LILLIAN KIBBEY) SUMMIT.—The sudden death of Mrs. John Polsen at 6:-30 o'clock Tuesday morning, Nov. 7, greatly shocked the community. She had suffered from an incurable malady for three years, but for the past two years her health had been so greatly improved that she was able to enter into social activities of the community. Mrs. Rose Conrad Polsen would have attained the age-of 63 years had she lived until Dec. 31 of this year. She had lived her entire life in this community except for the eight years she had resided in Minneapolis, Minn., during her early married life. She was the daughter of David and Jane French Conrad of Summit and 27 years ago she was united in marriage to John Polsen. Two sons were born to this union, William and Donald,-who with their father .survive. She is also survived by two sisters, Mrs, Bessie Hannah of Ludington and Mrs. Lizzie Durham of Custer and a brother, William Conrad of Ypsilanti. A sister, Mrs. Mary Collins, passed away many years ago and Mrs. Polsen had made a home for three of their children, Gerald, Arthur and Mabel Collins, who remained with their aunt until they were able to care for themselves, About 14 nieces and nephews also survive. Mrs. Polsen had been a charter member of the Church of Christ, having united with the church nearly 50 years ago. She was an excellent Bible student and lived according to the teaching of Christ, her Master. She never spoke ill of her neighbor, bore the hardships of life uncomplainingly and was cheerful in her suffering. Her deeds were the unseen and unheard of type, but were manifested in the recipients. Humbleness and patience were her outstanding characteristics and she always did the best she could. Mrs, Polsen had taken nurse's training in the Ludington hospital before her marriage and later in life made much use of her knowledge, not only serving her immediate'vicinity, but, occasionally was called to distant places. She had been a valued correspondent of The Ludington Daily News for 10 or more years and discontinued the work less than a year ago owing to her ill health. She was exceptionally considerate of the "stranger within our gates" and on the other hand her home was much sought by her friends who were many. Mrs. Polsen was active socially to the last, having visited her sister, Mrs. Durham,' in Custer last Saturday and attending church services on Sunday. Not until five minutes before her passing did she manifest illness and was concious to the last. Her passing is a distinct loss to the community and the family is indeed. bereft. Funeral services will be conducted at 2 o'clock Friday afternoon, Nov. 10, at the Church of Christ in Summit.

An entertaining game invented and marketed by a Ludington resident, Stanley Benson, is receiving considerable attention over the nation, bringing new publicity lor the city as well as for its inventor. The game, known as "Recovery", was placed on the market a few weeks ago under a firm name of Benson Games, Ludington, Mich. Although not embodying the principles of any one plan, the game early received the attention of Dr. Francis E. Townsend and Mr. Benson was invited to go to Chicago to confer with Dr. Townsend regarding a marketing arrangement with Townsend clubs. As a result, considerable publicity has been accorded the game by the Townsend movement. Pictures of Ludington club No. 1 playing the game, as well as numerous stories regarding it, have appeared in the Townsend National Weekly in recent issues. In fact, Dr. Townsend, who played the game with Mr. Benson during the Chicago visit, has officially approved its use for Townsend clubs and has suggested "Recovery" nights as a form of club entertainment.

OIL-PLATING in your engine will lubricate before any oil can circulate. That's because the minute you start up with patented Conoco Germ Processed oil it makes OIL-PLATING "magnetize" to all inner engine surfaces, so that it .cannot drain down again. It cannot retire to the crankcase as you park the car. Like any other good plating, OIL-PLATING stays right where it's plated by Germ Process action—all over the working parts. They've "got on" their OIL-PLATING all the while you're indoors. They never "take off" their OIL-PLATING.
