The Jonquil City of the South
Typical springtime scene in the garden l' of Mrs. Parker R ice on King .and Church Streets in Smyrna. Such gardens,c~rpeted in jonquils, and the profusion of the.. yellow flowers that grow everywhere throughout Smyrna, have gained for the little city the title, "Jonquil City of the South." The flowers are at their best from very early spring into late April. Mrs. R ice's garden, in which there are from 12 to 15 varieties, is shown as it looked in early Ma,rch.

Any citizen of Smyrna, ITThe Jonquil City of the South~' in at-

tempting to summarize tre city's phenominal growth for the past

year will be inclined to boasting for haven't we been awed by it

ourselves? But who, after perusing this book , wi 11 blame if we

preen as a peacock be fore his mate? We Smyrnans are human but we

, have tried to keep our pride in line with honesty in presenting

to you the real facts of our city today.

Because we have built 180 residences , a number of business

houses , and because our population has increased by 3500 since last October, we vrnuld not have you think we are a <m-. -ushroom' town .

Smyrna has been here a long time though its name has changed three

times. Fir st it was Varner I s Stat ion. Then with the coming of

the railroad in 1842 it beca,me Luff's Siding . But the name that

has stuck was borrowed fro1c,. the 1:ethodists who in the late 1830 's


established a 100-acre camp ground which they narre d Smyrna for

one of the Apostle Paul ' s Asiatic churches mentioned in the Book

of Revelations.

Our first settlers came by the covered wagon route with only

the Indian trails for roads in the early 1800 1 s. They built wool-

en and grist mills, tanneries and lumber plants and the center of

the community that became Smyrna was three miles out the Concord

~ oad at the site of the old covered bridge. But following the

destruction of the Civil "Tar the center of the community moved to
tre railroad and. the first school building a century old is still

in use as the Jrason ic Hall.

The brush arbor of the Smyrna Camp Ground stood about the site

of the D. C. Landers residence, at Church and Concord roads. Though

established by the Hethodists, the camp grounds in those days became

the social as we 11 as the religious center and was shared alike by

al 1 denominations. Like their Pilgrim fathers, these pioneer re si-

dents first thought was to set up a place to worship God and th

give thanks for deliverance from other hazzards than the hostile

Indian. They came from the north to escape the rigors of the cold

winters, and from the south to escape the mosquitoes which carried

the deadly malarial fevers.

The fir st church tvas built by the Methodists of logs daubed

with mud. It vlas burned by Sherman's torch happy army .on Hovem-

be r 12, 1864. This church, according to history, had a low gallery

for slaves. In turn came the Baptists and the Presbyterians often

holding ser vie es in one common meetine place until each could build

a house of worship. Today there are six 'Nl1ite and two Hegro church-

es. They are three Baptists, one each Presbyterian, TJethodist and

Assembly of God. The Negro churches are Baptist and 1~ethodist.

Smyrna is now the second 1.8 rgest city in Cobb County, and, sit-

uated as it is between J1arietta, the county seat with a population

of 25,000, and Georgia's capital city, Atlanta, with a population

of a half million, is accessible from three of the busiest traf-

fic arteries in the state as well as by railroad and bus. Its

1100 feet above sea.level continues to give it one of the finest

of year round climates.

Two and a half miles from the Georgia Division of Lockheed

Aircraft Corporation, on Highway 41, which currently employs

people, andDobbins Air Force Base, Smyrna is preeminent-
ly a city of homes.




~------llliiia----~-----------------1 The Aircraft Plant wrtlch is the largest in the world under one

roof is turning out the A and H bomb-carrying B-47 jet bomber and

is presently tooling for the new C-130-A jet cargo plane which

promises to revolutionize freight transportation.

The city derived its title, "The Jonquil City of the South~'

from a chance remark to a local club woman, who, while attend-

ing a meeting in Toronto, Canada, was asked by a delegate, "What

is that little city north of Atlanta that has so many bea.utiful

yellow flowers?" These blooms may still be seen in proftisi on in

the spring, but rrany have been destroyed in the grading for ex-

pansion. The title has been given official recognition and today

a number of businesses here use it, and the Bank of Smyrna shmvs

the pretty flowers on its checks, letterheads and other documents.

