What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.
1411510RICAL SOCtEA, OF MONTANA. HELENA THE WINIFRED TIMES VOL. 23 - WINIFRED, MONTANA:FRIDAY, AUGUST 30, 1935. NO. 24 Join The Army! The soldier had delivered a very pleasing address, painting . i the pleasures and advantages of army life in rosy colors. Then in closing the program, a martial band burst forth with that pulse - stirring march, The Stars and Stripes Forever. Where is the red- blooded American boy who could listen and not long for the adven- turous life of a soldier? Nothing was said of hardships, or the dangers in case of actual war, or of being called upon to kill and to maim other human beings whose only quarrel with the soldier is that his leaders have disagreed with the other soldiers' leaders over something about which they lie to their armies, asking them to save the worid for something or other. Thus do nations beguile youth and prepare for war. — Put up the sword, Peter, for they that take the sword shall perish by the sword.\ Social Security From The Winnett Times President Roosevelt has signed the Social Security bill, which provides for old -age pensions and unemployment insurance. Ac- companying the bill is the largest individual tax measure passed by the nation for humanitarian purposes. In the years past we spent freely for war purposes, harbors, canals, etc., but never for social security of the people themselves. Under \rugged individualism\ people died in poor houses and starved on the streets and children cried for milk. As the years roll by the social security plan will prevent starving in a land of plenty and permit the employed to prepare a nest egg for times of adversity and old age. We are moving forward to a greater life in a marvelous nation under the leadership of a Great Human Heart. COMMONPLACE Hurt nobody and help as many 118 you can. Renan • • • And that's about as simple a creed as anyone could wish to find. The surprising thing about it is that it completely covers all circumstances and emergencies. • • • A ten -year -old boy crawls ont of a wrecked car and looks help- lessly at his father under it. Then he starts to walk the long, lonely mile back to town. What thoughts of prayerlike hope and terrible despair possessed his boy -mind as he hurried along the deserted road in the rays of the setting sun --the sun that had al- ready gone down for his dad. How many times did he tell him- self that his dad wasn't hurt bad, only to sink into an agony despair? Only he will ever know the terrible anxiety of the lone- ly mile that will live in his mem- ory always. Little dark -eyed Lee Elliot will never forget Win- ifred. Additional Locals Dutch Fred and Omar Bour- geois were town callers Wednes- day from the Baker Springs sec- tion. C. F. Rusas1 of the Power Plont district brougnt his trac- tor in to be overhauled during the forepart of the week. Don't miss the big dance at Hilger tomorrow night.

When they hang all Swedes for trying To copy Irish wit. When Europeans have agreed To pay their wartime debt, When El Duce and Hitler have agreed To forgive but not forget. When St. Paul is to Minne What Boston is to beans, When ten -year -olds get colic From eating bootleg greens When Little Rock replaces Hollywood As the Mecca of the screen, When our senators have scolded All the bears who won't come clean. When politicians make their word As good as gilt-edged bonds, When gentlemen prefer brunettes Instead of sun-tanned blondes. When all these things have happened With many and more details, Why then we may begin to talk About the age of miracles.

Dan Chisholm made a trip to Lewistown Monday to call on his wife who has been under the doctors care for the past ten days. C. L. Peck has a new ad in the Times today. Mr. Peck, as all the world knows—at least this end of Fergus County —deals in Chevrolet cars, Goodyear tires, gas and oil and—just stop and look the layout over. Don't Patronize Insurance Chiselers Recently the newspapers of the state received a communica- tion from State Auditor, John J. Holmes, warning them against insurance companies soliciting business in Montana without complying with the insurance laws of the state. The letter in part follows: It would appear that many in- surance companies are springing into existence and attempting to write insurance in the State of Montana, without first comply- ing with the insurance laws of the state. These companies do not procure a state insurance li- cense before proceeding to dis- pose of their contracts to Monta- na citizens. The companies whol- ly fail to appoint the State Audi- tor and Ex -officio Commissioner of Insurance their attorney to accept service of process, which means, of course, that in the event a Montana citizen pur- chases a contract of insurance from such a company and has occasion to litigate a claim aris- ing under the 'contract, the citi- zen must seek the aid of the courts of the state in which the company is domiciled, as service of process cannot be secured on the company in this state. Where service of process cannot be made upon the company in this state, it is obvious that the courts of the State of Montana cannot obtain jurisdiction over the company. The companies seeking to do business in the State of Montana without first complying with the state insurance laws, also fai4 to pay the State of Montana the taxes and fees imposed by law upon companies operating under a state permit. It is highly poss- ible that many of the companies fail to pay fees and taxes in any state, but if they do pay fees and taxes in their domicile state, some other state of the Union is securing a benefit from insurance business written in the State of Montana. The question must naturally arise in anyone's mind - should citizens of the State of Montana help defray the cost of state government in a state of which they are not citizens? It is logical that if taxes are collec- ted on business written in the State of Montana, the public treasury of the State of Montana should receive the benefit of the taxes paid on the business writ- ten on the lives of Montana citi- zens and the property owned by Montana citizens and located in State of Montana. Miss Margaret Smith, daugh- ter of Mr. and Mrs. Art Smith, recently made her parents a vis- it. Miss Smith is a student nurse at the Barritt Hospital at Dillon, Montana.

