In the near future, the Ford
Dallas plant will undergo a sea-
sonal shutdown. During the per-
iod when the men will not be at
work, a drive by union organizers
is expected. "We are going to be
harassed as never before," said
Dill, as he opened the meeting.
Dill labeled the gathering as a
show of strength against unioniza-
tion and as a spontaneous demon-
stration of loyalty to Henry Ford.
Dill had both sides of his auto-
moble covered with large banners
which read "AH :we wan is to be
left alone."

Dill declared "if Jim Ferguson
runs for governor, we're going
into politics. Personally, I'd rath
er have Ferguson, even if he's just
a wood and water-carry papa,
than twenty-five Jimmy Allreds."
Allred's recent move to bring
rangers into Dallas to stop strike
activities, brought scathing re-
marks from speakers. Dill said it
was a "political" move.
Other speakers pointed out all
Ford employes wanted was to be
left alone. "We're not threaten-
ing anyone. What we want is
peace and tranquility."
One speaker said "I'm going to
say a few words about Jimmy All-
red, but I'll wash my mouth out
when I get home."

One teacher was promoted and
two elected to the public school
system here at a special meeting
of the school board Monday, Su-
perintendent B. McDaniel, said.
All elections are Eubject to ac-
ceptance by the elected teachers.
Miss Dovie Mae Arnold, 911
S. Austin avenue, local teacher
for the past seven years and a
graduate of Austin college, Sher-,
man, was promoted from Central
to high school, where she will
teach eighth grade English and
ninth grade history.
Miss Dorothy Steele, Denison
girl, whose parents live at 524
Gandy, and a teacher at Broken
Bow, Oklahoma, elementary school
for the past two years, was elect-
ed subject to assignment. Miss
Steele is a graduate of Southeast-
ern college at Durant.
Miss Margaret Lewis of Paris,
Southeastern graduate, was named
for a position in the elementary
system to fill the vacancy of Miss
Nona Lee Taylor, who resigned
during the summer. Miss Lewis
is a sister of Miss Elizabeth Lew-
is, formerly a teacher here.
Mr. McDaniel said the three
were named to take care of the
overflow classes in every school of
the city, but said he did not know
whether any one of the three
would accept or reject their ap-
and while under the influence of
liquor, took it into his head to
defy the town. He was armed with
a repeating rifle, which he
brought to bear on several per
sons, whom he thought had an
idea of arresting him, among them
his bother-in-law, a Mr. Montgom-
ery. There was lively dodging
on all sides as the muzzle of that
Winchester swnug around to all
points of the compass. He fin-
ally mounted his horse and rode
out of town. O'Neil and Hall,
policemen, followed him, but be-
ing on foot, could not overtake
him before he got outside the city
limits. George Loving went out
to camp soon after and got his
rifle and says Chilton will come in
this morning and answer anjjf"1
charge that may be brought
against him.
Esquire Kirk received an invi-
tation to call around at the Lin-
dall hotel to unite a young couple
in the bonds of matrimony. He,
of course, responded promptly
and soon Joseph H. Bell and Miss
Alice Esther Patten were made
man and wife. Mr. Be'jl came up
from Dallas on the noon train,
and Miss Patten arrived on the
mail train from Iowa in the even-
ing to meet him Mr. and Mrs.
Bell returned to Dallas to reside.
