HERE AND THERE ....
Dear Readers please allow me
to share with you a poem that
has been of much help to me
during the past few days. . .
ENCOURAGEMENT ... He
said, “I'm discouraged and
ready to quit, I’m sick of it
all and don’t like it a bit. I
feel that I’m beaten before
I’ve begun. There isn’t a way
that this job can be done.” I
stopped him, “Will you read
Luke 18?” I said, just verse
27, my friend, and instead of
giving it up as impossible, try
just once more, but this time
I’d have you apply for God to
work with you and I’ve not a
doubt, how you and your pro
ject are bound to come out.”—
Julien C. Hyer.

37 years of Progressive Growth
A change has come to Mississippi’s “Main Streets!” But
this change didn’t just happen. It has required the foresight
and cooperation of leaders in every field who had the courage
to invest in the future. Since 1923, MP&L, as a tax-paying
citizen, vitally interested in the welfare of the area it serves,
has contributed valuable leadership and technical skills to this
program of progress.
MP&L s faith in the future is even stronger today. Her
contribution as a free-enterprise business continues. She is
ready for die “Fabulous Sixties and Seventies!’
