Public School Notes
Attendance in the school has been
very good this fall. It is to be hoped
that it continues to be so during the
entire school year. j
Mr. Lynn Keefer, nephew of Mr.
Chris Keefer of this city, visited the
school one day last week. Mr. Keef

school at Covina, California, and is

part of the country.
The faculty was very pleasingly
entertained by the ladies of the

occasion and the good will shown on

A number of the pupils have been
excused from their school duties in
order to attend the County fair at
Weeping Water. Many of them have
made entries In the various depart
ments. The good that they get from
this sort of work very largely re
places that which they would get if
they were in school.
Miss Anna Trautt, in addition to
her regular work in the kindergart
en, is giving a course in Art to the
pupils of the remaining rooms. She
has had a number of special courses
in the university in thi3 work and
we feel that the school is to be con
gratulated on being able to take ad
vantage of her training and ability.
Miss Doris Arnold entertained the
teachers of the school at the home
of Mrs. L. Lauretson on Wednesday
night. ' September 21. The evening
was spent in making candy, playing

The contest that has been con

the largest number of words that
could be formed from the letters
in the firm name, has attracted a
great deal of attention and some
very keen competition among the
boys of the city.
There had been a large number
of prizes offered and the competi

boys to cop the chief prize, a line

over yesterday to a committee of

The two second prizes were
awarded to Clifford Duxbury with
210 words and Rudolph Iverson with
196 correctly spelled words.
The three third prizes were given
to Norris Cummins and Joe Schla

There were a large number of
minor prizes given with lists rang
ing from 155 to 100 correct words.
During the time of the contest
boys have been carefully studying
the words that might be formed
and as a result many words were
discovered that do not enter into or

certainly been well spent.

TO LIMIT DEBATE ON
Senate Vote Expected to be Reached
on October 14 or 15 Scare
Given By ".Anti-Beers"
Washington, Sept. 30. An agree
ment was reached by the senate late
today to impose a debate time limit
of one hour on each senator in con
sideration of the peace treaties with
Germany, Austria and Hungary be
ginning October 14, in order to ex
pedite a vote on ratification. Under
the agreement it is expected that
the vote will be reached on Octo
ber 14 or 15.
The original plan for an agree
ment to vote on October 14 was
abandoned after Senator Lodge, the
republican leader, and Senator Un
derwood, the democratic leader, had
found that unanimous consent
would not be nrotracted after the
hour rule goes into effect. The agree
ment also provides that senators
shall be limited to ten minutes for
consideration or reservations.
The voting agreement was held
up temporarily and almost rejected
today by managers of the anti-beer
bill who, fearing this measure might
.be side tracked, forced Senator
Lodge to delay presenting the agree
ment. Speaking later for the prohibition:
