Our policy in marking our entire stock at fair, honest and legitimate profit—Prescriptions and Sundries—is an endeavor to give this community SERVICE.

Avenue Brookhaven, Miss. “Only the Best in Everything” ^--- ' ' ANTI-LITTER WORK. m Thousands of communities conduct clean up days or weeks, and accom f plish a great deal in promoting | neatness. But there is a constant I tendency for litter to collect. It r needs something more than a spas modic effort to keep it down. Streets are disfigured with scraps of paper and the refuse of the busi ness, district. Thoughtless people dump stuff on vacant land, and dis figure their own property with all kinds of junk. W. S. McGrane of the New York , Merchants Association, writing in the American City, urges communi ties to organize anti-litter work as a permanent and continuous move ment. He suggests that such an effort be managed by some representative of a community’s business association. High School pupils, Boy Scouts, or other young people could be enlisted to inspect the city regularly and re port accumulations of litter. Then the authorities should be notified to clean them up, or in many cases real estate owners could be induced to do it. Any oity can become a spotless town through such an effort. But it will take persistent effort J.O get Brookhaven clean and keep it in that enviable condition. Last Sunday the unsightly litter about some of our business • houses and beautiful public buildings was hu miliating to \hose citizens who feel a pride in the town and know that if the proprietors of every shop or store would make it their business to dispose properly of the litter it could be done. - * Trash doesn’t stay "put”. The wind takes other people’s trash and disposes it where it will—sometimes jammed against fences or walls of immaculate premises much to the dis & may of citizens who have cleaned up “ properly. / Let every householder and busi ness house take care of the premises * under their immediate supervision > and we’ll have a clean town.

There is no doubt at all that there is a lot of waste in public business. In Wednesday’s Leader we pub lished an article relative to the pro posed bonds for the erection, of a High School biulding. Of course no thinking man or woman is go ing to vote against the proposition, which he would be construed as do ing if he FAILED TO VOTE for the bonds. The Leader favors a High School building without any ifs and ands or buts. However, we cannot refrain from referring our already highly taxed citizens whose bonded indebt edness now amounts to about $280, 000 .(with ever-recurring interest) to the proposition as it appeared re cently over in Birmingham, where, as here, the schools was the object. Opponents of the proposed bond Issue in Alabama, claimed that they were anxious for improvement of education but insisted that the same results could be reached without ad ding to the interest burden. They suggested that the AMOUNT NE CESSARY FOR INTEREST could be raised by taxation and the new con struction thus be accomplished with out the payment of interest at all. Now, isn't theer logic in this plan? Of course the taxation for several years might be a little stilt; but why not, under.the circumstances? Birmingham's interest - cost of bonded debt had run to about $1,* 000,000 a year. Of course, Brook haven’s is so much less we may fool ourselves into feeling comfortable ov er it while the interest flips thru our lingers and we remain in debt for scores of years. However, we mean to say only, and to suggest that if debt can be avoid ed, it ought to be and that $150,000 with the interest added will grow to an enormous indebtedness at last. But—“It’s what they all do”. Lodge Notice. Special Communication/ Brookha ven Lodge No. 241, F. & A. M. Mon day, November 20th, at 7:00 p. m., for the purpose of conferring E. A. Degrees. All E.

