VOL. 52 THIRTY-FIVE NEW, Chairman of Membership Committee of Commercial Club Does Splen did Work in Getting Members THE BAND LEADER IS LET GO Employment Bureau Established and Committee Appointed to Further the Y. »M. C. A. Project The meeting of tlie Commercial club hold last Friday evening was well at tended, there being some two hundred members present. The fact that the club had as it's guests a number of business men who were here in con nection with the demonstration at the Denison bottling works made the oc easion a pleasant one. Considerable business came up be fore the club at this meeting and prob ably the most important was the fa tnre of tho Denison band. For some time there has been considerable dls satisfaction manifested with the pres cut band leader among the business men and of late it has been taken up by members of the band until it came to a point that unless a new leader was secured the organization would break up. The Commercial club has been backing the new band and it was through .them that Mr. Oibler, the present leader, was secured. His sal ary was guaranteed by the Commer cial club and in addition to this the club advanced the funds for the new uniforms and several band instru ments. After a discussion of the af fairs of tho band a motion was made that the club cancel the contract with the present leader, which passed with out a dissenting vote. Mr. \V. R. Kahler spoke for the members of the band and stated that they appreciated what the Commercial club had done towards helping to organize the band and that with a new leader the organ ization would grow and be better than ever. He stated that there Wafe no chance of the baud breaking up and that already they had prospects of lilt ing the vacancies in the organization caused by some of the members join ing the national guard. H. E. Mote, secretary of the club, made the report of the band carnival held at the gymnasium recently and which was printed in the Review-sev eral weens ago. The big surprise of the meeting was the report of Mr. George Naeve, chair man of the membership committee, jpapCrfced ibe usiiics of thirty-five for membership. The rules of the clnb were suspended and the secretary was instructed to «ast the full vote of the club In favor of all. Those who join ed are as follows: J. V. Barborka, Geo. Boslaugh, Marion McCord, 10d Kusel, H. B. Fishel, John C. Kott, Lenihan Lally, Frank Pfarr. Thos. Varlamos, George Brodersen, Clias. C. Kemmlng, Jr., W. K. Mason, D. E. Voss, O. H. Knief, Oscar Lehmann, George Sav ory, Herman Adams, Arthur Sarery, Ellsworth MeNeal, Clias. Jaconsen, Carl Caswell, Henry Graves. Henry Christiansen, E. Jenkins, H. C. Kolls, James Anderson, Win. Rockwell, John H. \V4tke, Emil Jensen, Walter Loch ,miller, J. M. Meehan, James O'Connor, E. A. Geroclt and T. J. Burke. At a .previous meeting Mr. Naeve stated that he would see to it that enough new members were brought into the club to make soinc needed improve ments and he certainly made good his promise. Tho club has a membership JIOW of almost 250, which is certainly a good record and much credit for this large membership is due Mr. Naeve. The president of the club stated that Mr. Winans, of Deloit. had spoken to him of bringing the reunion of his or ganization to/Denison this summer. Denison Is in tho Little Sioux district, comprising twenty counties, and means that between two and three hundred people would bo in attend ance. The encampment would last ten days. The club authorized the secretary to extend an invitation to tho Latter Day Saints to hold their reunion in Denison and offered them the free use of the city park together with free lights and water. It is hoped that they will accept the invi tation extended them. Tho matter of establishing an em ployment bureau came up for discus sion and the secretary was authorized to establish such a bureau. The pur pose of this bureau will be to supply farmers with help whenever it is de sired. Those who desire to secure work on farms should hand In their names to Mr. R. E. Mote at the Craw ford County State bank and farmers who arc In need of help can apply to him there. A bureau of this kind will prove of great benefit to both farm hands and farmers and will be appre ciated by all. Mr. Geo. Naeve spoke in regard to the sale pavilion and tie ham and stat ed that although some $8,r00 in stock had beon subscribed there was a feel ing among the business men that it is too big a project to undertake at this time. It is'now proposed to build a Y. M. C. A." building on the site of the Laub livery barn, which could be used by both boys and girls. The building would bo 100x112 feet and considerable space could be devoted to a gymnasium. Mr. Naeve impress ed on all present there was need of such a building in Denison and that it would be a move in the right di rection. 