At the annual meeting Of the Fall-view Country club Friday evening members toted to slash does deeply, and created a new brack of players. The dues under the new rut* ffifi * • • Town memberships, $?.50 (formerly $16). Out of tdwii memberships, $6 (formerly 1160). Tennis Club memberships, $8 (formerly $6. This type of membership permits play Oh the tennis courts' only, while full membership has both golf and tennis privileges). Student membership, $3. This is the new bracket of membership and is for high school of col* lege students whose time of play will be limited. Electing officers, the members voted the following into office: Clifford A. Boyer, president, Bruce Boehner, vice president Irving L. Donner, secretary and treasurer. An enthusiastic golfer and able worker, Mr. Boyer is expected to direct the club through the com* ing difficult year on the lowered financial scale. Members at the meeting believed that enough new members could be obtained by lowering the dues to offset the decrease in per member income. Also planned were methods whereby members could assist with the work of upkeep on the course and tennis courts and thus cut operating expenses. As the course is already in excellent shape the members believed they could keep it that way this sea- OuerMciltttrn High School This is the time of the yeat that war cloud* start hovering over the gefteftlly setefce eai« ot Malvern high sebTOl. Reason lot these efotrffs is the traditional Junior and Senior class distinction of colots. go tar the Senlofs hate been victorious, hating been the first to hoist their colors oft the Sacred Water tower which fot many years has received the brunt of attacks front the various classes. Friday morning the populace of the town of Malvern arose to view the Senior colors floating serenely from the highest peak of the tower. This flippancy ot the Seniors resulted, almost, in a pitched "battle between the two classes. This clash did-not materialize because the main participant, one Arthur Armstrong, keeper of the flftgt was detained after school for & special session designated by a decree set forth by the high school principal. Darwin Right? This scaling ot the water tower seems to be a great sport for the younger generation that is spring' ing up. (It might be the monkey instinct manifesting itself), The Seniors' colors were relieved from duty Friday noon when a band of Juniors proceeded to pull them down. The flag, however, was recovered without bloodshed. Both classes maintain a system of spies among the ?unt with a very of effort. • reasonable lower classmen which kcten* them informed *s to the action* taken by the others. As with all wars, great «*- pense has been involved tor the main combatants. We hate it on reliable rumor that one senlof was forced to make An outlay of 18e for his class colors, thus establishing himself as titular head of the tipper group. The nambef of effectives for each side has been considerably lessened by faculty disciplinary measures which forces a number of them to remain after school each evening as penalty for past offenses. May t»*y Off Debt Assuming that the towfl au* thorltles could impose a penalty ofl the sealers of the tower— and Night Marshall lake Frailer has designated such act as a misdemeanor — and collect name from the two upper classes, the municipal debt would be cut by an important figure as the entire student body is expected to support the war financially and would no doubt dig up their tin cans of hoarded money for the purpose. Hostilities were brought to an abrupt halt Monday when an armistice was declared and Sup't E. C, Kincatd arranged a peace conference in which all participants of the war were represented. Thus closed another chapter In the M. H. 8. class fights history.

Bitch Make Annual Arrival of spftng was cl«ehed| the past week In this community When residents noticed the arrival of many birds who make their appearane* each year at about the same time. A family of martins arrrived to again take up their summer residence In their house on the R. L. Hale lawn, chatting together almably. They at once began preparations for settlement In their home. Others have been arriving regularly. The State Fish and Game department sends out the following concerning iowa birds: "touring the first few days of April. If the weather Is good, several ot our feathered friends will put In their appearance. They will be returning from the South where they have spent the winter in comfort. Some of the birds that will be returning about this time are the purple Finch, Sparrow Hawk, Vesper Sparfow, Grebe, Kingfisher, Blue Heron, Coot, Field Sparrow, Woodcock, Yellow Bellied Sap-sucker, Flickers, Teal and other ducks, "About the middle of April one can expect to see sttch birds as the tree-Swallow. Winter Wren, Gold Finch. Red-Crowned Kinglet, Barn Swallow, Sandpiper, and Water-Thrush. If owe will make a study of the history of many of these birds and learn where they spend their winters, It Will be interesting to know how far these birds fiy each spring to make their homes among your yards and gardens. "Many of the birds named above can be encouraged to make their homes near us where they will delight us with their songs and their bright plumage. This can be done by building homes for them and giving them food and water. Keating materials should be scattered about on the bushes, such as cotton, short pieces of thread or string. It behooves every one to make the birds' homes with us as comfortable as possible for they come many miles to nest and raise their young. More than one reason can be given for wanting them near our homes but the best reason that can be given is we like to have them around." Council GeU Not So Cheerful Little Earful an Monday Pcmdet Financial Viciiii* hides of New Deal at Regular Meeting Cox Grocery Goes to New Location Stock and equipment of the Cox Grocery were loaded up early Monday morning, carried three doors north to the Allan Reed building and re-installed.
