I am hereby making my announce
ment as a candidate for the office
of County Superintendent of Edu

ing myself before the people, I real
ize that I am asking for the most
important office of the county, but
as I am thoroughly acquainted with

entire life here among her citizens
After qualifying I began ,to teach in
the rural schools of this county,
Since that time I have devoted my
time to teaching and preparing my
self for better school work. I have
had Bix successful years experience
as a teacher in the schools of this
county and was chosen last year by

If chosen to fill this important

time in trying to make it possible
to have a successful school within
reach of every boy and girl in- the

In selecting some one for this po

dKUUKHAVEN S NEW
LADY CITY CLERK
Will Quit “Saving Soles” and
“Half-Soling Pants” to Take
^ UP New Duties.
Mrs. Jyme Daughtry Nixon, who
won the position of City Clerk of
Brookhaven, last week is the first
woman in town and one of the first
in Mississippi to be elected to office.
The duties of the position are fa
miliar to Mrs. Nixon as she per
formed them for the alderman who
nominally acted as clerk, during the
twelve year period when her father,
the late Dr, J. B. Daughtry was
mayor of Brookhaven. Mrs. Nixon
also assisted her father Jn the in
surance business.
Mrs. Nixon was born and brought
up in Brookhaven, and was educated
at Whitworth College. Her parents
were among the most cultured and
prominent residents of this section,
and in their declining health and
fortunes were devotedly cared for by
Mrs. Nixon, herself widowed and by
her sister, Miss Daughtry. When
Dr. Daughtry’s six years of invalid
ism culminated in his death, Mrs.
Nixon was lefKto support her sister
whose health had failed, as well as
herself. The old family home on
South Jackson Street bad to be given
up.
Mrs. Nixon fdund work with sev
eral local firms, among them at a
shoe repairing establishment, where
with characteristic wit and optimism
she announced she was "saving soles"
and later at the Guess Dry Cleaning
establishment where, in charge of al
terations and repairs, she "half-soled
* MRS. JYME DAUGHTRY NIXON
panta.” ~
Mrs, Nixon, who as "Miss Jimmie
Daughtry” was Brookhaven’s pio
i neer woman bicyclist and cross sad
dle rider, has always been of the
“hail fellow well met” type, and had
no need to add to her cheery and
democratic ways any of~-the ingra
tiating affectations some candidates
assume.
Mrs. Nixon has witnessed all of
Brookhaven’s splendid development
and his confidence in its continu
ance. "But we need apartment
houses and homes,” says Mrs. Nixon.
"It is pitiful to see families hunting
homes. Often the houses they occu
py are bought by people who want
to live in them and it is almost im
possible to find other houses for rent.
I know people who want to move
here and can’t get houses. The wo
men should work to have more hous
es built. Brookhaven’s growth is
sure.”
Geo. K. Smith Injured by Train.
Brookhaveo friends note in today’s
dispatches the accident of yesterday
at Wesson in which Mr. Geo. K.
Smith was painfully injured. His
Ford truck was struck by a freight
train in the following described man
ner
Mr. Smith was approaching the
railroad from the east near the
Stringer crossing. He stopped for the
fast train going south to pass and
as soon as the flyer passed he drove
on the tracks and was struck by a
north bound freight train. He was
thrown upon the boiler of the engine
and carried fifty yards before the
train could be stopped. Upon exam
ination it is said his collar bone was
broken, but it is said he will recover.
The Ford truck was literally torn to
fragments and the cow catcher was
torn from the locomotive.
Big Springs Picnic.
On Friday evening, June 23rd at
7:30 a picnic will be held at Big
Springs. All candidates are invited
to speak. There will be music; and
suppers will be sold for benefit of
the church. Everybody is invited.
Epworth League Assembly.
There are 103 young people at
tending the Epworth Assembly and
enjoying the hospitality of Whit
worth College.
The social gathering in the sub
story of the Methodist church Mon
day evening was a charming intro
duction to the program. The local
workers had taken great pains to
decorate most beautifully the spa
cious hall and v refreshments were
served. . ~
Rev. G. H. Thompso'n, ex-Brookha
ven pastor, of McComb, was announc
ed to give the "Life of Bishop As
bury" today at noon and this even
ing there will be Community Sing
ing from 8 to 8:45.
Tomorrow at 8 p. m. Dr. Hounshell
will speak on "Playing Square With
Tomorrow.”
The Assembly will close Sunday
evening.
Somebody says “You can’t ever
tell what a woman is going to do.”
There is one thing she never says
much about—and that is, elections.
But she votes. And her voice will
be heard that way at every demand
of citizenship.

■ Washington, June 3. — Henry

given conditional^ approval by the
house military committee today and
ordered reported to the House with a
recommendation that it be accepted
‘ in the form agreed to in ocmmittee.
The action was taken by a vote of
j 12 to 9 in executive session, and was
» interpreted by ’committee men gen

r. preliminary skirmish to_what -prom
. ises to become a bitterly contested
battle between the proponents and
'opponents of the Ford offer in the
House.—Daily Dispatch.

the plant is essential to the develop

However, Ford’s representative re
