50 YEARS AGO

The pos­si­bil­ity of “free” sew­ers for Gra­sonville has been quickly dis­pelled by a let­ter from the State Health Depart­ment.

A state­ment was made at a meet­ing of some 50 peo­ple con­cern­ing the Kent Nar­rows hous­ing prob­lem re­cently, which in­di­cated that Gra­sonville could get free water and sewer sys­tems from fed­eral and state funds.

Thomas W. Shives, chief of the Di­vi­sion of San­i­tary En­gi­neer­ing for the State Health Depart­ment, said “we do not know of any fed­eral grant pro­gram which will pro­vide 100 per­cent pay­ment for any water or sewer pro­ject. Some of the funds must be pro­vided by the peo­ple to be served by such a pro­ject or from some lo­cal source.”

‘ ••• In a pro­ject de­signed to give stu­dents a first-hand un­der­stand­ing of the work­ings of the New York Stock Ex­change, Ge­orge Pease’s 10th grade World His­tory class at Stevensville High School be­came stock­hold­ers on Feb. 4, 1966.

Each mem­ber of the class con­trib­uted his por­tion of the cost of of the pur­chase of five shares of com­mon stock in Benguet Con­sol­i­dated, a Philip­pine Is­lands min­ing con­cern. The class has kept a chart list­ing the stock’s daily val­ues.

Since its pur­chase, at 1 3/4 points, or $1.75 per share, their in­vest­ment has risen in value one point to a to­tal value of $2.75 per share.
