FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 1920.
Judge S. R. Bratton went to Nash
ville last week, attended the Demo
cratic caucus and did little work In
the Interest of his candidacy for the
speakership'of the lower house. . He
met many friends and thinks he has

talked; good,, hard,. common sense, In
large chunks. Said he was a Demo

! V Cheap and Good.
Any one by the exercise of a little
care can get food as cheap now as it
was purchased six years ago.
Sugar is down .to 12 cents a pound,
flour is approaching 1 a sack, corn
meal is proportionately much cheap
er, rice is retailing at t cents a
pound. .
People should eat more rice. Rice
is a good substitute for both flour
and meat. Irish potatoes are very
. cheap, 3 cents a pound. The Irish
potato is a well-balanced ration.
Butter is sky high, so are eggs
and so is breakfast bacon.
Cut out sliced breakfast bacon and
buy it in slabs and you can get it for
20 cents a pound less. Ham is much
cheaper than breakfast bacon. Buy
ham and cut out breakfast bacon.
Buy oleomargarine instead of the
dairy butter. The superior brands
are one half as cheap as butter, are
purer and more cleanly made. Eat

lied technical experts with the Ger

for payment.
The French government is una!
terably opposed o the admission of
Germany to the league of nations at
this time, it was stated at the for
eign office to-day. Some "drastic ac,

was intimated.
The foreign office said that there
had been conversations with Great
Britain on the subject, and that Ihe
British, who had been Inclined to
favor German membership in the

French viewpoint.
The French hold that Germany
must prove her intention to fulfill
the terms of the treaty and live
peaceably with her neighbors before
seeking membership to the league,

Thanksgiving Proclamation.
It has been said that November 11
(Armistice Dry) should have been
declared a holiday. for our city, and I
heartily agreed with the spirit of
the suggestion, but knowing the con
ditions and depressing tendencies up
on all business and business people
of our city, and I did not feel that we
could afford to close at that time.
But as the one great day of thanks
giving is now close at hand I am go
ing to ask every business institution
and factory in our city to close for
the entire day and allow all em
ployees and business ' men of every
walk of life to fittingly observe this
day and request that you attend and
participate in any patriotic service
that may be held. 1
I therefore designate Thursday,
Nov. 25, 1920, a full holiday, and
would respectfully request that the
stores and business places be closed
Wednesday night and remain closed
until Friday morning, that every
ne may be privileged to cease the
ordinary avocations upon this
Thanksgiving day, remembering His
many blessings during the past year.
In witness whereof, I have aft xed
my hand and official seal this No

Red-Blooded Men and Women Are

WATCH YOUR BLOOD CONDITION
If Ton Look Pale, Feel Gloomy and

and Build Up
You See men and women who are
never sick. They work hard, look
robust, eat heartily and enjoy life.
They have plenty of rich, red blood.
That is why they are never ill.
People who try to get along with
weak, impoverished blood always
have a struggle. They go from one
rslckness to another. Children the
same way. '
If you keep your blood rich and red
you'll enjoy full vigor. Disease has
little chance to develop in healthy
blood. As soon as you feel run-down
take Pepto-Mangan for awhile. It
will feed your blood with the ingre
dients needed to create a good sup
ply of red corpuscles.
' Pepto-Mangan is sold in both liq
uid and tablet form. Take either
kind you prefer. They are alike in
medicinal value. . But be sure you

Easy for the Training School.
Another ' disappointment and an
other victory resulted from the
Grove's High School Football team
at the Training School Park last Fri
day when the U. C. T. S. boys rode
over the visitors by a score of 80-6.
At no time during the Bhort game
did Grove show up in class with the
Training School boys.
The playing of every member of
the team during the entire season is
commendable, and especially that of
Gibbs, Talley and Holt during this
game. The crowd was limited to a
small, number and as a result big
money was lost. This team is worthy
of the presence of every man and
woman at its games. .The character
of both sportsmanship and plays is
excelled by no high school in the
country.
The lads motor over to Martin Fri
day to clash with a very reputed
team, McFerrin. The game will be
called at 2:30 o'clock. Let every
interested person hero go over and
help us defend our distinguished
foot ball team. There will no doubt
be the biggest crowd to see this game
of any this year as there has always
been strong rivalry between the
schools. The last two foot ball games
between the schools were won by the
U. C. T. S. boys. Lot's go over. It
isn't too cold. Put on enough1 clothes
and be a sport once more. Don't
miss the Thanksgiving game.
'Letter From Union City Boy.
Prof. F. C. Aydelott,
Union City Training School,
Union City, Tenn. , '
Dear Boy: 1 i
Was just wondering how the old
U. C. T. S. was coming along in foot
ball this season and thought I would
drop you a few lines. Have been
reading of a few of the games but I
don't get to read about 'em all.
I went into Birmingham to see the
Sewance and Ala. game, also to see
the Vandy and Ala. game and I won
der if the Berryhill now playing half
back for Vandy is the same Berryhill
that was at McFerrin when I was
going to the Training School. Or per
haps it was McTyere he was playing
with, I cannot recall, at present,
which one it was. Anyway McGu
gan would have beat U. of Ala. if he
had started that kid instead of Neel-
ey. As usual, more side lines dope,
ha! ha! But sure enough, Mr. Ayde-
lot, that kid stood out in that crowd
like the Statue of Liberty in New
York harbor. He was speed, effi
ciency and sureness all in one.
But to get back to the subject
nearest our minds if not our hearts,
how is the old school? And also how
are athletics in general? Have the
kids as much pep as in the Honeycutt
and Rankin days? Does the old U.
C. T. S. spirit still live as it did the
day we "swan" Jackson a game of
football at Jackson. I am sure you
remember that game. I do too, and
will never forget it. Have a picture
of that team on the mantel at home
and there it- will stay.
Well, Prof., there is nothing too
good I can say about the U. C. T. S.,
and if ever I can do anything for you
or the school ask me and I will go
my limit. Tell the team to "give
'em Hail Columbia" for 60 minutes,
then rest, and talk about how it was
won. Hoping to hear from you real
soon and hoping that you may never
be defeated, I am as ever,
Your old pupil,
W. O. War moth,
Ensley, Ala.
