Plans for the installation of a cafeteria in the basement of the Lebanon High School was fully discussed yesterday afternoon at a called meeting of the PTA. Action, however, was deferred to a date in the near future.
By providing a well-balanced nourishing, hot lunch at a nominal cost each day between noon and 12:50, the usual recess period between morning and afternoon classes may be shortened, the need for students to leave the building for their meals in inclement weather would be alleviated and rural pupils attending the local high school would no longer have to prepare and bring lunches with them.

Stolen jewelry recovered
A Lebanon police detective recovered approximately $30,000 worth of jewelry that was stolen from a West Main Street home in October.
Detective Dennis Griffin said he recovered two rings and a watch after cultivating a lead he received from an informant. The stolen goods Griffin retrieved included a three-carot diamond ring valued at $20,000, a diamond watch worth $5,000 and a sapphire ring valued at $5,000.
Griffin said the owner of the jewelry was lucky that it was recovered, and he encouraged Lebanon residents to keep their jewelry locked in safety deposit boxes or safes when they weren’t wearing it.
He also said the expensive jewelry should be insured.
