Preiningef said that although most of the iteftis donated to the Hirtft Store are sold to low income people, some of them are given away. "I imagine we average making outright gifts to about 20 families a month," he said, "and, of course, we have always made our merchandise available to the schools.*' He explained that school representatives often come to the store to get items such as boots, shoes or coats for children who are unable to attend school because they don't have the proper clothing. Mrs. Gloria Witt manages the Thrift Store with the assistance of about 20 regular women volunteers. The volunteers reportedly spend about 125-175 hours per month sorting, cleaning, repairing, and displaying merchandise in the Thrift Store. The Rev. Mr. Preininger said more volunteers are needed. He said, "We do have one group of church women who are considering volunteering to take over repairing some of the donated clothes but even if they do, we could still use more help." Plans are also being made to open classes this fall to teach regular shoppers at the store to make their own alterations and repairs. DONATIONS to the Thrift Store may be left either at JCC or, if the center is closed, in the Salvation Army container just outside. JCC has an understanding with the Salvation Army that they may empty their container each morning and sort out and keep anything that may be used in the Thrift Store.

Young Girl Victim ROSEVILLE — The youngest daughter of a Roseville couple died Thursday in a barn fire at her home. Brenda Smith, 3, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Vance Smith, near Roseville, was pronounced dead at the scene by Warren County Coroner William Hoover Thursday at 4:30 p.m.. The girl, who had celebrated her third birthday Monday, was reportedly playing in the fam-j ily's barn with two of her sisters, Sandra, 10, and Barbara, 8, and a neighbor girl, Kathy Taylor,jBryan daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Warren Taylor, when the blaze swept through the hayloft.
