What ore the people of Klamath
Falls going to do about supporting
tho band which was formed early
this season under tho direction of
Fred Scelak? That la the question
which baa been asked about the
city within the past week and the
genoral opinion prevails that alnc
a first class organization haa been
whipped into anyer-and this
greatest service to the community.
It should not be permitted to die
from lack of public appreciation and
Is Klamath Falls such a" moaa
grown city with ancient Ideas that
a ban'd should exkt on the wind
they blow Into their instruments?
In this day when Klamath Falls
Is emerging from a tight financial
situation and Is about ready to be-
ln an area of prosperity and ex
pansion? Such expressions are beard
when a discussion arlsea regarding
tbo present band.
Fred Soelak, tho leader, claims
that when be first camo to Kla
math Falls from Idaho, ho held a
conversation with tbo officers of
tho chamber of commerce about the
formation of a band ' and reeolved
enconragoment sufficient to Justify
him moving' his family here. All
summer, the band has met re
ligiously and practiced and outside
the Fourth of July enaagemeat,
have never been recognised In any
civic movement where financial tap
port could be bad to coatmae their
orsanltloa. v " S
A conversation with the secretary
of tho chamber or commerce yes
terday Indicated that Mr. Seelak
came here on his own responsibility
and formed the band. After he was
here, a commlttco composod of A.
J. Voye, chairman, Fred Houston
and M. S. West were appointed to
solicit funds from the merchants
and others to further tho Interest
In the band and defray seme of the
Incidental expenses attendant to
formation. According to the sec
retary of the chambor of commerce,
no rojlort has been made whether
the funds were raised.
Tho band has answered all the
calls made on It for public service
both at the chambor -when the Port
land Ad club were hero and when
tbo Elks had visiting brothers here
a couplo of woeks aro Darin
tho Fourth of July, the band at
tracted much attention and when
tho street dance was staged on
Main street, the dancers had a
groat tlmo whirling and tripping on
tbo paromont to Ita music. The
band monitors say that they are
qulto willing to do thoir share at
all times. Ono member said, "All
of the musicians are local mon, not
floaters. This city Is large enouah
to support a good band and our
follows aro not greedy for money
wo want encouragement."
Fred Soelak, the leader, states
that this season he has spent $125
In promoting tho band and that ho
his no return of tho money up to
prosont. Ills time, he says can be
given gratis but ho would like to
bo reimbursed for the money ho
oxpeudod. Soelak atatos he has paid
soverol visits to tho chamber or
commorco and has held a number
of conferences with Secretary Stan
ley relatlvo to tho settlement of
this mnttor. Seelak, It seems, holds
tho chamber of commorco respnosl-
bio for the collection of this money
and for his coming hero to nro-
moto tho band.,
