Cliffside, May. 18 — That gentle breeze that is drifting in thru the window sure is appreciated. This writing is a job and a half. And whenever we write up the news we need new breezes to stir and turn over our few little wheels that have gone rusty on us.
Whenever this is printed, school will be closed until another term. Goodbyes have been said and promises to keep in touch with intimate friends have been made. The teachers are making preparations to leave for their homes or making plans for much needed vacations.
Honolulu Strollers are on the air and if they would play for an hour it would be much better in our opinion.
We wish to thank the writers of Rambling Notes for the compliments they sent us last week. But why say something about the boys of town, since they like to stay up late so well, especially a certain one.
Hello, Paul and Luther. Our letter got off alright [all right]; thanks to you.

To readers and friends of the Forest City Courier and all eligible voters in Rutherford county:
Ladies and gentlemen, we take great pleasure in presenting to you as a candidate for our county’s next Solicitor the Honorable D. C. Whitaker. We have been pleasantly associated with Mr. Whitaker in church and business affairs for the past 10 years. We can assuredly rely upon his justice and ability to fill the office, and make dear old Rutherford county one of its best and most conscientious Solicitors. Mr. Whitaker is a man of remarkable character, his influence for good is felt by all with whom he comes in contact. A man of unusual ability, marked by success in all undertakings—his opinions of right and justice, his deep thinking and clear understanding of law and order, entitles him to our most sincere and earnest consideration. Mr. Whitaker is in keeping with an established principal: “If you cannot keep your hands usefully employed, attend to the cultivation of your mind.” As a church man he is an active Christian, B. Y. P. U. director, superintendent of the Sunday school. All have been blessed by his leadership. He is now a builder and teacher of the Young Men’s large Bible class, a deacon in the church, chairman board of Trustees, Board of Public Welfare, Advisory Council FERA Committee, Adult Education, WPA., President Rutherford County Club, Vice State Commander of American Legion, chairman of Publications Committee for Griffin’s Rutherford County History, Red Cross Committee and chairman of committee Cliffside Democratic Precinct—interested, active in all civic affairs of the town and county. We do not hesitate to place him before the good people of Rutherford county as a man well qualified for his office of County Solicitor. His friendly smile and congenial personality is contagious. You will find him accurate, efficient in all things pertaining to the progress and welfare of his fellowman. And actuated by these motives, we urge you to go your respective district June 6th and cast your ballot for the Hon. D. C. Whitaker for County Solicitor.
MRS. R. B. WATKINS,
