There is a lot going on around town, but nothing quite as much as the flu, colds, coughs and everything that is hard to get rid of this kind of weather. I say going on around town, be- cause we see so many people just dragging along, tending to their every day business, in spite of all the aches and groans. Of course, among the small fry and not so small, too, there are such things like mmps and measles. Spring (what's that) with its sunshine and warmer weather will be most welcome and should be a big help. Mr. and Mrs. C. R. Woolley had as dinner guests Sunday Mr. and Mrs. Uh'ich Scherrer of Granite, Hans Scherrer of Marysville and Randy Schroed- er from Canyon Creek Lodge. Mr. and Mrs. Lucas Stelz were visitors from over the mountains. They came from Wenatchee for several days of visiting with relatives a n d friends.

She hadn't been feeling at all well recently and was still feeling ill when she ar- rived here. However, with the good treatment she received while here she improved great- ly and returned to her home improved.
