Somehow, in the short span of an hour, before parade time, Supt. Rose Farrell and her assistants manage to sort the dogs, mutts, coons, cats, kids, rabbits and bikes into their proper classes, and to choose ribbon winners without ruffling any children's, parents', or animals' feelings. Top entries this year included (top to bottom): Peg, Rob and Susan Crim ... John and Diane Drake with winning dogs in the pet show ... a grand assortment of Brown, Lodigiani, and other winning children, with their champ costumes or bikes . . . and the entire cast of Peter Pan, composed of Maders, Esches, Rogers and Tulls.

She said he had been working on one of the storage tanks referred to in the trade as, "flat bottoms"; they are not as high as water towers.

City Wil Obtain Them Householders who want to beautify their property with young trees will soon have an excellent opportunity to do so: The city will buy, plant and guy up new trees on lawn extensions, if owners will undertake to water them. The city will also make available low cost young trees to property owners who wish to buy them. The subject was discussed at Council meeting Monday night by Administrator Mike Strait, who has had the project in. mind for some time. Any trees placed on lawn extensions would be paid for by the city, he said, and would be placed far enough back so that they would not be damaged by future widening of the street, if any. But city crews are not large enough to undertake watering of a large number, of^ trees once pr twice a week,-as needed. Property owners would be asked to care for the trees themselves once planting was completed. In the other half of the two-pronged offer, if enough residents are interested, the city will buy the trees in large numbers to obtain lower cost, and will pass on the savings to owners who want to buy young trees and plant them in back yards or elsewhere. This can only be done "if enough people are interested", Strait said. ' Anyone interested in either plan or both is asked to call City Hall. Trees available include Norway and sugar maples, seedless green ash, sycamores, honey locusts, and others. TOWNSHIP MEET SET Saline Township Board will meet at 8:30 p.m. Monday at the Township Hall.
