Clarence C. Jones The Quincy people have a trustworthy and competent representative in C. C. Jones. Mr. Jones is the only member of the Board who is truly a native. He was born in Quincy township and attended Quincy High School. After finish¬ ing; here, he took a business course in the Val- pariso Business College. Taking a position with the Jonesville Milling Co., he was given charge clarence c. JONES of the entire commercial department of the com¬ pany. In 1899, he located in Quincy and took charge of a similar department in the cement plant, where be began to study the industry of cement manufacture. He has attained a thorough working knowledge of the business and is considered an authority on the subject of cement making. At the annual meeting of the Portland Cement Company, recently held at Cold- water, he was elected Vice-President and also made General Superintendent of the Quincy plant. Mr. Jones is a citizen of whom we may be proud. We believe in the old maxim, “still water runs deep,” and, that Mr. Jones is not an exception to the rule. He thinks much before arriving at conclusions, and, when once formed, they are worthy of consideration. The people, his constituents, have in Mr. Jones a wide-awake, up-to-date, interested school representative—one in whom they mav have absolute confidence. General Agent here. This position he has held honorably and capably for twenty-three years. Mr. App is also a member in high standing in the K. of P. Podge. It is safe to say that Mr. App firmly believes in boys and girls, and no other member of the Board is more interested in their welfare than he. (The foregoing sketches were written by Edward R. Lampman.)
