New Ratings v Come In July The Alma postoffiee has the prom ise of again becoming a first class office after July 1, 1922, it became known the first of the week, as the receipts of the office have every in dication .this year of exceeding the $40,000 worth of business required for a first class office. Two years ago Alma's postoffiee frcra January 1 to January 1, exceed ed $40,000 worth of business and the following July became a first class office. ' Last year from January 1 to January 1, the receipts of the office fell $3,600 below the amount required fer a first class office and on July 1 of this year the ranking of the office fell,' and with the lower ranking of the office $200 was lopped off from the. salary of the postmaster, making the office one that paid $3,000, which it is doing at the present time. At the present time, and in fact since the first of the year, the post office has had it receipts growing so that it is certain to make up for the $3,600 which it fell short last year, and will have considerable to spare it? .returning to a first class office. It vtht. during the last three months of last year that the receipts of the office fell down. During October and November of this year they have ex ceeded last year's business for those ffcorrths ;to such an extent that it will mtjre than make up last year's short age, On -the gum required for-a first class office. The increase over last year is expected to be. approximate ly 85 pet cent. t"he' rating of the first class office dou n6t come with the close of the year in which the business exceeds $40,000,; but oti:th July 1 following ip, it will not be until next July thit'the office will again be rated as a" first. class postoffiee. At that time the salary of the postmaster will be increased $200, to $3,200, and the as sistant postmaster will receive a $50 boost. -.In this connection it might be in teresting to note that M. Stuckey, the assistant postmaster, said Tues day that it was the desire of the postoffiee officials here to have peo ple bring complaints to either the postmaster or the assistant when they .have them to make. In event that complaints are made to the proper source, so that full knowledge of such complaints can be secured, every effort will be made to rectify them, he said. The postoffiee offic ials are also willing to receive sug gestions that might aid in bettering the service here, he stated. LAY CONCRETE ON 525 FEET PAVING BEING BUILT FROM REPUBLIC AVE. TO WHEEL PLANT. Because of the fact that during the greater part . of last winter, Mar quette avenue was almost impassable for.the loads to and from the North ern; Whel Company, steps . to correct this conditionare now '.under way by the. city officials, which promise to give the factbry a' good outlet to Re public avenue. Atthe pre'sent ' time a concrete pavement from Republic avenue, east to the factory, a' distance of 525 feet ia being constructed. The paving is being laid only eight feet wide. This street, however, is little traveled, ex cept for the traffic to. and from the factory and it is felt that the eight foot width will be sufficient for the purpose, as it will be very seldom that two teams or trucks will meet on the single block. The Northern Wheel Company of ficials some time ago pointed out the condition to the city officials, indicat ing to them the much greater cost of moving the products of the company over the poor road in this, block. The construction of the eight foot span of paving on Marquette avenue will give the company a fine outlet to Rep.ublic avneue and down this well graveled street to the paving on Michigan avenue. , Verne Calkins returned Wednesday morning from his hunting trip.

All ministers in the state will be re quested by personal letter to give some attention on that day to the fight against tuberculosis. The sale of Christmas seals will begin on Thanksgiving Day, and by the. time the seal sale Sunday comes most com munities in the state 'will' be in' the thick-of the work. . An attempt will be made to have some four thousand pastors in Michi gan call the attention their congre gatioris to the health campaign for the purpose of which the seal sale is conducted. . Many ministers have al ready given assurance to the Michi gan Tuberculosis association that they will observe the day. Almost every pastor in the state has a direct interest in the tubercu losis campaign because there is no minister who has been in the work for any length of time who has not been called upon to pronounce funeral ser mons over tuberculosis victims whose lives might easily have been saved if the necessary means had been brought to bear. phi mm AT WRIGHT HALL EXCELLENT REPAST SERVED; PROGRAM ENJOYED IN CLOW OF OPEN FIRE. The annual banquet of Phi Pfii Al pha was held in the Wright Hall din ing room last Saturday evening. The affair proved to be all the enthusias tic Phis expected and hoped for.

There were few frills, but a real solid square meal that made the boys think of home and mother's cooking. Michigan Hen Near The Worldfs Record Coming within eight eggs of the World's record for her breed, and within twelve eggs of the "all-breeds" record, Mary Ann II, a Barred Rock hen owned by the Michigan Agricul tural College, has just completed a year's egg production which has won her a lasting place in the poultry Hall of Fame. Mary Ann laid the remarkable total of 302 eggs between Nov. 16, 1920 and Nov. 15, 1921. Proof that "blood will tell'' is given by the fact that Mary Ann II has four sisters who produced between 200 and 250 eggs last year. She is the daugh ter of Mary Ann I, the founder of the now famous strain of Barred Rocks owned at M. A. C. The "Ann" family are to be on dis play for . class room work during a special Poultry Short Course which opens at the College on November 28 and runs for four weeks. "During the short course we will show how to raise hens capable' of making such records, as' well' as' how to handle them to make : the-records possible," says ' VV. E. Newlins, As sistant Professor of Poultry at M. A. C; , An advanced Poultry Husbandry course is to be given at the College" in January, according to the Winter Short Course program. The work pf both courses is designed for the prac tical man who is actually engaged, or expects to engage in poultry raising. MASONS GO TO SAGINAW About 75 members of Alma lodge No. 244, F. & A.

