Unoccupied Farm Home Near Sexton Destroyed Thursday, August 12, 1965 Algeria (la.) Upper Dot Motnei-5 When firemen arrived at the scene, the entire roof of the 2-story portion of the house was enveloped In flames - and within minutes the entire home was an inferno. Mrs, Mary Carroll and her daughter, Lucille, formerly lived In the house which was destroyed. They now live in a smaller home near the one burned down. According to Lucille, the fire-razed house had been empty for some time. However, some groceries, personal household items, a refrigerator, etc., owned by the women, were inside - and destroyed. Mrs. Carroll and Lucille have lived at the farm for about 20 years. Cause of the blaze was thought to be sparks from a fire about 200 feet northwest of the house. Men with heavy equipment were clear.ilng and grubbing old trees and stumps from an area badly damaged by a tornado a year ago. The trees, large branches and stumps had been set afire earlier Monday. There was no estimate of damage immediately after the fire. Lone Rock By Mrs. A. A.

END MODEL I SATURDAY MATINEET tflO i SPORTS ROADSTER This model ended a long tlmo ago, optional crank and all. But even then, the end of model clearance was an established tradition. The passing years have taught all of us a basic lesson In car buying economics. The best time of all to buy a new car is when the dealer is loaded with the last of this year's models and he is wondering where the first of next year's models are going to go. WE'RE LOADED - - WE'RE WONDERING?? . . . And you will save plenty on a big line up of new Oldsmobiles and Ramblers If you come In right now you're still liable to find just the right style, price, and color you have always wanted — unless you're the cranky type. Dau's will award a-new set of matching seat belts to the first person to correctly identify the year, make, and model of the Roadster In the picture. One guess per person. No phone calls please.
