Conversation turned on being handled bv Cree. No chairmen the fur-backed trout of years before have been appointed for Essex, La - - moille, Grand Isle counties as the Wo - mens Field Army, during their cur- rent membership and education drive, and listeners to the conversation spread the legend abroad. It trav eled like bad news and spread all over the civilized world and even into New; Hampshire. After a while the news-! papers got sick of it and the thing died out and some folks thought it was just a rumor, but it is now alive . Another of the fur-backed trout has been caught. Rumor has it that it was taken by a man named Richardson, fishing through the ice. The fish was duly photographed and the photographs are in circulation. There is even one in Bennington, brought home last week by Shir Rawson, who had been up to his former home and while ...o there went fishing, was presented a photographed Beaver Trout and i came home. Again the story is on the move. A gentleman from Connecticut wants a dozpn beaver trout skins to make a pair of mittens and a trout enthusiast out in Oklahoma wants to get a little breeding stock. Ginger doesnt know much about it and is inclined to be suspicious like the small boy who told 0 m V, A V MU V 1,4 4 V Wl I U A A M Y T A V k V A M his Sunday school teacher that he didnt believe that an Enistle was the wife of an Apostle. We, therefore, refer the seekers after truth to the following from the Newport Express: The photograph produced by Harry Richardson to augment Wendell La-limes story on the Memphremagog fur-bearing trout, apparently wasnt proof enough for many curious fishermen, but now Richardson has in his possession the real McCoy an actual mount of the rare specimen which today is on display in the show window of the Victory Auto Store on Main street. The fish may be exhibited today only so, if you dont believe the yarn about fur-bearing fish caught through the ice, hurry down to the Victor Auto store and see for yourself. Richardson may be persuaded to exhibit the fish another day, but may not risk leaving it too long in Gen.

Ladd, in Montpel- Pillows and upholstery cushion inner casings filled with feathers will cost an average of one-third less under new OPA dollar and cent ceiling prices, Ladd announced. Consumers will soon have a ready check on pillow and cushion ceiling j prices, he said, since manufacturers are required to pre-ticket their mer-chandise with established ceiling prices on goods shipped after April 28th. , Persons advertising used passenger automobiles for sale in newspapers and other publications are now required to include in the advertisement the make of the car, model year, the model body type, the sellers offering price and the statement that the price is within OPA ceiling," Ladd declared. Legal OPA ceiling prices may be obtained from local War Price and Rationing hoards. Ladd explained that this requirement becomes effective May 9th and is designed to aid in the enforcement of price control on used cars. According to the price officer, there are several changes in the regulation governing used car prices. For example, used passenger cars of model year 1925 and earlier are exempted from price control because these cars have recently been moving at well below ceiling prices. Specific record-keeping requirements have been established for used passenger car dealers; there has been a slight modification of warranty repair and Kennison of Irasburg, Pfc.
