Give Pleasing Church Party.
With Miss Leona Farris as the
leader of the young people of the
Presbyterian church on last Friday a
very pleasant gathering was held at
the church parlors, in which all the
young folks of Murray were the
guests. A very fine evening was had,
with games and plenty of eats, and a
very good time.
Many Hallowe'en Tricks Played.
Someone, we will not attempt to
say who. did many things which
a strictly decorus party would have
refrained from doing. Signs were
changed from the hotel to the garage
and a big truck was backed up to the
Wilbur Hewitt barber shop, probably
wanting to get a shave. Also a car
was overturned at the Jeff Brendel
barber shop, probably wanting a hair
cut. Some of the old car bodies of
Thomas Nelson were overturned and
his car that he used, was ran off and
secreted and returned afterwards.
Many other pranks were played, but
h has all gone by now.
Will Hold Bazaar in December.
The ladies of the Presbyterian
church have arranged to hold their
bazaar-which had to be postponed on
account of the cold rainey weather
and the fact that there was no heat
ing plant in the church building.
However, they will have the heat
ing plant installed in a short time
and be ready for the event before
the time conies. Watch for announce
ments of the affair which will be
on the evening of December 7th.
Some Get Gravel.
There has been an effort to secure
gravel on the Red Ball highway,
which was graded some five years ago
and put in condition four miles out
for gravel, and also for other por
tions of the road, which is knowa
r.s Highway No. 1, running from a
mile east of Murray to two miles
south of Elmwood. but with very
poor success. It seems that other por
tions of the county can get an abund
ance of gravel but the road which
s really the principal one in the
.ounty for it runs through the center
of the county has to go without, nor
is there any prospects for any in the
near future.
Not a Dumping: Ground.
Phil Keil wants the public to know
that the gate which leads into hi. -5
field is not a dumping ground, "nut
when there i.i rubbish to he dumped
there are plenty cf places where the
dumping of it would be a good thing
and would stop a bad wash, but Phil
does not want it placed where he
has to drive his teams over it.

Back in Demo
cratic Fold
John Garland Poglard, Regular
Past Campaign Named as Gov
ernor of the State.
Richmond, Va., Nov. 5 John Gar
land Pollard, former professor of law
at the college fo William and Mary,
was elected governor of Virginia to
night in what turned out to be a
landslide for the democratic party.
The democratic nominee led his
opponent. Dr. William Moseley
Brown, nominee for the anti-Smith
democrats and republicans, in every
congressional district and with less
than two-thirds of the total vote
tabulated, had amassed a lead of more
than 50 thousand votes. Pollard's
election was conceded by Brown
headquarters at 10:40 p. m. At that
hour returns from 1,275 of the state's
1.CS3 precincts gave: Pollard, 144,
923; Brown, S3, 760.
The overwhelming victory of the
democratic party was a surprise to
veteran politicians on both sides, al
though rollard headquarters had
made predictions of a "substantial
majority" for the democratic guber
natorial aspirant. ,
The campaign preceding this elec
tion was the most spirited since re
construction days. Anti-Smith demo
crats organized last year by Bishop
James Cannon, jr., of the Methodist
Episcopal church. South, and other
dry leaders, in opposition to the
presidential candidacy of Alfred E.
Smith, allied themselves with the
Virginia republican party in an ef
fort to wrrest state control from the
democratic party, which had held
sway since reconstruction. The cam
paign eclipsed all previous state con
tests for political oratory and de
bates between leaders.
Return Is Dramatic.
Virginia is the first of the five
"Hoover states" in the erstwhile
"solid south" to hold a state election
since the "solid south" was broken
in the presidential campaign last
year. The return to democratic ranks
was even more dramatic than the de
parture last year. Brown was never
in the lead in the unofficial tabula
tion of returns after the first pre
cinct reported.
James H. Price, democratic nom
inee for lieutenant governor, and
John R. Saunders, indorsed by the
party for re-election as attorney gen
eral, were swept into office along
with the democratic standard bearer.
Dr. Pollard was a stunch supporter
of the democratic national ticket in
the presidential campaign, making a
number of addresses in support of
Smith, he is a bone dry, ar.d receiv
ed the official indorsement of the
Anti-Saloon league in the campaign,
as did his opponent.
Prohibition Not Issue.
Prohibition did not become an is
sue in the campaign, although Bishop
Cannon placed it among the issues
v. calling for a repudiation of state
democratic leaders who supported
Smith. Bishop Cannon coined the
term "Raskobism" in criticism of
John J. Raskob, chairman of the
democratic national committee, and
coalition leaders denounced ""Ras
kobism" from the hustings during
the campaign.
Probably the most widely discuss
ed phase of the unusual campaign
was the "De Priest circular" inci
dent. A circular was anonymously
distributed containing pictures of
Oscar De Priest, republican Negro
representative from Chicago, and his
wife, along with an account of a
White house tea which the Negro
representative's wife attended and ex
cerps from a number of De Priest's
The assertion on this circular that
Henry W. Anderson, republican lead
er. Dr. Brown and the republican
platform stood for poll tax repeal
as a prerequisite to voting drew a
somewhat heated exchange between
party leaders. I
Anderson, denying the poll tax
statement as "absoluately false," ac
cused democratic headquarters of dis
tributing the pamphlet in a letter
asking Dr. Pollard if he "authorized
or approved" the pamphlet. The
democratic nominee termed the An
derson letter a "brazen piece of in
solence." World-Herald.
Maiden, Mass. Attracted by re

