P.AYLOR EDUCATOR TO BE AT UA BAPTIST TOMC.HT Dr. Leonard Duce, dean of the graduate school of Baylor University, will be guest speaker at the 7:30 p.m. midweek service Wednesday at Upper Alton Baptist Church. The Waco, Tex., educator is on the Shurtleff College campus this week as a guest during the college's Religious Emphasis Week. HALLOWKEN PRANKS KPN TO EGG TOSSING Halloween pranksters were out in some force Tuesday night and succeeded in causing a scramble among victims and authorities to apprehend them. The scramble was apt because, for the most part, the pranksters used eftgs to express the seasonal spirit. Wendell Sitze, 2736 Salu St., reported his automobile, parked in front of his home, was splattered with eggs. They were scrambled against the seat and heater. A woman, who wished to remain anonymous even to police, reported that her car had been pelted with eggs as she drove in the 2600-hlock of Salu. N. A. Windsor, 1824 Main St., reported that eggs were tossed against an upstairs window and on the front porch. Only deviation from this high- priced vandalism was the finding by polici of a street sign which appaiently had been removed from Washington avenue at Donald where it marked the curve. The sign was found in the 1200-biock of Washington. REPORTS INDECENT EXPOSURE INCIDENT A mother residing on Main street reported to police an incident of indecent exposure with her 15-year-old daughter as the victim. The gi'-l reported that the driver pulled a car onto the crosswalk at Benbow and Washington avenues Tuesday afternoon and opened the car door. The act followed. The girl attempted to get a license number but only got a few digits. Police have a description of the car and are seeking it. OMAR THE MAP MAKER SENDS COPS A-F1 YIN«J A precise resident sent a map to the police department which he thought the best way to report the crime of the abandoned refrigerator. The carefully drawn map showed the area of the College avenue rail station and north. There were exact, dots showing the path which the police should take to find the refrigerator. The reason this fellow was disturbed was that the refrigerator still had the doors intact. This is a violation of an ordinance which was drawn to prevent children from locking them- snrlves inside the things. The map maker placed the offending appliance as being behind a shed in the rear of a house. Without a ruffle to their dignity the police *ook the map and tracked down the spot which everybody assumes was marked by "X." There was no refrigerator. It is likely that the people who* owned the thing had it carted away. It would get anybody su- spicious to see a man standing in the alley drawing a detailed map. It is a wonder half the neighborhood, not knowing what was Up, -"'dn't leave town until the heat was off. UA HISTORIANS UP TO BAT FOR GRID GAME The unofficial Upper Alton Historical Society hacn't had a tidbit to chew on for several months sr> this item about the football gamp of 60 years ago should cause an opening of sleepy eyes. A clipping from a Springfield paper name the office the other day carrying a reprint of a game between the Springfield YMCA and "Shurtlefl College of Upper Alton" on Oct. 17. 18%. Shurtletf lost 4-0, which, It is assumed, meant the YMCA scored one touchdown. That would be of little importance to the historians. What would be, though, is a list, of names of Alton and Upper Alton people who saw the game played at Springfield. They included: Misses Phoebe Holden.Louise Pratt, Nora Breiter, Anna Goodman, Lilly Coulter, Louise -.vempen, Gay Day, Eunice Major, Lola Brasher and Birdie Duncan. Dr. H. E. Lemen of Upper Alton al=o was there to cheer the boys on. That's enough to get the historical society checking and comparing notes. In e few days it will be learned that Miss So- And-So could not have been at the game because it seems that was the day she attended a sewing bee at the Main Street Methodist Church. But, if that isn't enough to get things going, here is the lineup of the Shurtleff team for the game: N. L. Duke, center; E. Barnes, right guard; L. A. Starkweather, left guard; II. Pelefesh, right tackle; D. C. Pogue, left tackle: C. C. Dbcon, end; A. J. Hoag, end; U. H. Jones, halfback; C. C. Lawton, halfback; C. Swain, fullback; and L. Taylor, quarterback arid captain. That will never get through without raising issues. Starkweather, for instance, was really the right guard. The histor- ians may contend that nobody named Pelefesh ever played for Shurtleff before World War I. There might have been one who played after the war, because it «:eems there was a fire in a house icar the college. They will be sure a student: named Pele- fesh carried three buckets of water to douse the blaze before he eollnpsrd from the cold, it was five degrees lielow zero that morning and it had snowed from 7 a.m. until noon with a vigorous wind blowing out of the northwest to make things further unbearable. Go to it. RESIDENT ATTENDS CHICAGO MEETING Mrs. Jpanne Mac-Duff, 3100 Leveret! AVP., attended the National Home Demonstration Aeents Association a t Hotel Sherman in Chicago.
