(ARK.) OOtTRim THURSDAY, JUNE II, OSCEOLA NEWS &y fatly* St Louis George's First Impression Of Osceola Was Long-Lasting One ' Krst Impressions, they fay, are Ulting Impressions. The lirst Impression Louis George got of Osceola was back in 1918 when he moved to Osceola with his parents from Birmingham. Ala. Louis was eight yearn old the day he stepped off the train. That was the winter people in this section are still talking about »na that winter was the first snow that this eight-year-old boy had ever seen. "That was the prettiest sight 1 ever saw In my life and I forgot the minute I landed in Osceola about my little friends back in Birmingham. I really thought my parents had brought me to fairy land. I really lived in a make believe world. I loved Osccola from that very first day and 1 wlU always feel that w'ay I'm cure." These words were spoken with all iincerlty in the world. Growing up in Osceola for Loull was no different than it was for all the other kids in town. When he was nine, he Joined the Boy Scouts, under the leadership of Scout master Steve Ralph as had all the other nine-year-olds In Osceola. His parents went through good times asT| Tell as depressions, the same as all other families In town had done. He went through high school, attended Mississippi A. and M. College and atong came the big bank failures. Louts had to give up his coHege career as did hoys all over the country. "THAT WAS the year the Red Crow was feeding so many who hadn't a penny in the world and no way of getting any. Up to that time Red Cross was Just something I had read about or heard about, they reall ysave da lot of hmi- Mo* and ttw eh«K*M« in OxwoU. tnd each membw hat a job to do for all th« youngsters to the community. "The biggest part of w," "MOST or US," added Mr. George,' "are Dads and you know we are still young enough to look baclc a few years and see things Osceola needed for all of the kids, BO we are doing all In our power to give them the things we did not have. One of the things w« are all kwfclng forward lo is the completion of Andrew Florida park and especially the new pool. I believe another summer will make Osceola recreation-minded to the 'nth' degree," declared Mr. George. "The back-bone of our Club is our efficient secretary, Palmer Stanton. Our club is full of many big boosters for Osceola. Dr. L. D. Massey can't be left out when it comes to getting intcrtainment. Two weeks ago, he brought the tar- heel humorist, Edmund Harding, lo Osceola for Ladies night and we entertained 225 guests for a good dinner and an excellent evening of laughs. " 'Doc' Dean of Blytheville always helps us out on our ^annual minstrels and without him we'd have a struggle getting the performers together. • • • MR.
