Estherville Enterprise (Newspaper) - April 13, 1927, Estherville, Iowa The Estherville Enterpei Historical Pel* "THE PAPER WITH THE CIRCU VOLUME XXVI ESTHERVILLE. EMMET COUNTY. IOWA. WEDNESDAY, 13, 1927 NUMBER 15 SET FOR BUTTERMAKERS CONVENTION THE DE MOLAYS WIN SECOND PLACE IN THE UNITED STATES ALSO AWARDED THE FOUNDERS TROPHYOF IOWA BY THE COUNCIL Estherville lias a DeMolay- order that they may well be proud of. For several years past they 'have been winning honors over the state and have had a national reputation among the members and other chapters. They have had individual members who have won national honors and one year had the only chapter in the United States that won two individual honors, � Fred Jones has had charge of the DcMoJays and a lot of the credit is due to his tireless work with the boys. This year we won second place in the United States, Los Angeles win-- ning the first you' as soon as completed. Fraternally yours, (Roy E. Dickerson) Director Program & Activities. Not only have we won national fame in the work of our DeMolay boys but we have according to this letter won the first state honors which should be considered a great accomplishment in itself. -O- Estherville had three house robberies last Wcdiicsduy evening. The work looked like it was a kid's job. At the Dempsey home they took nothing but a couple of drinks of grape Juice. They ransacked the drawers and seemed to be looking for cash. They left a diamond pin on the top of the dresser. They opened an envelope and took out a piece of tissue paper. Had they torn this open they would have found a ten dollar Bold piece. At the Geo. Robinson home they pulled a window off the basement but did not go inside. They have a dog which is kept in the home. They also made an attempt to get into the Trees home according to reports. They left a [lash light at the Dempscy home as Mrs. Dempsey come homo while they were inside and they left through the window. --------O---. Tin- advertised sale for the Walker Motor Company stock, fixtures and machinery called for last Saturday rook place at the garage. .Some man liy the name of Cunningham from Spencer purchased the entl rcy stock and fixtures for seventy-seven hundred dollars. That afternoon he opened the doors and sold ull he could out of the. stock. There certainly were some bargains to he had there. Many took advantage of the offers and purchased. The fixtures, desk, etc., were among the heavy sales that did not seom to bring real money. There were a fow cars in the basement and there was some fiuo machinery which sold fairly well. ABOUT OUR MISSIONARIES IN THE CHINESE DISTRICTS The following communication received by H. L. Olmstead concerning the missionaries of the Church of Christ in China: The following cablegram from Shanghai, China, March 31. "Burches at Chuchow and missionaries at Luchowfu not heard from. Communication cut off March 21st. Think they are safe. All other missionaries here in Shanghia. Are making arrangements for Mackllns, Hol-royds. Misses Alman, Abbott, Park, Tremaine, and Lawrence to proceed to America; Bates and Hnskells to Japan; Plopper, Sorrells, Slaters, Lyon, Gish, Kelleyand Harper to Philippines. Too early to estimate losses of mission and personal property." Signed Marx. A later communication tellB us that the Burches are on an American destroyer bound for Shanghai. A cable received from President Bowen of Nanking University, who is in Shanghai, reads as follows: "There are no foreigners in Nanking. Nine houses have been totally destroyed by fire. All others have, been robbed of everything, including the hospital, middle school, and language school. All foreigners have been robbed of everything, including personal property." This would indicate that nine missionary homes belonging to the University have been destroyed, beside, the looting. The United Society has a one-third Interest in the University and the homes. What other loss of property there may be, has not been rovealed. What our missionaries suffered was the lot of all other Nanking missionaries. ' The only loss of life was that of Or..3. % Williams. vl�6-vr�sld&nt of Nanking University, who was shot by a .Chinese looter after his house was robbed. Dr. Williams was' ,i Presbterian He had served many years In China and was greatly beloved. He was well known among Disciples in America und has frequently spoke at our conventions. He was tenderly laid to rest by his Chinese brethren Just before the mission-1 arles left Nanking. These are days of testing for the. Chinese churches. Here is where the most severe persecution is coming. The missionaries can move out, not so the Chinese Christians. Christianity has been introduced by foreigners and ninety per cent of the people are ignorant of its teaching and claims. It will be easy for agitators to arouse feeling against the Chinese churches. It is reported that already many of our own Chinese brethren are hcrically carrying their Bibles under their arm, as a badge of their devotion and sincerity. MANY STUDENTS SIGNING UP FOR JUNIOR COLLEGE NOW County