Tn the opening round Wednesday Wolf Point broke away from a half time deadlock with Circle and went on to defeat the Wilcats 69 to 56. Coach D. B. Kingery started his s�oond five against Scobey and thev played the entire first half as well as nart of the 3rd quarter. The subs performing well jumped into a 15-11 quarter lead but they lost a 10 point lead in the second and it was 25-25 tie game at half-time. Steele and Buckles entere.i the Ponlar lineup early in the 3rd and \<ith three minutes remaining in that period Renz. Christian, and Diserly came in. but they were unable to tike the lead away from the Spartans and trailed 42 to 43 at the quarter's end. Poplar had trouble connecting in the 4th and Scobey deadly on free throws car/ied the game right down to the wire. Renz hit the tying basket with seconds remaining forcing the game into the overtime period. In the overtime. Renz hit a basket and 2 free throws. Buckles the same, and Steele with seconds remaining canned a jump shot to ice the contest for Poplar at 68 to 65. Scobey center.

Steele 5, and Baker 4 for Poplar. Circle grabbed consolation honors from Scobey in the curtain raiser Thursday night, taking a close 56 to 52 verdict. Poplar captured the Championship with a well-earned 64 to 59 victory over their arch-rivals the V.'olf Pcint Wolves in a hard fought battle for top honors. This was Poplar's first victory over Wolf Point in five years, not since Dec. 23. 1954. had Poplar beaten the Wolves, thai victory was a 47 to 42 overtime contest at Poplar. The win over Wolf Point definitely establishes Poplar as the class of this Eastern B Division. Wolf Point, undefeated in conference play, has thoroughly trounced all conference opponents so far this season. Wolf Point played a hustling, fast ball-handling brand of basketball and came up with one of their better games of the season, in losing .their second game in nine starts. Poplar, playing in spurts, sometimes looked like a very smooth cage machine, but at other times they handled the ball rather erratically and were not working the ball around and setting themselves up for clean shots as they are capable of doing so easily. Poplar worked hard however, and until the last quarter their defensive checking was tight. Especially outstanding was the work of Christian. Renz and Buckles on the backboards, which gave control of the boards to Poplar over a taller Wolf Point team. This was one of the highlights of the game and an important feature in the Indian victory. Poplar, starting fast, scored first on Darrell Christian's and Scottie Buckles' 2 free throws apiece to lead 4-0. Dasinger hit for the Wolves and the Indians quickly streiched out to a early 10-2 margin and held a 23 to 16 first quarter advantage. The Indians increased their margin 2 points in the second frame outscoring the Wolves 14 to 12. leaving the floor at half-time holding a 37 to 28 margin. With Darrell Christian hooking consistently from around the key hole. Poplar matched their second quarter output of 14 points, while checking the Wolves to 10. moving to a commanding margin of 51 to 38 entering the final eight minutes. Wolf Point staged their biggest threat of the game in the 4th. once closing the gap to a slim 3 point deficit of 62 to 59. but the Indians though faltering, proved equal to the threat and on Diserly's 2 free shots near the end of the game set the final score at 64 to 59 in their favor. Bob Renz playing his usual steady, good rebounding game, flipped in 24 counters including 10 of 12 from the charity line to take individual game scoring honors. Bob sparked scoring in the 4th with 9 points. Darrell Christian turned in probably the outstanding performance of the game. Along with hitting consistently on a hook shot and netting 4 of 4 gift tosses, he played a terrific rebound game for Poplar. Scottie Buckles, though off his usual scoring game, collected 14. and was strong on the boards. Steel and Diserly scored 6 and 4 respectively and turned in good floor games. Babcock. rangy Wolf Point center, and Dasinger. guard, scored 18 and 13 respectively for the losing cause. Poplar's marksmanship at the free throw line really paid dividends, as the Indians, outscored from the field 48 to 40, converted on 24 of 34 free throws for a 705%. Wolf Point hitting on 11 of 18 shot a highly respectable 61% of their free throw attempts. Poplar's next games are with Fairview there tonight and Plenty-wood here Saturday night.

E. R. Mer-riman. McCone County ASC committee chairman said today. A "new wheat farm" is one on which no wheat was seeded for grain during any of the years 1952. 1953. and 1954. To be considered during the present request period, a new wheat farm must also be one on which spring wheat will be seeded for 1955 harvest. This second � and final � new wheat farm application period for 1955 will end February 1. Merr:-man said. The first request period ended June 25. 1954. Farms which received allotments as a result of request filed during the first period will not be considered for additional allotment during the current request period. Forms for making application are available at the Conty ASC office. Applicants should thoroughly complete their requests. Merriman said, since the form provides essential information for use in determining the need of the operator for an allotment . The chairman also pointed out that an application must cover an entire furm and not just a tract of land which is normally considered as part Df a larger farming unit. The present request period is made available to afford consideration of farms which may have changed hands since the first application period and farms where 1955 operations may be changed due to conditions not known last spring. The chairman cautioned that only applications made on the proper form (CSS-19-Wheat) and filed at the County office by February 1 can be considered for an allotment. registration period for indian voters A call for registration of all members of the Assiniboine and Sioux tribes who are residents within the Fort Peck reservation area was issue.!