Smyrna has no large industries but a number of small ones in-

cluding a cheese factory, large dairy, three lumber plants, two

cabinet ~anufacturing plants, and much chicken and egg production.

Included in the business district is a bank, three drug stores,

three heating and plumbing businesses, several electrical appli-

ance and TV deaiers, a refrigeration store with service, two

super markets, two flower and gift shops, four beauty emporiums.

There are several gas stations with service a.nd accessories,

an auto accessory and allied merchandise, a five and ten, three

restaurants, picture theater, two self-service laundries, two

cleaning establishments, two taxi companies, several realty and

insurance agencies, a bakery, two department stores, a dress shop,

a weekly newspaper and several contracting companies.
, rI
Smyrna's schools and churches are the source of great pride

in the community and are being pressed to the limit to keep pace

with the growth. Each of tm churches have built additions or

! i

have bluep:bints for new construction. There are three elementary

.. ____



and one of the new consolidated high schools. This latter, built last year to accomodate 450 students is now completing an addition of eight class rooms with two rest rooms and a boiler room. One of the new elementary schools was out grown before it was completed and three additional rooms are now nearing completion to take care of the overflow.
All the new school buildings, both Negro and white, are of the most modern fireproof construction and are fitted out with the most modern facilities for present day education. The high school is prepared to teach manual and fine arts having its own band and direc tor, science, commerce, with a fine library, lunch room, and athletic program and lighted field with concrete stadium, and an up to date homemaking de:i,rtment. Those additions by the churches are quite as modern.
Among the city's busy_civic organizations are the Chamber of Commerce, the American Legion and Auxiliary housed in a handsome home to which has just been completed a $30,000 annex doubling its capacity; Helm's Lodge P. & A. M. and Eastern Star also having their own home with plans for expansion; a Parent-Teacher Association in each school; a Pre-school Parents Asso., which promotes one of the city's two kindergartens; the Woman's Club and the Junior Woman's Club who have owned their own home for a number of years and also houses the 3,000 volumn library; the Lions and Kiwanis and Smyrna :Men's Clubs; the W. C. T. U., and five active garden clubs, Bo;i and Girl Scout troops and an Explorer Post sponsored by civic organizations and each owning a scout hut. There is a Comr.1unity Choral Club and a Little Theater Group whm contribute top entertainment.

The city, incorporated in 1872 operates under the city charter

form of government with a mayor and five-rrsn council. The present

administration is committed to a city manager form of government and zoning the city for the selection of councilmen. The cityI has

paved streets vl'hich are well marked, an adequate water system and

postal deli very service. A bond election is set for November to

raise 5~279,000 for a recreation park with a modern swimming pool,

club house and bath houses, and a sewage disposal plant which will be

t he city's third.

Smyrna has a small Negro population whose corrJnunity, Davenport

Town, lies just outside the city limits. A splendid. new elementary

school opened its doors last year. There are plans for using the

old school building for a community center. Their streets are

paved, they have water and gas and a new development adjoining the

school grounds has added thirty new residences this year.

for the mayor and council to carry

to their legislative tasks.

$12,500 In Paving
Here This Summer
From Bond Issue
The City of Smyrna h as had $1 2,500 worth of paving this sum-
?1er with the county doing the
Job, Commissioner J ohn Heck announced today.
u: P at Mell !Road from S. 41 to
South Cobb Drive has been paved at a oost of $5,500 and King Spring Road -from Concord Road have been paved at a cost totaling $7,000 he said.
Heck e:x;plained that next year the paving program, backed b; the recent $1,000,000 road bond issue will get in full swing. He added that "we didn't get started this year until mid-July and in spite of the late start, $57,000 worth df paving has been done throughout the country."
1 He stated that by the end of next Spring he hoped to have some paving completed in every district in the county.
<Smyrna District was allotted $65,000 of the bond funds for road improvements.
iNeaflby Vinings will benefit in the amount of $25,000 for paving that will be done in that district within the next two years.
The county h as the most modern equipment ,available with whioh to do the extensive paving j.ob, Heck said. The county owns a new 4,000 gallon mobile asphalt tank which provides three fillings for the new asphalt distributor.
He said that a big saving would be made in the paving program due to the fact that many of the Cobb County roads have already been repaired and shaped up with the idea of eventually paving them, ,and added that the paving could lbe more quickly done and money saved, when the roads were already prepared for paving.

