Apologies have been sent to St.
Paul high school as a result of a
series of incidents which happened
during and alter the recent game of
basketball which was played on the
local floor and which the Timber
wolves handily won. Mill City was
definitely in the wrong s > far as the
said incidents were cha ¿ed to us,
but various witnesses have said that
the St. Paul players and spectators
were not entirely pure and were not,
entirely to blame for this series of
events that culminated in the vocifer
ous condemnation of the referees as
such by various fans.
Tuesday night the Gates Pirates
won a hard-fought game with the
local green-clad crew on the cracker
box floor at Gates. It was an un
timely loss for the Timberwolves as
they dropped into second place in
league standings as Sublimity beat
Jefferson on their home floor. I wish
I had a pair of bright green socks to
go with a black leather jacket like a
certain basketball player we all know.
Think it'd score a basket for me?

Out of the Woods
By JAMES STEVENS
\ Great and Good Logger. . .
Back in 1907 I was out on my own
and traveling free. I wish the luck
of the road had taken me then to the
Tongue River country in the Big Horn
Mountains of Wyoming. For I might
have found a job in the woods up
there, being handy with horses, fair
with an ax and fast on my feet. And
now I could boast that once in the
old days I “set in” for Bill Dyche.
He was the boss logger on Tongue
River in 1907 and one of the best of
all his powerful Western tribe.
William K. Dyche dwells today in
Klamath Falls, retired and full of
years. Walt M-Culloch, who knows
all the oldtime king loggers of Oregon,
thinks that Bill Dyche is likely the
"firstest” of them all, because of his
inventions. I’ve heard other authori
