Investigation of the ownership of certain patents and copyrights under which the Telbax Playing Card corporation of Fairmount, was to operate, was the principal event of the investigation of affairs of the Telbax concern, held Friday afternoon in the superior court. The Telbax corporation was put in the hands of a receiver recently, and since that time liens and claims against the property of the concern have taken up much of its property and machinery, Stockholders were depending on the . value ot copyrights and patents, wnicn they thought they had. to meet the corporation at Fairmount, asserted be- , fore the court when on the wtnss j staTut tnat ne never naa soia tne rair mount concern his patents, but had merely sold them the right to manu- fnftnro nndfr .his natents without cost.

Abandonment and failure to provide j ; j Wallop Marion Much Touted Chamber of Commerce Team Goes Down in Defeat on Local H. S. Floor in Fast Game In what local fans declared to be the best basket ball contest witnessed in Fairmount this season, the highly touted Marion Chamber of Commerce net five went down to defeat by a 40 to 21 score before the strong Fair-mount Independent team Friday night on the higih school gym floor. Fairmount showed Marion that Fairmount still can play basket ball and that it is not impossible to defeat Marion. Except for the first four minutes when Marion was leading Fairmount, they did not have a chance for a win, as the Fairmount crew had everything their own way, having the ball in their possesion three-fourths of the time. Marion was helpless against the strong attack of the locals who played a good, steady game throughout, never exerting their full strength to win. The Fairmount Independent team has just been recently organized and this was their firsts game. The team is made up of former high school and academy stars. For Fairmount, all played a good game, snowing some ciassy Dastvet ball. For Marion, Heiser and Bell were the best. The score at half time was 22 to 11 in favor of the locals. The Fairmount quintet is arranging grimes with other fast independent teams of the state such as the Hartford City A. A.'s, Ehvood Nash and Bluffton Phi Delts.

Regular Session Arranged as a Fare- j well Party to Miss Estella Jenkins With Special Program About twenty-five members were present at the meeting of the Business Girls Club which was held Friday evening in the club room over the Fairmount State Bank. Miss Estella Jenkins, who leaves Tuesday for California, is a member of the club and the party was arranged especially in her honor, and just prior to adjournment she was presented with a valuable gift by the club. Misses j Bertha Leming, Miss Vern Hardwick j and SMiss Bonnie Kimes were in charge of the party which was a most delightful affair. The valentine idea was carried out in the decorations, strings of red hearts being used profusely, while the tables were lighted with red candles and red crepe paper aided in making the scene quite festive. The supper was pot-luck and was served early, after which a short business session took place and then the evening was turned over to a merry time when games and contests were the order of the evening, Misses Maude Briles, Blanche Harshbarger and Hattie Monohan capturing the prizes. CREAMERY FIELDMAN'S SHORT COURSE FEB. 13-18. Plans are complete for the fourth annual dairy and creamery fieldman's short course to be held at Purdue university Feb. 13 to 18, and already a number of men connected with the dairy business of the state have enrolled. Eaeh creamery in Indiana is expected to have a representative at this course, which has been of great assistance to creamerymen who are trying to improve the quality of but ter, milk, and cream. The course of study this year lays special emphasis on methods to improve the quality of these products. In addition, however, those taking the work will be given some instruction in dairy catty judging, feeding and other problems of interest to the actual producer. .

After trouncing Swayzee 41 to 7, the f Academy basket ball five is all set for the fast Greentown H. S. five at the Academy gym on Wednesday night. In one of the early games of the season Greentown defeated the "Fighting Five" in a hard fought overtime game at Greentown and the Academy is out for revenge. This game was scheduled to be played on Friday night, the 10th, but has been moved up to Wednesday night the 8th, so as not to interfere with the Grant county tournament at the high school gym., in any way. Greentown has a strong aggregation this year, one that has been taking all comers and generally taking the long end of the score. In fact Greentown fans claim it to be the best five that ever represented Greentown high school and Greentown has turned out some fairly good teams in the past. Local fans will also get a chance to see the two Greentown mid get forwards, termed by sport experts as being the fastest pair of forwards in this section of the state. The Academy quintet should be in excellent shape for this battle and they are determined to make it their fourth straight victory. The last three victims have been Elwood, Wind fall and Swayzee. This game should also giive the district tournament dopsters a little more stuff, as Greentown will prob- ablv be one of the fives entered at Marion. In a curtain raiser for the evening jthe Academy freshmen will meet the Greentown second team. This game will start at 7:30 with the big game !at 8:30. , Coach Jones and his "Fighting Five" invaded S,vayzee Friday evening where they locked horns with the Swayzee high school net five and brought home the long end of the score with 41 to Swayzee's 7. The Fairmount Academy crew had every thing their own way except for the first five minutes when Swayzee tried to put up some opposition and for the first five minutes Fairmount was only able to connect with two baskets. After this the Academy bombarded the basket at will. When the Academy players started their offensive game they showed championship form by the way they worked the ball down the floor for short shots, followed by one of the Blue and White players dropping a neat one in from center. This kind of a game was kept up throughout and though Fairmount used numerous substitutes, Swayzee did not have a chance at any time during the fray. All of the Fairmount players showed up well with no special outstanding star as each man played his position in excellent form, both their defense and offense working in good style. "Tiny" Brewer, regular back guard, was not able to make the trip because of illness, but his place was well taken care of by Scott, who let Swayzee have only a few short shots at the basket. For Swayzee, M. Marshal played well. Lineup and summary: Academy, 41 Swayzee, 7 Cecil M. Marshal McCombs . Clark Forwards Rich Woods Scott Gallbreath Centers G.

Miller of Anderson are the men select- ed to officiate at the tourney. EUck&nd Gdkf Whip Warren and Greentown Saturday evening, Fairmount high school defeated Greentown high school in the Fairmount high school ym- 26 to 15. The game was the last game to be played on the local floor before the big Grant county tournament which will be held in the high school gym Friday and Saturday of this week. The game was noticeably slow at times, due much to the fact that the Black and Gold five had journeyed to Warren on Friday evening and having defeated Warren in a hard game by a 37 to 28 score, were not in good condition for a fast game. Another reason for the slowness of the game is attributed to the fact that Greentown played a strictly defensive game, never following up their shots. When the first half ended the score boards showed 8 to 8. At the beginning of the second period Fairmount came back determined -to win and added more speed and within the first few seconds broke the tie and from that time on there was no doubt as to the outcome. cently purchased the Royal theatre Those assisting Mrs. Dreyer on the here, removing from Valpariaso to entertainment committee were Mes-Fairmount, have just closed a deal dames Clyde Lewis, Hort Ribble, Vie-whereby they become owners of the tor Selby and Bert Kelley.
