Afton really gave more competition than the score indicates for a fast man in the backfield was dangerous whenever he got his hands on the ball. Lenox kicked off and in the first two plays Afton advanced the ball about 35 yards on long runs by their sprinter. After that the Lenox boys watched him and he got few chances to perform. At the end of the half Lenox was ahead 13 to 0. In the second half. Afton opened with a passing attack and in the third quarter scored a touchdown when their fast man got away for a forty yard run. ' Lenox tried a number of passes but did not complete many of them. Gordon, the Lenox player with the educated toe, got only two chances to punt. During the last several minutes of the game a number of Lenox substitutes were sent in to relieve the regulars and to give them some experience. Claire Ethington was sent in to replace' Rex Kirkman and on the first play dashed through the Afton line to nail his man for a loss. The game Friday night demonstrated several things about the Lenox team. We have a FAMOUS MAGICIAN WILL APPEAR HERE OCT. 21 Edward Rend, famous illusionist and niugicion, has been signed to appear in Lenox on the afternoon of October 21, says K. U. Parker, superintendent of the Lenox schools. The program will be given at the school house, according to present plans, but definite announcement will be made next week. Reno has been a well known magician for the past 35 years and during that time he has traveled all over the world, including India, Syria and Egypt, and he is well known to lyceum audiences throughout the country. He is constantly inventing new things in magic and illusion and also, in foreign lands, he has picked up many things not known to many profession- maim Must Die Says Court als. Reno performs his tricks while in ordinary evening dress and is so adroit as to escape detection in every case. The Time Table editor saw Reno work a number of years ago and he can testify that as an illusionist he is supreme and that as an entertainer he cannot be beaten. Only'Chance Left Is Appeal to U. S.

The backfield boys run low, with the heads down and they keep right on running after they hit something, thus adding extra yards on every play. The line is good. It has been well coached and the boys are in there fighting every minute of the game. The Afton team was a good illustration of what happens pre- now and must fix the date for his execution, not less than four weeks nor more than eight weeks from the time of the resentencing. Hauptmann's only chance, now, is an appeal to the United States Supreme Court. SERVICES AT PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH NEXT SUNDAY There will be services at the Presbyterian church next Sunday morning Rev.

With a fast man in the backfield the team was unable to get anywhere because the line did not hold. With Lenox it is the other way around. Tehre are as many star players on our line as there are positions and when they start through the backfield men have only to follow them. CORN-HOG COMMITTEE ATTENDED CONFERENCE IN AMES On Monday, Oct 7, the orn- Hog Committee of Taylor county attended an all day conference held at Ames. Corn - Hog 'Committeemen, and all county agents from every county in the state were present to learn many details of an economic nature that will effect the 1936 program.

Tulsa Girls to Play Here Mr. Parker reports that during the coaching school held in Des Moines last weekend it was decided that one of the Tulsa high school teams which has been state champion for the past two years, is planning a trip to Iowa for five games, and they will play the Lenox girls for one game.

Mrs. Phillips, Mrs. Haas and Waterworks Purchase f aestion Carried By a Large -* SUGGESTIONS ON SOYBEAN FEEDING IN NEW BULLETIN A new bulletiiig, "Feeding Soybeans," may be obtained from the office of ounty Agent Bedford, or the Iowa State College Extension Service, Ames. The bulletin contains suggestions for feeding both soybean grain and hay to livestock. This year Iowa farmers planted more than one million acres of soybeans. This acreage represents a five fold increase during the last two years. A summary states: The beans do not injure the flavor of milk or butter when they make up no more than of the bulletin one-third of the grain ration- are an efficient concentrated source of home grown protein —do not affect the quality of beef when properly fed — and are a satisfactory source of protein fOr brood sows during the gestation and suckling period. "The hay ranks with alfalfa and red clover as one of the best legume crops for dairy cattle—does not affect flavors o milk or butter if fed properly— provides a roughage comparing favorably with alfalfa—is valu able for wintering breeding ewes—and can be fed in limited amounts to horses and mules and to idle work animals in winter." Voters Also Approve Trustee Plan for the Utilities In a rather light election in vhich there was little excitement and few votes cast, an overwhelming majority was chalked up in favor of the three propositions sn omitted to the voters of Leno:-, last Friday. The proposition to buy the Baum 160 acrt farm where the akes are located, was approved by a vote of 329 to 37. The question of setting up a board of trustees for the electric light plant and system carried 313 to 53. A similar question, for setting up a board of trustees for'the water works system, carried by a vote of 317 to 46. A total of 377 votes were cast —about half the full voting strength of the town. There was so little excitement about the election that no one had he faintest idea whether the questions would be approved or rejected. The question of buying the Baum farm now goes to the town council. The council is not required to buy the land, even though the election favored it. It can use its own judgment in the matter as the election simply gave the council authority to go ahead with it. Lenox, was one of tors at the World the specta- Series this year as a guest of the Ford Motor company, according to word that has been received by his relatives here. Mr. Black, who is a Ford salesman, won the trip to the series for selling the largest number of Fords in the Omaha territory. He made the trip from Omaha on a special train.

"It may develop into a hobby that adds a wide field of rich enjoyment to life."

Almost all furniture on the market today is copied from or influenced by the designs of some historic period, even including many of the ultra-modern styles, and Miss Waugh believes that in order to buy furniture wisely, the purchaser must know .something of period styles. WAIT UNTIL GUESTS COME If you are serving turnips at a company dinner, wait until the guests have arrived to cook them ,is the advice of Miss Miriam Lowenberg of the foods and nutrition staff at Iowa State College. Turnips may be a delicate and attractive dish, if not overcooked. Miss Lowenberg advises peeling turnips, cutting them up, and storing them in the ice box until a short time before the meal They may then be drop- oed into boiling water and cooked uncovered for about 10 minutes If members of your family prefer 'a mild flavor, use a large amount of water in cook- mg, and if they like the stronger flavor, a small amount of water may be used, she says. Hard water often causes development of gray or brownish color during the cooking, so if soft water Is not available a ninch of cream of tartar added to the water will keep the vege- Mrs. Van Houten were visitors last week.

MUCH INTEREST SHOWN IN GOOCH CONTEST Local grocers report a great interest in the Gooch Flour Contest in which a Studebaker Champion DeLuxe Sedan is offered as first prize. This contest, which ends November 1st, is being entered into with a great deal of enthusiasm by many housewives who are trying Gooch's Best for the first time, and by a still larger number who are making first entries in the contest because of their earlier acquaintance with the fine quality of this all-purpose flour.

If you have already written your letter and entered it in this contest, and you think you can write a better onS now, you may send as many letters as you wish according to the rules of this contest.

TIMELY TOPICS Scholars of the French Acact- emy have just completed their great dictionary, begun 50 years ago In former editions the last word was "zut," said to be the equivalent of "go to the devil." The savants have added a new final word, "zygotati- que," an English adjective pertaining to the cheek bone. The new work will require three or more years for printing and binding. In recent years scientific researchers have given more credence to the Norwegian claim that Lief Erickson discovered America, which he named Vinland, about the year 1000. This claim has now been recognized by the United States government, and the President has designated Wednesday, October 9, as Lief Ericson Day and Invited its observance with suitable exercises. The government profited in two ways by the chain letter craze of a few monthes ago, which it banned as unlawful.
