First lecture will be Tliui-sday night at Gray htill, to be followed by three other talks on succeeding Thursday evenings. The sjxrakers. it is apparent, are prominent men in their varying fields—far more prominent than customarily are found on lecture platforms in communities of this size. By co-operating with Manistee, Oadillac and other nearby cities, it has been possible to \vork out a plan of bringing them to this region for successive appearances in each of the co-operating cities. Keynote of international understanding, it has often been said, is: .Judge 1 not the motives of neighbors of other nations; seek rather to understand them. Thus the public forum series which starts Thursday night at Gray hall should prove a profitable and interesting exjwrience for local residents, one well deserving of their support. NEW TRAFFIC CODE We're more especially concerned with those of this particular area, but all of Michigan's 2,000,000 motorists will do well to recall that the state has a new traffic law which becomes effective Thursday, Sept. 28. Here, as a last-minute reminder to readers, is a quick summary: "Stop" signs mean STOP! Right-hand turns on red light are prohibited. If a green arrow is shown with the red light, vehicles may cautiously enter the intersection to make the movement indicated toy the arrow, tout must yield the right-of-way to other vehicles, and to pedestrians. A flashing red arrow with the red light means that vehicles must first stop 'before making the right turn. Pedestrians should cross streets on green light, although they may cross on red if they do not interfere with traffic. When crossing on the green they have the right-of-way over turning vehicles. Pedestrians must walk on the left side on rural highways, facing oncoming traffic. When sidewalks are provided, it is unlawful for pedestrians to,walk on the main traveled portion of the highway. : Tjventy-five miles per hour is the legal speed in both business and "residential sections in cities and villages unless signs indicate the speed has been increased by local authorities. Fifty miles per hour is the speed limit set up for trailer combinations when the towing vehicle is a passenger car. It is unlawful to straddle lane lines on three and four lane highways or to drive into the far left lane of a three-lane highway or to cross the center line of a four-lane highway. All vehicles should be parked parallel to and within 12 inches of the right-hand curb unless angle parking spaces are provided. Except on one-way streets, vehicles shall not be parked at the left curb. i Two-wheeled vehicles shall not toe ridden more than two i atoreast. Packages must not toe. carried which prevent the rider from keeping tooth hands on the handlebars. No person shall be carried upon a toicycle or motorcycle other than upon a firmlv attached regular seat. Hitching to other vehicles by those on bicycles skates, coasters or toy vehicles is unlawful. CHAPTER FORTY-ONE SHOT ROGERS kept having to tell himself that patience is golden. >Ie looked 1 of ten at the remuda, or glanced hungrily at saddled horses that stood near Luis Escobar's main tents. He told himself that he could run to one of those horses and escape on it before any of the outlaw band knew what was happening; but he also told himself that he was lying. The swarthy men who called themselves soldiers were in a measure just what they purported to be. They could fight. They had guns, and they could shoot They would love nothing better than the chance to kill him. That he hadn't already been killed was something of a miracle, he realized. When the men first surprised him with a challenge in the dark, he had offered no resistance. That had saved his life even though it had infuriated him. To have snapped for his own pistol and tried to fight his way clear then would have been worse than foolish, for he could not see his enemies and they could see him. So when they had commanded "Manos arriba!" he had obeyed—hands high. This morning after breakfast Shot had been brought before the commandante himself. Luis Escobar had been sitting in his headquarters tent, but had arisen and bowed formally, grinning in sarcasm. "Senor!" he greeted Shot. "Wai- come to these camp of Luis Angelito Fernand de Messila y Escobar!" The greeting surprised Shot Again. Even though a dozen or more armed orderlies and others stood around, and two more escorted him from his makeshift jail, Shot slowly smiled at the man who now held him captive. If he bucked, he told himself, he'd just be locked up or tied, or both. Maybe he could outsmart Escobar. "How are you?" Shot replied, affably. "Nice morning." "You lak thees weather, eh? What you do here?" "That's what I'm wondering. What have you imprisoned me for, mister?" "Como se llama usted?" "Sorry, You'll have to speak English. I'm not used to this country." "Where you leeve ? Where Is your home? What you do in Mexico?" "Oh. Why, I'm from Wyoming." Shot was thinking fast now. "I, uh, well, I had a friend down here at Bisbee, and he invited me down o go javelina hunting, sir. That's what I was doing, hunting javalina —your wild hogs, see?" "Uhm?" Escobar's eyebrows lifted. "Nobody hont thee Javalina on foot, without rifle." "That's all right. I'm green In this country, I guess. I got off my horse to get . r i drink back there at a river and damm if the fool horse didn't run away from me. I hunted around and found tracks where some cows and horses had been driven, so I followed. Gosh, mister, I never had no idea anybody'd think I was an enemy, and lock me up this way. Is it all right? Can I go now?" Luis Escobar didn't answer him except to laugh loudly. "What's funny?" Shot asked. "You are fonny, senor. You have thee good time lying, but three, four my men, they know you, Senor Rogers. You brag muchisimo, how you catch Luis Escobar! You leeve at Brazee rancho, then come here!" Escobar's laughter