Manual Training Dept Projects for the first six weeks in t£e Manual Training department are well under way. With a class of over thirty pupils it has been necessary 'the work into two I The-.beginning students have been required "to make a project where simple operations are involved. The purpose of this is two-fold. It teaches the beginners correct manipulation of tools and gives them a chance to show their ability ana proceed to a more difficult pioject. The ability of the beginning group ranges considerably in that some have had elementary work in the rural schools while others are taking up manual training for the first time. In the advanced group, made up mostly of freshman class members and pupils that have had previous work in the school shop, the projects are a bit more complicated to make. Modernistic, two-tone bookends have appealed to the eyes of some four or five students as useful projects. Two individuals are making medicine cabinets, while others are spending URGE YES VOTE The following plea has been handed to us to print in connec tion with the election: To our fellow Town People: We, a few of the business men of Lenox, wish to say we hav given our approval to the prop osition of buying the city lake property, to come up at the election, Friday. We find we will pay less to buy now than to continue to lease the land we have, and we ask our friends among the citizens to vote yes on the ballots Oct. 4. O. L. Davis, G. L. Goodale, L. <F.

The Lenox Tigers will get a good try-out Friday night when the Afton team comes here for a football game. Afton won fron Clearfleld 13 to 7 and Clearfield gave Bedford an awful drubbing. Lenox tied with Orient and Afton beat Orient. What is in the cards for Lenox remains to be seen. The game will be a night game, starting at 8 o'clock. Come out and '.bring someone with you and be prepared to make a noise. Lenox has shown some wonderful improvement during the past two weeks, says Coach Gaer. With no game scheduled for last week the Corning team was invited over for a practice game and the coaches worked on their men as the game progressed, a thing that cannot be done during a regular game. Lenox had no difficulty in handling the Corning outfit for the second time and Coach Gaer is well pleased at the spirit they are showing. Some shake ups have made i nthe Lenox team some new figures will be suited up Friday night, weather promises to be and it should be a GAME. registesr as much as 120 degrees in the shade.

First Grade The seatwork material has arrived and the first graders are kept busy working with it. Mrs. Buxton and Mrs. Leonard were visitors last week. Edward Haering has been absent on account of illness. Second Grade are studying their number DIAGONAL MAN HERE TO OPEN SECOND HAND STORE Mike Katz of Diagonal has rented the building formerly occupied by the Reed harness and shoe shop and is fixing it up to be used as a second hand We rolled out into Arizona and saw sand, rock, mountains, cactus and desolation a.s far as the eye could see. We traveled lor miles without seeing a road or a car—nothing but parched grass and railroad stations. In New Mexico we saw houses made of sun-dried brick, with poles laid across the top and covered with hay. A gunny sack was used as a door and the cooking was done in a kettle in the yard. I got one good photo of such a dwelling but there was one that beat what I have described but I couldn't get a picture of it. We got into El Paso, Tex., at night and it is a real western town. Arrived at Cisco in the morning and took a bus to Breckridge, an oil town. Here we met a real boomer for Texas. He said to my friend that they had the soil and only needed water and they could raise anything. My friend replied that all Hell needed water. Arrived in Menola where I was met by my daughter and a friend drove us to Tyler, a real oil town in eastern Texas, where things move and move fast. I went out to the cotton fields to learn the cotton situation. It's sure poverty in the extreme. Here are large plantations rented out to white people. This one had 4,000 acres rented in cqttoii grower has over two bales of cotton to sell he is assessed a tax of $10 a bale for selling it. He pays $5 a bale for baling and $10 an acre for rent of the ground. The landlord gets $5 an acre for letting it lay idle, or four or five thousand dollars for idle land. The cotton farmer builds his own house from money he has borrowed from the government. It is barn siding and when he builds it, it belongs to some one else. The negro doesn't pick all the cotton. Most of it is done by the white man, down on his knees, crawling along from morning to night for .a week or ten days. He sells his cotton at a price fixed by the govern ment. In eastern 12 cents a pound, west Texas, it is They claim this Texas it i At five method of Cisco, cents. Corn-Hog Men Vote this Month )n New Program Definite Details Will Be Published Soon, Report Although definite details of the plan for holding the referendum have not yet been re-, ceived, corn-hog producers will be asked to vote this month on whether they wish the corn- log program continued in 1936. According to information received from the Agricultural Adjustment Administration, the situation this year might easily result in another period of low corn and hog prices. The drouth of 1934 took corn and hog supplies far below the levels planned by the AAA and cooperating farmers, according to Gerald B. Thorne, head of the Division of Livestock and Feed Grains. The adjustment program normally would have made a smaller but profitable adjustment. In 1936, Mr. Thorne said, the adjustment program needed to hold corn supplies In balance.

WORK TO BE DONE ON GYMNASIUM FLOOR The school board has voted to refinlsh the floor in the gymnasium building and will begin at once. The floor will be thoroughly cleaned and sanded and then a finish coat will be applied, covering the entire playing floor. It will be an almost permanent finish and will not be slippery. This finish can be scrubbed as it is water proof. patches of from 7 to 10 acres. The government loaned them money to farm with and built a house and buy a mule and plow.

In 1932 it was 25c a pound. They then cut the acreage to half and cut priees to half. Sure a money maker. I was a guest in different homes. Corn bread seemed to predominate. No butter. A 25 pound sack of flour costs $1.60 and they said it was too high to eat. Corn picking is finished and corn, what little there is, s selling at 25c. Not many had any to sell. The Bankhead law s about as popular in the south as a rattlesnake would be in your bed. My heart goes out in sympathy for these poor people who, are being trampled under foot ike they were not human. Think of this- in America! I went through the eastern Texas oil field. It is 80 miles long and six wide. After leaving Tyler, Tex., I went on to Texarkana and took the Crowfly route through Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri, to Kansas City and got home Friday evening after having covered 6,225 miles and going through 17 states with 25 of the best conductors anyone ever met. But when the sun came up Saturday morning I thanked God that I was in Iowa, the most beautiful state will be and hog .____ r In past years when corn was plentiful and cheap, as it apparently will be this year, the tendency has been to raise more hogs because hogs were scarce and high- priced. As hog numbers increased, the supply exceeded demand and prices dropped again to low levels. This situation developed after the drouth of 1894 and again after the war when hog numbers were low and corn was plentiful and cheap., Following both 1894 and 1921, hog slaughter increased 40 percent in the two years following. Then farmers had more hogs than they could sell at a reasonable price. The conditions of this year coincide with the .beginnings of other disastrous cycles, said Mr. Thorne. By folding corn production to a reasonable level and not allowing hog production to exceed normal demands, farmers may avoid that cycle. in the union. ELI WILT True"—O. G. DCS Moines.
