Blaze Damages Former Fire Station 1V/r /~VAT1\*/-\TTm»» _. . Ki ~S , , ' MONMOUTH —Firemen answered an alarm Monday at 7:36 p.m. to their old headquarters, the former fire station at 109 E. First Ave. Shortly after the first alarm sounded, a call was made for volunteers. The old station, now owned by Homer Hoyt, had been converted into three business establishments, housing the Illinois Veterans Commission, Lincoln Insurance Agency and Hoyt's Refgrigeration Service. Fire Chief Dale Moore said the fire apparently started beside a cabinet on the south wall of the restroom. It burned up the wall and through the ceiling to the second floor. However, swift work by firemen and volunteers kept the fire from spreading through to the roof and possibly causing more damage to nearby buildings. Cause of the fire was undetermined and still being investigated. Moore said that there was no estimate as to the amount of damage to Hoyt's Refrigeration Service, but there would be only minor smoke and water damage to the other two offices.

The American Food for Peace Council may be drawn into a spreading debate over possible exports of American wheat to the Soviet Union. The council is a citizens group which advises administration of- I ficials on policy in the government's Foocl-for-peace program, the use of American surplus foods to help needy people and to promote economic development abroad.
