The Commercial, Union City, Tenn.
FRIDAY, JUNE 1.0, 1921.
Lo, '-we are about to unroll the his
torical scroll of the famous Union
City Training School class of 1921.
Although there are no Napoleons
nor Joans of Arc, yet there are some
almost as illustrious. For they are
possessed of the same elements of
greatness; they are heroes and hero
ines of the same fibre and fabric.
Ruby Allen, our valedictorian, has
won for herself this distinction by
studious effort and constant applica
tion. She is a young lady' of splendid
mind and strength of character. :
- Sophronia Allen, a close second,
and ou salutatorian, has kept up a
most interesting pace, and is a most
interesting young lady. She is strong
but gentle. Watch her in the years
to come.
We have found John Brown
Buchanan to be a young man of
quiet, modest demeanor, with a basis
of sterling worth and Integrity. He
well bears acquaintance.
Chester Caldwell, the class orator,
has all these years charmed his hear
er3 with his matchless oratory. In
his command of language, and clean
cut classic diction, we can but recall
' that eminent scholar, the Honorable
Woodrow Wilson.
. When the fires of eloquence burn
low, and in his calm, natural state
he bears a marked resemblance to
that Tamous actor, "Fatty" Arbuckle
O, Chester, thou art truty great, and
of infinite variety. '
Marie Caldwell, our class prophet
ess, has seen visions and dreamed
dreams; and she is not without honor,
even in her own country. She is not
only a prophetess, for she wears the
laurels of victory like a queen. Her
sublime confidence in future events
but reflects her lofty nature, and the
conceptions of a brilliant mind.
' Lois Curlin is small in stature on
ly, ybut otherwise she is4 mighty in
word and .deed. ' 'Tis said by some
that she wields the scepter of Lore
like a goddess. If she be a goddess,
'tis of Justice for she is .both true
and Just. .
Robert Fry is a gentleman by
birth, and a scholar by nature. In
the clean composite of his make-up,
truth and honor intermingle and pre
vail, unhindered and unmolested. He
is an excellent young gentleman.
Irene Harris is also small in Bize,
but is multum in parvo.. She has
made for herself a host of friends,
who wish for her a useful and most
successful life. '
Floy Kirby is a young lady of
pleasing manners and charming per
sonality. She is genuine and sincere,
and her friendship is much to be
coveted. May the king who wins her
hand be worthy of the queen.
Robbie Latta is a fine student, and
justly merits the esteem of the en
tire student body. In character, she
is the synonym - for excellence. In
physique and bearing she is stately,
imposing and irresistible Hear me,
O, Jcwett! Believest thou me?
Jame3 Massey is tall and wiry, has
always been interested in athletics,
and well has played- his part. James
has the "pep" and "ginger."
Gaynell McCord has easily estab
lished her individuality, and is pos
Bessed of a grace and charm, peculiar
to youth and splendid mentality. In
the student body, she occupies a po
sition and relation of prominence and
excellence. .
Claire May Mott has been with us
through all the years, and with ad
miration and tenacious pride has
reached the top, au honor to herself,
to her class, and to the school. Honor
to whom honor is due.
Louise Payne is noted for her
splendid, work in the society, and her
readings' have made her famous.
Were we permitted to delve into the
future, we would dare to prophesy.
Louise and Docia Saunders have
been weighed ' in the balances, and
found not wanting. They are loyal,
faithful and studious. Their true
worth has long been established.
Mary Kate Stalcup is noted for her
stability and purity of character, and
Bhe Is esteemed by all. As an actress,
she has displayed wonderful histrion
ic talent in "Every Youth." Though
of noble birth herself, yet. she is not
related by blood to the Earl of Bruer
dom, as is generally believed. ' . '
Wallace Stone, the president of our
class, well deserves and merits the
honor conferred upon him. He is
genial, most studious, and a general
favorite. Wallace Stone, good, bet
ter, beet.
The name of Charles S. Talley wjll
go down "In history as an athlete.
Quick in thought and action, he led .
our football boys to victory, and was
the chief inspiration of the baseball
team. Charles S. Talley always got
Into the game and then "some."
Earl Bruer is a high-class young
fellow, without spot and without
blemish. He is both a student and
an athlete. He has high and lofty ,
aspirations. - As an Adonis, he is as
true as the needle to the pole in
fact, not half has yet been told.
Oran Thornton ha3 strictly obeyed
the injunction of Shakespeare, "Give
every man thy ear, but few thy
voice." And yet, deep waters "often
flow with a gentle ripple, and silence
is the companion of wisdom. To Oran
Thornton, falsity is an alien-i and
pulses a heart of purest gold.-
The last on our roll is that splen
did . young man, Jewett Wheeler
the Chesterfield and prince charming
and charmed of our class. Manly
and genial, he bears his honors easl
The past history of the Training
School is all that could be desired
Many, many of her students have
achieved , distinction and success in
life many, 'too numerous to men
tion, unheralded but with constant
purpose, have played, are playing,
vital and efficient role in the drama
of life.
In the past World's War, our serv
ice flag bore eloquent tribute to the
U. C. T. S. Four and forty of our
boys entered the service of their
country, and to their country com
mitted their talents, their energies,
and their lives.. Tbey were all he
roes, and as such we honor them
and each of themv for they have hon
ored and still honor us. Of this num
ber, one was a Major General, one is
a Major and another is a Captain in
the United States Army...
But listen! I hear the bugle blast
Call the roll! The heroes answer
Here! Here! Here! And then I hear
thl name of - William Marshall
Wright, i No answer comes! The si
lent dead speak but in mute appeal
And then I hear a voice that thrills
my soul!- It is the voice of sweet,
sunny Italy! "Beneath our, sacred
sod lies William Marshall Wright
Each day the warm radiance of an
Italian sun basks o'er his honored
grave. Each night the stars vie as
proud sentineb o'er this hallowed
mound. He is our irienk our com
rade our brother.". .
And then I hear the name of Mil
ton Talley! No answer comes! The
silent dead see not, neither do they
hear! But I hear Ihe voice of bonnie
Scotland, as she says: "America, the
cowardly fiends of hell, under cover
of the sea, have slainthy son. The
sea, in her wrath, and the winds, in
their fury, revolted, and cast thy
dead on a friendly shore. Tenderly,
lovingly and in sorrow, we buried
him on Scotland's soil. Thus hon
pred, we gave him back to you." And
to-day, Milton Talley sleeps in the
land of the brave and true.
And then, the name of Chester
Holloman i3 called but he sleeps the
sleep that knows no waking never
again will he answer the - call to

