pAQB EIGHT BtTTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS SATURDAY, FEBRUAY "1 Rain Halts Work Obituary On SeMo Lake But Progress Was Good Until That Time By II. L. YEAGER STEELE — Heavy rains over the •week end and this week stopped the work of the dragline and bulldozers on the Pemiscot County Pishing Lake project. The county drag line and six bulldozers, spnt in to assist with the work, had made progress and but about two more days would have been required, according to Duke Still, president of the club. With the bayou now filled with water, it was stated that the work was delayed and would likely have to be completed by the drag line. The new 12-inch well, tested and ready for use, will not be needed for some time. , ! The rearing pond required but! about one-half day of work, where excavation was nearly completed and a strainer gate was being installed to separate the fingerlings in the rearing pond from big fish In the main lake. The big lake, near four miles in length, requires more work at its lower extreme in the way of a higher spillway embankment. The water will rise in the lake at this time to a five and one-half or six feet level. The survey has not been completed, but previous records sustain this estimate. Before the rains which now approximate ten inches over the week end period, word had been sent the Wildlife Commission of Missouri, regarding the progress and it was expected that a consignment oJ fingerlings would arrive at once. FORMOSA" (Continued from Page 1) army and air force men massed inactively on the coast across from Quemoy and The Matsus. Close examination of Chou's 14,000-word report to the People's Political Consultative conference appears to support the thesis that he didn't really mean serious business about Formosa's "liberation." His reference to the use of force seems almost an afterthought inserted in his speech to make an impression during Prime Minister Eden's visit to Washington. His main theme was that Formosa should be taken by nonviolence— subversion and mass defections of Nationalists.

L, YEAGER COOTEB — March 9 has been set for the sixth annual Lions Club minstrel show, according 1 to Joe Burton who directs the program and who is also this yenr president of the club. The remarkable success of the annual event dates back to its beginning as a project to raise money for civic and charity needs of the school and community. Their first show with the discovery that they had some unusual talent, has enabled the Lions Club in this manner to raise around $2,000 each year for their projects. It was pointed out by J. H. "Hack" Norrid, one of the directors of the club, that "we have purcnasea ail alllitillC iielfl aajum- ing school property, aided in eyesight clinic and purchased perhaps 50 pair of glasses for needy students., held a big Christmas party for chldren each year, and sponsored Little League ' and Pony League base ball." The Lions Club is a loyal group of about 27 members, who are looked upon as civic leaders and who take the responsibility of "lending the helping hand," in this town of about 500 population. Plans for the minstrel show work the year round. Highlighting the show this year, it is announced, will be six song numbers, the Ferryboaters Band, "crazy poems," and church hymns and popular song numbers by the Steele Extension Club Sextette.
