Despite small squads — averaging 23 players in football, for instance — the Monmouth teams of this period won 75 per cent of their games in football, basketball, baseball and track. One of the best of these teams was the 1931 football team, a 25- man squad which played a 10- game schedule and was one of the few gridiron teams in the nation to go undefeated that year. The former athletes who will be honored, their class year, address and sports: William F. Boothby, 1934, Monmouth, football, basketball and baseball; William Bell, 1933, Monmouth, football, basketball, baseball; J.

D. at Columbia University. field, as well as, "How to Determine Corn Harvesting Loses" behind picker or combine. The corn seed dealers in Warren County under the direction of Abram Hornback, president of the Association, Oct. 5 harvested 140 different plots (70 different hybrids and 70 different check plots). Each plot was 557 feet long and two rows wide. Each of the 140 different plots were picked up from the combine brought to the silo, where they were weighed, moisture taken and computed for yield. The corn averaged between 20 and 25 per cent moisture. The lowest moisture was 17.5 per cent and the highest was 26 per cent. Cite Average As to yields, the 70 different check plots all planted to the same numbered hybrid averaged 137.6 bushels per acre. The highest plot (of the checker corn) yield 144.7 bushels and the lowest was 131.2 bushels. The 70 different hybrids averaged 125.5 bushels per acre. The highest yielding variety was 148.5 bushels and the lowest was 104 bushels per acre. Two rows of each hybrid were left standing for the Thursday field meeting and yields from the different hybrids were posted by the seed companies. The day's program was ar ranged by Stanley Sims, Warren County farm adviser TALKING IT OVER — Stanley Sims (seated center), Warren County farm adviser, discusses yield results of different corn hybrids with seed firm representatives Thursday at Bruce Killey farm, north of Roseville, where plot demonstra­ tion was conducted.

Burl Ives, Walker, Two Men In a Rait, Have Crete of 70 By ERSKINE JOHNSON Hollywool Correspondent Newspaper Enterprise Assn. From a big barge in tow of a grunting tug, they look like a pair of ants (one overfed) adrift at sea in a scooped out jelly bean. For the third day, 300-pound Burl (Big Daddy) Ives and young Robert Walker are wedged into a tiny rubber raft hardly big enough for Mickey Rooney. The raft drifts and bobs crazily in now-you-see-it-now-you-don't fashion on the big, cresting ocean swells Following on the barge is a full movie crew of 70 men. The raft is the smallest "stage" for a movie since Alfred Hitchcock made "Lifeboat." But never in all movie history are so many contributing to so few out here where the flying fish play and the swordfish dance the twist on their tails. THE BARGE following the little raft is big enough for football practice, and the 70 men have enough equipment to film the Normandy invasion, As master of everything, afloat and ashore, Director Josh Logan said: "Follow that raft." The sequence was simple enough —as it read in the script — for "Ensign Pulver," the sequel to the hilarious Navy comedy "Mr. Roberts." Burl Ives, the skipper of an old Navy bucket, falls overboard. Robert Walker, as Ensign Pulver, jumps in after him with a two-man rubber raft. Before the ship's company of misfits can rescue them, they are swept out to sea in Democratic Meet Scheduled Monday MONMOUTH — Mrs. Melvin Siverly of Precinct II and Mrs. George Keister of Lenox Township, with their committees will serve as hostesses when the Warren County Ladies Democratic organization hold their fall meeting Monday evening.

