Cliffside, Dec. 11 — The 22 persons mentioned in "This and That from Cliffside" last week started a sensation in Cliffside. But the story was only half told.
Checking up on the entire number who attended the Century of Progress in Chicago, this reporter finds that the following additional Cliffside citizens made the 800-mile trip and we think none have been omitted: Dr. and Mrs. J. M. Allhands, William Allhands, George Allhands, Sara Allhands, Jesse McCurry, Hoyle Hawkins, Romeo Dedmond, J. P. Hill, Shirley White, M. G. White, Gladys Kelly, Anzie Phillips, Dr. and Mrs. H. L. Robertson, Mr. and Mrs. H. C. Beatty, E. D. Prince, Roland Hamrick, Lois Price, Guy Hawkins, Mr. and Mrs. Myles Haynes, Myles Haynes, Jr., Amanda Haynes, Beth Caldwell, Alice David, Sam Haynes, Ruth Edwards, Robert Lee Shuford, Sara Shuford, Charles H. Haynes, Agnes Hawkins, Beaulah Heafner, Corrine Bookout, Paul Hawkins, Frank Hawkins, Ruth Hawkins, Mr. and Mrs. D. C. Colvin, Sara Colvin, David Colvin, Ruby Smith and Hazel Grigg.
The Spartanburg Herald on Friday of last week carried a story on Cosmopolitan Cliffside, the little city of about 1800 population. The story bore out the fact that with such a number of people, from a town of this size, attending the fair, Cliffside is accredited with a record of some sort.
Cliffside is an unusual town for its type of industry and in the weeks to come, you will likely grow to know it as Cosmopolitan Cliffside.
Looking in on the world series in Washington, D. C., representing Cliffside were: Varnell Morgan, E. D. Prince, Chester Scruggs, W. J. Laughridge and Hoyle Hawkins, shortly after the series, Spud Crawford, Sam Thompson, Clyde Edwards, W. M. Duncan and Walter Haynes made a business trip to Washington in the interest of Mr. Walter Haynes automobile business here.
George Thompson, who made a second trip to Chicago, had the very pleasant company of Helen Collins, Kings Mountain: Agnes Welch, Gastonia: Amorae Robinson, Mooresboro, and Selma Blanton, of Shelby. They swung their motor trip by Washington, D. C., from Chicago.