Two Lion projects, which have been under discussion for some time started to take shape at the meeting. The matter of a mass immunization campaign for pre-school and grade school children will take place in the near future. The health committee will make arrangements to give the shots and when the time and place is definitely decided upon the public will be given ample notice. Funds for the project were raised by the Lions in their recent minstrel show. The swimming pool and recreation are* project was again discussed and Dr. James Harns-berger announced that Joe French had offered five acres of land about three miles from town, which already has natural shade and a suitable place for constructing a swimming hole. Lion President Donald Cole appointed a committee headed by Howard Helmer to meet with Mr. Frerich and select the site. They are also asked to investigate the cost of the project and present the figures at the next meeting. It Is the club's idea that it will be a community project, and that the Lions will need the aid of other civic groups to make the project a success. The plan when originally conceived was based on the idea that the cost of the project could be kept down by the use of volunteer workers for a part of the construction. It is hoped to build the swimming pond first and to develop the other facilities from year to year as funds and time are available. The club was given a pleasant surprise when M. T. James, representing the Murphy Corporation, presented a framed 20 by 24 enlargement of the recent Poplar Standard photo of the Lions Harmony Lane Minstrels to the club.

H. L. Man-waring told a meeting of Agricul lural Stabilization and Conservation committeemen recently. Man-waring is Deputy Administrator for Production Adjustment of the U. S. Department of Agriculture's Commodity Stabilization Service. ASC committeemen, he pointed! out. have a primary place in an, enterprise that runs into the billions of dollars. In addition they have responsibilities for such other programs of social and economic importance as acreage allotment and marketing quota programs, the Agricultural Conservation program, crop insurance, the wool program, and such others as the Secretary of Agriculture may assign. All siom from laws enacted by Congress and all arc under the direction of the Secretary. He reminded the farmer committeemen that while their official responsibilities are great, they are limited to those operations which are specifically assigned to them. As employees of the Government they are not to operate as proponents or opponents jf general farm organizations, ror of the policies and programs of such organizations. Nor are they to operate as pressure groups to influence legislation. Committeemen, he emphasized, are responsible to the Secretary of Agriculture for the best possible administration of operations assigned to them by the Secretary. As individual farmers, committeemen have the same rights and privileges of joining and participating in the actviitics of farm groups as other farmers. He cautioned, however, that it should be clear that what they do and what they advocate as individuals is not confused with their official positions. American farmers, he pointed out, through the democratic operation of farm programs by elected farmer committeemen, have set an inspiring example of democracy for the rest of the world. Clear Snow and Ice From Walks The snow and ice season is with us again and it might be well to issue a word of warning to property owners and tenants about clearing sidewalks of snow and ice. While the city has no ordinance requiring the clearing of snow, the owner or tenant can be held liable if some one should slip and fall on the ice or snow on your sidewalk, and get hurt. If an owner of a piece of property is also the tenant, then of course the owner is liable for any acident caused by his failure to clear the sidewalk or steps. If the property is rented to a single tenant, then the tenant is liable in case of an accident caused by neglect. However, if several tenants use a common walk or entrance, then the owner of the property or landlord is liable. Such possible liability for accident can be prevented by the person who would be liable if they use all possible caution by clearing the snow or ice from their sidewalks or entrances to their property.

S. farmers this year are taking advantage of price support programs�Commodity Credit Corporation loans and purchase agreements�in a big way. Leo S. Kol-stad. State Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation administrative officre. laid this week. The u. s. Department of Agriculture's report on commodities, largely of the 1954 crop, under loan and purchase agreements through November 15. with most of the corn still to come in. shows a total of more than 486 million bushels of grains and more than 35 million cwt. ot beans, sorj,rums, and rice.

The Red Cross bloodmobile unit will be in Poplar Thursday. Jan. 13 in the reception room of the armory from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Since the small unit is visiting Poplar at this time quota for this visit is only 36 pints, however, it is hoped to have 45 to 50 volunteers to insure having 36 eligible donors. The appearance of the unit in Poplar is sponsored by the Women's Club under the chairmanship of Mrs. C. R. Nelson. The committee points out that the need for blood has not ended just because the United States is not now engaged in war. There are many uses for blood for the civilian population and the use of blood and blood fractions Is becoming increasingly important In medicine and medical treatment. Since the blood unit last visited Poplar, this community has received some direct benefits from the blood program carried on by the Red Cross. Ten persons in the Poplar area have received gamma globulin immunization shots and each shot requires 30 pints of blood to provide the globulin. In addition a local hospital has been supplied/" with 12 pints of plazma used fe'r treatment of accident cases. It is also to be remembered that if some rare blood type was needed here that this blood would be made available here through the Red Cross blood bank in Great Falls. So while Poplar does not have a blood bank, this community is still receiving services made possible by its blood donors. The blood gathering unit last visited Poplar in May and since healthy persons can give blood as often as every five weeks, persons who donated blood in May can do so again without any harm. asc county committee posts filled andrew shields funeral held at fort kipp Funeral services for Andrew Shields, a resident of the Fort Peck reservation throughout his life, were held from the Catholic church at Fl.
