HUGHES OK WILSON?
When the New York papers early
Tuesday night, on the face of returns
" - . . . -
from the eastern states, auu&uncea
that Hughes was elected, many per
sons went to bed thinking it was all
over. Imagine their surprise Wednes
day morning when on awakening they
found that instead of Hughes being
elected as they thought President Wil
son had made great gains during the,
night and that the vote of the western
states was looming up as a big con
tending factor and would possibly elejt
Mr. Wilson. This standing continued
all through the day "and well into the
night Wednesday , with the odds
slightly in favor of Wilson. As we go
to press the contest is still undecided
and it may be everal days before the
final result is known. It was our de
sire to give our readers a definite re
port on the national, state, congres
sional and county elections this week,
but as far as the national election is
concerned, they will have to content
themselves with an uncertainty.

The cost of disease to individuals
and communities can hardly be estima
ted. In addition to the financial loss
through disease, the physican burden
adds .its weight, both combining to
make a state of affairs deplorable and
sad. However, a source of gratifica
tion is" to pe found in the fact that
people more and more each day are
taking steps to combat preventable
diseases, and especially is the work
of medical inspection of school chil
dren to be commended. In this issue
of the Hustler appears an article along
this line-by Dr. T. M. Jordan of the
North Carolina Health ..department.
This article is reproduced from a re

announcing that Poland hadfceen es

pressed people, are now resurrected
to a new life. The liberty that had
been destroyed by the Russians is now
restored and the rule of the knout has
been abolished. Poland has been
given back . to western civilization.
North Carolina again stands by her
colors, despite the vaporings of a noisy
minority. Four years of Bickett and

belongs the credit. So it is little won

would classify him as a "cKarming"
entertainer, but sex in this case saves
even the discriminate use of a good
adjective. Although the gathering of
newspaper boys was small Saturday
in Hendersonville, Garlington did his
part and that very, very well. In

MIGHII BATTIE STAGED v I
AT liljljiu, lilitxxn iLvMjrK
Hard and 'Rough Football Game Between-Blue
Ridge and Christ
, School End iiTte 6 & 6.
The football teams of Blue Ridge
School and Christ School .battled to a
6 to 6 tie on the gridiron of the, locals
Monday afternon. From a spectator's
standpoint itwas a beautiful game,
full of thrills long runs, splendid
tackling and great work by both sides.
But it was a mH'ir? Kard and rough
game, which had its full toll of injuries
for the Blue Ridge beys. ;
With Lott, star tackle of the locals,
out with a broken col:ar-bone, and
Dermid away on a pleasure trip, the
Blup Ridgians started the game with
two substitutes and tiud as opponents
a team outweighing them about twelve
pounds to the man. .Afior about three
minutes of play Sample was fouled af
ter a long forward pass to wink
which netted thirty five yards, and af
ter that being unable-to tackle, pass
or run with the bail, he was present to
his team .only in moral support, as his
coaches 1 did not take him from the
game. Sample had received internal
injuries. Early in the first quarter
Craig" was knocked out, and twice
more during the first half of the game
time was taken out on account of in-.
juries to the local boys.
But despite the fact that Blue Ridge
wag thus handicapped they put up. a
hard and gritty game and neid tne ter
rific Christ school forwards from a
second touchdown. Three times Wil
son was forced to kick, his long spirals
averaging over 40 yards. Christ
school, who was on the offensive most
of the time had a ferocious attack and
at times long runs by Thane and Clay
ton mit the Blue Ridgft goal in danger.
However they were greatly hurt by
penalties which were too frequent to
mention, as infringement of rules and
at timeslack of knowledge of rules
made penalties of from five to fifteen
The Blue Ride touchdown came in
the first quarter as a result of a lon
pass to Swlnk. a penalty due to Warf
interfering with a runner in the at
tempt to catch a pass, and line bucks
by Morris and Allen, in the same
quarter Tuggle recovered a Blue Ridge
iurauie aua ran iwcuijf uve uo wi
a toucnaown. otn teams missea a
easy goal after touchdown.
Christ school showed one of the
strongest attacks that has been offerefl
the local boys. Thane and Clayton
were not to be stopped until in the
shadows of the coal posts. Tuggle
and Saunders were deadly tacklers on
end and broke up many runs for a
loss, while Lackey was a stone wall in
the line For Blue Ridge no special
one should be mentioned and every
one deserves" a great deal of praise.
Most of the team, reeling and half
knocked out by the opponents, fought
with a dogged determination and out
up. when in danger, an Impregnable
defense. Morris was twice knocked
out by his hard tackles. Allen, play-
ing witn a iracturea leg, - put up tne
best game of his career and won lau
rels for himself. Swink, the lightest
man on either team shone as a star on
the defense and did not. stop his dead
ly tackling even after a blow had
caused internal throat bleeding. Hous
ton, Carson and Bridges as line substi
tutes played beyond all expectations
and presented a powerful line, despite
the fact that it was eleven or twelve
pounds to the man lighter than the
regular line of the previous week.
Brown and Egerton backed the line in
fine, style and often saved their team
from long gains by beautiful tackles.
Wilson, who took Sample's place on
the defensive, filled the shoes of the
team captain' in splendid form and
made hard and low tackles. Morris,
clever little halfback, was again the
chief groundjgalner . and caused quite
a little worry to his husky opponents.
Rhodes and Craig were formidable
guards who made gains on llh.bucks
almost impossible for Christ school.

THE X -TLL COME BACK TO YOU,'
Alice Brady, the popular star of the
speaking stage-who has recently been
signed to' a long term eotnract by the
World Film Corporation, will appear
at the Queen theatre on Thursday;
Nov. 16," in the great Larry Evans'
story of all outdoors, "Then I'll Come
Back to You."
In filming this five-act production
the producing company was taken out
west, where tfie big timber tracts, the
gushing rapids if the rivers an dthe
very surroundings for 'miles around
would lend to the story , the very at
mosphere the author desired for the
technical and atmospheric interpreta
tion of his story. As it was necessary
to. seek a location where the river
could be spanne dby a railroad bridge,
and where the spur of tracks of the
railroad bended their way into the
very hearts of the forests, Director
Irving spent considerable time m
finding the ideal spot. That he was
successful in procuring locations that
will give the story its proper atmos
phere will be realized the moment thv
audience lays eyes on the splendid
forests, and timber regions, the rush
ing of the great river . below the
bridge, the coming of the timber rush
down the river are all so vividly ;or
trayed as to leave the" spectator in
wonderment as to how it is possible to
give such realism in a motion picture.
Suffice it to say that realism is one
of the hobbies of the World Fil'ii Cor
poration, and that it must be procured
by .all its directors'-regardless of cost.

this picture her supreme effort at enic
