Boehner Calls Meeting Thli Evening to Explain Taxing Interest in local governmental problems, after slumbering peacefully for years, seems thoroughly awakened by the Bylngton-Boeh- ner debate of last Thursday evening. Believing that the town's (tax situation was not sufficiently examined during the debate, L., W. Boehner has catted another meeting for this Thursday evening In the Community building, at which time he will go into further detail. To enable all of the citizenry to attend Mr. Boehner has asked the Iowa»Nebraska Light and Power company to turn on all of the town's street lights for the evening. The meeting ,wlll be at 8 p. m. and is further explained in a communication by Mr. Boehner published on page two of this is- Milton Brother* Will Held Sale of Hereford Cattle Will Seti 110 Head Bfed Cattl* at Fafm, LIGHT sue. _ ioue Contest Staged Window O f M a hT ern , Bakery by Boys in & A unique contest is being "staged in' tbe show windows of tbe Malvern Bakery.

They are selling about 110 lead of cows with calves, belters, tolls, and a flne lot of calves, both bulls and heifers. They are selling a very ferae* leal lot of cattle for the average farmer and breeder for their cows are regular producers and as a lot are as well bred cattle as iny In the state. They feature such welt known amities as the Disturbers, Anxi* sties, Beau Blanchards, Beau Mischiefs, and other well known strains. They have the true beef type. They have always bred for quality and size and they have both. In the offerings are 40 head of cows with calves, besides some splendid bulls. The forty calves are divided into 28 bulls and 12 heifers. Here will be another flne opportunity for the 4-H club members to get some classy calves for their feeding and also a good time to buy a young bull to grow for your herdi There are also a flne lot of heifers, two and three year olds, that are just the thing if you want to add to your herd or start one.

However, unless the town issues ffiori afttielpltofy Warrants —. which the council has re* ftised te do itid which most citizens do not want them to dd — the fa* income will not he sufficient to provide the town with lights. The reasoi fof this is quite apparent, fen years ago the taxable Ifeluations of real property in Malvem were 40 per cent higher than today, and taxable valuations of moneys afld credits were 67 per cent higher, While these have declined, the income from the 7 mill light levy (the maximum allowed by law) has decreased correspondingly. The last General Assembly decreed further direct reductions so that the light fund has shrunk even more. But there Is one way —and a fairly easy one —by Which we cati have lights in Malvern. We can take all the tax money which the light levy brings in and sup. .plement that with private contributions .and from the two funds provide enough money for street lighting. Such a method is a compromise. It is not altogether de- sirabJe nor Is it, perhaps, the most equitable way to handle a municipal project. But it seems to be the only way by which we can get street lights and because of this it is highly justifiable. Several citizens have asked The Leader to present this suggestion to the citizens of Malvern. Below is pub- Mshd a coupon which we hope every citizen will read arid mark according" to his own opinion of the matter. The sum needed is not large. Possibly $400 more would provide lights for tbe year. That amount means only about 40c per citizen. Already three have volunteered amounts of f 6 and others have donated smaller sums. If everyone would give from 50c to $1 our light problem would be settled. Read the, coupon carefully, If you like this plan, or streetlights a&'all, mark the proper ... t . \ <> -,T f.,.

Berulae Bctoening, prestijent Byington-Boehner Debate Efficiency of Town Conduct 400 Attend Meeting to Learn What's Wrong if Anything When the country's forefathers disembarked on famed Plymouth Rock they handled their local governmental affairs through the medium of a town meeting, at tended by just about all of the citizenry. Malvernlans trampec hrongh the unllghted streets to be Community building las Thursday evening on much the same mission. Not to conduct but to learn of he town's municipal business was the purpose of the citizenry Thursday. Teachers of the evening were L. W. Boehner, who raised the question of the efficiency of the city fathers, and Woodford R. Byington. town :lerk, who explained more or less ntlmate details of the town business. Speaking first Mr. Boehner harged that the town had spent housands of dollars in search for an adequate water supply and to ate had not obtained any. Also, barged Mr. Boehner, the town •ought too much insurance for he Community building, paid -,: -hat he termed an unwise con•act with the Thorpe Brothers Veil company of Des Molnes for new well. The complete con- ract was published in last week's Leader. This contract Mr. BoeUner declared to be illegal In that two members of the town's officialdom, Mayor D. B. Whltfleld and J. M. Steele, did not really live In town and were, therefore, noi citizens and had no power to ac for the town. Mr. Boehner endec hU argument by repeating his call for the resignation of al members of the council, "I do not wish this to be taken personally," emphasized Mr, Boebner, "for all are good friends of mine. To the defense like a boxer who has a slight edge in skill over his opponent came Mr. By. Ington, An able orator, be minced no words m his argument, presenting reasons for every act of me council. Admitting that find, in* ft supply or water had always been & difficult task for every council, he defended the Thorpe contract on the grounds that it would furnish the town with a water supply for Jess than had ever been.possible before. Jn strong detail he explained rhy the council bad rejected Mr. McPherton Heads Masons of Nishna Circle Next Year Wa» Elected President of Circle at Meeting, Mai- rerti, Monday Night Ralph McPherron St. was elected to head Kishna M»»onfe Circle When more than seventy-five Masons from the lodges of Emerson, Randolph, Tabor, Matvern, Sliver City, and Glenwood assembled at the Masonic halt In Mat* Vern Monday evening for the regular September meeting and a real live meeting It was. President Roy Zlmmer of Tabor presided and after calling the brethren to order proceeded to hold the annual election with the following result: President, Ralph McPherron, Jr., Qlenwood. Secretary-treasurer, L. £. Poster, Randolph. The new president then appointed Miller of Silver City, Greenwood of Emerson, and Ha* ney of Glenwood a committee to arrange a program for the year. The next meeting will be the third Monday in October at Randolph. President SStmmer then called upon Henry Dean of Glenwood who Introduced Lewis Smith of Omaha, Grand Secretary and Treasurer of the Grand Lodge of Nebraska Masons, who gave the address of the evening. It was well arranged and well presented and proved of deep Interest to all present. The lodges certainly appreciated the presence and address of this brother. Brothers Reeves of Omaha and Qarpenter -of Council Bluffs also favored the brethren with some appropriate remarks. Following this program the Malvern lodge served sandwiches and coffee and a general social time ensued. It was pronounced one of the best meetings of the Circle yet held. This organization Is beginning Its third year. Future Farmers in M. H. S. Organize for Boehner's offer to supply the gallons, saying that a con^ met could not be obtained, that past transactions from that puree bad not been satisfactory 14 that the new Thorpe contract ought water for less.
