of entertainment at practically all

some sort of entertainment will take
place of the usual spread when the
nodies met during the week of
ictober 22-26 for the :4th semiannual
gathering for the conferring of the
degrees 01 the rite, and the money
thus saved will be directed into
channels that will aid the country
in the big war.
