Frankie Cozzens trav- eled on the Disney Magic cruise ship to the Caribbe- an Islands of St. Maarten and St. Thomas where she visited her granddaughter, Lindsay Cozzens. Lindsay is under contract with Dis- ney Cruise Lines and plays their female villains, most currently the Evil Queen from Snow White. Lind- say's work will take her to the Mediterranean and northern Europe before she returns to New York next fall. Frankie said she had fun watching Lindsay sing, dance and act in several shows. On the way back to the United States, they stopped at Disney's private island, Castaway Cay, in the Bahamas and enjoyed the warm sunshine, beau- tiful blue waters and white sandy beaches. On her 10- day journey, Frankie was accompanied by her son, David, daughter-in-law, Donna, and Donna's moth- er, Gena Pederson. Frankie said this was the cruise of a lifetime. She was veryimpressedbecause everything the cruise ship did was planned for fun and interest. There are several large dining rooms on the Disney ship with special waiters who followed you through your days there and exotic menus to choose from. The group also cele- brated Lindsays birthday with a dinner on the 10th deck of the ship. Mrs. Cozzens also said it was wonderful to watch Linds ay and the shows were like stage show Broadway musicals. She was amazed how large everything was: the dining rooms, the the- ater and the fact that the ship holds 2,500 people and is 10 stories high. It sounds like she indeed had the trip of her lifetime. DRUE TEBBS-MEEK 548-6901 Last week in the Cow- ley news in the paragraph concerning the Pioneer Day celebration, it was stated that a committee has been assigned to contact faculty and staff members who are still living to invite them to the all-school reunion and to let Sally Wilson or Moni- ca Miller know of them and they would contact these people. Monica and Sally are not the committee to help find these teachers. Sorry, Monica and Sally, and I hope you don't get too many calls. The Pio- neer Day Committee will release the names of those to contact.

Students at the school or day care in Cowley will receive the pic- ture during school, or one Byron news Easter Egg hunt this Saturday GARY GRUELL 548-2220 While doing some shop- ping in Lovell over the weekend, I met up with a friend who blasted the School District about the sign in front of RMHS in Byron. His major complaint was the fact that the dis- trict endured the expense of the,, sign knowing that the building w"hld be va- cant, two moths. Anoth- er couple also  'ommented on such a waste of school funds. Just to set the record straight, the sign was pur- chased by the Town of By- ron and with a mutual agreement with the dis- trict, the sign was installed at the expense of the town. The school district had nothing to do with the pur- chase of the sign. They do, however, have equal use of the sign until the closure of the facility in May. As stated before, the sign is way too low for prac- tical purposes. The sign will be raised at least another three feet. It has been sug- gested to raise it 10 feet in order to clear the height of other road signs. To do so, the view of the sign could be seen from either direc- tion at a long distance. This Saturday, the an- nual Easter egg hunt spon- sored by the Byron Lions Club will be held. The event begins at 10:30 a.m. in Jones Park for the toddlers. At 10:45, the preschool- ers will get their chance to hunt for the colorful eggs. At 11, the kindergarten and first-graders will do their hunt at Carter Field, followed by the second- and third-graders at 11:15. The fourth- and fifth-graders' hunt will be at the football field at 11:30. The annual Byron Li- ons Club Auction will be held on April 24 at the By- ron Bar. This event is the club's number one fund- raiser.

Tippets, was bur- glarized and more than $125 worth of goods were made way with. The bur- glars first broke into Bert Marchant's blacksmith shop and helped themselves with sledge hammer, wreck- ing bar and cold chisel, with which they broke off the safe's dial and handle but failed to open it. Entrance to the store was made by breaking the glass win- dow on the left of the door. They also broke into Stan Jameson's barber shop but not a great deal was netted there. The burglars, ama- teurs though they appar- ently were, left no tangible clue, though the officers are investigating. MARCH 28, 1935 The Lovell Chronicle: William Albert Mor- ris, 91, of Frannie, who had been a noted character in this part of the country for many years, died March 23, 1935. Mr. Morris owned the only hbuse between Bill- ings and Lander in the days when Lander was the county seat. He had resid- ed there since 1887, and had entertained many not- ed national figures as wl as outlaws and bad men in his hotel. His only neigh- bors were Indians, and he freighted his supplies from Billings two or three times a year. He is survived by a daughter, Mrs. Frannie Ford, for whom the town was named. The J. P.
