J. Schciiveman asked him If he had any mone>- to secure counsel for his defense and the prisoner declared that he did not. Asked by the court if he wanted him to appoint counsel for him. Jordan replied, "It's up to you." Despite the circumstances surrounding the case It is the law and duty of the court to appoint competent counsel. With this in mind Judge Schelnem»n appointed Attys. Sim T. Mee nnd Kcnnard J. Besso to defend th* prisoner. Jordan appeared rather sullen when broiiRht Into court.

Protect* Little Brother The story of how a 10-year-old girl protected her brother from the «n»er of Leo Jordan only a half hour before the Pulton man lured Warren Snyder to his death in a lonely vacant lot, was unfolded Wednesday, according to the Clinton Herald! The children are Mary Hocse. 10. •nd Gerald 6, daughter and •on of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Hocse of Pulton. The girl thought nothing of the incident which took place Monday aoon until the story of the murder horrified the community. She then told her mother how Jordan had stopped at the *cfiooT yard and became angered when •ome of the children teased him.

Over 400 Men in Military Service From Twin Cities 308 M«n Accounted For, Not Counting Those Who Enlisted Jiwl how many men from Sterling. Rock Falls and vicinity are there In the military service of the United State*? Over 400 would be a wife estimate. Possibly more. Chief Clerk William Cunnlff of the Sterling selective service board has been attempting to make a check, but to date has been unable to do .so, due to the fact that somewhere along the line matters have bogged down the information'as to the men ' enlisted in the army, navy, n.Brines and coa&t guard have not been received by the lecal board. The records of the board show, however, that there at* 226 men in Class 1-C (the various branches of the service.) In addition, 86 men were with Company M. and four have been discharged since, making 82. or a total of 306 men. However, for the past several years the various branches of the service have carried on a steady recruiting campaign here and have been sending men away almost weekly. A safe estimate would be that .100. men. were enlisted prior to the time the draft board took over, which would bring the number up to 408, which in probably a low estimate.

Even the wo men seem to have banned tea—un less they drink it in the secrecy o their own homes. Downtown, wher more and more people seem to be lunching dally, it's coffee.
