Advance sales of football tickets for the game between Buffalo and Gillette on Friday ran high. Ticket sellers canvassed most of the town. Helen Luckcuck sold the most tickets, turning in over $10. This was equalled previously by Beula Sutherland, who had similar luck in selling for the Newcastle game. Final receipts of the Buffalo game totaled $124.05 which is more than C.C. High has ever taken in at a game.

Mrs. Frankl Stewart recently made a gift to the D. Wilhelm museum of a shaving mug cabinet, used in the early days by the late Frank Stewart in his barber business here. She also presented the museum with a shaving mug, the property of the late W.A. Dodds, pioneer saloon keeper of Gillette. It was the custom of that time for patrons to keep their own shaving equipment in the shop of their choice. Mr. Stewart established his business in 1908 in approximately the same location the business, which is operated by his wife, maintains at the present time.

The Board of Adjustments ruled in favor of Gene Bannister in part of his appeal but reserved judgment on another portion of the appeal at a hearing Oct. 17. The Ben Franklin store being constructed and stocked by Bannister is the center of the controversy. City Building, Planning, Zoning Inspector Bill Hopkins had ruled the building was in violation of several of the items in the Uniform Building Code. Bannister countered that Hopkins was not interpreting the code right and laid his case before the board a week before. Hopkins claimed Bannister had not installed enough sheet rock to give the building a one-hour fire rating. At that meeting, the board decided it did not know enough to make a ruling and postponed the decision until the Oct. 17 meeting.
