- Moline officials have taken a page from the housewife's book and will hold a ``garage'' sale of used equipment. Housewives, however don't usually have a bulldozer taking up space in the basement family room nor do they have traffic signal controls cluttering up the linen closet.

Items also for sale are 26 picnic tables, 15 pieces of deck and patio furniture, an electrical generator, 7 1968-70 model cars, 2 coal baskets, manual typewriters, and 10 pre-cast concrete light poles.
