KENANSVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA
Yesterday afternoon about 6:30
Warsaw folks were treated to a
new kind of sound.xStandlng on
Bland Pickett's front porch we
heard a noise that sounded like
a train was passing through town.
Also we noted a sound on the
roof that reminded us of acorns
falling in the fall. Nothing parti
cular was noted In the sky and
the wind was not too strong. A
heavy black cloud was overhead
and a few flashes of lightning
were seen. The noise grew strong
er and the thought of a cyclone
flashed through my mind. I ran
into the street to lee If a train was
passing and then looked into the
sky for signs of a funnel shaped
cloud. The noise grew louder and
closer. The sky got darker and
suddenly the bottom of the sky
seemed to open and hall covered
everything. Hail as large as guinea
eggs literally covered the streets
tearing leaves from the trees and
damaging shrubbery and flowers.
In a few minutes it was over. I
drove out of town, south, for about
two miles and found the hall had
run out Towards Kenansville it
seemed to have played out about
a mile from town I saw one corn
field literally ruined. Reports say
over 100 window glass were broken
out of the high school building.
Following the ball a light rain set
Friday morning we . have not
heard of any hall from other parts

EVERY DAY LIFE
By: Mrs. Howard Joiner
While traveling from .North
Carolina to Georgia, we were un
decided about a road, due to a de
tour, and stopped at an intersec
tion where an old fellow was stand
ing, and inquired the best route.
The old fellow speeled off some un
intelligible directions and then sug
gested that we let him rid and
he would show us exactly the tight
road to take. After riding several
miles in silence he suddenly ex
claimed, "Hey, Stop, this is where
I get off." Now greatly puzzled, I
anxiously inquired, "but how about
the right road, which one shall we
take?" Without batting an eye, he
replied, "Hey, Folks, you go right
back to the place where you picked
me up, and turn to your right and
you'll be headed on the right road."
A young man recently married
a middle-aged woman for her mon
ey. While showing off her new
furniture to friends, she remarked,
You know we couldn't have bought
all this if it hadn't bee'n for my
