you will donate for such work.
The Icne base ball team has al

bills, so let every live wire of

Every ball player should report
at this time so that we will know
what material we will have to
pick a winning team from.

The lone high school basket!

of the Lexington team in a fast (
game last Friday night on the;
local floor, by a score of 5 to 2. j
Owing to the fact that this was!
the first game of the season forj
both of the teams, the basket!
shooting was not very accurate, i
Both sides, however, were good '
at passing and close guarding, j
the lone tossers having the best ;
of it by a good margin at hand!-!
ing the ball.. No individual stars!
were evident on either team, the ;
honors being about equal. j
In the prelimary game, the;
lone 2nd team proved to be no i
match for Lexingtons representa
tives, and were defeated 20 to 2. '

The Bonus And Taxation
Secretary Mellon has laid a defi
nite program before the country
to reduce the incomi: tax bill over
$.'500,000,000 but if bonus lt-pislu-
tion is passed this reduction
not be made, but an inereiis.
If a bonus measure is passed,
the ex soldiers who are now be
comir g business men, would thru
increased taxation, h'lve to pay
a large percentage of the bonus
they receive. The candidate who
cries tax reduction in one breath
and then advocates various bur
densome obligations in the next
breath, is simply fooling the
people. Injured veterans should
receive every consideration from
the government such compen
sation should not be confused
with the bonus.
Slate and national bonuses ag
gregating $C50.C()O.0OI) have a!
ready been provided for veterans,
more than authorized by France
and England combined. The
