MIDDLESEX-  January 21, 1952.   

. Wilfred Kennedy recently purchased the former A. K. Slack garage and electric welding shop, which he will use in connection with his garage for storage and some work on trucks. Mr. Slack discontinued his business there, during the mid-summer of 1950, to become employed by the S. C. Emerson Produce Company, Inc.

. Donald Payne moved last week to the "Moshier home," in West Avenue, now owned by Hilman Underwood. The house vacated by Mr. Payne was recently purchased by Mr. and Mrs. Marshall Monagle, who now occupy it with their family. Mr. Payne, an expert in the poultry and egg business, will be employed by the Emerson company.

. R. J. Armitage, who was confined to his home last week with a virus infection, returned to his duties in Geneva on Monday.

. Mr. and Mrs. James H. Underwood will close their home in this village on Friday, and leave for New York, where Mrs. Underwood and their three children will leave from LaGuardia Field for a visit of several weeks with her parents, Dr. and Mrs. T. F. Minford, in Randalstown, Northern Ireland. During Mrs. Underwood's absence, Mr. Underwood will pursue a course of study in Hartford, Conn., for instruction as a life insurance representative. Upon completing his course, he will he located in Rochester where he will be associated with the main office staff of the Travelers' Insurance Company. We are sorry to lose Mr. and Mrs. Underwood and their family, who have become nicely established in our village, but we are pleased that he has received this fine promotion.

The insurance, for which Mr. Underwood has been the representative in Middlesex, will be taken over by John Gibbon, of Potter, who is taking a course of study in Hartford in preparation for this work; we wish him success in his new field of endeavor.
