began to bring out boxes of delicious
foods typical of a picnic dinner.
The dinner was spread on a table
beneath the shade of the beautiful
turn maple trees on the back lawn
and all dined sumpuously.
In the center of the table was a

With Their Hut
The Olrl Scout Tryop l and 2 have
been very busy at their hut on Gary
street, it was learned today from one
of their leaders. They have completed
a very nice tennis court just to the
rear of their hut with the aid of the
city employees and members of the
local Kiwanis club. They hold their
meetings at this hut, and, after their
regular work is finished, they play
tennis, if they so desire. This court
will probably be used a great deal
during the summer months while the
Scouts are vacating from school.
Miss Carrie Burton is leader in this
project of the Scouts.
