The number of aged persons in this county who will receive assistance checks will be increased to a total of 230, by April first, out of an estimated 30,000 recipients in the entire state. This announcement is made by Byron G. Allen, superintendent of the Iowa Old Age Assistance 'Commission, upon receipt from Washington of a United States Treasury check for $548,100 as a start toward matching Iowa's old age pension fund dollar for dollar. This half-million-dollar check covers Iowa's allotment for February and March. During the remainder of the year, the Iowa Old Age Assistance commission anticipates receipt, each three months, of $780,000 in federal old age pension assistance. Iowa's check for $548,100 was the first to be issued to any of the 18 states whose old age assistance set-ups have been approved by the federal government. Also, Iowa's check was larger than that issued for any other state, the state of Washington being next with a check for $420,000. Payments made to other states on the basis of matching each state's, old age-pension dollar, were as follows: Wisconsin, $393,750; Michigan, Nebraska, $346,500; $347,130; Missouri, ng the flat King nuts, etc. iron The while calves pe leg stick out just enough iat men are able to keep socks more or less up pro' they wear garters. ff ff ff fien it comes to decorating numan frame with orna- man didn't have to use Ingenuity.

In commenting on the receipt of federal aid for the Iowa old age assistance program, Governor Clyde L. Herring said: — "It should be borne in mind that every payment of the $2.00 head tax really makes $4.00 available to Iowa for old age pensions. The federal government is matching every Iowa old age pension dollar and the federal allotments to Iowa will increase in direct proportion to tax collections. There are still many lov/ans delinquent in the Town Council Proceedings Lenox, Iowa, February 7, 1936. The Town Council of the incorporated Town of Lenox,, Iowa met in adjourned session on the above date as by action of February 4th. Mayor Cassill and the following Councilmen were present:) Eberle, Madden and Tyler. Because of the fact that a Town in Iowa voting recently on a proposition similar to the one voted upon in Lenox on October 4th, 1935, had not included the rate of interest on Bonds in their question, a Judge of the Supreme Court had ruled the election invalid. After a lengthy discussion as to how the above mentioned Court decision might effect the Town of Lenox, Councilman Tyler presented the following Resolution and moved its adoption: Resolution Calling Special Election WHEREAS, heretofore and on or about the llth day of October, 1923 this Town did enter into a contract with David A. Baum of Omaha, Nebraska providing for the rental by .the said Town of a tract of 162.95 acres for a period of fifty (50) years at a stipulated rental of $1,600.00 per year; and WHEREAS such contract was entered into by the Town for the purpose of acquiring a water reservpjp or water supply for the ' " * " Municipal and such NUMBER TWENTY-THREE use 'ofrthe' Town's Water Works Plant Golden Rule them to help further this worthy cause of assisting the needy aged." payment of this tax, and I urge DEMOCRATIC CAUCUS There will be a Platte Twp.

SNOW PLOW CAME LAST WEEK; ROADS ARE OPEN One of the county snow plows was brought to this part of the county last Thursday and began cutting the .drifts that have had the countrysid.e'/shut in for the past month.'' Because of the fact that the weather had turned warmer arid the snow was melting the' plow was operated at night. ',;/,.' The number of country people seen in town has noticeably increased since the snow plow came to this/part of the country. Many of them had been able to get,.to town only by walking. Most of the traveling was done with sleds through the fields as the roads were drifted full. The people up in this section of the county were mighty thankful to see that snow plow arrive and they tell us that as it roared through the country at night the folks rushed out of their houses and staged little celebrations .all up and down the road. TAYLOR COUNTY IS LISTED IN HEAVY INFESTED CHINCH BUG AREA Recent word from A. D. Worthington, Extension Entomologist for Iowa State College, indicates that Taylor county is located in the heavily infested chinch bug area of Iowa. Mr. Worthington bases his opinion on counts that were made for chinch bugs in the late fall and early winter of 1935. Fifteen different counts were made in Taylor county during the period of hibernation — the count running from as low as 54 to as high as 12,144 bugs per square foot. However, Mr. Worthington states that . population densities shown are not to be regarded chinch as a bug forecast of infestation the that general ' circulation good and sufficient said election, once therein, a notice of each week for four consecutive weeks, the last publication to be not less than five (5)days nor more than twenty (20) days before the date thereof, and such election to be in all respects conducted as required by Jaw for the Town of Lenox, Iowa. Town Council (Continued on page 8) might occur in 1936. This will largely be determined by the weather conditions during the spring and early summer months. It will be membered that lots of wet weather is detrimental to new broods of chinch bugs however, the adult bug which lives over winter can stand a lot of severe freezing and wet weather without killing them in great numbers. Mr. Davie, county agent, suggests that this should not be taken Ss a scare in regard to the chinch bug situation but should be given consideration by the farmers In planting such crops as barley and other small grains as there is a possibility with favorable weather conditions for small damages to be done by chinch bugs in 1939. CELEBRATED THEIR INFREQUENT BIRTHDAYS Mrs. Leona Scott Harding celebrated her birthday Saturday, February 29. We suspect although we do not know, that it was her fifth birthday. Marion Tuttle, well known to Lenox people, celebrated his 24th birthday Saturday. When was here on a visit about ;wo weeks.ago he told some of his friends that he was born Feb. 29, 1860., That would make his age 76 years although it would include only 24 birthdays. TOWN COUNCIL RAISED PAY OF TOWN CLERK At the insistence of W. C. who hfas been town clerk for the pas,t year, the town council vote'd to increase the pay of that office. The clerk's salary has been $50 a year but .he action of the council Monday night Increased it to $10 per month. Mr. Lewis says that the work of the office is too great to make t possible, for anyone to take care of it ..properly for the old salary. Mr. Lewis says, also, .hat he has no intention of applying for the position again as his own work will not permit him to give the time to the ob that it requires.

Whether due to road conditions or for some other reason, attendance at the tournament has not been large so far. It will probably pick up as the tournament moves along toward the finish. Last Saturday night the local basketball girls played the Massena girls on the former's floor. The game wasn't scheduled until Saturday afternoon. White Lenox beat them 26-19, the locals had to put up a hard fight In order to come through victorious.
