does not believe his town will die of economic strangulation at the hands of larger area towns He believes Orchards five busi nesses will continue to be able to compete with their counter parts in the bigger centers i Orchard isnt going to grow too much he would tell you but itll always be a stable fanning community He points out that his town has grown only by about 10 in the last four years The 1960 census showed 116 residents in Orchard and he estimates the total now is somewhere around 126 Smolik hastens to explain that Orchard businessmen are offer ing farmers one thing they cant get in bigger towns ir regular store hours He il lustrates further by noting that breakdowns in farm machinery do not always happen between 8 a m and 5 p m Even if it should happen at 10 oclock at night or 7

Orchard voters went to the polls to vote on an bond issue There was one opposing vote Another in revenue bonds was raised Thiee hundred dollars was charged each property owner hooked into the system Each water customer is charged per quarter There are no meters because they couldnt afford to install them In 18 years the bonds which required an additional six mill tax levy will have been re tired There is one well now feeding the entire system It is pure and requires no chemical treatment Smolik said Orchard has two miles of streets All but two blocks arc blacktoppcd Orchard now has a
