August 2nd is the date set by the local VFW for the second in a series of seasonal dances, the last of which was received with much enthusiasm by the people who attended.
The Dance Committee has promised an even more glamorous affair than before. Over 150 rolls of crepe paper have been used so far in an attempt to make the high school gym look like a ballroom, and the effect is beautiful.
Gus Crickard and his Orchestra will furnish music for the affair, which will feature four moonlight dances in which the light will be altered to fit the mood.
Unfortunately, no spectators will be permitted in the balcony, as is the general rule, due to the fact that the gymnasium is covered by a canopy of crepe paper which makes observation from that point impossible.
Floyd Marshall Mayes, aged 52 years, of Cass, died Thursday, July 18, 1946… He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Cassie Mayes and their six sons Stanley, Eugene, Guy, Raymond, Olen and Robert.
