communities. We do not know wliat
its combined population is, but do
know that it embraces three beautiful
homes and well tilled farms, those of
Adolphus and Bartow Walker am
Steve Potts- We understand that Mack
Maddox and R. D. Lackey are just
outside of the corporate limits, how
ever. their well kept homes and Idled
farms make them eligible for citizen
ship within if they so desire.

popular teachers in the Eatonton pub

anxiously awaiting his return. Mr. At
kinson is publisher of the Rockdale

plant in Conyers, upon which last

boys up there are glad to have him.
Messrs. Jack August, manager of
Keely company and Joe Tuggle of At

been friends right on —in fact we vot

Hon. Jno. N. Holder
Hon. Jno. N- Holder, accompanied
by his wife from Jefferson, Ga., spent
last Friday in Conyers, guests of their
daughter and family, Mr. and Mrs.
M L. Moliley. Jr., at Milstead.
Regardless of what our governor
thinks of Mr. Hplder. personally, or
otherwise. Rockdale county is under
lasting obligations to him. He is the
only outside ’’big" man that has ever
befriended us —the only one that has
ever manifested an interest in us, and
one of our very few leading men of
the state that knows where Rockdale
county is or cares where it is.
Rockdale county is small, but that
is no excuse for us acting little- The
least we could have done, would have
been a public expression of apprecia
tion for the splendid highway across
the county, a wonderful gift at the
hands of Mr. Holder, not a dime of
our money or credit involved, making
it possilde for us to enjoy a little' rec
reational riding of real joy. But so
far as we know, not a single' individ
ual, to say nothing of a representative
group of citizens, have ever conveyed
to.Mr- Holder our gratitude for what
he so graciously did for us by paving
our road. Now, it behooves everybody,
even our best friend. Io lie grateful
and its an ugly friend or community
without appreciation Some people ev
en take for granted that the world
owes them a living and think that
the best therein is none too good for
them—unfortunately, that has been
our attitude for a number of years in
many ways and things, individually
and collectively, concerning local and
The fight between Gov. Hardman
and Mr- Holder tis only the customary
scrap of two near neighbors. They
happen to live in the same county. We
may argue that Mr. Holder spent the
state’s money , when he paved our
road, which is true, but certainly he
did not have to-spend it in Rockdale
for a number of years yet according
to allotment, and rotation. Our road
did not cost as much as some roads
and it will not last a thousand years,
but it keeps us out of the mud and
enables us to ride in comfort while
it does last and while we last.
ft would be appropriate for our
board of commissioners to publicly
thank Mr. Holder for it. It will be
mean and ugly of them not to.

AVe wish some of our parents would
visit us and see our work.
One of the most important questions
among members of the ninth grade for

been class meetings with heated dis
cussions on both sides of the question
We are glad to welcome one new
member to t lie Sophomore class, but
regret that two have dropped from
our midst. All of us have gone to work
in dead earnest, resolved to make this
the very best year in our strivings for
Senior Class News
In addition to the regular class
work which is progressing nicely, the
Seniors have been trying to develop
their financial talents and salesman
ship ability. II has been a custom for
the senior class to leave some substan
tial gift each year to their Alma Ma

ward that end- They wish to thank
all those who subscribed to “The Sat
urday Evening Post,” “The Hidiek’
Home Journal,” or “The Country Gen

proceeds will be used by hte class. A
good sum was realized by these sales.
