Supervisors in agreement on ambulance A decision was .finally reached last •"" WHEN MR. AND MRS. Jim Chaurtrom decided to adopt a baby some time ago, the first people to know were the pupils of Mrs. Chalstrom's fourth grade class at the! Lucia Wallace school. Small wonder the 30 youngsters in i the class have taken such an interest in the new arrival ever since. During the time the Chalstroms were making arrangements for their new baby, she kept the class posted! on the progress and the kids were every bit as anxious for;) the new baby to arrive as were the parents. I Knowing their teacher would be leaving them when they got the baby, the youngsters on their own decided to give Marianne Chalstrom a "farewell party?' Friday, the day.she and her husband went to Fort Dodge to pick up the three-week old baby. All on their own, with only^ the parents purchasing the gift, the youngsters collected money for a gift and planned the party. Above, JoAnn Taylor is shown presenting Mrs. Chalstrom with a farewell gift last Friday afternoon lust a; short time before the teacher left to get their new daugh-' ter. , } One nine-year old summed up the classes' feeling* best: "Oh mother," she told her mom, "we all feel like we are losing our mother."
