To Public Spirited Summertonians:
Last week, after having heard sev
eral people deploring the fact that
Summerton was scarcely represented
in any newspaper in the State, we
gathered "Summerton Sayings" and
sent them to The Times. Pending
their reception, we preferred to re
main intcognite to the greater number
of you. This reception has been so
cordial, however, that we are embold
ened to ask each one of you to aid us
in this venture for the good of our
town. It is our desire to represent
every one and not become limited to
one street or to one "set." To do this
we must have your corporation. If
you, or your friends, are entertaining
a friend, if you, or your friend, are
going away, if you observe anything
of interest let us know; just give us
a hint and we will get the facts. Don't
be afraid to see your name in print
-honestly, it's a grand and glorious
feeling." Try it!
Remember that we receive no fin
ancial returns. Our whole desire is
to see our town boosted. It is a pity
that our town has not a press club or
publicity bureau for wider dissemina
tion of information throughout the
State. Here is a wonderful oppor
tunity for a wide awake school sup
erintendent to render a real service
to the community.
If we are willing to do our best,
won't you help us? Let's put Sum
merton on the map.
We are proud to learn that one of
the two four-year county scholarships
