There are a few things to be ironed out but the main things have been settled. The new super pool will bring in a few more cents per 100 lbs. than the 1960 super pool. One change that has been made is that dealers in the Calumet, Ind. area will receive a credit of $.15 per 100 lbs. This was given them because the members of one co-op were going to other markets. $.10 per hundred will be given those in DuPage- Kane will re¬ ceive $.05 and those north of Kane county in McHenry and Lake county will receive $.03 per 100 lbs.

The Lions members and their wives enjoyed a very fine evening. The party started at 7:30 p.m. Lions Weber and Meyer were in charge of arranging the party. After a social gathering the Lions and their wives enjoyed a fine dinner. Following the dinner Lions Burmeister and Zimmerman acted as "Santas" by passing out the exchange gifts. A short business meeting was held concerning some rather close coming events, as the coming Grade School Christmas Prog:ram of Dec. 19. Unless some particularly urgent events demand a special meeting, there will be no Lions Club meet¬ ing until January due to the com¬ ing busy holiday season. Eighteen of 21 members were present at the Lions Dinner Party. Tuesday, Dec- 13, from 9:15 to 10:15 the Fox River Valley Reg¬ ional Library Bookmobile will be in Huntley. It is being sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary in cooperation with the American Legion Post 673. This service will be continued on alternate Tues¬ days until June 30, at which time it is hop)ed that it will become a community project. The Bookmobile consists of ap¬ proximately 5,000 books of all types, both fiction and non-fiction. About two-thirds of these are for adults The one-third which makes up the children's section will be classified so that it will be possible to easily and quickly find the book for the age group you desire. Miss Ida G. Wilson is the admin¬ istrator of the Bookmobile. Its headquarters are Gail Borden F*ub- lic Library of Elgin. The librarian will be Patria A. Kelly and Melvin Funtsinu is the driver- Every member of the family will be able to take out a card. If the Bookmobile doesn't have the par¬ ticular book that you are looking for, they will be able to obtain it for you from the Elgin library. Many of the books are new. They were shipped from the pub¬ lishers and some are available through the Bookmobile even be¬ fore they are on the market. The Legion Auxiliary hopes that the town will bet gehlnd this pro¬ ject and help them to make this a success.
