Morris' grocers were a jovial gang when they gathered recently to fix up the display in the Unger Furniture store of 12 baskets of groceries which they are giving away Wednesday. But whether it was the coffee from Cy's Coffee shop which they were enjoying so much, or whether they just felt good inside because of the groceries they were donating, they failed to explain. In the picture are Darrell Sifers of Cy's Coffee shop doing the honors; Everett Sommers of the Red Owl Store; L.E. McRoberts of Loeffler and McRoberts; George Juergensen of the Super Valu; Eddie Schuler of the National Tea Store; Willie Martin of Harts Super Market; and Art Splitstoser of the People's Food Market.
