BROOK, INDIANA, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 1945 50th Year Number 9 County Service Officer Appointed Ed. Messersmith has been appointed as Newton County Service Officer. This new office has become necessary because of the number of men that have been and will be discharged and large number of matters that will come up in regard to their disability compensation, insurance and discharge papers, allotments, etc. Xewton county will have a man in this office that is probably better fitted for it than any other man in this section of the state. Ed. has been county American Legion Service Officer and the County Red Cross Service Officer all during the war and has given practically all of his time with no compensation except expenses and travel mileage. Gertrude Williams, an ex-service woman, has been appointed secretary. Xot only is she an ex-service woman, but she had four brothers in service, one of them having been killed in action. Special 4-H Awards At Fair 4-H Club members competed for special prizes as well as the usual cash prizes in their recent exhibits at the Xewton County Fair. Barbara Perkinson, of Goodland, -was awarded a Victory Bond by the Xewton County REMC for winning the girl's Dress Revue. In the beef division Harold Potts, of Mt. Ayr, was presented a Victory Bond by W. A. Rafferty, of Morocco, for showing the Grand Champion isteer of the show. Ross Hillis presented Josephine Henderson, of Washington Township, a bond for winning the light weight Angus class. He also presented Norman Weldon, of Kentland, a bond for winning the Angus heifer class.

Special dairy awards were provided by the Momence Milk Co-op, of Kentland, and the Sherman White Co., at Goodland. Also, Harold Foulkes awarded a bond to Donald Spurlock, of Goodland, for exhibit ing the champion dairy animal or the 4-H show. James Daddow, of Morocco, who Is a harness maker presented a hand made halter to Harold Potts and Donald Spurlock for winning top honors in the beef steer and ctairy classes. MUCH COMMENT ON AMERICAN LEGION TENT The tent sponsored by the American Legion posts of the county at the Fair brought much favorable comment. Marked off to represent a cemetery, with 48 white crosses, representing the number of men from this county lost in action, it was a memorial to these men. Also a large white lighted cross represented the grave of the unknown soldier and a large plaque in the tackground gave the names of all Mien in the county who made the supreme sacrifice. Much of the credit for the memorial is due Harry Blaney, commander of the Morocco Friday members of the American Legion and a number of service men lead the livestock parade. The American flags from the four posts -were carried by the Commanders and the post colors were also in the parade. The posts are already makiig plans for a much more elaborate dis play for next year. Monday, Sept. 24 ALBERTA, J. H.

(Continued on page two) ACCOUNT -1 i me KEY STONE sugOess Community f f Stoves & Furnace Repairs Steve & Furnace Pipe Pyrex Ware Enamel Ware Nu-Joy Destroyed By Fire The Nu-Joy restaurant at Kent-land, together "with all fixtures and supplies was completely destroyed by fire last Sunday afternoon shortly after noon. The fire, that started in the kitchen, spread so fast that one or two cash registers were the only things taken from the building. According to one of the employees who works in the kitchen, there were several large pans of grease on the range. He thinks that the flue was probably defective and that sparks fell from it into the grease and the entire kitchen "was immediately enveloped in flames. In addition to the Kentland fire department, the fire departments from Watseka, Sheldon, Morocco, Brook, Goodland, Fowler and Earl Park were called and they assisted in protecting nearby buildings. The building was owned by Henry Reinhardt, of Kentland, and was leased to the Interstate Company, of Chicago and was managed by Harold Holmberg. A building housing a garage at the north side of the restaurant building was of fire-proof construction and did not burn.
