Life is a straight line be-
tween birth and death which
many people try to lengthen by
walking in circles.

Decide promptly, but never
give any reasons. Your deci-
sions may be right, but your
reasons are sure to be wrong.

[Column 4]

Again, we have so many new
library members that we wish
to dedicate this column to

The first of these new-comers
to the library is Miss Louise
Booth, who is employed in the
mill office: She is not only a
new library member, but is also
"new" in the village, since she
has been working here only a
short time. Miss Booth is a
sister of Mrs. Francis C. Gun-
ter, with whom she resides at
42 Second Street.

Mr. Henry Tinsley recently
affiliated himself with the li-
brary by becoming one of its
new members. Although Mr.
Tinsley lives at Travelers Rest,
he is one of our employees, and
works in the Preparation De-
partment. Mr. Tinsley's wife
became a member of the library
some time ago. However, she
has been sick for several weeks,
and has been unable to do
much reading. We wish for
Mrs. Tinsley a speedy recovery,
and look forward to having her
visit the library again soon.

We are always glad to wel-
come our school children as
new library members. Athalee
Christopher, one of the sixth
grade girls, recently placed her
name on the roll, and we hope
that the library will be of real
service to her throughout the
year. Athalee is the daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. James Chris-
topher of Marietta.

Still another new member is
Mavis Morgan, another one of
our school girls. She is the
daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Rufus Morgan of Route 2,
Travelers Rest. We are glad to
have Mavis, and hope that she
will visit the library as often
as possible.

Now let's talk about school
boys for awhile, and introduce

[Column 5]
Eugene Stone as our next new
member. Eugene, son of Mrs.
E. J. Stone, is a Slater resident.
He has visited the library to
secure materials for special as-
signments, and we trust that
we can continue to be of ser-
vice to him.

Robert Stone, brother of Eu-
gene, is our next new member.
He, like Eugene, came to the
community library in search of
special materials to use in con-
nection with his school work.
We are glad that these boys
thought of the library, and
hope that their visits will be

Our last new member is a
little girl who not only enroll-
ed as a library member but she
has also joined the Thursday
Afternoon Story Hour group.
She is none other than "Jackie"
Clary, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. James W. Clary of Slater.
"Jackie's" father reads exten-
sively, and we are glad to see
that both she and her brother,
Jimmy, member of Boys' Club,
have acquired Mr. Clary's taste
for reading.

To all these new members,
we say "Welcome; we are glad
to have you."

And may we add one other
word not only to the new mem-
bers, but to everyone—please
come to the library as often as
possible, and always feel free
to call on the librarian for help
regarding library materials.
She is always glad to assist.

ing these books to the library.
