VOLUME SIXTY-TWO LENOX, TAYLOR COUNTY, IOWA, THURSDAY, JANUARY 23, 1936 NUMBER SEVENTEEN I V L. S. (III11III1IIII1R Listen, boys and girls, don't ever let the old timers tell you anything about the kind of winters they used to have back in '65 or some other prehistoric year. We are having a winter of our own, right now, that will stack up against anything the old timers can dig up. Anyway, it was always my opinion that when the old timers start in to tell of the cold weather they used to have or of how hot it used to get, or of how it rained 'one spring, they always pick a year some forty or fifty years before you were born and hang it on that year. It is impossible for the youngster to question the matter without checking up on the weather records and by the time he has done that the old timer is willing to agree with whatever he says and will deny that he quoted any other date. Now that's purely an opinion. ' Maybe the old timers can re• member accurately some 60 or 70 years back and remember right to the day but it is hardly likely. n nn The old timer is always talking about how the pioneers had to suffer through weather that would freeze the knob off the front door and he is willing to take oath that the winters we have nowadays are little, spindly, two by four winters that don't amount to shucks. He'll tell you about the blizzards they used to have and I don't doubt at all that they did have them. I don't believe, though, that they had any more snow than we have ( take it year for year. Back in' those days when a wind whipped out of Medicine Hat or where ever winds originate, it rambled down across the "plains' with noth'ing^to it and piled the snow up in heaps on the yon side of whatever happened to be sticking up above the ground. The pioneer houses were few and far between and there weren't any groves and fence rows to break the drift of the snow and that, my children, is why the old timers think the winters were colder some 60 or 70 years ago. I I « Now take the weather we have been having for the past few days. It's all right for you to take it, I don't want it. Take it as far away as you please and don't *bring it back. But I'm getting off the subject. What I intended to say was this: Why not collect our own stories about the weather so we'll have sometning to tell when we get to be old timers and a new crop of youngsters arises in the land. Then we can tell about the terrible winters we used to have and it' won't make a speck of difference whether we say it was the winter of '34, '35, '36 or '42. fl .1 U I was raised to be truthful and I have always tried to tell nothing but the truth and it therefore goes very much against the grain with me even to suggest that anyone should falsify about the weather. Possibly if we gather up all the actual facts and file them carefully away in our memories we will be able to astonish the youngsters of a generation as yet unborn when we turn loose these facts with a flow of appropriate adjectives. II 11 \ This winter is, indeed, a very cold one and real facts should not be hard to collect. Wednesday afternoon I chanced to drive past the city park and, as usual, glanced at the monument of the Civil War Veteran that stands in the northeast corner. I have conceived quite a friendship for the old fellow and I never pass the park without glancing in his direction to see 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, pu admit, but as I say, it was a very cold day Lenox Took Two From Corning and Clearfeld *Girls Defeated Former Stars While Boys Lost to Tarkio (By Margaret Carruthers) Lenox boys and girls won a double header at Clearfield Tuesday evening. The girls won 25 to 8 and the boys won 27 to 16. In a game with Clearfield on the Lenox floor a short time ago the girls played a tie game. In the game Tuesday night Phyllis Dunbar accounted for 18 of the 25 points the Lenox girls made. Last Thursday Lenox took two games from Corning. The boys won 30 to 35 and the girls won 22 to 8. On Friday night the high school girls played a team made up of former high school players and won 24 to 15. The boys met the strong Tarkio, Mo., team, coached by Ralph Ginn, formerly of Lenox, and lost 31 to 25. Will Play Gray Lenox girls will go to Gray, north of Audubon, Friday night for a game. Gray has a very MRS. DAVID FERRIS DIED TUESDAY MORNING - Mrs. David Ferris, 80, died at Maryville, Mo., early Tuesday morning, according to word received by the Ed Orr family Wednesday. The body will be brought to Lenox and funeral services will be held here Thursday. WILLIAM SAMPLES •*.-' DIED AT KENT William 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 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 at his home Saturday, Jan. 18, at two o'clock, conducted by Rev. Franks of Kent. He was laid to rest in the Morgan cemetery. strong team and has won from Audubon and Wiota so far this year. Next Tuesday night both boys and girls will play at Fresco tt.

Davie, county agent. Just what form the program will take cannot be predicted. Present indications are that the eneral principle will be payment of benefits to farmers who follow approved cropping systems, thereby maintaining soil fertility, controlling erosion and ceeping a reasonable' share of their 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 county agricultural planning committee of even greater importance than before. The job of the county planning committees, Mr. Davie explained, is to outline a farm program or policy that is best suited to the soil types of each county. Such a program, based on good soil practices and cropping 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. York orders remained negligible and confusion still reigned. Boston reported cotton sales .meager and futile efforts to stabilize prices, resulting in quo- bee secured to direct the organ- Lyle Hayes. ization campaign.
