y VOL. LI. LEXINGTON, LAFAYETTE COUNTY, MISSOURI, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER, 11, 1921. NUMBER 43. r 1 SPLENDID MEETING IN THE COUNTRY Chamber of Commerce Met With Folks in Slusher Neighbor hood. On Monday evening, Novem ber 7th, sixty members of the Lexington Chamber of Com merce motored out to the Slush vr Bchool house, and met with the folks of that community. After the routine of the Fo rum had been disposed of, Mr. Frank B. Fulkerson, President of the County Farm Bureau, was introduced and struck the keynote for the successful co-l operation of everyone living in this section. He urged the val ue of organization and team work. He spoke on the folly of Bending thousands of dollars out of the county never, to return, and remarked that enough had t een sent out on worthless ; chemps to build every road in the . county, and have enough kit for a water-works to sup ply the county. County Farm Agent Caldwell ind Home Demonstration Agent Hiss Wold, were called to the platform, and each outlined ac tivities for'corrimunity improver ri.ent.. The suggestion that, a joint committee from " the. Farm Bu reau and the' Chamber of Com- mercejwork togetherfor the up building of Lafayette County, will -be .carried out. There are rrent possibilities to the work that such a grouo can initiate. and time alone will demonstrate be value of such avpten.- The refreshment "committee uf the Chamber of.-Commerce was on the job all the time. Kemper Reserves Won. The game Thursday between the Wentworth Reserves and the Kemper Reserves resulted in a one-sidded score in favor of the visitors 32 to 0. Kemper had the better team. They could forward pass and tackle, neith ther of which Wentworth could do to any extent. And that tells the story. Wentworth fought all the way, but lacked finesse when they had the ball. Some of . Wentworth's men showed great promise. Willet at center, was especially prominent. He was - in, every , play and caught the only two passes that Went worth completed. Several others on the team have the makins' of valuable players with more FARM BUREAU NEWS The Public School Column. I ' j Mr. George R.
