On Account of Having to Attend Court, Clerk Will Maintain Old Hours. For the first time in the memory of many persons Tipton county offices in the courthouse will remain open at the noon hour, if a movement now on foot is carried out. Saturday the change had been agreed to by the auditor, assessor, recorder and treasurer but the clerk on account of having but one deputy and at times being compelled to be in the court room up to noon and also up to 5:00 o'clock in the evening announced he would follow the same old schedule of closing his office at noon. The matter of closing offices at noon, had been called to attention of several of the officials many times, by farmers and others who can conveniently leave their work for a few minutes at the noon hour to come into Tipton to pay taxes, have a deed put on record or attend to some matter with one of the county offices. Coming and finding the office closed they have been compelled to wait until one o'clock or return without having accomplished what they intended. Each office has a deputy and some one, either the officer or the deputy wijl be in the office all of the noon hour. The requirement is to keep offices open eight hours and with the offices open at noon they will close at 4:00 instead of 5:00 and it is believed the change will be found to be a convenient one for the public. It will give the custodian more opportunity to get the offices in condition after the day's business and in many ways will be a convenience to the pub- day, June 7th and from that week '' c on the same two days of each week will be for patrons' shows. The group then adjourned to the Ritz treater where they witnessed the show, "The Case of the Howl-!™ 80 " 1 ^ in . T |^! l .J s . lnAC ! ud ??,_^ ing Dag,"; as guests of the juniors.

Recent Decision of. Supreme Court Regarding Women on Juries Scanned. MAY CHANGE METHOD List of Over Sixty Applicants Will Take Examination if All Appear. HELD HERE MAY 25TH The fact that since the organization of Tipton county in IS-14 there have been ino names of women drawn for iiury service has | established a precedent which is hard to break, but there are indications that it may be broken and soon. | All this has been brought about by a recent reversal of a case by the Indiana supreme court, which in commenting oh the fact that the jury commissioners drew only names of male taxpayers in preparing their list, said: "Jury commissioners haVe no power to exclude from juryj service, a class of citizens whichl the legislature has included among those eligible. That the qualification of jurors is a matter of legislative control and that women are eligible ;as jurors upon the I same basis as men is- settled . . . and a jury not organized in accordance with Leroy Plake, secretary of the local civil service commission, informed The Trobune Saturday that the. list of applicants to take the position for carrier at the post office In Tipton, was one ot tlu largest since he has been secretary of the local board. Mr. jl'lake himself has handed out 53! applications! and he understands! other employes of the Tipton po'stoffice have handed out several, and that ten or twelve made direct application to Washington] D.

In this county j the jury com- | missioners meet the first of each year and select ft-om the list jof taxpayers persons] whose names are printed on slips and placed into what is known as the jury box. From this box one week prior jto the opening of each term of court the commissioners meet with the light at 'the splendid party arranged by Juniors under the able leadership of Miss Moore. and all agreed that it was one of ' .. • •!..&..»•_» receptions ever glv- r class for a group entertaining grateful to I mem- lodge e|nd of Germany Is to Raise Another Forced Loan on Insurance* Companies, Workers Berlin, May 18; — -A new government loan to consolidate at least -part of the vast short-term Indebtedness created by -the: government's employment - and rearmament programs and relieve the Relchsbank ot its top-heavy load of "labor creation : bills" is { now in preparation.

Their reason for not doing so IB that.it has been a recognized custom for years. to select only names of men to be placed in the Jury box, from which jto draw Jurors. j In the case on which the Indiana supreme cou: t reversed a decision of the low sr court, the reversal was on tistimony of the Jury commission* rs that they eluded names of women from Jwr. *«• I fill a Vacancy on Route 2, caused by the' retirement of W.
