Proposed Wage Raise Disappointing to the ^Railway Workers Here Local railroad employes are disappointed over the resultant report ol the President's fact finding board named to investigate the wage prob- Jem in the industry. Most of them "" id confidently expected the board "would find in their favor. Wot only the small wage Increase named, about 12 1-2 per cent on the average, was disappointing to the local men but the fact that the pro- wage Increase is only tem« •. extending to December b Tina. Some ol the men expressed |.the opinion that at the end of that ; period the roads would ask for a return to the present wage scale, but to addition might ask for a decrease have it retroactive at the same lie. There was comendation of Presi- Roosevelt in announcing the fact finding board result so promptly. It was said that he could have ^withheld this for some time, pos- ilbly until the first of the next year lie law provides for a 30-day intermission before a strike could be called on the railroads. As it Is now the earliest date on which a strike .could be called would be December 5 ^ It Is anticipated that there wil more negotiations -between the 'railroads and the employe unions 'with the possibility of some kind o: compromise.

Instead of telling a story for the benefit of the children. Mrs. Rollins painted a beautiful rag picture and used the loved poem, "One Ship Sails East." Evangelist Rollins explained what Jesus. Paul. Mark. John and Peter said about the way'to be saved. The apostle Paul said that it was necessary to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, which means, not only to know of Hun, but to accept Him as Saviour. By His grace, and our faith are we saved. Jesus did not die as a martyr, but died voluntarily for our sins, and was raised from the dead. showing HLs death was not in vain. Mark said to repent and believe. The Bible tells us what things are sin. also that we shall reap what we sow. shall reap more and lonfer than we have sowed, and others shall reap our sowing also. God's Justice demands that those who will not repent must go to hell, which surely "" Sterling Ends Grid Season Friday Night In Game at Clinton COfU h 'TV-cl sMi'-id wii; taV.r hi' (to'.rlrn Warriors to Clinton Friday nlzh' for thr srirl finn> Thr Earn* 1 n «•: ii rr l'.i: r d to *iait prompt!'.' nt 7 *.'-> Coarh JVid 1>r- hune and hi<- f;o-;--vr,;V ri ., W! ;; ; i; ft y tn the afteni<>o:i. tin. 1 " canr 1 starting at 3:3<V Twenty "Miuir 1 WL: don their football suits for the :,!'• time in hizh school p'.av J-ixi.v. lueht.

Rev. Mr. Rollins declared that to promiscuously confess to everyone and anyone is unnecessary, and often does harm. Peter added that we should be baptized. Nearly all churches practice baptism. Jesus said to believe and be baptized, and He himself was baptized for an example. Weather conditions have been unfavorable since the series of meetings started, but much interest has been shown, and the attendance has been good. Each evening Evangelist Rollins has a message of help and inspiration to all. The meetings will continue each evening through Sunday. Allister. Arthur McCue, jr., Paine* McOann. Vera McKcnna.
