•< Prescott, Ark.
In compliance with Governor Mc
Rae’s proclamation setting aside the
week, Oct. ‘Jl» to Nov. 5th as public
school week, I call upon all teachers
and boards of directors in the county to
assist in the proper observance of the
week, the object of which is to deepen
the interest of the public in the welfare
of our public schools. Teachers an?
urged to arrange for a community
meeting one night during the week and
to arrange for a program for the same
The following is suggestive:
Community Singing
Two or three numbers by school
How our school should serve the j
community, by a local person.
How parents may help make a school
successful, by a mother.
The future of our school, by the
secretary or chairman of the school
Oportnnity schools, by the teacher.
Teachers may add to the above any
special features desired.
Preeminently the greatest problem
that eonfronts the nation and the State
as well as the loeal community, is the
question of the public schools. With
our ch ldren going to school one-third
less than the average child in America
it is indeed a problem of serious con
<-ern. Local communities have their
problems the discussion of which will
he both interesting and benefie'al.
Therefore, I call upon all school forces
to join hands in the observance of

j Local Team Wins From Nash
ville Eleven Last Friday
Score 28-13.
Lust Friday Loach McGill and his
Curly Wolves, accompanied by a crowd
of rooters journeyed to Nashville to
play the Nashville high school football
boys. The final score stood 128 to K>,
with Prescott on the heavy end.
Prescott's fans and supporters claim
to have never seen «ucb a poor show
ing of spotsmanship as was put up by
the Nashville men. They did all in
their power to discredit the local boys,
fa ling miserably, and Succeeded in
showing only their lack of real foot
ball spirit.
Graham, Griffith, Jones and Sage
played remarkable games Graham's
line plunges showing more pep than
usual, even for the hard playing cap
Griffith played a stellar game as
tackle, pounding the Nashville line
time and nga'n.
Jones made some remarkamble gains
around the ends. Jones is a good man
to have in the backfieki, steady, reliable
and a sure gainer.
Sage played hard, as usual. He
made long gains almost every try. Sage
made the hist touchdown ox the game,
when, with a minute to play, he inter
cepted a forward pass one yard behind
his goal line and raced the full length
of the field for a touchdown, dodging
every man on the Nashville team..
The boys go to Pine Bluff Saturday,
for out* of the hardest games of the
season. They need, and deserve the
support of everyone in Prescott.

That there is a revival of interest in

i fact (here have been above 8(100 enroll

and writing schools for adults were
common oceuraiiees during their young

There is plain justice in the
statement which condemns a
man who hoards his money as
an undersirable citizen. He
withholds it from circulation,
robs himself of its earning ca
pacity and stands before his
fellow men branded as a miser.
Instead of hiding money
away in disuse, it can be invest
ed with absolute safety in a
Time Deposit with the Bank of
Prescott, earning interest at the
rate of 4 per cent. Don’t Hoard

The revival meeting which has been
in progress at the Methodist Ohurch
in I’rescott for the past ten days will
Hose tonight (Thursday). The meet
ing has grown steadily in attend
ance and interest and much good has
doubtless been accomplished. Uev.
Roebuck, who has been doing all the
preaching for the meeting has made
a very line impression both as a man
and minister. He came to Prescott an
entire stranger to nearly all of our
people, but he will go away leaving a
host of friends among those who have
been strengthened and enr'ehed by his
ministry. Several members have been
received into the church by letter and
others are expected to join the church
before the meeting closes.
l am still selling pianos and all who
are due me will please call and pay.
