OCTOBER 1, 1931

A new shoe repair shop has come to town and located next door to the Bus Station.  Mr. Earl Stovall, the proprietor, comes from Greenville, Muhlenberg County.
----------
The Louisville Conference of the Methodist Church, which includes Glasgow, is in session at Columbia and Rev. T. L. Hulse, Mr. Hardin Ralston and Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Hutcherson are in attendance.  Of course, everyone expects Bro. Hulse to be returned to the pastorate of the First Methodist Church here in Glasgow.
----------
Mr. Jim Bybee, who recently skipped from his home on the north side of town when officers raided his home in search of liquor, returned a few days ago and was rewarded by a fine of $250 and 30 days in jail.
----------
Last Friday afternoon a car driven by Jack Kincheloe ran into a telephone pole on the curve on Leslie Avenue in front of the home of Luther Ellis, demolishing the car.  Other occupants of the car were Loren Nelson and Gene Burks, Nelson having a number of teeth knocked out and broken, and Kincheloe and Burks receiving a few minor injuries.  It seems that the boys were on their way to a football game, were going very fast, and skidded in the loose gravel, the street  having only recently being finished and the surface not being completely settled.
----------
Miss Bethel Steen suffered a sprained ankle last Friday afternoon but, by being carried to the school building, has not lost any time from her classes.

OCTOBER 8, 1931

It is well known that Mr. F. N. Bradford has advertised his hardware business for sale.  During this depression, buyers were scarce, so his brother, Mr. B. F. Bradford, decided to buy it for his son, Mr. William Bradford, who is now in school in Bowling Green and will graduate next June.  And so, this famous store will continue as “Bradford’s” with Mr. B. F. Bradford looking after it until next June, when the young man will take hold.  This is a fine arrangement, and everyone will wish the greatest success for William as he follows his father and uncle in business.
----------
Mr. L. E. Hicks, postmaster at Eighty-Eight, has sold his store at that place to Mr. Ervin Houchens, and as payment received 182 acres of land known as the Sant Glass place, 1-1/2 miles this side of Eighty-Eight.  Mr. Houchens, being busy with his grocery here, has put the Eighty-Eight store in the hands of Mr. Leonard Furlong, assisted by Miss Eda Hunt.  Mr. Hicks retains the postmastership but also now claims to be a farmer.
----------
Lawrence Myers, son of Mr. and Mrs. John W. Myers of Hiseville, has graduated in Pharmacy and has been employed as a prescription clerk in the drug store of Mr. L. C. Ellis, where he will be glad to meet with his friends.
----------
From Subtle:  The box supper that was given at Moorespring on September 18 by the teacher, Mrs. Ralph Sartin, was a success, netting $30.10.  A large crowd was present, with good music, and good order prevailed.
----------
From Cyclone:  Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Mosier are the proud parents of a baby boy.-----Mr. and Mrs. Paul Branstetter are the proud parents of a baby girl.
----------

OCTOBER 15, 1931

From Tompkinsville:   There is diphtheria in the county.  A Hestand man was in town last Tuesday, having taken a seriously infected child to Glasgow for treatment.  The Monroe County Health Department urges all people in the county to bring their children to the office, to the school conferences, or to their family physicians for treatment in order to prevent the spread of this dreaded disease.  Apparently there are many cases in the county, but some counties are having a serious epidemic.
----------
Mr. Floyd Nuckols and Miss Ishie Elliott were married last Friday at the home of Rev. T. F. Grider here.  Mr. Nuckols is a son of Mr. and Mrs. S. D. (Sid) Nuckols near town, while the bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. B. (Tedler) Elliott of the Temple Hill country.  The parents of the bride were married by Bro. Grider in the first marriage ceremony he ever performed.  He also performed the ceremony for the bride’s sister, Idelle, to Mr. George Evans of this place.
----------
From Cave City.  Mr. Wilson Willis has had a well drilled for water on his lot at the corner of Duke and Railroad Streets, to furnish water for the Hotel Dixie.  ----- Mr. Sam Dickey is building a residence on Owen Street between Second and Third Streets.  It seems that Cave City is coming to the front in building.
---------
Saturday of this week Mrs. Robert H. Vaughan will open the Women’s Exchange and Gift Shop in the front of Vaughan-Warder’s store on Main Street.  This will be a market place for women, where they may place their handiwork such as needlework, cooking, quilts, or any item they may have for sale.  Mrs. Vaughan is well known throughout the county, and this exchange has long been needed by the women of this section.
----------
All streets of Glasgow are being marked, something that has been needed for many years.  The “curb” system is being used, with the street name being painted on the curb with a stencil.  The letters of white on a red background are very plain, and Ollie James Wooten shows his skill with a paint brush, as he was designated to do the work.  The City expects to renew the painting after a few months so that the names will always be plain and easy for tourists to find.

OCTOBER 22, 1931

It is reported that a bus line from Glasgow to Bowling Green will be started at an early date, with fare of $1.50 one way.  We understand the route will be by Smiths Grove in dry weather but by Cave City when the ground is wet. 
---------
The Glasgow City Council has purchased a fine, almost new chemical fire wagon for use in this city.  The old Ford chemical truck was about shot, and Bowling Green had an extra, almost new, which the Council purchased at what they call a great bargain.  In getting it, they got a much larger and newer truck than our old one and also a lot of equipment which we needed.  This conforms Glasgow to the requirement of the Actuarial Bureau and saves us many thousands of dollars in insurance.
----------
Mr. Charles P. Bailey of the Oleoak country has returned from a six-months trip through the Great Northwest and parts of Canada.  This is not so bad for an 82-year-old gentleman!
----------
Hood Drops Gun; Foot Amputated.  One foot had to be amputated after William Henry Hood dropped a shotgun from his shoulder last week.  The gun fired its charge at close range diagonally through his foot and ankle.  Mr. Hood, who lives near Jeffrey, had been hunting and was on his way home when the accident occurred.  He is the son of Mrs. Emily Hood, a widow.  Dr. Eagle Bushong performed the operation.

OCTOBER 29, 1931

Let all who can, fall in line on Friday of next week, November 6, in the motorcade to Louisville or Nashville in celebration of the completion of the Jackson Highway, U.S. 31-E.  The celebration is to be completed at Lincoln Farm near Hodgenville at 3:00 o’clock.  If you can
participate, notify Mr. E. L. Kerley. Secretary of the Chamber of Commerce.
----------
A beautiful spirit of love and generosity was shown by the pupils of Junior High, the 7th and 8th grades of Glasgow School, when they gave a surprise shower to Ersie and Erbie Pedigo, twin sons of Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Pedigo, whose home, with all its contents, burned last week.
The boys are in Grade 8-A, home room of Mrs. Oren Depp and under the leadership of Mrs. Depp and Miss Mary Jewell Farris, 8th grade teachers, and Misses Mary Parrish and Eva Farris, 7th grade teachers.  The pupils of these grades collected canned goods, bed clothes, clothing, most everything needed in a home, and then smuggled their contributions into the basement of the graded school building.  Last Tuesday afternoon the two grades marched in a body to the basement, and Ersie and Erbie were greatly astonished when they found that the entire vast collection was meant for them.
