HANLONTOWN, March 28.-Fire destroyed the home of Mr. and Mrs. Bert, Myhres, three miles southeast of here, about .7:30 o'clock 1 'last evening. The blaza originated from a defective chimney and was discovered in the attic. Some of the contents of the structure were saved. Neighbors and the chemical apparatus from here arrived too late to save the house. A house on this same location was destroyed by fire four years ago. Mr. Myhres is a son-in-law of R. M. Hall, Mason City. RELATREClDS STANDASSAULTS Iowa State Wins Honors at · Carnival; Glass Ties Tolan's Mark. AUSTIN, Tex., March 28. UP)-- '· Practically all the Texas relay records withstood assaults from a fresh crop of athletes in the seventh annual relay carnival here Friday. In one event, the 100 yard dash, the wind proved a help. Peyton Glass, 19-year-old sophomore from Oklahoma A. M., twice tied Eddie Tolan's recognized world-mark of 95-10 seconds for the century. At that time he barely beat John Hass of Minnesota. Gloss Wins for Aggies. Glass bad a big day. His performance as anchor man on the 880 yard relay team gave the Oklahoma Aggies victory in that event. Texas schools came out second best in their duel with the Oklahomans and middlewestcrners. Besides the Oklahoma-Aggies, teams which won the relay races were Kansas, Marquette, Iowa State, Northwestern, and the Pittsburgh, Kansas Teachers. Ithea Sets Record. Hugh Rhea, Nebraska, heaved the shot 51 feet, 2% inches to beat Jim Bausch's old record by 2^-5, feet. John Russell of Polytechnic institute of Ifeoria, 111., beat Tom Poor's 1925 record by one eighth of an inch, in clearing the bar at 6 feet, 4% inches. Tom Warne of Northwestern, bolder of the relay record in the pole vault, was beaten by Lansriid of Drake, who didn't come near the record. MICHIGAN APPEARS AS SWIM CHAMP _. CHICAGO. March.28,.UP)--Mich- 4 igan, ruler of the Big TeTTwaveB, to- T day stood out as the heir apparent to the National Collegiate indoor swimming championship.

With favorable weather continuing and the Great Lakes nearly free of ice, preparations now are being made for the opening of navigation for the carrying of ore, the state's largest product, to eastern ports. Business leaders of the country are forecasting an increase in several industries and hopes are held by mining men in the Lake Superioy district, where approximately 65 per cent of the iron ore of the country is mined, that dcman4 for the product will increase from the more important consumers, buHdinsr construction companies, railroads and automobile manufacturers. While the 1930 season did not show as large shipments as the rec-. ord-brealdng year of 1929, the total was more than 46,000,000 tons, which was regarded by mining men as "good" considering 1 the general · business conditions. Mining men here 'are not in a position to estimate the ore production for the LaJte Superior district this year, but hope for a general increase in de-' iriand as the season advances.
