Unveiling of Memorial Tablet
Dedicated to the Memory
of World War Patriots
Who Made the Su-
At Wellsville on Decoration Day there will be dedicated a Montgomery County Soldiers Memorial Tablet, honoring the patriotic boy who made the supreme sacrifice during the World War. There is not a neighborhood but what has some family that lost a son or brother during the great conflict. His name is graven in the imperishable bronze of the tablet, a print of which will soon be placed in the postoffice in each town in the county.
The Committee in charge extends an invitation to all to be present at the unveiling of the tablet, a tribute to our hero dead.
Mr. and Mrs. Linley I. Thomas are rejoicing over the arrival in their home of a twelve pound baby son born May 22, 1930. Mother and babe doing nicely.
For Fish Fans.
Missouri's 1930 fishing season opens officially Decoration Day when all fish found in waters of Missouri may be angled for legally. The season on bass, crappie and jack salmon hsa been closed since April 1, and from June 1 until July 15 the season on channel catfish is closed.
... a small section may be missing from the scanned paper ...
And right here is a good time to call our game warden's
attention to the fact that this section has, like other sections, a few "boot-leg" fishermen who each season take a sneaking advantage of the law and the real lovers of the sport, by hand-fishing, mostly at night time, destroy channel catfish by hundreds. Cuivre River is nearly depleted of this once plentiful game fish.
Missouri has 510 fishing streams with a total length of 15,000 miles and in addition, there are 168 lakes in the state with an area of more than 28,500 acres which offer fishing advantages.
The large mouth bass, crappie, catfish and seunfish are to be found in all sections of the state. The pike or Jack salmon, is found in many Ozark
steams and in some Central Missouri streams which are tributaries to the Missouri river and in Northeast Missouri streams that flow into the Mississippi River.
The small mouth bass, and rock bass or goggle-eye, and trout are found in the Ozark region.
State fishing licenses are necessary for those who would go outside their own immediate community to try their luck at this great out-door sport. Non-residents must possess either the regular non-resident season license or the fifteen day trip permit.
Game wardens are insistent that fishermen have their licenses in possession and have already arrested scores of anglers who had failed to take out permits. Recently sixteen non-resident fishermen were arrested in one county in Northeast Missouri and fines meted out to these men were far in excess of the price they would have paid for the proper licenses.

Miss Agnes Hamlett
Mr. Blaine McCoy
announce their marriage, which was solemnized by Rev. W. G. Mitchell, in the parlors of the manse, at Bowling Green, on Saturday, May 17, 1930.
At home to their friends at pretty farm home of the McCoys on West Prairie.
This young couple is too well and favorably known throughout this section to need any introduction or
bouquets now. We join with the whole countryside in best wishes.
Announcement is just made of the marriage of Miss La Von Gooch of Middletown, Mo., to Mr. Elliott Harold Ward of Grand Junction, Colo., on Sunday, February 23, 1930. At home after June 1st, at 316 Ute Avenue, Junction City.
The bride is the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. O. T. Gooch of near this place and is a lovable lady of many virtues.
We do not know the groom, but congratulate him, and think he is alright or that a sensible little wife of his would not have married him.
Chips joins with many friends of the bride here, where she was born and reared, in wishing them abundance of the good things and a long, happy life.
Miss Flossie McCarty of Buell, was married to Mr. Ted Stansberry of near Middletown, Saturday, May 17, 1930. The young couple will be at home on the Stansberry farm west of Middletown to their friends.
The groom is next to youngest son of Mrs. Louise Stansberry, and one of the most industrious and promising young farmers of this section. Chips' congratulations and best wishes.
The Chips household thanks Mrs. W. H. Graham for a chicken dinner for two that wouldn't have been but for her generosity in giving us a "broiler" from her fine Locust Hill flock. Nobody need try to convince the ole man that W. Leghorn broilers are not equal to any as a table bird.
