CI STER SERVICE AT THE CITY CHURCHES Pine Weather Large Attendance Preaching and Song Services. Special Eastet services were held at the various churches ,in Union City last Sunday mor,ning.

On Sun day evening singers from the various churches of the city were heard in a special Easter cantata, "Cross and Crown." -; . . .' . We are reproducing the program, which was in printed form. An ex ceptionally large audience was pres ent, filling the main auditorium and a large portion of the annex. , Mrs. Geo. Stone directed with Miss Beulah Allen at the organ. The singers were suitably cast and the entire arrange ment gave the finest results.! The entire score was rendered without any apparent difficulty and with fine interpretation. The audience was deeply Interested and impressed with the recital. - ' Apropos of this service The Com mercial would like to suggest that it was very inspiring and that' we miglit on another Easter get a larger number .of voices; so that the princi pals might be aided with a large chorus of voices, say perhaps fifty in number. The Methodist Church' is a large one and adapted to this kind of service. The evening -Easter song services might be continued at that place with a temporary platform ex tension xur -mw uueuiur auu cuuic body of singers. , ; ' , The effort and trouble mi tax some of the musicians"' V the church-going people ai., who 'do not attend church regu . would certainly enjoy an oocasinu 'of this character.

W. H. - Iiona Club. The Lions Club had a lively meet ing last Tuesday and welcomed a number of distinguished visitors.' Senator K, D. McKellar, who was passing thru the city, was a gnost and talked in a, very interesting vcy of the great war debt,, amounting to twenty-three " billions of , dollars, eleven - billion of which la due from foreign countries. He spoke of the s insidious propaganda going over the country to cancel tnese debts, and how wo were taxed be- cjiuse of these countries not meeting the Interest on tho loans that we made them. ' He also said that the Muscle Shoals project would finally, in, his opinion, be turned over to Mr. Ford. ?,". Mr. Shade Wilson, the popular sales manager, outlined somo plans to make Union City better, and spoke cf the enthusiasm that apparent pros perity brings and urged that an ef fort be made to place our local news papers in every heme in the county, This, he thinks, is one of the best things that cancomo to help the merchants. Another visitor, Dr. J. B. Adker son, made a very delightful club talk REELFOOT LAKE LEVEE STIRS MORE TROUBLE THIRD SATURDAY RIGGER AND BETTER ALL THE Growing Interest in Union City Trade Days Events. Another very large crowd came to Union City last Saturday to take ad vantage of the inducements offered by merchants and others on this par ticular occasion. Really we believe that the institution of these trade days has been td stimulate confidence and to encourage our people in the hope and realization of better times. In fact it looks like better times al ready. It does so, indeed, if the pres ent movements of the people are to be compared with those of a few months back. Last Saturday people from various portions of the eounty were here, comprising a total of thousands in number and everyone seemed to be in fine humor and ready to produce a little cash where that cash could be utilized profitably. Picture sketches were made 'of the street crowds by Photographer Sabin and will soon be ready for reproduc tion . in the papers. The Nashville Tennessean and The Commercial' Ap peal, always looking ahead, respond ed willingly with publicity regard ing one of the former trado days in Union City, with accompanying half tone picture. , All of these progressive movements are directed by the able management of Mr. R. R. Rooe, who has so far been highly successful in the work. On next Saturday, April 22, the most important event of tho entire series- of ti'ade dates will take place. On that occasion a Ford tourUg car will be given,away, and this has been made possible by the business men of Union City. Very likely tho largest crowd of the season will be here for that event. Everyone will be .cor dially welcome. omo and be with us. Special Service. ; There will be a special service at the Methodist Church next Sunday morning, April 23, for the children and young people. While it is espe cially .for them, no one is excluded, and we feel that it 'will be Just as good for one as another. The sermon will be one for the eye more than for the ear. Every point will be dis played on the platform. We hope all the young people will come to Sun day school prepared to stay through the service. We will be glad to have anyone and everyone with us that duty does not call, elsewhere. We give this, feeling that n sometimes through the eye is a better way to reach the child than ' through the ear. ' An invitation ia extended to the public. All Present. 1 Listen! All present! One hundred percont attendance! Doesn't it sound good? Every AGOG A was in his place last Sunday in the Agoga Class of the Baptist Sunday School, and we had others present, too. But we want more new members and we still ex tend the invitation to all young men to Join the AGOGA Class. Get in line with a wide- awake Sunday School class. The Agogas will cordially welcome YOU. . GET ANOTHER MAN THAT'S AGOGA. , Proposition to Dynamite Has a Back V fire Movement. Acting upon alleged grounds that the spillway at Reelf oot Lake is forc ing backwaters on Kentucky and Tennessee farms at the upper end of the lake, Mayor Sway ne, of Hickman, Capt." Claude Walker and others, a large party altogether, met Judge Bratton, County Road Supervisor Buchanan, State Engineer McEwen and the Civil Engineer of the Jeff Davi3 Highway, from this city, to hold a conference relative to a prop osition to dynamite the levee and re lieve these Kentucky and Tennessee farmers. ; The committee, however, found the conditions there to be entirely differ ent from what -they had expected. The water in the lake is five feet be low the top of the levee; on the oth er side of the levee, where tho water is backed from the Mississippi River, which is west of the spillway, the water is within three feet "of the top of the levee, or two feet higher than it is on the lake side. Therefore in dynamiting the levee, the reverse effect would be to flll the lake with river water and make the overflow on the farms in Kentucky and Ten nessee much greater than it Is. Judge Bratton told tho Hickman people to try dynamiting and, see what the re sult would be. ' They saw the point and agreed that it would be disastrous to dynamite. ' So far a3 this confer ence is concerned there was no effort to dynamite the levee. Tho lake levee is therefore giving protection to'the Kentucky and Ten nessee farms instead of damaging them with1 backwater. It is protecting ing them from the backwaters of the river. LAMPS AND LIGHTS. A candle gives a light. This light is a great help in the time of total darkness. The amount of light de pends upon the candle-power of the lamp. If one wishes to increase his light, a lamp of larger candle-power must be used. The AGOGA Class of the Baptist Sunday School is, like the candle, shedding its- light in the Baptist Church and in Union City, The class can be made a great LAMP for throwing out the light of Chris tian faith and thereby become one of the shining lights of the city. But it must have the help of all men over twenty years old who are not in other Sunday schools. Won't yoti Join the class? Wo need your help. Visit the AGOGA CLASS next Sunday and you will be greatly repaid. THE AGOGAS WILL WELCOME YOU GLADLY. "Hiawatha," an Operetta. The commencement exercises of theUnion'City Public Schools (white) began here last Friday night with the presentation of "Hiawatha," an operetta, by the Fourth and Fifth grades yof Central School. The play was given before c, crowded house in the auditorium of the Senior High School. The play was good and ev eryone took his part well. All who were not present missed something which those who raw it will not for get. A nominal sum of fifteen cents was charged and this money will be used toward defraying some of the expenses incurred in Improving the swimming pool. This is a badly need ed improvement and we hope it can soon be made. The operetta, "On ' Midsummer's Day," will be given by the First, Sec ond, Third and Fourth Grades of Central School in the High School auditorium Friday night, April 21. : McAdoo in 1924. Washington, April 16. Former President Wilson's letter repudiating the message given to the , New York democratic dinner ; by Joseph P. Tumulty and the consequent break between Mr. Wilson and his long time secretary is regarded here by some Democratic leaders as certain indication that William G. McAdoo is planning to become a candidate for the Democratic Presidential nomina tion in 1924. Mr. Wilson's repudiation' of the message to the Jefferson Day banquet was actuated, in the opinion of lead ing Democrats, not because of the wording of the message delivered by Mr. Tumulty as coming from Wil son, but because of the impression created that it was an indorsement for the renomination of James M. Cox. Mr. Wilson, his friends say, is not for Cox for another nomination and does lean favorably toward the nom ination of his son-in-law and former Secretary of the Treasury who was runner up to Cox at San Francisco In 1920. Party leaders insist that McAdoo is quietly maneuvering for the nomination. N. C.& ST. L. RAILROAD PARK AND CHILDREN'S PLAYGROUND Union City District Conference.

