Here is the first published standing

after the "close of thP first period of
The Press Salesmanship Club Wed
nesday night, April 15. Did they "go
over the top?" We'll say so. Com
pare their relative standing of today
with the published standings April
10, and you will say so.
Excitement and intense activity
prevails among the Club Members in
the' Salesmanship Club campagin as
each c,lub member, realizes that she
"is in reach of a pri;:e worth as much
as .$650.fl) and to bP won or lost dur

"Second Perod" is on, and which ex

Club Members arc now going after
. every subscription, and extention on
subscriptions that they have secured
earlier in the campaign, in sight;
they realise that they must fortify
their present standing w'ith tvery
available subscription and extension
as, at the present writing it is "any
body's race." So close are the heacU
liners running that any one of them
can win a motor car in' the short time
ThP First Period of the salesman
ship club, which closed Wednesday
night, was a great success. Tens of
thousands yes, hundreds of thous
andsof credits were issued and
every "LIVE" club member profited
mightily. v ;
It is a strange coincidence, too
and something very unusual in af
fairs of this kind, but a number of
these club members who were striv
ing for thP capital prize auto bene
fited so equally during the perion
lust closed that not without Hair line
figuring could today's leader be de
The campaign, therefore, so far
as the relative standing of the club
members are concerned, depends al
most entirely upon thP results at
taind by the different club members
between now and the finish of the
campaign as to whom thP winner
The above is not "mere talk" for
the sake of telling it. but it is a
real fact theories and' ridiculous,
silly rumors notwithstanding. Hence
the struggle for supremacy-will be
fought out during the next few weeks
because thP campaign comes to a
close in less than threj Weeks from
, During the second credit period
ending Friday night, April 24, at 9
o'clock sharp, subscriptions will count
BIG and there is a BIG lot of them
o be obtained if you make the effort
to secure them, in fact, they count
almost as many credits now as they
did in the First Period. For example
a six-year subscription turned in dur
ing the Second Period counts 330,000
credits where formerly 420,000 credits
were given. Then, too. EXTEN
SIONS COUNT BIG. IT WILL PAY
YOU NOT TO OVERLOOK THEM.

The North Carolina Tuber

Warning Colds Should be
There was once a laborer who.went
to work in the "rattlesnake country."
Knowing that he was unacquainted
with the danger threatening them all, .
his. fellow workers explained in de-
it.iit "Mnt Hn tint mrr
! they added. "The snake always
, warns you of his coming by rattling
nis tan, at. noon time the laborer
vy-'is sitting on a log eating his lunch
listening to nothing, and . hearing
- nothing.' Suddenly glancing .down-
! ward ho looked straight into the
f1'1', -i;cni.nK .of a ,sna-
Lunch liu! laborer (lew .into the air,
and as the. man ran. he. yelled, "Why
you nrr ringa da l.el! "
j Cold .are warnings. Heed them.
1 They iv'r, ..ie.at. that you are "run-
mmi. ; vui arc not resting
nu arc not
enriigii: you Me ;lrai(l ot getting too
much fresh air; or thatyou are mak
ing a hot-house plant of your skin..
They also warn of the future for, if
neglected, cold may "stir up" some
encimy which is sleeping within you.
It is as though a robber (a germ of
tuberculosis for instance) should
have made his way into a house (the
body) and, finding the inhabitant too
alert, carefully hid himself until the
owner should go to bed. While wait
ing he fell asleep. Another thief,
(common cold) meanwhile, climbed
in and stumbled over the first one.
Being aroused the erstwhile sleeping
thief started to shoot. The owner of
the housp wakened to find his home
Colds do not "run j.nto" pneumonia
or tuberculosis, kidney disease, heart
trouble or rheumatism but they may
lower the body's resistance to these
other troubles and "add fuel to fires."
Therefore, while a cold may be a
very simple thing, it sometimes does
tremendous harm. You can not know
what germ is hiding in your system
waiting for its chance to grow and
spread, so do not give it the oppor
tunity by neglecting a common cold.
Obviously the best thing is to avoid
catching a cold by observing the
rules of preventing the spread of
excretions, etc. I would add this to
the advice already given: Give your
skin a chance to help you to keep
well. Your skin was made so that
it could protect you. Help this pro
cess along -with cold water. Take a
cold spongp bath daily. Then don't
coddle your skin by burying it under
layers of thick banncl and wools.
Don't be afraid of fresh air. Learn
how to expose " yourself properly
If vou should catch cold DO
SOMETHING! DO SOMETHING!
Don't neglect it. In other words
when you are in the rattlesnake
country keep your ears open I
