LOCAL AND PERSONAL ACTIVITIES IN . . . By Mrs. G. E. Webb Telephone 2492 I Deferred From Last Week The Writer liked the editomal in last week's issue of the Spirit of Jefferson Advocate "No Place Like H~me". Those who didn',t read it should do so. I,t is surely "food for thought'" for those who think they must go many miles away from home to enjoy a vacation. Mr. and Mrs. Lester We~b spent ~vIonday in Towson, Md., Mrs. Jes sie Cleggett of To~vson, had spe~nt ~he previous week at their home viatting the formers mother Mrs. O. A. Webb.

Tourists ConHnue Tourists are continuing to come ~o Harpers Ferry in unbelievable numbers. We are wondering what the situation will be like in Oct. wi,th Railroad excursio~us coming in every day during ~he Centen- real and thousands of motorists wending their' way to the twin- towns. We hope and think bh~,t ~he eating and sleeping 'accomo- d~t~ons w~ll be an~ple for tJhe moss of people e~pec~ed. Also i~ seems fitting to say in this column that there can be much improvement made in bhe appearance of this area. Civic pride should,,), make us wan,t to have our premises clean and free of weeds and bushes w~ich we are not all doing at the presen~ time. There are so many trees, bushes and weeds in some pares of our home towns t2~t one can scarcely see from o~ue house to another. We hope that many ~olks will decide bh~t they can and will improve bhis condition. Work is progressing nicety on ,the new home being built on Zer- ger Street in Bolivar by Mr. and iMrs. Edward H.