The bonds will necessitate a 3-mill tax increase. For the average small home owner with a $3,000 assessment, the annual increase would amount to $9.00.
The two projects will be voted on separately. The date of the bond election will be set at the City Council meeting Monday. Presumably it will be held sometime in the lattei; part of Novem-
ber. The over-all sewage expansion
program also includes plans for sewage for an additional 60 to l_OO units in the old section of the city not now served in the South Atlanta, Stephens, King, Mars.ton and , Hawthorn Streets section. Yarbrough estimated this projtct would probably be completed at a cost of some $50,000, the funds to come from revenue certificates.

Smyrna Pl~ns
for Six Wards,
New Councilman
SMYRNA, July 15-A special City Council committee meeting i1Crc Tuesday night laid the groundwork for dividing this city into wards.
Milo Smith, City-County Planning Engineer for ~Iarietta and Cobb County, met with the committee, under the chairmanship of
ICouncilman John Collier. The group worked out a plan whereby Smyrna would be divided
lmto six wards. A councilman would
come from each ward, with one councilman from the city at large.
The original circle of the city, under the plan discussed Tue,day night, would .be split into four segments. Two subdivisions annexed to the city would make up the fifth and si.:th wards.
Officials said last night's meetmg was a planning meeting only, and that details must be worked out before the system can be put into effect.

SMYRl~A .E.LErv ~ TArlY s_;Ht.,uL

vhilaren, teachers auu patrons of the Smyrna Elementary
School are very proud of the improvements which have been made here with in the past six or eight months.

Our builaings have been completely rennovzted; new wiring
and fixtures have been installed in many rooms, there -by improvir!g our lighting; the walls have been attractively refinished; bulletin boards, cabinets and tables have been adaect, all of which help to make uur rooms attractive and give adaed incentive for aoing a good job.

The staff is made up of twenty-three adequately prepared,
hard-worAing, conscientious teachers , plus a most efficient principal, and three well-qualified special instructors in music, band anu dancing. These people are very much interested in st:ein6 that Sm} rna boys and girls receive the most thorough instructi un anu tra.i.ninl oi' which they are capable.


The old cafeteria has been torn away, and a new 0ne has been built in the basement of the former hi~h sc r1ool bui.J,..ding.

'l'nis is much more comfortable ana convenient, and when the

car.opy is placect over the new cement wa.Lh.way between the two

builaings, oboay wil~ need to gt:: t wet during the .rainy

weatner which probably lies ahead.

The school library has been aecentralized, anct in its

stead, each ruom is builaing.its own library with the books on

hana as a ncleus. New books will be auaed from year to year,

as we~l as maps, globes, clna other desired equipment.


.11. school Safety Patrol has been organized with two teachersponsers . About twenty-fiv~ boys from the .si.x:th. 1and seventh grades are serving as patrolmen around the builaings and grounds,
on the busses, and at various post s throughout th~ city. Only those boys who have proved dependable, both in scholarship and citizenship, are eligible for auty .

Plans are being formulatea for further improvements. vii th the help of the P. 'I'. A. , ana other ci vie organizations we hope in the near future to acquire other equipment which is badly neeaed .

desks were added until now all are

of the modem design. The stair-

ways have been boxed in, making

for both better utilization of the

hall space and eliminating another fire h.tzatd.

There was organized during the year the Kiwanis Club of Smyrna, which has been quite successful in adding constantly to its membership.
The Smyrna Georgia Chamber of Commerce, Inc., has constantly and consistently cooperated with the citizens and business interests of the cormnunity in their efforts to improve local conditions, and in every way possible has given its enthusiastic support to the merchants and others, all of whom take a very keen interest in advancing living standards and increasing trade opportunities in the Smyrna area .
The Chamber, as one of its many operations, has an active Industrial Development Committee which is conducting an intensive campaign aimed at attracting additional industrial establishments to the area, with a view of increasing the number of local payrolls and providing nearby employment opportunities for young people reaching employment ages.
Another activity of the Chamber, which newcomers say they very nmch appreciate, is the sending to them, shortly after their arrival, of welcoming letters and questionnaires (copies herewith), soliciting information and suggestions as to how, in their opinions, the Chamber, the city, and the citizens 'and business people of the Smyrna area may be of greater assistance.
More and more, t oo , the Smyrna Chamber of Commerce, is being besieged with an ever increasing number of requests for information and assistance which it strives earnestly to satisfy.

