From The Courier, June 18, 1936
Cliffside, June 15 — This column is supposed to be written by the twin reporters, but it seems as if one of the twins has deserted her post of duty for other work that has a pay envelope to it. Can’t blame her, can you? But we have two good secretaries, how about it girls? We can tell you that this Kolumn is not what it used to be. It gets worse. Thought I heard someone say, “you’re telling me.”
Wonder what two twin girls were doing in Cliffside Thursday night? Riding around with the top rolled back in high style. You twins sure did look good—no fooling—can’t say for the rest.

A certain girl reminds: Summer is here and how! When the sun bears down it makes me want to take off to a beautiful swimming hole. Sunshine Lake seems to be a popular place now but just wait till “Tubby” gets his swimming pool open and we’ll see where the crowd goes.
Many people attended the Race Path singing Sunday night. It seems as if all young people take an interest in singing these days.
