For a year or more past the rooms
had been operated at a loss, and the
debt hanging over the association is in
the neighborhood of $1,300. This in

the directors, the balance being for
rent, salary, laundry service and other
items of supplies, lo meet this indebt
edness there is furniture valued at $500,

hoped can be secured by subscriptions.
No disposition has yet been made of
the library. The directors have the
consent of the international board to

It is a source of regret that it was
found necessary to close the rooms, and
yet the action mar after all create
more enthusiasm for the proposed -new,
T. M.' G. A. building, and thus prove,
The creation of the debt is largely
due to the addition of the dormitory,
which at the time promised to bo a
revenue producer. At the beginning
there was a good demand for the rooms,
but tho patronage did not long continue,
and the expenses were greater than the

The assets of this assocjation exceed

Money invested in this paid up
stock draws six per cent in
terest, payable semi-annually,
and may bo withdrawn at any time
upon thirty days notice, such notice
being waived where thete are funds in
the treasury to meet the withdrawal.

Street Signs are
Acting under instructions from the
city council, Chief of Police Frazier a
week or so ago notified all business men
who maintain sidewalk signs and post
signs to remove them by a certain
date, That time expired Friday, and
during the day all signs and posts were
removed. This ordor did not apply to
overhead electric signs which meet the
requirements of the ordinance relating
to signs. As a result of this innovation
the streets, and particularly Dewey,
present a much neater appearance
they look more citified.
The abolishment of these signs is
along the line of civic Improvement pro
posed by tho now administration, and
whilo some of tho business men effocted
did not take kindly to tho action, we
believe that all will agree that the
improved appearance of the streets
justifiod the movo.
The sidewalk sign stands had become
so numerous as to really provo n nuis
ance to pedostrians, and considerable
complaint had been made to the author
ities. Ready for Business.
