(Columbus, Ind., Republican) A discussion of the compensation law as it affects farmers was made this morning by Attorney John Ry-nerson before a meeting, of the directors of the Bartholomew county farm bureau. If there is a single farmer in this county who has not a full understanding of this law he should inform himself at once, was probably the main idea that Mr. Rvnerson left with the members.

Mr. Hogston took a stand in the and legislature against commissions big appropriations. His idea is that the way to reduce taxes is to cut ' down expenses. He believes that : most of our Boards and Commissions j are not only expensive but actually , j detrimental to the public ,and should be abolished. He was one of the leaders in the fight to abolish the : Public Utilities Commission and is j the only member of the Senate who has ever introduced a bill to abolish5 it. He is making his campaign pledgr j ed to the curtailment of Boards and Commissions and the reduction of ex- , penses and taxes. j 1 Mr. Hogston secured the enactment : of several laws of benefit to the pub- j lie, among which are the law making it an offense to bribe a public official, jand the law providing for the substi- to 10.

Mr. Caskey found the egg, and thinking it intended to be mailed, failed to notice it bore no 1 101st ' , ' ' , i WILL TAKE OVER GROUND AT HENLEY AVENUE AND MAIN STREET FOR PURPOSE Propose a "Gold Star" Park, in Honor of the Seven Boys and One Young Woman From Fairmount Township Who Made the Supreme Sacrifice in the World War. Through the activities and efforts of the local chapter of War Mothers Fairmount is to have a park that will be an ornament and a credit to the city. Although it will be but a small park it will be one that will not only he one to be admired, but will have around it cherished memories that will live as long as time itself. The War Mothers on Monday night, at the regular meeting of the council, presented a request that they be granted the privilege of taking over for beautification the small triangular strip of ground at Henley avenue and Main street and transforming it into a "Gold Star" park, a memorial to the Fairmount township boys, and the one Red Cross young woman who made the supreme sacrifice in the World War. This permission was granted by the council, and the War Mothers have made arrangements with Byron Traster for the work to be done. It is the purpose of the War Mothers, through the nearest living relative of the dead soldier to learn what was his favorite tree, and to then plant in the park a tree of that variety as a living monument to the memory of each of the seven boys and to the young woman, each tree to be designated by the name of the one in whose honor it is planted. It is Mr. Traster's purpose to secure of each variety the largest tree of its kind that can be transplanted, and to arrange them symetrically in the park, so that the plot of ground, will be a real place of beauty. In addition to the- trees the park will be otherwise beautified, and flowers will be kept blooming throughout the season, so that with the flowers, the rest benches to bp ultimately provided and the shade of the trees the park will be an attraction alike to the resident of Fairmount as well as to the stranger passing through. MRS. PARRILL HOSTESS TO W. F. M. OF M. E. CHURCH. Mrs. Will Parrill will be hostess for the Women's Foreign Missionary Society of the M. E. church on Tuesday afternoon at her home on Henley avenue, with Miss Lucia Parrill, Mrs. Tobin, Mrs. Pearson and Mrs. Day assistant hostesses.

The hostesses request that each member bring The Missionary Friend as they will be needed for the Mystery Box questions. This is also the day for payment of dues and it is urged that the full membership turn out for this meeting. LEGION AUXILIARY GIVES COLONIAL TEA. Mrs. Blanche Horine was in Sum-mitville Tuesday afternoon and evening. Mrs. Horine was a guest at a colonial tea given by the American Legion Auxiliary Tuesday afternoon at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Sherman Love, and also attended the entertainment given by the American Legion Auxiliary in the evening at the Sum-mitville high school. The program consisted of music by the M. E. church orchestra and community songs by the congregation directed by Mrs. Mullins of the Summitville high school, followed by a patriotic address by Frank McHale of Logan-sport. The program was closed by an interesting moving picture, "Just in Time." WORE PLASTER CAST FOR ELEVEN WEEKS. Milton Powers returned this week to the Ann Arbor, Michigan, hospital to have a plaster of paris cast re- moved, which has encased the lower portion of his body for the past eleven weeks, following the sixth operation to which he has submitted during an interval of five years for the relic of a broken hip bone. He has reason to believe the last trip to the table will be a success. WILL MEET ACADEMY'S "FIGHT FIVE" ON LOCAL FLOOR FRIDAY NIGHT Dip Croud of Windfall Rooters Com- in? With Their Team Determined to Help Their Quintet Take Revenue for Defeat Administered by Quakers Early in Season. Fairmount basket ball fans will r.ave their last chance of seeing: a basket ball contest here this season when the strong umcuaii mgn scnooi rive stacks up against tne Acaaemy , quintet on the Academy floor Friday night. While this is the last game on the schedule it is not least, as Windfall is represented by an exceedingly strong quintet this year, the team being entirely made up of veter- an piayers. Windfall has been taking all com ers this year and has taken a number of real teams into camp. During the riidile of the season the Academy team administered to them a defeat on their own floor by a three point margin. The Windfall team, coach and fans declare that they were entirely off form that evening and not playing; up to standard. Whether they were off form or playinsr their usual game or which is the better team will be shown Friday night when these two fives meet. Both teams should be in good condition for this tarn? a? reports from Windfall sate that they are in prime condition and are coming over with a determination of taking horn? all honors. A large crowd of Windfall rooters is planning to accompany the team. Windfall is expected tr make a goo showing in the district tournament at Kckomo r.ext week as they have th? same team at tho present that went to the finals in the sa.r.e district last year. This contest should put the Academy team in excellent shape f.-r the district tournament to be held at iMarion next week. Windfall is proKVWy a? strong a five as there is in the Marian district. Earlier in the season when Mani was their bet they were only able to defeat Windfall by five points in the last few minute? of p'ay cr! Civic hall Poor. Since this time Marion ha hit a slump and it is not the same team it once was. If the Aoad-emv can defeat a tt-an of Windfall's calibre it should put their chances of winning the tournament far above par. Edwards, the Academy's flashy for- ward, is back in the game after a short illness and his presence should materially strengthen the team. While neither lineup is definitely known, as there may be some surprising changes made in both quintets, the following is the probable lineup: Academv McCombs, Cecil, Edwards, forwards; Rich, Lewis, center; Scott, Woods, Brewer, guards. Windfall Thomas, Small, forwards; Pugh, cen-; tor- Krai! Warren, iruards. : A fast curtain raiser is planned for the evenine-, when the second teams of , both schools meet at 7:30 o'clock, This should be a real contest as both of these teams are evenly matched, -t-v a li-nr, ty v. o-nrno -; 11 probablv be Hook. .Smith, Woods, Harshbarger, Gamer, Ratliff, Broo shire and Colbert. CAMPAIGNING STATE FOR ACADEMY FUNDS. On Monday of this week. Rev. Aaron Napier, field secretary of Fairmount academy, who has been widuetinj? a two weeks revival at the academr during chapel period, making an address to the student body each morning and during the re- mainder of the day holding personal counsel with the students, started on ".r a systematic campaign of all the In diana vearlv meetings and points in other states in the interest of Fair-mount academy. He will begin this work in Indiana and in a short time work in other states. ROBERT HASTINGS FARM SOLD BY TRUSTEES.
