The article notes the appointment of Lucile Ing Pennel as deputy county clerk of Tipton County, Tennessee. She was the only woman to hold such a position in Tennessee as a result of the lobbying of Charles P. Simonton, the county clerk. Lucile was the daughter of Simonton's predecessor and she and Simonton married in 1913.
