Quarton returned on Thursday from a trip to the British Isles, which he made In company with his son. Sumner of Cedar Rapids, during the past ten or twelve weeks. Several weeks were spent in England visiting numerous cities and places where the Quarton ancestors lived. The judge spent roost of two days in the British Museum. Two of the particularly interesting things which he mentioned seeing there were the Magnn Carta an dthe Rosetti Stone. One of the high lights of the trip WAS a visit to Guernsey, a tiny Island. only a third the size of Kossuth county, where the Guernsey cattle originated. The judge has been raising Guernsey cattle on his : farm for years and can tell you most anything about them so it was a real pleasure for him to see the beautiful little Island from which they came. Today Iowa has many times the number of Guernseys on the island and other dairy states have likewise. The trips crossing was very enjoyable with only a little rough weather, none of which bothered the judge.

The game is to start at about 7 p. m. The twin D-ball bill tonight, feat tiring the Barry-Pioneer clash in the other half of the program, winds up the regular season in the munic ipal league. Should White Rose win it will be the undisputed champion of the league. A win for the Hub Clothiers will put them into a tie for first with the oil station men In that event a play-off will probably be arranged. Barry's, now in third place, can tie for second with the Hub, should the latter lose and Barry's win its contest with the down-trodden, but every struggling Pioneers. Last week Hub Clothiers was booted out of a possible tie for first place by the Barry's team which beat them 5 to 4.
