As a result of their victory, the Monarchs will meet Cardington high school, of Morrow county, at 2:15 p.m. Saturday.

Albert (above), pastor of the First English Lu theran church of East Main at 22nd Street, Columbus, will be the first preacher in the Sunday eve ning Lenten services sponsored by the men’s groups of five Marys ville churches. The first' service is scheduled for this Sunday evening beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the Methodist church. Pastor Albert is a graduate of Wittenberg College and Hamma Divinity school.

He served congregations in Springfield and Lorain before be ginning his present pastorate Columbus in August of 1946f. is a member of the board of rectors of Wittenberg College. in He di- as In announcing Rev. Albert the preacher for March 4, the sponsoring men’s groups from the five Marysville churches believe those attending the service will be led to a fuller spiritual under standing of the meaning of Lent. The men’s groups emphasize the fact that these special Lenten wor ship services are open to all people of Marysville. the March Roars In Like Proverbial Lion rHigh Winds, Bain March came in like a lion last night, with high winds sweeping the country side in true pre-spring style. There were scattered show ers over the Marysville area last night, with .32 inches recorded by the local weather bureau. Marysville has been enveloped in generally warm temperatures since Monday, with the high of 660 degrees being recorded at noon on Monday. Low temperatures of 24 degrees occurred Wednesday night. High est low temperature was reported at 10:30 Thursday (today) with 42 degrees registered on the wea ther bureau’s thermometer.

Monarchs Have Bad Night In their game against Lancaster St. Marys yesterday, the Monarchs were really having a bad night, but the Irish, if anything, were worse. As a result, fans saw little good basketball in this game. Nothing Marysville could do was timing was off, their floor work was erratic. 9nd to top it off, the Monarchs missed all kinds of ordin arily easy shots. Coach Warren Widner was quite thankful to have his team leave the floor the winner. Actually, the Monarchs won the game by building up a big lead, then staving off a Lancaster rally. At one time, Marysville enjoyed a lead of 24-7, then saw it slowly shrink as the Irish began perking up. The locals were in front 9-4 at the end of the first quarter and 27-16 at the halfway mark. The third quarter margin was cut to 34-26 as Lancaster outscored the Monarchs 12-8, but in the last per iod each team netted nine points to make the final tally 43-35. Cardington Tough Team Observers are generally agreed that a game Saturday of the type they played yesterday will mean “curtails” for the Monarchs’ title hopes. Cardington is an excellent basketball team and has created a favorable impression in its two ap pearances to date. Although they have a record of 18 victories and six defeats dur ing their season and were only the runner-up team of Morrow county, the Cardington eagers have look ed plenty tough at Westerville. Bdilt around a tall (6 ft. 4 in.) lad named Kelley, and with a pair of fast moving guards, Cardington will provide plenty of trouble for (CnnttniiPd mt Patr* 2.

The old steel bridge which was erected in 1914 over Mill Creek, callapsed March 3, on last year. The new structure replaces the old bridge and a small concrete beam overflow bridge nearby and relocates the approaches to the bridge, eliminating a sharp, dan gerous curve at the east end of the structure.

W. Carr, superintendent of Marysville schools, said today that most high school students are not good readers, and this hamper them when they go on to collegt after graduation. Mr. Carr recalled statement made recently by Dr. Gerald Saddlemire, director of counseling at Wittenberg College in Spring field, to the effect that lack of good reading habits can s e i o u sly hamper the college student. These difficulties should have been clear ed- up in grade school, he added. By way of helping overcome this difficulty, Marysville schools now offer a course in reading improve ment, Mr. Carr said. The course is taught to seventh grade students each year and this year only is also being offered to eighth grade pu pils for one semester as well. The main object of the course is to quicken the reading speed and this is achieved by an electrical “reading guide” that moves down the page of the student’s book, leaving only one line at a time ex posed. At the beginning of the year the student is tested for reading speed and the speed of the reading guide is slowly accelerated so that the pupil will have to read faster in order to keep up with the guide. "In this way, the pupils do learn to read faster, and better” Mr. Carr said. “We do know, from ex tensive testing in our larger uni versities, that the student who reads quickly also retains more material than the slow reader. We hope to improve reading habits in our students while they are still at the age where correction is feas ible.” The reading course, one of the more advanced developments of the school program, is taught by Mrs. Warren Widner. Mr. Carr added, “While it is still too soon to tabulate any final re sults of the course, we feel that the reading habits of the children are being improved. Each student can be helped. The child who is pos sible college material, especially, should formulate good reading practices.” To Attend Mee! Fourteen speech students from Marysville high school will attend the Western Ohio District Tourna ment of the National Forensic League at Bowling Green State University. The group leaves to morrow morning and returns after the tournament ends on Saturday.
