The Kadoka Press (Newspaper) - May 2, 1924, Kadoka, South DakotaPress, Vol. 10, No. 61 KADOKA. S. D.. FRIDAY, MAY 2, 1924 THE KA OK PRESS Reporter Vol. 16, No. 48 ASSESSORS GATHERED FOR INSTRUCTIONS I Van Camn and Carlson came from l’ierre to give assessors informat- ion regarding their duties Assessors from ml parts of the county gatherea last muumay nt the courthouse with the county auditor and the county commis- sioners to receive both supplies j and instructions to properly carry j out their duties as tax assessors! in their respective townships where they had been chosen. The matter of taxation is a ser- ious and vexacious one. The state j therefore takes the trouble to do all in its power to see that they j are distributed fairly and justly. | To achieve this, the state knows, that the man who makes the as- 1 sessment is the most important j cog in the tax machinery. If he! makes an unjust assessment, over- values one, undervalues the other and forgets or omits other taxable m-opertv the burden is unfairly distributed. Therefore the states ablest men are sent out to give the assessor such information that be tna- do his work wisely and well. He receives instruction that makes him understand the tax laws and its provisions more clear- Iv. This year Jackson County was fortunate to have Messrs. W. N. Van Camp, Commissioner of In- surance and Charles J. Carlson of the State Tax Commission as in- structors. Mr. Carlson ably discussed road taxation and plainly showed that the hope of .materially reducing taxation lay in the state road build mg program. j “A million more tax pavers aroi needed in South Dakota” said the j speaker emphatically, “and to get ' them here we must build roads for people used to travel by rail. but now travel by automobile.” The speaker then showed how | North Dakota happened to have a: larger population, just because she j had provided for her benefit save! a’ transcontinental railroads which j brought the people, South Dakota ] has not this advantage, hut now i lr s a chance to bring in the wanted , and needed settlers by means of, good roads. The six million road money spent by the state might appear high, but in comparison with one lowa i count” which bonded eight million j it appeared very reasonable. Mr i Carlson’s talk was flavored withj ?>ood common sense and went right i for the mark. Insurance Commissioner Van- Canin gave some mighty fine and helpful advise to the assessors, in their unenviable task. ! He agreed that taxes were high | and irksome and then compared tax levies of the Sunshine State j with those of other states. lie j rightly claimed that we were hard j up. hut not as had off as manv of our neighbors and other states. Banks galore were forced to the wall in other states and the life; time savings of many ople were; lost because they ha - > o bank guarantee of deposits lews. In, Kentucky the sheriff collects the taxes at 5 per cent. In manv other states there is no state hail in- j surance and people pay o’d line rates or go without. So n others that do have state insurance have laws so cumbersome that rates are far above those of South Dakota. Nebraska for example navs $1.45 where the folks just across the line in South Dakota mav hut 40 cents as is the case in 1 Jackson county. Thus the farmers of this state have been saved thousands of dollars because of wise laws justly and economically enforced. “Bring the facts to the people when vou call on them” said Mr. Van Camn forcefully. He said proudly that the state hail insurance department was not “busted” but had a safe sinking fund to provide for possible emer- gencies which could hardly t>o foreseen. He then showed in de- tail how the hail insurance was administered. It was a most inter- esting and highly instructive piece of work which the commissioner presented and space forbids full details. He showed by charts and figures how in this state only thirty men had worked hut part time on this difficult problem of adiustinv hail losses. These thirty men reported their even’ expense, their mileage covered and the loss- es taken care of dav. Old line companies figured on a sl4-15 charge for one adjustment. The state cut this to $3.42 per claim. Each man averaged six claims straightened out per dav, which he ' justly claimed as another achievement. In conclusion he most earnestly urged the assessors to make their hail insurance assessments posit- ive and carefullv. to get the exact description of the land so that a possible claim might stand more show of being cared for with equity. As a ln°t and parting word he asked that all hail insurance he sent in bv June first, at the latest and sooner if possible. The frentlemen from Pierre lef f for Philip where they were to meet COUNTY SCHOOL NOTES (By County Superintendent) Last Saturday April 2Cth, closed the series of district institute meetlings and speaking contests for the(year. Contestants for the County(Contest to we held at Interior this week have been selected. In the¦ matter of choosing through thej district