A meeting of the executive Com
mittee was held Thursday evening at
which time Chairman Griffith presid
ed and considerable discussion of the
work was taken up. At this meeting
It was decided to Invite the public to

purl In the entertainment. The man
.1 cement of the Liberty Theatre has
given the house for this occasion and
also wired at the Instigation of (hap
ler members for some special Red
Croat motion picture reels to' use in
iiinnectlon with the entertainment
planned for that evening.
There ia a possibility of securing
ana of the several Red Cross lecturers
for that date but if none are available
me members of the lecturers who
will be here for the teachers' Insti
tute will be pressed Into service and
deliver an address.
Mrs. Eugenia Rembold has been
appointed to take charge of the musl
cal part of the program which prom
ises to be one of the enjoyable fea
tures of the evening. A community
Mug Is a real attraction and an In
spiration during these war times. The
gOVernfJMat authorities suggest the
llnaiag of patriotic song and lively
lunea at public gatherings. The pic
lure dhows are asked to have the
m irons sing and thus we keep up
our nplrlts and lend courage In try
While our armies are so successful
wo must keep up our work at home
and send every available help to the
boys who are making such sacrifices
for their country. The Red Cross is
the biggest factor in this work of
any society. We should give it our
uid in every way possible. The ladles
f thin county have been loyal and
hard working during the paat year
ami have accomplished everything
tni-y undertook to do for the
Croat, Let every Individual give
theae loyal women their hearty co
operation and good cheer.
The big meeting scheduled for '

Liberty is free to ail. Come and hear i
the reports of the officers for the i
losing year and see what really has '
in-, n accomplished. See how your)
dollars have been spent and after you
have been apprised of the great good
done by this society you'll want to J
give them another handout at any !
future time they ask for contribu

date and make selection of of fleers Hpv ,, s Hughe-, the new rainl

Tweiity thousand acres of unpro

been fonvertcd Into productive land.
This will release an qual acreage

also relieve transportation conges

Hundred of thousands of parents
have become interested in the gardn
movement and are working with
their children in home gardens. In
Salt Lake City alone 5200 mothers
representing sixty-two parental as
sociations are actively supporting
food production i he schools.
Thousands of civic, commercial and
patriotic organizations have become
interested in the movement and are
giving it hearty support.
One and one half million children
have been given something to do this
summer: something that will help
carry the burden of the.r country in
this struggle for freedom, something
hat will help them to build character
ad Kumething that will appeal to
gad develop their latrlctisni.
Home and acant lot gardening in
cities, towns and villages have been
dignified and made popular to a de
gree that practically insures them a
prominent place in th school system
of our country. It would be difficult
toestlmate the educational and mat
