Cliffside, May. 25 — Hello, friends and how is everybody? It is terribly dusty in Cliffside at the present. Guess it is most everywhere else too. Rain would help the farmers considerably just now. Many farmers are waiting until it rains before planting anymore. We think that’s enough about dry weather and let’s think about a nice, cool swimming lake.
An announcement was made here of the marriage of Miss Ruth Jonas and Mr. Charlie White, both of this place. The wedding took place at Spartanburg, May 16, with D. D. Foster performing the ceremony. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Sid White and the bride the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Jonas. The groom holds a position with the Cliffside Mills, where they are planning to make future home. Their many friends wish them much success and happiness in their new life together.
In answer to Slam and Bang, near Forest City: We want to thank you for the nice letter; we appreciated it and thank you for the compliments you bestowed upon us. We really don’t keep our names under cover, for it seems as if some people already know, by the mail we receive. Here are our names: Sue Crowe and Lois Womack. “Please ‘tuh meetcha”! We realize four boys are getting popular in Forest City for they are never at home and we know they don’t spend their time shopping always. We wonder who the mystery man is? We not only go to the parties for a good time, but we are always on the alert for interesting news for our Kolumn.
The graduating exercises were carried out with many honors given to various boys and girls. Raymond Whitaker received his diploma and we think he earned it. For further information write the “Krazy Twins” at Cliffside.
If the people want to see a beautiful sight we invite you to visit Cliffside and see the beautiful pink and white roses that border the highway upon entering Cliffside and along the banks near the Methodist church. These flowers do much in improving the looks of the town and are appreciated by the people who have an eye for beauty.
