Drove to Maryville, Pushed to Skidmore

From the December 11, 1924 Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1:

Drove to Maryville, Pushed to Skidmore

Last Sunday, in spite of the condition of the roads, Leon Bagby persuaded Bill Kennedy, Vincent Smith and Glenn Stevens to Accompany him to Maryville on a very important date.  They secured Myron Newton to drive them over in his Ford.  Going over, they made pretty good time, making the trip in about 3 1/2 hours, but on their return that evening, they were afraid to look at their watches to see just how long it took them to make the trip.  The mud was getting a little stiff and it was necessary for them to get out and push.  Outside of pushing and repairing tubes, the trip was very pleasant.  Bill, Vinc and Glenn swear that the next time Leon has to go to Maryville, he will have to pick a dry day or get some one else to chaperon.
