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.

CAMPAIGNS TO PREVENT ACCIDENTS Program Inaugurated in Local Chapters to Cut Down Farm and Home Accidents The American Red Cross has la.unohed et nation-wide campaign to eliminate hazards In the home and on the farm that now take an annual toll of nearly 35,000 lives, according to a recent state- ment by James L. Fleeter, vice chairman In charge of domestic operations. \Every Red Crone chapter is being asked to play a part in this campaign,\ Mr. Sieger said. \Hazards in the earl - Otte communities will be painted out. The children in our schools through- out the country will be given a list of the hcnne hazards and asked to enroll parents or relatives in the fight against them.\ Nearly five million men, women, and children were temporarily disabled in the homes of America last year by ac- cidents, officials of the National Safety Council have revealed. Most of the ac- cidents in which persons were killed and injured could have been prevented, according to this safety agency, this fact alone largely motivating the Red Cross drive for accident elimination. Active cooperation of social, civic, educational, veterans', and other groups has been secured. Red Cross maps ion forms or home check lists will be dis- tributed to homes where there are no children with the help of these or- ganizations. Due to Inaccessibility and lack of compensation coverage, little or no pioneering has been done in the field of farm safety, the Red Cross ete.tes. However, more people were accidental- ly killed in agricultural pursuits haat year than in any other occupation, mak- ing the need for safety education and farm home inspection apparent. Other agencies now active in the ac- cidentprevention field point to the fact that, because of its nearly 13,000 chap- ters and branches, the Red erase has a unique opportunity to successfully promote a project of this nature. Home accidents injure many more than do automobile accidents: they kill nearly as many, claiming an average of about 80 live daily. In terms of dol- lars and cents, for the practical minded, home accidents cost more than $1,000 per minute. Accidents of all types are Publie Enemy No. 4. Only three diseases cause as many deaths each year, heart disease, cancer, and cerebral hemorrhage. ''The home is not the place of safety it is commonly supposed to be' said Mr. Fieser in commenting on the new Red Grose service to the community. \The Red Cross, as a part of its char- tered obligation to prevent death and alleviate suffering, is conducting this humanitarian program to cut down the mounting toll of avoidable personal in- jury and death In the home* of the country.\ The annual Red Cross roll call, run- ning from Armistice Day to Thanks- giving Day, is one of the means of backing such a campaign. All citizens of the United States are offered the op- portunity to join and assist In the work of the organization. Red Cross Has Busy Year; Statistics Impressive; Services Varied Figures gathered at random from the year's report of the American Red Cross reveal the magnitude of the work being carried on by that organization. Red Cross workers assisted 54,305 veterans; 517 Red Cross Public Health nurses paid 921.455 visits to 186,326 patients: 98.441 first aid cer- tificates were issued while 46,693 persons were trained in life saving. Volunteer workers produced 3.102,- 943 surgical dressings, with 80.901 volunteers being on active duty throughout the year. U. S. Farms Worth 57 Billions In 1850 when the first count %A '11 made of the number of farms In the United States there were approximate. ly 1,500,000, with farm property valued at $4,000.000,000. 'rhe census of Agri- culture taken In 1930 shows more than 8,000.000 farms with a property vallie of more than $17,000.000,000.--Depnri- ment of Commerce.

Tommy—I know It. but we'ie had a year's wear out of him, ain't we/— Pathfinder Magi ;nos OLDER MEN QUICKER AT TRIGGER OF GUN Youth's reputation for fast thinking has been shattered by an electric tim- ing device used by a gun manufacturer. Tests were made with groups of marks- men of different ages. Each marksman was told to pull the trigger as soon as possible after he saw a light flash on the target. The action of pulling the trigger closed a switch attached to the gun and the device measured the time between the flash of light and the palling of the trigger. The tests revealed that the mature men showed the quickest reaction and boys the aloweet, says a writer in l'ear- son's Weekly. Youths of ten to utiteteen years re- quired nearly a quarter of a second to pull the trigger. The best time was made by the group ranging from forty- five to forty-nine years, who averaged less than one -fifth of a second. A man of eighty-five had an average reaction time of .218, hls slowest time being about the average for the group from ten to nineteen years. The greater experience of the older men did not account entirely for the better marks, as some had done coln• paratively little shooting. Your Face Makes Noise, Says London Scientist An expert will soon be able to tell a pretty girl from a plain one merely by listening to her face. For an em- inent sound specialist has discovered that everything makes a noise of its own, when placed in front of his tele- vision gadgets. The whiter the face the louder the noise, because a white face has a higher reflective power than a dark one, notes a writer in Pearson's Weekly. These sounds can actually be meas- ured In decibles. For instance, the Bengal tiger, snarling at a distance of 15 feet, registers 75 decibles, a pneu- matic drill 90 decibles, and an airplane anything from 80 to ill) deelbles. The human ear, however, can catch only a range of 7 octaves of noise, con- stituting from 30 to 30,000 vibrations a second. Spiders. on the other hand, are con- stantly making sounds, and listening to sounds, that are inaudible to us. Lurk- ing out of sight in its lair, It can tell Just what insect is approaching, and something of its strength and emotion —whether it Is fresh or tired, angry or good-tempered. Pliofilm Rivals Cellophane Cellophane has a rival. This is pho film. a rubber product. It Is produced synthetically from rubber by an en- tirely new process. Pliotilin has the advantage of being molsture-proof after considerable wrinkling or creas- ing. in this It is unique among wrap- ping materials. It is also said to have greater tear -resistance but, strangely enough, it does not have the elasticity one aseociates with ordinary rubber. It does have a toughness with some \give.