News In a bulletin issued by the Maryand State Soccer Association last week a 63 per cent increase is noted his year in affiliated teams. Last ear there .were 44 teams and this car 72 teams. The teams are from five leagues scattered throughout Maryland nnd Washington, D. C. They arc: reater Baltimore Leagues 40 team? Vashington League 11 " Eastern Shore League 10 " Jaltimore Major League 6 " iVcstern Maryland League 6 " Total 72 F L A S H ! Jaston-The Easton-Cambridgc game played n Sunday, October 23rd, the opening ·ame of the newly organized Eastern Ihorc League, drew 600 spectators nd large crowds attended other jame- in the circuit. Denton and Jreensboro also drew very large rowds on two occasions. Vashington-- J. Ragland, Secretary of the Wash- ngton Soccer League, says "Al- hough the League was supposed to tart NINE tennis, TWO additional earns have asked to be admitted. AND DID THE LEAGUE SAY NO? 'OU CAN BET YOUR BOOTS JHEY DIDN'T. THEY ARE NOW OPERATING AS AN 11 TEAM ,EAGUE. Williamsport-W. V. Stenger, President of the Western Maryland Soccer League, another newly affiliated league in reporting the opening for that League, vrites, "We had the largest crowd at jur game today, that has attended a game in the last SIX years. Soccer erne to be coming back." Stewart Cups Each year the State Association has what is known as the Stewart Cup Competition for amateurs only. The first rounds will be played in Baltimore January the 8th. Those who nurvive the first round would then mvc a chance for the second game scheduled on their home fields. The winning club in the state will then jo after the nationdl laurels. The entry fee is 52.00. Denton, as well as the other teams in the Eastern Shore League, has an invitation to compete for this cup. This however does involve extra expense hut is well worth the effort of any team trying. What do you say, Denton, is it worth your while? About Our League After five weeks of play we find n close race among the first five teams, only 3 points separating the leaders and Denton now holding down thu fifth spot. The season is very young and the standing could change by the leaders dropping a game. Greensboro has scored 23 goals against their opponents, Chestertown 20, Ridgely 19, Denton and Vienna C.C.C. 12 each, Vienna A. C. 11, Easton 10, Federalsburg and St. Michael- 3 each, Cambridge 2 (they having withdrawn), Centreville 1, (took place of Cambridge and only played 1 jontest). All and all it looks as .hough Greensboro had the strongest .cam but Denton gave them their only defeat. Chestertown bowed to u reensboro for its only defeat, while Dcnton tied Vienna A. C. to cut their record of straight victories. Well maybe thU Dcnton team is better and can be counted on for winning cither the first or last half. The winner of the first half of the season nnd tho winner of the second will play a three game series at the end of the season to determine the winner. Well there is room for every club. Korner Kicks It is the general opinion of all soccer fans that Sipple, center half for Greensboro, may get a chance in n higher league next year. He surely knows how to use his feet. Don't forget Denton has one very good too, and that's Cab. The postponed games of last Sunday will probably be played January 1st.

FIFTY MILE SPEED LIMIT The Keystone Automobile Club heartily favors the establishment of 50-mile-an-hour motor vehicle speed imit for Maryland, as proposed recently by Walter R. Rudy, Commissioner of Motor Vehicles, nnd Major Slmer Munshowcr, head of the State 'olice. Ba-ing its endorsement on the experience of Pennsylvania, which has reduced highway fatalities 38 per cent this year through enforcement of its 50-mile limit, the Club declares that motorists will observe a speed aw that is reasonable, but evade one that is unreasonable in its limitations. "We are not advbcates df high speed," said Matthew P. Hanley, Manager of the Eastern Shore Division of the Club, "but we certainly favor reasonable regulation^ as embodied in the 50-mile maximum and lower speeds where conditions warrant and where the regulation is indicated by proper signs. We venture to say that no operators feel any scruples about exceeding the 45-mile limit. In consequence of widespread disregard of the rule, respect for this and other laws is decreasing. Victims of spasmodic 'enforcement campaigns' pay, the penalty for being caught in an offense that all mo- tori-ts nre committing. "If a 50-mile limit is established in Maryland, we believe motorists gen- irally will stay within it. As a matter of fact, there has never been ;uch careful driving in Pennsylvania since the police undertook strict enforcement of the 50-mile law, with license revocation for 90 days as the penalty for violation. "It has been shown by official reports that enforcement of the 50-mile aw in Pennsylvania has not only cut down fatal accidents on the open road, but has reduced in exactly the ,ame proportion fatalities in cities nnd boroughs." "Hc'i not the best cnrjwtcr ir/io makes the mast chips." DECEMBER _ 0--Company o( pioneer sot- tiers loll Ipswich, Masa, - I7B7 - WHEAT LOANS NOW AVAILABLE TO FARMERS IN MARYLAND The Agricultural Adjustment Ad- mnistration will make wheat loans available to farmers in areas in Maryland where such loans previously could not be made because of the lack of storage facilities, it is announced by C. Z. Keller, State Executive Officer for the AAA in Maryland. The loans are being financed through the Commodity Credit Corporation. The wheat loan program as originally announced has been modified to allow wheat to be shipped Lo acceptable storage at Richmond and Roanoke, Virginia, or other points where acceptable storage is available. Wheat that has been stored in warehouses by farmers who intended to obtain loans but could not do so because the warehouses in question were not approved for storage may be moved to an approved warehouse under this plan and placed undei loan. The Commodity Credit Corporation will advance to farmers nn additional amount to take care of the freight to* Richmond or Roanoke, provided such freight costs do not exceed 12 cents per bushel. Any amount in excess of 12 cents per bushel is to be borne by the producer seeking the loan. Except for this change affecting the loan rate where freight is involved, the other features of the wheat loan program remain aj; originally announced. Farmers in this area interested in wheat loans should contact the offic' 1 of the Agricultural Conservation Association in their county to obtain full details of the plan. THE ELECTIONS 4--Fust general assembly In Pennsylvania convened in Chester, 1682. 