JUNE 5, 1930

The opening dance at the new Mammoth Cave pavilion will be given Friday night, June 6.  This pavilion is in charge of Gordon Brown and Julian Evans, both of Glasgow.  This insures the best of refreshments and attention and, to add to the evening’s pleasure, they have secured the services of the Kentucky Cavaliers, a musical organization of Glasgow which gives satisfaction wherever they are heard.
Invitation from Governor Sampson.  Mr. C. H. Moore, Kentucky Manager of the Gainesboro Telephone Exchange, has received an invitation to a reception on June 14 for employees and associates carrying on the work of the Gainesboro Telephone company and other operatives throughout the state.  The invitation was extended by Governor and Mrs. Sampson, saying they were anxious to have every one of the telephone workers, and they are at liberty to invite their friends, husbands, wives and sweethearts.  The Sampsons will have room for several hundred, all informal.
Glasgow’s aviation activities are steadily increasing.  The past week brought us many visitors of the Aeronautical world.  Sunday the new airport viewers were held spellbound by the stunt flying of Mr. Ted N. Kincannon, District Representative of the Command-Aire Aircraft Corporation of Little Rock, Arkansas.  In the early part of the day, he demonstrated the salient safety features of the Lycoming powered Command-Aire plane, while in the afternoon he soloed the ship. His riding on the turtle back with no one at the controls and his upside down flying was a spectacular feature for Glasgow’s air enthusiasts.  Ted is always welcome in Glasgow because of his ever co-operative movements in making it an air center of repute.

Mr. Terry Hatchett, who graduated in law two years or so ago and has been teaching in one of Louisville’s best schools for several years, has returned to Glasgow to make his home permanently.  He has already opened a law office

The Kentucky Utilities Company has installed two snow-white electric delivery trucks for their ice delivery.  The bodies are so constructed that the ice is delivered from each side, the vendor being protected from the sun and rain.  Being propelled by electricity, they are practically noiseless, and you had better try to remember to hang your ice card out.  If you wait until you hear the ice truck coming, you’ll miss it.  The new delivery trucks are both neat and nifty.  The drivers of these new trucks are not “Luther and Will.”  They are “Mr. Franklin and Mr. Francis.”  Kindly remember this.
Mr. and Mrs. K.E. Rapp are on a trip to Indianapolis to meet their son, Mr. Dixon Rapp, and his bride, whom they have never seen, not even her photo.  Mrs. E. L. Kerley accompanied them to Indianapolis but will remain for a visit with her mother, Mrs. J. C. Jenkins.

Rice Hibbitt, who lives near Rocky Hill in the southwestern part of the country, lost his barn and contents Saturday night by fire of undetermined origin.  With the barn, five head of mules, a lot of feed, wagon, harness, and some farm tools were burned.  The loss is only partially covered by insurance.

T. H. Alderson, who has faithfully served as Scoutmaster, has resigned that position but will remain as Assistant to the new Scoutmaster, Mr. Jack Allen Bryant.
The 4-H Club of Finney met at the school house on May 30 for their regular meeting.  Included on the program was a debate:  “Resolved that the cook stove is of more use to man than a plow.”  Miss Roena Fant took the affirmative and Miss Maxey Wooten, the negative.  Judges were W. J. Spillman of Warren County, Mrs. O. B. Green and Mrs. J. A. Mutter, Barren County.  After many arguments, the affirmative won.
From Arnett Grove:  It’s a new girl, Marguerite Elizabeth, at Mr. and Mrs. Bud Word’s. -----From Persimmon:  An 8-lb. boy has arrived at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Fowler Hammer.  They call him Joe Eagle.
We hear much about hard times and lack of money, but if you had attended the “Carnival” at the ball park last week, you would have been ashamed to say anything about hard times.  When 500 people run over each other to pay 50 cents for a ticket to see a fake wrestling match between two lightweights, and crowd every other “attraction,” you would realize that the cry of hard times is a humbug.  Now, mind you, we did not see the show, but we got a report from reliable people who were there.
Mr. Eugene Borders of Casper, Wyoming, visited his mother, Mrs. Maude Duncan on June 4 and returned home June 9.  He was accompanied by his friend, Mr. Tommy Johnson of the same town.  They made the trip by motor, a little over 3000
miles, and didn’t even have a puncture.  On Sunday afternoon, 51 people visited the Duncan home to see Mr. Borders after his five-year absence.

Dr. Oren A. Beatty left for Louisville yesterday after a visit to his parents, Mr. and Mrs. A. V. Beatty of near Temple Hill.  Dr. Beatty has his diploma but must now serve a year as an intern before stepping out as a full fledged practitioner.
