Mr. and Mrs. Householder were here under the auspices of the American Legion. They are both Tery talented, and they were both in service in the European war. Capt. Householder was in military service in France and he is very familiar with the various experiences of the late war. However, he touched light ly on the theme of war and mixed his address with story telling. Mrs. Householder gave a number of readings and song recitals. She is gifted in both. Every one of them was enjoyed thoroly. It was, how ever, the very last whicn was most charming. This was a lullaby and here talent was inspired with the feminine instinct.
