The four boys were reported- ly also driving a pickup when the incident occurred. The ju- veniles were released to their parents' custody. On Sunday, about 6:30 a.m., a Sidney light pole, located near the courthouse, was sheared off when a vehicle driven by Mark Anderson, 21, Sidney, went out of control. The accident resulted in grass being tornup on the court- house lawn, a "ka-put" light pole and slight injuries to one passenger in the vehicle, ac- cording to the police report. Others with Anderson at the time of the mishap were Rick Scheetz, Dennis Scheetz and Jack Henderson, police said. Rick Scheetz was reportedly taken to the Community Me- morial Hospital where he was treated for minor injuries. Sidney police are still in- vestigating that accident. Highway Litter Needs Cleaning A Highway Clean-up Cam- paign starts at 2:30 p.m., this Saturday, at the Richland Coun- ty Fairgrounds, west of Sidney. Boy Scout Troop 187 is spon- soring the clean-up with John Ratliff, scout master and John Kelly, assistant, urging anyone interested -other troops, packs, a organization or individual - to help in the two hour clean- ing, which will end at the City Dumpgrounds. A free hotdeg barbecue, with refreshments, is planned at Central Park when the job is cpleted. ior high students. But, he re- plied, "I specialize in anyone from age 'three to 93'." On the first appointment, Nor- din said, "First of all, I diag- nose the problem. Then, if nec- essary, use a variety of thera- peutic techniques." He alsoprefers-- and stress- es the need -- to counsel par- ents, as well as patients, &wing the entire therapy. He usually refers the person to a specialist or urges them to see one, if they haven't, in case the problem is purely a physical one. He noted he speaks to teachers of the students, when and if necessary, to encourage them to help the student with a hearing problem by making them use the good ear to the "best possible advantage." Therapy, Nordin felt, can us- ually help those who have a speech or hearing problem as a result of cleft palate, brain damage, cerebral palsy or aphasia, when the speech center of the brain is damaged from an accident, stroke or a war. Annual Meeting The Richiand County Farm- ers Union annual fall convention is this Friday, in the community Room of the Richland National Bank, Sidney.

Bumper Crop For Beets Reported In Valley Area Pre-harvest samples indicate that sugarbeet growers for Hol- ly Sugar Corporation in the Rocky Mountain area will have one of the finest crops inrecent years, with Sidney reporting an all-time record in quality and sugar content. According to GlenW. Yeager, vice president - agriculture, the Sidney factory district is ex- pecting a record crop. Yeager said that the predic- tions are based on scientific analysis which Holly's agrono- mists have been conducting throughout the growing year. In the pre - harvest tests, samples are taken from grow- ers' fields and sent to Holly's Hereford, Tex., laboratory for analysis. Holly Sugar's 14 receiving stations, from Williston, N. D., tO Miles City, will open this Friday for the sugar beets. A few early deliveries were made last Friday and Saturday, but growers agreed to main- tain a controlled harvest, hop- ing to meet their Nov. I dead- line. Charles Mar shall, vgricultur- Hunting Okayed For Richland With the exception of the western portion, Richland Coun- tY is now open for hunting and fishing, accorilng to Gov. For- rest Anderson and the Richland County Commissioners. The executive order to open Richland County for hunting was issued Tuesday. Hunters are cautioned to check with landowners before entering private land to hunt, however. Sheriff Harold Grin- olds reminded all sportsmen to "observe carefully all post- ed land notices in the county issued prior to re-opening for hunting. The posted land notices are still in effect," Grinolds warns. The closed area in the west- ern portion of the county will be marked but sportsmen are urged to check with landown- ers to make sure no posted or closed area violations occur. Dry rangeland conditions in the western part of Richland County is the reason that area remains closed to sportsmen. Last week, McCone, Dawson Caution Children On Beet Trucks Children playing on and near routes used by beet trucks brought complaints from driv- ers this week, according toSid- hey Police Chief, Johnny Schmitt. Schndtt warns parents tocau- tion their children and make them aware of the hazards con- nected with playing on or near streets, particularly those be- ing used by loaded beet trucks. The areas of prime concern are 9th Avenue (known as the Truck Route) and Holly Street, The streets are now heavily trafficked with beet trucks and the loaded vehicles cannot stop as readily as an automobile, SchrMtt pointed out. Beet truck drivers, in the area mentioned, have submit- ted several complaints to the police department about the problem of children creating a hazard for the drivers. Schmitt also said any further complaints received will be act- ed on promptly. Paents are again urged to keep their chil- dren off the Sidney ,treets. 13 Legions Meeting For Convention Here Members of The American Legion and its auxiliary from 13 posts in southeastern Mon- tana communities will gather in Sidney, this Saturday, for the annual fall convention of the Legion's District 10, James Dethman, local post comman- der, reported.

Again, hunters are urged to check with landowners for per- mission to hunt before entering private land. ist for Holly in Sidney said he was "most encouraged" on crop prospects. "Growing conditions have been ideal and pre-harvest samples for sugar content and purity and beet weight are most encouraging for a very fine crop. It may he the bestcropon record here if the weather lets growers get the beets out," Marshall said. Summer improvements in the plant will increase slicing capa- city and output. About 350 men and women are employed in the factory and at weighing stations during the harvest season. This year, beets from the Miles City area, which formerly were processed atthe factory in Hardin, which closed last spring, will be processed at the Sidney plant. Harvesting the bumper crop started in the Sidney area Sept. 24. The factory started slicing operations Monday.
