The Club Meeting
The meeting of the Improvement,
club Monday evening was well at
The "light" refreshments were
served as promised, and i«*r. McCor
mick's hospitality was appreciated.
The various committee made re
ports, which were gratifying and
decidedly encouraging Ihere is
a good amount in the water iront
fund to be used in the proper way
when the proper time comes for
finishing the work of beautifying
the filled plot.
It is with pleasure that we an
nounce that the liext meeting will
be held in the new school building,
the school board after considering
the matter having offered the club
the privilege of holding future
meetings tbrre. This being known
Monday evening it was decided to
defer the matter of electing new
officerb until the first meeting in
the new place, when it is anticipated
a large gathering will take place.
It will be in the nature of a
membership rally, and a committee
will personally intvite all they are
able to come in contact with to be
present and put their names on the
rolls. A program will be prepared
and an enjoyable time is certain.
The meeting will be Monday, Feb

"Hicks at College"
The high school students and j
Prof. Bowler are to be congratu
lated at the unqualified success of
their first entertainment given last
Thursday evening Every seat was
taken, and the receipts greater than
anticipated—about $80. As is the
case when dramatic efforts are
made, some good talent was brought
out, which with proper training and
practice would develop into some
thing out of the ordinary. It is
considered unfair to criticise ama
teur performers, especially at
their first appearance, but few will
take exception to our calling atten
tion to some who seemed to fit their
parts and were more at ease than is
usual. Otto Francis. Elbet Blan
cett, Floyd Carter ar.d Clarence
Randies in the principal speaking
parts were well cast, and gave indi
cations of either previous experience
or close attention to coaching at
rehearsals. Norman Churchill and
George Higgins were peculiarly
adapted to their peculiar characters.
Cecil Carter was the life of the
"rah rahs," and helped to keep
things from freezing.
The girl parts were all well tak
en, but more especially natural
were Laura Eves. Estelle Gerard.
Greta McCrary. Juanita Murray
and Leda Culver.
It would be interesting to gee all
who had parts in this bright comedy
cast in other roles, and it is hoped
an opportunity may be given in the
not distant future.
The Sunday Lecture
The Bible lecture at Oddfellows
hall Sunday afternoon by B. J. Rice
of Bellingham, on "The Three
Worlds." was well attended, and
remarkable attention was given the
speaker for nearly an hour and a
half. Much discussion has follow
ed the lecture because of the stand
he took regarding many vital
doctrinal points. His contention
was that a God of love, justice,
wisdom and power, who foreknew
all things from before the found
ation ot the world, must have had
a plan regarding humanity and that
the Bible clearly showed that it did
not include the everlasting punish
ment of nine hunded and ninety-nine
out of every thousand, but that it
provides for the blessing of all the
families of the earth— every indi
vidual who has lived or will live,
if. after coming to a full know
ledge of the Dlan when "the know
ledge of the Lord shall cover the
earth as the waters cover the great
deep," he accepts it and comes into
harmony with it.

heretofore been attempted in this

will be rendered, the management
announces that there will be special
