rlclit, all Tight; If it is not done
right, It Is all wrong. This firm will
not glvo 'up any more money unless
there Is better assurance that It will
be 'well fcpent, than heretofore. We
must have something in sight.
C. E. Roosevelt I emphatically
second the motion that the observ-
Ttnce'of the Fourth of July be turned
over to the Labor Council. The
unions can and may be trusted to
give us an economical and honest
expenditure of any funds that may
be entrusted to them. Judging from
Labor Day, they can give us a. cel
ebration with novel features' one
that will be all-'round successful.
Give the unions every chance. I
think they can be depended upon.
Loe Teutsch Money to spend Is
not the only consideration. To make
a celebration a success the Interest
of every man. woman and child iji
the town should be enlisted their,
advice asked for and listened to.
Let us have assurance of a genuine
ly good celebration, or none at all.
Above all. let us go at It ln a way
that will make a community affair
R. E. Tarbet The people will
spend about so much money every
Fourth of July anyway, and If they
don't spend it In Pendleton they will
go elsewhere for diversion on the
day. The money the people of this
town will spend on railroad fares
going somewhere else If there 13 no
celebration here, If It could be got
ten together would be sufficient to
build a good celebration at home on.
Let us get up a good program and
then by all means carry it out. If
necessary, require forfeits for the
proper carrying out of contract attractions.
