Just a few of the old veterans
who brayed the rough times of
the 60's assembled in Starkville
Easter Sunday, according to a
custom that has been in vogue
among the old soldiers of Oktib
beha county for several years
past. Each year their number
will become fewer until within a
score or more years there will be
none left to continue this beau
"Hate" is the title of a pamph
let that has been sent out by the
H. D. Stephens committee as a
campaign document. The pam
phlet contains criticisms which
Yard iman's Weekly has made of
the Wilson administration. The
impression is sought to be made
that these criticisms were actu
ated by personal hatred of Mr.
Wilson as it was indulged in by
ex-Senator Vardaman. The
criticisms were given publicity
through the columns of Varda
man's Weekly, and it would
seem that Mr. Stephens is
strengthening t h e Vardaman
cause by giv ing them wider pub
licity. The suit against Gov. Ku3?ell filed
in the J;u k?on Division of the Fed
eral Court by Mis Birkhead for
alleged seduction wan thrown out
itf the court by Judge Edwin Holmes
for want of jurisdiction. Tuesday.
Gifv. Ilu-ell claimed citizenship at
Oxford in the Northern District of
the state. Many think the case
will be dropped, as it is alleged the
suit was instituted to injure the
governor politically and to inlluence
legislation that he opposed in the
interest of the trusts. The trusts
failed to get the legislation they de
sired. The governor has not been
injured politically, and now every
body devoutly hopes the scandal
ous proceedings art at an end, be
cause the people desire only equita
ble laws as between them and the
trusts and the fair name of their
strtte not to be smirched through
dark schemes of unscrupulous poli
Just to Remind You.
On "Mothers' Day" last year one
of our forgetful girls received a silent
reproof when the llorist delivered to
her mother a box of lovely ferns and
phints with the cards of two of the
girls best friends motherless girls,
by the way.
We who are so fortunate aa to have
mother with us should need no re
minder to send her an offering of
posies on Mothers' Day. She will
appreciate flowers, but don't you
stop with the things that money can
buy. 'Much more precious to her
mother's heart are those little ex
pressions of affection witch oannot
be measured in dollars and cents.
Slip your arms around her neck and
with her cheek to yours, tell her
that she is the dearest, sweetest,
best mother in all the world. You
may write that on her tombstone
later, but she would rather hear you
fay it now.
Don't forget that May 14th is
Mother's Day. I. C. Magazine.
When her son was sentenced to 20
3 ear3 imprisonment for robbery Mrs.
Hannah Donovan, of New York,
climbed to the top of a house and
jumped off. Her life work of rais
ing a son had failed. She did not
want to live any longer. It is al
ways the parent that paya the pen
alty for the son's crime. Mobile
And if the son had been brought
up in the fear and admonition of
the Lord, the penalty is a miscar
riage of justice.
A law was passed by the last
session of the legislature forbiding
supervisors to make contract with
or purchase supplies from any one
related to a member by blood or
marriage within the third degree
except if euch person secures the

Illinois Central System Clears Up Point
About. Railway Net Income.
The net railway operating income of the Class I railroads of the United States for 1921
was at the rate of 3 31 per cent upon their tentative valuation as established by the Interstate
Commerce Commission for rate making purposes. Many have construed this to mean that
the railroads realize a net income of 3.31 per cent available for dividends, enlargements and
improvements. This is far from being true. There is a great difference between "net rail
way operating income" and "net income."
Accounting methods are prescribed for the railroads by the Interstate Commerce Com
mission, and they are uniform for all railroads. After all operating expenses and taxes have
been provided for, and uncollectible accounts have been deducted, and after funds have been
set aside for the payment of rentals on equipment and joint facilities, the balance left over
from revenues is called "net railway operating income," which was for 1921 the 3 31 per cent
referred to. Most railroads have some income from sources other than railway operations,

