When two young mothers de- cide that they need a college education - if they are Sandra Davis and Marie Hinson - they do something about it. They allowed neither house= work nor baby tending to pre= vail; instead Mrs. Joe W. Davis (Sandra) and Mrs. Charles W. Hinson (Marie) shared their baby-sitting responsibilities. By skillful scheduling, they evolved an ingenious method whereby when one has class at Lurleen Wallace Junior Col- lege, the other keeps the ba- bies. Between class periods, it is a common sight at the Andalusia DICKEY college to see a car pull up to • ' the entrance - a car driven by Dickey New As the car comes to a care- ful halt, me other mother, book- laden because she has been at- tending class, dashes out the door, slips under the steering wheel as the other mother aban- dons the driver's seat. The exchange has been made, the roles reversed, and once again one mother is in class, while the other is homeward bound to care for the child- ren. Sandra Davis, her husband, and her two little daughters, Beverly, age 5, and Ltnda, age 3, reside at 303 Third Avenue. Her husband, Joe W. Davis, is employed as a lumber inspec- tor for the Southern Pine In- Baptist Pastor At Lockhart The Rev. Huie T. Dickey of New Port Richey, Florida, is the new pastor of Lockhart Baptist Church.

Mrs. Dickey will receive the "Certificate of Recognition for Wives," representing 25 se- mester hours. However, she has credit for 70 hours of the 98 required for the diploma. She was Edna Cruz of Key West, Florida. They have throe children, ages 4 to 10. The family will remain in Grace- ville until public school is out, before moving to Lockhart. VEASEY FOUND NOT QUILTY IN 1st DEGREE MURDER CASE On Tuesday, April 14, 1970, a jury was struck and the case of the State of Alabama vs. James Veasey was tried. Veasey had been indicted by the January Term, 1970, Grand Jury for First Degree Murder. This charge arose out of an incident on January 19, 1970, in which one Edward Caine was shot by Veasey with a shotgun at the home of Mrs. Minnie Sorrells northwest of Gantt. Veasey, who was represented by appointment by Griffin Sikes, established a plea of self defense which caused the Jury to find him not guilty. - PERSONALS- Mrs. Sallie Parker spent the weekend in DeFuniak with re- latives. one mother shepherding all three children. - PERSONALS - Mrs. Bill Perry of Clear- water, Fla., is spending this week with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Gamble.
