Already the arrangements for the annual mask ball to be given by the boys of the East Las Vegas Fire de partment on January 1, are well under way and Indications are that it will be the biggest and grandest affair in the history of the Meadow City fire department. At the last meeting of the firemen in the city hall on No vember 7 committees were appointed, and the committee on arrangements, composed of Arthur Mlnnium, Dick Smith and James Lowe, immediately got busy and has already outlined the entire plan for the big dance. According to this committee, the affair will be more elaborate and larger than ever. The idea for this year is of a circus carnival and every thing will be run on those lines. The boys of the department before the regular mask ball will pull off a new little circus stunt in which all of the talent of the company will be used to the best advantage. The boys are all good acrobats and it will no doubt have any one circus in the business beat a city block on the gym nastic side and any Georgian min strels from the comical side of life. This little show is only a starter for the things to come. The committee on arrangements is in correspondence with one of the "best oostumers in Denvefr and to tempt the highest class of masking the boys will spare no expense in the way of prizes. The firemen are plan ning to spend over $200 in prizes and are going to carry out the entire affair in the same way. A similar sum is to be spent for decorating the opera house. The committee has written for bids to some Colorado firm, which will furnish the material, and will make known its plans upon the receipt of replies. A new feature of the big function will be a parade In the afternoon. Though the plans for this are not colmpleted, it will be a feature well worth witnessing. The fire boys are going to have the best music that there is in the Meadow City. A spe cial orchestra will be organized for the occasion in which there will be the best talent in Las Vegas. This annual New Year ball of the fire lad dies is always an event to be looked forward to and the public can count on a great deal this year. The com mittee on arrangements has ordered some large posters of the circus type and for further announcements watch the billboards and The Optic.
