GRAHAM CRACKER ARE BROTHER BAND About three years ago three Piqua brothers conceived the idea of forming a musical organization and after practicing a bit they liked the idea and ever since have been entertaining their friends and the public with their varien programs. The group is known as The Graham Crackers, with Kenneth Graham, tenor banjo player, the manager, and Pat and Carl Graham the other members of the "band." At first th group played and sang old time songs but as their ability with the instruments grew, they turned to opu!ar pieces and now at the programs they give before clubs and at private parties they mix the programs as may be desired. Kenneth Graham, who resides at 404 South Main street says he and his brothers like the work and intend to keep on filling engagements. They have a busy season ahead of them during the coming holidays. UNIQUE NEWSPAPER EXHIBITED AT CALL Was Published on the Back of Wallpaper in 1863 at Vicksburg, Miss. Exhibited in the window of the Piqua Daily Call Is a newspaper published July 2, 1863 in Vicksburg. Mississippi, and printed on the back of a piece of wallpaper! The curiosity, the property of W. W. Alexander of 510 College sire - ., bears the name of "The Daily Citizen" and eulogizes the feats of the Southern Army under Gen. Robert E. Lee, then engaged in Civil War. Toward the end of one article, entitled "Gen. Rob't E. Lec Again," appears this statement, Indicative of the optimism of the Confeder ates: "Today Maryland is ours. Tomorrow Pennsylvania will be, and the next day Ohio now midway, like Mohammed's coffin, will fall.'' The significance of the story lies in a note at the bottom of the page which is dated two days later, and which reads: "Two days bring about great changes. The banner of the Union floats over Vicksburg. Gen. Grant has "caught the rabbit;" he has dined in Vicksburg, and he did bring his dinner with him. The "Citizen" lives to see it. For the last time it appears on "wall paper." No more will it eulogize the luxury of mule - meat and frlcassed kitten urge southern warriors to such diet nevermore. This is the last wall paper edition, and is excepting this note, from the types as we found them. It will be valuable hereafter as a curiosity." lilt "Too tired to enjoy dinner." "Sick of my own cooking." How familiar these quotations are. So familiar, that many housewives think the conditions they refer to are a necessary part of housekeeping. But they're not. There's a cause, and modern science has removed that cause. The cause of course, is 'an old - fashioned stove. . . .A modern electric range takes the back - breaks and the heartaches out of cooking. With the guess - work removed, with certain results assured as unfailingly to the young bride as to the experienced housekeeper, what excuse is there for putting up with an old - fashioned stove? The savings on "cooking failures" will almost pay for a new electric range.

This we do MOTION PICTURES ACCOMPANY FINE TALK ON 'EUROPE' Rev. Hugh I. Evans of Dayton Addresses Y Men's Club Members, Guests Last Night. More than eighty persons thor - ouglily enjoyed the illustrated lecture "Europe," by Rev. Hugh I. Evans, of the Westminster Presbyterian church of Dayton presented at the special meeting of the Y Mens club last night at the First Presbyterian church. Members, their wives and guests enjoyed every minute of Rev Evans' talk, which was accompanied by a marvelous collection of motion pictures of the various countries on the Continent. .These pictures were taken by the Dayton man on a re cent tour of Europe. Starting with the departure from the United States, the movies portrayed interesting spots in England, and Germany and other nations. The last half featured "shots" of Russia, including in addition to the many historic and scenic points, interesting views of the Rus sian people themselves, at work and at play as well as various public demonstrations. The pictures of Russia were par ticularly outstanding and of much interest, portraying a new insight upon conditions in that country as well as the various projects and movements now afoot there. Rev. Evans m his talk, related many Interesting incidents and told many particularly striking lacts relative to the various countries which he visited on the tour. The meeting opened jvith a fine two course turkey dinner served by members of the Ladies Auxiliary of the church. Following a peppy song fest led by Raymond Mote, with Guion Osborn r t the piano, Bmmett Myers, club president, presented several important announcements and then introduced the speaker of the evening. From start to finish the meeting was one of the finest in the annals of the club, being borh interesting OR. J, Q. LAUER DIES AT THE AGE OF 68 Former Resident of Con - over Passes Away Friday Morning in Hospital at Lima. Conover, O., Dec. 5. Dr. J. G. Lauer, 68 - year - old practicing physician of Elida, Ohio, and former resident of Conover, died in Lima Memorial hospital Friday morning of flu and resulting complications. Dr. Lauer, whose father, also a doctor, practiced In Conover all his life, left here nineteen years