10 QaJjSburg Reflister^Mo?!, Golesbura, lit, Monday, Sepf, 16, 1963 People Are Government, McLoskey Theme at GOP Meeting in Rosevi He Representative Robert T.i McLoskey, (R.-Ill.) from the local 19th Congressional District, was received enthusiastically by over 150 ladies of the Warren County Republican Women's Club when he spoke at the Saturday luncheon at the National Cafe in Roseville. Mrs. Channing Pratt, Wan-en County chairwoman, introduced Rep. McLoskey who counseled the women to become as interested as posible about our government, because the people of the U.S.A. are the federal government, and everyone should remember that. 'Right vs. Wrong' "People are always talking about who is right wing and left wing in politics," he said. "It is high time we quit talking this right and left business and get down to right and wrong. All this nation needs to straighten our trouble out is some good common sense. It is right that we should consider what is right in the eyes of God." Rep. McLoskey touched on foreign aid, and on civil rights, and more extensively on government spending. He concluded by advising the GOP women to prepare for vigorous campaign next year to elect the right people to offices in our government, and that he was sure the Republican women of Warren County are going to do their part. Preceding the luncheon Mrs., Pearl Lincoln offered the Blessing and Mrs. George Pierce led the pledge of allegiance. Tells of Anniversary Mrs. Everett Bowman, president of the club, opened the meeting by telling of her recent attendance at the event recently held, celebrating the 25th anniversary of the founding in Chicago of the National Federation of Republican Women. Mrs. Donald Watt, treasurer, gave the yearly report, and Mrs. Clarence Gittings, secretary, read the minutes of the last meeting.

Investigation by fire authorities showed that both structures were slightly damaged as was indicated by the telephone caller. Authorities surmised that the damage could have been caused by either a blow torch or a fusee, a color flare used as a railroad signal. Company officials and fire authorities checked throughout the plant in search of a bomb. Although nothing was found the search is continuing. Walter Parlier, deputy state fire marshal, is checking with local authorities into the matter. Prior to the bomb scare, a series of events at the plant seem to indicate that someone has a grievance against the company, authorities believe. A fire, at the company Sept. 9 was investigated for arson. At this time no evidence could be found that would indicate arson. That same morning John Sheridan, a local contractor, had his men cover the burned out area with a plastic material to keep out the rain until the roof could be repaired. When the carpenters arrived Sept. 10 to repair the roof, they found that a fire had been started in the plastic material. Fire Chief Dale Moore said the evidence of a cardboard box which had contained the plastic, some scrap lumber and scrap roofing indicated that these materials were probably used to start the fire. Some of the tar roofing and the plastic material were melted. That same night fire authorities were informed of a fire which occurred in a clay storage room at the company. Officials said this blaze apparently was started by some paper' bags and oil. The only damage done was slight scorching to the side of the building. Moore said through the cooperation of the company, an around- the-clock watch of the premises was organized. During the watch, conducted for six days, no suspicious persons appeared on the scene.
