The names of the donors to this new school building will be inscribed on a tablet placed in the main corridor of the new building. We are most of us forgot ten in a day and surely no public spirited citizen who can afford to do it, and there are those who can, can have his name carried down to posterity with more respect, love and admiration, than by making a subscription of $10,000 to Bel fast’s new school building. The children for many years to come, at least during the life of the building, will see his name on this tablet and appreciate what he has done for them. Belfast has its public-spirited citizens as every other city. That has been dem onstrated during the past few years. In large matters such as this school building proposition, they are here as well, and it only remains for them to find themselves. Belfast is composed of men and women second to no other city in any particular. Any one who does not have that concep tion of his neighbors does not know (hem or even himself. With a new school building such as is anticipated, the High School attendance will in short order be at least doubled and the population of Belfast considerably in creased within a reasonable time. Nothing can more contribute to a pro gressive and larger Belfast than this High School Building. In no other way can our citizens do more to push the up building of the city than through sub scribing to this fund. When this building ; has been accomplished, Belfast will be known not only as the "Best and Smart- | est City in Maine” but second to none in | its educational advantages The only way to raise this $40,00(1 is TO DO IT and everybody contribute his part. We must have at least five and we hope ten $1,000 subscriptions. No amount less than $500 will be solicited from any individual until at least $20,000 has been raised. After this the city will be combed with a tine-tooth comb for such amounts : as each of those remaining are able to contribute. This is a work which belongs to no one or dozen but to every citizen of Belfast. Let every citizen make it his immediate business. The committee will appreciate it if those contributing $500 or more will at once hand their names and amounts to be contributed to the Mayor. Eight : months will be given within which to pay the subscriptions. As soon as the! $40,000 has been subscribed by the public, \ the Trustees of the fund will see that $80,000 Liberty Bonds are at once pur- ; chased to take advantage o4Mhe present i low price, obtaining on the market.

Alumni, an organization including all Chautauquin graduates, who have com pleted a four years’ course in reading and study comprising history, literature, sci ence and art and who have received a diploma from the C. L. S. C. Insti tution of Chautauqua, New York, was held Thursday afternoon, October 9th, at the home of the President, Miss Isabel Ginn. A large attendance of interested C. L. S. C.’s were present. At each an nual meeting some new graduates have finished the Chautauqua course of study and are entitled to membership. At this date five C. L. S. C. students of the 1918 class “The Arthurians” had completed the four years’ Chautauqua work, had received the highest rank and seals with their diplomas, and were admitted to membership. The singing of C. L. S. C. songs and responsive reading, then let ters from absent members were read by the president and secretary. These mem bers whose residences are now in other cities and in some instances in other States remembered the occasion by the written message of cheer and encourage ment; two enclosing quotations expres sing their love for and interest in Belfast Chautauqua Alumni, although several years have passed since they were per mitted to meet with us. Business mat ters received attention and the same offic ers were re-elected for the corning year: President, Miss Isabel Ginn; Vice Presi dent, Mrs. Evelyn Frost; Secretary and Treasurer, Miss L. A.

As the alumni represents C. L. S. C. graduates from C. L. S. C. classes of the year 1888 to the year 1918, these social reunions are much enjoyed. A representative of the "Plymouth Rock” class of 1888. Mrs. A L. MoKeen, and one from the “Argonaut” class of 1889, Mrs. Sarah Lewis, added pleasure to this meet ing. We hope they may be present at many like gatherings. An invitation was given to the dining room to partake of the “Chautauqua Feast” where each guest found a dainty place-card with her name, and a 1 were soon enjoying the feast of delicious food so temptingly arranged. The tables were decorated with bouquets of gladiolus, the class flower of the 1918 graduates. Mrs. A. L. McKeen as toast mistress was responded to by several memoers of the different Chautauqua classes. As all pleasant occasions must have an end so '.bis, the eighteenth alum ni meeting, has passed, but the memory of it will often be recalled by Belfast Chautauquans. City Point.
