Boiling Springs Fans Look
For A Fast Football Eleven
At Baptist School This Fall
Expert Blainrv Racklry To Build A
Winner. Start Training In
(By RE.VN BRIM)
Out Bolling Springs way and
among alumni of thr Baptist
school all over thl* srrtlon thr
word now la that there will he
some lively football played by
the eleven representing thr Bap
tist junior college this fall.
And the news, naturally, sounds
Last year without doubt the Bap
tist college had some of the best
appearing football materia! in tin
section of the state and the grid
fans, somewhat isolated from col
lege play in this section, sat up and
took interest. Perhaps It wouldn't
be long until Boiling Springs would
be playing Lenoir-Rhyne. Guilford
fend the smaller colleges with some
ftf the games coming to Shelby?
But, for some reason or the other.

the team failed to tome through. It
looked good when it trotted on the
field. Rig and lucky Fast-moving,
too. Yet it failed to win conslstent
ly, arid football fans like all other
fans like a winner.

must be said that the outlook is
First of till, Dlaitey Rackley, per
i Itaps the smartest little backfleld
man who ever wore the Demon
Deacons uniform at Wake F'orest
has been employed to coach the
Baptist eleven. Rackley, it is said,
will have the material, nnd the
Bolling Springs alumni, especially
the old Wnke Forest grads, believe
•he will deliver.
Start In August.
That Rackley means to exert
himself to put Ills coaching rep and
l the school on the map the first
year is evinced by the fact that he
has already sent word to the boys
who will be bark next year to get
out to the college by late August so
that he can start training early.
And that was one trouble with the
Junior college outfit last, fall—It
didn't get in good condition until ft
was time to play basketball.

Of particular Interest to Shelby
fans Is the announcement that the
fast. Oak Ridge prep school eleven
will play the Junior Baptists In
Shelby again this fall. If Rackley
delivers, that should be a pigskin
party worth missing some ol the
big games for.
Just how many of the huskies
who played for Coach Hammett

About The Fish Our
Boss Had Last Week
"Filled with Pasquotank fish."
Mr. Bost telegraphs from Eliza
beth City, of President Lee Weath
ers of the Ptpss association; "fish
so frtsh from the Pasquotank river
that, they were still wiggling when
they hit the frying pan"; "four
miles into the country to eat
freshly-caught fish," "the fish frv
on the river bank was the event of
the day." Doggone, that is what
comes of sending a political and
theological expert to do an im
portant news story. Fish? Fish?
What kind of fish, man?
It will occasion no surprise if
Mr. Bost, instead of supplying the
information essential to his story,
should reply that what was good
enough in narrative style for the
holy evangelistic chroniclers, cit
ing Matthew 14. Luke 5, Luke 9.
Mark 6. Is good enough for him.
If we did not know that all these
stories were inspired, we'd say
they are defective, from a news
point of view. Not to mention
Jonah. Of course, if Jonah had
not been inspired to be so vague in
his ichthyology, while the reams
and volumes of argument thus pro
voked would have avoided, there
might nevertheless have been quite
as much argument if he had, for
instance, declared it was a whale
that used him as bait. But it would
have been much more satisfactory
if he had gone ahead and told
exactly what fix he was in. There
is this to be said for Jonah, how
ever: never having been in the
same predicament before, he could
not be expected to identify the
predicament, and it is quite pos
sible he did not see what happened
to him before it happened—or for
that matter, after.

First Trial of Black-Draught
Convincing, Says Lady,
Who Escaped Suffering
By Taking it,
Jackson, Miss.—"My first experi
ence with Black-Draught convinced
me that It was a good medicine,”
says Mrs. Ida Kersh, 311 South Con
gress Street, this city, who says she
has taken Black-Draught for years.
“My trouble,” writes Mrs. Kersh,
"was sick headache which seemed
to be caused by constipation. I
used to have a thick, slimy taste In
my mouth, and such a tired, bad
feeling. This would be followed by
headache and sick stomach. I would
have to stop my work and go to bed.
"I read about Black-Draught and
decided to try it I found that by
taking the Black-Draught In time,
I could ward off these sick spells.
"And so for the* last twenty years,
when I feel the least bit bad, I take
Black-Draught and feel that It has
saved me much pain and sickness.”
Constipation dams up poisons In
the bowels, where they are absorbed
Into the general system, causing
many serious symptoms.
Thousands of letters of praise
from users of Thedford’s Black
Draught, on file at the laboratories
where Black-Draught Is made, tes
tify to the high esteem In which
It Is held for the relief of consti
