M’ CLATCHEY TO MANAGE DRIVE OFCOTTONBODY ATLANTA, August 30.—D. F. McClatchey, secretary of the Geor gia Senate, former reading clerk of the Georgia House, former executive secertary of the Georgia Food Ad ministration and who was loaned to the government by the Southern Bell Telephone Company, all-round good fellow and one of the most poplar men in Georgia, was today appointed campaign manager of the Georgia division of the American Cotton Association, which is conduct ing a big membership drive through out the state. The state headquarters of the as sociations, which have been tempor arily located in the Arcade building, adjoining the national headquarters of the association, will be moved to the Senate Chamber at the State Capitol Monday morning. Campaign Manager McClatchey will be closely asociated in his new work with Secretary-Treasurer J. A. Davis, of the Georgia division of the American Cotton Association. Mr. Davis, who is a a well known banker and farmer of Sardis, Ga., is himself an organizer and developer of rare ability. Both men will be assisted •by other officals and committeemen of the state organization. Reports received at the state head quarters during the last few days in dicate that Georgia will lead many of the Southern states in its mem bership campaign. Many voluntary pledges of support have corile from sections which have not yet been .reached by the campaign committee. The campaign runs until October 1 and by that time every “nook and corner” of Georgia wil be covered. “So firmly do I believe that the future of the cotton farmer of Geor gia and the South is wrapped up in the American Cotton Association, that I have laid aside my personal affairs, and have come to Atlanta to devote my energies to this cause which appeals to me as no other movement ever launched has done,” said Mr. Davis. “I firmly believe that we shall have a million mem bers in the association by October 1, and that figure will not remain stationary for any length of time. The only way that we can put cot ton where it ought to be in price is through the organization of the farmers themselves and this is rapid ly coming to pass in our present organization.” HOOKS TAKES AGENCY FOR SUPERIOR TRUCKS The Hooks Motor Company an nounced Saturday that during the week they had sold two Chalmers, 1919 models; on to Cullen King, of Elkville, and the' other to T. M. Lowry, Jr., of Plains “Me also have cleared out a number of rebuilt cars this week, ’ J. D. Hooks said. Di Thad Wise purchase! a Peer-J k-s too. Business is pick, i; up right a: eng. I “We have secured recently the local agency for the famous Georgia made Superior truck. We have been afterthis truck for a long time, and are fortunate in securing it. In pur-: chasing a truck, the most important single point is the service that can' be rendered the purchaser after he has been running his truck for a while. The Superior is made in At lanta by my friends, the Willing hams. When anything goes wrong, a part is lost or broken, we can call up over the phone and have the part here next morning. This is one rea son why we selected the Superior. And, then, too, it is made right here in Georgia, and we believe in sup porting home production when every thing else is equal. A carload of these trucks arrived today.” Daily Thought.

First of all I appreciate the ability of a live newspaper above all things else to build and develop its’city and its section and its institution. I am glad that the Times-Recorder is still left at the helm as a builder. Just 40 years in educational work, inci dently and otherwise I have known the politics of the State of Geor gia for 25 years; appointed by three governors, Terrell, Brown and Harris for terms of six years each as trus tee of the State Normal school; four years a member of the Democratic Executive Committee, two year. in the legislature and ten years as chairman of the Congressional Ex ecutive Committee. Just a few of the little things. A farm of over two thousand acres has never had me at the “helm.” But my one purpose is to sincerely thank you. Respect fully, J. M. COLLUM. Third District A. & M.

Why We Selected the | SUPERIOR MOTOR TRUCK 5 in Preference to all Others | Carload Now in and Ready for Immediate Delivery I I * IN SECURING THE AGENCY OF THE SUPERIOR TRUCK WE | J HAD SEVERAL REASONS IN MIND. AMONG THEM: - : ..... I i FIRST—The Supe-ior Truck is a Georgia product, built in Atlanta, within six • hours of Americus. When a question of parts or service comes up ? we do not have to wait for days to hear from a great distance. The J builders of the truck are where we can talk to them personally and t j ! immediately adjust all troubles. SECOND —Before taking the agency we investigated all trucks and deter mined in our own minds that we had secured a truck that was the equal of any and the superior of MANY. We found a truck that was extraordinarily popular in its home town. J THIRD—The mechanical construction met our ideas of what a truck should » be, ideas gained after years of experience in the handling and us- ing of Trucks. We found each unit in the SUPERIOR absolutely standard. We found the SUPERIOR is driven by Red Seal Con- J tinental truck motors, which has no superior for power and endur ance, a motor peculiarly adapted to our local needs. * : ... FOURTH —And most important of all: Our ability to render 100 per cent. £ service to you. In purchasing a motor truck SERVICE is of more (importance than the truck itself. Here’s a truck on which we can J give 100 per cent service, for the very simple reason that the / manufacturer of this truck is just at the other end of our tele- " phone. No more long waits to hear from some cold-blooded manufacturer away off in the Northwest, who never saw us and I who we probably will never see. With the SUPERIOR we are dealing with HOME FOLKS. The Willinghams, the manufactur ers, are OUR FOLKS. They are building trucku for their own 1 J people—trucks for home consumption.

THREE CARS OF PEARS SHIPPED OUT IN WEEK Three cars of pears were shipped last week from Americus by S. R. Heys, with a total of 1,279 bushels, and he plans to ship a fourth car Tuesday.
