The Fairview Hose Company last night added its endorsement to the 'Nickel-A-Week' plan for industrial expansion in the Mauch Chunks, taking this action at its regular meeting held in the company headquarters, East Mauch Chunk.

President Frank Thamarus Jr. was in charge.

The plan was explained by Joseph L. Boyle. The plan is designed to raise $125,000 over a five-year period through a three-pronged "painless payment" program.
