Feb. 1, 1957-A three-day celebration of the first anniversary of the Army Ballistic Missile Agency in Huntsville has begun. Many Hartselle residents are employed at ABMA and they and their family members were invited to participate. The general public, unfortunately, is not allowed because of the highly secretive work of the agency.
Feb. 2, 1957-The annual Huntingdon alumnae luncheon was held today at Decatur’s Hotel Lyons. Mrs. Hoyt Groover, Mrs. L. C. Pattillo, Miss Merle Pattillo, and Miss Lizzie Reed Penn attended from Hartselle.
Feb. 2, 1957-Mrs. Faye K. Parker and her students-Patty Jane Montgomery, Martha Hartselle, Bill Stewart, and Jimmy Millwood-are attending the Future Teachers of America convention at Livingston State this weekend.
Feb. 3, 1957-Bill Huie has closed a deal for the purchase of the J. J. Cade home at 518 Ivy Street and he says the old house will be torn down this year and replaced by a modern bungalow.
The new home, when completed, will also be the residence of Huie’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Huie, who are moving back here from Garden City.
Feb. 4, 1957-Max Merrill, Joe and Ike Groover, Jimmy Cain, and Bob Orr, all UA students, have now returned to Tuscaloosa after spending the between-semester break with homefolks.

Feb. 7, 1957-A representative group of Hartselle citizens met tonight and discussed the many phases of the Hartselle school situation. The participants recommended that Hartselle remain in the county system but that an effort be made to enact an additional one-cent sales tax the proceeds of which would be devoted to the improvement of local schools.
