Attorney Laurent and L. W. Mc
Clellnnd, of Louisville, representing
tho Kentucky "Utilities Company,
appeared boforo tho city council at
tho regular meeting Tuesday night
and aeked that their franchise bo
a'mendod, granting an increase of BO
p(ir cent', in tho water rates hre.
Attorney Laurent presented flguces,
showing that tho ,revenuo received
from tho local plant is" not sufficient
to cover tho increaso in tho cost of
coal and labor alone. The city fathers
did not see fit to grant this request,
voting down the resolution 5 to 3.
Tho present franchise holds to 1932.
The majority of the council seem to
feel ihat 50 per cent, increase is an
exliorbitnnt raise in tho water rates.

Fiscal Court Askctl to Present Rea
sons, If Reasons There Be,
Why Bond Issue Should
" Not Be Authorized
From the beginning Tho Advocate
and all those who hnvo been in favor
of the bond issue, as .suggested by
tho Fiscal Court, have held to tho
position that if it could be shown
that such a policy was not for tho
best interests of Montgomery Coun
ty, then they would as good citizens
desire to join in opposing the pro
posed measure for the relief of Mont
gomery County's pressing road prob
lem. Tho Advocate has now given its
authority for asserting that tho loan
of $300,000 to tho State would make
possible arrangements for construct
ing the entire twenty-nine miles of
road from Clark to Bath, from Bour
bon to Mcnefee, as part of tho State
Primary Road System, that the Proj
ects on which they are located will
be completed under five years, at
which time the money will be repaid
by the State.
Not ono dollar of the bonds need
be issued until it is confirmed that
such an arrangement can be made. A
contract covering each separate loan
for tho two roads will amply guar
antee repayment of the money.
A number of leading citizens of tho
County have requested that the Fis
cal Court meet with them, and pre
sent reasons, if reasons there he,
why tho Bond Issue should not be
authorized, as suggested by the Fis
cal Court in its "Statement" of April
12. It has been requested that the
meeting be held not later than
Wednesday of nert week.

in Montgomery County, from the
Clark to tho Bath County line, and
from the Bourbon to the Menefee
County lino can bo constructed as a
permanent type highway for $25,000
a mile, and that tho Projects on
which these roads are located will

At which time tho repayment of

Inasmuch as it has been set forth
that separate contracts can be en

money to the County on the comple

The 1920 Alumni Banquet held at
Ringo's Hall Inst evening was the
most largely attended and one of
the most successful in the history of
tho association. The banquet rooms
were artistically decorated for the
occasion in tho colors green and
white, n committee from the History
Club having charge of this feature.
Mrs. Emilce Ilibler Reid, at tho pi
ano and Miss Christine Rnm'ey, violin
ist, assisted by Miss Florence Shir
ley, gave n lovely musical program
that was greatly enjoyed.
After the "eats", which were most
delicious and faultlessly served, a
business meeting was held, presided
over by Mrs. M. C. Ayres and officers
for the coming year were elected as
follows: President, Stewart C.
Sharp; vice president, Mrs. James
Nesbitt; secretary and treasurer,
Lewis A. Judy.
At the suggestion of Mrs. Ben R.
Turner a dramatic society will bo or
ganized in the association and Mrs.
Turner, Mrs. Joe Brown and Miss
Emma Cooper were named as a com
mittee on arrangements, the purpose
of this society being to put on one-act
plays at tho association meets, etc.
Delightful features of the evening
were a reading by Miss Emma Cooper
and a vocal solo by Miss Mattie
Judy Botts. Tho class of '18 had
charge of the entertainment and was
under the direction of the clnss
president, Miss Loretta Kerns. Two
short plnys were presented "Wild
Nell" by the class of '18, and "An
Eskimo Tragedy" by the class of '20.
A clever dialogue by Miss Margaret
Nesbit and Ben R. Turner, Jr., was
ono of the "hits" of the evening. Im
promptu speeches were mace by
Hon! C. D. Grabbs, Supt. Babb, Prof.
Cox, R. P. Winn, L. A. Judy, Smiley
Davis and the evening's entertain
ment was concluded by the reading
by Secretary Sharp of a letter from
former Superintendent Hopper as
Just a few lines to request that
vou convey to the members of the
Alumni Association heartiest greet
ings and best wishes ior a most suc
cessful and enjoyable meeting.
I am wondering which ono of the
"stuntists" will-be the "hit" of the
evening, who tho skirt dancer, who
tho tight-rope walker and what kind
of jokes Mc Chiles will pull off. No
doubt the members will bo delighted
with the presence of ex-president
Lewey Judy, who always does so
much to INSURE the success of a
gathering of that sort.
At the hour in which you are as
sembled for the annual feast, I shall
silently and alone drink to the
health, long life and prosperity ofthe
Mt. Sterling High School Alumni As
sociation. Having been with this organization
nt its Lirth and on through its an-
fnncy I shall continue to watch its
growth and activities with the deep
Yours very truly.
