It was suggested that this main floor could be made an auditorium and that in stead of building it aliove the pres ent armory, it might be constructed on the lots just east of the city hall the property or the city, which woua give it a street entrance and would probably be some'what less expensive than remodeling the present structure into a two-story building. The cost of the - undertaking, Mr. I Kemminh ,naid fchould not b Viynr , than $10,000, and it could be handled by a bond issue or by public subscrip tion. In any event, it would probably be in charge of some organization that would supervise public gatherings of all kinds. Support could be gained by ; a membership charge. Such an under- j taking, he said, would solve not only the problem of what to do with the boys, but would provide recreation de out tne lact is mat there are not a sufficient numKcr of new books to sat-' isfy the demand. As soon as a bunch of new books arrives, the patronage mounts, until they have circulated, ami then it falls off Again. "The hoy nature is many-sided." Mr. Kemmish said, "and all of them like to read at certain times. If the li brary can furnish them a selection of the kind of l.terature that ap;eal.s to them, they will not overlook the op porunity. If they can't get books, they have to spend another portion of their spare time In other ways. And some of these other ways. Mr. Kemmish pointed out, are more or less mischievous. With the bovs of the city turned loose upon the streets, one of the first things to happen is tome sort of skylarking. Since they are not directed in their play, ftnd have absolutely no supervision, they manage to do a good bit of damaee m the name of having fun. The speaker told of two or three in stances coming under his observation of damages done by skylarking boys.

The city park has suffered in another way from the carelessness of boys, who have, in their play, torn up several young trees by the roots. It requires infinite care and patience to grow trees, and he thought there should be some way of impressing upon the boys the consequences of their thoughtlessness. "A place for recreation, and proper supervision, are needed to care for the boy problem in Alliance," Mr. Kem mish said. "Unless we can get these youngsters to manhood with a sense of responsibility and respect for the property of others, they are missing an essential part of their training, and we are making trouble for ourselves."

'Bridgeport's argument was that the state engineer favored a state aid load that would connect county seats. As I have stated before, the G. P. C. Highway associtaion organization was for the purposes of -selecting a Na tional north and south highway as di rect and feasible as possible, from the Gulf of Mexico to the Canadian border. Everything went lovely until it hit Ne braska, then petty jealousy crept in. You can readily see Governor, had the G. P.
