Deputy State Motor Vehicle Inspector J. J. McMahon has issued a second official warning to the effect that all headlight law violators from this date forth can expect to find themselves in court.

The law requires that the lights be dimmed when approaching another car no matter on what road or street the cars may be, in the city limits or outside. It is advisable, says McMahon, that the lights be left on dim while driving at night on the more congested streets of the city. All violators of the law will be placed under arrest and fined.

Drivers are warned also to observe the speed limit when passing school houses, which under the state law is specified as 12 miles per hour, and under the city ordinance 19 miles per hour. Fourteen violators of the state law regarding school houses were arrested and fined last week in Ashland.


Next Wednesday, April 26, will be the 103rd anniversary of the founding of the Order of Odd Fellows in America. To commemorate this occasion the local lodge will have a special meeting on that evening. A program of excellent features has been arranged, one that will particularly appeal to and interest all members of the order. The Rebekahs and Canton will participate in the services.

A march will take place on Main street beginning at 7:30, headed by the Patriarch Militant in uniform. In the line will be the members of the various branches of the order, including all sojourning and visiting members. The program at the hall will start at the conclusion of the march. Senator C. M. Thomas will deliver an address on Off Fellowship and Mrs. John A. Perl will review the Rebekah branch. Other features of the program will be quartet and orchestra music, readings, specialties, solos, etc.

In connection with this occasion a homecoming and reunion will also be held, and special invitations have been sent out to all members and visitors to be present or to write.

The entire affair will undoubtedly be a memorable occasion.
