News DM ., Alf*n«, l«wa D<Mini« Woll*r, Editor Appearance Of Burt Changed BURT - Old landmarks must go to make room for progress and improvement. Such was the case in Burt this past week when members of the Burt Presbyterian church purchased the Lilliam Blumer property west of their new house of worship. Two bulldozers and the LeRoy Elbert crew from Whittemore dozed out three large elm trees, one measuring at least three feet in diameter, and the vacant house on the corner was dozen down and burned while firemen stood by. The ground was leveled and will be made into a parking lot for the school. A very different appearance was made where the old church stood. The basement has all been filled in and the ground leveled. The grounds will soon be seeded and landscaped. The picture shows the stately elms succumbing to the two bulldozers. Burt Calendar _-... . COMMUNITY EVENTS MONDAY, Oct 2-Town Council meets, 8 p. m.
