MEDINA SENTINEL VOLUME THIRTY-SIX MEDINA, OHIO, FRIDAY, March 1$, 1920 Np. 30 RUBBER COMPANY SEEMS ASSURED HERE IN MEDINA Going Concern of Tine Setters to Join Medina Investors and Make Own Tires in a Medina Plant WILL MAKE TIKES HERE 'ERE SNOW FLIES AGAIN The auto tire company figuring with Medina merchants over the prop osition of locating in this city came to Medina Monday afternoon anil met with the committee of five Messrs. Longacre, Hoover, Codding, Hyde, Mr. Pelton being absent and discussed a tentative proposition from the auto tire manufacturers. A few other business men, not understanding that it was to he a gathering of the com mittee, were also present and took part in the 'deliberations. The proposition was received, look ed good to the committee, was en dorsed as a committee, and it was then determined to hold a meeting of those who had subscribed to the Eaton proposition in the evening. The call was sent out to these subscribers and at 7:30 such a gathering was held. Nearly all the subscribers total ling about 40 with an .aggregate sub scription of 38,000 were pitesent at the (evening meeting. The propo sition presented was about on this wise: The tire company has some 58,000 in the bank at present There are $3,000 in good bills receivable, about $3,000 In stock, tire molds, patterns, patents, etc. There is a business of . about 1,000 Tires a month worked up and going with no debts whatever. There are 86 stockholders in the pres- i ent company, $18,000 preferred stock in force and $6,000 .common; fcvi- dends are due and the cash is in the treasury tto meet it. Uhe company is largely a selling organization and as such has made good. The Medina proposition iis to organ ize a company with $800000 capital and take ouer the .old company, rear- ganizing- Preferred stock; in the oM company will be tstken up with new stock, share for share. In the old company, the preferred bjflders re ceived half as much common as they purchased preferred. In the transfer it is planned to give them tfie same common as they receive preferred, bettering their condition in - the new as to holdings tat relinquishing some thing they know for something as yet ; an experiment. For this the did company tarns over All iis holdings cash an banik and bills receivable jus well as its more tangible assets. The president of the old company as ginen similar po sition in the new with -,an assurance of continued tenure in effice. The other officers mh hold as per the terms in fine bylaws. .. President to receive a salary .tff $5fltt0 ; and one per cent, on sales, .-a much less oast to the company than if usual-y paid. and the president promhtg m .ttat hisssys tern and organization is more com plete. Twenty thousand .cash; it to be paid j he president, in. liquidation of obligations of the old company not. as yet taken, up In the otrgamz&tion rd conduct of the business. The' five old directors to holdxrer for a yens- and the four new one to cone from .Medina -irwestort. The office of the (Company is to be removed to Medina and the wlioje oumness, guractica iiy, to be conducted at this home office. The board of directory in th1 sur render of their present stock will re ceive $25,000 of the new stock, came ration as the analer stockholders .will receive. The board of di motors are not to receive any bonus and the .com pany is to receive just what has ibeen outlined above. The Medina ,com- ay, after absorbing the old, will s oyer everything good Will, pa tentfy rights, .equipment, satesfowe, furniture, stock on hand, bills receiv able no bills payable eash in bank and the Whole working force and sell ing force of the company. In other words Medina is to get a going con cern, with bright prospects for un precedented expansion and with a fens iness meeting all expenses and ac cumulating moneys for dividend pur-, poses, according to the committee. By the time that the Medina plant cer. be built and set to manufacturing per fect tires the business, .should, easily, be double and perhaps treble what it Is now. The past few months' operation of the present company has earned it dividends equivalent to 14 per cent on its stock in force, it is stated. In the great expansion contemplated this condition will naturally be disturbed. A vote pf those present was taken on the proposition of raising the nec essary money in Medina and taking over the old company and going ahead. This was carried unanimous ly; those voting were from among those who have subscribed on the Eaton proposition. A tentative agreement was drawn up and the committee of five were authorized to enter into an agreement with the old company to make the combination. The old company will now take the necessary steps to trans fer its business and holdings which will likely take 30 days for its con summation. There is but one chance in a hundred that anything will arise to stop the transfer, and the officers of the old company and Medina's com mittee of five are going ahead on the supposition tha the whole matter is settled. Every Medinaite is asked to get behind the proposition and boost and it is promised that before snow flies again we may see a rubber plant m iuii operation m tnis city. DROPS DEAD IN YAKD?

With good weather there should be quite an mcreace in development work in ev ery county iu .the Ohio field, and test work will be 'done .in counties on the iuter edges, in hopes of bringing them into the . oil and gas area. Pres ent indications are that some very important work will be done to the south and close .up to the Ohio River, as that teritory has been overloked for years. Jiut with exceptionally hj(frh prices .prevailing for crude oil the average .person will make an at tempt to find the fluid. The scarcity of natural gas will bring about a further t-ttempt -to increase the area of the field, i in hopes of. getting, a mew field to develop for the next winter's supply. During JCebruaiy 61 wells were completed in the Centra Ohio field, of which 37 were oil wells, witha new production tof 1,442 barrels, 12 were dry holes and . 12 were gas wells. .When con pared with the January ifigures, this is .a decrease of .12 in sctimpleted wells, 304 barrels in new production, six less i dry holes .and seven lesspgas wells, while, there was tnew work .under way there is a very .healthy increase.