At the home of Mrs. D. -Cohn on Thursday afternoon the ClimberB ob served their flrBt Guest Day of the season. There were a large number of invited friends of members gath ered together in the reception rooms, so beautifully arranged and decora ted for the auspicious occasion, and the reception of certain distinguish ed state officers who gave their best to the program. It was a brilliant afternoon’s entertainment, and a real service to the women unfamil iar with the noble purposes and well laid plans of the federation of wo mep’s clubs. Miss Constable inaugurated the ten numbers to be presented with ^vio lin selection during which minds be gan to concentrate, despite the temp ting lure of beautiful gowns and sodial proclivities. Mrs. Nellie C. Perkins, the golden hearted president of the Climbers spoke charming words of cordial wel come yielding graciously her place to Mrs. S. M. Covington, Past President of the State Federation, and honored Chairman of the Day, who spoke on “Fine Arts’’, emphasizing the need of the study of this department. Mrs. Thad Montgomery gave a most charming and graphic outline of “Home Economics” that won the admiration and interest of her au dience much to their profit and pleas ure as well. Mrs. Montgomery is a magnetic and able speaker. Miss Pearl Guyton, State Chair man of Education, gave a brief re port of the Federation’s suppport of Koholarshins at the TTniversitv of Chi ; cago and State Colleges. She made a plea for club women’s support of : the Stirllng-Towner bill which, It Is herself of illiteracy. Miss M. Colie Covington, State Chairman of Endowment presented in charming manner the difficult problems associated with "Finances of the Federation”. The necessity for raising the state dues* in order to finance the various departments adequately was made clear to all hearers, albeit with inimitable wit and good humor. Mrs. B. M. Settle sang most ef fectively the recitative and aria "Adieu Forets” from Jeanne d'Arc, by Tschaikowsky. • Miss Susie V. Powell of Starkville, Chairman County Co-operation, Gen eral Federation and State Chairman of Hoipe Economics gave "A Plan of Co-operation” for linking the urban and rural clubs. Miss Powell’s ori ginal thought, practical plans and well known success in her line of work always insure her an interest ed hearing and hearty applause. Mrs. W. Q. Sharp, president of the Mississippi Art Association, who ap peared before a Brookhaven audience for the first time, charmed her hear ers with her account of activities of the Art Association and dub-women of Jackson, and with her engaging personality. She stressed the im portance of preserving the beauty al ready present in fine old buildings, the natural landscape and attractive residence districts, and urged the study of landscape architecture. Mrs. Jas. C. Hardy of Gulfport, State President of the Mississippi Federation of Women’s Clubs, spoke effectively and appealingly upon "Citizenship”. In her broad and in formative address she showed an es pecial interest in the need for mu tual understanding and help of town ; women and their sisters in the coun try. Mrs. Hardy decried numerical limiting of club membership, saying that club privileges, like religion, should be open to all who desired them. Miss Ruth G. Bale charmingly complimented Mrs. Hardy by reading in her number, “Selected Poems”, two poems written by “Lula Daniel Hardy”.

By smearing a dark splotch on tin heretofore clean record of Summl A. H. S. the Brookhaven Pantheri practically cinched the championshi] •of the Southwestern Mississippi con ference. The first defeat administer ed to the Summit squad was far mon decisive than a 13 to 7 score sounds First, the only touchdown Sum mit scored came from picking up i bounding ball rollicking along to wards the Panther goal from an in completed pass. Not a Panther ex peCted that a play on the hall woulc be allowed, 90 loafed serenely intc ’position awaiting the return of the pigskin. But it was allowed to count as a Summit touchdown. The greater handicap was twe penalizations of forty yards tach foi alleged coaching from the sidelines In wne instance Coach Nevins—who by the way, is as thorough a sports man in every way as ever planned a play—was asking a fan on the side lines to keep quiet, so the players cold hear the signals. The referee thought he was talking to the play ers, so moved the Panther machine back forty yards. The second forty yard penalty was when Umpire Blount o( Summit, heard a kid on the distant bleacher top yell, “Go through the line”. Swalm, whose perfect passing was only equaled by his line plunge gains, was the outstanding figure of the game; although Tadpole Smith, Rube Woodward, Scrappy Johnson, Capt. Herman Smith and Joe Decell covered themselves with glory on many occasions. Swalm is the great est high school back in the state, say all who have watched his work on iue uciu. The "hide-out pass” was worked for a 48 yard gain, quickly followed by a touchdown, Swalm making one of the longest throws ever seen here to Decell, who was twenty yards from an enemy player when he took the pass. Ye Olde Time Football Stars to Play Panthers. The Brookhaven druggists will do a thriving business after next Tues