SOME OF LOCAL GOODS IDENT-IFIED AT LOGANSPORT HOME Sam Love, Local Young Man Also Involved in Affair— Booze Cause tf Arrest. The robbery of the Curren Groc-ery and the State Highway ea, some teva wee. ago, was believ& I- Ci have been solved the first of the week following the shooting of Orion Day of Logansport, at Delphi late Sunday while trying to escape from the officers. Day is supposed to have been the companion of Sam Love, a local young man who has spent the past several years in traveling from place to place, when the couple were stopped by Ko-komo police for investigation last Fri-day. It is said the couple had been drinking and were attracting much attention to themselves as they drove through the streets of Kokomo. So much so in fact , that police became suspicious and trailed the car. On stopping the car for investigation, one of the men escaped, but Sam Love was placed under arrest charged with carrying concealed weapons. When the officers returned for the car it was gone and all trace of the fugitive lost. However, officers were notified to be on the look- out and late Sunday night officers entered the home of a rela-tive of Day at Delphi to make the arrest. Day is said to have darted past of-ficers, who gave pursuit and a deputy sheriff fired at him as he fled from the house. The bullet took effect and Day fell, death being instantaneous. The Day home at Logansport was searched some time before this and much supposed loot discovered. Paul Caldwell of the local restaurant ac-companied officers to the Day home and identified a hunting coat stolen from the local restaurant in the rob-bery of a few weeks ago. Love is still in the Kokomo jail awaiting arrangement on a charge of carrying concealed weapons. It is very probable that other more serious charges may be placed against him as an accomplice of Day in the local robbery. The action against Love depends much on developments in the case within the next few days. Past Matrons Entertained at One O'clock Luncheon The Past Matrons Club was de-lightfully / entertained on Tuesday with a one o'clock luncheon at the home of Mrs. H. H. Weaver on East Main St. Miss Elizabeth Courts as-sisted the hostess. Covers were laid For eighteen members and three guests, the guests being Mrs. George Broughton of De-troit, Michigan; Mrs. Ettabell Neff of Findley, Ohio; and Miss Minnie Jones of Indianapolis. Mrs. D. C. Jenkins of Indianapolis was welcomed back into the club as a member. A color scheme of blue and yellow was carried out, with spring flowers ' adding a lovely note to the decora-tions. Mrs. Cora Fenn presided over the business session after which the host-ess introduced two clever drawing contests which were won by Mrs. Jen-kins and Mrs. Neff. The guests were presented with gifts of flowers from Mrs. Weaver. The Club prize was 1931 EMERALD NOW BEING DISTRIBUTED Senior Class Presents One of Best, If Not the Best, Annuals in Local School History. CONTAINS ONE HUNDRED AND TEN PAGES WITH COVER Embracing Six Books or Departments in Portraying Student Life in The Local School. The 1931 G. H. S. Emerald, the an-nual year book of the local high school published- 53r - L- Ke - nior Class, is now off the press and being distrib-uted to subscribers and others who desire a copy. The book was complet-ed last Friday and delivered to the school Monday morning, and from re-ports is receiving a ready sale. A limited number is available and if you have not subscribed for one and de-sire to purchase one, notify any mem-ber of the Senior class or Mr. Callis at once. It is only natural that each succeed-ing class try to outdo the preceding one in the publication of their annual, it is also reasonable to point out that such is the case, but this year the hook is more deserving of this honor, as it was published under the most trying of conditions, and yet the high standard has been maintained, with possibly a standard for oncoming classes to follow or duplicate. It is freely being commented on as one of the best, if not the best, ever publish-edin the history of the local school. The book consists of 98 pages of editorial and literary work, with six department division pages incased in a shale Loadstone cover with silver title lettering, and a modern fancy book fly leaves and division pages. The division pages are printed in a design of blue ink which gives much beauty to the book. The first book is taken up by the administration of the school and fol-lows the title and dedicatory pages. The dedication of the book was made to 1Vliss Lavonne Carr, primary teach-er of the local school for the past several years under whom most of the present graduating class began their school life. The dedication appears under a large picture of Miss Carr. The second book consists of classes, the senior, junior, sophomore, fresh-man, eighth grade and seventh grade in order. Activities follows this book with the staff picture, glee clubs and orchestras, with accounts of parties, receptions, etc. Athletics follow this. This book is probably the most com-plete athletic section ever published in an Emerald, giving complete scor-ing of the teams during the year, a tabulated table of former basketball years, and a page devoted to Coach King, and other athletic events. The complete with poems and stories by the pupils, all of a high order. The Almanac and Advertising section ' fol-lows, bringing the book to a close. Volume No. 12 of the Emerald con-tains pictures of the Advisory Board, trustee, Miss Carr, Mr. Collis, the faculty in panels, the seniors in pan-els, the junior class, the sophomore class, the freshman class, the eighth grade and the seventh grade; the staff, the girls glee club, the boys glee club, the senior orchestra, the junior or-chestra, coach King, individuals of the ten basketball players, the second team, the Junior high team, the base-ball team, the play picture, and snap-shots for the various classes. The book was produced by the Gem Printing Company, with the press work from the Acme Press of Koko-mo. It is a fine piece of the printers art, molded together according to the ideas of the Emerald Staff, and we be-lieve the work a credit to the staff and Jes ernuthir soon uv sure shoarte summirz goane doun inn histora — but itt wuz or gude wun.

The thirty- three members of the Jun-ior class was host to the twenty- two members of the Senior class and twelve special guests which included members of the faculty. The courtland hotel dining room presented a very pretty and inviting appearance with tasty decorations. Places were laid for the party at tables seating eight persons each. The tables were centered with bouquets of spring flowers and lighted with white tapers in black holders. Yellow daf-fodils were used as nut cups. Carry-ing out the senior colors, a canopy of blue and silver crepe paper was ar-ranged over the tables, while the Jun-ior flag of black and white was drap-ed on the wall. Entertainment was furnished for the occasion by Miss Evelyn Tyner at the piano and a group of young dancers. Miss Dorothy Cates._ presi ne i nor— aass, as toastmaster, wel-corned the guests of honor and Charles Lamb, president of the Senior clogs, responded. Principal C. D.

The latest among these young men brought to our notice is Merville " Fat" Larowe, who is ad-vancing step by step in the immense Snyder Packing Company organiza-tion. Mr. Larowe was recently ap-pointed superintendent of the Snyder plant at Medina, New York, fifty miles from Niagara Falls, which is one of the larger Snyder plants, can-ning peas, tomatoes, cherries and beans. Mr. Larowe moved his family from Marion to that place yesterday. Mr. Larowe began working for the company at Marion a few years ago as shipping clerk, and was later plac-ed in the assistant superintendent's position, and last summer took charge of a large plant near Medina where much labor trouble was being encourt-ered. He smoothed out the trouble and returned to his position in the Marion plant. Of course his appoint-ment comes as a very gratifying piece of news to his host of friends here, who join in wishing him success. " Merv" or " Fat" as he is known generally here, will be remembered as the star center of the great Legion basketball teani of a few years ago, and also a star high school center. He taught school for a few years be-fore associating himself with the Sny-der interests and has made good from the very start. " Hey Rue" ata time. Mark up two points for " Fat."
