In this contest Fair- j tnoTEt was the first to score and main- ! tailed from the verv start a lead that i increased greatlv as the game pro- : pressed. Within the first minute af-i ter the initial toss up Payr.e dropped it.' a free throw for the first marker. On the next play Hollingsworth dropped in a nifty field goal and Just a couple of minutes later added another before Gastors was able to connect. The visitors then rallied with a ecu rle from the field in rapid succession and it began to look as if the local . five would have a battle royal. How- ' ever, although Gaston displayed some surprising bursts cf speed and some clever plays nt this time, far.s soon began to i.' tice that this came only in streaks zr. fi ashes while the local five, working smoothly and with machine like precision, was scon well on the way toward victory. Both teams were somewhat handicapped by the extreme smoothr.ess of the floor, which had just been scrapped, sanded, stained, and polished, but had not yet been waxed, but this only occasionally de- i-sctPi frrm the eiciei'.v cf the r!av. When the pistol sounded'at the end of th rct half he ore tood 1 to 10 in favor of the locas. The Fairmount team started the second half with a rush that was r.ot to be stepped. The visitors were unable to break through the local defense for 9. single field goal until the last five minutes of this half when two were added. However, the Black aiM Gold combination worked the ball down the floor time and again with surprising speed and accuracy and , ' ' ! interested in working out the program fr the Fair and Dedication Festival.

The Matthews frst team earlier in the season won a , sjve victory over the JoiAesboro ream so local lans were predicting that the Fairmount seconds would do ' mighty well to hold the Matthews quintet to an even score. The first half cf the game was qnite even and hard fousrht with the locals holding little more than a bare margin until ' the last miiAite. The score for this half was Fairmount 14, Matthews, 9. After about the first five minutes of the second half the locals hit a stride that brought surprising results and soon left the visitors hopelessly bohind.

