The meeting was not largely attended, due to several other attractions in town that night, but enough interest was shown to warrant the organization of several classes and the working out of a schedule. Following is the program that has been arranged for the next week, only: Monday, Business Law, 7:30; Government, 8:iiO. Tuesday, Review, 7:30. Wednesday, English, 7:30; History, 8:30. Thursday, Public Speaking, 7:30; Economics, 8:30. Friday, Bookkeeping, 7:30. After the first week the time when the classes will meet will be changed to suit the needs of the members. All classes will meet at the school building. Anyone who wishes to take up work in any of these classes should note the. time of the meeting as given above, and then attend the meeting of the class next week. There are no fees or other charges. The work is sponsored by the government.

Barnes was near New Buffalo, Michigan, Aug 31, 1857, and died in Lenox, Iowa, Oct. 21, 1935 after a month's illness, at the age of 78 years, 1 month, and 21 days. On Jan. 16 1882, at Berwick, Illinois, he was married to Anna VI. Runyon, who died June 8, 925. Three children were born M them, one dying in infancy. Mr. Barnes Is survived by two daughters: Mrs. Mable Jenkins of Clearfield, and Mrs. Goldie Stephens of Peoria, 111.; and one brother, John Barnes of New Buffalo, Michigan. He is also survived by 8 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. In 1893 he left Illinois and settled on a farm near Lenox. Thirteen years later he moved to an acreage in the town. He united with the M. E. church of Lenox in 1904 and was a member of that church at the time of his death. For the past eight years he has lived in the Rhodenbaugh home, assisting In the care of the recently deceased Mr. Rhodenbaugh, which greatly taxed his strength. Funeral services were held m Creston, who, with her husband, was riding on the hayrack, is confined to the hospital in Creston with a cerebral concussion and had not regained consciousness at noon Monday. Mr. Baker received minor injuries as did Caskey, Keith and Prather. Hook had a fractured rib, a chest bruise and a gash on the head. The party was on its way to Afton' where Bedford was scheduled to play football Miss Jackson said lights of an approaching car blinded her and she did not see the hayrack until she struck it. The wagon was completely demolished and the car was badly wrecked. The accident happened shortly before 7 o'clock. When notice of it was received at Afton the game was cancelled.

Hot breadstuffs will be co plct- ed this week. The girls will then wo. .c in groups and prepare coi-plete breakfasts. Leila Orr brought an Avacoto to class, which came from California. It resembles the pear in shape. It is greenish in color on the outside and the pulp is like that of a squash and has a very disagreeable taste. The seed is larger than an average English walnut and very hard. Manual Training For the ensuing week the beginners in Manual Training will take up the study of upholstering. A number of the boys are making foot stools which are about ready for the covering. Much time has been spent in the last few days on the technique of making mortise and tenon and dowel joints. Plans are in the making to have fortnightly contests. Every two weeks a prize project will be chosen. Projects chosen will be displayed in the annual spring exhibit. Judges will be picked from the class at Visitors Have Good Record for Tigers to Shoot at Ciarinda, with a record of not having met defeat by an Iowa team during the past three years, will come to Lenox Friday night to tackle the Lenox Tigers. What the outcome will be remains to be seen, but it is a safe bet that the Tigers will give the boys from out of town a run for their money and may, perhaps, spoil the three year record. The Tigers learned a lesson in passing in the Leon game and during the week since then Coach Gaer has been devoting considerable time to working out defenses for this type of offense. The Lenox team has plenty of power and if this power is carefully directed it wil prove a mighty defense. Ciarinda won a 7-6 game from Shenandoah last Friday night and, a couple of weeks ago bea Corning 12 to 7. Lenox won from Corning 7 to 0 in our second game this season. What these scores mean is hard to guess but they do promise that the game Friday night will be a good one. The Tigers will meet their real test so far this year. Leon Furnished Thrills; Lenox Won the Game WPA Grant o Town for Lie Tricky Passes Are Almost Too Much for Locals A game sf> full of thrills that at the end of the contest the spectators were almost exhausted as the players, was served up to the customers last Friday night, when Leon, a hitherto undefeated team, emerged with the small end of a 13 to 7 score after a, tilt with the Lenox Tigers. The game was probably one of the most thrilling ever seen in Lenox. Lenox and even terms Leon played on during the first large and no one individual will serve in that capacity, more than once. Because a project is not chosen in these contests does not mean that it will not appear in the exhibit. According to Mr. Cronkite, work in the department is progressing rap- Meeting of Fortnightly Club Mrs. Fred Abernathy was hostess Wednesday afternoon to members of Fortnightly Club, and the following invited guests, Mrs. Walter Lewis, Mrs. A.

