Lions Committee Booking Subscrip tions for Capital Stock. The meeting last Tuesday, was turned almost exclusively into a bus inesa session: Mr. Tittsworth made a general report on the operation of a building and loan organization He made some investigations at Ful ton last week. The organization was started there with a capital of $100 000 and has been increased several times since. At Mayfleld the income there is 114,000 a month. There is reason for a building and loan organization in Union City, and for such an organization a capital stock of $200,000 is recommended. Mem berships are confined to a limited amount of stock. For $1000 in stock a monthly payment of $6 is made, which at the end of nine years amounts to $648 and this entitles the member to the payment of $1000 in cash . Loans are made for building purposes, which are paid in to the as sociation in the shape of installments for a period of years. By that means hundreds of homes can be added to the city and the citizens can easily become home owners. Surely an as sociation is needed in Union City The committee heretofore appointed to investigate the matter was retain ed to make a campaign for organiza tion and subscriptions of several thousands of dollars were made be fore the meeting closed. A resolution indorsing and eulo gizing Mr. R.' R. Rose for establish ing livestock and trading days in Union City was passed unanimously, Mr. Rose is a man of indefatigable energy and enthusiasm and he is for Union City. He has undertaken and in a large measure succeeded already in making first Monday and third Saturday special days in Union City for general trading and shopping. He proposes to make these days red letter days in Union City and to make Union City one of the greatest trad ing centers in the State. He is heart and soul in the work and he is to be depended upon to deliver the goods. The Lions bank on Mr. Rose and the newspapers and business men are giving him fine' support. Rose and Union City will be heard from if they hold together, and there are no pres ent prospects of separation. Mr. Hugh Smith suggested the discussion of street lmprovmeent in Union City. The appointment of a committee of investigation was pro posed, and, according to some of the members of the Board of Aldermen present, this committee is not to in terfere with the work of the board but to coordinate with the board in developing some improvement plans. Dr. Turner appointed the committee as follows: Chas. Dietzel, H. M. Oliver, H. O. Vincent. A committee to assist Mr. Rose in publicity work was appointed as fol lows: W. F. Tate, J. W. Kerr, E. H, Marshall. , . W. G. Reynolds made a talk on the subject of livestock, emphasizing the fact that this is one of the most important industries in the State, and that livestock is a two-to-one in vestment for all corn and feed grow ers. Mr. Bob Fox, of Obion and Mr, Curry, ofTroy, were present and in vited to speak. Mr. Fox is interested in the Jeff Davis Highway and sug gested that W. G. Reynolds be ap pointed to represent the Lions at a meeting of the Jeff Davis Highway organization at Jackson, Miss, Mr. Reynolds was duly elected to this commission. -' School Term Closes. The Crittendon Grove School closed a seven-months session last Friday with graduation exercises. Eighth-grade pupils graduating were as follows: Lorena Lytton, Irene Zarricor, Willie Crittendon, Loyd Janes, Jessie Phillips. The principal of the school, Mr. J. L. Thompson, is assisted by Miss Zona Akin. Five pupils passed to the tenth grade and one to the eleventh. Mr. Thompson Is highly pleased with the work of the school and the patrons found also fine .progress in the school. Look! Look! Look! The Obion County Singing Con vention will be held on 22d and 23d of April, 1922, at Mount Manuel. Let's go. Everybody cordially in- In spite of the fact that twenty of the Endeavorers of the C. P. Church were at the convention at Newborn Sunday evening, those remaining at home rallied round old C. E. to the number of 51 and held a very inter esting and well attended meeting. Miss Louise Adams played an organ solo and 17 of the Endeavorers took part in the meeting in talk, reading or prayer. The church loyalty contest is in full swing. The Whites scored 195 points last Sunday evening and the Reds 179.' Are you loyal to your side, to your society and to your church? Rev. R. "L. Keathley, president of Bethel College, McKenzie, preached at the evening hour on the subject "The Open Gate." It was a coinci dence that the " pastor had an nounced the week before that his subject would be "The Open Gate," and Rev. Keathley knew nothing of this until he had finished his dis course. Mr. Henry Dillon, a former member of this church, but now of Nashville, Tenn., rendered two vocal solos. The C. E. Society of - the C. P. Church was represented at the New bern convention by twenty-three En deavorers, and they have all a greater knowledge and love for Christian En deavor. There were 54 Endeavorers from the Union City societies, and, all near the Union City banner which was hung on the wall of the conven tion church and wearing their Union City badge, they made the best rep resentation at the convention.' The banquet Saturday night was "howling success." The banquet hall was decorated in the C.E. colors, red and white, and the varied colored caps of the different delegations gave an effective air to the occasion. Levi Jordan, cheer leader for Union City, was right on the job, and it is cer tain that no other delegation sur passed Union City in songs and yells. The sunrise prayer -meeting Sun day morning was well attended and it was held late enough that those of the Union City Endeavorers who did not get to go down until Sunday morning, would not miss the first service of the day. In the consecration service Sunday evening, which was one of the best services of the entire - convention three young people volunteered as life work recruits. The officers for the coming year are a3 follors: President, Clark Williamson, New- bern, Tenn.; vice president, D. W, Perry, McKenzie, Tenn.; secretary, Miss Vieva Roper, Union City, Tenn. treasurer, Ewing Jjhnson, McKenzie, Tenn.; Quiet Hour superintendent Miss Mildred Stehr, Humboldt.Tenn. Tenth Legion superintendent, Miss Ruth Gladhill, Dyer, Tenn.; Insti tute superintendent, Miss Mattie Williamson, Newbern, Tenn.; Junior superintendent, Miss Minnie C. Dan iels, Paris, Tenn.; publicity super Intendent, Miss Imogene Jones, Union City, Tenn. CHRISTIAN CHURCH REVIVAL SERVICES Pastor Baker in Eole of Evangelist Stirs Audiences. ' - Revival services this week at the First Christian Church are unusual ly complete with the forces of evan gelistic appeal and inspiring music. Pastor Baker's fine efforts, devoted to the spiritual Interests of the church and comrrunity, are heard with a new significance. The min ister is wholly interested and de voted to his work, and his special gifts of speech and personality are indeed effective as an instrumentali ty for God and the church. The church and the people of Union City will be benefited in this work, and everyone should as often as possible attend the services, which are daily at 7:30 p.m. On Tuesday evening the Lions in a body attended the service, and the public and civic and religious organi zations as well are cordially welcomed.

