In this manner Mt. Vernon's observance of Armistlco Day was broug'ht to a fitting and' proper; clotfe. Tho dinner was served at G:30 o'clock. Throughout the day a com mittee 0f tho auxiliary, of which Mrs.' Sarah TO. Hendlngton, auxiliary com maiider, was chairman, assisted by tho seven chairmen of standing com mittees of tho nuxiliary, had worked to prepare and make ready such a meal as they knew would be ma3t pleasing to a bunch of hungry sol diers, airs. A. P. Taylor was chair man of the K. P. They were assisted in serving by a group of 25 young wo mon, witli Mrs. lEarLO'Bryan as chair man. "iVlieu the company -'had taken their places at tho tables, grace was pro nounced by the nev. L. W. Mulhnno, pastor of St.. Vincent de Paul's Cath olic church. When all present had been sufficiently refreshed, Mrs. Headington announced the speaking program. Tho Hev. L. W. Mulhnne was the first snooker. He gave such a talk, filled and overflowing with humor, such as only he can give, and the piquant flavor of which it is quite im possible .to reproduce .in .type. During the late war, Rev. Mhlhano had been privileged to recelvo letters from a great number ofiKnox county soldiers who had gone overseas or were in the training camps. In tho course ot his talk, he recited some of tho humorous and comical things they had given him. Frequently he was interrupted by tho laughter of his audltorr. VIi'o Confmander Edmund Budd of Dr.n C. Stone Jr. post, American Le gion, spoke briefly and happily In acknowledgement .for himself and comrades of the pleasant hospitality of the ladles of tho auxiliary. He de clared his complete conviction that tho Mt. Vernon auxiliary is "the best in Ohio." - Ho called for a cheer to bo glvon the ladles. It was given heartily, all standing. Past Command er I.awronco Sperry declared 'Vice Crnnmnndor Budd had not taken In "enough, territory." Ho declared the Mt. Vernon auxiliary to bo "tho best In t.ho United States." Paul Smlthhtslor of Cloveland had come" back to Mt.

Thoes wlio now nro ni'jmliers of tho legion ho ndvlrrd to go out after tlow members, counucllns thorn not to ceaso their efforts until they hnve secured every man eligible. Commander Wayne Wiggins of the American Legion post at Frederick town, fpok briefly, acknowledging the generous and kindly hospitality that had Included nil Knox county sol diers n well ns tho30 from Mt. Ver non. If, C. Dnvln, president of tho Knox county me-moriaj building commission, spoke nt some length touching iipon tho 'Jnlnrost -tJio ex-servleo men have In tho stmoturo soon to bo erected. Of tho purchaso of tho sito, ho ns Fumed they nlready nro aware. He expressed tho hope they aro pleased and satisfied with it. In this connec tion, ho mentioned somo of tho many difficulties tho commlssoln had en countered before they wcro able to secure a location. Mr. Dovin mentioned also some of tho "Impossible" Ideao that have been suggested for Incorporation In tho building plans. Emphasis was laid upon the limitations placed upon the commission by tho stato building code. Many things suggested aro out of tho question because tho building code will not. permit them. Tho liopo was oxpressed confidently, that the building will bo completed at an early date. Mr. Dovin ccncludod his talk with the observation that Armistice Day properly should be a day of real re joicVng. It, differs from Memorial Day bocause It celebrates tho end of tho war. Mrs. F. W. Lonoy, in behalf of the members of the auxiliary, expressed their pleasure and satisfaction in hav ing this opportunty to entertain the veterans. The members of tho aux iliary at all times, she said, are glad to be of what service they can to tho veterans. A solo, "The Wide World Over," . was sung bytfeoffrey Errett. This being enthusiastically received, he sang an encore number also. Mrs. Earl O'Bryan gave two humorous readings that were eminently pleas ing. Mrs. 'Elsie Stillwagon sang "Don't Bring Me Posies," and was compelled to respond to an encore nlso. , Tho last address was given by Supt. A, V. Elliott. His first words were spoken in appreciation -and tribute to the Amerlcnn soldier whom ho liken ed to that noblo Roman, Clnclnnatus, who performed well the duty to tho state to which he was called, and when It was finished returned gladly to his former occupation. As a schoolman, he is interested, he said, in tho educational work of tho American Legion. Ho can conceive nothing more .patriotic than tho stand tho Legion has taken to wipe put 11 literpcy. He deems America fortu nate to havo .such an organization as tho American Legion .standing back of her educational forces. One of the best things tho Legion can do, ho went on to flay, will be to perpetuato the enthusiasm, ot this Armistice Day. Ho was proud to havo had a small part in the celebration, for tho Legion is hack of tho schools of America. A sentiment that found expression and which elicited strong "approval was that "Everyone e'hould Ipvo Amer ica. If he doesn't ho should get out and llvo somewhere else." This concluded the evening's pro gram, but for some time longer tho ox-service men remained, enjoying in smaller groups further social pleas ures and satisfaction.