5--Prohibition reached its logo! end in the United Slates, 1933. E-Edwaid H. Sothem, tho famous actor, bom, 1659, "7--George Washington delivered his last address 1o Congress, 1796. " 8--Eli Whilnoy, inventor of the cotton gin, was bom, 1765. '»-Loulsa M. Alcoa's "Little ^ was first published, 1B68. The elections nre over. Every patriotic American will accept the results without rancor. It is thi; cardinal principle of democracy that the people rule--even as it is the cardinnl principle of dictatorship that the people bo ruthlessly submerged to the whim of the dictator. To the thinking citizen, who is less interested in partisan politics than in good government, the real significance of this election is the revival of the two-party system, the very foundation of the republic. It is .1 well-known fact that even men high in the Democratic party have looked with disapproval on that party's excessively great Congressional majorities of recent years. And it will be remembered that following the World War, the Republicans had a simila 1 tophcavy majority, faced no influential opposition, and certain abuses were the result. This election has to n large extent readjusted the balance of power in Congress to the status envisioned by the founding fathers. That makes for sound government. Whatever party you follow, whatever your political allegiance, if you believe in democracy, you will welcome the resurgence of nn effective political opposition ns a check on whatever party happens to control Congress at the moment. Scrapping Of Susquehcmna Span Opposed Emphatic opposition is expressed by the Keystone Automboilc Club to the pioposal to scrap the free bridge over the Susquchannn river between Havre dc Grace and Perryville upon completion of the toll biidge recently authorized. The CIu!) takes the position that the only justification for erection of toll bridges lies in the creation of entirely new facilities--not mere substitution for existing free facilities. "Under no conditions," said Matthew P. Hanley, Manager of the Eastern Shore DivL-ion of the Club, "can we consider it fair to the motoring public to arbitrarily close a bridge long in use and compel motorists to pay tolls on a substitute structure. Collection of tolld, in our opinion, is justified only in the circumstance that a new bridge opens up an avenue of travel which could not, without detriment to the remainder of the highway system, be built out of current collections from the gas tax and motor vehicle fees. "If the Havre de Grnce-Pcrryville bridge is trapped in favor of the toll bridge, a bad precedent will be established. The same course logically could be followed in other bridge replacements. We believe, therefore, that the plan to abandon the present bridge should be shelved and the structure maintained for all who want to use it. "The new bridge must be regarded as an additional accommodation. Its popularity and patronage will depend upon whether the driving public finds the convenience it affords to be worth the cost of the tolls. "The Potomac bridge, an entircl} new project, to be erected coincident with construction of the Havre de Grace structure, is an improvement of the character we believe should be financed by tolls. Motorists who wish to avail themselves of the saving in time and mileage to be afforded by this bridge may properly Le charged for the creation of a facility for their benefit." SPEAKERSHIP SOUGHT BY BURROUGHS The Eastern Shore, which has not had a Speaker of the House of Delegates since 1910, u to make a bid for that office in the new Legislature. P. Elliott Burroughs, who will return to the House for a third term to become one of the oldest members of that body in point of service, has been pledged strong support among the new membership of the House for his candidacy for the Speakership, it was revealed last week. Wicomico county has never had o presiding officer of the House of Delegates. The last Eastern Shoreman to hold that post, which U elected by the House membership, was Adam Peoples of Cecil County, who served twenty-eight years ago. In his eight years in the House, Mr. Burroughs has served actively on the most important committees and has been a potent force in shaping policies and legislation. He is now chairman of the Chesapeake Bay and Tributaries Committee, vice-chairman of the all-important Ways and Mean,-, Committee and holds membership in a number of other functioning committees. His legislative experience, supporters of his candidacy declare, fully qualify him for the Speakership. · Two Baltimorcans, each with eight years' service, are also seeking the spcakcrship. They are Delegates Leon Abvamson and John F. Conroy. ·In the Senate active campaigning has also been started by candidates for the presidency of that body. Among them are senator-elect Arthur Brice, of Betterton, Kent county, and Senator-elect Dudley G. Roe, of Sudlcrsyillu, Queen Anne's county. Both supported Democratic Governor-elect Herbert R. O'Conor. Brice was elected to the Senate in 1934 after serving in the House. Roc served a term in the House in 1908 and served in the Senate from 1923 to 1934 when he did not seek re-election. ORPHANS' COURT The Orphans' Court for Caroline County met in regular session on TUG day, with Judges Towers, Handy nnd Dennis present. The following business was approved, and ordered recorded: Real estate appraisement filed in Leonard R. Towers' estate. Releases filed in William F. Reagan estate.

