Cliffside, May. 11 — Hello, friends. The only thing we can think about right now is this hot weather. So begin to look around for the old bathing suit, for if this weather keeps up you’ll be needing it. With school out and nothing to worry about, the ole swimming hole is going to be the most popular place this summer. Naturally with the coming of summer, our minds would turn to thoughts of how to keep cool. Just to find a good, cool, shady nook would please us just fine. Maybe this writing would be better anyway
Fishing seems to be another sport that is quite popular in Cliffside. We have seen several big fishes that have been caught recently and they would weigh at least four or five pounds. Fishing is no hobby of ours so we will pass on to more interesting things.
Speaking of sports, the tennis court wins a close race. Tennis is an exercising and is not only a pastime but helps you physically as well. And baseball, I think, would come at the head of the list, especially with the boys.
