A MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE THE LOGANSPORT PHAROS-TRIBUNE . A MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE Season's Greetings From The Classified Advertisers Country Store Remains In Hills of Missouri EASLEY, Mo. — Tucked away in son. Santa is present to distribute the rolling hills along the Missouri gifts. River south of Columbia is a general store, vintage 1890. A pot-bellied stove stands amid groceries, tools and bolts o£ cloth just as it did at the close of the last century when William G. Easley founded the store. The small community was named .for him. Descendants of the founder, Hall CHICKEN TROUBLE TOWNER, N. D.-A chicken fry at a farm home here got a dozen "Wonder Metal" Has One Big Drawback CHICAGO—Niobium, called new "wonder metal," is a wonder only within limits, the Illinois Institute of Technology reports. Like all other metals, it is good for certain things and not for otb ers, said David Levinson, super, visor of non-ferrous metallurgy at the Armour Research Foundation] These .qualities are promising for structural application in aircraft, missiles and nuclear development. It has a further advantage over such wonder metals as tungsten and molybdenum because it has a lower density, he added. Niobium's big fault, however, is that it has practically .no resist- ance to oxidation at high temperatures. Levinson said the problem now is to develop alloys which will resist oxidation or materials to coat niobium. More playing cards are made in Cincinnati, Ohio, than in any other place in the world. CREDIT UNION'S BIRTHDAY CHAMPAIGN, 111 — The University- of Illinois Employees Credit Union celebrated its 25th birthday recently. Established Oct. 26, 1932, it is the largest of its kind in thej country, with more than $1,700,000' in assets. Of that total, some $1,500,000 is in shares owned by 3,763 'members. teenagers in trouble with the law. j of IIT. County officials charged the boys! Levir.son said niobium has the Easley and his nephew, Raymond | n °use, Easley and his wife, operate the store today, without a change. It is open seven days a week— 12 hours a day—and Sunday is the busiest. On that day, the 30 townsfolk and persons from nearby communities arrive to shop and visit. No Hurry They find fresh foods and an ornate scale operated' by hand manipulation of little weights. The; scale bears a 1957 stamp of approval from the weights and measures division of the state department of agriculture. Bolts of bright material catch the eyes of women customers who are allowed to spread it out and take as long as they need to make up their minds. Mrs. Easley refuses to hurry them. The customer, she explained, must take the initiative. Farm tools and work clothes, even lanterns, are available to the [ men. And the children find jars of candy set invitingly near on worn counters. School supplies are the kind used a half century ago, not a slick sheet of paper among them. A TV Set Only one modern note can be seen in the store. A television set was brought in by the Easley family when that new-fangled invention first was produced. Most of the time it stands unused. As soon as the novelty wore off, customers returned to the circle of chairs around the stove and got back to exchanging community news and gossip. Hall Easley, patriarch of the 67- year-old store, recalls when the town of Easley was a stopover for showboats plying the Missouri River. He recalls performances aboard the Goldenrod, a showboat now tied up at the St. Louis levee for daily shows, and the old Wonderland. Now, the store provides the brightest bit of entertainment annually. The Easley family plays host to the customers at a Christmas party during the holiday sea- and girls with malicious mischief for butchering chickens in the advantage of a high melting point, good corrosion resistance, and generally good "nuclear properties." 35 Manual Types In Rhode Island KINGSTON, R. I.—Rhode Island,! the nation's smallest state, is home to at least' 35 species of mammals —not counting man. The University of Rhode Island's department of Zoology, aided by the state's fish and game office and the U. S.- Fish and Wildlife Service's rodent control branch, wade a two-year count, of noses. They came up with 1.500 specimens from 35 "families," including 116 shrews, a snow-shoe hare, four starnosed moles and 77 Norway rats. Most of the mammals found '3n the survey were mice, rabbits or woodchucks.