along the northwest border of the

refused to fight.
Further reports told of wounded
nationalists ooding into Chengchow

When Will Wars Cease?
Unless for the sins of the people
there would be no wars, but when
the people are disobedient, then
cometh wars, famines, plagues, sick
ness, poverty, and all the crimes on
the calendar. Just at this time there
is a crusade against war, and why
not when we consider the cost of
the world war, for it cost, lives, it
cost the wrecking of men for ages,
it cost the love of one for his fellow
it cost money, but that was the small
part of it, notwithstanding we are
still paying the debt, and will hand
it down to our children.
On Mission of Peace.
Ramsay MacDonald, the prime
minister of England, has just visited
us and Canada, on a mission of peace,
this is commendable, and we like it,
and we hope that the world will en

peace. The costs of war would build j
a wondeful country with pleasant;
homes for all, and all dwell in peace !
and security, if we only knew and
understood each other.
The Tiuth Shall Make You Free
Christ said of the truth, you shall
know the truth and then again he
said, "I am the way, the truth and
the life," these are very significant
expressions, and taken together, we
are to know the Christ, that is to be
imbued with His spirit, and that
. ; ' t .
Had that spirit been in the hearts
and lives of the ones who precipitated
the great World war, and as to that,
any other war, they never would have
occurred. To know the truth is to
know Christ, and to know the Christ
is to do as he teaches. John 3:16 says
"For God so loved the world that he
gave his only begotten Son, that who
soever believeth in him should not
perish, but have everlasting life"
This is what Christ says himself.
"He that believeth on me, though he I
were dead, yet shall he live, he that j
liveth and believeth on me shall ,
never die." Joshua said at the time j
of the assembling of the Israelites at

this day whom ye shall serve. ;

Republicans Win Louisville Mayor
altv Handily, But Democrats
Control Legislature.
Louisville Returns from Ken
tucky's legislative races indicated
that the democrats will have their
usual two-thirds majority in the state
house of representatives next Janu
ary and will control the senate.
The strong campaign waged by the
republicans to elect a legislature
failed to upset normal democratic ma
jorities in pratitally every county
where that party usually rules, and
republicans failed of election in a
number of close races. The republi
cans sought to gain a majority in
the legislature to strengthen their
control of the state government. Gov
ernor Sampson, a republican, was
elected in 1927 for a four-year term.
All appointive state officials are re
publicans, but all elective officials,
except the governor, are democrats.
Unofficial returns in the legisla
tive races indicated the election of
several candidates who announced
their opposition during their cam
paigns to the governor's policies,
