The Girl Scouts Troop No. 1 of Williams has brought its circus out of winter quarters in preparation for the first big show this Saturday evening. The American Legion hut will house the big performance, which will include trained animal acts, tight rope walking, the flying trapeze and scores of other circus acts. And just in case anyone is wondering where the wild animals are coming from, it might be of interest to note that some of the Girl Scouts have been transformed into wild animals.

Today, the Mary Tell Investment Company has started razing the building on the corner of First and Grant to construct the new post office. This is the passing of another time and another Williams landmark, that has played an important part in the story of Williams, and it does have a bit of nostalgia. A new post office building has been a need of Williams for quite some time, and it is with a sense of pride the citizenry views this phase of progress.