contests we have developed a healthy interest in the subject of spelling in practically every school ot the county and un- questionably we shall have a group of children with a highly developed spelling ability at Interior on Sat. May 3rd. We hope that every arent and friend of the contest- ants will endeavor to he present at the contest as well as all others who are interested in listening to an interesting match between a group of well trained children. There will he live awards made in each division so at this time the children will feel that they are receiving some recognition for ability as well ak enjoying the| satisfaction of winning, fairly. The Cottonwood meeting was a very interestino- one in spite of a touch of winter weather and a real snow storm. One of the pleasant features was a delightful luncheon served to teachers and pupils at the school house immediately after, the close of the teachers' meeting at 12:30, by the Cottonwood j Womans Club. The ladies provided] an abundance oi sandwiches, pick-i les; coffee and coco for about fifty j teachers, children and interested visitors. The children .showed due appreciation by spelling with adeal of success, afterwards.fhe following are the children j who will represent the variousdistricts at Interior next Saturday:!

Buckmastcr led out two road grading outfits Tuesday morning and started them off where the work was left off last fall severa miles this side of Belvidere on the Custer Battlefield Highway. The ground seems to lie in good condit- ion to work and the superintend- ent refused to let a single work- able day pass by for he has a long season ahead of him and more work than lie can hope to cover. The outfits will plow right through to the east county line with the exception of a mile nr two of federal work in and about Belvi- dere. The program thereafter take:, them on the Kadokn-Philip project to get it too in shape for the com- ing gravel. KADOKA WOMANS CLUB HELD INTERESTING MEETING About fifteen ladies braved the fierce wind of last Thursday night to he present at the regular month- ly nicotine of the Kadoka Womans Club, which met at the home of Mrs. M. K. Easthouse, The program was in harmony with the Easter spirit. Mrs. Se liner So lain delivered an excellent p tper on “The Boyhood of Christ.” Mrs, Easthouse gave an Easter Scripture reading. Sacred music was furnished by the Easthouse Edison. Delegates were then chosen to the annual moetin of the second district convention of the State Federated Womans Club which meets the last week in May at Philip. Mrs. A. S. White; Mrs Flagg P. Carlisle and Mrs. Minnie G. Zimmer were so honored. Master Jacob Fry her go j- had the misfortune to loose his fine riding horse a few days ago. I PLAN TO SEE THE BLACK HILLS THIS SUMMER j The Press has just received a (beautiful folder illustrated in •colors which tells of the wonderful attraction which the playgroundsj of the Sunshine State offer in the Black Hills. Press readers may receive a copy of the same by writ- irv to {lie State Department of Immigration at Pierre. They may also have copies sent to their friends, whom they think might be induced to see this wonderful American Switzerland by just giving their names and addresses} to this same department. The highways and byways of the Hills have undergone wonderful improvement even since last sum- mer. A largo number of caves have been made accesible near the state park and the state game lodge and scenic wonders have been made accessible that could hitherto be only penetrated with great dif- ficulty. Surely, if you plan an out-¦ ing for the summer, nlan to see your Hills you will he well repaid. ! The most representative gathcr- I ing of wild native life in the north I : west since the white man pone-|11rated this region, is to he found) at the South Dakota state park, near Custer, according to John A. Stanley, of Lend; amemher of the state park hoard. Here are to lie found in safe i captivity bears; buffalo; doer; elk(mountain sheep; wolves; bobcats;; : porcupines; racoons, and other erst-1(while denizens of the mountains! and plain. A recent addition to the zoo is an American bald eagle. “A fine thine- about the zoo in the park” said Mr. Stanley, "is¦ that every visitor who cares to do*¦so may see the entire collection.