pense of several L'lons who con
tributed to the Clubs treasury by
being fined for not wearing their
Lions Button, or not having their
wives present, or by failing to
address a fellow Lion by his first

when the "Fish Quartet" com

sisted by Dick. Eagles conducted
a Truth or Consequences program
in which seven Lions paid the
penalty for not being able to tell
the truth. In fact as a result of
the questions either being too
hard to answer or the contest
ants being too dumb, all seven
suffered the humiliation of hav
ing part of their neckties snipped
off. Lions Boyce, Puller, Lam

GOLD MINE TOWNSHIP
GOES OVER THE TOP J
IN BO$TO SALES
Chairman N. H. Griffin of Gold
Mine Township called his com
mittee together last week and
made a house to house canvas in
his township, selling more than
enough bonds to meet the quota
for that township. Chairman
Griffin announces that before the
campaign is over he expects every
home In Gold Mine township to
have bought at least one bond.
This leaves Dunn No. 2 as the
township furtherest behind in Its
sales. However, Chairman Perry
is putting on a special effort this
week, and U Is expected that
Dunn No. 2 will be over the top
before the time has expired. San
dy Creek and Youngsville are al
most over the top and wilj be long
before the 15th.
It now appears that every town
ship in Franklin County will Sell
its quota but even this may not
meet the quota of "E" bonds set
for Franklin County, which is
$190,000.00. The county as a
whole will meet the over-all quo
ta of $260,000.00, but the -biggest
portion of this is made up of sales
to corporations rather than indi
