September 1, 1920: Buy But Little Sugar, Advice
The United States Department of Labor gives this advice to buyers of sugar:
“Don’t lay in sugar supplies now.
“Buy only to meet immediate needs.
“The less sugar you buy today the lower the price will drop tomorrow.
“If you begin buying large quantities of sugar now the price-fixers will boost the cost on you.
“The new beet sugar crop is nearly ready for the harvest. It’s a big crop. Cane sugar is coming in soon. The Cuban crop will be large. That’ll begin coming in by December.
“The sugar speculators must let go. Banks won’t extend their credit. They must disgorge before the new crop reaches market.

After falling behind visiting Bowling Green Greenwood 1-0, the Lady Waves came back to score two unanswered goals to put Meade County’s first ever regular season win in the record book.
“They are learning. Did you notice the passing and the spacing and patience? They didn’t have it the other day.” (a season opening 5-0 loss to Henderson County). “When they got behind, they were able to dig down and continue,” said Meade County Coach Frank Stith.
Meade County freshman Leslie Knott’s second period goal with six minutes remaining broke a one-all deadlock and gave the Lady Wave their first ever inaugural season victory.
