Owen Theatre Sold

George Krom, owner and manager of the Owen Theatre for the past seventeen years, this week announced the sale of his property to Leonard Hamm, Owen, and Paul Stasek, of Curtiss.

Mr. Krom plans on leaving Owen Tuesday and will fly to Portland, Ore., where he will spend about ten days locating a home for his family in that city, as they expect to move to that section of the country this summer.

Further announcement pertaining to the sale of the property, and date of change of ownership, will be made next week.
