t FRIDAY, APRIL 28, 194^ DISPATCH DEMOCRAT, URIAH, GAMFORNIA: PAGE FIVE ^ Willits News Notes \ WILUTS, AprU 17.—Although the elections are over, speculation still runs high. The question o£ the hfttit"'Is: Who will be our next mayor? Everyone has his opinion and his 'favorite councilman, but the outcome Is still anyone's guess. Tomorrow J night *.'may. settle that Issue and the more recent and unexpected vacancy, that of the chief of police. Our present chief, Larry Moore, has been' on the force for. 16 months of which 10 were spent as chief.'For the benefit of the eyebrow raisers there is absolutely nbthtngodoriferous about Moore's resilindtli /n. Neither the recent election'in ..'which- the present pi- Uca commissioner, A. G. Gray, nor any of; tte, newly elected city dads tirompt^d his action; it was merely a pfersohal choice of the. man himself: Kegardless,: the weelccnd found I grape- vines, buzzing and the . speculation thermometer rising fast. Tuesday night may conduct^' all pertinent .questions with the ' outgoing -councilmen turning over,' the business, portion of the meeting to newly-elects and there- 'Viy by .fidding,themselves of the re- '^f^- spoiisiblUty . of appointmg a new chief, or they may do it themselves. One fact is certain: Action must be taken before May 1, as that' is whieri Mpore's resignation [< is?tq become effective. Memlbers of the newly organized Rotary Club, "heard Franlc Harader, executive seciretary of the Mendocino County Tuberculosis Association, speak on the chest x-ray unit that will be in Willits next nibnth. Although not' a sei-v- ice organization. President Ellis named Troy Maness, Douglas Case and "Bill Vlacb to assist in getting all adults and high school children, at par^iit's request, to the mobile x-ray imit, which will be in Willits Thursday, May 6, from 6 to 9, p.m. and May 7, 2. to 5 and 6:30 to 7:30. p.m., both dates at the Yeterans' Memorial building. If you are wise enough to worry about your own well-being, make it a point to'be there. If you aren't interested in whether or not you haive the early stages of tuberculosis, cancer of the lung, or ab- riorinal heart or chest conditions, just ignore the opportunity and live,, or die, to regret it. •'^With the Willits police on the job'the'runaway boys, Clair Arro- wopd and Tom Courtray, had but a /scant .breather of housekeeping on their own, The boys, when taken into custody, cleared up a good percentage of petty thievery Wejdding In JuJife' and ransacking of automobiles. "''Ff ^The' sheriff's office took -over .Thursday, but may we again remind you, keep the doorsuof your \ car.lbbked, and never evei:'leave the keys in the ignition! P'% The visit of Mrs. Jane Akins With'her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Babcock, was marred b;^ the confinement in th^ Howard Memorial Hospital of her grandmother, Mrs. Annie Babcock. Too, Mrs. Akins also had to spend some tim 'e at the hospital. '•''\^it5i the pi;pspect of.being feted duriiig the Frontier Days celebration, reigning over the rodeo and having an all-paid 3-day trip to the. city by the Golden Gate, Joy Ann 'Wise of Willits, has made known her intentions ^nd her sponsor, the American Legion Post. At one time we were audacious enough to list the candidates and their group sponsors, but that was foolhardy. At latest reports aiiiiost all the girls listed have either decided against it or have been disqualified. Hereafter, no young lady's name will be mentioned here unless she is officially registered with Alan Sacry, fire department secretary. Let's see some more sombreros tossed out of the stands and into the field. . While on the coming celebration, at tlje American Legion meeting of April 13, plans were made whereby, with the Legion Auxiliary's assistance, a. brealrfast could be i given at the veterans' building, f Putting it that way sounds simple and uninteresting, but perk your ears up for the additional details. The ladies .'must feed approximately 100 guests and the occasion L\ is KNBC's broadcast from the spot! I ^This is in conjuction with the fire department's publicity of their July 4 celebration. If you have wanted to Ije on tfie radio, perhaps this ' Is your golden opportunity. The recently elected officers of the- Wpiits Business and Professional Women's Club held their first business meeting last -Tuesday. During the evening transportation chairman, Anita Swope, had an opportunity to be active as a great many planned to attend the convention in Ukiah on Saturday and Sunday. Mrs. Nan Ford is in San Francisco combining business and pleasure. •Val 'Valloni is in Santa Rosa and may continue to San Francisco. At a recent meeting of the 40/8 those attending from Willits, Fort Bragg and Uiah were privileged to have Don Clarke, department adjutant, and Mrs. Bernice Faas J as their guests. Mrs. Faas spoke J on Child Welfare. Prior to the I meeting all partook of a delicious * dinner. Culinary honors, to Mes- tt dames C. G. Elliott and Inland Cui-eton, Meriibers of the American Legion Auxiliary spent Fr;day evening pt the home of Mrs. Pf.uline Safford. Being a social night, the ladies formed an impromptu sewing circle and worked . on their rehab sewing quota. Like all sewing circles, it-was cliniaxed with tallr, refreshments and more talk., At their ijegulai. meeting the j Willits Lions' Club was honored '. to have, a group of Santa Rosa Lions present. Those up for the' evening were President. Ha>ykins and Past President Zurr,-and the Santa Rosa club's secretary and pESt president, Hampton. Hamps ton is also a candidate for governor of District 4B. The gentlemen also entertained the-group with a- resume of a,trip he, his wife and . brother toolt to Mexico. Unani -j mous opinion of the talk can be | summed up in one word. "Inter- j esting. I Another_interesting fact brought out during the meeting was the three films to be shown in lieu of the cancelled egg hunt. They/ are entitled Bar Z Badraan,-Tooter- , , • ^ ville Trolley and One Good Turn.- I These films will be shown on April •• •'' '•t^>v'- 25 in the high school auditorium . at 1 o'clock for the same children who would have participate in the egg hunt. However, a'"slight change in plans was made, whether it is so long since Easter that they fear confusing the children or because they refuse to start scrubbing dye off their hands again, we don't know. We do know they are not coloring any more eggs. Consequently no prize eggs. Nevertheless, the prizes will be awarded before the • movies. So, kiddies, quit wishing for the lucky egg and start hoping for the right bag.

