I Switch I fl h Modem Heating at Its very best MONDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1957 BUTLER CITY COUNCIL WILL CONSIDER GAS FRANCHISE An ordinance is being proposed to the Butler city council which will give the Northern Indiana Fuel & Light Co. of Auburn a franchise to sell, and distribute nautral gas in Butler and immediate vicinity. The public hearing on the ordinance will be held at the Butler city hall on Monday evening, November 18 at 8:00 o'clock. The proposed ordinance goes into detail as to the responsibilities of both the gas company and the city. It also stipulates that the gas company must have its service in Butler within one year. A similar ordinance was passed about a year and a half ago, awarding a gas distribution franchise to the Consumers Natural Gas company, a subsidiary of the Ohio Gas company of Bryan, O. However, in that ordinance the gas company was given a two-year period in which to brine its service into Butler. The two-year clause in that ordinance will not be up until next May but it appears that the Bryan company will be unable to procure gas for the Butler area by that time. It is understood that the Northern Indiana Fuel & Light Co. has the necessary allocation of natural gas trom tne Federal Power Commission, and is ready to bring gas into the Butler area vet this fall. The Auburn concern has been negotiating the purchase of the Butler franchise which is held by Consumers, but no agreement has been reached. In the meantime the Bohn Al uminum & Brass comDanv. which is building a new plant at the west eage ot Butler, is ready for gas. It is said that the city of Butler can award gas distribution franchises to both gas companies. AUTO RAMS HEAVY TRUCK ON U.S. 6 NEAR CORUNNA A 1956 Chevrolet driven by a Waterloo man, Carl A.

Fire At Farm Home Causes $400 Damage Auburn city firemen, aided by a steady rain, extinguished a fire that broke out in the Robert Rup- pert residence in Jackson township southeast of Auburn Wednesday night and caused damage estimated at $400. The farm residence is owned by Mrs. Arthur Friend, Rt. 2, Auburn. The loss was covered by insurance with the DeKalb county Farmers Mutual Fire Insurance company. Auburn Fire Chief Gilbert Potter said the farm home is located one and one-half miles south of the Rehoboth Methodist church and about six miles southeast of Auburn. Firemen were summoned at & 8:55 p.m. after' the blaze was dis- tuvereu Dy me ituppert cnuaren. Firemen said a steady rain kept the flames from spreading on the roof after it broke through from the attic. The fire chief reported that Ruppert carried water to the attic to throw on the blaze until firemen arrived. Firemen had the blaze under control within 15 minutes after they arrived at the scene. They were at the home about an hour. According to the fire chief, the frame house may have gone up in flames had it not been for the rain. The fire was blamed on a defective chimney feeding from a coal fur- . nace. The fire apparently started in the attic and spread to the roof. A four-foot square section of the roof was burned through. The fire also damaged one wall of an upstairs bedroom. The world would be better off if there were fewer busy-bodies and more bodies busy. Auctioneer Realtor Russell Kruse Auburn, Ind.
