SUBSCRIPTION $2.00 PER YEAR OF&';TE?-TE3-' ITT) There's Nothing T7 fY r The farmers of this ed to the very best that world have to offer F0F III! The best in automobiles, trucks, farm im plements and other conveniences in keeping with his growth and community importance Therefore, we believe that he is' entitled to the very best service that a strong, friendly, dependable Banking House can render. We maintain such an institution. May we offer you it's service? J HAYS, KANSAS Clara Smith Hamon, the vixen, On her affinex she sure put the fixen, She ruffled his hair it was not quite fair, - She shot him 'twixt pantry and kitchen. Here's Hoping" The tourney is over, the players are gone, . 'And basket ball is over this year. They shot many goals and had a good time, For the meet was run on the square We hope they go away happy, as they go on their way Let's "give the winners a cheer, And wish, them good luck as they journey through life, And come to our meet next year. WHY NOT? If Hays expects to become some thing more than a whistling. post on the Union Pacific, something greater than "just a school town;" or ever expects to achieve greatness through the efforts of its Chamber of Com merce, it should employ a secretary who has had large experience, brains and 'initiative. Hays has passed the pink tea stage. The growth of Hays in the last few years has been almost phenomenal. It was many weary years gaining headway, but as it has at last broken loose from the fetters of stagnation and is reaching out for better things, it should have a secre tary that is strictly on to the job. A. man of large experience can be found and with the backing of the Chamber of Commerce, the member ship of which comprises practically every business man in the city, Hays could be pushed rapidly to the front. You would, of course, expect to pay such a man a larger salary than the present secretary is receiving, but he would be worth the money. The Free Press is willing to pay its share of say from $3,000 to $3,500 per year for the right man. 1 a Banking System -that has helped Revolutionize the Business of Farming The operations of the Federal Reserve System are especially favorable to the farmer. His borrowings to cover cost of fertilizing, planting, harvesting, and carry ing his crop can be rediscounted by this bank with the Federal Reserve Bank and an abundant supply of credit at moderate rate thus assured. This bank realizes to the full the vital importance of the farmer's work and is genuinely desirous of extending' to the farmers of this community the benefits resulting from its membership in the Federal Reserve System. First National Bank Member Federal HAYS Good Farmers community are entitl- g the markets of the p A live Chamber of Commerce is an asset to any city and just as neces sary ta-the upbuilding and progress of a city as insurance is necessary as protection to the business men. Not only very business man in the city, but every citizen as well, should become a member and help push the car "of progress. Of course, we know that the Board of Directors, or Board of Control, in a measure, dictate the policy of the secretary, but the secretary should be something more than just a common "typist." The following comprise the Directors of the Hays Chamber of commerce: H. J. Tholen; H. W. Fellers; VicHolm; R.S Markwell; J. S. Bird, Editor Of the News; C. A. Harkness; H. L. Kent; C. G. Cochran; John O'Loughlin; C. M. Wann; H.W. Oshant; R. L. Ward.. The columns of the Free Press are open to anyone who wishes to discuss this matter or any criticism that any one has to offer upon the subject. We are offering the above only as a suggestion ,not knocking or trying to dictate. Respectfully submitted, A. L. Clark.
