Mount Ayr Record-News
Mount Ayr, Ringgold County, Iowa
Thursday, March 06, 1941

by Chanse Hall, Mount Ayr Record-News

The communty sale held Tuesday in Mount Ayr was the largest ever held. It was even larger than the initial sale held December 5, 1939, when the consignments included high grade cattle and the volume of business transacted amounted to more than $15,000. The Mount Ayr Livestock Market was established in December 1939, under the management of F. B. Maloy, Glen Dixon and Floyd S. Miller, the latter of whom recently sold his interest to Mr. Dixon and Mr. Maloy.

Mary Lou Shafer and Raymond Drake, Jr. were united in marriage at the home of Mr. and Mrs. G. Add Tennant on March 5, Mr. Tennant performing the ceremony. Mrs. Drake has for several years lived in the M. W. Shafer home and Mr. Drake is the son of G. Raymond Drake, of Middle Ford township. They will be at home on the J. L. Irving farm in Washington township.

"Reddy Kilowatt" arrived in Mount Ary during the week for an indefinite stay at the I.S.U. company office. Reddy is known to thousands of communities as their electrical servant and will be known in the future as the symbol of the electrical industry.

Blanch Bickel, R.N., daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Bickel, of Poe township, left Friday for Santa Rosa, Texas, where she will be employed as a nurse in an army camp.

Mr. and Mrs. Paul Dinkel moved their household goods Saturday to Greenfield, where he has employment in the Ford Garage. Mr. and Mrs. F. E. McNeiley will reside in the Dinkel property in west Mount Ayr.

TINGLEY - R. G. Hogue, who bought the Tingley Cafe, took possession on March 3. The cafe had been operated by Mr. and Mrs. Ted Hannah for the past two years.
