Out of the Past

• One of the most spectacular fires seen in Williams in a considerable time occurred in the south outskirts of Hollywood about nine o'clock Monday night and when the blaze was finally extinguished only the charred walls remained. The structure was at the extreme south city limits and it was necessary for the fire department to string hose for three blocks over rocky and rough terrain so that the house was doomed by the time the water reached it.

• The 1957 football season opens on Friday for Williams High School when the team travels to Kingman to meet last year's champions, the Kingman High School. The early outlook for the prospects of the local team are not too bright, nor are they too gloomy, as the team is expected to make up a lot of what it lacks in reserve strength in its determination to fight to the end.

• During the past weekend some of the Woman's Club members and their husbands got together at the Little Tot's Park to do some cleanup work and some general repair. The culverts were secured in the ground so that they may not be moved around. Some painting was done and more is planned before the snow flies. A trash can rack was made so that there will be a set place for cans. Most important of the work done was the installation of the water fountain. The fountain was placed in the playground so that children using the playground could have some source of water.
