    Installation was completed today on an air cooler that has been added to the New Market plant of the Shenandoah Locker System. Mr. C.W. Sollenberger, Woodstock, owner of the Shenandoah Locker System, was in town yesterday and expressed his satisfaction with the new arrangement.

    Heretofore, the cooling has been done by circulation of water from the New Market municipal system. Under the new arrangement the refrigerant circulates through the air cooler on top of the building and no water is used.

    Mr. and Mrs. John Fansler returned home on Tuesday evening from their trip to the Southwest. They motored with Mr. and Mrs. O.E Funkhouser to Houston, Texas to spend several weeks with their son-in-law and daughter Mr. and Mrs. Warren E. Branner and family. Mr. and Mrs. Fansler spent three days with the Branners and toured the surrounding area of Houston. Leaving there Friday morning they headed for Mexico, arriving on Saturday and spending the day sightseeing in Monterey. Leaving Laredo, Texas Sunday morning, they then stopped in Austin, Texas for dinner, spending Sunday night and then heading for home. They reported an enjoyable trip.
