On Friday night the high school girls played a team made up of former high school players and won 24 to 15.

Samples was the second child of James and Mary Belle Samples, born Dec. 8, 1861, in Batavia, Iowa, in Jefferson county, Iowa and died at his home near Kent, Iowa, Thursday morning, Jan. 16, 1936, age 74 years, 1 month and 8 days. At the age of 4 years, in March, 1865 he came with his parents in a covered wagon from Batavia, Iowa, to Platte township, Union county, Iowa, and the family settled in a log H U H I was raised to be truthful md I have always tried to tell Sothing but the truth and it therefore goes very much |gainst the grain with me even suggest that anyone should ilsify about the weather. Pos- jibly if we gather up all the ac- lual facts and file them care- Ully away in our memories we 111 be able to astonish the Qungsters of a generation as et unborn when we turn loose jese facts with a flow of ap- |opriate adjectives. H S \ IpffffThis winter is, indeed, a very one and real facts should |:p.ot be hard to collect. Wednes- llday afternoon I chanced to past the city park and, as lusual, glanced at the monument ibf the Civil War Veteran that Istands in the northeast corner. II have conceived quite a friend- fship for the old fellow and I 'never pass the park without [glancing in his direction to see i how he is getting along. When [ I passed the park Wednesday it was bitterly cold and I was only mildly surprised to notice that the statue had pulled down his earflaps and stuck his hands in his pockets. He didn't look very military, I'll admit, but as I say, it was a, very cold day and he is'a friend of mine. I shall not report him to the cabin on the farm where he lived until the time of his death. An older sister, Mary, preceded him in death Sept. 12, 1914; two years later, Sept. 15, 1916, his father died. His mother died April 22, 1930. He enjoyed very good health until the last two and one half years, when his health began to fail due to kidney trouble. The last six months he failed fast, other troubles set in and the last two weeks he declined very rapidly, but not until the morning before his death did he give up to go to bed. He is survived by his wife, a brother, James; a niece, Vera Christiansen and family; a host of relatives and friends. To them, his death will be a personal loss, as he was loved and respected by all who knew him Funeral services were held al his home Saturday, Jan. 18, at two o'clock, conducted by Rev Pranks of Kent. He was laid to rest in the Morgan cemetery ual. Various interesting reports have been given on food, clothing, health and play, etc. „ Clothing is the next topic for the girls to study.

Hamilton, presiden of the Taylor County Farm Bureau, and James Salter, chairman of the organization committee, have announced tha plans are under way to mater ially increase the membership ir Taylor county. Glaus L. Anderson of Stanton, Iowa, ha bee secured to direct the organ ization campaign.

Gwe'neth Stapleton, Barbara Krohmer, Charley Manroe SEES POSSIBLE TIE UP BETWEEN NEW PROGRAM AND COUNTY PLANNING The proposed farm program based on soil conservation practices which farmers' representatives have recommended to replace the AAA and which is xpected to be submitted to ongress soon, will fit right in vith the needs of Iowa agri- ulture, says Robert M. Davie, ounty agent. Just what form the program vill take cannot be predicted, 'resent indications are that the general principle will be payment of benefits to farmers who 'ollow approved cropping sys- ems, thereby maintaining soil ertility, controlling erosion and seeping a reasonable' share of .heir land out of production of major crops. According to word received by Mr. Davie from R. K. Bliss, director of the Extension Service at Iowa State College, both state and. federal officials consider that the ruling of the Supreme Court against the AAA has made the work of the ounty agricultural planning committee of even greater importance than before. The job of the county planning committees, Mr. Davie explained, is to outline a farm jrogram or policy that is best suited to the soil types of each county. Such a program, bas- id on good soil practices and Topping systems, will not only conserve soil but will help hold production to desired levels. The Tayor County Agricultural Planning Committee will hold a joint meeting at Mt. Ayr next Monday, January 27, with the Ringgold committee to start recommendations. Although confusion resulting from the AAA decision affected business in many sections of the country, retail trade for the most part moved ahead of the previous week and sharply increased over the 1935 period, according to Department of Commerce reports from 33 prominent cities in widely scattered areas. Industrial activity continued to manifest an encouraging upward trend with .remands increasing on steel mills and considerable expansion in progress in various manufacturing segments. Wholesale lines felt the bulk of the uncertainty incident to the invalidation of the processing taxes. Dallas reporting that wholesalers and manufacturers both were disturbed. In New York orders remained negligible and confusion still reigned.

Factors responsible for improvement in New York were described as: greater use of ad vertising, better weather conditions, slightly higher prices and less cautious attitude on spending. Chicago reported heavy buying of furniture and house-furnishings on the winter market with increasing interest in Spring merchandise. Most cities reported industrial progress.
