The "Lyric News"
The Lyric theater was at the southeast corner of Main and Front streets. At about the same time, the Ritz was owned by Mr. Coggins and was located near it's popular location west of Epting's.
"Screeno" was a form of, or was actually, Bingo. That was a very large amount of money for a jackpot prize in those days. WW2 hadn't started for the USA and the economy must have been pretty good.

Thanks to John and Jo Carolyn (Anderson) Beebe for the newspaper photos.
