Tke Denton National Bank Denton (i®) Maryland Marnier Federal Reserve Syilem To The Voters Of Caroline County It has just come to our attention that when Governor Harry W. Nice recently made his campaign tour of Caroline County for reelection he told the citizens in certain sections of the County where County roads are being improved by oiling or by oiling and re-surfacing that the people of Caioline County could thank him and Senator Wilmer Fell Davis for this road improvement. This is evidently a last minute effort on the part of the Rubuplican party to put across Governor Nice and Senator Davis at the coming election on November 8 and to defeat the respective D'cniociutic candidates, lion. Herbert K. O'Conor and A. Fletcher Siak. We cannot believe the good citizens of Caroline County can be duped and cajoled into voting for the Republican candidates by nuch nonsensical statements and desire to take this opportunity of giving them the real facts. The truth of the matter is that Caroline County is entitled to its pro rata sham of the fund* collected by the State out of gasoline tax and it is from this source several miles of lateral County roads (about 18 miles in all) are being improved at present. This allotment, whatever it may be, belongs to Caroline County and is coming to Caroline County regardless of whether Governor Nice and Senator Davis want it or not. The County roads of this County,"being at the present time under the control and direction of the State Roads Commission it was therefore necessary for the State Roads Commission to select the sections to be improved and these sections were 0. Keel by our present Board of Democratic County Commissioners. The projects referred to are as follows: Denton to Hobbs American Corner to Grove Preston to Choptank Goldsboro to Bridgetown, thiu the village of Bridgetown Federalsburg to Smithville Federalsburg to Nichols Williston to Concord American Corner to Friendship Henderson to Henderson School Hillsboro to Elbin's Mill Kline's Corner to Thawlcy's Chapel Denton to Holiness Camp Ground Naturally every good thinking citizen is interested in road improvement and likewise everyone knows that Maryland was one of the pioneer States which many years ago began the construction of improved highways, practically the whole of which has been accomplished under Democratic administration. It is also a well known fact that under the present Republican administration a large part of the revenue derived from gasoline tax has been diverted to channels other than road improvement; and had this not been so, the people of Caroline County could have had many more miles of lateral road improvement than they arc now getting. If Mr O'Conor and Mr. Sisk are elected, this work will go on just the same and they are both committed to road improvement by the Democratic platform which also opposes any diversion of the easoline tax. The fact that work upon these projects was begun just a few days prior to the election speaks for itself and plainly shows the adroit and cunning campaign methods used by the present incumbents of these offices. Such methods are not resorted to except in a last desperate effort to beguile the public. Vote for HERBERT R. O'CONOR FOR GOVERNOR and A.

E D I T O R I A L American Education Week To Be Observed At C.H.S Stall Editor-in-chief Margie Rue Assistant Editor Austin-Murphy liar's Reporters: c .,, J Grace Gclletly · Senior j Sylvin Sc(;sc Junior Wayne Cawley Sophomore Mae Fifield Freshman Bruce Andrews 7th Grade Chaffinch The Democratic ticket this year is of a very high calibre, consequently, no Democrat has any reason to split his ticket this year. No one can be told how to vote, but we wish to point out that the State of Maryland has had four years of Republican rule at Annapolis, four years of promises that have never been and never will be fulfilled, and if they are returned to power four more years of the same thing. Voters, think this thing over and on Tuesday go to the polls and register your considered judgment by voting the straight Democratic ticket. Going to school in a theatrel It sounds a bit strange, doesn't it? But that is what women of the community will be doing when the Denton Journal's Motion Picture Cooking School comes to town on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Nov. 15, 10 and 17. There will be real lessons, too, lessons in measuring, mixing, and blending the ingredients for many recipes; in the preparation of such triumphs as a lattice-top fruit pie; in making delicious frozen desserts and salads; in laundering fine fabrics; and in planning healthful meals for growing children. The camera has assembled all the expert information of trained home economists--not as a routine lecture, not as a formal "highbrow" demonstration, but as a real romance of home-making, full of suspense and charm, and -informal chats from-one- good-cook-to-another. There will be remarkable close-ups of each process in a series of model, conveniently-equipped kitchens--real, workable kitchens, (not the synthetic, fake-front variety), where trained home-makers will plan and complete the preparation of several meals so the entire audience can see the process step by step. The finished dishes, which will ba shown in full color, will look as though they could be picked right out of the picture and eaten on the spot. The class won't be all work, for there is the constant play of sparkling humor, the appeal of tender ror mance, the suspense of a coherent, intelligently directed story, which dramatizes everyday happenings-the human sort of things that really do happen. Binding the attractive story together is the romance of home-making, a subject that holds the interest of every woman young and old.

