Saturday night to replace Watford City, as that school's team was forced to cancel its game be- cause of illness. The game was fast, clean and well played by both teams, con- sidering it was Sidney's second game of the season and the local's first. i Sidney took an early lead whichI it held throughought the contest, I but never led the Beach team byI more than five points. The scoreI at half time stood 15 to 12 in favorI of Sidney. At the final horn the difference was the same, 27 to 24 for Sidney. Because of illness, Tom Gilman, Beach's regular center, was unable to make the trip. His place was well played by Steve Sleight, who played opposite Turner, last year's Montana All State Center. Because of lack of transportation the local squad was limited to six players. Scoring honors for the locals goes to Kelth Plerzina, but every player was responsible for the good show- ing made. The floor work and ball handling honors were quite evenly divided. The Beach team wishes to take this opportunity to thank Sidney for its invitation and the h~pit- ality wl~ch it showed them. A return engagement has been tentatively set for February 25 with Sidney. The Beach team members mak- ing the trlp were Steve Sleight, Kelth Plerzlna, Eugene Keeskey, Earl Douglas, Merton Brunsvold and Bruce Mlller. Cotton Growin" g Here in December On a trip *south last winter, Der- yle, son of Mr. and Mrs. Erwin Chrtstlanson of Lone Tree, picked a boll of cotton and brought it home. He found five seeds in it which he planted in flower pots in May. The first blossom, which is pink, later turning white, appeared the first part of September. The plants have continued to bighorn, the blossoms lasting only one day, then turning to bolls, which burst into large white balls of cotton. To folks who have never seen cotton growing in the field, these plants are very interesting, so Mrs. Christianson left a plant in the Golden Valley News office, where it is now on display.

John Roberts, member the credentials committee of the Southwestern Association of the Congregational Church, left Wed- nesday for Hettinger to co~lder the ordination of th~ pastor, Rev. W.

V Next Year's T Gas Coupons To Be in Strips To aid in enforcement of gasoline rationing, "T" coupons issued for use in 1944 by commercial vehicles and taxis will be in strips rather than in book form and each cou- pon will be serially numbered the OPA has announced. Present "TT" coupons issued to taxis and commercial vehicles for use during the last quarter of this year become invalid for use by consumers fter December 31, 1943. Under the new plan of issuing "T" COUPOns in strips, only coupons within the range of serial num- bers written on the outside of the folder may be used by operators in obtaining gasoline. Thus it will be easier to detect and trace the illegal ac~dsiUon and use of such co~. With '-r" coupon~ issued In stripe, local boards can hand out the exact number of coupons req~red in- stead of "taLlorlns" or tearing OUt excess coupom~ The advantage of this method Of luuanees includes: elimination of the oppm~unity for theft or misuse of these loose "tailored" coupons; and savin~ of paper formerly wasted in the pro- cees of destroying these loose stamps.

These are the observations of Mark D. Wor- cester, government wolfer, Who hu been in the county since Novem- ber 20th. Not only have we the fattest and ~until ~cently, al~way~the lar~- est coyotes in .the corn~onweeth, farmers and ranchers agree that this year we have more than ever before. The bad part It is that they have fattened, without a doubt, on farmers' fowls and young animals rather than on their natural and legitimate foods, SUch as ~its, grouse and pheas~, which are scarce this year, Mr. Worcester has. observed. Driven by scarctty of these wild foods, the coyotes have turned to chickens, ducks, geese,, turkeys and even to lambs and calves. Clifford Wagner, of Sentinel Butte, actually caught ooyotes in the act of de- stroylr~ four calves frown his herd. Evidently the domesticated anlmak~ are plentiful, otherwise the coyot~~ ~ would not be so fat. Hard to ~ Farmers and ranchers have beem doing their best to get rid Of the pests, but their suoce~ has been linllted. Exactly half Of the o(~te8 taken by Mr. Worcester, he ~und, had been shot at=and hit. ' were bullets or bullet holes In However, a coyote an astonishing amount of said, and is hard to hit spot. Take off S COyOte'S there isn't much left. The excess fat on the predator's carcasses is no comfort to the wolfer. It makes the skinning Job harder. Mr. Worcester would be happy to have them starve. The coyotes here, well fed, aver- age larger than in other parts where Mr. Worcester has pursued them. In fact, one he caught on Sunday of last week was the largest he ever has taken. Its hide strain- ed the capacity of the goverm~aent, provided stretcher, supposed to be plenty for the The big fellow was taken' ~ the cattle ranch of Dr. C. A, BtlSl~ south of Sentinel Butte. However, lest the doctor take It as a of pride that his ranch produced the "largest coyote, it is also tram that anotl~er caught there the same day was the smallest* one Mr. Worcester had ever taken. Probably the average produced bY the Bush ranch is about on a level with other folks' coyotes. Weather Unfavorable The weather since Mr. Worcester started in this county has bce~ unfavorable for trapping. Alter- nate thawing and freezing fixes the traps' pans so that a cow might step on them without result. Anyway, in his line Of 250 traps, the wolfer, up to Thursday of last week, has taken 22 coyotes since Thanks~ving. He h~ the hides, bout ~ worth, ready to turn over to a cooperative farmer~ and ranchers' ~tion it is planned to form at a mee~ ing te be ce~lad by Ovlda Greater. county agent. They get the from the pelts and PaY a part of the ~lfer's salary. The 8overn- ment and the state I~Y other shar~, The hides now ~ about $13 each, The~ are used in makin~ hoods for aviators. The furs of the coyote and the wolverine are said to be the onlY ones on which the breath will not congeal. No Frosty Coyotes "You've seen a *horse's coat cov- ered with frost, or a cow's. YOU never saw a frosty coyote," Mr. Worcester said. There are now probably no wolves remaining in North Dakota, but coyotes seem to be gaining In recent years, the wolfer said. Mr. Worcester has for territory all of Golden Valley county west of the government fence that sets the western limit of the Badlands sub- marginal area. It is big enough to keep him plenty busy, he says, and to provide a lot of fur for aviators" hoods. Mr. Worcester has brought his wife 'and daughters, Vivian and Barbara Jean, here and Is occ upy~ Lug the upper duplex in the Ed~ Kukowski dwelling. UNCLE'S D~[
