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.

The Fair catalogue issued a few
days ago is quite a creditable publica.
. tion and shows very graphically what
the Fair management hope for. 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

may be realized.

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

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

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 Oxford foot ball toam comes
to Grenada today and has as much
-; ri ght to htink she will beat us as
Grenada has in thinking differently,
Oxford has a good team and always
was up to a high standard. The home
team has practiced faithfully after
having won its first game. The locals
are not over confident, an idea which
has lost many games, but they will
have to be supported by Grenada.!
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

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

THE A. & M. TROUBLE
Discussing the financial trouble at
the A. & M. College, in the light of de
velopments during the past few days,
the Vicksburg Herald says:
"That Governor Russell has incur
red President Smith's challenge of his
, . , , ,
S?°d intent, honest motive, and vera
nt * frange- Of aU Mtssis
sippi s scab lot of recent governors
except perhaps, Bilbo, it has been the
fortune of Lee Russell to most invite
distrust. He is now probably experi
encing the distrust he has excited in
his poll of the members of the legisla
ture for authority to borrow money
to supply the A. & M. College as
shown by Accountant Cleaver,
Herald contended upon the statement *
of the A. & M. College, trouble that
it was within the sole jurisdiction of
the legislature to remedy. Since
President Smith's contradiction of the
accuracy of Governor Russell's fig
ures and the correctness of his de
ductions it would be a positive un
propriety and wrot.g for the mem
bers of the legislature to delegate the
power of borrowing ai.d expending
money there under."
