BUY EARLY IN THE DAT
In compliance with the resolution
adopted at the last meeting of the
Retail Grocers Association, the re
tall groceries of our town have de
cided to close their places of busi
ness at 7 p. m., instead of 8 p. m.,
This is in accordance with the
government's request to eliminate
the neceslity 'for Itsing lights as
much as possible. Everyone is alive
to the fact that each little act
counts in the great matter of win
ning the war and no one should re
fuse to co-operate with the grocers
in this effort. Therefore let each
person decide to visit the grocery
before 7 p. m. and also to arrange
to have their orders sent in early
in the day, so that the retailers and
their clerks can have an extra hour
of daylight free from business cares.
