MUNITY THEWALSH COUNTY PRESS ° WEDNESDAY, APRIL 9, 2017 Page 5 (Very Late-) Brealdng News for Park River April, 1917 By David Larson for The Press PARK RIVER, N.D. -- The United States officially declared war on Germany on April 7. The US Senate approved President• Wil- son's declaration by a vote of 82-6. North Dakota's Senator Gronna" was orie of the 6 who voted against the declaration. For the next year and a half the war would affect the daily life of all Park Riverites. The opinions of Park River's two news- papers were divided at first. Frank Prochaska's Park River Gazette was moderate in its support at best, while Publisher E. Smith-Peterson of the Park River Herald put the dec- laration front page center: WAR DECLARED! Before the end of the month ef- forts Were being made to increase food production. And the national prohibitionists were at work, noting that prohibition would save the food equivalent of12 million loaves ofbread per day. By May many city residents had plowed up even their front yards to make gardens. Sam Holland--the maker of the old car that Bill Skjerven used to drive in the Fourth of July Parade for many years--sold his machine shop, and was ready to move to Winner, Minnesota, where here was taking up land. . CA Jeglum, President of the Adams bank, purchased the bank at Patterson, California. Its assets amounted to $227,000. Principal Oldenburg of the Agri- cultural School resigned--having been in the position, less than six months. The Park River Gazette blamed "petty and tactless mana- gerial interference" by a member of the school board..[The member was not named, of course, but everyone in town knew that the editor was re- ferring to E. Smith-Peterson, the publisher of the Park Ri.'ver Herald.] Bert Stary's commercial garage in Conway burnt to the ground. All told, 19 automobiles were de- stroyed. More news from WCAS: Miss Selina Gunhus (you oldsters will re- member her as Mrs. Bj0meby) presented the ag school with a large photograph of the signing of the Women's Suffrage Bill. A Holstein rancher has pur- chased the cement mines near Con- crete, 1040 acres. Severt Kjelland of Golden Town- ship received word that his son, Soren M. Kjelland had been killed in France. •Young Kjelland had moved to the Canadian Northwest six years earlier (or 24 years earli- er, depending on which newspaper a peison read). He entered the farm equipment business in Kindersley, Saskatchewan, then operated a ranch, before volunteering for serv- ice in the Canadian army. He was about 33 years of age. Young Kjelland enlisted last year, but did not write to his parents about it tin- til last winter when he had been in France for five. His brothers, Sander and Adolf, went to Saskatchewan to look after his af- fairs.. The City Board of Health issued its annual call for a city cleanup. In. view of the many cases of typhoid fever, last fall, it was further resolved that a special.effort be made to im- provethe sanitary c0nditions, in- "eluding removing all manure from hams, and using lime to disinfect outhouses. The clean-up must be completed by 10 May. Any work remaining undone on May 11 will be completed by the city at the prop- erty-owner's expense. • The 3TK Orchestra played at the Lyric on Wednesday.

Immunization protects future generations. Vaccines have reduced and, in some cases, elimi- nated many diseases, that killed or se- verely disabled, people just a few generations ago. For example, small- pox vaccination eradicated that dis- ease worldwide. Your children don't have to get smallpox shots anymore because the disease no longer exists anywhere in the world. By vacci- nating children against rubella (Ger- man measles), we have dramatical- ly reduced the risk that pregnant Women will pass this virtts on to their fetus or newborn, and birth defects associated with that vires are seen in only rare cases in the United States when a pregnant woman who was never vaccinated against rubella is exposed to someone who contract- ed rubella in another country. If we continue vaccinating now, and vac- cinating completely, parents in the thture may be able to trust that some diseases of today will no longer be around to hama their children in the future.
