Large Audience.
Rev. G. M. Hammond, of Kentucky,
and Field Secretary Anti-Saloon Lea
gue of America, lectured Sunday
evening in the Cloverport Baptist
church before a crowded auditorium.
Altho a revival meeting is in pro
gress at the church, the evening ser
vice was given over to Rev, Ham
mond. The devotional service was led by
Rev, R. L. Shirley, and after that
Rev. Hammond was introduced by
Rev. J. R. Randolph, pastor of the
Methodist church.
In his excellent lecture, Rev. Ham
mond ' stated that many people as
sumed that with the adoption of the
Eighteenth Amendment the fight a
gainst the liquor traffic was over;
"When in fact," he said, "we are just
waking up to the realization that
the fight has only begun."
He mentioned that the liquor peo
ple, who, with unlimited financial re
sources, made a stupendous effort to
elect a wet majority in both houses
in' the last election. The wets are
apposing the Volstead Law which
provides that beverages shall not con
tain more than one half of one per
cent alcohol.
Rev. Hammond appealed to his
hearers to elect for their county and
State officers men who were prohib
itionists and who would maintain the
dry laws of the .State and county.
In his last appeal, Rev. Hammond
gave a bit of his personal history.
He spoke of being the son of a
saloon keeper, and of the disasters
that liquor had brought into his home.
Rev. Hammond has been fighting
the liquor traffic for nearly thirty
years. Part of this time he was a reg
ular pastor and evangelictic. He is
now speaking altogether for the Anti
Saloon League of America as one of
its National lecturers. He took a pub
lic collection for the Anti-Saloon Lea
gue work in Kentucky.

torious Again Saturday. Play
Tell City Next.
When the C. H. S. Wildcats and
Kittens went to Irviiigton, last Sat
urday their claws were distended and
bristles raised. From start to finish
the battle was fierce and cleanly
foungh, but the local teams at last
emerged, bleeding and victorious, the
Wildcats on the long end of a 19-16
! score, and the Tabbies with a score
of 8-. in their favor. Owing to the
closeness of the games, they were the
most interesting of any played this
season by Cloverport teams.
A feature of the boys game was the
brilliant playing of "Tige' Atkins, of
the Irvington quintet. This wiry little
athlete struck more terror to the
hearts of the Cats than the whole
population of Irvington. Before the
game some of the local boys had an
idea that thev would simnlv sit down

but when anyone tried to do it, he
very politely refused to stand still
for the operation.
Next Saturday, Cats and Kittens
will invade the camp of the Tell City
teams, if weathet permits. An interest
