Dickinson. Some time ago one of the major bus companies requested a permit from the city to operate on regular schedule between Arcadia and Pasadena, especially servicing the northeast portion of the city.

It was proposed to name a committee to contact the company. No official action was taken. George Young of Douglas Drug Co., presented a model of Christmas time street decorations to be placed at prominent intersections throughout the city. He offered his services free. The State Highway Commission will be interviewed relative to the proposed decorative scheme.

In due time these will be presented to the city council. Director L. A. Beckstrom received a unanimous vote of thanks for the 16 peg hat rack presented the chamber. Decision was made to give a trophy for the golf tournament at County park, Oct. 17-18-19. Minger, Bashore Lead Both .ocal Men In Election ELECTED IN PRIMARY LEE T.
