(Contributed by an eye witness. ) Alien Registration Job Showing Good Progress Ninety-three aliens had registered at the Rolla post office up to the first of this week. While the period for aliens to register does not expire until the end of December, it is being urged that aliens come in and register at once, if they have not done so. Reg- istration in Rolette county is at the Rolls post office. Since regular pos- tal employees have to do the work, with no extra help, it is especially important to them to have the job finished before the holiday post office rush begins. Since the office force is one short on Tuesdays and Sat- urdays, it is urged that aliens de- siring to register come in on some other day of the week, and between . the hours of 9:30 and 4, to avoid being kept waiting. Every effort will be made to accommodate all promptly. The U. S. department of justice has issued a report showing 1,386,- 679 completed alien registration forms received through Sept. 27. An average of 51,300 were registered daily dqring that period North Dakota had registered 1,935 up to that date. Earl G. Harrison, director of reg- istration, expressed satisfaction at the way the completed blanks were coming in and praised the postal officials, who are doing the work, for the careful and accurate job they were doing. Very few forms have had to be sent back to post offices for correction. Director Harrison has called spe- cial attention to the requirement that aliens must report any change in permanent address within five days. Wins L30 Prize A. R. Beardsley has just received a letter from "his brother-in-law, E. M. Sherry, of eattle, Wash., former Rolls resident, telling of his good ortune in winning a $330 cash prize at a "Mr. Wide A. Wake" radio program in that city. The prize had been accumulating for some time, hence the large size of it. Mr. Sher- ry said he just decided he would drop in at the Theatre on the even- ing of Labor Day. Four were chosen for a shot at the big prize. The first one of the four to answer cor- rectly was to win the prize. Mr. Sherry was last on the list and his only chance to win was to have the first three fail to answer correctly. The big prize question was: "Hun- gary issued to King Carol of Ru- mania, an ultimatum, demanding cession of part of Transylvania. How long did they give him to answer?" The first three erred in answering. Mr. Sherry came straight back with the correct'answer, which was "Five Minutes." He got the $330-cash, two theatre tickets and a pound of the coffee being advertised on the ]program. With part of the money Mr. Sherry made a trip back "home" and saw friends he had not seen for 50 years. Many local people remem- ber him as a former Rolette county superintendent of schools. He cer- tainly was up on details of his curr- ent history. Sing In College Chorus Ben Schei, senior in education and Marian Cupp of Rolla, freshman in the school of applied arts and scienc- es at the N. D. Agricultural college, are members of the college mixed chorus, the NDAC publicity bureau announces The first appearance of the chorus this school year was Oct. 28 when the 70 voices supplied a choral background for Paul Robe- son's presentation of the currently popular song "Ballad for Americans" in his recital at Fargo. The chorus also will sing at college convocations and other special occasions during the school year. Political Rally Set For Rolla Tomorrow Evening A Republican political rally is scheduled for the city auditorium in Rolla, Friday, Nov. 1, at 8 p. m. Speakers will include Charles Robert- son, candidate for congressman; Al- vin Strutz, candidate for attorney general, and Herman Thorson, candi- date for secretary of state. A special feature of this rally will be a 45 minute moving picture show in the interests of Willkie and Mc- Nary, for president and vice-presi- dent. Arrangements for this have been made by the Young Republican organization. The films show pic- tures of the farms of both the presi- dential and vice-presidential candi- ed, tipped the hay rack off the trailer and pulled the trailer away, so only a couple of new tires were burned on it. The ear also was pulled away after the department arrived but it was burning and could not be saved. RFATLASSIFICATION ACT AS APPLIED TO COUNTY (Continued from page one) other words they could reduce the mill levies to raise the same amount of taxes. The Star feels it only fair to point out that to expect these gov- erning bodies to reduce the mill levies on the larger tax bases under existing conditions in North Dakota would be to expect a genuine miracle. Almost all sub-divisions are burdened with debt, and many schools function only because they are able to get relief funds of various kinds. We do not believe even the sponsors of dates, and also pictures treating on this act could or would hope that farm problems and national issues [the taxing bodies would do anything Music is also provided.

" kSSIGN SEPJAL NEMBER,q TO COUNTY REGISTRANTS (Continued from page one) by assisting them in furnishing in- formation to the local board and ad- vising them concerning appeals. In order to protect the interests of the government or of registrants, he shall appeal any classification he thinks should be appealed." Dr. Paul Reed is medical advisor to the local board and will examine men called. Then there is a district medical board for each of the four districts in the state, stationed at Grand Forks, Minot, Bismarck and Fargo. If further medical check-up is deemed necessary by the local physician, the registrant will be sent to one of these district boards.
