From The Courier, July 23, 1936
Cliffside, July 20 — Hello friends. If you will open the door a little wider we will come in for our usual chat this week. Or are you bored to tears? We wouldn’t be in the least surprised if you didn’t open the door at all.
We don’t have so much to talk about this week. Now if it was election time we would have plenty to say, but we will wait until President Roosevelt is re-elected and then we’ll tell you what a good President we have, or do you already know and appreciate him more every day? We could talk all day about our President and the fine things he has done for us but we will let some of the others have their say.
Miss Weast tells you about the weather every week so we won’t interrupt. Say, that’s a good column Norman Fred Camp writes. We twins enjoy your column (Caroleen Side lights) and want to see it in print every week. In fact, there are two good writers in Caroleen and the picture that adorns the Caroleen Chatter column is something to brag about. Just wait until you see Twin Reporters’ picture and you will open your eyes and sit up and look. No, we were just kidding about the picture. Our writing is bad enough. Yeah! That’s what you think.
One-thirty is late enough for you girls and boys to stay up in Forest City. We can’t blame you though for it is hard to say good bye sometimes, ah, I mean good night.
Why is it that all twins are good looking? While we are talking about good-looking people, we wish to mention that Forest City has some r-e-a-l good looking girls. We think “Miss Bostic” would be a good title to bestow upon Miss Lillian Hamrick.
Personal nomination for the most beautiful lake—Rainbow Lake. The only thing wrong with it is that it is not close enough and is in South Carolina.
Odds and Ends: Beautiful brown and blue eyes is a weakness we can’t resist…Hawaiian music is the twin’s favorite. Guess which… Playing jack-stones is the rage in Cliffside while bike riding gets more popular every-day…Swimming is something that we would like to be a champion of…The new bridge over at Broad River is nearing completion. It is something to write home about…It is said that red headed people have a temper; what do you think?... That’s a beautiful lily pond in Front of the main office with beautiful gold fishes.
