PAGE 5 THE HARRISON SUN and SIOUX COUNTY NEWS Harrison, Nebr. June 22, 1961 Just HODGE PODGE by BONNY Touche, Jim Griffith. Knew I shouldn't have let you read the column before it was printed.

Think everyone is of the same mind in hoping that we never have any occasion to use that equipment, but it's a good feeling to know that if we need it--it's ready. I think everyone has put up with my moving around in fine stead, and I'd like to thank you for not getting impatient while I found a place to settle. Have one favor to ask though. When calling in news, would you please use the Harrison Sun number (7651). It takes time to get everything written down and if we are talking on the Sun phone, the Extension Office line will be open.

Would like to remind you again, too, that the earlier you can call things in the better it is for me and the folks in Lusk. Relieves the pile-up on Monday. Lots of folks have asked me how I like my job(s) and in discussing all the advantages I forgot to mention the best thingthat good pepermint glue on the Harrison Sun envelopes!
