THE GRENADA SENTINEL
VOLUME LXVIII. GRENADA, MISSISSIPPI FRIDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1920. NUMBER 20 ROWLA ND-CAFFEY. Ok Tuesday afternoon at 3 o'clock, October 12, the lovely country home of Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Carpenter in the Providence community was the scene of a beautiful home wedding when Mr. Fonda C. Rowland, of Char leston, made Miss Edna Earl Caffey, a sister of Mrs. Carpenter and daugh ter of Mr. and Mrs. R. W. Caffey, his bride, Rev. John Tillery Lewis, pas tor of the Methodist church at Char leston, officiating. The home was very appropriately decorated with ferns an flowers mak. ing altogether a picture thoroughly in keeping with the happy function, the event which was to be culmination of Cupid's artful work. The bride never looked prettier than on this occasion; her radiant smile showed her happi and betokened that trust which she had implicitly given to the man with whom she had voluntarily linked her future. Quite a number of the friends of the bride and her family in the community were present to wit ness the ceremony which was most beautifully and impressively said by the minister. The bride is deservedly one of the most popular and one of the most attractive young ladies in her community. She has a bright mind and a most gracious and happy demeanor and never fails to win the esteem and the admiration of all who get to know her. For quite a while she was one of Grenada's many young ladies engaged m office work, a duty which she met intelligently and well, The groom was reared in or near Charleston bemg a son of Mr. and Mrs. Ben Rowland. He is at present one of the trusted employees of the Womble Furniture Co., of Charleston, and is one of the most substantial young men of Tallahatchie county, He won the confidence of all who got to know him in the war. He was one of the spiendid young men who enlisted with the Grenada company, There were present from Charles ton the groom's parents, Mrs. H. H. ness Womble and Messrs. Jam Rice and Harry Dogan. Mr. and Mrs C. E. Lockett, Miss Willie Smith and Mr. D. W. Dogan, all of Grenada were •among those present at the wedding. The Sentinel tenders congratula tion*- and best wishes. o Vwp -Lr* I'oinc- to lave n bi >- Fan- in ," e ,f 26th"to 29 1 Th" Central* Fair ar d Live Stock' Association includes the Connfies of Grenada Yalobusbe Tal counties Ot Grenada , Y^ODUSna, la 1 Monttrom*erv- P '^ola ' a-d ' Webster' Montgomery, Panola a. d Webster.

The Fair is to be held October 26-29. President H .B .Barbee, is unusually optimistic about what is to be had at the Fair and the crowds expected, He has been earnestly at work on the job for the past four montlx or mom and is one of those characters which allows nothing to dampen his ardor and enthusiasm when once he sets his hands to perform any undertak ing. Naturally the community wishes that his fondest hopes about the Fair o GRENADA FAIR. may be realized. o SHERIFF'S CAR OVERTURNS. t Sheriff Beck had a rather thrilling experience W ?d :esday when his Ford ear overturned on the dump north of towyi and he and the car w-mt rolling down about a fifteen feet embank ment. Mr. Beck states that when he saw what was happening he got the best hold he could in ths bottom cf the car so as to save himself from being caught under it, the result was that he came out unhurt but had to cut his way out through the top of the car. NO SOCIAL EQUALITY FOR HARD ING Fair Grounds, Oklahoma City, Okla. Oct. 9—The negro must be given the same rights as the white man, Warren G. Harding declared on the border land of the south tonight. o I There were dead silence in the mo mentary pause that followed. "I believe in equality before the law," he said. |*You cannot give one right to the white man and deny the right to the black man. But that does not mean that the white men and the black man must be forced to associate together in the ac ceptance of their rights," he added. Harding's statement was in reply to questions printed in a local Democra tic paper asking how Harding stood on the Jim Crow laws. I would not be fit to be president if 1 did not tell you the same thing I tell the people of the north," Hard same a a ing said. ADDITIONAL FACTS ABOUT THE BABIES' CONTEST. Attention is again called to the Better Babies Contest which will be held October 26-29 grounds. This is not a beauty show and children are not entered for prizes but for information and help. How ever, the Woman's Home Companion offers Better Babies Certificates and Diplomas and one bronze medal to babies scoring highest in the physical examination. The Department of Health is not interested so much in prizes to be offered but on the other hand is most interested in how much knowledge and information can be gained by the parents along the line 0 f proper care of their Therefore, by means of physical animations of these children, it is hoped that parents mav know more aboufr their children and that the . children may be given a better start j n life because of the knowledge gain-1 ed by their parents. | Dr. B. S. Guyton, Ear, Eye* Nose 1 and Throat specialist from Univer s ity of Mississippi, will assist in the examinations. Dr.' William F. Wild, former Director of Public Health in the State of Kansas will assist, also Dr. B. F. Gardner, who has been with the International Health Board and associated with public health work in the West Indies Islands wall as 9ist . Dr. C. M. Shipp, of the State Board of Health will conduct some c f the examinations and all dental and ^.-a] examinations will be m:».le bv Drs. Bailey, Dudley and Broadstreet, of this city. With this corps cf physi cians and their assistants., it will be posible to examine as many children ^ will be brought in, and it is hoped that parents from all parts of the county will bring their children from s i x months of age to five years in f or examination.

The team work is up to a higher standard of perfection than it was in the first game, although it was fairly good then. On this game the success of the rest of the season will depend. A good crowd or rooters were out to the first game to see what would happen, but a much larger crowd is expected at this game. xxx F 6 The Gloster Record calls attention I to the almost complete change in the books to be used in the common school which the State 'Text Book Commission made for this session, and properly criticises the comission for having having made the change at the time when everything is abnormally high. Public officials as a general thing have little regard for cost when the oxpense is to be borne by the public, and this seems especially true of the Text Books Commision. The books just adopted can be but little better then the old ones at best, and it is doubtful whether they are any im provement whatever. On the other hand, the added cost to the patrons of ' the- schools will reach far into thous- 1 ands of dollars. Some of the text 1 books used in schools are costing as high as four dollars each. While the books adopted by the commission may not roach this exorbitant figure, they will cost but little less.—Port Gibson Reveille. 1 Invitations arc out for- a danct to be given by Grenada Post No. 35, American Legion, at Hardy Hall next Monday night, October 18th.
