fiig MM¥imt EMA1TCHESS at the Tourtiametit tonr»a»«rt this will to*t retotUn In the »e»ory of all those fortunate enough to attend. Especially noteworthy not to ssjr In-eath-taking were tfce thfe* tames fonght out on Saturday night. Malvern, handicapped by the Illness of two of the players finally overcame Strahan In the last tew frantic minutes of tbe «rtt game to drlv* the crowd wild •with glee or disappointment as tfcetr sympathies directed. The queerest thing about the game to me was the fact that nobody was carried out with a heart attack. I'd say that those three games were a real test of any- fcedy'B heart as well as their longs; Incidentally my lungs couldn't take it. Silver City showed unusual skill when they defeated Olenwood In the second game of the evening. The big thrill of the night came in the last game when Henderson tied P. J. 20 to 20 and then beat them in the last three minutes to carry off the J>rize, winner of the 1934 basketball tournament. I believe the Malvern students are to be congratulated on their attempts to banish that very un- Rportsrnenllke practice of booing though perhaps the thanks should go to the faculty, Mr. Darlson and Mr, Hertz in particular.

This was fmaienseiy enfoyed by the teftefier as well *s the girts. Mr. Swoboda aad Paul were very obliging to show them the machinery and tBe way It operated. When thet arrived the bread was taken ffotn the ov«tt. The oven was so large that it was no wonder "ohs" and "ahs" were beard. Mr. Swoboda mixed rye bread and rolled pie crusts. The girls learned how to make the dough into parker house tolls and cinnamon rolls and also observed bread being sliced and wrapped. They desire to express their many thanks to Mf. Swoboda and Paul for their trouble. Thursday afternoon the girls entertained their mothers at tea. The tea and cookies were made by them. A very nice number responded to the invitations. They are hoping to entertain again later in the year. Examines Grade Children The county nurse recently spent three days *n Malvern. iJnr- that time she Inspected 139 tn grades one to seven. She reports the following defects: Defective vision, 24; defective hearing, 7; defective teeth, 83; defective nasal breathing, 33; defective throat, 6i; children 10 per cent or more underweight, 16; children with one or tnore defects, 108, ' Mrs. Smith invited parents to visit her, especially where a definite abnormal condition was found. Four mothers responded to the invitation. She made one home visit where the child was ill. Artists and Orators Eighth Grade Chose Sides for a Spelling Contest The eighth grade spelling class have chosen aides and elected captains and are ready to begin the contest. The captains are Mary Louise Juelke and Robert Perdew, An interesting contest is predicted. The study of safety first Is the main interest in health class. Posters were made demonstrating safety first and stressing its Importance. A prize will be given the person who makes the best poster. Members of the arithmetic class are racking their brains for information supposedly obtained from tbe study of circles, prisms, and cylinders. Many times the search Is in vain. ^ Malcolm Juelke: "I cannot •sipg the old songs — nor yet the newer ones; the students all heard me—-and now they Ain't It a Grand and Glorious Feeling?

First Grade Plans Party The first grade pupils are anxiously awaiting Valentines day, which comes next week, as their teacher is planning a party for them. They are becoming more grown up every day. Thejr are now learning their ABC'a and Miss Churchill hopes they will know all of them by the end of next week, • Many pretty valentines have been made by pupils in the first grade. Some are white cuplds on a red background and various other, kinds, ,,, It is nev^f quite known whal can be hidden under that well known bushel but a new sclntll latfng light, Vincent Zimmerman has burst forth in the Junior realm. Bright and early Friday morning the sun and the teacher, Miss Nervlg, found Vincent making more than life-like pictures bn the board. They are quite good '— par excellent — a connoisseur speaking. The pictures, reminders of hygiene, are of the vocal cords, larnyx, lungs, and head. With the assistance of Vincent's drawings Devere Knight lectured on the use of those organs In connection with good public speaking. Unhappily he was not acquainted with the drawings even as well na some of the other members of the class. Perhaps "stage fright" caused this loss of memory, Nevertheless the lecture was very interesting. Maybe next time this deficiency may be removed by having the artist and speaker one. It one wants to see an indns- triona Rronp jnst visit the Enp- Iteh Literature clasa on news mornings. I will try to enumerate to you Some of the noteworthy pupils and their doinRS.

Three or four month, ago at a meeting of the Commercial club I expressed the opinion that our Mayor and the City Council should resign. That they were either incompetent *r careless in managing the affairs of our City. I also published the same in The Malvern Leader. At a called meeting of the Commercial Club the President asked me to state my posUion and called upon City Clerk Mr. Byington to defend ft. Council's action. I maintain we are facing a confiscation of our property unless this foolish spending is stopped. Attend the public meetmg at the Community bu.ldmg Fnday evenmg, Feb. 16, at 7:30 prompt. Respectfully, L. W, BOEHNER. Itf' -i The many foolish things that have been done In the past and the foolish things they are now fiolag and the waste of the tax payers' money compels me to place the situation before you as citizens, • The taxes paid to the City of Malvern the last 40 years amount to about 400,000 or 600,000 doU lars.

I do not claim any graft or dishonesty on tbe part of the Council but that they are simply careless or incompetent. At a public meeting the City Clerk, Mr. Byington, made A statement that the Cold Storage plant bad a secret pipe line from which we were stealing water by the thousands of gal- Ions from tbe city, I said the statement was false and J believe Mr. ByJngton knew it was false when be made It. At the second meeting at the Community build' ing I stated that the statement wa.8 a Ue and I believe be knew it was a lie when he made it. Attorney Byington as yet has not been wan enough to acknowledge he was mistaken and when he accuses me or the Cold Storage plant ol stealing water he accuses eyery JB»« }n my employ of being a thief. j want to express my appreciation of the excellent manner the streets have been graveled by OW4 money.

We have always stood by and furnished the town water when they needed It at 12V& cents per thousand gallons in the tank. Several years ago we told them that in the winter we would want 20c a thousand as we did not run all the time and would have to keep a special man for that purpose. But of late years we hava run the Cold Storage plant night and day and we told the Council it they would reduce the prices to consumer to 40c we would furnish them all their water at 12 %c per thousand gallons iu the tank. Now the water question could be easily settled. All it needs Is a good filterer and the same could Uo built at from $3,000 to $5,000.
