GO TO CHURCH SUNDAY | -- VIT S IN .. ] LOCAL AND PERSONAL ACTI By Mrs. G. E. Webb Telephone 2492 Mr. W. W. Argabrite of Blacks- burg, Va. was a recent visitor at the home of his cousin Miss Char lotte of Harpers Ferry. Mrs. William Harris is spend- ing this week with her daughter and family Mrs. It. I. Phillips in Mountain Falls, Va. Heavy Snow Fall More snow has fallen in this area to date then for many years and the weather has been very cold. About 12 inches of snow fell on Thursday and Thursday night and much of the last heavy snow was still on the ground. Mothers March Jan. 31st The Mothers March for Dimes will take place in the twin towns on Tuesday, Jan. 31st and will start in the early afternoon, so be on the lookout on that date. Mrs. Wm. Harris will be Captain of the Harpers Ferry group while Mrs. L. O. Hollis will serve in Bolivar. The writer has been un- able to get the names of the work ers to date. On last Tuesday of last week the writer found a brown and black catapillar about an inch 10ng slowly crawling on a con- crete side walk. The first thought was that winter would soon be over its worst at least. The small catapillar was brought inside and given food and a tiny home of his own to live in, but he isn't as act ire as he was on the icey cold concrete side walk. Yesterday we read a short article published in a paper in an adjoining state say ing that a catapillar bad been found alive and was slowly mov- ing around. This is really unusual during January with zero and near zero weather part of the time. We wonder. We have heard of many resi- dents of Bolivar and Harpers Fer- ry reporting a below zero temper- ature on Sunday morning. The lowest reported was 13 below in the early morning. Mrs. Virginia Orame is still a patient in Charles Town General Hospital. Mr. Joseph (Pete) Zombro con- tinues very much indisposed at his home. after a long illness, tie was a son 'of the late Joseph Padgett and Lucinda Manual Padgett of ttar- per Ferry where he was born. Ite had spent most of his adult life in the Capitol City. Survivors are a sister Mrs. V. M. Crawford of Cottage City, Md., a brother Jos- eph W. Padgett of Rocky{lie, Md. a half sister Mrs. Beatrice Edge and a half brother ttoward Pad- gett, both of Washington City. The body was brought to the lo- cal Eackles Funeral Chapel on Thursday where it remained un- til Friday afternon and his fun- eral was held from there with the Rev. Harold McClay officiating. Burial was made in Harper Cem- etery. Mrs. Anna Mauzy and Mr. Joseph Zombro of Bolivar are neice and nephew of the deceas- ed. Workers For Mothers March Workers for The Mothers Mar- ch of Dimes under the leadership of Mrs. L. 0. Hollis of Bolivar will canvass Bolivar on next Tuesday afternoon and eevning, Jan. 31st. The helpers will be Mrs. Nora Robinson, Mrs. Wanda Butts, Mrs. Harold McClay, Mrs. Alfred Collins, Misses Anne Wilt, Lau- reda Webb, Eleanor Ott and Stel la Fritts. We have not learned the names of the Harpers Ferry workers under the leadership of Mrs. Win. Harris. All political activity is banned in Nepal. France and rebels still split on means to end war.
