October 3rd Election Draws Near
With, Two Tickets in Eield
Lest We Forget.
It is expected that the state, dis
trict and county elections this year,
which will he held on October 3rd,
will create more interest than com
mon. There appears to be no Socialist
state or county ticket. hile it is
not known whether the tribe is ex
tinct, have joined hands with the Re
publicans, or are merely inactive, it
is not believed that they will pass up
an opportunity to vote. Anyway the
Republicans are out in full blast,
especially the postoffice division of
the party, and w© note from the state
press that the voting section is busy
picking cotton. Be that as it may, the
county Republicans are said to have
hopes. The hope may be founded up
on the Democrats forgetting about the
election and letting it go by default.
Just the same there is going to be an
election and somebody is going to be
elected, and w0 shall see what we
shall see.

Rev. Gus Freeman
Delivered K. K. K. Lecture
Rev. W. A. Freeman of Prescott, ac
cording to previous announcement, de- j
livered a lecture in front of the court
house Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock.
Seats had been placed cn the lawn and
a great crowd of perhaps a thousand
people filled them and the grounds and
even the cars on the outside. A great
number of people were here from sur- !
rounding country and many from as 1
far away as Foreman. The subject
was as announced, “shall we down the ;
Ku Klux Klan?” The speaker cham
pioned the order and principles upon
which it stands in the very strongest |
of terms. The crowd showed favor
able interest by the attendance and
eager attention throughout the long
'discourse. He covered the main fea
tures and principles, purposes, etc.,
very much along the same lines fa
miliar to most of those who heard him,
but naturally from a different angle.
He was eloquent and forceful in pre
senting his convincing arguments. He
explained that the klan's membership
was made up of native born protestant
Americans. They were not fighting
any race, nor attempting to take from
anyone their inherent rights under the
constitution. They were not trying
to supercede the lav/, but to stand be
hind and uphold the law in every pos
sible way.

White Han and Negro Exchange Vol
leys but Neither Is Hurt.
Foreman, Sept. 22.—In a long dis
tance pistol battle yesterday on the
Body farm, O. B. Phillips, a negro
tenant, took five shots at, L. C. Cooney
the farm manager. Cooney, in turn,
fired six shots at the negro. Neither
was injured. It seems that Phillips
and a negro named Crowder had had
a difficulty over Phillips’ going into
Crowder’s horse lot at night, and
Phillips went over to settle the dis
pute with his .41. Phillips still is at
Busier Brown Coining.
The kidd*es will be interested to
know that Buster Brown of the funny
papers will visit Ashdown Thursday
afternoon. Ho will be at the Palace
Theater at 4:30. He will have Tige
with him, and Tige will do some of
his stunts. A souvenir will be given
to every boy and girl attending. Bust
er and Tige will perform free for the
boys and girls by the courtesy of
R. P. Lindsay.

Nome Startling Facts arc Revealed—
Campaign t« Correct Well
Under Way.
As the Red Cross nutrition work
proceeds some surprising facts rela
tive to the children of ttie county are
i e\ ealed as shown by the figures
found below, the results of actual
tests. The program for the continu
ation of the work has been outlined
and will be found below:
Monday—Ogden—3:00 p. m. Nutri
tion lecture for adults.
Tuesday—Ashdown—3:00 p. m. Nu
trition lecture for adults at Presby
terian Social Home.
Wednesday—Richmond—3:00 p. m.
Mothers meeting, and nutrition lecture
at church.
Thursday—Foreman—3:00 p. in. in
auditorium, Food and Nutrition lec
Friday—Rutal schools and special
Miss Gillette, nutrition worker, is
especially anxious that the parents,
particularly the mothers attend not
only the nutrition meetings each week
but visit the classes in the schools as
'often as possible. Work will be
carried on in each place as indicated
during the next two months. Where
ever possible the worker will return
to the rural school for at least a
second visit, and more if time permits.
Why are the children weighed?
Many parents probably ask that ques
tion. The children are weighed and
measured simply to ascertain wheth
er they come up to normal for their
age and height. If your child is con
tinuously 10 per cent or more below
average in weight and fails to make
the usual and continual gain that he
should in growing he is under weight
and probably malnourished.
Then the thinking parents become
concerned and find out the cause and
overcome it. A part of the nutrition
workers job is to advise with those
parents and children and help in any
way she can to bring the children up
to normal.
Malnutrition may be caused by a
number of different influences. Pro
bably some |of the most prevalent
causes in Little River county are
malaria, diseased tonsils, defective
teeth, adenoids, common childhood
diseases—so called—as whooping
cough, measles, etc. A great many
children are eating very ..poorly bal
anced diets, some are not getting
enough rest and some are working
beyond their strength. Removal of
the cause is the only thing that will
correct the very high percentage of
malnutrition found.
Miss Gillette has visited schools in
all. parts of the county. 1013 children
have been given the height-weight
test and 524 or 51.7 per cent were
10 per cent or more below normal.
The schools visited average as fol

A Giant Aligator
Killed in Little River
Chas. Bow lea brought to town and
exhibited on the streets Monday the
hide of a giant aligator, which was
killed by Jim Anthony in Little River
last week. The aligator. was killed
near what is known as Mack’s Camp
below Millwood. The hide was
stretched on the sidewalk and meas
ured 11 feet and 2 inches. This is
considered an extra big one. The
prize aligator at Hot Springs would
hardly measure half so long and he is '
said to he more than one hundred ,
years old. The one killed here must I
have been a big aligator when Wash
ington crossed the Deleware. Many
aligators inhabit the lakes in this
county, but are not commonly seen. It
is unusual to find one in the river.

Fate Makes New
Championship Record
F'ate Collins of Ashdow n, champion
cotton picker of tlie world, hearing
that a common country nigger up
at Foreman had spread himself all
over a cotton patch from tile rising of
the sun to tin. setting th reof and in
a whole clay had picked a little more
than Fate, the champion, had picked
by noon, and furthermore that the
said Ike was making big talk about
being the champion itis ownself, Ike,
just to settle this nigger once and for
all went out and picked until 4 in the
afternoon and ran ttp a record of G03
pounds. That ought tc settle Ike’s
hash, since Ike can only claim tha.t
52S pounds in the best he ever did.
Ike should have known that when
Fate picked 4411 pounds by norm he
could do a little bit better than that
by picking the other half cf the day.
Fate dropped into the News office
Saturday and said, “Tell urn 1'se the
champion,” and he most certainly is.
-He broke his rule last week by pick

‘M nsalisfiiclcry Progress Continues in
Most Localities,” Repcr* Sap
Washington, Sept. 20.—Little change
was noted in the condition cf the 'Cot
ton crop during the week ending Sep
tember 19, a review issued today by
the Weather Bureau said, the “unsat
isfactory progress continuing in most
localities.” Rainfall was frequent in
the more southern portions of the belt,
it is said, but was light elsewhere
with temperatures above ihe season
able average.
Conditions were somewhat more fav
-orable in Arkansas and Oklahoma, the
recent moisture being very favorable
in Arkansas and the progress of the
crop fairly good in Oklahoma.
"Warm and mostly dry weather pre
vailed in northern Georgia and the
drouth prevented further development
in the northern portion.
“Cotton isteuyiv deteriorated in
South Carolina because of drouth and
weevil damage; the top crop has been
practically destroyed. Colton was
mostly poor to only fair in North Caro
lina. There was practically no top
crop in Tennessee.
"Frequent showers and heavy rains
were unfavorable for picking and gin
ning in the more southeastern por
tion cf the belt. Elsewhere through
out the belt the weather was generally
favorable for harvest and both pick
ing and ginning made rapid progress ”
