As we go to press it appears that the long debated swimming pool project for the cit has been finally agreed upon, and that active steps will be taken immediately toward the construction of the pool. The members of the park board having agreed to the construction of the swimming pool in Ellery Park, or such other location as may be finally determined by public settlement, all that remains is final action which was expected to be taken last evening by the Park Board, and the raising of the necessary funds to supplement the amount alloted by the government, and everyone will breathe a sigh of relief over what appears to be an amicable settlement of this vexatious problem.

The brand new (so new it isn't finished yet) motel has been in operation over a week. The 16-unit, double decker is located a short distance west of Andrew's Steakhouse.

Quite a lot remains to be done but the proprietors, Mr. and Mrs. Tom Hamilton, say as long as the customers keep coming and apparently are well satisfied with the accomodations, they will happily accept them.

We have delayed the story because we lacked a good picture. The Tribune's ace photographer has been away on vacation. But one of these days soon, we'll have the picture and more detail on the Hamilton Hotel.

And one of these days too, the Hamiltons will have an Open House.

The August water bills will have a new look to the residents of Rugby.

City Auditor Howard Burns said the bills will appear in multi-color form and replace the previous bill. The change has been made since a computer will now process city water bills.

Burns said he wants the public to be made aware of the new appearance of the bill so that they don't think that the new bill is an extra charge.

Burns said the city is awaiting new forms and if they are late, the penalty deadline will be extended.
