We are told, in one day last week, three automobile springs were broken, several heads cracked, ribs broken, and other injuries sustained by people trying to ride over the streets of the city.  We head one man remark - "I hope it was one of those fellows who stopped the permanent street improvements."

One of the big problems of the day is - how are we going to keep the boys on the farm.  Since the soldier has returned from the army and has traveled much and seen lots, he is not content to stay on the farm.  Then the high wages of the city is another attraction.  This little squib is prompted by the fact that the writer saw, one day this week, over twenty boys from Pulaski board the train between Somerset and Eubank for different cities in Ohio and Michigan.  We made an investigation, to be sure where they were traveling, and found all were headed for factories either in Cincinnati, Dayton, Akron or Detroit.  Now this is a serious problem.  There is a big shortage of farm labor in Pulaski County.  There is no farmer with adequate help.  We know it is an absolute fact that boys are leaving home and that the women and girls are doing the farm work.  Many farms in Pulaski County were not touched with a plow this year because of the shortage of help.  What is the solution?

Coolidge Knows It.  Gov. Coolidge knows that he was nominated for vice president on the Republican ticket for Governor Edwin P. Morrow went up there and told him about it officially.  There was a large crowd present to hear it and of course the "Gov." made a great speech.

Republicans Name Campaign Committee And Will Soon Start To Work In County.  The sub-committee appointed by the Republican County Committee to select a campaign chairman and an advisory committee to assist him in the work of the campaign this fall ahs made the following appointments:  Campaign Chairman, R.C. Tartar, Secretary, Mrs. William Curtis, Members of the committee: Judge B.J. Bethurum, Judge W.B. Morrow, Walter N. Flippin, J.N. Mayfield, C.P. Dause, Dr. T. L. Gamblin, Arthur Jenkins, E.T. Wesley, H.C. Kennedy and W.A. Moore. 

Judge Tartar said that he would open headquarters in a few days and begin his work of organization.  The clerical work will be in charge of Mrs. Curtis.  In the appointment of the above committee an effort is seen to "jolly" certain politicians and members of the old committee, with the hope of getting them into the fold of he new organization.  It is not likely to work, however, for it is a known fact that Judge Tartar is persona non grata to the majority of the opposition.  Should the old committee be given a new hearing before the state committee and by some hook or crook win out then the above campaign committee will go to the junk pile and a new organization perfected.  The fun has started boys.  Keep your eyes and ears open and hold your nose.

Vacancy In The Office of Superintendent of City Schools to Be Filled By The Board.  The Board of Education is now looking for a good man to take the place of Dr. J.P.W. Brouse, who has been Superintendent of the City Schools for the past sixteen years.  Dr. Brouse has been in bad health for the past two years and it is said he will not continue in school work but will enter in other lines of business.  The Board will not go hastily into the selection of a man.  They will thoroughly investigate every application and will get the very best school man possible for the position.  It will take unusual ability to successfully manage the school system in Somerset.  It is a big job for a big school man.  The Board of Education has about thirty applications for the place and they are sifting them out now and making investigations.  The salary is going to be a big item.  Salaries in the teaching profession have advanced so much in the past year that it will be hard to secure a Superintendent at the salary paid here to fore.  The schools in Somerset have made rapid progress in the past few years and with the equipment and able corps of teachers the Board of Education is determined that Somerset shall continue to boast of the best schools in the south.  The Board of Education looks forward to a splendid year, one in which there will be much accomplished.  For the first time agriculture will be taught.  The United States government pays part of the expense for this course.  There is a good outlook for a winning football team and the boys are already talking about what they are going to do.
