70 Years Ago
Miss Nancy Young Myers Dies Suddenly

•Miss Nancy Young (Nannie) Myers, age 72, died Wednesday, April 20, of a heart attack at her home in East Livingston. She had been ill for several months, but her death came sudden and unexpectedly.
•She had been a member of the Church of Christ for more than fifty years, and was an excellent Christian character.
•She was the daughter of the late Captain Calvin Myers and Mrs. Elizabeth Young Myers. Her father served as a volunteer in the war with Mexico, also as Captain in the war between the states for four years, passing away a few years ago at the age of 97 years.
• Miss Myers is survived by four sisters, Miss Dora Myers of Cookeville, Misses Julia J. and Maggie C. Myers of Livingston, and Mrs Ina Denton of Livingston, and four brothers Phillip Myers, White N. Myers and Wm. K. Myers of Livingston, and Leighton F. Myers of Route 1 Cookeville.

Storage Space is Major Consideration in the Farm Home
• Storage space often presents a major problem in many homes, states Mrs. Alta Keisling, county chairman of the Better Homes Campaign.
•The closet should have sufficient natural or artificial light for its contents to be easily seen. If the light from the room is not sufficient, nor electricity available, this can be accomplished by the use of a flashlight hung on a cord and tacked just inside the door.
•Sliding doors may be used to save space in the room or to make the contents of the closet more accessible. Doors to walk-in closets should fit tightly at the bottom to keep out dust.
•A cabinet with horizontal shelves is very satisfactory for shoes since it can be converted into many other uses, particularly when the closet is rearranged to meet childrens needs, Mrs. Keisling states. Tilted shelves or racks require less floor space than horizontal ones, but lack the advantages of convertability. Drawers or trays are more convenient than shelves for the storage of folded clothing.
•The rod on which to hang clothes should be placed high enough to allow six inches below garments hanging from it, and to permit cleaning the floor without disturbing the garments.
•Hooks should be placed as near the door as possible, never on back of the rod.
