Bookmokile Discnssed The Fox Valley Regional Library Bookmobile, which comes to Hunt¬ ley every second Tuesday, has aroused great interest in Huntley. The last time the Bookmobile was in town, 200 books were given to Huntley residents. Plans are now in the making for extended pro¬ gram for the Bookmobile.

Weeding of Dairy Cattle If you are interested in good dairy catle management, you will be interested in this week's farm management meeting. It will be held Thursday, Feb. 9, at 8 p.m. in the high school. Earl Baylor, McHenry County Assistant Farm Advisor, will discuss management of dairy cattle with you. The discus¬ sion will be about feeding breeding and weeding, with emphasis on weeding. Mr. Balyor will bring along some very interesting production aver¬ ages for the state and our own Wkat Hnntley Needs? In reading through another newspaper in the area, we came across an article which asked people what their town needed.' A tew weeks before a hotel burned down and a vacant lot was left open in the center of the business district. Inside the paper was a blank which anyone who had a copy of the paper could tear out and give their suggestions as to how this town could be improved. The Huntley Farmside thought that this article was a good idea because at the present time, we have at least one vacant building which can be rented in town. That is the old drug store. There is no reason why this building should bo left vacant. There are many types of busi¬ nesses which could move into town and become successful. Many large business organizations could af¬ ford to put a branch office in Hunt¬ ley. The Huntley Farmside feels t'-.at the best way to get businesses interested in our town is to run a blank such as the one printed in the pages of this other paper. By doing this, we hope to get a cross section of the public's opinion on the type of business they would .J^ke ig.ojjyr town.. On the blank aro a list of a few obvious businesses which could oc¬ cupy these premises. If the Farm- side's coupon idea is successful, and has a large support, we will lake our blanks to some of the merchants in other towns around the area and show them how, per¬ haps, they could be successful in Huntley. We also understand that there is other property suitable for business either for lease, rent or for sale in the Huntley area. Perhaps we could get more than one business into town through this blank. county for your discussion. Last week's class with Earl Johnson, Mike Kane and Ray Tlm- mons was very well attended and enjoyed by those who were there M^arloive Open Honse Today, Feb. 9, Marlowe's Feed and Hatchery are having an open house which starts at 10 a.m. Mr. Marlowe is having guest speakers copie to talk over some of the problems which will confront far¬ mers during the coming year.
