Christopher George Buttes was born Monday, October 14 at 6:48 8fm. (Phoenix time). He weighed 7 pounds, 5y 2 ounces, and according to his lAunt Vi, who swears she isn't prejudiced, "Is the most 'beautiful baby I Wave ever seen." I don't know if I'm more excited about the event than I should be (it's the first time I've ever toeen a granddad), bul it is a big thrill for me to realize that one of my children has torought a new life into this world. Naturally I am anxious to see the little fellow, so I have been fighting with myself .trying to decide if I should make a fast trip to see the kids and meet my grandson. I guess it's against my better judgment, but I have decided to make a quick trip .this weekend. It should be a great few days! Now, I have another grandchild to look forward to next March, and I aim sure that event will be as 'big a thrill as this one. Congratulations to the Titon-1 ka football team and their coaches. They have been piay-j ing some great ball, and with an outstanding effort should; be able to have a shot at .the 1 conference title. Good luck to the boys Friday night! It's a game I'm going to hate to miss, t It's too bad that I can't give' the recognition they deserve to all of the players on the team since it is a team effort that has brought them this far. Others that miss a lot of rec-i ognition are the cheerleaders,, band and >fans. It takes all of, them to put on the weekly Friday night spectacle. Even though we dontt get to mention them, their efforts are appreciated. The band had a great show for us Friday night as they played music and dressed in the style of the early 50s. Actually, the dresses remin,ded me of my high school days and that goes back .to the early 40s. The music was familiar and the coreography torought back a lot of memories. Thanks for the nostalgia. We've had some really great weather for harvesting the crops, and although they aren't as good as last year, it has to be .the greatest time of year for farmers as they reap the rewards of their year's labor. Beans are practically all combined In the area, and some farmers have started their corn harvest. It's a great time of year! That's it for another week. Remember .the gifts that Qod has given us and be thankful. MISSION FESTIVAL AT ST.

The roads were recently resurfaced with asphalt, but due to a shortage of funds, could not be shouldered and thus are classed as unfinished construction. The roads closed are: On County A42 west of Bancroft to Primary No. 15 for a total of 10.26 miles. On County B19 south of Lone Rock at the southeast corner of Section 13, Fenton Twp., thence west. 6 miles to the Palo Alto County line. Also on County B19 near the northwest corner of Section 28, Portland Twp, thence east to Primary No. 226, a total of 6 miles. Shouldering projects for the three highways will be let during the winter with completion in 1975. It is emphasized that these roads are only temporarily closed. The public may use the highways at their own risk in the event of an accident,, but are not encouraged to do so. If it is necessary for local traffic to use these highways, it is hoped that all concerned will travel at a moderate rate of speed and use extreme caution.

A 31 yard punt put the Indians deep in their own territory on the 17, and on their second play of the period, a short pass was intercepted on the 16 and the Hawk defender went in untouched for the first score of the game.