1 Supt. C. 10. Humphrey told of the ad vantages to be obtained with such an institution and stated that it was not cnly for the benefit of the boys and girls, but the grtwnups as well could derive much benefit from it. He spoke •of having visited the Y. M. C. A. at Council Bluffs recently and there saw a class of business men, many of'them gray haired, at work In the gymnasium playing volley ball. Prpfessor Hum phrey said tb^t every business man in ivteiiart uim Denison needed such exercise and that the quicker they realize it and get it the better it would be for all. Mr. Naeve made a motion that a committee of five be named by the chair to investigate the feasibility of a Y. M. C. A. building for Denison, which motion passed, and the chair ap pointed C. L. Voss. Geo. McHenry, Geo. Naeve, Supt. C. E. Humphrey and Prof. P. N. Olry to act. Mr. Naeve reported that there Is a possibility that a sale pavilion will be erected here by some one in the near future and that there is some talk of a tic barn. Denison certainly needs both and we believe that it will not be long before they will be available. In regard to the moving of the coun ty fair grounds from Arion to Deni son, Dr. L. M. Coon reported that noth ing had been done since the last meet ing. At present the committee is ne gotiating for suitable grounds and nothing definite can be arranged un til the June meeting of the club. The Western Union received a hard jolt at the meeting and the club pass ed a resolution that each member sign a petition asking that the company in stall an uptown office in' the near fu ture. With the office located at the Northwestern passenger station the employees there do not have time-to attend to it properly as their other duties are so numerous. The service is almost as bad as none at all and the people of Denison believe that the Western Union Telegraph company should improve it by having an uptown office. The petition was generairy signed and will be forwarded within a few days to the proper officials. It was decided by the club to give a farewell reception to Mr. and Mrs. W C. VanNess some time the last of this month. Mr. VanNess has been a member of the club since it was first organized and everyone present was of the" opinion that it would be fitting and proper to give this estimable couple a send off before their depart ure. It was the sentiment of the mem bers of the club that no one in Deni son has ever done more for the boys and girls of Denison and Crawford county than Professor and Mrs. Van Ness and that the community would suffer a distinct loss at their depart ure.' The entertainment will be in charge of the committee and invita tions will be issued soon. Work producing food will become more popular when farmers become known as agriculturists. At present prices food is getting to be a good deal pf a luxury. Many of the farmers won't raise potatoes because they,think the ama teur gardeners are going', to --plant so many and the amateur gardeners won't plant the'ni because the farmers arc going to raise such a lot.

PERKINS IS HIGHLY HONORED Husband of Former Denison Girl Ap pointed President Board of Re gents, Washington University MAN OF AFFAIRS IN SEATTLE For Many Years Col. Perkins Was the Leading Citizen of Bismarck, N. D.—Went West in Year 1893 The Bismarck (N. D.) Tribune has the following to say about Col. William T. Perkins, whose wife was Catherine Laub, of this city, and who has visited here a number of times in the past. We are pleased to publish the matter which is of a complimentary nature about Mr. and .Mrs. Perkins, who are so closely related to Denison people. The item follows: Through 1«. D. Hoskins, former clerk of the supreme court, now sojourning in Seattle, con-.e-i a copy of the Post Jntclllgencer. which devotes more than a column to announcing the ap pointment of Col. William T. Perkins to the presidency of the Washington State university board of regents. Col. Perkins, for .years one of Bismarck's leading citizens, recently returned to the capital city to investigate the pos sibilities of North Dakota flax in con nection with a larse American linen project in which he is interested. His many friends here will he glad to learn of the new honor which lias come to him in the west. "Colonel Perkins, the new president of the board of regents, has been a member of tho board since Jan. 1, 1914, and was reappointed two months later for a full six year term," says tfic Post-Intelligencer. "He is presi dent of the Northern Securities com pany, secretary of tho Northern Co operative & Development company, and the Alaska Midland Railroad com pany. He has been a resident of Se attle and Alaska since 1893, having been among those who joined in the Klondike rush. "Colonel Perkins is 59 years old. .was born in Buffalo, N. Y„ where he attended the public schools, and later attended the New Hampton Lutheran institution. He studied law in tho office of former United States Sena tor William P. Frye. of Maine, later in the law school of the University of Michigan, from which he graduated in 1884. He subsequently removed to. Bismarck, N: D.. where .he- was & 'member of thfi city council, school board and clerk of the school for a period of twelve years. "Colonel Perkins was for ten years superintendent of the schools of Bur leigh county, N. D.. and served as president of the North Dakota State Educational association. He was ap pointed a colonel on the staff of Gov. Andrew Burke of North Dakota in 1892. He was strongly backed for appointment for, governor of Alaska to succeed Governor Brady in 1895." The food speculators tare having their innings now but tile American people have two strikes and no balls called on 'em. Some people's first tliot on enter ing tho war period is how in thunder to ninkc some more money out of it. About the only gain achieved by those fellows who get married to es cape military service, is that they get a petticoated commander.

