VOL. LI. LEXINGTON, LAFAYETTE COUNTY, MISSOURI, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER, 18, 1921 NUMBER 46. FIRST MONTHLY LUNCHEON Members of C. of C. Enjoy An Hour Over The Coffee Cups. The; first of the noonday lun cheons for the members of the Chamber of Commerce was held Tuesday at Hinesley's. About sixty-five were present, includ ing-a number of the lady mem bers and a few men from out in the county. It was a volun teer affair, although a commit tee waited on the members to Bell tickets, this had to be dona so that provision could be made by the caterer. A few who were approached by the committee were inclined to peevishness and thought the C. of C. was trying to "put something over." The C. of C. was trying "to put some thing over" and succeeded ad mirably. A unanimous vote was polled to continue the luncheons on. the third Tuesday of each month during the winter, alter nating between Hinesley's and The Victory. B. M. Little, who presided, kept things moving, and first called upon Dr. C. T. Ryland to make an announcement. Dr. Ry land spoke briefly about the smallpox situation in Kansas City. He said it. was but a ques tion of a short time when the dreaded di?"svould make its appearance in Lexington, and urged the people of Lexington to forestall the epidemic by be ing vaccinated. He further stat ed that it was the old-fashioned !vpe imi""tM tVV Ath rtite was very high. ihe next announcement was made by J. G. Crenshaw, who spoke in behalf of the Red Cross drive, which will be made next Friday. He enumerated a few of the many duties performed by the local Red Cross Chapter and urged its support by every citizen of Lexington and the county. "The Red Cross," he said, "has made itself a neces sity in every community, and to insure , its future everyone should become a member and contribute as liberally as their circumstances will permit." Mr. Little then announced that W. B. Burris of Kansas City, who had promised to be present and make a talk could not come. He then introduced Dr. R. E. Dickinson, of Colorado Springs, Colo., who is a guest of Dr. Z. M. Williams at Central College. No one missed Mr. Bur ris. as Dr. Dickinson's short address was full of good things and delivered in a most pleasing manner. Death of D. S. Phelps. 1 D. S.
