Her good-natured grin las been missing from the window ince February 6 and will not re- urri for several more days. Un- ortunately, though, Margaret is lot enjoying herself, as the leave vas necessitated by illness. District Deputy President Vada Collier was warmly received on ler official visit to the Lagunita lebekah Lodge on wjijich occasion ihe was presented ^ with a gold ay pin from lodge members in (frep^ation^ of' her support and iStruction. As a card of thanks, rs.'ColUer. retaliated with an nitial pin to each member of her scort team and a hankie to her t d officers, ictor Raymond Babcock has taken a 2-day breather. We don't know where he is, but can safely say it is one of his too-inffegiient rests. What makes that man run? Vitamin A, g, D or what? Leaving' Willits to make their homes in otljer places are Mr. arid Mrs. Rene Belio, who plan to reside in Lo? Angeles, and Mrs. George Balli^ and son, who will soon be "lostv in the fog of San Franci.<ico. ; Those that left temporarily but are glad to return are Tony Mur- rido, who last Thursday went to Boonville; Mr. and Mrs. Ward Yoimg, who were in San Francisco, as were the Logan Ankers. The John Yeagers are back from southern California and Mexico, while Roberta Poncia is back from Santa Rosa where she \yas caring for her sister, who has been ill. Too, Mrs. Mamie Knight is due baeic in Willits, where she will } make her permanent home on ; North street. She, if you will re- I caU, originally owned Knight's Furniture, and since selling put has been traveling all over tlie \ continent visiting friends and rela- • Jjkes. TGeorge Newhall, Vern lies, Louis Zanella and two of Newhall's ranch hands, plus some hounds. took to the wilds and returned with four, coons Ipsf week. Good hunting, fell'ows^r is it the dogs that deserve thp credit? A jury of eight men, W. D. Ford, Ray Johnson, Dick Baechtel, Russell Jones, Fred Bobbitt, Floyd Criger, T. H, Dill ancl Charles Gilbert; and four women, Mrs. Esther Elliott, Jennie Haselswerdt, Gladys Eberhardt and Mrs. F.'M. Amsworth, found Howard Overy of Willits guilty of drunk driving. Although it took a good five hours to present the testimony, the verdict was returned in 40 minutes. However, as the case now stands, Overy is out on $350' bail. His attorneys, A. G. Lyons and Paul Porterfield, intend to appeal from the verdict of the jury. The shindig scheduled for; Thursday night for the Boy Scouts was held as planned, even though the troop is sponsored by the Lifans' Club. The highlight of the eve-; ning, to some, was the "auction-^ ing" of the quilt, made entirely; of Lions Club members' ties. It: was won by, of all people, Wil-; ham Riley, Lions CIUID president.^ "Bill" immediately returned the: quilt 'M vhu Lions Club, to be resold at another time. To .some of the 80 people present, the speeches by Patrolman Fred Hamilton,^ senior patrOl leader; Gene Groin,, Mr. Malsbury and Dick Goldsbury were the main features. To still others the presentation of the troop charter to-William Riley by Ken Hlckenbottom, field executive,*-! could have taken the spotlight. But to five*" new rriembers, ' who were taken into the troop, receipt of the tenderfoot badges were if. All this, and a delicious potluck dinner, too. Notice to the dancing pubUc of 'Willits and vicinity, also, the civicminded: The Willits Fire Department is sponsoring a dance on' March 27 at the Willits"'Park Pavilion. Pacini and his Riffs will furnish the music, and' the mphey made ori the affair will help fur^ nish the city park \yith a sprinkler system and whatever (and if there is any it depends on each' of! us) is left oyer will go toward installing outdoor iequipment; siyipgs, slides, etc., for the city's small fry. Let's dance! Rita Moore, Chief of Police Larry'Mooi'e's wife, has purchaseji thfe photographic 'equipment of the Happy Pho^o Shop and annpuiices she y/ill be.opeh for business soprt. More details at a latejr date. Jobs Daughters held a "Fathers' Day" last Thursday to which fathers and Masons were inyited. The members" Of Jobs Baughters divided intp two. teams, one with Jea'nnie' Donaldson 'as leader, and the other under Evelyn Hecken- ddrf. 'Then they began inviting in earnest, as the team with the most guests present did not have to do dishes. Here's hoping the girls on Miss Heckendprf's team had plenty of haiid lo.tiqn handy. Homemade cake aiid Coffee as v/ell as. entertainment, were seryed by tlie lassies. Too, some oJE the guests helped to entertain. As each one entered they were given a number and later, at *a drSiwing, the numbers . belonging to Sidney Black and Bill Ford of WiUits lodge and Austin Gray of Covelo lodge were drawn. They were then lined against one wall while across the room lay three mysterious packages, very well wrapped. The object was to .see which of the trip could cross tbe roOm, opeii the package, don what was therein and return to their original station. Ford won, but it would take more than a few articles of feminine clothing tp pass him off as a lady. Biit then, with the new look, it is really quite difficult to tell, anyway. Besides the girls and their guest, the guardians, Mrs. Ellen