Col. D. E. Owens served as marshal of the day during the Ellston Homecoming and is unexcelled. Dennis was always on the job and wasn't afraid to let people know what was next on the program. He made many new friends while here and Ellston will always have a warm spot in their hearts for him. Mr. Owens is in the auctinerring business and you would do well to see him when planning a sale.

Emma Wyler, who has been the efficient clerk at the Nichol Book Store for the past two years, severed her connection with the store Saturday and will enter the C.C.C.C.
