Enge mann, the editor, were over in Sara nac installing a Model 5 Linotype in the Saranaaf office for H. T. and N. S. Johnson, publishers of that paper and the Pewamo News. The machine is a dandy and will be a valuable asset to the Saranac people. While we had a little trouble with Saranasgas oline, we more than made up for this inconvenience by eating chicken and other good stuff while we had our pe. dal extremeties shoved under the Johnson tables. The installation of the linotype by the Advertiser is a progressive step by a progressive firm of publishers. ' Ansel Johnston went to Durand on Saturday to accompany his wife and baby home.

Community Leadership. ...The great problem in promoting town progress is to get people who will take the lead, and do things. There aro usually plenty who are willing to help if someone will tell them what to do. It is easier to get half a dozen ,people to serve on a com mittee,; than it is to find on person who will be the chairman of that committee and take responsibility. There are plenty of people here in fielding who have excellent ideas and express them with force and intelli- fence. But if you ask them to take old and make an effort to carry out these very meritorious suggestions, O, no, they couldn't! The moment that it is suggested to anyone that he take the lead in any community proposition, he becomes filled with a modest and shrinking spirit- People are fearful of a lit tle criticism, of seeming to , make themselves prominent. And so for lack of positive leadership, most of our" good ideas are dead before they are born. , - f r No town gets ahead much until it ftas a live board of commerce or im provement society or whatever local name may be given.' The backing of such an organization helps people overcome the false modesty that leads them to seek the back seats. x If a person is qualified for leader ship, his friends should insist that he take office in 'community organi zation. If his friends believe him to be competent he should accept their judgment andhave faith in his own ability to ret things done. If a successful man or woman will only put the same energy or thought into community work that is put into that person's own business or home tasks, great things can be done for one's home town. And it is rewarding work. Public spirit is the quality that the community honors and val ues the most. It is the kind we should have in Belding. Mathias Lehmann, aged 80 years, died Monday at Grand Kamds. lie lived here many years and went to Grand Rapids recently for proper care and treatment.

These days when every boy wishes he had been born ten or fifteen years 'ago so he-could "go over," it's only natural that he should want a touch of military smartness in his clothes, . XTRAGOOD clothes have a stimu lating effect cn the boy; they'reHextra well made and possess those clean cut trim military lines which the boy val ues so much.
