Mr. Lyons says that Indiana roads . .... were lfover in better condition for; heavy emergency traffic than now. There are less than 25 detours on ap- proximately 3300 miles in the state highway system of roads a condition not equaled in any state in the Uiion where extensive highway development IS in PrOCrOSS. with iir. i.vnns rainira oul iiieil 500 motor trucks available at once, and estimating the average haul would be six miles, these trucks could haiMle 8,000 tons of freight each day. In other words the average capacity per truck is 3-tons, giving tne ouu cars 1500 tons capacity. Estimating! each truck would travel 30 miles each day, this fleet for emergency relief represents a means of handling 45.000 tons of freight if only moved oik mile a day. Tonnage handled would natur- a v be lessened as mileage increased. . ..fv. to euiei nvin.v nami.

ORCHESTRA SCOPES HIT WITH AUDIENCE First Number of Concert Course by Masons and Eastern Star Pronounced Success I A large and most appreciative audience filled the high school auditorium on last Thursday night and was delightfully entertahJed by the Festival Orfhestr the first number in the series of concerts to be given during the fall and winter under the auspices rf tViA Masonic and Eastern Star lodges. The comparjy presented aj program of standard and popular music varied enough to suit the tastes of all, and each number was enthusi astically applauded, the musicians be- obliged to respond to repeated en- chores. These composing the orchestra proved themselves to be musicians of the highest skill, and their playitfe was pronounced to rank with the very best ever heard in Fairmount, and when that is said, much is said. The program of the evening included the beautiful Gondola Melodies, which were decidedly delightful with the per fect rendition given by the musicians. The next number in the course will be the Chicago Concert Players on Nov. 24. INTERM EDI ATE C. E. HOLDS MONTHLY MEETING. The members of the Intermediate Christian Endeavor of the FrierMs church last Thursday evening held their monthly business meeting which was followed by a social session. The meeting was held in the basement of the church and ati apple social was the diversion of the social hour in which games and contests formed a very happy feature of the evening's enter- tainment, and refreshments consist- ing of apple pie, cheese, punch were served. and fruit ! ! have the opportunity to attend an Art Exhibit, the first one to be held in tllis community in maiy years. The Mass. The dates of the exhibit will be Nov. 2, 3, and 4, arAl the pictures be displayed in the high school auditorium and art room. The pro- coeds from the exhibit are to be used purchasing new pictures for the assembly room and the new class rooms- rr-l. ,1 .... nis collection oi pictures wnich lo- cal people will have opportuniy to see is ai unusually large one and contains only the very best reproductions of the masterpieces of art of the different countries and periods.

It is a part of the school work to inculcate the qualities cf culture atd refinement in the children through whatever means may be at uijiisai, a. ti me art exploit is only one means of acconi.ili.-h!ng this. The wholesome and refining iiu'unce of pictures of the right sort on the school walls is lAnv recognized as one of the most valuable mean's of securing this end. The funds for purchas ing such pictures, as well as the opportunity to make a selection from a number of is se- lon. The high school art class under the direction of Miss Mary Sample, head of the music aiAI art department, will have charge of the exhibit. For some time the members of the art class have been studying the various great artists and their masterpieces so that each member of the class will be prepared to explain and tell many interesting facts about each picture in the exhibit as well as about its aifd author of each picture as well as some interesting facts about it. Some entertainment will be furnished each evening to supplement the exhibit. This will probably consist of music by the high school orchestras as well as by the choruses possibly in addition to some special art poses atAl groupings. An art exhibit is a big educational factor in any community. It is only one of several big things being put across by the students of the local high school this year, but this, like the other undertakings, is something deserving of the interest and support of everyone in the community and everyone should make it a point to be present at least one of the evenings on which the exhibit is being held. Detailed announcement regarding the program for the evenings during the exhibit will be made later. EDUCATIONAL DAY AT LITTLE RIDGE. Next Sunday will be Educational Day at Little Ridge church, and plans are being made for a day of unusual interest. Rev. Enos Harvey of Nob- lesville will speak at the morning ser vice, and people who once taught in Liberty township will have charge of the day's program, which will begirf with Sunday school at 9:45. Teachers of the township, Academy and high school graduates, colleges and university students will be recognized in a special way. All are invited. held.

Fairmount high school this year will have a basket ball five that will make all opponents sit up and take notice. The decisive victory of the team over the Alumni last Wednesday night was a revelation as to the material Coach Walters has to pick his winning five from this year, and it has been remarked by those who are in a positioiJ to know basket ball players when they have a chance to see them in action, and who are not attached to the high school faculty or team, that the high school this year will have a team that will be able to give them all a run for their money, not only for county aiAI district honors, but should be in the running for the state championship. And that's what the Fairmount fans are pulling for the state champioifehip. W. C. T. U. MEETS WITH LEORA BOGUE. The W. C.

In addition to the regular routine program of the society, reports of the state convention recently held at Elkhart were giv- en Mrs. Emma Mittank and Mrs Mary Dicks who represented the local TTrKon at the convention. These re ports were very complete and proved both an uplift and an incentive to the Fairmount Union. Charles Dean afld family of Hartford City spent Sunday with David Jones and family.

REPUBLICANS WILL HAVE BIG MEETING Announcement Made for Gathering of Clans at Telbax, Hall on Next Monday Night Fairmount Republicans intend to make .the last week of the local cam paign a lively one, and to start things off the committee has announced a big meetirfe to be held in Telbax hall on next Monday night, Oct. 31, at which there will be an abundance of music and "good things to eat, in addition to speeches by several promin-eiA; speakers as well as local speakers. Candidates are getting busy and all have been actively at woi-k looking after their interests during the oast week, and indications are that the time between now arAd the day of election will see some of the hardest work done known in a local campaign for a long time. "Issues" are not being talked much, but it is said that there are "issues" and the fight for victory at the polls will be fought to a fir.'ish. The fact that the women have an equal voice with the men in the coming election makes figuring on the result something of an uncertainty as compared with former years. ! NEW WrATER LINE FOR HENLEY AVENUE. Street Commissioner Isaac Malone is in charge of the laying of a two inch water line, which commences on Henley avenue, goes west to the alley in the rear of Mill street, then travels north several blocks, completing the j circuit. This new line, it is thought j will greatly improve the service in that part of town. ' i i 1 t 1 will at all times have the active co- ' operation and assistance of the club, Kiwanis emblems are appearing on the windows of the stores the pro- prietors of which are Kiwaris members. FORMER FAIRMOUNTERS DO WrELL IN CALIFORNIA. Mrs. Sherman E. Kirk, of Porter- ville, Cal., sends to The News a copy of the Porterville Daily (Messenger, a special edition consisting, of 24 pages in which the merchants of the city unite in advertising a three days merchandising offering of exceptional values. The idea was orginated by the newspaper, the merchants joining in and aiding in putting over the biggest trade event ht the history of the city. Among the advertisers is noted traffic demand that may arise. According to highway officials it is difficult to estimate the number of motor trucks in this state available in case of a railroad tieup. "The excellence of Indiana highways has created a peculiar situation in that there is not a day passes but we receive inquiries from owners wishing hauling contracts," Mr. Lyons says. "I believe that many hundreds of trucks are available for transporting emergency freight upon short notice providing conditions demand such ac- itton. I am positive that our state hie-hwavs are in condition to care for this potential heavy traffic.
