Four participants tied, and the real
excitement began when it was neces

winners. The cup represents the
amateur trap clay championship of
North America. This national shoot
is the culmination of all trap shoot

Harold Finley To Northwestern
Harold Finley, aged 13, son of
jftdge and Mrs. Harry M. Finley,
has decided to enter Northwestern
university at JSvanston, 111., this
fall. He was considered strongly
for one of the ten Austin scholar
ships given at that University, and
the only reason he was not grant
ed one of these scholarships was
because of his Hjge. These ten boys
who have the Austin scholarships
reside in Hinman hall and have a
proctor. Since young Finley was
not granted an Austin scholarship,
he received the next best which is
a university scholarship of $200, and
which w^s granted him on his
splendid record as a student. He al
so had reserved for him, a place in
Hinman hall, with the young men
who received the Austin scholar
ships, and will be with them under
the same proctor.
M. & M. Stands Thinl In State
The report from the state-wide
eighth grade examination, given
last May, tha subjects being arith
metic, geography, history and gram
mar, shows that M. & M. schools
took third place. Newcomerstown
and Middleport tied for first place,
and M. & M. was next. The aver
age grade of the pupils of a scliooi
was figured as the grade of that
particular school. When it is taken
into consideration that better than
3 000 schools of the 8S counties in
the state took the same examina
tion, for M. & M. to stand so near
the top is a thing to be proud of. It
also demonstrates that the best
eighth grade students are from the
smaller schools, which show\ they
get more thorough training than do
the pupils of the larger schools.

Discover 40 Pints Of Liquor
Last Saturday while several boys
were playing out the Zanesville
road, in the field at what is known
as the Ed Cox place, they found
hidden in the grass ten bottles of
booze, which they reported here to
Marshal Drury and Sheriff Henery.
That evening the officers named
went to the spot, hiding themselves
near by, thinking that the "cus
tomer," or "customers," would like
ly go to the place to get their week
end supply. While hiding in the
weeds and hedge, about 200 feet
from where the boys had discovered
the booze, they ran .onto a nest of
36 pints, which they took into cus
tody for evidence and safe keeping.
So far as we have been able to
learn, no one has gone to the sher
iff to ask for his "property." The
liquor is said to be of better qual
ity than the ordinary run of present
day whiskey.

convention, attracted very favorable

gion Post in the state, with a band.
Wrhile the smallest in number of any
band present, the general comment
heard was that it was one of the
very best.
The band members, practically all
of whom are members of the Amer
ican Legion, and other members of
the Legion from the local post, all to
the number of about 40, returned
early Tuesday morning. The Amer
ican Legion parades, with their
bands, all in fine uniforms, are quite
an imposing sight.
