Mr. Brannan Meet Mr. Burwcll Quizr Show Editor The Star: During the period o; 1911 and 1021 I made my home at Hope, and after leaving there and until January of this year I have maintained a very close contact through the state papers and periodical visits with Hope and South Arkansas. I have been here (Mattoon, III.) since January. Sunday I went to the post office and, much to my surprise and delight, spread r ;out on the desk in front of the section whore my post office box is, 'was the Hope Star dated Friday, September 17. I read a portion of it rapidly, then looked in every direction and under the desk to bo certain the owner was not looking, and sneaked this paper under my coat and carried it out to the car where Mrs. Brannan was, and she sat on it until we got home to be sure no one would claim. Wo have read it from one end to the other. Now wo would like to know the name and address of the subscriber in Mattoon, HI.. Black or white, under the Truman plan, we arc rendy to call on them. Just pick out anybody around there, including Ed McCorkle, who was a charter member of the Rotary club with me, and give them my best regards. There are many others there whom we number among our close friends. GEORGE BRANNAN Sept. 20, 1948 Box 395 Mattoon, 111..
