The proposition made by the state
highway commission to contribute
$16,000 toward putting in repair the
road from Cleveland county line to the
Henderson county line and to take
over and maintain same in future, pro
vided the county contribute a like
amount, was referred to the townships
through which the highway runsjby

Wednesday. '. ' . -AM
The meeting was called to order by
Sol Gallert J. B. Freeman was elect
ed chairman and W. . Croker, secre
tary. The first move was made by
Mr. Gallert, who argued that the coun
ty as a whole should bear the expense
and not the townships. He was sup
ported by the chairman. Dr. L. B.
Mors and others. K. S. Tanner, Zeb
Jenkins and others favored the, town
ships handling the matter and the
fight was on.
The county commissioners - were
sent for and asked if they would issue
the bonds upon a petition qf a majority
of the taxpayers of the county. Mr.
Wilkins stated that he didn't want
anything to do.jvith a petition and the
other members indicated that it would
take a vote of the people to secure the
bonds. No county-wide election can
be held before next June and the pro
position to make the county shoulder
the debt was dropped and the township
proposition taken up
Messrs. Haynes, Jenkins. Sherrard,
Poole and others from Hig& Shoals
township were present and introduced
a resolution to change the road from
Colfax to High Shoals, arguing a bet
ter' farming and manufacturing sec
tion, a better grade, very little differ-
lence in mileage and connection with a
new and one of the best sand-clay
roads in Cleveland county. High
Shoals is the largest and wealthiest
township in the county and its entry
into the fight put life into the mteeting.
However, the location of the road was
left for the commissioners and the
highway commission to decide. . A
committee consisting of three men
from each township was appointed to
serve' with the commissioners in the
apportionment of the amounts ach
township is ,to vote.
The commissioners have mailed a
meeting of the committee to be held at
Rutherfordton next Tuesday at 2
o'clock, at which 'all necessary ar
rangements for calling an election will
be made;' and machinery for same put

Washington, Sept. Uncle Sam is
one of the best customers the newspa
per clipping bureaus have. Nearly
every, branch of the Government ser
vice is a subscriber to one or more
clipping bureaus, and. in addition, the
newly created offices, such as the
Food! Administration. The Shipping
Board, Council or National . Defense
and the Provost Marshal-General sub
scribe to the leading dailies of the
country, from which they clip matter
pertaining to their particular depart
departments. Since the entry of the United States
into the great world war thousands of
columns ofmatter have been printed ixi
the newspapers, weeklies, agricultural
papers, trade papers, religious press,
as well as the magazines, about the ac
tivities of the various branches of the
Government service.
From the time when the Selective
Draft law was first proposed and until
it was enacted by Congress, there was
voluminous comments on. the subject.
When the actual drawing took place
thousands of columns of newspaper
space were devoted to the matter, and
since then the numerous rulings of
Provost-Marshal Crowder have been
widely published. r All this matter has
peen carefully clipped and classified
under different headings, forming a
wonderful history of the Selective
Draft law. ,
Herbert Hoover's activities with the
food problem have likewise furnished
much copy for the newspapers, and
consequently the clipping bureaus
gained another good customer. Like
wise the Goethals-Denman controversy
about wooden ships was fully aired in
the newspapers, with the result that
thousands of clippings found their way
into the files of the Shipping Board.
Cabinet officers also like to keep in
touch with what the newspapers say
About their departmental activities.

Anxious Mamas Are Due for Surprise.
Great Lakes. 111., Sept. Anxious
mothers are making a great deal of
work for officers at the Great Lakes
Naval Training Station, and many of
their .letters indicate that the writers
are going to have the surprise of their
livetf when "Jackie comes marchine
home again."
Saying she is fearful lest her "darl
ing boy be shot during his enlistment
in the navy, a mother in southern Illi
nois has writen Commandant William
A. Moffett for permission to accom
pany him to ward off danger.
Another mother in far off Texas has
written, suggesting that her son be
allowed to send his, soiled clothing to
a laundry. !
"I read in the papers that the sail
ors have to do their own washing,"
the letter stated, "and I want to ask
you to let my boy send his clothing
to a laundry. He never was accus
tomed to doing anything like that, and
I know it'll break his heart if he has
to now. He always was so proud" at
nome. - t ,
A commissioned officer, who has
distinguished himself as a diplomat on
foreign I assignments, is detailed to
handle this kind of correspondence, to
mollify and comfort mothers who fall
to understand just what the navy Is
doing for boys who before , enlisting
were "tied to their apron strings.'
High School Girls to Wear Uniforms.
Waukegan, 1 11., Sept. Plain dress
ing and high thinking will be the rule
in the high schools this, year in "Wau-,
kegan. It .has been decreed that girls',
attending the public high schools must"
wear a uniform or middy blouse, and
white cotton skirt of blue woolen skirt,
according to the season. -
The idea is to encourage girls from
the poorer homes to attend school, to
minimize snobbery -and to concentrate
the minds of the girls upon their
studies rather i . than upon rivalry in
dress. . ' ' .. : . y ,
