Merrillan (29 June 1967)

Gibson Gile and son, Bob, left early Monday morning on a vacation trip to Alaska. They will drive their Volkswagen as far as Vancouver, B. C., and from there they and their Volks will travel by boat up the Inland Passage to Skagway, Alaska. At Skagway they will travel by train to White Horse and then continue by auto to Fairbanks and Anchorage. On their return trip home, they plan to t ravel by auto down the Alcan Highway. This will all be familiar scenery to Gib, as he worked on the building of the highway in 1943. In charge of the Alcan Highway construction during World War II, incidentally, was Gen. Clarence Sturdevant, a native son of Neillsville.

Members on the review board are: Village President Vilas Smith, Clerk Charlotte Nash, Assessor Sylvia Tolkan, George Purnell has been appointed by the village board as the fourth member.