is established, chief among these being interest on the bonds and the rental of leased lines.
After making deductions for these, it is estimated that there was practically nothing left of
either the "net railway operating income" of 3 31 per cent or the "gross income." In other
words, the railroads had no "net income" for 1921.
Some railroads fared better than others during 1921, just as some business men and
farmers fared better than others. Preferable location, foresighted management, superior
machinery with which to work these are elements which have their influence in the show
ing made by a railroad, as they have in eveo' other business enterprise.
The railroads cannot serve the public adequately unless they are able to enlarge and
improve their properties as the requirements of the country for transportation service develop.
In order for the railroads to grow, their securities must be attractive to investors, for the
funds they receive from the issuance of securities are used in improving their properties.
The Illinois Central S3stem, in common with Other railroads, is striving to render a
service of satisfaction. It is eager to continue to improve and enlarge its facilities, so that its
plant may be a little in advance of the needs of its patrons. An overloaded machine is never
efficient, and if the overloading continues for any length of time the machine must necessar
This statement is made in the interest of a better understanding of railway problems
We ask that our patrons view the railway problem in its true light; that they realize that
eyery obstacle placed in the path of railway progress rebounds against them, as much as
against the railroads themselves, and that the interests of the railroads and the interests of the
public are inseparable.
Constructive criticism and suggestions are invited.

Judge C. P. Long For
The name of Hon. C. P. Long is
announced iu this paper to succeed
himself as judge of the First Judi
cial District of Mississippi.
Judge Long was elected to suc
ceed Hon. Claude Clayton in 1918,
and has held the scales of justice
evenly balanced since that time. As
few cases appealed to the supreme
court have been reversed from Judge
Long's decisions a for any equal
period of time under other circuit
court judges in this district, and the
record shows that the laws have
been enforced during his adminis
tration with equal justice to all.
Judge Long is a Christian gentle
man and believes in dispatching the
court's business so as to economize
in expenses to the people. While
the per diem of jurors and other em
ployees of the courts have been ma
terially increased since he came into
office and the business of the courts
have been equally or more volum
inous, the record shows that the ex
pense of holding the courts has not
been correspondingly increased to
the people of the counties.
Judge Long states that it is a
democratic custom to endorse an
efficient oflicer with a second term,
and says that if his record as a fair,
impartial and economic judge is a
worthy record, he asks the people to
say so at the polls by giving him
Judge Long hopes to see most of
the voters of the district, both men
and women, before the primary, and
states that he will appreciate favor
able consideration of his candidacy
at their hands.

A Mueh Needed Addition to
Our School System.
The importance of athletics in the
school is now recognized by every
body, and every well organized,
large school b.89 a coach or coaches
for its pupils. The salaries for these
coaches are paid, of course, by the
school board. These people usually
receive better salaries than do the
other members of the teaching force.
AH this is as it should be, and no
one can offer a convincing argument
against the system. Athletic train
ing is necessary to the physical de
velopment and has its place in men
tal and moral development as well.
But there ia another phase of school
work and supervision that, in my
mind, outranks athletics and is des
tined tofireceive its due . considera
tion by all up-to-date school boards.
I refer to school nursing, or rather
realth supervision by a graduate
nurse who has had specific training
in this line of work. A capable
woman who understands the sacred
ness of her duties and relations to
anil "with her pupils will be of ines
timably more value than any other
member of the teaching force. Her
duties are advisory as well as super
visory, and it has been shown that
current sickness can be reduced 50
per cent or more by employing a
capable school nurse. But perhaps
the greatest good comes in the care
of and advice given to the girls who
are iust budding into womanhood.
Again she discovers defects in sight
and hearing in the younger children
in time to have them cared for he
fore it is too late. She also discov
ers the cause that may possibly
have incipient tuberculosis. This
discovery will -mean the difference
between life and death in many in
stances. Now for some practical applica
tions: The schools of Aberdeen and
Amory each needy, and should have
a nurse. While they do without
such service, they can not claim to
be first class and up-to-date. So I
am hoping that thw progressive men
and women composing the school
boards for these two, otherwise,
splendid schools will at once con
sider this matter. In addition , to
the work outlined above, I see a
possibility of getting medical in
spection lor all the schools in the
county. If tLe coiuity should be
divided into two inspection dis
tricts, the nuxsH from the Aberdeen
school could work one end. and the
Amory nurse; could work the other,
The microHCopic work for both
would be done in the county labor
atory, and I am sur the State Bu
reau of Child Welfare would furnish
a woman pbyacian to make the
physical exatoinations. Medical
inspection for all the schools in the
county and nurse supervision for
the two large schools would be a
wonderful step forward, and it all
can be bad if the school boards at
Aberdeen and Amory will add to
their force a school nurse and will
co-operate as suggested above.
Your County Health Officer would
be delighted to meet the boards
mentioned above and discuss the
matter in detail. He will also ren
der all possible assistance in work
ing the plan nut to a successful end.
