In connection with the offer of the war department to send 11 airplanes, including two captured German Fok kers, to Boise to give demonstraUons of battle and plain flying during the celebration to be staged in honor of re turned soldiers, sailors and marines by the Boise Commercial club, provided the celebration be staged during April while the fifth liberty loan drive Is on, the Commercial Club is of the opinion that it would be more fitting to hold the welcome and homecoming celebra tion July 3, 4 and 5_, as planned, Instead of during the month suggested by the department. The Commercial club, in planning the big affair, had set the three days men tioned as the probable and best dates to stage it, as everybody Indulges in a celebration the Fourth of July, and it was thought best to have It at that time In conneclon with the usual pa rade and big time. However, when the proposition of the war department came up, the matter was talked over of having the boys welcomed In April as suggested. It Is believed by the club, in making the dates July 3, 4 and 6, that the Im portance of a celebration In honor of returned service men was such that no other Issues should be confused with this celebration, and that It should be strictly in their honor and not given in connection with any other enterprise.
