Mount Ayr Record-News
Mount Ayr, Ringgold County, Iowa
Thursday, August 28, 1941

by Chanse Hall, Mount Ayr Record-News

Raymond Ayers, son of Mr. and Mrs. Leo Ayers, of Jefferson township, received the highest score in the county 4-H health clinic held August 18. Raymond Ball, son of Mr. and Mrs. Verl Ball, of Tingley township, was the second highest scoring boy in the clinic. Raymond Ayers will represent Ringgold county at the state 4-H health contest in connection with the Iowa State Fair.

Land north of Mount Ayr, owned by J. P. Fife and his father since 1876, this week was deeded to the state of Iowa. The area, containing approximately 40 acres, is known to nearly everyone as Fife's Grove. It is expected that it will be made into a park site.
