Announcement is made this week that Dean C. Batt has sold his interest in Hannaford Abstract Company to his partner, Norma Hannaford.

Marion High School basketball “Queen of Courts” for 1963 is Donna Hanschu. Her two attendants are Cheryl Caselman and Mary Teresa Konarik. Queen escorts were Mike Schwemmer, Lowell Ensey, and Max Jackson. A dance in the school music room followed the game.

Connie Jost, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Larry Jost, Marion, was named District Poultry Queen at the annual Cottonwood Valley Poultry Barbecue and Jamboree in Marion last Thursday. She will represent the district in a state contest later this summer.
