time, Duke capturing the game
by a three and two scora.
The Duke team has just re*

are a fine looking bunch of
chaps and are eager to play all
teams looking for a good clean
game. Batteries for Duke were

Is Your Money Working
As It Should ?
Is it helping to build up Duke and the surrounding
country or is it helping to build up some other town?
Is it buried and serving no one or is it de-
posited in the local Bank, where it will be
used to help your neighbors and friends?

ence of curious if not saddened
spectators poured 250 gallws of
liquor into the sewer.
The work consumed the greater
portion of the day and one step-
ping into the basement of the
courthouse might have thought
he was stepping into a grog shop
judging by the smell; in addition
to the 250 gallons of liquor 540
gallons of cider, several cases of
beer and small quantities alcho-
hoi, pnd even "nigger*'gin went
the sewer route.
This represents accumulations
of about 2 1-2 years and was con-
crete evidence of the vigilance of