\ Another very important ad- vantage of pliofilin Is its heat -sealing quality, A moderate amount of heat with pressure makes possible a strong permanent seal of the edges.—Selen- tifle American. First Aid Treatment Taught Thousands By Red Cross More than 187.000 certificates show- ing completion of first aid courses were issued last year by the Red Cross. This shows a gain of 56,000 certificates over the previous year. Approximately 64,200 boys in C.C.C. camps throughout the country passed first aid tests. Since the Red Cross first entered the field of first aid leaching, being one of the first or- ganizations in the world to do so, al- most one million persons have been trained in handling emergency treat- ment. The annual report of the Red Cross further reveals that more than 327,000 copies of the Red Cross Aid Handbook have been sold at home and abroad.' The Red Cross has wielded 64,306 veterans in clearing their emelt through the U. S. Veterans' Bureau this east year. Lest year 3,837,941 persona became members of the Red Cross. The annual roll call takes place each year between Armistiee Day and Thanksgiving Day Junior Red Cross members increased by 402,000 enrollments during the year which has just passed. Junior members carried on an exchange of oorreepon dence with junior members in 62 other countries having Red Cross Societies.

GARAGE BURNS Matt Blazicevich was awaken- ed at about 11 last Friday night to find his garage and blacksmith shop afire. Mr. and Mrs. Blazi- cevich carried water the rest of the night in order to keep the fire from spreading to the rest of the buildings. In the morning Mr. Blazicevich found evidence of kerosene having been poured on some chips and straw under his granaay and inferred from this that the shop and garage had been purposely set in a simi- lar manner. Footprints were also found leading to and away from the buildings. A pail was also found which smelled of ker- osene and was presumably used by the firebug. Other attempts to fire the Bla- zicevich property, eleven miles northeast of Winifred, have been made in the past. Mr. Blazice- vich came into Winifred Satur- day morning and notified the sheriff's office. Deputy sheriff Ross Brown came out and the authorities are now making a thorough investigation. Townsend Meeting A large group of local Town- send followers met at lthe M. E. church Saturday night for the purpose of organizing a local Townsend Club. The principle address of the evening was de- livered by Arthur Harvey of Hobson who explained the ad- vantages of the Townsend Old Age Pension Plan in detail. Mr. Harvey is a very pleasing and convincing speaker and his talk was greatly enjoyed. He was followed by Bert Replogle of Lewistown. After the meeting about seventy-five persons sign- ed pledges of membership. Section foreman E. 0. Melby will leave tomorrow for Great Falls where he will visit Edmon who recently went to work in the smelter there. Mr. Melby ex pects to return home Sunday evening. The local highschool staff, in- cluding Miss Peterson, Miss Orr, Mr. Tructner and Mr. Sheets, left yesterday for Great Falls to attend the state convention be- ing held there today. The party plans to return via Helena.

During this more than half a century, its doors have never been closed, day or night. It has been a refuge for thousands of little children from all parts of the country, who have been ten- derly cared for, trained and edu- ated placed in fine private Pfamilies, and who have become useful, honorable citizens. Such works as this are greatly needed in days like these, and their val- ue to mankind cannot be esti- mated. The Christian Home Orphan- age, during all these years, has been carried on and built up to its present great size, by the voluntary contributions of good people from all sections of the country. It has not been easy the past several years, although the ap- peals for help during these try- ing times have been more numerous and more urgent than ever before. Now, with times and conditions growing better, the Home is earnestly and necessarily appeal- ing to the people for funds to carry on its work during the winter months, and especially for gifts as liberal as possible for the annual Thanksgiving and Christmas offerings to the Home. The work is really in great need of help, and whatever you can do Will be appreciated. Please send all contributions to /te Christian Home Orphanage, Co ' uncil Bluffs, Iowa. The same will be duly acknowledged and credited in the official publication of the Institution, a copy of which will be mailed to you. Another Public Enemy By RAYMOND PITLAIRN National Chairman SentinelA of the Republic The \Public Enemy No. 1\ of out criminal records is growing short-lived. The stern hand of justice, backed by an aroused indignation, makes both brief and inglorious his flash across the front page. As with all transgressors, his way Is hard. But there is another Public Enemy. enjoying a softer, more pampered life. It is Public Debt—national, state and local. Fed and pampered by politicians. It has expanded in girth as the rest of the country pulled in its belt. In dieeussine it one must talk big money. Today, for example. the Public Debt of the United States government