Scot Harriers Face Beloit On Saturday MONMOUTH — Monmouth College varsity cross-country runners will place their victory skein on the line Saturday in a home meet against Beloit College which will be part of the Monmouth Homecoming weekend festivities. Coach P. O. Smith rates the Beloit squad, which defeated Knox and lost to St. Olaf and Carleton, as "about the same as last year" when they defeated the Scots at Beloit, Wis. Steadily improving performances from sophomores Lawrence Birdoll and Douglas Carlson inspire Smith to optimism about the outlook for Saturday, however. Frosh to Have Debut Monmouth's freshman cross­ country runners, also coached by Smith, will make their debut Saturday in a home meet against Beloit. The meet, to be run at the start of the Monmouth-Beloit football game, will be part of the Homecoming weekend activities. Ten freshmen, five of them cross - country lcttcrwinners in high school, joined the squad when it was formed a week ago. Limited by Midwest Conference rules to three meets, the freshmen will have a second home meet against Knox Oct. 19, and a third meet is yet to be scheduled. The five members of the team who lettered in the sport in high school are Ardcn Gregory, Gary Payne, William Smith, Frederick Tecmnn and James Earle. Newcomers to the sport are Paul Swenson, Steven Richard, Michael Howell, Stephen Turpie and Allan Wibiral. Patrick Kurivial will serve as manager for the team. MONMOUTH Roiamary Israal CorrMpondant S01 N. H St. Phon* < 34-4721 for Nawa FOR MISSED COPIES PHONE 734-4121 Before 6:30 Scots Out For Victory Over Beloit MONMOUTH — Monmouth College Football Coach Joe Pelisek hopes to "jell" a promising oi- fensive attack that has been unable to produce a victory in three games this season Saturday when Monmouth faces Beloit College. The Midwest Conference contest will be played at Monmouth before a Homecoming weekend crowd and will give the Monmouth student body their first opportunity to see their team at home. Because of Midwest Conference scheduling, Monmouth's game with Cornell Sept. 28 was played the weekend before classes bgan. Pelisek's Scots, 0-3 with losses to Cornell, Ripon and Grinnell, face a defense-minded Beloit crew. Beloit, 1-1-1, will be attempting to rebound from an 8-7 defeat last Saturday at the hands of undefeated St. Olaf. Monmouth's offense has varied from an almost straight aerial attack against Cornell and Ripon to a predominantly running game against Grinnell. Saturday Pelisek hopes to get the Scot offensive game operating smoothly. Pass defense, one of Monmouth's weak spots, was another matter given heavy attention during the week. Probable starting lineup for the Scots: left end, Deegan; left tackle, Allison; left guard, Bianucci; center, Garrett; right guard, Stcphani; right tackle, Paascli; right end, Stergulz; quarterback, Taylor; halfback, Tucker; halfback, Crum; fullback, Keener.

At the meeting, the Board of Education hopes to acquaint the district's residents with the urgent need for improved and expanded high school facilities, how the proposed solution was arrived at, and the cost of constructing a new high school building. Also, election procedures will be reviewed. Election Is Near Special election upon the school building program has already been set for Saturday, Oct. 26.

The students and their teacher, Mrs. Harold Nelson, have studied water pollution problems; soil and water conservation measures; wildlife control and many other conservation problems. Many students are completing projects on certain facets of conservation that have interested them during the unit. Some of these projects consist of model farms, maps of Illinois resources, farm pond scrapbooks, clays and others. A film has been shown each week to the class, illustrating the problem pupils have been studying. Major class projects have included a field trip conducted by Don Kessinger of the Warren County ASC office who showed the students many conservation projects of Warren County. In connection with the field trip, Dr. Milton Bowman, assistant professor of biology at Monmouth Col- demonstrated the experi-' mental fish hatchery operation at Citizens Lake. Exhibits Film Dr. Bowman also showed a film to the class Oct. 8 to explain the operation of raising channel catfish for commerce. The last fish project was a fish shocking experiment at Earp 's Lake Oct. 9. The demonstration was organized by Don Kessinger in connection with the State Conservation Department. More than 200 interested students and teachers from Warren Couny witnessed the demonstration. rious fire hazard. Architectural and engineering studies have indicated that the only portions of the building which could be salvaged are the one-story center portion of the school and, possibly, a part of the gym. As the one-story center section of the building represents less than 10 per cent of the total space needed for a modern high school, it is estimated that the cost of tearing down, remodeling, and enlarging the present school would almost equal the cost of cocstructing an entirely new building. "As a result, the Board of Education unanimously recommends the construction of a completely new building. The new four-year high school would be located on the 18.5-acre site now owned by the school district and upon which the athletic field is situated. "The cost of the new school would be financed by issuing $892,000 of school building bonds, to be retired over a 17-year period. The district's tax rate would be increased an average of only 18 cents per $100. This would amount to $10.80 per year additional taxes on a home valued for tax purposes at $6,000 or 32 cents per acre on farm land assessed at $180 per acre. "The district's total tax rate, now lower than 98 per cent of all other Illinois School districts maintaining 12 grade school systems, would continue to be the lowest in the area." A detailed brochure is being prepared by the Board and will be distributed soon to all homes in the school district.

The barge, at 100 tons, was loaded down with equipment and towed by a tug to the island as part of an armada which included two other tugs, two large passenger boats, four outboards and three speed boats.
