Gilbert Bancroft, assisted by D.
Lillian I-ewis gave the first
"evening" in the Citizens Enter
tainment Course held during the
winter. Dr. Bancroft gave a
lecture entitled "How, When and

the underlying thought was that
of good advice for both parent
and young people. Miss Lewis
gave a reading and also rendered
a vocal solo which pleased her
audience very much. This is Dr.
Bancroft's second appearance in
our village and we shall certainly
be delighted to see him come
LITERARY SOCIETY NOTES
'On Friday evening October 30,
the gymnasium was the scene of
much "merry making." The
occasion was celebrating in a
joyful way the mystic night of
Hallowe'en. The three literary
societies were present as a body,
the Vespertines and Normals
being the guests of the Delphians.
The decorations were simple
but attractive and very suggest
ive. Jack o'lanterns were much
in evidence and both their smil
ing and bewitching faces pro
claimed that on one night of the
year at least they, "are mon
archsof all they survey" for
they peeped from every crook
and cranny of the spaciousjoom.
At either end of the room were
canopies or evergreens which
hung in graceful festoons. The
larger one of the two which was
at the west end of the room
formed a bower from under
which refreshments were served
An excellent program was
rendered at 8:30. It was:
Opening Address Mary Whitney
Pres. Delphian Society
Response Eflie May Galbrenth,
, Pres. Vespertine Society
Response D. C. Henry, Pres.
Vocal Duet with guitar accom-
paniment Mrs. Strong and
Quartet Ruth Fugate, Mary Mur
phy, D. C. Henry, Geo.
Address Mr. Briggs
All the numbers on the pro
gram were heartily applauded
those who rendered the musical
numbers being forced to respond
to double encores.
After the program, the time
was passed pleasantly away in
games which were partaken in
and enjoyed by all. The most
attractive bit of amusement how
ever was that furnished by the
gypsy fortune teller. This booth
was presided over by Miss Lillian
Anderson who greatly impressed
her listners by telling of the good
things in store for them, as re
vealed to her by the goblius,
Miss Anderson wore costume for
the occasion and made a charm
ing little "gypsy."
Among the evergreen decora
tions were hidden innumerable
animals cooKies. At an ap
pointed time the signals for be
ginning and closing the hunt
were given. During the three
minute hunting period all looked
eagerly for the much coveted
animals. As a result of the efforts
expended, prizes were given for
the most successful and the most
unsuccessful hunter; the prizes

I Reported By the Can
The first number of the Third
Annual Citizens' Entertainment
Course was given Thursday night,
October 29, in the Normal As-.
sembly Hall. An audience of
about 200 was in attendance and
general satisfaction with the
entertainment was expressed.
The Committee reports a sale
of 72 adult season ickets and 79
student and children tickets.
Total receipts were $180.30, of
which $12.80 represent sale of
single admissions. Payment for
16 season tickets has not been
reported to the treasurer, some
of which is probably in the hands
of the Committee and some still
unpaid. It will confer a favor on
the committee if all who have not
paid for their season ticket will
kindly pay either the treasurer
Ira C. Powell, at the Bank, or
the Acorn Bookstore.
The next number of the Course .
will be an extra attraction, se
cured at a special price so that
the committee feels authorized
to say that the original course of
five numbers will be increased to
six. This extra number will be
given next Tuesday evening,"
November 10, at 8:15 p. m. by
Otto F. L Herse, Tenor, assisted
by Frank A. White, Pianist A
varied program of classical and
popular selections will be offered
by these talented musicians, who
come highly recommended.
This will offer another oppor
tunity to all who failed to secure
season tickets before the first
number, since there will still be
five entertainments in the regu
lar course, with whatever extras
the receipts justify. All who de
sire season tickets may secure
them at the Acorn Bookstore at
the following prices: Adults
$1.50, children and students $1.
The committee hopes to secure
another regular number early in
