and under the supex- vision of O. S. Briggs, game warderf for the state at large. On Tuesd" of this week Malcolm Randall left with a crew of men for Herman, Minnesota, where they will sein three lakes near there for bull- heads. The places where they will sein are Cottonwood, Grant, and Long Lakes. They will use only one outfit. In thce lakes th(ae is hardly any other fish than bullheads, and but very few gmne fish. When the lakes have been cleared of bullheads, the state will plant game fish. This work, like that in Artichoke lake, is being done by the state, thru contract with the Randall Brothers. Malcolm Randall will have charge of the work at these lakes. It will be done under the supervision of Paul. Goodsell, game warden for that dis- triet. Begin Construction of New Road At Graceville With the grading of hesfate road between Barry and a point west af Graceville practically completed, the Schoen-Larkin Construction company will begin the construction of the new section of the road running into Grace- ville. The change in the course of the road as it nears Graceville will shorten the distance between "Graceville and Barry about two miles, it was an- nounced. Two bad railroad crossings will also be eliminated. Plans for this change were drawn up the first part of the year, and later approved by the State Highway Department. The new course will go east and northeast from the corner where the road now turns north, following the West and north shores of West Toqua and joining with the avenue along the north shore of Toqua lake.

Captain George Mallon, one of Per- shing's 100 heroes and candidate ]'or Lieutenant Governor of Minnesota at the-last election, who has just return- ed from Kansas, states. "You have heard the statements that the Ameri- can Legion tarred and feathered world war veterans in Kansas. Those state- ments were lies. The men"who cre- ated the dturbance were thugs hired by interests who wrapped themselves in a cloak of loyalty." When Judge Eli Torrance, National Commander of the Grand Army of I  @ the Republic, began his address at the Oedication of the Victory Memor- 9 ial Way in Minneapolis on June 11, he turned toward the ranks of overseas veterans and extended a greeting to the Amegican Legion, adding, 'oro you must be committed the priceless jewel of representative government regula- ted by law. You must remain stead- fast and unafraid regardless of every assault that hatred and malice may devise to undermine and destroy the heritage for which you so hobly fought and in defense of which so many of your heroic comrades poured out the warm blood of their youthful hearts." Harford MacNiaer, Commander  of the American Legion of [owa, said in part, "Loving hands will care for this Hying memoriaL*o the dead, the hands of Minnesotan's-for generations to rome. Children will visit this driveway and in these trees find typified the spirit of America; and as they grow, so will the mcumry of these men and women who died in the cause of liber- ty. To all true Americans these trees will e a symbol of the bravery and devotion with which these men laid down their lives that we might live. We of the American Legion have had an example set us by the Grand Ar- my of the Republic, and if we give up to that example and to the ideals of these men who ost their lives, no man need fear for tle future of Amer- ica." France's representative; M. de Fontnouville, said, "Do not think that France will eer forget. No Frnch- man will ever forge that the sons of Minnesota and of America died for him and for hi.children. I can as- sure you that the American soldiers will always be remembered on our Memorial Day, when we honor our own heroes. France prays for you as she does for her own children. We have beauty in our country but nothing umre beautiful than this driveway will be and no sons more brave, more fitted to receive its dedication in their ]honor." Congressman Royal C. Johnson of South Dakota, speaking at the Vic- tory Memorial Way dedicaion, paid tribute to the late Commander F. W, Galbraith, saying, "I wish that you knew of the great heart of Comman- der Galbraith and of some of the things he felt about the war and the sacrifices which tho who died made. He thot of the man who came home on the last transports, slowly moving transports, carrying men who cou?d not see the flag. They were men who could not come home when bands were playing and flags flying. They were met by few, but they were vnet by the spirit of the American Legion all over this country. It is that spirit which moves this city when it pre- pares and dedicates this driveway in their memory.  WEDDINGS 4  Nickiseh.Brown.

Right now there exists a real opportunity to save by buying, as prices are bound to advance when building activities make their demand felt.
