The Southern Democrat, February 12, 1937

Out on the Mountain

The rainy weekend held its disappointments; however, Sunday School and Epworth League were observed. The Epworth League topic, “Lost Gems of the American Life,” was very interesting and well discussed.

The Fellowship Tea, which was observed last Tuesday night, together with an interesting program, was very helpful and enjoyable.

The 25th million Ford has just been built

It has never occurred before in automobile history that 25 million cars of one make, bearing one name, have been manufactured under one management.

The 25th million Ford car rolled off the Ford Rouge Plant production line on Jan. 18, 1937.

That’s 25 million cars since 1903, more than one-third of all the cars ever built. That’s enough cars to transport the entire population of the United States.

Cobb Sisters present evening of singing, dancing, acrobatics

The PTA of the Oneonta Grammar School are sponsoring the appearance of the famous Cobb Sisters (Kill-Kare-Kwins) of Birmingham who will give an appearance at the Blount County High School in Oneonta.

The sisters are noted throughout this section for the type of entertainment they give the public. Their program consists of singing, dancing, comic skits, dialect readings, and acrobatics. They promise an evening replete with fun.

Most everyone of Oneonta and nearby will want to see and hear these accomplished girls and the evening will be much enjoyed.

Housewives buy peanut butter in quantities

Alert housewives, since the first of the year, have been laying in several months’ supply of peanut butter, apparently in order to escape advancing prices.

The market for peanuts has been on the upswing for several months, and there is no indication that this trend will change very soon.

The peanut crop during the past year was two million pounds short of the crop of 1935. Although the largest of record, the 1935 crop was completely used up before the beginning of the 1936 season.
