Marshall & Balrd, Union City, Tenn. Entered at the post office at Union City, Ten nessee, as second-class mail matter. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 26. 1920. Allows Our Claim. It is your country editor' who will find a crumb of ccmfort it there is one. After noting briefly some of the casualties of the recent cyclones es pecially those in Tennessee the Un ion City Commercial philosophizes thusly: . "Abe Martin says you always know where to find Debbs. And this line is added to notify the world of our permanent location Obion County. The returns tell cf no better place. The Toters hero are the best, come a little nearer doing it right. We hare less, disgruntled, flat-headed, frog footed, rattle-brained, wart-disfigured, pot-bellied cussedness than any county in Tennessee. Read the rec ord. Hero it is the official count: Cox, 4,547; Harding, 1,307. Roberts, 4,389; Taylor, 1,283." The Commercial is right. The fig ures above tell the story. Obion County is a good place to lire. Let the record of her work on. Nov. 2 be spread abroad over Tennessee that other counties may study and learn to imitate her example. We tip our Stetson to Obion County and bid her go up head. Chattanooga News. A Good Man. ' . The Trenton Herald-Democrat Is interested in the fortunes of the Democratic party in Tennessee and suggests a new leadership in order to revive the confidence of Democratic voters. The suggestion carries with it the name- of a native citizen of Gibson County, Hon. Hillsman Tay lor, who is in all probability equal to the occasion and responsibility. Mr. Taylor i3 a lawyer, a former member of the Tennessee General Assembly and speaker of the lower branch of that body. . He has the qualities of leadership and personal character, the cpirit of patriotism and true cit izenship, and should ho become im pressed that his services to the party and the groat State of Tennessee might be useful, we do not hesitate to indorse the good Judgment of the Herald-Democrat. But with, implicit confidence in Mr. Taylor and his friends, we do not accede to , the suggestion that the vanquished Democratic, leaders have been been discredited. On the contrary we have an abiding faith in the efforts of Governor Roberts to en throne economy and business integri ty In the administration of Tennes see government. We believe that tnese enons, mo perau-po cruuwij new up in some particulars, win in a per fected system prevail and finally re ceive the sanction of the people of Tennessee. We don't believe men have ever been more relentlessly persecuted than Governor Roberts. We believe his hands, his hoart and his life are clean! and that he was moved by un selfish) motives.' We believe that he was assaulted by men who either knew they were making false state ments or wilfully circulated un founded reports. We believo in Democracy, but there w'll be no Democracy which is not honorable, open and fair. Governor Roberts was moved by a sense of duty and his political life was sacrificed. We trust another may take his place who has a con science to guide, and do not hesitate to accept Mr. Taylor's leadership. i Mrs. T. P. Palmer has returned from a visit to relatives and friends in Memphis, Sledge, Miss., Cotton Plant, Hebcr Springs and Little Rpck, Ark. At the latter place she attended the wedding of her son, Ensign K. W. Palmer, which appears in another place In tho paper. Our good friend is now at home in Rives and we opine will be heard from reg ularly in tho columns of the paper. Whatever The Commercial has been there has never been a time when it could boast of a more wholesome in fluence nor a truer ideal in local Journalism than that of its Rives correspondent. Ciimo drives are raging in almost every city in tho United States. One thousand arrests were made in Chi cago Saturday and Sunday. Maybe someone thinks Governor Roberta made a mistake in having the Legis lature pass a State police law. : They may have another thought coming before this thing is over. It looks now like Tennessee is to be congrat ulated in having this law. Obion County is fortunato in having loca ted in Union City one of the com panies of the State guard (or police), -and. these men will be ready when the crime drive begins here. Col. Ferd Thomasson, of St. Pe tersburg, Fla., was mingling with Union City friends the first of the week. He "had beenon a business trip west and stopped here for a short visit, He is president of a mil- ! AnUa-r tionlr af Rr Ptrhiiri 11UU UUJtUI - " - w and Js prospering. Ho looks it, too; well and hearty. Friends here were glad to see him. . ' . EZMEDY FOE DIYOECE, Knoxville, Nov. 19. "Tennessee's marriage laws should be changed," declared Dr. Theodore W. Glocker, professor of economics and sociology