Firefighting equipment and a large crowd of spectators were drawn to Lage’s D-X station, just east of the Hartley Creamery, by a small fire in a storage building adjacent to the station. Large quantities of smoke billowed from the structure but damage was very minor.
The Hartley Chamber of Commerce donated $50 to the Melvin girls’ basketball team to help defray their expenses to the state tournament in Des Moines. President S.J. Johnson, W.R. Wagner, W.H. Hesse and Secretary Ingwer L. Hansen drove to Melvin to make the presentation and wish the team much success.
