Duncan Given Year in Jail; Paroled George Duncan, well-known in all parts of the county, was sentenced to a year in'Jail by Judge~F. C. Davidson at Emmetsburg last Thursday, but the sentence was suspended and Duncan was paroled to Sheriff L. E. Hbvey during his good behavior. Duncan has been lying in jail on a charge of carrying a concealed weapon since April 4, when he was arrested at Bancroft and bound to the grand jury by Justice C. Behr- inan, 'of Bancroft. Duncan at that time appeared at the Bradley cafe, and offered to sell a gun. Later he was seen walking down one of the Bancroft streets, and Jake Keller and Carl Dalhauser, Bancroft, heard two shots fired close to Duncan. The gun was never found, anc Duncan claimed that a stranger wanted him to sell the gun, anc that' it was the stranger who had fired the shots. The stranger, he said, then ran toward the stockyards. Duncan, however, pleaded guilty to the charge. The suspension was granted because Duncan had al ready stayed in jail more than two months while considering his plea of guilty. He has been involved in numerous scrapes with the law on previous occasions.

The second story floors and the. east and west corridors will have a mottled black and white terrazzo, and the main halls will have a mottled tan. The terrazzo effect continues from the floor to form a baseboard four inches or so obove the floor level. The floor gently rounds to the baseboard leaving no corners for dirt. Nearly as far down in the ground as the building is high above ground are found the two huge boilers, the ventilating fans and other equipment. This is at the north end of the building. At the south end Is a basement for the gymnasium. The remainder of the building has a .ground floor level. Jfliie Cases for Trophies.
