Nov. 17, 1969 — TWO YOUTHS ARRESTED

In connection with the Southside School fire and burglary, an 18-year old from the Clagstone area and a 16-year old from Careywood were taken into custody Tuesday after interrogation at Sandpoint Senior High. Sheriff Wilcox said both made voluntary statements indicating they had been at a dance Saturday night, where they had been drinking beer. After the dance they went to the Southside School, gained entry and removed items later found in the Clagstone area. After that, one of the boys set several fires in the building.

Nov. 17, 1919 — FIRE SCARE AT THEATER

Thursday afternoon, the fire department was called out when smoke was seen pouring from the Gem theater (200 N. 1st). It appears that a 3-burner oil stove, which Mr. Gardner had brought from home to help heat the auditorium, had oil on the outside. It was found by a lineman in a great blaze, carried out and dumped into the street, at some hazard. No damage to the theater resulted.

METHODIST LADIES COLLECT ON GIRTH

The Methodist Aid society met at the home of Mrs. Stebbins. The ladies had previously sent out miniature aprons to their friends, especially those of ample girth, asking that they place in the apron pockets as many cents as they found inches in their waist measure. The plan seemed to work very effectively, and it would appear that Sandpoint must be conducive to large belts, inasmuch as they already have in nearly $64, while it is anticipated that the number of aprons still out will bring the total amount up to $70.

NURSING CLASS THRIVES

The Red Cross nursing department reports 204 county enrollments, with 19 classes keeping two nurses busy all the time. Not only the numbers enrolled, but their splendid enthusiasm testifies to the awakening regarding the need of better understanding of home nursing and sanitation.