Cofum is called. The Btill hush of
death answers, "Not here- he died at
Camp Mills, in New York." And yet
he lives for truth was the Jewel of

Those who are actively engaged
carrying forward the work at the J
cemeteries have undertaken it for i
1921 with renewed courage and zeal
because of the encouraging words
spoken of the same, and of the co
operation of a larger number of the
people who have interests there.
From the beginning It has been
the purpose and determination of the
Cemetery . Association and the City
Board to each year leave the stamp
of improvement and beauty on the
entire grounds. This can be done
rapidly only by 'the prompt and
heart payment of the annual dues,
$2.00 per lot. 4 ; -
No lot owner can regret more than
does the association when there is
seeming neglect or a mistake made.
We use the word seeming advisedly.
While this is all a labor of love
upon our part it is also a business en
terprise which we strive to conduct
equitably. Therefore we greatly ap
preciate the same charity and rea
sonableness that you ask for yourself
from the public in whatever business
or work you carry on in our midst.
The entrance to the City Cemetery,
for which a fund was started three
years ago, will be put up this year.
On' account of the high cost of ma
terlala and labor it was postponed.
The money already contributed is in
the bank bearing interest. Those who
have promised a subscription will be
called upon soon, and we trust there
are others who will . find it in their
hearts to contribute liberally to this
fund to the end that we shall be able
to finish this improvement at once.
Mrs. John R. George is treasurer of
this special fund..
Annual dues and air other money
for improvement is . collected by
faithful committeemen and turned
monthly into -.the treasury of the
Cemetery Association, the officers of
which for 1921 are: Mrs. J. A: Prie-

. Anti-Mosquito Campaign.
Editor The Commercial. ,
Dear Sir: The people of Union
City should know the character and
the progress of the malarial control
campaign, first because the city is
paying one-half the cost of the work,
and secondly because their individ
ual co-operation is required to make
the campaign a 100 percent success.,
On May 19 the Board of Mayor and
Aldermen 4 appropriated $1200, and
the State Board of Health an equal
amount, for carrying out a program
of malarial control by anti-mosqui
to measures, under the supervision of
the U. S. Public Health Service. At
the same time an ordinance was en
acted making the maintenance of
any collection of water in which mos
quitoes may breed .punishable by fine.
Active work was begun "a week
later, when Mr. W. E. Eason was ap
pointed inspector in charge' of the
work here. An oiler, equipped with
gripsack spray pump, was set to
spraying a light film of coal oil on
all standing water and along the
edges of running streams. This film
is renewed weekly in order to pre
vent the hatching out of the mosqui
toes from, the egg, this cycle occur
ring in eight or nine days in summer
weather. The oil film destroys the
mosquito larva, or wiggletails, by di
rect poisoning and by shutting off
their air supply thus causing suffo
In addition to the oiling, a ditch
ing gang has been at work draining
the old creek west of town. Before
draining this was a scries of stagnant
pools breeding thousands of mala
ria carrying mosquitoes, which would
have made the malaria problem in
Union City more serious than ever
before. It is now entirely dry. i The
drainage canal near the old creek bed
has been channeled to release .the
large pools in which mosquitoes were
breeding profusely in the green scum
along the edges. This work is being
continued on the lateral canal near
est town. These canals will require
proper maintenance every year to
avoid the pooling that produces mos
quito breeding.
The drainage system in the- east
part of town will be improved, and
the 'own branch will be cleaned out
thoroughly in the next few weeks.
Many ponds will be drained, buf
wjiere ponds are needed to water

vegetation and debris and stocked
with top water minnows which ef
fectually destroy mosquito wiggle
tails. A special pond has been set
aside as a hatchery for collecting and
breeding these minnows so that they
may be available for this work. Par
ticular caution is urged upon fisher
men not to use theso valuable little

foctively preventing the breeding of
malaria carrying mosquitoes, but to
keep down common house mosquitoes
requires the co-operation of every
householder. Tin cans, old barrels,
old bottles and tubs on the premises
should be hauled away to a safe dis
tance.. All necessary barrels, buck
ets, pot and other containers should
be kept turned over when not in use
so as not to" collect rain water. Old
wells and cisterns should be filled
up with dirt or ashe3, or covered with
an airtight cement cover. Yard hy
drants should be kept shut off when
not in use, and leaky faucets re
paired, to prevent collection of water.
Small drain ditches should be kept
clean and pools under the house or
in the yards should be cleaned or re
paired to avoid holding water. All
these places will breed mosquitoes
prollfically unless attended to. Un
til these conditions-can be remedfod
a little coal oil spread on the surface
of the water each week will prevent
mosquito breeding.
Let us all get together and rid
Union City of mosquitoes and mala
ria. A good reputation once estab
lished will stick.