Repotter Geo. Clendanicl Athletic Reporters: Girl's Elaine Greaves Boy's Robert Moore Typist Irma Henzen Asst. Typist Dorothy Howard EDITORIAL Now that we arc all safely through the Thanksgiving holidays, it's time we settled down to work again. Holidays have a tendency to break up our regular habits of study. We have had about four holidays already this year, so during the month of December, we must work hard to make up for them. You sec, there are only 15 more school days before Christmas comes and if we don't study hard, and behave extra well, Santa Claus won't come to see us! Worse than that, when we come back from the Christmas holidays, we have to get ready for our mid-year exam?!! Let's try- to make this the very best school month of the year 1938, by doing the very best we can in all of our school activities. Literary News The literary editor announces the discovery of a future professional sporte writer. She was unearthed while the Juniors were writing character sketches in English. Kathleen Brubakcr, an ardent baseball fan gives us the following characterization of Dizzy Dean: A Great Baseball Pitcher Little did the hunters of- baseball ivory realize, that down in the cotton fields of Alabama, earning two dollars a day, was a tall, lean, and lanky boy of about twenty years old, who would some day become one of the world's greatest and most imitated members of the St. Louis Cardinal pitchers. A couple of years later the staff \vere lounging around the club house because of the rainy weather, when all of a euddcn a tall, slim, rather handsome boy with chiseled features entered, causing quite a bit o'f excitement. Dressed in brown pants and a rainbow colored shirt, he was, as you can imagine, rather conspicuous in appearance, and along with thio he presented a continual line of southern chatter which caused him to seem rather audacious. He received his job immediately and after limbering up his arm a bit, was ready to pitch his first major league game. Just imagine the scoop this would make for the front page of the sports section, reading as follows: "St. Louis Cardinals sign Alabama cotton picker, direct from the cotton fields. It is suspected that this will be quite a boost for the Cards". Thus was the introduction of the great Dizzy Dean, known to all the baseball fans of America nnd respected by all the young players who anticipate a baseball career. D'ean is a very temperamental pitcher, but I have never known or seen any one ignore mud-clinging publicity with such endurance as he has in the last two years. Approximately two years ago he began com plaining of a sore shoulder which eventually led him to an X-ray, sponsored by the manager, and it was discovered that Dean had a very badly inflamed arm and a swollen formation had appeared in the muscles. Meanwhile the gossip began, and fans suspected that the destination of the Great Dean was reached, but all the time he rested his arm and with chin up, snubbed the goseip. At the end of this past season he staged a most magnificent comeback, and pitched in the World Series. Although he lost his game, the Great Dean was back; he had really returned to baseball. The grandstands were filled to capacity and all the neighboring roofs of the houses were filled lilkewise. In his seven years in the "majors" he had made the name of one of the greatest pitchers in baseball, and he is usually sure of getting a hit when at bat. He has participated in just about nil of the All Star and World Scries games since coming to the "majors" seven years ago. He has also obtained a high degree of popularity among the .team members and the boys rcully play to back him up when he pitches. Diz was traded to the Chicago Cubs this year for $185,000 plus three players, one of the greatest trades ever transacted. He was almost a total failure this year, and since he caused such commotion in the great trade, all the ardent fans are putting all their hopes in Diz this next season, hoping that he will come back bigger and greater than ever and retain his title that he once held as "Baseball's Greatest Pitcher Ever". News Flashes Mr. Stull was unable to be with us on Monday as he was snowed in at his home in Pennsylvania. Mr. Colman from Fedcrolsburg took his place. Flash! Flai=hl High school pupils have been requested to bring in old toys to be repaired for this coming Christmas. Bank News Total deposit on November 29 was SG.82. The rooms that had the largest deposits were Miss Trice's anJ Miss Short's. The 'rooms that had the urgcst number of depositors were Mrs. Hamsburg's and Mies Trice's. The Red Cross Campaign in C. H. S. is over now with these results. The total amount, turned in by all the classes was $8.00. The following rooms subscribed: Mrs. Hughes', Mbs Ford's, MUd Short's, Miss Willoughbtfs, Mrs. Rairigh'e, Miss Trice's. The December meeting of the P.