The Caddo Herald
July 31, 1931
The Liberty Murray Club met Monday night July 27 in response to the statewide call for relief meetings and attended to the following business. We went on record as favoring a program of road building in our immediate community and asking the governor to locate some road improvement work to relieve the unemployed of our community.
We also added some new names to our club membership. Our committee on investigation gave the following report:
We, your committee on investigation, beg leave to submit the following report. We find that there are approximately 100 families that are or will be unemployed by the first of January 1931 and will also be without the necessities of life; therefore we earnestly pray that some form of public work is allocated in our district; we especially recommend the improvement of our road to connect us to Highway 75 which is less than two miles away. Respectfully submitted: Ocie Faudree, Roy Culbreath, Austin Green, and C. W. Banta, committee.
Our Murray Club is now composed of the following membership: W. D. Lovett, J. A. Lashly, C. W. Banta, H. T. Faudree, Ocie Faudree, Mrs. H. T. Faudree, Mrs. C. W. Banta, J. C. Corbett, Ro Culbreath, A. F. Green, J. F. Smith, Edward Lane, F. L. Moss, Oscar Stanley, A. L. Henninger, Jessie Faudree, Rufus Allen, Mrs. Annie H. Hartman, Paul Spraggins, Jettoe Allen, Nettie Culbreath, Miss Daisy Allen, C. W. Banta, Jr., Mrs. Ethel Banta, Mrs. Della Springer.
