The voters will be confronted with an unusually long ballot from which to make their selections at the comincr election. This interest is due to the fact that a current of unrest has manifested itself among the vot- ers of the county, the taxation and appraisement questions being fore most at this time especially among the farmers. A feature of this primary will be the presence of women candidates on both republican and democratic tickets. Mrs. Lillian rrickett, democrat, of Marion, is announced as a candidate for the office of county treasurer, and Mrs. Cu'la Yayhinger, prominent W. C. T. U. woiker. is a candidate for state senator on the republican ticket. Fairmount w ill be especially interested inasmuch as two candidates for the same office will be in the run-nine from this place.

The center piece on the dining; table was a boquet of white hyacinths in a g;reen vase which added to the final artistre touch. Miss Wright was assisted by the pirls in her second class, Misses Faye Peirce, Ethel Simons and Elsie Swee ney serving the plates and Misses Zora Albertson, Mary Albertson and Treva Parker serving in the dining room. These girls were all attractively dressed in white middy suit. Seated at the table were MSsses Gladys Smith, Maxine Bannister, Edith Bevington, Laura Brown and Mary Seright. Luncheon was served in four courses and as each course was served Miss Wright pave her lec ture telling how it should be served, and how it should be eaten. The use of fork, knife, spoon, etc., the remov al of everything connected with the course and preparation for the serv ing of the following course, the girls efficiently illustrating these things as they were told. Altogether it was one of the most effective talks ever given at convocation and was witnessed by a large audience. The menu, which was prepared by the class, was served in four courses as follows: Tomato Bouillon with wafers and celery curls Mock Quail Hongroise Potatoes Creamed peas in timbale cases Cloverleaf Rolls Butter Apple Jelly Cucumber relish F.

Salad Cheese straws Pineapple Bavarian cream with An-gelfood Cake Cocoa Wafers PURDUE MAN EXPLAINS ADVANTAGE OF THIS METHOD OF KEEPING ACCOUNTS Start the Year With Inventory and Keep Accurate Record During Year Will Greatly Facilitate Making Out of the Annual Incomoe Tax Report by the Farmers. This is a good year for farmers to study the income tax law. In general, profits if any have been small and the sharp decrease in the value of livestock and crops tends to make them smaller than appears on the surface. There are two ways of reporting the farm income for income tax purposes allowed by the United States Treasury Department. The more common method is called the "cash receipts and disbursements" method. The other is the "accrual" method. The former is not a good or fair bass of accounting as it takes no account of inventories of farm property except an allowance for depreciation on buildings and machinery, according to E. C. Young, of the farm management department, of Purdue College of Agriculture. When the income tax law first became effective, it was found that the records of many farmers were not suited to income tax reporting. The simplest way out was to let the farmer report total sales and total expenses for the year. Many farmers have continued to report in this way j without studying to find out whether or not this is fair to themselves. As a matter of fact, the "cash" method becomes more complicated as time goes on, and each year a farmer finds himself more deeply involved than ' (Continued on Pasre Two) ! APPORTIC NMENTS FOR STATE DELEGATES Chairman of Republican and Democratic Committees Fix Number For Townships The chairmen of the Republican and Democratic county committees have announced the apportionment of delegates from Grant county to the state conventions of the two parties. The apportionment is made on the basis of one delegate to each 400 votes cast for the heads of the tickets at the last election. On this basis the county will be represented at the Republican state convention by 31 delegates apportioned to the townships as follows: Center, 13; Van Buren, Washington, Pleasant and Richland, 1 each; Mill, 3; Jefferson, 2; Fairmount, 3; Franklin, 3; Liberty, Green and Sims, 1 each. At the Democratic state convention Grant county will be represented by 20 delegates, apportioned as follows: Washington, 1; Van Buren, 1; Center, 8; Pleasant and Richland, 1; Mill, 2; Monroe, 1; Jefferson, 1; Fair-mount, 2; Liberty and Green, 1; Sims, 1; Franklin, 1; Union Traction Cuts Expenses Will Dispense With Double Shift of Operators at Local Station, Requiring Agent to "Live on Duty" The Union Traction company is inaugurating! some radical changes in continuance of the policy of retrenchment adopted several months ago. Notice has been received that the section crew, which has been stationed at Fairmount ever since the road was first in operation many years ago, will be dispensed with after April. Orders to this effect were received last week by section foreman Joseph Corn. The Summitville-Jonesboro section crews will be given an enlarged territory covering trackage heretofore in charge of the local crew. Another radical change which it is understood is under contemplation is the discontinuance of a double shift of operators at local stations. Instead of employing two men, one in charge of night and one on the day shift, residence quarters are to be provided at the station and only married men will be employed in the future. Future operators will be expected to live within the stations and be subject to call if needed at all hours of the night. l Fairmount Township Democratic Perfect Organization for the Campaign at Meeting Thursday Night B. B. Shively Candidate for Senator Coming Wednesday. Fairmount township Democrats opened their campaign Thursday night with a rousing meeting in the basement of the Fairmount State bank attended by some two hundred of the party workers of the town and township and an organization was perfected with the selection of precinct committeemen, members of the advisory board and delegates, to the state convention. The meeting was presided over by W. P. VanArsdall as chairman, with Mrs. L. D. Holliday, secretary-It was expected that at this meeting a candidate for township trustee would be selected, but nothing along this 1 ine was done. Prior to the meeting and for several days the name of W. P. VanArsdall, retiring postmaster, had been freely mentioned for this place, and it was thought that he would probably make the race. Mr. VanArsdall, however, before the Thursday night meeting made it known that he would not consider making the race for trustee. Then, a surprise was sprung at the meeting, when Mr. VanArsdall was named as the unanimous choice of the Democrats of Fairmount as the Democratic candidate before the primaries for the office of county clerk. Mr. VanArsdall indicated his willingness to make this race, and his formal announcement is expected to be made within a few days, as he will file for the nomination during the week, Friday being the last day for filing. Wlliiam Jones, district chairman, was the chief speaker of the evening, he devoting his remarks largely to a recital of the record of Woodrow Wilson and comparing it with the administration of Mr. Harding, Mr. Jones declaring! that time was bringing to Mr. Wilson credit which is his due. Referring to conditions in the Republican party, as viewed from the Democratic standpoint, Mr. Jones asserted that the outlook for Democratic success at the polls next November was exceedingly bright. Following Mr. Jones' talk the township organization was perfected with the selection of committeemen, ed-visory board and delegates as follows: Precinct Committeemen: (1) Lon Kimes, (2) John W. Smith, (3) Albert Morris, (4) Clyde Dean, (5) Basil Underwood. Advisory Board: Frank Kirkwood, John Bitner, William Curry, J. W. Monohan, T. J. Lewis, David Payne, Wick O. Leach. Delegates to State Convention: James Monohan, Col. Hipes, Mrs. Will Jones, Charles Hackney, Bobbie Weyler, Mrs. L. D. Holliday, Charles Ackerman. At adjournment it was announced that another meeting will be held on Wednesday night of this week at which time the Hon. Bernard B. Shively, democratic candidate for the nomination for U. S. Senator, will be present and be the chief speaker of the evening, although other prominent Democrats of the district will also be present. Ladies are invited and urged to attend this meeting. JUSTICE ISSUES A WRIT OF REPLIVIN. Squire C. D. Overman, who Thursday heard the evidence of a case sent him on a charge of venue from Mill township, decided that fourteen months is sufficient time for a creditor to await further payments of a $130 debt, and issued a writ of repli-vin, in favor of Fred Garthwaite of the Garthwaite Hardware company, and directed against Nathan Freeman. The evidence showed Freeman had purchased a victrola from Garthwaite for $150, one year ago last October on which payments to the extent of $20 had been made, and that fourteen months had elapsed since the last payment had been tendered, and Justice Overman thought little doubt existed that Garthwaite had been a patient creditor and . was entitled to regain possession of the instruments The case was tried Thursday, occupying the greater portion of the afternoon. in the M. E. church at Jonesboro April 27th and 28th, will be an important occasion. Fairmount township Sunday school workers are busy with plans for their part in the convention, and program for the two days' session will be announced when fully completed. O. S. Ellis, of Indianapolis, representing the Indiana Sunday School Association, was in Marion Wednesday conferring with Colver P. Ryan, county president, and Mary E. Hayes, county secretary, relative to details of the convention. The county officers have decided to have two full days convention, with morning, afternoon and nig,ht sessions on both days. Each Sunday school in the county will be urged to send at least four delegates to the convention, in order that each school may have representatives in four simultaneous divisional conferences, the administrative, adult, young people's and children's divisions. E. T. Albertson, general secretary of the Indiana Sunday school association; Wayne G. Miller, and Nellie C. Young, state superintendents of the young people's and children's departments respectively, will be among the speakers. John Adelberger, president of the .Mill township Sunday school association, is chairman of the program committee. Jonesboro is expecting all sections of Grant county to send representatives to the sessions in large numbers, and it will be made a big occasion. W. C. T. U.