-T. A. will be held Tuesday, December 13, instead of on Monday, the regular night. Miss I. Jewell Simpson will 3e the speaker of the evening. The Glee Clubs of Caroline High will sing several Christmas carote. Mr. Fontaine visited us for a short while on Monday. Alumni News Thursday morning, November 24, Elwood Johnson of the class of '27 and Rcba Adams, of Easton, were married. Emma Elizabeth Hollistcr, class of '34, and Elhvood Dulin, of Cordova, were married on Thanksgiving evening. Saturday evening wedding bells rang for Edwin Scward, class of '36 and Florence Willis, class of '38. Some alumni who spent the Thanksgiving holidays at their homes in Denton are: Phyllis Scesc, Margaret Seese, Clyde Pentz, Charlotte Butler, Arthur Nuttle, Ernest Downes, Jack Harrington, Roclyn Orme, George Goldsborough, and Jack Rue. Catherine Altfathcr, who is in training at Garfield Memorial Hospital, Washington, was also home for the holidays. Mary Ann Knotts, of Tower Hill School, spent the holidays at home. Seventh Grade News Freddie Irwin of the Seventh Grade recovering in Easton Hospital from an operation for appendicitis. We all arc hoping he will soon be back with us. Freshmen News We've started on our last canto in "The Lady of the Lake". This story we have been studying in our English. Our teacher gives us questions and we answer them getting material from our text. Since we have returned from our Thanksgiving vacation we have buckled down to work so that we can enjoy our Christmas holidays. Sophomore News In Biology'we have finished our second problem. Our test was given and over half of the class got A's or B's. There were about three C's, a few more D's, and too many E's. We are hoping to get better marks on our next test. Our history finds us studying the American Revolution. During this study we have found many details which we had missed in our previous lessons. We have started on Equations in Algebra. After realizing these are not quite as hard as we ct first feared, we are getting along better now. Junior Tintypes On Monday, November 28, in English class, Robert Sattcrfield talked on 'How to Develop a Dairy Judging Team." He was going to give this talk On Tuesday evening at the Rotary Club and wanted to get some help from his classmates so as to improve his report. The U. S. Agricultural Bulletin entitled "Dairy Cattle Judging," film strips shown on the wail, the Hoard Dairyman Kit, and field trips all help in developing a dairy judging team. Robert went into detail, of course, and gave us a very interesting account of tnie subject. The Agricultural boys, you see, aren't satisfied with being farmers; they are going to be orators too. Agriculture needs good agricultural diplomats. C. H. S. is starting to show her goods along this line. Next week we shall have the pleasure of introducing a subject and teacher that have not, according to our knowledge, been mentioned--Mr. Lee nnd his Economic Geography class. Senior Tidbits One day in P. 0. D. we were discussing the testimony of witnesses and the fact that no two witnesses tell a story alike. Mr. Stull said that when he was in college a certain professor had a couple of boys come in the room, one shoot the other with a blank cartridge, and then both run out. The class then had to write up what happened. We never thought that anything similar would happen in our class, but a few days later we were talking over some problema, t when at five minutes of one the door was abruptly opened and Frank Zeigler came tearing in chased by Bill White. Their shirts were open at the necks and their neck ties flying. Bill got Frank down in front of the room and all we could see for a moment were arms and Icga. Finally Frank got up and ran out, followed quickly by BilL We thought it was a put up job, because Mr. Stull made no attempt to stop the fight Instead, he gave us a paper to write up, telling what we had seen. It was soon proved that no two testimonies were alike. The girls that closed their eyes during the fight were out of luck. It all happened so quickly that some of the pupils weren't sure as to who the "two guys" were and which one did Turn to page 8, please. INEWSPAPERif INEWSPAPERif
