A large basket of rayon and silk was made ready and about 8 pounds of carpet rags were torn and sewed These are to be sent to the veterans to be made into rag rugs. Those present ag1~eed that there were more interesting things to do than sewing carpet rags, but that the veterans would no doubt rather be doing something else than spend- , ing their time in the hospital. If we 'can help in this small way we are indeed glad to meet and do our part. The AuxiliaIT will gtady receive rags sewed, or unsewed if anyone has them to contribute. We have ordered an ssortment of rag rugs Anderson had a young coyote which he wished to raise as a pet and not eat ,his chickens. So he caught a weld hawk and put it in the pen with the coyote.

Sterling. - Taxpayers who are opposed to the issue of $198,000 bonds for a new light plant, voted recently by the close margin of only seven votes, are taking steps, through injuncUon proceedings to stop the issue of the bonds.
