HORNELL-Hornell's annual Community Chest Drive [[cutoff]] with 7.17 per cent of its goal realized in contributions and pl[[cutoff]] $50,362.00 for the 12 charities covered by the chest.

This percentage, according to Mrs.Charles Eddy, would appear to be slightly larger had all the workers turned in their reports prior to 5 p. m., Wednesday instead of at the report dinner held in the New Hotel Sherwood Thursday. Only these reports appear in this week's figures.

In addition to the figured given on the weekly report sheet, an unexpected gift in the amount of $416.44 was received from the Hornell Civic Theater group. It will be added to the special gifts division.

The town of Almond, which is a part of the Hornell Community chest was awarded an "Oscar" for reaching the highest percentage of its goal. It had a goal of $150 and to date has reported 203.8 per cent or $304.20. Workers there say that there are still a few pledges outstanding in the village and they are expected to be in before the final report dinner Thursday of this week. 

This year's Community Chest in Hornell will benefit both Bethesda and St. James Mercy Hospitals, the Boy Scouts, Camp Fire Girls, YMCA, Salvation Army, Children's Home, Committee for Education on Alcoholism, Steuben County Mental Health Assn., Welfare Assn., USO, and its newest member, the Sister Elizabeth Kenny Foundation.

HORNELL- Members of the retail Division of the Hornell Board of Trade will bring pressure to bear on the members of the Hornell Common Council for immediate action in the purchase and improvement of a second parking lot in the city's business district.

The sudden action on the part of the local merchants comes as the result of an announcement by C. Pfeill Construction of Canaseraga of a shopping plaza soon to be constructed on the Hornell-Arkport Road.

Clarence Pfeill, head of the construction concern, announced last week that they would construct a 10-unit plaza on the 54 acre plot, owned by them, with a play area and parking area that would accommodate 1,000 cars. He said that preliminary plans also allow for the addition of more [[cutoff]]
