Well Drilling Firm Engaged by Township Board RAMSAY — At its meeting last Friday night, the Bessemer Township Board signed a contract to engage the B & B Webster Drilling, Harshaw, W i s .. to drill wells for a new water supply on land purchased at an option by the board from Arvid Anderson, located in Section 24, NEVfe of NEVi, Besse m e r Township. The board has obtained other options for land in the event the test drilling on the above mentioned parcel proves unsuccessful. Before proceeding with plans to look for a new water supply, the State of Michigan Board of Health and the water resources commission were consulted and approval by the state board of health was granted to the township board to drill wells for water on the parcels obtained. The present water supply system is antiquated and costly because water is obtained for drinking and other purpose from the Black River. This water must go through a series of processes which bleach, chemically cle a n and chlorinate the water making it suitable for public use according to state health stand a r d s. The pump station is in need of much repair and old machinery and pumps would have to be replaced. If the well dril ling proves successful, the expensive chemicals will not have to be added and the water will be pumped into the main lines directly after going through a chlorinating process only. In other actions the board unanimously adopted a resolution granting the transfer of the SDM and SDD licenses from William K. Velin to Jack Lindquist. A copy of this resolution was sent to the Liquor Control Commission. Discussion were held on several items including clean-up week for Bessemer Townsh i p; delinquent water acounts; garbage and debris being dumped along roadsides, near the river, and in vacant lots; disposition of the old fire truck and lights on the ball field. Even though this should not have to b« necessary because state law prohibits litter ing, signs prohibiting dumping of rubbish will be placed in vari o u s places in the township. The board members said there is no reason whatsoever for perso n s to be dumping rubbish along roadsides, near the river, and in vacant lots because weekly garbage collection service Is provided. It is the hope of the board that this will terminate so that complaints will not have to be made and that residents will keep their community clean and help to clean vacant lots and make them look a bit more attractive, not unsightly, by filling them with rubbish, rocks, trees and brush. Clean-up Week Starts May 24 RAMSAY —Clean-up week in Bessemer Township will beg 1 n Monday, May 24. All rubbish must be placed near alleys or at the curb of the street where garbage containers are usua 11 y placed but not in the street or alley. Garbage and debris resulting from "clean-up" should be placed in cans, boxes or bundled in a form convenient for collection. Cans or boxes should not be larger than the regula- of the larger containers in ftvor of regulation size or smaller, because it is much easier to pick up two small containers than one which is over-sized, heavy and burdensome. A special appeal is being made to all residents, especially businessmen, to abide by this regulation. Ann Landers .Answers Your Problems.

I've developed a terrific dislike for the child and I'm sure others have, too. Whenever the telephone rings the child answers it. She often asks, "Who is this" And "What do you want Mommy for" Whene v e r this friend telephones me s h e says, "Somebody here wants to talk to you." Then she puts the youngster on. Is it fair for a mother to inflict her child on anyone who happens to ring up? Is it wise to give a four-year-old the impression that everyone and anyone wants to listen to her babble? I would like to see this letter and your reply in print because others who have this prob 1 e m must be as baffled as I am.— RESENTFUL Dear Resentful: A four-year- old should not be permitted to answer the phone, and a mother who inflicts her four-year-old on friends does them a dirty trick.

Mom says if he doesn't eat some solid food ha will die of malnutrition. Pop says beer is plenty nourshin g , because of the malt and the hops and the grain and that he can live on it 'just fine. Mom says if he plans to live on beer he had better start looking for another place to live because he is not going to live here. About ten in the evening Pop gets pretty noisy.
