…Another work of genius [in the window decorations for Winter Carnival] is that in the show window of Sherrill’s store.  It is an old fishman, dressed in fur coat and cap, sitting on a stool on the ice, fishing. Around him are spread his fishing outfit, hooks, sinkers, lines, tackle box, pipe, tobacco, and even the bottle of “84" is not forgotten This is the handiwork of Mr. Wesley Jordan, of Sherrill’s store
