IN THE ringing words of that famous American na- val officer, John Paul Jones, our battle has only begun. Millions of people in this State have been educated, to the increased use of milk. Now it is your job and ours to maintain this level of milk-consumption. Milk supplies elements which other foods lack. Not only that. Milk also furnishes a mysterious ex- tra nourishment, a9 yet un- discovered, which makes it greater than the sum of its parts. This Vitalacticprin- ciple occurs in milk .and milk alone. It is the one food for which there is no substitute. Make sure that every child in your family gets a quart of milk a day, adults at least a pint. Use milk generously in cooking, too. Penny for penny of food- value, it is your most eco- nomical purchase. Every glassful you use helps yourself, and helps to in- crease the prosperity of this whole region. - Drink more Milfe IT'S GOOD FOR YOU THE STATE OF NEW YORK AVERAGE ABOUT SAME OF PEOPLE ON RELIEF Thero is a total of lVi individuals xtCAv on relief, in Fort Covinpion, an average which has bf^n maintain-od for quite some rink' iuKpkc <rf \h* fact that the local Welfare <>ffi<vr ;>nd <>fh- er town 4ffi.*iaLs have K^n dilur.-ntJy tfyiiiff to cut druvn Th«> i-«'Ii.

' BOMBAY MOCCASINS GREATLY IN DEMAND It is of no little interest to people throughout thia section that the products of one of Nor- thern New York's manufactur- ing business is becoming: widely acclaimed throughout the Unit- ed States and in particular, in New York City. Reference is made to the con- solidated Slipper >Corp., Inc. of Bombay of which Mr. Paul D. Earle is president and Mr. Francis J. Shields is vice-presi« dent. The factory which em- ploye over 200 people, makes a nationwide distribution of moc- casins in styles of all kinds. A noted New York columnist, Alice Hughes, writing in Octo- ber 15th isssue of the New York American, a Hearst newspaper of the largest circulation in the world s^tjrs relative to the Bom- bay made moccasins: A Yarn About Sheep Ever since Central Park's sheep mall has been discontin- ued, M a; c y\s has been lying awake nights, fitfully tossing and wondering what to do to keep sheep in New Yorker's consciousness. Go in and see the solution today — provided you can fight ycur way thrcugh the mobs standing round Com- fort Corner. That's where the sheep-rimmed, glove-1 eather Russian Cossack booties are.

Secondly, a natural for Christmas gifts in beautiful all white, Turkey red, emerald green., cobalt blue and other shades, richly rimmed above the ankle with sheep's wool.

