Former Local Man Wed in Grand Forks ]' Helga McOullough of East Grand Forks and John L. Lewis of Grand Forks, were married July 7 in the United Lutheran church in Grand Forks, according to word re- ceived here. The Rev. Alvin Stenberg officiat- ed and the attendants were Mrs. El- lis Larson and Glen McCullough, daughter and son of the bride. Mr. and Mrs. Lewis are living at 1809 Second Avenue, north in Grand Forks. Mr. Lewis is a former Park River resident and has a number of rel- atives in this community. the last time in Park River yester- day (Wednesday), according to an announcement by a spokesman for the Park River Commercial Club. It is o be replaced, however, by a new set-up labeled 'Market Day', which will be initiated next Wed- nesday, September 5. Registration started earlier this week for the new proposed draw- ing, with individuals being instruct- ed to sign up only ONCE. The reason for this limitation, stated 1 K. Bork, committeeman, is that each person's name is recorded in a master register book, alphabeti- cally, and assigned a code letter and number. A separate slip or card will then be marked with the registrant's code letter and number Father and Son Accident Victims Carl Olson, local contractor, and his son, Morgan, 21, are patients at St. Ansgar's hospital here where they are being treated for injuries sustained in separate accidents in which they figured recently. First to enter the hospital was the elder Mr. Olson. who suffered sev- ere burns about the face, neck, chest and hands while burning rub- bish at his home in the city. In order to hasten the igniting of some tree branches in the incinerator, he poured gasoline on them from a coffee can. The can caught fire, sending the flames into his face. The accident occurred August" 17 sheet. The Market Day award will be $75.00 the first week, increasing $25.00 each week, should there not be a winner. Bork said that the payment will be in script money. The new Market Day will differ to a large degree from the out- going Appreciation Day, but prob- ably the most noticeable change will be in the drawing and an- nouncement of the winner. Under the approaching set-up, the Market Day committee will make the draw- ing on the Monday or Tuesday pre- ceding Market Day. They then will notify radio station KNOX. Grand Fork of the name and address of the award winner. The name and address will then be announced over radio station KNOX at 3:30 on Wednesday afternoon repeat- ing the name and address for clarity. Bork emphasized that the award wmner must be in one of the par- ticipating stores at the time the radio announcement is made. There will be a 30 second grace period, but if the winner does not present himself to the proprietor in that time. the award will increase $25.00 for the following week. The reason for the switch from the 8-year-old Appreciation Day drawing was that many of the merchants were dissatisfied with the decreasing number of subscrib- ers. Under the old plan, all business places in the city derived the same benefit from-the weekly prize draw- ing, regardless of whether or not and a this time his covsiitio., is they were contributing membeE to said to be somewhat improved, the fund.

Former Local Man Wed in Grand Forks ]' Helga McOullough of East Grand Forks and John L. Lewis of Grand Forks, were married July 7 in the United Lutheran church in Grand Forks, according to word re- ceived here. The Rev. Alvin Stenberg officiat- ed and the attendants were Mrs. El- lis Larson and Glen McCullough, daughter and son of the bride. Mr. and Mrs. Lewis are living at 1809 Second Avenue, north in Grand Forks. Mr. Lewis is a former Park River resident and has a number of rel- atives in this community. the last time in Park River yester- day (Wednesday), according to an announcement by a spokesman for the Park River Commercial Club. It is o be replaced, however, by a new set-up labeled 'Market Day', which will be initiated next Wed- nesday, September 5. Registration started earlier this week for the new proposed draw- ing, with individuals being instruct- ed to sign up only ONCE. The reason for this limitation, stated 1 K. Bork, committeeman, is that each person's name is recorded in a master register book, alphabeti- cally, and assigned a code letter and number. A separate slip or card will then be marked with the registrant's code letter and number Father and Son Accident Victims Carl Olson, local contractor, and his son, Morgan, 21, are patients at St. Ansgar's hospital here where they are being treated for injuries sustained in separate accidents in which they figured recently. First to enter the hospital was the elder Mr. Olson. who suffered sev- ere burns about the face, neck, chest and hands while burning rub- bish at his home in the city. In order to hasten the igniting of some tree branches in the incinerator, he poured gasoline on them from a coffee can. The can caught fire, sending the flames into his face. The accident occurred August" 17 sheet. The Market Day award will be $75.00 the first week, increasing $25.00 each week, should there not be a winner. Bork said that the payment will be in script money. The new Market Day will differ to a large degree from the out- going Appreciation Day, but prob- ably the most noticeable change will be in the drawing and an- nouncement of the winner. Under the approaching set-up, the Market Day committee will make the draw- ing on the Monday or Tuesday pre- ceding Market Day. They then will notify radio station KNOX. Grand Fork of the name and address of the award winner. The name and address will then be announced over radio station KNOX at 3:30 on Wednesday afternoon repeat- ing the name and address for clarity. Bork emphasized that the award wmner must be in one of the par- ticipating stores at the time the radio announcement is made. There will be a 30 second grace period, but if the winner does not present himself to the proprietor in that time. the award will increase $25.00 for the following week. The reason for the switch from the 8-year-old Appreciation Day drawing was that many of the merchants were dissatisfied with the decreasing number of subscrib- ers. Under the old plan, all business places in the city derived the same benefit from-the weekly prize draw- ing, regardless of whether or not and a this time his covsiitio., is they were contributing membeE to said to be somewhat improved, the fund.
