$50,000.00 Bond Election
Called for August the 26th
To Complete Court House
In this issue of the News appears a
cull for an election on August 20 tli,
to determine whether or not the voters
of Barrow county are willing to issue
$50,000.00 worth of bonds for the pur
pose of completing the court house. On
account of the court house being built
when the price of all kinds of building
material was at its zenith, the cost of
building same will be much more than
at first calculated. This bond election
will decide whether the people prefei
to issue bonds or to pay this additional
cost by taxation this year. It is an
important question and every voter and
tax ‘payer in the county is interested
in the outcome.

FINE RAIN FALL
This section lias been visited by fine
rains during the past ten days and the
crops are growing right along. The
corn crop is unusually good and Bar
row comity has more food crops within
its borders this year than ever before.
Besides an unusually large corn crop,
large acreages have been planted in
sweet potatoes, sorghum, and other
food crops. The cotton crop is looking
flue and unless the boll weevil destroys
it Barrow county will make a good
crop of the fleecy staple. The farm
ers are putting up a stiff fight and if
the boll weevil is not routed it will not
be their faj*lt.
We believe a good crop of all kinds
will be grown by this county this year
and that next fall will see business re
suming its normal const! itions. Let’s
quit complaining and to a hopeful
mood get down to business.

CAMP FIRE GIRLS
AND BOY SCOUTS
By L. W. Collins
They say that if you really want to
know folks, all you have to do is to
spend a week in camp with them. The
good-natured, the selfish, the grouch,
all have a chance to let others know
their true selves, when forced to spend
the greater part of each day in such
close proximity to forty or fifty oth
ers. To say the least, it is wonderful
training in sociable living., And after
several days spent with so many of
the young women of Winder, it is easy
to have a far better opinion of the twen
tieth century girl, the maker of the
homes of the future. As for Winder
girls—well, they just don't make them
any better. They are obliging, indus
trious, talented and unselfish —and ev
erything else that it takes to make up
It was more than interesting to ob
serve the contrast between the two
camps. This is not to the disparage
ment of the boys, for they are just dif
ferent. But last week the camp looked
continually as if a cyclone had struck
it—a shirt here, a bathing suit there,
a towel in the bushes yonder. But now
behold ! Tents and cottages look as If
everything were in readiness for a re
ception ; everything in place even to
the flowers on the camp table. What
could we do without them? And then
the appetites! The boys would pass
back their plates time after time and
then call in vain for more With prac
tically the same meals, we have had
to beg the girls repeatedly to eat what
is left over. It is true, however, that
|up in this mountain air, we all stay
I hungry most of the time in spite of
our hard working cooks. There is
j something else new this week. Every
! night, over the hills, you can hear the
| sound of the well-balanced voices in
beautiful harmony. You will hear the
1 “Camp Winder” song when they come
home. But if music is so uplifting in
■ its influence, why can’t we teach our
boys to sing?
Saturday night was stunt night, and
tiio’ it rained outside, it was all sun
shine inside. So much talent was
there and such an elaborate program,
that it was decided to postpone part
of it till Monday. Day , after day
some other member of the camp re
ports a mastery of the art of swimming
—for it's all in the first stroke, after
all. We are training by daily hikes for
a grand attempt to scale Mount Yonah,
and Winder girls are going to be daunt
ed by this either.
The camp is Already an annual affair
Over one hundred young people have
vmeu to come tack again next summer,
including many who are unfortunate
ly unable to attend the present camp
on account of lack of room. It has
been very much worth while. This
young generation is worthy of the very
best that can be builded into their lives,
and a camp such as this will Guild mus
cle, brain and spirit. The camp man
agement, with all the host who helped
plan tlds trip for the young people, lias
done splendid work. Where they have
failed to do as much as they hoped,
they will be aide to improve upon it
next year. These young folks, most of
them, are coining hack home with high
er ideals, with stronger bodies and
more willing minds to apply themselves
to their home tasks. Our young peo
pleple do not need so much repression
as direction for their energies, and
they will respond nobly to any effftrt
to call forth the best that is in them,
when there is any small effort made
on our part to enter into their inter
ests and their concerns.
The biggest thing, of course, was the
camp Are. Let the scout poet, W. M.
Tories, of Camp Teeumseh, tell us
uliout this in his own words. The
memories of these evening hours of de
votion, we hope will linger long in the
minds of all our campers here,
“After supper we got started
On a featur uv the camp
That desarves tew hev its rankin’
With the boat-ride an’ the tramp;
Thet wuz when we got the Camp Fire
Fer tew burnin’ warm an’ light,
An’ hatched up impromptoo programs
Fer tew make the even’s bright.
Hingin', speakin’, tellin’ stories,
Spinnin’ yarns, an’ stories read
Out uv books, made time fly swiftly,
Till ’t wuz time to git tew bed.
Thun we’d finish up our evenin’
By a gratitudeful prayer,
Givin’ up our souls an’ bodies
Tew a lovin’ Father’s care.
Ah! them days wuz days uv blessin’
Good Roads Boom in
The Ninth District
With the prospect of excellent crops
and an outlook for satisfactory busi
ness conditions this fall, the counties
of the ninth congressional district are
developing increased interest and enthu
siasm for the construction of good
roads, according to Frank T. Reynolds
secretary of the Georgia State Automo
bile association. Mr. Reynolds spoke
last Saturday in Cleveland, White
county, in behalf of a SIOO,OOO good
roads bond issue which will soon be
voted on in that county
“The Ninth congressional district is
composed of nineteen counties and witli
one exception is the largest district in
(lie state,” said Mr. Reynolds. “Ten
of the counties, Batiks, Barrow, Daw
son, Fannin, Gilmer, Hall, Jackson,
Lumpkin, Towns and Union, have voted
a total of $1,190,000 for good roads and
this congressional district lias only
three districts ahead of it in the state
in this matter. That is a mighty good
showing and when you take into con
sideration the taxable value of the
Ninth, it beats any other district in
