Liberty Items (written by my great-grandfather)
School will commence at Liberty Hill Monday July 21.
Elder T. L. Ward preached at Liberty Sunday evening; the crowd was small owing to the hot weather. Only a few came out; someone suggested that the populace was due to land in a hotter place than Liberty for letting a little hot weather interfere with their attendance at church. Be that as it may, it don’t keep people from dreading to doll up and face the hot sun.
John Lane was Miss Daisy Allen’s escort Sunday evening and Gene Willis was with Miss Idalla Long.
C. W. Banta and wife of Wewoka and Miss Iolene Lowery, also of Wewoka, spent a few days with C. W. Banta of Liberty last week.
Arch Stewart and wife of Oklahoma City visited W. R. Snow last week. The thresher is making its annual round of the Liberty oat fields this weekend. The people are very busy.
The young folks had a merry goround at Roy Childers last Saturday night.
Ernest McCreary is moving back to Liberty Thursday of this week. We wish he would bring with him a dozen or more as good citizens as he is.
Mr. Editor- after reading your big fish story of two weeks ago, this scribe sallied forth to try his luck at angling. After spending two days and a night on Boggy he landed one fish that could be mailed across the United States under cover of a two cent postage stamp. If we could prove that your fish tale exaggerated in the least we would be tempted to sue for damages. Did you spit on your bait? Rufe Bolts