and geniality had vanished in an instant, and he arose from his chair in the vehemence of this speech. Shot knew his bluff had failed. "All right, kid," Shot sighed. "Your deal." "You make all thees talk about hont thee javalina—hah! You hont Luis Escobar! So! You have find heem, aqui! Now you work for heem!" Shot didn't answer. He knew that it would be stupid to antagonize the man. He just listened while Escobar ordered the soldiers to take Shot to the cooks to help with the menial tasks. "There's just one point I maybe ought to mention." Shot tried to be casual with it lest the anger in him now show too much. "Holding an American citizen this way gets into, uh, international business, Escobar. Mexico City and Washington, they might take up for me. And—" "Vamos al diablo!" snapped Luis Escobar. "Get out, pronto!" Shot's first task wasn't a difficult one. He had to skin a steer that somebody brought in for food. It was a job he had c'one before and on the whole he rather liked it, for it kept his hands and feet free and gave him an opportunity to study his surroundings. Actually meeting Luis Escobar face to face was interesting to Shot. Having sworn to kill or capture Escobar, he naturally was keen to see the man. The tables had turned, but he at least had part of his wish fulfilled. "I'll just lay low and pla my hand carefully," Shot told himself. 'If a showdown comes, maybe I'll still get Escobar before they get me." He reasoned that be could prob- ably snatch a pistol from some soldier's holstei and shoot Escobar before they could stop him. He'd have that much accomplished, even though he paid with his life, as he surely would. Maybe he could even use the butcher knife given him to skin and carve the steer. He would prefer, as a matter of pleasure, to have a little setto with Escobar with his fists first. Escobar was something of a grandee, as many another Mexican "general" has been. A man .somewhat shorter than Shot, he was several years older, quite dark of skin, coal black hair—probably had a lot of Indian blood in him. Shot realized —and was rather well dressed in a military uniform of no particular heritage. Shot was unacquainted with uniforms, but he thought Escobar's looked more like a naval officer'^ than a general's; there were heavy gold or gilt doo-dads on the shoulders and on the breast, and there was a shiny sword at Escobar's side. "I'd like to get my hands on that sword just once!" Shot mused. Somehow that thought interested him deeply. Escobar would probably come around some time to lord it over his captive again. Maybe at the noon meal time. Shot could appear crestfallen, scared, then maybe edge over close and— No, that was crazy thinking. Planning to kill a man with his own sword. Why, there'd be eight or ten quick-trigger thugs near him, of course, and Escobar's own hands wouldn't be tied. No, he'd have to figure out something else. He kept thinking of Lorena and that further angered him. He hoped and prayed she could take care of herself, especially that she'd have sense enough to trek right on back home. Probably she would. They'd be plenty of howling; then an expedition, maybe even with American soldiers from Fort Huachucha. But Escobar would escape anyway, having a small army of his own and plenty of spies. It was when Shot had finished butchering two steers and was put to carrying fire wood that a better idea came to him. He was tending an outdoor cook fire, splitting wood with an axe, when a bugler sounded what he knew to be mess call. He figured that Escobar would come out then to check up on him and laugh at him some more. Shot gripped the axe he held. "Let him come!" he whispered to himself. "I won't have to snatch his sword. An axe is better than * sword any day!" (To Be Continue*!) THE HUNTER TRIO guest, Mrs. J.

PEPTIC ULCER, or, as it is now so generally called, ulcer of the stomach, is essentially a disease of younger people. In a large series of patients, most of the cases among women occurred between the ages of 15 and 25, and in men from 25 to. 35. When the symptoms of ulcer occur in elderly people, or, indeed, the symptoms of any stomach disorder, the suspicion of cancer or gall bladder trouble, not ulcer, is aroused. But there is a type of ulcer that is not uncommon among elderly people; it is named by Soper. "arterio- Dr. Clendening will answer questions of general interest only, and then only through hi* column. sclerotic ulcer." It is small and the usual symptoms of ulcer, such as hunger pain and relief by food, are absent. Instead, the patient complains of "gas" and vague indigestion. It is unquestionably due to primary damage of the blood vessels— the ulcer itself is secondary. Different Treatment The treatment is different from ordinary ulcer. The diet should not consist of the high caloric, high cholesterol regimen. For such cases j» special diet list has been formu lated, and it has proved very efficacious. The trouble, under this diet, heals within four to six weeks, as a rule. The diet is protective in character, with a low cholesterol content Alkalis, such as soda bicarbonate which are used so often in the common type, of ulcer, are not em ployed. Sometimes small doses of thyroid extract can be given. The diet is M follows: flr»o/c/aat—One glass cool water pon arising (drink slowly); cream Wheat, farina, corn flakes; break It food in juice of .stewed fruit ' *''' ' \ in orangetyuice; grape WMT honey; toast and " Miss Dorothy Heysett and | Miss Esther Skoog left for East Lansing to resume their stud- > ies as a Junior and Senior, re- | spectively, at Michigan State college. 15 Years Ago Proposed additions to the I Ludington high school building were presented to the school board for approval.

Answer—Cancer has been proved not to be contagious by every means known. People who live with cancerous people do not get it. Surgeons and nurses who touch cancer tissues do not get it.
