It is located of games were made available to me. Last week I did witness part of an inning of the Agency-VSW game and found one thing. If the VFW lean does or does not win a game this year they sure do get a big bang out of playing. They take nothing serious and I sure woud have liked to have watched the rest of the game. Jim Woods, manager of MK Lanes, deserves a lot of credit as he is assisting Jim Peterson with the coaching duties of the little leaguers and the Babe Kuth along with assisting Kenny Hansen with the Legion team. Jim loves the game and will have away about him to get a lot out ff the kids. This is not discrediting Jim Peterson or Kenny Hansen. According to the schedule. Wolf Point plays in Poplar Saturday at 2 p.m and Sunday. Plentywood comes in to meet the Legion at 2 p.m. The Daba Ruth mees Scobey here also Sunday at 8 p.m. Let's all try to get out and see the games. No more golf course in Poplar and it is really too bad. Many of the Poplar golfers are joining the Wolf Point club which is a good idea if they want to play. There hai been quite a bit of work put in on the Poplar course these past yean but only by just a few while others enjoyed just playing. Three years ago it was Vern Ostlund. Ed Situcr and two years ago Vern Ostlund. Jim Boulds. Kenny Hansen and Lyle Phetteplace. There were on grazing land but the horses would move but not the whiskey, wine or empty beer bottles which were on the fairways. Some people even drove over the greens with their cars thinking they were being funny. It is too bad that there has to be people like that who do not want to see anyone have anything nice. Poplar is a good town and has a right to show off good facilities to visiting people but it looks like there are some people who differ from this opinion and so set out to destroy things. It is a good idea for Poplar and Wolf Point to join together and make a real good course. The Culbertson Saddle club rodeo was a big success. I heard many say that it was a real good show. Many out of towners remarked about how nice the grounds were and the saddle club really has that coming as they put in man hours of work on it. Wes Johnson on an exhibition ride was the only one that came out of the chute three jumps and he was riding backwards then ended up packing the horse. Darrel Martin recently purchased a Class A Go-Kart and he won the Class A race last Sunday at Fairview which is telling Wes Sturgis of Sidney to look out. You fellows had better get on to Arnold Thomson as he sold Wes the Class A motor that is causing all the trouble. The next race is scheduled for Culbertson Sunday.

McKee. examiner of inheritance with the Bureau of Indian Affairs out of Billings, is spending two weeks in Poplar holding hearings on probate cases. Miss Nancy Frances is assisting him as court reporter. After holding hearings at the Fort Peck Indian Reservation for two weeks last year and a week this year and a study of many of the probates in his files, Mr. McKee. Examiner of Inheritance, has indicated the belief that there are too many people who do not understand the law of marriage and divorce. On March 27, 1939, the Tribal Council adopted an ordinance by which the marriage and divorce lays of Montana became the law of the Tribe. There have been a number of cases where the tragic result in probate was reached that: One who had thought ho or the was a husband or wife could not be treated as an hair because a prior common-law marriage of one party had not been dissolved by court divorce. The Tribal Law following the Montana Law, permits common-law marriages, and even though there is no license or ceremony, one person living with another may become married and a court di vorce is necessary to end it.

No more golf course in Poplar and it is really too bad. Many of the Poplar golfers are joining the Wolf Point club which is a good idea if they want to play.

The Culbertson Saddle club rodeo was a big success. I heard many say that it was a real good show. Many out of towners remarked about how nice the grounds were and the saddle club really has that coming as they put in man hours of work on it.
Wes Johnson on an exhibition ride was the only one that came out of the chute three jumps and he was riding backwards then ended up packing the horse.
Darrel Martin recently purchased a Class A Go-Kart and he won the Class A race last Sunday at Fairview which is telling Wes Sturgis of Sidney to look out. You fellows had better get on to Arnold Thomson as he sold Wes the Class A motor that is causing all the trouble. The next race is scheduled for Culbertson Sunday.