The Zeta Sigma Literary Society held its thirty-third annual banquet in the I.O.O.F. hall Saturday even iur. November li'th. Many Alumni ai d fritr.ds. as well as the active members of the .society were present at this 'social function which yearl marks the zenith of social endeavor of the society. At six o'clock in the evening, .ojplcs began to gather in the lodge i. oms of the I. O. (). F. hall. With out delay they were assembled in a lire according to their position in the guest list of the program, and as (ialkigher's live-piece orchestra struck up lively march, they were led into the banquet room by President and Mrs. II. M. Crooks. The decorations for the room were of the simplest sort and yet they were sufficient to greet the observer with the pleasant est sensations. The long tables, cov ered with white linen and set with glittering silver reminded one of the j great essential ot a banquet; glimpses of society and Alma colors on ban ners and streamers released pent up enthusiasm for an event which an 'ticii.ation had stored up.

At the conclusion of the programme, the guests and the patronesses, Mrs. Kathevine Foster Roberts, Dean of Women, and Mrs. Harry Means Crooks, were taken to the college gymnasium where dancing was en joyed until eleven-thirty. As usual, everyone enjoyed the eta Sigma Banquet, for to those really interested in the activities of a society there is no re-awakening of acquaintances, no spirit of interest, of friendliness, nor ot good fellovhip like that spirit which is shown at Zcta Sigma's Annual Banquet. V.f .. t ETA SGMA HAS BANQUET WELLT HROUCH ROCK STRATA AT 655 FEET IT IS EXPECTED THAT THE NEW WELL WORK WILL CONTINUE TO CHEATER DEPTH The Exploration Work Is Valuable Alma's new well is now down to a depth of r.").r) feet, approximately the last 200 feet of the well having been diilled through rock, and in the strata of ground beneath the rock, the ground caved to such an extent that it is expected that a pipe will be sunk inside of the drill hole to the present depth and the well put down deeper. One big reason for desiring to con tinue the well to a further depth is the fact that the city officials art anxious to ascertain whether or not water may be secured at a deeper point. . The solution of this vexinj. question at the present time, with the well at its present depth, can be made at small additional cost as compared with the sinking of a new well at some future period, and then if water is not located in sufficient quantities for a larger Almj, force a large expenditure for other means of securing water. If it is ascertained that plenty of' water can be secured at a deeper strata it will mean that the city will have a means of furnishing an abund ance of water for years to come for the people of Alma, and that the well water system will be the .volution of the city's water problem. If it cannot be located in quantities at a deeper strata, the city will still be able to tap the pipe between 100 and 4."0 feet by perforating the pipe, which goes down to the rock-at 450 feet, and obtain enough more water to supply the city for the coming few years with this well and the present wells. It would also serve to show that at some future date the city would be forced to provide for some other mean of securing water, and would allow future work at the water works to be made with that in view during the coming years and perhaps save a large sum of money to the city. State surveys indicate that water will be secured at a deeper spot by the present well. The wells in St. Louis, Ithaca and Midland, which furnish water for those communities are about the depth of the present well "here, but indications from state figures are that Alma lies over the bowl of a basin, the rock dipping to a deeper point here than in the sur rounding territory. Thus it is hoped that a good flow of water may be se cured when the earth stratas at a deeper depth are reached. L NEXT TUESDAY CHAMBKR OF COMMERCE PLAN NINO WEEKLY EVENT, TO START ON JJUESDAY. It was announced Tuesday after noon that the Alma Chamber of Com merce is planning on holding weekly luncheons in the future, the first of which will be held, next Tuesday noon. The plans call for the holding of the luncheons in the city hall, where there are conveniences for holding such luncheons. Matters of particular interest to the Alma Chamber of Commerce will be taken up at these weekly meetings and solutions to some of the questions that are being sought, may be arrived at. It is understood that Charles G Rhodes, one of the directors of the or ganization, is slated, for a discussion at the meeting to be held next Tues day. The subject of his discussion is still to be selected. Others may also be asked to speak at this meeting. The luncheons will probably last, in cluding the discussions, from an hour to an hour and a half. " The first of the luncheons will bp planned by Dr. Maynard Pringle and C. A. Miller. Tickets for the luncheon may be procured at fifty cents.
