Carroll T E Sondrol, Jr., Edward Boyle and H. H. Crane are the committee appointed by W. H. Ward, president °i t, f ear Lake Commercial club, to work for the building of a new postoffice in Clear Lake according to an announcement Saturday. At a meeting of the club held recently the members suggested that such a committee be appointed to make every effort to obtain a Federal building at an early date. The House appropriations committee at Washington, f - -., last week approved a building project which included an item of $70,000 for a postoffice building at Clear Lake and it beheved that the same may be obtained if residents put forth the necessary effort and show proper interest. Handling of the large amount of mail received at Clear Lake during the summer season is a problem in the quarters now used by the postoffice department and more commodious quarters would facilitate distribution to the annual visitors. Clear Lake residents also believe that a proper federal auilding will be an added attraction to visitors. Clear Lake Calendar Sunday--Congo club, Congregational church, 6:30 o'clock.
