Millions of bushels stored on the farms, not knowing what to do with It, while 600 miles east folks go hungry. As an example—Wisconsin nas a state law compelling the serving of cheese with every meal costing 25 cents or more. * • » Within a few blocks 6n College street are more dogs than have been "icensed by owners throughout the mtire city.

Knot) Jlmmie DeZellar is only 11 years old, but he won a year's subscription by topping all of last Saturday's grid guessers. And boy, oh boy, was Saturday'a panic. Jlmmie missed only one game, the Wisconsin upset of Northwestern. He picked Purdue to crack Ohio State, Nebraska to take Kansas, and Boston to take Indiana, which were about, the only really tough ones, and which spelled plenty of trouble for everybody. As for your old friend, N. O. Knot, he feels pretty good. He annexed a dollar from Rock Island, Illinois, at two bits a game, and also got back a buck from Mrs. N. L., which he lost last week. Not that we advocate gambling, we're just telling what happened. A. V. Larson of Algona got in the winners, taking second. He missed ;he Purdue victory, and picked Northwestern and Wisconsin to le. And then came the scramble for third place. There were a whole pile of boys who missed two games completely. And when the smoke of battle cleared away, the winner of third place was Delmar Cooper, ^MARCH OF TIME MB.KfcMZ.Orr. •r THE BDITOU or TOO "BY THE SWORD" HE LIVED AND DIED SALT LAKE CITY, Utah: John Deering, 39, had spent 17 years In jail and hated it When he was arrested In Hamtramtk, Mich., last July as a robbery suspect, Michigan authorities wanted to jail him again. But John Deering did not want to take a 15-year jail sentence In Michigan, so he confessed to the murder of Oliver R. Meredith Jr., In a robbery at Salt Lake City two months before. Extradited to Utah and tried for first-degree murder, he stolidly maintained that he was a habitual criminal, would be better dead. The judge agreed. Utah law gave him the choice of being hanged or shot by a firing squad. "J. prefer to be snot," said John Deer- ng. In Salt Lake City's death house last week Gunman Deering explained that he chose a firing squad :ause "when I was a kid raising hell everyone told me I'd end up on the gallows, so I thought I'd ool them. Also there Is an old say- ng I like: "Live by the sword and die by the sword. ' " n to the prison courtyard, strap- One dawn John Deerign was tak- ped in a chair, a cap over his head, a target over his heart At Sheriff S. Grant Young's orders, five deputies raised their rifles and John Deering got what be asked for. MM BRINGS who nosed out Julian Chrlgchllles and Percy Kuhn by & small margin, others wno missed two games were thus near the leaders were Jim Murtagh, LeRoy Nolle, Arnold Doming of Mallard, Iowa, and H. W. Hollandsworth. I should also mention Miss Ivan Ocean, a cousin of I. M. Wright from Lone Rock, who missed only two games. This thing gets better from week to week. In the next bracket of guessers were Woody Cook, Durwood Baker, Bud Zender and Hazel Seeley, who again bettered her husband's guesses. This wife and hubby stuff is liable to get Mr. Knot into a plckle- ment before the Season Is over. But Erma and A. L. Benschoter of Lu- Verne each missed three, so the matter will have to rest there until next Saturday. We won't give you all the stand- Ings, but we will say that among those who missed FOUR games were experts and prize winners of past such as Willis Cotton of Lone Rock, Ken Miller of West B6nd, Bud Morck, Jesse Blanchard, Jr. of Lone Rock and Ora Larson. Well, just two more weeks to guess, and here are the games for this coming Saturday. Please bear In mind that Mr. Knot is only hav- Ipg fun, too, and doesn't know any more about matters than an Eskimo, and tha( scores he picks are merely stabs In the dark. Use your own judgment; all entries must be in the office or the mail by Saturday noon. Three subscription prizes, as usual. Wisconsin (13) at U. C. L. A. (7). College of Pacific (6) at Chicago (13). Pittsburgh (20) at Nebraska (0). Ohio State (7) at Illinois (7). Iowa (6) at Indiana Cl,) Northwestern (7) at Michigan Minnesota (7) at Notre Dame (13)* Iowa State (7) at Kansas State (6).
