Curtailed At Sapphire
As a precautionary measure, the Ecusta Per
sonnel Committee has decided to temporarily sus
pend the children’s activities that are normally
sponsored in the summer by our company. The
activities affected by this action include the boys’
camp; the girls' recreation and choral school;
coaching school at Camp Sapphire; the band
and the Thursday night movies.
The lake at Camp Sapphire has been closed
temporarily to all youngsters under 18 years of
age, but adults 18 and over can still enjoy a swim
in the lake. The picnic area of Sapphire is open
and fishing is still permitted.
The band camp and girls’ program was al
ready in progress at Camp Sapphire, and the
boys’ coaching school was scheduled to open July
12. It is pointed out that this action is tem
porary. If the situation should change so as to
permit the resumption of the children’s activities,
announcement will be made so that all who are
interested will know of the re-opening.

(3) Lift or turn iron as little as possible. (4) Use
One Ecusta housewife reports that the method
was amazingly successful and while she didn’t
cut her time to 4V2 minutes, the method did cut
her time in half and greatly improved the ap
pearance of the finished shirt.

ticle and the hundreds more like it that will help
