Upon the liberality of the people of the City of Toledot, depends whether we are to have a place of amusement or not. It is Just ns important to pro vide entertainment for the people a& to provide housing facilities, and is Just one of the many increased respon sibilities that come to us with the in crease in population. This building will be moved to a po sition nearer the center of the City, where suitable ground has already been secured, It will serve as an ad ditional display building for County Fair purposes as well as an Armory, Club House and Ball Room. It is tho present plan to construct same so that the ball room will be reserved for dancing only. The removal of the Club House Is too big a financial undertaking for the American Legion without outside assistance limsmuch as it will cost ap- proximately $2000.00 and the total WANTS MAN each on hand of the local Post Is Miss Bornadin0 Rossell of No. 8, about $400.00.

The City Council objected to the material which tha company intended using for this work, hence the change of program. The company planned on using old bridge stringers for this work.
