QT XAVIER P. H. S. FOOTBALL
More interest is being shown in
Paris and Bourbon county in the St.
Xavier game than has ever been
shown in any football game ever
played in this city. It seems now
that the largest crowd will attend
this game that we have ever had.
Many changes have been made in
the Paris Hi line in the last two
weeks, which improved the fighting
spirit of the team a hundred per
cent. Every day during the past
week darkness has driven the forty
or more players from the field and
Coach Ward expects to put into the
field Saturday the most formidable
football machine that has ever rep
resented the Paris High School.
Ward has his whole attention on
the St. Xauvier game and will not
discuss any other game until this is
over. Paris High schedule is very
hard from now until Thanksgiving,
and football followers in this sec
tion are expecting to see some of
tlie best football ever played here.
Every arrangement possible is be
ing made to take care of the crowd
The probable line-up of the two
teams will be as follows:
ST. XAVIER Chawk L. E.;
Schook L. T.; Wagner L. G.; Lu
ber C; Stenerie R. T.; Hess
(Capt.) R. E.; Richardson R.
H.; Vaughn L. H.; Allgeier R.

Nash, of Georgetown, and Arn
sparger, of Centre College, will have
charge of the game.
The time has been moved from
3:00 to 2:15, to allow the Louis
ville players to return Saturday
The Junior class will donate a
motor truck in green and gold for
St Xavier players. The Senior
class is preparing a similar truck
with the black and orange for the
High School. A parade of the prin
cipal streets of Paris will be held
immediately befor.e the game.

LAST SHOOT -OF SEASON
.Through E. G. Kingsbury, Secre
tary, the Winchester Chamber of
Commerce has extended an invita
tion to the people of Paris to attend
a monster Hallowe'en celebration to
be given in that city on Tuesday
night, October 31. The invitation
was extended in the form of a per
sonal letter to Mayor E. B. January,
asking the people of Paris to "come
over and be neighborly."
Sorry we can't come, as our own
Commercial Club and the Commu
uity Service are planning for a big
celebration to be held on the streets
of Paris on the same night. Local
pride compels us to say that nothing
Winchester can offer in the way of a
celebration could induce us to desertH
our old home town on that night.
In past years Paris had the reputa
tion of having greaters Hallowe'en
celebrations in Central Kentucky,
and we are sure from advance infor
mation we have had, that the one
being planned for this year will be
in all respects fully equal to those
of the past. Our regards, Winches
ter! Come over and see us!

Reports from various sections of
Central Kentucky indicate that the
diphtheria epidemic is subsiding.
Only a few cases have. been reported
in the last ten days. Dust result
ing from the longest drouth in many
years, is partly blamed for the epi
demic of bad colds, everywhere. ..
Although there is but one contest
the coming election Democrats
must go to the polls on November 7,
and keep the majority in Bourbon
county up to the standard. Only
through failure of Democrats to go
to the polls can their candidates be
defeated. Over confidence is a seri
ous and dangerous thing.
