The Stadium And Gymnasium When tlic drive for funds to insure completion of I lie Blylhcvillc liigli school stadium anil gymnasium begins Monday il will be well to vcmcmboi- thai, the project means more tlian : simply the possible advancement «>' continuation of football interest and activity at Blythcvillo high school. In fact, it is altogether possible that (lie ultimate benefit to be derived fi-om ihe structure will be reflected more in tlic physical education program that (he completion of the gymnasium will make possible than iii use of the stadium. Certainly the combination of the -gymnasium and stadium in one project ' is one that will provide dual advantages. Them is little that needs to bo said ' in support of the stadium. Those who have attended football games or other events at. stadia in other IbVvns and cities know the worth of such a structure. It will be worthwhile not only in caring for crowds that will attend grid• iron contests but on many oilier occasions, such as the outdoor Centennial program in May, 1980. It is something that the school has needed for a long time. We have been informed by school authorities that if, and when, thu stadium-gymnasium is completed, the school will offer a full physical education course for the first time. Credit will be given for the course, as it is in many high schools ovor 1 . the''eotih- try today. Probably the greates£'bene- ficiaries of such a program will he the girl students, At present no athletic activity is carried on by the school for girls. Blytlieville has been represented by girls' basketball teams ' at various times in the past but girls' baketball, under conditions such as have existed with the students forced to undergo their training and play their games away from the school, lias not been satisfactory. The gymnasium will be of sufficient sjze for a basketball court and will have provisions for (lie seating, in belter manner, of more spectators ihan can how be seated in the national guard armory where basketball' games arc )iow pJayed here. With the school having its own building, regardless of its agreeable use of the armory in the past, basketball will receive new impetus as a .school sport. three members of the high school staff °f teachers have degrees in phy- sical education'. A full program of physical activity will be carried on under direction of one or more o( these in- Htnidors. The construction of the stadium- gymnasium will require the labor of a substantial crew of WI'A workmen during the spring and summer months at leasl. Of the total cost of the project, $<l'l,133, more than $27,000 will be disbursed through labor payrolls. The remainder, almost § 17,000, will be spent for materials. Already on hand is approximately £2,000 hut ?7,500 more is needed to provide the necessary $9,500 contribution by tiie sponsors of the project to the cost. In issuing certificates of indebtedness tut a means of raising the necessary $7,500 it is Iho intention of the sponsors, the Ciiickasaw Athletic Club, a n (I co-operating clubs and organizations, together with school of- lidals, to redeem or pay off these cciiilicatcs with a portion of the gate receipts from football and basketball games. They will bear no interest and will not become payable until January 1, l'J-18. However, the trustee of funds for payment of the certificates will call for lenders of certificates annually in December and will proceed to retire those not tendered in numerical order with funds he may have on hand each year. The project' appears to be sound financially and should be self-liquidating, based, as it is, entirely on revenue cc'ili/icatcs. Hut a.sidc from the stability of the proposal from a business standpoint il represents an investment: in school facilities, in a definite civic contribution and in added improvement that JJI.vfhcvillo cannot afford to miss. Lets assure the completion of the stadium and gymnasium! feminitd Pauses It scons almost loo bad to see the Baker swindle finally exposed. For that hardy perennial has been fooling hundreds of Americans for 35 years. II is almost like an old friend, even though a false one. Now Postmaster General Fsu-ley/s sleuths of the postal inspection service have announced, finally and forever, that the Baker estate in which so many trustful ones have hoped to share, never existed. The whole scheme is fraudulent, and all the Bakers and Beckers who have kicked in a million and a half dollars in the hope of sharing in the non-existent but opulent Pennsylvania fortune have only the experience for their money. Of course that's something. The next' question is whether the extensive postal investigation, which searched the records of every county in Pennsylvania since J682, will really convince the hopeful "beneficiaries."' Belief in something ono wants desperately to believe is the hardest of all beliefs to kill. There is no inagic solution to Ihe condition of the railroads. ,-U. S. Senator Harry S.

She had always come back. The only thing lo do was lo humor her. Give her time. But that was where lie made his mistake.
