A DANGEROUS PLACE IN ROAD.
From Tucpnay ratly.
Since the grading of the road to
the routh of town has been in pro
gress many places have been left in
a condition far from assuring safety
to the traveling public. One espec
ially bad one is near the home
of C. E. Cook, where the road from
the west intersects with the road
running south. The grade has been
made higher and an approach had
to be constructed. To make it up
onto the grade some speed has to
be developed. A number of accidents
have already occurred there though
none of them have been of a serious
nature. However, the road presents
a suitable place for the occurrence of
a bad accident and it should be at
tended to at once. The mere fact
that grading is in progress is no ex
cuse for leaving roads torn up for
great distances behind the work itself.

Cass county has a proud record ' l
war work along all lines. We iiave

but no record stands out higher than
that of the Red Cross chapter. All
quotas have been filled, no matter
how hard they seemed of accomplish

And now that the war is over they
-till have their share of refugee and
reconstruction work to do.
The county warehouse has been
cleaned and closed for the present.
Whether it will be opened again in.
the fall depends upon the action of
division headquarters. Of this, how
ever, we are certain: If a quota is
assigned the Cass county chapter,
willing hands will again unite in
the work and there will be no let

the garments are ready to ship.
