J 1 FANS LOOKING FORWARD TO GAME FRIDAY NIGHT WITH INTENSE INTEREST Unless Howard County Lads Can be Defeated Hope for Victory Over Marion Next Wednesday Night Go Below Par, Wi'h Slump in Playing Not Clucked.

On that evening the Kokomo quintet will come to this city for a contest with the local crew and fans are looking forward to this coming contest as one cf equal interest with the Muncie game played just a couple of weeks ago. Kokomo has a mighty good team this year and has already won quite a few notable victories. Just a week ag0 the Kokomo team succeeded ill winning from Anderson by the score of 17 to 16 and local fans know that Anderson always puts out one of the strongest teams irf this section of the state.

Coach Walters has been putting the Black and Gobi quit'iet through some mighty rigfrous workouts this week and progress as been satisfactory in every way. Scrimmages have ben hold every afternoon or evening and an improvement has beer,' noticed in every department s( that the Fair-mount team now is hitting the fastest stride of at.'y time dining the season. Definite training rules have beer.' laid down with the instructions that these must be observed to the letter. Consequently in view of these facts the local warriors should be able to hit a mighty fast stride Friday night and hold the pace during every minute of play. It will be one of the hard battles of the season but with . 1 , . . a 1 Gold basket tossers working in presert form the Kokomo artists will have no easy time of it. Everyone remembers what a hard fight Muncie had a couple of weeks ag, to carry off a four point victory and since that time the Fairmount lads have made a decided improvement.

This because of the ignorance of the native Mexican, and his disnelination for work when living may be had with out work. He gave his hearers an insight into the political conditions in Mexico such as they probably never realized before, showin'g how the Mexican all his life is taught in church and such schools as they have to hate tjie American and the United States, and because of this Mexico will ever j be a menace to the United States i this nation will have to reckon with ; oi-'cil, through the work of the foreign missions, Mexico is educated, cleansed physically and uplifted through the Christianization of the people. Dr. Taylor illustrated his points by taking the work of the "foreign missions hi Mexico alone, and narrowed it down to the work of one mission in Mexko, and, showing the wonderful work being done ever' there by this one mission of the Methodist church, gave his hearers food for thought as to what may be hoped for from the work of all the missions sustained by all the- various churches througihout the world. His talk forced home to every one the great importance of the work of the foreign missionary society, and the great need for redoubled effort for sustairfing it and promoting its work.
