GLAHE SENTINEL Established 1878 STINCHCOMBE FAMILY WRITE HOME FOLKS Farwell Mail Carrier and Family Enjoying Leave of Absence and Are Spending Winter in West. CLARE, MICHIGAN.'FRIDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 25, 1925 winter term at c.h;n. begin; • january 4th Buildings and Equipment Being Rushed to Care for Large Enrollment Expected. The interesting letter relating the experiences of the Chas. Stinchcombe family on their sojourn to the Golden State was sent to us for publication by Mr. and Mrs. H. G. Baker, of Far- well. We are confident that their many acquaintances will be pleased to know all are enjoying the trip immensely. 345 Alta Ave., Whittier, Cal., Dec. 10, 1925 Dear Folks: Am thinking of you all this morning and must write. We arrived here two weeks ago last Friday evening. Our trip was very interesting, altlio to begin with we all felt homesick after waving good bye to the dear friends at the depot ancl leaving tne little spot on the earth's surrace into which I have put more than forty years of my life except for short journeys away. As we left the train at Saginaw we espied the smiling face of Mabel Fisher and a visit with her matte our stay ra Saginaw very pleasant. Then at Flint the tall figure of my dear hroth- er was first to great us ana tlian Frank and Bertha appeared, so our wait there seemed very short. At Flint we found much more snow than at home ancl it continued to grow deeper as we reached the Indiana line. A lady from central Indiana said tliey had eight inches on a level As we neared Chicago the display of lights was beautiful and all the world seemed to be one vast city us we rode for an hour or more. The Dearborn station at Chicago was thronged with people all in a hurry, noisy trains, autos, trucks, cabs rusn- ing here and there in the darkness and it seemed to me it would be impossible for us to get on the right train, notwithstanding that "green ticket-a-yard-long," but before long Mr. Stinchcombe found a stand whore he must show that ticket ancl behold! they kept all the tickets and gave him just a "scrap of paper" ancl hurried us out thru a loug dimly lighted corridor to a certain coacn in a long train of ten coaches. As we were hurried and pushed inside we discovered ..the beds were all made up for night and found our section. This was all new and very different from what l nad expected: for there was so little room ancl the porter was busy waiting on a lot. of other folks as green as u*. Edith groaned and said she could ncn sleep without her window up. Charlie and Homer climbed in the booth above in a very undignflea maniu-;-. (Undignified does not express it.) but after awhile we got stretched out and -were thankful for the rest. Our train bumped along out of Chicago in a way that made us feel lire was very uncertain, but finally settled down to a steady pull and all was timet. The first rays of daylight found us in Missouri. There was no snow in sight but mud every where and if there is anything interesting in Missouri I will have "to be shown." Kansas City with its high buildings and hustle made, us think of Flint. We noticed Montgomery Ward's store building near tne depot and were surprised to find tne Missouri river a muddy ugly looking stream Having our lunch box we ate when the train was moving and always got out and walked when the train stopped. Well, from Kansas City they switched us around so that we went by way of Topeka, a much less direct route than our ticket called for, but Topeka is an . interesting city. We climbed up so that we could see thti capital building and some beautiful homes. The sun shone warm, streets were dry ancl clean. People moved leisurly about, looked happy and I decided I would like to live in Topeka. Here we saw our first cowboy fixed up with all the trimmings and looked 'in every way like the ones we react about. Here we realized for the first time that we had really left winter behind, for it looked about like September 1st at home. We traveled all day in Kansas, thru wonderful farming country. Cattle, hogs, great corn and wheat fields many grist mills and thru oil fields. One well was close to the track and we saw the on on water beside the coacn. We went to bed in Kansas and the first rays of morning light showed us some reai Texas steers and the conductor tola us we had passed thru Okianoma in the night-and were now in the panhandle of Texas and that we would enter New Mexico and have breakfast at Clovis at 8 o'clock. We were surprised to see a heavy white frost every where this morning in Texas and it looked like a cold morning at home the last,of September. Have seen no stumps, and trees only where set out since entering Kansas. Texas plains strtched as far as the eye could reach covered with a (Continued on Last Page) Rapid progress in the erecting and equipping of the frame building on the campus of Central Michigan Normal School indicates that the Mt. Pleasant Normal will be adequately prepared to take