Claucline Hansell, 23, school teacher at the Hagan School, was found dead of monoxide gas early Tuesday morning and her companion, Lawrence Higdon, 20, of near Davis City, is in a critical condition suffering from the effects of the gas and exposure, says the Lamoni Chronicle. The couple was discovered at six o'clock Tuesday morning by Roy Hullinger and Green Hawks. The parents of the girl, who live in Ridgeway, Mo., were accompanied to the scene of the accident by the coroner. The body was taken to the funeral home at Ridgeway. The boy remains at the Roy Hullinger home fighting off an attack of pneumonia, too ill to be moved to his own home or to the hospital. Miss Hansell and her Companion had returned from Cainsville, Mo., where they had taken Hingdqh's brother back To a Man About to Die An open letter "to a man who is going to die this month in Arizona" was recently published by the Phoenix (Ariz.) Republic as part of a safety campaign. The letter read: "One month from today you will be dead! "Now, you are alive — reading this—and saying to yourself: 'This cannot mean me—! "But you. are mistaken—and that mistake will mean your death this month. You will go right ahead and kill yourself just the same. "Death will come to you something like this: "On that certain day you will walk out of the house, climb in ;o your car—and ride into ob- Ivion. Somewhere along the road on that last ride it will lappen. You will try to avoid .t, but in the fleeting instant Defore the crash you will realize that the confidence you now tiave in your ability as a driver lias been misplaced. You will know horror—then nothing. "One month from today You will be dead! "(According to the inexorable law of averages, at least 16 owners who read this will be dead from auto accidents by December 1.)" The presses with the letter had barely started to run when the first was killed on the outskirts of Phoenix. Bedford Dam is Nearly Completed Work on Concrete Spillway Will Be Started Soon Work of dirt moving in construction of the dam at the state lake northeast of Bedford is about completed, says the Bedford Times Press. Some 7,000 cubic yards in a to school, and parked in front of the Roy Hullinger home where she was living. According to Mr. Hullinger, he heard the car drive up to the gate at 9:30 Monday evening. After seeing who it was, Mr. Hawks thought no more about the parked car until he noticed it early the next morning. Calling Mr. Hullinger, the two mvesti- gated and found the young couple. Both were thought to be dead. Dr. Wailes was called to the scene of the accident and arranged for the body of the boy to be taken into the Hullinger home where he was given treatment. The girl had dead for several hours. The switch of the car been ^ was still"turn'ed on which indicated that the car had run out of gas sometime during the night. Higdon owes his life to the fact that the motor quit running and his being on the left side of the car. It is also thought the tact total of around 127,000 remains to be moved yet, R. T. Andrews, engineer in charge, states, and of this yardage, about 4,000 will be from the point where the concrete spillway is to be located a tthe west end of the dam. The mammoth earthern dam measures about 922 feet in length. It is 218 feet in width at the base, has a height of about 35 feet and tapers up to a width of 20 feet at the top, when completed. The %ement spillway to- be constructed will contain about $8,000 worth of material and measure about 30 to 50 feet in width and 600 to 700 feet in length, constructed for the purpose of carrying off overflow water. It is anticipated that the Hog Count Will Start December ] Plan to Finish Work About December 12 Earl Taylor, County Corn-Ho chairman, announced this morning that a check of ho compliances would be made on all farms where contracts are in force starting December 2. From two to three supervisors will be appointed for ecah township to make the compliance check. Guy Smith, district supervisor of the corn-hog program, met with the Taylor county committee November 23, and outlined the procedure in checking hog compliance. According to Mr,'Smith, contract farmers will be required to produce evidence of all feed- imestone Quarry Found AHJedford Engineers Are Testing Extent of Deposit What state engineers and ;eologists believe to be suffic- ent stone to use in surfacing park drives and the road from Bedford to the site of the new state lake and park four and one half miles northeast of the city, has been uncovered on the Will Robinson farm in northeast Bedford, says the Taylor County Herald. They declare that the lime- jtone lies but fifteen feet below the surface and is approximately 16 feet in thickness. Air drills and other state equipment Sis being used to determine the extent of the deposit. A large test hole has been dug and other extensive tests run at the proposed quarry. muiiiiimuuimiimiiimiiiiimmmii Lenox School By Margaret Carruthcrs mmiimmimimiiiiiuiiiimiimiiiiiu Girls Won and Lost The first team won their third victory Monday night, when they defeated Cromwell, 16 to team were un- defeated The second successful in winning, but they put up a hard struggle.

