Sheriff Be McAllister said he did not have i single clue to her identity. j The body of the brown - haired girl, believed to be between 18 and 25 years of age, was found Friday morning about 15 yards from a seldom - traveled county road three miles north of here. Carl Getchell, a county engineer | employe, checking the county road, j told Sheriff McAllister he saw the body sprawled in a wooded area., The girl was attired in a light blue cotton flannel nightgown and red lowheeled shoes. Officers described the victim as I being five feet, four inches in; height and weighing about 130 pounds. Sheriff McAllister said she had been “brutuallv stabbed to death” and that the face carried what appeared to be at least 20 stab marks. Dr. B. H. Hathaway, Wyandot County coroner, said the women was killed “with some sharp instrument” but declined to say officially it was homicide until he gets an autopsy report.

LANSING UP)—County clerks got a jar today. Atty. Gen. Frank Millard held that they may not keep any part of the new §2 marriage license fee, but must turn it in to the county treasury. Millard also held that county clerks may not impose an additional fee for administering oaths in connection with marriage license fees. The questions were raised by Aud. Gen. John B. Martin, whose staff must audit county operations. The only qualification in Millard's opinion concerned, those clerks who receive both salaries and fees under a resolution of their boards of supervisors. The attorney general said MRS. LOUIS N. SCHEMMEL Funeral services for Mrs. Louis N. Schemmel were held at 9 a m. today at St. Joseph's Church with burial in Holy Cross Cemetery. Father Bertin Harrington, O. F.

Sprightly humor marked his talk. The professor said a distinct relationship exists between tit- music of the different periods. Any change in music means a change in social structure of that time, he noted. During the 18th century, the music was cold and rationalized as were the people The sales force will be increased ¡ 0f that age, while in the 19 th by tw’o and additional men will be employed in the stock room as result of the expansion.

Plans for the expansion were ; started over a year ago. Norton said that in connection with the reconditioning industry j to be set up at Charlotte, N.

Exquisite Music During the Elizabethan Age. which was England’s most glamorous period, the music reflected the exuberance and joy of the daily life of England's people. It was created during the time of England’s greatest strength under the strong personality of Queen Elizabeth the First. This music was naive and exquisite with no vulgar display. It told of the physical aspects of life which the people loved. The 16th century was an age when a person was not fully cultured if he didn’t understand and enjjoy music, the professor explained. The people were expected to read and sing their parts at a first glance of the music. Many servants were required to have an ability for music, and distinction of class disappeared during the singing Flowing Madrigals The music of the Elizabethan Age lasted for 35 years, beginning in 1588 aud ending in 1620. During 1 his time some 2.000 madrigals were printed, besides the numerous madrigals which have never been found. A madrigal was a piece of music in the different parts which were usually written by the music master of the house during tb# day for the evening’s entertainment. Each part was written on a different sheet. In this way, the singer could not follow the other person’s part. A madrigal must be absol- utely free and flowing while semg, ‘‘Although this period was very snort and the music is not well known today, it is unrivaled among music. This music expressed every kind of mood and the nature of realism,” Prof. McGeoch concluded.

Angwall and Lawrence Belanger of Marinette gained port at Manistique this morning after escaping from a southeast blow on northern Lake Michigan last night that nearly swamped one of the two fish tugs they were bringing to Marinette after a summer’s fishing on Lake Superior. Capt. Angwall was sailing the Four Brothers while Belanger was sailing the Atlantis. They were caught on the rut from St. Ignace to Manistique, so they had to battle high waves and strong winds. Capt. Angwall made a run for Manistique to enlist aid after Belanger’s tug became disabled 25 miles from Manistique. Waves smashed in the after cabin and conked out the engine in Belanger’s boat. He was towed safely Into Manistique and both tugs remained there while repairs were being made. Mr. and Mrs. Jack V.

Dr. loss of the marriage license fee | would be an unconstitutional reduction of their compensation j during their term of office. But, Millard said, the resolution of the boards of supervisors under which they obtain fees would have to be carefully drawn to permit them to keep the fees. He said he would have to inspect each individual board resolution before he could rule specifically in those cases. If there is such a loophole, Millard said, it would only exist un­ till the end of 1954. He said that new county clerk terms begin Jan. 1, 1955, and that thereafter there could be no question but that the clerks would be barred from receiving the marriage license fees. lion, Miss Mary Bink and Miss , Chicago, who until now have been Josephine Ryan. the Ford authorized reconditioner The active pallbearers were John | for the Chicago district in the state of Illinois.
