resulting in a meeting that was ex-
ceedingly lively, although orderly.

of tho balloting for the four dclc- -
gates to represent tho local pre

police and inspectors enabled the

Jonah B. Cummings, who .. helped
the Makees to win their 1920-2-

member that baseball in these parts
is always secondary to tho pursuit
of worldly and Jonah
no doubt owes it to himself to en-
deavor to climb another rung in
the ladder of success.

from tho electrical equipment. For
a little while, judging from out-

Then somebody happened to think
that It might be a good idea to pull
out the switch, and tho fir.o was all

Based on statistics gathered in
the United States, ono per cent of
the population at ho present time
is feeble-minde- averred Dr. Bliss.
To handle this situation adequately
will bo a tremendous strain upon
tho tax payers of tho country, and
as tho inheritance of feoblemind-nes- s
is established as a certain fact
tho problem grows ever a large
one. It Is now the greatest social
problem confronting us. At least
half the cases handled by our so
olal workers and by our jails aro
those of feebleminded persons. If,
however, wo could segregate such
casus so that no additional feeble
minded children should bo born to
them, wo could within 50 years re
duce feeblemindedness by 75 per
