N. RUDDLE, Clerk. J. W. Burner, Sol. for Complt. This Nov. 18, 1920. Interesting Debate. The Wilaonlan and Allen literary societies appreciate tho deep interest and enthusiasm displayed last Fri day night over the debate, "Resolved, that the commission form of govern ment would be better for Union City than the council mayor system." Quite a number of the citizens of the town were presenf including the mayor, board of aldemen and board of education. However, there were not as many present as we had an ticipated, in view of the fact that the question was one which pertained to the progress of our own home town. The debater, for tho affirmative side were Louise Spradlin and Kath leen. Arnold, those for the negative side, Curtis Ruddle and Gladys Wheeler. Point3 were presented on both sides which showed a careful study of the character of Union City's government. The Judges were, Prof. Cravens, of Rives, Mr. J. L. Fry and Mrs. J. C. McRee, of this city. After careful and seriou3 consideration, a decision was reached in favor of the affirma tive. V We hope the intense interest and the effects shown during the debate will not end here, but will work to ward the progress of Union City, as was the intention. Evangelistic Services. The revival at the Cumberland Presbyterian Church continues with Increasing interest from day to day. Union City has never heard more soul-stlrringr messages and purer gos pel truths than those delivered by Mrs. Morris. She is a strong expo nent of the faith delivered to our fathers and condemns in plainest terms them who profess Christ and serve the devil. The influence of this good woman will doubtless live long in our town and be the means of making many beter. The mooting will continue at least until Sunday night. Peddler Robbed. At a point between Obion and Troy Tuesday night, George Crier, a peddler, living in the vicinity of Troy, was hem up and robbed of 1240.00. He said two heavily mask ed men did the job.
