* WITH 'rE CIVIC LEAGUE
* * * * * * *. * * * * * * *
The Civic League has been much
gratified by the hearty response given
to the call for "clean-up" week. Our
city is not only improved In appear
ance but healthier and more sanitary
for this little effort.
Another note of encouragement is
the iway in which -the men have shown
their approval of what is being done,
by their ready response to an invita
tion to become associate members of
the League by the contribution of one
dollar a year. Having already offered
a prize of $10.00 for the most attrac
tive lawn, the League has decided to
offer a second .prize of $5.00 for the
most improved lawn; realizing how
diflicult it will be to judge these lawns
as some are naturally more beautiful.
while -Ctllers will have had a great deal
miore time and labor spent upon them.
The children trying for the prettiest
flower garden .will also have a second
chance in a i;rize of $2.50. These gar
(lens should measure at least three by
twelve feet. and will be judged the
last of June. Free flower seed can
be had by applying to Mrs. W. L.
Gray, as long as the supply lasts.
