HAD GOOD DANCE AT PIERCE
We hear of southern hospitality,
but Pierce extends a variety tbat at
least equals It. Quite a number of
local pleasure seekers partook of
this friendly spirit Saturday night,
the occasion being a social dance
given in the school house auditor
ium by Mr. and Mrs. Harry Wells
and Miss Mabel Dundas. One feature
of the evening's enjoyment was a
vocal solo by Miss Dorothy Lawson.
Dainty refreshments were served be
tween dances by the hostesses. All
visitors report a most enjoyable
evening -and morning,
rumors afloat that another dance Is
to be given tomorrow night,

JIMMY VALENTINE
Thousands upon thousands of
persons have thrilled to the grip
ping story of Jimmy Valentine,
gentleman and master-cracksman.
This celebrated stage drama by
Paul Armstrong has swept to tri
umph in every theatre in the world,
and now in its screen version causes
to live again as fascinating a hero
as any author ever coneived. Hand
some and reckless Jimmy—tender

did save f r his penchant for safe
bealring. With nerves or chilled
steel, his finger-tips sand-papered
until the raw, bleeding nerves fair
ly throb with the silent fall of
tumblers in vault doors, he opens
safes without tools or dynamite.
Freed from Sing Sing and in love
with a wonderful girl, he "goes
straight." But ever in his wake
stalks Doyle, the detective, who has
sworn to "get" him and put him
back behind prison bars. Comes the
moment when Jimmy has to make
his great decision:shall he force
open a bank safe and betray him
self, or shall he leave his sweet
heart's little sister, who has locked
herself behind the ponderous door,
to perish? How he meets this crisis,
and what conies of it are developed
in "Alias Jimmy Valentine" with
suspense that is electric and a cli
max that leaves the beholder of
this superb drama breathless. The
play provides Bert Lyt-11 with a ve
hicle that calls for a display of his
greatest powers of characterization.

It is better to be the free and disin

to proclaim America's duty to the

Disposed as we are, the way is very
simple. Let the failure attending as
sumption, obstinacy, impracticability
and delay be recognized and let us
find the big, practical, unselfish way
to do our part, neither covetous be
cause of ambition nor hesitant through
fear, but ready to serve ourselves, hu
manity and God. With a Senate advis

I would hopefully approach the nations
of Europe and of the earth, preposing
that understanding which makes us
a willing participant in the consecra
tlou of nations to a new relationship
to commit the moral forces of the
world, America included, to peace and
international justice, still leaving
America free, independent and self
reliant. but offering friendship to all

Humanity is Restive.
It is folly to close our eyes to out
standing facts. Humanity is restive,
much of the world is in revolution, the
agents of discord aud destruction have
wrought their tragedy in pathetic Rus
sia, have lighted their torches among
other peoples, and hope to see America
as a part of the great red conflagra
tion. Ours is the temple of liberty
under the law, and it is ours to call
the sons of opportunity to its defense.
America must not only save herself,
but ours must be the appealing voice
to sober the world.

It must be understood that toil atone
makes for accomplishment and ad
vancement, and righteous possession
is the reward of toil, and its incentive.
There Is no progress except in the
stimulus of competition.
The chief trouble today is that the
world war wrought the destruction of
healthy competition, left our store
houses empty and there is a minimum
production when our need is maximum.
Maximums, not minimums, is the call
of America. It isn't a new story, be
cause war never fails to leave depleted
storehouses and always impairs the
efficiency of production. War also es
tablishes its higher standards for
wages, and they abide. I wish the
higher wage to abide, on one explicit
condition—that the wage earner will
give full return for the wages received.
of
Greater Production Necessary.
1 want, somehow, to appeal to the
sons aud daughters of the republic, to
every producer, to join hand and brain
in production, more production, honest
production, patriotic production, be
cause patriotic production is no less a
defense of our best civilization than
that of armed force. Profiteering is a
crime of commission, under-production
is a crime of omission.
We must work
our most and best, else the destructive
reaction will come.
The menacing tendency of the pres
ent day is not chargeable wholly to the
unsettled and fevered conditions
ed by Hie v,ur. The manifest weak
ness in popular government lies in the
temptation to appeal to grouped citi
zenship for political advantage.
It would be the blindness of folly
to ignore the activities in our
own
ceuntry which are aimed to destroy
our economic system, and to commit
us to the colossal tragedy which has
destr veil all freedom and made Rus
sia Impotent. This movement is not |
to be halted in throttled liberties. We j
must not abridge the freedom of |
speech, the freedom of press, or the j
freedom of assembly, because there is
no promise in repression. These lib
ertles are as sacred as the freedom of
religious belief, as inviolable as the
rights of life and the pursuit of happi
ness. We do hold to the right to crush

