Two poets tied for first place in the Globe-Gazette Big Sister Poem contest and each will receive the prize of ?10. The first prize winners are? Kathryn E. Leonard, 840 South Pennsylvania Avenue. Nate Miller, RFD No. 1, Mason City. Judging 143 poems by amateur poets of every age, sex and con- didtion of life is no small task and one which has 'occupied no small part of the time and attention of the Globe-Gazette staff during the past three days. The "Big Sister" poem contest closed at the end of last week and then the judging began. First the contest editor and her assistants read every one of ttie entries and sorted them.into four groups, those that were disqualified by not being accompained by tally sheets as stated in the rules, those that were regarded as "fair," those that were "good" and those that were out- 1 standing. "Good" group was then looked over again and a few more added to the "outstanding" classification bringing the total of these latter to 30. ' These were .carefully considered by the editorial staff of the paper and from these 30 ten were selected and these ten were then given to three members of the staff to rank in order merit. As a result of this careful consideration two poems emerged as of almost equal rank and so. narrow was the margin of choice on the part of three final judges that the Globe-Gazette decided to award not one prize of $10 but two prizes of that amount and checks will be forwarded immediately to the two winners named above. In addition-the-uouteat' judges were so impressed by the merit of eight other entries that they persuaded the Globe-Gazette to add eight $1 prizes 'and these will be forwarded today to the following: Mrs. Laura Lucas, 1105 North Carolina avenue. Joan Weber, 111 Fifth ' street Northeast. Ruth T. Hille, 406 First street Northwest. Lucy E. Pedelty, 19 North Georgia avenue. Mrs. S. E. Bishop, Rudd. Mrs. Harvey Neuman, G South Monroe avenue.

The stapler converts copper wire into staples and inserts them into the sole and shoe so that no metal is exposed. The stitcher, besides other latest inventions, has an automatic appliance for waxing the threat at a constant temperature. The trimmer is provided with a guard to protect the upper part of the heel when used and also is made adjustable to any thickness required. A novel feature of the grinder is its ability to collect all of the dust created in the operation by drawing the air thru a tank of water. The burnisher ia .provided with brushing and polishing surfaces to obtain the finest type of finish on the shoes.
