Workers Will Start Tun

Cave City, Ky., (By the Associated
Press). —The limestone roof- of Fl-oyd
Collins’ eavern was -reached at the base
of the rescue tunnel early this morning
at the 45-foot .stage and any minute the
diggers expect to find the crevice or cav
ern which can be opened sufficiently for
rescuers to work their way down to
Collins, pinioned in a n»k vise at the
foot of Sand Cave.
The down draft in the rescue shaft
became stronger this morning, nerving
the weary diggers to fresh efforts. The
return late last night of the western!
Normal football squad, excused from
• classes until the finish of the race against
dentil, also heartened the diggers, al
though they all realize probably two
days may elapse before they reach Col-1
lins unless fate points the way through j
an unexpected tunnel.
The bottom of the dirt and stone cap
overlying the roof of the old cavern
which once filled the iny Sand Cave val
ley was reached early this morning when
sheling • limestone appeared, with solid
rock not far ahead. More crevices be
gan to appear, increasing the down draft,
but none was yet found which would
indicate any sizeable tunnel. The cheer
ing developments, it was pointed *ut by
H. P. Carmichaeal was the reaching of
the crevice stratum, proving that a cav
ern was near at hand.
The return of the Western Normal
footbal squad which had worked all day
Monday threw the rescue squads into
a four-team race which is making the
dirt fly under almost superhuman drives.
Striving against the Normal gridiron
boys is a group of Louisville youngsters
composing another set of shifts.
Then there are two sets of veterans in
the senior division, the Kentucky Hock
Asphalt Company, professional miners.
And 'Hie Louisville and Nashville track
workers, being used to excavation work.
Despite additional tent shelters and
blankets received last night from the mil
itary stores, the diggers suffered much
from the cold and extra precautions were
taken by the hospital staff to insure that
none of the volunteers developed pneu
monia. Those who develop colds are
taken off the shift.
Shaft More Than 45 Feet Deep Now.
Cave City, Ky., Feb. 12.—The official
bulletin at 9 o’clock this morning, is
sued by M. E. S. Posey, engineering
representative of Governor Fields, said
that the depth of the Sand Cave rescue
shaft was about forty-five feet. He gave
9 o'clock Saturday night as the maximum
time in which the shaft would reach the
maximum depth to which it would be
"We appear to be close to the roof
. of the cave, and have speeded up the
rate of excavation to the rate of ten
feet in 24 hours,’’ Mr. Posey’s statement
said.- “There is great possibility of
finding an opening at any time.”
Tunnelling will start if Collins has
not been uncovered when the shaft
reaches 68 or 70 feet.

BITS OF INAUGURATION HISTORY
Much of Rrnunce and Color Is Found in
the Various Ceremonies.
Washington, D. C., Feb. 12.—Peering
back through the vista of year*—back
through the inauguration of Grant. Lin-
coln, Monroe, Jackson, Madison, Jefferson.
Washington and other of the notable
'Presidents of the United States—one
I finds much of romance and color. Indeed,
1 a close Study of the various eeremon'als
j attending inductions into the presiden
tial office is more or less a survey of tlfe
! gradual development of the nation and
j its changing customs and sentiments.
| Washington was inaugurated iu New
j York in 1789 for his first term, and trav-
I eied from Mount Vernon by horseback
! and liorse-drawn coaches. For his second
term Washington was inaugurated in
Ph’lade'phia. In th« meantime the Dis
trict of C'olumbin was proposed, but the
project had not become nn accomplished
fact at the beginuing of the term of John
Adams, so he also was inaugurated in
Philadelphia. When Jefferson was elect
ed the new Federal capital had been laid
out and named Washington and the “sage
of Monticello” was the first to be in
stalled here. Jefferson rode to Washing
ton on horseback from Monticello, and
was escorted into the city by a troop'of
cavalry. Alone he rode in a carriage to
the Capitol. About a thousand people
viewed his inauguration. The next in
augurntibn. thflt of is said to
hnve been attended by ten thousand peo
ple. President Monrpe was the first to
take the oath of office out of doors.
John Quincy Adams was not inaugur
ated ou March 4. because an election
contest in the House posti>oned the cere
mony until late that month. AVhen final
ly held it was the most elaborate cere
. mony of its kind. The inauguration of
! Andrew Jackson in 1829 probably would
I have been more elnborate had not the in
j coining President been in, mourning for
I his wife. He rode to the Capitol in a
I carriage constructed from the hull of the
jold frigate Constitution. President Van
Bureu’s inauguration was attended by
Citizen soldiery participated in such
ceremonies for the first time at the in
auguration of William Henry Harrison.
Tyler, who succeeded Harrison within a
month, took the oath privately without
ceremony or display of any kind while
the country was in mourning. President
President Polk appears to have been the
first to fee] the discomfort of being in
augurated in the open air in a vigorous
President Taylor's inauguration was
the first to fall on March 5. Millard
Fillmore, who became President through
the death of Taylor, succeeded to the of
fice without ceremony of any kind, al
though he took the oath before Con
gress. Pierce and Buchanan were in
augurated with the usual ceremonies.
Lincoln's first inauguration was nota
ble in many respects. The country on
the verge of civil war, trembled with mix
ed emotions. Lincoln's friends wefe-tttl
ed with apprehensions for his safety. For
the first time in Amerienn inaugurals
troops were ordered to the Capitol. I.iu
eolh's second inauguration reflected the
great war in which the country was
looked. The induction of Andrew John*
son after Lincoln's nss’ssitiation, was
conducted iu a room in a hotel without 1
Grant came into office with the great
est spectacular display seen up to that
time. President Hayes was surrounded
with elnborate precautions for his person
al safety, because of intense feeling en
gendered by the celebrated controversy
with Tilden. Garfield’s inauguration was
without unusual Incident. President 1
Arthur, in succeeding the martyred Gar
field, took the oath twice, first at home
In New York and again at the Capitol. 1
Ideal weather marked Cleveland’s first 1
inauguration, but Harrison was not so
fortunate with the weather for his inaug
uration, nor was Cleveland the second
time. McKinley had a beautiful day for 1
his first inauguration but a rainy one
for his second. Roosevelt’s inauguration
was the occasion for great demonstration.
Taft came in with a howling blizzard. 1
The inaugurations of Wilson and Harding
were without unusual, incident.

