I frankly admit that certain Intoxicated persons entered tho halt that night, nftor hnvlng pro cured tholr liquor from outsldo sourc es, but I will also stnto that these offensive persons woro removed from the hall and Mint nt no tlmo hnvo wo countenanced tho presenco ot such persons at any ot our dances.

Tho church will bo orected upon tho corner of Ninth ami Pine streets, on tho snmo slto on which tho old church building stood until it was sold and converted Into a business block a short tlmo ago. In planning tho construction ot tho church, the pastor, tho Rev C. F. Trimble, nnd his flock, are obvious ly Intent upon building wisely and woll. It will be built ot brick and stone, and the three floors wilt bo re ploto with assembly rooms, clasn rooms, parlors, and all Interior apart ments necessary In tho conduct ot tho work of a church which Is leav ing no stone unturned to make Ufa from a moral viewpoint, bigger, broader, and better. In tho basement will be a banquet hall, serving room, kitchen, and tho Janitor's apartments. In addition there will be the men's class room, with a seating capacity ot 250, I nn assembly room and eight cl rooms for the primary classes. These rooms will be on the north side ot the banquet room. The main auditorium, or service room proper, wilt be on the main floor, and will seat 256 people. On one side ot tho main auditorium will bo tho ladles' parlor for which pro visions havo been made to seat 220. On the opposite side ot tho auditor ium will bo tho Sunday school audi torium, and 132 can be seated in It. When necessary, these three room, can.be made Into one mlg auditorium, through the medium of folding doors, thus providing seating room for COS people. North of thejnaln auditorium will bo the baptistery, choir room, and dressing rooms, and adjoining these rooms will be eight more data rooms and an assembly room. Incidentally, It Is planned to add a gallery which, will overlook the main auditorium, but It will not be built in until a tew month after the completion ot the. building. On tho top floor, a large portion ot which will be unavailable for class rooms or other purposes because ot tho open space abovo the main audi torium, will be the pastor's study, vestibule, and eight moro class rooms. Every utility necessary to make tho building modern and thorough ly serviceable will be Installed. Briefly, the building will be one ot which every member of the congre gation, and also any other person who takes pride In civic botterment, can feel justly proud. Mr. Trimble concedes that ho nnd his congregation have undertaken an accomplishment that will test their "get-there" spirit to the utmost, but tho outlook for a very successful termination to this endeavor Is very bright. Kxcavation for the basement has already begun, and work on the superstructure will begin as soon as possible next spring. m Lakeview C. of C.
