Publish;'* in the Interest of Lenox and Surrounding Communities. VOLUME SIXTY-ONE LENOX, TAYLOR COUNTY, IOWA, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 1935 Proposition Explained by Local Men Who Have Studied It Edsewhere in this issue will be found a notice of an election called by the town council to determine the wishes of the voters of Lenox on three important questions. The first of these is the purchase of the land now known as the waterworks property. This 160 acres of land was leased by the town in 1923 at a rental of $10 an acre, plus taxes. This rental was based on 4 per cent income a valuation of $250 per acre, and the town was given an option to buy, at anytime within the first 25 years, at that price. This lease now has 39 years yet to run. The contact has been examined by several attorneys, including the attorney general of Iowa, and has Scoot, a Dog, Figured Things out for Himself Can a dog reason? That is t. 1 -." question that is bothering tin folks who live on east Temph street, and they have good reason to think that a clog can figure things out. About a month ago a small terrier, owned by J. B. Wood, was run over by a car and one hip was. broken and the other badly bruised. For a week or two the dog remained in thr basement at the Wood home, uu til the bruised leg healed enoug;< so he could use it. Scoot theii got about on three legs but thi,- manner of locomotion put too .nuch of a strain upon the still tender broken bone. For the past couple of weeks ne has been astonishing everyone in the neighborhood by walking on his front feet. He will hobble along on the three sound legs for a few stops, then flip his hind quarters into the air and proceed on the two front legs. He has been seen to walk halt; a block in this manner without touching his hind legs to the ground. Mr. Wood says Scoot figured it out for himself as he had never been taught tricks of any kind. Lenox-Orient Opener Ended In 7 to 7 Tie PUBLIC MEETING TONIGHT (THURS.) As there has been considerable question as to the work- Ings of the plans that are to be voted on Oct. 4, the Lenox Chamber of Commerce has appointed a committee to arrange for a public mass meeting to be held this evening (Thursday). The meeting will be held in the Gymnasium building at 8 o'clock! There will be speakers present who will outline these plans and who will answer questions. Every citizen of Lenox is invited, and urged, to attend this meeting, hear the plans discussed, and ask questions about them.

Cows, sheep and goats been pronounced airtight. The town can either take up the option to buy or rent the land. Several Lenox men have interested themseleves in this matter to the extent of doing some figuring and the following figures and arguments were submitted to the Time Table for publication: Two courses are open to the own. First is to continue to ent. The rent is now $1600 per •ear and the taxes are $250. In 9 years this would amount to ;72,150.00, and at the end of hat time the town would own nothing and another lease would have to be drawn. If another ease could not be secured the ,own would lose the cost of dams and buildings totaling more than $40,000 in cost. Another serious question con fronts the town, say the mei who have been inquiring into jhe matter. If the town should 'or any reason, default in pay ment of rent, or should try ti abandon the contract, the holde of the lease could sue the towr and recover judgment and bond would have to be issued to pa it off. This would mean a direc tax on the property of the town As the matter now stands, thes men say, the lease is a continua Waterworks (Continued on page 4) • choke to death.

REIMER & ROLL PARTNERSHIP DISSOLVED The parntership of T. J. Reimer and A. L. Roll in the 1 oil business was dissolved Monday and the business passed into the hands of Mr. Reimer as sole owner. The partnership had existed about a year and a half. By the terms of the sale Mr. Reimer takes possession of all the property and book accounts and has assumed all liabilities. Mr. Roll has not said what he ,ntends to do but indicated that he would probably stay in Lenox. MORE STOLEN PROPERTY WAS FOUND THIS WEEK Four more blankets and some car tools that were stolen from cars parked near the circus ground two weeks ago, were found the first of the week. The tools were 'covered with a piece of tin in a depression alongside a telephone pole. The blankets, found Monday night, were hidden behind some raspberry bushes at the back of the Walter Ol>ell lot. The Q'Dell children found th? blankets and Marshal j c Pearson was notified. The blankets are now at.the O'Dell hpm£an4 m*y be.,p$ained by the 1 owners upon State Patrol Got Orders to "Crackdown" Ordered to Give Attention to School Buses Orders have been issued from the offices of the secretary of state, though John Hattery, chief of Patrol, to the Iowa Highway P'atrol, instructing the patrolmen to "crack down" on all traffic violators who disobey the law about passing school buses. Practically all schools throughout the state, both country and city, have now started, says a news release from the motor vehicle department, and the patrol has the important job of protecting the children while they are on the highways. Patrol men'are ordered to arrange their trips to cover as much territory as possible in the Neighborhood of rural schools and rural school bus routes during the hours when they are picking up and delivering the pupils. The Iowa law provides that no vehicle may pass a school buss while it is loading or unloading and this section of the law will be strictly observed. Patrolmen are instructed to take any violator of this section immediately to the nearest court, file charges, and inform him that the department will take Immediate action for temporary suspension of his operator's license. Another duty of the patol is to check all buses and make sure they are plainly marked on the rear so the public may recognize them, and to see that all drivers of such buses are properly licensed and have a full knowledge of the law. The law regulating speed in school zones will also be be strictly observed. Both Teams Missed Chances to Score and Win the Game The Lenox Tigers played a 7 to 7 tie game with Orient High here last Friday night as the opening game on the Lenox lighted field. A crowd of some 500 was present to see the game. The Lenox team showed plenty of offensive strength, with which Orient had difficulty in coping. Few season openers show as much "heads up" football as was displayed by the two teams. Lenox scored first, in the first quarter, and Orient followed suit shortly afterward, being assisted by a 15 yard