Local sportsmen sensing the need for a combined effort to further conserve and protect the nearby game areas are promoting a sportsman club. To date, more than 150 have placed their names on the roster.


Servicemen of the Browerville community were given assurance this week that the proposed club room, sponsored by the members of the VFW and American Legion, will materialize.