PASTURES ESSENTIAL One essential to successful hog raising is pasturage, say specialists of the Division of 'Extension, Uni versity of Tennessee. Alfalfa, red clover, crimson clover, rape, rye and oats are most valuable.' Japan clo ver, soy beans or cowpeas may be pre pared for summer grazing. Some feeds develop the bone in growing pigs, others develop muscle and others make them fat. A mix ture of different feed products that will do all of these things in the de sired proportion is called a "balanced ration." Young growing stock, or brood sows with suckling pigs, need a large amount of bone and muscle building, material, while meat hogs weighing more than 75 pounds need a fattening ration. To mix 100 pounds of a balanced ration for a sow and her litter, use either of the following: Ration 1: Corn,, 45 pounds; shorts, 35 pounds; oats, 20 pounds. Ration 2: Barley, 25 pounds; pea nut meal, 15 pounds. Ration 3: Corn, 60 pounds; barley, 30 pounds; tankage, 10 pounds. Ration 4: Corn 60 pounds; shorts, 30 pounds; tankage, 10 pounds. One third of a feed of corn and two thirds of a feed of buttermilk or skimmilk will make a balanced ration. The above rations are also suitable for young growing animals that will be used for breeding pur poses. Hogs that are not on pasture should be fed all they will clean up well 'twice a day. The better the pasture, the less will be necessary. Hogs need plenty of clean water at all times. The rations suggested above will be suitable 'for pork pigs until they weigh 70 or 80 pounds. Fattening pigs may then be fed almost a -full ration of corn with a daily amount of either one of the following: to pound tankage; to 1 pound of soy beans; 1 to 1 pounds cowpeas; or 3 to 4 quarts of skimmilk or but termilk. - Removal Notice.
