Wife Boyle Unfair With Grumpy Mate By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) - I don't know what's going on in your apartment, but in our apartment We're having a battle of the books. Right now it looks like it may be a long war. Every three years or so — to please the landlord and annoy the spiders—we have our four-room tenement castle repainted, whether it needs it or not Over a quarter of century my wife, Frances, and I have developed a formula to divide the chores. For example, by an unwritten tenet of our marital code, she takes down my library books and dusts them before the painters come. After the painters leave, it is my job to put the books back on the shelves. As anyone who has gone through this procedure knows, my wife has the better of t-hiic hnr. Any can mill down books. That's easy. It is putting them back that is hard work. First, there is the big argument about which books can be discarded. When our place was repainted not long ago, my wife filled up four boxes of volumes which she denounced as "useless trash." After carefully reviewing her choices, I said, "Okay, you can throw away three/* "Three boxes?" she asked hopefully. "Of course not! Three books." "But you've got more than a thousand books. The way they're piling up, they'll crowd us out of house and home." "Then throw out the sofa," I told her. "Throw out the television set" The trouble with putting back books is that for every five you place back on the shelf you find one that you must sit down and thumb through. Not later. Right then. Recently my wfe issued an ultimatum after finding no place to put down the breakfast dishes except on n collection of speeches by Daniel Webster and a copy of Taine's "History of English Literature." "This isn't a home—it's a literary junkyard," she said. "I want you to promise that this weekend you'll do nothing but put back your books—and really concentrate on it." I reluctantly put down a life of Jesse James I was browsing in, held up my hand in the Boy Scout pledge, and promised that on my honor I. would do my best. At bedtime next Sunday night my wife found me lying on the floor looking at the illustrations in a purple-covered old book, "Sins of New York." Jumping up guiltily, I showed my wife the weekend hadn't been wasted. During the two days I had managed to fill up one entire shelf with books. Somehow this failed to impress Frances. Oneida Club To Attend ro Grid Tilt ONEIDA—The regular meeting of the Oneida Lions Club was held at the Presbyterian Church Monday, Thirty-six members were served a steak dinner by the church women.

A committee composed of Robert Hannam, John Skender, Maynard Adams and Vernon Reed was appointed to organize the project. The Butler Manufacturing Co. of Galesburg loaned motion pictures showing types and designs of commercial buildings produced by the company for use ,around the world. These films were in color.
