A SHINY HUBCAP provided an icy view of Monroe's Main Street this weekfollow- ing the season't second blanket of snow. Cold weather and chilly winds have com.- bined to keep the hazardous driving condi- tions around for awhile. --Staff Photo 32 Families Aid Some 32 families in the Monroe area were provided baskets of food and/or children's presents during the Christmas holiday as a result of a commtmity-wide effort, Mrs. Greta Neal, Christmas Basket Bureau area coordinator, said. A wide variety of groups and organizations helped to make this year's program an overwhelming success, she said. A canned food drive at Monroe's three elementary schools, plus money donated by district employees and secondary students provided 10 families with baskets. The food drive at First Mutual Savings Bank helped another family. d Durin Basket Drive Several churches helped another 10 families. They were: the Meth- odist, Congregational, Christian Re- formed, St. Mary's Catholic, Peace Lutheran and Maltby Congrega- tional. Service and Fraternal organiza- tions filling an additional five bas- kets were: Monroe Lions, Monroe Eagles and the American Legion. Four other baskets were supplied by two card clubs, a 4-H group and the Washington State Patrol. The Community Chest helped two families. The efforts of all these groups were greatly appreciated and help- ed make a happier Christmas for some families Mrs. Neal said. January 11, 1973, Monitor, Monroe, WA, Page Three Unemployments Checks Now Issued B/weekly An unprecedented withholding of Federal Funds earmarked for the administration of the state's un- employment compensation program will necessitate changing operations in local Employment Security offices from a weekly to a biweekly claims schedule R. W. Hutt, Acting Cam- missioner of the department an- nounced. ' 'Because of the Impact of Federal laws reinstating the extendedbene- fit program, the level of unemploy- ment claims had qualified this state for special administrative funding. But withhhlding of these funds has resulted in reduced local office staff and the new claims schedule," Huff said. Claimants should report every other week and claimbeneftts for the past two weeks. As a result re- cipients will no longer receive checks weekly. The loss of funds means $02 fewer staff positions for the first quarter of 1973 and 120 for the second quar- ter.
