of the order joined Anthony

The Anthony Wayne band
played several fine selections on

Armistice Day, Tuesday, Nov. 11 will be generally ob

Upon this date the war ended and the terrible carnage
ceased. We, one and all, remember how our hearts were thrill
ed upon the receipt of the glorious tiding because our boys
were there and with the war over they would soon come back to
be again with us, around our firesides.
It is meet and proper that we remember this momentous
day and with each returning anniversary we observe it sacredly.
Therefore, on Tuesday, November 11, I ask that business
be suspended, our public schools close and that we join with our
boys in observing the day which meant so much to them, to us,
and yes, to all Christendom.

FOOT BALL GAME 2:30 P. M.
A year ago, on the 11th of No
vember, the most momentous news
that the world had ever heard was
flashed across the battle fields
and to the homes of our loved
ones here. The greatest military
victory that the world had ever
seen was then and there accom
plished. Whether a man was
serving in France, Italy or Russia,
or whether he had the more trying
duty on this side, he unfalteringly
helped the cause, and so it seems
most fitting that these same men,
now being bound together as a
force for good in this country and
who pledge themselves to build a
new and greater nation of Amer
icans for America, should take an
active part in the first anniversary
of the signing of the armistice.
The governor of each state has
been requested to declare Armis
tice Day, November 11th, a legal
holiday and to designate it as
American Legion Day.

realize that a man in order to be success
ful must be thrifty and economical.
The man who is accustomed to spending all
his earnings is not going to be made over when
he marries and is sure to chafe at the economies
which must then, of necessity, be put into ef
fect. Sensible girls will encourage the young ma n
to save some of his earnings, and sensible young
men had better be on their guard with respect
to the girl who encourages the opposite course.
