HOSIERY MEL IS DISCUSSED Large Plant of The East Hunting l ocation. Plus Submitted and Discussed By Interested Citizens Mr. R- H. Wdotten, who is at the head of the Chamber of Com merce, called several of Milledge- vjfefs citizens together Monday morning, at the office -»f Mr. J. E. Kidd, to meet Mr. Robert Edmond, Industrial Representative of the Georgia Power Co., .and Mr. S. Bach elor, of F. S. Bachelor & Co., Inc., Real Estate and Industrial Financing Firm Mr. Wootten then submitted let ters ho had received, which set forth the fact that a large hosiery concern of the East was hunting a location in the South for a large plant to be valued at $3,750,000 dollars, with an annual payroll of $150,000, and the conditins upon wfcich this plant naming the amount of local capital could he secured for Milledgeville, which would have to be invested. Dr. J. E. Kidd, who is deeply inter ested in aiding in securing the loca tion of manufacturing plants in the city, gave the visitors the informa tion fo what it was desired to do to interest the people here in the move ment. und stated that there were sev eral desirable sites available, and told of the advantages offered by the city. Messrs. Bachelor and Edmond discussed the matter freely and open ly as to how the local stock might be financed, and promised every assist ance in carrying out plans which were formulated. There will be other information to submit to the public at an early date, which should arouse interest and en thusiasm in the city. There is one thing our people should realize, and that is an oppor tunity is knocking at our door, and that the location of a manufactur ing plant here of the proportions proposed would mean a great increase in the value of taxable property, *a large payroll, and an addition of many citizens. That the only oppor tunity the city now has to take a forward step is to secure manufactur ing enterprises. There is one fact certain and that is th* manufacturing concerns of the East and North are turning towards the South, and that a new* era is dav ning for this section. If one plart could be secured it can be safely counted that others would fol low.

C. auditorium under the auspices of the American Legion. The cast in strictly local and the play is one of the snapple** musical comedies yet given. The section of the show takes place in a fashion shop in New York City, where Mary is a model. She is in love with Jimmie, who is seeking his fortune so that they may be mar ried. Billie, the florwalker, is in love with Peggy, the green little country girl, but his financial condi tion is preventing their marriage.

John Yarbrough, .affectionately known to ull of every creed faith—proti and catholic and jew nnd gentile, alike,—as "brother John,” in his ap propriate address and remurks dedi cating the American Legion War Me morial here on the Georgia Military College campus, hos again emphasiz ed to us his brotherly love and uni versal friendship and has made itj again apparent that hit* continued presence is essent ' to the welfare and growth of the spiritual life of our city and community; and, Whereas, it has become known that the Conference of his Denomination will meet at an early date and assign ments for churches will be made and we of all denominatinos desire that the authorities of his church have for consideration the attitude of every one of Baldwin county toward him: BE IT RESOLVED that, we the people of Milledgeville and Baldwin county, and our friends, in mass meet ing assembled do petition the METH ODIST CHURCH AUTHORITIES, to Mrs. Lucy Vinson Williams, widow of the late Mr. W. P. Williams, peace fully und quietly posed away early Thursday evening, November 8th. Mrs. Williams had reached the ripe old age of eighty-four years, and her long life was one of usefulness and nervicc in every relationship. She was a member of one of Geor gia's pioneer families, her parents being Mr. Ebcnwr Vinson, and Mrs. Martha Dickson Vinson. She was born in Hancock county September 19th, 1844, and came to Baldwin county with her parents when she was ten yeras of age. Her girlhood days were spent in a home noted for its Southern hospitality, and where the nobler and higher sentiments of womanhood were taught and lived. These ideals became u pa-t of her life, and developed in a murked de gree. In early womanhood she married Mr. W. P. Williams, who had just a few years before returned from the war in which he hnd served in the Confederate army bravely and hero ically. They commenced life togeth er in the dayo when fortitude, sacri fice and undaunted spiri*.« were de manded. She was a helpful and sympathetic wife, and made her home one of love and devotion to her chil dren. Mr. Williams preecedcd her to the grave several years ago. She exemplified the virtues of kindness, sympathy and helpfulness, which made hre life a Messing to all who came under its influence. Mrs. Williams was u member of the Methodist church, and her faith in the Christian religion never falter ed. She is survived by one son, Mr. Dixon Williams of this city and one daughter, Mrs. Fannie Given, of Mi ami, Fla., Mrs. Given was unable to attend the funeral nnd burial of her mother, on account of illness. She is also .survived by several grand-chil dren, and Mr. E. S. Vinson, of this city is the only living brother. The good that she has done will live after her to bless her memory. The funeral services were held at- the Methodist church Saturday morn ing by Rev. John F. Yarbrough in the j presence of a number of relatives and friends. The remain.* were buri ed on the family square in the city cemetery, the pull-bearers being Messrs. Otto M. Conn, Carl Vinson, E. R. Hines, J. E. Kidd, W. L. Ritchie and R. B. Moore.

Armistice Day, ten years ago the most horrible conflict of all time had ended, and those men who had serv ed in that conflict had gathered to gether again, this time to pay their respect and to dedicate to the love and memory of those men who did not come back, but sleep on Flanders Field.

Let the guiding spirit that led those men to great deeds of heroism that Democracy might live, find place in the youth of Georgia that they may carry on for so great a cause. The Legion Memorial, a handsome tile wall and beautiful stucco gate, rises as a triumph of noble effort and hard work and is a lasting memorial to the men who gave their all for a cause worth while.
