The infant, a girl, had not been named yet. Incorporation papers for the "Kossuth County Broadcasting Co., Inc." were approved by Melyin Synhorst, secretary of state, in Des Moines Monday. Nothing is known locally about the firm, which was authorized to issue $50,000 in stock.

Eight students are enrolled in the course which consists of a class in retailing taught at school and Carlson is atsd paying 10 percent for the Lakota Farmers & Drovers and 15 percent for the Lakota Citizens Sayings. The former has now paid 50 percent and the Citizens Savings 40 percent. The day before Christmas was much bigger day in receipts at the state liquor store here than New Year's Eve. It is believed that many of the pre-Christmas sales were gifts. Manager Tom Sherman is often asked whether liquor can be given away, and he always replies, "As long as I don't know it." Under the law the gift problem is clouded, but it is believed that gifts to persons who would be entitled to buy liquor would not be questioned.
