MENT LEAGUE WITH OVER
The womaj'3 auxiliary of the Com
mercial club met at the court house
Tuesday evening, March 29, and
tanned a permanent organization
under the name of the Enterprise
Improvement League. Constitution
and by-laws were adopted and offi
cers elected for the ensuing year cs
follows: Piesideat, Mrs. Carl Roe:
vice president, .Mrs. C. M. Lock
wood; secretary, Mrs. B. B. Boyd;
treasurer, Miss Alta Davis; board
of directors, Mrs. A. F. Poley, Mrs.
W. R Holmes, Sirs. W. H. Graves,
Mrs. Fred Falconer, and Mrs. S. L.
The league will meet the first Mon
day evening of each month at 8
o'clock sharp, the next meeting be
ing Monday evening, Aprii 4, at tie
o'.d court house.
The aim of the organization as
stated in the preamble is to im
prove and beautify the city and to
that end the board of directors was
instructed to meet with the city
council at its next regular meeting
and ask that an order be issued for
the Immediaje clean-up of Main

idents and property owners will

enrolled and a number were added
at this mee.lng. All ladies of the
town and vicinity are requested to

When the bill providing for a-i
Osteopathic Board of Examiners, a
bill which became a law, was before
the legislature of Georgia last sum
mer, Judge John L. Hopkins of that
State wrote a strong letter favoring
its passage. Ia this letter he wrote
of the treatment he had received
from an os'eojath of his city from
which we quote the following:
"He gave no assurances, made no
promises. His treatment and Its
marked effects soon broke down my
prejudices against the new system.
My improvement was obvious, and
soon was to &U appearances com
plete. The unpleasant symptoms
passed away and I felt myself to be
In better condition than I had been
for many years. That I owe my
present good health all to the oste
opath, I do not doubt. The system
may run counter to our preconceived
opinions and to the theories and
practices of ages, but nevertheless
the facts remain. All progress flies
in the face of the present and a ven
erated past. Judging from my own
case and from a number of cases
lhat have come under my observa
tion, I would not. If I had the power,
withhold this system of healing from
suffering humanity, for the wealth
of the world. To withhold it, would
be a crime against humanity. I write
strongly, but it U deliberately done."

Need More Room
In Public Schools
Board Is Now Considering the Mat
ter Teachers Engaged for
' Next Year.
Additional room must be had in
the public school and the school
board is now considering whether
to adopt the makeshift of adding an
other room to the present buUdlng
or erect a new building on the south
end of the present school lot.
Another room added to the pres
ent building would almost certainly
spoil it la appearance and probably
shut off the light from one or more
of the present rooms. The best so
lution would be to erect a two or
three room building In the west part
of town for first and second primary
pupils and third and fourth grades.

A teachers were re-engaged for
