THE LENOX TIME TABLE, LENOX, IOWA T. B. Threatens to Top 1934 Loss of Lives If the tuberculosis death toll for the second six months of 1935 matches the first half, anti-tuberculosis forces in Iowa will suffer their first setback since 1921. This warning was expressed today by Dr. Walter L. Bierring, state commissioner of health, who based his prediction upon statistics just released by the department, revealing that tuberculosis claimed 326 lives in the first six months period. Dr. Bierring, who is a member of the State Sponsoring Committee for the 1935 sale of Christmas Seals, urged renewed public efforts to counteract this in- j crease. "On the basis of this report, we may expect a total death toll in Iowa to exceed 050 deaths, a sharp increase over the 1934 total of 619 deaths," Dr. Bierring declared. '"Not since 1921 has tuberculosis, a preventable and curable disease, made such a gain. "This increase is the more sinister because it has come in the face of the most intensive Radiators \Ve are now equipped to do radiator repair work. If your radiator leaks, let us fix it for you before cold weather comes. A leaky radiator is costly in cold weather when you are buying: expensive antifreeze. We have had experience on all makes of trucks, tractors and cars and will give you satisfaction. Battery & Tire Work General Repair Work J.V.Wynn Blankets don't have to wash your blankets yourself.

Moore's Laundry Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays . Bill Dey Ermanfl, Agent Telephone 96 campaign waged against tuberculosis by the Iowa Tuberculosis Association in recent years. Lowered living standards of the past five years may be reflected in this sacrifice of life." Measures to eliminate much of the increased danger to public health were emphasized by Dr. Bierring. "Prevention of tuberculosis is primarily dependent upon early recognition, education of patients, their cooperation in the exercise of precautionary measures and education of the general public. "These measures are, in good part, carried out by the Iowa Tuberculosis Association and its local units, with funds obtained in the annual sale of Christmas Seals, which begins Thanksgiving Day. With tuberculosis apparently on the increase in Iowa for the first time in 14 years, all lowans should help in the campaign to keep tuberculosis in check. A purchase of Christmas Seals is one of the ways in which all of us can help." And I get it in my socks, But it never hurts my feelin's Like loose pennies in the box. Suit Started To Refinance Field Co. Shcnautloah Radio Merchandising Co. Was Hard Hit By Depression THEM'S MY SENTIMENTS SAYS N. L. CARMICHAEL N. L. Carmichael, rural mail carrier, must have had a little experience at digging pennies out of mail boxes on cold mornings. Anyway, he came in the other day with the following poem (he didn't write it) and suggested that it would be doing him a large sized favor if we printed it. So here it is: The Rural Postman In the cold and blustery weather, When the frost is on the rail, Would you love to face a blizzard With a half a ton of mail? In the biting blizzard weather When the snow comes to your knees, Would you love to fish for pennies While your feet and fingers freeze? When the gleaming snow is drifted Underneath a foot of sleet, Would you love to have the chilblains In you elbows and your feet? When outdoors the wind is whistling, And the air is full of snow, Would you love to have a jitney And the blamed thing wouldn't go? Yes, I'd love the good old fireside, Sipping coffee from a pail. But I have to buck the snowdrift 'Cause the farmers want their mail. I don't mind the frozen snowdrifts When my knees are stiff with cramps, If you keep the bloomin' pennies Buy a quarter's worth of stamps. I get snow mixed in my whiskers ARE YOU BARRED? "There is a principle which is a bar against all information which is proof against all .argument and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlast- in ignorance! That principle is condemnation before investigation" Spencer. Are you barred from the benefits of Chiropractic because you have condemned it before investigating it? Have you decided that Chiropractic holds no benefits for you? Why not remove this bar that is holding you back and decide to investigate before deciding against samething that is bringing relief and happiness to thousands of people every year? Chiropractic is the scientific way of treating disease. It is known that pressure on any nerve will affect the organ of the body to which that nerve leads. The Chiropractor removes the pressure from the nerve and nature completes the cure. Chiropractic adjustments are not painful and do not take long. _If taken in time a few adjustments ,may complete the cure. X«ray and Neurocalometer Service Or E. R, Pennebaker ••"" '- 1U In order to facilitate the handling of the affairs of the company, and pave the way for a reorganization to continue the business, E. A. Read, as trustee for the bond-holders, instituted a foreclosure suit in the District Court Nov. 12, against the Henry Field Company, and Judge Brown named the trustee as receiver, and directed that he shall continue the business operations of the company as usual, subject to the orders of the Court. He is directing the affairs of the company today, with the help of the old organization, and business will continue as heretofore, says the Shenandoah Gazette. The original bond issued in 1930, has been paid down to $186,000.00, and it is for this unpaid balance that the suit is instituted. These bonds were originally issued to the stockholders of the old Henry Field Seed Co., in part payment, or settlement for their stock, when the new company, the Henry Field Co., a Delaware corporation, was organized. The old company had a very successful financial record, covering almost 25 years, but the new concern had hardly begun to operate before the depression hit, and since that time has operated under steadily increasing difficulties. Henry Field, as the largest stockholder in the old concern, accepted bonds and stock in the new concern as payment for his holdings. The interest on the bonds has been in default for some time, and outside smaller bond-holders have forced the trustee te take this action. When foreclosure proceedings could no longer be delayed, interests inside the company organized a new concern with an authorized capital of $50,000.00, but with the original name, the Henry Field Seed Co., and its articles of incorporation are being filed in Des Moines today. The new organization officers will be Henry Field, president; J. W. Nicolson, vice president; F. E. Tunnicliff, treasurer; L. T. Nicolson, secretary, and T. W. Keenan, diretcor. It is the plan to use the new corporation as the vehicle to reorganize and permanently continue the business, which is one of' the largest of its kind in the middle west. ATTENDED FUNERAL OF MRS. J.

HERDSMEN'S COURSE OFFERED THIS WINTER AT IOWA STATE Iowa farm boys who have passed their seventeenth birthday and who find time heavy on then- hands after the fall work is completed can spend the winter months profitably by enrolling in the Herdsmen's Course at Iowa State College. The course begins Jan. 2 and closes March 20. This practical livestock training is designed especially for farm boys who could not otherwise obtain college instruction ta subjects vital to their We work. The instruction given is both technical and practical. Studies include special work in judging market and breedng classes of livestock, in feeding, breeding, care and management of farm animals, and in cutting and curing of farm meats. To supplement the animal husbandry work, studies in farm sanitation, farm buildings and equipment, milk testing, corn, small grain and forage crop production, agricultural journalism, soil management and business English are included. The, Herdsmen's Course was organized in 1918 to prepare men who are interested in and have had experience with livestock, but who have only a limited time to prepare themselves for the business of feeding and management of herds ancl flocks. The course lasts 6 months—3 months one year and 3 months any following year. Good men are usually able to obtain positions with some leading livestock breeder, or they may prefer to locate on their own farms. All students enrolled in this course are members of the Herdsmen's Club. It is one of the most active organizations on the campus. It holds weekly program meetings and sponsors the Herdsmen's Livestock Show each winter. Herdsmen fit and show individuals of the various classes for prizes during this annual event. Details concerning registration, fees, board and room, prerequisite education and further description of the Herdsmen's Course may be obtained by writing to the Animal Husbandry Department, Iowa State College, Ames, Iowa. iiimiimiiiiniiiiummmiiiiiiiiiimiii Lenox School By Margaret Carruthers iiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiimiiiiiitmiiimiiiiiui The girls have studied different "Lunch Menus" and have made suitable lunch menus for themselves according to calories.
