The petitio- states that at the time of her death Mrs. Moss was 42 years of age and the mother of seven minor children. Grounds Aro Given. The plaintiff asks recovery on the following grounds: That the defendant failed to keep a sharp lookout ahead and failed to observe the automobile of Mi- Strand.

Addresses on Lincoln and Wash mgton, patriotic numbers by th American club of the high schoo and several musical features mad up the program for the Febrimn joint party of Clausen-Worden pos" of the Legion and the auxiliary a the artnory Thursday evening. Th( attendance was one of the largesi this season. The chief address of the evening was given by Arthur L. Rule who spoke on Lincoln, drawing upon parts of the speech he delivered before the Iowa assembly Feb 12 and particularly stressing the supreme tolerance of the emancipator in dealing with his political enemies. Lincoln's handling of Seward \vhc was ambitious to usurp the presi dential seat and who considered Lin coin a weakling, anu of Chase whose disloyalty to his chief was re warded with an appointment o chief justice was narrated by the speaker. · Denounced Musters. Mr. Rule was vociferous in his denunciation of Edgar Lee Masters' recently announced book on Lincoln "I can't help but boil at the attempts made to belittle the character of this great man," he declared. "But it is not necessary to defend Abraham Lincoln. "No man since the Blessed ter Himself has lived in closer harmony with the Almighty. He earnestly sought Divine guidance in everything he undertook." Mr. Rule particularly attacked the statement attributed to Mr. Masters that Lincoln kept his bride waiting at the altar and did not show up at the time he was to be married. Records show that no marriage license had been issued at the time this was purported to have taken place he said. ' Reviewed Early Life. The speaker reviewed the early life of Lincoln, who, he said was the product of pioneer life with less than a year's schooling and with only seven books to peruse up to the time he reached his majority. Lincoln's reappearance on the political area in 1854 to attack the Douglas sponsored Kansas-Nebraska bill and his joint debates with Douglas were detailed by the speaker. Mrs. James Pritchard, Onawa vice president of the auxiliary, introduced at the meeting by Mrs E, F. Toinby, president of the Mason City unit, spoke of the ideals of Americanism' -set by such leaders as Lincoln and Washington. She also scored Edgar Lee Masters' attempt to debunk Lincoln. Mrs. Pritchard then spoke on the Americanization program of the Legion and the auxiliary. The auxiliary this year is making an effort to work with the girls in the rural schools, she said.

Jean Lovell, with unusual poise and grace gave the "Story of Our National Songs," Interspersed with singing of several songs by the audience.

Two vocal solos were given by Mrs Floyd Fraser, accompanied by Mr! Fraser on the piano accordion. Commander T. A. Nettleton presided at the meeting. The party closed with a dance with the Varsity club orchestra sup- Plying the music. Lunch was served by the auxiliary.
