Duff, a small community west of Huntingburg, is on the main line of the Southern Railway between Danville, Kentucky, and St, Louis, Missouri.

Seven of the above pupils formerly attended the Mayo School west of Duff. Several families moved out of the school district at the end of the year 1927, as there were only seven pupils left. The Mayo school was closed and the remaining seven students, along with the teacher, Chester Brown, were transferred to the Duff School to finish out the school year. These seven students were Edward and Lloyd Peach, Maggie and Karl Stapleton, Lewis Hochmeister, Edna Hilgemann and Alma Irene Sunderman. ton and the presidents of the four clubs: Jim Deaton of Civitan, Dave Buehler of the Jaycees, Paul Nonte of Kiwanis and Tom Evers man of the Lions Club. Newman pointed out that it has not been long since the world first began to hear words like “ecumen ical" and he said that tha world has reached the stage where the spirit of ecumenism is becoming a reality. The guest speaker was Raymond K. Leroux of Louisville, the 27- year old regional director of the Kentucky Region of the National Conference of Christians and Jews. In his opening remarks he said he was amazed at Jasper's industrial complex after having been taken on a tour of the industrial areas that morning by Lenny Newman. Regarding brotherhood, he said it is a very simple thing—the ability of different people to get along. He said it is a typically American trait, since no other country has ever numbered people of so many different nationalities and ethnic and religious backgrounds among its population. Commenting on the expected race riots of next summer he said "Brotherhood Week comes in an off-season—between riots. Now is the time to think about what is going to happen next summer.” He said that while there is no local Negro population, what happens SCHNELLVILLE (MRS. JOHN FRITZ) Mr. and Mrs. Robert Hoffman and family spent Sunday evening at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Eddie Hopf and family at Duff. Visitors at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Leo Hoffman Sunday were Mr. and Mrs. Richard Schmitt and family from Ireland and Albert Fehribach of Jasper. Mr. and Mrs. Hilbert Uebelhor were at Jasper Sunday visiting est quest for civic competence, where what we have learned can be put to the best interests of all. Many Americans think we are a peace-loving nation, but Leroux pointed out that for decades no generation has lived out its life without seeing the country at war somewhere. “We have a history of violence. We are a nation of revolution. We have always had the opportunity to rise or fall, and in the past we have always met the challenge." Following the meeting he was presented with a tray made by the Jasper Wood Products Co. and bearing some art work by Eli Green, the artist in charge of decorating furniture at the Jasper Cabinet Co.
