Top billing this week goes to
the Harvest Day Sale and Barbe
cue supper held Saturday, Nov.
11th. It is difficult in reporting
something that was so tremen
dously successful to say that this
reason or that was the cause of
the success. The day was perfect.
The-crowd was there to help and
to have some full and they got it,
Percy Joyner not only excelled
himself with some of his best to- !
bacco warehouse opera, he also;
was a genial master of ceremo
nies. High bidder was Dolphus
Gupton who paid $25.00 a box for;
shells. It was a lot to pay an 1
his total purchases ran close to a
hundred dollors BUT his willing- j
pess to help the Church is the
thing that everybody appreciated.
All of the folks who brought in
contributions showed the same
willingness. It is impossible for
a Community with such spirit to
fail to achieve their goal. Tlu!
receipts from all sources is crowd
ing $900 and it looks like the'
folks will crack a thousand before
it is all over.
I think it is fitting here to say
a word1 of commendation to the
Centerville folks. It was erron
eously reported in this column'
that they took in some over $700
at their Harvest Sale. Actually
the amount was some over $1,260.
That is an achievement of no
small preportions but the best
part is that from this and from
sales held in previous years they
faave accumulated some over
$\000.00 towards their new
Church building and for that ac
complishment my friends of
neighboring Centreville I willing
ly take off my hat and congratu
late you and I am sure that every
one In WOOD will do the same.
At the JSVOOD Harvest Sale the
Auction brought in ? considerable
sum. The supper brought in an
other considerable sum, the tobac
co sale did the same, but money
was raised in other ways too. A
crowd from the church took time
eff from their work last Wednes
day week and went down to T. B.
Reynolds farm and helped Bert
Denton pick his cotton crop. By
night they bad picned a bale and
the money earned was turned in
tor the church. Bert and his
folks turned in what they would
have earned had they been pick
ing for someone else which was
pretty generous. Yours truly
claims to be the best one-handed
cotton picker in the state. Boy,
when I get to be a two-handed
picker I'm going to be a Jay bird

Well folks we were scooped this
week and we have to report a
week late that Lillian Sturges and
Cpl. Tommy W. Murray of Mobile
Alabama pulled a sneaker and goti
married before we knew it. It is
a coincidence that Lillian's sister
Dorothy, who Is in the European
theatre doing a good Job also
married a boy from Mobile. They

hundred next Sunday folks. If ydu

Rev. W. W. Turner preached]
another fine sermon Sunday P. M.
His topic was "The Foundation
Stones of Faith". The theme of!
the sermon was that the founding
of our faith in Christianity and
belief in Jesus Christ comes first
from our parents, when we are
older by our own reason and un
derstanding, by the preachments|
of the testaments tn the bible anil
by the demonstrations of Jesus
while he was here on earth and
that from our training our belief
grows until we cant get any satis
faction from any other source
than the day by day practice of
Christianity in our lives.
