Seventeen different towns without associ

the best course to pursue to establish the
work and prepare the way.
The state commlttco has assisted local
boards in securing capable ceneial secre

fore , some having doubled In membership.

through a tremendous ordeal during the

of 140,000 , ineri-aslns with every day , with
no inconio to spcuk of , the association In as
had or oven worse condition than the
finances , and with the membership less than

Now the debt has been raised through the
preat irenoioslty of tbo people of Lincoln in
the face of the hard times of the past sum

activities a re getting under way. and a now

future for the city and for the laigo toiri-
tory throughout which Lincoln exerts BO
great au Intlucnco.
The Hastings association has had n suc
