Mr. Schildgen is a former State Highway Superintendent of dis trict No. l that includes Naupa tuck and several adjoining town ships. The heat wave of the past 10 days put a terrific crimp in Nau- gauick's supply of ice, the firm of r_>. Thurston's Sons, local manufacturer of ice, reports, with the demand here finally getting ahead of production. The Thurston firm has ice making equipment that in daily 24- hour operation turn out many" tons of ice, but even top production could not k'ocp pacs with Nauga- tucli's industrial and household demands. In addition to their own c-is- tomci-s, the Thurston firm wholesales to two other dealers and Xau- Ratuck's war plants use tons ot ice each day in manufacturing operations. The demand became so acute for ice here a few days ago that tho Thurston firm was finally forced to buy ice in Bridgeport, but it was indicated today that the ica conditions here arc rapidly returning- to normal under the cooler weather of the past few. days.
