Great Anniversary
Marion County Post No. 27 of the
American Legion has decided to have
la reunion of all Marion county ex
service men in Ocala as a celebration
of Armistice Day. Because of th
fact that the day comes on Saturday
this -year and so few of the boys
will be able to leave their work on
that day of the week, the reunion will
be held on Friday, Nov. 10th. All ex
service men are invited to Some to
Ocala on the 10th and renew old ac

made for an elaborate celebration but
a few good speeches and musical

A. W. O. L. from work Saturday
Last night the local post of the
American Legion held its regular
monthly meeting at the armory. A
Marge number of the boys were on
I hand," several' of whom' had not" ben
to a meeting for some time past. The
post voted to meet bi-monthly instead
of monthly and the meeting nights
were set for the first and third Wed
nesday nights in each month. ,

County Post No. 27 should hold an

every man present, borne felt that
it was not up to the legion to promote
a celebration and others felt that it
was up to somebody and no one else
had .taken the job so they thought
the legion should make the start.

the floor it was decided to have a cele
