. MARSHALL, MADISON COUNTY, N. C. FRIDAY, MAY, 25th, 1923.
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.
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

"In a communication received
from Division PassnntfAr ArfAnf
Wood, in Asheville" he "makes
me statement that the Shriners
are rather dilatory in securing
tneir accommodations to Wash
mgton in . special Pullman cars
leaving Asheville on June 4th
which cars are to be used for
sleeping purposes Coin and re
turning, also for living purposes
while in Washington.
. JThe advertisement that bias
appeared in this paper for the
past several issues quoted a lo
wer berth rate of $15.00, good
for one or two people, an upper
berth rate of $12.00 Cood for one
person and drawing room rate
or $45.00, good for at least four
persons. ' '
"The demand for Pullman cars
all over the country; is header
than can be met by therailrads
special trains comintf fromT all
points in the ,'. United Statei to
Washington. - '
"A most wonderful andsrjec
iacular program has been arrang
ed m Washington that has ever
been seen in the country. Am
ong other attractions that are
being provided, just as an illu
stration of whatlis being done
to get attractions from all over
the country, will be two Che

much is beinadone or has bepn
done lately' along the line' of
building and improvements in
our town. Since the flood in
1916 the town has chansred alto
gether and has built solidly . and
for the future.' The toarinir
away of the old. buildings and the
taking of new has .ssen nine
brick buildings put up. That is'
before this ' year. - Within the
last year or so a new era of
building has starte I and we see
as the most pretentious the new
bank building and the Roberta
building along side of this." These,
would do credit to any city of
many, timea the size of Mai
shall. - The new building of Mr.
Redmori where ' the Bakerv la
situated also fills a long heed..
The dwelling houses built bv F.
Shelton on the lower street also
gives more room for f ami Hps m ''
much needed. Then at the depot',

prepared for buildings of . Free

to the effect that the Asheville-Newport link was on the pro

been considered for several years, but reports during the' past

ject will be started, y)

plans to double track this part of the. system, but ' assert l,hat
business has been steadily growing during the past fewyears
and such an improvement wouid be of great benefit in handling1
the heavv traffic between this section and the West: as well a a .

Mr. Wood feels t h a t the
Shriners who expect to ake ad
vantage, of these sleeping car
arrangements should send their
checks without further delav in
order that there may be no'fai
lure on the part of the railway
to provide such accommodations
as are desired, but it is feared
that many late comers are going
to be disappointed for, as stated
in the beginning of this article.
the supply of Pullman sleeping
cars is extremelv limited.

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. ? It -would
mean much, to the busi
