The masks on board at left are examples of papier mache craft by the youngsters.

Marshall Field & Company’s plan to build an outlying shopping cen ter is akin to that announced by J. L. Hudson Co., Detroit, several weeks ago. Field’s and Hudson’s have for years been neck and neck as the second larg est individual store volume next to R. H. Macy & Co. Bad officials are often elected by good citizens — who didn’t vote.
