Chebeague. the first definTie Action toward set ting the dat? and discussing plans for the now famous Annum Field Day Carnival was taken by a representa tive party of gentlemen from each of the leading houses. * The notice for the gathering had been given at the island hostelries the day before and a gathering of active workers was brought out. These will be added to by others chosen from the hotels and cottages until a general commit tee of about 25 to 30 is formed, from which the executive committee will be chosen. The election of officers resulted in the choice of Mr. A. P. Bicknell. chairman, and Mr. Thomas J. Bissell, secretary. The treasur ership was left open until the next meeting of the committee, which takes place immediately after the mass meeting at Hill Crest tonight, at which time a sub-committee will report plans for each day and the .matter of finances will be discussed. / As a general outline, it has been suggested that the opening day, which was set for Saturday for vari ous reasons, be given to a champion ship baseball match between the crack Chebeague team and a picked team from the summer visitors, and also a tennis tournament. Sunday could be quietly observed by an or chestra sacred concert or possibly a good speaker could be procured. Monday and Tuesday will then be given over to the field sports. The Carnival of last year was one of un qualified success and was a great credit to the island and the commit tee will have to work hard and must have the active co-operation and sup -port of wary person on the IsftUid during the next ten days to arrange a program that will compare with it. for where three weeks were taken last year In preparation, there are only ten days left for active work for this summer's observation. The mass meeting tonight Is held in the interest of everyone on the island and residents, cottagers and hotel people are alike urged to be present, hear the plans discussed, and be prepared to put their shoulder to the wheel individually.

And there is lawn tennis here, where the girls In making: strokes, throw out the left hind foot just as in Harpswell and the young men. what few there are. turn up the bot tom* of their trouser legs. Just the same as at Harpswell. And the Rtruggles with the laundry question and difficulties in making change when paying bills all remind me of my dear Maine home. No fogs here.
