Henry Ford says that in case of
this government going to war he
will be able to build one thousand
submarines per day. We don't
doubt but that Henry could do it
but we are of the opinion that he
will have to equip them with
self starter as it would be a devil
of a wet job to get out and crank
All our higher up officials in the
army are strong for universal
training and some of them are
continually trying to throw a
scare into us common folks by
prophesying a terriable invasion
by some imaginary foe. Such a
a thing as an invasion by forergn
troops might happen, even the
planet Mars might strip her gears
and run slap dab into old mother
earth, but that's not likely to hap
pen. It's a darn poor man that
won't boost his own business and
thai, perhaps, accounts for the
predictions of our army officers.
Of course we are not complain
mg, put we do want to again call
th« attention of our local readers
to the fa£t that we have a tele
phone in our office (No. 21) and
it would be a great favor to us and
your many friends away from here
if you would just take a moments
time and teli us if you are going
away on a visit or if you have
company or any other matter that
would make an interesting news
note. We are quite busy in the
office most of the time and are
unable to get all the news items,
and as it costs you nothing but a
little time you could help us con
siderable if you will just tell us
the news. A certain individual
who has spent the winter in anoth
er state said the other day "I was
always anxious to get the Inde
pendent to see what was going on
in and around Cashion while I was
away, and if the people around
here would just be courteous to
the paper by phoning little hap-
penings, the paper would be much
better." We had to agree with
him and we are now asking you
to help us make the Independent
a bigger and better paper and we
will try and return the favor.
The ladies of the E. T. C, Club
entertained their husbands and a
few friends, encluding the editor
and wife, at the home of Mr and
Mrs. H. N. Murray one mile south
of town. The meeting was call
ed to order by the President, Mrs
F. A Perry, and about forty two
people were present. Members
responded to roll call by quott«
tions, readings and music after
which the evening was spent, in
playing games, music and a soci-
able visit. Prior to serving sup-
per the ladies proposed a guessing
contest, whereby each gentleman
was obliged to secure a partner
by recognizing her shoe which
was displayed under p drapery,
but after a few uncesstul guesses
the men g"ave it up and filed out
into the dining room and seated
themselves at the table This
was the end of the guess work and
the ladies were obliged to eat at
second table. An excellent sup
per was served and it is impos
sible for us to give the menu as
we were unable to sample all the
dishes they were so numerous.
At a late hour the guests depart
ed, thanking Mr. and Mrs Mur
ray for their kindness. Personally
we had a very pleasant evening
and are more than ever convinced
that clubs and association of this
character are a great benefit to a
community in an educational and
moral way. We wish to express
our thanks to the ladies of the E.
T. C. Club for their kindness in
remembering us at this meeting
and we believe that th*y are a
potent factor in the upbuilding of
their commuuity as well as a link
strengthening the interests of the
men in matters pertaining to the
general welfare of the community

Wood Has The Greatest Weather Resistance
According to the plans and specifications of the
great Architect, Noah built an ark that withstood the
rain for forty days and forty# nights. The plans call-
ed for a certain kind of timber and certain dimensions
The water prevailed upon the earth one hundred and
forty days; every living creature perished save those
in the protection of lumber. Can we get any better
building material than that which has the stamp of
this Architect on it? His wisdom is never excelled
by man's invention.
Lumber has ever been man's best friend-from
the cradle and the homes of the living to the shrouds
of the dead. It is more sanitary than other building
material and just as warm when properly dried and
Noah has proven to us that there is no better pro-
tection from the weather to both man and beast than
a shelter built of lumber.
We have on hand a good stock of lumber and will
cheerfully give prices and estimates when called upon
