Surprise Long Distance Call "Long distance calling for Amy Quilling," said the oper- ator. "Speaking," replied Amy. "Thank you for the cookies, Mrs. Quilling, they were deli- cious," said a strange voice. When the voice identified it- self, Amy's eyes grew big and she smiled, her biggestMontana smile. Said the caller, "ThisisJoey Bishop calling from LasVegas, Nev." Amy Quilling frequently sends a touch of home in the form of home baked cookies to her daughter, Brenda. Brenda, a member of the popular sing- ing group, The People Tree, is presently appearing with Jouy Bishop at The Sands in Las Vegas. Recently, Amy included a batch of cookies specially for Joey Bishop. Obviously, the famed television star appreci- ated her effort. Walt and Amy Quilling will be visiting their daughter in Las Vegas very shortly. The People Tree will be ap- pearing on television's Langh- In show Friday, via cable over a Billings Station, according to the Quilling s. :ilman Harris R un For Mayor city councilman Candidacy for Ward Two his inten- the mayor' s post Sidney council Hearing Planned ;axing screen- scheduled in Richland f a Hearing ram spon- ichland County Jay- citizens. in Sidney will be library meeting "12 a.m., 1-4 p.m. - 9 P.m. on Jan. 21 at Savage will be 25 at the school and from 6 to the clinic Jan. 26 from 9- .rn. and 6-9 p.m. gYmnasium. linic school from P.m.

The warm temperatures the past two days have caused them to lose weight and shape drastically. The big fellow, on the left, managed a smile for the Herald photographer, but chances are, the grinning snowman has since dissolved into shape- less mush.
