Bowl Hi Lanes, changed ownership and will be under new management as of Friday, August 18th. Up until this year the buildii^ which will house the Green Onion Restaurant planning to open its doors for business next Monday was a gas station, junk shop and used car lot. The building for years housed a Sinclair Gas Sta¬ tion operated by Huge Sweeney, owner of tho building, and Bd Seiler. I^ter it was used by Jack Dahn as a curiosity shop and used car center. No longer ctoes the building resemble a gas station in any way. In fact, one might say it looks as if it never had been a gas station. This was the main effort of Mr. and Mrs. Lester Hanke to erese the gas station image from iheir restaurant soon trf «pen. They have succeeded admirably and have in¬ stalled booths, tables, counters in a rustic country decor. Upon e«terK^*i* ing the foyer (the oW gas station office) one can see an antique t^-ass ceiling fixture and buggy bench. This section also has an attadied cloak room. The restaurant is completely paneled with a shake roof over the entraiwe to the cook- I ing area. The counter with its an¬ tique brass rail sits on the location |which once housed the grease rack.