E. portable x-ray ma- chine has been purchased by the board of directors of the Alice Hyde Hospital Association as ad- ditional equipment for the hos- pital. The new x-ray outfit can be taken to the bedside of the patient either in the hospital or in the home. X-ray pictures can be made or fluroscopic work can be done with the portable equip- ment. Dr. Chu CMahua, Cninese Minister of Communications, recently said he was convinced tfcat new lines of com- munication can go far towards mak- ing a new China, a news dispatch to the Chicago Daily News reprinted in the New Vork Sun reports. Telephone wires can be saviors'of nations, he believes. Likewise tele- graph lines and radio towers They establish governmental authority, con- tradict false rumors that spread over the country, and make central plans become national plans overnight. Therefore the Minister sees more than passing importance ip the pro- gram for construction of telephone and other communication facilities during the coming year. At present, long dis- tance lines are few and far between. You cannot make a call from Shanghai to Peipirig nor from Shanghai to Tient- sin or Hankow, Many other important points are not connected by telephone. During the coming year, planned con- struction will go far in overcoming this situation. This construction will center chiefly in nine provinces. One long distance line will go from Nanking to TientFin and another from Hankow by way of Kiukiang to Nanking, where it will join with the line to Shanghai. By means of these connections Nanking, Shanghai, Hangchow, Peipiug, Tientsin, Hankow and Tsinan-fu will at last be linked by telephone. \At present,\ continued the Minister, \we have only two telephone circuits from Nanking to Shanghai. That is bad. because when you want to talk in a hurry you can't. But this defect al- ready is in p circuits are tween the two cities and should be ready for service by next April.\ Extension of radio and telegraph fa- cilities in China is also planned. RELATIVES SEEK NEWS OF MORRO FIRE VICTIMS New YoA Stale S«y» DRINK MORE MILK k't GOOD For You Grief-stricken relatives and friends ' of those aboard tbe ill-fated Morro Cas- ! tie liner, shortly after the recent ship . fire disaster became known, poured an avalanche of telephone calls to news- paper offices and the headquarters of the Ward Line in New York. They were calls for information con- cerning the fate of loved-ones. Some sobbed, others spoke in low measured tones, stoically seeking to hide their concern. Most were brave and straight- forward inquiries. In every way possiy ble the newspapers and the steamship company sought to give the desired In- formation as data concerning the disas- ter was being compiled. The calls came in at the rate of 10,- \ 000 per hour at tbe offices of the steam- ! ship company, so their regular force of j five operators at the private switch- board vas augmented by three addi- : tional operators obtained from the i Jobn-4 office of the telephone com- [ pany. The heavy load of calli continued ; for about a day. The telephone cam- | pany was also asked to install three ex- \ tra trans, lines between the steamship office and tbe central office to facilitate handling tbe flood of inquiries. 22 POINT DEER KILLED IN LOON LAKE SECTION HALLOWE'EN COSTUMES FUNNY AT PARTY HERE The Glee Club of Fort Coving- ton held a very successful Hall- owe'en party last week on the eve of spooks, jack o'-laterns, witches and black cats. At 7:30 a large aggregation of privates, farmers, witches, old men. arid women (whom we suspected of being High School students) gathered at the Grange hall for an evening of dancing, games and refreshments. Dancing started immediately to the music of an automatic phonograph, loaned by Jack Ressy. During the evening it swallowed many nickels of the more enthusiastic dancers, but they all vowed that the evening was worth it—every nickel. Per- haps the main reason for this statement was the abundance of food and drink. The refresh ment committee generously bought ten gallons of sweet cid- er that disappeared in a twink ling, some very mysteriously. It was used, for the greater part to wash down a plateful of sandwiches and cake. In all, the evening was one of gay festivity and the colorful costumes aroused much com- ment. A contest was held to pick out the best and the fun niest costumes and prizes were awarded the winuers. The best costumes were: a private cost- ume won by Npreen Cappiello and a witch costume won t y Margaret Smith. The funniest costume, without a doubt, was that pf Harold Sprague. He was* dressed as an old stooped over farmer. At twelve o'clock, the party broke up and every one leaving with a pocketful of apples and the cornstalks and pumpkins settled back for the rest of the night, undisturbed by the stamp of dancing feet. In closing, we wish to give our humblest thanks to the Grange for its generosity in loaning the hall. Stanley Farquhar San Advertising Pays. —A large number from town attended the card party at Helena last Tuesday night. —Mr. Sprague of Chateaugay visited his brother, Mr. Joseph Sprague on Monday. —Messrs.

A 218 pound buck, carrying 22 points on its beautiful spread of antlers was killed recently by Mrs. Hattie Farewell of Loon Lake in that section of the Ad- irondacks. Hie number of points on the antlers of this deer is a rarity. HOGANSBURG* YOUTH ISHOMEFROMCCC. Emerson French of Hogans- burg, who has been stationed at the CCC camp at Barnum Pond, has returned home and is stay* ins: with his guardians, Mr. and Mrs. David Mainville. He finished his work with great success, starting in as woodsman and working himself up to a position as cook. He was a great help to all the boys. Mr. French has distinguished him- self on several occasions. An 1932 he and Ronald Jock of the same town rescued little Paul Herne of Hopransbur? from drowning. Dui ing the Bay Pond fire in the summer, he sav- ed the lives of two boys. Gap- tain Charles P. Eckhart and the boys were well pleased with him The Barnum Pond camp is re- garded as one of the leading camps of the state. v The youth has lived in Hogansburs for the past 14 years. THE AVERAGE MAN IS A CAPITALIST Who is the average American? The question was raised re- cently by President Roosevelt in his Green Bay speech. '• Those who would measure confidence in this country in the future,\ he said on that occasion, \must first look to the average citizen\ It has remained for a local economist to look into the stat istics and tell what manner of pei son this \average citizen\ actually is. He appears to be not at all the dissatisfied anti capitalist. He is a person who is gainfully employed the great- er part of the time. Every g*c * ond average man owns his own home. The average family has an automobile. Eight or ten million average citizens own stocks or bonds, and as deposi- tors in our banks and holders of insurance policies four or five times that number are indirect holders of securities. \The average man,\ concludes the author of this little statisti- cal study, \is a capitalist. He has no patience with socialism or communism, though recently he has been taking doses of both under misleading labels.\ It might be well to keep these simple facts in mind. This av- erage man cannot be very confi- dent if he does not know that he is going to keep his job. He cannot be confident if he cannot count on the maintenance of the purchasing power of his income He cannot be confident if he can- not look forward to a measure of security for himself and his familv in his later years as a reward for hard work and thrift. And he cannot be confident un- less he is assured that business is on the mend.

