COVINGTON’S NEW REGIME IN | COVINGTON, Tenn., April 13 – The following municipal officers, who were elected without opposition at the March 1921, election, were inducted into office yesterday, the oath being administered by Esquire James E. Walker: Mayor, James J. Miller; recorder, Paul Bringle; city marshal, W. C. Dumas; assistant marshal, J. O. Hadley; aldermen, Lee O. Baltzer, E. W. Bringle, Dr. N. R. Newman, Grant Reid, John A. Shelton and W. M. Simonton: members of board of education, Mrs. Nannie Belle Green, Mrs. G. B. Gillespie and Messrs. L. E. Gwinn, E. H. McFadden and E. L. Worrell. The new city officials are eminently qualified to give Covington a progressive and business administration and will make efficient officials. The administration of the retiring mayor, J. J. Green, reflects great credit both upon him and the board of aldermen. During Mr. Green’s term of office many improvements were carried to a successful conclusion and the street improvements initiated during his administration, and which will be finished during Mayor Miller’s administration, will make Covington one of the best and most up-to-date of the smaller cities in West Tennessee. The work of paving and hard surfacing the streets is now well under way.
