Council Cont'd From Page 8 After considering the repairs needed to the city's retired pickup truck, it was decided that instead of placing the truck for sale by bid (the cost of advertising, could exceed the value of the truck) it was decided to accept an offer from councilmember John Utterback of $200 for the truck. With th e apparent list of problems it was decided that the truck's condition could only be rated as fair. John commented tha t he could com- bine two old trucks and possibly get one good runner out of the two. In other business - City employees were congratulated on their snow removal efforts. Mayor Fuhrer said he received many compliments from constituents. While the city is buying two new banners for the courthouse square, Mr. Gustafson said his engineering firm is also going to buy and donate two banners so that all four comers of the court- house square can have a Lincoln image banner. There was mention that the city will look at reinstating a community calendar so that orga- nizations can come up to City Hall and note what date they are going to have an event. Most recently, two organizations have scheduled an event on the same day and concern was expressed that the conflict could draw attendance from each. Next Council meeting is 6:30 PM Tuesday, March 10 in Mount Pulaski City Hall. HOT D!

The much worried over gym floor that was replaced was part of the "Walkabout" at the high school... See Back Page. Gym was in use during the tour and a youngster gave the floor a "thumbs up" in answer to how he liked it. Times Photo Steve Hahn came across several interesting artifacts last fall. This WWll war ration book belonged to 20-year-old Lillian Bertrang of Mt Pulaski. In the book were individual stamps that authorized the holder to purchase rationed goods in quantities and at times designated by the Office of Price Administration. Without the stamps, individuals were unable to purchase the goods. One of the cautions included that the book was not to be thrown away when all the stamps were used or when the time expired for their use. You were required to present the book when you applied for subsequent ration books. The back of the book included the following cautions... "Any attempt to violate the rules of rationing is an effort to deny someone their fair share and will create hardship and help the enemy. This book is your government's assurance of your right to buy your fair share of certain goods made scarce by war. Pdce ceilings have also been established for your protection. Dealers must post those prices conspicu- ously. Do not pay more. Give your support to rationing and thereby conserve our vital goods. Be. guided by the rule: If you don't need it, don't buy it." 12 I= =. to tO O gt Find the right 3roducts for/our pro'ect and ex )eFt advice at True Value.
