The cakea, pies, the glasses of jelly. the yellow legs of chicken thst were on the ground in the early part of the day haven't yet been counted. There waa one thing present that it ia pretty hard to measure. That waa the spirit of fellowship and reighborly good will that prevailed in everythinir. The success of this effort by people scattered over large territory coming together and putting on a community project waa a demonstration of what can b done by cooperative effort such ss is not often seen. The parade waa a surprise to every body. One prominent citizen wanted to have it right over so people could see it stain. Many of ths floats were very artistic and all were 'beau tiful. Mayor Gay and T. J. Osborne wel comed th popl in th most happy manner. Dinner waa spread all to gether on th campus, town and country people enjoying each other fully.