Wallace, who for several years was a buyer and exporter of both cattle and sheep, and who now travels over the entire United States checking market conditions and requirements will give a cattle and sheep grading demonstration Friday, September 6, 1935 at the N -Bar Ranch, near Piper, 32 miles southeast of Lew- istown, according to H. R. Stuc- ky, County Agent. The meeting starts at 11:00 A.M. Mr. Wallace, on account of hia wide acquaintance with the cat- tle and sheep markets, can give some very interesting facts re- jfarding all markets for sheep 4nd cattle.

ATTENTION STUDENTS High school will open Tuesday, September 3, but due to the fact that teachers' institute will be held on that day, the grade school will open Wednesday, Septem- ber 4. Tuesday night at a meeting of the officers of the high schools of the county. it was decided to raise the amount paid for trans- portation for high school students to $4.00 for the first child in a family, $3.00 for the second, and $2.00 for the third. This pay- ment is for all students living file miles or further from school. There will also be a small pay- ment for students living between three and five miles from school. These changes were made be- cause of a payment made from state funds for transportation. All students should enter school the first day or as soon after school opens as possible so that sufficient supplies can be ordered and to aid them in getting a good start in their work. There are a few good places for pupils to stay at reasonable prices, and there are also a few houses for rent. Mrs. Blackwelder Very III Word was received Tuesday evening that Mrs. R, A.

Elliot of Zurich, Monta- na, was killed when his car, a model A Ford pibkup, left the grade and turned over on the D -Y highway one mile east of Wini- fred at 6 p. m. Tuesday. His young son, Lee, was with him but escaped without serious in- jury. The boy immediately star- ted for Winifred for help and was picked up a short way from town by Earl Pearson. A party was soon on the way out to the wreck and found the man still in the seat, his head doubled beneath the car door. The car was soon righted but there was no sign of life. The body was left as found and county coroner Dr. Curtis Wilder was notified. Dr. Wilder and deputy sheriff Ross Brown arrived at the scene about 8 p. m. for the purpose of making an examination. Mr. Elliot's neck was evidently brok- en when the car rolled over. Dr. Wilder notified Mrs. Elliot by telephone and she requested that the body be taken to Lewis- town. Mr. and Mrs. C. L. Lohmaier took charge of the Elliot boy, giving first aid and taking him into their home until his mother came for him Wednesday even- ing. The boy did not learn that his father was dead until about 11) o'clock Wednesday morning. Mr. Elliot was a man of mid- dle age and had a family of four children. He was a bee keeper. Lee said that his father and he had traveled throughout the state selling honey and they were just on their way home after dispos- ing of a truckload of honey. Mrs. Elliot came through Win- ifred Wednesday evening and was on her way to Fromberg, Montana, the home of her rela- tives. The grade on which the acci- dent occured has been recently raised and the shoulder is soft. The wheels presumably ran onto the loose dirt and Mr. Elliot was unable to swing the car back in- to the track. The car was not badly damaged and was brought to the D -Y Garage to await the disposition of 'Mrs. Elliot. Here From Minneapolis Mr. and Mrs. Dale Perkins and family of Minneapolis, Minn., with Mrs. Parker Cragen of Lewistown, looked Winifred over last Thursday. Mrs. Perkins, nee Genevieve Cragen, found many changes in 17 years.
