► DUNN INVITES ITS FRIENDS
Duna U ready to make Its debut ipto the society of expos!
tion towns, its fair—staged fur the benefit of Hamott, Samp
f?11’ J.ohn*u>n “nd Cumberland Counties—ie prepared to opei
1 .!!!!,°ext Tue,d,,y morning. From every page of the Dis
patch this morning this fact is heralded by buslnom men, tin
fair management and the Dispatch. And with the heraldini
go®* «h invitation to Lhow> thousands of farmera, business men
art suns and others who have helped to make Dunn the dip
> town it is—ail invitation to attend the fair; a welcome
I r..ij Du“n “ Proud of wh6t il has just accomplished. It haa i
eenag that few towns could have performed the job so quickh
and so well. It believes too that thin pride and this feeling art
justified- It is no small job to establish most any sort of-a little
air. And this fair is r.ot the ordinary kind. It isn’t a little fail
all. It ranks right up with the big fellows, almost challen*
I . ® the State event IlMdf. And the whole thing haa been created
since early last summer when the germ of an idea was born in
the brain of Robert L. Godwin.
It was this germ of an idea that put the thing in motion.
Mr. Godwin thought well of it. He got in touch with Henry
Burlington, Owen Odum and suveral other good men of th«
county. They thought well or It too. Then Ellis Goldstein J
Uoyd Wade V. I. Stephen*. Granville M. Tilghman. John
Draughon. McD. Holliday and many other* were rocruited to
* ~w *•*» **■■■•*> - ■ •
A company was organized. Mr. Turlington was mads
president. He went to work. Ellis Goldstein was made busi
new manager lie went to work. Owen Odum waa made secre
tary. He went to work. A forty acre field waa bought and con
tracts placed for permanent buildings, drives and race track.
Then Ed. B. Warren appeared on the scene. Since the flrat
posthole was digged. Ed. has supervised ubout everything that
has happened at the fairgrounds and he has seen to it that
work was dispatched and done well. The race track la Ed’s
masterpiece. He directed the placing of every clod of earth
in it and surprised everybody by getting the job completed a
wof k ahead of time
So. the field that last spring was planted to cotton and com
is now a finished and polished exposition ground—complete in
,irUkl1 butbu,,d£d while the crops grew and finished
while they were being harve«'rri. Where cotton pickers were
ui work Monday morning is now a landing field for aviators
w ho are to entertain visitor* to the fair.
This enter|*ri»e has grown so swiftly that even the people
of Dunn cannot realize its magnitude. But they know the big
plant Is there and that it is rondv to receive the guests of Dunn
A glad welcome awaits, all who attend. In its pride Dunn
beams. ’’Welcome’’ is embroidered on every window curtain
|i'i the town.
