The frost 18 inches of it was located on the Jim Martines farm and was un¬ earthed while the K. P. Bakley Construction Co. was digging a pond last week. The construction of the pond was started last winter before the ground froze and the moist ijeat .soil froze during the hard winter of last year. The frost was actual¬ ly discovered in June when Mr. Bakley commenced construction of the pond again. At that time the piles of dirt were so hard that the largo construction equipment could not move it, thus construc¬ tion was postponed until last week Pictured above is Mr. Martines holding one of the chunks of frost hardened soil unearthed by one of the large "cats." Actually the strange phenomena of frost in the ground probably was caused by the fact that the soil was peat. Peat is a substance formed by tho--4ecompo8ition of plants in mullgjnoisture, found only in the coMr parts of the world where the decay of vege- talbe substance Is-not too rw^iLIt* strains of heat or cold for a long duration of time. It is said that many years ag^bere were lakes or rivers aroui^He Huntley area which gradually changed into bogs forming the peat. Mr. Bakley stated that in his 20 years of business he has never seen anything to compare with frost in the middle of July. Ben Hansford Chev. Honored A ploque for distinguished pub¬ lic service has been awarded to Ben Hansford CThexrolet, Huntley by the Chicago Motor Club. This recognition was given the firm for supplying a driver train¬ ing car to the schools in the Hunt¬ ley area during the 1962-63 school year. G. W. Cavanagh, president of the Chicago Motor Club, praised the company for its significant assistance to the vital driver edu¬ cation program. He said: "The contribution to traffic safety made by this firm is invalu¬ able. Through the use of care generously supplied by this firm, youngsters have been trained to be safer, more competent drivers. The cost of this training is far less then the expense involved in the average traffic accident." Since 1946, when the driver training program was started by the motor club in Illinois and Indiana, dealers have supplied cars in which thousands of stu¬ dents have benefited from behind the wheel training.
