Cliffside, July 13 — Hello friends. We are back again this week with more news and better news. It seems as if some people have been missing our crazy column. To tell the truth to write crazy sayings you have to have pretty good brains to write, and believe you me our brains have gone on vacation.
Just at this minute it is pouring down the rain and we are over at Mrs. R. B. Watkins and wonder how in the world we are going to get home. But we don’t mind the rain for we certainly do need it.
We wonder why Willard Metcalfe (that star baseball player at Avondale) comes to Cliffside so much. We’re not saying but did you see them at the show Saturday night.
Lookie! Lookie! What’s coming to Cliffside. None other than Dewey McDaniel and the Carolina Syncopators with the Carolina Minstrels featuring the Hopper Twins. Music, Singing and tap dancing. A real treat for all. Sponsored by Cliffside Tennis Club. Place: Cliffside Town Hall, Time: Thursday night, July 16, at 7:45 o’clock. Admission 10¢ and 15¢.
We are anticipating a pleasant time at prayer service Wednesday night. Professor Zon Robinson has charge and will give some interesting news on the B. T. U. conference at Ridgecrest. Everyone has a cordial invitation to come and hear this fine young man.
The superintendent and officers entertained the Intermediate department with a picnic at Rainbow Lake Saturday afternoon. Many outside guests were invited and a large crowd reported a nice time.
The weather is hot and we have plenty of leisure time so let us read our Bible. Be sure to read Numbers 6:24-26.
Mrs. R. B. Watkins passed on to us a compliment told to her by Mr. C. E. Alcock. We certainly do thank them both and will try to do our duty the best way we know how.
