Reyiewing The Highlights Of Bygone
By RUTH-P. GRADY v
Ever since I was a small child the
words "Armistice Day" have stood
out in my mind as the next to big
gest day in the year, the one next
to Christmas. I can feel to this day
the thrill of the band in the Arm
istice Parade and the beauty of the
floats. Band music has always done
something to me, and that was about
the only opportunity that we kids
had to hear a real band. Armistice
morning was either icy cold or
rainy, but it never daunted our spir
its. . We were always wrapped up
warm and snug and mother always
checked to see that we had on our
despised overshoes, but she would
always let us follow the parade,
and check by the carnival grounds
to hear the blaring music, and when
we were much -older we began to
enjoy the dances. But nothing was
ever quite as wonderful to me as
Thinking about Armistice the oth
er day, I had the desire to delve
back into the files of the Duplin
Times and . pick up a few of the
Headlines through the past twenty
years. It Was amazing to find that
headlines seemed so mediocre in
comparison to the outstanding head
lines of memory, I did find that
the Armistice celebration started in
Warsaw in the year 1921, and that
must have been about the time I
was old , enough-to begin helping
serve at the Methodist booth. (It
seemed that we must have had one
'about every year.)
- Our records began in 1935 and
Judge Grady was the' speaker that
day with , an attendance of about
15,000. The Warsaw P. T. A. won
the first prize in the float which
portrayed . the home, . school and
urcn,- wiiile in ;ithe background
was a miniature eemetey emoha

that these might live. .. ; .