New Industry Sta rted
This Week In Smyrna
Smyrna's newest industry gets underway this week with the production in the Jonquil City of Sani-Garb concrete refuse bins by a company headed by Mrs. Ruth Carter Vannerman, president; Mrs. Earle Carter Smith, ex- ecutive vice president and John Bradfield, secretary-treasurer and general mana<ger.
The new business will be housed in a three story building now under construction- on a , lot adjoining Bradfield Elct'ric Company on Atlanta Street.
Production of the new SaniGarb refuse bins is underway, Mrs. Vanneman said today. They are the finest automatic above ground garbage and refuse bins made, she said. They have been praised as the finest scientific achievement in sanitation enginee~ing.
The 500 pound steel re-iniorced concrete receptacles automatically assure freedom from odors (due to the exclusive "thermio Action control), insect pests, animals etc.
There are no springs, pulleys, ropes or wei!gh ts to become rusty or out of order for Sani~arbs are really automatic. When the door to
Ione is opened, out comes the rug-
ged, heavy gauge 20"'.a gallon container with tight-fitting lid, waist high for the convenience of the user. When the door is released, the Sani-Gary closes - automatically, and stays closed, thanks to Sani-Garb's exclusive locking de/ vice.
I Health Departments of many communities have recommended the Sani-Garb as a definite means of combatting polio.
Sani-Garbs may be secured in single or multiple units.

The Smyrna Hethodist Church first came into being in 1838

with the establishmerit of the Smyrna Camp Ground, which, ac-

cording to history, became one of the best known in the state.

Camp grcunds in those days were the center of both social and


religious life and was used by all denominations though set up by the trethodists.
The Smyrna Camp Ground was situated in the Concord - Church

l '

street area the arbor being on the site of the D. C. Landers residence. The grounds cor.1prised about 100 acres which were




given by pioneer residents Asbury Hargrove, Pinkney Randall, Hardy Pace and !:artin Ruff ,



The first church building was erected of logs chinked with

mud near the site of th... e 1!asonic Hall with a seating capacity
of more than a .lmndred with a low gallery for slaves whose

names appeared on the hhurch register as John Doe, property

of J-:r. Blank Doe . The slaves followed the whites to the com-

The church and the academy next door (Masonic Hall) were

used during 1861 as Brown 's Officers Training Ca.r.1p and later

as a hospital by both Confederate~and N~rthern troops. It

vjas burned by Sherman's army on Uovembe r 12, 1864. The me m-

bers then set up another brush arbor on the camp ground which

they used until the late 1860's when a more pretentious frame

building was erected near Atlanta Qtreet. This building has

been moved to face on Atlanta street and is being used today

for apart men ts.

The church and the academy next door (Irasonic Hall} were used during 1861 as Brown's Officers Training Car.ip and later as a hospital by both Confederate~and N~rthern troops. It vias burned by Sherman's army on Uovembe r 12, 1864. The me mbers then set up another brush arbor on the camp ground which they used until the late 1860's when a more pretentious frame building was erected near Atlanta ~trc-et. This building has been moved to face on Atlanta street and is being used today for apartments.

A bell was purchased for that building from the First Methodist Church of Atlanta for $150 and is still in use in the present brick structure at the corner of Church and Atlanta Streets. The pre sent building, though started in 1911, was not dedicated
until 1920 with Dr. :&,ranklin n. Parker , of Emory University,
preaching the dedicatory sermon. The present brick parsonage was built in 1923. In 1940 a new educational annex was added and in 1948 the Pearce Matthews Chapel was built to house the 1Jen 's Bible Class .
An outstanding feature of the church is its stained glass windows given as memorials to loved one passed to their reward. Of special beauty is the front window depicting Christ with the
lost lamb which is lighted nightly by an automatic clock and
which has caused the church to be called 11 The Church iii th the Lighted Window ~
An electric organ was bought by the women of the church. The entire sane tuary has been newly decorated and a new rug laid. During the past rummer a cooling system was added by the use of attic fan and ventilators. The building has been redecorated as has also the parsonage. During the year the church has bought a large lot on part of which is a duplex house. The vacant lot has been cherted and used as a parking lot. Plans are under way for building a church school plant in the near future.
The present educational annex is used continuously for public meetings, dinners , Scout meetings and ci vie get-toge the rs as well as for a projection room for the church's handsome new movie machine. A new silver service was given the church the

past year in memoriam by several families each piece being engraved with that information.
A youth worker and choir director was employed this year tre former also acting as part-time church secretary. There is a nursery for small children for the morning worship service with a paid attendant. The church has grown until it now enrolls 700 members and is fast becoming a city church.

