I need some mfornlation on Juanita McNcmar Meyer for my 1935 ~ear- book project and thought you might be able to help A~, you know. Juanita graduated in 1935 and I believe stayed for a semes- ter in 1936 to take advantage o[ com- mercial course work g~ven in the evening by Miss Beals. 1 understand she later went to Washington. D.C. forcareerwork and married Mr Meyer late in life. If you can give mc any other details regarding her career and also her date of death it would be much appreciated. Also I need the date of death ut Roy Smith who graduated from BHS in 1935. I believe he was the son of Okey Smith who lived near the upper >wing- ing bridge at Stringtown. If you could give me the name of someone to call regarding that intk)rmation I would appreciate it. One last request---Mildred Jack- son graduated from BHS in 1035.

It is always great to get together with cous- ins and other fanlily and frielldb. A house burned down {or is 2t burned "'up'"?) in gurnsville last week. It was the highest house in to~ n. I think. The topmost house on tile hilt above the bank and Go Mart. (And above the new place that I hear is going to be a Gino's Pizza place - oh. how I wish it were Tudor's Biscuit World. instead! That would get a lot of business from around here We already HAVE a good pizza place! Don't need another one!) My morn and her family used to live in that house. Her dad's parents lived in the house up the hill from where t live now. They did not have telephones in those days. so if they needed something, they would hang out a ~,heet or something and the c-lor of the fabric indicated what was needed.

Buncy Marple told us in her col- umn last week about the Memories-of-Falls-Mill Picnic that w'as to beheld July 26 & 27 at Falls Mill.
