'Hoboes9 Go 900 Miles On Skiff A couple of seagoing "hoboes" landed in Louisville Friday. Walter Johnson and John Milliard, both 35, moored their homemade skiff, the "Hobo," at Municipal Boat Harbor after a 900 -mile journey from their homes in Buffalo, N.Y. Since leaving Buffalo September 12, they have traveled down the coast of Lake Erie, by truck across a section of Pennsylvania, and down the Allegheny and Ohio rivers. Their goal is to reach the coast of Florida in time for the hoboes' annual national convention at Tampa in March. Johnson, a boat builder, constructed the craft last summer when "business was bad." He met Milliard in a Buffalo bar and the two decided to make the trip together to "look for work along the way," according to Johnson. Still Champ Iowa's Tall-Corn Stalk Dwarfs Ohio's 14-Footer Nationalists' Guns . Drive Off Red Jets Taipeh, Formosa, Oct. 16 (JF) Chinese Nationalist antiaircraft batteries drove off two Chinese Communist MIG-15 jet fighters that flew over the Nationalist-held Tachen Islands some 200 miles north of here yesterday, the Government Information Office said today. Columbus, Ohio, Oct. 18 (Jt) The state of Iowa today retained its "tall-corn" title by a whopping margin over the state of Ohio. It was a just-for-fun affair, coinciding with the Ohio State-Iowa football game here today before more than 80,000 people. Iowa's Secretary of State Mel-vin D. Synhorst accepted the challenge of Ted W. Brown, Ohio's secretary, to the tall-corn contest. But Brown gave up easily today when the best he could muster was a 14 -foot stalk grown by a Columbus man. Iowa's winning entry was nearly twice that size measuring 26 feet 9 inches. Brown had suggested the contest take place at half time. But a statement released several hours before game time showed the judging had taken place long before the teams took the field. mm wn i miv 11 SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 17, 1934. 21 )pcn TI1 9 p.EM. oii Monday Evening! rtainsl 4th at CiithriA l. j&MZ:;: Stmront&cfay's moi beautiful, serviceable Bright &:m57 diXK ' ': IfWfMfQ- v.- HOBNAIL Dot f&V- I4vMv BEDSPREAD , U J fflh C sizes I , j , ' X J $&?2 ' ' : llMili $i V ; HATHAWAY AA 5 NAT.ON-WIDE M UfA & W fall -Cli . 4--" , i " 81x108 , DACRON 72x108 2.19 42x36 49c Fitted Twin 2.19 Fitted Full 2.39 Choose from a host of colors . . .
