FIRST FISH STORY OF THE SEASON The Ribelins While Motoring Across Country Catch First Big Fish of Season Here's the first big fish story of the season, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Ribelin, living on Route 2 out of Fairrount being the fishers, will vouch for the fact that the story is true. As Mr. and Mrs. Ribelin were driving to the home of a sister Sunday their road took them across a ditch at the Whitehouse school house south of Fairmount. The recent high waters having subsided, the water is very low in the ditch just at this time. However, in a puddle where the ditch crosses the road they noticed some- thing flashing in the sunlight and argued whether it might be a snake or a turtle. Investigation showed three large carp gaily splashing around in about a foot of water. With sticks they went fishing and soon landed the three fish, one weighing a pound and a half, one two and a half pounds and the third between five and six pounds. It is presumed the fish got into the ditch from a gravel pit not far distant during the recent high waters. Can you beat it? Next.

The buildings destroyed were the lunch and billiard room belonging to Col. Hamilton, David Malott's Grocery store, the building being owned by The Gleaners lodge of Sweetser and an empty building owned by George Stevens.

To Be Given In Auditorium Friday Night All the musical organizations of the high school will take part in a concert to be given Friday night of this week. There is yet a small deficit on the curtains recently purchased for the auditorium, and the young people, feeling that this concert can be put on at a very nominal cost for tickets, inasmuch as there will be very little expense attached in giving the production, have donated their service, time and talents. Music lovers are promised a rare treat Friday night as the program will consist of numbers by each pf the first, second and third orchestras, numbers by the boys club and by the girls club, the high school chorus, piano solos and the final number will be by the whole organization ensemble. The concert will be given under the direct supervision pf Miss Mary Sample, supervisor of music in Fairmount schools and needs no further word of praise than that. FAIRMOUNT BAND GOES TO MATTHEWS The Fairmount Band will go Matthews Thursday night. May to 4, where they will give a band concert ronststing of a varied program of classical, popular and patriotic numbers. Miss Lillian Stewart, violinst, of Alexandria, will accompany the band and furnish several numbers on the program. ation on tne rtepuDiican mu his opponent, Joseph A. Holloway, will be close. On the state ticket it is believed that Albert J. Beveridge, who is seeking to "come back" will poll a good vote in Grant county, although on the other hand there are those who predict that his friends will be disappointed. On the occasion of his recent appearance in Marion, where he spoke in Civic hall, his reception was not as enthusiastic as had been expected, it is claimed by the opposition, but nevertheless it is true he was greeted with a good-sized audience, Senator New did not visit Grant county, nor in fact has he made an extensive personal campaign of the state, his interests being largely in the hands of his friends and party workers, Mr. New devoting his time largely to his duties in the Senate in Washington. The outcome of the contest for senatorial nomination is being watched through ct the county with much interest, as the result of the "balloting tomorrow on this question will give a pretty good index pf how Indiana Republicans are satisfied with the achievements of the Harding ad ministration up to this time. It is predicted that the largest vo ovpr cast in a nnmarv election yln Grant county will be registe: morrow. DR. CARL LUCAS SPEAKS AT ACADEMY. Dr. Carl Lucas of Indianapolis, an alumni of Fairmount Academy, was in Fairmount Monday morning and gave a booster talk at chapel. Dr. Lucas spoke of the splendid work ac-complisher by the school and of the work it is now doing. The talk proving quite a stimulus to the students who heard him.
