The Abilene eleven was scheduled to go to En-' terprlse Friday of this week but made the substitution when Chap man cancelled the Thanksgiving game. Disciplinary troubles have caused Chapman to give np the sport. Enterprise shares In the gate receipts here Thanksgiving. A game may be arranged for this Friday. HOPE FARMERS HOLD THEIR ANNUAL INSTITUTE Dickinson county is making a fine start toward a better community spirit. In Solomon a few days ago was opened a $6500 recreation hall that is to be the gathering place of the community. It 'has athletic head quarters, a place for public gather ings, and a series of home enter tainments has been arranged dur ing, the wiater where tbir people can gef togetHer. The first or these" was a "get acquainted" social to which hundreds came to meet their neighbors and visit during the ev ening. Knox Schoolhoose. . Out' in the country school districts is going on a somewhat similar change of public thinking in regard to the possibilities of social . devel opment. A few days ' ago a new school house was dedicated in the Knox district a few miles south of Abilene. Ordinarily that statement does not mean much but this was an exceptional incident. The old school house built back in the sev enties had been good enough for the fathers but it was not good enough for this generation. When the bonds were voted. not a ballot was cast against them. The build ing is the most modern and finish ed type of a rural school . house. It la so neat that one almost envies The annual farmers' institute is being held at Hope today. The Woodbine institute is soheduled-for tomorrow. At both of these meet intra C, C. Cunningham and Miss Adah Lewis of the agricultural col lege will be present and take part In interesting programs. CHICKEN SHED ON NORTH When the structure was planned the young men of the neighborhood had a theory that it should be something more than a school house. They wanted to make it useful in other ways. It is seven miles to town. "Why not have a work shop out here where we can repair our toW." one asked1- , So in one cor ner of the building isset aside a small room which is to be the dis trict farmers' own headquarters. It is to be fitted up with a complete set of carpenter's tools, iron work ing tools and everything that will be useful in repairing and even in construction. The pupils are to be taught manual trailing and will be able, to help their parents in many a way. Hold "Community Day." North of Chapman last week in what is known as the Wesley neigh borhood was held a "Community Day," the first in that section of the state. Some two hundred per sons spent the day partly in im proving the school house and the church, partly in improving the roads, partly in enjoying ' a real country - dinner and later in listen ing to addresses on how to make the community better. A speaker done elsewhere and how community ure can De urted out of the ordin ary rut to better usefulness. Plans for some sort of gatherings that will accomplish things for the neighborhood were made and the coming winter promises to be more interesting than previous ones, for young as well as old. Here are some of the topics that were suggested for discussion at a neighborhood im provement clnb: Boys' corn clubs,, farmers' institutes, how lo raise ten bushels more per acre, pure bred vs.' scrub cows, value of playground, the deadly house fly, milk and con tagious diseases, water and conta gious diseases, preventable diseases, women's club in the ' country, the federated church, the union church, tenant farmers conservation. When Secretary Coburn lamented the. other day that the rural popu lation of .Kansas is decreasing while the urban population Increases, he realized that some of the reasons for the change lie in the country conditions themselves. The estab lishing of better sentiment for act ual development and a larger com-; munity interest will be the factor that will arrest the eagerness' to move to town.

REPENTED PADDING EXPENSE ACCOUNTS In talking about repentance last night at the Christian church, Mr. Knowles told of a Christian preach er in a town in central Kansas who, at one time, was a traveling sales man. After his conversion he sent the house a check for $1000 to re pay them for amounts stolen by padded expense accounts. This was quoted as, an example of the results of true repentance.
