Copy Needed On Tuesday For Next Week's Free Press The fact that Monday, July 5, is a holiday means the Free Press will face the problem of getting next's week's issue out at the us- ual time. There will be no mail service and the Free Press hopes that its rural reporters will help out by bringing in or sending in their news envelopes to the newspaper office before noon Tuesday. Other regu- lar news contributors and ad- vertisers are asked to have copy in by Tuesday as the typesetting machine turns out only six lines of type per minute and cannot be speeded up to handle a glut of late copy. We know we can count on the usual o- operation and wish you a happy July Fourth holiday. i7 Cheney High School Students Earn Honor Status Fifty-seven Cheney high school students made grade point averages of 3'.5 or bet- ter to win places on the se- mester honor roll.
