Shown above is Miss Lucille Heffner whose singing was one
of the highlights of the Ecusta performance at Moore General
Hospital on May 11. She appeared in costume with the Mountain
Music Makers in a special program of mountain music and also
later in the program sang several of the current popular tunes
accompanied by Mary Glass, pianist and John Eversman, violinist.
Sparks And Flashes
Again we greet you from the
Power Department. Spring has ar
rived and now Spring fever is
raging among us, but don’t know
of a case that is of a fatal nature.
Obie Willingham has returned
from his vacation and from the
evidence he brought back, the
bass are really biting in Lake
Murray; but in spite of his in
quiring don’t think he found out
why the man was put off the street
car . . . Pete Norwood is still
wondering what caused his pipe
stem to grow up. Honest Abe
Hunter and Dorn really had a re
union last week-end; think a great
time was had by all . . . Smith
got in a couple of days fishing at
Lake Greenwood last week. He
brought back fish but it is thought
he bought them. Mathews has his
quartet going now and from all
advance reports we are going to
be hearing lots from them from
now on . . . “Booger” Lowry is
serenely going his merry way; his
only worry is how will he make
his “A” book do him.
Woody Allen’s wife has gone
home for a vacation, also to show
the folks theur little “Linda Sue”
. . . Dutch Bruner missed a day
last week; don’t know if his being
seen the day before going toward
Frozen Creek with a barrel has
anything to do with his being
absent or not . . . Mr. Galloway,
Robert McCall and Clarence
Brown took a trip fishing to Horse
Pasture. They say they ate fish
while gone ... It is almost the
time of year for Clarence Allison
to get lost, but he plans to take
Daniels, Orr and Evans next time
he goes into the cane brake to
find him and bring him back. We
are glad to welcome back J. R.
Nash who has been off for some
time . . . Leland George and fam
ily recently had a visit in Florida.
He thinks he covered the state
pretty well . . .
Coy Compton has fully recover
ed from an attack of pneumonia
and seems as good as new. Frank
McCrary has started his annual
spring fishing tales. We think it
is a good idea to bring some evi
dence of his powers as a fisher
man ... Ed Sentell, if you like
rabbits, can really supply your
demands. He now has a large num
ber on hand and is trying to buy
more land for rabbit grazing. He
hasn’t been able to get Jackson
Holden to go in business with him
so far. And that, Ladies and Gen
tlemen, in words of Walter Win-
chell winds up a “Power Journal”
until next month at the very same
time. So until then, just keep ’em
rolling.
June, the month of brides—looks
as if Lucile Roberts pulled a fast
one on a few people around here.
Best wishes to you, “Lucy.” We
know you want to stay with that
Navy man of yours but we miss
you here, too, so do hurry back
as that room-mate of yours looks
mighty lonesome without a shadow
following her. Lilly and Ernest
Burch report a nice trip to New
York, so do the Shepherd sisters
Wonder what all the attraction
could be? Then there’s Sonya Col
well who has left for the fair city.
Carl Stephens is on vacation taking
care of that new daughter at his
house. Then there’s Jim Jones,
who is getting into practice from
the beginning. We understand that
Jim has been spending his vaca
tion walking the floor with that
son. How about it, Jim? Ruth
Lancaster leaves us for another
job in Hendersonville. We will
miss you Ruth and do come back
to see us. This romance of “Pee
Wee” Peden seemed to have come
to an abrupt end. Lita Steppe
seems to be a little more settled
since she finally finished that wed
ding dress and saw her roommate’s
wedding successfully over. There’s
an unusual gleam in “Kay” An
derson’s eye; could it be from
those five letters she received at
once? Felicia Edwards and Gladys
Burnette report a wonderful week
end in Greensboro. Did Ruby
Brookshire have to make all these
girls envious of her husband?
Johnnie Jackson carries her fa
vorite picture nearest ,her heart,
that being one Glover when he
was three years old. Lucille Heff
ner really made a hit over at
Moore General Hospital. Reba Rus
sell’s better half is now in Yuma,
Arizona; those letters she’s getting
are better known as “sugar bulle
tins.” Pictures seem to be all the
rage — there’s M. Carpenter, who
received the latest from the South
west Pacific. Soldier, sailor or
marine? Let us in on it, “Mil.”
Yours tir dew drops and June
twines toward July.
“Sniff and Snoof.”
Finishing Touches
I think we can be safe in saying
that summer is on its way, con
sidering the lobster red color of
some of our gang..
We wish Charles C. and Charles
Sitton, who are going into service,
much luck and may they serve our
country with the very best of their
ability.
Someone suggested purple and
green as a good color combination
for uniforms. Wonder where the
idea came from. I’m sure A W..
or M. F. wouldn’t know.
We suggest Manson H. should
start on a career as a lawyer as
he seems to make a very able
attorney. He recently had the hon
or of signing a document for a
couple of clients. Did the “case”
go over big, gals?
After getting your crew cut,
Clark, you can say you were caught
in a “hair raid.”
Most appropriate name “Half
pint” for number two operator.
A sure sign of spring is the
blossoming of flowers in the girls
curls. Annabel wears violets. Gene
a pansy and Becky C. has sug-
gester clover blossoms.
With these little bits of news
we leave you ’til next month.
