COUNTY RULER IN OLD DAYS BURIED HERE (Continued from page one.) SENEGA TAKES COUNTY TITLE IN BIG BATTLE Snneca, Feb. 24 — senec'a's girls • proved themselves county basketball champions before a cheering mob at Lone Rock Saturday night In what Referee Moore, Lnurens announced was the fastest girls game he had ever seen. A great Whittemore team was beaten by a greater Seneca aggregation in the final game for the championship, score 35-32. At one time Whittemore held a three point lead due to Carlisle's wonderful shooting, but after Jensen, Seneca's midget center, was . switched to guard, it was "too bad" for Whlttemore. Seneca's team work and Goetsch's shooting carried Seneca to victory, though Whlttemore threatened the victors again In the last three minutes. This was Seneca's second championship in two years, following two remarkable seasons In which 33 gomes have been won and only two lost. Supt. Rossman had kept his team pretty well under cover this year, and the .victory was a surprise to many. * He has had wonderful success with the girls, who now have a record of 81 victories and only seven defeats In five years. Wesley, 21; Bancroft, 19. A Wesley-Bancroft game opened the tournament, but Bancroft was badly handicapped by Lichliter's absence and Peterson's sickness. Had ^Bancroft been able to make free throws, of which only six out of 21 attempts were successful, the re- BUlt would have been different. 'Godfredson's work was outstanding Seneca, 40; Letlyaril, 9.

It is said that he refused a nomination for lieutenant governoi in 1S10 and supported Geo. W Clarke, later governor. In 1SSS-S9 Mr. Clarke represented Kossuth in the legislature. In 1900 he was a candidate for the same office, but was opposed by Gardner Cowles. This was the hardest- fought political campaign in the county history. It was in the day of the old convention system, and the battle over delegates was prolonged and close.

Some of the original certlfi team went in and finished the game Ledyard had mostly freshmen and sophomores In action, and they : Bhould be heard from next year. Lu Verne, 52; Lone Hock, 39. Lone Rock presented a flashy forward against Lu Vern e in 'Marlow. This young woman made 37 points in 32 minutes, which is n good evening's work for anybody. Burtis also played an outstanding game at guard. For Lu Verne Wagner at center and Godfrey at forward were stars. This was anybody's game till the last quarter. \Y1iiticniorc, 33; Fenton,' 22. A week ago Whittemore defeated Fentou by so points, and everybody looked for a walkover f\gnin, but the "dope" was nearly upset. Either Whittemore had trouble in getting started or Fenton had improved wonderfully. At the start of the last quarter the Fenton basketeers were leading, as they j in d throughout the game. However, Whittemore finally pulled -together enough to coast through. Weisbrod and Voight starred for Fenton, with Behnke the main cog in Whittemore's machine. Seneca, 37; Wesley, 7. The semi-finals now came on. A Seneca-AVesley game on Saturday at. ternoon was another walk away for •Seneca, which had too much heavy -'artillery and too strong a defense .-for the Wesleyans v had a chance. Whittemore, 37; Lu Veme-, 13. This game started out as if Wesley never it •Were going to be close, but Carlisle ,and Behnke, the Whittemore for- Trards, were unable to miss the basket. Lu Verne fought hard, but was weak on the forward end. The cen. ter, Wagner, and Godfrey at guard starred for Lu Verne, and the Lan- Berman twins for Whittemore. Seneca, 35; Whittemore, 32. Tn the finals this game furnished lire-works from start to finish. It waa probably the best girls' game •ever played in this part of Iowa. Whittemore went into the contest •with a record of in straight wins and no defeats, while Seneca had to her credit 15 wins and a defeat by Whittemore in December. All elgns -pointed to a Whittemore victory, but before the game was two minutes old the crowd discovered that Seneca also had a real team. Saneca led by ten points during part of the fourth quarter, onl> to have AVhittemore cut the lead down to three at the finish. All-County Stars Picked. Seneca was awarded a gold basketball, and Whittemore received the new basketball used at the tournament. It would be unfair to single out stars In this game without mentioning every player on both teams. The following county all-star team is offered fry R. L. Uossman, Seneca superintendent and coach; Forwards — Seneca, Goetsch; Whittemore, Carlisle. Centers — Seneca, Nielsen; Lu Verne, Wagner. Guards — Seneca, Jensen; Lu Verne, Godfrey. M'r. Rossman gives honorable mention to the following players: Forwards — Lone Rock, Marlow; Bancroft, Godfredson; Whittemore, Behnke. Centers — AVhittemore, the Langerman twins. Guards — Lone Hock, Burtis Fenton Voight; Seneca, Patterson Mrs. L. ,1. Lowinan Dies. Mrs. L. J. Lowman, north of town Buffered a stroke Sunday night at 11:30 and died.