Black and Bob Camp, were present as were the counselors, Mrs. George Daskam, Mrs. Jayne Harrah, Mrs. Evelyn Ruediger and Mrs. Dora Donaldson. The Willits political kettle was kept simmering, and at one time last Wednesday, at the second Citizens Committee meeting, it carne to a slow boil. We are still waiting for the people who have been criticizing the city council to bring it to a fast boil, and '4 all the woudl-be candidates, who h^ve taken out nomination papers, bring them back, the sizzling of the pot will be heard as far as Ukiah and points south. With a dozen papers but that would mean three men for each post, or strong coiripeti- tion for the first time in a long time. Someone suggested ' that a woman be run for the council. If she did, she might surprise the eyebrow lifters, not only by running and winning; but by her fair- mindedness. As it is, we sit impatiently back and ;«ait for the deadline to see whose hp.ts will be in the ring with the one belonging to William J. Malsbury. Let's go! Wiliits has made enough uncomplimentary news. Lets' give them something good to say. WILLITS, Feb. 25.~The American Legion Auxiliary combined business with pleasure last 'Friday night at Mrs. Alicia Cureton's house. The members took advantage of their social meeting to start their sewing quota. The sewing is part of their rehabilitation program with the garments and articles made being sent to veterans' hospitals requiring them. No business was conducted other than to ascertain that the dance latply sponsorpd by the pir- ganization wos a success and plaiis wer laid whereby msmpp^ wji<) ai^e notpaid Up'C^jpuld be'^iveri il^n opjDortuiiity to do'sb.'^ '''* Friday ij.ight also fpui}d otiiej- lai^fps ;^ctiy^,,,:jfi,(i ,|heVhp^ Qharlotte Jiuljcher ^,jBMrpi:>e bap slipwer wag .giyen in honor of Mr,:^.

However, the rnatinee was called off as the furnace refused, to cooperate, and even though spring is just around the corner, it \yould have beeii inpbsSible to see the'riniovie-in comfort without the benefit of the furnace heat. Lpaying sunny 'Willits for the siinny south, Pplms Springs or thereaboiits, are,Mr. and Mrs. A. G. Lyons. The trip is to furnish Mr; Lyons with,a opportunity to irecu- perate after his recent illness,, sbniething W'mts couldn't do, as. there Is' seldomly a quiet nidmerit in our little town. To bear that statement out: Mrs. Viola Watson was arrested the past week for being drunk, and paid a $2!5 fine. She is the same Viola Watson who recently was taken into custody for shashing her husband, ' but as charges' werp not pressed the case was dropped. Too, George O. Evans was picked up JEor being drunk, while Herbert R. Gamble of Willits'^nd Paul E. Eaton of Laytonyilie each paid,a $200 fine for drunk driving. Won't some people ever learn that gasoline and liquor will never mix? Over the long weekend, Walter She'eler, who is attending Santa 'Rosa Junior College, visited 'With ^eliool^iate Kenneth Ford. Another visitor ja Willits was Floyd R. Allen. He, however, was nobody's guest and his visit was made'known'only when he was picked up for vagrancy. , Members of the chamber of cprn- metce, city councilmen and other civic minded citizens of W'H'ts, Port Bragg and TJkiah, as well as the supervisors of Districts 1, 2, 3 and 4,. met on February 21. TJie purpose of the mpeting, oyer which Bill Whitney presided, wasto'ppn- deir a solution to the WilUts-Fort Bragg rbad, which has been receiving more than its share of notoriety lately. Anicmgst the 45 attending were the four supervisors previously mentioned, R'ussel Cummings, county suveyor; Walter Saridelin, highway cpmmissioner, and Walter Severance, road cornmissioner of Mendocino county. Not too many decisions were reached, but is was coiiuiuded that of the $158,000 al- loted toward improving the rbad, approximately $151,000 would bp needed to build a concrete bridge over James creek and to fix l.p miles of road at the Fort Hragg end. However, citizens, dontdis- pair, as it wps brought out that there is the possibility that the complete toad would be worked over within three years. And those who have drivpn the road will be pleased' to learij that any^jnoney left jbr raised in the near futtife will be used to improve the portion known as 7-inile-hill. One of the newest businessmen in toVvn is William W. Denton; who has leased Nbrthern 'Wood Pro-: ducts for six rhorith's, with optjon to' buy. Welcome, Mr. Denton aiid keep the lumber coming, for judging from the tents and shacks still mushrooming throughout the vicinity of Willits, lumber is sorely needed.

Another candidate for city council has made public his intentions. The gentlemari is Charlie Ford, and his hat now lies in the Willits political ring with that of Wilham J. Malsbury. Although the old saying of "two's company" may be true in some instances, here all one notices is the vast emptiness that surrounds the two lonesome pieces of head gear. Of cp'urse, deadline for nomination papers is still a week off, but nevertheless, the sooner they are in, fellows, the longer tjie period pf time the citizens hpve to realize all reasons why YOU should be councilman.
