MARSHALL, MADISON COUNTY, N. C. FRIDAY, MAY, 25th, 1923. No 20 On the evening of May the 15, an enjoyable piano recital was .' given by the pupils of Miss Evel yn Baley Miss. Baley finished her piano course, last year, at Merideth, with honors, and this . lv ' year has had a large class in ' Marshall High School. The recital was a perfect sue ' cess in every respect, and ' the pupils great progress in their stady of music. Each number' was rendered from memory ex cept the duets and trios. Miss Baley deserves ' much praise on her yerswork, despite the en clemency of the weather quite a number of people were out. Those Camping ' Grounds Now that the other nlacen have opened for the summer the tourist camp grounds Marshall is still waiting for some one to do it for her so that she can ask these persons to stay awhile with us. It is necessary that some one take . the lead and push the unatter. Since last Fall the News-Record has been talking of - this but has accdm- pnsnea notning so far. It would take but little to do it and the cost would not be much in either time or money. .V MEMORIAL SERVICE Baptist Churcli Sunday Morning V:' Throughout the length and breactli of the NATTON tl.Ja Sunday will be observed as a MEMORIAL ONE IN HONOR OF THE HEROIO DEAD WHO HAVE FALLEN IN ALL THE VARI OUS WARS IN WHICH THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA HAVE BEEN ENGAGED.

The Clerk of- Court has r ceiveda letter from a member of the Supreme Court of Florida asking about accommodations' and prices for rooms and what the roads are. He says that Asheville and even Hendersonr ville do not appeal to him but that he thought Marshall might be an ideal spot to spenda, time in. For days the Clerk held the letter because Marshall had ittle to offer for those who might- Want to come in here. Here is a chance to get a man high in the social life in Florida and who might purchsse and also get .his friends to come with him but what is there to offer, such a man. We have boarding houses, some it is true.. We have hotels but not the tourist hotels. We h a v e - no houses for j rent , and few for sale. ..There is nothing to write ;o the man but 'to say that we cannot accommodate him ar.d his friends.- It is a question that has been aaitated for years.' namely that Marshall should do -some tiling to attraet the people from , the , outside durinff the simmer months. .However it has been a voice in the wilder ness ass nothing has been done to solve the lack, and we are not doing anything ' n o w. ?
