When personal combat smoldered* then flamed, Mr. Ktncald called male students into conference, With the following results: Not the one flag of the senior class, nor the two flags ot the junior and senior classes would be permitted to fly from the staff at the top ot the water tower, but three flags would be uged. Up the tig-sagging girder llnkg of the northwest support ot the water tower scurried high school boys carrying three flags, Senior and junior class flags were fastened on two short staffs sprouting outward from the base of a central staff which shot several feet higher. On this waB placed the brilliant orange and black flag of the high school.

Donner was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs, Albert Attending town council meeting will nigh became a habit tot the members thereof last week when Malvern's municipal governing tody assembled three times for a new 1988 record. Met' eutean problems were met and solved, partly at least, by their efforts. Following the tegular meeting Monday evening, the council met again Thursday to inspect the rolls ot Assessor B. M. Bayes. Down the long lists of figures and descriptions fan the eyes of the councilors as they scrutlniied the source of the municipal finance. Friday evening the council was called by Mayor O. IS. Whitfieid in extraordinary session. About the walnut desk ot Clerk Wood' ford R. Byington the members gathered, smoked (but threw no matches on the floor) and pondered the financial situation. Careful checking ot funds and sources revealed that they would he well able to meet a coming bond payment, although utmost economy would be- necessary to do so. Following that problem representatives of the Iowa-Nebraska Light and Power company appeared with suggestions as to Btreet lighting, Arranged was a plan whereby the street lights will be run until the first of November by an almost painless method of financing. Much relieved, for they had feared the necessity of turning the lights out, the councilors quipped, adjourned, went out for refreshment and home and to bed. Not abashed by three strenuous nights, the council attempted to arrange an ex-oHlclo meeting with bank and depositor officials of the Malvern Trust and Savings bank, That soft* tets expensive method at handling local relief wotk to needed, tt evidenced by tfte bet that almost an requiring any financial outlay mast hi *HfUtt«l.

Doubtless this could M obtained af a very small cost. Let those heads of .families and men who Will need reiiet assistance next winter, plant, cultivate and harvest the garden under the direction ot some responsible overseer. Those working will be paid on a per hour basts in script. This script will not be immediately cashable, but can be ex changed for the garden prod .11 ii i '•" " "• ' '•"• ' Dollar in Trade With Each Subscription Paid Malvern Leader Again Make* IU Great Subscription Offer to You A few weeks ago we made an astonishing subscription offer to our readers during a two day Dollar Day Sale. Well, the banks were all given a holiday at that very time and the money tied up so that a good many were unable to take advantage of this offer who really wanted to, Bo, we are going to give them another chance. During our spring opening sale and Baby Chick nets when needed next winter. ptodnct* Wtrich «u> County Seat fee caused will be done so by those who will need relief, and these persons wilt be paid In script also. Potatoes, and like vegetables, will be stored where they will be sate from tfeeiing until needed. When the W»A ot planting, cultivating, harvesting and canning is finished those in charge will compute the total cost of the project, divide this into the amount ot truck raised and price it on a cost basts, the script will then purchase exactly as much as was produced so that those working will get full value for their labor. While some details ot this plan must be worked out more completely, It seems as if It would be genuinely workable. Rev, Gugeler would like to have discussion ot its merits or weaknesses so that it can be perfected. It will be necessary for it to be formulated and put into operation within a very few days In order to be in time tor the spring planting. Joe Wearin in Hospital for Operation Joe Wearin was taken ill last week and on Sunday grew so much worse that he was taken to the Edmondson hospital In Council Bluffs that evening and his trouble was diagnosed as a kink in the upper Intestine.
