From the April 6, 1922 Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1:
Another New Correspondent.
The News has another new correspondent this week — Mrs. Oliver C. Neil, who formerly wrote the Bethany Items for the Graham Tribune. We are mighty glad to have these items, and hope that Mrs. Neil will contribute regularly each week. The Bethany and Graham items will be found on page three.
We found them on page four of that issue, but who’s counting?
