L. Argo an opportunity to gather some rich friendships and treasured memories of a life well spent. One of the best known characters in Manila, she Ls familiar to almost every person who lives in this vicinity. Tn fact, "Josie," as she is called by her friends, is the holder of some sort of record for consistent service. During the 32 years in which she has served the needs of thousands of patrons who came here to trade the store has changed ownership three or four times. Mrs Argos ability, her shrewd knowledge of human . nature and her knack of handling people made her such a valuable employe that none of the owners ever considered doing without her On August 26. 1909 E.'Tiger and Ike Levins envisioned a bumper crop for that Fall an d they looked about for a clerk to serve the town of Manila with the products from Tjger-Levine store Company the biggest .store Island. on Big Lake ti<j. Mrs. Josephine Argo took charge of the women's department. She knew the needs of the average housewife, knew everybody around Manila and she could "wrap packages neatly and quickly. In n very short time she had earned an enviable reputation for herself in this community and had so aptly- proven her value as a clerk that when the two men sold their .store to Julius Levine and Joe Abel in 1914 they unhesitatingly recommended H* young clerk. So she began clerkine for a new establishment but with the same si.oro in the same location. The store remained under the .management of Julius Levine and Joe Abel until 1925 when William and Max Borowsky purchased the Tiecr-Levine Store Company. And Mrs. Art>o was hired to clerk for the new owners. She has been working for them ever since. According to Mrs. Argo she hasn't missed a day unless illness prevented her working. Mrs. Argo was born November ind Mrs. Joe Whitchorn until .she was 10 years of age and they moved to Huntington, Tenn. It was at this time that young Josephine Whitehorn "hired out" to work in a store owned and operated bv a Joe Williams, whose keen understanding of sales ability enabled l nm to single out this young girl ™d give her valuable lessons in merchandising. Mrs. Argo said: "I 'rive Joe Williams credit for everything; I ever learned In salesmanship and I owe him very much for the measure of success I have cn- .joyed." mories experienced by Bob Brown's wife who came in the store one morn- in? just as a big .sale was about to close. The store was giving away a car with a lucky ticket to be drawn about, 3 p.m. Thirty minutes before drawing time Mrs Argo .said, Mr. and Mrs. Brown came in to • buy a pair of underwear. Mrs. Brown remarked. "This ticket will win the car!" When the drawing was held that was the winning ticket'. In 1910 Mrs. Are;o and her husband had an opportunity to purchase a lot and house here in vr°w"ir lnc Wh !f 1ch1orn workcd for Man » a - sho went to her employer Mr. Williams until she was 19 years nnri a.vk*ri for a definite old when she married I. L. Argo. They moved to Manila in 1906 and Mr. Ar?o did a flourishing trade for a few years with the draying business. He also served the community as marshal and was elected as mayor for one or two terms. They have two .sons. Odoli Argo of Wynne, Ark., and Euska Argo of Manila. 29. 1882 in Ken ton, Tenn. She Mrs. Argo .said .she had never lived there with her parents, Mr. | seen such a stroke of luck as that answer n,s to how long she would be employed, that she and Mr. Areo wanted to buy a home here "By all means, buy it! As Ion?'as I am in business you can work for me!" Ike Levlne told Mrs. Ar?o and they purchased the home where they now live. Mrs. Argo says. "31 years in our own home; 32 years with the same job, same store, same location. What more could one &.sk?"

Clear Railroads The government had ordered the suspension for nn indefinite period so the railroads would be free for military movements. Army authorities in the Zagreb district of Croatia requisitioned all private motor cars for army use. The Italian consular scarf at Zagreb left hastily for Rome. Belgrade had another blackout last night. King Peter's mobilization decree published for the tirst time today' read: "We.
