Councillor Earl Foxall report- ed on the pool at the recent meeting of town council. He said there were problems encountered in construction of the pool. It was first to have been opened in mid-June. Councillor Foxall reported on material testings which are be- ing done on the pool at the re- quest of council. There are many leaks in the pool, he said. These are being caulked. Pool measurements meet the standards required. Earlier it was thought they would not. Mr. Foxall said there was not adequate back wash due lo an error by the engineering firm. Now a new larger line will have to be laid to provide for suffi- cient back wash. Another air vent will have to be installed in the Sport recreation hall. Council agreed with the rec- ommendation of Mr. Foxall that George King, the town's water and sewer supervisor, be assigned to oversee the work being done at the Sportsplex.

Oh yes, when I milked Elsie, I used to say, "Elsie, you have a very nice, beautiful, well- formed foot." I used to talk soothingly, to Elsie. I'd say, "Elsie, that's beautiful, well turned ankle you've got there, baby." Then Elsie would luni and look-at me with her soft, beauti- ful, liquid brown eyes. And then that good-for-noth- ing, post legged, narrow, spread toed, crampy, coarse, undesirable, loose uddered, nervous, light boned, hard milker with the strutting teats would kick the gosh darned bucket across the cow barn.
