Depot Here Hotel Cimarron, end Muiie -. And Speeches Were Fine The Chamber of Commerce ban' quet given at the Cimarron hotel last night was a function "which may be looked back upon as a marked epoch in the affairs of the organiza tion and the city of Liberal. The - dinner itself was especially good and the speeches brought to light a broad vision of Liberal as it is now, as it should be now and is it ought to be in the future; a vision which cannot fail to be an inspiration to the pa triotic men of the city and county who were present. The affair was planned in part for a pleasant visit between members of . the Chamber and representatives from the agricultural district of the surrounding country. Thirty guests were invited from the farms and ranches, selected with a view of hav ing different localities in the county representd. The committee in charge charge could find no dining room large enough to accommodate the number desired, so were forced to limit attendance to 100. The Hutchinson Chamber of Com merce furnished the two speakers from outside, John M. Starr, presi ent of the Hutchinson Chamber and the Rev. Father M. L. Kain, rector of th Episcopal Church at Hutchinson. Mr. Starr spoke on "What the Chamber of Commerce Should Be to a'City" and pictured an earnest, un selfish organization, looking always to the future; giving attention to the mental, physical and spiritual wel fare of the community; on organi zation which should plan for the edu cation of the young, for the proper recreation of all. While his talk was a very earnest one, it was punctuated with wit and was highly entertain ing as well as instructive. , Rev. Kain whom Mr. Starr brought with him as the speaker of the even ing, made a wonderfud address. His subject as announced was "Amer icnlsm" and in part was an eloquent appeal for the ideals of the founders of the nation ; for a truer education for the young, for more helpfulness and friendship among the people of each community. The audience felt tha it was listening to inspiring counsel high ideals and. genuine oratory; Father Kain spends a great deal of time working with the boys of Hutchinson.
