Sunday School boys play ball

The Methodist Sunday School boys and the Presbyterian Sunday School boys had occasion to settle their differences on Friday last, and it was staged on the shop grounds under the head of a baseball game. What the argument could have been about was never explained, but the manner in which the Methodists “tore into” the Presbyterians was anything but slow, winning by the score of 18 to 9 in five innings play. The game was played in good time, despite the large score, and was absolutely free of wrangling of any sort, players and spectators alike being apparently satisfied with the manner in which everything was run. It is hoped that more games of this nature can be played, as they certainly afford sport for all.

120 attend meet at Knife River

The meeting of the Lake County Development Association at Knife River last Friday night was a success from a standpoint of attendance, 120 having been served by the Ladies’ Aid society. The program, too, was varied and interesting.

Judge C.R. Magney, the principal speaker, told of the struggles to have the North Shore Scenic Drive established, and ventured the opinion that if enough pressure is continued to be brought to bear, the location of the highway at Pigeon River will be placed where it belongs, on the shore of Lake Superior.

He pointed to the accomplishment of the Gunflint Resort Keepers’ Association in having the signs made uniform and attractive, and advocated a like step on the highway between Duluth and Grand Marais, with more signs directing the beauty spots, many of which are missed by tourists.

Fred Thias and Boyd Helgeson led the community singing, Guy Hallock gave a group of novelty piano numbers, and Miss Audrey Puent tap danced with Miss Jeanette Larson at the piano.
