The sympathy and grief of the entire community was shown in the large attendance at the funeral services held at the Stephens funeral home at 2 o'clocK .. 'Wednesday afternoon; in the great wealth of beautiful flowers, and the undercurrent of sympathizing- grief shown at the services. Sympathy was offered in the beautiful songs, "Jesus Gathers the Buds" and "Some Time We'll Understand," which were sung by Mrs. Earl Goff and Mrs. C. J. Peterson. Rev. R. R. King, pastor of the Methodist church, was the more deeply moved as the lad had been a personal ifriend, having been in the Sunday school classes and the church services under Rev. King's supervision. His tribute to the lad brought a feeling of comfort to the family and friends as he said in Among those who came from a distance to attend the services were Mrs. Erick Maas Milwaukee, Mr. and Mrs. Beatty of Saginaw, and relatives from Ludington and about the county.

We know the hardships that increased food prices can bring to countless families, therefore, our prices will be adjusted only to the extent that it is absolutely necessary. If owing to the laws of supply and demand the prices for food we purchase move upward, obviously, we will have to pay the higher cost and change retail prices accordingly. You have our assnrn.nce, however, that A&Ps' mat-gin of profit will continue to be very small and normal in every respect.