at the University of Tennessee, in an address to the Southern Association of College Women here. "If we are to remedy the divorce laws, it seems to me that better attack the mar riage laws first," he said. "In Ten nessee a girl of twelve can be legally married. A boy of fourteen can be legally married. The ages should be at least sixteen for the girl and eigh teen for the boy. Eighteen is the age of consent for both parents. Many marriages,' that later end -in tho divorce courts, are too hasty. "I am in favor of the old English custom of having the names bup- lished at least five days before the ceremony so that the parents can be given a chance to know of the Inten tions of their children, in case they do not know of it, "and so that peo ple who have any objection to the marriage may have time in whfch to say so. In Tennessee it is possible for only one of the contracting par ties to secure the license. Both par ties should be. made to appear for the license. Marriage of persona who are venercally diseased should be re stricted by law. A few S'ates have passed such laws, but they have met with only moderate success. If they are to be successful, a county physi cian would have to be employed, as it has been found that it is a very easy matter to secure a doctor's cer tificate permitting marriage." Dr. Glocker also spoke of con structive legislation for the protec tion of illegitimate children, Baying that the present laws were designed more for the protection of the State than that of the children. U. S. Amy News. Under the hurry-up telegraphic orders sent out by tho War Depart ment on November 9, all recruits who now enlist in the Army for a course in farming will bo sent to the Vocational School of Agriculture at Camp Travis, Texas, unless the sol dier desires otherwise. The famous Second Division, affectionately known aa the "Indian Heads," which saved Paris by stopping the Hun along the Paris-Metz road at Belleau Wood and Vaux, is on duty there. The telegrams directed that this division bo recruited to full strength immediately. The agricultural school main tained by the Second Division are a- mong the best-equipped in the army Courses are provided in horticulture, agronomy, dairying and animal hus bandry, and a fine irrigated farm has been bought, where soldier students may be turned into scientific farmers. The course in horticulture includes theoretical and practical work in the growth of fruits, flowers and orna mental ohrubbery. In agronomy the student takes up tho study of soils, with special reference to irrigating agriculture. Great artesian wells supply the water necessary. Instruction in dairy husbandry in cludes types and breeds of dairy cat tle. Practical work is given in Judg ing stock, and visits are made by the soldiers to famous cattle farms near by. The school farm also provides practical work In animal husbandry. To the average farmer it may seem strange that Uncle Sam's soldiers are engaged in making the desert bloom. But this is exactly what they are do ing. Adjacent to the great military reservation is a 400-acre farm, under the supervision of George G. Snow, who come3 from Mississippi Agricul tural and Mechanical College, where he taught for twelve years. Assist ing Mr. Snow is Joel I. McGregor, former dairy specialist for the Hous ton Chamber of Commerce, in charge of the department of animal husban dry. Quoting Major General P. C. Har ris, the Adjutant General of the Ar my: "The aim of the school 13 to give each soldier in the army as thorough and practical an education as he is willing to accept; to give' him In struction in 'any subject that he de sires to take; and so to arrange the courses and hours of instruction that his military duties will not be slighted."

The Matinee Music Club met Sat urday afternoon with Mis3 Pauline Barney, splendid attendance symbol izing the club interest. Mrs. Dean Keiser led the lesson, a continued study 'of the musical atmosphere of the Scandinavian country. Prominent among the list of those who created this atmocphere stands the name of the Norwegian violinist, Ole Bull. A man of patriotism, who gave to the world, through the strings of his violin a message of the Norse life a life rich In noble ideals and sesthetic understanding. Longfellow's description of the "Norse Ole" in "Tales of a Wayside Inn" ' "The angel with the violin Who lived in that ideal world Whose language is not speech, but song; Around him evermore the throng Of elves and sprites, their dances whirled, The Stromkarl sang, the cataract hurled It3 headlong waters from the height and when he played the atmosphere Was filled with magic, and the ear, Caught echoes from-the Harp of Gold." is an American appreciation of, and a tribute to the great master.
