Jim 2 3, 1930 Nea feature service and now picture member of the associated pre dial 3511 vol. 76 no. 272 drive carefully i he life you save May be your own supreme court rules Albert Lea Bank night Legal St. Paul to a in a four to two decision the Minnesota supreme court today approved Quot Bank night Quot drawings in an Albert Lea motion picture theater which awarded Cash prizes to Lucky persons.

In 1937 the Minnesota supreme court in a four to three decision ruled that a so called Quot ten owing scheme at the lyceum theater in St. Paul was illegal.

A $50 Cash prize was Given away on a stated night each week. If the Lucky persons was not present the prizes accumulated until they reached a total of $400. A person would Register in the theater lobby without purchasing an admission ticket. If a participant wished to be present at the time of the drawing he was required to Purchase an our Mission ticket. Other rulings associate Justice Thomas f. Gallagher who wrote the majority decision pointed out that courts of a number of states have held there is no statutory violation of lottery Laws where no consideration is paid by anyone for the right to participate in a Chance to win a gift. Justice Gallagher emphasized that in the plan at the lyceum theater then owned by the Schubert theater players co., the supreme court ruled it illegal because participants paid a Quot consideration for the right to win a gift.

Quot tickets to the theater performance May be purchased but no coupons of participation Are attached thereto and the holders thereof remain ineligible to win a gift if they have not previously registered in the lobby. For advertising Quot a winning registrant May enter the theater without charge when his name is called from the loud speaker outside the court continued on Page 2 re -1 conservation i did you know thai the Buffalo fishes Are members of the sucker family More or less restricted to the slow moving warm water streams and Rivers of the Southern half of Minnesota and southward there Are records of one of the species of buffaloes occurring As far North As grand rapids. Buffaloes thrive Best in Muddy weedy warm Waters which Are also the preferred habitat of the Carp. Because these two fishes live together and since they Are similar in appearance the buffaloes often mistakenly Are accused of destroying the vegetation and spawning areas of game fishes which Are rooted up by the Carp. In some lakes and streams Buffalo fish Are very abundant. Such Waters usually Are unsuitable for fishes More desirable to the Angler. Since Buffalo Lish Are Good food fishes it is Wise conservation to Harvest them commercially where they Are abundant rather than to malign them with derogatory epithets.