WIFE PULLS THE PLUG LT RUNS INTO SEWER Cme Medina home is sure dry at this time, and it was a bountiful oasis but a short time ago. The "man of the house" had provided for a large thirst, buying liberally in jugs and in bottles of the best vintage. As the story goes, he had liquors valued at about (3090. Prior to the great drouth last July he bad been picking ;up bargains, making a big haul when Valley Uty went dry. At first he had no fears and bought right and left and took few nrecautions about storing it. But when officers of the law began to pry into the privacies of homes, even go ing so far as to turn a man's bed room mside out in an effort to locate contraband liquors, or liquors in suf ficient quantities to make them look like contraband, this "gleaner" took fright and began to search out some method by which he might save his liquors, or failing to do this to at least keep iut of the clutches of the law. Finally "Saint Bacchus'" hit on this scheme to make himself safe: He turned the contents of jugs and bot tles in his bath tub, figuring if worse come to worse he could pull out the plug, throw it out the window, and before any "minion of the law" could secure a plug and stop the leak the tub would be empty -and the evidence all in the sewer. Then Saint Bacchus slept well and dreamed rosy hued vis ions. But Saint Bacchus figured without considering his wife. Whether she had a horror of the minions of the law, wished to remove temptation from before her husband, or just did the deed for deviltry deponent saith not; but 'She did pull the plug out from the bath tub and let all that good liquor go clown to the fishes in the creek, Hubby's $3000 worth of liquors are gone, and he's a more sober if not wiser husband. Some years ago a rich young heir in New York turned $80) worth of ciuuupiugu imo nis tod ana took a bath in it on a banter; but our Medina Bacchus did not even have this pleas ant sensation in the case of his $8 a quart wsiskey. BUILD A TABERNACLE TO HOUSE MEETINGS The members of the Church of Christ began the erection of a Taber naele Wednesday, to house the meet ings of the evangelists at work in Medina at this time. It was the pur pose of the church people to build the Tabernacle in a day, and to that end volunteers were asked for a days work. About 20 showed up for the effort, but the task was too large for so few hands and all day Thursday was needed to complete the 'task. The Tabernacle is a rough building SfelOO feet, will be heated with gas stoves, seated with chairs and benches, and is large enough to house a big congregation. It is built to the rear of the churcch, is easy of access, and every one will be made welcome to the meetings. The evangelist and his helpers ar rived in Medina Wednesday and the first meeting of the series was held Wednesday evening, in the church. There was a fair attendance and the meetings started off under favorable conditions. Rev. Goodale has so far recovered from his experience with the Flu to be able to attend the firs.; meeting and take active part. g . Mr. Ashley Pelton who underwent an operation in an Akron hospital i short time ago, was so far recovered s to be able to come home Saturday. While his condition is greatly impro ved he is not yet able to return to his school duties and is confined tn n, MIV house. CONGRESSMAN DAVEY ' SCORES NEWS TRUST ON FLOOR OF HOUSE A Colloquy in House Which Gives An Insight As To How Representatives Try to Pass Legislation. PAPERS THAT CRITICIZE GIVEN SHORT RATION Readers of the Sentinel, many of them, realize that there are peculiar incidents happening inCongress ev ery week. Many of them, perhaps, do not understand how legislation is accomplished. Congressman Davey, of this district, was on the floor the other day in an effort to secure some help for the newspapers by gaining better prices from the trust on news print. What happened in the collo quy may interest our readers; it will will give them an idea of how things are approached by our sedate Repre sentatives: Mr. Davey Mr. Speaker and gen tlemen of the House, it seems to me that in this matter we face a condi tion and not a theory. There are cer tain outstanding facets in this news paper situation. One is that the price of print paper varies greatly. There are some newspapers that can buy their print paper for 4c a pound, others for 5c, others for 5c, and the pricei ranges up. Here are two or three other facts. A publisher is told that he cannot have his full needs on a contract ba sis. His contract desires are cut down, but he is informed very polite ly that perhaps by going to a certain broker he can get the paper he wants. Going to this broker he is advised that he can have a certain amount of paper at a greatly in creased price, nine, ten, or eleven cents. The fact stares us in the lace that there is injustice in the situation. I do not know whether this resolution will get the results we want, but it seems to me that something ought to be done by this House to arrive at the facte and equip us with the infor mation on which to act , Very evidently the screws are put on certain publishers. For instance, if a newspaper complains about the treatment it receives, and attacks the socalled news print trust, then that newspaper finds it almost impos sible to buy its supplies. As an evi dence of that, I will merely refer to the situation of the president of tho Newspaper Publishers Assn who doe3 business in Birmingham, Ala. I do not know the gentleman. I simply have heard the facts in the case in a general way. I have understood that that man has been penalized and punished as far as possible because he attacked the so-ccalled trust. The facts in the case are clear that the prices vary. Papers of the same size pay different prices. Very evidently there has been a great increase in the demand, and we have nothing to blame for that except our enormous prosperity. It appears on the sur face that the news print manufactur ers have taken the situation. I understand there is a shortage of about 10 per cent per haps and prices have been bossted way beyond reason, way beyond the normal increase in the cost of the production. It seems to tw , times now demand that something be done by this House. We cannot gain a thing, we cannot justify ourselves lor our failure by simply saying that some one else ought to get busy. yieUi? Malden-Wi11 the gentleman Mr. Davey I will. Mr. Madden Does the gentleman contend that this resolution will do any good? Mr. Davey I have just said that I am not sure whether this is the meth- anything may I suggest to the gen tleman from Illinois that he propose a suitable subtitute? yield? DowweI1-Wi11 the gentleman Mr. Davey I will. Mr Dowell-In addition to the pas age of this resolution, does not the gentleman bel eve that S re!oI?tT directi"g the Depart, ment of Justice to proceed against the newspaper trust that he has re rerred to as controlling tho per output, would be a proper thing' Mr. Davey-I understand the Belt of Justice is moving JPrfWz111 not a "Na tion of that character stimulate fhe movement of the Dept of Justice? Mr. Davey I doubt it May I m- gest to the gentleman that hero :- this city of Washington the best lit- tie game that I know of is buck was- ing, seeking to place the respond buity on some one else.
