MARCUE CHOSEN LEADER LE MARS DEFEATS HAWARDEN Forty- five Boys Entered Acre Corn Contest and in Spite of Bad Weather and Adverse Conditions Twentynine Stayed in the Race. J. C. Wooters, o[ the extension department at Ames, - was in LeMars last Friday making arrangements for the • lesing up of the Boys Acre Corn Contest in this county. A meeting was held at tho Commercial Club rooms at • which lie outlined his plans and asked the selection of a leader to take the place of ox- County Superintendent Denahoc, who has removed from the ceenty. When Mr. Wooters outlined the kind of a man best fitted for the werk the meeting agreed that Carl R. Marcue, of LeMars, best fitted the seeeifications and a committee waited Mi Mr. Marcue and secured his accept aa « 6 of the place. This county was merer organized with township leaders aad it will be necessary for Mr. Marcue t « arrange for these or some substitmte for them before the contest can fee closed and It can be decided who wtas the trip to San Francisco donated by the First National Bank and the long list of township prizes donated by business men in various parts of the eeunty Forty- five Iboys entered the contest i » Plymouth county and in spite of a bad season and lack of encouragement frem local leaders, twenty- nine have staid in the race and will contest for the honors and prizes. Thes boys have new complied with all requirements eseept tho selection of sample ears the harvest and their final report. The e » tire contest must be closed by November 10th, and not later than November 4tli each < boy must bring to Play Loose Game But Manage to Win 19 to 7 Victory The LeMars high school football team added another to its list of victories on the gridiron when they defeated Hawarden Saturday 19 to 7 in a game in which the locals did not play with anything like the class they showed against Sioux City a week previous. Luck broke LeMars way, however, and their advantage over Hawarden was not as great as tho score would indicate. Huber, who played only the first quarter, put up his usual clnssy game and returned one ' punt, about. forty yards but there is room for considerable improvement in the team's work over what they did Saturday and a necessity for it if the game with Storm Lake next Saturday is to result in a LeMars victory. The lineup at the beginning of the game was the same as when Sioux City was played except that Koch took Mnthey's place. When Huber went out after the first quarter, Bogon went in at half and Dunn to end. Sexton was substituted for Koch. Hawarden scored on a long shoe string pass to Jacobs. Hawarden played snappy game. The game next Saturday with Storm Lake will b< 2 the next to last high school game on the local ground this year and promises to bo one of the hardest fought games that LeMars has this season. LeMars defeated Storm Lake a year ago by one point and they will try to even up that score Saturday CORN CONTEST BOYS Mr. Wooters Gives Farewell Inst rue tions to Contestants Tho following letter from Mr. Wooters relative to the Boys Corn Contest is self explanatory: To the Corn Club Boys of Plymouth County: Full directions for harvesting your prize acre, together with final report blanks, will be sent you this week from the State College at Ames.

This has ibeen an unfavorable year for all the boys in the state and Plymouth county with twenty- nine boys still in the contest Is making a good showing. Every boy who has done hlB - work faithfully this year Is to receive a nice diploma from the state leader, Mr. Bishop. We hope every boy who Is in the club this year will enroll again for next year's contest. This is a 'good time to start the work for 1916. Gather some good seed and take care of it; fall plow your acre and fertilize It during the winter; make a special study of corn this winter and be ready to make a record yield next year. Yours truly, J. B.

A jswfature test is also required, the instructions from Ames telling In detail h* w It must be made. The ten ears ef eorn Urned over to the county leader will be scored by a competent Judge aad the best Ave ears will go to Ames ia the state competition. This corn eahibit of 290 ears will afford a good MMleus for a county corn show if one o « « ld be arranged. Mr. Wooters also talked at some leagth albout plans for next year. He thiaks 10,000 boys betweea 10 and 19 vril be In the competition next year. While tho grand prize will probably be smaller next year, the township prizes will no doubt be Increased. A meeting will be called in LeMars the latter part of November to consider arrangements for next year. It was suggested that all the Commercial Clubs of the county, the granges and any others who might be Interested in the matter be invited to this meeting and that some county- wlde organization for the promotions of the boys corn contest be effected. following is a list of the boys who are still competing for the trip to San Francisco and the township prizes: Ralph Hearn, Ktngsley, Garfield twp.

Tho United States, the president said, was not merely trying to keep out of trouble, but was trying to preserve tho foundations upon which peace could be rebuilt. " Peace can be rebuilt," he added, ' only upon the ancient and accepted principles of International law; only upon those things which remind nations of their dutleB to each other and, deeper than, that, ot their duties to mankind and humanity. Amerloa has a great oause which Is not con fined to the American continent. It Is the cause of humanity itself.", Declaring his faith In the loyalty ot the great body of naturalised citizens of foreign birth, the president said he believed the Impression was too general that a very large number of these citizens were without a sufficient affection for the American Ideal. " But I am In a hurry to have a lineup," he explained, " and let the men who are thlnkiag^ flrst of other countries stand or* onjvslde and those who are for Amerloa first, last and all the time on the other side," " Every political action and every social' action in Amerloa at this time," said Mr. Wilson, '.' should have for Us object to challenge^ the spirit of Amer ioanism." » Marriage licenses - were'lwejjjl yea terday to.

W. Dunn, of LeMars, and other alleged victims at Spencer and Mason City, is on trial in Minneapolis. Thus far the most interesting witness has been A. G. Dolman, 30 years old, a Cherokee Indian, living in St. Paul. Dolman, testifying for the state, told an excited courtroom of a warning letter, written i nthe blood of a tribesman. The blood stained epistle figured largely in the tribulations of the Western Cereal Mills company, with which Walker was identified. It was because of Walker's identification with the corporation that he is now on trial. Walker Is alleged to have fraudulently collected approximately $ 500 from between thirty and forty persons who believed they were taking stock in the company. Included in tho victims were Mr. Dunn and the Spencer and Mason City men. The letter, written in blood, was a rambling document accusing Walker of being a " crook." It was written by Dolman, who took the blood out of his finger after the contents of an inkstand had been exhausted. Another letter, sans blood, was introduced. It was similar to the first in purport and was written, Dolman explained, because Walker had launched what the witness described as a " sucker game." " There never was a more faithful employe than I," Dolman said. " When I signed with Walker I said I would be as faithful as a dog, but if I saw any signs of crooked work I would knock his block off." Dolman was manager of the St. Paul office. He said that Walker asked him to resign to make room for Archie Hayes, executive clerk for Gov. Eberhart. Once, when Dolman asked to see the firm's books, Walker replied, according to the witness, that if he I didn't " stop that stuff his heart would bo cut ouL" DROPS DEAD IN CHURCH MRS.
