More definite announce, incut as to the details of thee event will bo carried in the next issue of this paper. Everyone is urged to enter heartily into the spirit of this occusion and make it one of the red letter days in the young life in Lub bock. The evening services for young people superintended by Mrs. high er during the revival were instru mental in getting the young people of the various denomination to gether, and in working for the win mug of the contest they created a spirit of fnend'iness among theMi on the respective sides which indicated the great possibilities of putting the work of the young people "n a community-wide basis, and with the work 'tailed in the matter as above pro posed, we aree sure that much pood will be derived from the beginning of a great revival in interesting the young life of Lubbock in church work. We suggest that all young people uf Lubbock take close notice of what is being donee by the committees appointed on this work, and when the opportunity to assist with the pro gram comes, get into it with all the pen and vigor that is about you, and help make life in Lubbock worth while for the young people. The Avalanche is glad to give space to the articles relating the activities of the various committees, and will give wide publicity to every entertainment, which we believe is to play a great part in the social and religious life of Lubbock.

The fact that the large courtroom has been crowded to full capacity throughout the trial, and many women are among those attending, some question has been asked about the reason for the ladies taking so much interest, which is accounted for in thee fact that the brakeman who was killed was a young man, ; ar.d the defendants are both young i n en, and interest in youth more t', ,n anything else is what is taking the ladies to the courtroom.

The old story that a Methodist minister should be called on in such instance seemed not to have been thought practical at the actual oc curence of coin swallowing, as the little fellow above mentioned was hardly off th operating table until Reba, th five-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W.

ROTARY AND KIWANIS" CLUBS ARE CO-OPERATING TO BETTER CONDITIONS IN LEAST TIME POSSIBLE CITIZENS REALIZE INVESTMENT FEATURE Will Decrease Insurance Cost to Such Extent That By Purchasbf Equipment On Time the City Will Save Sufficient Cost to Tax Payers to Meet Payment, When Lubbock business men go after a thing is about all that is needed to get It. The fa t then hat Lubbock is af ter better f're protection faciliies for the city is indeed evidence that there will be no chance for the fire demon to interrupt the progress of this tit y in soon as enough time, for the achievement of that work hn passed. The r.otarians and Kiwanians may not be sin h "spizz" cats w hen it . omes to twirling the old pill or get t.ng beat at Bond elections, but when 't com. s to going out after something that Lubbock must have th.y are all furred out and eitiip iie.l for the little scrap, and the fact that it is the unanimous opin ion of he Club members that .some thing must be done to get better f-re fighting equipment for this city, proof conclusive that tiny will fin i .h the little job in due time.

The F.astland Masonic Lodge will have charge of the services. J. R.

That is a pitiful condition, ind one that Lubbo. k citizens will i t tolerate, and the Avalanche has too much respect for our people to stress the need of .our business" men getting to work on the problem, for already they are at work doing all they possibly can for the execution of the work at hand, but this ar-ti'-le is printed to remind some of the less thoughtful that Lubbock merchants and businessmen are working to the better interest of the city in every way possible, and deserve the closest co-operation lr-.m every resident citizen. Yes, Lubbock businessmen have rolled up their sleeves for another long, hard fight and will come oat winners before many days, and if you have not had a part in the lit tle scrap you will he so badly di appojotcd in yourself that it will be hard for you to call Lubbock home. Better get lined up with the fel lows who are going after the in sinuation of adequate fire fighting fa. ilities for this city.
