Plans for the Legion picnii: are
shaping rapidly. Number of , cit'zens-1
responded to the Legion's appeal for
funds for the barbecue dinner, and,
while not as much was contributed j
as last year it is thought that ?y~
will be sufficient funds to provide .a
good barbecue dinner in addition to
the baskets which the ladies of the
community will furnish. ? However,
more funds are needed for,incidental'
expenses and those "who have., not
contributed and wish to do so n
see Frank B. Reece or W. A. '..???r"
and leave with thc-m ~u coiflRSfftioiL..
of one dollar or less. A committee- of-1
ladies, wTll call on the housewives for
pledges of picnic baskets ^and : it is
hoped that the ladies will respond as
they always do when the ex-soldiers
ask assistance in staging their annual

Col. Bailey says the show is an ex

well received everywhere they have
gone. About thirty boys, including
an orchestra, make up. the minstrel
troup. Popular prices will be charged,
probably 25 and 35 cents and the

basis; the Legion's share will be
used for general picnic expenses,

Last year many people wfere pleas
ed with the Legion picnic because it
made them forget their Roubles for
a day; this is what the Legion wants
to do-cause the. people to forget
business cares and worries for one
day and enjoy themselves. The mer
chants will close their stores from
noon until three oclock so ail may

nic, but be sure to carry a picnic
basket so. the Legion will not have to

me that if I could choose butor

^On-ly those of us,who;have bee:
reared in the fear and admonitioi
of the conventionalities know wha
a poignant shock it is to go to cer
tain churches and hear the congrega
tion clap and applaud, with th
preacher's earnest approval. I did no
think I could bear to hear them cia]
on Easter Sunday. My rebellion
thoughts on the subject might coun
teract any good the service would d<
me. To me a church is a sacred plac<
and clapping is secular. \
So this day, I chose a new church
one* which I had never attended. M3
best friend here, a Southern girl
went with. me. I think I induced he:
to leave her own rchurch, because
perhaps in this new and untriec
congregation, we might find new in
spiration. With high hopes ,we ap
proached the churchx doors,
i The crowd. was so large that w?
could not, at first find entrance. Thej
[ were finishing the Sunday school
service. Suddenly there came the un
mistakable sound of loud applause,
My friend reeled, almost overcome,
We looked at each other resigned.
Jhere was no other place to go, so
late, and the cheering had broken
the quiet, sweet spell of Easter.
Such is Tonkawa, among the Ton
kawaians. The service began with
the observance of The Lord's Sup
per. They did not say "If' you are a
member of our church/you may .par
take," but rather seemed ' -to say,
"Partake all ye that are weary a^d
heavy laden." If they had asked for
my church, I should have perhaps re
plied, "I am a Christian, for above
creeds there is a universal brother
hood. But in saying that, I should
have misled them, for this was the
Christian church. '. - >
The West is broad like the plains,
but I sometimes wonder whether it
is broad from a consciousness that
broadness is better than narrowness.
I wonder if they have thought cus
toms and conventionalities through,
and declared them good or bad.. My
conclusion is that the pioneer spirit
broke down barriers; forbade by very
necessity social distinctions, and pro
duced a certain laxness that causes
some commendable customs, " but
others that are dangerous.
We left the church at the conclu
sion of the service and on our way
home, saw two or- three enormous
loads of hay, being hauled through
the town. The ploughmen and .their
horses were homeward plodding their
way, though it was Sunday. And
that is how the lack of conventions
came to be, by necessity for hard
work," crushing out fun and refine-,
ment. Long hours were needed to cut
and thresh the wheat.. ' They used
