BATTERY.OPENS CAMPAIGN TO SIGN RECRUITS Artillery Units Seeking! 60 Young Men for Serv-i ice in Guard. j As a campaign to enlist 60 re-, emits la Davenport units of the: lSDth field artillery opened Mon- day, three young men reported f or j enlistment at the armory on Brady! street, Capt. L. A. Thomussoii, j commanding officer of regimental headquarters battery reported Tuesday.- Herman G. Gurgel, Harry E. Petersen and Kenneth Delleer are tbo men who enlisted. ('apt. M. J. Nolan, commanding officer of U battery who has been appointed recruiting officer for Davenport units, will be stationed at Nolan's Office Supply store at, ?,10 Harrison street for several days to confer with those Intesest-ed in joining the local military units. Officers of these units point, out that there are several advantages In joining the local group and one of these is higher pay for the first three months of service. Chances for promotion are considered good since many of the present noncommissioned officers, who are heads of families, are resigning. Another advantage cited is that men who Join now will serve with others from their borne city rather than with strangers. Among promotions announced recently were those of Sgt. A. Crlsa-man to second lieutenant. Second Lieut. A. Wieck 1o first lieutenant and Major K. Falk to lieutenant colonel. Fifth Columnists? Bettendorf residents were wondering Tuesday whether fifth columnists attempted to steal the modern 4.7 American field gun on the city hall lawn, altho a majority believed that pranksters moved the big artillery piece off its concrete base. At any rate the cannon was moved but not very far. It will take a number of husky men to get it back in place. NEED OF POOR FUNDING BOND ISSUESLIGHT For First Time in Nine Years Revenues Appear Adequate. For the first time in nine years, it appeared Tuesday that Scott county may find it unnecessary to issue funding bonds to redeem poor relief warrants exceeding the revenue from the regular poor levy and emergency levy, j The improvement m. the county's; financial status in this respect, it i was pointed out is due to two : things, an increase in 1910 of the, poor levy from one-and-one-half to j three mills and a drop in the re- j lief load because of more employ- j ment. i This latter fart was highlighted j Tuesday with the filing of the No-! vember report of the overseer of j the poor showing a case load of j 769 for the month just past as compared with 1,156 in November of; 1939. The rase load figure was also only three higher than Octo-j ber, 194Q, indicating that the usual , downward seasonal trend of unemployment has been reversed. j EXPENSE DOWN. Expenditures for November, 1940, were $23,453.17. of which the county paid the entire amotint, as compared with $29,753 in 'November. 1939, when the state paid about $3,000. The relief cost in October, 1940, was S22.941.0S. The increase between October and November this year is largely accounted for by rreatef fuel and clothing needs. After a lapse of etehf years after 1924. the county was forced to issue lis first poor funding bonds in 1932 when the depression hit. Since that lime there have been issues once or twice a year to re deem warranls. Some bonds have been redeemed In intervening years but the tolal now stands at $1,- 133.000. This figure, outside of primary toM bonds which have been assumed by the hiehway com mission, represents a large per centage of the county s tolal bonded debt, the current limit for which would be about $5,000,000. LIMIT TRANSFER. Because it is impossible to determine now whether money remaining In the poor and emergency funds will be ample to meet poor relief costs for the remainder of the year, supervisors Tuesday voted to transfer but $13,000 from the emergency to the secondary road maintenance fund Instead of $25,000 as originally sought. They hav been given authority by the state comptroller to transfer part of the $25,000 but he advised them to"walt until the end of the year to make the full transfer. At that time the condition of the poor fund will be known and if it is insufficient relief needs will have the first call on emergency fund balances. In any event, it is not expected that any funding bond issue ot Im portance will be necessary. The first railroad train for San Francisco left Omaha la September ol 1870, Contributions to Jaycee Santa Fund Climb to $616.40 New contributions reported Monday to the Junior Chamber of Commerce Christmas fund boosted the total to $816.40.

Without Drink Too Long, Story Of Drunk Driver John Mathes, 45, pleaded guilty before District Judge W. W.
