First, the meeting was opened by Professor Vinlng by a talk on the races Saturday, and also the prelimi nary movement for baseball teams was made. The plan of Professor "Vining is to have three teams, em blematic of the Boys Vocational Club, namely, the Beavers, Vampires, and Coyotes. Three captains were wanted, but Kenneth Lilly and Proc Klum were about the only ones in discussion and were loudly clamored for by tho boys. The matter was dropped until next meeting. The dollar prize 2qt the best Boys' Club monogram was awarded to Berle Eaton. H. G. Butterfield, city engineer, cave a verv interesting talk to the boys on the different phases of en gineerlng work. He impressed them with the fact that if they took up the work they must expect to study and work to accomplish a success. The meaning of electricity was ex plained, and of obtaining it. The Htudies necessary for the course were made clear, and the early training in apprentice work, which he stated was essential. "Be a good one when you try," was his watchword. Mr. Malone, manager of the Siski you Light and Power Company, fol lowed with a talk that impressed and inspired the boys. He started in to show them what made the generator "gent" and the motor "mot," and he certainly carried out his idea.

It Biegel Won Marathon Race Burdic Made Fastest Time Saturday's race was one of the most exciting and lively events pulled nff in Ashland for some time. A large crowd was in attendance, the street by the Elks building being lined with people and cars. - The Senior lineup consisted of Burdic, Biegel, Swigart, Young, Jones and others who came late and did. not give their names. The Junior lineup included Leith Abbott, Lynn Slack, Brower. Martin and others who failed to enter their names. Colts lineup: Domino Provost, Merrill Butterfield, Clyde Gunter, James Merrill, Audrey Sanderson, Finley High, Amos Chap man, Willie Crest, Phil Wolcott, Jim mie Blair, Chester Phillips, Lester Phillips, Clifford Putnam, Horace Safgeant and Walter Jones. The races were started by Dr. Jar--vis at the crack of the pistol, with Mr. Malone as timekeeper, the Sen iors going first, Juniors second and Colts third, so the time was pretty well filled with incoming racers, and the crowd was kept continually at hieh tension and excitement. Burdic utarteH off In the lead with Biegel and Swigart close behind. Later, by the Normal. Biegel forged ahead and kept his lead till near the Free Meth- odist church, when Burdic started up a wonderful sprint, and Biegel dropped behind. Swlgrat dropped out near Sixth street, having run a great race up to that time, but was finally winded.

Patterson, who gained world-wide criticism for his attitude on the liquor issue, while governor of Tennessee, has changed front and is now one of the foremost advocates on the prohibition platform. He will be in Ashland Thursday in the inter est of a nation-wide prohibition. A fgw extracts from Mr. Patter son's speeches are typical: "Intoxicating liquor has no place in Christian civilization. It is an acquired habit, has no food value, and has been proved by many scientists to be a positive deterrent to the de velopment of the human race. The right to sell liquor is a permit and not a contract. Nowhere can it be the home. "Destroy that and we de stroy civilization," he said. His an alogy: I "On a beautiful day in spring I sat on my porch in my Tennessee home. The warm showers had fallen, and the grass was springing green. It was the mating season, and a pair of robins fluttered about my rose tree. TJie'y flew away and back again. They brought a string, a straw, a twig, and' the robins appeared su premely happy.

On account of this the judges disqualified him, as this seems a hard and fast racing rule. However, Bur dic came in seven seconds ahead of Biegel. his time being 32 minutes 37 seconds, while Biegel came in with a running time of 32 minutes 45 sec onds. Biegel made a plucky run and deserves a great deal of credit, and, on account of Burdic's not breaking the tape, would have received the cup. Because of the train cutting off several of the strong runners, the race will be run again next Saturday, if all parties are willing. Burdic has, according to old racers, a fine form to his racing, having a long, swing- Inz. easy stride which carries him without much effort. He stands a fine chance to go to the race meet in Eueene. later in the spring. The Junior cup was won by Lynn Slack, his time being 21 minutes 63 seconds, the course being 3.45 miles long. Brower came in second and Martin third. He is destined to become a fine runner with more practice. The Colts' race and cup was won by Fin lev Hlch. who made a nervy race from start to finish. Jimlme Blair came In second, with Chapman third. High's time was 10 minutes over a 1. 75-roile course. Next Saturday they will start at prompt 11 o'clock in order to avoid the train. The people of Ashland will see a great race. The little side bet ting among the bystanders was quite Tumorous, as Bordlc, 8wlgart and Young were the ones to command the bets.
