Mount Ayr Record-News
Mount Ayr, Ringgold County, Iowa
Thursday, February 06, 1941

by Chanse Hall, Mount Ayr Record-News

Jerry Klejch, of Washington township, and Leo Saltzman of Poe township, have been elected chairman and secretary, respectively, of the Ringgold County Planning Committee.

The interest in the Mount Ayr Livestock Market held by Floyd S. Miller, of Creston, was purchased recently by the other two owners, F. B. Maloy and Glen Dixon. Community sales have been held every Tudsday and special horse and mule sales have been held Thursdays since the business was established in Mount Ayr on December 5, 1919.

Alpha Ann Bonebrake, sophomer of the Diagonal High School, won a superior rating in the district declamatory contest held Friday evening in Missouri Valley. The other Ringgold county student to compete in the district contest was Nellie Lou Wroughton, also of Diagonal, who received an excellenty rating. Ina Napier, principal of the High School, is the dramatic instructor.

Two hours were required for four peace officers - Sherrif H. P. Todd, Deputy Sheriff C. E. Hoover, Patrolman James Macholz and Marshal Ora Harsh - to destroy approximately 1,200 pints of whiskey seized January 25, when John H. Clifford was arrested by Patrolmen Macholz and Joe Dixon. The whiskey, weighing 2,500 pounds was hauled to the city dumpgrounds in a county truck and the four men broke the bottles by throwing them against a cement slab. Bottles which missed the mark were broken when the peace officers tested their shooting eyes with a rifle.


  • Born, to Mr. and Mrs. Joe Campbell, of Benton, January 30, a daughter, Donna Jean. Weight, ten and one-half pounds.

  • SOUTH CREEK - Mr. and Mrs. Chet Gibson are the proud parents of a baby girl, born Wednesday in the Leon hospital. She has been named Joyce Ann.
