This is a rare opportunity that comes once in a lifetime.
Plans are being completed to hold "open house" at the
Noble county jail, Saturday, Feb. 21, according to an
announcement made today by Sheriff Donald Conaway and

that lengthy hearings were held
and more than 40 persons ap
peared to argue for and against
the recodification proposal. He
explained that after the com
mittee decided to recommend
the bill to the house, it was
passed almost unanimously.
The measure is now awaiting
senate action.
Open House'' Planned At Jail
For the past several weeks,
Mac Pilcher and his gang,
ihave been remodeling the
k ^living quarters of the jail and
many new improvements have
been accomplished.
A new floor was laid in the
kitchen and a new double sink
has been installed. In addition,
all the rooms were painted and
"Open House" will give many
an opportunity to see the jail
proper and it is expected that a
large number will turn out to be
guests that day of Sheriff and
Mrs. Conaway.
The bill for decorating the jail
is being paid by the county com
missioners and was one of the
first matters of business authoriz

the board.
It was pointed out today that
Noble county is' one of the few
in the entire state where a two

installed in the sheriff's office.
Sheriff Conaway said that
such a proposition had been
mentioned but the commissioners
feel that they are not now able
to financially bear the burden.
It was also noted that Monroe
county is faced with the same
situation and they are now back
