Football Outlook Was Never
Brighter and Fine Team
Is Trying Out
High School js to be represented by
one of 'the best teams that ever wore
the Orange and Black.
There is a large Equad to select
Now that the baseball season is
about over, the minds of all the
athletic interested are turned to
ward football, and the question most
asked is "What kind of team is the
High School going to have?" Of
course one can never telj about a
team until it is seen in action, but
from the looks of the squad, and the
smaK number of men socalled "the
first team," the 1912 team of
High School should be about
best that ever wore the Orange
Not ma,ny years ago, if as many
as twenty were out for football, it
was considered marvelous, but now
with increased facilities and an in'
creased 'number of students, there
have been over forty on the football
field in uniform and there are three,
organized football-teams in the High
School, the first team and its substi
tutes; the second team, composed of
the most prominent candidates but
who on account of lack of weight or
experience are not yet ripe for the
High School team; and the third
team composed of the newest and
most inexperienced men. All of
these teams use practically the same
plays and signals, so any member
can be switched from one team to
another without any inconvenience.
High School has the advantage of
having one of the best coaches in the
business this year. Dan Blake, of
Vanderbilt fame, has charge of the
squad and from pre3ent prospects he
is going to develop a team that will
repeat last year's performance and
have the championship banner float
ing aloft at the end of the season.

New College Building Opens
Its Doors Today For
PROSPECTS ARE VERY FINE;
Bigger and Better Than Ever,
The Domitory Has Risen
From The Ashes.
All things are now ready up on
College Hill for the opening of the
new school year. The perseverance
of the leading spirits in the raising
of funds for erecting a new building
on the ground where three former
ones had gone up in smoke in about
25 years, commands the admiration
of all. And so with the corps of
teachers who were on duty last Feb
ruary, when everything was swept
away. So few of the faculty saw
best to make engagements elsewhere
that it may really be said that the
old faculty is now in its new home
with new enviromenta, as well as be
ing filled with new zeal and enthus
iasm for a new year. May Mc
Lean be greater than ever before is
the wish of all our people.
Orange and Black will line up some
thing like this1:
. Center, Cyrus Radford.
L. Guard, Tandy or C. Torian.
R. Guard, Walker.
L. Tackle, Lander. .
R. Tackle, McReynolds. .
L. End, Higgins or Hayes.
R. End, Weaks.
L. Half, Waller.
R. Half, Fuqua.
Full Back, H. Abbitt, Capt.
Several changes may be made be
fore the opening game, but at pres
ent the team is lining up as above.
Besides these men, there are a
numher who are but slightly inferior
to them. Twyman at fullback or in
the line is heavy and fast and should
give a good account of himself be
fore the season is over. M. Abbitt,
Cayce and Dabney are a trio of good
half backs, who, tho' light are show
ing up mighty well. Jesup at quar
ter back and Skerritt and Breathitt
at the ends will also bear watching.
Don't forget to register today.

The vote of the parents of children

The board of Trustees cannot, un
der its by-laws, make a permanent
change under 30 days. But the
board will stand by the vote counted
yesterday and its temporary action
in permitting the one day session
during the month of September will
hold goqd until final action is taken.
The action of the board is putting
the question before the parents of
the school children was a wise plan,
and no one can adversely criticise
them for so doing. "The one session
plan was in force up to the time
Prof. McCartney was made Superin
tendent some fifteen years ago.
The votes were opened and. count
ed by W.A. Long, J. T. Wall, Supt.
Davis A. Clark. Rev. C. H. Branch
and A. M. Wallis It was the gener
al opinion before the count began
that a large percentage of the par
ents of the schools favored the
change but probably no one believed
that there was a majority of 364.

The People Will Have A Year's
Rest And Then Some,
EVERYBODY IS INDIFFERENT
Four Different Propositions
Turned Down Promptly
The board of Tabernacle managers
have been wrestling with next seas-
. . , i
on's lyceum course i o r several
months and have finally concluded
not to put on a course of attractions
and let the people rest for a year.
Every possible effort wa9 made to
arouse interest sufficientlv enc uraK
ing to warrant them in entering in
to contracts for the usual series of
eight entertainments, but all efforts
were futile. Then a course of six
attractions was tried, but that was a
failure, too. Then a resolution was
adopted that efforts to raise by pop
ular subscription a sum sufficient to
arrange for half a dozen attractions
and throw wide open the doors of
the tabernacle and let everybody go
that wanted to. This was thought
to be a solution of the problem that
would meet with the approval of
everybody, and so sanguine were
the members of the board that the
people would be glad to give the
poor a chance for entertainment
'that every member of the board
headed the list with their names,
the amount subscribed being 50.00.
But this, like other propositions, fell
to the ground. Then another at
tempt was made on another plan,
but that fell fiat.
After mature consideration and
using every means to get the people
interested in a course of Tabernacle
entertainments, and failing so sig
nally, the board has abandoned all
idea of putting on a course for the
approaching season. However, any
proposition for others to come to
the rescue will be promptly consider
ed and every assistance given that
will terd to secure a lyceum course

Mr. Gabe L Campbell received a
supply of Bull Moose campaign but

tnem are seen about town.

Sheriff Lindsay Telephones For
Assistance To Make
RESULT OF DRUNKEN ROW.
Sheriff Johnson and Deputy
Left In Hurry At
About 1:30 p. m. yesterday Sheriff
Johnson was called up by phone to
start at once toward Allegree with a
deputy to arrest Ed Morris who had
shot Bob Kirkman, just over the
Todd county line. The call was
made by Lucian Lindsay, sheriff of
Todd county . He had a warrant for
the arrest or Morris, but he seemed
pretty sure that Morris was trying
to get over the line into Christian
county before the warrant could be
executed. Sheriff Johnson secured
two good horses and he and Deputy
Herbert Johnson left just after the
call was made from Sheriff Lindsay.
The full particulars could not, of
course, be learned, but it seems that
Ed Morris and probably his brother,
Bob Morris, who is mixed up in the,
trouble, as we learn, were indulging
quite freely in booze and raised a
row with Kirkman. So far as knowa
the shot is not liable to prove fatal.
The two Morrises are believed here
to be sons of the late George Morris,,
of the Pilot Rock vicinity.
