THE. STRAND THEATFR PROGRAM THURSDAY. MY BOH Marguerite Fisthei in “WEEK SIND ” ' -AROH 4TH.—Marguerite x in “WEEK END.’’ V&ATURDAY, March S.—BRIDE 13— . .• • Wm. Duneii’v 'and Comedy. " r im'is tin v IX ale, " VOL. XXVII. THE G. M. RAILWAY MUST BE RECLAIMED Mr. B. B. Cheek, Traffic Manager of The is Optimistic as to v the Situation y r 4 Mr. B. B. Cheek. Traffic Manager of the Gainesville Midland railroad, is op timistic in lis antcpation of improve ment in the serious situation facing the road at this time. He says we cannot and must not and will not fail, having utmost confidence in the ability and wil lingness of tin) employees, together with the full co-operation of the pat rons all along the line to immediately bring about a decisive change in the situation. There has been, as you must know, a sort of luke-warm feeling with both employees and patrons as to condi tions, which the Receivership has dis pelled. In other words, we have been awakened to the true state of affairs, and the possibility of not being able to continue operation, which enables us all to see and work together in such a way as the best possible results must develop. He states that there isn’t- asy ques tion but that the situation is serious, and that operation may be discontinu ed if the employees do not shoulder their part of the burden, and the pat rons do not stand by the road, and give thMr full support. He is not inclined on the dark side of the situa tion, and feels that every man with the road feels the same way, and that the situation will he worked out. He anticipates that a very strong effort will be made to show Mr. Baldwin and the management that recent conditions can be overcome, and that the patrons of the road interested all along the line, taking very special pains to see that- traffic is specifically routed and requests respected, will be done. He is very gratified at the interest already manifested along the road, and believes it will develop into a real ben efit, as a realization of the possibility to discontinue the road would be a tremendous drawback and misfortune to this entire section. Every effort, he states, is going to be made to pre vent this. Rev. and Mrs. Stanley Grubb Move to Winder ttev. Stanley R. Grubb, wso has ac cepted the pastorate of the Christian church, in this city, moved his fumily here last Thursday.

At the school auditorium tonight (Thursday) will be given the amusing and laughable entertainment that haw never been given in this city. Thirty of Winder’s business men and women take part. Truly this is one of the most entertaining plays ever put on the stage. It is called a “scream.” You just ought to see Joe Parham and Jule Wilson as bawling, squalling, crying babies, fighting and scrapping over their nursing bottles. Judge Johns as the deceased Mr. Par ley, Mr. C. O. Niblack as the groom who rolls his bride, Mrs. Reba Vonderleith, in a primitive carriage—the wheelbar row. are laughable in the extreme. We haven’t room in this article to mention (every! character —there are thirty of Winder's men and women in the play—and you just can’t afford to miss it. The play is given for the benefit of Winder's baseball club and is being coached by Mrs. Fitzgerald, of Atlan ta, which is a guarantee of its success. Admission, adults 55 cents, school children, 28 cents. Southeastern Christian College. DRAMATIC 'CLUB. “Tony, the Convict,” to be given at Southeasters Christian College by the Dramatic Club Friday evening, March 4, promises to be one of the best plays ever presented by students of S. C. C. The public will remember the high standard set by former plays giv en by tile students. Most of the actors in “Tony, The Convict" have appear ed upon the stage at S. C. C before and will be recognized by those who have attended former entertainments. The public is cordially invited to at tend “Tony, the Convict.” Admission will be 35c and 25c. The sensational escape of the con vict hi the first act is well acted by Mr. Snipes. “Tony” is a strong, many sided character. The villian, James Barclay, is played by Mr. Wade Gar rett. The second act contains comedy, in troduced by two tramps, and discloses a secret which enables the vindictive Mr. Barclay to lay plans to wifi Lena, the lovely daughter of Judge Van Cruger. “Lena" is a very emotional part, well acted by Miss Ruby Bridges, “The Judge” is played by Mr. T. O. Slaughter, with Mrs. Rollin Garrett as “Mrs. Van Cruger.” Professor Rollin McPherson has the part of Irena's lov er. Phil. More comedy is furnished by ser vants and the old-maid in the third act. Prof, and Mrs. J. L. Allgood and Miss Helen Blanton get in some good acting here. But this act also has a good deal of pathos. The plans of Barclay begin to fork out, the lovers are separated, and Lena torn awa.v from her home and parents. “Lena’s” best scene, perhaps is in the fourth act. Her father’s humble home is in sharp contrast to the lux urious one she has been brought away from. The villian meets a master and a fathei* saves his child. “Barclay” plays his highest card in the fifth act, 'and Lena resolves to sar rifice herself for the Judge. This is prevented by the return of the con vict and the detective. Barclay is ar rested, and Tony, the convict, comes into his own. Baptist Preachers in In Meeting at Bold Springs W ednesday The Appalachee preecrfers and work ers conference met at Bold Springs church Wednesday at 10:00 o clock, A large delegation was present from the entire territory: the roads were fine and the weather ideal.

