LATTER DAY SAINTS
--Elder E. A. Davis of Independence, Mo., who has been holding a
series of services at the Latter Day Saints church, gave several
very interesting discourses. After hearing his sermon you would be
convinced that it is worth while to be a real true Christian. You
would also feel that you knew there is a God who is unchangeable and
kind and watches over those who obey His laws. To hear Bro. Davis is
to know he is an able defender of all truth and right. He has
started a series of cottage services at the home of Bro. Chas.
McKusker 166 Ave. N. to last each evening this week.
He is assisted by Elder L. Houghton of Madison, Wis., who is
a speaker you'd love to hear. Come out.
All are Welcome.

had the shade over the former in four two-minute rounds of read out
Smokey Hodges and Turkey B. Parker then went four fast and furious
rounds to a draw. Both were from Oelwein.

rounds, with the points favoring the Oelwein man.was
Red Fanta of Oelwein and Ralph Courghan of Waterloo, also put on
four good rounds, with the odds favoring the Waterloo man.

If decisions were rendered Cally Franks of Cedar Rapids
would probably have been handed the contest with Hamilton Woods of
The big event came when Glen Lage of Marshalltown and Jack
Lamb of Muscatine started out at a merry clipp on an eight round go.
During the fifth round Lamb went down and it was found his ear was
so badly lacerated that before the referee could give the count his
seconds threw the towel in the ring. Several stitches were taken in
the ear. Lage is touted as the welter weight champion of Iowa, and
his work last night indicated that it would require a nightly good
man to wrest the title from him.
This made 39 rounds of boxing in the tournament and three more
would have been added had the last bout gone the limit.

team for Jefferson township for seven months. Also bids will be
