SATURDAY, MAY 15,1948 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS These were the days of the Ol' Covered Wagon, when vast stretches of fertile farming lands and rich mining country lured tha pioneers across our western plains. Packed in these lumbering vehicles were camping materials, stores of food and medicines, clothing and tools and weapons. Ah, weapons! For hostile Indians lurked on every hand These were the rugged people who settled our West, and bore the torch of civilization across plain and mountain to the shores of the Pacific. But the covered wagons carried something besides the pioneers and their material belongings westward. They carried the faith of a great people, and they planted it in every village and settlement. Faith is the foundation on which the West was built as the East had been built before it. Faith in God and the right, in people and work and prayer. This is the true source of a nation's greatness. Every church spire pointing heavenward blazens the secret of our country's strength. •^^^^^^-^^^^^^^^ can surv iv(1 ^h V' do «°cr ac v ' "''"'oul a T/ii* series of advertisements is being published each week in the Courier News by the following busmen eatablithmenti: ARKANSAS ICE & STORAGE MISSISSIPPI CO LUiMBER SWIFT AND CO.
