The regular meeting of the Jackson Township Sportsmen's association last Thursday night was very well attended and proved one of the most interesting sessions they have had since their organization. The feature of the entertainment was the showing of movies, "Wheels Across Africa," presented through the courtesy of the H. E. Wagner Motor Sales Co. of Johnstown. The Hammer boys of Jackson township rendered some vocal selection which were very well received. Charles Brown won the much ocveted door prise, which this time was a fly rod. The prizes are always nice and well worth going for, not to mention the programs presented at each meeting. The membership in the association is jumping right up too. Shows that the sportsmen are right on their toes.
