ALEINIK Telephone 110 B.Moores Purchase the Dairy Lunch Mr. and Mrs. Burton Moore have returned to Scottville from Reed City where they lived the past year. They have purchased the Dairy Lunch, located in the Robinson building, corner of Main and State streets, and recently owned by the Hillsamer Brothers of Brethren. Mr. and Mrs. A Hillsamer, who took over the interests of the company early in the month, found the work to strenuous and were obliged to give it up. They have enjoyed a splendid business and made many friends in Scottville who are sorry to have them leave. Mr. and Mrs. Moore are well- known to Scottville folks and have had much experience in this work so will be "able to carry on the business in a most efficient manner. Mrs. Mary Sims, 81, Honored on Sunday Honoring Mrs. Mary Sims, who celebrated her 81st birthday anniversary Sunday, Sept. 24, a special service was held at Grace Evangelical church, where she is a constant attendant whenever she is able. A favorite hymn, "When They Ring the Golden Bells for You and Me," was sung and Rev. E. F. Rhoades, pastor, spoke in appreciation of her life and her work. Sunday was also National Gold Star Mothers' day, a group of which Mrs. Sims is a member. A national program was given in their honor over the radio. Mrs. Sims is also the oldest member of the church. Four Marquette Inmates Caught After Wild Flight (Continued from Page 1) instruct guards not to hinder its passage through the prison gates. Guards stood by helplessly as the car sped away, afraid to open fire lest the convicts carry out their threat to kill their hostages. Five miles from the prison they released Deputy Warden Newcome with instructions to warn .pursuers that the other three would be killed if the 1 chase became close. A highway blockade was quickly set up, however, along the few roads leading from the heavily forested area surrounding; the prison, and state police followed the fleeing automobile. Pascoe leaped from the car as it swerved to avoid a barricade at an intersection near Menominee, 122 miles from the prison, and a few miles farther the speed of the car rolled it over as it tried to negotiate a curve. Warden Coon said* the four convicts were "very congenial" during the wild ride which at times reached a pace of 90 miles an hour. "But they meant business, all right," he added. "It is to the prison guards' credit," he said, "that there was much delay in supplying a car. And instead of a new car, the convicts were given an old sedan and the gasoline j gauge was short-circuited so j that it showed a full tank when actually it had only a gallon of gas." Suspecting such a ruse, the convicts stopped the car for gasoline a short distance away from the prison and released the deputy warden before continuing their flight. Stearns, third member of the quartet involved in the break, tried a sensational escape from the state prison of Southern Michigan at Jackson a year ago dressed as a guard. He was apprehended before he | could make good his escape, and later transferred to Marquette. Corner Stone for Hospital Laid Monday present Paulina Stearns hospital including a photo off Mrs. J. S. Stearns, for whom it was named; early and present-day photos of Mason county public buildings, and a copy of the annual summer edition of The News. Following tradition, a number of onlookers placed pennies in the box just before it was to toe sealed—for good luck, symbolic of the success with which they hope the building will meet. Rev. Erling Edwardsen, president of Mason County Ministerial association, closed the program with a prayer and benediction, following which the band played "The Star Spangled Banner." Finance drive to raise $30,000 to complete the building— largest drive in Mason county in over 25 years-^will start next week, officials explained, and will continue for a three-week period. Starting Monday, Oct. 2, It will be conducted among places of 'business next week, which will ibe followed by a house-to- house campaign throughout the county.