Chestertown Defeated Denton Here Sunday After losing the opening game with Ridgely a couple of Sundays ago the local team tackled Chestertown last Sunday and in the first 45 minutes of play with the same old story "no goals." At the end of the half Chestertown led by a score of 3 to 0. At the beginning of the third quarter Kibler tallied the first goal for the Denton boys of the current season. It only took Buddy Hubbard and Dug Bennington a minute each to tie the score at three all. Denton came, forth again to take the lead with Ben- nington'e toe doing the work. It seemed to be a see-saw affair because Chestcrtown's line would tally again to knot the score. When the third period ended the score was tied 5 to 5. The last quarter saw plenty of action but no c-core until the last half minute of ploy when Chestertown once again took the lead of 6 to 5. With seconds to go Fred Norris, centered a shot that hit the goal posts and with Hubbard attempting to shoot the ball through the upright kicked the sphere over the top. Well, the boys looked great out there Sunday and better luck is expected this Sunday. The summary: Chestertown Denton W. Snipers G. Ramsburg O. Wright L.F. W. Norns T. Robinson R.F. Pollard W.

Hallow Even Last week, students throughout the nation celebrated Hallowe'en by masquerading and playing pranks on one another. However, few people realize the significance of October 31. Originally Hallowe'en meant "Holy Eve", a time set apart to honor the memory of all Christian Saints. The customs of building bonfires, bobbing for apples, cracking nuts, and telling ghost stories are all relics which have come down to this civilization from" pagan ancestors of 2,00( years ago. Hallowe'en was celebratec before the time of Christianity, about the time when the ancient Druids had their autumn festivals. The Roman: also had celebrations during this per iod in honor of the goddess, Pomona Thus when Gaul was conquered bj Rome, .some of the Roman custom were adopted by them. When Chris tianity was introduced into the worli and made one of the great religions they used this holiday in memory o the saints, and made it a "holy day' In the paet years the ceremonie peculiar to this occasion in Scotlan were of a higTily superstitious nature. These superstitions have been kept, handed down, and added to, until now, our younger generations "act some- thin' awful!" Alumni News Ro-lyn Orme and Jack Harrington, who are attending Goldey College, spent the week-end at home. Mary Ellen Wright was also home for the week-end. Jimmy Chaffinch, with some of his friends from college, spent a short time at home on Saturday evening. Jean Temple is attending the Nurses' Training School at Wilmington General Hospital. Literary News This week, instead of giving you any real literary news, I just want to talk to you about the library. I mean just in general about the library, though I might mention some new bookiJ. Did you ever think what the library really is? I think most of you do not because when you come in the library you either read or have a class. Yes, the library is the place to read, but more important than that, it's the place to do research work, to add to the information you get in classes. Have you ever u--ed the Reader's Guide? It's a big help to you when you want to find a magazine article. All you do is look under the topic you want and there listed for you are the names and authors of all articles pertaining to it. It also tells the name, month, day and year of .the magazine in which it appears. Or did you ever use the World Almanac? In this little book, you will find all the information you want, from how much it costs to send a letter to Australia to how many people were killed in 1937. If you can't find the information you want in the World Almanac, you can surely find it in Webster's New International Dictionary. That's the huge dictionary at the front of the room. Perhaps you have wondered what the set of blue books is on the desk it is the new World Book. It is an encyclopedia, of course, but it tells things in a much more interesting way than our old ones do. However if you are looking up a character in history, you will probably like the Britannica or the New International I've forgotten about the new books I'll tell you about those next week Remember, the library is the place to , not talkl · · Boys' Athletics Last Thursday, C. H. S. met unex jpected defeat at the hands of Federalsburg by the score of 2-0. Apparently overconfident, the