care of the large enrollment expected for the winter term, which starts Monday, January 4th. Central . Normal's Administration Building was destroyed by fire, December 7. Those three new buildings will provide classrooms and a- cafeteria that previously had been housed in the Administration Building. ■ Within the past two weeks Central Normal has been acquiring a new library of several thousands of volumes to replace the collection that was de-- stroyed by fire. The dormitory's recreation room has been transferred into a general library for the school, a handsome outside entrance has been completed for the library's new headquarters. The $25,000 emergency fund appropriated by the state for the purchase of books to replace those lost by the fire and also the regular school funds available for the library, are being expended rapidly for thousands of books. The librarian and assistants are spending the holiday vacation cataloging and classifying the new books to have them ready for use by the students at the beginning or the new term. Already much equipment has been received ancl made ready for the new buildings. The schedule for the winter term has been arranged so as not lo interfere with the usual work t-:u- riPd cm at the other four :arj,' buildings of the campus. During tlu» ms; ten days of the fall term, following the fire, classes were held in neariy every available space in the other buildings. Such crowding will not be necessary during the coming term, since two of the new buildings are exclusively for class rooms. In view of these ample preparations Central Normal is bound to nave a most succsssful winter term. Demonstration of loyalty on the part of present students and many letters from prospective new students are forecasts of a large enrollment. MACCABEES VOTE MALGAMATION Two-third Vote Secured in Four Day Fight at Detroit Convention. The convention of the Ladles of the Maccabees, held at Detroit recently to vote on a proposed merger with tne Men's organization of the Maccabees, resulted in a vicious fight between the proponents of the plan, under the leadership of Mrs. Frances E. Burns, Great Commander, ancl the opponents led by Mrs. Care, which lasted four days, during which time, four ballots were taken on the proposition, the. final vote approving the amalgamation by a necessary two- thirds majority Following the first ballot, Mrs. Burns and Mrs. Anna O. Holthe, past grand commander, feeling the. adverse vote reflected upon their administration, presented their resignations from office. In order that a split in the body might be avoided, the convention voted to reconsider the vote, and the resignations of Mrs. Burns and Mrs. Holthe were tabled. As a result of the balloting Friday night, December 11th, which approved the proposed merger, It is expected that the courts will be asked to enjoin the state insurance commissioner from recognizing the consolidation, according to a statement issued Saturday by William P. Turgle, spokesman for the insurgent group. LAUNDRY RECEIVED AT FRIZ'S STORE For the benefit of my patrons, I wish to announce that laundry for the Cadillac Steam Laundry will be received at the A. N. Friz store, first door north of the Princess theatre. Bundles brought before Tuesday evening will be returned the latter part of the) week. 9t2 Glenwood Holmes, Agent. ERROR CORRECTED. Last week through an error the price of beans was quoted at ?5.30, or one dollar too high for the Clare Elevator. This undoubtedly caused a few smiles as well as much inconvenience for which we take the blame and will try and be more careful next year. FOR POOR CHILDREN Last Minute Appeal Being Made to Secure Funds For Needy Ones. A last minute appeal to secure funds to provide a Happy Christmas for hundreds of homeless children under its care has been broadcasted by the Michigan Children's Aid Society through newspapers all over the state. These poor unfortunate children ;:re dependent for whatever they get upon this society and it is trying hard to collect money enough to provide lor every child. Up to this year the Society has confined its appeal to a mailing list of those who have previously contributed to the work but in addition to Santa Claus letters this year a general appeal is being made to secure additional money. Last year the Michigan Children's Aid Society touched the lives of 3, 103 children scattered all over Michigan. These children are all worthy of help and need it badly. Some are orphans, some have been deserted by parents (many as mere babies), and some are sick and crippled. The Society takes them and cares for them, provides a good home, and many are eventually legally adopted into splendid homes. All of this work costs money and the general public is asked to send in a Christmas contribution either through this newspaper or directly lo the Society at its headquarters. Letters addressed to Box 384, Lansing, will be gratefully acknowledged and the money so received put to splendid use.

