A group of industrious housewives turned the fellowship hall of Salem United Church of Christ into a sewing center.

Headline news: “Farm Prices Gain” January prices for Wisconsin farmers were up 6% compared to prices received during the same month in 1966. The increase is due to higher milk and crop prices which more than offset lower prices for meat animals, poultry and eggs.
