E. McDonald, county coroner, at the courthouse assembly room Saturday. The jurors at the hearing were F. B. Shaffer, John Vance and C. D. Mulcahy. County Attorney Roe Thompson was present at the opening of the case, bift later Charles Barlow, assistant county attorney, was present as the legal advisor of the coroner. Mr. Barlow, however, was asked by the coroner not to query the witnesses. "We want to do this without the assistance of 'attorneys," he said. L. R. Boomhower was in the room as a representative of the estate of Mr. Wrede, while R. F. Clough was present as the attorney for Mrs. Fagerly. Mra. Fagerly did not testify at the hearing, after being told that it \vas her privilege not to do so. Most of the testimony was given by farmers about Plymouth, who found Mr. Wrede in the road and helped bring him to a farmhouse, where he received the attention of physicians.

Gleason told of the aims and purposes of scouting. Three of the Hampton Boy Scouts gave a flag demonstration, outlining the history of the flag and courtesies due it. Five o£ these scouts, under the direction of Dr. Powers and Dr. Rule put on a first-aid demonstration which was interesting. After the demonstration a short discussion of scouting and its benefits to the community was held, after which it was moved and seconded that the P. T. A. president appoint a committee to look into the organization. This committee consisted of H. J. Carroll, chairman; S. G. Barlow, Dr. Rhoeder, Homer Pfaltzgraff and Henry Brown. This group met in the superintendent's office and called a meeting for Tuesday, March 3, at which time Dr. Powers and Mr. Gleason, field executive, will meet with them, organize a committee and select a scoutmaster.
