PAGE BIGHT nfa &fatmre MIBi* ^B^^ SPRING TRACK WORK STARTED BY 30 MONDAY Fast Team Expected as Training is Opened. Bad weather has kept high school track men from much practice till this week, when Coach Mercer decided to go ahead with training regardless of weather. More than 30 track men reported for workout (Monday evening. Most of the time this week will ibe spent at limber- Ing up and getting into condition. Next week men will take to real workouts to eet into competitive condition for a Cedar Rapids meet next week Friday. The following week-end is reserved for the Drake relays at Des Molnes, April 28-29. Other scheduled events follow: North Iowa Conference - meet, Hampton, May 6; district meet, Ma»on City, May 15; state meet, Ames, May 20. A meet has also been scheduled against Emmetsburg on the local field in May, the date not having oeen set yet. Negotiations for other meets are pending. Letter Men Arc Out. A num'ber of letter men from last year are in this spring's line-up. Included 'in the list is "Chuck" Cretzmeyer, who specializes in the 100-yd. and 220-yd. dashes, as well 'as in the 'broad jump and the hurdle races. Other letter-men dash 'prospects are Sands and Hilton. "Dick" Cowan will spend most of his time with the distance runners and the javelin. Other distance runners are Green, Sarchet, Devine, and Guderian. Nordstrom wil! throw -the weights, also taking part in running races. In general, local track prospects this spring are -considered good. The field »o far has been too wet and slippery, A coating of cinders will be placed soon, and with dragging and a curb the track will then •be in good •condition. Spring: Football Ends. Spring football ended Friday, •when the high school squad was defeated, 13-12, in the last ten minutes of play by a 'town aggregation. Coach Mercer joined the townies in the 'last ten minutes and ran through two touchdowns and a field goal to win for them. The high school had held them scoreless and .had run up 12 points before the coach lined up against them. Poor weather had kept the gridiron boys from much practice, but Coach Mercer is now confident that the high school will have a .good team next Call. Backfield men will lave to be developed, but most line positions 'are already- well filled. The lineup for the scrimmage game Friday .follows: Town team — Center, Moore- guards, Keith and Gardner; tackles, Cosgrove and McDonald; ends, Pearson and Ostrum; backfield, iLichter, -Smith, Jorgensen, and McCullough. High School — Center, Miller; guards, Stevens and Little; tackles 'Monlux. and .Post; ends, Guderian and Post; full'back, Bruns; halfbacks, Hilton and Sellstrom; quarterback, Russell Medin. < "H'HKIY SPUING COMES T1IK LANK" (An Enstcr Poem) When Spring comes tripping down the lane. With music in her tread, Her sunny smile dissolves the snows Above the flowers'" bed; « Then daffodils and buttercups Awake to gentle rain. And violets their blue eyes ope, When Spring comes down the lane. The drownsy trees stir in sleep, Then, yawning, end their nap, And infant leaves peep shyly forth To tell of rising sap, While April with coquettish mien Leads lovelorn maid and swain A-wooing 'neath the silvery moon, When Spring comes down the lane. How balmy is the zephyr's breath, How sweet the carefree tune Of dancing brook that .shimmers 'Neath the grateful sun of noon; Glad children to the meadows troop To weave the daisy chain Or hunt the bluebells in the wood, When Spring comes down the lane. OFFICERS ELECTED BY PRESBYTERIANS The Presbyterians held their annual meeting at the church Tuesday night. At 6:30 a covered-dish •supper was served. The Rev. S. H. Aiten, Hurt, then opened the program with prayer and congregational singing, following which a brass quartet played. This quartet consisted of Bernard Yeoman, William Kain, Loyd Pratt and Ruth Malueg. Following a violin duet 'by Doris Jones and Betty Murtagh, with Georgia Anne Geigel at the piano, Christine Gould gave a reading. After the program the church organizations gave reports and officers were elected: G. E. Van Dorston, reelecled treasurer; L. G Willson, C. B. Murtagh, Jos. Ricker, C. F. Specht, reclected trustees for three years, Dennis Pratt and John McDowell, new trustees. W. V. Pool and John Magnusson were reelected elders for three years; L. E. Fairbanks, head usher for one year; Frank Geigel, Sunday school .superintendent. After election the elders and trustees met and decided to have the Rev. Mr. Aten conduct services at the local church on alternate Sunday evenings till a pastor is secured.

This was a most enthusiastic gathering. Judges Herrick and 'owers, Des Moines, and Edson, of Storm Lake, were vociferously ap- ilauded for addresses upholding temperance and the 18th amendment. Representatives of 89 of the 99 counties of Iowa met by groups and formed temporary organizations. "The undersigned compose the organization for Kossuth, and we are hereby calling a mass convention of the friends of temperance and prohibition at the Methodist church, Algona, at 10 o'clock April 18 to lay plans for resisting repeal of the 18th amendment and the return of a type of saloon far worse than that which Iowa outlawed in 1915. Speakers to Explain Issue. "We urge you to see that notice of this meeting Is published in your local newspaper and from the platforms of all church organizations, parent-teacher groups, Sunday schools, and other organlza tions, and that you plan personally to attend and bring as many as possible of your friends'. "There will be speaikers to explain the proposal for the return of Liquor, and plans will be laid for the organization of all precincts to resist repeal. A good dinner will be served 'in the church basement for 35c. Let us make this an enthusiastic meet- ng of all Kossuth friends of true temperance and civic righteousness.

It is unusual to find a female that fights, .but in this case it is suspected that the cardinal, fear- a love triangle between her highly colored spouse and a reflection in a bay window at Mrs. D. J. Mitchells, had her fighting spirit aroused. The scrapping was first noticed Sunday morning, when persistent tapping- on the window attracted the attention of the Mitchells. The window shade was half drawn, and J h ^ b jrd,_ sitting on a rose trellis pecking away When the window shade was pulled up the bird flew away, but it returned In a few moments.
