Letter: Maury likes the matching cups and dyes

Maury E Lewis writes:
I love that the cups, except for the blue in the front, are the colors of the dye that is in them.

My mom would use food color and vinegar and hot wter to dye our eggs with, in the '40s and the '50s. No Paas tablets. --Maury

Remarkable Memories--Bible Verses Memorized

By Mike Watson

Adair and Russell County Sunday School students memorized Bible verses in early 1922. One must wonder if they were able to recite these throughout their lifetimes. I would hazard they could.
Denmark Sunday School Wins

The American Sunday School Union offered a pennant to the school in Mr. Alvin Rosson's territory that would memorize the most Bible verses during the first quarter of this year [1922]. There were 22,000 verses memorized during the quarter.

Denmark Union Sunday School won the banner, memorizing 5,448 verses, and Fairview Union Sunday School came third in the contest with 3,044 verses. Mr. Rosson also offered a prize to the to the child who would memorize the most Bible verses during the quarter.

Miss Pauline Collins, of Denmark school, won the prize by memorizing 2, 004 verses. She is only eleven years of age. Can you beat it? We think not. Miss Zula Kimbler's son, of Fairview school, came third with 1,100 verses. This was also good.--Russell County Advance

April 11, 1978, Around Adair

This column originally appeared in the April 11, 1978 edition of the Daily Statesman. A lot has changed in 40 years, but quite a bit remains the same, from an April Community Clean-up to an emphasis on planting trees. I only vaguely remember the dogwood tree drive, but the internet says that a dogwood can live for 80 years, so I'll bet some of the trees they planted back in 1978 are still around town. If anyone knows for sure, please let us know, or send a picture. --Pen

Around Adair with Ed Waggener: Clean-up set next week
By Ed Waggener

We'll have more complete details on it next week, but the whole county is supposed to be mobilized sometime during the week of April 17 for a clean-up campaign.

Judge Brock and Mayor Downey are going to put all of their forces on the clean-up, Superintendent Al Sullivan is joining the effort, and the various civic and service clubs are being asked to help.

Whether or not the spring clean-up works, of course, will be determined by the efforts individual citizens make. I personally feel that, this year, more than ever, the public wants a super-clean Adair County.

Arline Young put it best. She said, "I don't want to see the community clean. I want to see it squeaky clean."
