HERE A ACADEMY WINS STATE
Hlfill SCHOOL TRACK MEET
Mar filh, at Islington, Ky with
.11 Point
The boy of the Berea Academy
Track Team have certainly ilemm
strated what unity of spirit and co
operative team work, plus conscien
tious training can do for Micro At
nn athletic inert in which 2.V) con
tertant were represented from 16
loading high nchools of the State of
Ky.
The following nohow! were scheil
uled to have entered: Andorson, Be
roa Academy, Cynthinna, Frankfort,
Ft. Thomas. Lawrencehurg, Lexing
ton Hish. linuiftville, Madison, Madi
sonville. Mn.ie, lyiuisville Manual,
Model Morton-Elliott. Pineville and
(Jovinelon.
The Berea Academy team was com
posed of the following boy: Bax
ter Dailey, Filson Wood, Franci
Nash, Durell Easley, Hobart Wilson,
Shink Hugirfns nnd Iawrence Har
bison. It was a great event for Berea, a
it shows that the boys of Berea can
compete in any of the events of the
State.
This team took the large silver
cup, which must be won in three
consecutive years before it becomes
permanent property. A silver cup
was given to Baxter Dailey, who
broke the mile 'record, time 4 min
utes and 46 seconds; also the 1-2
mile, time 2 minutes 4 and 4-5 sec
onds. The mile relay, composed of
Wood, Easly, Daily and Nash, broke
the record, time 3 minutes 38 and
3-5 seconds. Shink Huggins and Ho
bart Wilson both broke the former
record for the discus, distance 104.3
and 106.1 feet.
The Berea team not only won the
two silver cups, but also six gold
medals, six silver medals and one
bronze.
The boys certainly have covered
themselves with glory and honor by
good sportsmanship, and Berea will
be better known and recognized thru
out the State.

The Ladies Hall division of the
Young Women's Christian Associa
tion was led by Miss Strain.
The topic, "The Courage of the
Commonplace," was illustrated with
a story ty the same name. The
story impressed the Idea that the
courage that it takes to do the com
monplace thing gives one courage to
do the big things which are sure to
come to all, or, as Miss Strain ex
plained it, "The courage of the com
monplace prepares us for the courage
of the crisis."
The meeting was enjoyed by all
and the thought left with us is on.;
that can be applied to any individual
life.
About sixty girls enjoyed this talk,
and we hope that each girl will pass
the idea on to others.
Consolidation of Railway Lines or Government
Ownership and Operation
By STN TOR ALBERT B. CUMMINS of Iwa.

1 pri'du t that if we do not mmvoil in carrying out
the prinriple of i-otwolidation, which ha alp adv gom
forward in a niti.-f u torv way, it will presently bein to appear to all the
pHiple of the country that there is just one other solution that i. jjovern
tiii'iit ownership and oixTitioti. Ami I want if to he un Vrtioil that I am
unaltcrahly oppoed to government ownership and operation of our rail
road. The American railroad problem will never lie finally solve.! utile all
the railnmd are consolidated into comparatively few system, say, fifteen
or twenty, and competitive in their character. I niiijht add that there is
no coiuixt ition in the railroad world, and ouht t) be none, exrjt the
competition of pood service.
When that is done we can fi rate so that the lowest schedule that
will sustain these properties ha a whole may he estaldisli 'd.
There are now pending before congress, and especially in the senate,
a preat many hill which have for their purpose the modification of the
transportation act of l'.V.'O in vital respect. The farm organization
and the farmer have my deepest sympathy because I know the hardships
through which they are passing demand the reval of what is known a. ;
Section 15-A.
This section provide that the interstate commerce commission shall
consider transportation from a national standpoint; that we shall no lon
pr attempt to regulate our common carrier by reference to the particular
condition of any specific carrier.
Some of the host people of the country impute to it all th? ill which
can flow from the niot virion legislation. Hut if I can prevent it, Seo '
tion 1")-A will not be repealed.

0 my love, she sings on the summer
eve,
And she sings her song to me,
And her song is sweet on the willow
seat
By the old magnolia tree.
The stars look down with a twink
ling light,
And the moon, comes up in the silent
night.
But my love's eyes shine soft and
bright
By the sweet magnolia tree.
O the mocking bird sings loud and
long,
And his song is wild and free,
His lady's breast is upon hex nest
In the old magnolia tree;
He whispers love to his pretty bride,
And he sings of love in the eventide,
While my love nestles at my side
By the sweet magnolia tree.
O my love, sh'e sits in my gum canoe,
Where the silent water flows,
And the night birds scream on the
silver stream
Where the sweet magnolia blows;
The night hawk answers the whip-
poorwill,
And the barn owl calls on the distant
hill,
But my love sits so calm and still
Where the sweet magnolia blows.
O I love my love in a little cot
On the bank of the Congaree,
And we laugh and play thru all the
day
By the old magnolia tree;
For we made a vow in the long ago
While the evening skies were all
aglow
That brought our heaven here below
By the sweet magnolia tree.
