Rather an unpleasant situation to bave

tbat yon can't get tid of and worse
than tbat nobody wants.
We now offer a solution of the
problem, and ask tbe kids of all this
territory for a radius of 15 miles
around Weston to help do the job.

name this obild will be given a free
ticket tbat will admit tbat obild to
any moving pioture show that is giv
en by Mr. Rswla Miller of Atbena,
either in Weston or Athena.
Later on, these names will be con
sidered by a citizen's committee of
eight or ten people aod all tbe names
obosen by this committee, eaob being
limited to one oholoe and each to aot
individually, will entitle those wbo
