HIGH SCHOOL NOTES - The basketball season has opened for Mount Ayr. Last Friday evening the girls played the Lorimor girls on their court. They left Mount Ayr a little after dinner in OLNEY'S car for Benton, where they took the Great Western train to Lorimor. It was a fast game, but very rough, as the Lorimor girls played more boys' rules than girls'. The final score was 20 to 9 in
favor of Lorimor. Players on the Mount Ayr team were LEPLEY and TIMBY, forwards; GOODWIN and LAWHEAD, centers; and ROBERTS and STEPHENSON, guards.
DIAGONAL - A baby girl was born at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Frank SMITH on November 16.
