Schmidt said his departmen is co-operating with sheriffs ii southern Iowa and with Mis souri authorities in endeavoring to run down "fly by night truckers who in the last few months have been cheatin Iowa farmers of their corn vi the bad check racket. Hustle Away Conway, terming the men "merchants on wheels — or we might say thieves on wheels," said irresponsible and individual truckers have bought corn in Iowa at slightly higher than the market price and have given the farmer a bad check after the truck was loaded. Hustling into Missouri, the trucker has sold the grain at less than market price in order to dispose of it in a hurry in one of several Missouri cities, and then vanished, Conway said. Conway. pointed out that no truckers 'operating under a rec- oEnized" firm name have eng.ag-J ed in the practice. . No Detailed Record Schmidt said his office did not have detailed records on the number of "fleecings" of Iowa farmers via the "bad check corn racket" because most of the cases have been handled thus far by sheriffs and Missouri authorities. The investigation chief suggested that farmers who have any suspicion of persons buying corn from them should refuse to permit the corn to be loaded until they have been paid or until they have checked with a. Sank as to the worth of checks tendered them in Pay^nt. He also urged farmers to take the Ucense number of the trucker. ternation of the slower moving lighway-users.

D. Hughes, head of farm crops at Iowa State College. In southern Iowa it will not be possible to. husk corn for several weeks in late planted fields, and in the central and northern sections the ears are developing mold while still on the stalk in the field, Hughes says.

In other words, you don't have to know anything to drive fast. Drivers who regard streets and highways as the Indianapolis bowl, might be divided into two classes:..First, those who ar weary of living and don't mind if they take innocent partie along with them into eternity. Second, those who are so stupid as to not realize that several thousand pounds of metal moving at terrific speed is as lethal a weapon as a machine-gun — both for the occupant and for anyone else who happens to be in the locality.

Lenox scored first in the first quarter on a safety when a Bedford man grounded the ball behind his own goal line for the two points for Lenox. Shortly after this Lenox pushed the county seat boys back and scored a touchdown but failed to make the extra point. In the second quarter Bedford made another safety when, pushed back almost to their goal line, they took the ball on downs and attempted to kick from behind the goal line. The pass from center was high and the Bedford kicker stepped back to take it and stepped outside the end zone. Following a safety the ball is put in play on the 20 yard line in possession of the team that made the safety and this team must kick on the first play. In the last quarter Ethington took the ball and ran 70 yards for a touchdown and the extra point was made, making the score 17 to 0. On the kickoff, following this touchdown, Bedford took the ball and Shaddy raced 90 yards down the field for the Bedford lone touchdown. Bedford made the extra point and the score was 17 to 7. Most of the game was played in mid-field with the ball changing hands every few downs because of fumbles or intercepted passes. Lenox opened with a passing attack, using the lateral pass, and gained many yards. Cold hands probably , were the cause of most of the fumbles and incomplete passes Charlie will be released rom Notce as een the hospital this week but will that a competitive examination as he aster at Lenox will oe the hospital this wee u w ta a comp not return home at once as he for postmaster at Lenox will oe will remain there for treatment held shortly and that the time t of alications will on the wrist.
