The Postville team now rests alone at the top of the Upper Iowa conference, and could clinch the title by defeating West Union here Friday, February 13. Maynard, the finest team that the Pirates have faced this season, did not have the rebounding power to keep up with the Pirate attack. For Postville it was the thirteenth victory in succession and for Maynard it was the second loss in seventeen games. Outstanding defensive work by Bob Douglass and Bernie Martins held Maynard's two outstanding scoring threats, Buenneke and Suhr, to a total of ten points. Doing the major share of the scoring for Postville were Don Heins with 15 and Dean Gunderson 'with 12. In addition to his fine defensive play, Bernie collected eighteen rebounds or half of the team's total. Jim Malone master-minded the Pirate fast-break in the third quarter, and the Pirates rolled up 14 points to Maynard's 2 during the quarter. During this splurge of points Don Heins pushed through eight in three minutes.

The Postville reserve team was literally swept off their feet by the Maynard reserves 42 to 31. After,] winning eleven games in a row, the seconds could not get together the attack that would penetrate the Maynard defense, nor a defense that could check the hard-driving Maynard boys. The Postville guards were guilty of a great number of bad passes and the Maynard boys were quick to take advantage of their errors.

Saturday noon an alarm came from the Arno Dreier farm where a chimney burned out and was threatening to get out of control. However, no damage resulted. Sunday evening at the supper hour the department was called' to the Arbie Schroeder home on the : Clermont road where a gas stove; threatened to explode, but only'| damage was a seared stove and smudged kitchen. Both .farmsteads hold membership in the rural fire department which carries with it a certain sense of security, because a call usually gets the department out to prevent extensive loss to property.

In it property is listed by school districts, so if wou have property in more than one district, you should read through all of them to ascertain the full amount of the taxes you owe. The Herald assumes no responsibility as to the correctness of names i or figures; we print them as they are furnished us on lists from the various county treasurers. 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. . > The homestead exemption credits have been figured off the amounts due and the following list shows the net amount due for first half payment.