/"i Legion Has Helped
jCampbell High Band
With Two Gifts
Some time ago, the Smyrna American Legion, Post No. 160, took as one of their projects raising funds to be used in purchasing band instruments. This project was successful and the Legion presented the school with a check in the amount of $2,100. Band instruments were bought immediately. The Legion watched very closely the .progress of the band and noted tl'-eir support had been ' proven to be more than worthwhile and that the band was doing , a fine job.
i Realizing the very fine support
which can be given a school, in : 1 athletics, in patriotic meetings, in
parades and just in everyday . school life, by the band of the school, the Legion made the big announcement at a :recent meeting . that the school could now purchase band uniforms.
I Commander Max Parnell informed Mr. Griffin, principal of the Campbell High School, that the Smyrna American Legion Post
No. 160 would underwrite the purchase of these uniforms up ot
I$3,000.00. We hope this fine organ- . ization will be one of the first
to see Campbell High School band
Iperform -in- full regalia.-- - - -

He stated that there are several hundred dollars in pledges still outstanding and requested that everyone who had promised a contribution and had not paid it to do so as the money is needed to
pay the contractors. The playing field will be lighted

A helluva, helluva, helluva, helluva, hell of an engineer.

Oh! I wish I had a barrel of rum, And sugar three thousand pounds,
A college bell to put it in, And a clapper to stir it 1round.

Vanderbilt Takes Plun_ge at Last

Into 'Moderation' Football With. Guepe

Vanderbilt has joined starry-eyed Tulane in a gal-

lant effort to play football in a major league...with a limited

iquad and the venture will be watched with interest by

the npt-so-innocent bystanders and with some apprehen-

1:ion by Vanderbilt alumni.


Long dissatisfied with the' modern trend toward big business

ln football, the Vanderbilt athletic board, predomimntly faculty in:

rnakeup, h b_ren restless.. It has talked of kicking over the traces

ever since wartime, but went' aiong with

Red Sandets and then with Bill Edwards

no more than half-heartedly.

Even the return to t/ie old sJbstitu-

tion rule and outlawing the two-platoon

style of play did not satisfy them. Side-

liners believed the new rules \Vould put

Vanderbilt back in contention again, but

the athletic board was not convinced.

It Is not beyond reason to-be"

lieve that the 46-0 defeat by Tennes

see in the final gam~ crystallized

their determination to call for a new

deal and Bill Edwards' resi~nation.

Faculty men do not relish such re

verses, either.

They offered Edwarns a job in the

physical education department. which


the war horse declined with tharks and

e. pleasant statement in leaving, and 1away went Vanderbilt into the

hazardous waters o( "moderation."

Post Script-On Smyrna .Banquet: Wore Vanishing Boutonniere


\Vhcrcever Smyrnans arc gathered together of late the s1bjcct

of the recent sports banquet comd up and everyone brings oi.1t a

new thought on it. ,Some ,of the \Voman's!? members were

peeved when they saw the pictures in the 1farictt1 ournal and the
Atlant1 Journal with the head kn kcr :0-1>.~ Dodd, minus _a

boutonniere. Sure there was a boutonniere or him and \vhcre did

it get to? Then comes the Cobb Catinty Times with a picture of

the ehief-boulonnicrc and all. The mystery grows.


The new thing I learned was that the three honored Tcch-

Smyrna., men found their places-not by a name on a place card,

but by a card with thcit picture on it. Tlic other VIP present

Iouna' jonquils and their names on theirs. \Vhen Bobby Dodd and

Ed Danforth cxprcs~cd themseh-es as being grateful for a party with

women we felt that someone should tip them off on the fact

that behind eve1y club woman wo.rking for that banquet. there was' a

man carrying hii foll share of the load.

