BAD BOOZE AND BAD MOTOR MAKE MIXUP
Beach, N.D., Sept 26.—Bad booze and a bad motor made bad mixture for Joe Goettsche and W. J. Shanks, Wilton young men, who mixed things in a free-for-all in which knives figured, while enroute from Yates and Wibaux, Mont., in a little roadster. Both men were badly smashed when they drove up to Beach in their car and asked for surgical attention. Neither has any vivid recollection of how the fight started.
