LEDYARD GIRLS WIN TOURNEY IN NORTH END To Play Lu Verne for Championship Next Week. Ledyard, Jan. 25—Ledyard high school girls' basketball team won the right to meet the Lu Verne girls' team, winner in the South End, in a steady march through a North End tournament here last week-end. Emerging from a mid-season slump which had, in the minds of many observers, made them short enders in pre-tournament dope, the Ledyard girls smashed all opposition with a powerful offensive and steady defensive. Drawing the toughest assignment of the tournament, the odd game, the team fought its way through the last two games in strong last half drives, scoring thirty points in each game and defeating Lakota and Seneca. The local girls scored a total of 164 points to their opponents' Six damage cases were set for trial at this term of court when cases were assigned Tuesday afternoon by Judge James DeLand* of Storm Lake, following the regular call of the calendar of new suits pending.

However it IB usual for cases to be assigned and not reach trial at the same term because of unforeseen delays. Set as the first case for trial next Tuesday morning when the petit jury appears is a damage suit brought by John L. Campbell against Ed. "Wilson as the result of an auto accident 3% miles southeast of Thornton, in which Mr. Campbell asks $16,000 damages. Mr. Campbell was riding in. the Wilson car when it crashed. Deatk Case Scheduled.

Mr. Armstrong asks 515,000 damages for the estate. Also killed in the same crash were Fern Hewitt and Mr. Thornton, and others In the latter's car were injured. Set to follow the Armstrong- Johnson case is a damage suit which has been pending for several terms in which Bess Greenwood, of Webster City, asks $5100 damages from the Smith Produce Co., Lloyd and Anne Smith, and Henry Zweifel, of Lu Verne. The case is based on an accident February 28, 1936, when a Smith truck and a car in which Mrs. Greenwood was a passenger crashed near Ames. This was the spring of heavy snows, and the petition states that the highway afforded one-way passage only in several places as one of the facts upon which negligence is alleged.
