What a difference n sinple word

Al Gavin came upon a humorous
paragraph which constitutes the best
defense of the flapper to date. This
suuib said that the girls of today dis
play more understanding than their
mothers or grandmothers ever did.
The Rotarian Magazine, in a boost
for spelling reform, presents the word
""Ghoughphtheightteeau" as the word
"potato" spelled in English according
to the pronunciation of certain com
binations of letters found in other
English words. This is no argument
for simplified spelling, but rather a
demonstration or how extremely ver
satile the bloomin' language is.
If a man wants to get cured of the
simplified spelling bug, let him read a
letter from some enthusiast who puts
his own ideas on the subject into prac
tice. The supreme court has rendered a
decision saying that the North Platte
school board has ample authority to
permit school dances. Now there's
nothing in the way of Alliance pupils
enjoying the same privilege.
In North Platte, some patrons ob
jected and took the matter into court.
The judge said the rules adopted were
excellent safeguards, and the mere
fact that some taxpayers objected
didn't have anything to do with the

Wednesday, Fred Brown, the Omaha
bandit, was seen in seven different
counties in seven parts of the state.
That bird is getting more publicity
than the James boys, and there were
two of them.
Among the humorous incidents of
the week is the tale of the two house
holds which were aroused to anger
and strong language by some merry
makers who, late at night, tossed
lighted firecrackers under the win
dows where strong men slept.
The merry makers were routed eas
ily. One volley of language strong
enough to set fire to the roof was
enouirh to acconipli.-h it, because there
were two girls in the party of jokers.
But when the tall gink fired a couple

want to say to you that you want to

Sunday at the usual hours.
Notwithstanding the absence of
many people last Sunday on vacation
trips, the church was well filled ot
both morning and evening services.
The unique cradle roll service in the
niorning in which each class appeared
in their regalia, received many com
plimentary remarks, and the children's
day program in the evening was snid
to have been one of the best given in
the church for a long time.

With the attendance at 263 last Sun
day at Bible school, we have set a
mark that will not be easy to keep up
and it will require every effort upon
the part of all members to see that
this mark is not missed this coming
Sunday. The women are determined
to give the men an overwhelming tie
feat, but the men are not asleep on
the job. The men will meet under
the tree next to the parsonage for
their study. The topic this week is,