THE AGOGAS WILL EXTEND Yrvr Dresden, Tenn., April 10. R. G Maloan, 68, a, lifelong citizen of Dres den and Weakley County, was found dead this afternoon at 2 o'clock in the Moran field, about 300 yards east of town. Mr. Maloan left his resl dence in town yesterday about one o'clock and walked out to Miss Lillie Bragg's residence one-half mile east of town and made the statement to her that he was not feeling well and that he believed he would go back home. He did not return home and when night came he still had not returned and the family decided he went out with some one in a car and some car trouble had delayed them . At mid night there was still no word from him and it was so unusual for him to go away from the house and not tell some of the family where he was going that a search was started, but no trace was found. This morning a general alarm was made and a large number of citizens began a thorough search and it was not until 2 o'clock this afternoon that his body was found. It was announced that he came to his death from heart failure. Mr. Maloan was a member of the Meth odist Church and was a member of the board of trustees of that church. Big Easter Trade Day. Shoppers from a great distance will take advantage of buying on this big day, which will be featured by special prices by all merchants, and at 10:30 a.m. an automobile parade will be formed on First street and a picture made at that hour. Shoppers are requested to buy early on this big day and avoid the rush in the afternoon. Remember that April 15 is THIRD SATURDAY. In Sweden, whether in school teaching or in ; the preparation of teachers, the alcohol question is con sidered as above all a social problem. This point of view is marked .in the program of instruction. In the schools the question is treated in three principal chapters. 1. The ac tion of alcohol upon the individual; 2. The effects of the use of alcohol upon families; 3. The effects of the abuse of alcohol upon society. For the preparation of teachers the prob lem is divided into three chapters: f.v The individual and social influ ence of alcohol; 2. The problem of alcohol in society. 3. The fight against the dangers of alcohol. In the seminaries, special chapters of the manual are gone through un der the direction of the professor, most often with appropriate demon strations of the teaching material The pupils are questioned by the master on the contents of the man ual. Trial lessons are given by the pupils in the classes of the school of application attached to the normal school. The pupils may also pursue their study by reading more exten sive works on the alcohol question proposed to them by their professor. In the finishing classes for mas ters, as well as in the general sup plementary classes for directors of associations for the young, for cler gymen, etc., the instruction is given in the form of lectures. In the teach ers' courses, the question of alcohol is treated as a social problem and one of national economy. In about 100 lectures given, ten of the most emi nent specialists are appointed as lec turers. In addition to the lectures there is also what is called the "sem inary method" in which the pupils have to present work; debates, re ports, literary criticism, lectures, etc. The aim is to encourage the partici pants iu independent activity. They must not be merely receptive. Ex aminations , passed before the lec turers may be organized but are not compulsory. The participants in the general supplementary classes have not such a thorough preliminary instruction as those in the teachers' classes However, these general classes are organized upon almost the same lines as the teachers' classes though on a smaller scale (about 75lectures.) In order to show that they have grasped the matters treated in the course the participants are expected to present a short report upon each lecture to the different lecturers.

The Commercial Dear Sirs: I no ticed in last week's paper that the people did not attend the mass meet ing that was held in Union City. Why not let the chairman of the Democratic Committee write each district member to select three of the best men in his district, mail their names back to the chairman, . and then let him set a time and notify these men to meet and write a plat form. ' I believe that would come nearer getting what the people want ed than any other way. A. L. BURRUS. Union City, R. F. D. No. 3. i "The farmers of Tennessee certain ly occupy a most unique and advan tageous position in the lamb indus try," said Robert S. Matheson, head sheep and lamb buyer for Swift & Company of Chicago, who recently visited the State to get some first hand data of the 1922 crop of lambs. Mr. Matheson has been head buyer in his department with Swift & Com pany for thirty years and is a lead ing authority In this country on the sheep industry. After making quite an extensive auto trip thru several Middle Ten nessee counties, Mr. Matheson said: I can't believe that Tennessee farm ers fully appreciate the big advantage they have in the lamb industry. If they thoroughly appreciated the unique and advantageous position they hold in the spring lamb busi ness, I feel quite sure the flocks would would be greatly increased. Tennessee spring lambs are ready at an exceedingly opportune time, they hit a spot in the market where the seller has all the advantage, just after the Western fed lambs have run out and before the Kentucky and Virginia lambs are ready for market, at a time when they meet with prac tically no competition. I believe I know the sheep and lamb business of this country pretty well, and some thing about their countries also, but I have never yet seen a more ideal section for profitable lamb produc tion. I would urge the farmers in this section to get into the sheep bus iness more extensively and raise more and better lambs. It costs no more to produce a good top lamb than it does p produce a scrubby one of second or third quality and every grower knows what a wide differ ence there is in the market value." Mr. Matheson predicts good prices for both lambs and wool this season. THE. UNIVERSAL CAR .Sixteen, or S f Sixty Coupe $595 F. O. B.
