Marietta butchers at a meeting Thursday night in the Chamber of Commerce building acted favorably upon a resolution to keep their places of business closed on Sundays.
The practice generally followed at present is to open for a few hours on Sunday, some conducting business until 9 a.m. and others till noon.
All but three or four meat dealers were present. A committee was appointed to see the absentees relative to the closing plan. If all markets consent, the plan will be effective soon.
