PASIS COMMERCIAL CLUB NOTES
At a joint meeting, Tuesday
night, of the tCity Council, the
Bourbon County Bar Association,
the Board of Education and the
Commercial Club, after the special
business of the meeting had been
dispatched, a round-table discussion
was entered into afcout the desira
bility and necessity of an Automo
bile Club for Bourbon county.
Quite an interest was evidenced
by those present in the discussion,
and many reasons for the need of
such a club in Bourbon county were
advanced. . -
Most localities, with the .number
of pleasure cars per capita that
Bourbon boasts of, have an automo
bile club. Civic pride demands it,
and, in addition to touring infor
mation, funds deriyed from member
ship fees, are used to mark the
county roads, to place directors
along the National, State and Inter
State Highways. Tourists camp
sites are established and maintained
and pictures and literature of these
conveniences, as well as other points
of interest to the motoring public,
are made up in booklet form and
sent to touring centers, such as
Nashville, Knoxville and Chatta
nooga, Tennessee, Cincinnati and
Louisville for distribution to north
and south bound motor tourists.
Good roads are always a part of
the program of an Automobile Club.
Public sentiment is created for good
highways, elimination of hazards
and the beautifying of the roads.
Usually, this program is not con
fined to a home county, but is ex
tended to adjoining counties, so that
.good roads, through the -activities
of Motor Clubs, develop into State
wide and Inter-State interests.
Probably no other organization in
Bourbon county could have the influ
ence necessary to route the Dixie
Highway through Paris as could an
automobile club. Nothing can
equal a motorist as an advertising
medium for a community. Certain
ly the motorists of Bourbon county
desire to show as much pride as
other communities in having an or
ganization of their own to offer the
particular service which they jieed
and support their own individual
interests as well as the growth of
-the community as a whole.

Dr. M. H. Dailey, president of the

dressed the Council on the matter of
making a public playground of the

erty, the city ordered a fence built
around it until the matter of own
ership could be ascertained.
At a previous meeting City At
torney Chas. A. McMillan had been
instructed to draw up an ordinance
providing for a vote upon the ques
tion of a $50,000 bond issue for the
purpose of building an additional

CITY SEARCHES FOR CHILD '
The five-year-old son of Mr. and
Mrs. T. T. Marshall, of Paris, started
something the other night when his
mother -sent him to the bathroom
to wash his pedal extremities before
retiring for the night.
The young man thought such a
procedure entirely unnecessary, and
crawled in between the mattresses
of his bed, where he promptly fell
into a child's dreamland. Missing
him Mrs. Marshall instituted a search
which "proved barren of results.
Thinking her child had been kidnap
per or lost, she aroused the -neigh
bors and a city-wide search was be
gun. Returning to the house where
neighbors were gathered, the search

unusual appearance of the mattress
es, and an investigation disclosed
the youngster snugly curled up and
comfortably sleeping. ,The little fel

the joyful mother could not under
stand why he had been the cause of
so much anxiety and searching.
