"Jonesboro could get back into the running by polishing off Blytheville Friday night.

The halfback took .two steps to the rear and to the right. Toby Palmer, wingback, went barely across the line of scrimmage drifted out to the right, and yelled for the ball. Ljppe, Krouse, and the left guard, who pulled out of the 1'ne, protected the passer. • Dickens faked a pass to Palmer While Patriler turned sharply to his left and cut down the. field, both Tennessee ends did likewise, apparently expecting the pass. The right end generally was suspscted as. the receiver. But as Dickens looked straight ahead after faking a pass to Palmer, he rifled the pigskin 'just in behind the defensive left half, where Palmer was by that time. The play caught Jack (The Scooter) Alexander of Duke flatfooted. Palmer took an 18-yard toss and ran 30 yards for the touchdown. "Nextfb Advertising Matter "it; iuu-> uuicnica every member of SALEM.

THERE used to be a favovite phrase of advertisers. They asked to have their advertisements placed "next to reading matter" in the belief that such a position would assure more attention. But today the editor might well ask to have his news item placed "next to advertising matter," .for very definitely the advertisements have a tremendous reader following. Today's advertisements win eager attention because they help people buy intelligently, quickly, without waste of time, and get full value for the money spent. That is the great function of advertising—to j guide you swiftly and surely to wise, economical buying. The best advertisement is always the one that gives you-the facts you want—simply, honestly, without exaggeration. ill Now located at Southeast Corner Walnut and Second ADDING MACHINE & TYPEWRITER SERVICE BUREAU 1>OX HOWARDS, Proprietor niakw of rebuilt.Typewriters, id.linf Machines anrl Calcnlator, Repairing—ra rts—Ribbons Phont 71
