Boll Weevil” prepared by the
Lnitcd Stales Department of

Dasher, who helped to put
over its showing by the busi
ness men of Newport and
Tuckerman a few weeks ago.
Mr. Dasher addressed the
farmers and advanced ideas for
cultural method of taking care
ot the boll weevil, and in con

AMENDMENT NO. 14
To the people of Independ
ence County:
As a candidate for the office
of representative, I feel it my
I duty to explain to the people,
whose servant I desire to be,
that I make plain my position
upon one of the leading ques
tions before the people at this
time. It has been reported that
I was placed in this race by the
teachers of this county, and in
the interest of Amendment No.
14. In regard to that state
ment, I will say, that I have al
ways opposed Amendment 14,
because it is an attempt to foist
and unlimited tax upon the
people, which is always dan
gerous. 1 refused either to
sign or circulate a petition to
initiate this Amendment, and
shall continue to oppose it.
Respectfully submitted,
J. C. WYNNE,
Candidate for Representative.

COLORED BASEBALL IS
FILLED WITH ACTION
Dissatisfaction in a negro
practice baseball game by lo
cal negroes yesterday resulted
in a trip for some of the local
colored population to Mayor
J. H. Holderby’s court this
morning.
According to the testimony
the trouble seems to have start
ed when Lawrence Barris,
catcher, objected to being hit
on the shins by Herman Hen
ning, batter. Henning, is was
said, was very careless in
weilding the stick, and turned
same loose on one or two oc
casions, striking Barris each
time.
Hitting a ball, Henning slung
the bat back on Bams and
started for first base. Barris
overtook Henning and a gen
eral argument started, when
it is said, Willie Dugan joined
in and he and Barris locked
horns, Barris getting Dugan1
down. Dugan’s wife who
S was a witness to both the
game and attack on Willie,
had no desire to see her storm
! and strife mistreated by other
j hands than hers, made a
| charge into the thickest of the
| fray with the home plate as
her only weapon, and checked
I hostilities with the result that
Barris came out with a skinned
head.
The final score resulted in
FAILED TO GET HIS
NAME ON THE TICKET
Candidate for Representative
Misinformed as to Date
For Qualifying
Oscar Warren of Cord who
had recently announced as a
! candidate for Representative,
tailed to get his name on the
ticket as a result of failure to
sign the pledge and pay the fee
within the time prescribed by
the county central committee.
Like many others, Mr. War
ren did not know when the
time expired for candidates
qualify to get on the ticket,
but gained the impression from
an article published in one of
the Batesville papers some time
ago that candidates had until
July 20 to qualify.
He states, however, that in
order to get the desired infor
mation, he called the secretary
of the county central commit
tee over the telephone several
days ago and asked howr much
time he had in which to quali
fy.
Mr. Warren says he was told
by the secretary, “Oh, you have
plenty of time.” No other in
formation was given him, he
says. This naturally strength
ened his impression that he
had until July 20.
Mr. Warren was in Newark
Monday en route to Batesville
to qualify and was surprised
when told that he was too late.
Being unable to get his name
cn the ticket, Mr. Warren
states that he will not be ini
the race and has given The
Journal the following state
ment in regard to the matter:
WARREN'S STATEMENT j
Being misinformed as to the
time of paying my assessment j
and singing the pledge, my
name will not be on the ticket |
in the Democratic primary
August 8.
It would be unfair to my
friends for me to make the
race under the circumstances.!
I am disappointed, but not dis
couraged.
We need to be more interest
ed in a higher plane of citizen- !1
ship than in politics. We are ;
reconstructing our civil life and
industrial conditions, from the
devastation of the World War;
and in all probability our next
legislature will be a memorable
one in the history7 of our state.
The same old questions con
front us that have been here
for ages; but they are not to
be dealt with in the same okl
way.
If we are to build a higher ’
citizenship, we must help the
boys and girls in the one-room
schools. They are legion and
the safety of our future de- 1
pends upon them.
One of the greatest ques
tions for the American people
to decide today is, whether we
will suppress crime by depress
ing it, or by detecting it.
The progress of our civiliza
ton and the Americanization
of our federal government ap
peal to us for a higher citizen
ship and a greater Arkansas.
OSCAR" WARREN.

and costs each, with the ad
monition that future baseball
differences will be adjusted
on a much higher scale. The
total fines and costs amounted
to $9.00. Barris submitted to
a charge of assault before

CATTLE STAMPEDE IS
HAIR-RAISING SCENE
f* vc fho-scnd M id Sleers Go
Cn Rampage Cn Big V/cet
e:n Ranch
A cattle stampede of five
thousand head ob b i g steers
oi::rht to furnish kick enough
tor the most jaded spectator,,
■specially when you can see
thousands of fire-crazed steers
ashing wildly toward you with
-uch force and speed and com
ing so near that you can almost
hear the wild roar of their
loofs upon the ground and hear
the mad snorts and bellows of
the big long-homed animals as
they come nearer and nearer.
Twenty cameras concealed
in small trees in the very midst
j1 the great stampede caught
his spectacle from every angle
md it furnished one of the
most thrilling scenes ever
caught by a motion picture
camera.
This is the big thrill in Man
0 Man the big Unversal pic
uer based on Jackson Grego
y’s novel which has been read
jy thousands. It is the story of
1 man who went down until he
ould go no lower, and then
■limbed back with a little girl’s
land in his an a woman’s smile
waiting to greet him.
It is a great story of the West
.vith Harry Carey as the star,
supporting Carey are Harold
doodwin, formerly a Fox star,
Lillian Rich, May Garcia and a
lumber of other actors of abili
:y.
It is worth a dollar to see the
great cattle stampede in “Man
lo Man” but you can see t,his
picture and a Harold Lloyd
comedy at the Royal Friday for
inly 30 cents.
In the South sea islands it
:osts eight spearheads to buy
i wife. In this country a single
lonehead often accomplishes
his result.
