Keasbey : Fords : South River NEIGHBORING TOWNS Woodbridge Sayreville Sewaren Keyport Metuchen Mat a wan K. A. C. WILL PRESENT PLAY IN NOVEMBER Sprcial to the EVEN WO NEWS. Woodbrldge, Aug. 15:—The Kiflg wood Athletic Club is making plans to give another play in Masonic hall on Thursday evening, November 17. On account of the great success of the throe-act comedy drama of Col lege Life, whicS was given last March, the people of Woodbrldge have urged the club members to en tertain again with another play. At a recent meeting of the club it was resolved that a committee be ap pointed to look after this affair, which was immediately done. The committee held a meeting at the Woodbridge hotel a week ago Fri day. Several plays were suggested, as "Oak Farm" and several other dramas, which were not suitable. The play the club decided to be given is entitled "Among the Berk shires, or New England Folks," a rural drama in three acts, by An thony E. Wills, the same author who wrote the "College Chums." A book reading meeting and oth er business will be held at the home of Barron ,T. Schroder, in Rahway avenue, tomorrow night. The Kingwood Athletic Club Is progressing rapidly, adding many new members to the roll at each meeting. The hundred mark will soon be reached. President H. E. King, accompanied by John Ohmen heiser, chairman of the house com mittee, Journeyed to Perth Amboy last Friday evening and purchased some new furniture to the extent of about $100. The furniture purchased consists of reading tables, parlor chairs and rugs, also a beautiful book rack and many other suitable pieces to beautify the club room, which is located in the Masonic Hall building in Green street. The monument committee held a meeting yesterday afternoon, trans acting many business matters of great importance. Although the Kingwood Athletic Club has decided to take this matter up, many prom inent citizens .of town will be asked to join the committee and help erect this soldiers' monument. The mon ument will be erected, it is thought, In the square at Main street and Railway avenue. A committee of twenty-three club members, together with nineteen young ladies, have been appointed for defraying the cost of erection and unveiling, by funds to be raised by the public citi zens. Several years ago this monu ment affair was taken up, but proved a failure. Now that this well known organization has decided to push it and with the aid of the town's peo ple, and members of the club, it will not prove a failure. Further details of a soldiers' monument will be made known later. Thursday evening at, 7 o'clock the rlub will leave Green street on its first trolley ride to Olympic Park, Newark. It is thought that about live cars will be had. From all ac counts, a large and jolly crowd will go. All wishing to accompany the ivingwpods may secure tickets from (he members at fifty cents.
