False alarm
Firefighters responded to an
alarm at Madras Jr. High Mon
day, January 20, which turned
out to be false.
Staff and students at the school
evacuated the building before
discovery was made that a student
had pulled the alarm.
The student received a three
day out-of-school suspension
for the action. A friend who
encouraged the action spent time
on an in-school suspension.
The student was interrogated
by firefighters regarding the inci
dent. Although there is no penal
ty in the Jefferson County Fire
District for such action the State
police can issue a citation for
either a Class felony for
initiating a false report of a fire
or an emergency situation. The
charge may be a lesser one for
Valentines encouraged
We at Spilyay Tymoo are
true romantics at heart. We
think a true show of affection,
like doing the dishes when your
true love is sick in bed with a
temperature of 105, is really
touching. And, if your loved
one scrimps and saves every last
dime to buv vou a gift certificate
at "Oil Can Harry's," terrific!
Whatever keeps the two ol you
happy, we're all for it!
But, if you have a flair and a
hankering for sweet words of
love and adoration, please con
sider our "Page for the Pas
sionate." Our February 14 edi
tion will carry all those notes to
the lovelorn and the passionate,

that Indian veterans and their

assistance that they were entitled
to receive.
According to the findings of
the project these vets need a