Clifton, ex-trustee of Center township, will probably be taken to the NorthenJ Indiana state prison at Michigan City by Sheriff Bert Fowler today. When arraigned before Judge J. Frank Charles in tne Grant circuit court last Thursday morning Clifton entered a plea of guilty to the charge of embezzlement of township funds, and was immediately sentenced by the court to serve from two to twenty-one yenrs in the penitentiary, to pay a fine of $500 and was disfranchised for a period of two years, his minimum sentence. When he appeared in court Clifton looked weary and worn, showing) the strain' under which he had been laboring. He was brought into the court room from the jail by Sheriff Fowler, and stood before the judge with his head bowed. When Deputy Clerk Heber Davis, started to read the indictment he was stopped by Harry Roberts, Clifton's attorney, who stated that the reading of the indictment was unnecessary, as Clifton was j familiar with its coi.'tents, as it had been read before. "Youi know the charge against you, that of embezzlement?" Judge Charles asked. Are you ready to enter a plea of guilty or not guilty?" "Guilty," replied Clifton iii a low tone but with unbroken voice. Judge Charles said it was a disagreeable duty for him to perform, and with no further comment, he pronounced the sentence. Clifton, with the sheriff, then left the court room. The investigation of the state board of accounts is still goingi on. Other charges may be brought against the ex.official ,f further defalcations are found, and it is desired to further press the matter. It is understood the shortage is in the thousands ard that the $1,500 covered in the affi davit is not more than one-fifth of the amount. However, it is impossible to secure any information on the subject, as the accountants will make no statement un'til their work is finished. The bond of Clifton is SS.000, and any amount in excess of that the township will lose. It is practically sure that the bond will not cover the full amouic of the shortage. ACADEMY QUINTET LOSES TO WARREN 'Fighting Quakers" defeated in Loosely Played Game By a Score of 20 to 16 The Academy net five was defeated at Warren Friday night in a loosely played contest by the score of 20 to 16. The Academy team showed a complete reversal of form from the good showing that they displayed against the strong Alumni team the week previous. Of the 20 points scored by Warren, half of them were made from free throws, only five field goals being registered against the Academy defense. Ten mei got into the game for Fairmount, all the substitutes getting a chance to show their worth and some displayed more basket ball ability than the regulars and no doubt there will be some surprising changes made for the Green town game at Greentowr next Friday night. The Academy, while defeated, outplayed their opponents throughout the entire game, but from the lack of experience and ability to hit the basket they were not able to roll up a sufficient number of points to overcome the lead that Warren was able to get at the start of the second half. The first half half ended 8 to 7 iri favor of Warren. The Annual Dinner of the W. F. ML S. of the M: E. church which was to have been held Nov. 22, the regular meeting day of the- society, has beer postponed until a week later, Tuesday, Nov. 29. This is due to the faci that number of War Mothers and their guests who met at the home of Mrs. Jabe Winslow on West Washington street Friday evening in observance of Armistice Day. Mrs. Winslow was assisted by Mrs. Kiah Winslow and Mrs. O. R. Scott. The Stars and Stripes formed the decorations in the differed rooms of the Winslow home, Old Glory with its suggestions being doubly dear to these "Mothers of Men." The luncheon was to have been pot-luck, but it bid fair to develop into a banquet, for it was a splendid meal that was served in the dining room. Each war mother responded at roll call with something apropriate to Armistice Day and Mrs. George Ricks responded with a songv the words and music being her own composition, while Mrs. Ed Hollingsworth gave an original memorial address. The meeting was a great success inasmuch as the members seem to have a strengthened bond of sympathy as each Armistice Day comes and goes. CONCERT PLAYERS GIVE FINE PROGRAM Next Number in Eastern Star Concert Course Highly Spoken of Where-ever They Appear The next number of the series of concerts being given under auspices of the Masons and Order of Eastern Star will be by the Chicago Coi&ert will Ho the zvcnnA nf the pHps flip vvU1 De tne second ot tne series, tne nrf hpirm- tVip Festival Orchpstra on nrst Demg me r esu ai urcnesira on the eveningi of Oct. 20, and this excellent company of musicians was greeted bv ar audience that well filled the high school auditorium, while the ex-; cellence of the program gave rich i r 4i, i j : i Fu ... K uini. iiic iiiffl. nuuiuci v i n i v Century Festival Series here Tuesday night in the auditorium before an audience which gave these artists sincere applause. The members had a pleasing appearance with an unaffect ed manner upon the stage, and won their hearers early. Their singing ability, ensemble, was above any visiting company heard here for man'y years, especially the operatic arias in the concert play. Negro camp meeting songts, ballads of long ago, and two comic songs were introduced. Their rendition of the "Sextette from Lucia," "La Paloma," and Cavalleria Rusticana" was excellent. But their corfcert play, "From Gypsyland," perhaps will be best re membered. Here the singing members of the company reappeared in nomadic costumes, and with the stage lights changing to a red glowing reflection against the decorative back ground, arAi the entire setting in one of Indiana's most beautiful theatres, they enacted their song story, now with gay nomadic abandon, now with intense appeal, and all with perfect piarfo accompaniment. The company came direct here from Greenfield, where, the Daily Reporter states, "they came, they sang, they conquered," and further adds, " raise the quality of the music which the young people are permitted to hear, it is said, and you go far toward setting them right on the road of life. The conditions as they are today will be greatly improved if all take thought of the type of little things which enter irto the daily life of the young. No one could have the high-class pro-pram of last evening and not gone away just a little more appreciative of the bigger things of life." ' The meeting of the Women's Home Missionary Society of the AT. E. church, which was to have been held last Thursday afternoon at the home of Mrs. Edith Bevington, was post- j 's being plai.ned for that date, both j afternoon and evening that is expect- ed to attract attention and interest of ; everyone in this locality as well as of manv recple from iA?arby communi- ties. lne entertainment for tne JJnd is , ... .v o . t t t-,. 10 oe .n tne naxure oi a nanesi r air .. .. . as well as a uecication restivai. it ! is to be a Thanksgiving celebration, a v.-..-.;.-i o -.r;ct,-0i o oi ; for sure fair with hot dogs, toy bal- loi.'s and all the other attendant joys, all wrapped up in the program for the one afternoon and evening.

The Vocational girls have been busy for the past sev eral weeks making many pretty ar ticles ranging from clever rag dolls to handkerchiefs and embroidered linens, ail well adapted to use as Christmas presents. This gives but a vague idea of the big. time that is beingi planned for this occasion. It will assuredly be something entirely different. It will be something new and worth while; and Wt will be an occasion when everyowe will want to be present and share in the good time. KIWANIS SENDS A MESSAGE TO HARDING.
