The Republican town committee earnestly requests as many voters as possibly can to vote during the morning hours. An effort will be made to get out a large vote this year and will help the committee very much to have the majority come in early. It is also deemed advisable to urge the voters to cast a straight Republican ballot. There is some risk in losing a vote through a split ticket, and the safer way to support Coolidge is to vote straight.

Hampton loses to Manning 18 to 6:

In a game featured by rough playing the strong Manning High School team defeated the local boys Saturday 18 to 6. The Academy team showed great improvement over past games and stopped Manning's running and kicking game only to have the visitors complete six perfect forward passes, three for touchdowns.

Hampton scored its first touchdown of the season, the honor going to John White. It started with Hobbs' 50 yard punt. Hampton held Manning and Fat George broke through to block the punt, Hampton recovering on the one yard line. On the first play White ploughs through centre for the score.

The game was full of excitement and many long runs were pulled off by each team. Both Ring and John White made some spectacular runs around end and Hobbs' kicking featured.

The great playing of John White deserves mention. He was in every play and tackled hard. He refused to be put out of the way on the defense and made gain after gain on the offense. He is improving in each game and should be a wonder after a little more experience.

Ring, although in the game only a short time, played well. His tackles were hard and sure and he completed a couple of fine end runs.

Credit should be given to every man as they played a hard game to the final whistle.

Henry Hobbs is building a house on High street, opposite Warren Hobbs.
