I FROM SUMMER TO WINTER WITH TWO DAY'S TIME The uncertainty of Indiana weather was demonstrated well this week as the warm sunshine of Sunday turned into a brisk snow on Wednesday morning, with a low temperature. The weather conditions for the past two months has been a great hind-rance to the farmers in getting out their crops. The rains and cool at-mosphere has made such work in ad-visable. There will not be any April corn planting this year, and many of the boys have not sowed their oats yet. The fields which have been sowed look fine and the wheat is coming a-long splendidly. All indications point to a late crop this year. HIGHSCHOOL ANNUAL OUT TUESDAY MORN " Emerald" Published by The Senior Class Makes Annual Appearance and Meets Ready Demand.

LAW ADDS INTEREST AND PENALTY TO DELINQUENT Other Provisions of Law Pointed Out In Understandable Manner For Taxpayers' Information. " Much confusion exists", says a statement made by Harry Miesee, secretary of the Indiana Taxpayers' Association, " relative to Indiana tax-es that have gone delinquent or which ' may become delinquent if no part is paid on or before the first Monday in May. In order to clarify the situation we are calling attention to the fact ' that an act of the special session of the Indiana General Assembly, last summer, must be read in connection with an act of the recent regular ses-sion, as each concerns taxation and is of the utmost importance to the peop-le of Indiana." The law approved at the special session, Mr. Miesse points out, pro-vided that the taxes for 1931, payable ordinarily in 1932, and the taxes for each year thereafter, would become payable at the office of the various county treasurers on or before the first Monday in May and the first Monday in November of each succeed-ing year. This law says: " If any in-stallment of taxes shall not be paid when the same shall be due such in-stallment shall be returned delinquent, and a penalty of 3 per cent on the a-mount of such installment shall be added thereto. In addition to the ; penalty of : 3 per cent herein provided, I interest at the rate of 8 per cent ari-l num on the amount of such install- ; menc from the date of such delinquen- , cy to the time of payment, shall be cherged and paid or collected with ' such delinquent installment and pen-alty in the matter nrovided for the collection oi delinquent taxes; pro -- vided anylo at any tmie, ; pay any r o ents, the first v hich shall e less than one- half of the full a- ; mount of such installment, and the I second payment shall be the entire ; balance with the penalty and interest Liberty 4- H Club To Hold First Meeting Monday — The Liberty Township 4- H Club will hold its first meeting at the school building on Monday, May 1 at 2 o'clock. Miss Mary Cannor, the county club leader will be present to discuss the club work. All girls in-terested in club work be present at this meeting, as this will also be the organization meeting of the club. Let's have a 100% club this year.
