The program was greatly enjoyed and some $50 or $60 was reported cleared. Like many programs of this type, where local groups are trying hard to raise some money, and do all the advance work of ticket selling, it seems that the WHO gang had to have a guaranteed amount before they would appear, nnd then also took a cut of the gate proceeds.

Visited in town last Wednesday Homebuilders Suggestion of the Week COMFORTABLE ENGLISH COTTAGE Four Room*, Dinette and Bath DESIGN N-3 SMALL, compact home that's as appealing both in artistry and comfort as many more pretentious and higher priced ones. Built on English lines, this home is very desirable from an economy standpoint, too. It's very light and cheery throughout and has ample closet space. The rooms are well proportioned. The front door opens into a vestibule. A second door opens on the side of the house into the kitchen. There are built-in cabinets in the kitchen; a built- in linen closet in the hall to the bedrooms. Clever and varied use of stucco, rustic siding and half timber gives the house an unusually pleasing exterior. The living room has something that everyone likes... a window seat.
