OFFICIAL CALL For The Thirty-fifth Annual Convention of the Alabama Sunday School Association The Sunday School workers of Alabama in all denominations are hereby called to meet at Birmingham on Wed nesday. Thursday, and Friday. April 24th. 25th. and 2&h, 1918, i the ' Tliirtr-fifth Annual Convention of the Alabama Suuilay school association. The present World War const it trtes -a challenge to the forces of. religious edaeation, and it is tbe privilege and duty et the Sunday school as tbe greatest existing ajfency for popular religious education ts meet this chal lenge. . It is the task of our nation with its allies to "make the werld safe for de- Bioeraey''; bat it is the task of tbe Sunday sehoe), as the teaching service f the church, together with its allies, the home and the pnblie school, to "make democracy safe for the world." To accom polish this task, nttelligenee and godliaess, edscatiea- and religion must be made the eon men possession, of all people. Religious education today is therefore no longer a merely sectarian or denominational question. It is a community problem, a national responsibility, and only through the eo-epe ration of all Christian forces caa we aieac-sre op .to our opportunity. We, therefore, call upon all persons interested in the Sunday Behoof, in religious education, and in the moral and spiritual ideals of our State, to assemble in this convention. The Alabama Sunday school association, being a voluntary, unofficial organization of Sunday action) workers, rsprenenM and embodies the same ideals of democracy and popular control in the field of religious education that the American Nation represents in the field of National Government. The attendance, therefore, at this convention is not limited to dflically appointed de Wales, Jbot is opm to c pi-Mi?, '? rrLc :, 1 00 pbr .AR. register will be accepted as delegates.

United States food administration, has issued a letter to all the packers of Chicago urging them 'not to buy bogs from the farmers at less than an average of $15.50 per 100 pounds." So said the papers of a recent date. - There is a fine irony in this request, in view of the present i "trust-busting"-activities ot Mr. Francis J. Heney. Heney is breaking open safes and making sensational charges in an effort to convict the packers of the deadly sin of having acted in common. While he is doing so, the government, thru the food administration, asks the packers please to act in common. It is y the same old paradox that comes from the attempt to label an economic necessity as economic sin. But the point now is that it is again demonstrated that while Mr. Heney is trying to dig out evidence of an ancient combination, the government is asking a present combination in order to win the war. And winning the war is the most vital need that faces us, far more vital than the need of reviving the art of muckraking. The Chicago Evening Post. Seven Oaks.

AtaflDoabt EOT Fired Over 200,000 Shots From One Gun : In John W; Garretf, Colorado Springs, Col., boasts of one of the ablest of Uucle Sam's great trap-gun army. -V-- .C-? Garrett not only, can shoot just about as well as anyone in the United States, for the world, but, incidentally, he can shoot quicker. ' There are many -who ' believe Mrs. Adolph. Topperweia, the only woman professional trapshot, can load, shoot and unshell quicker . than any other shooter, but it is doubtful if the fair Mrs. Topp can work any quicker than Garrett. -' , . , The recent publication of trapshoot-ing records brought out many meritori ous performances that were not listed, and several of these were to the credit of the Colorado Springs trapshot.' The one that he points to with ere' dit toak place at Colorado City, Col., on Christmas day, 1902. On this oc casion he broke 200 targets straight in 30 minutes and 13 seconds. Garrett has broken 99x100 targets in the last event of the Past ice Gun club progiamme, and was requested by oth er shooters to see how many he rould break against time, consistent with a good score. Shooting alone, in strings of 25, five from each peg, the same as if he was in a squad, handling his own gun and .shells, and loading the same as if he was, in competition, Garrett broke the first 100 straight in 16 minutes and 46 seconds, and 'the second 100 iu 13 minutes and 27 seconds. There was no time taken out, the time being tak en from the firing ofthe first shot un til the last target was broken. The first 1000 clay target match event had Garrett as a contestant, and he won. This match took place at Colorado Springs, on August 6. 