The recital here last Tuesday
night by Mr. and Mrs. Chas. L.
Householder of Jackson, given at
Tteynolds Theatre, was a very fine
treat. 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. This song act was
really an artistic triumph and the
audience responded heartily. People
of Union City enjoyed the visit of
Mr. and Mrs"." Householder,