By coincidence the cur rent Yeoman Shield contains an ar tlcle relating how Mr. Clarke one saved the society from bankruptcy >y advancing $3,000 to cover a deatl oss. The facts for this story wer furnished by H. J. Edens, of Sioux ~Mty, once a meat dealer here. For many years Mr. Clarke was >rominent in republican politics He was a member of the state com mittee two terms and was a presidential elector in 1904. In 1908 he was a delegate to the convention which nominated Taft and he was a finally decided for Cowles. METHODIST, C. V.

At the Call Theatre A Review of the Recent Talkies by T. H. C. > ITY THE POOR, unfortunate reviewer who must not only SEE Clara Bow pictures but is under contract (nnd such a contract!) to write about them In this "caustic column of comment." Last summer, while friend Clara waa working on another picture, she indulged in a little Ill-advised gambling. On her return home she found to her dismay that she had played with ten- dollar Instead of 50c chips anU her losses had run into the thousands of dollars. The newspapers played up the incident in the headlines, and the producers, quick to see a way to "cash in" on the affaii-, Immediately planned a gambling picture for the young feminine poker player. The result was "No Limit."' After viewing this miserable picture, It occurs to us that all the scenario writers of Hollywood must have Been on vacation at about tlili time and the job of writing the story placet! in the hands of some competent street-sweeper.'

In this picture, as we- remember it, she displayed liberal por- :ions of her- anatomy, wore, among other things, an engaging smile, andT was immediately acclaimed the "it" girl. Since that time she has been raveling on her rather shaky repu- ation, and if we might be pardoned' or hazarding a guess the "going" 1 mght to be getting tough for the ittle lady. Just, how long movie latrons will continue- to pay good! money to see a silly, dol-faced catter-brains tee-Hee through- ten- eels of drivel is- a mutter of con- ecture. Our modest suggestion is hat the title of this picture be hanged from "No- Limit" to "THE' .imlt," and let it go at that. R Bickford, and' EValyn Knapp, is cheduled as a "great thriller of the now country." The statement is- nly half true.

AVe were unsuccess- 'ul, however, even when the seem- ngly impossible stunt of dealing cards to himself was resorted to. There are some Impressive scenes between Pat (played by David Tor- fe one of the finest bits of action we have seen on the screen. Pietorially, Hell's Angels must easily rank with the greatest things :he screen has given us. The air scenes are so tremendous, so thrlll- "rrr,. so breath-taking, as to leave •ou gasping with sheer amazement :hat a picture could be so realistic. You are .actually in the pilot's seat, spinning around in the clouds, as ar as your heart action is concerned. The destruction of the huge Zeppelin and the bombing of a muntions depot are the most impressive Incidents that the screen las recorded, in our humble estima- ion. What more is there to say? rTa-re we given proper credit to this ruly great epic of the air? FT HAS ALWAYS been our con- L tention that the male pioneers :otmore than their just dues in the movies at the expense of the good vomen who shared their trials and ribulations and got little credit.

This demonstration is not alone for Black Hawk county, however, though that county enjoys the im- medJate benefit, but is for all counties of the state in that it shows what a county library is and how it is conducted. Ninety-five stations have been established in Black Hawk county, from which books are distributed. Some of these stations are in rural schools, consolidated or parochial schools, farm homes, city halls, stores, etc. The books are sent out from the Waterloo public library, and a book wagon 'makes three trips a week picking up books which have been read and leaving a freeh supply. More than four months have passed since this demonstration was inaugurated, and already more than 7,000 books have been distributed. identity of the hero, but for the most part, River's End is just another talkie, and that's all.

JOHNSON. 24-25 County Auditor real picture of aerial warfare. However, if the producers fail to get their four million dollars back, and only a small percentage of the customers enjoy the show, why, we asic you, go to all the trouble? Because after all, this Isn't Art In the sense that It will live forever, nor that its intrinsic value justifies the sordidness of its theme. In other words, the theme of a book, or a play, or a painting, may be sordid and depressive, but the thlng^ may be a contribution to the art of the world, which most certainly justifies Its existence. • The only feminine element is contributed by one Jean Harlowe, a blond vampire of no mean ability. This being her first screen appearance, it is difficult to say how she will register with the "fans." She is one of the "finds"—an extra Holly- ,, c ,„„„. II1B uu wood show-girl Who suddenly leaped j cp ics for awhile, into over-night fame when she i dared portray a bad girl with ruthless reality. Ben Lyon and James phasized to the point of absurdity, but the splendid work of Eleanor Boardman and John Mack Brown more than atone for the faults. The story deals with the struggles of the early pioneer women and with the Indians and the elements. It. Is surely an tinsnng chapter In the annals of the movies. An early love scene, taken against the filtering rays of ,a Setting sun against a background of meadow and woodland, is artistically and" plctorlally as lovely a "still" as we- have ever seen on the screen. We recall' thiat this picture was reproduced in one of our leading movie magazines' a few months ago as "the most.beautlfurshot of the month." Too much 1 praise cannot be given Eleanor- Boardman. In the role of the young" pioneer wife she is superb and earns a right to be classed as one of screenland's greatest actresses. In a word the entire production has a magnificent sweep and power that is breath-taking.
