     The community's prosperity mav be gauged by the fact that Kewaskum's
aluminum ware and concrete mixers go into every civilized country of the
world. These two industries employ about 150 iren the year around. The bank
cf Kewaskum does a business of over a million dollars a year.    Farming
and
doiryinr, however, command first place in the rural community. A mammoth
dairy with 40,000 to 50,000 pounds of milk in the summer supplies part of
the city of Chicago with pure fresh milk.    Kewaskum has five rural routes.
