John E .Freeland, first president of the Ringgold county Historical Society, has tendered his resignation, and his successor, the executive committee of the society has appointed Homer I. Calkin, Ph.D., a native of Ringgold county and an alumnus of the Clearfield High School and the State University of Iowa.

Mary Margaret Bird, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Bird, and Drexel Jackson, son of Mrs. Elmer Tidrick, were united in marriage in the home of the bride's parents on March 9. The single ring ceremony was performed by the Rev. I. B. Ruffner. Attendants of the couple were her sister, Dorothy Bird, and Robert McCreary. They are at home on a farm one-half miles west of Kellerton.

Florence Abarr, junior at the Northwest Missouri State Teachers College in Maryville, and two other music students accompanied their professor, John Geiger, to Tarkio, MO last weekend as representatives of the college at the annual speech and music Tarkio meet and festival.

Four boys under the directorship of Mr. Meyers, who prepared a play for the festival on March 22, presented it for the Ringgold County Historical Society last week. The comedy is entitled "If Men Played Bridge as Women Do."

Roy M. Hopkins, who was recently appointed as guard at the state penitentary at Fort Madison, went Thursday to assume his duties.

STUDENT AYR - The Mount Ayr debate teams scored a decisive victory in the Class B division of the McCahill debate tournament last week at Drake University by winning over nine other competitors.

Members of the negative team were Bob Spence and Ruth Euritt.
