Accordingly, when the stranger drove up last week in a nice Pontiac roadster bearing a Nebraska license number of 29*1887, and parked near the defunct Mills County National and seemed to have business inside, he started to Investigate, He found the car occupied by an auburn haired woman of pleasing appearance and when be suggested that he might search their car, she ecqul* esced but asked that be wait until her husband, appeared so as to not emharasg her too much, The mayor was willing, but first he deputized Paul Sulhoff to watch her while he trailed the man.

Some baccalaureate speakers therefore, use the occasion not only to advise their auditors, but to prepare them gently for the sound bump which will be theirs when they clash with the notably cold economic world a short time later. Rev. Lee Roy Bobbitt. pastor of the Baptist church, followed this plan Sunday evening as he delivered the baccalaureate sermon In his own church to the class of 1933 of Malvern high school. Large Attendance No dry dissertation on uninteresting theory was given by Rev. Bobbitt. Instead, seniors, and the large audience of laymen who tilled every seat and all May Opportunity Sale which is now in progress. Special prices have been made n every department of the store — prices which will probably iever be made again as continued nflatlonary policies indicate a igher level In the future.

The teachers of the Malvern schools have long been preparing the members of the class of 1933 for an event which comes Friday evening. For twelve long years they have beeii cramming, stuffing, Inducing knowledge Into the developing mental equipment ot the twenty-four members of that class.

Mulholland, president of the >oard of education, will present he members with their diplomas.
