Certain improve- ments to truck and equipment are )lanned. , Mervin Julseth was named a dele- ,ate to the state flremen's convention at Grafton, June 5 and 6, and it is probable that other members of the! department will go to the convention. Senior Class Play Is Well Attended Friday The annual high school senior class play presented in the city auditorium Friday evening was well attended and was well up to the standard of local dramatic productions. The play, "Laugh Clown," was a three-act corn- edy by C. L. Eaddy, with a stolen diamond mystery interwoven into the plot. Supt. C. J. Gludt directed the play, assisted by Miss D. Ione Gold- smith. Between the acts, Arthur Azure who did so well at the state high school contests that he was invited to the regional contests at Minneap- olis, sang two solos, and an instru- mental quartet consisting of Lorna Galloway, Jennie Olson, Anna Jean and Betty Elliott played several se- lections. Baccalaureate Services To Be Hel__dd Next Sunday The baccalaureate services for the senior class of the Rolla high school will be held in the Community church, Sunday, May 26 at 8 p. m. Rev.

Man rshal Bound To District Court Marctl Jeanotte appeared May 20 before A. O. Halvorson, Justice of the peace, charged with obstructing an officer while discharging his duty. He waived preliminary hearing and was bound over to district court. Bail was fixed at $1,000 and as the defend- ant was unable to furnish it, he was committed to the county Jail. Th~ offense was committed while Jas. S. Lewis, city marshal, assisted by Joe Severson, was taking Jeanotte to jail for being drunk and disorderly. The defendant bit Marshal Lewis at least twice, one blow causing injury to the officer. During the hearing Justice Hal- person informed the defendant that no one will be permitted to come into Rolla and try to run the city, or to attack the officers while performing their duties. be made to include every resident of Rolla.
