S. Senator U. S. Senator Harry Truman, speaking In behalf of his candidacy lor Democratic nomination for that office, spoke on the streets of Dex-' ter last Friday morning.

i Senator Truman spent most of his time In redtlng the failure of the Republican party before the Democrats came Into power, and In reciting his own standing and position In the U. S. Senate. Three things only stood out significantly In Trumans speech. He BED SOX TO FACE A MONEY CLUB HERE SUNDAY, AUG.

4 The Scott County Milling Co. of Sikeston, who runs the Sikeston Millers baseball dub, is out to defeat the Dexter Red Sox. We understand they are going to spend $100 to get players for the Red Sox game. The fight started when Gene Nichols and the Sikeston manager were talking about a game and the Slkseton man wanted to play winner take all. Nichols told him that he had better take what he can get because his dub wasnt that good.

So the game is matched and the Sikeston dub is bringing Lefty Gentry from St. Louis to face the Red Sox. This Is going to be a hard fought ball game. As the primary approaches next Tuesday, the county, state and national candidates begin to receive more and more attention and are fast gaining over the war In Europe in conversation of the people.

A FAN TELLS WHAT'S WRONG AUTH THE SOX After all the Dexter Red Sox is and the way in which the county treasurer can collect taxes without attorney's fees being added to the cost of collecting. When it came to our attention that some were being told that the county court, not the treasurer, appointed the tax attorney, we asked Judge C.

A. Crane, member of the court, about the matter. The Judge pointed out that the county court could not appoint a tax attorney according to his knowledge, and that the county court any jjagetoU-nfafera team and ones who govern PETITIONS FOB GRAND JURY BEING CIRCULATED Petitions for a grand Jury In the August term of circuit court have been circulated the past week or 10 days in the county. specifically mentioii elections in the countv Onlv 50 to sltirin the appointment Aft tnoaTowaVeufgenrS man and submitted his name to the Jury, we under- Court to call a stand.

The trouble with the Red Sox dub Is that they are not playing the right men. The right men to play are the ones who work hard to win, one who can run after those fly balls, and catch them on the fly, and the men who can lay down on those ground balls and not let them go thru their legs for extra bases. No it is not the Infield, the pitching nor catch which is losing our games. Then is must be In the outfield and it isn't left field either. I am just an interested fan who has seen every ball game on the local diamond this year and along with many other Dexter fans want to see Dexter win their games, and if the manager has an ear he could hear the fans in the stand saying, Give us Charlie Hart and R.

D. Baker In right and center field. Try tor Just one game and see the results. A FAN. Hello 'After reading last week's issue of this column, probably, some people, arrived at the conclusion that the writer does not believe in pre-.
