PEOPLE ASKED NOT TO FEED ANY TRANSIENTS According to a bulletin recently received by Miss Irene Kohl county welfare worker from the Iowa Servce Bureau for Transients, Emmet county will no longer feed such transients that apply to the police as they have been doing the past winter. This new ruling apples not only to single transients but to the translet families that are wandering around the country. The Bu- and parents. You graduates are happy tonight bcause you fc: 1 thai you have accomplished something worth while-happy because you have reached a goal-arrived at an Important milestone. Your teachers rejoice with you, because you bore them out In their labors. Your friends, relatives and parents ore delighted tonight because you have been found worthy of honor and trust. And yet there comes to the mind of all of us the serious side of the occasion. Life's stern purpose la about to presennt itself to you in bolder relief; your teachers are reluctant to see you go, while your friends, relatives and parents feel somehow that the little boy and girl of yesterday, are about to play the role of the man and woman oi tomorrow. It isn't the easiest thing to break away from school with all Its pleasant associations and fond memories, while it Is still more difficult when the time approaches for us to sever the ties that bind us to the sacred place we call home. I do not wish to over emphasize the Importance of this occasion, ana still I feel that a business as important as the great business of life must be emphasized. I may say that you are standing on the threshold of the future and that It has many and difficult problems, and every one of them offers It* particular challenge. Each of you desire to be able to meet these problems and solve them-for thai purpose you were in school. Ac cordlngly you must have a definite PURPOSE and something to go b> -AN IDEAL. It has been said that there Is nothing new under the sun; that the principles and truths which affect our conduct the most are principles and trbths that hiave A local orchestra will furnish the music. V-R- CARS DAMAGED IN COLLISION TUESDAY A M. for the teachers, relatives, friends I, i�Jau hopes that It it will be able to do something to prohibit the wandering of so many people fsom one place to another.

Tile intake centers whew they can obtain food and lodging are: Des Moines, Davenport, Sioux City and Council Bluffs. Atlantic, Burlington, Dubuque, Ottumwa and Waterloo are reference centers where the transients may apply for aid and In some cases If titty have proper cards they may receive aid. Miss Kohl requests that the housewives not fe>ed the people that come to the doors asking for food as that only encourages them and an effort is being mad1-1 to stop the practice. -\-R- Mr. and Mrs. Homer Munson and children of Omaha, Neb., are guests at the parental E.

Smoke rose above them to a height of 5,000 to 6,000 feet and the flames roared tnto thje air to such a height that to the spectators from the air It seemed a marvel that the firemen could combat th'etn at all. Air piloting has been exceedingly difficult all this spring says Mr. Munson. The dust which Is in the air to a distance of 10,000 feet has U en hjird to battle. Sometimes he flew drectly through the dust at the usual altitude taken by plane" and at other times hje attempted to get above It. -V-R-- FWR PROJECTS EMPLOY 2 MEN AT SCHOOL WORK been known from time immemorial.