FUNERAL HELD IN PERU FOR FORMER RESIDENT Funeral services for James Alexander McCord, 20, son of Mr. and Mrs. James McCord of Peru, NX, who passed away on Wednesday night, October 31, 1934, at the Champlain Valley Hospital, Pittsburgh, were held Saturday afternoon, November 3rd, at the M.

HIGH SCHOOL ORGANIZES FOR BASKET BALL SEASON If you see a bunch of fellows running through the streets these days, don't think there's a fire for there probably will not be. These fellows are the high school boys getting in shape for basket-ball. Making up t h e group are Paul Lacombe, George Hunter, Gibson Coyle, F r a n k Hence, Wayne Merrick/ Marion Merrick and Donald Leclaire, who will probably compose the first team, the latter two being substitutes, and candidates for other teams may also be in the bunch, taking steps to build up their wind. By the present out-look, this season is going down in the an- nals of local high school basket- ball history as a banner year. The boj*e have definitely decided not to join a high school league, thus allowing the veteran line- up of last year to be maintained These boys were playing nice ball along toward the latter part of last season butmany of them, would have been disqualified this year by graduation and a g e, were the school to join a league. An intermural league will be formed of five or more teams of boys of the local hi^h school, giving every student, wishing to play basket-ball, an opportunity As captain of each of these live teams will be a player of the senior line up. Girls, too. may organize for basket ball under the leadership of Miss Alice Voorhees. A 11 plans laid down are dependent upon one thing A short time ago, an inspector for the edu- cational department at Albany upon a yisit here, sjggested that the Board of Education rent a hall for use by tho school in basket-ball. The Board of Education has decided to do this and now the whole works hinge upon the decision -of Firemen who will meet Thursday night to decide whether or not thev wish to rent the hall for these purpose?. Some leaders of the Fire company are said to be op- posed to the idea because they claim some of the boys are a little rough with the fixtures of the hall. HALLOWE'EN PROGRAM STAGED AT ASSEMBLY A very entertaining program aopropriate to the occasion of Hallowe'en was presented by the fifth grade, under the direction of Miss MaLoney, on Wednesday morning, October 31, in our high school auditorium. The program opened with the assembly singing the songs, \Ihe Spanish Cavalier,\ and \Solomon Levi/' in Ui>isoi), the_ girls singing the former and the boys the latter. Following this was a dialogue, \Doings in the Corn field,\ by seven boys. This was followed by a short skit, \It was a Grand Hallowe'en Par- ty,\ by Helen Hamood and Mar- gery Shoen. The program con- tinued with a reading, \It was a Spook on Hallowe'en,\ by Gerald Lepage. Miss Mahoney's pro- gram ended with a play, \Hall • owe'en Bells,\ by a large number of fifth grade members featur- ing Ernest Bouchard as chief announcer, Lucille French as a witch, William Latreille AS the man in the moon and the toy orchestra made up of several boys and girls. The exercises closed with the audien;e singing, \America the Beautiful.\ This program was greatly en- joyed by all and Miss Mahoney deserves much credit for the good showing that her pupils made.
