Having a large beach situated close

Maynard-Price Post. No. 52. American Legion, takes this method of
extending to the citizens of Pullman an expression of [appreciation for

helped push over what the men of the post had started.
It Is this spirit of co-operation in a cause for the common good that
makes communities really worth while, and Maynard-Price post will be

this instance and give material assistance in any movement tended to
