Fort Gibson Independent (Newspaper) - April 21, 1938, Fort Gibson, Oklahoma Oldest Town In Oklahoma - Home of the Old Stockade - On Highway 62 Quaint but Interesting --~-------"There'i No Other Place On Earth Like It" _--� _. 20.000 READERS EACH MONTH Fort Gibson Independent " HERB SHALL THE PRESS THE PEOPLE'S BIGHTS MAINTAIN, UN A WED BY GRAFTERS OR CORRUPT BY GAIN " MUSKOGEE COUNTY'S GREATEST WEEKLY VOLUME XIII FORT GIBSON, MUSKOGEE COUNTY, OKLAHOMA, THURSDAY, APRIL 21. 1938 NO. 48 As I See It- By John A. Woods We spoke of several doing repair work last week. Well, they are a t it again this week. Hugh McLoud is having a new front put in at his barber shop, Mr. Brodie is painting the front of his s t o r e, Mr. Allison is still doing repair work in his store and having water installed, Mr. Mack Palmer has new awnings at the Corner Drug and Mr. Bynum has h i s plumbing completed and is having the upper story of his building made into apartments. TAHLEQUAH CENTENNIAL The churches were well attended Easter with record attendance in all Fort Gibson churches and good programs given. Attending church only at Easter time may in a small way atone for the whole year but those of you who do this, just remember that if no one took an interest in the churches except at this season there would be n o church for you to attend when Eastejr Sunday did come. Neighbors are something to be appreciated...Mr.A.L. Rogers brought home our setting hen and then gave us a setting of fine White Rock eggs to go with her. I aotice in the Tulsa World where G. W. Bowm�n,of Palisade, Colo suggeated in a letter to Govene^&mmons that army bombing plane be used t o drop bombs on tornados and thus releasing the vaecum dissipating the storms power. This seems possible altho would be something like the mic8 tieing the bell on the cat. School Events For Remainder Of Year Friday, April 29th. Junior Senior Play, "A Henpecked Hero".
