KATE HULL THE WINNER
Elected County Superintendent on
the Sixth Ballot, at the Elec
tion Held on Tuesday.
Miss Kate Hull was elected as
£ounty superintendent at the meet
ing of the presidents of the school
boards of Decaur county, held at
the county auditor's office Tuesday
afternoon, 011 the sixth ballot, after
a spirited contest in which Miss Hull
was tied with Miss Margaret Hurst,
each receiving thirteen votes on
three ballots, l)tyt on the sixth and
last ballot, one vote was changed
from Miss Hurst to,Miss Hull, which
elected her by a vote of 14 to 12.
There were three candidates for the
office, Miss Mabel Horner who has
been county superintendent for five
years, having announced that she
"would not again be a candidate.
On the first ballot C. B. Wood
stock, of Lamoni, had 4, Miss Kate
Hull 12 and Miss Margaret Hurst
10.
On the second, third and fourth
ballots, the two ladies were tied
with 13 votes each, Woodstock be
ing dropped after the first ballot.
On the fifth ballot Woodstock
again had one vote, Miss Hull 13
and Miss Hurst 12.
The sixth ballot gave Miss Hull
14 and Miss Hurst 12.
Miss Kate Hull, the new su"erin
tendent, will take charge of the
office on September 1st for a term of
three years, and that she will give
entire satisfaction goes without say
ing, as she is especially well quali
fied for the position. Miss Hull
graduated from the Leon High
School, and later graduated from
the State Teachers College at Cedar
Falls, and also from Iowa Wesleyan
College at Fairfield, and then took
graduate work at the University at
Chicago. She has had several years
experience as a teacher, teaching in
rural and graded schoolgin Decatur
county, in the Leon and Garden
Grove schools, and was assistant
principal of the Grand River schools."
For the past four years she has
taught in Iowa Wesleyan College,
and also during the summer has
taught in the State Teachers Col
lege. This gives her a very wi^e
experience, and under her super
vision the schools of Decatur county
will continue to progress as they
have under the supervision of Miss
Horner.
Miss Hull was tendered a re-elec
tion on the faculty of Iowa Wesjeyan
College for the coming year, but the
desire to be with her aged mother
who'resides in Leon, induced her to
enter the race for -county superin
tendent. ..
Yellow and Pink Cards.
The committees for the raising of
the Third Liberty Loan Bonds in
Decatur county have been supplied
with pink and yellow cards to be
filled our. for each person.
The pink card shows that the per
son \55araed thereon has declined to
purchase his fair share in bonds of
the Third Liberty Loan, while the
yellow card shows that the person
therein named has absolutely de
clined to "help our government's
war activities, refusing the purchase
of the Third Liberty Loan Bonds."
These cards are to be made in dupli
cate, one of which is to be sent to
the Federal Reserve Director of
jSales of the United States govern
ment War Service and one to be
given the county chairman and to be
kept on file in the county.
The county lias been allotted its
proportion of the loan and each pres
ent has been given its quota of the
county in proportion to the wealth
in the various precincts, then the
committees of the precincts will ar
rive at the proportion of the wealth
of each individual according to what
proportion his wealth bears to the
whole amount in that territory.
Each person will be expected to
buy these bonds in accordance with
his or her wealth and if they do not
they are refusing to aid and assist
the" government in carrying on the
war. Let every person do his very
best in subscribing for these bonds,
the campaign and subscriptions for
the same will commence on the 6th
day of April.

Fine Barn Destroyed.
The fine new barn on the farm of
A. L. Ackerley, a mile, northeast of
Leon, was struck by lightning and
burned about 9:30 o'clock Tuesday
evening, together with a large
amount of feed, including 600 bush
els of oats, 100 bushels of corn, 25
tons of hay, two to three tons of
shorts and ground feed, 25 bushels
of seed corn, harness and other ar
ticles. The adjoining sheds were
also destroyed and a big sow with
eleven tpigs, and several head of
shoats were burned. The old barn
on the place was also damaged con
siderably, catching from the new
barn. The barn was a fine one, erect
ed last year, and was modern
throughout, the loss on barn and
•contents being from $3,500 to $4,
000. Mr. Ackerley has insurance
which will probably cover half his
loss.

