"In the fourth inning with men on first and second bases, the third man at bat for the 358th hit a hard high line drive /that looked good for a safety. With the runners off at the rack of the bat, Corporal Joe McNeill, 357th first baseman, leaped high In the air, speared the ball with his gloved hand for the (first out, touched his base for the second out and completed the spectacular performance |by whipping the ball to Milton Pickart at second base Vho touched the runndr for the grand slam.

The average Idwan is of the opinlon,that trout fishing can only be had In the mountain streams of western states. However, since 1923 the state has built and maintained trout hatch erles in the northeastern counties, the earliest one being built at Strawberry Point. There are 35 trout streams in that section of the state and there were, 460,000 trout placed in those streams last year. "Duke" said that fishing in the Iowa, stream* was so much better than lit* those of neighboring states because many of the streams in other states, were privately owned artd therefore many no trespassing 'signs, > something Iowa 'fishermen are not met with in tbis state.

Titonka Lumber Yard, Sheriff Art Cogley was called to Titonka Friday morning following the discovery of three places having been broken into some time during the night. He found that in cape of the French Lumber Company the .thief, or thieves had taken $11.84 from the cash drawer. The safe was open but nothing had been removed, according to a check-up by the manager of the yards. - Both Eleviators Entered Seemingly the same thief, or thieves, had also entered the North Iowa ' Grain elevator office. The manager reports that there was no cash in the office, hence the robbers got nothing for their trouble in that Instance, In the case of the Farmers Elevator, the manager reports that $2 in pennies were taken by the robbers. According to Sheriff Cogley the thief or thieves evidently were old hands at the business of breaking and entering. It seems that -they first broke into the railroad section tool house and took hammers and chisels and then too, they removed two pins, from the brake- shoe of a freight car on sidetrack, Tttiese pins are heavy and of convenient length to serve as a pinch bar in the job of breaking through doors or prying; open windows. Sheriff Cogley-has been informed .that like breaking, and entering occurred in several instances at) Livermore recently and he is oi the opinion that the same man, or men, is responsible-for the Titonka robberies, Price Ceiling Report* to Pea Moines Office To the few concerns and business houses in Kossijth county that did not file a Price Ceiling Report wUh the local Rationing Board on July 1st, information is given out at this time that all Price Ceiling Reports now on file will be sent into the state office at Des Moines for a check-up and it is the desire that everyone in business eligible to file this Price Ceiling Report to do so before Saturday, September Sharp, failed to he condttPttd with, chief ajr 'rs4 a, Bond to Honor Every Moth er's S»n 4n Service.'" dered on this call and a notice of who mafe want Both, theatres here, according to suspected delinquency will be mail Mr. Rice, are prepared. |P «eU and, a.t nis last known address deliver any amount of stamps . from the local board office today For truck, bus, light bonds 4ay or night, Sundays and and implement tires Awault and Battery holidays, throughout the mpnth of mailing the notice of delin- the quota is 99 ttref, 64 retreads, quency the local board will wait Oust in Mayor*!
