Many of the boys who were in my drop, in lo sec ine find they always remind me of the spankings I administered by the way of discipline.

S. farmers for not cultivating their land reminds me of a letter 1 -received .from A said 'A friend of mine in New England has a neighbor who received a govern- ment check for this year for not raising hogs. So my friend now wants to 6" into business himself. He says that the Idea of not rais- ing hogs appeals to him strongly. Of course he will need a hired man and that is where I come In. I wrild (or your opinion on the best kind' of farm hot Id raise hog's on, the best strain of hogs not to raise and how best to keep an inventory of hogs you arc not raising. Also rlo you think that capital could be ralscdi by issuance of a non hog raisins; gold bond? The friend who got the got it for not raising 500 hogs: Now we figure we might easily not raise 1500 lo 2000 hogs so you see the possible profits are only limited by the number of hogs we du not raise." -Pl- SHOULD have been an outstanding evening WHS marr- ed for me by the pitifully smalJ audience that greeted the concert by Ihc High School A Cappclla Choir Tuesday evening. A polished performance by an outstanding group of students was greeted by an audience that scarcely numbered a hundred persons. Hours of pains- taking practice and hard work on the part of both students and di- rector was in evidence for it was a splendid performance by the most talented high school group of its kind I have ever heard. Not only did the people who should have been there hut were not, miss a fine concert, did but they also miss- ed a. chance lo encourage these young people in a most laudable undertaking. Encouragement which ihcy surely deserve. iNDrVlD'UAL intelligence and 'backbone are still necessary for modern civilization despite the .tendency to gather In huge groups uid holler yes to a loud orator, fjUniNG THIS WEKK the Panola County .Chamber of Commerce will be engaged in Its annual mem- bership drive.
