SEPTEMBER 3, 1942

Many Glasgowians had a treat today watching the Stovall triplets, Jean, Jane, and Joyce, in action in the court house yard.  The three little colored girls celebrated their third birthday last Friday and their parents, Claude and Hallie Mae Stovall, of the Oak Grove section, brought them to town to have their pictures made.  When they first came in, they appeared to have stepped out of a band-box with their pink print dresses and pink hair bows, but after a few hours of cavorting around the court house yard and feasting on ice cream, popcorn, and candy, they were quite tuckered out, as was, obviously, their mother.

Ernest L. Myers, of The Old Planing Mill, has returned from Keesler Field, Missis- sippi, where he was accepted for service as a Junior Instructor in certain phases of training at the  air corps training field which, if he accepts, will include a three-months training course before he enters on such work.

More than 100 service-men’s pictures are displayed in the show window of J. J. Newberry store and have proven quite an interesting point for “lookers” for the past week.  Relatives are invited to bring pictures of their soldier, sailor, or marine for display.  Newberry’s manager, Mr. Tulloh, will provide additional space in the windows to take care of pictures that are brought in.  Upon completion of the display, the pictures will be returned in good shape to the family.

Miss Audrey Button, attractive and talented daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Button of Lucas, and Mr. John Murray Lowe, son of Esquire and Mrs. T. M. Lowe of Austin, stole a march on their friends and were married in Kinston, North Carolina on August 29.  They will remain there for a few weeks where Mr. Lowe is engaged in his work on the tobacco market.  Mrs. Lowe, a graduate of Austin-

Tracy high school and Bowling Green Business University, has been prominently identified with club work and other civic endeavors in the Lucas section all during her school work.  Mr. Lowe is a man of sterling character and an expert bookkeeper and accountant.  We join their many friends in extending our best wishes for a happy and prosperous journey on their matrimonial sea.

Luther Lowe, for several years one of Glasgow’s efficient and popular policemen, has resigned to accept a position with Swift’s Cheese Plant here.  Policeman Lowe’s many friends will regret to learn of his action as he had proven himself to be an officer possessed of splendid judgment and ability.  For the present time, he is being succeeded by Denton Strode.

The Fountain Run High School auditorium was destroyed about 7:30 this morning when it collapsed.  No one was injured since school children had not arrived for the day.  The building was completed last year at a cost of approximately $11,000 and was constructed under the auspices of WPA, or similar government agency.  Mr. Carlos High is principal.  It is understood that a recent inspection of the building confirmed Mr. High’s suspicion of the dangerous condition of the building and that steel had been bought to be used for bracing the building in an effort to save it; however, the work could not be completed in time to avoid the collapse.

Lilly B. Curry, colored, aged 50, died very suddenly Tuesday night of a heart attack.  She was a devoted, active member of the Hiseville Baptist Church.  She had made her home for the past eleven years at the home of Mrs. Bettie Crawford.  Funeral was at Oak Ridge Church, with burial in the church ground.  She was well thought of by the community, both colored and white, and will be greatly missed.

SEPTEMBER 29, 1942

Our boys are being killed on battlefields all over the world.  Our soldiers need more tanks, airplanes and guns.  Our steel mills have just issued a report that they are making six million tons less steel than they could have made this year because they could not get enough steel to run at full capacity.  Yet on the farms of Barren County, there are thousands of pounds of scrap metal doing nobody any good.  Mr. J. O. Horning, County Salvage Director, is now appealing to all citizens, as well as 4-H Clubs and all civic organizations, to hunt every piece of scrap metal and pile it up ready for markets.  During the first seven months of this year, Barren County shipped more than 3-1/2 million pounds of scrap, but more is needed.

----------

Hemp Plant Here.  The “big newspapers” report that fifteen hemp processing plants may be built in Kentucky by the Government.  We understand that the Barren County Farm Bureau has been active in efforts to obtain one for Glasgow, around which a considerable amount of hemp is now being grown.

----------

From Summer Shade.  Mr. and Mrs. Simpson, former owners of the Simpson Restaurant, have moved to their new home which they recently purchased from Mr. Johnnie Harbison.   The Simpson Restaurant has been taken over by Mr. and Mrs. Ray Word, who will begin serving the public next Wednesday.

Before being dismissed Tuesday, the grand jury turned in a report following a visit to the County Farm on Roseville, which stated that conditions there were “unclean and unsanitary.”  The jury recommended to the Fiscal Court that conditions be corrected or that certain steps be taken to provide for the present inmates and then dispose of the property.

Born to Mr. and Mrs. Odon Pierce of Wisdom on September 29, twins – a boy and a girl – weighing 6 and 6-1/2 pounds, respectively.  Mrs. Pierce will be remem-

bered by her many friends as Myrtle Gilley.  This makes the fourth set of twins in the Gilley family but this and one other set of twins are the only ones now living.

The other set is a girl and a boy of Mr. and Mrs. F. A. Gilley of Randolph.