Adams Lona Wipf, who has been confined to her bed for the last three home. Also calling on Potter relatives were Mr. and Mrs. Alvin and satisfactory dinner they held their t-egular meeting with Worthy Matron Ann Porteous and Worthy Patron Robert Camp presiding. Out-of-town guests were Deputy Grand Matron of District 11, Mrs. Grace Foster of Ukiah, arid Mr. and Mrs. Jordan of the Roseville chapter, Portland. Spring flowers were in evidence, not only in the beautifull decorated chapter room where daffodils and calla lilies were effectively arranged, but each guest was given an attractive coi:sage or boutonniere. Those escorted to the East and introduced were Mesdames Grace Foster, Una Keller, Anna Thompson, Dee Dorman, Irene Brans- cpmb, Blanche Robertson, Ethel Wimmer,' Orletta Nelson, Rose Steele, Ruth Lawrasen, Ellen Blaclc, Marian Rodgers, Myrtle Barciclow, Gladys Cave, Lily Branch, Birdie Anker, Ruth Waud, Edith Knot, past matrons. Past patrons were Messrs. Ira Branch, Fred Nelson, Clarence Dart, Ray Foster and Olin Samples. After highly impressive initiatory rites and the regular business meeting the present oJEficers formed a symbolic .ladder •whose rungs represented the climb to the honored offices of past matron and past patron. In conclusion the past matrons and patrons and the guests were presented with leis made of the five colors of the emblematic star. The evening was a smoothly functioning success with members,of each committee doing their part. Have you lost anything recently? Was it Tecentiy? Given up hopes of ever seeeing if- again? So did Mrs. Perle Haehl. Herloss was an etched bracelet with her name and Willits on it. It was purchased by her husband in Fort Bragg three years ago but had never -arrived here. Last Friday afternoon the postal department found the bracelet among the outgoing mail. Before you make any remarks about the postal system or employees, the bracelet was not mislaid. It had evidently been "mistook" by someone as it showed signs of heavy year. It certainly took someone's conscience a long time to react. Remember Frank F. Brewer, Jr., and family? He's the young 'man who left Willits for Alaska where he shipped out on a fishing schooner. He, his wife and one of their children were in Willits last week'^after an absence of a year. The other child was recuperating with her aunt in Ferndale where the Brewers had been visiting the week before. It was a nice treat for their local friends to again visit with "Fuzz" and family. A meeting of over 40 representatives of different service organizations Friday evening discussed the coming school bond elections. Dr. Dr. Schmidbauer, president of the Willits Union High School trustees, opened the meeting. Temporary chairman Mrs. John Kiraly, then explained that the purpose of the meeting, called by the P.-T.A. and Cooperative Nursery School, was a start toward the sum.mer bond election to provide necessary school rooms. She then turned the meeting over to Fred Leonard who explained the needs of the district. Inasmuch as the engineer ai;id architect had been over the school buildings just two days before, Mr. Leonard was unable to present exact figures. One thing is evident, Willits has been growing and should continue to do so and our see her at school very soon. The potluck supper at the church was well attended by a group of people who listened with Interest to a travelogue by Mrs. Lloyd Hughes, accompanied by pictures shown by her husband of their recent trip to Death Valley and the Grand Canyon. Preceding the talk Mrs. L. Bufford led in community singing. On the supper committee Were Mesdames E. A. Spotswood, James Nichols, Harold Marshall and Clara Hopper. Mr. and Mrs. Norman Greeri and son Bobby, and Mr. and Mrs. William Lane of El Cerrito were weekend guests at the R. R. Ingels ranch.

Dr. Cleland, with Mrs. Hughes and Mrs. Morrison, was at the grammar school Monday immunizing children for diphtheria and small pox and giving the tuberculin skin test. Mr. and Mrs. Harry Shimmin were over from their Yuba City home Sunday looking after property Potter. school buildings are inadequate to care for the school population. This applies to the elementary aijd high schools, but the grammar school.] has the dubious honor of being structurally unsound. Mr. Leonard also explained the Ganison act, whereby the district can vote bonds to remodel, (at present, it is believed that to remodel the grammar school would cost as much as the building is worth), abandon the building and put in temporary shelters, or vote bonds for a new building. The majority of those present appeared to be in favor of voting bonds for a new building, but the opposition came from the larger land owners, who apparently resent the small addition in taxes necessitated by such a bond issue. Under the rough estimate available, if your home and property are assessed at $3000 you would pay an additional $15 per year. That seems a nominal fee to have your children properly housed and instructed while in school. Inasmuch as the meeting was not called v/ith the purpose of selling anyone on the bond issue, those present made plans whereby each would assist in getting all eligible voters registered. Officers named for the task were Mrs. Charles Zanella, chairman, and Mrs. John Williams, secretary. Another meeting will be called in the near future. Mr. and Mrs. Ralph E.-nmons and children of HiUvilla were Mrs. Laurence Whittaker and daughter of Ukiah. Mr. and Mrs. Adams are driving a fine nevf Studebaker.
