AND YET ANOTHER TURNIP Jess Brewer of Route! One came wagging in a turnip this week that weighs four pounds and seven ounces beating the whopper that John Whitaaker grew by three ounces. Mr. Brewer brought in one last week but it failed to come up to the "pattern already set so he said he would take another look-and the result is in our window. Unless Mr. Whitaker can find'a bigger one or some other turnip grower in the county wakes up Jess is going to get that year's Subscription to the Democrat and the title of Adair County's champion turnip grower. TWO ADAIR COUNTY BOYSjV WIN TRIP TO K. d. SffoW FREEWATER The last few years have seen' the rise of a new industry in the Southr- that of cheese manufacture-says the United States Department of Agriculture. In 191^ no cheese factories operated in the South. In 1915 two small co-operative factories were organized in the mountain section of North Carolina, and these factories manufactured during that year 15,000 pounds of cheese valued at $3,000. During the next five years many small co-operative factories were organized and operated in the mountain section-of the South, where it was found a good quality of cheese could be made. The �volume of milk, however, increased very slowly. In 1927 a cheese factory was opened in Mississippi. It was successful, and at once the cheese industry expanded very rapidly. Sixty-three factories were opened in several of the Southern States .where heretofore it was the common belief that because of climatic conditions cheese factories could not be operated successfully. The fact that in 1928 the South manufactured more than 6,000,000 pounds of cheese, valued at 81,000,000 or more, with the State i{ Mississippi alone making 2,5OO,0lk/ pounds, is evidence that cheese manufacture is likely to become an established industry in this section. -,---- Ralph Lee made a business trip to Ft. Smith Wednesday. School was dismissed Friday p. m on acount of Mrs. Albert Hill death. She was a good woman and had been in poor health for several years.

Two Adair County boys have been selected to make the trip this year. John Holloway and Renfrew Brewer both boys live south of town. John Holloway is a student of the Cave Springs High School (U. G. No. 1) and Renfrew Brewer is a student Af Stilwell High School. Both boyB have been selected for this honor because of their good wok in"vocational Agriculture. Local quail hunters are agog over the revelation by local research hounds that the quail season is to be a day short thiB year. As usual the season opens November 20 and closes January 1. The law allows hunting on Mon days,' Wednesdays and Fridays during the season. Its the provision of the law which allows' hunting also'on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years, regardless of the day of the week, which brings about the shortage. Christmas day this years falls on Wednesday, a legal hunt ing day anyway. Last year Christmas day fell on Tuesday giving hunters three days in succession to make the bag limit of 10 birds in any one day or 50 for the entire season. ---g-------:-- Mrs. Gene White and Mrs. Floyd Fay were in Ft.

STILWELL AND CHECOTAH PLAY A 6 TO 6 GAME Pirates Score in Last Quarter to overcome Checotah Lead Gained in First Quarter of Game ' CHECOTAH, Nov. 8.-A spectacular 78-yard return of the opening kick off for a Touchdown, by Day, Checotah fullback, enabled the fight Wildcats to tie Stilwell's husky team here 6-6, in a real thriller. The Pirates; threatened twice in the first three periods, but were unable to score until the final quarter. A 60 yard march to Checotah's 30-yard line, in the second was ruined by a fumble and near the end of the third the McLemore team drove to the 14-yard line, to lose the ball when ithe Wildcat forwards held for four downs. In the fourth starting from the Checotah 40-yard stripe, the visitors ran it over on a series of line plays and end runs, Trentham counting the touch down. The line-smashing and passing of Trentham and end runs by Fletcher featured the Pirates' attack, and in their line. For Wildcats, end runs by Ryan and the defensive play of Bal-lantyne, Cheney, Cantrell and Reynolds were high lights. Cheney played Arnold, Stilwell's fine center, to a standstill. Courtney's punting was excellent.
