No at- tempt to judge the patrols will be made other than to point out mis- . takes or places where improve- ment could be made. Cancer Campaign Ends This Week Hurry with those memberships in the Mason County Unit of the Women‘s Field Army of the Am- erican Society for the Control of Cancer. The membership campaign will close this week, Mrs. James Need- ham, captain of the Mason County unit, reported today, and there are still many interested persons who haven‘t yet sent in their mem- berships. Any amount will be appreciated, whether it be a dime or a dollar, Mrs. Needham said. Money may be left with either Mrs. Needham‘ or Mrs. C. E. Runacres, unit treasurer. New Auto Sales Mount In April More than two new cars were sold every day during April (in- cluding holidays) by Mason Coun- ty agtomobile dealers, judging by licensing records at the auditor's office. . Sixty-two licenses were issued during the month for new cars alone, the records indicate, the best single month’s record in new car sales this year. Perhaps the approach of the three per cent sales tax injected a tonic into car buying during the month. 1941 licenses issued to date wri- tinue to soar' well ahead of last year’s record number, with sales on May 1 for this year being 3009 and for the same date last year 2855, the auditor’s records show.
