A large crowd gathered at the scene of the fire when the alarm sounded at the height of the Saturday night shopping time. Ironically enough, through the heat and smoke of the Saturday night blaze, a little bowl of goldfish at the Nichols home swam around contentedly, unaware of the confusion around them. Shortly after the fire department was called to the scene of the blaze, Galva Police Department was called to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Gustafson, 311 S.E. Third St., where vandals had thrown a rock through the large plate glass window. Police are working on the theory that the same gang was responsible for both acts. To New Post A 1/c Richard B.
