CHAMBLIN SALES COMPANY R.R. & Ash Phone 6888 See tomorrow's Courier News for the Announcement of Whilsiffs Semi-Annual Price Sale Featuring the Greatest Values Ever! its WhltSl'u's Greetings Sores Money PHEONIX, Ariz. — W)— B«»UM a big greeting was written for Mlsi America, the City of Phoenix ha« saved itself about $2.500 a year. It was last fall when Jacque Mercer of Litchfield Park, Ariz., won tht beauty title at Atlantic City and her home state planned a gala reception. Along the airport runw;y townspeople wrote a big'"Welcome que" sign she could see as plane came in for a landing. P. the reception was only a one-day affair, an Inexpensive water mixed casein base paint was used. Official* at the airport waited for it to wash away. They watted, and waited and waited. For weeks planes coming to Phoenix saw "Welcome Jacque" In big letters. Finally the greeting was obliterated with flat black paint. But the sign had proved the less expensive paint could be used as runway markers, and Civil Aeronautics Administration approved, said Airport Manager Walter Fulkerson. So the city, which maintains the airport, will save about $2,500 on Its paint bill each year. The U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends the insecticide toxaphene for ticks, lice-nnd horn- Ilics on all livestock except dairy cows.