1904. Garrett broke 965 targets, and J. H Roh re r broke 940. The actual shoot ing time was two hours and four min utes, and the elapsed time was four hours and 13 minutes. Each broke 100 straight in practice before the event, and -Garrett broke 96x100 in an open event following. .The men each shot at 975 targets with one gun. deciding after each had shot 25 targets to use one gun while the other cooled. Quite naturally. this took a little more time. - On June 8, 1901, Garrett shot a 100-target match with Walter Shem- mell. at Colorado Springs, and broke 100 straight, which, he thinks, is a world's record for an individual match. In the grand American handicap, at Chicago, 111., on June 21, 1910, Gar rett broke 80 singles and 10 pairs 100 straight in a field of 56 profss-sionals and 173 amateurs. This is a world's record. Garretj; attributes his success during his 20 years of competition to sticking to one gnn. one shell and one powder. He has fired more than 200,000 shots from his solid-frame shotgun, and hopes to fire that many more.- Age-Herald, Oscar Gray is Appointed Washington," D. C. March 17. The appointment of Congressman Oscar Gray to be a member of the Con gressional Committee to have charge ofthe coming campaign of the Demo crats, is. considered by the members of the Alabama delegation to be a dis tinct compliment to the First District Congressman. Tbe Democrats, in making un the list of men who would direct the na tional fight for the Democrats, knew that the Democrats party this fall would face a crucial fight, for the Republicans not only have now practically as many members of the House as the Democrats, but they are even hop ing for a clean sweep in tbe doubtful districts north of the Ohio. Much progress has been made in cementing the divisions that have existed in the Republican, party, and the leaden are hopeful that they can elect enough Republican Congressmen to absolutely control ibe next House. Realizing the hard fight before them, and the necessity of having a congress which would stand by the president, - the Democrats named Mr. Gray for important duties on the Congressional Campaign Committee of the House. Mr. Gray, who enjoys an excellent standing in the House, was chosen by a unanimous vote. , . Ii-f The Wv.e TOO Bales at 35 Cents Per Pound Brings $125,000. Montgomery, Ala., March, 22. All records since Civil war times were broken here today when 35 cents per pound was paid for a round lot of 700 bales of cotton. Tbe amount involved was about $125,000. A local warehouse firm was the seller and George H. McFadden & Bra, of Philadelphia, the buyers. 4 ' ; ' Saving the Farm Waste ' It is said that a farmer near Collins- vilhi has sold $400 worth of cotton from cracked bolls. ; , ; " ' " The bolls were those that failed to open and Were slightly cracked. Us ually they are plowed under and are of no value. - Lately, however, it has been found that the bolls can be pick ed and hulled, much like peas, and the cotton ginned out Tbe Btaple, having been protected, is perfectly white and clean. Some say,that this is the first time in their experience that this cracked cotton was not stained, however. The Collinsville . man picked every cracked boll on his place, and the cotton ginned from them was sold for from 15 to 20 cents." The above clipping from tho Gadsden Daily Times-News contains it les son to farmers, the principle of which may well be extended to tle conserva tion of other farm products. : Many a farm runs at a loss or at a reduced profit because advantage is not taken of the many opportunities to convert waste into profit. The practise of saving has added millions to the income of many industrial enterprises ami would also add materially to the value of farm products. In the south each year, for example, thousands of carloads of sweet potatoes have gone to waste through lack of facilities for curing and Storing. Proper preparation for the saving this year of such waste is good business. Each farm has its peculiar condit ions, and each farmer ovs it to ' himself and to the nation to make proper safeguards against the waste that has hitherto prevailed. As the motto is, among some farmers, "We have made it; let's save it." Mobile Register. ' Mule and Horse Twins. A farmer near Eola, Missouri, has a set of twins .the like of which few persons outside of stockmen have ever heard of. They are twin colts, one a mule and the other a horse. As shown in the picture, they are three days old. The explanation for such a freak of nature is very simple and easily understood by stockmen, and yet tb.ere are few who have ever seen such specimens in the animal line. H. E. Zimmerman in "Our Dumb Animals." Our Soldiers are Well Paid. By comparison with the other sol diers in this great war. the boys from the good old U. S. are mighty well paid. This is the way it runs so far as this paper has been published. The pay mentioned is for a full year: French, $20.00; German. $38.00; British. $89.00; U. S.. $360.00. Citronelle Call.
