And so, when the b«8t of the huskers Ret going, the ears are going to thump against the bangboards at the rate of 30 to 50 a minute. At times the tempo may be increased, but it's the steady rhythm that put* /championship huskers across. Throughout the entire middle- west corn husking will be in order from now on. There will be few shuckers who will work at the pace set in the 80 minute contests, but the art of shucking corn has been retained because of these competitions and, in gplte of the abundance of mechanical pickers, there arc few •huckers who cannot beat a rhythmic solo on the bangboard.

"Hiese are being placed In jobs as rapidly ax possible: in fact, many of them are already finding odd jobs. On the other hand, the supervisor fitat*s, there are many employable women on the relief roll*. the majority being widows with families, which makes It impossible for them to accept full time jobs. The majority of these women are willing to work and are taking odd jobs, or part Uaae work, when they can find it. Nevertheless, the costs of relief continue to be a problem to the supervisor.

And again Jeanie Morris had been up there on the stand white and tense and conscious of the undercurrent in the room and the subtle twist of the questions asked her. It was funny what little things could take on an importance. Jeanie, for instance, wnn asked where she had been the night her aunt was slain and she said quietly that he had been at home. "What was with you. Miss Mor- ris, during the time your nunt was away?" "I — I didn't know she was away," she said, staring at tht man. "But Miss Holmes— was there.'

He wasn't having any picnic, though, I knew, because I kept tab on him through his stories in The Dally.
