The bill was presented for the guidance of the finance committee, -.which is holding hearings on a measure passed recently*by the House. Hines opposed certain provisions j of the House measure which be said would result in an increased annual cost to the government of between SI SI,000,000 land $ He added that | his bill, ifjadopted, : would increase the cost about 820,000.- OftO land not more than $25,000,000. f • The House adopted Jan. 1, 1!>30, as the last date when disability would be presumed to havei been caused by war service.

Thomas is erecting at New Lancaster, had a narrow escape from injury Monday . afternoon about 2:30 when', a. miniature cyclone which preceded a downpour of rain, dipped into the building, razing the south .wall of the structure, twisting beams and ruining tlie iron sash. Contractor Thomas, who reported the unusual occurrence when he returned to Tipton Monday evening, skated that the lives of some of his men were endangj ered as they barely had time to scramble? down from the scaffolding when the wall collapsed Working on the walls at the time .were Clen Henry, Eb Heaton^ William Hoke, Omer Williams and Fred Curry. One of the. men called attention to a small dark funnel shaped cloud which was approaching from the west. A strong wind was coming with it with some rain and the men began to hastily leave the scaffolding, theijjast one barely reaching the ground when the wall collapsed. , The 'automobile of Mr. Thomas which was parked, near the building was whirled against the temporary office building erected on the grounds and slightly damaged. Small frail frame buildings standing near the wrecked building were not damaged in the least the twister seeming to dip down into the school building and then raise and disappeared in whirlwind southeast. £ jen. park, ij Whe'n the rain storm jcame Monday afternoon, ilL\\.

The rain of Monday which was badly needed was not sufficient to stop farm activities and ground breaking and corn planting- continued following the showers, with the exception of a few places in the low ".lands. Taking advantage of every minute at this time to get their, crops started, farmers in many .places stated they would not stop to vote, being satisfied to permit the selection of candidates to be made by persons not- so busy. Good men are running for offices on each ticket and while there is some interest in several of the races, the general apathy of the public has been "noticeable throughout the primary campaign. Polling places opened at 6 o'clock Tuesday morning and will remain open until 6 o'clock in the evening. The primary campaign'in this county has been one of the cleanest ever conducted there being no mud slinging. The claims by both sides that combinations were being formed in certain quarters 'or the purpose of trading votes was bitterly,denied by leaders in both parties. f When the polls opened Tuesday morning there was little activity. In Tipton a few scattering voters cast their ballots earf^ while on their way_to work. •~ At the polling places in Tip'tbh the prediction was made tha't results would be known by 10:30. or 11 .o'clock."
