On Toe day afternoon at 2 p. m. the
* Ladies’ Aid of the Immanuel Lutheran
Church met at the home of Mrs. Will
£ M&nske. It had so far been the custom
of the Aid: First business and then
pleasure; the pleasure namely constat-
ing in the partaking of a display of
fine eats, but the hostess, Mrs. Man-
ske, turned the table on us this time,
first presenting the pleasure side, so
as to give more vigor for the business
part, which actually worked out that
way. As the members and guests ar-
rived they were agreeably greeted
with a fine plate lunch and refresh*
ments, served by the hostess, Mrs.
Manske, assisted by Miss H'ldegarde
Although it took some time to get
over the surprise, the president, Mrs.
W. J. Krueger, finally considered it
time to transact some business before
the evening was spent and called the
members to order. The meeting was
opened in the usual way by song and
prayer. Sixteen members responded
to the roll call—besides the members
some eight visitors were present. Af-
ter all old and tabled business was
taken care of the pastor invited the
members to assist the W. L. Society

CUBS HOLD ITASCA TO <M> SCORE
In one of the beBt games ever
played by a Clifton High School team
the Cubs held the heavy Itasca team
on even term's and finally ended the
game in a scoreless tie. Outweighed
about 20 pounds to the man, the lo-
cal boys were forced to make up for
this handicap by an increase irt speed,
quick thinking and the “old fighting
spirit.” This they did to a perfection.
Not only was the score even but the
teams played on practically even
terms throughout the entire game.
Itasca made 13 first downs to the
Cubs’ 7, but the extra yardage on the
Cliftoh downs most of which was by
long passes and the number of times
the Cub defense smeared the Itasca
plays back of the line of scrimmage
for losses made the total yardage
gained about even. Another advantage
the Cubs held was in the net gains
on punts. Windham was punting
equal to or better than Gilliland of
Itasca and w«s gaining 10 to 15 yards
on every exchange of punts due to his
ability to return the ball nearer to
the line of scrimmage.
Webb and Gilliland starred for
Itasca, while to 'pick an individual
star for the Cubs would be a futile
effort. Every man was giving all he
had and making himself effective in
every play. That passing combination

them on offense, the Cub line was a
stone wall on defense and even more
than that they often Mblse through
and threw the opposing backs for
losses. Johnson and Waldrop were
backing up the line in a pleasing man-
ner and the assistance they were re-
ceiving from the remaining backs was
all that could be asked. How well they
were guarding against passes is
shown by the fact that of 12 passes
tried by Itasca one was intercepted,
8 knocked down and only 3 completed,
one of which was behind the line of
scrimmage and was thrown for a net
Iobs; this total yardage by the aerial
route being 14 yards. The Cubs, com-
pleted 3 out of 5 attempts for a total
of 64 yards.

WHAT IT REALLY MEANS
It has been said that Life Insur-
ance is a city of refuge, a ‘help in
time of trouble, a stronghold in time
of distress, food to the hungry, cloth-
ing to the naked, warmth to the shiv-
ering, education to the children, an
enemy to want, a builder of homes,
and a contract payable in cash when
mostly needed. This is a Southland
Policy. See J. M. Jenson, Clifton. ).c