(Near the game lodge one can see most of the animals, including thej mountain sheep, elk and buffalo. About a mile north of the lodge along the highway a beautiful t ract including a running stream; lined with a variety of trees with ; a picturesque ledge of rock bor-dering one side; has been selected for the zoo. Several bird and ani- mal cnees have been built; and a[small enclosure made for the door(although a tourist may see one at)(almost anv moment along the 1 highway. "One of tin* favorite amusements of guests at the -ame lodge last summer: was following with a field glass the maneuvers of the moun- tain sheen on the precipice oppo- site the lodge. The. sheep have made for themselves numerous trails: eriss crossin"- the entire mountainside and with their young can usual Iv be seen following these unmindful of the sheer drop at i heir side." FORD SALES KEEP RAMBLING RIGHT ALONG Jack Thomas is keeping right on rolling out and chasing road lice out of las garage. A carload was unloaded Monday and Jack, Buff Solon and Charlie Roye can hardly set them up fast enough to keep pace with demanding customers To stave oft an almost certain stampede has ordered another garload and now challenges even the most impatient Ford enthus- iast to “come on.” Amort"- this weeks deliveries are a new touring ear to John Graven: a new touring car to E. H. (sheriff Hank) Holmes; a truck and body ?u Simon Brothers of Weta: a now Fordson tractor and plows to Emil Olson of Wanbleo. SCHOOL BOARD ELECTS GRADE TEACHERS At their regular meeting last Friday night the school board of Kadoka Independent school district deliberated until the wee hours of the morning- over the election of grade teachers. Salaries of the tew teachers were cut from $l2O per month to sllO per month. The following received appointments. Miss Jenn Anderson of Sturgis primary and second grade, vliss Beryl Leedom (daughter of C. N. Leedom) third and fourth grades. Miss Marion Hansen (daughter of George Hansen) fifth and sixth grades. Miss Winifred De Vries, Manchest- er S. I). seventh and eighth grades. CHURCH NOTES The Presbyterian church has set ! apart Mav !th for what is called “Vocation Day” and has requested ( the pastors to bring the subject of a life calling to the attention of the young people. Feeling the worth of this, the pastor requests i the presence of the larger girls and ; hoys Sunday morning the 4th. The Junior congregation will Ik* com- bined with this service, hut there| will lie no assistant pastor for this [ special service. The pastor will(try to make his talk on “choosing a life work” interesting to all the children anil desires that all will femain after Sunday school in holies of getting sumo ideas that will ienrich and help their lives. Sunday sa hool 10 a. in. Morning worship 11 a. m. Evening worship 8 n. m Rev. A. V. Bryan, Pastor I LET’S CLEAN UP AND PAINT UP State Fire marshal urges all com- munities to have *‘Clean Up” and “Paint Up” Week. Spring has arrived and with. it should come the desire to clean up. Instead of getting behind a Clean- -lup Day or Clean-up Week, let us resolve that every day and every week will be clean up time. Let us clean up and paint up as a health necessity, as a means of fire prevention; as a great safety meas- ure; as a means for stimulating the pride of our citizenship in their community. Let every one start up by gather- ing up all the litter that has ac- cumulated around their premises during the winter months and after moving it far enough away from the buildings, so that there can lx* no danger: burn it up. Go through the attic, the closets and Imsoment, gather un the old clothes —those good enough should be turned over to Aid societies in the community—those that have no value whatever can l>e burned in the furnace. Let u*' have a real clean up campaign this vear and keep it up as long as nw be necessary to do a real job, then renew it on the same basis this fall to get ready for the winter months. A good(3can-up Campaign means less fires and a nicer appearing com- munity. Commercial, Kiwanis; Rotary and Lions Clubs and other civic organizations can find noth- ing more worth while than to get behind a Clean-up and Paint-up movement. A well organized com- munitv effort will bring wonderful results, bet us make every com- munity in the State a place where its citizens will Ix> proud to dwell. W. N. Van Camn, State Fire Marshal. OLI) MAN WINTER ' STAGED COMEBACK A teriliic Northwest gale started up last Thursday and blew up a regular sand storm, whipping gravel and small pieces of dirt into the eyes of those venturing outside. Frame buildings tremb- led Ix'fore the fierce and contin- uous onslought. The signs on Fryberger’s store came tumbling to the sidewalk with a crash and autos caught on the road had havoc raised with their tops so fierce was the breeze. On Friday the storm abated somewhat and then clouds gather- ed up and brought rain, which quick|y turned into snow with the lowering of the temperature below the freezing point. It snowed all Friday night and the fiulfy wintery stuff was still coming down .Satur- day morning. A lot of it thawed during the dav making the roads as slippery as they could possibly be. Ranchers felt anxiety for their thin cows and calves on the range and those, who had shelter for them horded them in for safe- ty. Sunday morning found another severe frost, recorded on tender vines that h?ul ventured out in hopes of the definite departure of winterv atmosphere. Lilac bushes felt the severity of the chill as well tvs other ahrub* and their tender leaves were turned black. Monday and Tuesday there was evidence a plenty of the snowstorm Much as one does long for spring with the aecompaning garden vege- tables, the growing crops tnd verd- ant pastures for the stock, this precipitetion was a real blessing for this part of the country and can lx* only so regarded. Most of the spring crops were planted and received this moisture which came to stay right there and to soak, in, will give small grain an excellent, start. Grasses are coming splendid ly on the range and cattlemen too look hopefully into the future. Farmers are busy now turning [over their sod -eparatory to plant ing an increased acreage of fta\ | for which according to all indicat- ions there willbe still a fine market ! the coming fall. They are ala > preparing their seed corn beds to I "lant a generously increased cropJof corn to take* care of from 25 to 1 50 per cent more hogs the coming vear over last years production. 