Those of us who braved the rain
and chilly winds to see The “At
torney for the Defense” were well
paid for our trouble. The young
people from Alcorn certainly put
on a real drama.

had thoroughly trained their
stars; and between the acts our
boys scored high with their Swing
Bands. Mr. and Mrs. Jones of
Clarksdale who are the parents of
Mr. Robert Jones, who played the
title role, motored to Mound
Bayou to witness the plav. Quite
a number of Mound Bayou social
ites attended the performance. The
Alcornites were entertained at
Ouida’s Grill after the performance.
Thursday night’s pleasures will
live in our memories a long time.

sick attack early Monday morning.
Her relatives and friends are ex
periencing keen anxiety over her
condition. Her children from
Chicago are expected to arrive

has been for the past three weeks
in attendance at the sick bed and
funeral services of her mother.
Consoling frien Is thrcnged Mrs.

soothe her weary eyes they left
