The numbers of fire alarm boxes in the city, together with instructions to how to turn in an alarm and what to do thereafter, are set forth on a card that has been printed by the East Oregonian and copies of which may be had by anyone calling at the business office. Owing to difficulties that arise in connection with turning in alarms, Chief Ringold advises that those who do not have these cards secure them. They may be posted near a telephone or in some other accessible place.

Cheryl Davis says she’s comfortable bringing her young children to Tillicum Grange at Mission. In fact, grange meetings draw three generations. Davis and her husband, Jack, were encouraged to join five years ago by his parents, Dick and Marguerite Maznaritz, who are active at Tillicum Grange. She and her husband are District 6 youth chairmen. The district covers Eastern Oregon granges from Umatilla County eastward. She received an honorary title, Oregon State Youth Master, in April. Davis also was selected 1994 Outstanding Young Adult during the state session, June 20-24 in McMinnville. Her expenses will be paid to the national grange convention in November at Peoria, Ill.
