a clock radio, and a portable radio.
And who in this day and age would

and fun too at the Firemen's benefit.
Money raised in this manner goes into
modernizing the equipmen used by
the volunteer fire department.
Thousands of dollars in property
are saved each year through the ef­
forts of this group of men. Their sup­
port is deserved and residents here
have proven they are behind the de­
partment by their purchase of tickets.
Several stores are giving away
tickets with purchases at this time.

Several other club members have spent hours
of work getting the cabin In shape. The nouth
side of the building still needs to be sided up, but
siding is on hand to complete this. Much remains
to be done on the inside. A false ceiling and walls
have to be finished and a new floor laid. Five of
the six electric heaters have been installed.
