Town Folk to Buy Car for Al. Herring

Town Folk to Buy Car for Al. Herring

Albert Herring is more than Chief of the Fire Department for Murphysboro, Tenn. As he describes himself, he is “Murphysboro’s Handyman.” He has found time during the twenty-four hours of each day to serve on many local charity and relief committees, projects for local betterment and practically every movement fostered by an unselfish motive.

And now the community feels that it should do something for its unselfish Chief. A dance is being held to raise funds with which to buy him an automobile for department use. Printing has been donated, and music and other things were secured gratis, so that the money received will go entirely for the purchase of Murphysboro’s gift to Chief Herring.

On August 7, Chief Herring will have rounded out thirtyfour years as head of the Fire Department.
