Next dlay it was twenty minutes and then it was a halt hour and then forty minutes. The mystery deepened. Then one morning the janitor, N. C, Reasoner, happened to look up at the clock and saw a big fat pigeon calmly roosting on one of the clock hands. The hand had quit-moving. It had power back of It enough to carry it around but not enough to lift a -one pound pigeon, The mystery is no longer a mystery. The janitor , proposes putting a screen netting over the face Of the clock.

New Surfacing of County Highways Started Saturday Oil Coat Applied at Emerson, Hastings, Malvern in Procesa Surfacing ot county highways under the experimental plan adopted by the Board of Supervisors some time ago, was started Saturday and has been progress- Ing at a rapid rate since. The oil coat, primary part of the process >bas been applied at Bmerson and Hastings and la now being applied at Maivern. Included in the experiment are only the roads to the cemeteries from towns where no surfaced road now exists. This, tbe board believes, will give,ample opportunity tor a thorough test ot the surfacing and enable . them to base future procedure upon a reliable check ot results. former*, Saturday; ButTington President Into the already crowded field of farm organizations Saturday came still another when the Law and Order Association of Mills County, Iowa, was formed, This group, formed as its leaders! stated purely to meet an immediate situation, was loosely organized without dues or signed obligations, at a meeting called for the purpose in .the court bouse in Qlenwood Saturday afternoon, When plcketers stopped trucks going to market by the Plaits- mouth bridge early last week several farmers In the western part of the county called their neighbors, met with Sheriff W, 8, peMoss and met Wednesday evening with a force of about 300 men to conduct trucks of farm goods through the farm strike picket lines, Seeing this force, the plcketera left their posts and allowed the trucks to run, The organizers of the anti* picket force of Wednesday evening, wishing to develop an organization to keep tbe roads open, called the meeting Satur* day for that purpose, About 60 farmers attended and took part in the organization work, Frank Buffington waa 'elected chairman of the organisation and I,,, it. Richard-son secretary. A resolutions committee was appointed with Ronald Buffingtop, keonar4 Seeger, Frank W. Create, carl Morgan, a»4 Oluey Buae. This group brought in a set of three resolutions which were adopted by tbe organisation, They are: I) ReBoived that tfea purpjjse of this organization shall be to cooperate with the federal gpy, ejrnment in its plans w 4evelQne4 to benefit agriculture as a whole, S) Resolved that this organization shall 8fa&4 Iwr free and unmolested trsnspojtaUQa by rftU highway to markets. Resolve4 that this orgeat is assembles prtMrily as. a, body Pi JaiffiWS W&O Wifth by f Q*ca of ft (Wf4l Anxious to learn new and bet- tef methods of doing their dally task ot equipping youth ot the county With fundamental knowledge, grade and rural teachers ot Milt* county attended two work conferences this week, arranged tor them by County Superintendent Amy Hammers. The grade teachers met in Qtenwood Man-*day and rural teachers studied in Malrern. Stressed during the conferences were the teachings of read' Ing and geography. Miss Pearl Rttter and Miss Clara Wallace, ot the state department ot education, demonstrated with classes gathered from schools represent* ed the more effective manner ot teaching these subjects. Used by the state workers were methods in which the interest ot pupils was centered on the objee* tive desired, and pupils then were stimulated to search out necessary facts for themselves. This method, an.outgrowth ot the pedagogy advocated by the famed Dr. John Dewey, not only gains greater concentration on studies by the pupil, but results in a greater retention of the facts learned. At the Olenwood conference pupils from the Olenwood public schools were used in the demon* strattons. Pupils from the East school took part in the second and third grade work and the West school furnished pupils for the other demonstrations. Before the rural teachers at Malvern Mt. Vernon ot Center township pupils demonstrated first grade work; White Cloud and Evernham second-graders were used; Pacific City fourth graders, Centerline fifth graders and Foxworthy sixth graders helped with the methods teach* tng. ' . . Besides teachers, all now ln> school attending, a large number' of visitors saw * the : conference- ifl IPBftiM ft ftfi|o_njjil|y|| ' or i llK^NT oKT*li: Grading developed for the expert mental roads is of the same type as that used on the primary roads and the jobs done thus far look just as well finished. First part of the surfacing proper is the application of an ol coat, This, a special formula, con tains about 40 per cent asphalt and rapidly settles into the road Next another oil coat, of slightly different mixture, is applied, An error on the part of the engineer in charge, sent here by the company selling the surfacing, slow* e<J up the work Monday when it was learned that they lacked nearly a fourth of a carload of oil, The final coat is the black cap proper which Is a mixture ot gravel and asphalt oil, The whole forms a water-proof surface to the road and prevents moisture From softening the grade. Thus it keeps the road firm and clean regardless of the weather, A few patches of the road are also being treated in a slightly different manner to determine possibilities for further economy. The black cap is mixed in a huge machine which does so while beating material to a temperature of about 820 degrees, The big machine lumbers slowly down tbe road to be surfaced, picking up automatically the gravel p|le4 «t the sJ4e a«4 other ingredients, mixing them thoroughly at the required ture, and spewing out the black cap In tbe proper place and man Rer. shown in, both conferences and' highly praised the work of the two state demonstrators.
