The Supreme Court did a great thing when it declared
AL. US FELLOWS that don't know anything about bank
statements, when we see them, we cant tell whether they are
good, bad or indifferent. .
Now we do know that when We have got
a dollar in a State Bank, she is as good
as a Goverment Bond.
Those fellows in the east buy government bonds that pay four
per cent interest and pay sixteen per cent premium for them.
I buy four per cent Time Certificates of Deposit and they
don't cost me a penny premium. They are just as safe and
just as good as a Government Bond. By gum she is a great law.

Fighting bravely against over
whelming odds and up against
a team which has been working
hard all season, the Lexington
High School football team was
defeated Saturday afternoon by
the Lindsay High schoolers on
the Lindsay field by a score of
an even 30 to 0. The local lads
took defeat gracefully and came
back at their antagonists Sat-
urday evening, at a reception
tendered in thtfir honor, with a
spirit of good fellowship and
one entirely foreign to the spirit
manifested by . them on the
gridiron a few houre before.
The game was a rough and
tumble affair from start to. fin-
ish and a goodly number of the
boys came home with marks of
the fray. They were in the
game with a heart although
the score would credit them with
being outclassed. They were
outclassed in weight and play-
ing ability but not in stubborn-
ness and true fightig spirit. The
\mdsay gridironers averaged
. er 150 pounds and their back
field tipped the beams at 162,
The newcomer to a city should
npt be too ready to express his
views as to how things should
be conducted; in other words
he should acquaint himself with
existent conditions before he
attempts any radical assertions.
In this matter, the Leader is
just now vitally interested. We
are comparatively new to Lex-
ington and have not had ample
time to ascertain who's who and
what's what with things and
beings here. We do not wish by
our sayings to order or direct
but rather to suggest and agi-
We can look at Lexington
with the same consideration
that an outsider would; we can
form an impression; as editors
we can give our opinion as if it
were public, because we have
the medium of the newspaper.
We must use the newspaper in
a way to better conditions here
and build up the town. When
there is boosting needed the
newspaper should be the organ
to make the music.