was accompanied by a woman who
was also arrested and taken to jail,
and 288 pints of whiskey were
found in the car. Later in the day
the driver, William (Dutch) Cross,
a notorious character of Des Moines,
and the woman who gave her name
as Mrs. Hazel Cross, showing a
marriage certificate that they were
married at Albany, Mo., the previous
day, were taken before Justice War
ford, where they waived preliminary
examination on two charges, boot
legging and illegally transporting
liquor, and thev were bound over to
the grand jury" under $500 bonds in
each case, in default of which they
are in jail.
Monday evefiing Sheriff Fulton
caught another booze car, a Clial
niersvroadster, with Iowa license
No. 265917 on the rear, and a paste
board No. 209,499 on the front, a
couple of miles south of Leon 011
the Davis City road. When search
ed it was found to contain about 400
nints of whiskey. The driver giving
his name as Harry Wilson,
of
Des
Moines, and the woman with him
giving her name as Mrs. May Wil
son, were bound over to the grand
jury on two counts, after waiving
preliminary examination, the man
tfnder bonds of $500 on each count
and the woman under $250 bonds in
each case, and they are also in jail.
Tuesday evening a fellow giving
his name" as Harris Wallace Parr,
driving a big Chandler with Iowa
license No. 74,210, slid into a ditch
just south of Leon on the Davis City
road, and came to Leon to get
chains and a truck to pull him out,
but when he got back to the car
sheriff Fulton was there waiting for
him, and placed hitn under arrest.
The car contained about 500 pints
of whiskev. Parr was placet^ in
jail, and yesterday morning he ap
peared before justice Warford, and
waived preliminary, and was bound
over under $500 bonds on each of
two counts, and he is also in jail.
Not a bad haul to make in four
days, but only -a drop in the bucket
as far as the booze whiyli goes
through this county from St. Joe,
enroute to Des Moines.

Monday evening a public recep
tion was held at the opera house at
Davis City, which was packed and
the yard was also filled, all eager to
pay their respects to their sailor
boy, and hear him describe his ex
periences. Ralph finally reached
New York last week, ana was given
a furlough to visit his parents, but
has to report for duty again April

Tne reception was presided over
by Geo) P. Campbell, the stage be

Spanish war veteran, George Poush,
and one of our new soldier boys, L.

by Rev. Shugg, aud singing the "Star

hero of the evening, Ralph Bail
ey. Ralph is only nineteen years
old, and never made a public speech
in his life, so no attempt at oratory
was indulged in, but he just rambled
away and old of some of his ex
periences in the navy and of the
terrible trip of fourteen days in the
open boat, all the time speaking
lighly of his own part, just as if 't
was a part of his daily routine, and
taking no credit for his being in
charge of the boat. We had a
shorthand reporter on the ground
and took down his talk as we feel
sure that all our readers will bey

just out 'when a hydro-plane came
out and told us there- was a sub
marine just ahead of us. He went
with us until about 4 o'clock, then
we kept on bv ourselves, then we
got stabbed. "I was sitting below
studying French, felt a quiver,
shake, knew we were hit. I asked
the gunner mate what we were to
do—take to the boats. We were on
the bridge where the wheel is.
They came down off the bridge. It
was my -job to lower the boats—
they got in, the chief gunner fell in
the water, 1 slid down. It was up
to" me to take charge of the boat.
We pulled away from the ship.

them take of the water what they

we got so we couldn't eat the crack

The 10th day out we sighted land.
We were going to sail in, about 20

in anv way made correct, but it is
the opinion of the committee that
the allotments for the county are
fairlv well distributed. In some
precincts the plan will not work
just in proportion as it will in other
precincts more favorably situated,
but on the whole, it is our opinion
that the work can be better perform
ed under this plan than any plan
heretofore used.
The people are responding loyally
in making the preparations for the
campaign. The government does
not expect nor wish to do injustice
to any individual, but the money
necessary to carrying on the war
must be raised. This plan has been
adonted. We must use this plan
until a better one has been devised,
and the people of Decatur county
who are at home enjoying the com
