Circulation 19,500 urges Bike riders to stay off highways at night dear editor this plea has already been made j Many times but i m sure that it can stand repeating. To the Many bicycling fans of Racine i ask you for your own Protection to x lease stay off the highways at night. Done to mislead yourself by believing that a reflector on the rear of the bicycle is a Protection. Even though the reflector can be seen by the Driver of a car j the darkness and the vast differ Jence in the speeds of the bicycle and car make it hard for a Driver to judge distance and Speed occur j lately. No car on a Highway travels As slowly As a bicycle and when a car overtakes a bicycle it must either slow Down to the Speed of the bicycle which does t happen very Efteni. Go into the ditch or pay a the Bike. Thus if the bicycle Isno to struck there is the dancer of hitting an oncoming car or Goit g into the ditch.

An open class has been arranged and outside and non members Are invited by the while Racine experienced some of its warmest summer Days mrs. Sylvester Piper of route 3 Lathrop Road and her Mother. Mrs. Celia Wadmond of Newyl Tork City were cruising in the land of the Midnight Sun moving through lanes of ice packs in the Northern seas in Craft skilfully manipulated by expert norwegian sailors and eating quaint and appetizing fish dinners in the shadows of Snow covered mountains. They were within 500 Miles of the North pole and saw the spot from which Byrd set out on his expedition. They also visited the Amundsen hangar where the explorer launched the expedition the Fate of which was never known. Many american tourists. Norway Sweden and Denmark Are prolific with tourists this year � since Many visitors do not care to visit countries Over which War shadows hover. Thus Many Amer jeans Are getting their first real knowledge of the beauties of the Northland and Are enjoying really a different vacations. The party visited in jelling.

Hundreds in Racine apply for old age pensions anticipating the passage of an old age pension Law by the state legislature 1,250 men and women ranging from 6 5 to 97 years of age who believe they will be eligible have registered in county court for pension applications.

Wisconsin St budget is wrecked by buying school books dear editor now to that school has begun and the routine of the school year is having its first weekend i wonder How Many of us Are suffering a Shock due to the High Cost of school books. But that s Only part of it. 1/ook what it has done to the carefully planned budget. One could use a bookkeeper after robbing Peter to pay Paul. And so on. And Hack and Forth until after several weeks it May balance. When children Are Small and Only one at school the Cost of Hooks is an item hut when three or More Are in school and the older ones quite advanced the problem is a serious one. Education is compulsory so t seem a cheaper Way should he afforded. \ few of the parochial j Choelas have a rental service tha is working out satisfactorily and saving the children about 75 per cent of the original Cost. Saving the older children to books is no Economy because very often new Hooks replace the old and the discard d text is a total loss. Here s hoping in the very near future a rental system will become general throughout the City or any i other Way that will bring the Cost of Hooks Down to a Price that most of the people can afford. Thanking you for the bulletin. S. B.

This in itself May he o. K. Hut i notice the City says they will save j about $5,00 per month by this j method hut they do not say any thing about who is to pay the additional Gas consumption for those who have to Hake the bread. Does the City expect those on re j Lief to Hake their bread on the a1 i Lowance that they receive while not baking Quot As it is they do not say an thir g about who is to pay for the extra Gas consumption used to Hake this bread. The Gas allowance is Small enough As it is. As most families find it hard to keep within their allowance and if they do not after a couple of times the Gas company threatens to shut the Supply off completely. R done to think the City will save s i of that $5.00 per month when they deduct the Cost of baking per family and this Thev will have to � Oas those on Relief can to nay for the extra Gas used in bread making thanks for the bulletin.

