Snead folks work on mill plans

The prospects for a sorghum syrup mill for the Snead Community are looking brighter. The sponsors hope to have it going this year, but the plans may not be completed by planting time. About 40 farmers have attended two meetings on the project and about 25 are interested in growing the sorghum.

At a meeting at the school Wednesday, the growers voted to organize the Snead Sorghum Growers Association. The following officers were elected: Dean Pruett, president; Elton Blackwood, vice president; and Verlon Osborn, secretary-treasurer.

Judge Wallace will speak here Saturday

Judge George C. Wallace, candidate for governor, is expected to speak here at the courthouse Saturday morning, March 3, at 10:30.

Accompanying Wallace will be Grand Ole Opry Star Carl Smith. Second-time gubernatorial candidate, Wallace will also speak Saturday at Cullman at 2:00; Arab at 3:30; Rainsville at 7:30.

Stamp machine is placed in P.O.

Postmaster Cyrus Kitchens calls the attention of the public to a stamp dispenser newly-installed within the post office. Located by the mail slots where the package shoot formerly was, the dispenser is a convenience for both the public, who can now get stamps when the windows are closed, and for the post office employees, who are busy handling the mail.

Unlike most dispensers, the one in use gives both stamps and correct change to customers.
