If You Have Electrical Problems Call Us the American Flag, it may be noted that a flag, one of these hoisted over the Capitol, Washington, D.C., flies daily, weather permitting, at the local store. If the owner is not there when the store opens for business, a neighbor assumes the duty of putting it in its proper place. It might be added that the late General Pleas B. Rogers noticed that the mast used at first was not a regulation one and he immediately ordered one from an Army supply source in New York. A stranger seeing the flag asked if the store served as a Post Office. This may not be true in an official way but many are the stamps sold here and money order applications filled out as well as mail left for our congenial postman, Keith Morriss, to collect. In winter, when weather does not permit his daily delivery, this is also a distributing point for such. Mr. Thomas Penwell, chairman of the collection of paper for the local church, announces that it would be a great help and more convenient if those bringing paper to the building would please tie the bundles two ways, securing the string or rope at top and bottom centers placing the bundles in ranks in the building. The paper drives do play an important part in the church woz'k but the above requests would help those who take care of this project.
