The village of Sears faces the pos
sibility of having its postofflce re
moved. Vncle Sam has been try ns
for over a year to secure some one to
take charge of his business in that
locality but has thus (ar made no
headway and unless the situation i
changes in the near future prestntt

mrnt was then nade with Mr. CcTip
be'.l to continue handlinx the work
until a successor could be chosen. A j
second test was attempted with the '
same result. Recently Mr. Campbell
reiterated again to the postal authcrl-'
ties his desire to set off the sovern-1
ment payroll and a third examination
was arranged for today and once
more the job went begging.
Argument for Annexation.
The position at Sears pays about
$200 a year, based on the number of
stamps cancelled. Refusal of Mr.
Campbell to continue longer in the
position and inability to secure a
successor will, it is believed, result
In the abolishing of the Sears post
office. The situation presents one of the
strongest possible arguments for the
annexation of Sears to Rock Island.
Should this occur a sub-postal station
could be located there and probably
city carrier service established, as It
is thought that the village has the

The city carrier service would be
of the greatest convenience to the
Sears people and a vast improvement
over the present plan.

FIRST REVERSE IN
AUGUSTANA COLLEGE SLUMPS IN
BASKETBALL AND HEDDING
WINS 31 TO 21.
Long Ibland City veneer mills fear

scarcity due to interruption of ship-
ping by war. - 1
Augustana lost to Heddins last night
by a score of 31 to 21. bein? the only
defeat Augustana has received on the
home floor this season. The game was
close throughout, and it was only in
the last few minutes of play that Hea
ding widened the margin, although
they led by a few points all through
the game. The Aujrustana team aid
not show the class of basketball d.s-
played In the Bradley game xast week,
and missed many trys for points which
'should have counted. Heading, on the
other hand, displayed good tt-aiu work
and accurate basket shooting.
Hedding led cS from the start and
during the first "naif ma.mainc-d a !eai
of from one to four points. This lead
was increase! before the whistle
sounded to seven points, and the first
half ended 19 to 13 for Heid ng. In
the deciding period the Swedes tried
hard to overcome lh visitors" leaJ,
and with the guards v.orkin?: hard,
succeeded in hold'ns? the visitors down
for while, once having only three.
points to make in order to tie the
score. The laft part of the game be
longed entirely to the visitors, how
ever, and they easily increased their
lead to 10 points.
Young starred for the visitors dur
ing the first part of the game, but was
handicapped by a sprained ankle dur
ing the las part of the closing half.
Case and Trevor were the other heavy
poipt-makers for Hedding, although
the latter had four personal fouls
against him. Hedding's -guarding ma
chine also worked well.
