A daughter, Sherry Ardis, 7½ lbs., was born to Mr. and Mrs. John C. Bradley, of Cambria, on April 6.  The mother was the former Louise Leiser.


Mrs. Bertha M. Stallard returned Monday from spending the Easter holidays with her sons and families in Minneapolis.  She reports that Carroll Clark, who a couple of weeks ago lost his wife, is about his home on crutches owing to a serious injury to one of his feet.


Mr. and Mrs. A. W. Short enjoyed an Easter visit from their daughters and families, Mrs. Don Sherwood and daughter, Grace, of Eau Claire, and Mr. and Mrs. John Diffor and baby son, of Randolph.  Mrs. Sherwood and daughter returned to their home Sunday evening and Mr. Diffor and family returned Monday.


Harry Hart is again on duty for the conservation department, in the watch tower north of the former Jenswold farm.


Mrs. Carl W. Bobb and son and Mrs. Arthur Laffe and daughter, of B.R. Falls, spent several days the past week at the McCready home.


Leonard Hobbs, who is employed in a paper mill in Milwaukee, was a visitor over the weekend with his brother Lewis and wife in Fairchild. Some time ago Mr. Hobbs bought the former telephone building in this village and has had his household effects stored there since he disposed of his farm at Price.  Not long ago Mr. Hobbs spent a weekend with the Herman Johnson’s at Racine, and reports them all employed in the factories there.


Mr. and Mrs. H. M. Bobb and daughters, of Eau Claire were weekend visitors at McCready’s.


Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Klatt returned Monday noon from Minneapolis where they spent a week at the home of their son and family. Their son is now foreman in an iron foundry in that city.


The Clark County AAA committee will handle the dairy feed payment for milk delivered and produced in March and April through the mail, thus saving the farmers valuable time, gas and rubber.  Mr. Sorenson, chairman, notes that only those having farms registered in Clark County should make applications through his office, even though they may deliver milk to a plant located in Clark County.


Dick Matti was at Loyal at the close of his farm deferment.  He was denied a further stay, and enlisted in the Navy.  Dick will report for training May 1st.
