in the headline that Horton had
made adrangementa to have the
babies eared .'or, Those who reed
the entire story caught the drift,
but many folks are headline read
er*- only. And that’s that.
THE BABIES WILL HAVE THE
time of their'fives at the fair. Those
who do not crawl about in the nm
sery under the grandstand will
mere than hfov nave iho protect -

them v.hile riding th» ferns wheel,
or the other spooning zkwipr.
Babies, y’knovv. are not usually
fend of the dark, but what would,
you give to see a movie reel de

unseeing' contraptions, entered - >y

TO BE BRUTALLY FRANK
about it the real drawing card of
fair.week has nothing to do with,
exhibits, champion chix, and prize
winning pica; To the kiddies fair
week means Coney Island snow
balls. pop-corn, and rides 'galore; o
the petting r.gc it is courting week
(hot court week, but sooner or late:
when the divorce get. therei. while
tire clown get the eye of the old
folks, who get the idea that there is'
something funny in life.
FROM UPCOUNTY COMES THE
word that the ministers of thr
county and Editor Page, of Kings
Mountain, aie in to do come ey
plaining for Secretary Dovton. Iri
that section, reports have it, the
people are somewhat riled about the
edict keeping onlookers out of the
fair grounds on the Sunday before
and after the fair. Perhaps they
; never hod it explained to them As
j the col'yum heard it the nwnteters
| and Editor Page petitioned fair of
j tlcials to take that step. After
| thinking it over the fair officials
! agreed. The ministers, you see.
j want the crowds on Sunday and the
1 fair wants ’em for five days In be
tween. If they go to the fair
grounds Sunday the ministers can't
get ’em and the lair would more'n
likely not gel, ’em lor the five days.
So you see? Yes.
FROM THE SUBTERRANEAN
brain territory comes the idea that
the new Indie:; rest room will not
I suffer from use since those who
j might use it are likely to line up
1 about the tent where living models
! will present .several tajnpus art
j scenes to see just how many hus -

AND WHILE THE FAIR IS

a tip to J D lineberger, acting
secretary of the chamber of com

Amazing Quality in Chevrolet History
Come in—and learn for yourself the thrill
of Chevrolet performance. Take the wheel
of your favorite model and go wherever you
like. Drive through the crowded traffic of
city streets—and note the handling case.
Step on the gas on the open road and enjoy
the swift sweep of the passing miles. Head
for the steepest hill you know—and see how
t effortlessly the Chevrolet motor will carry
J| you up. Note the balance on turns and curves
—the amaring surety with which the car
hugs the road.
Here is performance you never thought fx>s»
sible except in cars of much higher price—
—performance that comes from modem
design, from endless testing and years of con*
—performance that only Chevrolet provides
at prices so impressively low!
