Both are improving steadily. Mrs. Clifford Anson had the flu last week and her daughter Kay missed two days of school wilh the illness.

The girls won 44-34 for Byng and the Byng boys defeated Fitzhugh by a score of 55-34. The Byng boys now have a twenty game winning streak for the season. The Byng boys will play in the East Central Invitational Tourna- ment this week. It seems that the main topic for. discussion is the flu. Mrs. Jim Crawford is improving but her son Joe had to miss work all last week because of the flu. His wife. Jewel, also had thd flu and an infected tooth which is causing her much pain at this writing. Mrs. John Brassfield has been real busy the last few days help- ing her relatives who were ill. They all tried to take the flu at once. She helped her daughter, Mrs. Joe Beavers, with her children and her daughter-in-law with her family and she said her sister's family had all had it too. They are all residents of Ada. And who of all people now has the flu, but Mrs. Brassfield herself! I'm truly SOITV to hear of so much illness in this community but for one time my family is all well for which I'm verv thankful. I'm sure lhat everyone like my- self is enjoying these nice sun- shiny days we've been having re- cently. Let's hope that they con- tinue for awhile.
