Augustana Defeated 19th Straight Time SIOUX CITY W) -- Morningside handed Augustana its 19th consecutive defeat of the season Thursday night, winning a ragged North C e n t r a l Conference basketball game 76-66. The Maroons trailed during the first period but spurted for 30 points in the second quarter and went on to win. Morningsido, in third -place in the conference, has a 6-3 league record. QUAKE VICTIM GETS SYMPATIIY-A victim of the disastrous earthquake'7hTc°h struck Greece s Ionian Islands last August pours out her "problems to Queen Frederika during a royal inspection tour. A military escort guides the queen past the victims. Right Around the Corner: A Talking Letter By HARMAN W; NICHOLS /WASHINGTON "(UP)--They arc talking about "talking letters" which are said to be right around the corner. They can keep it. around the corner, for all of me. I do a better job with my two or three "talking fingers" on the typewriter. And besides, I can make file carbons if I want to. According to manufacturers, a family would have to have a machine at each end of the line. Both could transmit on a record and receive the answer--which would be dictated on the other side. Would Work Like .This It would work like this. Mama sits clown at the mike and tells about the wonderful gooseberry jam Aunt Nellie has cooked up. Then she tells one on the parakeet. The little rascal has confused his words and embarrassed everyone in front of the parson. Uncle Ned listens to all of that in Pitchfork, Neb., flips the patter and com'es back with the news that a couple of rattlesnakes did Grandpa in and that Granny is down with the gout again. Most folks like to keep a file of folksy, personal letters. How can you keep a file when one letter is on one side of the record and the answer is on the other. There can be only one file-most likely at the wrong end of, the line. The people who make the newfangled letter talker say corpora- ti o n s with "far-flung operations" already are trying the idea out in inter-office niemos. Works to Advantage One insurance company, though, has put the new gimmick to work to an advantage. This outfit has claim offices in 100 cities all over the country. Say an adjuster is on the road and makes an estimate of the loss to his client's done-in herd of horses from a fire. He "talks" his report on into a mike and for three- cents or for airmail postage mails it to the home office. The office gels it the next day. There is a.hitch there, too. The thing has to be typed with carbons to all hands concerned anc! there is a duplication of effort. Plus a lot of expense, plus the original cost of a couple of machines. Iowa Horse Nation's Leading Trotter for '53 Harness Season COLUMBUS, Ohio (UP)--Official figures of the U.S. Trotting Assn Thursday showed Goldie Bales, an 8-year-old pacing mare owned by C. E. Martin of Denison, Iowa, was the nation's 1953 leading race winner with 32 victories in 40 starts.

Jennings, Centcrville, Iowa, finished first in 1952 with 27 victories but won only 18 in 1953 to tie for 10th place among trotters. NAME-DROPPER EAST HAVEN, Conn.

FEB. 75 Rockford lent from jobless pay. In other slates, the recipient is disqualified if the pension exceeds the amount of'money he would get under unemployment compensation. If the pensioner has contributed toward the cost of his pension, some states will permit him to draw state jobless pay. In other instances the decisive factor appears to be whether his retirement was voluntary. . The latest state to take this position was New Jersey, CCH said. The New Jersey supreme court ruled recently that if a pensioner retired because a union contract re- FARM SALE Due to the fact that I have decided to quit farming and will move to town I will hold a closing out farm sale on the farm located 2 mi. south of Rock Falls or 4 mi. east and 3 mi. north of Mason City, on WEDNESDAY, FEB. 24 12:30 P.
