In the late 1920s the Exponet-Telegram [which I believe is, or was, a newspaper in Clarksburg, WV] ran a Bible contest. There were so many entrys that they were published over a period of a couple of years.
I do not know the date of issue that the following was printed.Keep in mind it was the late 1920s or early 1930s so it might be difficult to contact anyone regarding this info. * * * *
