The people of the town of Ford evidently have considerable of the same progressive spirit of the Automobile genius for whom the town was named, At any rate, they recently voted to build a town. Now that fact is not remarkable, a new town has to do that sooner or later.
The remarkable thing is the kind of hall they wish to build, one that will cost about $11,000. J. C. Brothers, chairman of the building committee, who was in the city Friday stated that it is planned to make the building the community center. It will be 40 by 100 ft. with a theater, which can be used for dances, basketball and public gatherings of all kinds.
