The conference recommended a hog adjustment payment of $2.50 for each hog produced up to 50 percent of each signer's base. The payment would be the same for a production ranging from 50 percent to 100 percent of the producer's base. The new northeast of arrested late Thursday night by Sheriff T. V. Lacy on a bench warrant issued by Judge George A. Johnston, says the Bedford Times Press. An indictment was returned that evening by the grand jury against Philpott on a charge of larceny of coal that had been purchased for use of rural schools in Philpott's home township, Grove. It is alleged that Philpott as president of the school board, had ordered a carload of coa! through the lumber yard a1 Sharpsburg. Truckmen will testify, it is said, that they delivered around seven tons of coal from the school car, to the Philpott bins.

B. Boltinghouse died at her home in Lenox, Saturday, following an illness of about six years. She had undergone a number of operations and had suffered untold pain during that time and death came as a welcome release to her. She had long realized the seriousness of her condition but she bore her suffering with the greatest fortitude and tried to make things as easy for her family as she could while she waited for the end of her suf- Lenox Tigers Closed Season; Beat fit. Ayr Hard Foaght Game Was Won in First Quarter; Score, 7-0 The Lenox Tigers closed their football season by winning a hard-fought battle from Mount Ayr, at Mount Ayr, Friday night. The score was 7 to 0 and was made in the first quarter. The game was one of the best we ever hope to see. Lenox had figured Mount Ayr as some of the toughest competition of the year and, from the way Mount Ayr crowds acted, the Mount Ayr folks were expecting Dept. of Commerce Weekly Bus. Survey Government Bureau Gives The Figures For The Entire Country The cold snap that struck scattered areas of the country last week resulted in a brisk pickup in retail trade, but hi many sections, including the East and South, unseasonably warm weather continued have a depressing effect, cording to reports to the to ac- De- fering. Funeral Tuesday services were afternoon at held the tional adjustment of from 10 to 30 percent in the base corn acreage of individual, signers in 1936 with the requirement that participating farmers produce 25 percent of their base acreage. It was suggested, however, that an optional adjustment of 10 to 25 percent in corn production would be satisfactory if it would bring about the desired reduction of 10 million acres in corn next year. Corn adjustment payments would remain at 35 cents a bushel, as 'in 1935; on the estimated yield of retired acres. The group unanimously approved establishment of 'corn and hog bases by an "appraisal method". The proposed method would provide that community corn-hog committeemen appraise the farm to be operated by each applicant for a contract and would recommend the base for corn and for hogs on each farm in 1936. County quotas would limit the aggregate acreage of corn and the total number of hogs that could be assigned to contract signers within each county. The proposal that the acreage of soil-improving and erosion preventing crops on each farm be increased by an amount equal to the acreage which the contract signer wishes to retire from corn production was unanimously approved. The conference went on record as favoring the inclusion of corn for silage in the corn base thus eliminating the requirement of checking compliance as to the use made of the corn. Work will be started immediately upon the drafting of the contract along the lines recommended by the conference. "THE AFTERMATH" TO BE GIVEN TUESDAY EVENING A comedy-drama, "The Aftermath", said to be a "cross between a circus, sermon, lecture and minstrel show," will be presented at the Methodist church Tuesday evening, Nov. 26, by Judge and Mrs. Summers, of St. Louis. Data for the play is taken from the official records of the comptroller of the National Currency and our National Laws. Lawyers, ministers, educators, businessmen and bankers . everywhere are said to be amazed at the revelations released in it. The setting of the play is in the office of a local liquor Control Board. The characters are Tom O'Neil, operator of a loca' Church of Christ and were conducted by the Rev. I. G. Ranels. The church was filled to apacity by relatives and friends f the family. Interment was nade in the Lenox cemetery. Obituary Clara Eva, daughter of Hariet A. and Geo. W.

HARRY HAYNES HAS TAKEN STANDARD LINE Harry Haynes has taken over the tank wagon business of the Standard Oil Co. and will deliver this well known product throughout the country surrounding Lenox. Roy Nelson is handling Standard products at his filling station. The Standard Oil company has recently come out with an announcement of a new fuel which, it is claimed, is 35 percent faster starting than any other gaso- sa line.

When they left the farm they moved to the home in Lenox, where she spent the rest of her life. To them were born three children, George Lewis of Harlan, Reldon James, who died at the age of two years, and Gail Everett, who resides at home. At about 15 years of age she joined the Blue Grove Christian Church, where she retained her membership until she moved to Lenox, when she transferred it to the Christian Church here. For a number of years she was a member of the Woman's Relief Corps until her failing health made it difficult to attend She was an active and devoted member of her church and attended faithfully its wor- line for several long Johnny Schmitt then loose for a 35 yard run that lacked only two feet of going over the goal line. Hayes carried it across on the next attempt. The extra point was made and Lenox was ahead 7 to 0 in the first few minutes of the first quarter. After this the game settled down to a battle most of which was played in Mount Ayr territory. Mount Ayr offered stubborn resistence at all times but lacked the driving force to threaten the Tigers. Lenox made 16 first downs to Mount Ayr's three. The Lenox -passes, both forward and later T al, were clicking in fine style and many yards were gained thereby. The end of the first half found the ball in the Tigers' possession only a foot or two from the Mounty Ayr goal line and the end of the game partment of Commerce from -nore than 30 of the leading commercial regions of the coun- ,ry. Wholesale lines reacted accordingly, with continued heavy demand for wearing apparel and holiday items. Reports referred to the backlog of reserve buying power that is expected to bear down heavily on retail stocks with the advent of cold weather. In many regions holiday buying was in progress in addition to generous purchasing of better quality goods in staple lines. Notwithstanding thej delayed pace of Winter business, in most instances the volume was running ahead of a year ago. Department store sales throughout the United States in October were 6 percent ahead of the same month last year, while in small towns and • rural areas Vera Quinn Is Dead as Result Of Accident Cars Crashed Head-On In Kansas City Thurs.

In the Lenox boys said the fact, field general merchandise sales were 17 percent greater than October a year ago and 31 percent ahead of the 1933 month. Reports indicated WPA projects were absorbing thousands of additional employables in all sections of the country and that private industrial expansions were also making increased demands on the unemployed rolls. This was particularly . true of the industrial centers of Detroit, Cleveland and Pittsburgh, but also extended to the Pacific Coast. A strong upswing in the woolen textile industry was reported, with unfilled orders for woven piece goods having been estimated at 43,575,000 yards. In the woolen center of Lawrence, Mass., the monthly payroll increased from $990,000 in October 1934 to $1,733,000 last month while the city's payroll lists increased by 10,032 workers in the same period and relief families were reduced from 1,044 to 434.
