I am pleased to announce to
the young men and women of
Woodruff County that I am

University of Arkansas at
Fayetteville. These appoint
ments entitle the holder to free
tuition for four years.
The University is a state sup
ported institution, maintained
by the tax payers of Arkansas
for the benefit of the young
people of the state. In addition
to the usual literary and clas
sical courses offered in colleges
it comprises, as a part of its
organization, the State Col

of these courses are in great
demand as teachers and as
county agents in canning club
and home economics work, and
at good salaries.
For admission to the Univer
sity as an unconditional stu
dent, one must be a high school
graduate. Those who do not
live in towns having high
schools may obtain appoint

ty Training High School,
where they may prepare them
selves for the freshman class.
Complete information about
the University may be obtain
ed by addressing the Registrar
of the University of Arkansas
at Fayetteville.
E. M. CARL-LEE, Co. Judge.
Blue and Discouraged?
There are many men and women in this town whom life
apparently has treated unkindly. Without true friends they
struggle against odds.
Yet the church around the corner is full of men and women
anxious to help.
h Christianity Means Helpfulness
Meet these church people half way. Give them an opportu
nity to be your friends. “Come unto me and I will give you
rest.” Thus directed the founder of Christianity. His promise
stands today. Test it. Crosses which arise in business, in school,
in the home are more easily borne if one has accepted the
assurance that Jesus Christ is ever ready to help.

McCRORY IS WINNER
OVER GREGORY TEAM
The McCrory Base Ball Club
went to Gregory yesterday,
Thursday, afternoon where
they defeated the Gregory nine
five to four.
For eight long innings it
looked as if our boys would not
cross the home plate, but they
got busy in the ninth and ran
in five scores, just one more
than the opposing team made
during the first inning.
Gregory almost took the
game in the ninth. There
were two outs and the bases
full and B. Matkins faced the
McCrory hurler hoping to send
the ball far into the field and
thereby bring in the winning
scores. Meadows laid; down
a nice one which Matkins met
! with his stick sending the ball
over a building in deep left
center for what everyone
thought was a homer and which
woul$ have added four scores
to the four Gregory had made
in the first inning, but Wilson
the McCrory centerfielder, got
under the horsehide by making
a long run and to the happy
j surprise of his mates and the
displeasure of the Gregory
team and their crowd of en
1 thusiastic fans, the lad came
marching in with the ball in
his hand. Following is the line
up and score by innings:
