NEWS and VIEWS 
by Grant Helgeson 

Sisseton has become a meca for marriages, says the Sisseton Courier. John Koeppe, 
Clerk of Courts, reports Roberts County issued a total of 497 marriage licenses last year. 
This was the second highest number in the state. 

August proved the most popular month when 59 made their appearance on the docket. The 
other leading month was June when 56 marched to the court house for their valuable paDers. 

The 1965 figure, an all-time record for the Roberts County Courthouse, continues to 
carry into this year. This is evident when Koeppe counted 193 licenses between January and 
June. Studies reveal the average couple spends $40. before leaving the city. 

The great influx is due to Minnesotans. By crossing the state line a couple can cut 
the minimum time necessary to marry from five days to 90 minutes. Minnesota law requires 

a five day wait for issuance of a marriage license longest waiting period demanded by 

any state in the U.S. 

SOUTH DAKOTA has no waiting period. Time required to get married in this Stats is 
only whatever time it takes to fill out the license form, have a blood sample taken and 
tested, and appear before a Pastor. For person divorced in Minnesota, the minimum time is 
cut from six months to 90 minutes as "gopher state" residents have a law that requires a 
divorced person to wait six months before remarrying. South Dakota has no restrictions. 

NORTH DAKOTA is another state providing many couples reason to eo to Sisseton for a 
marriage. A check reveals that our neighbor state to the north has no waiting period but 
they do require a blood test and physical. The groom or bride must also be a resident of 
the county where they purchase a license.

VIET NAM WAR CLAIMS FORMER CITY YOUTH 1 s LIFE 

The war in Viet Nam has claimed the life of a former Hankinson resident and one of 
the most outstanding students to have graduated from the Paradise, CA. , High School where 
his parents lived. 

Lt. Harold Eugene Knudsen was killed last Wednesday when his Phantom Jet F4C fighter 
bomber plane crashed near Phan Rang, where he was based. He was flying during an air strike 
at the time. According to the last letter his parents had received from him earlier this 
month, Knudsen had completed 140 missions since arriving in Viet Nam Mar. 10th this year. 

He had earned seven Air Medals and was due for promotion to the rank of Captain. He 
had an efficiency rating of 9, the highest which can be achieved. Knudsen was flying in a 
unit which supported the Tactical Air Command mission of providing firepower and other air 
support to the armed forces. In August he flew a support mission for the Marine Corps. 

The young flyer received his silver wings after graduating from flight training school 
at Laredo Base, TX. He was promoted to the rank of First Lietuenant in Dec. of 1964. 
He is the only Paradise youth to have entered the U. S. Air Force Academy in Colorado. While 
at the Academy he served as flight commander with the rank of cadet captain. He received 
his commission when he graduated from the academy in June of 1963. 

His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Harold Knudsen, who are well known in Hankinson, received 

word of their son's death at about 5 PM Wednesday when a representative of the Air Force 

fill) 



from Beal base arrived at their home in Paradise. 

Mrs. Knudsen was alone at the time and she said as soon as she saw the AF car drive 
up in front of the house, she had a premonition of the tragedy. 

Shortly after arriving in Viet Nam, Knudsen had written his parents, requesting that 
in the event of his death he be buried at the Air Force Academy. His wishes are to be car- 
ried out, according to his mother. 

Knudsen graduated from Paradise High School in 1959, a close contender for top scholar- 
ship honors. He was president and life member of the California Scholarship Federation. 
He participated in football and track and also played in the school band. 

While in high school he was active in Boy Scouts. As a member of Post 21 he received 
the Eagle award while still in flight training. He later received the Scout Silver Award. 
At the time he entered the Academy he was Chaplain of the Paradise Chapter of the Order of 
DeMolay. 

Knudsen was a native of Hankinson, born Jan. 30th, 1941 • He lived here until his 
family moved to Paradise in 1955. He was a member of Bethel Lutheran Church of Wahpeton. 
During his high school years he worked part-time in the Paradise Post mailing department. 

Besides his parents he is survived by two brothers, Charles of Chico, CA. , and Fred 
of Paradise. ********** September 22, 1966

ROSHOLT BOY DIES AFTER CAVE-IN 

A six year old boy lost his life, a 10 year old was hospitalized and a third youngster

a sand pit north of Rosholt on Aug. 1st. 

Little Leonard Keller, 6, son of Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Keller, Rosholt, suffocated when 
he was completely coverd by dirt from the landslide. His brother, Daniel, 10, was also 
coverd by dirt from the landslide with only a part of his shirt showing. A cousin, Ronald 

CH81 



Braun, son of Mr. and Mrs. Mervyn Braun, was partially covered but was able to work his 
way free. Two other youngsters also were playing with the group but were not hit by the

the aid of oxygen and taken to the hospital at Wheaton, where his condition was pronounced
