VOLUME 2 NUMBER 155. THE GREENEVILLE DAILY SUN, RIDAY. SEPTEMBER 26, 1919. FIFTEEN CENTS A WEEK PRESIDENT WILSON CANCELS REMAINDER OF SPEAKING DATES ON WAY BACK TO WASHINGTON ON ACCOUNT OF ILL HEALTH H QRE1 N! DAILY SUN Greene County Fair Notes on a Success- Work Accomplished a. Today wag devoted to the schools of the county, and had there been a heart of stone in the great crowds that witnessed the parade, that heart would have been melted or else been fit for the stone heap. There must have been five thou sand people on the streets with fully balf of them from the different schools. So well were the gchools represented, that it was necessary to for mlines not only at the high school building but at the grammar school building, then in marching the two lines met and passed in opposite direc tions, the. effect of which was beau tiful as well as inspiring. Banners addressed to the county court asking for more, money .for schools, more buildings, more teach ers and that a chance be given every girl and boy to attend school, were carried by some of the schools. All along the line of march, when the children of the Orphanage came in sight, it was the signal for waving and hand-clapping. We sew tears in the eyes of some. Perhaps they saw in their mind's eye the lives from which some of these dear children had been rescued and put on the road to useful citizenship by th's great insti tution. Mr. Wyser, the superintendent of the Orphanage, brought up the rear of his big family with a pony and cart, the little vehicle filled with the wee tots. This little crowd, too, wore the smile that betokened the love and attention they were getting every day of their little lives. 7 Probably no single event of this splendid fair will do more good, last ing good, to the community and coun ty in general that this "School Meet," which was so ably handled by the men and women who worked so hard to make it a success. . " i; After the parade, Mr. Harry Clark, of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, made a stirripg. address in behalf of education. When the faculty and student body of Tusculum passed in the parade, we felt like lifting our hats and breath ing a prayer that God would bless that grand old institution There they came, every one with a smile, from faculty back to the last stu dent; and why shouldn't they? One hundred and twenty-five years of ser vice with honor is enough to bring a perpetual smile on the faces of these present-day workers, and ' on our faces, too. Two gentlemen from Knoxville stood in front of the fruit department. They were arguing the question 'as to whether those fine apples, and peaches were actually raised here in Greene county or not. They had just about decided that they had not when Francis Harrison hove in sight, and they were soon convinced that they were not only raised here in three or four different orchards, but that there were many orchards in the county capable of producing as fine fruit as any seen there. They re marked, "We didn't know you could doit." As usual, the Red Cross come to the front. Some one remarked, "Per haps our soldier boys have seen so much of the Red Cross that they have grown weary of it," but to this they gave answer, "No; a thousand times, no,' in their eagerness to reach the Red Cross booth and enjoy the splen did treat prepared for them by the good people of the county from the different Red Cross organization. The Junior Red Cross boqth was lib erally patronized by all. Here the children from the different junior organizations contributed things to, sell, and a ready market was found for everything. ,Mr. H. R. Meade contributed largely to the financial success of this booth by letting the ladies in charge sell his 'fruit juices exclusively, and at the same time gave pleasure to all who enjoyed his product. The fair was a success from start to finish. It was accomplished at the end of a very poor crop year. It has been a great thing for this county and for the individual. It has been managedS by those who love . trf do such things, and they entered into it with all their hearts. Lets havl the Fair next year, managed by the same corps of hustlers, and when anybody criticizes them and tries to belittle their work or stir up opposition lets tell the mto get up a fair of their own and see if they can do any better U.

We have done this at a disad vantage until our new press arrives which has been delayed. After which we expect to continue The Daily Sun as an eight-page seven-column newspaper. This announcement was made some weeks ago, but upon account of strikes, doubtless of which you are all aware, we have been delayed in getting in our new press. For this reason we are going to once more offer the readers, patrons and friends of Greene County's only daily newspaper The Daily Sun a chance to secure the yearly subscription on Thursday, Friday or Saturday of this week at the old price of $2.00 only. This offer is good for either new or renewal subscrip tions to The Daily Sun. We trust that as many as have appreciated our efforts in giving Greeneville and Greene County their first daily paper during the past few years will appreciate this offer enough to take advantage of it on at least one of the days mentioned above. As we state,, positively, this is the last chance they will have to secure the paper at this price. aa J U.S. Soldiers May I Stay in Siberia for Another Year Yet Susp J partment that American ol- J diers will be retained in Siberia $ until January, 1920, if not J longer, was indicated officially $ J- yesterday when Secretary Baker J 4 requested the seven affiliated J welfare associations to continue $ $ their work among these troops 4" J questions by members of the J Congress that tilts withdrawal J J of the Siberian expedition was J awaiting the decisions of Presi- J f dent Wilson. 4" ! j j j j !
