Mr. Paul Greer has been named by County Attorney Brents Dickinson to serve as his assistant while he is in the Army.  Mr. Greer’s return to this capacity recalls somewhat similar action in 1917 when he relinquished the office of City Attorney and U.S. Commissioner to offer his services in World War I.  With the induction of Dickinson and Terry L.

Worn-out silk and nylon are needed to be made into powder bags for our Army and Navy.  Mr. J. O. Horning, Barren County’s Salvage Director, has explained that when a large gun is fired, a bag of powder is first placed in the gun, just like the hunter used to load the old-fashioned muzzle loading guns.  The only kind of bag that will do this job properly is made of silk or nylon, since, when the gun is fired, the silk is completely burned up, and no ash or trash is left in the gun.  Thus, the gun is immediately readied to be re-loaded.  Women of Barren County are now called upon for hasty action in gathering up and delivering all worn-out silk and nylon hosiery and delivering it to dry goods stores in Glasgow, Cave City, Park City and Hiseville.  These stores will be asked to handle the receiving and wrapping for shipment at no cost to the government.  It takes from 1500 to 2300 pairs of hose to make a minimum shipment of 100 pounds.  Mrs. Randolph C. Wilson will be in charge of this local drive.  (1)

Kentucky Utilities Company article “Who Is This Man?” tells the story of General George Marshall, Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army, who, as the son of an obscure Kentuckian, wanted to attend the U.S. Military academy at West Point.  But his Kentucky-born father, who had moved to Pennsylvania, didn’t have the “pull” to get him in.  So George went to the Virginia Military Institute and, after graduating, joined the Army.  Through his own merit, he rose to become a four-star general.

His story points the way of opportunity for the young men and women of 1942, and beyond, to climb to success as long as the American system of free enterprise is dominant and keeps clear the ladder to success for rich and poor alike.  (6)

Santa Invites You!  Glasgow’s policemen had just as well clean out their whistles because they are going to have a traffic jam tomorrow night and continuing for some time that will be a whistle-blowing policeman’s joy.  It’s going to be brought about by a laughing-talking, mechanical-talking Santa Claus in the National Store window who does about everything but come out to your house and crawl down the chimney.  So convincing is he that one cannot help but get the Christmas spirit.  In Louisville last year, folks journeyed for miles to see a similar Santa in action.  The Christmas opening at the National store is scheduled for Friday night, November 27, and Santa will remain in action there throughout the Christmas season.  (1)
