BORN - To Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Decker at the home of Grandpa and Grandma V. C. Miks last Sunday night a find baby girl. Due to so much excitement Grandpa Miks had to be place in a padded cell in the city jail all day Monday. Although not dangerous he was so enthused that it was thought he might in some way harm himself. He was feeling much better late Monday night and was released, but disappeared immediately and was not found until shortly before we went to press. When located he was muttering to himself "Why couldn't it have been a boy."
