The following rules will help you solve your tire problems: When buying tires, seek quality rather than price. Do . not use a substitute for air in pneumatic tires. When you buy gas, see if your tires need inflating. As good oil saves engine wear, so does true wheel alio nment save tire wear. Stop your car without using your breaks when possible. Watch the cuts and breaks in your tires as carefully as you do your engine, as this will save you worry, time and expense. E.O.Ellis Auto Supply Co.

Holubar has his own ideas as to how the strife between the Male and the Female of the species ought to be composed, and he does not hesitate-to state it in terms of dramatic situations; but acceptation of the theories may be granted or withheld by the picture-patron without interfering in in the least with the thrill and tug and vigor of the real, vital drama of the play. INDICTMENTS RETURNED AGAINST FAIRMOUNT BOYS The Delaware county grand jury has returned indictments on the charge of robbery against Cecil Payne, Ray McKinley and Alva Lynch, the three Fairmount men. who were arrested charged with holding up and robbing, the proprietor of a grocery store at Wheeling, Delaware county.

This is a men's singing company of distinction featuring a spe ciat arrangement of the solos and choruses from "The Chimes of Normandy." This company comes most highly recommend ed, and it is said the entertainment given by them is one of an unusual high order of merit. All of the pre ceeding humbers given in this course during) the winter have been of much merit and music lovers of Fairmount are Unanimous in their praise of the efforts of the Eastern Star and the Masons to bring to Fairmount attrac tions that are worthy of the most lib eral patronage. The entertainments have all drawn full houses, and it is predicted that the Normandy Singers will not prove an exception.

Ed- Letters to the Editor MORE ABOUT TAXATION Editor The News: It seems hard to explain why most men seem to have two personalities, public and private. 1'ersonally a man having surplus funds on hand would apply them to meet future needs, and thereby economize; but usually that same man in public office, and having a surplus of public funds on hand, will proceed to find some new line of expense to absorb the funds, instead of applying them to future needs, and thereby economize for the public. Instance, the $72,000 surplus in our county treasury. It should be used to lighten the tax burdens of the fu- turef but our officials Beem to believe in taking no thought for the future, No doubt it will have all sunk out of piKnt poon aml nothing to show for it exccpt some ruined pike, like we now have in the east part of town.

This super-production is said to mark the last word in richness of presentation and investiture. That it will nrove the screen sensation of - - - 1922 is predicted by the leading mo- feet of film went into its construction Batteries of cameras were directed on some of the massive scenes, yet the completed film is in only nine reels. In other words, the film was boiled down to less than two per cent. of the total length "shot." This means that scene after scene of start -! ling beauty and dramatic piquancy fiashes on the screen in tense sequence. The action, or, tempo, as the picture producers call it, is breathtaking in its effect. Dorothy Phillips one of the few great emotional stars of the screen, is starred in "Man-Woman-Marriage tt was produced by Allen Holubar, is presented by Albert A. Kaufman and released by Associated First National Pictures. Inc. Sub-titled "The Love Woman' this intimate exposition of social relations of man and woman promises to set tongues to wagging over never settled questions. Holubar brings to his dramatic argument the force bl historic truth, lie renders biology popular and finds romance in the Neolithic Agte. As a personified beauty, Woman dances through the entire plot, passing gracefully from age to age and ever returning to the present to continue the plot's supreme purpose of entertainment. An excited world Is revealed in the third period of the story j society as it has - developed (or descended) In social circles Is pitilessly stripped to four view. Its pretentions and Its masque are shown to be just what they are.
