Elkin police and town officials have a nice little problem
on their hands in form of cheap wine. No less than 13
drunks were locked up in jail over the past week-end, the
majority reported to be drunk on wine and beer . . . Police
say, with wine selling at 10 cents a glass due to keen com
petition, a dime glass of wine and a bottle of beer provides a
cheap, but powerful, state of intoxication. And oh, but are
they sick when the glorious feel-'
ing departs . . . It's this situation
that has them all puzzled. What
to do about it?
Walter Winchell pulled a good
one over the radio a couple of

hundreds of Italian tanks, which
they have been using to good ad
vantage against their foes, that

Greeks bearing gifts" should be

worries us is how we are going to

•We went to Charlotte last Feb
ruary to testify in e civil suit
growing out of an automobile
wreck near here that we photo
graphed. We went at great in
convenience to ourself and to The
Tribune, because it camfe on our
busiest day . . . And as yet we've
never rceeived our witness fee
and mileage, amounting to over
$9.00, and $9.00 is not to be sneez
ed at in days like these—or in
any other kind of days . . . Seems
to us, from what we have seen of
courts and lawyers and things,
the only important thing in a
civil suit is whether the lawyers
get paid. With us it's the prin
ciple of the thing—and the nine

brightness that we remember in

Just in case you happen to no
tice it, the McDaniel Department
Store advertisement in this issue
doesn't have a single line of reg
ular type in it. The entire ad,
with the exception of the Santa
Claus in the star, was carved by
hand from linoleum bought from
Hayes & Speas. This linoleum,
after being carved, was used as
the printing plate, the advertise
ment being printed directly from
it. The Tribune is the only news
paper in North Carolina, weekly
or daily, which offers this type of
black and white service to its
During the past five years such
stores as McDaniel's, Sydnor-
Spainhour, and the Eagle Furni
ture Company have used enough
linoleum cuts in their advertising
to run into many square feet. The
linoleum used is the same as is
used in the floor of the local hos
pital. Every time we go to the
hospital we always have an urge
to sit down and start carving ads
on the floor.
All lettering in linoleum cuts
have to be carved backward.
How about coming over and
carving up your kitchen rug
sometime? Then you come over
and carve up ours.
