The new Christian church will be dedicated this Sunday, Feb. 13th. The new building is the most beautiful and capacious church structure in the county and is well supplied in all the modern needs of the church.
Marion High defeated Elmdale High in a double header on the home court last Friday. The girls won 51 to 5, completely outclassing Elmdale in every phase of the game; while the boys won 33 to 13 in a rough and poorly contested game.

Children’s movies are gaining in favor. And it’s a good move for the movies. The motoy, which is the motion toy or toys actually doing the acting, sets the small children wild with delight. It combines motoy films, fairy tales, history, and other educational films and the children enjoy it much, as well as learn much.
The Conyers sale of registered Durocs at the Rink Wednesday afternoon was very successful. About forty-five went under the hammer in this sale, bringing, we understand, an average of 67.50 which was considerably better than was expected under the present economic conditions.
