St. Paul Main Street receives grant The Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development announced $129,400 in Virginia Main Street funding for six proj- ects in Virginia. The grants include Downtown ,Investment Grants (DIG) and Financial Feasibility Grants including $15,000 for St. Paul Main Street. A total of $75,000 in Financial Feasibility Grants will be awarded to the Main Street organiza- tions in the towns of Ashland, Farmville and St. Paul. These grants are intended to assist owners of "white elephant" build- ings identify their highest and best use and fund development of prelimi- nary engineering reports, preliminary architecture reports, market demand studies and gap-financing research. These grants often lead to more prompt redevelopment and lever- age private investment. In 1985, the Department of Housing and Community Development adopted the Main Street program for Virginia to help prevent downtown districts across the com- monwealth from economic decline and possible demo- lition. This unique program works to re-energize eco- nomic development of downtown communities while utilizing their cultur- al assets and character. This is further accom- plished by pooling the resources of their loc'al civic and business leaders who are determined to bring their Main Street comnunities back to life. 6 by Jerry Couch CLASS WILL We, the Senior Class of '44, St. Paul High School, being of sound minds and bodies, do hereby make, publish, and declare this our Last Will and Testament.

St. Paul School 1944 SERVICE PAGE To the boys and girls now in the service from our school and town, we dedicate this page as a tribute which, we hope, will express our gratitude for the splendid sacri- rice. May God bless each and every one of them and bring them back soon. There are several boys that would have graduated with our class this year, but had to miss all the fun and excitement of the senior play and commencement. Among these were: Robert Jessee (Navy), Albert Holbrook (Army), Billy Doyle (Navy), and Fred Holt (Army). Some of the former members found other things to interest them and went out to make their way in the world before they were called into the service of their country. These include: Wallace Pennington (Navy), Junior Hensley (Navy), Albert Tichenor (Army), and Harold Buchanan (Army). We sincerely feel that, during their sojourn with our ciass, they added some things that help make the class strong and aggressive, and we will long remember them. Some of the boys that are now graduating with us will have to leave soon after receiving their diplomas. We wish them the best of luck and we consider their contri- butions valuable assets to our class. To all the men and women in the service, we; the Senior Class of 1944, salute you !