Supt. Mario Sorum has decided to held the spelling contest at Armstrong on Thursday to begin at eleven o'clock in the morning. There should he 42 contestants If they all get there. The chamber of commerce luncheon held last Monday noon at the Gardston hotel was well attended. There were some new features added to this meeting. � Miss Laura Angell who is flie organist at the Grand theatre, was present and played for (lie community singing. Everyone sang like troupers and Scc'y Smith who led the singing kept them at it. Dr. Galloway was absent and W. S. Johnston had charge of the meeting. After n splendid lunch county superintendent, Marie Sorum, gave a talk on the coming school exhibit and institute. She has a wonderful programme outlined for this institute and has invited some men of note. Some have accepted and some tan-not be present. Sen. Brookhart telegraphed he could not be hero for this meeting. Gov. Hammill hns indicated he would he here. Con. Dickinson will probably lie here as he has been invited and he is now on his way home from Washington D. C. Ho is making the trip by atilo and will be home the latter part of the month or I he first of next month. Ex-Judge Lee was present at this meeting and was asked by Atty. Johnston to introduce Fred Parsons who was In attendance for the first time. Mr. Parsons said he had no remarks to make. With another song the meeting adjourned. There will be a one fare for the round trip to Des Moines on Thursday. The Ford Motor Company have an open house week In Des Moines and any one Who desires to visit the. plant i'n Dos Moines and see a Ford in the making can take advantage of this trip. The Ad. of the Home Auto Co., in this issue of the Enterprise tells of this big Ford week In Des Moines. You can leave here on Thursday and tho. tickets are good to return on Saturday. Its time right now that fathers and mothers and the boys and girls who graduate, this season begin to think of what they aro going to do this fall in regard to nttcndlng college. For those at home we believe, the Junior College has been established a sufficient length of time to convince any one It is a worth' while project. It gives many an advanced education they could not obtain otherwise. It keeps the young people at home at an age they are better off at home. For those away it places the children in a smaller city. The advantages may not be as good as in some larger calleges. However there are many advantages in a smaller place for the young students. Another thing to be considered is the fact that Estherville has been exceptionally fortunate in securing some of the best instructors in the state in their lines. These instructors arc giving the students of the Junior college more individual work than they can obtain in the larger colleges. This is an accredited college and the credits from our Junior College aro recognized in the other state colleges. As far us those who desire their boys or girls to get a sufficient amount of physical training they will not have to look elsewhere. We have developed an excellent football team, a fine basket ball team and the boys are out now for track. The girls are also looked after in the way of athletics. Before you ' decide Just where to sojhI your children this fall investigate >all the fine points to be considered at the Junior College in Hsther- OUR FIRE DEPT. WILL SPONSOR "FIRE BRIGADE" PICTURE HERE FIVK-STOUY JUMP INTO NKf PRESIDENT COOMDGE MAY COME TO IOWA THIS SUJMMEB New developments in the matter of persuading President . Coolldge to spend' his summer vacation in Iowa are of considerable importance. On April 8th we received a letter from Mr. Everett Sanders, Secretary to the President, in which ho appointed 11:30 on April 16th as the time When the Iowa committee should meet with the president and present the invitation. This Invitation is a portfolio of pictures and information about the Floete Mansion and the Iowa Great Lakes. It is bound is limp leather with the words in gold stamping on the cover, "An Invitation to Iowa." The committee consisting of Ex-Senator Charles Rawson, of Des Moines, C. H. McNider of Mason City, Dr. George Bemis of Garner, H. E. Nnrey of Spirit Lake, and E. L C. White of Spencer has bean selected to take it to Washington. Mr. McNider has promised that Hanford McNider will join the committee in Washington and go with them to the President which will be of considerable help. Vou may have noticed in the Chicago Tribune of April 9th to the effect that President Coolidge hns received the invitation of the Iowa Legislature to come to Iowa and seemed to he very much pleased. The letter from M.r Sanders was very cordial and leads us to believe that Iowa has a pretty fair chance. Should you desire any more information about the project or the Floete Mansion or any pictures, please wire mo and we will send them to you. We believe that this project has received more co-operative effort through Iowa and more publicity through the press than anything which has been done in tli WITHOUT A MISHAP Five Hundred People In Action Before