Elloree Man Buys Williston Theatre

It has been announced that Dr. J.T. Greene, of Elloree, has recently purchased the Williston Theatre. The theatre, formerly owned and operated by Mrs. Elizabeth Vanderburgh for a number of years was sold to Dr. Greene several months ago so that she could join her husband who is a member of the armed forces.

Mrs. Myrtle Starnes, of Williston, new manager of the theatre, began her work this week.
