Work started this week on complete interior redecoration of the Mount Ayr post office. Paul Hervey of Ottumwa, in charge of the work here for the M. J. Newsom Company of Des Moines, said it would probably take more than a month to complete the job. Walls and ceilings of the work area will be repainted a light tan color with all wood trim in the area painted a rust color. The lobby area will remain about the same, with walls receiving a new coat of green and the wood getting new varnish.
Elmer Schlapia observed his 99th birthday anniversary Thursday in the home of his nephew and niece, Mr. and Mrs. Roy Larson, of Liberty township.
