Nov. 10, 1969 – SHOW THEM ON TUESDAY
November 11, Veterans Day, is a time when the nation honors its war dead and the living veterans of all wars. Local and state American Legion officials urge all Idahoans to “show their colors” Tuesday by flying the American flag from homes, businesses and public buildings. What better way to prove to those fighting in Vietnam that we are solidly behind them? What better answer to sit-ins, demonstrations, flag and draft card burnings?
Fly America’s flag proudly. Help show our men in Vietnam that we have not deserted them or the freedoms for which they are giving their lives.
JACOBSON BROTHERS DOING WELL
Al Jacobson, from Sandpoint, is assistant football coach at Whitworth College, Spokane. His brother, senior Larry “Jake” Jacobson, is team captain for the Whitworth Pirates this year. A third brother, Roy, a senior at SHS, was a starter in the Bulldog backfield throughout the football season and, like his brothers, likely will play a good deal of basketball for the school this winter.

Pend d’Oreille Review
Nov. 10, 1919 – FELL IN WATER & IN LOVE
Earl L. “Scoop” Shutz and Miss Lydia Anderson were united in marriage in October, the belated announcement coming just this week.
It appears that one day last summer “Scoop,” in the regular course of nosing for news, went to the Humbird Lumber company’s office to interview Miss Anderson regarding falling in Sand creek at the waterworks dam on a Sunday afternoon. It was a good story and it lacked nothing in the telling when “Scoop” had embellished the incident for the columns of the Review. The acquaintance thus made with the lady of the creek developed into a romance and Oct. 18, “Scoop” got the marriage license, and Justice of the Peace Myrvin Davis pronounced the words that bind.
NO SCHOOL ARMISTICE DAY
At a special meeting of the school board Tuesday afternoon it was decided that no session would be held in the public schools of the district on Armistice day, November 11.
The White Lunch on First avenue was re-opened to the public Monday with the lifting of the quarantine which had been put on the place by the illness of the proprietress, Mrs. James Folden, with diphtheria.
