ROTARY VOTES FOR THE CLUB Sentiment in favor' of sticking with the Rock Island club was strong enough among Rotarians to day to cause them to vote down a proposal to hold their weekly ses sions temporarily at the Y. W. C, A. Two weeks ago the meeting was held at the Y. W. C. A. to permit the showing of moving pictures. So well vere the members pleased with the service and the lunch that they voted informally to meet there again. Today, after a lively de bate in which it was pointed out that the Rock Island club needs and deserves the support of the Rotarians, it was decided to re turn to the regular place if meet ing. Dean W. E. Simonds of Knox college, president ot the Galesburg Rotary club, spoke on the oppor tunity that Rotary affords to learn how to serve. The willingness to be useful he said, is inherent in most men, but the opportunities to do so are not always obvious. Ro tary points the way. Professor C. C. McCown of the Pacific School of Religion at Berkeley, Cal., called attention to the great opportunities that the near east holds for this country. With Manila as a center a halt cir cle described to the s .uth, east and north, covering South Sea islands, India, China and Japan, takes in half the population of the world. These people are just developing in government, industry and other wise, and now is the time to im press them with American ideals and the American way of doing things. Here is the greatest field for commercial expansion and one in which connections may now be made that will go far to insure fu ture security of this country. NOON CLOSING ON WEDNESDAYS REST OF SUMMER Rock Island grocery stores will close at noon on Wednesdays dur ing the months of June, July and August, it was decided at a meeting of the Rock Island Grocers' asso ciation at the Y. W. C. A following a dinner served there last evening Meat market proprietors will probably make the same move and close their doors for the Wednes day halt holiday, members of the association said.

Back home! That was the realization that filled the heart of little Edward Bennett with joy as well as toe hearts of his parents on his arrival in the city Jast night from Newton, Kas., where he was found after having been missinj for three days. But Edward, who is the son of Detective Dennis Bennett, hasn't much to say of his trip. But what his parents have managed to get him to tell them has added a touch of mystery to his harrowing adven ture as a wanderer. According to the story he told his mother, he decided to take a fin on .his way home from school last Wednesday. He was last aeu tucu before his sudden disappearance. Edward says he went to Davenport and while in the railroad yards of that place a man gave him a dollar for "traveling expenses." At least Edward used the money for that Who the man was who gave him the dollar, or his reason for doing so, nobody seems to know for swe not even Edward. Anyway, Edward says he boarded a freight train and rode on it for a long, long time until he finally got hungry. Then when they stop ped at some town he basn t the faintest idea what or where it was he got off and. bought something to eat, getting back on the train and continuing his Journey. That, ac cording to Edward, was the only time he left the train until he got to Newton, Kan., when he again feit the pangs of hunger and got off to get something to eat He says, however, that while he was away the train pulled out and left him there. It was then his thoughts turned homeward and he sought the aid of the Newton police. They im mediately got into communication with his parents and bis father started for the western city after him. When his father arrived in New ton and Edward saw him. he was a pretty happy boy, but when he was actually back home again he was even happier and felt that he had done enough traveling to last him the rest of his life.
