"Are you using your brass knuckles tonight?" Questions such as these shocked citizens of Willits last Saturday night. They were asked by rhem­ bers of the Methodist Guild who were on a scavanger hunt' for items such as these. The Carl Friedricksons, the Ted Mat.9ons arid the Peter Recagnbs enjoyed a box of candy as an award for locating all the items on their list. The hunt itself was the climax of a successful evening of feasting on a full course potluck dinner at the Methodist <church. The ladies'of the same organization met on March 11 and formii-- lated plans for a party on April 2 for the group of Camp Fire Girls they sponsor. Sounds like fun. Over 400 enthusiastic fans cheered and heckled the donk ey basketball game last Monday night. The final whistle found the Bertains victorious over Frankie & Johnny, while time Was called on the preliminary game at the third quarter, so no definite victors can be named. Confidentially, our money goes on the donkeys in both games. There is now, officially, a Willits Rifle & Pistol Club. Sixteen members met on March 13 and adopted the, by-laws of the National Riflemens' Association and elected officers: Lee' Wise, president; Ken 'Roby, vice president; Harry Kister, secretary-treasurer; executive range ' oflticer, George Petersen,- and chief instructor, Gordon Hill.

How does it feel, Gail, to be a young lady of nine whole years? Usually rain is p detriment to a cake sale, but with the serving of a hunk of cake and a cuppa coffee, in addition-to the regular selling of cake, the Horsemen Association's cake sales can be written off as a definite -sucess.
