   CLYDE BARROW IN MINDEN

 

By: Harol Lynn Turner Thompson

 My dad actually sold some cigarettes to Clyde at the City Grocery on Main Street. It was Sat. night; Mom was sitting in the car waiting

 for Dad to close the grocery...and she sees this woman smoking a cigarette ..on the Main street of Minden ...the man went in and bought

 cigarettes; nothing else happened even though Dad's partners, Mr. McCoy and Mr. Woods were by the front window counting the week's

 receipts.
