The Hoover lots are on the south- eaut corner of Lincoln way and Sheldon avenue. Mr. and Mrs. Hoover have endeavored for more than a year to have the fourth ward business district extended westward along Lincoln way to include property, or at least to have theiift, property alone classified for commercial use. It was understood an oil company desired to least the lite for a gasoline filling station. Fourth Ward Aroueed The whole fourth ward became excited about the affair, and just a year ago opposition arose at a council meeting causing the council to refer the matter to the city planning commission for the second time. The commission had been badly split over the question. The affair has since bounded back and forth between the council and the plan commission, and on one occasion those bodies held a joint meeting, which resulted In no action one way or another. Somewhere along the line there appeared a new petition, requesting that the southwest ana northwest corners at Sheldon and Lincoln way also he Included In a business classification. Back to the planning commission went the whole affair. Finally, early in th-> summer, the plan body presented a report to the council, recommending that when and if the 'council so desires to extend the .fourth ward business dtet- fist. It be extended to Include Lincoln way a» far west as Hyland avenue and also to include some adjacent territory. , Now U» To Council In other words, the commission apparently had rid itself of the p.ffalr. and any futnrp action ap- nears to rest solely with the coun cil. The matter has remained dormant virtually all summer, and was almost forgotten until Mr. Buck rudely jarred the memories «.nd recollections of councilmen Monday night. The council granted the Fort Dodge.

The passenger train and its hn man load that Kate is supposed to have saved from destruction in the washout, was standing at Moingona waiting lor the switch engine to arrive to prove that the track wa safe. The passenger grain's crew had no Intention of proceeding In to the gale over the river unti word of the safety of the track hai been received, according to Mr. El US' story. Awaited Safety Word Two switch engines had teen dis patched to test the safety of thi track, one from' Boone, the othe from Grand Junction. Two section foremen already had be«n drowned while attempting to cover the track afoot. The engine from Grand June tion had reached its goal at Moln gona, on the west side of th« river and the passenger had followed i to that point The engine from Boone. bearing three men. approached the river slowly, jt bad reached the cr«k bridge, and the engineer was feel ing his way along extremely cau tionsly. He related that the engine seemed to hold to the track in firm manner when he started over .the .creek bridge. But suddenly the bridge gave way without an in stant's warning, and the locomotive plunged into the torrent. His fireman and the switchman were drowned. He caught the tree top and clung there, calling for help. fi Shelley's heard his cries, and Kate started around the hill ant] over the high bridge to Moingona for help to rescue the stranded engineer. The railroad recognized her bravery even in that emergency, and Kate later wag made station master at Moingona, remaining there for many years. Her deed and the tale that she had saved the passenger- train, made her a nation al heroine. ROOSEVELT SPEEDS . BACK TO KEW YORK (Continued from Page One) hopeful that political subdivisions would contribute a like.amount. A wbitejiotise -staff on the train prepared replies to a flood of telegrams that poured in on the president congratulating him for his Chicago address. Some messages were from veterans who felt that the president's principles of veterans' relief were fair. Mr. Roosevelt also was Immensely cheered by the riotous re- caption accorded him In Chicago. Mrs. Roosevelt did not return on the train but flew to New York from Chicago Monday afternoon to be in New York city for the opening of the Todhunter school o| which she formerly was a faculty member. •Mr. Roosevelt will leave New York late Wednesday night for Washington.

Joe Mackey Faces Another Jail Term NEVADA—Joe Mackey ol Slater is beginning to find life Just one jail term after another, either because he likes the board and lodging furnished by the county or because he finds It impossible to keep away from liquor, or both.

He was arrested Monday night by Marehal William VanGundy of Slater. Mackey has served numerous terms in County jail. COUNCIL VOTES TO MOVE DUMP (Continued from Page One) ground, but according to Mr. Swank has far outlived the promises of former administrations to move it to some other site, remote from any residence district Swank Got Buty Mr. Swank had come to believe that nothing ever would be done about the dump K he didn't take some active part on,behalf of his ward, and set about at once after his election to obtain the removal of thlg unsightly and odorous blot oa the third ward landscape. Hit presentation of a proposal came without advance notice in the council session. His motion to approve the purchase of the new site was supported by Councilman George J. Palmer of the fourth ward. It was passed unanimously. The entrance to the new dump will be thru a driveway directly off the paved highway. A dairy operated on an adjoining -site has been abandoned, it it reported. There Is little tykdjhood that,the city will expand eastward, at least for many years to come: Such expansion would most probably be of an industrial nature, if it ever takes place.

Brushed Wool Sweaters If your boy hw been watching what the big fellows are wearing, he's probably already asked for a brushed wool sweater. Boys are really much more "style conscious" than they seem, and the boys who hare seen these new sweaters are enthusiastic about them. Our price of $1.39 on these sweaters is possible only because we bought them last spring. When these are gone they will be $1.95 unless prices go higher in the meantime.
