as mayors of Rural Retreat.

> Following Bob's clue, I looked in Hollinger box

> The booklets showed stations, but not agents until *about*
> 1941.  The one dated Apr. 1941 shows A. H. Price as the
> "T&F" agent -- ticket and freight.
> Next is the issue of Nov. 1, 1954 showing W.A.Price.
> Next is the Oct. 16, 1958 issue - J.L.Akers.
> May have overlooked some of the booklets.
