A. Little wbo edited the News- Ttmea this week for tbe last time will ^ * apeak tomorrow (Friday) afternoon be / li- tore the Buckeye Press association at Ma Mg convention held In Lima. AA thia convention there will be the greatest of newspaper <men of tho United States. Among other speakers at the convention la Governor Cox, Oeneral Manager Baker of the Plain Dealer, President of the Western Nawepaper Union, Arthur Brisbane, noted newspaper man and many others well versed ln the field of Journalism. The Speech. The text of Mr. Little's speech Is as follows: Mr. President, and Gentlemen of the Fourth Batata:— 1ft view of the fact that there are so many efficient speakers on today's program, I feel confident that you will agree with my fellow-townsmen who, whenever a good speaker ls desired at any of our gatherings, OO NOT call on B. A. Little, for they aay his ability trends toward the pen or pencil aad not to the silvery flow ot the tongue. But I shall do my utmost to present the topic I have been assigned la aa concise a manner aa possible ln this brief talk. * Tha only way to make a newspaper pay In any field Is by hard work, backed by an Intelligent study of the field. I'm sure most of the men here know that statement ls true, and that moat of you have had your share of bard work and long hours, at a smaller salary than that earned by many a day laborer. In our field there are three large cities whose papers reach ua dally. Tbe Cleveland papera could hardly be called competitors. Nowadays v/e argue that every family ahould take a good dally paper, for the atate, national and International news they pon- taln and also for the timely political. sporting and market news. The Blyrla paper, managed by our . friend Burke, doaa not bother us much. •X poaslbly Iter' physical reasons the Chronicle-Telegram ls riot able to reach ua the same day as printed, and few like to read a dally paper that la 14 or even 12 hours old. Thin simplifies' matter's somewhat for us—for tha Telegram ls so good a newspaper that tt might give us a run for our money If It once came Into Amherst. The Lorain Times-Herald, however, haa been a problem with us. When wa flrst came to Amhesrt, nearly 3 years ago, the Lorain paper bad a circulation In our town of about 600, and tha Amherst weekly paper had but a email number of actual subscribers. At the present moment, the Lorain daily la sending in possibly 450 papers with a steady loss In circulation, and wo have built our list up to more than that of the weekly of three years ago and all our subscribers are paid-in- advance. They have been put on the lift without tho aid of a contest or premium of any kind. i . Tha.only solicitation we have tried' Arizona, haa been the casual, common-place kind. Upon meeting or talking with a person whom we know ia not on our list, wo Invariably tell htm he should bo taking the News-Times and wa toll him why. Nine Wines out of ten . ho aaya, "Well, put me down for a year." When the year is up he receives notice that hla subscription is due and payable, and if he doesn't come across within a reasonable time hla name la taken from the list. Moat of our subscribers renew promptly. What arguments de we use? The boat one we have se our stock in trade la that our weekly edition gives full details of any event that haa happened or la about to take place, which tho Lorain paper, even though it car- riea an Amherst corner, cannot do. (Continued on back page) A new meat market known as the Quality Moat Market will open for business for the flrst time Saturday, i Feb. tt In the Dellefield building on Park avenue. It will be managed by Carl Dellefield and company. The store room was formerly ueed for a meat market and with many changes It has boon modernly equipped. Mr. DellefleM Bays It Is his object to give the customers of his market the best meats from a sanitary and flrst class shop. NEW SCHOOL BUILDING CREATES TALK MAJORITY OF PEOPLE SEEM TO BE IN FAVOR OF IMPROVEMENT. The proposition ot building a new school houae of some kind has created much talk in Amherst since the time it was brought up. There seems to be much public opinion in favor ot the proposition. The local board of education has met several times with the Township board. It le the hope of, the local board to co-operate with tbe township board and build a high school building large enough to accommodate pupils from both territories. Although the local board of education has not met for some time It has been continually working on the new improvement for Amherst which la left In Its hands. It Is the plan of the board to visit the various new school buildings of the surrounding territory. Wellington and Willoughby have recently put up new schools and many ideas for the one proposed here may be taken from them. Kind Not Yet Known. The kind of building that the board wants to erect has not yet been decided upon. Tbe members of the board wish to have more time to investigate the different modern school buildings before putting, the matter to the people. : In building, the board will have to think of the future ot Amherst. The present building has adequately housed the children of the town tor educational purposes tor ten years. At the end of that period the building became overcrowded and Amherst haa needed a new building ever since. The mattes will be brought to the citizens of Amherst ln a special election. Several years ago this method was used and for several reasons the project waa defeated. It ls honed that the people of Amherst will see the need of a new building here and pass the Issue without any hesitation. The local teachers are constantly complaining about tbe lack ot room ln the present echool structure and If Amherst wishes to be on the map ln the educational world and wants to give her children an education equal to that given ln larger cities a larger building and more facilities will be needed. BOY SCOUTS HIKE. The local troop of Hoy Scouts Journeyed to thi* edge of Lake Erie H-itur- day on nn exploring trip. The trip i was enjoyed by all the hoys present. Dinner for the bunch was cooked by themselves and they assure everyone that it realty tasted good. While at the lake attempts were made lo fish 'hrough the Ice. but the i liuys did nut meet with much sue* I oSM at this venture. The local troop plans to have many such outings this spring. They were accompanied by their scoutmaster, It. It. Johnson. GAS COMPANY OFFICIAL HERE t LOOKS INTO THE OAS NEEDS OF i AMHBRST—APPROVES EXTENSIONS OF LINES. YOU CAN.

