Cliffside, May. 4 — Hello, friends, out under the shade of the spreading water oak trees two girls are putting their brains together to make up this crazy column. The bees go humming by and the birds are singing and whistling to their hearts content. Summer is here and children are beginning to leave off their shoes and play around in their bare feet. School is almost out and there is the hustle and bustle that usually comes at the end of school. Commencement time is here and everyone is happy that school is over, or there may be some that wish school would continue, as there comes a feeling of sadness when we must part with dear friends and comrades.
This coming Sunday is Memorial Day in Cliffside. The people who have loved ones buried here, no doubt, will be glad to know that the cemetery will be cleaned off as usual, every grave and grave lot. And the nicely planned walks will be in perfect condition. All due to the kindness and consideration of Mr. Chas. H. Haynes, president of Cliffside Mills, and in behalf of Cliffside residents we extend to Mr. Haynes our thanks and deepest appreciation.
Signed: Mrs. R. B. Watkins.
Thursday evening the annual Junior-Senior banquet will be held in the Haynes Memorial building. An enjoyable program has been arranged. The banquet will be supervised by the capable and efficient economics teacher, Mrs. H. L. Robertson.
Sunday is Mother’s Day the world over. If we have no mother to tell how much we love her, let us try to do some kind deed to somebody’s mother in memory of others who have passed the shinning portals. Which leads us to repeat the greatest legacy the mothers can leave their children is a Christian character. (Mrs. R. B. Watkins)
Word was sent to us that Cliffside has more pretty girls than any other town of its size in the state. (They must be hiding for we haven’t seen them This is no slam on the girls, tho.) Boys, if you like curly-headed girls, Cliffside is the place to come to. It was reported that over fifty girls have new permanents. Wish we were in the beauty parlor business, for women and girls simply must stay lovely. No wonder so many men are bankrupt around these parts.
To a tall handsome, distinguished young man, who by the way wears spectacles: We hope you like our town as well as we like having you with us. The “show” was awfully good and the next time you go, be sure you see “Follow the Fleet.” Girls, why not patronize the Home Store?
We are wondering if a certain boy in Ellenboro has any socks. Who will be the first to donate a small offering in behalf of this good cause? It will be appreciated by the girls who seem to take an interest in this sockless man.
