The Boles generations, a family prominent in the history
of Overton and Pickett Counties, will have a family reunion on the
first Sunday in September, it has been announced, on the site where
Jimmie Boles settled when he came to Tennessee from Virginia. A
program is being arranged for the reunion, and the public is to
be invited. All members of the Boles family are being urged to attend.
The location of the reunion is Bolestown, in Pickett County, on
the site where Jimmie Boles built a log cabin before the War Between
the States. An old log house stands nearby, which his son, Capt.
John Boles, of the Federal army built. The Jimmie Boles farm contained
209 acres and was part of the 40,000 acre tract granted by North
Carolina to Stokley Donaldson and William Tyrell at one cent an
acre. The land was purchased in 1832.
Miss Thomas Ada Hankins, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Richard H. Hankins, of Livingston, received her Bachelor of Arts
degree with the honor "Magna Cum Laude" from Tennessee
College for women in Murfreesboro on June 5. Her high scholarship
placed her on the College honor roll. During her senior year she
served as vice-president of the honor commission; president of the
Sunday; member of the staff of the "Dryad", the college
year-book. Her artistic ability caused her to be made chairman of
the YWA Poster Committee. She took the part of the "Notary"
in the commencement play, "The Romancers", by Rostand,
which was presented on the east campus Monday evening. She served
as chairman of the stage committee for this play. In the college
annual the prophesy concerning Miss Hankins read: "An artist,
like whom there are but few; She lives by her brush, makes a picture
live too. Watch the illustrations in the Pictorial Review."
John E. McCall, of Memphis, Republican, is the third
candidate to qualify for the race for Governor, formally announcing

G.C. McDonald has been appointed Overton County campaign
manager for Governor Hill McAlister in his race for renomination
this year. Mr. McDonald, a prominent Overton County Democrat, is
making an active campaign in his candidate's behalf. His office
is in the building formerly occupied by the CWA.
