Sheppard, State Comptroller of Public Accounts, has placed in this territory Mr. W. A. McCants for the purpose of checking on the quality of all gasoline being sold in this terri- tory: This is a concerted move- ment being carried out all over the State under Mr. Sheppard's direction, in an effort to see that the motoring public is sold gaso- line that has not been adulterated with kerosene or other foreign substances, and to see that the tax is placed on all gasoline sold. The Comptroller's efforts along these lines resulted in over $4, 000,000 more asoline tax being collected in 1935 than in 1934. He estimates that by strict en- forcement bf the law the gaso- line tax for 1936 will be approxi- mately $40,000,000, which will be a big help to the pubhc schools and other departments of State and county to which this tax is allocated. It is Mr. Shepherd's intention to keep a representative in this vicinity to keep a close check on the gasoline situation. The re- presentative of this vicinity will work under the supervision of Mr. Sheppard's Distrmt Office in Dallas. Government Installs Sewing Room Here The installation of a Govern. ment sewing room was completed in the M. T. Dodd building on East Mitcham Street here last Thursday, with Miss Willie McGregor of this city in charge. On the first day the project was opened, only four women were employed. That number up to the present time, has increased to fourteen. The project here, it is understood, will be allowed 20 to 30 employees, and it is expect- ed that the maximum allowance will be reached within the next few weeks. Employees who will be eligible for work in the sewing room must have been registered on the re- lief rolls prior to November 1, 1935. Women whose husbands were on the rolls before that time and who are unable to work, will also be eligible for employment, it was stated. The work that is being done in the sewing room is all from ma- terials which are sent here by the Government. The completed garments will be sent to head. quarters at Athens from which point they will be distributed a- mong needy persons of the coun- Cy. Machines Needed Miss McGregor said that addi- tional sewing machines were bad. iy needed for the project here at the present time, and until the shipment of Government ma- chines arrives. She is desirous of obtaining a few local machines wich which to carry on the work until that time. Any person in possession of a machine that is not in use, and who will kindly lend it for this work, she said, will be doing a great service. She would be glad to make any needed repairs on any and all machines borrowed for this pur- pose. l Mr. and Mrs. D. H.

According to the wife, Mr. Terry, who apparently was un- able to go to sleep after retiring, arose about eleven o'clock and went into the living room. Mrs. Terry declared that no one heard the shot that took her husband's life. An examination of the body, as it was found in the rocking chair, gave evidence that Mr. Terry had seated himself, placed the muzzle of the 22-calibre rifle against his heart, and pulled the trigger, The bullet, it was said, passed through the body and buried itself in the wall. Finan- cial difficulties was the only rea- son his wife could advance as to the cause of the tragedy. The deceased is survived by his wife and two sons by a form- er marriage. At the time of go- ing to press no funeral arrange- ments had been made. Eighty Attend Sunday School Class Banquet The Young Men's Bible Class of the Baptist Church were hosts Wednesday evening at a banquet in which the class members, pro- spective class members, and world war veterans were enter- tained. Eighty men were pre- sent for the occasion. Roger Harbour, class member and a world war veteran, who was largely responsible for the even- ing's entertainment acted as toastmaster for the occasion. A total of twenty-six ex.soldiers, seven of whom are members of the Bible class, were counted on the guest list. Eight out of town visitors, including District Attorney Tom Pickett of Pales- tine; Cqunty Attorney Miles B. Smith, C. C. Adrian, Homer Wil- liams, Paul Payne, Walter Grid. er, Hoyt Kinabrew, and County Clerk Horace Johnson, all of Ath- ens, also attended the occasion as invited guests.

Young, re-election ed when it was thought that the time had expired when the city would be able to obtain the Gov- ernment grant and loan for the building of an adequate water works and sewage disposal l lant, It has been learned that the Malakoffproject has been car- ried forward by the Government agency and will be available at such time as the town becomes incorporated. A meeting relative to this proposition was held at the Men's Bible Class room at the Baptist Church last Friday afternoon with quite a number of repre- sentative business men in atten- dance. Mr. F. J. VonZuben, en- gineer from Fort Worth, was present at the meeting. He stat- ed that the Government agencies had investigated the Malakoff application and had found it to be favorable, and that he saw no reason for failure in securing the allotment. It is of absolute necessity, however, he said, that the town be incor- porated and the Government would not even consider loans in unincorporated towns. Once Malakoff becomes incor- porated, the city will be in a posi- tion to accept the grant and loan offer of the Federal Government for the building of a water sys- tem and sewerage plant so badly needed here. Of the total cost for the completion of these pro- jects, the Government offers a grant of 45 per cent and a cash loan, at the rate of 4 per cent in- trest over a long period of time for the remaining 55 per cent. As security for the loan, the Gov- ernment will accept revenue bonds, which may be retired on- ly from the revenues of the plants. The date of the election, at which time the proposition will be left up to the people living within the corporate limits, will be announced at an early date. W. F.
