LEADING SEMI-WEEKLY OF
NORTHEAST GEORGIA l
BOY IS HEADED
FOR BIG SHOW
Morgan Blake, leading southern
sport writer, in his column in the
Atlanta Journal Sunday has the fol
lowing to say of Roy Carlyle, Nor
cross boy now playing ball with the
The Carlyle family, of Norcross,
Ga., is likely to furnish to baseball
a contribution fully as large as the
Delehanty family of some years ago.
There are four Carlyle brothers, and
all of them are real ball players.
Roy (Dizzy) Carlyle, the oldest of
the boys, is playing right field for
Memphis, in the Southern league,
this year, and is the sensation of the
league. His recent feat of driving
the ball up in the railroad tracks at
the Cracker ball park was about the
most notable exploit of recent years.
Cleo, the second brother, plays the
outfield for the Charlotte team, in
the Sally league, thus following in
the footsteps of Dizzy, who was with
that club last year. He is going fine
in that league, and it is expected he
will soon be in a class higher asso
The third brother is Eldom, who
plays on the Ku Klux base ball team
of Norcross. He is also a player of
much promise. That brings us down
to the fourth brother, Harold, aged
14, who plays on the Norcross High
school team. Baseball prognosticat
ors in Norcross inform us that Har
old is destined to be the §Teatest ball
player of the entire bunch.
No less an authority than John Al
len, who has sponsored the famous
Buford teams for many years, is a
great booster of Harold, and predicts
a bright future for the lad. John saw
him play Buford recently and was
much impressed with his manner of
Norcross has already furnished
baseball with two big league players
in the Wingo brothers. Ivey has for
many years been a catcher on the
Cincinnatti Reds, and Red is now a
utility outfielder with the Detroit
If any of the Carlyle boys go to
the big tent, and we are here to re
mark that if ever we saw a minor
leaguer headed for the majors, Diz
zy is that man, then verily the little
city of Norcross will go down in his
tory as a most famous producer of
big league talent.
NOT RESIDING IN CITY
IS PROTESTED TO MAYOR
Atlanta, Ga.—Attorney Carl F.
Hutcheson, former member of the
board of education, has written May
or Sims protesting employment in
the public schools of teachers who
live outside the city limits. He said
120 teachers reside outside the city,
contending they receive $147,300
annually which, he claims, is not
spent in Atlanta.
The mayor made no comment on
the letter. He said he would investi
gate the matter before issuing a
Superintendent of Schools Willis
A. Sutton said that fitness to teach
was the first consideration and takes
precedence over anything else.
Mr. Hutcheson says the employ

ATLANTA PEN ALL
Atlanta, Ga.—The “Colony of
Notables” at the local federal peni
tentiary will have a famous addition
in the person of Congressman John
W. Langley of Kentucky, according
to press dispatches announcing that
Langley has been sentenced to serve
two years at the local ‘‘winter re
sort” for conspiracy in connection
with a whisky transaction. He will
join a group to which distinction re-,
cently was lent by the arrival of for
mer Gov. McCray of Indiana.
Another notable at the penitenti
ary is George B. Remus, the Cincin
nati millionaire, who is styled the
"bootleg king of the Middle West.”
Remus came here several months ago
on a special car, accompanied by ten
associates also assigned to this pris
on, and he has been working in the
prison library. There he utilizes the
legal knowledge which won him
fame and money in Cincinnati to aid
prisoners in making out their parole
applications and in other legal twists.
A congressman, a governor and
a millionaire! There was no ‘boot
legger’s row” at the penitentiary for
Remus and his confederates, but the
authorities may be forced to estab
lish a "Notables’ Row” to care for
the host of distinguished visitors, if
•the influx keeps up.
“STOP, LOOK AND LISTEN”
SLOGAN AGAIN SOUNDED
Atlanta, Ga.—Four states in the
south now have laws requiring the
driver’s of'motor vehicles to stop ten
feet from a railway crossing, and
making it a misdemeanor for failure
to observe the law, it was pointed
out here by railway officials. Missis
sippi is the latest of the states to
adopt the “stop at crossings” law,
its statute going into effect on the
first of the present month. The oth
er states having such a law are Ten
nessee, Virginia and North Carolina.
The "stop at crossings” law
should reduce the number of grade
crossing disasters, and it would do
so if motor vehicle drivers would all
observe the law, according to Atlan
ta railroad men.
It was stated here that 47 states
are planning or already have passed
aws making crossings more safe by
requiring greater caution on the part
)f motor vehicle drivers in crossing
railway tracks. Last year, accord
ing to figures recived here, three
thousand people were killed in grade
crossing disasters in this country,
and several times that number were

