On Sunday, Aug. 3, at 2 p.m. at the Hartford Fairgrounds, the Junior Fair Dormitory will be dedicated to Mr. George Kreitler, long-time county agent of Licking County. After the dedication service, the public will be invited to inspect the new dormitory. The new dorm was constructed by the Vocational Agriculture Department of the Hartford Fair District through contributions from 4-H Clubs, Granges, many business firms and individuals. The building is 66 feet wide and 75 feet long, with shower facilities. It will house 150 boys.

The Miller E.U.B. Church, the Alexandria Baptist Church, the Concord Baptist and Harmony Baptist were among the churches in Licking County that have been notified that they have been granted a new organ from Claude Foster, Cleveland millionaire. Foster gave these organs to churches who could not afford to buy new ones, because he said that he didn't like to hear music played on an old piano that was out of tune. Originally he had planned to give 500 organs away but after receiving so many applications, he raised the number to 700. Foster has made a fortune with his inventions and has given away seven million dollars.

This coming Sunday is the date that the 100th Hartford Fair gets under way and what a fair it promises to be. William Arter, secretary of the fair board, says that entries for the 100th fair are up even more than last year when there was a 20 percent increase in fair entries. This year, centennial year of the fair, several more attractions have been added including the centennial celebration contest, additional day of harness racing and many other features.
