Methodist Church Building Is Blown From Foundation In the wind storm that visited the Lignite City at an early hour Tuesday evening, the Methodist church building, whose steeple has towered above the East end o f Mitcham Street for many ,ears, was torn apart and twisted about into a shapeless heap, and it is very doubtful that it can ever be used without being com- pletely torn down and rebuilt. The wind from all appearan- ces, struck the towering steeple from the north-west, carrying the structure about four feet to the south and clear of its'founda- tion. When finally settling back to the ground, one side was left considerably higher than t h e other, with the result that the floor, ceiling and the walls are all twisted out of shape, The class room and pastor's study 1o cared off the hall in the front of the building are separated from the auditorium by huge cracks in the walls. Some are of the opinion that the structure can be straighten- ed to a usablecondttion, but on account of the huge size of the building and its towering heighth it is generally believed that the church will have to be torn down and completely rebuilt. Corsicana Woman Takes Blame For Auto Wreck Mrs, Frank King of Cormcana assumed all of the blame for an auto crash at the Terry Street-- Highway crossing, late Monday afternoon and agreed to pay the cost of all damages that resulted. Mrs King and her daughter, at the time of the wreck, were traveling west on the highway in their Buick sedan and on ap. proaching the Terry Street cross- ing, a touring car, driven by D. L. Cantrell, and in which his wife and baby were riding, dart- ed out in front of them, The Buick crashed into .the side of the lighter car and carried it around in a for a dis- tance of about seventy-five feet. The Cantrell baby was thrown out of the car as it swerved, but examination later at the office of Dr. D. B Owen, revealed no se- rious injury. Both Mr. and Mrs. Cantrell were also considerably shaken up and their car was al- most a complete wreck. The other car suffered only slight damages and its occupants were uninjured. i| Autos Crash On Highway Crossing Two auto drivers narrowly es- caped serious injury late Thurs- day evening when their machines crashed at the Highway inter. section at Terry Street. One of the cars, a Ford coach, belonging to N. C. Vandagriff and driven by Jas. Mac Dodson, was travel- ing north on Terry Street. and the other, _a Chevrolet coach, driven by Gilbert Bradley of Ma- bank, was going West on the highway. Neither of the drivers were in- jured, butboth ears were con- siderably damaged. It is under- stood that both parties accepted their share of the blame and Tent Over Mills' Skating Rink is Blown To Ground The Mill's Roller Rink suffered considerable damage Tuesday evening when the tent was blown down in the wind storm. The gale, which also wrecked the Methodist Church and caused other damage over t h e city, struck the tent about 8:30 o'clock [and spread it out, together with its three large mast poles, flat upon the ground. Mr. Mills said that just a short time before the fatal blow, the house was crowded with specta- tors waiting to see the Wheel Barrow race that had been sched uled for that evening. Although it requires a very strong wind to dislodge the tent, Mr. Mills said that he became uneasy and ad- vised the patrons to leave the rink before the condition became worse He said that h e had managed to clear the skating floor just about 10 minutes be- fore the tent went down, other. wise, he said, some one might have been seriously injured. The tent was ripped and torn in sev. eral places, but it was not diffi- cult to repair. Aside from the wrecking of the church and the skating rink, the heavy winds wrought considera- ble other minor damages over city. 51ill's Roller Rink To liars Tacky Party An advertisement appears in this issue of the News announc- ing a "Tacky Party" to be spon- sored by the management of the Mill's Roller Rink here on next Tuesday evening, May 2nd. The party is being given for the gen- eral public with no advance in the regular skating prices. Spec- tators will be admitted free. Mr. Mills, owner of the rink, states that occasions of this na- ture are frequently sponsored at his rink, and that they have" al- ways been thoroughly enjoyed, not only by the skaters them- selves, but by the audience as well. He says that in order for the skaters to obtain the most fun and entertainment out of the party, it is necessary for them to dress for the occasion. However to skate on this night it is not compulsory to be dressed in tacky attire. At the conclusion of the party prizes will be awarded, one to the tackiest boy, one to the tack- iest girl and another to the tack- iest couple. R i n k employees will be barred in the awarding the prizes Read the advertise- ment elsewhere in this paper an- nouncing the party. each agreed to repair his own car.
