A Great Evil – Is it not a painful fact, patent to observing people in this village, that of late there has been an increasing tendency here toward harmful mischief and lawlessness, especially among a class of young boys? And may it not be correctly attributed, in at least a great measure, to the vile reading that is probably placed in the hands of many of them? I am led to ask these questions because of what I have heard and observed of late, and because of the law that effect must follow cause. If newspapers of the very worst class are publicly sold in our streets, even on the holy Sabbath, they must act as poison, especially in the minds of the young. Yesterday, I accidentally had placed in my hands a copy of a newspaper of the kind to which I allude – and a single glance at its contents revealed its vile character, and consigned it to the flames. I did not know that anything so demoralizing could be sold here, and was shocked at the revelation.

Hazel Champlin, a young lady employed in the business office of the telephone company, got her feet wet way up to her neck Sunday afternoon. She was in a boat with another young lady rowing on the river, and in attempting to step from the boat to the stone wall at Fernleigh, she alighted on the water instead of the wall. The river is deep at that point, but she hung onto the wall until rescued by Verne Hollis, who was taking his afternoon stroll, and emerged from a vine embowered retreat nearby. The young lady came out of the ordeal unruffled and seemed none the worse for the adventure.

The June Bride 1937 model is a practical young woman who believes that $30 a week as well as love is necessary before embarking on marriage. She also wants a home, children, a vacation by herself once in a while, and wants to cook well according to a survey set forth by Gretta Palmer in the June edition of Good Housekeeping, compiled from the answers to hundreds of questionnaires sent to prospective brides in every part of this country, ranging from 17 to 40 years of age. “Some girls in smaller cities and towns think that $1,200 a year is enough for a courageous couple to embark on,” Mrs. Palmer says. “Girls from larger cities place the figure a little higher.” According to the survey, less than a tenth of the brides plan to keep jobs outside the home from choice.
