MAKING THEM ATTLCTIVE
The Chamber of Commerce Moving
Forward.-Let Every Good Citi
zen Give at Least His Moral
The rooms at the chamber of com
merce have been touched up and, new
mat.tiog has been put on the floor of
the reading room, and shades put to
the windows. President Hunt has al
so had nice lettering put on the front
windows. It is the purpose of the
management to make the rooms at-I
tractive anrd comfortable so that the
members may find it pleasant and
profitable to spend some of their
spare moments there.
It should be kept constantly in the
minds of the people of Newberry
that the chamber of commerce stands
for the advancement of the town and
county and for the uplift of the peo
ple. If this is remem,bered no good
citizen can keep himself aloof from
the organization. If he doesn't feel
that he can afford to be an active
member, he can, at least, give it his
moral support and speak good words
for amy and, everything undertaken
by the organization. V e want to
hear every citizen in Newberry speak
ing good words for the town and the
county, and lending his support and
praise to every tning -that is launched!
it matters not who -happens to be at
the head of the enterprise. There has,
been, unforunately for the growth
and development of the county, too I
great a disposition not only not to
eooperate but actually to knock and
to act as stumbling blocks to enter
prises; sometimes, forsooth on at
count of some little personal griev
ance we may have against the men
who are < onnected with the enter
prise. This spirit must be put aside
and we must all work together. Every
eitizen should be willing to give at
least his moral support, for what
helps the town is obliged to help
every citizen of the town.
