' Matinee Club have received a letter from Dr. Walley, State Health Inspector, stating that v Tupelo was on the list of the I towns that would be inspected by the state board officials. There were 41 towns that got on this list and these towns will be vis ited within the next 90 days by the State Health Board. The in spection will be made as rapidly as opportunity is afforded the of ficials. Now that Tupelo has made a good enough mark to get on the list we should not backslide and lose the ground we have already gained. Of course it seems like a long time for some of us to keep our premises fit for inspec tion, but we know not what day •the inspector will drop in on us j and we must therefore be ready. Whether or not this is a scheme of the state board of health to keep the towns in proper sanitary condition through the summer we cannot say, but if it is we have all bit and we must stay with them until the end. Nobody should weary in well doing, but the good ladies who have charge of the work, we can safely say, will not relax their efforts and we must rally to their support. They have done a fine part by the town, the work will redound to the health of the city during j the summer months and all ad mit'that the city is more beauti ful than ever before.

Monday evening ' Vice-Presi dent Marshall delivered his lec ture on "National Tendencies" before an appreciative audience. ; The Vifce-President and Mrs. 1 Marshall reached Tupelo at noon Sunday and went to the Tupelo 1 Hotel where they were guests. I β Sunday afternoon they enjoy- I ed an automobile ride over the1 city with Mr. and Mrs. George T. Mitchell. Sunday evening they attended services at the Presbyterian church, the Vice President himself being an elder in the Presbyterian church. Monday morning Vice-Presi dent Marshall visited the public school and made a very appro priate address in the chapel be fore the pupils. The stage and boxes at the Comus theatre were beautifully decorated with choice flowers and evergreens and the American flags. In the background a huge American flag was suspended. Mr. Marshall was eloquently introduced in a short speech by IJ λ*ι Πλι k^nrn pressed the pleasure that he and Mrs. Marshall had enjoyed dur ing their stay here, the hospital ity of our people and the beauties of our little city. He stated that the happiest years of their lives had been,spent in a town about the size of Tupelo when he was a "country lawyer." The Vice-President displayed the humorous side of his charac ! ter in a number of amusing inci dents which he related before f getting down to the gist of his ,* lecture, lie staged that Ttrpelo j was known all over the North as I the home of John Allen and the; government fish hatchery: that; while there was a fish hatchery here he felt sure that there was; no suckers in Tupelo. He review- ; ed the progress of the formation ;. of civil laws and related impres-1 ί sive incidents that had stamped j themselves upon the history of ι the country at various periods. He stated that he was "a states rights democrat" and believed I thoroughly in the doctrine taught I by that school of politicians. In his opinion there would not have been the necessity for an inter state commerce commission nor the recently established trade commission had the states exer cised their rights properly in reg ulating corporations. That where a state had certain rights, certain duties also followed those rights and that where a corporation en deavored to create a monopoly it became the duty of the state to step in and cancel the charters it had granted the corporation to do business. The states failing in this duty the necessity arose for the national government to provide a means of controlling and keeping within legal bounds the corporations of the country. Referring to the sinking of the Luscitania by a German subma rine, Mr. Marshall said that &e should not become too greatly excited and exasperative over the unfortunate incident. That upon taking passage upon this vessel the passengers of the un fortunate ship were [virtually upon British soil. That the inci dent was not a cause for war, but it was to be deplored by every lover of humanity. In his opin ion. President Wilson will work out the correct policy in handling this matter and that if it becomes necessary for this country to strike then the President will say so. The Vice-President believes that we should continue our poli cy of pçace until an alien plants Lee County's Strongest Bank "THE BANK OF SAFETY AND SERVICE" - * ——» ι Statement of the Financial Condition of the Peoples Bank & Trust Co.
