THE DAY WE DO CELEBRATE TUESDAY, JULY FOURTH The trial of Mrs. Laura Scott, of this city, for the murder of Ed ward Mullaney, is on in the cir cuit court, Port Huron, this week.

ALUMNI BANQUET Going back to the seemingly preferred manner of annual alum ni gathering, the members this year met around the banquet table on Thursday evening, June 22d, at 7:30, in the dining room of the Methodist Episcopal church. Roses in baskets on the walls and roses on the tables made the pret tiest decorations possible. Can dles and floor lamps mado an effective lighting. One hunrded and six members of the Alumni association and their guests were seated at the tables with, as far as possible, classes together. The class of 1916 quite dis tinguished itself by having the largest number of members pres ent on this occasion. Rev. F. D. Mumby invoked a blessing over all and then the feast of three courses was served by the ladies of the church. - As president, Myrtle Wllks gave a neat little address and also welcomed the recent graduates. The secretary, E. Pearl McDon ald, called the roll, to which, it seemed, all too few answered. So many Yale graduates have wan dered far abroad and are unable to get back to these reunions. A ladies' quartette, Leta Hol den, Fredda Holden, Nila Holden and Mrs. Rhea Andreae, gave two very pretty selections, and Neva Ostrander favored with two beau tiful solos. Miss Wilks then introduced the speaker of the evening, Rev. Mar vin, a Methodist minister from Pontiac. Mr. Marvin made, in a humorous way, a good impression on his hearers and gave as his subject, "Life," producing many good thoughts and points for con sideration. Sam Ludincrton. Rawlev Hall Tnan, Dick Staley and Willard Gough formed the men's voices which gave the last song on the program. Music by the orchestra was given throughout the ban quet. STARTED TWO SHIFTS The Yale Woolen Mill has re ceived a large order from the Ford Motor Co. for making cloth to be used in the manufacture of Ford cars and sedans.

PRESBYTERIAN CHOIR GIVE PLEASING CONCERT Sunday evening the Presby terian church was well filled and the sacred concert program given by the choir, published in last week's Expositor, proved to be a delightful and pleasing one to the audience. The various numbers, solos, duets, quartettes and anthems were extremely well rendered and the selections appropriate. The combination .of piano and organ playing by Mrs. Cavanagh and Mrs. Phillips was very effect ive and the violin solo by Marion Learmont gave an added touch of charm. This evening service, the last to be held in this church until September, was most enjoyable to everyone attending.

Three events are scheduled to take place a green race for a parse of $50.00; the B class, in which $123.00 will bo divided, and the Free-for-all for $150.00.

Both teams are out to win and those who attend will see a snap py game. This will be a good, full after noon of clean sport, and every citizen of Yale and vicinity should plan to attend. YALE TAKES SMALL END Too much territory was taken in by the visiting team last Thursday for the Yale "Boosters" io win the ball game at City Park, at which time the Avoca bunch visited the city. But it was an interesting game just the same, although our boys were defeated by a score of 3 to 4. Two of the visitors' runs were made in the first frame, and none of their circuits were earned. Gough had them guessing all the time, and if he had received air tight support from his team mates the result would have been different. The playing of the "Boosters" in this game proves that Yale has the makings of a fast base ball team and we can look for some gcod games this summer. A game is being played this aft ernoon at City Park, Yale "Boost ers" vs. Brown City. LEASE CANNING FACTORY Fred J.

This was decided Friday in an opinion sent to Colo nel Roy C. Vandercook, head of the state department of public safety, by Merlin Wiley, attorney general. A number of complaints have been received to the effect that village officials, in their zeal to make of Main street a haven of safety, have placarded their streets with signs limiting the speed to less than that prescribed by the state law. The attorney general holds that the state law, which provides for 15 miles an hour on business streets, 20 miles in residential sections a'nd .35 miles on country highways, stands, except in city parks. SCHOOL QUESTION SETTLED The question that ha3 been giv ing the local school board consid erable trouble to solve, was fin ally settled Firday morning when George Windsor, treasurer of the school board, received word from the Yale high school stating that permission was given whereby the ninth grade could be taught in this school and credits would be honored for this work to pupils who wish to attend the Yale school. This will save the district at least $150 next year, as it was probable that a number of eighth erade graduates would attend school at Yale next year and un der the new arrangement it will not bo necessary to send these pupils away from home. H. H. McLean, who taught tne hign room in an efficient manner the past year, will again teach the ensuing year and is qualified to handle the ninth grade work. Ef forts will be made at the coming school meeting to pave the way for an addition to the present school buildine and the tenth grade work be taught here as well. Peck Times.
