Grand And Petit
Jurors Drawn
For New Term
VOLUME 88 ESTABLISHED IN 1859
Grand Jurors Will
Convene January 15
For New Term
Grand and petit jurors for the
January term of Noble county Com
mon Pleas court were drawn Mon
day morning at the office of Clerk
of Courts George L. Thompson with
Judge L. B. Frazier presiding.
Members of the Jury commission
are E. O. Bond and J. K. Walken
shaw, Sheriff Clayton McKee and
prosecutor Leo Carter also attended
the drawing.
Judge Frazier stated today that
the Grand Jury would be called for
duty on Wednesday morning, Jan
uary 15. The petit jurors are subject
to the call of Judge Frazier and it
is understood they will be called to
hear a number of Industrial Com
mission cases.
Believing that all things are equal,
even in the newspaper game, Bond
and Walkenshaw did the impossible,
Monday morning, when they drew
Clarence J. Estadt for duty on the
grand jury and a few minutes later
the name of John D. Wheeler was
drawn from the jury wheel for duty
as a petit juror.
Two ministers were also drawn on
the petit jury but they need not
serve in this capacity, unless they
so desire, according to law.
Another familiar face to Caldwell
on the petit jury is Rosa Clucus of
Batesville, former sheriff of Noble
county. There were only four
women named on both jurys for
the January term.
Immediately after the drawing,
Judge Frazier dismissed the petit
jurors who had been drawn for the
October term of court.
The grand jury is as follows: W.
J. Schott, Enoch Andrew Bates,
Marion A. W. King, Olive Clark
Bryan, Noble Gladys Groves, Buf
falo J. H. Law, Beaver C. G. Rob
inson, Brookfield Nellie Matheney,
Noble Levi Miller, Center John
Sklenar, Noble Brady Smith, Stock
Charles Hutchins, Olive William J.
Hill, Enoch Homer Edgar, Beaver
and Clarence Estadt, Olive.
The petit jury will be composed
of the following: Joe Thompson,

swarmed all over Caldwell, Mon
day afternoon, for the annual
Christmas candy treat and movie,

possible by liberal donations from
the merchants here.

An ideal day prevailed Monday
and the children took advantage
of it, arriving in such great num
bers that it was necessary to hold
a second and third showing of the
movies at the Noble theatre.
Chester Huprich, who has been
serving as chairman of this com
mittee for the past five years, ef
ficiently coped with the situation
and there was sufficient candy
and fruit for all. Santa Claus held
sway in the guise of Sheriff Clay

Wreck Car Tows
In Wrong Car
Eugene Ziler of the Ziler garage
on Mill and Miller street received
a call the other evening from the
ownei that his car was stalled at
the top of Perryopolis hill and
would they please tow it into the

Un-daunted by the snow flurries
and what have you, Ziler went out
on the call, saw a car parked on
the hill and brought it into the
garage.
Just prior to his return, the own

It will be remembered that
George L. Brown served as county
agent until March 20, 1946 and
Floyd Henderson was named to
fill this capacity on April 25. Mr.
Brown was sent to Vinton county,
after serving in Noble county for
12 years and eight months.
Henderson served in a similar
acity for Jackson county.
In Noble county last year, 27
farms were operated as crops, pas
ture and farm management demon
strations. The boys’ 4-H club pro
ject enrollment was up 67 percent
and the projects completed by the
boys, listed as 78 percent. The pre
mium awards for all club projects
were increased 100 percent over
those of previous years.
A cooperative feeder calf auction
was conducted by Noble and
Guernsev county breeders jointly.
Five farmers assisted with timber

tary in the extension office and
has held this position for eight
years and eleven months. During
the summer months, Miss Eleanor
Everly worked as 4-H club assis
tant for three months.
According to Mr. Henderson, the
return of military personnel to
their homes has improved the labor
situation on many farms. This
movement and the return of war
time industrial workers to Noble
county farms has caused many
rural ’homes to be occupied that
were vacant during the war years.
The 1945 census showed 518 farm
dwellings unoccupied.
The spread of rural electric ser
vice to all parts of Noble county is
one of the most encouraging local
developments, according to Mr.
Henderson. In 1945 only 35 percent
of the farms reported electric ser
vice.
The average farm in Noble
county contains 112.5 acres with 24
acres devoted to crops, 77 acres to

County Society
Organized Tg Aid
Crippled Children
Officers Named
Will Initiate
Social Program
Cald
At a meeting held in the
I well high school building Thurs
day evening, Dec. 19, an ozgamza
tion was advanced whicn v ill be
of incalculable service to the un
fortunate crippled children of
Noble county. The Noble County
Society for Crippled Children, a
group to be affiliated with the Ohio
Society for Crippled Children, Inc.,
will be headed by Harold Morgar
eidge, of the First National Bank,
as its first president.
Other individuals named to as
sist Mr. Morgareidge in formulat
ing an active county organization,
include: Z. W. Mallett, of Summer
field, vice president H. C. Secrest,
county sc o o 1 superintendent,
treasurer and Wallace C. Blake,,
of Dexter City, secretary.
Mrs. Marian Wells, representa
tive of the Ohio society, was pres
ent and outlined in detail the pur
pose of such an organization. In
organizing the local society, Mrs.
Wells spoke encouragingly of the
worthiness of such a society in
Noble county, and pointed out, that
Noble was one of the few counties
in the state without an active or
ganization to aid its crippled chil
dren
In discussing the new society, the
state representative stressed that a
program must be initiated by the
officers and that such a program
should be dedicated to the phys
ical care, special education, and
vocational guidance for the
crippled children within its scope.
The means to carry on this so
cial work will be derived from the
annual sale of Easter seals, some
thing that is not entirely new to
the people of this county. In years
past, Noble county has responded
to this sale, but the funds taken
from their sale, were forwarded
directly to Columbus.
With the Noble County Society
for Crippled Children now func
tioning as an organization, funds
derived from the sale of the Easter
seals will be divided, 70 percent
will be retained to carry on local
social work, and the remaining 30
percent will be forwarded to the
uhio society. The annual Easter
seals sale has been sponsored by the
Ohio society since 1936.
At the meeting in the high school
building, movies were shown to
the group present of the camp for
crippled children which operates
through the efforts of the Ohio
society, and made possible by the
sale of Easter seals.
The by-laws of the Noble county
society imply that the society shall
be non-partisan and non-sectarian
and is not permitted to enter into
membership with other groups or
organizations. Although the society
is permitted to cooperate with con
ference groups working for the
welfare of the crippled or other
wise physically handicapped.
It is expected that a meeting of
the newly named officers and in
terested individuals will be held
in the near future, at which time
additional plans for the organization
will be mapped out.
REPRESENTATIVE HERE
A representative of the Internal
Revenue department will be in
Caldwell at the postoffice building,

ates and income tax returns. An

R. D. Buckey Secures
Hammer Mill Agency
R. D. Buckey has been appointed
local headquarters for the famous
Harvey Red Hed Hammer Mill.
This is the machine that enables
farmers to grind their feed 1/3
faster and to make 4 bushels of
feed equal 5 in dairy or meat pro
duction. Government Experiment
Stations say that grinding grains,

creases feeding values 20 to 40 per
cent.
The local dealer stated that this
new Red Hed Hammer Mill accom
plishes these labor and feed sav
ings by utilizing the principle of
fly wheel momentum. Due to the
unique grinding chamber design
and the tremendous impact of the
hammer heads, nearly all the ear
and shelled corn is ground in one
trip from feed opening to screen.
This large grinding' chamber
creates a hammer head speed of
approximately 15,000 feet per sec
ond.