a Buttery of Fifty Cameras at the Climax. We were called into the Grand Theatre this morning to see the reels of the "Fire Brigade" run through for the inspection of the firemen and a few who desired to see it before It was produced here. The fire company of this city have decided to produce this picture this season at the Grand. They give some entertainment each year. Many years it has been a dance but this year they will g'vo this picture. When we, entered the theatre we did not intend to stay through the picture. The fact is it was so interesting wo could not leave. Its one of the finest productions we have over witnessed and we advise all to see this picture. Jts simply wonderful. A spectacular orphanage fire, which excels in magnitude and thrills any fire scene ever photographer, is one of the thrilling sequences included in "The Fire Brigade," the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer TwcliU 4a Jtoo* ft? rWA-Orsjad-theatre, yet It is said to have been filled with remarkably little confusion. Dozens of motion picture stars and directors were present the night of the fire at the studio, and all declared it the most perfectly handled big scene ever made. Director William Nigh worked with Fire Chief Ralph Scott of Los Angeles and Chief Jay W. Stevens, under whose supervision the blaze was staged, in planning and filming the fire. More than fifty motion picture cameras were trained' on the scene to catch every possible movement of the flames. Being a "four alarmer," the fire was staged in four parts, each one more spectacular than the former. In the last blaze, every window in the large five-story building is flaming, thirty^two pieces of fire apparatus are working in the scene, and more than five hundred people are before the cameras. The spectacle on the screen is one of the amazing beauty with twenty powerful streams of water playing on the blaze. Flvc-Story Leap Perhaps the most thrilling event in the pictures comes when Charles Ray leaps from the top of the burning building into a nine-foot net hold by fifteen firemen on the ground. Many other spectacular jumps and rope rescues arc negotiated from other windows in the structure. " "The Fire Brigade" received the expert cooperation of the International Order of Fire Engineers in its filming, and in return the studio Is giving a large percentage of the net proceeds to this Order for the carrying on of its fire prevention work Anothe portion is to be given to various fire and sick benefits maintained by fire departments throughout the country. The cast of (he big fire prevention spectacle includes May McAvoy, Charles ltay. Holmes Herbert, Tom O'Brien, Eugenie llcsserer, Warner P. Itichmond, Bert Woodruff, Vivia Og-deii, DeWitt Jennings, Dan Mason .lames Bradbury, Jr., Erwiu Connelly | and others. ----O- The Supreme Court handed down an opinion in a case last week in which Frances Kennedy was inter esle.d as an attorney. The case seem to he a pleasing one. to him as of course all supreme court cases won are. The case arose out of a contract Saylers had with the school district at Ayrshire. Bergcr & Company furnished the lumber and Sal .vers did not pay for it. They sued on their contract and won the. ease in the lower court. Salyers appealed and lost. Mr. and Mrs. Win. Post will leave Thursday evening for Iowa City to spend Easter with their children Clare and Corine. k They will also visit Mr. Post's mother at Spring vllle. MORNINGSIDE CHAPEL CHOIR RENDERED FINE CONCERT The Big Sioux City bus and four curs pulled in here last Monday with about fifty of the Morning-side Gleo Club. They came from Sioux City here and they had a hard time of traveling. The roads are bad and the bus was a heavy one and loaded to capacity. The glee club is comprised of singers of both sex and is considered one of the best in this section of the country. They gave their musical entertainment to a fair house last Monday evening at the Methodist church. There certainly was not the attendance there should have been. No one from the country could get in. That roads have been in such condition that the people will not attempt to come to town. The concert pleased all Who heard It. This is a high class musical aggregation and we can recommend them to any city knowing they will please. Ralph Mahlum, son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Mahlum, was the only one from this city belonging to the Gleo Club. TWO AUTOMOBILES COLLIDED LAST SATURDAY EVENING There was a bad accident last Saturday night some place about the hour of twelve at the corner of Hayes and Ninth streets.

Mrs. Osher was in the. front seat with Mr. Oshor and the two girls were in the rear scat. Mrs. Osher sustained a cut above the eye. The Osher car which was a heavier car was not damaged much. The people in the Christensen car say they saw the Osher car coming towards them. Mr. Osher we understand said he did not see the Christensen car until about the time he struck it. Mr. Christensen was in the hospital a day or so but is able to be about again but with his arm in a sling.
