Ever one who is interested in suci a thing is invited to attend. Anyone above the school iv,e may join in as many groups ;is he may desire.' The meeting of which will be held at night and as often as the circumstances or occupation of the members will permit. Methods of work or instruction in the groups will be largely informal and will be largely in the nature of a round table meeting, discussion method or open forum. In most subjects persons of varying degrees of previous education can work together without difficulty. This work is being promoted by the government. There will be absolutely no charge for the work and there need be no expense to the students for books or material, except in certain courses that might be selected. In some few subjects there may be some small incidental expenses for material needed, such as notebooks, etc. A man was in Lenox the first of the week investigating the matter and he found considerable interest in the town. He conferred with Supt. Parker, who promised cooperation. If a sufficient number of groups are organized at the meeting Monday night, the work will begin immediately, and it is planned to continue it throughout the MILLER RECOGNIZED BY CHEVROLET COMPANY A sales record established by Raymond Miller of the Miller Chevrolet company was recognized by the Chevrolet Co., the other day when he was sent a beautiful bronze pla,que bearing the following 'inscription: "Awarded Raymond Miller for a distinguished Chevrolet sales imimiimiimimiiiiimiiiiimimiiiiii Lenox School By Margaret Carruthers imiiimimmmiiiiiiiiiiiiimiimmiiii The new school year brought the following high school honor roll for the six weeks: Senior Class A B Jean Harvey .............. 3 1 Mildred Walker ........... 2 2 Margaret Carruthers ...... 2 2 Cecil Raynolds ............ 3 Ronald Johnson .......... 1 Claud Smith Two Undeleted Teams To Tangle Friday Night record, August, 1935.

The average of the monthly pension checks issued was $13.53. "This amount of money and number of pensioners is the largest of any month since the Iowa Old Age Assistance department was established," said Mrs. E. R. Meredith, chairman of the commission. '"jEach month of the fiscal year there must be set aside $169,470 to meet payments to these 12,525 pensioners. There also must be set aside $10,500 each-month for funeral benefits, a total of $125,990 per year or approximately $10 per pensioner per year. The amount of money paid in pensions must be increased from month to month in proportion to additional pensions added to the rolls." Thus far in October 104 aged people of Taylor county have received pension checks, total- ling $1380.

The play, "When Smith Stepped Out", is to be given at Stringtown, Oct. 24, and is being produced under the direction of Miss Wilcke. The story of the play is of the activities of Uncle Bill, an absent minded bachelor, who invariably gets himself into trouble . Included in the cast are: Eugene Swartz as Uncle Bill; RECOMMENDED SPENDING IONEY ON SHARPS ROAD C. E. Gaines, member of the lounty board of supervisors, ells us that at a meeting of the board held last week, a resolu- ,ion was adopted 540,000 allotecl to urging t! at the con \ty from PWA funds for seconch'.ry road construction, be spent on building and surfacing three miles of road south from Sharpsburg to the old Waubon- sie trail, and for the construction of a bridge over 102 river near Gravity. The recommendation was made to the state highway commission. Numerous committees called upon the board, said Mr. Gaines, asking that the money be spent in various parts of the county but the board decided it should be used to further a road plan that had already been started. The road contemplated would lead from a point near the Sharpsburg school south to the Leon and Lenox .Will Risk Reputations in Night Game Leon and Lenox, both undefeated so far this year, will meet on the Lenox lighted football field Friday evening in a game that will" probably ruin the clean record of one or the other of the teams. Leon has met Humeston, Seymour and Lamoni and won without trouble from all three. Lenox has played Orient, Corning and Afton and won easily from Corning and Afton and tied Orient. Several Lenox men drove to Leon last Friday night and saw the Leon outfit in the game against Lamoni. They say Leon will be no setup as it is a dangerous team. Lenox has had two weeks of rest and'Coach Gaer has put In PRESIDENT ON SEA TRIP A number of Lenox residents were more than casually interested in President Roosevelt s trip back to Washington, as two boys from this town, Wilbui wxjjw * _„ .1 •» jr~~,^i.c" nvp Clayton and Nieil sailors on the U. |B or not to>sceed $50 per Meyers, are S.

This program will be for the bene- lt of the town and community and it is hoped a large attendance will assist in the organization of the program. The work will be done under the direction, or at least in cooperation with, the . superm- tendend of the Lenox school. In many places this work has progressed wonderfully. Persons who have been out of school for years are finding it a good way to brush up or to take up something they always wanted to take but never had the opportunity of taking. It can become of great .value L0 the community. The work is not being put on for Lenox alone. Anyone within dnv ng distance, who can attend the mee'ine or the study groups, welcome. portion that the population of all people 65 years of age and over in each county bears to the population of that aged group in the entire state.

The amount of money alloted to the county would be sufficient to grade and surface the road, thus adding a few more miles to the road that has been started at Lenox and that now ends at Sharpsburg. It would bring that much nearer an all-weather road from Lenox, Sharpsburg and Conway to the county seat. Included in the resolution ad- a lot of hard licks on his men during that time.
