TO BE REORGANIZED
Negotiations Are in Progress Now Look
ing to the Settling of the Affairs
of This Company Satisfac
While we cannot speak authoritative
ly it looks like the Bell Manufact
uring Company will soon be in opera
A meeting of the stockholders was
held Tuesday in Winder for the purpose
of considering the affairs of the com
pany and of furthering if possible the
negotiations that have been in prog
ress for some time looking to a settle
ment of the affairs of the Bell Com
pany and of resuming operation. Most
of the former directors were re-elected
and while the nffairs of the company
are still in the hands of the courts it is
very likely that a settlement will be af
fected in a short time.
At this meeting Mr. John M- Wil
liams was elected president, who will
take charge of the affairs of the com
pany and direct its destiny as soon as
the courts turn it back to its owners.
This entire section is very much in
terested in seeing the Bell Overall com
nany on its feet and operating again.
It means employment for many people,
and a large addition to the business ac
uities of this city.
We hope to be aide to announce pos
itively in just a short time that a set
tlement has been affected and that the
Bell is ready to begin work again.

Boys’ Camp Planned.
For several mouths the Boys Depart

been working on plans for a summer
outing for the boys department of the

great event of the year for the red

believes that they have found the most
desirable place in the country. This

wonderful fishing, and is unexcelled for
natural beauty. There will be cot

gone from home and we had nothing to
L-at we decided to try out the Williams
Bros, restaurant, and we must admit
we were agreeably surprised at the
variety of dishes and the manner in
which it was served. Williams Bros,
art* serving one of the best regular
dinners we have ever seen at 35 cents.
We were served with vegetables, chick
en, chicken dressing, sweet potatoes,
English peas, corn muffins and loaf
bread, hot rolls, strawberry short cake,
and other things—at least a dollur’s
worth at some places—for 35 cents.
Then, too. we were surprised at the
number of business men and women
who go there for regular dinners. It
reminded one of a real city restaurant.
Job T. and Pearl Williams are known
as up-to-date restaurant men and are
proving it with well-prepared food at
a very small price. Their short orders
are also very inviting and reasonable
in price. They have had many re
quests that they put on this regular
dinner for Sunday, but haven’t fully
decided yet to do so. If you haven’t
been around to the Williams Cafe you
will be surprised when you do go, if
you have been under the impression
that it is just an ordinary eating place
with the usual number of dead heads
hanging around discussing the league
of nations, etc. Nothing like this in
rhe Williams Bros, restaurant. We
really enjoyed our dinner there.

The Winder High Ramblers liuve
started rambling again. Last week
they journeyed up to Auburn to play
Auburn High School on the Christian
College diamond. On arriving they
saw a mixture of Auburn High, Chris
tian College and Auburn citizens al
ready in battle array, but K'4 was not
afraid or nervous for he bad up his
sleeve a trump in a dark horse twirier
from the sophmores, Hon. Woodfln Hill.
“Smugger Fritz” pitching his first
game for Winder, performed grandly,
pulling himself out of some had holes,
the Auburn Lads getting only 5 hits
off of him. Several times during the
first inning did Hill allow Auburn to
get tlie bases loaded but by masterly
pitching and flue playing on the part
of Winder boys they only scored once.
Tin- Winder boys drove four pitchers
from the mound. They started by get
ting 4 runs the first inning off a (fiiris
tian College student, the next two were
Auburn lads and the last was an Au
burn citizen. Jacobs starred in the in
field for Winder robbing the Auburn
Lads two liners and assisted in two
double plays. McWhorter starred In
the outfield. The heavy four went
wild with the stick, Jacobs getting 1
>ut of 5, Moseley 2 out of 5, Whitley
3 out of 5, and Carpenter 4 out of 5.
Only one error was marked up against
the Winder lads. The final score wus
11 to 2 In favor of Winder.
These boyß have a fast team and
have a few games scheduled for Valley
Park. Watch for the dates and come
out and see the Ramblers go.