Forgotten Men Recognized

for instance there was Jake Nash shoulder to shoulder with

Veep Gladys buying up those hams and stuff for the dinncr,Anan

Morton taking a clay of his precious vacation to slice 0\er a hundred

pounds of ham not to speak of setting up tables, chaii:s ang what

have you. Claude 'Hamrick was simply the forgotten man while

IL~!a .Alice had a finger in every pie, and they do say, that Bill

Black_ literally burned up the mixer reaming out those more than

--20.D oranges for the .potato scuffle. And mind you his Leila was

off workmg on the Scout committee serving another banquet-

of all things. Daughter Elizabeth stood by ;md hc1ped, however,

till the last orange was scooped.
111en there were Jim Gentry, Ferd Brown and R. E. Dunn

buzzing all O\'er the place. like yellow jackets seeing to every small

detail. Some highlights on the distaff side: There were the top

decorators, Joe Hoilahan, Lucille McGill_is ,and Ir~ne Baugh who
must have inspired Ed Danf.orth to head his story "Jackets and

Jonquils.'.' There ~vent the dozen cute gals serving in their white

organdy aprons with jonqnils pinned on t~c , pocket supervised

by Mat~ha Quarles, and ,don't forget Evelyn and lioracc Mulkey

wl,o must have burned the m}dnight oil putting out those more
than 200 wryite and gold folders' with the. '.fcch pennant at the

top. One would have to be yery discerning to know they were hand- so nearly perfcct _werc they.


Part Of Club's Youth Program

And since the affair was part of the Club's Youth Program:

President Ilamrick had three young pag~s, Mary Knight, Becky

Nash and Barbara Monk, daughters. of members, not to speak of

the many embryo football pbycrs who were present. They kept

the three boys, Dan Theodocion, Sam Hensley and Buddy Jones,

busy autographing their program~ as well as the visitors, Dodd and


\Ve have also learned that the Georgia Club '\'Vom~n and

the N~tional Club \Voman, magazin'es, have gotten. \1d of the

banquet and arc asking for a story each. Smyrna is ~really getting

on the map.

And speaking of pictures it seems that Life Magazl,lle's photo-

grapher has been camped in our fair city for somef ots of one
of our youthful financiers. I have no idea when they R n to break

the story, but at least we arc giving you a rattlesnake's warning.

It would seem from an announcement from the City Ha11

that Smyrna is really growing up; becoming a ,real cit . he hams
there are from 8 to 5 six days a week, acco(Jing to Helen Bald-

win, city clerk, which means one can pay bills or otherwise trans-

act business on Saturday afternoon. Mayo.r Guye Duncan say!

they arc going to enlarge the room where Council meets so they

can in\'ite the p~1blic to come up and sec- us 'sometime.

And speaking of Smyrna getting on th/map, her daffodils arc

also giving her a plug up in the cold north states of Vermont,' New

York and Conncctic1it this week where i\lrs. \Yilliam Creighton

was air mailing them to friends as a Valentine token. She has got-

ten them before ' from 1 lrs. Parker Rice, who raises them for the

market, and says they stand the trip wonderfully and are pretty

for days after arrival. If you have not seen Mrs. Rice's garden at the

. comer of Church and Concord near the First Baptist Church, it will be worth your time to go. ,

Favorite Color

To gi\c some jdc:i first or i 10 ; . " Christmas Cott:1gc" look s sans

decor it must be noted that Evclvn ~lulkcvs favorite color i,, red and

tl1c theme is expressed in varying ~y;1ys thro~ghou f th e 110u~c C\CCpt th e

b~d room . The large living room ,den and d,ining room are all pin e

P1ncl,::d, the I. r. rug is red :1s arc two satin d:i mask and a romplctcly

lar,r lounge chair is a lovely china blue.


'J'!1c li\-ing room is dominated by th e g ran d pia no, music b ein g the

real life of both EYclyn and Homcc ;\lulkcy. And there too is th e player aqc!"Jibrary of albums the size of which denotes opera and th e chm ics.

The picture~ h ere and in t~ c den were d one b y a friend and co-worker, I~\in Suddtth. One is a reproduction of a Currier. a nd h es snow scene

-fitting'.pcrfc:ctly Christmas Cottagc-t!.ie other two in th e linng room
arc colorful Ann Hathaway cottage type oils. Over the mantle and fonn mg the perfect background for ,Laura Alice Hamrick's prizewinning holl)
i'ec! and ca11dlc armn~cment ,ns_ the antique gold fmmc-d mirror.
N<:>w for the liring room decor that mantle arr.mgement was of
two kinds of holly, the slick leaf Bnrfordi and the older l\'Oods type \11th

1 an unusual amount of red berries. Out of th is every artistic arranging

rose t\\'o red candles in two lengths whil e just in front center were four

tin r red ;m<l white choir boy candles.

