Following this stunt. Walter A Ro

acted in the capacity of toastmaster,
introduced Mr. Clum, who is secre

I would like to see is a get-together

unite the tri-cities in a campaign for
more industries, and which will make
the entire country sit up and take
notice of the three cities, which are

erly worn over anything but the latest corset modeL It's a short
