Anderson bases his statement on a state-wide postcard poll which he has been tonducting for the last month On the basis of a million votes in the Democratic pri- mary, Hines should lead the Jist with 350,000, says Anderson. D'Daniel will be second with 270,000, Sadler third with 170,- 100, Mrs. Ferguson fourth with 14,000, and Deraen a weak fifth.

Memories of Poe are treasur- ed by those who knew him as a ifootball star at Princeton in the '90s, as a soldier with the Fifth Maryland Infantry in the Philippines during the Span- ish-American War, and with the Kentucky militia during a mountain feud in 1903. Poe's restless spirit sought the action he had failed to find in his previous military service. He joined the U. S. Marines when President Theo- dore Roosevelt sent an addi- tional force of sea soldiers post haste to Panama in 1904, in view of trouble over the seces- sion of that country from Col- umbia. The Marines brought peace to Panama without much trou- ble, so Poe left the...

"TESTING Conduct by Its Use- fulness" is the subject of today's lesson. Ezekiel, a prophet who is thought to have written the lines which comprise today's lesson in 591 B. C., was in captivity at the time, but he did not cease giving his message to his people, and warning them against the dan- gers threatening them because of their disobedience to the Lord's will.

Vernon's population shows an eighteen per cent in- crease from former figures of 1930, with 1940 population be- ing 1,443 compared with 1,222 in 1930. The Mt. Vernon post office accordingly announced a jump into second class from the former third class rank. GILMER shows a larger jump in population, percentage in- creasing sixty per cent, 3,129 this year compared with 1,962 in 1930.