day, for on that date the greatest mixture of football stars of the past ever assembled on a field will play Coach Nevins’ menagerie of “Panth ers” a game of football on the local grid. This aggregation of ex-’s un der the ^leadership of David Hobbs, will include Clyde and George Day, Tom and Leo Cupit, Sid Hartman, Earl Guess, K. W. Bridges, Geo. De cell, Bill Turnbough, Lee Brown, Randolph Roberts and other famous stars of the backfleld. On left end will be Ham Fish, the "flying flash” with Eddie Blue at the other ex treme. In the line will be “Bustem” Bowlus* James Becker, Roland Wall, T. C. Brister, Albert Powell, Albert Muncy, Ralph Decell, Bully Mayfield and some six or several others. The big game will be played for the benefit of a fund to provide the "Panthers” with sweaters bearing the football letter. An admission charge of 25c per, including the players, will help materially in get ting the boys their coveted sweaters. Grady Ford and J. F. (Buck) Ver Henry Furr Again Bests Wrestler Gustave Hanson Henry Furr, local grappler, dem onstrated Thursday night an ability to take punishment and r working knowledge of wrestling that pro mises great things for him in the sporting world. His wrestling bout with Gustave Hanson was one of the hardest fought mat encounters any of the old timjgb at the ring side had ever witnessed. The first fall went to Hanson, af ter 48 minutes of gruelling work from both athletes. Had the mat been larger so that many holds would hot have to have been broken, the first fall would likely have come much earlier. It was agreed that when either man was off the cloth Referee Joe Untz was to break the holds and have the men go back for another start. This saved each man more than once from dangerous sit uations, and gave to- each a' moment to breathe. Hanson wearied Furr into a mo ment of carelessness, and, pretend ing to be after securing a reverse hammerlock hold, quickly changed and slipped the arm-wrist lock hold, with a leg crotch reinforcement. It is one of the new holds, and a dead ly one. There is no escape from such a hold except a backward roll that is almost certain of a broken wrist. The second and third falls went to Furr with each and dispatch. He inverted Hanson oh the first grapple, lifting him high in the air and slamming his head-neck and should ers against the mat with sufficient force to stun him. Before Hanson recovered from his' dazed condition his shoulders had been pinned to the mat. The third fall was even short er, by a minute, 'than the second, re quiring only three minutes. > Hanson was still dazed and groping from the slamming in the second fall, and fell an easy victim to Furr’B powerful body scissors. In the preliminary sparring ex hibition, Eddie Blue punched “Sol dier Al, the Jersey Skeeter” into sub mission in the second round* Hanson announced after the match was over that Henry Purr was the best man of his inches and weight in the game today, and that with proper training, would throw any livipg man of his weight. Hanson made many friends by his gameness and sportsmanlike conduct during and after the match. It will be King's Daughters Mar ket Day thfe day before Thanksgiv ing. Mrs. J. M. Tyler has been very much enjoying the week with her relative, 'Mrs. Emma Siebe, in Crystal Springs, ; , V v ANDRESS’ SUCCESS HERE PHENOMENAL ’ Much Energy and Money Makei Plant The Best in South. s Brookhaven Is proud of the W. L : Andress Motor Co., In that the es i tablishment, in its regal magnifl i cence, reflects the prosperous condit ion or the community, and gives ev idence of the sort of citizens Brook haven attracts. Little more than one year ago W. L. (Doc) Andress came here from Florida. His genial personality soon m*de him “hail fellow, well met’’, as the saying goes, among the business men of the city. From all appear ances “Doc” has had unlimited cap ital, a world of energy and a thor ough knowledge of wljat he has been doiife. . . Daring his short time in Brookha ven, W. L. Andress has sold mor§ Ford cars, trucks, trailers and parts than ever were sold before in all the years combined, » There is no ques tion but that the present W. L. An dress Motor Company’s building is the best equipped, handiest arrang ed, most completely stocked and taken all around, the most service able Ford establishment in the en tire South. One of the objects Mr. Andress had in mind during the planning and completion of his vast establishment was, as he put it, "to have a plant equipped to suit the ‘hard to please’ among car owners and car buyers and those who patronized repair de partments. Early in his business cayeer here Dr. Andress adoDted the nniw in his repair department of employing only expert mechanics. His motto is that it will pay him In the long run to do a job right; that ignorant .and careless repair men will soon ruin the reputation of a shop and drive a way the patrons. Dr. Andress knows his present mechanical force is com petent to do the most difficult Jobs in a reliable manner, and he has therefore established a 90 day guar antee on all work, the same guar antee that applies even on new cars. In | the stock room of the W. L. Andtess Motor Co., is the fullest line of parts for Ford cars, tractors, trucks, trailers