Mrs. Florence Bartholomew has received a letter from her nephew, Leo Bundy, who is now in Alaska, where he is in charge of a radio station for the government. Le is a Fairmount boy, and left here for the west last summer, being stationed near Seattle for a time before he was transferred to Alaska. He says he likes his work and the country, but it's a long ways from home. His letter, which in part is as follows, will be of interest to his Fairmount friends: "U. S.

The "Academy Fighting Five" traveled to Elwood Friday night and brought home a clean cut victory of 21 to 17 over Elwood high school. The game wa3 close at all stages and hotly contested by both sides. The first six minutes of the game was featured by neither team beiig able to make up a counter. The large audience held almost breathless be-' cause of the fast playing and clever team work being used by both teams. After six minutes of fast playing Elwood scored two baskets in quick succession and pandemonium broke out from the audience. This was practically the last of the Elwood's scoring during the first half, as the Quakers K0K0M0 WINNER BY TWO POINTS "Beat Marion Wednesday Night is the slogan and watchword of all local fans, of the students of Fairmount i high school and most decidedly of the fighting; Black and Gold team.

Because seventy-live deaths mean a death rate of 140.0 per 100,000 of population, a rate that is far too high for a civilized community to tolerate. Because, through the Christmas Seal Sale the money is raised to spread educational material throughout the county. Because Christmas Seal money has established and maintains the free tuberculosis clinic. Because Christmas Seal mot.V?y supports the Modern Health Crusade, in which school children throughout the county have enlisted to learn the lessons of health and right living. And finally, because Grant county must itat rest content with giving an average of 2.9 cents per capita, as last year, for an ENTIRE YEAR'S work against the "white plague." The money you spe:id for Christmas Seals is used against tuberculosis here in' this county and this state.
