I think of the teen years in Caddo as the “good times”, filled with activities, prosperity, and people. The teen issues of The Herald are also filled with information! This is just one column from the locals page and it has a little bit of everything. Be sure to read the biography of Helen Holmes, leading lady of “Lass of the Lumberlands” after you read the rest of the locals. Don’t want to lose my audience. Lol

Mrs. Goodman last week installed a new electric popcorn popper and peanut roaster. In its operation everything is done by electricity. The corn is parched or popped by electrically heated plates, is conveyed, buttered, cleaned and sacked without the touch of human hands. This enterprise is quite costly, but doubtless will prove a paying investment. (Mrs. Goodman owned the Electric Theater.)
