Mr. W. L. Porter and party encountered a snow storm on their way to Florida last week.  The same can be said of Mrs. R. H. Vaughan and sons who landed in North Carolina Sunday in a heavy snow storm.  Texas even had snow several times.  The snow seemed to take a special spite at the South and gave it a good blanket of the “Beautiful White” just to let them know what snow looks like.

House Passes the Park Bill.  Four Glasgowians, Messrs. Ed N. Caldwell, Ed L. Kerley, A.E. Ely and W. H. Jones, spent Tuesday in Frankfort attending the joint session of the Senate and House, in the hearing of arguments favoring the  purchase of the Mammoth Cave area, yet unpurchased.  Arguments before the joint session were made by Congressmen M. H. Thatcher, Mr. Max B. Nahm of Bowling Green and Appellate Judge Mills M. Logan.  The bill was passed by the House and is now before the Senate.  If passed, and the Federal Government takes over the land, this part of Kentucky will greatly benefit by bringing more revenue into the Kentucky treasury.

Pickpocket Touches Enforcement Officer.  Mr. W. K. Redman of this place, U.S. Prohibition Enforcement Officer, was robbed by a pickpocket while walking along the streets of Louisville last week.  Mr. Ralston did not know exactly when the robbery was done but he soon realized that he was out $60 in cash and about $1000 in checks.  Of course, payment of the checks was stopped but William is minus $60 and then some until the checks can be re-drawn.  Maybe the experience will be worth what it cost.

The Glasgow School trustees did the proper thing in re-electing Professor R. A. Palmore, Superintendent of the Glasgow Graded and High schools.  Prof. Palmore has demonstrated his fitness for this place and under his management the schools have made fine progress.  Mr. Palmore’s life has been devoted to the education of youth, and no man living in Barren, Metcalfe or Monroe has had as much to do with the training of teachers in these counties as he has.   R. D. Ridley was unanimously re-elected as principal and athletic director of Glasgow High School for the season of 1930-31, and the following high school teachers were elected:  Elizabeth Hatchett, Gertrude Anderson, Mary M. Davis, Bethel Steen, Mattie V. Newberry, Lee Smith, Anna M. Forrest, and Mrs. Forrest Mercer.

Last Saturday morning as a Glasgow party consisting of Mrs. Perry Coffman, Mrs. Howell Pedigo, Misses Alice Rogers and Babe Richardson were on their way to Louisville in Mr. Joe Richardson’s new Studebaker, they were involved in a serious auto accident.  When about three miles beyond Elizabethtown, Mrs. Coffman, who was driving, lost control of the car, which turned over twice and landed in a 10-foot ditch.  Mrs. Pedigo was badly bruised but the others escaped without injury.  The entire party was brought back to E-town, where they boarded a train for home.  The car was completely demolished, and the wonder is that anyone escaped without serious injury.