While there they encountered a funeral procession with the Corpse on what resembled an open truck and the mourners and friends following in pairs picking petals off Flowers and scattering them along the Way. Racine Man honoured. They visited rebuild Park where the memorial log Cabin is built of logs sent from various parts of the United states. There they saw the unusual display of horseshoes made by Christ Christensen of Racine and sent As a gift to Denmark. They were four Days in the land of the Midnight Sun and fortunately mrs. Piper said there was no j fog. One Man had made la trips to see the Midnight Sun and had always experienced fog. He was on his 12th and Only successful i trip at the time. The trip from North Cape to Spitz Hergen was one of the most fascinating features of the entire trip mrs. Piper said. This is a Coaling Haling and fish j ing country hut there is no vege j tation and while men Are employed under contract to work at these i places and Are paid High wages they usually will not remain Over a year. At a Stop at a Little russian Colony a russian Baker presented a cake to the americans. This was in appearance exactly like a Hook with a Flap turned Hack and bore an inscription greeting. Mrs. Piper and her Mother visited All the preserved old Norsk Folk museums where costumed characters Are on hand to lend color. Mrs. Wadmond visited in her old Home and Birthplace in Veale. Passed and information regarding eligibility is disseminated about 600 More Racine county residents i will apply. When the Law is passed and becomes effective those who have registered will be notified to appear and fill out their applications if in the opinion of judge Simpson they Are eligible. After the legislature adopts an old age pension Law it will be necessary for the county Board to two travel u. S. Pays Bills supervisor tells How couple stayed Here 3 weeks without Cost. Touring the country at government expense is the latest innovation in the Federal a of Relief plan according to Glenn Birkett Tow n j passed and of Rochester supervisor and chairman of the county Relief committee. He tells of a Man and woman who had driven from new York in their automobile stopping Here and enjoying Relief hospitality for three weeks and enjoying a week s visit in Milwaukee before resuming their journey. On Way to Nebraska. Their ultimate destination Bir Kett said was Nebraska but they pass a Resolution containing provisions under which the pensions May be distributed in this county. 8 co lilies pay pensions. A it is certain a to to said judge Simpson a that the legislature will eventually pass such a Law. Because it will have to if this state is to receive its share of Federal 1 funds. The Senate and Assembly have both adopted Bills but provisions of each vary and it will be necessary for both to agree on a Law that will conform to Federal ?� eight counties of Wisconsin now pay old age pensions and about 2,400 were benefited in 1934, according to the statistical department of the state Board of control. Racine county is not included in those paying pensions the county Board having twice turned Down proposals to do so. The eight counties have been spending $459,145.64 a year for old age assistance with the state contributing $7 5,000 As its share according to Board figures. When a state Law for payment of pensions is passed according to estimates the number of beneficiaries in Wisconsin will jump from 2,400 to 25,000 by 1937. And it is expected that the legislature will appropriate $1,500,000 to $2.-700.000 to provide an adequate system of old age assistance for the next two years. Counties May pay 2 5 percent while the state May pay 2 5 or 50 per cent depending on the kind of Law that is the Federal government. 50 per cent. Made up of the families who had settled in the Center of a Wilder j Ness that is now in the township of j Somers. Kellogg to Corners. Positive identification of this Little group is established with the discovery of Early a of minutes of the Little congregation of migrants who decided to go beyond the settlement of Pike Cleek further Inland to a Little Patch in the Woods that had been levelled off by Forest fires a year before. While the first building to House a methodist episcopal congregation was completed in 1840, the formative period of the group came three years earlier. In the Spring of 1837, three Kellogg Brothers Chauncey Seth and Thaddeus and their families came with of teams and covered wagons from new England. In the East these families had been prominently identified with the Church and one of their promises was to establish a congregation As soon As they should Settle. In six Days these Brothers had Ere not in vain. Wonders Why so Many place Lifen peril Motorman cites dangerous practice of Drivers and pedestrians. A Owhy is it that so Many people who would never think of crossing a track in front of a Railroad train will drive their cars or walk in front of an interurban or Street car with apparently no thought of danger a an interurban Motorman constructed six rude log Cabins j chatting with a Friend at one of the terminals asked the other Day. A Othey do not seem to give thought to a possibility that a Motorman has Only two eyes and a Normal sense of alertness and that he cannot have his attention on everything at the same time. While a Motorman is required to be extremely careful cautious and Alert at All times he is not superhuman and sometimes Circum stances Are such that he cannot j prevent ?� cites incidents. The Motorman cited several incidents to show that Drivers of i cars and pedestrians alike Are i i Titer confident that the Motorman i would see them and Stop or slow up to avoid hitting them or their cars or were a Ojust Plain Foolhardy negligent or ?� while an interurban is travelling at a Normal rate of Speed on a City Street the Driver of a car will suddenly shoot out of a line of traffic in front of it a truck Driver will Cross an intersection directly ahead without looking in any direction.

Seth Kellogg oldest of the three Brothers called a prayer meeting for the seventh Day and to persons met in one of the Cabins. A sunday school was formed mrs. Seth Kellogg being first superintendent. The to persons enrolled. The result of this meeting bore fruit a month later when $200 was received As a gift by one of the Kellogg Sisters who raised the fund in a sunday school in new to York. With this Money to furnish such materials As were available by stage from Chicago and Milwaukee the building was begun. Chauncey Kellogg had been a Carpenter in the East and he gave All his spare time to the erection of the Church. Austin Kellogg another member of the original family had been a Blacksmith and he made the nails and braces for the building. None accepted pay. No one who worked on this building during the next two years accepted pay. The timbers Tere hand Hen out of solid Oak.

Of the counties have to share equally with the state in paying the pensions it is argued hardships will descend upon those counties that Are already heavily taxed on real estate. However the mothers to pensions Given these counties by the state will ease the Burden somewhat. Thousands apply. Tremendous pressure brought to hear upon the legislature by old people throughout the state shows the vital importance of this subject. Publicity attendant upon passage of a social Security Bill by Congress caused thousands to Send their applications to county courts. The prime question in the minds of those eligible for old age pensions is How much they will receive. A tentative sum of $30 a month with $15 to be contributed by the Federal government and the remainder to be paid by the state and counties depending upon the decision reached by the legislature has been mentioned. The Board of control has expressed a belief that $30 is too much and $25 is a More satisfactory amount. The $1,500,00 appropriation that it has been suggested the state make would not be sufficient to pay its full share of the $30 a month it is held. Growing awareness of the state and Federal governments to social responsibility Many believe leaves no doubt that each year to appropriations for old age pensions will he increased. Asia.

Julius Field who had married one of the Kellogg daughters. 1 he assisted in the building of the Church and officiated at tile consecration of the building.
