The Southern Democrat, April 22, 1926

Hon. Hugo Black, candidate for U.S. Senator, addressed the citizens of Blount County at the court house last week. Among the subjects discussed were the tariff and taxes, roads, rivers, and harbors, immigration, Muscle Shoals and the Alabama Power Co. He declared himself in line with the old established policy of the Democratic party in reference to the tariff and said he favored a reduction of tariffs and taxes whenever it can be done. In appealing to the audience for their support, he insisted that he was one of the common people and he was seeking the support of the common people. His speech was well received.

Blount High meets Cullman Saturday

At 3:30 p.m., come out and see a good game. Blount lost to Cullman Monday at Cullman; errors being responsible for the loss. McCay pitched good ball for the locals, allowing only seven hits, but was given very poor support by his teammates. Whited, Blount’s south paw will be on the mound Saturday and is expected to hold the Cullman team to a close score.
