Radio Favorites to Appear
The Paris Chamber of Com-
merce announces that they have
been fortunate in arranging for
the famous United States Army
Band, “Pershing’s Own,” to give
two concerts in Paris on the
afternoon and night of Monday,
Since its formation the Army
Band has participated in vir-
tually every event of national
importance which has occurred
at the seat of government.
These have included recep-
tions for homecoming heroes,
foreign officials, delegations and
royalty. The Army, Band has
led the inaugural processions
and funeral parades of Presi-
During the past summer it
played a series of concerts in
Madrid, Seville, and Barcelona,
Spain, meeting with wonderful
The Army Band’s appearance
here is expected to attract hun-
dreds who have heard of the
United States Army Band and
are now being afforded an op-
portunity to see and hear it.
Admirers of the Band have
been warned by the local com-
mittee, however, that it will be
necessary to attend the concerts
at Paris, as the programs posi-
tively will not be broadcast, and
the Band will not appear in any
other city in Northeast Texas
except Fort Worth and Marshall.
The prices have been reduced to
the minimum so as to enable the
largest possible number to at-
tend. The prices are to be $1.00
for adults and 50c for children
at both performances. Reserved
seats will be 25c additional.

One Out of Five.
An Irishman in Dallas started
what promised to be a large
family. A baby came every year
for four years and then no more
came. A friend said one day:
“Pat, why is it your wife pre-
sents you with no more kiddies ?”
“I don’t want any more,” said
Pat, “they say that every fifth
baby in Dallas is a Jew.”

U friend, tried and true. There
can never be a satisfactory substi-

is genuine. It is the accepted anti-
dote for pain. Its relief may always
be relied on, whether used for the
occasional headache, to head-off a
cold, or for the more serious aches
and pains from neuralgia, neuritis,
rheumatism or other ailments. It’s
easy to identify Bayer Aspirin by
the Bayer Cross on every tablet, by
the name Bayer on the box and the
word genuine printed in red.

The TOWN DOCTOR
(The Doctor of Towns)
SOME TOWNS WILL NOT TAKE TELLING
Not long ago the executive
head of a town’s leading civic
organization, and the owner and
publisher of the largest news-
paper, had called to their atten-
tion the fact that among other
such things, grass was growing
in the sidewalks and curbs of
their business district. They
laughed and said, “Well, I guess
that won’t keep any business
out of towns.”
In the same month the offi-
cials of another city were re-
minded that they had no parks
or playgrounds for youngsters
or grown-ups, and they replied,
“Oh, that doesn’t mean any-
thing; we have plenty of other
things, and a place to play won‘t
keep any factories from coming
About the same time another
community was warned that
lack of interest in their com-
munity, shown by so many citi-
zens, might prove costly. They
said, “Ha! ha! What has that
to do with it as long as we have
a Chamger of Commerce with
plenty of money and pull?”
Now I am told that city No. 1
was crossed off a list of seven
towns selected as “possible” for
a factory with a fifty thousand
dollar monthly pay roll, due to
conditions reported as “run
down, seedy and unattractive
appearance of the community in
A large industrial concern, in
the final analysis of two accept-
ed towns, chose the other in
preference to town No. 2, be-
cause the report on my desk
shows said town had no recre-
ational facilities for employees
to whom five million dollars
would be paid annully.
In this afternoon’s mail there
is evidence that because a sur-
vey of town No. 3 showed the
population 72% negative civic-
ally, the town was refused a do-
nation of $250,000 which it had
asked of a large foundation.
As long as citizens of a com-
munity refuse to profit by the
experience of others—as long
as they won’t be told or appre-
ciate the telling, just that long
will those towns stay as they
are, failing to get new business
and allowing the business they
have to go elsewhere.
“He didn’t know the gun was
loaded,” “He didn’t stop, look
and listen” are famous epitaphs.
Now, as far as many towns are
concerned, you can add, “We
never thought about that.”
