Ball Teams To Play On Jackasses Tonight With the aid of an assortment of donkles. two picked teams of kit- tenbnll players •will endeavor to last out an exhibition game to be played this evening at the athletic field. The "men on donkles" stunt is one of the newest things in the game, and the animals are Missouri mules—and if you know anything about Missouri mules you know that they are more stubborn than the hair on the back of a five year O *D Bruridage, who handles the reins of the league this season, has made the arrangements. A regular game between two picted all- Star on a one team will be Bed Smith, pitching, Vinson, Rising. Gregson, Pearson, pericks, Ken Medln, A. Nordstrom and Bennett On the other will be Pete Waldron, hurling, and Butler, P. Smith, Kelly, Bmns Gress, Kanouff, Joe Dahlhauser, Cretzmeyer and Hennegan. This game will precede the donkey game. The principal of the mule contest is to have all the players on the team in the field mounted except the pitcher and catcher. Th« batter is not mounted on a mule, but after he hits the ball he springs into the saddle of his trusty mule and hies himself for first base'. The rest will probably be history and a sore anatomy. ,..,,,«• at tv,« It sound as though there would be a great deal of fun at the affair. .

The extension permits continuation of the orderly discharge of loan obligations by farnrers now in position to make settlement, and gives others who will need the corn under seal for feeding purposes, more 'time to arrange for I repaying these loans. Under the terms 'of this extension, settlement will not be requested of borrowers before September 1, except on loans secured by corn in poor condition and likely to deteriorate or on corn in storage in Inferior cribs. May Settle In Meantime In the meantime, however, borrowers may make settlement according to one of several op.ional plans: Under one plan borrowers may sell the stored corn at their own option at any time, in accordance with the regulations announced May 31 by the Comodity Credit Corporation. In such case, the borrower first informs the Reconstruction Finance Corporation loan agency in his district of his Intentions, either directly or through his local bank. He furnishes the number of his loan certificate, the date and the amount of the loan, the name WiW Examine New P. O. Site Offers Friday Postmaster J. A.

Had Mr. Smith lived until September 10th, he would have reached the age of 81 years. Rev. F. O. Johnson, pastor of the church, had charge of the services and was assisted by two former pastors Rev.

E. Clayton, chairman of the corn- hog committee for this county, in an Interview. Mr. Clayton based his belief on several reasons: (1) That four govenment men checked the contracts for Kossuth before they were sent in and gave them an O. K. (2) That no word from Washington to the effect that contracts would be returned hod been received, despite newspaper talk. (3) That the trouble seems to have f arisen when other states objected to ' the fact that Iowa was to receive a shipping yard at Ketchikan where he had lived fnr twenty years, his home formerly having been In Newfoundland. Mrs. Parnell was teaching a school In Ketchikan prior to her marriage to Mr. Parnell ten years ago. A brother of Mrs. B. E. Norton, R. W. Edmonds, also resides in Ketchikan.

Investigators Magr Come It may be possible that AAA investigators will be sent here again, Mr. Clayton said, but in that case the county committee will welcome them, and all records are in such shape that the investigators can f?tt right to work. Such a move would simply be a repetition of wcrk the four federal men did a few weeks back, he also pointed out. News dispatches have stated that 19 enmities in Iowa were involved, including Kossuth, due to discrepancies In the records. As Kossuth was one ol ihe first counties, and also the largest county, to hand In the oontraobt fnr flnfli approval, It naturally was In flic list of those faced with the suspension of payment.