1 Taking all in all. every sign points to increased production and a sure| return of prosperity'. Farmer and I Merchant are more optimistic than they have been for the last four years. Surely western South Dakota is coming into its own. ANOTHER IMMIGRANT ARRIVES SATURDAY William A. Munger, father of the rustling Munger Bros, from the. reservation, arrived from Cham- berlain last Saturday with a car- load of immigrant goods. He too will farm in earnest on the reser- vation and from what we havu seen of the Munger Bros. "It is a certain prediction that the old block will prove of the same mater- ial as the business farm like chips. One live wire like that is worth more than ten squatters. jHIGH SCHOOL HOLDS INTEREST ING SPEAKING CONTEST I ~ ; The local high school staged a very good eliminating speaking contest at the Presbyterian church¦ last Friday night. The winners of this contest are to appear in the ! county contest held Saturday night May third at Interior. There were three classes of foren- sic work to he considered, oratory: humorous and dramatic declamat- ' ion. In the first field only Russell(Collins entered with his oration i “Napoleon Bonoparte.”i Miss Lillie Holmes fol'owed him i with her humorous selection(“Grandma Kieler gets grandpa i Kieler ready for Sunday school.”j It was well ‘riven and caused much ; merriment.j Irene Crooker then gave herj dramatic reading “Jack Connor's I son”. It was a masterpiece on the ! stage and very well given and had the contestant made herself heard;j a little plainer, would have no; doubt carried the place. Ciairbelle Buckmastcr kepi the audience chuckling with her humor pur reading “Darius Green and his flying machine.” Norma Washburn, ably rendered her dramatic and touching piece I “Joan De Con-Ha.” The high school orchestra under) I the leadership of supt. Corrington | varied the* program with some on-)j jovable selections. The judo-os, were M>s. Flagg P. Carlisle, Miss Hazlo Hopkins and Mr. Floyd R Dodson. Their decision gave Russell his ( title as representative for the oratory. Lillie Holmes as the humorous °sent'»tivo of the school and Norma Washburn the dramatic vict<V”. GRADE C ROSSING PHYCHOLGGY When ill, people will spend weeks or months in bed and money I'mj doctors, nurses and medicine; with i the hope of saving their life. But, judging from the number lof grade crossing accidents, manyjof them place their life in immi- nent pc*ri 1 bv dashing across the i track in front of a fast-moving| train .and even into the train 1 rather than spend 10 seconds wait-!ing for the train to pass, i The pyscholoo-y of this is noti easily discernible. It is evident,'(however that not grade crossings, hut carelessness in effecting a crossing is the seat of trouble. Many devices have been installed for protection of public at grade| crossings but the most effective;j safeguard is for drivers of autos !to stun look and listen. North Carolina enacted a law re- ouirimv autos to stop before cross- ing and in six months with this law in effect, in spite of increase in I registered antes: grade cr< s ing(casualties on the principal railwa’ : system of that s-*ntn were reduced("0 per cent fatalities boim- t in- stead of 8: injured 11 instead of 2*2j When it >s considered that such a law is intended to s.afeo-eerd the drivers of autos against ininrv or¦tenth at crossings it would seem ) I that ?him al ove all other* should ( fa’-or its <m’ctment. If the “stop law” effects such a(reduction in North Carolina, how | much greater would he the saving :of life from passage of a similar' ' ’aw in all states. MINISTERIAL PORKER TRIUM- PHED IN LOCAL CONTEST What happens when an irresist- ible object meets an immovable body? This query has been asked -from time immemorial by scient- ists and different answers have been received at all times. In fact this question has been relegated by many of the wisest heads as one of the unsolvablc connundrnms. However a partial answer to this question was twice given in Kad- oka the last week. The irresistible Badlands Clioo- honk No. 103 met the immovable McNally calf. The irresistable No. 103 won. Similarity last Friday when Jens Holst tried to use language which starts the ordinary hog moving on a six year old sow, which had been accustomed to the gentlejcoaxing voice of Rev. O. H. Olson,(all these many years, he roused (her righteous indignation. She (turned like a flash upon the im- ! movable and intrepid Jens Holst iin the Niels Nielsen feed lots. 1 Here again the irresistable object won. Niels spied his companion prostrate on the ground and j>alo as a sheet. Mr. Holst had to heicarried home and Dr. Henningsjfound a broken knee cap. This week he is limping about hoping to recover the full use of his limb. The rcbeltous porker in question, ! it is interesting to note; is t thour- oughbred of the Du roc .Jersey breed that was shinned in here by Mr. C N. 4 eedom and in her prime brought the royal price of S2OO.