The third annual tri-county ladies corn husking contest will be held tomorrow at a field north of Blockton. The contest is open to women of Ringgold and Taylor counties and Worth County, MO. Last year's winner over eleven contestants was Mr. Carl WYMAN, of Benton township, and Mrs. Roy SICKELS, of Mount Ayr was second.

Judge Homer A. FULLER has been appointed senior judge of the military registrants, advisory board of the third judicial district of Iowa. The boards give assistance to registrants in preparing questionnaires, claims and similar papers.
