Congregation Honors
Pastor, Rev. J. L. Mason
'Mi v James L. Mason, pastor
of the Free Methodist church in
Caldwell since August, 1954, was
pleasantly surprised by members
of his congregation in a unique
manner on his birthday, May 1st.
Rev. Mason is now building a
cottage for himself and family
at their camping grounds in
Mansfield, where they spend at
least five weeks out of the year.
In keeping with this plan, the
Sunday school class constructed
a miniature cottage and all mem
bers dropped their birthday
cards in the box, complete with
a donation.
The "surprise" for their
pastor netted him the tidy sum
of $315.00.

Auditor C. R. Atkinson is
moving forward in his cam
paign to put Noble county on
a pay-as-you-go basis, even
though he is faced with an
overdrawn general county

In conjunction with this
policy, a general lay-off of men
employed on the county high

last Saturday morning by
Engineer Homer Weedon.
There have been 73 em

Auditor Atkinson pointed out
that it was impossible to meet
the payroll figures.
This temporary lay-off is
expected to continue to May
