fol-Lov;9d scrie negro ":p.ai.T*n7'''' that was
"carrying a suitcase to thevTong destination.
As you Icnov;, when Eddie was stationed at Columbia,
S.C., h-e didn’t know where the bus station was.
VJhen he got a y;eek-end off and started home he just
happened to see a negro woinan, carrying a suitcase,
and followed right behind her and sure enough she
took him right to the bus station. Perhaps that isn't
such a bad idea for sone of you when you don’t Imovj the tovmj (
Gee ivhilikers, v;e have lived this long and just now learned the difference be
tween Vision and Si.^t. Foy Southards and "Bardy" Hunt vjere double-dating the other
night ancj "Bardy’s" girl was a Vision and Foy's was a Sight. (Anne said that wasn’t
her that.was dating Foy that night)^
There is no need to tell you ho;v scarce things are these days but we think it is
the lirnit when two people buy one pair of glasses and take it day about wearing them.
T-.jo colored people actually did that here in Lawndale, and oven Royle Champion bor
rowed his daddy’s glasses the other night to v;ear to the shov/, Royle is here on a
furlough now and he reallj^ looks "fit to ld.ll" in that Navy uniform.
Betty Jo Eaker has finished her business course at King’s Business College and
accepted work in Sholbyc We Imo’.v that Jack Wilson is thrilled to hear this news
cjid to know that she v/ill be close home now«, .
Dwight Hord came home for a few days about two weeks ago rjid his sister gave
him a party. It seems that all of you shall be well entertained v;hen you do come back
to see us because we are glad to see you any time. , /
Piedmont still holds top honors in'v;inning basketball gririGS, The other night they
played Belwood and won both gariios. The girls played such a good game and beat Belv/ood
so bad that it wasn’t even iiiteresting. The boys also won but it was such a tight game
that we didn’t Imo?; that we had a scat because we were on our feet most of the time
yelling, screaming, and cussing. The game was plenty fast and furious. Ruth Anthony
is still a loyal fan for Piedmont .?jid if you doubt that one bit, you should have been
there and heard some of the things that she saidc
Most of you remember Llildrod Eaker on the team, don’t you? Well, it seems that
Vivian, her sister, is follov/ing right in her footsteps, when it comes down to play
ing real ball. You should have seen her las‘t Tuesday night when they played Shelby
All-Stars. That gal was really putting, them in. Jack Eskridge and Harvey Bowens were
really ".on" the other night up at Belv/ood cause they dropped the last tv;o in that
'brought us victory. We are planning on going "vjay back in the hills" Friday night and
play Casar and here'^s hoping those girls.vdll really win,'that game because their
former coach, iir„ Dodd, is Casar’s Coach this year, ’ ' ‘
So long until the next game comes .off and then we’ll be seeing you.. Our one
prayer is that everything is soon going to be all right and you vjill be here to
join in the fun with us.
