Time and Hirain the Leeino team held the col legians for downs, and the whole ! team proved a power of strength j on defense. Due to lack of practice,; their interference was ragged at times, but on a number of occasions they were able to puncture their opponents' line for substantial gains. ' It was unfortunate that such a , small crowd turned out to witness such an excellent exhibition of the fall sport. Stetson by "Pug" Allen, a former Georgia Tech half back, used the famous Haisemanj shift, and while slightly disconcerting to the locals in the first quarter, they quickly solved it, and from that time on Stetson, was at no time within the of Palatka's goal. The excellent team work of the locals was due entirely to the gen eralship of Louis Tenney, former University of Florida star half back, and captain. The tackling of Merri am, at left tackle, Pat Anderson at left end, Fisher and Holden at right end was especially commendable, while Dowda, and Bogue, right and left guards respectively, repeatedly tnrp holes in the Stetson line, for the backs to follow on through. Mal- lory Sanford, at center, ualying his first game of football, proved to be a veritable find. Shearouse at quar ter, made several splendid end runs, that were fully equalled by the line plunging proclivities of Browning and Tenney. Emmet Greene, former Seventh Division star end in the army of occupation, over in the land where Kaiser Bill lost his job, per formed at full back, and demonstrat ed "that he can play not only a star game at end, but an equally star game at full back.

The game end ed with the score 7 to 7.

WATSON SPREADS HIS ATTACK TO HEAD OF ARMIES (Continued From Page 1) Georgia senator that a former service man, now living in Washington, had given him a statement as to the hanging of four negro soldiers "on one gallows at one time, each clad in the uniform that General Persh ing wears." The same soldier had informed him, he said, that these men were hanged without court martial. Another soldier had informed him, Mr. Watson said, that the body of "a negro convict, the black cap still over his face," had been exhumed and Sent to the home of a white woman in Rochester, N. Y., whose son had been killed in action." "Just such a case happened in my home county in Georgia," the senator added.

Knight, Agent, Belt Auto Insurance Co., Dear Sir: I want to thank you and your company, the Belt Auto Insurance Company, for your promptness in adjusting my claim for collision with H. A. Osgood, amounting to more than $400 on the two cars. I appreciate the promptness with which you handled this matter. It has been a good many years since I carried Auto Insurance for the reason that the rates have been almost prohibitive. Besides I have never had any but minor accidents and felt that, with careful driving. I would be ahead by carrying my own insurance, but when you showed me the low rates your company jwas offering, I bit and am glad I did, as this total claim would very likely have fallen on me. I am going to stay "BIT." Again thanking you for your attention, I am, Very truly, ED. M.

Curtis, according to Daigle, who says he attended the court martial as an interpreter, was found guilty of attacking a seven-year-old French girl. He was condemned to death, Daigle said, but later the sentence was com muted because of the fact that the French law is opposed to capital punishment for such crimes.
