The monthly meeting of the
Community Club last Friday
evening was one of the best it
ever had. The 'obby of the Es­
tacada Hotel was crowded, every
available seat occupied with
many standing. After the meet­
ing was called to order, there
was a discussion of road matters
and the question of annexation,
W. F. Cary making a compre­
hensive report on the matter.
There seemed to be unanimous
approval and a petition was cir­
culated so those who had not
already signed up, might do so.
H. C. Stephens spoke on the
proposed ordinance for midnight
closing of dances and R. S. Lud­
low addressed the meeting on
behalf of legislation pending in
congress which the American
Legion is supporting for the
benefit of the soldiers. On mo­
tion of S. Pesznecker, the club
was put on record as endorsing
the passage of this legislation.
After the conclusion of the busi­
ness of the evening, a musical
program was rendered by the
Meadow Quartette of Dodge,
which was enthusiastically re­
The members of the
quartette were Messrs. Fred and
Edgar Horner of Dodge .and
Messrs. H. H. and Ben Chind-
gren of Colton. In addition to
their numbers, Miss Vendela
Hill of Colton, played some violin
solos which proved she was an
exceptional performer and her au­
dience s howed its appreciation.
A piano solo by Miss FitzlofT of
Colton, also caused loud applause
and a most deserved encore.
Character sketches by A. H.
Chindgren were also included in
the program and elicited much
laughter. Sandwiches ¡and cof­
fee were served and visiting
was in order till midnight, whan
happy new year greetings were
interchanged and the gathering
broke up.
