At least 4000 acres oi sugar beets have already been contracted and a higher acreage is expected to follow befbre the dose of another week. The $'25,000.00 mark on the donut move account of the fitct that earlier in the season pop,dar op,uion indicated the proposed road to be only a promotion schcIlle• The ol]icers of the Sugar Company who have been in charge of railroad affairs "ire delighted with the pro- gress which has been made by the pm)l)!e, ospecia[ly [tL (]cnLer and iLs' tribuLary section. They gave every atio~,s is to be reached at the preseut a~suranee at the meeting last week r a t e, before many days. Many that the road will be built and show- farmers have been baeku an~ aboutI ea their willingness to sign a con- si~; i::g contracts Lo grow beets onlLract to that effect. As a last substitution Young Erlen- born of Denver has been offered for Frank White who was under contract to meet local Bud Boyd in a 10-round bout i here February 1st. Since last week when it was known that White could not be here, Manager Means has not permitted Bud to break training; knowing that he would be able to stage a fight with some boxer• Indi- cations are that the bout will be more interesting from the ~peetator's stand. point with Youog Erlcnborn in the ring than if White had fulfilled his contract. Erlenborn comes from the younger class of fighters in Denver, This fact, how- ever, does not mean that he is easily handled, because such is not the case. He is one of the pluckiest little fighters in the west. He is a clean boxer in the ring and never is meau in meeting his opponent. He is an opeu fighter, ac- cording to the local men who have seen Into in action, and ought not be difficult for the local boy to get at• He wilt be] in good condition as he has recently been through several stiff contests. Of course local sports expect to see the home boy win and are sure of the !outcome if hard work and trainicg may be taken as a criterion. Boyd is every inch muscle and has worked his indur- encc to the maximum pitch. He will enter the ring in perfect condition, bar- ring accidents by that time. The fight being called Saturday night gives the local boy only a few short days in which to prepare, but that lime beck- ed by eevaral weeks of strenuous work ought to pat him in the ring at his L)est.
