As far as records go, Monmouth's four straight wins look far more impressive than that of Canton which has won only one in four starts.

Next they played another of the best of Illinois prep schools in Pekin and lost 51 to 0. Last week they took another shellacking from Peoria Woodruff, which is said to be the best club in Peoria. Friday they go against the Zip pers who have had a far easier schedule. Monmouth won 6-0 from Geneseo in .their opener; by the same score over Abingdon; 35-0 over Carthage; and last week defeated Macomb 19-6. Last week was the first time the Zipper goal line has been crossed this season They have scored 66 points to their opponents' 6. Bob McKee, Zipper end, is the leading scorer of the club with 22 tallies for the four games. Dick Wood, fullback, trails him with 18. Jerry McBride, quarterback, has thrown four touchdown passes. Any of the Monmouth backs including McBride can pick up yards on the ground. Coach "Stavie" Stavenhagen wants to win this one to make his first Homecoming game at Monmouth a successful one, but he realizes better than anyone else that his club is meeting a team that has been up against the cream of the Illinois prep grid circle.

Drayson served as chief deputy under Sheriff Twomey until Feb. 1 of this year. Three candidates were interviewed by the board, Drayson, former sheriff from 1946 to 1950; Harley Worden, first deputy in the sheriff 's office, and Cleo Smith, former police chief and fire mar-, shal of Marquette Heights, now employed at the Iowa Ordnance Plant in Burlington. First ballot gave Drayson 7 votes, Worden 6, and Smith 1. With the low man eliminated Drayson secured 8 votes with 0 for Worden on the second ballot. Four supervisors were absent from the special meeting. Since February, at which time Worden was named chief deputy, Drayson has been wcighmaster at the Monmouth Stone Co.
