Ashland people were exception­

Judie O. M. Frost for trial.
This is something of a record,
according to Chief of Police Mc­
Nabb. The chief declares that
the Christmas holidays are un­
usually the time when liquor
cheer flows quite freely, and that
during the past, Christmas has
been one-of the big times when
arrests for intoxication and for
the possession of intoxicating li­
quor were made. •

Christmas, an officer was on guard

few arrests were made, however,
and most of these were for poss­
essing small quantities of liquor,
none over ten gallons. None of
the reputed “bonded stuff” which
la usually associated with the
Christmas trade, was taken.