Nativity Scene

Ruth l\IcCrary arranged a Nativitr scene a t on e side of the piano while at the back she placed a white jardinerc with the m ost graceful

waxed magnoli;I branches while to one side was a huge white candle. Elizapcth Lovejo} constructed a miniature cathc~ral showing a

proces~ion of choir boys of paper and plastic in a setting of holly where one could almost soc the snow falling on t,hc small console table.
,v. Ruth l\IcCrary and " Bowen," as Mrs. C. is called by her friends,
did much with little i11 the attractive -den . On the desk there was an
open Bible with a red satin book mark opened at the Christmas story. Just behind it was a short thick red candle and a bunch of Burford holh 'r,1tl1 pcrriCli in what looked like a silvered dish and holder, b~t of all

things, they told us the holly was stuck in an irish potato-to keep it fresh, of course.

Hand Blockoo Linen

1 The furnishings in the den are of light wood with a red div:an and
Ired leather chairs. TI1e drapes arc. hand blocked linen with a biege ground
~ with rc<l lbirds and small floral patterns in each block. On the book case was an arrangement of pine with the cones, red candles and silYcr balls The two pictures here arc the cardinals ,,ith red mat and the parakeets

with green .mat. TI1e p<,>lishcd frames were made by the hosts themselves.

The lace covered table and light painted furniture dominated the diniug room arranged by Lena May Green and Madge Duncan. 'nie table was set in rubr glass with a rubr ,bowl to\\" and the end filled with the two varieties of holly and nandina berries. Two three branched sil-

ver candelabra held red tapers. The buffet held a similar arrangement with pine and th'c candlcholders were clear crystal and ruby glass. A
similar arrangt;mcut graced the china ca-binct arid sen-ing table.

The lo~cly yello:v and pink bedroom required little of ?\fary Lou

McGowan who settled for a lovely little miniature bowl filled with gaily colored balls and a tiny lad carrying an umbrella under his arm and a basket of red berries on his back rising out of the center.

It is truly surprising what these girls can do when they set thcm-
sehcs to it. Others 'prese nt were [ eodcllc Jolley, :\lama Ida ,Vildberger,

Smyrna Honors A Queen

Smyrna, long known for its beautiful ladies, tomorrow wel- ' comes to town one of its most beautiful daughters.
The City of Smyrna, the Charnb,er of Commq:-cc and just
about every organization in town, will join in rolling out the royal
carpet for Miss Lucia Hutchinson, who now pcr,l1aps is better known as "Miss Georgia."

The folks who are in charge of arrangements for the reception

and welcome have worked hard and they're planning to pull out all

stops for ::r celebration that will long be remembered in Smyrna.

Later this Fa11 Miss Huthinson will pit her beauty, talent and

nbilities against hundreds of others from every state in the Union

in the "Miss An~erica" contest in Atlantic City.

\Vith the hospitality for which they arc famous, the Smymans

will welcome her home and wish their beauty queen well in the

national contest.

\Vc're' glad they're honoring this pretty young lady and we

too, join in hoping that her title will shortly be changed from

"Miss Georgia" to "l'vliss America."

Smyrna Girl
Scouts Planning
Little House
SMYRNA - A representative group of Smyrna women, leaders of the Junior and Senior , Woman's Clubs who sponsor the . Girl Scout program in Smyrna, have called a mass meeting of all parents in the Smyrna area to meet with the Girl Scout leaders Tuesday night at 8 o'clock, at the American Legion Home for the purpose of discussing the erection of a Girl Scout Little House.
The Smyrna Girl Scout's have in hand $1,000 as a nucleus for the erection of a center for their activities. This money is the result of hard work by both the scouts and their sponsors who have sold cookies, waste paper, and in various other ways. The time has come when the leaders feel that such a place must be provided at the earliest possible time.
Present at the called meeting will be state and district leaders who will have an architect and a lawyer who is familiar 'with the necessary procedure in going ahead ith plans for building, according to Mrs. Carl Edge, member of the county board and troop organizer.
Mrs.. Edge stresses that !,!Very-: one is invited to attend the meeting and that telephone committees will contact just as many as have phones- or are
j ava1lable.

