HISTORICAL The White City Register. VOLUME XXXVI WHITE CITY, KANSAS, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1922 NUMBER 30 HENRY E. GREINER Henry E. Greiner passed away at his home in Parkerville early the morning of Sunday, February 5, after an' illness of about two years. Funeral services were held in the Baptist Church at Parkerville, conducted by Rev.

Tally, assisted by Rev. Burton and Rev. Spry of that place. Interment was made in the Parkerville cemetery. Services at the grave were conducted by the I.

0. 0. F. lodge of Parkerville. At the time of his death, Mr.

Greiner had attained the age of 57 years, 8 months and 16 days. He leaves to mourn his loss; his wife: a daughter, Mrs. Arthur Lewis; and a son, Homer Greiner. The Greiner family has lived in and around Parkerville and White City for the past 37 years. LEVI TYSON Levi Tyson, father of Harry Tyson and Mrs.

Frank Carson of this city. passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Ferguson at Philadelphia, Friday, February 3. W. F.

M. S. The Women's Foreign Missionary society met Thursday afternoon, February 2, with Mrs. Lee Williams. There was a good attendance and several visitors.

Aside from the short review of the lesson, a special feature of the afternon's program was a parlor play by seven of the members, entitled "How Not To Do It." This play demonstrated the wrong way to keep an interest in the missionary society. Mrs. Simmons acted as president, Mrs. Nellie Nelson, secretary; Mrs. treasurer; and Mrs.

Bacon, Mrs. Dodderidge, Mrs. Mott, and Miss Ellen Gustafson took the other parts of the play. It was well acted out and created no little amusement. Too it was a vivid description of the condition of many societies.

We would tender our appreciation to the ladies for their effort and we congratulate ourselves in that the condition portrayed by the play does not apply to the missionary societies of our church, either Foreign or Home. Special music was given by Mrs Mickey and Mrs. Honey. The silver offering amounted to $5.15. -Secretary.

"A SOUTHERN CINDERELLA" GIVEN AGAIN IN WHITE CITY The ladies of the Royal Neighbors lodge gave their play again Monday night at the M. E. Church. The play itself was possibly some improvement over its former showing and the between acts were different than before. The crowd was not SO big this time and the gate receipts were consequently not as large either.

We understand that half of the money was given to the M. E. Church. Abraham Lincoln The steady honest purpose that made of the raw stripling of the wilderness the head of our nation is a story to inspire every boy to greater deeds. Every American should have graven on his heart the example 'of Abraham Lincoln's life and teaching as a standard of high endeavor and matchless rectitude.

The Farmers State Bank DEPOSITS GUARANTEED Phil is gone to Manhattan, leaving me busy selling a car of corn, flour and feed. We will have another car of corn and also a car of Weir City coal on track the first of next week. Flour is going up and you had better put in your summer's supply of Best Yet and Peacock Flour at the low prices. BILLY Dodderidge Elevator SCHOOL BONDS SOLD TUESDAY $75,000 bonds for the new school house were sold above par to the Guaranty Trust Company of Kansas City, Tuesday. The bonds will draw 5 per cent interest.

Now that the bonds are sold and after the board of education has cleared up a few matters of preliminary business an offer will be made soon to receive bids for the construction of the building. W. C. HIGH 25, ALTA VISTA 10 In a figuratively slow game here Friday night, the White City Highs defeated the Alta Vista Highs easily and the White City boys should be ashamed of themselves for letting A. V.

get nine of their total of ten points in the last half. However team proably felt sorry for the visitors and took enjoyment in seeing them get a few points. The Alta Vista men were all sports to the last minute and did not try to pull anything not becoming to a basketball game. The Alta Vista girls overwhelmingly defeated our girls 27-6 in another slow game which preceded the boys game. Jarman of Alma refereed both games.

After the games the White City teams entertained the visiting teams at the school house for an hour or two to make the time pass pleasantly for the Alta Vista people before their train left. None of the enmity which has been rampant between these schools in former years was hinted at even, which in the long. run really speaks better for both sides than a mere victory in a game. What we are afraid of when we send our teams to Alta Vista for return games is that they might beat us in their pet cracker-box court. As far as straight playing is concerned on a good court, the White City High School boy's team could trim Alta Vista's team any old day.

THE CRUSADER CLASS The Crusader Class of the M. E. Church met January 27 with Mrs. Garner for their monthly meetings Lunch was served consisting of rolls, scalloped potatoes, beet relish, dark and light cake, peaches and whipped cream. Those serving were Mrs.

Garner, Mrs. Torgeson, Mrs. Brown, Mrs. Blythe and Miss Rockliffe. Eighteen members of the class and two visitors were present.

A very pleasant time was enjoyed by all. The class will meet Fedruary 10 with Mrs. E. C. Jenkins.

Kitchen in the Bacon Land office building and took charge of his share in the concern the latter part of last week. The firm will be known as the Kleen Tailor Shop, Kitchen and Dean, proprietors. QUEEN ESTHER CIRCLE The first regular meeting of the Queen Esther Circle since its reorganization was held Thursday evening at the home of Miss Ora Pearson, Miss Pearson and Miss Jennie Gunter as hostess es.

Twenty members and several visitors were present. The lesson study, "The Negro Problem" and "Work Among Orientals" was very ably conducted by Regina Gish, the leader. A review of the chapter in the text book, "Our Greatest National Race Problems" was given in a very concise and interesting manner by Dora Hallmark. "The Bible. Story of Queen Esther," given by Bernadine Gruber was also fine as were each of the remaining numbers of the program: a reading, "Charity's Meal," by Thelma Wilde: piano solo, Elizabeth Weirich; "Talk on Negro Work and Giving Them: a Better Chance," Miss Marian Sheldon and a review of the purpose of the Queen Esther Circle by Rosa Hallmark.

During the business session which followed the program, the parts were assigned for the pageant which the girls is will give in April.

adv. SMALL POX IN LATIMER NEIGHBORHOOD Sixteen cases of sickness are quarantined in and around Latimer some of which are real smilpox cases. The other cases quarantined show good symptoms of small pox. Clifford Gish is supposed to have been the first case as heprobably contracted it from a man he wrestled with last week. All the other people who have taken the disease were at the wrestling match in which Gish took part.

Several of the small pox victims have been quite sick but none of them have been in a dangerous condition at any time. The county health officer, Harvey. of Council Grove has the situation under observation. The Latimer school and several of the neighboring district schools have been closed to aid in avoiding the spread of the disease which at this time appears to be under control. PEOPLES MUTUAL TELEPHONE COMPANY OUT OF DEBT Inforation was received that the Peoples Mutual Telephone Company had paid off the mortgage on the Telephone Building and that all other bills are paid to date and the company is out of debt.

Dues may be reduced some time in the future but for purposes of having a fund on hand for keeping the telephone system ingood order and to be able to withstand any emergencies that might occur, it is being agitated to keep the dues at their present figure.
