If there is anyone who has any doubt about the interest in our promotions or
contests and the enthusiasm with which our listeners enter them, he should

10 Cub Scouts from Pack 803 from Taylor on Tuesday, January 23.

Dick Buller is heading for warmer climes next week. He'll be vacationing in

Carey and Philip Van Antwerp.
