EEDWOOD FALLS, MINN. Much
feeling is being engendered over the

officers of the Eedwood County Rural

asked that the number of phones per
mitted be extended to five so fhey can

The project is opposed by the West

local men who regard the request of
the Twin City as only preliminary to
an application for a franchise to put