Thomas Brennen recently. received a box of metals containing gold, silver and copper from an uncle in YOUNG BOY BADLY KICKED ESTAROIS TRIMMED DY FURNITURES VISITORS GET ROUGH, GET IT BACK WITH INTEREST—34 TO 21. J. F. Ohnstead, Oeneral Sperinten- dent of distribution of the Logan Natural Oaa ft Fuel Co. of Columbus Is In Amherst today. He called on Mayor J. J. Smythe and John Fritz, local manager of -the Logan company. With the agent several phases of the gaa situation were looked Into and decisions were made on many matters. It ls the aim of the company to Improve Its service ln this town as much as possible. In several places extensions are needed and these will be taken care of before another winter. Dead lines on streets where gaa la ne longer used will be cut off. Mr. Olmstead says that the company wishes to ahow its appreciation for the raise in rates granted them here. It was necessary that the rates be raised and no objection waa made on the port of the people here. New Applianeee Help Conserve. Many new appliances for gas atoves have been Invented recently end are now being demonstrated at tho local gas ofllce. New stoves that give a •good flame with one-half ounce pressure can be purchased. The gas company is asking every user to look at his stove and see If the burner ls placed lower than necessary from the top plate. Burners too far from the kettle waate gas. It takes more time to heat anything with the burner so low down. Many local people have tried adjusting their stoves as suggested and have found they get better results. Mr. Olmsted cited one Instance of a man who complained because he could not cook with gas. The pressure was tested and and ounce and a half was found. His stove waa readjusted and cleaned put and he had so much pressure that he could not uae all of it. Mr. Olmatead emphaalsed the necessity of letting the gaa company know when you have trouble. Tho local manager can often help you to adjust your stove and offer a suggestion that will save you much annoyance and inconvenience.

One of the "fllghtlngest" basketball games of the winter season was that played last Friday night at the gym when the Furnitures trimmed the Lorain Estarols by a score of 34 to 21. The visitors ran several in stars ln an attempt to get revenge for a former defeat, and ea*rly ln the contest the "rough stuff" started. The Amherst boys returned it and with a good margin to spare, much to the delight of most of the onlookers. The end of the flrst half saw the Furnitures leading 17 to 15. Mitchell went in, and when the visitors grabbed a lead of two points, Chippy Bruce, just up from the sick bed, was placed ln forward position. He tied the score within a half minute, and grabbed four more before the end of the game. The Estarols never made a point after Chippy entered the game. And he •was watched. Three or four Lorain men attempted to keep him from the basket, but he led them a marry chaae. A number of fouls called on the locals for their off-plays were made In the open and easily discernible. No one blamed them however. Milton Baumhart made several beautiful baskets on long shots. His brother waa a bear in guarding. Lett- enberger of Lorain played wall in the first half, and so did Nick Bruce. Kratt put up his usually good game. For tha Estarols Esslg, former high school atar, played the heat. The raat wore only fair, rega (Mass of their reputation*. Attttnunrmrnt With thiB issue of The News-Times, E A Little, editor and manager of the News company for the last nine months, and previous to that proprietor of the Little Print Shop and Amherst Times, severs his connection with the company. Mr. Little has taken the managing editorship of a large trade journal, the Bean Bag, published in the interests of bean growers, Jobbers and dealers, an industry covering the states of Michigan, New York, Colorado, California, New Mexico, South Carolina, and foreign countries, notably Japan and Korea. Publication offices will be established in a central Michigan city, probably Lansing. The Journal is now published,at St. Louis, has a circulation of about 2,000, ls issued monthly, and normally contains 64 pages. R. L. Petty of Elyria comes into the News company as the new manager. He is an experienced business man, a top-notcher as a printer, and will inevitably make the company more than ever a power ln the affairs of Amherst. He will find the company in most excellent shape, financially and mechanically, and has a well established business right from the start. So "Ev" is leaving. Since coming here nearly three years ago, we have built up many lasting friendships, have been honored in many ways by the community, and will leave with a feeling of deepest regret, though naturally looking