Ag Croup Organizes At Chamber Two of Daniel’s Problems Over, Bills Ready for Pen No lacrease In Whoopers rri • n Ihis season EVIDENCE SWALLOWED BY WOMAN Dear Editor: As the Christmas Seal campaign, sponsored by the Brazos County Tuberculosis Associa- | tion, draws to a close. I would like to take this means of thank| ing all who helped in any way | on the drive. We had over 150 volunteers who worked in some way in getting out the seal letters and reminders, I appreciate the fine publicity given the campaign by the newspaper, the radio and television stations. It helped a great deal in making the campaign a success. I found the people of the community most cooperative and interested in the work of the TB Association. I would especially like to give public recognition to the two auditors, Mrs. R P. Marstellar and Mrs. J, P, Abbott, for thej time they spent in counting the! returns. They came every morning for six weeks to open the mail and count the money received. To those of you who have not sent in your gift for the I Christmas Seals it isn’t too 'ate to do so now. Your TB Association needs more funds *o carry on the services which pro- j tect the community.

Police said she admitted she had forged her father's signature on the note and had been unable to pay it off. The court gave her eight months in jail for fraud.
