The present invasion of the army worm started in the southern part of the state and is quickly sweeping northward, stripping pastures and small grains. Barley fields are suffering a great deal.

It is the opinion of citizens of the Ivy Bend area that the Gravois Mills exchange would be more desirable to the residents of Ivy Bend than the Sunrise Beach exchange. The most desirable, of course, would be through Stover, but since the local telephone company is unable to handle the additional service, the next best step is Gravois Mills.

Cub Scouts will put up flags at business places July 4 and leave them in brackets for business people to remove because the fee arrangement for such service has expired. The arrangement was between the Boy Scout Troop and business people, but getting the flags up and down was left to the scoutmaster. The arrangement started as a means of the Troop to earn money. The flags will now become the property of the business people.
