There was sun Monday afternoon, but fog cut off the sun dial Tuesday morning. The picture was shot at 3 p.m. Daylight Saving time, but the dial read 2 p.m., the accurate CST. Truck Halted on Bridge; 54,000 Lbs. Overweight Cedar Gets 'Temporary' i New Deputy I 'TIPTON The Cedar county board of supervisors Monday gave temporary approval to the appointment of Dan Hannes, 27. as deputy sheriff at an annual salary of $8,400 Hannes at one time was a police officer in 'Tipton As matron of the jail. Hannes’ wife, Linda, will receive $25 a month plus their housing in the jail residence. The appointment was temporary until a civil service commission is completed to certify that he is qualified. The action was taken after Sheriff Eugene Hancock presented a letter from an assistant state attorney general which said the supervisors were authorized to make the appointment in the absence of a civil service commission.    CEDAR FALLS - State Rep.

The idea was to chuck a few rocks at the big dump rats and see if you could find something to take home. Cruel Finding Sunday afternoon, three Marquette youths about that age, found something to take home They also learned just a little more about life - its crueler part Investigating a sack at the dump in Marquette, the boys found two adult dogs, apparently frozen to death The boys, Kimm Warrington, Lester Lutz and Kicky Kirby then heard whining and rustling in the nearby piles ol rubble. But though they could hear sounds of pups, they could neither see them, nor coax them to come out. Evidently they had had enough of the milk of human kindness. The boys started digging Nearly three hours later, they were four frightened pups happier, but they also were more worried Facing them was the prospect of explaining to their parents why they were so late and of figuring out what to do with four obviously hungry, fairly good sized puppies Look for Homes Rn kv rememlKM'ed dial Ins aunt, Mary .lo Lire, had an empty dog house in her yard because she took her own dog inside during the bitter cold Ile thought they could leave the homeless, motherless pu|*> there and he was right.
