Concerning mistakes, a
neighboring editor says
“Everybody makes them. But
it seems the ones we make are
best. When you find a mistake
in this paper, consider that it
was put there for a purpose.
We like to publish something
for everybody, including those
who are always looking for
mistakes.” Well, that might
not exactly sum my feelings
up, but there’s a certain
amount of truth contained in
those sentiments.
It seems a real pity that
certain spring high school
sports have never been given
the kind of support and back
ing they deserve. Looking over
the crowd at a track meet at
Lexington High last week, it
was quite obvious that there
just wasn’t a large number of
local supporters present. As
a matter of fact, it seemed as
though the two out-of-county
teams had about as many sup
porters on hand as the locals.
The colorful nature of track
as a sport means entertain
ment at its best.
Speaking of the “cinder
sport," LHS coach Woodson
Earle is presently conducting
a one-man drive to secure bet
ter facilities for local track
meets. Certainly, officials are
doing an excellent job in con
ducting the meets with what
now exists. The trouble is
that there just isn’t enough
to work with. Improved track
facilities should be high on the
list of improvement projects
at LHS.
Funeral Services
Held In Lexington
For Florida Woman
Funeral services for Mrs.
Eva Evans Fryer, a native of
Lexington, were held Monday
morning at the Southern Fu
neral Home Chapel with burial
following in Odd Fellows Ce
metery. The Rev. P. D. Bragg
and Rev. David Skinner offi
ciated.
Mrs. Fryer died Friday at
her home in Zephyerhill, Fla.
of a heart condition. She was
82.
The widow of the late W.
Johnson Fryer who died in
1941, Mrs. Fryer is survived
by a son, Monroe Fryer of
Lexington; two daughters,
Mrs. Cecil Waldrop of Lexing
ton and Mrs. Melville Hall of
Zephyerhill; a brother J. T.
Evans of Memphis; two grand
daughters and a great-grand
daughter.
Mrs. Fryer was a member
of the First Baptist Church of
Zephyerhill and of the Loraine
Tilford Chapter of the Wo
men’s Society of Christian Ser
vice at that church. She was
also a member of the Zeph
yerhill Garden Club and held
life membership in the Ameri
can Legion Auxiliary.
“ Well, of all things! Practical
jokes are fine, but this time
l think some “good friend”
has gone just a little too far.
Included in my mail this week
were “replies” from two lone
ly heart clubs which had re
ceived a letter someone else
apparantly wrote and signed
my name to, inquiring about
their services. True enough,
us single folks have got to
stick together, but those “You
Must Have Someone To Love”
clubs just aren’t too appealing.
Of course, it must be admit
ted that I have considered
playing the same joke on
some acquaintances, so per
haps harsh criticism is not
too appropriate.
