JULY 6, 1933

Cars Wrecked in Intersection Crash.  Two Fords, of old and new vintage, were badly demolished, while their drivers miraculously escaped serious injury Monday afternoon when their cars crashed squarely in the intersection of Brown and Lewis Streets.  An old Ford driven by Herman Matthews was traveling north on Lewis, while the later model Ford roadster belonging to Bernard Reed but driven by Millard Sharp, with J.R. Landrum as a passenger, was proceeding west on Brown.  The cars crashed, the occupants were thrown out, and both cars came to rest in the ditch alongside Storey’s poultry house, and were pathetically viewed by their former drivers.

Sudden Death Removes Prominent Local Leader. Mr. P.W. Holman, one of Glasgow’s leading citizens, died very suddenly from heart trouble last Wednesday evening.  He was born in the Beckton country 59 years ago but moved to Glasgow when a young man and soon became one of the most active young business men of our city, first as a grocery clerk, then as a partner in the grocery firm of Depp, Hughes and Holman, then as assistant cashier in the Old Farmers State Bank, in which he became a director.  When the Great Depression ended his career in banking, he entered the insurance field and was meeting with remarkable success until Fate interfered and took his life.  He is survived by his wife Mrs. Annie Dickinson Holman, one daughter Mrs. Thomas R. Thomas of Frankfort, and two sons, Sidney and Paul Jr. Funeral services were held at the residence Friday morning and his body was laid to rest in the Glasgow Cemetery.

Government Pistols Reported Found.  Twenty-two 45-calibre pistols were found a short time ago when workmen were working at Cavalry Field.  The guns were said to have been hidden under some logs and, while no acknowledgment was made at the time the guns were found, one of the workmen said that the guns were divided up and are now in the possession of people in this community.  We would suggest that anyone having such a gun in his possession should turn it in to local officers or to the officers of the Cavalry organization, as it is a penitentiary offense to have this government property in one’s possession.

Happy Birthday Anniversary.  Mr. Ira D. Jones of the Nobob country reached his 47th birthday anniversary last Sunday, the 16th,  but since those birthdays have been coming so often these years, he thought little of it.  But not so with his wife.  While he was out working on the farm, she was cooking, and when he came to the house, there was nothing unusual in sight.  But when just before noon on Sunday the Joneses began gathering, it soaked into his head that there was something doing. When the last person arrived, there were 47 present, one for each year of his life.  No relatives or neighbors had been invited unless they were closely related and named “Jones.” There were no special rites of celebration, but the day was most delightfully spent in socializing Misses Virginia Boyd and Louise Timmons entertained with a slumber party at their home on Maplewood Drive last Saturday night.  Guests were Misses Sarah Frances Franklin, Mildred Howard, Lucille Harvey, Dorothy Moss, and Grace Vanzant. On Sunday morning, Miss Mary Davis chaperoned the party at a sunrise breakfast in the picnic garden at Glenview swimming pool

Two Seriously Injured When Steps Collapse. Henry Wilcoxsin of Sulphur Well and Sam W. Jones of near Knob Lick, were seriously injured Saturday night when steps leading from the bridge to the dance hall at Sulphur Well fell and dropped them to the ground a distance of about fourteen feet.  Wilcoxsin was in no condition to be removed from the hotel but, at our latest information, Jones was showing some improvement at his home, to which he was removed shortly after the accident. According to reports, the two men were sitting on the steps and watching the dance when Squire Leonard Wilcox of Green Sounty, weighing about 250 pounds, stepped onto the platform. Without warning, the steps gave way but Wilcox was able to grasp a rail which he is said he have held until he was removed to safety.
