Officials of the county soil conservation association expect that checking compliance for parity payments on corn and wheat allotments will be completed by the end of the week. Reporters are now checking measurements and acreages . of corn' and wheat' planted, mapping out farms, and classifying "all crops. The maps and reports are checked with the. allotments filed in tthe conservation office. When this has been done, applications for'parity payment 'are prepared from county office determinations on the reports and are mailed to the producers for signature. Forms Expected Soon. Application forms are expected; from the state office in a few days. Soon afterlthey are filled out and signed- by ; jth'e producers, payment checks should be received here for distribution. Both producers and reporters certify to the measurements. Parity payment is made for not exceeding the allotment on number of corn and wheat acres. Parity payment on corn is 6c a bushel on an estimated county average of 40 bushels, an acre. On wheat, the payment is lie on an estimated county average of 18.3 bushels an acre. If a farmer keeps not nly to his corn and .wheat allotments but also to the to'tal allotment ifdr soil-da- pleting crops and non-depleting 'crops, such as /legumes, pasture and'emergency forage crops, he is eligible for payment for compliance with the agricultural conservation COMEDY TEAM COMING T ARIMER & HUDSON, .comedy bicycl sis* are booked for the Fourth •*-' celebration at the Kossuth fatrgrotinds next Tuesday.

Bancroft at 10 a. m., and the winner of that ,game will meet Wesley at 3 p. m. A conference of managers of the three teams was held yesterday morning at the Chamber of Com- f a | r merce offices with E. Brunlett, of Cowrie), -district committeeman, and Leo Laird, of Rockwell City, state director both present. The season games ended in 'a three-way tie. Two round-robin tournaments, one held last week Tuesday and the other on Friday, also.resulted in ties. A county winner must be chosen this week to play .in a district tournament, and so on in the state and national contests. It was feared that another round-robin tourney would result in a third tie. After discussion it was dicided to have the elimination contest. Envelopes were prepared to determine which team would have to play only the afternoon game, and Wesley got the bye', Thus the team defeated in the morning game will be definitely out of the running, and the afternoon winner will have a clear title.- During the discussion the team managers agreed that the winning earn will choos'e three men from ach of the two losing teams to olster that team for the district ontest. BOTH PINNED BENEATH CARS IN ACCIDENTS Esther Oppedahl, of Bode, Helen Meier, Burt, Victims. 'Two girls were killed Friday in Kossuth auto accidents, bringing the total to four. Helen Meier, 12. of Hurt, was killed at 2:15 o'clock near Plum Creek, and Esther Op- pendahl, 22, of Bode, was killed about 4 o'clock north of Ottosen. In both Instances the girls were crushed beneath over-turnnig cars. The 1 Burt fatality was the result of a 'towing accident. Mr. and Mrs. Henry Meier, Helen and another daughter Joyce, were driving two cars home. -Mr., Meier was in his own car, with Mrs. Meier steering the second car being towed. The second car belonged to the Meier's son Gerald, who with his family, had just gone to Cherokee in a trailer house.where he was working with a grading crew. Tow Chain Breaks. The accident occurred when Mr. Meier slowed up. Mrs. Meier in the second car, was unable to stop her car from bumping into the first car. Mr. Meier then turned on the gas to get out of the way, and this jerked the second car ahead. The jerk almost stopped the first car, and the second then went to one side, almost passing the first car on the left. The slack in the chain was used up as the -cars came abreast, and when the chain tightened it tossed the leading car being driven by Mr. Meier to one, side, and it swerved toward the ditch. Just then the tow chain broke,- and the car rolled over twice into the ditch, pinning and crushing Helen .beneath it. Mr, Meier was thrown clear. to get, .but this one is an ex- ion, and shows one of the bril- liarit .bombs, exploding in a blaze of light.
