The ordinance regarding the •peration of the machines in town was written to protect •perators and non-operators •like, and I hope 1 that more •are in their operation is taken before there is *, serious accident. Riders are urged to me only the designated streets, to observe the 15 MPH speed limit iji town, stop at all crossings, and in general use common sense in their operation. I know they are a lot of fun, tent the rights and property of ethers have to be respected. The council has also received many complaints about sidewalks that are not shoveled. A city ordinance states, "It shall be the responsibility of the abutting property owner to promptly remove snow, ice and accumulations 'from the sidewalk, but i n the event such snow, ice or accumulations are permitted to remain on said sidewalk for more than a reas- anable length of time, then the street commissioner shall cause the same to be removed and the actual cost thereof shall be assessed against said property." The failure to reimove snow causes pedestrians to use the streets, and this can be danger- us. Your cooperation is needed, I hope we will have a good turnout for the information meeting tonight concerning the development at the Gruis Recreation Area. It is hoped that most of the board members will be present to answer your questions and explain the development of the area. When completed, the area will offer one of the finest recreation facilities in the state. Like so many projects promoted in small communities, it is going to .take the cooperation of a lot of interested persons to see the plan through to its completion. The men's bowling association tournament will be held next week at Tyke Lanes. The tournalment is open to all men bowlers, and it is hoped that there will once again be a good turnout. The fee of only $3.00 per event is very nominal and should make it possible for everyone to take pant. This is the Sun-day football fans have been waiting for all year, and especially Viking fans. Although the Steelers are Services Held Saturday For Arnold Boever, 57 Arnold Boever, 57, Titonfca area 'farmer, died Tuesday, December 31 at the Holy Family Hospital in EstherVille after becoming suddenly ill.

They have been ithere twice before and the experience should be enough to pull them through this time. It should be a great defensive battle, but I am sure the Vikes don't want ito be the first team to lose on three attempts. That's it for another week.