Let all the “sports” who went wild over the baseball games last summer come out and help the home folks Then we had an imported team and we could yell ourselvets hoarse for them.

POTATO CURING PLANTJOR CITY Mr. G. W. Summerour is Arranging to Build Large Sweet Potato Curing House for Minder. The News is glad to state that Win der is to have another enterprise that will mean much to this city and sur rounding section. Mr. G. W. Stimmer our has definitely decided to build a large sweet potato curing plant in this city and to have it ready by the time this year’s crop is harvested. He will be in shape to either buy all the sweet potatoes that ure brought to this mar ket or store them for those growers who wish to hold. Sweet potatoes are easily grown in the Winder territory and they are a very profitable crop if they can be kept and marketed along through the year. Mr. Summerour has a carload of sweet potatoes on hand now that he pro poses to sell to any who may want to plant. He will also bed about 4(H) bushels to supply plants to those who do not buy the seed and bed for them selves. The Porto Rico variety is the only kind that the market demands and those who grow potatoes should plant this variety. We are confident that Mr. Summerour will find his venture a profitable one and that the farmers will also profit by his building the curing house. Men’s Club Have Inter esting Meeting Monday The second monthly meeting of the Methodist Men’s club was held Tues day night at the home of Mr. J. M. Ai ken, with a large attendance. Reports were mude by the various committees and remarkable progress was reported in all the undertakings of the church. The club has undertaken the publicity work for the night services of the church and has brought together great congregations during the lust few months. The Monday school attendance has been doubled in one month, nojt only in the adult department but in all grades. But the greatest success has been registered in the new spirit of en thusiasm that is in evidence hiu! that permeates the entire congregation. Ev ery church activity has felt its influ ence and the results have abundantly justified the existence of this new men's organization. I’lans for the future include a drlve for the enlistment of every man in Barrow county who is not attending Sunday school und the forming of a new Junior Baraca class for young men from the ages of 17 to 20. Plans were also made for the securing of an athletic field for the summer outdoor activities of the men and boys of the church. The building committee and minute men also made encouraging re ports. The spirit of the gathering was that only a beginning had l>een made in the work of enlisting the men of the city in church and Sunday school activities, and that the prevailing spirit of en thusiasm would largely increase the work that had already been done. The pastor, who was present, made the en couraging statement that he had never known u church where so large a pro portion of the membership were at work in helping build up the church, as in tint Winder Methodist congregation, at present. The choir, the club orches tra, and publicity committee, are plan ning for a permanent program of great Sunday night services with special fea tures, that will be profitable und inter esting to the whole community. Also a campaign of personal evangelism is being inaugurated to culminate on Easter Sunday. The ultimate aim for Sunday school attendance is 500, which is tiie membership of the church. At the close? of the business Session which was conducted by the president Mr. Paul Brooksher, the club adjourn ed to meet in social session. Mrs. J. M.