penalty that came at a time when it hurt. Both teams made good the extra point by carrying the ball across the line. It would be difficult to pick outstanding players in the game. Naturally, the men who had had some experience showed up well, and this was expected of them. The inexperienced men did their best and after they learn something about the game it will be time to begin picking stars. Hayes played his usual good game and Schmitt, Dunbar, Gordon and Reed showed that they hadn't forgotten anything about the game during the summer vacation. Kirkman, playing his first game, showed promise for the future. . . Orient, as usual, brought a good team to Lenox and the Orient boys played it for all they Were worth. The half robbed them of a touchdown •and*'the end of the game robbed Lenox of a score. In either case a minute more of play would have been Cost of lighting the football field "totals $713.61, or about $80.00 more than was estimated. Eight poles cost $61.80 but it cost $100 to get them here. After they were here it was decided to add steps to them to make climbing easier. This cost $8.80 more. There were some incidentals that had not been figured in, also, that increased the cost to about $80 more than had been figured. Here are the figures: Electrical Equipment .. $458.08 Poles 61.60 Transportation of poles 100.00 Steps for poles 8.80 Incidentals 21.86 Labor * 63.27 V Total $713.61 Enough money, collected from season tickets and gate receipts of the Orient game, has been taken in to pay $125.00 on the cost of the lights. This money, which was advanced by the school board, will be paid back from the athletic fund and if the lighted field turns out to be as successful as it appears to be now, this money will be paid back in about two years. Corning recently installed a lighted football "field and has $1,800.00 invested in lights and equipment. Football (Continued on page five) BOY SCOUTS SPENT WEEK END IN CAMP Five Boy Scouts, Haldean Moyle, Jack Moore, Paul Jotae, Carlton Lewis and Donald Graham, accompanied by the scoutmaster I. G. Rrandels, went to Des Moines Friday afternoon to attend a state Boy Scout meeting held at the state fair grounds. Mr. and Mrs. Harold Ethington and family, Mr. and Mrs Orval Bassett and family and Mrs. Mary Moyle went up to De Moines and spent day with th day with the boys, who returned home with them that evening CHURCH CONSOLIDATION DEFEATED, SUNDAY A proposition to consolidate th Presbyterian and P. P. churches in Lenox on a plan worked out some time ago, was defeated when the members of the Presbyterian church voted almost two to one against the move. The proposition carried unanimously at the United Presbyterian church. At the Presbyterian church the vote was 23 for and 36 against. MASONIC HEAD VISITED HERE TUESDAY MORNING John T. Ames of Traer, Grand Master of Masons In Iowa, was a visitor In Lenox Tuesday morning . The visit jMis an informal one as Mr. Ames'wished to meet as many of the m>mb$rs a* P0£- slble an4 tp get Acquainted. He was in' Lenox about two hours. ARNOLD WALTER HAS CLOSED HIS GARAGE Arnold Walter has closed out his garage and tire business and expects to leave Lenox in the near future. He and Mrs. Walter will go to Quincy, 111., where oth will enter the Gem City usiness school. Arnold has jad some of this work and now vants to complete his training o he can get into some other kind of work. Although Arnold is a young man he is a veteran a business as he started 10 years ago, while still in High school. He weathered the depression and last year sold enough tires to entitle him to a trip to the Goodyear factory at Akron with all expneses paid by the Goodyear company. He las Had a good business and is jlosing out only because of his health and a desire to try some other kind of business. Music Groups In High School Now Organized Miss Sterns Tries a New Plan to Arouse Interest (By Margaret Carruthers) Adopting a new plan of seating in which effort can be rewarded by promotion, Miss Sterns has started the orchestra and glee club work. Students are seated in line according to the ability shown the previous day and each student tries to work up, chair by chair, to obtain the first position. There are 23 in the orchestra. New members are: violin, Mar- Complex Game, Jays Ccach Let Officials Do the Worrying About the Rules, However (By Coach Gaer) After several years of actual Jaying experience and of obser- ation, I am convinced that no one person can ever learn everything there is to know about the game of football. There axe numerous technicalities that a participant, must master before he can play the game well, taut it is possible for a spectator to enjoy a football game immensely if he understands only the fundamentals of the game. Before I take up the game itself, let me comment on the benefits to be derived from actual participation in the game. First of all, and probably most important, football is a great teacher of sportsmanship. Fielding H. Yost, director of athletics at the University of Michigan, says: "Sportsmanship is that quality of honor that desires always to be courteous, fair and respectful, and it is interpreted in the conduct of players, spectators, coaches and school authorities." Out in the game of life, man- making success can never be realized unless one has learned to practice the code of sports-, manship. Undoubtedly the greatest quality of sportsmanship is cooperation, and in the complex business and social order of today it is impossible for one to lead a normal life unless he, is filled with the spirit of cooperation; The success or failure of any football team depends largely upon the willingness of the boys to cooperate with each other, and any boy who is a member of a football squad is automatically exposed STONE BEING PLACED ON ROAD SOUTH Five carloads of crushed stone were received in Lenox the first of the week and trucks are now hauling it to the road south ol town. Surfacing of the road was started at a point about five miles south and continued on south to the corner. The work will then proceed in this direction. While it has not been announced, it is presumed that thr stone for the other end of th< road will be hauled from Sharps burg. We will soon have an all-weather road leading 10 miles oouth and wes.t to Sharpsburg. Next year it will probably be continued to either 148 on the west or No. 3 on the south. H. S. ENROLLMENT WAS INCREASED Two new students have enrolled in High school but at this time only one has started attending school. The one new student increases the total High school enrollment to 183, which is just one less than the record enrollment for the school.
