Jim: Glad he was not hanging around here in 1918
I woulda been in a lot - nay, a passel; perhaps, even, a gob! - of trouble had I been hanging around 'Lumbia in May, 1918:
County Judge W.S. Sinclair informed the News last Thursday night that he was going to enforce the vagrant act, and that he intended to have every man, white or black, in the town of Columbia, who does not work as much as thirty-six hours in each week, brought before him, and if they could not show just cause for idleness they would be dealt with according to the law.Researched by "Jim."
