JOURNAL TIME CAPSULE New Tenino Newspaper For years Tenino has had an excellent country newspaper in the news of that place. This paper, while supported by the business men, is a credit to the town and a better paper than its patronage deserves. A short time ago the good people of Tenino felt that the town was ready for a second paper. They brought in a fellow who was going to set the world on fire. As it happened he did not even get the match our of his fingers without burning himself badly and scorching his friends. This man, after taking many subscriptions in advance, got out one issue of his world beater in Centralia, sent it to Tenino to be mailed and skipped the country. - Elma Chronicle. 50 YEARS AGO Oct. 15. 1964 -- ", -' -, -. -. -:='_ .i Roy Rogers Will Make Personal Appearance at Paramount Nov.1 Bringing to Shelton one of the finest entertainment features ever offered at a local theatre, Gus Graf, manager of the Paramount Theatre announCed today that Roy Rogers, famous singing cowboy star, and his company, will make a personal appearance at the Paramount on Wednesday, November 1.
