A large crowd gathered, w-Jth special reservation for the children and Rotarians. The audience was ushered to seats by Girl Scouts, dressed in their white middies. The list of songs used was typical of all community sings. J. E. John son opened the entertainment by leading in "America". This was fol lowed with more patriotic songs led by Mr. Teeters. Then came that fam ous old song. "My Bonny Lies Over the Ocean", and the way they sang "Bring Back My Bonny to Me" would surely think that Bonny was "Over the Ocean'' to stay. A number of folk songs followed, led by Mr- Bennett. 'Swannee River" and "Old Black Joe" were the favor ites as usual. Next on the program were some special songs sung by the Girl Scouts. The Scouts marched out in double formation and made a very pretty spectacle dressed in their costumes. They sang "School Days" that has made such a hit here in Palatka, also "Let the Rest of the World Go By". ' Everybody joined in the chorus. : After these numbers a few rousing ported to Deputy Livingston on Sun day about noon and he immediatetly got on the job, began running down clues and soon had a negro man un der arrest, who fitted the details as they had been given him. Deputy Livingston says that the footprints of the man correspond to those which were found around the burglarized places. Upon further investigation, it was found that the negro under arrest has a very bad record, having just finish ed serving an eighteen months' sen tence on the county gang of Dade County. The negro gives his name as Cledo Sanders. The evidence against him is not sufficient to send him up for burglary, so he is being held on a charge of vagrancy.
