Santa wrote Mayor Howell telling
him of the date and has asked him to

Waynesville to be on hand at that

Santa also stated that he had a
nice "sweet" present, for each boy

used bicycles,' trucks and passenger
cars. Flour bags, burlap sacks, tin
tubs, milk cans and beds of trucks
were used to carry the fish homo
and to market.
A large gold fish was displayed in
a glass jar in Jerry Liner's store
that had been caught in the lake.
Fish "stories were going the com
plete route regarding the size of fish
that had been caught. It was report
ed that carp weighing over thirtv
pounds were taken out of the waters
and eFght pound bass were common

with proper evidence in most cases
as it was quite improbable that the
"largest fish' could get away since
most of the fish were floundering
helplessly in the canals and along the
bank of the lake.
