CURTISS MAN WINS ATWATER KENT RADIO

Richard A. Gehrke of Curtiss, won the $64. Model 30 Atwater Kent Radio in the contest conducted by Station WHBY of Green Bay. Numerous other prizes were given but the Atwater Kent Radio was first prize in the contest.

The set was delivered to Mr. Gehrke Thursday by the Abbotsford Hardware Co., the local Atwater Kent Radio dealer.

Mr. Gehrke is the well known Maytag man, who demonstrates this famous machine for the Hoff Hardware Co. at Curtiss, and also for the Abbotsford Hardware Co., local dealer for the Maytag washing machine.

In regard to being lucky, it seems to be right in his line as only several weeks ago he won a gold watch for being high man for the Maytag Co., in this territory.
