Ayres Placed Temporarily at Head of School Which Will Go Ahead. Rumors of important developments at Taylor university, Upland, which have been current for several weeks, j reached a crisis Friday, in the resig nation of Dr. James M. Taylor, as president of the institution. R. A inrr;tn f;. . . k, v, . . , president of the board, announces that the school will be maintained under the same standards and there would be no interruption of the regular program. Mr. Morrison says Taylor, beyond the problems confronting! every educational institution, is in excellent condition and will continue its improvements and program of development. Dean A. B. Ayres, of the faculty, who has long been identified with Taylor university, will be at the head of the school. As to the election of a president to succeed Dr. Taylor, Mr. Morrison of the trustee board says some time will likely ensue before the election takes place. The board has no one in mind. Dr. Taylor, it was said had achieved fine results at the school and his re- president has doubled the enrollment j and brought to Taylor a reputation nation wide in scope. It is said, how- ever, that ur. layior has had wide demands for his services as a lecturer. He has, it is said, received large offers. It is further stated the educator has had broad ambitions for the school and has been anxious to achieve even a greater growth than that which ensued. Members of the board of trustees said there was no friction of any kind. !with Taylor in the future. It had been reported Dr. Westlake resigned several weeks ago, following a dif- ference of opinion, Mr. Morrison said there had been no differences, nor any disputes in the faculty of any kind, beyond possible questions which continually come up in every school. The 350 students of the school met with the board of trustees Friday an(j pledged their unqualified support.' member of the board said the feel- ingr was excellent. Taylor college, it was said, would go ahead with a splendid outlook. Dr. Taylor has been president since June 15, when he took the school it had 219 students. The school has doubled its attendance since that time. Mrs. Taylor has been acting as sec retary to the president and will accompany Dr. Taylor on his lecture tour. Dr. Taylor is to speak before the Kiwanis club at its meeting tonight. REVIVAL MEETINGS CLOSE AT THE FRIENDS CHURCH Rev. Lewis McFarland closed a two weeks' series of evangelistic services Sunday at the Friends church and has returned to his home in High Point, N. C. Earl Folger, singing evangelist, who assisted in the meetings, will return today to his home in Shirley. The meetings were well attended throughout, the Sunday meetings proving exceptionally gpod. During the two weeks, twenty-eight persons took decisive steps toward a christian life and the meetings were a decided success, a benefit which will be felt, not only by the Friends church, but throughout the community. TELEPHONE COMPANY RE-ELECTS OFFICERS The directors of the Citizens Telephone company met in the company's ! office here Friday and re-organized by the re-election of the old officers for the ensuing year, as follows:.

The rally made by the visiting team was little less than phenomenal. The second half was especially hard fought, Fairmount scored first but a free throw by Price tied the count. Thus was the score tied and untied with the teams battling relentlessly at all times. With five minutes to play, Summitville held a lead of two points. Craw had to be taken out because of injuries at that time and soon after Summitville added two more from the field and one from the foul line and the game was over. Price was the star of the Summit- ville team, chalking up a total of 20 points.

Craw, three and Payne, two. Williams and Flan- agan both put up a good defensive game at all times. The chief difficul- ty the locals had was in getting the offensive to work properly, but this, of course, was due partly to the al- most impregnable Summitville de- fense.

Referee, Hale. j Chiefly due to inability to connect, with free throws, the Fairmount sec- onds lost a hard fought game to the Summitville seconds, 14 to 12. The Summitville seconds obtained a lead at the start on a couple of lucky long shots, taking the locals by surprise, after that it was a battle royal with the locals gradually creeping up on the rival squad. The last five minutes were especially thrilling, with the Fairmount squad gaining an edge on the visitors, the final pistol alone cheating the Black and Gold out of a victory.
