From The Courier, Apr. 23, 1936
Cliffside, April 20 — Hello, Friends. We are back, or rather there is just one doing the writing tonight. The other twin has work to do. Bravo Sue. If the column is a little off you will know the reason why. Our motto is, “Carry On.”
We want to thank each and every one who co-operates with us. We appreciate all the news given us, for we want this Column to be as much yours as it is ours. Just because our writing is crazy is no reason why we can’t get sensible news form somewhere else. The news came to us that our Column was being cut out and pasted in scrap books. It pleases us if you like our news and we thank you. And to make it more interesting, we would like to get all the news you have, folks.
The Juniors of the Cliffside High school will give a play, “The Wild Flowers of the Hills.” Thursday night, April 23 at the school building. An admission of 10c and 15c will be charged.
