i Our little town and community
for some time has needed a means

a complete newspaper of our own.

in these counties have ever given
us adequate coverage-of our local

A concrete example of this was
brought to my attention, today
while talking with one of our local
merchants. "Why I am selling that
flour for less money than anybody
in town or In any of the surround

gated and found that he was correct
in his statement The flour he
showed me was stacked on the
floor in the middle of his store. No
body saw It or noticed the price of
the flour unless their attention was
called to when they came Into the
What chance did that merchant
have? Absolutely none. Other mer
chants in other towns were adver
tising their special prices. The flour
was selling In other towns for more
money perhaps to some of our own
townspeople yet It could have been
bought cheaper right here in our
Today I called on a very fine
friend of mine, Rev. E. N. Teague,
pastor of the Piney Grove Baptist
Church. Was I surprtsedT Those
folks in that community certainly
have gone to town in the past year.
They have one of the finest chjirch-

parts. Very few of us know about
that church, yet, we are their nei

the near future. The story behind

of the Kings Methodist Church;
Mrs. Hazel Skipper, of the Piney

Monk Troublefield, of The Aleott
Book Club and many others. They
all promised to send news concern

Many of the merchants and
townspeople have promised their
full cooperation in this enterprise.
I have lived here long enough and
know them well enough to know
that they will give that cooperation.
From time to time prominent
men in our town and community
will write this column. I originated
it in order to give those people who
have something to say an oppor

living we feel it so richly deserves.

The board delayed their deci

could be made and a consensus of
the opinion of the - townspeople
could be arrived at.
A delegation of ladies living near
the city limits on the Clinton Road.
asked that a cement sidewalk be
constructed from the Presbyterian
church to the city limits. The board
stated that due to inadequate funds
thet town could not build the walk
at present but would see that a
good sand-clay walk be built in that
particular neighborhood .
