We made mistakes, we learned more than you will ever know and we hope we m ade some friends in the past month. We’ve had comments on the paper, both favorable and not so favorable. We appreciate all of them. We are attempting to improve as we go along and it is through your help that we can do so. We wish to say a special thank you to the ones of you who have supported the paper with ads. It is only through your help that we are able to survive. Each week'we hope that we can encourage more people to shop at home. One interesting thing found in the files of The Butler Herald - Mr. Charles Benns Sr. was pleading with the people of the county to trade at home some 35 years ago. At that time the big competition was mail order houses but with transportation so improved, we think nothing of taking a shopping trip to Macon or Atlanta in an after noon. The business establishments in Macon, Columbus, etc. are not helping your community to improve. They are not aiding your schools, churches, civic projects or paper. When you can get the same price at home, let’s stay at home andshopwith those people who advertise in your local paper, who help to pay for your swimming pools, band uniforms, or who donate to your civic club. * * * Funeral Services For H.C. Walker Horace Clyde Walker, Butler resident, died at the Montgo mery Hospital on Wednesday morning. Mr. Walker had been in declining health for several years but was ill only for a short time. Funeral services were held at the Bethel Primitive Bap tist Church near Butler on Thursday at 4 p. m. with the Rev. E. H. Dunn officiating. He was assisted by the Rev. Z. L. Perdue.

A retired mer chant and farmer, he was a veteran of World War I and a member of the American Le gion- Survivors include: his wife, Mrs. Leila Williams Walker; two sisters, Mrs. Eli Peterman and Mrs. Henry Peacock; one brother, Murray Walker; sev eral nieces and nephews.

A new garbage disposal truck has been purchased by the city for garbage collections throughout town. Through the clean up campaign and the aid of the Boy Scouts, garbage cans are being standardized through out the town and trash cans have been painted. The garbage truck and the street sweeper both painted white and very sanitary look ing should give Reynolds a real ‘uptown’ look and make visitors take notice that the people are proud of their town. * * * Snooping around Butler, I found that something new has been added there too. At least new management has taken over the established Dean Hotel. Mrs. L. R. Dean, owner and operator, assisted by Mrs. H. H. Gee, has sold out to Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Bone. Mr. and Mrs. Bone moved into the hotel from the Cross Roads Community and will continue to operate the hotel. Jimmy Bone is also doing a renovating job at the Dean Theatre. A new look is noticed as you walk in the door and new speakers aid in better sound reception. Jimmy will only operate four days week for the next few months with school beginning. These new projects along with a new garbage truck in Butler, new paving in both towns, the housing project in Reynolds, harvesting of good crops throughout the county with the gins in full swing as cotton pops open, show that Taylor County is progressing. How far we progress is left up to each citi zen. W e must work together, cooperate with our neighbors and pull together as a county to continue the progress begun. Schools bells rang again yes terday moning for the beginning of another year. Please drive carefully when in the vicinity of our schools - protect our children I They protect our future I Final Rites Held For 6. H.
