George Childress Grows Some Fine Corn

George Childress, who lives west of Celeste, can grow corn equal to his political record, which comes right up on the front line with the best.

He brought to this office several ears that measured 10 1/2 inches in fine developed grains of corn as can be found in these parts.

George also sold a few chickens, some eggs, and butter on his "corn show" trip.

That kind of farming is the type that brings independence whether the government aids or not. 

(August 3, 1926, The Greenville Messenger)
