Searcy Daily Citizen, Tuesday, August 5, 1941

We are very much in need of some rain around here at the present. Everything is getting dry.

The revival meeting began here Sunday morning. A good crowd was out Sunday and Sunday night. Bro. William Flint brought the messages. Bro. Howerton, our pastor, also Bro. McConnell of Searcy will assist in our meeting.

Arthur Liles carried a bus load to Booneville Sunday to see Lucille Liles. Also Shirley Nipper and Morris Harrison, who are patients at the state sanitortium. Mrs. Morris Harrison, who was discharged some time ago, went back to be with her husband and also to begin work.  Mrs. Dora Woods of Beebe went to see her brother, Willie Joe Akidge, who is also a patient at the sanitorium. All were feeling fine.
