This year "America's Foremost Dramatic Company" is unique In ite offering of both Shakespearean and modern repetoire. The company under the personal direction of Ernest Rymond Misner, has won national praice for its unusual interpretation of characters in the universities and colleges where it has played. Besides a wealth of comedy and dramatic talent, the Misner Flayers have the most brilliant rrrry of ccstumes on tour. To miss this presentation is to deny yourself the greatest dramatic event of the yenr. TREASURER WILL MAIL PERSONAL TAX STATEMENTS A bulletin received from the T ~ • t T? -4-;,,,v I office of Jay R.

The Lenox lone touchdown came in the final quarter when a series of passes was completed for sizable gains and Hayes carried the ball over the line. Shortly after this Lenox tried another pass when within 20 yards of the Clarinda line and it was snagged by Franklin and carried 80 yards for a touch- dawn." It was the most thrilling play of the game and a delight to the spectators to see Franklin shift and twist through a broken field, apparently not exerting himself to the limit but staying well out of reach of threatening hands. It is the general opinion ol those who saw the game that the score was too lopsided. Clarinda undoubtedly has the better team but not by a margin of 30 to 6. If Lenox had played the way it has been playing a score of about 18 to 12 would have been more like it. NIGHT CLASSES ABE SUSPENDED FOE WEEK It was necessary to suspend the meetings of the night classes now being held in Lenox, beginning last Tuesday evening, untU arrangements can be made for a meeting place. Meetings have been held in the school building but there ha s been some objection made to further use of this building. If a suitable place can be se cured the meetings will be re sumed next Tuesday evening. CONDITION OF CBESTON LADY REMAINS SERIOUS LA M^s. Carl Baker, who was in- Do you know what is the most dangerous driving period of the year? The statistical truth is that we are now in that part of the year which is most fraught with peril to the motorist and the pedestrian. October is usually the worst of the twelve months, the National Bureau of Casualty and Surety Underwriters reminds us and November comes next. The last three months of the year are the most dangerous quarter season. The reasons for this intensification of danger are to be found in the combination of a false sense of .security and the in- creaseS Hazards of natural conditions. The days grow shorter. Nightfall, notorious for its accident possibilities, gradually produces yearly peaks between 5 and 9 pm. The weather is often crisp, bracing, ideal for driving, and the roads are crowded — always an important element in accident frequency. A number of subtle, unobtrusive causes contribute: The skidding menace of wet leaves, roads slippery wieh frost in the early morning, accidents, and if the accident peril is imminent before the game, it is doubly so afterward. Then the thousands of automobiles choke every radiating highway, all in a hurry to get away and get home. The reaction setting in after the excitement of the game reduces driving alertness. Add to all this the likelihood that many drivers are under the influence of alcohol and the situation is distinctly menacing. These are occasions for great care in driving. Usually the roads leading from the stadiums are lined with police, stationed to get you there .and away as quickly and safely as possible. Cooperate with them, lest what starts in fun end in stragedy. Lenox boys have just as strong a determination to send them home with the short end of the score. Bedford players who were injured in a car wreck a week ago will be back in the line-up, it has been learned. The game will begin at 8 o'clock. This is the last home game of the season. It is your final opportunity to see the lome boys perform on the home field. Come out and give them your support. verse the folding, and fasten with paper clip. Complet statements will be submitted i the order in which requests ar received.

INDIANS HAD GAME LAWS "Two hundred years ago the Indians in Kentucky set aside E ame refuges for bears and established what may have been the first game laws in America, says Vernon Bailey, retired naturalist of the Biological Survey "Bear fat, bear meat and beai skins were the most prized returns of the hunt. Large areas were set aside as 'beloved bear grounds' where only a limited number of animals could be killed each year so that a permanent supply of these animals would be maintained. .
