We were talking the other day to a Nashville business man who lives in Donelson. He is looking forward to the day when traffic from Donelson and the Stewart's Ferry Dam will force the State Highway Commission to build a double-lane highway, similar to that on Murfreesboro Road, to Nashville. The cork-screw turns and hills on the present road often make long processions behind a loaded truck or slow driver. The beautiful highway that he envisions would certainly be a boon to Donelsonites. Aside from the elimination of the troublesome traffic it should cut down on the number of accidents now dotting the road. The dangerous intersections of Donelson Pike and McGavock Lane on Lebanon Road would be eliminated. The railroad crossing at the city limits would then have a traffic signal to forestall any future auto-train crashes. It is nice to dream!
Santa Claus, in all his glory, will call at Bloom's Department Store Saturday between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Benjamin S. Bloom, of the store, hasn't indicated just how and in what manner Santa Claus will arrive but assures the residents of Donelson that he will be on hand to greet the kiddies. Santa Claus will present free gifts to the kiddies during his short stay in Donelson.
T. L. Wright, who formerly lived in Una, had little in the way of fishing luck around Chattanooga and decided to return to his old "stamping grounds" to try his luck. While visiting W. C. Goodwin early this week he unlimbered his rod on "Flat Rock," Stone's River, where he swam as a boy. His hunch produced two large-mouth bass, one weighing about 3 pounds and the other 3 1/2.
Rutherford Couynty and the City of Murfreesboro have agreed to furnish rights of way for the construction of a four-lane highway between Nashville and Murfreesboro, according to State Highway Commissioner C. W. Phillips. The four-lane highway had already been planned to run from Nashville to Smyrna but will now be extended to Murfreesboro.
