NEW GROCERY STORE
(Continued from Page One)
Mr* Dunaway, station manager, wish
es to announce that it is his aim to
provide service.with the best of inde
pendent or chain owned stations and
will welcome all suggestions offered
toward improving the service.
The Consumer Services is now hard
at work on plans for a cooperative set
up for laundry, dry cleaning, and milk
delivery services, and is in every way
trying to keep pace with the growing
needs of Greenbelt's growing popula-V
tion.
Last week a leaflet was distributed
to every home pointing out the place
of the Consumer Services in the new
community* This will be followed from
time to time by others explaining in
more detail the aims and principles of
this organization end the part it is
expected to play in the .growth and de
velopment of Greenbelt*. H. L.
We've heard it said so often; "The
family selection committee and the in
vestigating staff of the, Farm Security
Administration have done such a beau
tiful jobV" Greenbelters know that it
would hot be easy to bring together
such a congenial, wide-awake community
of people, if selection had been merely
a haphazard undertaking. There is no
time left to say more. We wish you con
tinued success. We hope the neighbors
to come are as nice as the. ones we have.
Roy S. Braden, Community Manager,
visited New Orleans recently.
