  • The Henry Byrom Literary Society meets every Tuesday night at the A.M.E. Zion Church
  • The “Baby Show” given by the Ancient Daughters of Africa recently at the K. of P.  hall was largely attended.  The two prizes were a “go cart” and a baby dining chair.  These were won by voting.  The winners were respectively Mr. & Mrs. Irvin Robinson and Mr. & Mrs. Walter Cooley.
  • The pastor of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church fills the pulpit promptly every second Sunday.
  • Mr. A.B. Bryant subscribes to the Globe this week.
  • The valentine entertainment given Thursday night of last week by the Juveniles of the K. of P. Lodge, was a very interesting affair.
