"Work has been started on the old C.J.F. Carlson store building on Lewis street, which will be converted into living apartments, it is announced. Guldbeck and Eckstrom purchased the building some time ago, and have been planning the remodeling operations for some weeks, but were delayed.
"With the acute housing shortage that exists in the community at this time, the additional apartments available on Lewis street will help alleviated the condition to some extent."