We are so confident that much of
the present day insufficiency and in
efficiency of transportation are due to
the withering hand of government op
eration that we emphasize anew our
opposition to government ownership,
we want to expedite the reparation
and make sure the mistake Is not re
peated.
A state of inadequate transportation
facilities, mainly chargeable to the
failure of governmental experiment, is
losing millions to agriculture, it is hin
dering industry, it is menacing the
American people with a fuel shortage
little less than a peril. It emphasizes
the present day problem and suggests
that spirit of encouragement and as
sistance which commits all America
to relieve such an emergency.

credit have depreciated the dollar just
as expansion and inflation have dis
credited the coins of the world. We

Will Prevent Unreasonable Profits.
In all sincerity we promise the pre
vention of unreasonable profits, we
challenge profiteering with all the
moral force and the legal powers of
government and people, but it is fair,
aye. It is timely, to give reminder that
law is net the sole corrective of our
economio ills.
Let us call to all the people for
thrift and economy, for denial and sac
rifice if need be, for a nation-wide
drive against extravagance and luxury,
to a recommittal to simplicity of liv
ing, to that prudent and normal plan
cf life which is the health of the .re
public.
New conditions, which attend amaz
ig growth and extraordinary indus
rial development, call for a new and
forward looking ptogram. The Ameri
can farmer had a hundred and twenty
millions to feed In the home market,
and heard the cry of the world for
food and answered it, though he faced
an appalling task amid handicaps nev
er encountered before.
Contemplating the defenselessness of
the individual farmer to meet the or
ganized buyers of his products and the
distributors of the things the farmer
buys, I hold that farmers should not
only be permitted but encouraged to
join in cooperative association to reap
the just measure of reward merited by
their arduous toil.
Aid to Farmer Pledged.
Our platform is an earnest pledge
of renewed concern for this most es
sential and elemental industry and in
both appreciation and interest
pledge effective expression in law and
practice. We will hail that coopera
tion which again will make profitable
and desirable the ownership and op
eration of comparatively small farms
intensively cultivated, and which will
facilitate the caring for the products
of farm and orchard without the la
mentable waste under present condi
tions.
America would look with anxiety
the discouragement of farming activity
either through the government's neg
lect or its paralysis of socialistic prac
tices. A Republican administration
will be committed to renewed regard
for agriculture and seek the partici
pation of farmers in curing the ills
justly complained of, and aim to place
the American farm where It ought to
be—highly ranked In American activ
ities and fully sharing the highest good
fortunes of American life.
Becomingly associated with this sub
ject are the policies of irrigation and
reclamation, so essential to agricul
tural expansion, and the continued de
velopment of the great and wonderful
West.

ernment should give its effective aid
in solving the problem of ample and

Government Should Protect Bonds.
I believe this government should
make its liberty and victory bonds
worth all tbat its patriotic citizens
paid in purchasing them. I believe
the tax burden imposed for war emer
gency must be revised to the needs of
peace and in the interest of equity In
distribution of the burden.
I believe the negro citizens of Amer
ica should be guaranteed the enjoy
ment of all their rights, that they have
earned the full measure of citizenship
bestowed, that their sacrifices In blood
on the battlefields cf the republic have
entitled them to all of freedom and
opportunity, all of sympathy and aid
that the American spirit of fairness
and justice demands. I believe there
Is an easy and open path to righteous
relationship with Mexico. It has seem
ed to me that our undeveloped and
uncertain and infirm policy has made
us a culpable party to the government
al misfortunes in that land,
lations ought to be both friendly and
sympathetic. We would like to ac
claim a stable government there and
offer a neighborly hand in pointing out
the way to greater progress. I be
lieve in law enforcement. If elected
I mean to be a constitutional president
and It is Impossible to ignore the con
stitution, unthinkable to evade the
law, when our every commttal is to
orderly government.
The four million defenders on land
and sea were worthy of the best tradi
tions of a people never warlike in
peace and never pacifist in war. They
commanded our pride, They have
gratitude which must have genuine
pression. It is not only a duty, it is
a privilege to see that the sacrifices
made shall be requitted and that those
still suffering from casualties and dis
abilities shall be abundantly aided and
restored to the highest capabilities of
citizenship and its enjoyment.
American Womanhood Praised.
The womanhood of America, always
its glory, its inspiration and the potent
uplifting force in its social and spirit
ual development. Is about to be
franchised,
go the fact is already accomplished.
My party edict, by my recorded vote,
by personal ocnviction, I am commit

my earnest hope, my sincere desire,
that the one needed state vote be
quickly recorded in the affirmation of
the right of equal suffrage and that
the vote of every citizen shall be cast
and counted on the approaching elec
tion.
And to the great number of noble
women who have opposed in convic
tion this tremendous change in the
ancient relation of the sexes as ap
plied to government 1 venture to plead
that they will accept the? full respon

give to the best in the republic their
