As reported 51 years ago in the pages of The Columbia News, Thursday, Dec. 2, 1954:
On Tuesday morning in Chapel, Mrs. Glenn Phillips' second-grade section presented the story Hansel and Gretel in a short, three-act play.
The little play was beautifully acted by the following players: Hansel was acted by John Willis; Gretel's part was played by Carol Jean Nash; their mother was Mary Ann Moon; the father's party was by Bobby Culpepper; the Old Witch was acted by Dell McKelvey; Three Angels were Janice Ingram, Carole Anderson and Libb Swint; the Sandman part was played by Harry Pate; and the Announcer was Tommy Story.
Debate team wins
The Harlem High School debating team again brought back a victory over Social Circle when they met for the District finals in Athens.
They will return to Athens Dec. 6 for the state meet.
Representing the Affirmative on the question "Resolved: That the United States should initiate a system of free trade with the nations which are friendly to the United States" are Carolyn Cagle and Joy Belle Connor, and the Negative is represented by Joyce Murray and Jane Whitaker.
House numbering complete
The work of numbering all of the houses within the city limits of Harlem has been completed.
The next telephone dictionary to be issued by Southern Bell Telephone Co. in December will have the house numbers.
The December water bills will have the house number and the name of each street on each bill.
As a project for the local Boy Scout troop, they will sell house numbers for a nominal price, or they may be purchased at the City Hall. City Council requests that everyone purchase numbers rather than have an ordinance passed requiring each householder to do so.