Denton team started slowly, and before they could get going, an alert Federalsburg team had pushed through a goal to lead 2-0. C. H. S. then started to rally, but somewhat handicapped by the sandy playing conditions, the attack repeatedly stalled. Meanwhile an aroueed Fcderalbburg team repeatedly repulsed all Denton's threats, and the C. H. S. boys lost heart For C. H. S. two boys stood out even in defeat, Frank Zeigler and Sherman Tribbitt never gave up, and not only did they give their best at the start, but they were also trying desperately at the end. Defeat is hard to take, but lose or win let's be good sports. Federalsburg played well and earned their victory. . Extra! On Tuesday C. H. S. played their fourth successive game away from home. In a hard, well played game at Greensboro, Denton twice came back from apparently hopeless defeat to tie a fine Greensboro team by the score of 6-6. Behind 4-0 in the cec- ond quarter, a courageous fighting C. H. S. team, featuring Sherman Tribbitt as a spearhead, scored twice on goals by this player to tie the score at 4-4. Once again in the fourth quarter, Denton rallied and on a goal scored by Burnley Wyatt, knotted the count at G-G. Outstanding for Greensboro were Luff, Haddock, and Spence. For C. H. S. there was no outstanding player. Each- man gave his best, bringing out one of the finest things in athletics; the "never give up spir- .", regardless of the situation. Fine vork, boys, and here's hoping you fill always carry this spirit with ou. Hats off also to the forgotten man; the referee, Mr. Thornton, who cfereed as squarely as it was human- y possible under hard conditions, the onditions which exist in all impor- ant games.

Senior News We, Physics students, were pleased this week when we did the experiment on siphoning by ourselves. The siphon should interest all of us because it is a device by means of which water runs uphill. Our object was to construct and operate a siphon by which to determine how the flow of a liquid is affected by the length of the arm of the siphon. We filled the beaker and inserted the siphon with both arms equal. With a stop watch we prepared to count the time in seconds that it took for the water to flow from one beaker to another. It took 95 sec. (4 min. 51 sec.) By attach- £ a short piece of glass tubing to He end of one arm of the glass iphon by means of a piece of rubber ubing, we lengthened the arm. Then ve lowered one beaker to receive the ow from the long arm. With the cngthened arm it took only 93 "sec. 1 min. 33 sec.) This proved to us hat when the outer arm is increased he rate of flow is increased also. This past week we have attempted o enlarge our respective vocabnlar- es. Some of the class have a distinct aversion" to this and thought it would be "pernicious" to their rules f studying, but Mrs. Hughes "accen- uated" the fact that it would not be "detrimental" to us. ' ·-. * Junior News- To you who once had French in C. H. S., we again wish to recall to your memory those sweet, dead days of misery. As we come to class (its the first period) in the morning, we "are greeted with a merry "Bonjour" from ur instructor, Miss Spicer. Along with our regular translation we learn useful phrases. Here is one: "Comment allez vous?" meaning, "How are you?" To all of the students this · s very interesting and very beneficial . ccause we want to learn to speak in French class without using English, by Christmas. Since Bill White, the GOSSIP not HUMOR reporter, only made "not so good" on his French the other day, he "Voice of Experience" advises Jill to study French in his spare time and not be snooping around trying o dig up secrets of the Juniors. We don't care about the Seniors; they are big enough to take up for themselves. Sophomore News Last week in English we had reports given to advertise some of the jest short stories we had read. Also some very clever posters were made. We found that our most popular author was Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who wrote those well known "Sherlock Holmes Stories." In Biology we had our unit test on "How Do Living Things Use .Food." We wish to thank all of the toch- ers for giving us time to finish oar lessons before Monday night so we could visit with the goblins without fear of failing the next day. Freshman News Our class is keeping up with,the times. With all of this electioneering and debating going OH, we've been doing a little ourselves. Picture « 4ee- (Tura to Page 6, Please).