LAWRENCEVILLE, GEORGIA, MONDAY, MAY 19, 1924.
Washington, D. C., May 15.-—The
new building erected by the scientists
of the nation in Washington, D. C., is
called the National Academy of Sci
ences. Many ministers who have
visited it have called it a Temple of
God, since it exhibits His wonders to
all who may come to look.
In the building are dn view a num
ber of important scientific exhibits
and experiments, of which most stu
dents have read, but which few have
had a chance to see. The visitor can
here watch for himself the famous ex
periment of Foucault, first performed
in the Parthenon in Paris, by which
a very long pendulum is made to
show the rotation of the earth. Here
he has a chance to watch the Brown
ian movement of minute particles,
which demonstrate the continual and
never ceasing movement going on in
the structure of matter. He may ob
serve an experiment showing the
pressure of light (a very recent dis
covery) and watch the changing of
the sun and see the sun spots.
These, and many other marvels,
constitute a continuous exhibit for the
education and delight of thousands
of visitors for all time to come. The
experiments and exhibits will be ad
ded to, from time to time as new dis
coveries provide new marvels for ex

over President Coolidge's veto.
Party lines vanished as supporters
of the measure piled up a comforta

a financial standpoint I thought
surely no one could take exception
to. Do you tell me this country can’t

worthy of so great a nation to take
such a view."
The house came to its decision af
ter an hour’s debate, during which
some of the party leaders on both
sides of the chamber argued that
the position taken by the president
should be upheld on economic as well
as moral grounds. Advocates of the

i BUFORD BOY
TO RED CROSS
W. L. Nunn, former Buford boy,
who is now teaching in Japan, writes
the Buford chapter of Red Cross a
letter of thanks for aid sent to Ilia
territory to aid the suffering caused
by the recent earthquake there. Mr.
Nunn is a son of Prof, and Mrs.
Nunn, of Buford, and a brother of
Mrs. Ben Shackelford and Mrs. Ivie
Haygood, of Atlanta, formerly of
Lawreneeville. Bill Nunn is an honor
graduate of Oglethorpe and has been
on foreign soil for some time.

Mrs. V. H. Allen, Chairman Buford
Buford, Ga., U. S. A.,
My Dear Mrs. Allen: I wish to
thank the Buford Red Cross for
their generous donation to relieve
the suffering of these people render
ed homeless by the holocaust in the
Kanto district of this island empire.
Although the money was delayed
both in New York and also here in
Japan it at last reached me and was
at once turned over to a fund for
the buying, making and ciistribution
The great fund Contributed by
Americans to aid these people in
their time of need was appreciated
by every man, woman and ebild in
Japan. It aided the Japanese to re
cover their morale and save thous
ands of lives. People were fed, ba
bies were given milk and clothing,
and bedding was distributed to all
for the asking. Not only that but it
has had a great international signifi
cance in that it has taught the Japa
nese people that America is theit
frieiid. The generosity of the better
people of America has in some tvaysr
smoothed out the troubles caused by
Stupid legislation oh the part of
equally stupid Americans-

day are very different frotn the two
great cities of Japan before the
earthquake and are also very differ
ent frorf! the burning remains that f
fled from as a refugee in the middle
of September of last year Today*
the two places are cities of herracklv
not unlike an American army camp
during the last war. These were built
from American timber soon after the
quake. Indeed such houses were be
ing built before the fires were en
tirely out! A greater Tokyo is now
being planned by the people Who not
six months ago watehed all they po«K
sosssd go up in Paroee and in thous
ands of cases briened to the moans
and cries of members of the families
pinned under houses—cries that
were only stopped by tbe merciWUa
flames that swept all of Yokohama
and two-thirds of Tokyo. We think
that these people are building better
than before and we cannot but ad
mire the strong courage of such a
race of men and women.
Japan today needs help. Her lead
