According to General's Charles Town district manager, Marvin A. Brooks, "It is of the utmost im- portance for customers desiring additional listings or changes in their present listings to contact our local business office as soon as possible. "The closing date for directory material has been set for July 21, after which no further changes or additions will be possible," he said. Brooks also pointed out that it would be advisable for business customers who are considering installing new or changed facili- ties within the near future to con tact the company prior to July 21 and plan to have their facilities coordinated with the new direct- Ory. "Correct initials, names and axi. dresses are necessary to assure complete and adequate represent- ation in the directory," Brooks said. "It is surprising how often the directory is turned to for such information, as well as telephone numbers. Subsribers should call the business office if any changes are to be made in their listings," on the Robert French farm, loca- ted about four miles southwest of Charles Town Thursday night.
