Excerpts from stories published in the Nov. 19, 1926 edition of the Princeton Clarion-News, forerunner of The Princeton Clarion:

SECURE $1,200 FOR HOSPITALThe committee which did the work and the business men who responded with gifts displayed a fine spirit of cooperation with the Methodist hospital when the campaign was launched.

A total of $1,200 has been pledged to the hospital to care for the deficit of this year. This does not cover the total amount that is needed. it is hoped that the tag day Saturday, conducted by the Boy and Girl Scouts, will net the hospital the other $800.

The exhibition will be given at the Legion hall on the north side of the square and will open at 8:30 o’clock.

Thomas is earning a reputation as a little fighter with a big kick in his mitt for his has won his last two fights with knockout blows.

REDS AND BOSSE IN ANNUAL GAMEWith a goodly share of southwestern Indiana honors at stake, Princeton and Bosse high schools classed at St. Joseph Field at 2:30 o’clock this afternoon.

Each team had lost but one game this season and the winner was assured such honors as will be handed out in the Pocket.

Both teams were keyed for a hard battle and with much at stake, the battle was expected to develop into a good exhibition of football.

OLYMPIAN MAIDS DEFEAT MT. VERNONMt. Olympus girls, playing a far better game than they turned in last week at Huntingburg, defeated the strong Mt. Vernon team in a game played at Mt. Vernon Friday night as a part of the dedication program for Mt. Vernon’s coliseum.

The Olympian maids had gained a 12 to 3 lead at the half. It is the first time Mt. Vernon has been defeated on its home floor in two years.

LINCOLN SCHOOL NOTESOn Thursday evening the Hi-Y Boys entertained their fathers with a banquet in the school auditorium. The table extending nearly the length of the room was beautifully decorated in keeping with the Thanksgiving season and the menu was pleasing to all present.

The Lincoln orchestra furnished music for the occasion and several members of the public speaking class delivered orations.

The president, Shannon Bell, made interesting and timely remarks and Earl Nolcox proved himself an efficient master of ceremonies.

Robert Brown deserves much credit as chairman of the refreshment committee and those who assisted him, George Thomas, Edgar Lucas and Vernal Steward, are to be highly commended for their very excellent services.

BRIDGES ON SLAB TO BE READY SOONVINCENNES — The new overhead bridge on the Dixie Bee Line north crossing the C. & E.I. railroad south of Oaktown will be thrown open to traffic during the early part of next month. Weather conditions affecting graveling of the approaches will determine the period of the opening.

The new bridge south of Vincennes on the Dixie Bee Line will be officially thrown open to traffic next Saturday. The new bridge parallels the old structure that gave way a week ago when a heavy gasoline power shovel was being moved over it. The old bridge was not replaced due to the near date

for the opening of the

new bridge.
