The Browns, getting bat-happj after a woeful start that fomu them ^shut out four times in their first 10 games, rocked the visiting Washington Senators, 14 to 5, 01 20 hits yesterday on the heels o 15 to 5 victory on 14 hits over the New York Yankees the previous day. •Rucl, who was so busy last sea- in as an assistant to Basebail roop Names Leaders Klwyn Caldwell has twen elected: iJuc of Troop 3i and other olft- rs who will serve are Bobby Colean, senior patrol leader; Will Whltner mid Graham Sudbury, laitcrmnslers; Charles Began, oop bugler; and Kenneth Hood, Imrlcs Bogan, Richard Luni and .

RftlDY KILOWATT Yessir, folks. Keddy Kilowatl, your electric ncrvanl, had a bad day yesterday as a result ol' that uasly early morning storm. Thai's why this message is being wrilleti ... to thimk uvcry.••onew/.' of you who had lo do without your usual good electric, service for your kind patience and iindersiaiuUtig while the damuge was being repaired. Kspecially do we wish to [hank the people of Steele, llollard and Cooler, who suffered the most damage and had lo go without service the longest. To Ihe people in Caruthersville, llayti and 1'ortageville we. also offer our 1 unanimous vote of thanks for their forehciirnncc when Keddy Kilowatt failed to show up lor work for a short while. In addition to tin; severe damage done lo the distribution systems iu these towns, nearly a mile of high voliage transmission line was blown down, requiring, in one section alone, replacement of twenty-one poles and stringing o r many thousands of feet of wire. Many more poles ]iad to be straightened up or replaced and hundreds of big repair jobs made in every one of these towns, in addition lo many minor repairs in other localities. Five additional line crews were called in from other towns we serve lo lake care of the emergency, and, thanks lo the efforts o'! these skilled men, your electric service will soon (if not already so) be b"ck to normal, with Keddy Kilowatt, your faithful electric servant, back on the job, lo serve yon in hundreds of ways for only a few cents a day. Thanks again for your patience. We want to continue lo merit your good will by continuing to do everything possible to keep your electric service the finest, the most dependable in the world.
