David Jackson Struck By Lightning

David Jackson, of route 1, Altoona, was struck by lightning while sitting on the side of a bed in his room Monday morning and was seriously burned.

Dr. Marvin Denton who attended him says that he is badly blistered in places but he will recover. Jackson’s overalls were badly scorched but no other damage was done.

‘ Buy- It – In-Oneonta’ Program is Urged

The Southern Democrat
together with the progressive Merchants and Business Men of Oneonta are sponsoring this BUY-ITIN ONEONTA program because it is earnestly felt that every citizen will be benefitted if a rigid live-athome policy is pursued.

It is hard to estimate the enormous sums of cash money that are leaving Oneonta monthly. Suffice to further impoverish this section.

Of course it is impossible to “stop all the leaks.” But there are scores of other cracks in our economic wall; little leaks that every one of us have made and which it is now up to us to stop.
