for that Ford car you want, in order to insure yourself of the earliest possible delivery.
Runabout, Touring Car, Coupe, Sed?n or One Ton Truck
Production is coming through in limited quantities at present. It takes some time to turn the big factory
back from 100 per cent Government work to 100 per cent production of Ford cars. So first come, first served.
The demand is big from every part of the country, and the Ford Motor Company will be impartial in the ef
fort to serve fairly every one of the great army of Ford dealers. This means that for some time to come we
are not going to have enough cars to supply our trade, so, as above stated, those who place their orders first,
will have first delivery. You can rest assured that this rule will be strictlo fol
lowed. Again we urge your placing early orders if you want delivery before fall.

Students' Entertainment to be
Held at Johnston.
On Friday evening of this week,
the entertainment which was given
in the Edgefield Opera House on last
Thursday evening by the students
of Edgefield county will be repeated
Every student in Edgefield County
who has attended school away from
home is invited, whether you have
been present before or not. Come and
add to the value of the entertain
ment and uphold the honor of your
own institution of learning.
The prices of admission will be 50,
35 and 25 cents and the programme
will be given in the Johnston High
School Auditorium. There you will
see a large part of the beauty and
chivalry of our county who are pre
paring themselves through education,
for the battle of life.
The proceeds will go towards pay
ing for the Memorial tablet which
will be placed on our Court House,

The College Students' Entertain
ment on Thursday evening in the
Edgefield Opera House was a great
success, and this in sp.^e of pouring
rain, half the performers and half
the audience absent. We write this,
because while the Opera House was
about full of people, it would have
been packed if the night had been
propitious. The stage was also full of
those who were to give a programme,
and yet if all had been there the
footlights would have radiated upon
a greater mass of beauty and chiv
It was altogether a very fine occa
sion, and each number was attractive
and loudly applauded. The hour was
late and sd no encores could be given,
as the heavy rains prevented early
gathering of those from out of town.
About $95.00 was taken in at the
door, which goes to the Memorial
Edgefield people proved their in
terest and courage by giving a large
and representative audience on a
very bad night, but they were amply
rewarded by a good programme.
Dedication Service at Baptist
On Sunday, July 6, we shall have
the dedication services of the First
Baptist Church. There are several
things I wish to say and to ask.
First of all, I want, as a pastor, every
member of the church to be in the
Sunday School that morning and that
i full attendance be found at the
Baraca class. Then I want to ask that
?very family have a basket in order ?
that we may have a good dinner on
che grounds. We don't wish to have
an elaborate dinner at all but just
mough to give everybody enough to
satisfy hunger. I realize that the
cooking of the dinner is work, but we
?nave this dedication but once and
jinner on the grounds only occasion
ally; so gladly can we make prepara
tions and endure any hardness be
muse of the joy and the greatness of
;he day. At eleven forty-five, Dr.
M. D. Jeffries of Merr~his, a former
pastor, will preach the dedication1
sermon. At three thirty-five in the '
afternoon Dr. J. F. McLean of Aiken ;
?viii preach. At nine at night Dr. C. j
E. Burts, pastor of the First Baptist J
Dhurch of Columbia, and a former '
pastor here, will preach for us.
.This should be a wonderful day
for the community and the church.
Our church is out of debt. Let us
come therefore, with love and pray
er and consecration to dedicate the
house and ourselves to the service of
We wish to take this means of in
viting all other denominations to wor
ship with us. We welcome 'you and
will be glad to have you worship with
us, rejoice with us and enjoy the din
ner on the grounds.
1. Don't forget that we want the
300 in Sunday School.
2. You men, don't forget that we
want over 100 in the Baraca class.
Our enrollment will give us this. So
come, fellows-come all.
3. Don't forget to bring your en
velope with your offering. Let none
of us appear before the Lord empty.
If you are in arrears with your
pledge fix everything up to date.
As your pastor who is deeply grate
ful for the quick and noble response
that has been made to my appeals I
ask for your best for that day. May
we come in the spirit of prayer and
love to all the services of that day
not forgetting the Sunday School.
