Alberlson Post
Burns Mortgages
The celebration of the 32nd an
niversary of Armistice Day, the end
of hostilities in World Wjir I, was
marked by the Simmons- Mewborn
Turner Post 379 of the American
Legion at Maxwell's Mill on Sat-
urday with comradeship, reverence,
fine fo:J and fire.
There was a roaring biaze in the
fireplace of the Legion Hut to ward
against the chill of the overcast
day for the comfort of the 100-odd
persons gathered, but the fire that
was most important was a small
one set by five-year-old Andrea
Mewborn, daughter of Tyson Mew
born, one of the three men of the
Community who died in World War
II. and for whom the post is named.
The fire she set with a match,
with the assistance of Commander
Durham Grady consumed the mort
gage and other debt papers, now
completely paid, which were held
for her by Past Commander Charlie
Thompson. The building, moved as
surplus from Bogue Field in May,
1948, held the first meeting of the
Maxwell Mill post in September
of that year. It was estimated that
something more than $6,000 has
been spent on the attractive Legion
home in the moss-draped oak grove
over-looking the mlllpond, but its
value is above $10,000 when the
actual physical value, with the do
nated labor and materials is con
sidered. Principan speaker was I. T. Val- ;
entine, well known Nashville at-,
