Courier office yesterday, there was
an error In the notice gtven by

read as follows:

vise you that the county court will
not permit the courthouse vto be
used for dancing at the reception to
be given by the American Red Cross
to the returned soldiers and sailors.
Tours truly, B. L. COBCRN,
The above correction is cheerfully
made in justice to Judge Gillette.

The last entertainment given by
the Red Cross In the courthouse was
last September, at which there was
dancing and vaudeville stunts and
there was much damage done to the
building and furniture. In fact run
slderable damage was done and it
cost quite a bit to repair this d.ir.i
age. At the meeting of the court in
October an order was issued barring
danoing and vaudeville in the build
ing. That order was issued by the
old county court, the present county
court having nothing to do with it.
There is no objection to receptions,
public speaking, banquets In the
basement or like publlo gatherings
being iield in the courthouse.
Owing to a misconstruction being
put on the order ot the county court
last October there has been consid
erable comment and at the minstrel
show of the Elks on the evening of
April 16th one ot the end men made
a caustic, sarcastic and an unwar
ranted joke (?) for which he was
not responsible, but which was in
spiredby someone else to vent their
vendlctiveness by misrepresentation
through one who was a stranger and
not acquainted with the question at
The county court is not alone in
this matter, but the question has
been taken up with many prominent
citizens and taxpayers and they were
of the same opinion as the county
court that dancing should be elim
inated from the courthouse enter
tainments. C. a GILLETTE.
