A membership drive is being conducted in Ringgold county by members of the Ringgold County Hospital Auxiliary. The dues of
one dollar per year are being designated towards the purchase of a second incubator for the county hospital, which is
greatly needed. Mrs. C. M. CAMP is serving as town chairman.
The Mount Ayr Community school board of education voted to close the three remaining rual schools in the county: two in
Lotts Creek Township and one in Poe Township. The savings in the operation of the three schools will offset the amount
in salary increases. Resignations, which were submitted by Mrs. Walter E. ROBERTS, instrumental music instructor, and
Mrs. W. B. BUELL, vocal music instructor, were accepted by the board. Mrs. ROBERTS and Mrs. BUELL are serving the grade
schools in the towns of Tingley, Ellston, Beaconsfield, Delphos, Maloy and Redding.
A fire, which occurred Saturday afternoon in Anthony's department store, caused an estimated damage of $200 to window fixtures
and wiring. The blaze, discovered about 1:30 p.m. in a stockroom beneath an upstairs office by Glendon SMITH, an employee,
was quickly extinguished by members of the Mount Ayr Volunteer Fire Department. Customers in the store at the time cooperated
with employees in covering merchandise to prevent smoke damage. Art SCHMIDT serves as manager of the store.
