Brindle fared little bet- ter with 25 of the Selz votes, while his opponent led with 47 votes. Van Beck and Cotton were obviOusly not getting their money’s worth in the election, especially since few Russian voters could make it to the polls in the first place. \Vrth their conspiracy revealed by the Reporter, it would be difficult to get the money back legally. According to the Reporter, “The law is plain and the penalties severe where money is paid for any purpose in exchange for votes.” But, if the penalties were not severe enough, Van Beck and Cotton would have to watch as their bribe money was used for something Other than the church; the Russian settlers had decided before the election that the bribe money was to be used for a grand New Year’s cel- ebration. It was not reported if Van Beck and Cotton, who inadvertently fi- nanced the celebration, would be invited. ' ‘ ' 'Jim Jam Jems Dakota Datebook. written by Tessa Sandstrom November 9, 2021 — Sometimes the truth hurts, and even offends, but that didn’t stop Sam Clark and CH. Crockard, publishers of “Jim Jam Jems” from writing the truth in a blatant manner. - The magazine’s forward warned of the material enclosed in “Jim Jam Jems’s” colorful cover: “Here in the confines of this little booklet, we can say that which appeals to us, without fear of the result...Here we will let our imagination run riot;...we intend to write just whatever we damn please and say just as much....Kind reader have a care; if you are one of those ‘holier- than-thou’ individuals who dislike plain unvamished truth, then delve no farther into this volume, for what is written here may shock your immor- tal soul, may shatter your faith in humanity and forever damn you—damn you.” , The publication was widely read, but at least one “holier—than—thou” in- dividual delved too deep. Today in 1912, Clark and Crockard were indict- ed by the federal grand jury in Fargo for sending “obscene and immoral” reading matter in interstate mail. Meanwhile, news dealersthroughout the state and in Minneapolis and St. Paul were also being arrested for selling the publication “Jim Jam Jems”, however, continued “selling like hot-cakes,” and Clark and Crockard continued publishing‘the bOOkIet throughout the trials. . Clark and Crockard contended the guilty conviction. The publishers in- sisted that the publication was in no way obscene andeven helped bring sev- eral people to justice through exposure in the ' e. Their mission, they said, “was the cleaning up of some of the filthiness existing in the country.” For them, the magazine was just political and social commentary. Their corn- mentary, however, often turned to those in charge, whether it was the church or political officials. To the state, however, the publication was obscene, and the District Attorney ’s intention Was to protect the home by putting the pub- lishers out of business. . For the next five years, Clark and Crockard contended the conviction, and the trials often flopped back and forth between guilty and not guilty. The legal battle finally ended December 1917 when they were found guilty. “Jim Jam Jems” continued 'to circulate, however, and Clark and Crockard retained the colorful voice in later issues. Clark later moved to Min- neapolis, and began taking on other endeavors. He spent less time on publication, and the August 1929 issue was the last of “Jim Jam Jems”. “Dakota Datebook" is a radio series fiom Prairie Public in partnership with the State Historical Society of North Dakota and with finding fiom theNorth Dalmta Humanities Council.

Before the day had even begun, $10, 000 had al- ready been raised. Quilts were shown in groups of five, with bidding open for 6 minutes each round. Bids Were made online using the Givesmart plat- form. While the auction started off with some technical difficulties, all was made well by their own “tech guru”, Kyle Rydell, who is also the camp’s Associate Program Director. Emceed by Rebecca Kjelland and Board Chair- man, Gary Helland, each quilt was individually shown off, with some hav- ing amazing backstories. Like “Penguin Dance”, donated in memory of Rev— erend Justin Johnson, a former PRBC camper, counselor and donor. Justin and his wife Melissa met at camp, serving together as counselors. Executive Director of Park River Brble Camp, Rebecca Kjellandhas been involved, in some way or another, with the quilt auction for 15 years. “I am always grateful and humbled to see all the wonderful people who sup—7 port this ministry.” Thiscouldn’t have been accomplished without the help of camp staff, volunteers, board of directors and most important, the church- es and community who support the camp all year round. Because of their support, PRBC raised just over $30,000! Quilts and silent auction items can be picked up at the camp Monday- Friday, 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM.

By Daniel Biggers CRYSTAL, N.D. — It has been a busy fall here at the Valley- Edinburg Middle School. Stu- dents have been working hard in fall sports, and the junior high vol- leyball season just wrapped up this week. Congrats to all players on a good season! Continuing the busy fall, Student Council mem- bers have been volunteering with the Pembina County Backpack food drive preparing food to be sent home to students each week. It has been a great experience for our students to see programs such as these in our community.‘ 'The 7th grade in particular has been busy balancing ex- tracurricular activities and school work. Student Council has been very active in the school helping create activities for the entire stu— dent body to participate in. This past Friday as an example, they or- ganized a fun assembly with Hal- loween themed games... On the schoolwork side of things, the 7th grade social studies class has been busy working through World Geography. Recently, they have embarked on a two-week project where they are illustrating a map of South America by hand, our current unit topic. It’s always fim seeing their artistic sides with the finished product, as it also tends to help them remember countries and features of South America as well. They will con- tinue to move from continent to continent as the year progresses, learning about a place’s geography and culture. I hope everyone continues to have a safe fall and enjoys the last few days of good weather before the usually dreaded first snow hits!

Bush’s obfuscation about the rationale for invasion of Iraq. Trump’s act of stonewalling the January 6 Select Committee and the likely burial of the truth of the actors who led and organized the insurrection would rank as one of the darkest days in the history of the nation. The pernicious effects of executive secrecy have not deterred advocates of executive privilege from as— serting its central importance to the president’s performance of his constitutional responsibilities, partic- ularly in matters of national security and foreign affairs. Yet advocates of executive privilege have been unable to document instances in which resort to executive privilege has served the interests of the nation. Nor have they been able to document any national disasters that have resulted from executive transmis- sion of information to Congress. There are a good many_ reasons to doubt both the constitutionality and the utility of executive privilege. When the concept of a constitutionally based executive privilege was created by the judiciary in United ‘ States v. Nixon, in 1974, it was said to be grounded in the separation of powers. Proponents of executive privilege have also sought its justification in historical precedents. In truth, both of these efforts to estab- lish the legality of executive privilege rest on flimsy scaffolding. We turn, next week, to these arguments and to the decision in the Nixon case, which opened a Pandora’s box and unleashed an executive power on the nation that has wreaked havoc on our constitutional system ever since. -~ Adler is president of The Alturas Institute, created to advance American Democracy through promotion of the Constitution, civic education, equal protection and gender equality.
