Community singing "The Star Spangled Banner"

Benediction by Mrs. Josie Bay.

A children's dance followed the program. The music for which was furnished by Ed Harris, Calvin Harris and Ila Peterson.

In the evening a dance was given a feature of which was a military drill by the men in uniform.

The music for the dance was furnished by the Simpkins brothers orchestra assisted at the piano by Miss Fern Carlston.

Over two hundred people listened to the program and at night the hall was crowded.

This is one of the activities launched and managed by the leaders of the Commercial Club. Many other features are to be put over in the near future if the people will only give the club their support. In order to do this and show your appreciation of what has been done all of the men of the town are requested to meet in the Court Room Tuesday evening Nov. 18 to enroll as Commercial Club members. Let's be Boosters, not Bawlers.
