"Get out and get under," ragtime
favorite of days gone by, might well
apply to Miss Josephine Newton of
Osceola, Neb., member of the Help

office of the manager of the club.

her home in Osceola Miss Newton,
unable to get assistance from passers

She was misdirected, and in try

stripped a pinion of her machine and
ended up in the ditch.
She prevailed on a neighboring
fanner to telephone a garage, donned
overalls and went to work. When
the garage man arrived, all he did
was to boss the job, she said, and
with the patched up car, she com

Once in the city, she sent the call
for help to her father, Doctor New

Ad-Selling League and head oi
the advertising department of M. E.
Smith & Company, spoke before the
members of the Lions club at their
weekly luncheon at the Rome hotel
"Business is a matter of relativity,"
Mr. Duffy said.
"During the war business was so
good and money came in so easily
everybody was happy. Following

was natural. Then came up a
chorus of discontentment from every
hand. The fall from a large volume
of business to a smaller made every
"Had business taken a mora sud
den drop after the war, conditions
would have been much worse. Com
pared to what might have happened
had this sudden fall materialized,
business of the present day is good,
in fact very good and growing better
Mr. Duffy declared that courage
and the ability to keep one's head up
in spite of reverses were essentials
to every successful man.
During the meeting the Lions
adopted resolutions offering the
Lions of Pueblo any help they might
ask for. They also voted to tender
their sympathies to Eddie Guest, of
