Next Saturday, the Arnoldsburg ball team will give a Field Day
meet at the Fair Grounds at that place, which will be full of sport, such as
foot races, broad jumping, etc. The main event will be a ball game between the
Arnoldsburg and Grantsville teams, the weather permitting. Everyone should go
and enjoy the excitement of a real fast ball game.
The hunting season for squirrels opened Sept. 1.
Tode Bennett killed 22 squirrels in one day’s hunt, and it
wasn’t much of a day for squirrels either.
Contractor J.V. Tulley, who underwent an operation for
appendicitis, returned with his family to this place, Wednesday evening. He is
still in a very feeble condition, but is able to superintend the work on the
bridge piers at Grantsville.
It is a favorite pastime of most Americans to discuss what the
country needs. Just now, in a period as critical as any that the Republic has
faced, we might point out that what the nation needs most is the loyal support
of patriotic men and women and the confidence of those who believe in the
democratic way of life.
There is no substitute for loyalty. Flag waving, public
demonstrations and community-wide expressions of solidarity do not replace the
faithful individual, upon whom successful government depends. As a citizen, it
is essential for you to make your contribution to the United States of America.
We would hesitate to suggest, what any man, woman, or child do
in the present emergency. We do not have the intelligence to outline a program
for all to follow. We would modestly recommend that loyal Americans consider
their present condition and the plight of
their country and make positive contribution to the common good.
Do not mislead yourself. You cannot make a positive contribution
to the cause of civilization in the face of great danger without some personal
sacrifice. If you have any plan in mind that enables you to escape the pressure
of world conditions, you can put it aside, because it will not work. You cannot
contribute at a profit.
