C nnd others are Mr and Mrs Bob Kohlhaas and Dean Kohlhaas Betty Harig (Mrs Tom Genraty) and her family live not far away at Silver Springs, so it looks like a wonderful vacation. A v * Wh.en I called Emmajean Lighter for news, the little daughter Ann Renee answered the phone. She gave me the information that "mother is looking at some rceeipes."

Of the 21 relatives who gathered at Riverside, nine are deceased. » * » Saturday, December 15, set quite a record for Dr. Bray. In a,4, ho.irs he delivered five babies —three girls and two boys.
