1938 news from Billings OK by Susie Herde

Mrs. A.L. (Susie) Herde
From Cherokee Strip Museum website, 1996  , quoting parts of the Perry Daily Journal dated Thursday, July 7, 1938

"Page five contained general news and page six had a column of news from Billings, written by Mrs. A. L. Herde (telephone 919-F251). She reported that the wheat harvest there was nearly finished and that most fields made from 6 to 14 bushels per acre, although some reported 20 bushels. Mrs. Herde also announced that Mr. and Mrs. Fred Kasper had sold their grocery store to Mr. and Mrs. Mack Lewis and that the Kaspers planned to do some traveling."
