The automo? bile has brought the most 'remote settlement almost as close to the center of things as the next county was in the old days. // To hear some tire dealers talk you might think that nobody knew anything about tires except the fellow from Broadway. That's not the basis we go on. We give every man credit for knowing what he is spending his money on, whether he drives up here in his small car from ten miles out in the country or is passing through from the capital in his limousine. HI That's one thing we like about U. S. Tires. They make no distinction between the small car ? owner and the owner of the biggest car in the country. It's all the same to them. So long as a man owns an automobile?large or small ? he's entitled to the very best tire they can give him. Quality has always been the outstanding feature of U. S. Tires. There's no limit on the U. S. guarantee. All U. S. Tires are guaranteed for the life of the tire* IV ?* We have given a lot of thought to this tire proposi? tion.

Radford Nor? mal Notes Reports from Ilm members of the graduating cluss of tins in. stilution holh for Juno uud Au? gust of tho present your show that thoy all have accepted po? sitions to toach for tho coming year with an average notary of about $100.00 per month. These young women uro under con? tract to toach in different parts of tho stale und uro each re? ceiving about tho uatnc salary, which shows that tho salary schedule of tho .whole state is considerably increased. Owing to the increased cost of board, clothing nnd living expenses in general and tho high standards of work and character now required of Nor? mal School graduates the salary of teachers although greatly in? creased ovor former years, is not commensurate witli the sab nriea in other occupations and eovaliens that are opan to wo mon of something tike the same attainments and preparation that the Normal School grad? uates have. In consequence of this tho shortage of touchors in practically all sections of Vir ginia is more or less ncuto at this time. It is, howovor, grat? ifying tliut the pulliic is begin? ning to realize the importance, and even necessity, of securing the best type of trained teach? ers and of providing adequate salaries. When the legislation of the Inst General Assembly becomes uilectivo the amount of money available for teachers' salaries will be greatly increased over the amount that is now avail atlle. ? An interesting feature in con? nection with the work of the 1920 Normal School graduates is the large demand for home economics teachers. The num? ber of teachers employed in this form of servico has constantly increased for several years, but a still more interesting fact is tho large number of Normal School graduates, who are teaching in rural and distinct? ly village places in email schools und uro receiviug satisfactory salaries for nino months. This shows that the only thing nec? essary to secure n strong and woll trninod type of teacher for the rural schools io an adequate salary with n reasonably corn?| fortablo.^,boarding place, and! nine months school term. | When school boards are able to offer as good or better oala ios for work iu tbo rural schools as tho city Bchool boards are able to pay, there will bo no dif difflculty i n soouring the strongest typo of teachers for the rural school. American Legion Notes l(i the light of recent develop? ment^ the Second Annual Con? vention of tlto American Legion, which will be held in Cleveland the three days commencing Sep? tember 27, will be called on to determine whether tbo future policy of tho legion shall be "ab? solutely non-partisan" iu poli? tics and political issues, or whether the present constitu? tional restrictions on such ac? tivities shall be amended and broadened. Virginia's delegates will leave Richmond next Thursday and Saturday, and will go uninstruet ed on' this issue, which promises to be one of the utmost impor? tance at tbo convention. Tbo matter was not discussed at the recent state convention in Rich? mond, and the Virginia delega? tion lias not been informed of tbo views of the locnl posts. Persons actively engaged in promoting the legion's interests recognize that circumstances have decreed that the legion could not ignore the existence of politics, and the demand for a new statement of policy on the attitudo of the organization to? ward's politics has been spon? taneous. In several states there lias been activity by legion mem? bers in recent elections, princi pally because of war records, and iu many quarters it is declared that the departments and posts idiould have greater freedom in such matters. Many issues will be raised at the Cleveland convention, when it is expected that the four-fold beneficial legislation bill will again command extended con? sideration and debute. There is understood to be opposition ill some of the Southern States, but Virginia has officially approved thu proposed law for the second time, although the department convention voted to take no part iu any movement to urge its passage by Congress. Another important question which may assume some propor? tions and be freely debated, iu tbo question of providing a sys? tem for the disciplining of mem? bers, posts or departments which violate the constitution or poli? cies determined upon by resolu? tions of the national convention. The constitution now fails to provide means for exercising of such discipline on members, branches or posts. Fully 11,000 delegates from ev? ery state in the Union, and representing practically every section of every state, are o.\ pectep lo attend the convent ion, for which elaborate plans are now being made in Cleveland.
