On June 1st, The Alleghany Times
■will become the property of others.
This change brings to Alleghany
county two new families who come
highly recommended and we are
confident that the people of the
county will give them a cordial wel
come and we trust our people will
give them also their hearty co-oper
ation in their new adventure among
The task of publishing a newspa
per in a small county where there
are few stores, is no easy one and
it will require the assistance of all
to make a success. The more sup
port, the better your paper can be
made and it is our earnest desire
that the. people will give these new
men more consideration than at any
They are leaving good positions to
enter into this new task in order to
bring Sparta and community a bet
ter newspaper and making a sacri
fice in so doing. It is everyone’s
duty to realize this fact and make a
special effort to assist them in do
ing something for our town and
county, either in a small way or
greater depending on their ability
to perform. It depends on the sup
port received just what success your
paper will be.
Every dollar invested in advertis
ing will net the advertiser 100 per
cent profit and the more advertis
ing the paper receives the better pa
per you will have since it takes ad
vertising to pay bills. Every mer
chant in the county can well afford
to give their newspaper four times
the amount of advertising as here
tofore. This would increase the
amount of sales in a profitable way
and will enable your newspaper to
become bigger and better.
As the town grows maks your pa
per grow with it. There is no great
er asset to any community than a
newspaper. It moulds public opinion
and is always ready to advance good
ideas regarding the improvement
and up-building of your community.
Again we urge every public
spirited citizen to get behind these
splendid young men and help them
in their efforts to help you and your
community. After all, it is your
newspaper and you are just having
them to publish it for you. Its suc
cess depends on what you want it
to be, so if you want a good news
paper it is up to you more than it
is to the publishers.
IX MEMORY OF SARAH AND
Sarah Catherine Crouse was born
April 14, 1848, departed this life
May 4, 1933, age 85 years 20 days.
Isom Freelin Crouse was born
January 14, 1849, departed this life
May 9, 1933, age 84 years, 4 months
and 25 days.
These noble pioneers were mar
ried on December 16, 1869. To
them were born nine children: Duf
fy, Walter and Glenn; six daughters:
Margaret Brown, Tena Fender, Do
cia Crouse, Jane Brown, Mary Brown
and Francis Sparks. One daughter
preceeded them to the grave about
eleven months ago. They had 30
grandchildren and 22 great-grand
shildren. They were both consistent
members of the church and worked
together for God’s cause. They were
members of the Primitive Baptist
church at Zion and were always
found there at the hour of worship
when possible. They were a family
that could not be excelled in .their
home as neighbors and friends of
the poor and their kindly advise will
live on in the minds and hearts of
many and their precept and example
will follow into generations.
Mrs. Crouse was the daughter of
Jacob and Peggy' Crouse. Mr.
Crouse was the son of John and
They were buried at the Crouse
cemetery just five days apart to
await the resurrection when they
could come forth to meet the God
whom they had loved and worshiped
for many years together.
It could be said of these Christian
citizens, without question, that they
were at rest and will reap the re
ward prepared for them for their
good deeds while in the service of
God and man.
Having qualified as administrator
of the estate of E. L. McMillan, de
ceased, notice is hereby given to all
persons holding claims against the
estate to present them to the under
signed within twelve months from
this date or this notice will be
pleaded in bar of recovery. All per
sons indebted to the estate are noti
fied to make settlement immediately.

May 9, 1933
A great thing has occurred amongst us. We have made a completo
turn-around, and at last America's face is toward the future.
Three years_1929 to 1932-we Americans looked backward. All
aur old financial and political machinery was geared to pull us out of
the depression by the same door through which we entered. We
thought it simply a case of going back the way we came. It failed.
We now realize that the way out is forward-through it.
Thanks for that belongs to President Roosevelt. Inauguration
Day he turned the Ship of State around. Having observed the failure
of sincere efforts to haul us back the .way we came, he designed a new
method-new political and financial machinery-to pull us out
the way we are going—forward. He is clearing international
obstacles out of the way; he does not stand in awe of tariffs. The
people begin to feel that he does not take advice from the "inter
ests" ; that he has courage and loyalty to work for one supreme
interest only-the welfare of the American people. That is a big
achievement for two months in office.
And now we all look to what is coming; we grow less and less
concerned with what is behind. We are looking for a hand-hold on
the haul rope. Every man wants to do what he can, and all he can.
The best thing I can do for the Country is to create industry
by building good motor cars. If I knew anything better to do, I
would do it. Industry must be my contribution. Motor cars must
face ahead to the future, like everything else. They are so much a
part of the Nation's daily life that if the£ lag behind they hold
the Country back.