Music Appreciation A "Music Appreciation" program is given every two weeks under the direction of Walter Damrosh of New York. These programs began October 4, and all grade children listen to them in the music room over the N. B.C. network. First Grade Another new pupil, Dottle Ri Swallow, has been enrolled in Mrs. Luicele Miller of Omaha spent the weekend with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Glasgow. MJr. and Mrs. O. P. Arnold spent Sunday with relatives near Indianola. Mr. and Mrs. Roy Nelson and Mrs. Ed Lock of Gravity accompanied them to Winterset and in company with Mr. and Mrs. Wendell Nelson, drove to Grinnell to see Miss Grace Sullivan, who was seriously injured in an automobile accident several weeks ago. Mrs. Phil Ridgeway and Miss Ruth Lown spent Saturday and Sunday in Lincoln, Nebr. visiting with Will Crawford, a brother of the former. Mr. Crawford is seriously ill. quarter, seemingly trying to feel each other out. In the second quarter Lenox pushed over a touchdown but failed to make the extra point. This touchdown seemed to be what the Leon boys needed to set them going and they opened up a baffling passing attack that soon netted them a touchdown. The extra point attempt was good. The third quarter was scoreless with the visitors having the advantage. Leon's passes were clicking and they were using the baffling short lateral pass, by which the ball is tossed about almost as in a basketball game. Lenox, when in possession of the ball, attempted to gain with end runs and passes but the Dam Will Be Raised And Lake Capacity Increased The national WPA allotted $2,365,924 to Iowa last we ok and included in that amou t was $11,250 for improving the lake at Lenox. Work contemplated to be done on the new lake is to raise the dam 18 inches by building a concrete wall on top of the present dam. This will then be strengthened by filling in behind it with dirt. Capacity of the lake will be increased by 90 million gallons of water and when full to capacity it will extend to the fence line on both the north and south sides. From 12 to 15 men will be required on the job which it is thought -will last about three months. Included also in the project is the replacing of a little over a mile of galvanized 2 inch iron pipe in .the town with four inch cast iron. This pipe has been in the ground about 22 years and leaks badly. When it is replaced the water system will be of cast iron, throughout. Work on the two projects, we are informed, will begin as socn Sharpsburc Mrs. Carl Gold was taken to the hospital at Maryville, Mo., last week for medical treatment.

As the third quarter ended Lenox was in the hole by one point with the prospects looking silm for another counter. In the fourth quarter Lenox abandoned passes and long runs, and made use of the power it has in its line and backfleld With the line opening holes in the Leon team big enough to drive a circus wagon throv/h, George Hayes carried the ball again and again for gains of from three to ten yards. Before this onslaught of power the Leon team was helpless and a touchdown for Lenox was merely a matter of time. It came about the middle of the last quarter and the boys also collected the spare point, making the score 13 to 7. Taking the ball on the kickoff following the last touchdown Leon again resorted to passes and started a march down the field that was halted only when a Lenox man recovered a fumbled ball. The game ended with Lenox again driving toward the goal line. This game was the toughest the local boys have had so far as enough men are certified up for the work, which should not take long. Funds totalling $28,836 were allotted to Creston to improve McKinley park. No ruling has been made on the park plan submitted some time ago as, just at present, the relief list in Taylor county has been cut to a small figure. If this should increase enough to make work necessary the park plan will be given consideration. Thursday, Oct. 24 The Woman's Relief Corps is. meeting today at the Legion hall.