ex- ceeds 629,000.000,000. Count in the grcss debt of all divisions of government in the country, and the total mounts to many billions more. Among the enemies of the American people it probably ranks No. 1. Why? Because the public debt, along with Its twin—current expenses of govern- ment—constitutes a claim on the earn- ings and the property of every American taken. Roth must be paid. How7 By whom? The answer is simple. By taxes - whether hidden or open—clipped from the earnings of every man or woman who labors, of every family that con- tributes Its strength. its courage and Its spirit to the building and preserva- tion of a free, productive America. This public enemy is an insidious one. He /eaves his calling card --the tax bill —with comparatively few of his victims Prom the great majority of workers he Pilfers unsuspected—by increasing the cost of the bread they eat of the rent MU they pay, of the insurance premium they meet, of the tools and equipment they buy, and of virtually every other necessity In normal. aetive American life. For protection against the public enemy who robs us with a gun, we can turn to the police. For relief against the enemy who uses the tax levy, we must turn to the polls, and there elect public servante pledged to the same reasonable economy that the farmer, the business man or the housewife exercise. America needs the 0 -man type in public office, as well as in crime prevention. 3 -Way Weapon of 16th Century Back in the Sixteenth century in England a maker of hand weapons produced a comblnetinn weapon It consists of a pistol, dagger and knucklediteter or brass knuckles. With Apologies Friday night, and it's ten of the clock, and most of the people of Winifred and surrounding farms are just going to bed. And all at once the earth moves and shakes the houses built upon it. And this time it made twice in a decade that Winifred vibrated in unison with a distant quake. And this time, as before, local people discussed the phenomenon for a few days and then forgot it. But not so the people of Helena where walls tumbled and homes were demolished. And thruout the week as the property damage total mounted ever higher, people were forced to get along as best they could. And while the earth continues to tremble serious -eyed men and women of Helena must face, with an outward show of fortitude, the very real dangers of physical suffering and priva- tion. Meanwhile the world looks on and wonders --and most of us fail to realize what the people of Helena are experiencing. • • • The way most men treat a wife proves beyond the thinest shadow of a doubt that \love is blind.\ Catholic Study Club The Catholic Study Club meets every Monday night at 7:30 at the Catholic church. We are now studying The Acts of the Apos- tles. Visitors are welcome. FOUR WALLS A week ago Sunday, October 13, little Estella Parry celebrated her 13th birthday. I'm very much afraid that if it hadn't been for the nurses at the County hospital, it would have been a rather dreary birthday for the little girl, for Estella has been confined to her bed for almost three months with an infected knee. We who are well cannot even begin to realize how monot- onous it is to lie and look at the same ceiling and walls day in and day out --and then when a girl is only twelve and her birthday comes along --but perhaps nurses know just about how little girls look forward to birthdays, any- way the nurses at the County hospital got busy and gave Est- ella a birthday party all of her own. I don't know but I should not be a bit surprised that Est ella was so happy she couldn't say a word -- and how much brighter the whole day seemed to her, even after the party was all over. Estella's mother recent- ly visited her and she tells us that Estella may soon be able to , come home. But even though she is coming home soon I think it would be mighty fine if some of Estella's schoolmates took time to write and tell her all about everything at home -- just so she'll know you haven't en- tirely forgotten her. You have no way of knowing how letters from friends can shorten up the long, weary hours for those who are forced to stay in bed. Your letters may even help Estella get well --so, come on girls and boys, sit down and make Estella happy by writing her a letter. • Have Fine Trip Mr. and Mrs. C. L. Peck and Martha Ann recently returned from a ten-day trip thru the western part of the state, Idaho, Washington and British Colum- bia. They stopped at Drummond for visit with Dorothy who is teaching there. At Missoula they were joined by Miss Ruth who accompanied during the western part of the trip. Among the many interesting places vis- ited were Seattle, Port Town- send and Viutoria, British Col- umbia. SEDAN BURNS AFTER COLLISION Charlie Wareham and Henning Olson were parties to a rather unfortunate accident last Friday when their cars collided about three miles northwest of Wini- fred. Young Wareham was on his way home from the Canmont oil well, where he is employed, at about 6:30 p. m. Charlie Stev- ens, who was riding with Wate- ham in his Ford sedan, said they had started up a little grade just as Henning Olson started down. Both drivers were blinded by lights and, in the ensuing colli- sion, the Waraham car caught fire. The three boys succeeded in pushing Olson's flupmobile out of danger. The blaze of the burning ear could be seen for miles around. We understand that Charlie's car was insured. Let's All Go Hold everything! Get all set to see the Junior class play, \Out of the Fog\ next Friday, Nov. 1st. There are many laughs packed into the three acts of this little play so prepare to enjoy yourselves. There will be a mat- inee at 2:30 and an evening show at 8. Reasonable prices will prevail. Emmons Well Nears SandS An early test of the basal sand of the Colorado formation of the Winifred district is in prospect in the t:mmons test on Crosser dome.
