Two of them are Korean war orphans. Some of the others are orphans, too. And some are children whose natural parents were unable or unwilling to care for them. Goodwin is a hard working trucker. His job keeps him away from home much of the time. He own truck on various jobs such as hauling vegetables, hay, fruit and other commodities from coast to coast. when his mother, (who lived in California) decided she couldn't take care of him. So, she turned him over to the Goodwins. Then came Sharon, his sister, and Viola, their aunt. Viola is the oldest of the children. She's 17 now and a high school student at Byng. She was 13 when she joined the Goodwin clan. Next came the Korean children Johnny and Lindy.

Goss re- ports that test drilling has dis- covered a well that produces an estimated 20 gallons per minute. The well will be given a pump test soon, probably- tomorrow, Goss said. Goss noted that the water has been tested by the .State Health Department and found .to be of "excellent quality." A second-well provides an es- timated 12-13 gallons per minute. Six holes were drilled in t h e course of the search. Two of these, in the south part of town, produced only salt water. The rig then moved to the southeast where the two good wells were found. If the 20-gallon well holds up under pumping, Goss said, work will begin soon on installation of a pump, tower and distribution lines for Tupelo's first municipal water system. The system will be financed by a bond issue which Tupelo voters approved.
