REASON FOR THE WEEK Designated as "Fire Prevention Week", the jveriod Starting Sunday and extending through next Saturday, Oct: 8 to 14 inclusive, has a two-fold worthy purpose: Namely, to impress on the public mind the enormous cost involved in fire wasfe year after year, and, secondly, to enlist co-operation of all elements of a community in bringing about actual r/edu,c,tion of fire waste, not only during Fire Preyention Wjeek but throughout the 51 other weeks of the year,"•>;•;"...-.,.. u '; .,.,.-. .-.. Official records, gathered accurately for many years, show that Fire Prevention week pays big dividends in re- duce(h;fi)re|losses./A;survey, covering a five-year period, shojiW| aict|al retfuciiort of 43 percent in fire losses during Prevention week, the week before and the week following. .... What would happen if the same prevention spirit could be s|vReft<ifover; the entire year? As with automobile acci- deni^Jj;l|i,e prevention is a slow educational process, fostered i by justssuch events as next.week's special observance. Fire Prevention Week should be the occasion for as corfrpMe an inventory as possible of the community's exposure to the hazard of fire, as revealed in its three-fold aspect: The individual in his home, his business and, final- lyjih; fils community. .,In. Ludington next week, starting with a special dem- oristration Sunday of the city's fine new truck equipment, as in past years the program will call for inspection of places of business by members of the fire department. Also there will be the annual school drills and inspection, in charge of Fire Chief George Barber. Fire Prevention Week, of course, should be something more than a show of merely passing interest to the public. Actual objective of the campaign must be constantly kept in mind, if the public-spirited effort that goes into the work is to be made reallv resultful. THOSE NEW LIGHTS Friday night indicated again that no community facility in Ludingtou is more impressive than Oriole field with its present equipment for night playing of football games. What a picture it is, as a person approaches the field. Looks ike the Xew York fair itself. Ludington unquestionably has one of the finest, most used, most complete recreational setups in Michigan. It is a'great pleasure to ^observe the interest that has been taken in its development. If the community as a whole could exhibit a tenth of the co-operation and spirit which its young people, players, musicians arid, students display on the field, what a would be!- = ; : Injury Toll Is High By LOGAN CLENDENING, M.

I still think that football," as it has developed in America, is the stupidest wid most boring game to watch, and the most dangerous, least skilful and least remunerative game for the player.

Rhoda. CHAPTER TWO " THE SOUND of those spiteful words: "If yor have stared quite long enough, you may drive on," so •tattled me that I jumped violently and, of course, clashed my gears v/ith a raucous grinding as I cast- one' backward glance over my shoulder. Inside the picket fence, so close she could have stretched out her hand and touched me, stood a woman. She was close to six feet tall, thin to the point of emaciation, with haggard lined face, cold brown eyes and the sourest mouth I ever had seen. She was certainly weaned on something much more acidulous than a mere pickle. Her stringy neck rose from a ruffle of sad-looking lace and her long clawlike fingers gripped the tops of two pickets as she glared at me. Her entire atmosphere yelled Little America, and I ''rove away from there in a hurry. Just beyond the spite fence was the driveway to Hill House. As I turned in through the wide gateway—Hill House, too, has its white picket fence—I cast another glance over my shoulder. Miss Ivy, still gripping the pickets, btoou looking after me. I knew I was In the Newcomb-Peake feud for good now, for I had added insult to injury by going to her sister's inn after laughing at Miss Ivy's architectural monstrosity. I didn't care. After the close view of her that I had I was perfectly willing to remain on her black list forever. As I braked the car to a stop and looked around, it was eas> to see how Hill House, as Rhoda had said had once been the exact cwin to the cottage beyond the spite fence. From the front It still looked the same, was, in fact, the same shape and size, b«t ells, gables, porches and semi-attached cottages trailed from the back Mke the rear view of Halley's comet A fine-looking young chap ran down the steps and my heart did a •eat flip-flop when he smiled at me "Good afternoon. Are you Miss Gordon?" he asked. -Sally to you," I muttered under my breath, while I smiled sweetly and admitted that was my name -I'm Neal Peake. I'll attend to your luggag. and put the car In the parking space," he went on. With a flourish which made me feel like the Duchess of Windsor he opened the car door. "Here's Miss Gordon, mother." He raised his voice and, looking beyond him I saw a woman standing on the steps. Her smile was, as sweet and welcoming as Neal's, but the contrast between her and her sister. Miss Ivy, was so startling I almost gasped. At a liberal estimate. Mrs. Peake was not more than five feet three and her width made her look even shorte;-. I could only liken her to an animated bolster, with extra pillows tacked on here and there, and the several chins of a dowager sea- Hon.

