LOCAL MINSTREL SHOW
HI1 (HUE' SEASON
Citizens Take Part in Homo
Talent Performance Well
Worth the Paltry Sum
of Admission I
Local citizens, in an endeavor to
raise funds tor the Civic Association
treasury, staged a genuine "Old
Time Minstrel Show," at the town
hall on Tuesday and Wednesday
evenings of this week, and played to
a full house both nights.
. The chorus was made up of about
35 "well-lamp-blacked" negroes ,who
lacked nothing from witty remarks
to the trusty razor and "de bones. "
The old time darky songs, such as:
"Massa's in de Cold, Cold Ground,"
"Old Black Joe," "Carry Me Back
to Old Virginia," and 'others were
sung with much sincerity, which
brought applause after applause
irora the audience,
i A genuine "Hoe Down," and:
"Clog Dance," clapped the climax,
although a genuine "Nigger Crap
Game" scored heavy results on ac
count of the size of the dice.
The end men (comedians) handled
their parts to a perfection and the
Colored Parson's Sermon on "Jonah
Swallowing the Whale, " was alone
well worth the price of admission.
After hearing the solos sung by
many of our prominent businessmen
disguised as negroes we begin to
think some have missed their call
ings they should be on the stage or
diverting their voice to public en
tertainment of some sort.
The chorus as a whole was well
selected and had anything beat this
side of New York. I
If you were unfortunate to have
missed this show you missed at least
"seven or eleven" years of your life.
ENTERTAINED IN HONOR OF
Mrs. T. R. Shimmons of the Meth
odist church entertained her Bible
class of fifteen members very delight
fully at her home on West Front
street last Tuesday afternoon in honor
of one of the members, Mrs. Stella
Carter Kopp, a bride of a few weeks.
Mrs. Kopp was presented with a beau
tiful wedding present given to her by
teacher and classmates.

METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH
W. H. Spybey, Pastor.
The heart of our Evangelical -faith
is that we cannot be gooo alone. We
need help direct and real from our
Father, God, "through Jesus Christ,
our Lord." Sometimes it is well to re
mind ourselves of the cost to God of
this help. While perhaps He could
make a million worlds without getting
tired, it cost His own heart blood to
bring the help that will "deliver us
from evil." And without this help we
are weak and inefficient in our effort
to live lives of moral victory.
Last Sunday's services were well
attended in spite of wintry weather
and God made His presence felt.
The sermon qext Sabbath morning
on the subject: "Praying for the
Kingdom." At night, "Intercessory
Prayer." Also the eighth cycle of the
serial "The Son of Democracy." The
particular subject is "Down the

PHS DEFEATS GENOA
By J. II. W..
The P. H. S. boys, journeyed to
Genoa to play the high school of that
town Friday night. After climbing
through snowdrifts and pushing the
car for a ways we finally arrived there
at nine o'clock and gave Genoa a fine
little beating. P. H ,S. played up to
form in the first half and scored 21
points while Genoa scored only three.
They gave the heavyN Genoa boys a
taste of real basketball and then start
ed a defensive game in the last half.
Genoa came back strong and by
playing a very rough game they were
able to pile up 11 points to our 4. P.
H. S. was not used to playing on
cement floors and in the second half
were footsore and tired and played a
slow game. The final score stood 25
to 14 in favor of P. H.'s.
The girls' basketball team played
their first out-of-town gme at Bowl
ing Green last Friday and were de
feated with a score of 26 to 18. The
odds were rather against us, but we
are confident that Bowling Green will
be beaten Friday night when they
come here for a return game.
The P. H. S. freshmen won over
the Toledo five in a hard and rough
game at the High School gym Friday
night. They defeated them 28 to 13.
The freshmen deserve credit for beat
ing the Toledoo five, which is a much
larger team than the freshies.
The town team also won from the
Arrows Friday night the P. H .S.
gym. The score was 23 to 12.
This, Friday night the boys play
Genoa high and the girls play Bowl
ing Green and the freshies nlay Bowl
ing Green second. Come and see us-

VILLAGE TO PROTEST
HIGH STREET CAB FAHES
Utilities Commission Set Date
of Hearing for Tuesday,
The Maumce Valley put into effect
its new fares last Friday.
The fare each way from Perrysburg
to Toledo is 20 cents if paid on the
car. If you buy a round trip ticket
at the station the fare is 35 cents. A
strip of ten tickets will now cost $1.50
instead. of $1.00.
The hearing before the public util
ities commission will occur on Tues
day, Feb. 3rd., at Columbus at the
same time as the hearing- on the
abolishment of the freight service,
and will be attended by Mayor Can-
iieldand T.M.Franey, President of
the Civic Association.
The village, to be in a position to
know exactly how many were, riding
on the cars and so that nothing could
be put over on them, placed men on
all cars, who took the exact number
and the amount of fare paid.
Some of the results were startling.
The car leaving here at 6:12 last
Thursday morning had qn 112 pas
sengers when it reached the Ross
ford city limits, and upon arrival at
the interurban station at Toledo it
had carried 147 people. The car will
probably seat not more than 60 peo
ple. The village has also gathered other
matter to lay before the commission,
and in this fight they will be joined
by a committee composed of Attor
neys W. H. Harris and L. M. Murphy,
A stiff fight will be put up by the
representatives of the two' vilages
against this increase in fare and if
the results are not attained" it will' bo