and such to be yfound in the state. He is also careful to k^ep on hand a supply of tractors, trucks, trailers and cars for imme diate delivery. The success made here by Dr. An dress will surely bear fruits in the way of drawing other concerns to a city where such phenomenal business growth is possible. -»• m > ■■■■■■ I. C. MAN TALKS ON STRAWBERRIES Railroad Encourages /Growers— Industry Will Develop Country. Mr. C. B. Perkins introduced Mr. E. G. Wade of ■ the Illinois Central Railroad’s development department, at a meeting of prospective strawber ry growers at the Court House Wed nesday morning. Mr. Wade, who has appeared here before as a speaker for the trucking movement, began by stating that ev ery railroad of importance now has a development department. “The freight on ten or fifteen cars of berries doesn’t amount to much”, said Mr. Wade, “but we are after the freight the development of such a movement will mean fifteen or twen ty years Trom now.” In part, Mr. Wade, said that Mad ison Station, Durant, Goodman and other towns in the northern part of the state, at one time built up a fine strawberry industry. They became prosperous, then began getting high prices for other farm products be came indifferent, packed all kinds of berries and eventually ended the sale of the fruit,. Now they are realizing their mistakes and are making a strong effort to "come back” in straw berry growing. ✓ Mr. Wade commended the continu ous study the Italians make of straw berry growing on the farms near Hammond. He said that South Mississippi has exceptional advantages in climate and soil and- can place berries on the market to follow the Tangipahoa crop. The speaker invited questions and discussion as to cultivation, fertili zers and varieties which brought forth many points that prospective strawberry growers present will doubtless find valuble.

J f john McGrath & sews I lilllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllUIIIIIIIIIIIP Hitching Posts on W. Cherokee Street. Dr. I. W. Cooper, at his own ex pense has been compelled by the cir cumstances in the case to erect guards to the fine oaks south of the Lampton Auditorium, or sacrifice his trees. Having "no place to hitch” visit ors and patrons of our business hou ses and other enterprises have been compelled to use the trees as hitch ing posts until at last the roots be came so exposed and the bark so impaired that death to the wide spreading trees, that are such an or nament and comfort to our city, seem ed imminent. But it seems “the city” is stone dead on the subject; at least to the extent that it gives no protection in such contingency and affords no con venience for beasts of burden in that popular part of town known as the west side where much of the trade goes. Dr. Cooper has established a pre cedent! If the city doesn’t provide hospitality for our public visitors private citizens will have to do it at their own expense or stand the dam age of their property. Take your choice. The City and our friends from the country are certainly indebted to Dr. Cooper for the nice line of posts and wire-rope he,has had placed. Dr. Coopef Insists the deed is done for “self-protection” but In doing that he has done a public service that nobody else has done for any reason. Meantime, this standing ground for animals may become objectionable for obvious reasons as it lies Just between the Lampton Auditorium and the Methodist church. We hope the day is not for distant when the city will be amply able to add many things to what we already have that will contribute to our ma terial welfare and express our con ception of co-operation and civic art as well.

R. C. Applewhite, Commissioner. RtisseU and Casteel Each Claim v Governorship.' An amusing incident occurred at Jackson Saturday when the govern orship of' Mississippi—or to put it more exactly—the exercise of gu bernatorial authority was in dispute says the Magnolia Gazette. Gov. Russell had gone to Memphis to witness a football game between the universities of Mississippi and Tennessee. Early in the forenoon Lieut. Gov. Homer Casteel appeared at the executive offices in the state capltol and announced that he had assumed the reins of government. Acting Gov. Casteel’s first official act was the issuing of pardons to two ’’lifers” in the state penitentiary whom Gov. Russell had refused to release. Private Secretary Macey Dinkins at once wired Russell what Casteel 5. ■ V .47 4 rr; . .' 'r.-y]33S$lsV;• ..; v ■■ ' ■■ri? was up to. Whereupon, Russell got himself quickly Into an automobile, and broke all speed laws of Memphis and Tennessee in getting to the state line. From Horn Lake, Just inside Mississippi, Russell phoned his sec retary that he was back in the state and that Casteel was no longer gov ernor. Assuming that Russell would re turn to’Memphis to witness the game, Casteel hung around the cap ital until five o’clock, and again is sued pardon to his two penitentiary pets. It appears, however, that Russell remained all day at Horn Lake, re turning next day to Jackson. Perhaps, the courts will be called on to determine whether the govern or was out of the State at the time when Casteel issued one or the other of his pardons. New Puzzle Game.
