NATIONAL EDITORIAL Thursday, July 27, 1961 BONANZA DAYS The ever-progressive Charles Town and Ranson mer- chants are planning big things for week-end of August 3, 4 and 5, and we conmaend their efforts to your attention. We hope our readers will be mindful of the advertisements in our August 3rd issue ;there will be various and assorted "bargains" for local shoppers. But, more important, it will be demonstrated to this community that the average shop- per can satisfy all his wants and needs right in this com- munity without resorting to the inconvenience of going to the large metropolitan areas. It is hardly necessary for us to repeat again and again the various advantages that accrue from shopping at home. The tax structure that supports our schools and other segments of local government is dependent upon the eco- n Inic health of our community. The persons who support age or 1,000 tons of grass. Mr. and Mrs. Daniel D. Roder- ick and two children Angela and Drew of Westminister, Md. spent several days last week with his mother Mrs. Elmer E. Roderick.

Harrowing Experience Henry Clipp had a very harrow- ing experience Sunday evening while wading in the river. Step- ping off a ledge under the water he was swept along in an extreme- ly strong current. Although a good swimmer it was a struggle for him for a short while to cope with the situation. The local M. Y. F. members held their picnic Sunday after- noon in the Jefferson County Me mortal Park. There were 28 pres ent who enjoyed the occasion.

MID -SUMMER TURKEY SALE our churches, our parks, our civic clubs and organizations cannot as ably do so unless the local people support them their business endeavors. Virtually every local purchase comes indirectly, a contribution of a sort to the future t :p rmsmU ity: n effect material and substantial savings going out of town cannot be too harshly condemneda the instances of this are largely illusory. Most items merchandise sold here command no higher price than the price commanded elsewhere. And when one considers the expense attendant to going elsewhere plus the detriment to the welfare of our local merchants . . . and hence the community . . one is forced to conclude that the advan- tage is with shopping at home.
