Come see the great new Servel Gas refrig
erator It’s a beauty—with every newt con
venience for fresh foods and frozen foods.
But good looks is just the start. The Servel
Gas Refrigerator brings you the fambus
different, simpler freezing system with mo
moving parts. No valves, piston or pump.
No machinery at all to wear or get noisy.
A tiny gas flame does the work.
More than two million families are erg
joying silent Servel Gas Refrigerators to\
day. Ask any of them, and they’ll say, “Picw
Servel, it stays silent, lasts longer!”
Add Fence At Park
As an added improvement and safe
guard for youngsters a fence has been
added to the new park. The new fence
stands four feet high and will be
over 350 feet long when completed. At
present it runs from the Bigler Road
to the fountain in the park. The fence
parallels the quarry edge. Sufficient
gates will be added to make easy ac
cess to the water’s edge by fishermen.
A general cleanup program was
launched last Thursday evening and
a large group of men responded. Will
ing hands soon had sawed up a couple
of large trees, mowed the grass, cut
weeds and made necessary prepara
tions for putting up the new’ fence.
Iron pipes furnished by the Central
Ohio Light and Pow’er Company were
were cemented in place for the new’
gates and the fence stretching got
under way the first of the w’eek.
Several w-eeks will be required before
the task will be completed. At pres
ent the fence is erected in temporary

a number of years.
Fishing has not been affected by
motorboating. The other evening Jack
and Donna Koontz, Bob Koontz
and Roddy Nonnamaker snagged 7
nice channels wnthin ten minutes after
