We would like to commend the honesty of two young Cazenovia girls, Martha Seebach and Sandra Barr, who turned a diamond ring in to our office on August 29. A woman came in and positively identified the ring the next day...We find that we have misplaced the name of the owner of the ring. We are running this story so that she can contact and thank these young ladies involved, who by their example showed that they are among our finest citizens.

Dr. Robert Schramm, Cazenovia Volunteer Fire Department Physician, took five members of the Fire Department's First Aid Squad on a field trip through St. Joseph's Hospital, Syracuse, Tuesday evening.