LUAL EfctfUiAHiS If I trr.de OaU of town, and you trace of tow.!, KiiJ everybody elso trades out of town, what in this world is going to become of our town?" Mr. Merchant: This certainly is the truth, ancl it applies to all towns, large and small. You are a storekeeper, a distributor of merchandise in your town, and are depending on the patronage of the people of the town ancl perhaps the country adjacent. If everybody bought your line of goods away from your town, you would, of course, have to move out. The civic spirit of buying at home is the thing th'at builds up a town. If a town is worth living in, it is worth trading in. Now, then, Mr. Merchant, there are insurance agents in your town. They represent some of the best "Old-line" companies in existance, ana like yourself, they have a position to maintain. They put out quality goods, ana they give the best insurance service before and after the fire. Do you buy your fire and Tornado insurance "At Home' from these local agents who live among you, or do you huy it away from your town from mail-oraer mutuals? These agents will have to move away if no one in their home town buys what they have to sell. The residents ot your own are paying taxes to furnish you fire and police protection, school advantages ana other local benfits. You get no support from non-residents ror this protection. Think this over, Mr. Merchant, as the cases are parallel. Adv. Clare Realty Co., inc. ELLEN BROWN. Little Ellen Brown, twin daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Don Brown, of Bight Point lake, was born March 27th, 1920, and passed into its heavenly home on December lfth, 1925. Cause of death being scarlet fever. The little child was loved by all for her winning ways and will he sadly missed by her loving parents, two brothers ancl two sisters. The twin sister, Helen was seriously ill with the same disease but is now out of danger. Two other children are ill at this time. The family have the sympathy of their many friends and relatives in the time of their sorrow and illness. X That Michigan's comparatively low- average milk production Is due more to poor feeding practices on the part of the state's dairy farmers than to any other one cause is the belief of Prof. O. E. Reed, head of the dairy department at the Michigan State College. Illustrations of the effect of corrected feeding in increasing production in herds are given in a circular on "feeding hints" just sent out by Professor Reed. It was in this pamphlet that the college dairy authority gave "underfeeding ancl improper feeding" as the prime causes of low milk production in the state "Tho first principle to learn in feeding dairy cows is to keep them full ac all times." says Professor Reed. "It they are cows of the type that put the feed on their backs they should not be kept in the dairy, but should be disposed of for beef. • It is not always the amount of feed that is responsible for low production, but the kind una quality of the feed has the greatest influence upon production. The kino and quality of feed also has a great influence upon the economy or production. "Many barns this winter afe fillecr with shredded fodder and timothv hay, and the cows in these barns will have these feeds as their main diet, as far as roughage goes. These are the most expensive feeds. If one should attempt to balance v. ration for an average cow by furnisning the proper kir-ds of grain to go with timothy luiy and corn fodder, no- would find, if he kept tracs or the expenditures, that it would cost him practically twice as much to ouy the necessary grain to balance this ration as the cost of the grain that would he necessary to balance a ration with alfalfa hay as the roughage. "For full ancl complete instructions on feeding your cows, write to tne Dairy Husbandry Division, Michigan State College, East Lansing, Michigan. When writing for mrormatioii on feeding, be sure to state what kind of roughage and grain you have on. hand." ' , 0. E. S. MEETING. Regular meeting O. E. S. Friday evening, January 1st.

CHURCH The Congregational cnurch was filled to capacity last Sunday evening and it was necessary to place chairs in the aisles, to accomodate the congregation. The Sunday school had charge of the program. The children who took part had their songs and. recitations well learned and needed no prompting. At the close of the program, Santa Claus arrived and as a special treat brought his wife with him. They distributed sacks of candy to all or the children present. FORMER CLARE LADY DIES AT DETROIT News of the death of Mrs. Kittie Goodman, a former Clare resident, but for the past several years located at Detroit, reached Clare friends last week Thursday. The funeral was held from tho home Saturday and interment made in a cemetery of that city. We hope to be able to secure more details for next week. ag3!aa^aiirTrTr*^'^^'^ "r. >.-«,. .-^.
