Along The Way
Curtis Long, Roxboro lad, brother of D. D. V. Long, says
that he is no longer a “jitterbug”. Curtis recently issued the
statement that he was older now and that he was a mature
business man, therefore, he could not afford to be seen ‘jit
terbugging”. This column passes this sad news on to the peo
ple of this community who had hoped to see Curtis in action
during “Hospitality Week”.
Arthur Bradsher, twin brother of Dewey, has decided to
move to Roxboo and thus look forward to 'his future here.
Arthur is a young man; look at Dewey and you can see how
young he really is, and so he should make Roxboro a very
valuable citizen. Time alone will tell.
Here is a list of new houses that will be glad to have any
number <xf guests during “Hospitality Week”: the houses of
Jack Hughes, Arthur Rimmer, Jack Fowler, Jimmy Millican,
Tom Shaw and Ivey James. No invitations are needed. People
are urged to come right in and make themselves at home.
There will be plenty to eat and hospitality will reign supre
me. The houses are all new and everything will be juet right
for guests who would like to spend a week in the “Courteous
