BANK WILL PHY OUT EASTER EGG HUNT AT PARK TIPTON, INDIANA; Warrior R 4, 1895, at post office at Tipton, Ind., under TUESDAY EVENING, APRIL 15, 1030 eceives New lit •' Honor Kiwanis Club Sponsors the Event and Offers Prizes , \ to Lucky Finders. *|, FOR ALL CHILDREN this . v Hopes for. the paving of the Hub Highway east of Tipton, through Elwood to connect with the Alexandria road, have gone glimmering fo;r; this year, it ;is believed. Up to within the last few days the impression was that the state highway commission would award the : contract for this improvement at the ' next letting which is now scheduled for the first week in May but word from the -commission dispells these hopes. It is said that the road will not be sold earlier than next fall and that it is possible the .date for letting the contract will be postponed until jthe firrft of next. yrar. It makes little difference •whether the road is sold next fall or the first of 1931 as no work would be started this year, if the contract should be awarded fall: ; Just what has caused the delay; is not known for certain. - Early- this year a report of the finances of the commission indicated that some of , the road building would be curtailed. This may be the real reason for postponing the improvement of the Hub. Another reason may be the difficultyr in getting a route from Hobbs to Elwood which is acceptable to the commission engineers. This was understood to be the cause of delay early in the winter but weeks and weeks have passed since then and it appears that the commission has had plenty of time to Complete all details for ; the improvement this year. ' The Huh east of Tipton is not in the best of condition "due to the fact that work on the road lias been eased up in anticipation of improving the highway. Now it will be necessary, for the highway force to put more materia^ on the road and work it more.

Mrs: Blanche (Devault) Franklin, accompanied by ; a friend, Mrs. Bailey of Elkhart, are in Tipton, visiting at" the. home of the former's mother, Mrs. Elizabeth Devault of South West street. They will visit there .for, several days. ' • Beecher Franklin, the husband of Mrs. Blanche Franklin, Is at this time in California, having been sent there by the Curtis publishing Company to train a group of salesmen who are working in that state. Mr. Franklin has been with the Curtis- Publishing Company for some time and is making good, recently having been promoted to supervisor of sales groups in different parts jot the COUUty. He and his wife reside in Chicago. CoMpfetf* Tbontoa Drain. , E. R. Edwards, veteran-ditch - contractor was heye from Curtts- THle.Tuesday .attending to busi- -:aa*s- matters, and greeting friends.

A receiver, will be appointed to dis tribute the assists of the institution and while no definite statement has been given out,-it is be- I A 1 1 lievedj all depositors will be paid in full. This will be good news for many who placed, their money in. the bank as several \|have been ^worried over the outcome of the affair. I It is said the assets of the bank ire sufficient to take care of the depositors and that it is possible ther£~ ;will be sufficient to safeguard the interests of the owners. The bank was regarded as solvent when, it was closed, the action being taken hyi the owners to protect their depositors when withdrawals became . heavy. With- irawals followed rumors that, were '• mysteriously started a few days -before Fred Martz, cashier of the jbank, decided to take voluntary; measures toward liquidation. It is said that notices were placed ! in some Arcadia homes, warning depositors to get out 'heir money. Such measures are unlawful and legal action can be taken, j When it became evident that many depositors w*ere frightened, .he bank officials.' took prompt i-ction. jThey may suffer financial 'oss themselves but it appears that they have /' protected their friends j and, depositors!. Arcadia v'nee'ds a bank. The town is one of the . substantial lommuhities of the state. There "s enough business, to demand a jank. A group of responsible cit- •zens sliould take steps' to providej .he community with adequate lanklng facilities.' It is believed some action along this line will be started.