¦ She had plaved her part and was iust- marching off the stage when ' she cut. tbis caper on the unsuspoct ' ing Jens Holst. a similar gathering of Haakon county assessors. A list of the assessors present will he found in the minutes of the county commissioners which appear in another column of this paper. FIRE WASTE According to recently published figures, one city dwelling is de- stroyed bv fire in the United States every four minutes. Farm build- ings are burned at the rate of one every seven minutes. One hospital, five churches and five school houses burn down every day. Every day 11 persons lose their lives and 17 are injured by fire. '1 he orosperity of a country is determined quite as much by the amount of its needless waste as by the amount of its accumulated wealth. As a necessity in establishing a sound basis of credit in commercial transactions, insurance had its origin in private enterprise and it has attained its commanding posit- ion as a world force for betterment of social conditions of mankind through the initiative, abilit- and courage of a group of men as much deserving of immortal fame and ,rlory as anv other class of bene- factors of the human race. State trading in field of insurance lias never advanced the cause bv a material improvement in practice. Neeeisarv reforms and changes a> dictated by experience have been evolved h.v private companies and I it is due to these and these alone ? hat insurance business ha*- be- come oiio of colossal magnitude and world-wide extent. ROAD WORKER IS KILLED IN RUNAWAY AT MURDO News arrived here from Murdo on Tuesday to the effect that a sad accident had occured there the dav before. Walu ¦ Mittelstadt of Heron Lake Minnesota had recently' been cm-; ployed on a road grading gangj ~’orking near the Jones county i seat, it is not exactly known just. how the accident happened, hut i it is presumed that the lad put too much faith in a team which j was hut partially broke to the) harness. The theory is that he | stepped from the wagon onto the; tongue to adjust the harness of one of the steeds, which scared j ? hem and made them get away and he being unable to regain his scat ! in time to check the excited team ! was thrown to the ground when j the wheels passed over his body. The runaway was noticed and ?he driver looked for. He was) found unconscious and at once rushed to Murdo. Medical aid was) ineffective. The injuries were too) serious. Death claimed its ownj shortly. The family was notified and a-r brother arrived from Heron lake) to take the hodv home for burial, in the family lot. NEPHEW OF LOUIS DETER- MANN HAS DISSAPEARED i Our fellow townsman Louis Dot-! ennann lias received a letter from! his brother at Mitchell last Tues- day to the effect that his (John, Determan’s) son Albert had been) missing since last Saturday night , and that no trace had been found j of him since. He asked to he on ! the look out for him. It is feared I that he met with foul play. Albert Determann «°-ed seven-} teen, the missing lad, was a bright student in attendance of the Mitch- ell high svhool. He was a senior, a lad of splendid character and had excellent standings in his work and never had even an unexcused < absence. The lad was last seen at the K. C. hall on the night in j question driving his uncles car., His parents are prostrate with grief and worry. Police have ex tended a wide search for him and are asking every available rvmree of information regarding the whereabouts of Albert. HIRAM JOHNSON MUST HAVE BEEN MISTAKEN I, “ IOur readers will remember that, Hiram Johnson remarked at St. Louis right after the primary elect- i ion results in South Dakota thatj "If ever an election was attempted; to he bought it was done in South :j Dakota for Calvin Coolidge.” A sworn statement filed at the ! ; state capitol in Pierre this week i> evidence to the contrary. It is compiled bv Lyle B. Branch, state treasurer oi the Coolidge Campaign¦ Committee and T. B. Roberts,(chairman of this same committee.(This statement is itemized and(shows expenditures in this .-tut*(amounting to $31,025.00. Senator Sterling reports spend- ing $3,017.13 in behalf of his cand- idacy for the United States Senate. When the Hiram Johnson finnne- : • a statement comes out, it will be iiforesting reading to note just how i much money the chewing gum iking Wrigloy put into this state.
