Paper from the Old Home
Town |
By Mrs. Effie Crawford, of Indianola, |
Talk avout your literature |
And papers up-to-date, |
About tne legislature i
And doin's, through the State—
To me they ain't comparin’ |
Though 1 look the world aroun’ i
To the little newsy paper
From the old home town.
There's somethin’ brewin’ in the air
Ihe day the paper comes;
Ma she goes about her work
And either sings or hums—
But I just get so restless
Till the postman brings it down,
And I'm first to grad the paper
From the old home town.
Ma comes into the settin’ room
And lets the dishes go
And listens while I read about
The folks we used to know,
For births and deaths and land deals
And weddin’'s, too, abound—
All are mighty interestin’
From the old home town.
I know it ain't so classical
As these big dailies are,
That tell about the prize fights
And latest movie star,
But jist for my enjoyment
There's nothin’ I have found
Like the little newsy paper
From the old home town.

Lock Haven, Pa., April 17-31
Editor of The Democratic Watchman:
Dear Sir:—I have concluded not
to break the continuity of the
| years during which the Watchman
has been a weekly Centre county
letter to my family; keeping us in
touch with kindred and friends of
our native county.
Most of those whom I know have

Of the Great Unguessed.”
but the younger generations still
interest me and my immediate fam-
ily, so just substitute my name for
that of father's —J. C. Waddle.
Respectfully yours
The Watchman has been going in-
| to the home of “Uncle Jimmy” Wad-
|dle since long before the writer was
| assigned his first job here and that
was bronzing labels that went onto
axes that were
manufactured out at “Boiling
| Springs,” later named Axe Mann.
| For several years before March 29,
1930, when “Uncle Jimmy” ventured
into the “Great Unguessed” he was
unable to read, but he wanted the
Watchman and it was read to him
| every week until the grand old man
fell into his final sleep. Then we
expected that another tie that has
bound the Watchman to the friends
of probably sixty-five or more years
|ago would be broken. Mrs. Adams’
letter assures us that it is not and

Dear George:

you that it is now just--days until

Dear Sir:
Must have the Bellefonte news and
this is the only way to get it so that
one can rely on it's being O. K.
Yours respectfully,
Kreamer flatters us a bit. However
we do try to make the Watchman as
accurate as possible in all its state-
ments of fact.

—All these soft, squashy clothes
make you think of the nursery. The
newest sweaters are short-waisted
and hand-knit like the hug-me-tights
we wore when we were babies, and
some of the printed evening dresses
have little-girl puff sleevs. When
we come out of the sea in our hand-
knit maillots, we tug on jersey trous-
ers and linen sun hats like those of
the children who are building castles
in the sand.
We are putting on white dimities
for supper and setting them off with
the chic, incongruous glitter of ruby
and diamond clips. Milk is com-
peting with tails, and erudite
botanical terms are replacing the ar-
got of the town. r gardening
clothes are blue linen overalls, French
workman's blouses, and mammoth
cotton gloves. We are fanatics about
| simplicity and ruthless to preten-
| tiousness, The oniy convention we are
bound to is that of the bridge-
making Culbertsons. This is a sum-
mer of simpler pleasures, simpler
clothes, and bodies made more beauti-
ful with exercise, We are reviving |
| the rural freedom of Early America— |
‘and it fits in very well with our
| modern paganism. The fashion, mark
| our words, is to do exactly as you
| please.
