"The Other Fellow't Shoe" Is Title
Of Play With Five Picked
Players in Cast
The Slout Players, headed by L. j
Verne Slout, and composed of five
people, will present the comedy entitled,
"The Other Fellow's Shoe" at
the school auditorium next Tuesday'
evening, March 16th, at 7:30 o'clock. ,
Mr. tstout is the author of the comedy
and plays one of the leading parts
with Miss Ruth Whitworth supporting
him in the othei.
It is a 20th century inspirational
comedy of young America and business,
and members of the local lyceum
committee say that they are indeed
fortunate in securing this high
class company of players and "The
Other Felow's Shoes."
Advanced matter sent out by the!
publicity agent has the following to j
say in regard to the comedy:
"The Other Fellow's Shoes" is a I
modern 2l)th Century Comedy of|
American Business. It treats in a;
humorous way the difficulties and
trials that a young man brought up (
in the lap of luxury, skidde into !
bankruptcy, and then suddenly left j
with a million dollar breakfast food
plant on his hand, encountcd when1
he tries to run a business that he,
knows nothing about.
Of course there is a young giil in)
tl.e case also. She is the main rea-;
son why the young fellow does not
eC-H the plant and use the proceeds* J
to continue his spend thrift ways, in j
fact it drives home the point that
"Into the hands of the women, rests
the salvation of the World."
If you can't imagine the situation
confronted by a young man who
knows nothing about business, just
think back on vour last income report
or better go farther back and
recall your experience on the first
on * you ?u!k vvt.
This is not a weighty problem nlnv
It is primarily a comedy. Construct-'
ed to please and entertain. It will j
make you laugh hut you laugh the
thought will trickle through and start
The same guarantee goes with this (
play that we give with all our plays.!
If after seeing two nets of the play i
the committee feels it is not receiv-j
ing it's money's worth the play can
be stopped and Mr. Slout will accept j
nil financial responsibility for the
They say we've got smart men in
this country, and yet the miners and .

Taken by Thieve*
Thieves entered the office of the
lurphy Service Station Tuesday
light and rifled the cash register,
etting eleven dollars in money and
i pocketbook containing a number
if papers of little value. They also
arried off a Smith and Wesson revolver
which was in the drawer beleath
of the cash register.
W?hen he opened up Wednesday
doming Mr. George Ellis, Manager
liscovered that the office had been
>roken into. He roped off the enranee
which the thieves had forced
ind sent for the blood hounds.
The oft ice was entered through a
window on the east side. A nail
was used by the robbers through the
*creen to pry the latch loose, after
wh'ch the screen was easily lifted
out. The window pane was then
broken, and the robbers evidently
reached through the opening to unfasten
the window latch.
The blood hounds picked up the
trail and followed it down the river
for about three miles, to a boat landng.
After crossing over, the trail
was again picked up and carried
across the mountain to Notla River
ind up past the power plant. The
Hail ended at the house in which

iway jfrom it. The officer in charge
could not enter the house for the
eason that he did not have a search
warrant. However, later a search
rarrant was procured and the house
earched, but no evidence found. No
irrests were made. v

Of course tax-payers using a fiscal
