work in conformity to the plans of
men. The work consists of sinking the
huge cement posts with wire calbles at
tached to them und on these cables
large trees are tied. The posts are
hollow, about a foot square and twen
ty feet long. They are sunk to a depth
where the top of the post is far below
tho bottom of the stream so there is
no danger of their ever washing out.
It is the tree left swinging in the wa
ter above the post that produces the
breakwater and causes the sift to be
deposited, forming a bar with the tree,
eventually embedded In the bar. The
sinking of the posts is accomplished
simply by pumping the sand from the
inside of the post by means of a pow
erful centrifugal pump. The sand un
derneath the post is sucked in contin
uously through the aperture made for
the purpose .In the bottom end of the
post. As the sand Is removed from
under the post the post settles down
farther and farther as long as thev
pumps keep working.
During the yea^ of 1919, the Iowu
Fleece Wool growers Association,
which is an association formed by the
sheep men of Iowa handled 1,200,000
pounds of wool for their 3,500 mem
bers In the state. This wool brought
on an average of G2c a pound. Be-,
fore this association began handling
the 19191 orop of wool, local specula
tors offered 35 to 40c for wool, regard
less of the grade or the quality. Later,
when the Fleece Wool Growers Asso
ciation took up the work of marketing
the wool, local speculators advanced
their prices to 45c, 50c and even 52c
per pound. Even considering this lat
ter price of 52c. the association was
able to save many dollars for the
sheep men of Iowa.^
A donation of 50,000 was given by
students of the Iowa State college at
Ames towards a memorial building
honoring the services of 103 men and

will be erected some time next year.

The people of Mount Vernon, Linn
county, claim the world's record for
school attendance in that it has a,
higher percentage of young people in
school beyond the eighth grade than
any other like community in the
world. A recent investigation made in
connection with a father and son ban
quet shows that there are only five
young men in this town of 1,700 popu

MANILLA, July 6—Special—
The first meeting of the crowd known
as the O. M. C. inet at the home oi'
the president, Mrs. Mary Graham on
Tuesday afternoon, June 22, 1920.
At this meeting, the mothers are
supposed to be the guests of the com
pany but only six were privileged to
attend. These were Mrs. J. L. McLeod,
Airs. O. C. Oleson, Mrs. Brokaw, Mrs
Conner, Mrs. J. 1'. Barber and Mrs.
Roderick.
The members from a distance wore:
Mrs. Ollie McLeod, of Clalt, la.. Mrs. A.
S. Avery, of Omaha, Miss Sayde Neely,
of Council Bluffs, Mrs. Myrtle Cutler,
Shuart, of Council Bluffs. Mrs. Nellie
Miller of Sioux City, and Mrs. Mary
Alexander of Coldwater, Kansas.
The president gave the address of
welcome and Mrs. Myrtle Shuart gave
the first response which was enlarged
upon by each of the visiting members.
Letters! were read from Mrs. Dottle
Saunders, of Avery. Idaho, and Airs.
Maye Smith Bagge, of Fonda, Iowa.
All hearts were saddened by the
empty chair oC one of the members
yet all recalled the many pleasant
gatherings that "Abbie" had enjoyed
with them and the kind words and
"deeds of the one who had gone on.
An hour or two of social intercourse
reminiscences, fun and laughter filled
up the time until refreshments were
served. This caused a slight lull in the
commotion but the enjoyment seemed
just as sincere and there was left no
doubt of the appreciation When the
cleared dishes were returned to the
kitchen. After this, all repaired to
the lawn where the photographer
caused a likeness to be Imprinted upon
a film which will go down In all history
as the first gathering of the O. M. C.
Wednesday afternoon the festivities
were transferred to the lovely homo
of Mrs. Ida McCracken at which sev
eral invited guests were present. Aluch
of the time was spent in visiting and
ihe recalling of incidents of days gone
hy.
During the program we listened to
an account of the llrat meeting held,
which Instigated the idea of the present
O. M. C. club. This was read by Mrs.
Maud Dyson and was taken fropi 'The
Manilla Times" of 1904. The plcturc
taken at that time bears mute testi
many of those who were present at
that meeting. Another paper of ho
year 1905 read by .Mrs. Mary Jahn told
of the meeting held in the K. of P.
hall and al,s. there was the picture
to recall the faces as we looked In
younger days. A new bible story of the

This is the llrst visit he has made to
Iowa In three years and probably will
he Ills last, as he is no longer able
to stand a cross-continent trip. There
are now living seven former governors
of Iowa with Gov. Boies as the Nestor.
Of the former governors, Jackson,
