Notice of appeal in the case of Albert F. Trettin et al. vs. the National Clay Products company and Fred Keeler was filed Monday in the office of the clerk of the district court by Smith and Faeney, attorneys for the defendants. The appeal to the Iowa supreme court Is from the decision of Judge T. A. Beardmore, Charles City, who found for the plaintiff to the extent of $80,100.73. The decision of the Charles City judge, which was handed down Sept. 9, granted some 205 stockholders in the extinct National Clay works, who were holding a total of 1,774 8-9 shares of preferred stock judgment on the basis of .$31.65 for each share plus interest at 6 per cent from Aug. 3, 1926, making a total of $45.13 a share. The judge reached the decision that the National Clay Products company, organized by Mr. Keeler to take over the assets of the National Clay works, had paid an inadequate consideration to the extent of 5100,000 for the assets of the old concern. The aliquot part of this for each owner of the preferred stock was reached by dividing 5100,000 by 3,150, the total number of shares outstanding. On what issues the appeal is he- ing made was not revealed Monday. One of the main contentions of the defendants at the trial was that the time for the stockholders to have appeared for remedy was in the receivership court of Maine and that the plaintiffs had "slept on their rights."

MORE PROGRESS FOR CHURCHES IS PREDICTION MADE Need of More Development Urged by Minister in Services Here. "The Churches of Christ in Iowa have the largest number of churches with regular preaching they have had for years" was the statement of J. A. DUHnger, secretary of the Iowa Christian Missionary society at the Church of Christ Sunday. "Missionary organizations have drawn heavily on their reserves in meeting the emergencies of the economic disoj-der but all debts are amply secured. It is my firm belief that the Protestant churches are on the verge of the greatest progress in their history." Mr. Dlllinger was guest speaker for the Woman's day program at the Church of Christ Sunday morning. Mrs. c. D. Combs, president of the Women's Missionary society was in charge. Need Amplitude. The need for amplitude in spiritual and material fullness of development was emphasized by the Rev. William H. Spence in a sermon Sunday morning at the First Methodist church. Speaking on "The Margins of Life," he~~pointed out that a teacher must have a margin of knowledge exceeding that of the students, that business must do a margin of business over the bare expenses to succeed. In meeting obstacles, Mr. Spence urged, do not get smaller but get larger. He said that no man without good health is likely to attain his ideal, although there are exceptions to this. Strong bodies, he stated, give opportunities for strong margin. Intellectual margins were also called for by Mr. Spence. Not by cramming or knowledge, but by thinking should intellect be Improved. Should Be Guide. "Concerning our life here, Christ's watchword to us should guide and influence the mode and trend of our living," said the Rev. W. K. Kampen at the Central Lutheran church. "We are here as fellow sojourners for a brief period of time. Why will we trample down our fellow passengers; push them out o£ the high places that we may hnve given them; spend our days fretful over trifles, warping- our lives by hatred, envy, greed, jealousy aad pettiness when time is so short and love and friendship so sweet--so dear." To the questioning Pharisees (ts to when the Kingdom of God would come, the Savior's reply that the "Kingdom of God la within you" was the theme of the sermons at Trinity and Calvary churches Sunday morning-. Referring to the Savior's statement as recorded in Luke 17:20-30 about the people who lived in the days of Noah, the builder of the ark, the Rev. O. L. A 7 . Wigdahl quoted the Savior's warning against being- so taken up with worldly interests that we do not give heed to the Lord's call to all men. God, the Preserver. "God, the Preserver of Man" was the subject of the lesson-sermon in the Church of Christ, Scientist. The Golden Text from Deuteronomy 33: 27, "The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms." T h e Jesson-sermon comprised quotations from the Bible and from the Christian Science textbook "Science and Health With Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. · One of the Bible citations read: "I will mention the loving kindnesses of the Lord, and the praises of the Lard, according to all that the Lord hath bestowed on us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel, which he hath bestowed on them according to his mercies, and according to the multitude of his loving kindnesses. For he said, Surely they are my people children that will not lie: So be was their Savior." flsaiah 63:7-8). Don't Know His Nnnie. "The name of our God is Jesus Christ," said the Rev. Chauncey Merwin at the Nazarene church "The God of the Old Testament Complete Speedometer Service Central Battery and Electric Company was known as Jehovah and we in this new dispensation have failed to see that the name which gives us all power in heaven and in earth is Jesus Christ," he said. "We have eternal joy and eternal life through His name. "It is surprising that in this Christian nation we do not know the name of the God we worship. A Chinaman knows that the god he worships is Confucius and an Arab will tell you that his god is Ma- hommed, but most Christians do not know the name of the real and living God."
