Patriotic Parade, Business Meeting of
Veterans, Boxing Match and Dance
Also on Holiday Program.
Armistice Day will be
County Post, of the American 'Legion, although a young
organization is decidedly active. 'Members of the Post
have planned a celebration that will include the after
noon and evening.
A dinner has been promised all service men in the
Commercial club rooms at twelve noon, given by the
Honor Guard girls, who will be assisted by the ladies of
the city. An attractive menu will be furnished, and if
as successful as the Honor Guard banquet last June, wjll
be worth coming many miles after.
A patriotic parade at three in the afternoon is next
on the program, in which every service man, war worker
and school child is asked to participate. The parade
forms one block north of Tonawama at two-thirty, and
will march past the reviewing stand at the Liberty Theatre
down to the south end of Main street, and return to the
reviewing stand.' Prominent citizens will then make,
Following the parade, the business meeting of Har
ney County Post will be held in the Commercial club
rooms. The program for the business meeting includes
adoption of a constitution and. by-laws, and nomination
of permanent officers. Other matters of importance to
the future of the organization; vill also be discussed.
A boxing match betweeW'Kid Carpentier" and the
"Dutch Karpenter1' will be the main attraction in the
evening, to take place in Tonawama at seven o'clock.
This match and the program for the evening are unWr, the
direct auspices of the Post. A cash forfeit has bttn put
guaranteeing the appearance of the boxers. As a, pre
liminary, a pillow fight and blindfold boxing matcfv are
to be put on. A four round boxing preliminary is also
possible. ; ,v '
.Blindfold boxing matches -were one of the chief
forms of amusement in the army, and -will be sure to
appeal to the man who "relishes a little nonsense now
and then." ,
The Pott has advised that a general admission fee
of one dollar and aiollar and one-half for rincside stats
will be charged to cover the
an inducement to tht soxtrs.