The program as published in The News was carried out. Albert Hall, county superintendent, gave a talk on "The Bible in the Public Schools," in which he explained the reason why the bible was not taught in public schools, stating that it would be a splendid foundation in public schools if it could be taught to the satisfaction of all, but the growth of denominationalsim made this impossible. City superintendent Highly talked on the growing) menace of tobacco, of the increasing number of pupils, both boys and girls, who are forming the habit and of the necessity of work along this line. During the meeting the W. C T. U. pledged themselves to suport only those candidates in the political field who will guarantee to do everything possible towards law enforcement.

The next entertainment on the list for the closing weeks of the high school will be the presentation of the four-act comedy by the high school students in the auditorium on next Friday night, March 31.

When he married Harriet he also took under his roof his wife's aunt, Judith, and sister, Bessie. Aunt Judith feels she is quite a necessity to the household. Mr. Easyman wants his nephew to marry Drusila Norton, a millionaire's daughter, but Carew is in love with an actress, Desdemona Spencer. This is not known to any of the family. Miss Spencer will not marry Carew against his uncle's wishes. All the family except Mr. Easyman and Carew go to the theatre. Carew has planned to take Desdemona to a masquerade ball and she meets him at his home, as there was no one there. While Crew is out of the room Desdemona is left alone and Mr. Easy-man returns after a business trip. As it happens Mr. Easyman had become interested in the spirit world and was getting under the influence of the spirits; all this is known to Desdemona an! she plans to take the part of the ghost in order to get out of the mess she accidently got into. From the time she begins calling Mr. Easyman "My Lord " till the end of the play it is one continuous uproar. For Aunt Judith is determined to prove Mr. Easyman a villian. Mrs. Easyman believes her husband for awhile and then becomes influenced by her aunt. Bessie is a friend to her brother and also to Carew and Desdemona. Bessie is in love with Tom and after a few misunderstandings she becomes Mrs. Ashleigh. Michael is given the scare of his life by Desdemona and helps to make matters worse for his master.