S. S. Institute Got Off
| To Fine Start Last Night
Despite the Rain First Ses
sion, Held in First Baptist
Church Here, Was Attend
ed by Many.
| THREE ADDRESSES
Dr. D. Burt Smith, D. W.
Sims and Miss Daisy Magee
Discussed Vital Sunday
School Subjects. '
I Notwithstanding the raih the first ses
, sion of the Concord Township Sunday
. School Institute, held in the First Hap
. t.ist (’hutch was well attended last-eve
The first speaker of the evening was
! I)r. D. Burt Smith. Philadelphia, Pa., of
, the Department of Sunday Schools, Unit
ed Evangelical Lutheran Church. His
, theme was “The Sunday School An Edu
cational .Compliment." In speaking on
the subject he said:
The tHVee underlying principles of
Sunday School work dated back to Bib
lical times, that early in Biblical Icstory
was found graded groups. A Supreme
Book, and methods of teaching.
■ There is an education outside the
church but the Sunday School adds to
that process iu rounding out the four
The Sunday School, continued the
speaker, should add intellectual content.
In Sunday School the pupils should be
taught to know the truth, to recall it, to
understand the why of it, and to use *t.
The conception of Christ should be so
definite that the truths for wh'eh He I
stood will be known, recalled, understood,
The Bible is a vital message from God,
and it should mean more than historical
facts to the children. Its message should
be to them a vital living truth which they
can use. The curriculum of the Sunday
School should be Bible centered.
In the second place the Sunday School
should standard the emotions. The con
trol of the emotions make life. This con
trol determines one of two things: wheth
er a person ,is for self or for others.
The person who 'lives only for self is a
dangerous person to the community, con
tinued tiie speaker, but he who lives for
others is a force for good to all.
Dr. Smith said there are three loves, a
love of passion, wliieh is given no place
in the Bible, a love of affection such as
exist between friends, and a selective love
as wa* denwiwtra)*d by G«d when , He. se
lected to give His Son for a sinful
world. All who give themselves for the
good of others show such love.
In the third place the Sunday School j
must-develop the social life. Social life!
never stands still. Its trend is either
upward or downward. Purpose of every
educational process is social. The Sun
day School which is an educational force
has the opportunity to grade the social
Everything that goes beyond self grat
ification is social, and all social acts in
The Sunday School must also educate
the vylll. causing the pupil to will to do
the right thing.
In speaking on the “Key to a Greater
Sunday School," D. IV. Sims, of Raleigh,
General Superintendent of the North
Carolina Sunday School Association, snid
“All keys have, three essentials—first
the handle, second the barrel, or shaft, to
conduct the power from the handle to the
points In the lock to be turned, and
third, the teeth, or that portion of the 1
key which actually turns the lock.” Ac-1
cording to Mr. Sims, the same three vital,
points hold true of the Sunday School |
key. The handle, he stated, is prayer. In i
this connection he referred to several
Sunday Schools that have have a ten or
fifteen minutes prayer service for the of
ficers and teachers of the Sunday School
immediately preceding the time for open
ing the regular session.
Efford, or work, was the next essential
•In the Sunday School which Mr. Sims
stated corresponds with the barrel or
shaft of the key. "A greater Sunday
School,” said the speaker, “means more
work, more planning, and carefully con
sidering weak points of the school by the
leaders.” Mr. Sims referred to the iin
portance of special effort being made be
tween Sundays to bring back absentees;
effort in looking after new pupils; effort
in planning a worth-while program; ef

snakes have no ears, but those little
