Finals In Bedford The final contest this year will be held in Bedford on Saturday December 2. Four preliminary contests are planned and they will be held on Fridays and Saturdays, November 17, 18, 24 arid 25, at places to be designated'later. Last year the preliminary contests were held at New Market, Gravity, Clearfield, and Bedford. The New Market and Clearfield contests were held on Saturday m rnings but it is possible that the Saturday morning contests wiU be held on Saturday even-tags this year. This has not been definitely decided, however. The 1933 Rules Rules for the 1933 contest will differ little from those of last year. Two additions have been made-schools will hot be allowed to employ or use professional directors and, where music is needed in the production of a play, schools will be allowed to use any accompanist. Rules On Page 4 #104,000 To Be Spent On Road Work 600 Men   Ask For Work Here Nearly 600 men have made application for work in the county, according to D. C. Mohler, county chairman of the committee handling re-employment details, and County Relief Chairman Clark M. Crowell, who has charge of applications. , A total of $104,000 has been apportioned to Taylor county for road work under the federal reemployment program, divided into projects as follows: Relocation and paving a portion of highway No. 3, at the Hale corner in Bedford, $3,000. Grading and bridging eight miles of road running south from the town of Lenox, $48,000. Grading and bridging five and one-half miles of highway No. 25, on the east county line, from the paving south to*Blocktori, $50,-' 000. . Similar work will be done oh the county line road, from the paving north to Clearfield, as a portion of the program in Ringgold county. Projects in each county will furnish employment to men of that particular county. Neither Mohler nor Crowell have any information on when work will be available, but they believe it will be soon. As soon as possible, contracts will be let by the state highway commission on the four Taylor county projects named, they are advised from state headquarters, and then the committee headed by Mohler will be advised of the number of men needed, and all other de; tails of the arrangements.
