Them With Work and Money in
cidentally sadly Deplorable State.
A discouraging story to relate Is
the Incident which occurred last eve
ning when public action In thl. city
made It Impossible for th. La Grand,
band to glv. Its second benefit home
theatrical. On the night of the first
performance, th. att.ndanc wa. such
that th. expense, of producing th.
play and hall expense, could not be
cleared. Last evening, an hour nr an

The city itself will suffer the most
for this bit of carelessness oil , the
part of theatergoers. The band
heretofore has appeared on the streets
with Its members dressed in civilian
clothes for the simple reason that the
organization was not financially
strong enough to purchase uniforms.
Tre receipts from the two produc
tions planned would have netted suf
ficient, funds to do this had La Grande
displayed its customary loyalty to
home enterprises. As It Is, . the La
.Qrando band has been elven a severe
Setback in spirit. ,;, 1
. The- organisation has - requested
thanks be extended to those who did
help to meet some of the expenses
and to those who so ably aided In
arranging and carrying out the play.
Th. show Itself Is credited by all who
saw it as being excellent and well
worth the money asked. Th. one di
rect result of the Incident Is that the
band will continue in Its old rut
barely able to buy new music, or to
pay th. Instructor, let alone procure
uniforms as every other organization
of a similar nature Is equipped with.