These are neglected by coach, layer and his family. It is the ' usiness of the coach to see that | uch cases are uncovered, not wait i or them to be brought to him. One { minute's inspection of hands, feet j nd skin would be sufficient to spot any abrasions or cuts. Proper Examination Another cause is insufficient phy- ical examination before the candi- ate is allowed to play. The ques- .ion of injury to the heart from athletics is well summarized from n enormous experience by Dr. R. Tait Mackenzie, who says that it is seldom following severe athletic ompetition that one finds any in* ury to the heart, after a week's ime, if the heart was originally ound. The last'phrase puts the problem squarely up to the medical examiner of any team. Coaches anxious to turn oat a winning team allow star players to continue in the game when they are njured or exhausted, and thus a minor injury turns into a serious one. Parents of high school football players should make sure that an adequate physical examination is fiven at their school, and that the :oach regards the game as an athletic contest and not a money-making enterprise. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS J. Z.: "What causes uric acid in the system, and how may it be remedied?" Answer: Uric acid is derived from the purine bases in the food, found in meats, particularly in kidneys, sweetbreads, liver. The human body does not oxidize nor elinv itk{tt» uric acid readily. Preparations of colchicum help in elimination. > KDITOR'8 NOtB: Or. OUndwtn* hM Mf M pWDDhUU which c«n tw obtained by .mdM*. EM& wunphtat uil* for 10 emu.

During the business session it was decided that the November meeting should be held at Amber j as it is the installation meeting ! and a larger building and more ' central location • offer greater i conveniences. ! Two new members from Fountain, Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Goff, were given the obligation of the fifth degree. In the election of officers the following were chosen: Master, Emanuel Anderson, Pere Marquette Orange; overseer, Herman Beyer, Victory; lecturer, Marguerite Baushke, Fountain; steward, Carl Soneral, Hamlin; assistant steward, Charles Smith, Hamlin; chaplain, Mrs. Chris Kissell, Harmony; treasurer, j Floyd Wood, Harmony; secretary. Miss Gladys Boyer visited recently with her sister, Mrs. Sam Ferris, and her brother, Charles Boyer. Potato and Apple Show Is Planned Plans have begun for the annual Northern Michigan Potato and Apple show to be held at Traverse City, Nov. 8, 9 and 10. The events will be held in the Central school building at Traverse City. Several of the Mason county 4-H potato clubs are planning to exhibit at the show. County Agent Harold J. Larsen and assistant county agent, Russell Johnson, urge that individual growers, who plan to exhibit, remember the show while She was certainly weaned on something more acidulous than a pickle. --„..,.. .. — „. .*..»....»..., , .,•— /• inuiu, rememuer uie siiuw wiiiic Charles Hubbell, Amber; gate digging their potatoes and so be IrnAnn** LJn» »•••« A rm *•> r* n/In f?f\r\ • I ..." . a cup of tea. There's notnlnj, like hot tea to rest one after a tiring ride." She bustled out before I could say one word in reply. How on earth did she manage to carry that bulk around so lightly and gracefully, I wondered, as I sank down into the nearest chair and looked around me. If the rest of Hill House lived up to my greeting and what I could see, I'd have to agree with Rhoda. The view from my window—I was on the opposite side from the spite fence—looked out over the hill to the flat land below. There were acres of diked cranberry bogs, long stretches of open moors, sand dunes, glistening sandy beaches and the open sea extending to the far blue horizon line. I felt rested just from looking at such beauty and Inhaling the fresh rose-scented air. At the end of the room a partially open door