The dancing floor at the College Campus was torn up on Monday, a dance having been held there on Saturday night. One was also held by the colored folks on Friday night followed by a "pistol game" within the town limits. Reports say that one of the participants in carrying out his part of the game used his wife as a target, but missed, the bullet slightly injuring a child who happened to be in the path of the bullet. Next day, Howard Green was arrested on the charge of carrying concealed weapons and fined $10 and costs. -- Union Bridge Pilot, Sept. 2, 1921.