To train women for effective Red Cross service work the University of Iov.-a will give a special eight weeks' course, beginning June 18th and end ing August 17 th. The purpose will not be to train Ued Cross nurses. That cannot be dore in so short time. Besides, the government already has the nurses. It will be rather to train workers for capable home service—making of com forts for soldiers at the front, care of the poor, relief work among persons left dependent by the departure of soldiers, and other kinds of communi ty welfare work made necessary by tiie war. The need of careful preparation for such work is great. Already much ef fort has been wasted by volunteer workers through lack of understand ing of what they're to do and how to do it well. For the university's brief courr.e all the special facilities of the college of medicine, the nurses' training school, the department of homo economics and the bureau of social weltare will b« concentrated. Expert instructors will be in charge of the classes and will push the work vigorously. The work will cover such subjects as ele mentary hygiene, home dietetics, prep aration of surgical dressings, first aid, physical culture, social service, nurs ing and child care and neighborhood sanitation. Miss Mary C. Haarer, superintend ent of the nurses' training school, and herself a Red Cross nurse, will direct the course. She has already visited Washington and New York to get ex pert assistants and to observe similar work there. "This is one of the most important things the university has ever under taken,'* Pres. W. A. Jessup declared In giving opt news of tiie j?.lan. ''ft-throws open the "facilities of the-institution to welfare work in a greater way than ever before. "Hundreds of Iowa women ought to take this course. Few of them can be Red Cross nurses, but many must be workers in other lines of Red Cross work. Just as there must be twenty men back of the line engaged in sup port service to keep one man on the firing line, so there must bo many women and girls at work at home mak ing supplies and carrying on other work for every woman at the front in the relief stations and hospitals. "Every college woman who is not obliged to do something else this summer ought to take this course to tit herself to do effective Red Cross service 'work at home and to instruct others in her iiome community to do this work. This course is open to any girl more than sixteen years old." Out of those who finish the eight weeks' course those who are recom mended by the- Rod Cross authorities may be selected for additional train ing of two weeks in the hospitals hero to tit them to be "Red Cross nurses' aids" in the active service at base hos pitals and elsewhere. The United States takes pride in its strong position completely shel tered: from hariu by the poyer of thfc British navy. The speed with which congress pass cd the .selective draft was not merely a magnificent display of patriotism, but also a desire to get re-elected. You can get' a crowd to the movie theatres by advertising the Ten Sins, but whether you would get the same number of people by advertising the Ten Virtues is open to question. NORTH DAKOTA DEVELOPING Land Near Medina, Known by Many Crawford Coun|ty People, Sells for Good Prices The Medina Citizen, Stutson county, N. !.. reports the sale of a large tract of land just soutli of the town 6f Me dina. This land is known by a num ber of our people and it will he of especial interest to them to know of the activity of real estate in North Da kota. The business in that section of the country seems to be developing and land is being sold more rapidly than at any time for several years. Tho Citizen says: "L. II. lleiny, of Plymouth, Iowa, aud his brother. 1. V. Ileiiiy of Manly, the same state, spent a couple of days the latter part of last week here with W. F. Andres, leaving for their homes Friday evening. While here they made a deal for the farm of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Kossack, consist ing of three quarters just south of town, for which we understand they paid something like $1S.000. The buildings are just about a half a mile from town and the farm itself is a good proposition for mixed farming. One of the brothers expects to move here with his family next fall and make the farm their future home and engage in the stock business. In con versation with them they stated that our schools had considerable weight in deciding to locate at tills point.
