"Be a booster! Put your shoulders
to the wheel and boost!" was the slo
gan expressed from beginning to end
of the banquet and program given last
evening in Odd Fellows ball by TJcal
ledge, No. 608, I. O. O. F. to advance
plans for the building that is to be the
home of the Odd Fellows within less
than a year's time. The spirit evi
denced throughout the meeting augurs
well for the success of the building
project, and it promises to continue
till the lodge has a home of its- own.
There were more than 200 Odd Fel
lows present last evening. Following
an elaborate banquet, Jerry E. Wood
in, acting as toastmaster, explained
the purpose of the meeting and then
called for the first number of the eve
ning's prpgram. And every number
of the program was featured by the
booster slogan and enthused the men
who had assembled in the interests of
Hon. C. J. Searle, prominent barris
ter and politician, was the first speak
er. He said In his address that the
Mississippi valley promises to be the
controlling section of the country
within a very short time. He said that
inasmuch as the valley is expanding, it
is up to Rock Island to expand and
that the Odd Fellows can do thetr
share by building a home of which
Rock Island will be proud.
MAYOR IS EMPHATIC.
Mayor H. M. Schriver was the next
speaker. In no uncertain terms did
he state his views on the local situa
tion as far as boosting is concerned.
He said that if men would only stop
standing on street corners and knock
ing, .and change their tactics by aid
ing city officials and others in the con
duct of their duty, things would be
accomplished and there would be a
greater Rock Island. He advised the
Odd Fellows to put their shoulders to
the wheel and build the home without
cringing and delaying. Senator A. F.
Landee of Moline told in his address
of the feat accomplished In Mollne
told in his address of the feat accom
plished in Moline through the build
ing. He said that it was equally pos
sible for Rock Island to erect a home
that will bring credit to the organiza
tion and at the same time, will ad
vance the lodge fellow ship, socially
and fraternally. E. C. Turner of Cam
bridge who was here when the present
hall was dedicated, concluded the
evening's program. Other program
numbers were given by Mrs. L. L.