Mr. Soth bases his conclusion on several factors, but also makes •eservations for unforseen factors that might upset the price forecast. Factors relating to hog prices in the near future are outlined work on the spillway will be carried along this winter. that the wind was blowing over Higdon towards the girl was a factor in saving his life.

In the second quarter of the game Sidney blocked two punts and for a while was leading Clarinda 1 3to 6. Clarinda scored in the first quarter and managed to shove over another touchdown just before the end of the half. Sidney was reported to have been outweighed 18 pounds but held Clarinda without a tirst d °Clarinda was defeated on Nov. 4 1933 by Atlantic, 26 to b, since which time no other Iowa er pigs bought or sold. The 1935 hog program ; will be determined by sales slips, and hogs on the farm at the time of counting. The compliance work will be completed about December 12 according to present plans. MRS. I. G.

The Journal says: "Mr. Wenner, the only other cribbage player in town to ever have hand , flipped, the '"knave of On the turn held;.a perfect three fives and clubs to • Tom.

Four of those years, however, were depression years when the general trend of hog prices was downward. On the basis of protaable-- slaughlterings, you may get a. somewhat different idea of the market*. The spring pig crop usually is coming to market in large numbers during October, November and December. This year the spring crop was not only very light, but it was later than usual. During the summer the corn-hog feeding ratio became much wider than it would have been previously and the tendency was to feed to ed in a contest held that day. Second prize went to Mrs. Claude Morris and Mrs. Jennie Preston won third prize. A total of 17 cakes were entered. After being judged, the cakes were sold at auction and the proceeds, $9.64, went to the Boy Scout troup. Judges were Mrs. Roland Walter, Mrs. H. C Killion and Mrs. K. R. Huff The cakes were auctioned off by E E. Reynolds. A rule of the contest was tha all cakes must be baked fron Red and White cake flour. Mi Davis says that one cake, baked from a competing brand, was entered in the contest but failed to place. card, the i^ther five, in diamond uit, turned up, making a total f 29 points, the most any* 1 "cribv >age player can hold." We have played a little cribbage, from time to. time, and we always figured such a hand hould be counted as 28. Now f the turned card had been in ,he same suit as the knave in the hand, an extra point could lave been counted for his nobs which would have made the 29, With a hand, such as the one described by the Journal, there would be eight fifteen-twos, or 16, and six pairs or. 12 more, which would make 28.

FORMER BAKER HERE roKMLit COUNTY TEACHERS GROUP MET AT NEW MARKET The town teachers of Taylor county held one of their regular group meetings at New Market last Wednesday evening. Of the 91) teachers in the town schools of the county, 69 were present. Following a banquet at 7 o'clock, a short business meeting was held and the group was then divided into .smaller groups for specialized work with speakers. Lenox teachers who attended the meeting were Mr. and Mrs. K. U. Parker, Warren Gacr, Fred Cronkite, Miss Anna Turner, M;s.s Leona Haering, Mrs. Jennie Dahlberg, Miss Norma Bush and Miss Fanny Wilson. The next meeting will be at Lenox, Tuesday evening, December 17. Gordon, Ronald Johnson, Bing Miller, Alfred Nickolson, Everett Cashman, Hal Dean Moylc, Dick feed to heavier weights than usual. These two developments would lead to the .belief that the seasonal increase in mar- ketings in the fall would be later than usual. But, here is another angle. Though October hog market- ings were unusually small compared with other years, they formed an unusually large per-r centage of the spring pig crop as estimated by the United States Bureau of Agricultural Economics. The inference is hat many of the spring pigs rdinarily marketed in November and December have already been slaughtered. This is cori- rary, however, to what would be expected on the basis of the .ate pig crop and the wider corn-hog ratio.

Miss Evans 1 mother, Mrs. E. J. Evans of Oskaloosa, visited school last Thursday afternoon. Music The following are additions to the orchestra: Dean and Claire Tthington and Mildred Walker Commercial Department Jean Harvey passed her forty- the usual seasonal drop in hog prices. This is true both on a dollar basis and on a percentage basis. Consumer demands, never to be neglected in hog price out- looking, has been strengthening during recent months. This will tend to hold hog prices up through the rest of November and December. Market reports indicate that stronger pork demand has been a major factor in the slight rise in early November. Another hog price strengthener will be the cattle market. Cattle prices have been holding, up well and are expected^ to continue high " ' ' month or two. scarce because of the short supply of corn during the summer.
