My good friends of Kenansville,
Mr. and Mrs. J. L .'Williams, cele
brated their 54th wedding anniver
sary last week. Lestie and Mrs.
Mary had to celebrate so they spent
the weekend at Carolina Beach.
Lestie says the only trouble with
their celebration was that their dau
ghter, Miss Margaret Williams,
went to chaperene them. Lestie, I
expect that was a good idea, fqr if
Margaret hadn't been along, you
would have slipped I* to a square

will have about twice the midway
that the group had last year. About
20 rides and 45-50 sideshows and
concessions are expected.

literally flocked to the commercial

50% increase in the number of

It, when you can have from 10,000
to 50,000 people pass your booth, see
your product and your name and
it only cost $25.00 to $40.00 (depend
ing on the size of the booth) you
can't beat it." It's almost like an
actor having a captive audience. I
thought everyone coming to the
fair would only be interested in the
midway, but the Jaycees have it
arranged so that you have to walk
right past the booths to get to the
midway and the people really re
spond to the commercial booths. "I
wouldn't miss being there for the
world, and it seems there are a kit
of other people who feel the same
way." said one merchant.
