POSTVILLE, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 28, 1948. Number 13. League Leading Pirates Humble WaukojvWI Reserves and Jr.'Hi Are Also Victorious In Last Friday's Tilts 7 \ Postville's battling Pirates spanked the Waukdn Indians, here Friday, January 23, with a 29-11 verdict. It topped another field day for the Postvillc teams against Waukon; for the reserves and the junior high had already turned' in triumphs." This made the total record for the .three teams twenty-four wins in twenty-five starts. TWO TEAMS WIN AT COUNTY TOURNEY Postville's Junior High team won its first round game in the county tournament at Waukon Monday night, defeating Waukon 19 to 8. The locals meet Waterville tonight at 6:30 in the second round play. Postville Pirates won over Waterville Tuesday night in the county tourney, 49 to 17, and move into the second round Thursday night at 7:30 against the winner of the Waukon-Harpers Ferry game to be played tonight.. Waukon 's tall team started ou/ the game in control, with the shorter Postville team able to collect b t ut one rebound in the first quarter. The quarter ended Postville 2, Wau : * kon 1. The second quarter found the locals able to attain better position on their rebounds, but they were still unable to get their offense to click. The half ended with the Pirates leading 10 to 6. Waukon still had no field goals at this point. The second half told a different tale; for the Pirates made their offense function as well as keeping track of the rebounds. It was in this quarter that the Indians scorad their only field goal of the entire contest. The quarter ended with the locals ahead 18 to 8. The Pirates continued to add to their lead throughout the fourth quarter, even when an entirely different team held the floor for them. This game marked the second time this season that the" Postville team had been held to less than thirty points, both times by Waukon. Statistics oil the' game indicate that Postville was unable to score in their usual manner because the Waukon defense was so stingy with its shots, allowing only thirty- six. The Pirates made good on lei* attempts for 28%, which is slightly bettor than ' their season record of 26%. Bernie Marlins led the Postville scoring attack with 10, but Bob Douglass made good three field goals on just three attempts. Martins and Gunderson turned in the best jobs of rebounding, while Howard Hills and Jim Malone were thorns in Waukon's offense by virtue of their aggressive defensive tactics.

To save time, we publish only the first half payment of the taxes; to ascertain the full amount owed, the amount shown should be doubled. First half payments may be'paid now and they become delinquent and subject to penalty for non-payment after March 31. TheTiomestead exemption credits have been figured off the amounts due and the following list shows the net amount due for first half payment. In Postville taxes are about 15% higher than last year's.
