Johnstown-Monroe School opened Tuesday with a record-breaking 761 enrollment the first day. Last year 670 students reported the first day. Superintendent A. J. Kauber had reported an anticipated enrollment of 714. In 1954 the enrollment was 617 and 622 in 1955. It jumped to 633 two years ago and now appears to be scheduled for even greater hikes in the future. The new Rolling Meadows development was credited with bringing the figure to its all-time peak.

The Johnstown Sportsman's Club hosted an estimated 2,500 at Swappers Day. Men are the only ones who donated at the gate and judging by the fact that 983 paid their 50 cents to enjoy the day, the estimate cannot be far off. There were 169 dogs competing for the prize money. This year also marked the first time that mechanical rides had been used as entertainment for the kids.

Johnstown Concrete is now in operation at the junctions of route 37 and 310, southeast of Johnstown. Johnstown Concrete is a subsidiary of Newark Concrete Co. and was established to bring lower cost concrete to this growing vicinity. General manager T. Dye Barnhouse expressed the belief that Johnstown is one of the most progressive communities in central Ohio and is one of the few that can boast a concrete plant.
