OCTOBER 6, 1932

Glasgow, a city of 5,050, is short in its police force.  Now that the devilment season is at hand, we believe it a wise policy to put on an extra man or two.  Policing a city of this size is a big job – too big for the small police force that we now have.

Entitled to A Rest.  After 34 years in business in Glasgow, Frei’s Restaurant has been closed.  Mr. Frei has occupied his present quarters on the north side of the square more than 25 years.  During all these years, Frei’s has been recognized as a dependable place to secure only the finest of food and fountain service.  Serving three generations of Glasgow residents, he had built up a fine trade.  Mr. Frei’s first business venture in Glasgow was “way back yonder” when he first came to this section to work for Mr. Raubold.  His host of friends here regret the necessity of his closing but trust that he again will engage in business here.

Hospital to Be Financed.  Stores of the city were closed from 2:30 to 4:30 on Tuesday afternoon for the mass meeting at the Christian Church to hear the explanation of the new finance plan for the hospital.  Around 100 were present, and 85 members were pledged before the meeting adjourned.  The new plan calls for payments extending over a five-year period, with credit to amount of payments, those payments to be applied against any hospital bill you might incur.  Members of your family are entitled to your credit.  This plan is worthy, providing you with a reserve fund and insurance against a hospital expense.
