NINETY-FOURTH
COUNTY FAIR ON
AUG. 28-29-30
Business Men Are
Asked To Give More
And Better Cooperation
The ninety-fourth annual Noble
county fair will be held on Wednes
day, Thursday, and Friday, August
28, 29, and 30, according to an an
nouncement made today by members
of the fair board. Regular meeting
of the board was held Saturday, at
which time extensive plans were dis
cussed toway making this fair en
tirely different, bigger and better.
W. K. Conner, J. K. Walkenshaw,
N. H. Bigley, George McKee, D. A.
Caldwell, O. J. Lorenz, John Wal
ters, Ray Elswick, and G. B. Long
were all in Columbus last week at
tending the Ohio fair managers con
vention at the Deshler-Wallick hotel.
Dates for the Noble county fair
were determined at this meeting.
Members pointed out that the local
fair would be held the same week as
the Ohio State fair. There are only
two other county fairs in the entire
state on the above dates, which
means that many more concessions
will move to
since they do

Different Fair
Members of the Noble County
Agricultural society are desirious of
making the ninety-f iurth fair in
Caldwell entirely different from
those held in the past.
To accomplish this, they are ask
ing and should receive more coopera
tion from the businessmen of Cald

right in their belief, The Journal
will start the ball rolling by spon
soring a loving cup to be given to

29. Final decision as to whether it
will be the fastest heat in one par

It is hoped that some other busi

tthrough and award a loving cup for
the fastest heat on Friday’s pro

DELINQUENT LAND
TO DE FORFEITED
TO THE STATE
Board of Revisions
Now Functioning
In Preparing Sale
According to information released
by County Auditor Ray McVay re
garding the publication of the land
land carried on the delinquent tax
list, it will be accomplished as soon
as official mandatory clearance is
completed. This comment followed
a meeting of the board of revisions,
which consist of the chairman of
the board of county comm ssioners,
Ray Shriver, Auditor McVay, Treas
urer Ira Pryor, County Prosecutor
Leo Carter, and hired clerk, Miss
Donna Wells.
Auditor McVay and his associates
face this work with the zeal of hon
est public servants. To arrange all
the delinquent land already pub
lished in its proper respective, is in
deed a most ted.ous task. To assure
correctness in every detail, Auditor
McVay has taken definite precau
tions and has double checked each
sal0 separately.
Disposition of the delinquent land
will be processed in two separate
classifications. They are, firstly, for
feiting the lands to the state, and
secondly, by an outright foreclosure
order /to the county prosecuting at
torney. According to Auditor
Vay, the first method is more
ceptable under local conditions,
consequently the majority of
list will be processed in this man
ner. Regardless of the placed clas
sification, local officials will be in
charge of the disposition.
Mc
ac-
and
the
The board is now working on the
delinquent list in Noble township.
Due to the mineral rights, abandon
ment of property, etc., it is believed
that this will be the biggest head
ache preparatory to selling the land.
When this township has been com
pleted, the board expects smoother
sailing.
The board of revisions and Clerk
Wells is located in the office used
by the commissioners for their regu
lar meetings. As much as possible,
it is being maintained separately
from the routine work in the audi
tor’s office, wrich is being handled
by the two regular deputies.
