As a result of a small fire a week ago, and damage done by the tornado, the stock of the Economy Shop has been completely wiped out. Hence the drive for articles of clothing and household goods which was started this week. Eight captains have been appointed by Mrs. Blanche Wanner, chairman of the Economy Shop committee, who will each have their own corps of workers to carry on a house-to-house canvass, in the village. The drive is being conducted just at th is time, because so many of the villagers are making changes in residence this month. The captains include Mesdames Blanche Wanner, Mortimer B. Skinner, Burt Nichols, Frank B. King, G. E. Fouts, S. H. Vowell, Edward Lilianfield and Carlton Dart.
