was sent to Pierce City on the 4 oclock Frisco this

from there to the scene of the robbery, hoping that the
dog might take up the trail, and at least indicate in
which direction the robbers went, if not run them down

Countys council election will be held at
the same time as all other counties in southwest
Missouri, the third week of January. The election
is being held in accordance with state law
(Chapter 262.550-262.620 R.S. Mo. 1969).
County, we are seeking people from all walks of
life who are interested in education and the
progress of our community to serve on the
extension council," said Dillard. "In
order to have an active council in place we need
good candidates to run."
Every county in
Missouri has an extension council made up of
elected (and appointed) members who represent the
broad educational needs and backgrounds of people
in that county. Council candidates must be at
least 18 years old and reside in Jasper County.
The Jasper County extension council meets on the
first Tuesday of each month.

The dad of a high school friend a mine always
used ta tell him that it didnt cost anymore
ta keep the top half of his 57 Chevys
gas tank full than it did the bottom half.
Course he owned a gas station.
I once ran out of gas and
coasted to a halt directly in front of a driveway
just as the lady drove up ta pull in that
particular drive. "If ya cant afford
the gas, ya shouldnt own it," she
comforted, in a snide voice.
And, of course, my
granddadss observation that its not
the initial cost of a diner table, its the
upkeep thats expensive.
Then the classic,
"Dont look a gift horse in the
mouth," and I would add, "unless ya
have ta feed it."
Course all these pearls
of wisdom are naturally more useful as advice to
others rather than self improvement.
This is some fact, but mostly,

Art Notes from Hyde House
By Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentral
I am pleased to remind you
about our satellite gallery sponsored by
artCentral. Presently, it is located inside the
Sirloin Stockade restaurant on Central Avenue,
and we call this space THE ATRIUM GALLERY as it
is in the front-glassed in area of the
Currently we are displaying a
smaller group of the best work from the last show
by Frank Young which was entitled "A SENSE
OF PLACE", underwritten by HOMETOWN BANK,
which will remain until the end of this month.
This is a nice group of paintings, some of which
are for sale. Our board met today and we continue
the planning for a proposed new parking lot and
entry which is badly needed on the property. I
hope to be able to tell you this will be done by
the first of the year! As I continue to tweak
next years schedule, I will take this
opportunity to say it looks like an interesting
year ahead. And dont forget our last show
of this year will be an exciting one as well,
work by the Charleston, Missouri artist Glenda
Manche, coming in November. In the meantime, we
will be accepting and hanging the new show next
week for our featured artist Patricia Moline who
I spoke about last week. This show is
underwritten by BEIMDIEK INSURORS. We welcome her
and her exhibition "CLOUDY" opening

this will join us for that evenings opening

our hours of noon until 5:00. Hope to see many of
