Srore Ury Bert Schwartz and lureetors Otto Schenk. B. IV. Peterson and Harry Mc Lure were guests of the Wheeling Lions yesterday at their noonday luncheon ?' the MoLure House. AM made short talks. .which were etit.hmsl.isiIra'.ty re ceived. The "Long roar" Siv,,n f?r the State Fair and the following resolu tion unanimously adopted: "Resolved that this club heartily en ' dorses the plan and purposes of the West Virginia State Fair Association as outltned by its board of directors to a meetJng of the club today, and that we pledge ou? oooperatlon in every way possible In advancing the interests of the State Fair Association." Both Air. Lutz and Mr. Schenk em phasized the fact that the State Fair pays no profits or dividends to any in dividual: that the association Is classed as an educational Institution, not con ducted for profit, and that there Is no benefit to any stockholder except that of satisfaction over having done a good work for the community and state. Se<*retarv Schwartz told what the fair would hi this fall Mr B W. Peterson brought out the point that by means or her fair. West Virginia can do much to counteract injurious publicity which the state has received. Mr. Harry McLure described In a seml-humurous way the eld days of the fair, when Anton Rey mann and George Hook- would get to gether Informally two or three weeks before the date set and Mr Iteymann rwould say. "Well. George, whitewash i the fence and let s have a fair the gates would bo opened, big crowds would attend and afterward the direc tors would meet and divide the profits. He contrasted that time with the pres ent. when the fair, i" ? institution re quiring work all the year around, and Is run for the benefit of the entire eom iminitv Instead of as a money making proposition Mr. McLure did not crit Vtso the old way In any manner, but he "had high praise for the new Enjoyable Program Attorney >\V. L. Bradshaw was good fellowship chairman of the day. and pre sented a fine program. A splendid sar .Pv 0f ,.,i^ and uets was given by Mrs. W. 0 Steher and Mrs J. 1. Cor.ley ftcxompanled .hy Miss Aline Kratt mis was oV- :f the finest musical programs the Lions have heard. Professor Tr,,v.?,pi! was plaeed la charge of a spelling class composed of the doctors and law vers in the club, and hur.ed a number of legal and medidal terms at them to be correctly spelled. D? Drinkard got one word right, but the revt we,e a total loss Professor Ander son announced th* preparations for a v.,j. to the Fov Scout camp, and Allan Adams, representing the Scouts, urge ? stood attendance . The -id'Iress of President George Luts ??? the FatV association was as fellows: The invitation to roar with the Lions tod,iv following our delightful li s, with the Kiwanls and Rotary Clubs, iv viirely a pleasure to the officers and dire i'rs of the West Virginia State Fair In whose behalf I desire to thank you If Oaniei had found It such a pie v .nt experience to heard the In ilieir den as we have, he would have wanted to churn with the king of beasts a!! the rest of his days.

And while primarily conceived to de velop the agricultural resources of the country, the fairs have extended their scope un'it now the modern up-to-date exhibition takes In commercial. itidus trial. and welfare work as well, quicken ing every nervo and fiber of our social 'body. Fof the Bubllo It Is of *u n an Important movement as this tha* the West Virginia State Pair is a part. It Is conducted solely in the interest of the public* weal, no Individual n ?: group benefiting one iota from It except as the whole community benefits. Since it was taken over by the new management in 1D15. Its stock holders have written into their by-laws that no dividends shall be paid stock holiter*. but all profits made shall be devdtcd t? improving the fair. All directors serve without compensation, and the secretary and assistant secre tary receive only nominal salaries.

To be of the great- ' | est possible value to the people of t - Wheeling, the state and the tri-state | region. we must add to our facilities for taking ear.- of the show. Our great est needs are an exposition building and coliseum We have had plans drawn for these buildings, but tire held UP . In executing these plans by the prob lem of financing the erection of the buildings. The Kiwanis club, at a most enthusiastic meeting last week. ' pledged their support In working out , this problem.