revealed an immaculate bath and opposite my chair stood a bed I knew, without even touching it, was as soft and comfy as beds should be and so seldom are. Tap, tap, tap, came on my door. "Come in," I invited. I knew It wasn't Rhoda rapping. Her impetuous bangs for admission echo through an entire house. A cafe au lait maid, with face as smiling as her mistress', appeared. In her hands she bore a tray holding a pot of steaming tea, delicate sandwiches and minature cakes. "It's a long time to dinnah, Miss," Chloe volunteered. "Miss Peake 'spects yo 1 need a bite to eat an' the tea'll res' yo' sho' nuff." And was that lunch good: The tea was just .-.vhat I needed, though I hadn't realized it. I'm not a tea drinker as a rule. But the delicious aroma and still more delicious taste would wile the most confirmed toper from his glass. By th time I had finished I was a complete convert to Hill House. I didn't blame Rhoda for her extravagant praises. I'd probably stand on a street corner and tell the whole wide world about it when I got back to the city. After Chloe carried the tray away, I bathed and stretched out on the bed for a cat nap—and the next thing I knew Rhoda was pounding on my door with eager demands to be let in. "Well?" Her roguish smile questioned me, and I surrendered without any hesitation. "You win," I cried, raising both hands. "I'm converted. Hill House forever. Hip, hip, hooray!" I shouted under my breath. Rhoda laughed gleefully. "You ain't seen nothin' yet," she dra- matically declaimed. "I told Mrs. Peake that you'd never eaten clam keeper, Henry Agens, Mason; Ceres, Mrs. George Allard, Hamlin; Pomona, Mrs. E. Anderson, Pere Marquette; Flora, Mrs. Roy pancakes and that bluebeify pie |Young, Harmony; lady assistant your favorite dessert, and she's •iving us both for dinner. Just you wait." "For pity's sake, have a heart, Rhoda," I begged. "You stay as thin as a lath while you eat like a pig, but I have to count my calories or when this month is ended I'll be a stylish stout instead of a size sixteen." "You won't count them here," she giggled. "No one ever does. This air makes one as hungry as a bear. By the time you've been here k you'll wish Lone Pine hill were in England, %vhere you get four or five meals a day." I groaned aloud. I have disciplined my appetite ever since I was :\venty. Red hair and freckles are liabilities enough for one girl to stagger under. If you add fat to that—well, I've yet to see a man who, in his heart, likes a fat woman, and though I was fancy free when I entered Hill House, I al- wjiys have intenderJ-tirget-married and have a home of my own with one or two or three little redheads running around. I knew I had a problem on my hands, for no one ikes to eat any better than I do. "Come on, lazy bones," Rhoda cried now. "Get dressed. It's almost dinner time and I am famished. There aren't so many boarders here now, but can they eat!" "Oh, Rhoda," I cried as I fairly flew into my clothes. "Do listen to what a dumb thing I did." / As I told of my looking and laughing at Miss Ivy's odious decoration, Rhoda first laughed; then her expression subtly changed. "You know, Sally," she said as I finished. "I'm afraid there's more trouble coming from that darned thing." T> Trouble?" I looked at her In surprise. "Trouble over the spite fence after all the years it'a been there. How do you mean?" "I don't know," she confessed. "Mrs. Peake hasn't said a word, but she's not so jolly and full of fun as she always has been. Two or three times I've come upon her unexpectedly and she was looking at that fence with the most worried look on her face, though she immediately tried to conceal her apparent anxiety." "I can't imagine why she should be worried about it at this late date," I persisted. "Nor I," Rhoda persisted, "but I wish that hurricane last fall had blown Miss Ivy Newcomb and her spite fence straight across to Spain."
