Polson’s Pirates, with only one loss as they move into the final weekend of action before the divisional tournament, have been voted No. 1 in the Associated Press power poll.

The Pirates gained the prime spot last week after they defeated Butte Central by 16 points.

Last weekend they just added to the opinion with victories over Hamilton and Eureka.

All shook up

Mysterious temblors are rocking and rolling Valley View residents these days. The series in what seem to be localized minor earthquakes started last Thursday about 9:30 p.m. A second shock followed about 10 minutes later.

Friday night another tremor was reported at 8:25 p.m. Another was felt early Saturday. Others followed Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

Mrs. Max Mahler comments that the shaking definitely is not caused by sonic booms, that there is a rolling, swaying motion in each instance. A rumbling noise also has been noted.
