Carthage was preparing to celebrate the centennial of the town, and according to The Carthage News, April 21, 1982, The Carthage Commercial Club was selling Shaving and Cosmetic Permits. Ladies who wished to wear cosmetics in public were to carry a permit at all times, and men were to carry permits to shave, or else grow a beard or mustache. A limited time was allowed to purchase a permit or be “arrested” and appear in kangaroo court. Shaving permits were $5, and cosmetic permits were $2.