SMYRNA is the metropolis o! SOUl'H COBB COUNTY GEORGIA. It is also the cantor 1
of the fastest gz:owing aection in that area of the State. The population of the
f:~ffRNA area aa thi~ pamphlet goes to press (July 1953), presently estimated at 'bo-
tweon 5,0.00 and 6,000, ie. im:reasing. at .ari average rate of 250 people each month, Ot' j,000 per:sone annually. During every two months or' the year SMYRNA grows as faa-r. as it previously did during .tho entire. ten-year period-.' from i'940 to 1950, according to figuro13 _furnished by the United states Bureau of .tho Census. At the present :roto c! i::rowth (and all sig'ns point to.the likelihood of its continuance for a long time tc come), SMYRNA, by the end of 1953, is expected to bo part and parcel of a thrivinc, ambitious community of 100,000 red-bloodec .American cit izeris, ea:ch one st riving_ in a practical, oooperat ive manner, to "do his 'bit" toward making the SMYRNA anc! SOtTrH COBB COUN_TY area of . Georgia as flourishing, healthy and attractive a oornmunity as i9 likoly to be found anywhere . within ''the Dnpire stat-e ,-of tho 1 South." :,
You say, or course, ''!'here must xbe areason for this - phenomenal rate or growth." Wall , there 1B. Conveniently situated, as they are, bet ween Atlanta and Marietta, Georgia, SMYRNA and SOlJrH COBB COUNTY appeal to folks as being fine communities in which to reside and do business for a great variety of reasons in addition to ease of acceesibil ity _to ~t her nearby places Somo of the reasons given by rece?t new-

Residence in SMYRNA and SOUI'H COBB COUNTY, Georgia, means living at an approx-

im'lt e elevation of slightly over 1,000 feet above sea level in a state which is

e. i.:ltate which is almost as large as all of the New England ~ates put together; n

The climate of tho SMYRNA and SOUI'H COBB COUNTY area ie ideal throughout the
y43ar. The atmosphere ie of low relative hunidity and is not subject to undue t em-
:plrat ure extremes other than for insignificantly brief periods on very rare occa..
e.ions. Snow, when seen at all in SMYRNA or in the sourH COBB'COUNTY' area, is so
em~ll in amount and:' remains on the ground for such ahorl intervals as to 'l::e pre.ct i-
cally negligible and relatively unimporl ant. Any deviations from this fairly well
established pattern are so rare as to constitute very unusual ciroumstanoes.

Within a radius of approximately seven miles from t Hb heart of SMYRNA are to
be found mercantile, professional and industrial establishments covering practically the entire field :of business activity. Types, of businesses operating wi.thin
that specified ar.ea include such lines as the following:

Growth of supporting small indust rioe within the Smyrna area would out freight coat a on many airplane part a now bought by Lockheed in tho East, Midwest and other distant points. In addition to such dollar savings, trans:f:li t3me between the sup. flior and the aircraft plant 'e assembly lino would bo reduced, thus speeding product ion.
It is indicated that a large group of rolat ively small producers feeding com-
ponent a of tho B-47 stratojet and tho c-130 military transport into the local

Lockhood plant from tho Smyrna area would tend to give stability and permanence to tho pla?It and, in addition, croato dozons of now induetrios.
Official roport s of progress toward permanent oporat ion of tho local Lockhood plant emphasize two favorablo factors -- that Georgia workerB havo provod thomsolvoe
roo.dily adapt ablo to using machine t oole and becoming skilled in tho proc is ion work
that is nocoesarily required in the manu.tacturo of airplanoa and othor rolatod products.

Nevertheless, tho eamo author:ity strosees that Lockhoed'e plane call !6r gotting tho production oost of airplanos mado at tho local plant below that of their competitors, a factor, it is pointed out, tho.t is considered vital to tho security of tho opornt ion,.
If, therefore, you aro soaking a sito in tho southeastern United states, in an aroa where everything is fa~ble for initial factory construct ion or plant expansion -- an area wheroin pre.ct cal, money-making opport unit ioe on a big scale are
