The Citizen’! Lecture Course com
mittee presents a six entertainment
course instead of the five number
course heretofore offered. The sup
port given to the course last year was
so good that the committee felt justi
fied in making a contract for an addi
tional entertainment without raising
the former low price for a season
ticket. Season tickets are now on sale
by high school students at the rate of
*2 each. Students’ tickets for school
children in any school in the county
$1 each. Single admission will be as
formerly, 76 cents per entertainment
for adults and 36 cents for school
children. You save more than half
by buying a season ticket. Seats may
be reserved at any time beginning on
Monday, October 26 at the Up-to-Date
drug store. No Saturday night dates,
three fine musical numbers, two en
tertainers, and a lecturer, Redpath
The course will begin October 80
with the Riners, followed November 6
by Opie Read. Buy your season tick

No Subscription List for Athletics
The board of education made plans
on Tuesday evening to take care of
the high school athletic fund this year
without taking it from the taxes and
without asking the annual subscrip
tion from the business men. The bus
iness men have for years responded
liberally to the request for funds for
high school activities and would no
doubt respond with their usual will
ingness this year, but it Beems an un
necessary burden to lay upon those
who are contributing liberally in many
other ways and the custom which has
been followed for so many years will
The high school is planning great
things for this year’s sports. Coach
Koonsman is making good every day,
and the students are working hard to
