NUMBER 45 COMMERCIAL CLUB SPECIAL MEETING I Club Discusses Details of Several I Important Events Langdon Will Enjoy This Summer AUDITORIUM DISCUSSED Commercial Club Plans Entertainment for Teacher's Institute Week—Appoints a Committee to Boost the Chautauqua and Will Help Entertain the Encampment of Farm Boys A Busy Summer is Abead Langdon's commercial club trans acted considerable business at a special meeting held Monday evening for the purpose of taking care of a number of events which will prove attractions for visitors to the city during the next few weeks. The Chautauqua assembly, a live day event to be held in Langdon from July 16th to 20th, will have the pre liminary details looked after by a committee of boosters composed of Messrs. Grimsnn, Geo. W. Price, Sheehan, -Johnston, Mesdames Milne, Moran and Helen Sanford. The city band, which the club in a large measure is responsible for the resurrection of, was reported by M. O. Strom, its business manager, as coming right along that plenty of music would be on tap for Langdon's summer attractions and a series of open air concerts during the summer evenings at intervals. The auditorium project was able to report progress although apparently at a stand still while awaiting the services of an architect and further consideration of details from the club. Mr. Pruden's price for the property is stated as being $6,000, and it is estimated that the roof could be low ered from the third to the second story level for about $750. There are other details on which estimates have not been received. The names of Fred Ober and John J. Boyd were added to the original auditorium com mittee, composed of Messrs Mahon, Winter and Grimson. The club also took up and disposed of the matter of the prizes in the farm contests, a feature of the Cava lier county fair in which the business men of Langdon through its commer cial club donate the prizes. Instead of the cash prizes of last year, silver trophy cups are to be offered in this year's contest. One silver cup, of a value of $25 will be offered in each of the commissioner districts and one large sweepstake cup, valued a1 $50 The condition attaches that before the cups becomes the property of the holders they must have been won in. three contests. The cups are being selected and will be on exhibition herb in Langdon some little time before the holding of the county fair in July. The teachers county institute, an event which will bring a crowd of visitors to Langdon during the week of June 21, was next taken up for consideration. The committee named by the club to look after the furnish ing of suitable public entertainment for the visiting teachers being com posed of Messrs W. F. Winter, C. A. Spellman and Dr. Tom Smith. The encampment of farm boys ef Cavalier county who will camp on the fair grounds to the number of at least fifty during the week of July 5th, came next in the order of business, when J. W. Haw in behalf of the movement, back of the encampment, outlined to the club what was being done to lay out the week's program for the instruction and entertainment of the boys. The committee who will co-operate with the projectors of the boys camp are Messrs Baldwin, Thor son, Mahon, Strom and Bolton, which would indicate that the boys are not likely to fare badly during their week' Langdon stay, especially con sidering that the club gave them a free hand in the matter. There was the suggestion made that Langdon should emulate the example of some of the neighboring towns and have a gopher day, but at the sugges tion of Mr. Haw, who stated that the government authorities had taken cognizance of the matter and a man would be here in a few days to intro duce a new and improved method for disposing of the pest. The matter was for the time being laid on the table. The old depot building and itB dis posal was also another topic for dis cussion just before, the meeting adjourned, the suggestion being made to see for what amount it could be secured from the Great Northern for the purpose of being converted into a skating rink. Agent Bolton undertook to take up the matter with the rail road company and will make a report at the club's next meeting.
