The war may continue to drain the old 123rd Cavalry and Active Militia Bands, but another has sprung up for the occasion when needed.  The Cave City Band and the Glasgow Active Militia Band have been alternating with cooperative rehearsals, and they appear to be playing “down the same groove.”  We believe that when a band is needed, these two bands together can furnish it.

Our Own Affairs Must Wait.  Comes the middle of this month and our company will be 30 years old.  Because we like birthday parties (and who doesn’t) the 1200 men and women of our organization had planned to celebrate during August the company’s growth and solid achievements and have our customers at the party. But that was before Pearl Harbor.   We’re going to be much too busy for birthday parties until the next Armistice Day, and then we’ll join you all in celebrating victory! (Signed) Reddy Kilowatt, your electrical servant.  Kentucky Utilities Company, D. J. Niemeier, Manager.