forward with promise to the future. To those who helped us when things looked darkest, and to those who stayed with us and co-operated in so many ways when the horizon took on a rosier hue, we truly say, from the bottom of our heart: "Thank you, and Ood bless you." B. A. LITTLE. and urged that the rights which had been secured after many years of struggle and even bloodshed, and which are now protected by the Constitution, should not be bartered away to satisfy the towering ambition of one man nor lost by the trickery ot foreign statesmen scheming to draw America into their disputes. Referring to the fact that the working men, the common citizens of this country had furnished by far the greatest number of soldiers ln all our wars, that the sons of these men had seldom sought or received exemption in the late world war, while the sons of the rich had often both sought and received exemption from utility service or been placed in safe and secure positions 3500 miles awuy trom all danger, that number ot sons of common citizens, even from Lorain county were "sleeping In the poppy fields of France." Mr. Stetson said in part, "You men, the workers who earn your bread by the sweat of your brows, who live not by generous Incomes but by the toll of your hands, form the backbone and sinew of the country, I do not believe that you are willing after all these yeurs of progress made by this nutlon largely through the efforts of men like you, will now permit thut progress to be checked or lost by entering entangling alliances against which Washington so earnestly warned. I have Infinite faith in tbe final Judgement of the common, ordinary, every-day American citizen whose forefathers helped to establish this nation as the land of the free and the home of the brave, who fought to preserve as a nation ln tho days of Lincoln antl whose sons have so recently offered themselves as sacrifices to protect our civilization and win the great world wur. ' 1 don't believe these men, slower, perhaps in judgement, but of unquestioned patriotism und loyally und of undaunted courage, knowing as we do that our past progress and success have cojue because we have followed the plans of the fathers laid down lu the Constitution, I don't believe that these men desire now to forsake the course which has brought success and progress and be drawn by this League of Nations in Its present form into all the trouble and quarrels of Europe, Asia, Africa or any other foreign country." Atter the speech a fine musical program wus also given. I other ways. When the organisation I '•..is Ilrst started it was compelled to | meet In the Council room of the Town Hall. Afterward, however, through the generonlty of the Atlas Engineering company u room was given them In the Park bank building. Since that time meetings have been held weekly and sometimes more often and tbe ex-soldiers huve taken much pleasure In the rooms. The Legion turned out In a body to award the Distinguished Service Cross to the mother of one of Amherst's fallen heroes. On Armistice day the largest percentage of the members appeared tn ranks and were given a formal welcome home by tbe people of Amherst. On Fell 16, the greatest dance ever given at Redington hall was conducted by the local post. At that dance the Legion showed Its ability In managing an entertainment and It met with hearty approval here. Several hundred dollars were made by tho dance which "served to Replenish thtT treasury of the Legion. This will be used to start a building fund. The soldiers wish larger quarters for their clubrooms and mean to earn them partly themselves. The locul officers of the post have attended muny state and national meetings and have brought home mes- MfSg for the organization. The Legion has taken a stand on Americanism, and hopes to carry out the pro stitution on the part of the farmer's wife. Just to Illustrate the way the Investments of the farm are arranged the farmer buys a binder, spends about two hundred dollars for It and uses it four or five days a year. For the same amount of money he could buy an electric outfit and save his wife steps every day In the year by pumping water, lighting, running | ^"^TSiw every post"of "the the washing machine, the sewing machine-, the churn, or anything she wants to run. The man too will get benefits from the light produced, ami hy installing small motors here and there he can operate the cream separator, milking machine, pump water for the stock, grind feed, run the grindstone, and numerous other small machines around the barn and house. The demonstration wus something Of a revelation to some of those who saw It and the lectures brought them to see their work und their Investments in a different light, no doubt.
