This waa a mistake. The negative represented fey Key and Cald well won in the dweii-wion of the sub ject, "Organized Labor in a Greater Menace to the Uoitev States than Or- j ganized Capital. " Awarda made in the ! different departments of the school for the highest average were given in the paper last week. Tbii' week we give the high averages of a nunAor of the pupils in order to show the-gradiug made by the school for the year. ' It must he remembered that the school lost the use of the dormitory building last year, and it was then necessary to board the pupils at private houses. The dormitory system in Union City was not a success because the dormitory did not belong to the school. It was owned by citizens and rented to the school, and under such arrangement it could not succeed. The school was fortunate, how ever, in getting good boarding. quarters for the pupils, and its success has not only been good in attendance, but of the highest average in scholarship since the school has been organized. Everywhere complimentary remarks are being heard , about the commencement atid the work of the school. The Union City Training School is conducted by two of the best school men in the country, Messrs. De Bow and Aydelot, and they have with them the assistance of thoroughly com petent teachers in the primary work, in music and in exptession. - The Training School has always been one of Union City's best educational and financial assets. Some of the finest young men and young women from different sections of West Tennessee have been enlisted in the work of this school as students, and sorao of the best talent have gone from its work to larger institutions of learning and to other important avenues of life. The Union City Training School has grown in its standard of work. Its en rollment has not kept pace with this work. This has been for lack of proper backing. The Training School should have an endowment. It should have a better school building, larger equip ment. The school should have addition al grounds and a "dormitory belonging to the school exempt from taxation. In other words the school should have better local support.' There is nothing under the sun so beneficial to the growth and maintenance of the smaller munieipaliums as good schools. The .. factories are builders, but the class of citizens that the school brings is far superior rttid of infinitely more value. Union City hasone of the best public L'tcbcclr is thz S-utl;. i...: I-... -V- have a good public si.hool dots nut argue that we should neglect the Train jn'v Pcliool. The lro:tdaugd, broad miisdcd citizen will give 'bin un-dilsh and i iuiiuMasticsuj port to both schools. Let us lock around for awhile. Look at Lebanort; look at Murfreesboro; look at Dickson; look at Martin. All tbee towns actually springing into uyw life y.h tbeii' school-!, and yet Union City bus never awakened to interets. Martin bus actually grown from hun dred to thousands in a few years with her schx!s; she has grown from a sanip to one of the prettiest graded and paved little cities in VV?t Tennes see. Lebanon is virtually a big school, and one of the most famous in the South. Slurfreeshoro, for years at a standstill, is now springing up by leaps and bounds with her new normal and other school interestf. We cannot at tract manufacture because of the dis crimination in freight rates in favor of the larger centers, and inexperienced home capital i3 not attracted by indus trial investments. Therefore why not turn our attention to schools. We have one of the best public schools in the South. Let us make it larger and better and greater in evory way. We have a good training school. Let us co-operate and get the old preju dice carted out of town and turn our attention to better and greater things. "Where there's a will there's a way." The scholarship medal, offered by L. S. Parks for the highest grade made on all subjects for the entire year, was won by Harold Thompson with an aver age of 94 7 18; O'Bryan Horner came next with 912-9; Nellie Dietzel next with oy li'lti. - The Latin medal, offered by (he-'lac-ulty for the highest grade made on Latin for the entire year, was won by Nellie Dietzel with an average of 96.- Mattie Caldwell also made 96 but in drawing for the medal Nellie was the fortunate one. The five dollar gold piece, offered by Juo. T. Walker for the highest grade made on mathematics for the year, was won by Harold Thompson with an average of 96 1-6; Paul Erwin came next with 96; O'Bryan Horner next with 95 5-6; Nellie Dietzel aeit with 93 3 6. A Webster Dictionary given for the most distinctions (head-marks) was won by Evelyn Naylor, making 12. Carmen Parks also made 12 but in drawing Evelyn was the fortunate one. The medal offered by Judge Swiggart for the best declaimer was won by Fred Key in opinion of the judges Tuesday night; Joel Brevard came next and Eobt Chambers next. Tho medal offered by Dietzel Jewelry Co, for the best essay was won by Bid die Garrigan; Eubye Henderson next and Xato Henderson next.

The athletic modal, offered by Brans ford & Andrews, was won . by Grover Wilson. Paul Erwin and Frank Key deserve honorable mention. of that committee Lad expired by limit ation. Hods. Finis J. Garrett and D. J. Caldwell were both present at the meet ing, looking of . r their interests as the two announced candidates in the Ninth District Democratic primary election. Congressional Primary Election. The Democratic Congressional Ex ecutive Committee for the Ninth Con gressional District met in Union City last Saturday and issued a call for a primary election to be held on the 1st day of August, 1912, to nominate a candidate for Congress." The members of the committee were all present, ex cept Fred J. Caldwell, of Lake County, who was represented by proxy. The call included also the election of mem bers of the executive committee to serve for the ensuing two years. The quali fications fixed by the call provide that all known white Democrats who will pledge their support to the nominee of this primary, under tho law entitled to vote in the regular November, 1912, election, shall be entitled to vote in said primary election. The olliccrs judges and clerks of election are to be apportioned to the choosing of candidates equally. The committee is also called to meet in Union City August 10, 1912, to can vass the returns of the primary election, tho candidate receiving the highest number of votes to be declared the nominee, also the candidate for com mitteeman in each county receiving the highest number of votes to be declared elected. Each candidate for Congress must file application with the chairman on or by July 1, 1912, accompanied, if but two, by 1250 to defray expenses of elec tion. ' The ballots arc to be plain with names of all candidates for each county printed thereon. This committee is the one elected at the Congressional primary election two years ego, of which Geo. y. JSoyd is cl.ali ly.iu. " The old euiiiiiaUec, named t the State convention two years asro by the regulars, of which W. W. ii.iird is chairman, was here at the meeting and endeavored to Join in the proceed inf a" active iwnibcrs. ' 1 he Boyd commit tve dot lined but invited the llainl committee to 'be present as spectators. The Baird committee, if it had any standing at all, was clearly out of order, as the late convention in Nash ville fa'led to provide for the election of its suecc-i-OiS, and that fere the life Attracting Crowds. The Chicago Examiner of May 16, in speaking of Bohuniir Kryl and bi3 band's appearance at Riverview Expo sition, Chicago, said: "Bohumir Kryl's Military Band, stationed in the wooded grove before the new Casino Suburb, at tracts immense crowds at the afternoon and evening concerts in which his cornet solos are an important feature of the splendidly selected musical pro gram." Kryl, by the way, is a resident of Chicago. The Inter Ocean in com menting on this fact a year or so ago said: " That the music loving people of this city are proud of their fellow citizens is evident by the thousands who have attended his concert. The enthu siasm displayed by the great audiences that have demanded encore after encore stamps the engagement as a mpwroM one." On To Jackson. Mr. S, D. Woosley, 228 First street, Union City, Tenn.
