Junior Women's Club Responsible
For City Swim Pool Improvements
A group of industrious young
women is responsible for making
the Roseburg Municipal Swimming
Pool one of the most attractive and
well-kept in the state.
The Roseburg Junior Woman's
Club is engaged in many civic and
social activities, but decided re
cently to make the pool in pet
project. The painting of the bleach
ers is the latest contribution and
is only a follow-up of supplying the
material for the bleachers in the
first place.
Members pointed out that most
of the money used comes from the
community itself, a large part de
rived from a telephone campaign
conducted by the club and the Jun
ior Chamber of Commerce.

Several residents reported hear
j ing a plane circling low over the
St. Joe River valley on the day
the plane disappeared.
A Spokane insurance man, Ed
ward J. Kcilty, 34, disappeared
last May while flying a light
plane with similar coloring. His
red and cream plane went down
while on a flight from Spokane
to Missoula, Mont.
Froese's plane was red and
silver. The hunters' report of
red and white wreckage would
fit either craft, deputies said.
Kcilty's plane was believed to
have gone down near the Idaho
Montana line farther north than
the larger Cessna, but both planes
were following the same general
route when they disappeared.

Adopiion Resource Exchange, un
der the direction of Miss Grace
Semcnia in the State Department
of Public Assistance.
Its purpose is primarily lo find
homes for children, who, because
of their age, colo- physical handi
caps or emotional problems, have
been difficult to place in adoption.
Each month, the department
semis a bulletin to the 39 county
welfare offices and six private
adoption agencies, listing t h e
names and descriptions of avail
able youngsters and parents.
The bulletins are also mailed to
the 12 states and two Canadian
provinces which have similar ex
change programs
Thus, if one agency doesn't
have a child fitting the needs of a
certain couple, another agency
might, and the exchange can bring
them together.
To keep the exchange list up lo
date, the private agencies are
urged to inform tne exchange o.t-
tice in Olympia of all newly-
ironing time to a minimum many things coma out
of modern dryers so smooth you don fiavo fo
bother ironing 'em).., save money (fewer clothes
lo buy, when you can wasfi 'em ona get 'em dry
so quickly and easily). A dothes dryer is a wise
buy anytime, but especially right now, while your
favorite CoOre Electrical league deoler can give
you an electric blanket free w'tfi your purchase!

such procrams. making possible a
nationwide pool of children and
adoptive parents.
