Saturday was the largest pay day which Fairmount will have during the year of 1921, it is thought, without doubt. The T. A. Snider Preserve company distributed as per their contract, pay for all tomatoes delivered by the growers during the month of September, and the aggregate amount reached a little more than $40,000. A smaller amount was distributed by the company on' September 15, and final payment will be piade on November 15. About an equal amount of money has been paid out during the past three months for labor easily putting this firm in the lead so far as the amourt of money distributed annually in the city and vicinity is concerned.

Basket Ball Admissions To Cost Less This Year Admission to all basket ball games at Fairmount high school has been re- duced this .year to 15 and 25 cents. Last year the admission was 25 and 35 cents. The old gyni will be used this year for only the Alumni game Wednesday rfght. Immediately following the close of this week's program, work-, - i , 1 .i , f , , men win oegm on ine wors 01 remoaei- ling the old gym into an auditorum j and this, by the way, will be an audi-! torium of which everyone of Fair- '. and vicinity will be quite proud, j pacity under the ik plan will be j about five hundred. i basket ball ?ames have been reduced this year ; for (wo reasons. One being the gen- j eral decliner in prices during the past year to near the pre-war level, anU ' the other being that twenty-flve cents will be a more popular price 1 with local fans. The fan capacity of the old gym is quite limited while in new gym seven or eight hundred people can easily be seated and crowds i 0f a thousat'd or more can be taken ; care Gf quite readily with very little j extra preparation. Due to the fact i that prices this year will be once more i on the popular level and that many more can easily be accommodated in ; the new gym, attendance records at the games this year are expected to j far surpass those of any previous with all fans. This year these season tickets will be good for eleven home games as follows: Nov. 2, Lapel, here; Nov. 11, Gaston, here; . . , r, .....I . , .

These tickets will be placed on sale the night of the AlumiS game and will be good for all home games on the regular schedule. HOGS MAY BE HOGS, BUT PUMPKINS ARE PUMPKINS. Fairmount vicinity is already noted as for the place where they raise real j hogs, but hogs are not the only things raised hereabouts. A short time ago The News recorded a pumpkit. weigh- t ing 534 pounds, and no soorA?r had this announcement been published until another gardner came h! with the report of a pumpkin tipping the scales at a few pounds more. But John T. Kimbrough, living east of town, holds the record so far. Saturday morning he brought to The News office a pumpkin weighing 60 pou.Ais, and placed it on display in The News office window. Mr. Kimbrough Saturday morning weighed six pumpkins from his patch the' total weight of which was 296 pounds. S-o-m-e pumpkins. NIH7S WANT ADS.