ago to take up his residence in Elida, near Luna. The body will be brought to Flet - cner tor Durial following rites Mon day morning at ten o'clock In the Elida Methodist church. His widow, Mrs. Dora Hardacre Lauer survives, along with a daughter, Mrs. Arthur Lynn (Mildred) who lives In Washington, D. O, four grandchildren and two sisters, Mrs. A. B. Graham of Washington, and Mrs. Retta Dodd, Conover. AT LEAST (Concluded from Page One) ing blocks struck by incendiary Fascist Gen. Francisco Franco sent 30 bombing planes In the fearful mass attack. The fleet flew low and m close formation to dump 40 - ton cargo of bombs along the pnsro De Rosaies sector in the lenguered capital's northwest and into government lines outside suburban Pozuelo De Alcacorn. Each plane loosed four 500 - pound "ash - cans," as well as smaller bombs. In all, more than 400 bombs were dumped into the city, exploding in an almost continuous roar. The air attack was followed by a renewed Fascist drive to separate Madrid proper from the Casa Del Cnmpo Pnrk by nn attack on Pozuelo and the Manzanares River valley. War office communiques claimed government forces were attacking within 25 miles of Burgos, seat ot the Fascist Junta, and the civil population was evacuating Vltorin, in the Bay of Biscay sector, in advance of a government onslaught. Government planes were said to have attacked Fascist concentrations at Alnva in the Basque know and take pride to saying he may have been wrong many times but never was he Insincere or dishonest. And, after all, when all is said and done, what greater goal can one seek to attain than that? The writer, probably more than the average, will miss the daily contact with a man who has given his best efforts to the thankless task of law enforcement for nearly 34 years for we know him best not as chief of police but as a delightful companion, a keen conversationalist. A lover oi last moving repariee even s own expense. We have this consolation that his retirement does lean the loss of a real friend but on the other hand perhaps means the opportunity for him to regain complete health and a longer and happier life. That, at any rate, is our earnest wish for Frank Gehle. Kennle ShofstalL Two Gentlemen! In this day and age,, when one hears so much about the lack of courtesy and thoughtfulness on the part of motorists regarding the poor pedestrian, instances in contrast to the usual charges are readily noted. The other day near the noon hour. Daily Call reporter, while driving home to dinner, saw this happen An elderly woman, unfortunately crippled and pushing one of those shopping baskets that have wheels on the bottom, had made her way out from the curb in hope that she ght be able to get across a down town street. She looked to the right and then to the left as strings of cars headed both up end down the street swept past her. However, in the respective lines of cars, were two men who, though perhaps in a hurry to get somewhere, courteously halted their autos, and motioned the m to take her time and cross in safety. This act, halted traffic for better than a minute but somehow the day seemed brighter to the Daily Call reporter who, as a spectator of the incident, found his faith in human kindness on the part of mo torists, somewhat rejuvenated. Just who the two auto drivers ;re remains a mystery but here' hoping that their respective days were brighter and they themselves much happier. Perhaps each said to himself as he stopped to permit the aged lady to cross the street safety "She's someone's mother I'd like others to do the same for mine." You Blow Through Here J. C. Gardner, head of the Gard t Motor Sales company of thi city and also president of the Piqua Lions club proved "the goat" ir meeting of that service club Tues day night at the Greene St. M church. Francis Jacquemin, Tail Twister of the Lions, who the week before "forced" all Lions to eat their din ners using only their left hands, was up, to his old tricks last Tuesday evening. Presenting a contraption which had small pipes fastened to a large at the top of which w small fan, Jacquemin declared that vas going to matte a test ot tne lungs of all Lions present." Jiacn Lion was to blow into one of the other pipes fastened at the bottom ol the large tube and to try to make the fan at the top oi cne tuce revolve lor one mmute. Len Schrader, a member of the club and well - known in local soft ball circles, was the first victim. He passed the test successfully or at least to the satisfaction of the Tail Twister. However, President Gardner popped up and questioned Jacquemin "if .that was the healthy thing to do passing the pipes from the mouth of one member to another," adding that he wasn't afraid to blow on it but did think it wasn't exactly the sanitary thing to do. And then he explaimed "Bring it here, I'll blow it." . Jacquemin acquiesed and handing the contraption to the Lion President said "Blow on this one, Schrader used the other." Gardner held the gadget care - ''L;f!S.P.. 0 ENROLL NOW! There rt different classes of membership with small weekly deposits to suit everyone's means.
