PARTY HAS NARROW ESCAPE Car With Tree Women and Ten Children Rolls Down a Ten Foot Embankment Turning Over Mrs. Fred G. Kimes of Marion, daughter of Mrs. Addie Winslow of Fairmount, had a narrow escape from death in an automobile accident in Marion last Thursday, when a big touring car in which she with Mrs. N. B. Putman of Defiance, Ohio, and Mrs. Arthur Putman, with ten small children were riding, rolled down a ten foot embankment near the junction of the Montpelier pike and the tracks of the Marion, Bluffton & Eastern traction line, just east of Marion. Ths car landed upside down pining the thirteen occupants underneath. No serious injuries resu'teJ, but all members "f the party were cut and bruised. The windshield of the car was shattered, the broken glass inflicting pa-.nful cuts on thej victims of the accuent. The car was being driven by Mrs. N. B. Putman and the party was returning from a picnic at Patherola park. The car had just climbed the steep incine leading up to the Montpelier pike, when at the top of the ' " First Grand Prize Ford Sedan Car, MISS MAUD KIMBROUGH.

A squad of experts will visit every state in the Union, settling all com- plaints of ex-soldiers, who feel they are entitled to training, compensation, bonus, or any other claims that they think they should have. "It means that the ex-soldier is going to get a square deal." says Miss Baker. "'It means that they will now be given the opportunity to get federal attention first hand. We want every ex-soldier in the county to know about it. Furthermore, we want every ex-soldier in the county to take advantage of it. Now is the time to got an adjustment This is not a R d Cross project. We are simply the agents of the move-meet in the county." The squads are representatives of the Veterans Bureau, which has resulted from the consolidation of the Federal Board and the Bureau of War Risk Insurance. Th?y will come to Indianapolis some time next month. If it is found impossible to be in Marion, men who have complaints to make will be sent to Indianapolis to have their claims adjusted, all expenses paid. The personnel of the squad will be: a doctor for examinations, a representative of the Veterans' Bureau, an expert from the Vocational Training department, an American Legion representative, and a Red Cross representative. With this complete personnel they can take care of any claims, regardless of their nature. They have complete power to make permanent and legal adjustments. "I do not know the date of their visit to Indiana," she said. "We hope to have the squad here to interview the" Grant county boys within two months. We cannot promise it, however. We have been asked to prepare the way for the squad and have al ready undertaken the tremendous job cf getting a line on the number and ; ) ' Make Up of Faculty For Coming Year With Prof. Purviance at the Miss Sibyl Kramme, music, French - . - - 1 and Latin.

Promptly at 7 o'clock the local Kiwanians and their guests sat down to tables; where a most appetizing and delicious dinner was served by the ladies of the Eastern Star chapter, after which the evening's flow of oratory and fun started and I went merrily until 10 o'clock, after which a business session of the officers ! and committee chairmen of the local 1 club was held, and plans made for j the future activities of the new clnb.

One of the chief features of the evening, however, was the "Muncie ministeral delegation," introduced to the diners by Earl Hobbs as Muncie's "Mutt and Jeff." Rev, Fisher is so lengthy that his intimate friends are priviledged to call him "Slim," and who, when he rises from his chair keeps going up until one begins to wonder if he'll ever stop "unwinding," while Rev. Eddie Thomas is really short. Both are excellent sineers as well as premier humorists, and they delighted their auditors with their singing and kept them in a roar of laughter with their rich, rare humor. Attorney Charles Parker presided as toastmaster introducing the speakers of the evening with sallies of wit that called forth the best there was in the speaker introduced. Incidently during the evening Carl Houston, of the Marion Leader-Tribune, was fined for wearing a shirt so loud that it actually "roared," while Lewis De-Wolf was soaked with a fine for trying to make the same speech twice. At the business meeting following the social session it was decided to hold the regular weekly meetings of the club on Wednesday evenings, beginning promptly at 6:30 and ending just as promptly at 7:30, the first meeting to be held on Wednesday evening of this week, place to be announced by the committee later. The" date for the institution of the new club will be fixed at an early date, and arrangements made for the entertainment of large delegations of Ki- wanians from all of the surrounding- cities. CONDITION IS SERIOUS FROM BLOOD POISONING. Wesley Lewis, son of Wm. A. Lewi?, living southeast of town, was taken to the Grant county hospital Thursday evening, suffering with blood poison ing, and his condition is regarded as seriou.-. The young, man mashed his foot neaily six weeks ago, one toe bj. ing almost severed. It was thoueht that the wound was healing nicely until last Sunday when blood poisoning developed. year. The fact that the expense of elections, totaling $27,659.50 were not included in last year's estimate ac- counts for tha additional amount. If this were removed a commendable de- crease would be evident. The formulating budget will be ap- proved and revised at the next ses- sion Gf the county council to be held September 6. Any changes which are to be made in the annroDriations for next vear will be made at this! time. Permanent appropriations will be taken care cf at the September meeting. An increase on a comparatively small item of expense is found in the salary and maintainanee of the coun-; ty attendance officer Last year the amount totaled approximately $1,200.!, This year the amount jumps to $2,- oou' Anis ,ncrea5ea TOSC wm snuw m this year's budget.

Th-e Snider factory made the first run of the season Thursday, several hundred bushels of tomatoes being used up.
